Creations published as open-source templates can be found in the Community Content window. These templates can be small models, packages of props, scripts, or fully scripted objects.
Community content creates a wider variety of assets to choose from while building a project, and sharing templates with Community Content allows Core Creators to collaborate on models and tools and share their innovations within Core.
Importing Community Content¶
Any template in community content has to be imported into the project before it can be used.
Open the Community Content Window¶
In the default project view, the Community Content window is open in the bottom panel, along with Core Content and Project Content.
If the window is closed, open it by clicking View in the top menu bar and selecting Community Content.
Find and Import New Content¶
By default, community content displays the most recently published templates first. The left and right arrows below the displayed content can be used to get more results.

The search bar at the top of the Community Content window can be used to find specific templates.
Click on any template to see more details about it, including a description and screenshots.

Community Shared Games¶

To start a game from a community framework, open the Create menu of the Core Launcher. Select Create New and choose the Community Shared Games option to see what games other users have published as open source.
