    In this sub-forum you can release finished game modifications for the benefit of the whole of the F1 2013 The Game community.

    No other type of posting is allowed in this forum, this forum is for actual mod releases only, no questions, requests, or WIP (Work In Progress) threads.

    If you have modding questions, a request for a mod, or a work in progress, then you should post in the sticky threads provided for you at the top of the mod forum.
    What content can be modded and uploaded?
    Our view is that it is the responsibility of Codemasters and/or Steam to prevent the unauthorised use of Classic DLC content in the Standard game. We are sure that they will have the necessary protection in place to prevent it's misuse. Therefore with regards to the content of mods, there is no restriction here at RD over what content you can modify and upload to RD. The only restrictions are what Codemasters/Steam have put in place themselves.

    The uploading of cracks, or fixes for cracks etc. Is not allowed at all.

    If you are using someone else's mod as a base for your mod, then please get their permission first. At a minimum give them full credit for their base work in the thread you create when uploading.

    If content is used without the original modder's permission, then we will only accept complaints via the report system and by the original modder. He must only report it he wants to request that the content be removed.

    How to upload and share your mods?
    In the brand new F1 2013 Resource Manager you'll find ten different categories under which you can file your project(s):
    *Please Note*
    All projects must be uploaded via the Resource Manager. No projects will be accepted without you using the Resource Manager.

    Select a sub-category and click the "add resource"button in the F1 2013 Resource Manager and complete all the fields. Please include a version number (like 1.0 for example). If you ever need to update the mod, you upload a new file and change the version number (see Updating a Resource below). Once your mod has finished uploading an automatically created discussion thread with a prefix, and a download link will appear in this sub-forum where the community can give you feedback, leave a rating (important!), ask for support or just thank you for all the work you've done.


    Updating a resource

    If you need to update your mod, please update your original resource. Modify your file, and upload the whole mod to RD or to your external host ***. You must change the version number of the file, and add a short description of the changes made to the new version.

    *** New changes December 2013, no external hosts, but much larger upload available (300 MB)

    An update post will automatically be added to your original thread, and a forum notification or email will be sent to your thread or mod subscribers, informing them of your update.

    Don't forget to rate each resource you download, this helps the community see an overall rating for each file. If you are stuck or experience issues, please ask inside the thread of the file and one of our great community members will try to assist you.

    We try to get our Modding community to stick to a format, which gives you the viewer/user the best overview of the modders file.

    Looking at the overview page shows a description, a few pictures, sometimes a video and you can also see all the updates which have been made to the original upload.
