Please add the DLC blocks to ModSDK for well modding purposes. Thank you.

I think it's a bit weird they said modders could make use of the DLC blocks, provided we maintained the DLC tags in sbc files, but then don't actually give us the original model files in the SDK. So many things I want to do with the DLC blocks.

Has there been any official update on this? Maybe on a source outside of the support site that I just can't find? I'd love to add more visible and useful LCDs to the interior of the Industrial Cockpit but without the original model files that's pretty much a no go.

I think that may cause security complications that they don't want to deal with (and I know that their current "security" isn't worthy of being called security yet). Personally, I think they should slap the source assets into some folder in the base game when the item is purchased, like people do with sound tracks.

Whatever... I've given up honestly.

Resurrecting this as I've just been looking through the SDK model files and it looks like there are 'fragments' of stuff from Decorative Pack 2 DLC in there now. One of the Grated Catwalk's LOD 0 model plus construction stages for several others, Medical Station LOD 0 - 3 but no construction stage models, Jukebox LOD 0 - 3 models but no construction stage models... Probably some others too but it's hard sifting through hundreds of files looking for obvious names.


I'm guessing this is an oversight from someone but it brought this request back to my mind.

I'd really like to see some actual feedback on this issue other than 'submitted'. Is there a reason we can't have access to these model files in the SDK to use in mods under the rule that we have to maintain appropriate DLC tags?

I mean, there's literally an export model option built in to the game so if people really wanted to rip parts of a model out they can already do that why not just make it official and have some level of control over it?

Yeah, i saw it as well. Lol, wished it was the full block grated stair so I could make a non - railed grated stair. 😑

I think problem here is that DLCs need to be bought and giving them out for modding community would effectively kill this as mods in general are free. No idea is it possible to find compromise solution here.
