Ever since the release of the Patch on June 23, 2015, Trove has implemented a new directory to allow players to install mods easily into their game without harming any of the game files that may result in internal crashes or possibly having to uninstall the game. Mods can be installed in two different ways, Manually through the game's files or using the official Trove Toolbox Mod Loader. This guide will show you how to install your mod in both ways.
For manual installation, we were provided "override" folders to place our modified files into. This override folder is created as a sub-directory and must be manually created for each folder mod files are placed into.
You will need to first download the Mod you want to install to your game. Most Mods will be in a compressed/.zip folder where you will need to extract the files and modes to the correct location.
BlueprintsThe Mod will have a set number of blueprints for each part of the model that the mod will replace. With the files you extracted, you need to move the .blueprint files into the game's blueprint files in a folder called "override" which can be found here:
NOTE: you might need to create a folder called "override" within the blueprints folder in order for the mod to work properly
For Glyph Users
C:\Program Files (x86)\Glyph\Games\Trove\Live\blueprints\override
For Steam Users
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Trove\Games\Trove\Live\blueprints\override
Some Mods will have custom VFX to their mod. Like the blueprints, it can be put in the same way but in a different directory:
NOTE: you might need to create a folder called "override" here as well within the particles folder in order for the mod to work properly
For Glyph Users
C:\Program Files (x86)\Glyph\Games\Trove\Live\particles\VFX\Particles\override
For Steam Users
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Trove\Games\Trove\Live\particles\VFX\Particles\override
Once you have the files in place, you can run the game and the Mod should now work. Keep in mind that the mods WILL replace an existing model, the mod should have detailed in what the mod will replace (for example a Dracolyte Costume Mod might replace the Starter leveled costume).
Uninstalling the mod when you have installed it manually is a very easy task in this case. Just simply delete the folder "override" to "uninstall" mods you've installed in the game.
Installing via Mod Loader (Trove Toolbox)
What you need:
Any modloader (recommended Trove Toolbox) Trove game (either by Steam or Glyph)
Let's start. First, go to download any modloader or use Trove Toolbox. You can get it in the Trovesarus Mod Loader (a.k.a Trove Toolbox) website. Then when you are done, you will need any mod made for Trove. You can make it yourself by just renaming the file name to any other file name that you want to be replaced in Trove. When you do it you will have .rar file to install the mod. Open Trove Toolbox then go to "My Mods" then "Add Mod" and choose your .rar file where the mod is located. Then just press "Apply Mod", go in the game, and you are set to go!
