nice one! I think you are the first to add some custom UI too :smile:

Just a couple of comments. As mentioned here please don’t distribute the gdt-modAPI with your own mod. We really need to create a modding template so that ppl. don’t clone the gdt-modAPI to start their own mod…

And please fill out the package.json with your own values (url points to our mod).

and you should add a dependency to gdt-modAPI as shown here.

one last suggestion. I’m just working on some slight UI improvements for the Mods window and in the next version we will show the version number of mods and the url as well so it’s better if you don’t include the version number in the name.

Thx patrick! It was fun creating it!

I’ll take care of it first thing tomorrow!
Should I take the download down for now?

Kind regards

no, you can leave it up but thanks for applying the changes in the next update :slight_smile:

The mod is great, but one bug I found was that it always give 1M fans no matter what I click. I don’t know if it is just mine that acting funny, but I you can fix it that would be awesome.

Thank you for the mod.

Thank you!

I was so sleepy I made a little bug it’s fixed now :grin:

Here is the new version:

For those who already installed cheatmod, you’ll get an error when you replace it with the latest version. (because I changed the ID of the mod)
To Fix this just ignore the error and open the main menu and reactivate Cheatmod in the mods panel.
After that restart GDT and you’re set.

So Enjoy!

@PatrickKlug thanks for the feedback, I applied all the changes you asked :slight_smile:


Just included your mod into my index! Good job man!

Is the Mods menu from your mod or is it in the game now?

The Mods menu is in the actual beta version now. It got updated yesterday.

I have request to add on

Perfect reviews always get 10

What Romire says I want to be able to make AAA games.

There is a bug where your Character is the only one putting effort into the game and not your staff.

Thanks for the feedback!

@Romire could you elborate a bit? Would you like every game to be a 10?

Did you give your new staff the welcome training? this is mandatory
And can you elaborate a bit about the AAA games? you want a button that makes the AAA research available?


The mod is showing on the mod menu but it’s red and I can’t select it. Any ideas?

Do you have the official gdt-modAPI in the mods folder? Cheatmod(and all other mods) depend on it.
If you don’t have it you can download it at:

Thank you! It works perfectly.
