The wait is over for fans of Lionhead's god sim who want to create their own mods for the game.
A news post on the official Black&White 2 website has announced that modding tools are now available. What's more, a modding competition is said to start next week. The modding tools include the following:
- LionheadUnstuffer: Unstuffs the everything.stuff file. Some of the unstuffed files may be needed by the other tools.
- Landscape Editor: Pretty self explanatory. You will need to unstuffy things first. This tool also includes the special effects editor.
- Script Compiler: Write your own scripts. These scripts are use to make challenges, create cut scense and run the enemy AI.
- Script Language Documentation: All the functions. There's lot's here, so expect to be overwhelmed (and there may be a few errors).
For all the details and information on where to download the tools, head over to the official Black&White 2 website.
