Video Training for Mars Modmaking
To facilitate the making of mods for Take On Mars, Bohemia Interactive is releasing a new video series: Mars Mod-Maker's Manual. The videos will provide a guide around modding capabilities of the game and its engine. The first chapter, called Data Structure & Modifications, has been released and shows how the game's data is structured. The following videos should be released within the next few months. The files that the game accesses include not just the textures and models, but also C code for the game mechanics. Thus, any total conversion is possible and modders can practically make a completely different game on the same engine as a mod for Take On Mars. While this game may not reach the same level of popularity among the modders as some bigger titles, having a very mod-friendly game is always welcome.
