Using mods

Using mods in Timberborn is not currently a streamlined process. For installing Timberborn mods, there are a couple of "mod managers" and the manual installation route. None of these are covered in-depth by this wiki.

If modding becomes officially supported, it will be covered by this wiki. That being said, keep reading to find out the requirements to use mods.
