Mod to always drop 16 slot bags?
 
I recently got back into playing Din's Curse and I'm trying to make a mod where every monster I kill always drops a bag but I'm having trouble:

So I made modBags.gdb in /Database/Items

Code:

modBags overrides BaseBag
{
        Base                BaseItem

        ItemType        Bag

        BaseOnly        1

        ModifiersAllowed        0

        LevelRequirement        1

        ModelName        Models/Items/bag.mdl
        UseModelName        Models/Items/Items/bag.mdl
        DropSoundName        Sounds/Items/bag.wav
}

modBags overrides Bag7
{
        ItemLevel        1

        Size                16

        SpawnChance        100.0
}

Then I made modBags.gdb in /Database

Code:

modBags overrides SpawnSystem
{
       

ItemNormalChance 100
ItemCommonChance 15
ItemUncommonChance 100
ItemRareChance 100
ItemVeryRareChance 100
ItemSetChance 100
ItemUniqueChance 70
ItemArtifactChance 25
ItemLegendaryChance 25


}

I understand that for those particular bags to drop I'd have to mod the drop rate of normal items in general too but that's about it.

Not sure what I'm doing wrong? I would just like the monsters to drop bags without affecting the drop rates of anything else (I'm not looking for more Legendaries or for it to suddenly get in the way of Legendaries dropping for example).

I don't know if it is the only problem, but you can't make all 3 overrides use the name modBags, they each need to be unique names.

Ok I tried again:

modBags.zip/Directory/Items/modBags1.gdb

Code:

modBags1 overrides BaseBag
{
        Base                BaseItem

        ItemType        Bag

        BaseOnly        1

        ModifiersAllowed        0

        LevelRequirement        1

        ModelName        Models/Items/bag.mdl
        UseModelName        Models/Items/Items/bag.mdl
        DropSoundName        Sounds/Items/bag.wav
}

modBags.zip/Directory/Items/modBags2.gdb

Code:

modBags2 overrides Bag7
{
        ItemLevel        1

        Size                16

        SpawnChance        100.0
}

modBags.zip/Directory/modBags3.gdb

Code:

modBags3 overrides SpawnSystem
{
       

ItemNormalChance 100


}

But it still doesn't work :(

All files in your mod should be structured as follows:
Quote:

modBags.zip/Database/modBags1.gdb
Even if the file you're overriding is in "Database/Items", your override file should still be in the "Database" folder.

Sorry, this is a really late reply, but I'm still trying to finish this. I started a new job that prevented me from working on this.

Code:

modBags overrides SpawnSystem
{
        MonsterNormalItemChance        100

        ItemNormalChance 100
}

modBags overrides Bag7
{
        ItemLevel        1
       
        SpawnChance        100
}

I put it all in one file and it worked. It doesn't do exactly what I wanted to do, drop a bag with every enemy, but the drop rate has increased so much that it's basically the same thing.

At this point, I'm just trying to know more about what I did and learn from this. With SpawnChance, I think almost every bag that spawns is a 16 slot bag? (I still run across some Pouches and such.) MonsterNormalItemChance means that every item that drops is at least normal so that bags will always drop? I'm not sure what the difference between MonsterNormalItemChance and ItemNormalChance is.

You want each of those modBags parts to be unique.

ItemNormalChance is the chance when an item drops that it is at least a normal rarity.

MonsterNormalItemChance is the chance that a normal monster drops an item.

Ok, so following what you said (and I know you said it in your first post too), I think I ended up doing what I did before. Sorry, I don't understand what you said:

modBags.zip/database/modBags

Code:

modBags overrides Bag7
{
        ItemLevel        1
       
        SpawnChance        100
}

modBags.zip/database/modBags1

Code:

modBags1 overrides SpawnSystem
{

// ItemNormalChance is the chance when an item drops that it is at least a normal rarity.

        ItemNormalChance 100

// MonsterNormalItemChance is the chance that a normal monster drops an item.

        MonsterNormalItemChance        100

}

(I included your explanations as comments so that I would know what I was doing in the future.)

I'm not sure I know what I'm doing anymore though. After testing this version it seems to work the same as the other version. I've basically accomplished what I want to do, but it's not perfect? I guess one problem I have with it is that it seems to be affecting chest drops too. I'd like to solve that.

Well now everything looks correct from syntax level. You can't really affect what monsters drop without also affecting what chests drop though.

Anotheragain 08-16-2019 10:31 PM

Thanks! Can I ask why they need to be named differently and in 2 different files?

Shadow 08-17-2019 03:07 PM

They don't need to be in 2 different files. Usually database entries need to have unique names or only 1 of them will be used, although with overrides it is possible they would both be fine.
