Vintagetext Markup Language (VTML), is a (obviously) completely novel and highly advanced markup language designed to display richly formatted text inside Vintage Story. Definitely has nothing in common with the old and outdated HTML standard ;-)


  • <br>
    Causes a line break
  • <i>text</i>
    Causes the text to be in italic font
  • <strong>text</strong>
    Causes the text to be in bold font
  • <a href="url">text</a>
    Turns text into a clickable link. You can link to websites (http://), handbook pages (handbook://pagecode) or trigger hotkeys (hotkey://code)
  • <font size="num" color="hexcolor" weight="bold" lineheight="1.2" align="right" opacity="0.5">text</font>
    Formats the text by given properties, all properties are optional


<icon name="[icon name]"></icon>
Draws a symbol, selected from a list of predefined, hardcoded symbols, which can be used when modifying the Handbook or any other rich text in the game. These icons can be scaled and coloured by adding the appropriate commands.
