Currently, Core is only on PC, but we may consider expanding to other devices in the future.

The file download size for the Core Launcher is ~2.5GB. Once installed, the Launcher requires ~5GB of disk space.


What kind of content is allowed on Core?

Please check out the Code of Conduct for content guidelines on what is and isn't generally allowed.

 

Can I set a minimum age requirement to access my games and content?

All users of Core must be a minimum of 13 years-old. Games and content are accessible to all users regardless of age. However, if your game or content contains elements of a "mature" nature, we encourage you to include that in the game's or content's description.

 

Are gambling or casino-style games allowed?

Gambling and casino-style games are permitted in games and content. However, they may not use any type of currency or reward any type of currency that can be converted into real currency or any type of currency with real monetary value. Please see our Terms of Service for additional information.

 

Can multiple creators work on the same game or content simultaneously while in Core?

Though Core does not have simultaneous creation and development functionality, collaboration with other creators is HIGHLY encouraged. There are two ways currently in which creators can collaborate on projects:

  1. Privately publish to Community Content and share the link with your collaborators or team, or
  2. Connect to a source control system such as GitHub or GitLab

 

Can I import my own models, meshes, or assets?

All modeling and object creation for Core is done within the Core Editor by "kitbashing" pre-made objects and assets provided by Core's development team. The combinations of these objects, textures, meshes, materials and the settings within make the possibilities endless. And once you have created your model or object, you can share it with the masses via Community Content!

As an example, the spaceship below was made with kitbashing of objects by creator Chipnertjk

Can I import my own audio?

Just as with modeling, all audio in Core is created within the Core Editor itself. And, just like with models and objects, Core provides creators with all sorts of sound effects, instruments, and dynamic background music tracks to kitbash together to make all new and unique audio.

You can check out our Audio in Core tutorial for more information on all things audio!

 

What is Lua?

Lua is a lightweight and flexible programming language used to accomplish scripting in Core. You do not need to know Lua (or any programming language) to create or play in Core. However, many creators enjoy using Lua as an additional customization tool in their projects and creations!

For an intro to Lua, please check out our Basics of Scripting in Core and Lua Primer.

If you are already familiar with Lua, you may want to jump right into our Advanced Scripting in Core tutorial.

For additional help and support with Lua from other creators and the community, you can join our Discord.

 

Can I export my games to Steam?

Currently, all Core games and content must be played on the Core platform.
