Alpha 10.8.3 fixes further issues with mod loading.
Alpha 10.8.2 fixes some issues with mod loading.

You can now upload and download code mods in the Steam Workshop!

First off: Do not download code mods if you don't want to ruin your PC, but also don't want to verify the safety of the mod.

Here are some quick Q&As to explain what this change means:

What is a data mod?
As you most likely haven't noticed, because I literally just changed it, mods in the workshop are no longer called "Mods" but "Data mods". Everyone who has a "Mod" on the workshop should re-upload it to gain access to this new exclusive title.
A data mod is basically a mod that doesn't change how the game works, but gives the game more content to work with, which is what mods on the workshop have done so far.

What's the difference between code mods and data mods?
Code mods are written using a programming language and actively change how the game works, add new mechanics on top of it or they pretend to be mods while they quietly mine bitcoin in the background.

Aren't there already code mods on the workshop?
The way code mods work in Software Inc. can pose a serious threat to your computer, since they have the same access to your files and internet that the game has, but have the advantage of not being developed by me.
Because of this, I had decided not to allow code mods on the workshop. Clever modders got around it by uploading their programs as text files, which is obviously not an ideal situation.

If code mods are so insecure, why are you allowing them now?
This latest update includes a way to load mods that are still in text format and actively tries to shut off parts of the mod that would access your internet or files.
Please note that the mods can still be very dangerous. I will try my best to moderate code mods on the workshop, but feel free to study the files, find and flag any malicious code yourself. The game will prompt you to read the code directly in the game before it loads any new or updated code mod.

I want to make my own trainer. Where do I start?
