DESCRIPTION

This mod allows the editing of a part's raw XML attributes from the designer, instead of editing the craft's XML save file in the game's files. To get started, enable the mod and then select a part and open the part properties window, and there should be an extra "Edit XML" button at the top of the part properties window.


For some more information on how some of the properties you can edit work, you can look here. The descriptions are not complete, so if anyone would like to help out by filling in info, that would be welcomed, but make sure to read on the page how to add descriptions, rather than editing the generated files directly.

Update 2020-06-09

For those who have the mod already installed, please redownload this new version that should work with newer versions of SR2. Source code for those who want to read it is here.

    It's quite odd just how many people ask for android support without checking the comments for why that isn't the case

    @br0then No. There are no mods for Android due to Google's policy.

    I find a bug: select a command pod or a command chip, edit its xml and apply, then you can't save this craft, nor can you launch it. All the blue buttons don't work.

    @WNP78 OH MY GOD BELIEVE IT OR NOT I ACCIDENTALLY FOUND OUT WHY IT WASN'T WORKING, I RE-OPENED THE TAB ON THE INTERNET BY ACCIDENT AND THEN DOWNLOADED IT. IT WORKS NOW. Thanks WNP78 :D

    @WNP78 Well now it's just getting fustrating, I will tell you what it does: I click download PC/MAC (I am on PC) Then the Disclaimer of warranty page with the next download button comes up, I then click DOWNLOAD, then what I assume is Steam, opens up a few files which don't say anything about SR2. When I find SR2 I click on it and find a mods folder, there is no option to install anything whatsoever, I click open and it just opens up an empty file. It does nothing else

    @AeroplaneBuilder no, you shouldn't need to be on the GitHub. The blue "PC / Mac" button above should download the Overload.sr2-mod file.

    @WNP78 Well, I clicked the Github download link, went onto the page. Clicked the mod to download it but steam opens up some files (none of which are SR2mods) I then find SR2 and attempt to find a place to save it but I can't. I also have no clue how the hell I downloaded it the first time and it's getting pretty fustrating. The help page really needs to be more clear as well.

    @AeroplaneBuilder SR2 has no steam workshop - you may be confusing it with SimplePlanes. For instructions on installing mods, open the mods page on the website (Content -> Mods) and click the green "Help" button at the top.

    @WNP78 sorry to ask for help again but, I have checked several forums and none of them seem to show me how to install a mod. The first time I installed this mod I got it off the steam workshop. I cannot find the steam workshop mod page for SR2 again. I have clicked download, the files page comes up and then I can't seem to save/load the mod from anywhere?

    @AeroplaneBuilder @givenys @stuwart The mod has now been updated as the update was released to the main branch.

    @WNP78 Ah, I kind of forgot I had SR on beta, the mods always used to work fine. Thank you for your advice!

    @AeroplaneBuilder If it's stopped working, this is likely because you're on an "experimental" build. That understandably means it's for testing new features, and may cause issues. If you want compatibility with mods, stick to release builds of the game and we should get it working by the time we release to the main branch.

    It isn't working anymore, kinda annoying because it is my favourite mod.
