I’ve been wanting to make my own custom resources.dat and other things (objects, items etc)
But I can’t seem to find any guide for it, like a step by step for someone who’s new into modding

Can anyone like link me a video or help me through a reply
Any help is appreciated

  1. ok so you don’t make a resources.dat. The resource.dat is created/edited whenever the resources on your map are added or changed, such as baking trees and bushes.
  2. A simple google search will give you many tutorials on how to make custom objects, items, and resources. However I will link some of the popular ones here.

Official tutorial for objects by Nelson:

Trees by mooki2much:

Vehicles by Rain’s Mods:

Master Bundling by Spebby:

Hope this helps!


Thanks for the links, I will look at them when I need for my project

I did mean the resources, gravel, asphalt etc
I found a video or something on it a couple of days ago and I can’t seem to find it

For example like the California map, they changed the colors of the resources

Thanks for the help again :slight_smile:

Ah, you mean Materials. In that case, here’s a steam guide by Spebby:

Oh…my bad
