One thing before we start, these are tiles, not a*sets. A tile would be a level 3 warehouse for example, an a*set would be a survival tree for example.
Hope that clears some things up.
Getting the tiles.
Go to Your Drive:\Steam\steamapps\common\Scrap Mechanic\Survival\Terrain\Tiles, this is where you find the survival tiles. Search around in the folder to get the tiles you want. If you want the warehouses, they are in the poi folder. There are three files for tiles, .tile, .export and the icons which are pngs. I wanted the level 4 warehouse tile, so I copied Warehouse_Exterior_4Floors_256_01.tile.export, Warehouse_Exterior_4Floors_256_01.tile and b626a6fa-5930-4196-99dd-bf36f629bd0d.png.
Paste them on your desktop for example, we are going to copy some more things later.
Actually getting them into creative mode.
Note: the tiles are just cosmetic, no loot, enemies and such will spawn. You wont be able to get inside warehouses.
Go to C:\Users\your user\AppData\Roaming\Axolot Games\Scrap Mechanic\User\User_LongNumber\Tiles. Make a new folder there, go to https://www.uuidgenerator.net/version4 and get yourself a UUID. Rename your folder to that UUID you copied. Go inside the folder, and drop in the .tile, .export and icon. Create a .txt file in there, and name it decription.json. Make sure its not description.json.txt, it should be just description.json. Paste in the following code:
“dependencies” : null,
“localId” : “”,
“name” : “”,
“type” : “Tile”,
“version” : 0
Paste in your folder’s UUID in the quotation marks after “localid”, and also paste in the name of the icon you copied earlier in the quotation marks after “name”. The name can be anything you want really, but I prefer entering the icon’s name.
After youre done with this, go into the world builder and place down your tiles!
The future of this guide.
I will try to get some survival a*sets working, and if succeed then Ill update the guide with how to get them into the tile builder.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy the tiles!
