Currently, you will need to own the game on Steam in order to access the tools. To download them, you should head to your Library page and select TOOLS from the list filter. You can then search for Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord - Modding Kit and proceed to download the tools after accepting the Mod Tools License Agreement. Please note that you will need to have the game installed for the tools to work. Likewise, your game version and tool version need to match in order for the tools to operate.

With tools in hand, you can then head over to http://docs.modding.bannerlord.com/ to access the modding documentation. Please be aware that these are living documents and, as such, they will be adjusted and updated over time. With that in mind, if you experience any issues or have any feedback you would like to share in regards to the documentation, you can head on over to the Official Modding Documentation thread. Similarly, you can go to the Official Tools section of our modding forums to provide suggestions and report any problems you run into while using the modding tools. And if forums aren’t really your thing, you can join the Modding Discord to find like-minded users to discuss the tools with.

For those of you that are new to modding, or for those that simply want to get up to speed with our tools, you can check out this recent Developer Workshop livestream where we gave a detailed overview of the scene editor and its many features. We hope to share more content like this in the near future, so make sure to follow our channels to keep up to date with those announcements.


Finally, we just want to say how thrilled we are to be able to share these tools with you all! There are already so many amazing mods out there and others with huge potential that are still in the works, and we are just happy to be involved and to be able to support these kinds of efforts with the release of this first batch of tools. So, on that note, we want to give a huge shoutout and thanks to our amazing modding community, in particular the testing group that helped us to bring these to release, and say that we are truly excited to see what you manage to accomplish with these tools!

I only see the "Editor" option in the main menu if I launch the game via the beta modding tool kit in Steam. Starting via the standard game there is no "Editor" option and you can press CTRL+E till the cows come home and it will do nothing. Somebody forget to mention something vital????

Clicking the Editor button after launching via the beta modding kit brings up the scene editor and nothing else.
 
tried to validate the files of both the game and modding tools? maybe something got corrupted, also try to completely remove your mods if you have any
I have no mods active and have verified both game and tool files. Both are on the same SSD in the same location. Both are using the same versions. I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling both.

Is there any news about modding tools? When are we gonna get more (or remaining) features? What are those tool will be? Friendly reminder about this topic deserves more attention.
 
What about us who bought the game on GOG? (At the full price, I might add.)

I'm currently struggling to write a mod without the tools. Verily, it bloweth the thick one. Really, I don't want to have to write a mod at all, but the mod I'm looking for doesn't seem to exist, so I don't have much of a choice.

So, having to write a mod in the first place is a PITA, but trying to do it without the mod tools 'coz I'm a GOG customer is utterly miserable.

I have inquired about this internally and will come back to you once I have a more definitive answer.

We plan to support both GOG and Epic in the future but it's not a current priority.
