    Hey people,

    Apologies if this thread exists already, had a quick hunt and could not find anything.

    Would love to convert some of my mods to work on the XXL game and possibly even consider adding more

    So the question is, how is this done?

    :dm3:

    I think some mods can be converted by changing the tags. Others I don't know if it's shaders or not.

    I'd try the tags first and see if that works.

    Thanks Funky!

    Does the new Community Tool support the 2nd UV channels and shader pack shaders?

    What are the tag differences between XL and XXL?

    Hello Eano. Nice to see you!

    Yes, it does support 2nd uv channels and it contains compatible versions of the old shaders, so old mods should work if the Community Mod is installed. Only the transparent shader doesn't work properly yet.

    They added new style tags and the MSNOCOLLISION and MSOVERWATER tags don't work anymore.
