NidToolbox Light

Modular set of server tools for Eco

** powered by and compatible with em-framework **

nid-core base module


NidToolbox Light brings back the old NidToolbox plugin for previous versions of Eco, in more manageable and modular format this time around.

Each module works independently, being versioned separately - with only nid-core component being required. Server admins can mix and match modules they need for their servers.

This project is a work in progress aiming to overtime bring back all of the features of old NidToolbox to Eco 9.0+. As I sadly don't have as much time to work on the project as before, modules will be released as I develop them. Your patience is appreciated <3.

Support is provided as well as suggestions are accepted on my Discord here

It is not required, but if you would like to support the development of the plugin, donations are accepted here

Core module does not do anything by itself and to get any functionality out of it, you need to download one of the available modules. Documentation and installation instructions are available at the module's page. You can find all the links below.

Currently available modules: (click the names to view)

    Version 1.1

  • Version 1.0.3


    Before installing this version, make sure you remove any old versions of both:

    1. nid-core.dll

    2. em-framework.dll

    from the Server\Mods folder.

    New correct locations are:

    1. For nid-core.dll                Mods\NidToolbox\

    2. For em-framework.dll Mods\Elixir Mods\

    This change is made to comply with the Developers request to move all mod's respective .dll files to their properly named folders.

    For more information see the updated section - How to Install, on the main plugin page.


    Version 1.0.3

    • Enforces new locations for nid-core and em-framework.
    • Added names and filenames sanitising methods.
    • Fixed module naming in Server Configurator GUI.
  • Version 1.0.2

    Version 1.0.2:

    • This update changes the default location for all NidToolbox' modules configuration files. New location for config files is: [Server]\Configs\Mods\NidToolbox
    • This change is in line with the new recommendations from the Developers on better mods organisation. Mods folder should only ever contain exact module files the dlls.
    • Some service hosters like Nitrado, have already started implementing this change and all your files that are still located in Mods folder that are not .dll, will either be ignored or hidden.
    • Modules folder should stay as it is, as it only contains the allowed .dll files for each of the NidToolbox' components.
    • You will get a warning in console as well as in log, should your Mods folder still contain any of the config files.
    • To retain your settings, simply move your NidToolbox' config files from Server\Mods\NidToolbox to [Server]\Configs\Mods\NidToolbox
