Adding new items

We've already seen that all things in Stonehearth are made of entities and components. Here we'll cover how to create new items.

As we've said before, most of the usual modding is done by copy-pasting files from the Stonehearth mod into your own mod, and modifying them.

In order to make a placeable item, we need to be aware of the entity forms component.
You can create items either manually or with SHED.
The scale of an item can be changed in its JSON file.

Final notes

After creating our new item we can create a recipe so that it can be crafted, or use it as a monster drop, or make it only available in shops, etc. Of course, we can also add more components to it if we want to.

Other most commonly used components will be covered in later sections of the basic / intermediate guides.
