Illusion Games Modding  [edit]

Basic concepts

The concept of modding basically boils down to modifying the data read by the game to change the game's behavior. Common things to mod including translation of in-game buttons (which are pictures), in-game story (which are text), clothing (textures), and skin/uncensor (textures).

The data that needs to be modified are often packed in a larger file. Thus a modder first needs to use a tool to extract the data out, modify it, then put it back in.

Different games may have different details in how data are packaged, and what needs to be modded.

Common tools
