Hello everyone.

I'm making my owm mods called Modern Naval Weapon System, in due to too many parts it contains, I would like to give it a Category for itself when people go into the VAB/SHP.

How can I know where to start?

Or where can I find some references?

THX

To create your own category button you will need a 32x32 PNG image in black [normal] and in white [selected]. Then create the config with just this:

MODCAT
{
    folderName = path1;path2;path3;
    normalPath = pathtoblackicon
    selectedPath = pathtowhiteicon
    title = mod name
}

Each path leads to any folder where you keep your parts. No spaces, never include "GameData" when you write a path.

The title can contain spaces and is the mouseover text for the category button.

This is pure stock.

If at any point you want to use a shared category (like life support or things that work wit Extraplanetary Launchpads) then you'll need to get familiar with Community Category Kit which is very similar and has documentation.

Thanks a lot!

It is just what I need!
