Getting Started

In the editor, press the CREATE MOD button



You'll get a prompt to name your mod. Name it something awesome!



You'll need to put your name and a mod description too



Then get started on the Empty Map



And you're off to create your mod!



After this your Content Browser will display a folder with the mod contents. It'll be in the list. First you'll find the folder titled "Maps" in there, and an empty map. You can now populate the mod contents.

After you're done with the contents, you can upload the mod to Steam Workshop. For this you will need to launch Steam on your PC (logged in under your accounts that owns Hello Neighbor), and use the Upload to Steam button. Simply choose your mod from the dropdown and wait for it to upload.



You can also use the Packaging tool to share your mod as a separate file



Once it's packaged it'll give you a success message
