Is there a way of adding new buildable structures to the game?
I have idea for mod but it requires some additional structures to make it work

There is one however if you want custom structures you have to make your own models with Blender.

There are many 3D model programs you can use as long as they export in object format you can convert them to pie

Models are not the case, I just cant get my model to be available in construction tab
I've tried to modify Structure.json, rules.js and nothing works, is there another file that I have to modify to make it work?
Note: I want this tructure to be available from start without researching it, also my mod appears in top left corner of game window but structure is not appearing

You can also try berg's pie conversion tool.

A good way to find out is maybe look at other folks mods the ultimate scav mod has many new structures try looking at that.

You need "enable" your structure to build, like it does in rules.js
enableStructure("A0LightFactory", playnum);
also, you need set all spec to structure, cost, hp, armor, etc..

I have already add them to rules.js and to Struct.json file
and ultimate scavenger mod is not much of a help due to its old format

Attach your mod here and tell us what structure you are trying to make available.

A0TestTower I presume. You need to fix the spelling of the skirmish folder (your mod has "skrimish"). Doing that I was able to build a purple and grey prototype of this tower you are making. There were some other warnings/errors but you could probably fix those.
