Authored the guide on steam, too lazy to breed it entirely here, so here are a few primers.
The entire guide:
Modding Alien: Isolation – The Fundamentals.
Backup XML + BML files within the game installation path:
They don’t occupy much space, so keeping a backup from the entire folders of alienconfigs, weapon_info, chr_info, difficultysettings, view_cone_sets, aim_ik_data, behavior, binary_behavior, material_data along with a couple of others, is only going to occupy an additional couple of megabytes, nothing to bother with hogging space.

Original Forum of BML tool.
The tool is easy to use. A precaution to consider before other things would be to perfect-click the executable file, select qualities, visit the compatibility tab, just safe click on the "change settings for those users" after which tick this area for "Run the program being an administrator" not to mention apply/suitable for it to create.
Whenever you have to convert b .BML file for an .XML file, or the other way round, simply drag the file under consideration on the top from the AlienBML.exe, after that it produces the converted version, and adds a "_noconflict"-suffix after every time it makes a brand new file, to prevent overwriting any existing files of the identical name. So you have to drag-and-drop say as an example the gbl_item.bml file to the AlienBML.exe, it makes personal files known as gbl_item_noconflict.xml, you are able to open it up in notepad and alter things, save, then pop the edited gbl_item_noconflict.xml around the AlienBML.exe to produce a bml file again of the edited xml file now known as gbl_item_noconflict_noconflict.bml, so next, be sure to relabel the brand new bml file to the initial by taking out the duplicated "_noconflict"-suffixes, and finally place the modded gbl_item.bml into the the information folder:
Overwriting the present file when motivated.
(Naturally for other files another folder compared to base DATA folder.)
Within the base DATA folder exists the GBL_ITEM.BML file which holds such fundamental things as the amount of each weapon ammunition/batteries/sources/products you are able to carry, the number of crafting sources adopts crafting any particular blueprint, the number of and just what products are produced through each crafted blueprint, you may also tweak the hacking game using the time period limit (the length of time on every difficulty, alarms, the number of symbols you have to match etc).
You are able to tweak the gamer, Alien, Android along with other NPC melee and health within the CHR_INFO/Attributes folder. You will find AI variables, hearing and viewconeset info. You will find settings scattered within the CHR_INFO/attributes, DIFFICULTYSETTINGS and examine_CONE_SETS folders tweaking vision and awareness settings.DIFFICULTYSETTINGS folder is another great place to consider.
Within the WEAPON_INFO/Ammunition folder files, you are able to set just how much, or no, damage ammunition gives the Alien, harm to other NPCs, flamethrower fuel consumption rates, the number of pellets a shotgun (or any other weapon) fires, what sort of damage weapons do, ranges, EMP, Stun, Blind durations etc.
A few of the XMLs do appear to carry information on graphics too, the best I notice is incorporated in the MATERIAL_DATA folder, the types of materials.xml, which appears to carry some physics engine variables for objects, and decals, debris, some effects.
Anyway, that´s a begin XML & BML editing. See more in the Steam guide or dive into modding!
