Sample Mods[edit | edit source]

One of the most helpful things you can do when you’re starting out with modding is to take a look at sample mods that actually work and start from there, or use a template to help you create a certain mod. Here are a collection of Sample Mods and Templates designed to help you create a finished product.

General Sample Mods[edit | edit source]

These sample mods either have several to offer or work for multiple types of mods.

Outfits and Armours[edit | edit source]

  • Mod Builder by ReallyLazyIcarus. A python script that generates a folder workspace and empty lsx in the correct format to be converted with the multitool. Recommended.
  • BG3 Equipment Generator by ByteBard.
    • Extremely helpful tool that does most of the work of armor/weapon generation for you.

Unfortunately a lot of template armour mods are out of date, usually because the mod tools became more efficient. For example most of the race UUIDS mentioned on these are defunct and some of the metas don't work. They are still useful to learn from and much of the code will still work, but it is not recommended to use them as a template.
