Kingdom Come: Deliverance Modding Tools Released

  • Comment
Good news for Kingdom Come: Deliverance modders! Our friends at Warhorse Studios have just released their Official Modding Tools and documentation - unlocking all new possibilities for KC:D mods. 


The Modding Support update is the final DLC on the roadmap for Kingdom Come: Deliverance and we know some of you could hardly wait to get your hands on some more powerful tools. Your patience has been rewarded! All you need to do is install the latest update (1.9.3) for the game, download the tools and let your imagination run wild. This may be the last official update for Bohemia, but it is a new beginning for KC:D mods. 



You can pick up a copy of the official Modding Tools from the download page here. The package includes several applications tailored to specific elements of modding, a database dump for setting up a local version of the game database and the raw game data so you can see exactly how features were implemented into the world. Using these tools, you'll be able to add new quests, characters, locations, items and more. 



The good people at Warhorse have also added detailed documentation to our wiki to help you bring your creations to life. If you are unfamiliar with Kingdom Come, check out the Before You Start section which will guide you through setting up your system for modding. Once you've done that, you can dive into the Basic Mods section which explains how to complete some basic modding tasks such as adding new weapons, new levels and quests. There is also a wealth of in-depth information on how to use the modding tools themselves in the Tools section. 

The core of this wiki was written by the Warhorse Studios staff, but it would be incredibly difficult for them to cover all the advice and best practices. That's why anyone in the community can edit and add pages to the wiki to help newcomers and experienced modding veterans alike to create the best mods possible for Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Nexus Mods is already home to nearly 700 mods created without the official tools so we're excited to see what new creations the community will come up with.


Vortex enhancements

To make modding even easier for users, we're currently working on an update to the Kingdom Come: Deliverance extension in Vortex. Below is a sneak preview of the new "Load Order" tab which will allow you to set the priority of your mods inside Vortex, rather than manually editing your mod_order.txt or renaming the mod folders alphabetically. This will be part of the next major update to Vortex, along with several other cool new features and improvements. If you start modding with Vortex now, you will be able to seamlessly upgrade to the new version once it's available. Watch this space!



On behalf of the Nexus Mods community, I'd like to say a huge thank you to Warhorse Studios for making modding even more accessible in their game!

Do have a great idea for a mod in Kingdom Come? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section.

    My question is why is this news only visible in the kcd page when all the other articles around it can be seen anywhere.

      News can be game specific or site-wide. We don't often post game-specific news though. Another example is the two recent RDR2 articles :)

      Shouldn't game news be visible in the game news tab? there is a bunch of stuff there for TES why not this it seems like kind of big news to only be kept to the kcd area. get the word out there for people that never come here but might want to experiment modding something new.

      Everyone with news notification enabled will get informed about the post, it just won't show on every homepage. Your feedback is valid though, it'd be nice if it appeared on the "main" homepage too :)

    They waited until after all their own DLC was out before releasing mod tools? Gee. Thanks, guys. :clap:

    So, the new drag & drop load order thing in Vortex. Is this going to be for all games (and especially Bethesda games) or is it restricted just to this game?

    Im always happy to see modding tools, but really this should have been released from the start.
    I think they missed a huge opportunity to grow their game and learn from their players.

    Still though, I like the game and now I have an excuse to go back to it.

      I thought the same thing, maybe its a sign that the next game is going to take a while to produce and they want to give fans something to do in the meantime. But yes, this is late.

      The tool kit is basically Warhorse's Development Kit... You can essentially strip the game down to it's barebone and rebuild it from the ground up as a brand new game using the same assets if you so wished.

      I hope you are right! I fear they release this way too late however, the hype for KCD is long gone.

      I on the ther hand have been saving my 2nd Playthorugh for the Devkit release. Can't wait :)
      Please someone do a mod where the helmet visors acutally open on the model when you sheathe the sword. Looks so stupid with closed helmets in conversations...

    This is great news. I've been waiting for this. Now, just to wait a little longer for GOG to upload the 1.9.3 patch.

    The modding tools are 4.5gb and it looks like the download speed is capped to 2MB/s. Is it possible to have this specific file unrestricted to help people with high speeds pick it up faster?
