For the files in the mod-builder you want imported/included you add your textures from that folder and build the mod basically.

Then the result should be a .dfmod that when said mod is enabled replacing the textures just like the loose file method does, but more compact.
I tried to build a mod with daggerfall tools but i can't get it work. built an empty mod then put the pngs i made in the streamingassets/textures folder, it didn't change anything. Can you explain to me what do i do step by step? and i checked the first couple of posts, still couldn't figure it out.

Alright, if somebody does not beat me to it. I'll make a short video to try and break down the process for your case specifically where you are just trying to add images and build them into a .dfmod file. I'll post it whenever I get done with it, hopefully.

Here is that video tutorial I promised, it's a bit longer than I wanted it to be, but it's fairly comprehensive for your specific question:

Thank you so much! I finally did it, there were so many pngs for my armor texture that .dfmod format was a must.

Looks great, very glad the effort was worth it in the end!

You don't need to do that, you can name differently and put them in streamingassets/textures/CifRci. As for the naming part, you can name them like FACE07I0.CIF_4-0

"FACE07I0.CIF" is the archive and "4-0" is record-frame.

I just got up and running with this. Super excited to learn DFU modding! :D

I have a few questions, comments and suggestions. They are mostly about documentation:

I was pretty confused at the start. A major reason for this is I'm also new to Unity and wasn't quite sure how to set everything up to the point where the tutorials start. I think learning to make mods for DFU would also be a great way to learn Unity itself, and it would be nice if you didn't assume that an aspiring modder already has experience with it.

It was also a bit confusing and overwhelming to search through the forum for the answers that I was looking for. Is there any documentation besides the API reference, the modding section of the main website, and this forum post? Maybe you could combine all of this into DocFX? I'm not familiar with DocFX specifically, but I've worked with a similar docgen system for python called Sphinx. Keeping all docs with the source is helpful in many ways for everyone involved. Sphinx can basically be turned into a wiki that has pages for specific code components, and it looks like DocFX can be used in a very similar way.

I'd love to help in whatever way I can to improve this. Draft/edit/write documentation? Provide feedback while I learn?
