Instructions

  1. In Besiege, open the console with Ctrl+K.
  2. Run command with arguments: createmod
  3. Run command with arguments: createassembly
  4. In Unity, create an asset bundle with the required skyboxes and stick it into the /<mod_name>/Resources folder of your mod.
    • Add +<elevation>,<azimuth> (replacing <elevation> and <azimuth> with the appropriate numbers) to the end of the skybox file name to set the sun angle.
    • You may need to look up how to import skyboxes into Unity.
    • You may need to look up how to put things into asset bundles in Unity.
  5. Follow the instructions on how to add asset bundles to your mod.[wiki.spiderlinggames.co.uk]
  6. In Visual Studio, open your mod project file (in the /src folder of your mod).
  7. Add ObjectExplorer.dll to your solution’s references.
    • You can find it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\346010\1566687579\ObjectExplorer.
    • You may need to look up how to add resources to a project.
  8. Open Mod.cs.
  9. Replace the contents of this file with
    using Modding;
    
    namespace <namespace>
        public class Mod : ModEntryPoint {
            public override void OnLoad() {
                SkyboxController.LoadSkyboxes(ModResource.GetAssetBundle("<bundle name>"));
            }
        }
    }
    • Replace <namespace> with something unique.
    • Replace <bundle name> with whatever you called the asset bundle in the manifest.
  10. Compile the assembly with F6.

Your skyboxes should now be available in Object Explorer.
