Using project template

You must ensure that file paths are correct for your system before you can start building.

In MyPartialityMod.csproj the following paths must be according to your system:

...
<Reference Include="UnityEngine">
<HintPath>C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Outward\Outward_Data\Managed\UnityEngine.dll</HintPath>
</Reference>
<Reference Include="Assembly-CSharp">
<HintPath>C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Outward\Outward_Data\Managed\Assembly-CSharp.dll</HintPath>
</Reference>
<Reference Include="HOOKS-Assembly-CSharp">
<HintPath>C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Outward\Outward_Data\Managed\HOOKS-Assembly-CSharp.dll</HintPath>
</Reference>
...

If you want to use Visual Studio Code tasks, the following path in .vscode/tasks.json must be according to your system:

...
{
"label": "Deploy .dll (Steam)",
"type": "shell",
"windows": {
"command": "Copy-Item",
"args": [
"-Path",
" {workspaceFolder}\\bin\\Debug\\MyPartialityMod.dll",
"-Destination",
             --->     "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Steam\\steamapps\\common\\Outward\\Mods",
"-Force"
]
},
...

Using Partiality Launcher

To install and activate your mod in Outward you must use Partiality Launcher.

  1. Download Partiality Launcher
  2. Unzip PartialityLauncher.zip & open PartialityLauncher.bat
  3. In Partiality Launcher click File, Open Game & find Outward.exe (normally C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Outward)
  4. Now you have a new folder called Mods where Outward.exe is
  5. (Optional) If the "APPID of the game" is empty, put 794260 (Outward's Steam AppID)
  6. Put your mod's .dll file in the Mods folder
  7. In Partiality Launcher click Refresh Mod List
  8. Tick your .dll file
  9. Click Apply Mods
  10. Done!

You will not have to reuse Partiality Launcher except when you add more mods to the Mods folder, but if you experience weird issues, you can use Partiality Launcher to "Refresh Mod List", "Clear Mod Metadata" & "Apply Mods".
