We're aware that the console launch is upcoming

 

My question is simple - how to we apply a Mod to override when it comes out?

 

Are there any plans for this?

 

I can apply Mods to phones in Beamdog's case simply but as I don't own any consoles am a bit mystified as to the delivery method for XBox / PS4 etc

 

I'd guess the easiest way to handle such stuff it with an existing large player (e.g. Nexus)


OK Fair warning has been applied

 

I'm gonna move the domain to https://perspak.com early Feb but will keep all content

 

There are reasons behind this move which basically boil down to unifying my release schedule

 

My friends are welcome to play (I'll set you up your own areas if you desire them)

 

Please note that this process is messy so may take a few weeks

Unfortunately the problem is that the console makers are VERY restrictive on this. Xbox gives you 2 options. They can host the content for a fee, or you can host the content yourself. No third party hosts like Nexus. Also all content must be verified to ensure it won't break the system.

 

Sony has all of those restrictions, plus you can't allow any uploading of custom files. So you can modify anything already in the base game, but you can't ever add anything new to it. This isn't just about textures and such either, you can't even add any code files that don't already exist.

 

I highly doubt getting mods on the consoles is going to be worth the investment right now. I just don't see Obsidian having the resources to follow those restrictions. Maybe being owned by Microsoft will give some new leeway here, though I doubt Sony would follow along.

I agree that the M$ ownership is a plus

 

I contacted Nexus yesterday and they say they won't do anything console related

 

This means to my mind that while it's possible a third party is required

 

There are, however, legal hoops to jump through as I know for a fact that certain Modders only accept Nexus as a platform

 

I could easily write an API that supplies the mod to a device

 

I'll go chat with @BMac
