One difficulty that mod developers often run into when designing rather complex mods is that it becomes really difficult to teach players how to use the mod to its fullest potential. They put in multitudes of great features into the mod but they aren’t ever used because the players utilizing said mods simply don’t know how to and it can be a rather tedious task teaching them outside the game through other ways like videos and such. Fortunately, the Guide-API mod allows developers to overcome this issue by giving them a simply and convenient way to create all the in-game documentation that they need to.
Using Guide-API mod is a really simple and straightforward task and once you finally figure out how to do so you’ll be able to create all the in-game documentation you want. Simply put, what it basically does is that it creates a sort of in-game book and then you can fill that book up with all the necessary information that needs to be communicated to the players. Then, once the players run the mod in question, they’ll be able to conveniently read all this information through the same in-game book and that makes the whole learning process much easier.
The best part about Guide-API mod is that it can be used by both newcomers and experienced users. There are various ways to make use of it, there are simple methods that can be utilized by those who only want to use the very basic features of the API but if you’re an experienced user who’d like to use it to its absolute fullest then you can use the slightly more complicated method to add it to your project. The latter might take a bit of extra effort but it’s well worth it due to all the useful features it gives access to.
