Heroes of Newerth allows users to create modifications.

Types[edit]

There are two main types of mods that you can add to Heroes of Newerth. .honmod and .s2z. .honmod was created by Notausgang and .s2z was created by S2 Games.

.honmod[edit]

.honmod is a file extention created by Notausgang. Notausgang created a program to go with this called The HoN Mod Manager. It is a program designed to remove mod incompatibilities and the need to update mods every new patch. It is also capable of maintaining a list of installed mods which can be enabled/disabled individually. An auto-update feature for mods is planned for some point in the future.
