BK pointed out an interesting question on the Steam forum. I'll repost here for convenience.

I LOVE the New Horizons mod! It takes an already great game, and pushes it beyond all expectations.

It inspires me to want to mod the game, myself, though.
Are there any real tools out there, for doing that? Adding units, items, buildings, resources, etc., and modding heroes, for example?

Modding the descriptions is easy, and I've already done some of that. I also, KIND OF, have a foggy notion of how to "manually" mod other things, but I'd love to have something easier to use.

There's a link to some kind of "modding tool", but Steam has removed the download button (and indicated that it probably linked to some form of malware, or other), so I'm a bit wary, but I'd LOVE to be able to tinker with Eador:Genesis, and take 'New Horizons' just a little bit further, in my own directions.

I'm sure I can't be the only one, out there?

P.S. I actually liked the addition of the 'Witcher' unit. It was a nice touch, with unusual abilities, and nicely supported by game-text. I'm personally all for keeping Witchers in the game. It's nice to see a game using broader, less generic, and even more modern, fantasy references. For that matter, there's a host of other units, and "races", I have in mind to add, including referencing additional Russian, Finnish, Slavic, Celtic, Norse, Chinese, and Japanese myths--and moving the fantasy "theme" further away from Western themes, and further "East", in general.

There's a long-running "Genesis Modding questions" thread here:

Also, the "dat" format comes from Allegro game library.

I use the command-line tool, because I'm old school.
