What is a Token?

For a modding tutorial, perhaps someone could explain what a 'Token' is and how to use it? Pweeeeze? My five-point rating system: Yay, Kay, Meh, Erm, Gleh 03:20, 9 March 2010 unsigned comment by AngleWyrm

A token is anything in one of the RAW files with brackets around it, like [MEGABEAST] or [AQUIFER], for example. Different objects have different tokens (only creatures use [SIZE:x] tokens, for example) and changing tokens allows you to change behaviour, appearance, location and a lot more of various objects.unsigned comment by Ungulateman
It's a "tag" that the game reads to determine how a thing acts or reacts. They differ quite a bit depending what "thing" you're modding, whether a creature or a plant or a workshop reaction or a stone or a biome, etc. There is an entire sub-forum dedicated to modding" - that's where you should go for a full, personal discussion. Alternately, you could start on the actual token article rather than the page that lists all the pages in that category. --Albedo 11:11, 9 March 2010 (UTC)
