Made a mod? Here’s how to upload it to the Steam workshop.

Include these files in the root folder of your mod: info.json and thumb.png

Make sure the root folder of your mod includes these two files:

  • info.json
  • thumb.png

As an example, let’s look at the mod “Example: Editing Genres – [steamcommunity.com] “:

Here’s what the info.json file for that example mod looks like:

{
 "Title": "Example: Editing Genres",
 "Description": "Using genres.json and ignore.json to replace default music genres",
 "Author": "Glitch Pitch",
 "Version": "1.0",
 "Tags": ["example", "gameplay"]
}

And here’s what the thumb.png file looks like:

Step 3

Updating your mod will overwrite the description on the Steam workshop page with the description in your mod’s info.json, so if you want to keep a record of the old version, copy the text on the Workshop page and save a copy somewhere.

Step 4

Launch the game and open the “Mods” menu. You should see two copies of your mod: Steam and local.
