  2. KTEX+XML Decompiler

    Simple Java application that allows its user to split the contents of Klei's TEX files using their respective XML atlases. In other words...
    Using it is simple:
    - The first text field is for the XML file. It usually has the same name as the TEX file and is found in the same folder.
    - The second text field is for the PNG file. The tool will accept TEX files if it is put in the same folder as simplex's ktools.
    - The third field is for the output folder. All images contained in the PNG/TEX will be put there when they're extracted.
     
    As I've previously mentioned, this tool does NOT convert TEX files to PNG. It will make ktech from ktools do so if they are in the same folder. The second field's label will change from  to  if ktech.exe is detected.

  4. Save game of base demonstrating a few advanced concepts.

    This is an example I was asked to provide for a reader on the subreddit. It is a bit starved for power approaching the late game but otherwise demonstrates some management and automation concepts, as well as a solid format for a modular base. Download, critique, whatever.

  5. Critcode

    This code is designed for Don't Starve Together to allow for critical hits and items with critical hit properties.
    By design this allows all mobs the potential to be able to crit if they have crit chance greater than 0
    Using inst.components.combat:SetCrit(critchance, critdmg, critfn) we can define a basic crit settings for a mob.
    Currently equipment have crit variables as inst.variables rather than component ones.
    Some fun examples if you have a hat that has crit chance, we can give it to a pigman and he'll be able to crit.
    Currently tested on a caves enabled server and works as advertised.
     
    Suggestions and bugs found for improvements welcome.

  6. Custom Tile Adder

    This mod can be used as a template for custom ground tiles for Don't Starve Together. I use it in the Green World. The main logic implemented in two files:
    tileadder.lua — provides two functions: AddTiles() and AddMinimap(); tiledescription.lua — contains parameteres for new tiles. Function AddTiles() should be called from the modworldgen.lua, function AddMinimap() should be called from the the modmain.lua. Ground ID is not required, the tile adder calculates it automatically; this provides high compability with any other custom tile mods. Turf prefab is also generated by the tile adder, but you need to set build/icon/anim/any other prefab data with AddPrefabPostInit() function in the modmain file.
    Five steps to add new tile:
    Pick the name for you tile; Place ground texture (resolution 512x512, name «noise_yourtilename») and minimap texture (resolution 256x256, name «mini_noise_yourtilename») in the «images/textures» folder; Add string «yourtilename = { }» to the tiledescription.lua file; Add AddPrefabPostInit() function to set inventory images for your tile; Test it! More information you can find in the tiledescription.lua file. As an example, two custom ground tiles (Jungle and Tech) are added.

  8. Character custom voice tutorial and custom item sounds

    Note: this file will not run as a independent mod, its more of a toolbox if anything. Also its recommended to have some modding experience as the tutorial isn't beginner friendly.
    This file is a tool box and template for making custom character voices and other item sounds as well. It contains a few common armor, structure, and weapon sounds that the base game uses, along with notes about them that may prove useful. The code is preset to follow the lua files stored inside so its less of a hassle trying to start from scratch. Last this file is subject to updates to keep up with don't starve together adding more types of voices like emotes, pose, and ghost voice.

  15. TEXTools: Mac Port

    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!

  18. Backup your saves game

    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!

  22. Working Body Heat

    "Work keeps you warm, but makes you peckish."
    This mod considers strong physical activity such as mining or chopping trees and increases your body temperature when doing so. However, this comes at an increased calories burn rate.
    You can tune the exact values in-game.
    As suggested by _Sips[1] (warning: swear words)

  23. Speech Template

    This is a speech template compatible with DS (with or without RoG) and DST.
    Remember to rename the file!
    You can set the speech file using: STRINGS.CHARACTERS.CHARNAME = require "speech_charname"
    Pro Tip: You can "comment" specific lines "out" by putting -- before them. You can also comment several lines out by putting --[[ before and ]] after them.
    I assembled this in less that 15 minutes, so it's likely there's some redundant strings left (as in, the same key being set twice). Don't blame me, should that be the case, I just copied Wilson's file from Together and ran a simple script over it to empty the quotations.

  25. Texture and Atlas Packer

    This program can be used to create a single texture and atlas file from multiple images.
    VirusTotal: Here
    Unpack Function:
    The unpack function allows the end user to break down Texture (.tex) files into their base image into a Portable Network Graphics (.png) file.
    HOW TO USE EXPORT FUNCTION:
    When adding files instead of adding Image Files, select 'Texture Files' from the drop down. Add the Texture (.tex) files you wish to unpack and click the Unpack button. If you press the Unpack button and no Texture (.tex) files are in the list, it will skip operations. If a Texture (.tex) file is in the list and you press the Pack button, the pack function will skip the Texture (.tex) file.
    NOTE 1:
    This required .NET Frameworks 4.6 in order to run it correctly. Please download it from the Microsoft Website if you're not running Windows 10.
    Regards,
    Kzisor/Ysovuka
