Add-on content

Add-on content (AoC), also known as downloadable content (DLC), is additional game content that can be acquired by purchasing the Expansion Pass.

The AoC file hierarchy and packing is exactly the same as the one for regular content. Note that unlike game updates, add-on content is not transparent to the game at all; DLC requires special handling by the resource system and aocManager, which means that adding files to the DLC root will in most cases not work as intended.

It should also be noted that because only a single copy of ActorInfo is present, DLC actors are necessarily listed in the ActorInfo of the base title. Their actor files are stored in Actor/Pack, except for dungeon-specific actors which are bundled with dungeon packs (just like non-DLC dungeons).
