UE Refusing to create Pak files

Hi all,

I’m looking to be building a few mods for Satisfactory, but I’m having the strangest problem.

I’ve downloaded the ‘starter project’ that the modding community have created which includes an example mod (which is confirmed to be working etc).

The problem is, when I come to create the Pak file (either using the AlpaKit plugin, or ‘manually’ cooking from the engine) the pak file doesn’t get created (no ‘cooked’ folder etc. present either). Logs shed no light as they’re empty.

Would anyone have any ideas as to why this doesn’t work as I am at a complete loss.
