Category Button

This mod adds the ability for mod makers to add buttons that have multiple buttons. Also groups the bridges in the paths menu.

How to use

The category buttons works as you think it would, it adds another layer of buttons to use. But u can also use SHIFT + MOUSE SCROLL to switch between buttons of the same group.

Modders: how to use

  1. Add the CategoryButton package to the the project.
  2. Create a specification which looks like the following:
  "Name": "CategoryBridges",
  "ToolGroup": "Paths",
  "ToolOrder": 300,
  "ButtonIcon": "Bridges.png",
  "Buildings": [
  "DisplayNameLocKey": "Tobbert.CategoryBridges.DisplayName"
  1. Change the values based on your category.
  2. Add an image with the name that you filled in under "ButtonIcon" and place it in "assets\CategorySprites".
  3. Done!


Recommended way to install this mod is through Thunderstore. You can install this plugin manually by cloning the repo, building it and adding the dll to your bepinex plugins folder. This plugin is dependent on the magnificent TimberAPI.
