Q&A: Will existing Mods work with new build?
This question was possibly duplicated with a more recent answer: March 16th, 2021 Livestream Mod highlight part 2 Q&A: We broke mods with Update 4, how does the community make them work again? https://youtube.com/embed/Gdz6SUv9Om4?autoplay=1&start=10364&end=10560
that's what we need well existing mods would work with the new build no idea we don't actually support those mods they're unofficial mods so they often break when we make updates because we don't we we kind of keep them in mind it's not that we don't keep them in mind completely but uh we do think about it a little bit but it will never our priority is is is not to is maintaining unofficial mods is not a priority of ours yes we have to charge forward with the game it kind of is in a sense but not like it at that like not at night not not the same level that we do with the regular game yeah exactly like we will because because we work with the modders yeah we spend a significant time like trying to help out the modders and like answer their questions and like trying to figure out solutions to problems they're having yeah um but yeah there's a line always that we have to draw like we also have to support the game itself yeah it was like the way the way you're gonna think about it is like we want to we if you can imagine there's a satisfactory 1.0 right and that looks like a specific thing and that could look different to what it is now you know there are different items the game might feel a little different whatever that satisfactory 1.0 amoeba ball thingy video game is we all need to always assume that we're going to get to that point and function from there and so making certain changes or or spending a lot of time trying to get things working uh spending spending resources to make the game in its current state function as opposed to move forward to that 1.0 little game that we want to get to is is a little counterproductive so we always need to even if it means what's that what's that saying it's like pain is temporary glory is forever or something like that someone knows that saying and that's kind of what it is we're going to be willing to uh that's correct pain is temporary glory is forever yeah something like that painful glory
