# Creating the Discord Bot

In order for this mod to work, you need to create a "Discord Bot" application. Without it, the mod will not work.

 

# Part 1 - Creating the Custom App

 
To get started, head over to https://discord.com/developers/ and sign in using your discord account. After signing in, you will be taken to the Discord Developer Dashboard. Press the "New Application" button located at the top right of the screen

You will get a popup prompting you for a name. Enter the name you'd like your bot to have and click "Create"

Once you created your app, you will be taken to a General Information Page. Here you can give your app a description, change the icon of the app and create a bot. You can skip this page and click on Bot on the left-hand menu

# Part 2 - Creating the Bot

 
We are now ready to create the "Bot" and get the "token" needed by the mod.

To get started, click Add Bot and you will be prompted if you are sure you want to "Add a bot to this app". Click "Yes, Do it!" to create the bot.

Once you have created the bot, you can change the name if you want to and also upload a Profile Picture for the bot. Also click "Copy" underneath "Token" to copy your bot token to the clipboard, and I suggest pasting this in notepad or somewhere you can find it again later. You will need this later for the app.

  Due to a recent change in the discord API for bots, you also need to enable the GUILD_MEMBERS and MESSAGE_CONTENT intents as well. Without this, the bot will not start

The final step now is to invite the bot to your server. To do this, head over to the "OAuth2" tab on the left-hand menu. This will allow you to generate an invite link to invite the bot to your server.

Under the "Scope" section, click "bot" and scroll down to "BOT PERMISSIONS". Under that, choose the following permissions.

After completing this step, scroll back up to the "SCOPES" section and click "Copy" next to the URL/Link shown in the text box. Now visit this link to invite the bot to your server
