StarOpenSource CORE (aka. SOSCORE aka. CORE)

SOSCORE/CORE is a framework that simplifies development for games and applications made in Godot 4.

Development status

CORE is under heavy development and can be very unstable. Please do not use CORE in conjunction with your game/application for now (except if you want to debug your game 24/7 and read a lot of gdscript files).

Roadmap to release :blobfoxbongo:

  • Mod loading system
  • Notification API
  • Basic debugging tool (CTRL+C to crash, F3 to toggle statistics)
  • Better documentation (docs4everything)
  • Everything commented and explained
  • Documentation page explaining what does what (for CORE noobies)
  • Autoload singleton check removal
  • More wmgr functions (the window manager got removed in the rewrite)
  • Website
  • Silencing startup messages (info -> diag)
  • Remove autoload component

Can I use CORE in an existing project?

Yes, in theory you can refactor your entire codebase and make a giant mess, but we don't recommend doing that.


  • Godot 4.1 (stable releases only)
  • Good experience with Godot 4 and GDScript


  • Use the Scene Manager instead of manually managing scenes or CORE will break apart. If you don't want headaches, use the Scene Manager.
  • Use the CORE's logger implementation instead of print(). It supports rich formatting (using tags, handled by our Preprocessorâ„¢) and is generally better than using print() for everything.

How to install

  • Download the CORE manager and open it
  • Enter the path to your Godot project
  • Click Install and wait 0-2 seconds for it to download
  • Reload your project (Project -> Reload current project) and start your game
  • If Godot complains that it could not load res://, then you successfully installed CORE. You can now follow the post install guide

How to update

Open the CORE manager, enter the path to your Godot project and click Update. Check this documentation page for important commits that can cause breakage.

Why is CORE not a addon?

CORE does not add one single functionality that can be easily removed, no, it is a whole framework providing many useful functions for your game and removing it would mean lots of refactoring and headaches for you. So no, no addon.
