How to modify a mod from Steam Workshop

If you want to find a subscribed mod to inspect or modify follow this steps:

Open the Mod page in Steam

If you are using the Steam application right click anywhere in the page an select ‘Copy Page URL’.
Paste it in any place (Notepad by example) and you get something like this:

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2344817441

If you are using the Web version you can see the URL right in the browser address space.

The last number 2344817441 it’s the Mod’s id.

Now you can go to your Steam installation and search for this path:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\667610\2344817441

The 667610 it’s the ‘Ancient Cities’ Steam id and inside the ‘2344817441’ folder you can find the Mod’s content.

If you want, you can make a copy to your C:\Users[Username]\Documents\Uncasual Games\Ancient Cities\Mod\ directory and enable it locally.

If you want to fork the content and upload a new Mod to steam you need to remove

String:
{
	Name:"GameVersion"
	Value:"21"
}

U32x2:
{
	Name:"SteamModId"
	Value:"2344817441,0"
}

from the Index.art file inside the root’s mod folder.

The upload process will update the file with proper values.
