===Making mods for Eternity=== The editors [[Doom Wiki:Doom Builder X|Doom Builder X]], [[Doom Wiki:GZDoom Builder|GZDoom Builder]], [[Doom Wiki:Eureka|Eureka]] and [[Doom Wiki:SLADE|SLADE]] have Eternity level editing support of varying degrees. For [[UDMF]] (modern advanced format) you can use Doom Builder X, GZDoom Builder or SLADE. However, if you lack access to a UDMF-capable editor or don't want the complexity it brings, you can also use the classic DOOM format, combined with [[ExtraData]] For general modding, Eternity relies on [[EDF]], its own content definition language. For level definitions in particular it uses [[EMAPINFO]]. Eternity also has growing support for some lumps from [[Doom Wiki:GZDoom|GZDoom]] and [[Doom Wiki:Hexen|Hexen]] such as [[ANIMDEFS]], thus increasing the support for cross-port mods. Eternity can load [[PKE]] archives, not just [[Doom Wiki:WAD|WADs]]. It can also load unarchived folders structured the same as PKE archives (you can use the -file command-line parameter on folders), facilitating project work. You can use powerful editors such as [[Wikipedia:Visual Studio Code|Visual Studio Code]] on such folders to edit your EDF modifications. See [[Editing reference|all editing reference]] to get started on modding.
