I am very enthusiastic about stonehearth and i watched the live streams (offline cause i didnt know of stonehearth yet when they were streamed xD). In one of the live streams they went in on modding and said that they would want the downloading of mods as easy as possible.
So my idea is this. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could download and search for mods within the game (not wile playing but in the main menu). I will explain the practical issues at the end but first the layout.

I made it with paint but it gives a good impression of how i have it in mind. I think if it looks somewhat like this it is easy to use and friendly for everyone.
When someone would select a mod on the left side it would look somewhat like this:
I noticed i forgot a download button xD.
Some things i didn’t put in but would be nice to have there 2 are:
- search function
- and i had a other thing but i forgot. Will add it when i get it back xD
There are a few things that must be done to get this working and the most important is that there must be a database for alls the mods. Knowing that most mods dont exceed 100 Kb max and most are about 20 kb would mean that the database is fairly hostable cause of the small files. I am not experienced on this subject so please correct me if i’m wrong.
A other thing is that its a thing that need to be programmed. Al tho i don’t think that would be the problem.
I hope you guys like the idea and i dont know who i sould tag to get this to the attention of the developers :3.
I would also like to hear your guys feedback :D.
