I'm trying to figure out how, because the test mod doesn't work. Always comes up with an error from the TEST.xml stating that "Asked for non-existent XML tag Category"......
It also doesn't show up in the mods tab when I try to make a new save.

Ah, yeah, as of alpha 9, all software requires a Category tag in each feature. Simply hasn't been updated yet.

Alright, and in the Company.xml what do I use instead of CompanyTypes and Types. Couldn't parse /Types and doesn't recognize /CompanyTypes

What is this for? Is this for furniture modding or the company.xml?

I don't know what that is.
Anyways, for the Company.xml file, here's the code so you can help me troubleshoot:

<CompanyType>
   <Specialization>Test</Specialization>
   <PerYear>0.2</PerYear>
   <Min>2</Min>
   <Max>3</Max>
   <Types>
      <Type Software="Software Name">1</Type>
      <!-- you can have more "<Type Software="Software Name">1</Type>" but different software -->
   </Types>
</CompanyType>

for some reason it also says that /Types is on line 13, which this doesn't even go that far. Same for /CompanyType, it says it's on line 14 for some reason

Hmm... There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with this... Could you post some pictures of the software inc error message or maybe a GitHub with the whole mod folder?

Sorry I'm not sure what you mean.
I'm just using the test mod from the pinned post about how to mod.

That is not updated to the latest version. I recommend using the files from http://softwareinc.coredumping.com/wiki/Resources.zip to learn. You will need to add <Category> to each feature in the softwaretypes though. If it still doesn't work, feel free to reply again, or message me on the forum.  :)

Quick question. Do all the alpha 9 mods have to already have all those XML files for the types that already exist in the game? Or is it just for example??

Oh and after fixing personality.xml by replacing more tags, I got it to finally work. We should maybe make a post with an updated version so anybody new can use it?

No, they do not have to be included. Yeah, that's a good idea, as the developer has his hands full with the updates and all :D
