Mod adding a couple item

I made a mod adding a couple of items to the game, as I understand it the only way to ‘add’ them into my mod is to supply my own PrimalGameData. Is this correct?

Say I have my mod at v203 with all the latest items, devs update the game to v204 but the dev kit does not update for lets say a week, and 204 added new items. My server running my mod will not have the new additions until I update the mod is this correct?

Hey, Demon
Yes I believe so, updating the mod is the way to get the new items in.

It’s disappointing that you would have to wait until the dev kit updates to add the new items in. Does anyone know of a way around this?
