Information about adding a Mod to the Resources

Due to human (non-bot) spam the first contribution of a user has to be reviewed and activated manually, all further contributions do not require this.
As long as a user does not have at least one reviewed and activated contribution, the user is unable to edit his profile, set a avatar, title picture or a signature.
  • Getting your mods for Eco listed on the Resources-Page is very simple and doesn't require a lot of time.
    In this little guide i'll walk you through the process of adding a new mod to Eco Mods.

    When you've clicked on "Resources" in the navigation you'll see a list of mods that have been published on Eco Mods.
    We currently seperate the resources in three categories; Server Mods, Webapp Mods and Tools.

    Once you've clicked on the yellow "Add resource" button you'll choose the category your mod belongs too.
    You'll be then greeted with a new page where you need to fill out some forms.

    • Title - The name/title of your mod.
    • Version - The version number of your mod.
    • Tag line - A "one-line" description of your mod.

    After filling out these three forms you can then decide to if you want to:

    • Upload and host your mod on Eco Mods
    • OR
    • Provide your own download link (own website, dropbox ect.)

    You can then link to the source code and mention other contributors if you want to.
    You'll then have to choose the Eco versions your mod is compatible with. (Use CTRL+LClick for multiple options).
    Now you can get a bit more creative while creating your main description of your mod.
    Optionally you can add some tags and enter an additional URL for more informations about your mod.

    Now that you've filled out the forms you can go ahead and click on the green "Save" button and your mod will be published on Eco Mods.
    Once your mod has been published you'll receive a special forum badge to let everybody know that you've released a mod on our website.

    [JUMPTOGOAL="approvingmods"]Approving Mods[/JUMPTOGOAL]

    In Order to keep our users safe from downloading malicious mods and software we decided to manually test and approve every resource as well as any updates made to them instead of listing them publicly without any form of verification to ensure that the resource is clean and harmless. With that said, we're trying to keep the downloads safe for our community, but we can't guarantee it.

    Please allow up to 24 hours for us to approve your resource or update.
