Core mod and extensions for the Oxide mod framework.

Oxide Mod License Build Status

A complete rewrite of the popular, original Oxide API and Lua plugin framework. Previously only available for the legacy Rust game, Oxide now supports numerous games. Oxide’s focus is on modularity and extensibility. The core is highly abstracted and loosely coupled, and could be used to mod any game that uses the .NET Framework.

Support for each game and plugin language is added via extensions. When loading, Oxide scans the binary folder for DLL extensions. Core extension filenames are formatted as Oxide.Core.Name.dll or Oxide.Game.Name.dll, with community extensions formatted as Oxide.Ext.Name.dll.

Open Source

Oxide is free, open source software distributed under the MIT License. We accept and encourage contributions from our community, and sometimes give cookies in return.

Compiling Source

While we recommend using one of the official release builds, you can compile your own builds if you’d like. Keep in mind that only official builds are supported by the Oxide team and community. Good luck!

  1. Download a Git client such as GitHub Desktop or SourceTree.

  2. Clone the repo https://github.com/OxideMod/Oxide.git (recommended) or download and extract the latest zip archive.

  3. Download and install Visual Studio 2015 or 2017 (community is free, but any edition will work) if you do not have it installed already.

  4. Open the Oxide.sln solution file in Visual Studio 2015 or 2017.

  5. Build the solution. If you get errors, you’re likely not using the latest Visual Studio 2015 or 2017; which is required as Oxide uses some C# 6.0 features.

  6. Copy the files from the Bundles directory for your game of choice to your server installation, then just start the server!
