SteelMod The RPG Overhaul Mod

Updated For Alpha 15!

Whats New


Class Questing

We have added a questing system to the classes now. What this means is when you spawn into your world, you will start with a main class book. From there, you will craft it into one of the ten classes, then read the class quest sheet to begin your journey to mastery.

the block of text from Noah upon first spawn has been altered to guide you on your first steps through SteelMod, so please read it as to not miss out on what to do.


The custom items have been added to the economy with the new addition of vending machines and traders. Now, any player without a certain class can buy class specific items at the seller's discretion. Build, or break, your server economy!

Mod Merger

With the release of SteelMod v6, we no longer have to rely on the "Single Player" and "Co/op Server" versions. Questing for your jobs makes it single player and co/op friendly! Host it on a server, or play it with your best bud, it will run just as it should.

SteelMod v6: Class Overhaul Update


*The economy for custom items is an early implementation, and we are already working on 6.1 to make any necessary adjustments to prices. Please feel free to leave any odd pricing finds on our forums in the Bug Section.

- The merchants will be able to sell the custom items in v6.1, as we work on adjustments to economy and add to the trader.xml.

- Please report any issues or bugs on here, or message redwolf directly.

- It is known that you receive a "NullRefException" error upon exiting servers. everyone must have the XUI folder and xui.xml, along with the localization.txt and localization-quests.txt installed on their end, otherwise the mod won't work the way you want it. Unfortunately at this time, there is no fix for this, it is just how the game is.
