  1. It's a very simple mod revealing the entire map in the game, regardless of the level at which we find ourselves. Despite the simplicity makes it easy modding or just makes the game lot easier.
    Have a nice use.

  2. This is a music mod guide for Don't Starve Together that can also be used for Don't Starve. It is created by me, and contains links to other files needed. This is a current guide and should help more than the extremely outdated one from 2011.

  4. IMPORTANT: Starting with version 4.3.0, the Windows binary release requires Microsoft's Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package (previously, the 2010 one was required). See the bottom of this description for more information.
     
    ktools is a set of cross-platform (Linux, Mac and Windows) modding tools for Don't Starve. It consists of the following command-line tools:
    ktech: a bidirectional converter between TEX texture and PNG; krane: a anim.bin/build.bin decompiler, whose output is a Spriter project. More detailed information about these tools may be found in the README, in the project's GitHub repository.
    ktools primary release format is as source code, compilable under every platform using CMake, as per the instructions in the README. A Windows binary release is also included (the ZIP ending with "-win32").
    When compiling from source, if libzip is found then the ktools are compiled with zip support, so that zip archives may be given as input in the same way directories may. The binary Windows release does not have zip support.
    If you have issues running the Windows binary release, make sure you have Microsoft's Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package (the 32 bit version, that is, download the file called vcredist_x86.exe). It's very likely already installed, but in case of any errors first make sure that is in fact the case.

  8. These are some super simple tools I made for Don't Starve years ago, recently updated and re-uploaded myself seeing how popular they were. I still believe you should use the official tools for texture creation, but for simply viewing and exploring assets this tool should work great for you.
    Source code and latest releases are always available on GitHub.

  9. Back by my insistence, the Speech Modification Template!
    This file contains all you need to easily make speech file modifications on existing characters, or to make ones completely out of nothing for a custom character. Or even add or change quotes for Lucy or Pigmen!
    And now, it is fully updated both for the latest version of All's Well That's Maxwell, and the Reign of Giants "Feet of Strength" updates!
    I am merely continuing the work WrathOf started, but couldn't keep up with as he passed into inactivity. If he comes back one day and asks me to take this down, I will have to, i'm afraid. But until then, here you go. A nice little modder's tool.
    How to use:
    Download the proper file. If you're using the DLC, then you want version 1.6. Otherwise, stick with 1.5.
    Extract the zip file, then open the ExtraEnglish.lua file. Everything you need is there, all the generic describe quotes are alphabetized.
    Let me know if I missed anything important, or if there are some items missing from the template.

  11. This is a character I made to be used as a template. It uses a spriter file that I rebuilt to be more extended.
    There are multiple versions.
    V1.0.4 - Don't Starve and Don't Starve Reign of Giants
    V1.2.3 - Don't Starve Together
    V1.3.1 - Don't Starve Shipwrecked
    The tutorial for this is here.
    Features:
    - Basic coding for a character mod
    - All animatable parts of a character
    - Larger drawing areas
    - RoG lightning sprite
    - DST emotes
    - A basic DST ghost
    This requires Don't Starve Mod Tools to autocompile .png files that are modified. Use Spriter to preview the changes you make. Parts can be removed from your character by clearing out the .png files of that part.
    If you're modding for Don't Starve Together, and the mod doesn't compile, you may need to temporarily move your mod to your single player mods folder, and move it back once the mod tools compile it.

  12. These are official sample mods developed by Klei. They are very small and barebones, in order to get you started with modding. These are meant to serve as a starting point only and are not complete mods on their own!
    Sample Prefab
    This mod demonstrates adding a new object to the world which can also be put in the player's inventory. For testing purposes, one is added to the player's pockets every time the game starts.
    Sample Character
    Use this as a starting place for your own characters! Contains template artwork for character animations, saveslot portraits, and more! Note: This will require TEX tools in order to create .tex files from the provided .png images.
    Also note that the template for the bigportrait is in it's own zip file for download size reasons, but both samplecharacter.zip and samplecharacter_bigportrait.zip together make the Sample Character mod and templates.
    Sample Mod
    A demonstration of very basic mod setup, including attaching a custom components and setting tuning variables.

  14. This mod adds a Development Tool - It have been crated by Klei, to help with testing Don't Starve and RoG DLC. File "devtool.lua" can be found in vanilla game, in prefabs folder. This mod adds a remade version of it, that makes it possible to use in-game, along with couple of features.
    Devtool:
    - can be used as weapon (range: 20, about half of a screen; damage: 10000)
    - can be used as axe, pick, shovel, hammer and net; every action is instant
    - creates large light spot around a holder, or around lying spot
    - provides health, hunger and sanity insta-regeneration
    - provides heat in Winter and (if RoG is enabled) act as cooler in Summer
    - act as Walking Cane, adding speed multiplier (about 2 times faster than normal)
    - has built-in prototyper, so you can prototype stuff anywhere and anytime
    - if you want to build anything, provides necessary resources
    - act as blinkstaff (you can teleport to a chosen spot)
    - almost every feature is configurable in mod configuration screen
    I'm uploading it here as a mod, because it really helps testing mods. It doesn't have a crafting recipe (obviously), so, Here as a console command that you have to type in console to get it:


    c_give("devtool")



    This mod is meant to be OP, because I made it to help testing mods...



    Consider that before posting a comment...
    Have fun with testing mods

  19. These are Mac versions of Handsome Matt's mod tools, TEXCreator and TEXTool. All I have done to them is wrap them in Wine and added icons. They work on my machine, and hopefully they will work on yours.
    The wrapping process unfortunately makes the files very large (~400mb unzipped), so I have compressed and split the files to be able to make them available here. If you would rather make wrappers yourself instead of download them, the process is very easy.
    1. Download and open Wineskin Winery as well as Matt's tools (above).
    2. Create a new blank wrapper using the latest engine (I used WS9Wine1.9.21). For simplicity's sake, you can only run one file per wrapper, so name it TEXCreator or TEXTool depending on what you're after.
    3. When prompted, say YES to installing Mono (which emulates the Microsoft.NET framework necessary to run the programs, and is why the files are so large) and NO to installing Gecko.
    4. When done, open the resulting wrapper. You should get a dialogue that has an "Install Software" button on it. (If you don't, option-click on the wrapper, select "Show Package Contents," and click on Wineskin.app.
    5. In the next dialogue, click "Move a Folder Inside," browse to the folder containing Matt's tools, and select it.
    6. When prompted, pick the appropriate EXE for the wrapper you are creating.
    7. Close all Wine dialogue buttons, and try opening your app. If all is well, the programs should run and behave the same way they do on Windows. I know very little about Wine and if you have problems, I cannot help you resolve them.
    I hope you find these programs useful!

  20. This mod shows how to add a custom tile (ground) type to the game, to the map and minimap.
    The actual work is encapsulated in the file tile_adder.lua, which may just be plopped into your mod and modimport'ed. It exports the function AddTile(), whose usage is exemplified in modworldgenmain.lua (note, however, that the tile texture assets must be declared in modmain.lua).
    As an example, a new tile type GROUND.MODTEST is added. The mod will also spawn in the player's inventory an infinite turf item which places the new tile type (to make testing easier, it does not require digging up the original turf with a pitchfork).
    WARNING!
    The numerical id passed as the second argument to AddTile (which becomes the value of GROUND.YOURNEWTILETYPE) must be unique, not conflicting with with game's own values (specified in vanilla's constants.lua) as well as with other mods. It must also be less than 128 (the value of GROUND.UNDERGROUND), otherwise the game assumes the new tile represents a wall type. The AddTile function checks the given numerical id for validity, raising an error if the check fails. With regard to intercompatibility between mods adding tiles, it is important to choose numerical ids not conflicting with the choice of other mods. Ideally the ids would be generated automatically and stored/restored as map savedata, but since mods run before any savedata is loaded this would add a number of pitfalls for the modder to be aware of, and generally increase the complexity of the code required for adding a new tile, so I kept the manual specification. The sample tile is added with an id of 80, while Up and Away uses consecutive ids starting from 64.

  24. You must be familiar with the MOD 
    That's right. This is the ROG version of the mini furniture you want. 

    In this version of the MOD what is the use? 
    1: you can take your furniture around the map 
    2: when the four seasons BOSS comes, do not have to worry about the destruction of the house 
    3: of course, you can do whatever you want.

  25. In Don't Starve Shipwrecked, to backup your save game, you must copy all files from two locations:
    -  C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents\Klei\DoNotStarve\save
    - ...\Dont Starve Shipwrecked\bin\3DMGAME\Mr DJ\storage
    Every time backup or restore, you must do the 1st and 2nd steps. For convenience, I create an application run in Windows that you can backup/recover easily with a by only one click.
    Name player: input name of player properties.
    Date Game: input date in game.
     
    (Only Compatible With Windows due to How Finding File Works and I have no idea if Visual Basic programs work on Linux or Mac.)
    Some when I will be adding new features based on suggestions and feedback, so if you have any then I want it!
