Who is KryoTronic and how was this mod even possible?

Posted by on

Howdy fellow survivors!

I am KryoTronic, an extremely fresh and new modder. I love videogames and have always longed to be able to mod a game in a meaningful way. Sadly most of my modding attempts resulted in nothing. However I did create a mod long ago for State of Decay which allowed you to swap skins. It was a simple text edit but that is nothing compared to what can be accomplished now in SOD2 with text editing. Some prominent folks in the SOD2 Modding Community created tools for new/veteran modders to make changes in SOD2 easily, as long as you put in the time. Luckily Undead Labs does not have any beef with mods so they are perfectly safe and easy to use. Especially now with the SOD2 Mod Manager that just released within the State of Decay 2 Modding Community.

First, thank you to all the dedicated Modders in the State of Decay 2 Modding Discord

Shout out to Brian Menard for introducing me to the community through his youtube videos.

Special Thanks to Heilos who created the Asset Editor with help from rubyruby. This mod would not be possible without this tool.


Hey KryoTronic I am one of the Head Moderators/Modders on the State of Decay 2 Modding Discord. I wanted to express how thankful I am that the tools and education we put out is making a difference and allowing people to either create their own experience's in the game or use some of our flavors to adjust pretty much anything.

Its been a long journey but we have grown from a dozen modders looking for a place to communicate and bounce ideas to become the largest Modding Community on Discord at 66k and growing everyday. People creating, posting, and using Mods the right way is what will bring Modding mainstream

Hey man! Thanks for commenting here, I didn't think anyone even checked ModDB anymore haha

I found your videos shortly after discovering Brian Menard. Thanks so much for all the work you put in to make this modding community so great!

I sort of fell off after I realized I needed to update every file again to make a proper 1.1 so that's why I haven't said anything in the discord or updated in ages. I have a few more ideas though and think I will create a better version of this for lethal soon.

Regardless, thanks for the support and all you do! Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays!
