Learn to mod
To the right is a box with links to tutorials. There are several kinds of mods:
- Mods which move items around in the game. Example: placing all of the magazines in the Safe House
- Mods which change the appearance of items in the game (reskin). Example: Changing the color and design of Chuck's jacket.
- Mods which create new items, missions, or characters. Example: Creating a bow and arrow which electrocutes zombies
- Mods which swap around the skins (appearances) of items or characters (model swaps). Example: A player can play as Rebecca.
- Mods which unlock items or abilities in the game. Example: Unlock all cars
The program Gibbed's is a necessity in modding. It allows the modder to unpack (open) original files and repack edited files. Follow these instructions to download Gibbed's.
Once Gibbed's is downloaded, it is recommended that you try the easiest type of mod first, adding, moving, and removing items in the game. See Mod:Adding new items for instructions how.
- The Bigfile.xml is a file Gibbeds creates. Unpacking with QuickBSM you'll notice there is no Bigfile.
