What Are Scripts
Link to what-are-scripts
A script is simply a file with a
.zs file extension, that is all that is needed to classify a file as a script file.
Link to note
Windows hides the file extensions of "known" file types, this means that
text.txt may show up as just
text on your machine.
This also means that
script.zs.txt will also show up as
script.zs on your machine.
If you are unsure if file extensions are shown or not, take a look in your game directory and find the file called
options.txt, if you see a file called
options and not
options.txt, that means that your file extensions are hidden and you may have trouble when making script files.
You can find out how to fix this here.
Where do scripts go
Link to where-do-scripts-go
Generally scripts go in the
scripts folder of the install, it is on the same level as
If you're having trouble finding it, you can run the
/ct scripts command in game, and it should open the scripts folder (This only works in single player, as you can't open a folder to the server scripts folder).
A tree view of how it should look is like so:
├── config ├── defaultconfigs ├── logs ├── mods ├── saves └── scripts
Link to sub-folders
Scripts inside the
scripts folder can be in any number of sub folders, an example of this is putting scripts into folders based on the mod, here is a tree view of that:
scripts/ └── mods ├── botania ├── recipes.zs ├── tags.zs └── thermal ├── recipes.zs └── tags.zs
That is perfectly valid and is a great way to manage script files in a large modpack!
