    You need to put <itemDB> </itemDB> around the contents of itemDB.xml, and <craftDB> and </craftDB> around the contents of craftDB.xml.

    The first line in itemDB.xml should be <itemDB>.
    The last line in itemDB.xml should be </itemDB>.

    The first line in craftDB.xml should be <craftDB>.
    The last line in craftDB.xml should be </craftDB>.

    Not in the code.txt file, they're not. But if they are in the proper files, then that should be okay. Where did you put the files themselves?

    Or rather, mrdawn2 needs to read the modding guide...

    Mrdawn2, go and read the modding guide. You can find informations on how to install a mod successfully in said guide. You install your own mods just like you would any other ones.
    If you don't have the required folder, then create it. That is always the case.

    As for the exact reason why it does not show, I am unsure. But it *Does* work if you simply extract it into the ..\mods\axes\.. subdirectory.

    Try for yourself. If it is in C:\pathhere\mods\axes.zip then you should extract it so the directories are inside the mods directory like this: C:\pathhere\mods\axes\items\.. and C:\pathhere\mods\axes\mod\..

    I will look at it further in a bit, but my Phenobarbital is kicking in and putting me to sleep. When I wake I will see if I can find exactly what you need to do. One thing that is immediately obvious is that tabs are negated in your text. What text editor are you using? And are you saving as ASCII or ANSI or some other format of text?

    Tabs are the big spaces that are actually a single character. They are a simple character that is represented by several spaces in most text editors. That is why most of the mods look like they do not use word wrap. (You can easily distinguish a tab from a series of spaces by trying to delete them. All the spaces in a given sequence disappear when you hit delete once, where it would take several strokes of delete to remove spaces making the clear spot in the text.

    There are actually several different types of tabs in files formats. Just like some plain text files look garbled in Windows Notepad while looking normal in Wordpad.

    I will elaborate more later. Sleep calls me now. :)

    Odd. I am puzzled. (That usually means it is something obvious.)

    But the skills show when unzipped. I will check the rest and see if I can find them. Is the image missing, or the recipe itself?

    Is it a standard recipe or a secret recipe? (Secret meaning you have to discover it from a bookshelf somewhere before it is unlocked for that character.)

    You may want to look at other mods that add items and recipes to see how they handle it. Clockwork Knights is a pristine example of how to do such things right.
