    Hi,
    I've created video how to setup free version of Visual Studio and create simple mod.
    With Visual Studio, you have full auto-complete support. It also checks for most errors.

    Post any questions regarding visual studio and how to set up it here, I'll be monitoring this thread for some time.



    Visual Studio 2012 Express can be downloaded here for free:

    Link to created mod (enhanced already):

    Thank you, that is most helpful. Do you have a wikipedia or any docs created for the API yet?

    I have VS 2010; And it's not like you don't use torrents for getting your music as it is....

    There is always Open Office Draw.

    Visual Studio 2013 Community Edition
    FREE!!!
    "This edition of Visual Studio is available at no cost for non-enterprise application development."
    You will have to register it within 30 days to continue to use it otherwise it will show a trial licence.

    It also has Git and TFS integration built in.


    Web Installer:
    http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/news/vs2013-community-vs.aspx

    Or the Full ISO can be downloaded here at 6.9Gb (under the "Visual Studio Community & Express", "Community 2013 with Update 4" headings).
    https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/downloads/download-visual-studio-vs.aspx

    When you install, you won't need Azure or Blend for Space Engineers modding.
    Save yourself the hard drive space and added overhead and don't install those optional components.

    Fixed EvilSensor code from the video's:

    Workshop link: EvilSensor2016

    Save yourself the frustration of trying to figure out what is wrong with the old code (though: You might consider that part of the learning process...)

    Blowing the space dust off of my modding, and so trying to follow the video. I got past the whole Community version thing without issue. But when going to add References, there were a few issues:

    • There was no "Bin" dir in my SpaceEngineers directory, just the Bin64. I chose that one.
    • There is no VRage.Common.dll. Dunno if that's a problem or not. Is there an updated list of DLLs to reference?
    • Sandbox.Common.dll gave an error when I tried to add it as a reference, something about .NET Core. I had to go back and start the project again and this time choose "Visual C# .NET Standard" instead of the default "Windows Universal".
    Just some FYI's so far from trying to get modding going in the current age.

    @beelzerob Yeah as you can see, this tutorial is very old... at the time of writing there wasn't even such a thing as "Windows Universal" or ".NET Standard".

    Mr. Petrzilka doesn't even work for Keen any longer...

    I highly recommend getting on Keen's discord for modding help, including setups. There's separate channels for this.
