This is just a quick set of instructions on a way to get a mods items, into RAT so you can view them in the RAT Item Spawner. As with anything, make backups before doing anything!

  1. Shut down your server
  2. Copy your original items.xml to another file.
  3. Copy your mods items.xml into the original items.xml location
  4. Copy your <RatInstallfolder>\support_files\items.json to another file
  5. In RAT, click Tools -> Export Items
  6. Locate the new items.json in \support_files\items.json.
  7. Merge the two items.json files into a single items.json file
  8. In RAT, click Tools -> Import Items
  9. Copy back your original items.xml back into its original location so the game has access to all of its items.

Probably, if not, it could be made much easier. However since very few people seem to do this, the amount of time it would take might not be worth the effort.
