Self-contained mods \ Standalone \ Planetbase custom code:


Recommended Posts

Self-sufficient mods are those mods for which you do not need to install separate engines (platforms) for mods (additional software).

Usually these are mods that already contain embedded software inside them. For example, such software as in the mod engine from JPFarias.
Pluses of these mods:
- for their work, you do not need to install additional software with the mod engine (platform).
Cons of these mods:
- most likely a similar mod will not work with other mods at the same time.

- If the game has been updated, then such mods no longer work on new versions of the game.


In this tutorial, you can find an example of a self-contained\standalone cheat-mod:

There are custom mods that are not described on the Nexusmods website.
Such mods were made for old versions of the game and they do not work with new versions of the game and with other mods.

Perhaps, when developing a new mod, it will be useful to look at the capabilities of such custom mods and their source code.

Some old standalone mods were able to do things that the mods currently featured on the Nexusmods site can't do.


Below is a list with a description of some self-contained mods:


1) Planetbase Hack (v1.0.2 stable) (cheat mod source code)


Description of the author of the mod:

"Tools used: ILSpy + Reflexil plugin

  • Spawn Resources

  • Trigger Events (Solarwinds / Dust Storms etc...)
  • Unlock Tech and Goals
  • Increase map size by 4
  • Build without the need of a link to another building
  • Increased maximum constructions from 200 to 20000
  • Console UI

"The code below are the modifications I made to the original dll.

I cba to post a step by step instruction.
Programmers should be able to follow this.

Inside the class Planetbase.GuiMenuSystem add the following

Inside the same class Planetbase.GuiMenuSystem modify the init function".


Map size is increased by 4 times.

You can now build without the need of a link to another construction.

I did already add the buttons to enable or disable these features.

I've added a GUI for the console.
