Player content Edit
Creativerse features user content like player-made shareable Blueprints (for buildings) and Adventures that can include spawnable mobs, treasures, placeable checkpoints, disappearing/appearing walls, floor parts, stairs or platforms, timed devices like lights, doors to be locked with number puzzles, switch-puzzles, quest-like stories to be told and much more like that.
The game also offers several types of customization, from the look of player characters to key settings.
Actual Modding Edit
Making Creativerse actually "moddable" is being considered by Playful too - however at a future date.
This is what the official FAQs stated for years until the launch of the game (May 2017):And this is what members of Playful have stated about this topic on the forums:
Before Playful will be able to create modding APIs, there is still a lot to work out and consider. Like how to coordinate the official game development and game changes with player mods in the future, since Creativerse is updated ca. every month and sometimes with very large new features too. Or how to deal with copyright-issues or game-breaking bugs originating from player-mods (like when they aren't updated by their creators anymore while the main game continues to change), how to ensure that player-made content will not recreate, obviate or preempt purchasable content offered by Playful that is necessary to finance the game development, and so on...
If you play Creativerse, you have to abide by the EULA Edit
It is already possible to alter game data/files; but this is illegal and can get you sued Edit
Nowadays many people know how to extract graphic files or take a look into Unity files of a game program.
However you are not allowed to use this in any way to alter the game or make the data known on any public platform. If you want to do so, you have to ask Playful as the copyright-holders for their permission beforehand.
Please note that you have to accept the EULA at the time you install Creativerse - as is standard for nearly every multiplayer online game, before you will be able to play this game. If you are not willing to abide by the EULA (which includes the usual netiquette towards your fellow players) then you should not click on "I agree/accept", and in this case you are neither permitted to install nor to play the game.
If you have Creativerse installed, then you must have already accepted the EULA, which is a legally binding contract Edit
By clicking on the "I agree" (or "I accept") button you have promised to abide by the terms and conditions, even if you perhaps have not bothered actually reading them.
In regard of any modifications that you plan to make for/to the game or that other players have created unauthorized, you should call your attention to this part of the EULA for Creativerse:
