New Campaign Trail[edit | edit source]
New Campaign Trail was created by DecstarG on April 16th, 2021, and released to the public the following day. The site was created to ease the modding process, and preserve mods. As a result, much of the mods released for The Campaign Trail are hosted there, along with the original mods by Dan Bryan and some achievements.
Campaign Trail Showcase[edit | edit source]
Campaign Trail Showcase was created by Jet and Obummer in August 2023, starting development on July 19th 2023. The site was created due to a desire to have an alternative to New Campaign Trail with new features that the New Campaign Trail team disagreed with. Many of these features have since been added to New Campaign Trail since Campaign Trail Showcase's release. The site has its own achievements, distinct from New Campaign Trail. Notably, it hosted Tex's Mod Library since the Tex-Decstar Dispute of 2023. Though Tex's mods have since been readded to New Campaign Trail. It is notable for letting modders add their own achievements and custom images, descriptions, and theming to their mod boxes. It also features an advanced cheat console and autoplay modes that developers use for testing.
