How to create a module

Before start we suggest you to read Documentation about modular structure to understand the way AzerothCore works.

Resources

The Basis

  1. Create a folder inside modules/ directory

  2. Now you can develop add anything to the main project, such as some scripts or even an entire library

Note: we suggest to use the directory structure standards of AzerothCore to better organize your modules and be familiar with main project.

Add the first script

  1. Before continue, we suggest you to follow our guide on how to create a script for AzerothCore

  2. After you’ve created your script you’ve to create a .cpp file to handle the script loading.

For example ( Assuming you’ve created an src folder ):

my_custom_loader.cpp

// From SC
void AddMyCustomScripts();

// Add all
// cf. the naming convention https://github.com/azerothcore/azerothcore-wotlk/blob/master/doc/changelog/master.md#how-to-upgrade-4
// additionally replace all '-' in the module folder name with '_' here
void Addmod_my_customScripts()
{
   AddMyCustomScripts();
}

NOTE: AddMyCustomScripts is composed by:

Add (Prefix)

MyCustom (An unique name identifier for your script to avoid function collisions)

Scripts ( Suffix )

Create a custom configuration file

if you need to add a custom configuration file to your module that will be installed with server, the steps are very simple.

  1. Add a file with the extension .conf.dist in folder ./conf
  2. Done. Yes, really, that's all there is to it.

Add your db files to db_assembler

you are able to create base, updates and custom sql that will be automatically loaded in our db_assembler
