ModConfig File Edit

For a folder in the Mods directory to be a valid mod, it must have the ModConfig.json file, and the file must be a valid JSON.

Even an empty JSON will be accepted (you can then use the Mod Upload Tool to edit the missing information, if you prefer not to modify the JSON file yourself).

{ }

The ModConfig file provides Judgment and the Mod Upload Tool with metadata about the mod, such as it's title, description and tags. It also contains a unique identifier for Steam Workshop, which is created automatically by the mod upload tool, and should not be edited manually.

Note: If you copy the ModConfig.json from another mod, be sure to delete the uid line, or it will replace the other mod when you try to upload it to Steam.

ModConfig Format Edit

ModConfig.json must be a valid JSON file, and may contain the following fields:

Field Description Comments
