Stormworks Build and Rescue: How to Edit the Vehicles in Workshop Missions

There is a way to edit the vehicles in the workshop missions. This step-by-step guide will help you achieve this. If you are going to re-upload someone else’s vehicle, please give them credit, where credit is due.


How to Edit the Vehicles in Workshop Missions

Step 1 – Modded Workbench

Disclaimer – This method only works on Windows Computers. I have tried on Mac, but it won’t work.

Most likely, if you are editing a mission vehicle, you will need a larger workspace. Here’s how:
Step 1: Go to your library, where there is a settings icon. Click it, and go to Properties, Browse Local Files.
Step 2: Once you are in the files, go to rom> data> tiles. Scroll down to Island_15, the XML Document.
Step 3: Right click, and select edit.
Step 4: Scroll down to almost halfway, where it says <edit_area>
Step 5: Set the grid size to “0” and change the size to whatever you like. For example:
<size x=”130″ y=”100″ z=”130″/>
Step 6: Select file>save.

Now you have your modded workbench.

Step 2 – Adding the Vehicles

Step 1: Go to your “Browse Local Files” and go to the “steamapps” folder, which is back a folder.
Step 2: Click on workshop>content.
Step 3: There is a six digit number folder that is different for everyone. Click on it.
Step 4: Go through the strange labeled folders that are ridiculous 10 digit numbers until you find the
one you want.
Step 5: Click on “playlist”
Step 6: Copy every file in that folder.
Step 7: Go to the steam folder
Step 8: Go to steamapps>common>Stormworks
Step 9: Go to rom>data>preset_vehicles_advanced
Step 10: paste all the files into that folder and relaunch the game.

Now, you should have the vehicle you want to edit.

    Step 7: Go back to the file manager, paste in the file search bar the numbers you copied and click the folder of the thing that shows up. This is the addon you’re looking for.
    Extra Help: It might be hard to find the numbers mentioned at step 3. It’s similar to what you did before, just go to the storm works store page, copy the numbers in the left corner and paste it in the search bar that you should be at when you reach at step 3. That should be storm works addon list.
