TAMods  0.4
Customization mod for Tribes:Ascend
TAMods Lua scripting API documentation


TAMods is a tool that allows the players to customize their Tribes:Ascend. From interface color changes to custom sounds and projectiles, there's a lot you can change now to make Tribes Ascend exactly how you want it to be.

For users who can't or don't want to code, there's also a configuration tool that allows to configure all the basic features really easily.

This documentation is aimed at players who want to extend the features even more, and provide the Mods they're able to make to the community.


Programming knowledge

The whole scripting API for the mods is in Lua, but even if you don't know Lua it's a relatively simple programming language and there are some examples of what you can do with the mods, so if you follow these you should be fine.

If you don't know how to code at all but you're interested, please give it a go anyway. There are a lot of tutorials about Lua to get you started.

Unreal Engine 3

To edit the projectiles you will need a bit of Unreal Engine 3 knowledge, but here again by playing around with the values and the examples you should be able to do what you want after some time. Also, don't hesitate to ask for help if you're stuck somewhere.


If you managed to do something useful, interesting or even just funny with the mods, please share it with the community. The game is still alive, we as developers are doing our best to bring new content and updates, but now it's time for the community to step up and show what you can do.


These examples must be copy/pasted in custom.lua in your config folder to work.
