Overview[edit | edit source]
The game has modding hooks which allow modders to add additional content and features. Game XML files may be edited using the XPath system, which allows XML changes without editing the vanilla XML files, directly from the Mods folder of the game. The term "modlet" has been adopted by the modding community to describe mods that are loaded from the Mods folder, as opposed to direct XML edits of the game's main Data/Config folder.

Additional information on Modlets may be found here.
An XPath tutorial has been written to help get modders familiar with the available syntax.
For information on the proper structure of a Modlet, please visit the Mod Structure section.
