Mods for Sword of the Stars: The Pit are files and/or programs that change the game's content from what the original version had.  Mods can affect the configuration files, source code, sprites, or any combination thereof. 

Config File Mods[edit | edit source]

Mods that alter the config files change the .xnb files located in the "Content" subdirectory of the game's install folder. If you are using steam on windows the default directory is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\The Pit". It is advisable to make a backup of the "Content" folder before overwriting the original files. 

Source Code Mods[edit | edit source]

Source code mods change game behavior and must use a patch program to update ThePit.exe. Like other mods, it is best to make a backup before making any changes.
