I am following https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Mod_Hooks
and suddenly I am hit with the concept of Mod.Settings, which I understood what it is by looking at other mods. But where do I declare them?

You set it in Client_SaveConfigureUI . See https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Mod_Game_Data_Storage

OK so to get those values from the UI:

in Client_PresentConfigureUI.lua we set them
UI.CreateLabel(horz).SetText('Attacks per Multiattack(0=Infinit) ');
InputMaxAttacks = UI.CreateNumberInputField(horz).SetSliderMinValue(0).SetSliderMaxValue(100).SetValue(initialValue);


in Client_SaveConfigureUI we retrieve them

Mod.Settings.MaxAttacks = InputMaxAttacks.GetValue();


This kind of stuff is needed in a tutorial. I'll create a tutorial on the wiki.

^That and knowing/assuming all the things you want to get from the game can be reached is really all you need too get a mod going. Then just go to the API Ref. site (found at the bottom of that page), and look up the call you need to make.

Not saying a tutorial is not helpful, but at least for me Mod_Dev. guide answered all my questions.

Maybe I'm just hardheaded and I need step by step tutorials. I was doing good progress by following the Mod Developers Guide page, but then I lost a good half an hour trying to find how Mod.Settings works.

Then I understood what it is by looking at an example mod from dabo1.

Then Fizzer said that it was initialized in Client_SaveConfigureUI. That helped, but then, I didn't know how the variables get passed from the UI. There's nothing in the wiki that says that. You have to look at how other mods do it.

I understand that https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Mod_API_Reference suddenly just stops at the letter t and so the hole UI tutorial is missing now and has to be accessed over https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Mod_API_Reference:UI

That at https://www.warzone.com/wiki/Mod_API_Reference the last entry is territorystanding. Maybe it is just a bug cause I got a mobile optimised page but the entry UI which is at the end of the page is missing for me.

EDIT: Maybe I was just wrong and it wasn't there(also not on PC version), I added it on the page now

^Huh, you are right. It's only missing when checking on mobile.
