We recommend using the Thunderstore Mod Manager or an alternative for installing mods

This is the pack of all the things you need to both start using mods, and start making mods using the BepInEx framework.
To install, just extract the .zip so that the
winhttp.dll file is sitting next to your
Risk of Rain 2.exe file. That's the only installation step.
I'm aware of some issues related to logging, so I'll release a second version sometime later (and maybe with more included plugins).
BepInEx/plugins - This is where normal mods/plugins are placed to be loaded.
For developers: There's no set format for what you need to name your plugins to load; if they're a valid plugin .dll file, they'll be loaded.
However please be considerate and isolate your files in their own folders, to prevent clutter, confusion, and in general, dependency hell. For example:
BepInEx/patchers - These are more advanced types of plugins that need to access Mono.Cecil to edit .dll files during runtime. Only copy paste your plugins here if the author tells you to.
For developers: More info here: https://github.com/BepInEx/BepInEx/wiki/Writing-preloader-patchers
BepInEx/monomod - MonoMod patches get placed in here. Only copy paste your plugins here if the author tells you to.
BepInEx/config - If your plugin has support for configuration, you can find the config file here to edit it.
BepInEx/core - Core BepInEx .dll files, you'll usually never want to touch these files (unless you're updating)
BepInEx - https://github.com/BepInEx/BepInEx (commit ed47b29) This is what loads all of your plugins/mods. Read here for more information if you are a mod maker: https://github.com/BepInEx/BepInEx/wiki The version included is a beta build of 5.0, which isn't stable yet, so expect some (hopefully backwards-compatible) changes
BepInEx.MonoMod.Loader - https://github.com/BepInEx/BepInEx.MonoMod.Loader (commit 238ba23)
Loads MonoMod patchers from
BepInEx/monomod, read the monomod documentation for more info
MonoMod.RuntimeDetour - https://github.com/0x0ade/MonoMod (commit 418ad0e) This is the library used to hook into and patch existing methods at runtime, greatly increasing what can be done within a mod. For more info: https://github.com/0x0ade/MonoMod/blob/master/README-RuntimeDetour.md The appropriate MMHOOK_Assembly-CSharp.dll is included in this pack too, so you don't need to make your own (until the game updates, at least)
R2API - https://github.com/risk-of-thunder/R2API (commit e070d9c) This is the general use modding API for Risk of Rain 2. Right now it is barren and only handles adding, removing and manipulating the survivor list (I needed a last minute replacement for SeikoML) but do expect frequent updates that should be backwards compatible.
