About This File

If you think that the game needs some more weapons - this mod's good for you. It adds some more weapons and armor to the game, making fighting preparations more interesting.

Just remember - "Go for the eyes!"


Hound's Bite Mace

I was always annoyed that Tentacle Spikes braking quite fast, especially in caves. But above the spikes is only Dark Sword, that drives you insane really fast (that can be crucial in caves). So I tried to add something with middle damage, that lasted slightly longer than spike dealing nearly the same amount of damage and relatively easy to be crafted by player.

I drew it myself, so it may look somewhat differently than other weapons. (I don't think I can draw well enough)

Recipe for crafting:

Board x2

Ropes x2

Hound's Tooth x2

Requires Science Machine to craft.

Damage: 50

Durability: 150 uses

Golden Sword

Its main purpose to give some firepower to Wilson and all the characters excluding Wolfgang. I kinda liked his bonus to damage, but he is too much of a OP because of his raised stats and Wilson just too cool to swap him for bonus damage. And it'll be good way to spend some gold too.

Recipe for crafting:

Gold Nugget x5

Flint x2

Red Gem x1

Requires Alchemy Engine to craft.

Damage: 60

Durability: 100 uses

Marble Blade

Its powerful as hell (OP to be honest), but quite heavy, so each succesful hit will drain your hunger by 2 (as well as speeding up hunger consumption by x5 while you holding it) and slow you down 15% - so mind large groups of enemies and don't forget to bring some food if you plan to use it often. Using this with Wolfgang will be pretty much cheating, as it was intended to give a chance to Wilson-players to wield power to crush things with 100 or less hp in one swipe. (Wolfgang can do 102 damage with Dark Sword)

Recipe for crafting:

Marble x5

Gold Nugget x3

Purple Gem x2

Requires repaired Ancient PseudoScience Station to craft

Damage: 110

Uses: 200

Equipping it makes you consume hunger 5x faster and moving 15% slower. Hitting something with it drains 2 hunger from you.

Sword of Ice

Just 1 strike to completely freeze anything except for Treeguard and Deerclops. It seems to much of an OP item, but it is expensive to craft, rather brittle and you will have to be in a melee range to freeze monsters. And it drains sanity over time like Dark Sword does and -4 Sanity per Strike the way Ice Staff does (the staff drains 1 sanity per shot though). Later I plan to make it freeze player instantly regardless of used clothing if you equip it in winter.

Recipe for crafting:

1x Dark Sword

2x Blue Gem

5x Nightmare Fuel

Requires Shadow Manipulator to craft

Damage: 50

Durability: 40 uses

  • Freezes anything with 1 hit (excluding Deerclops and Treeguard)
  • Drains sanity 20min, drains -4 sanity every strike

Known bugs: From time to time it freezes Treeguards completely - forever, until someone trashes them. But i think Ice Staff does that too sometimes. [update: This was game's own bug, it should be fixed already]

Strong Sword by kiopho

Strong Sword created by kiopho is now included into Fighting Pack. Each strike drains 3 Sanity. Has 150% of Dark Sword's durability and damage. Does not lower Sanity over time.

Recipe ofr crafting:

Purple Gem x2

Nightmare Fuel x10

Dark Sword x1

Requires Shadow Manipulator to craft.

Damage: 72

Durability: 150 uses


Golden Armor

I honestly tried to draw an armor piece, but I am much more suited to write or fix codes than draw. Well, I can draw some decent weapons (decent from my point of view of course), but not armor. So I just did some repainting on Marble Suit. It was intended as craftable alternative to Snurtle Shell Armor, it has less durability and more absorbtion.

Recipe for crafting:

Gold Nugget x10

Ropes x4

Requires Alchemy Engine to craft.

Durability: 900

Absorbing rate: 90%

Golden Helmet

I finally managed to add Golden Helm. It would've taken me forever if it wasn't for

Heavenfall's helping hand with coding.

I still suck at drawing anything besides weapons, so it looks out of place. I will change its sprites once get my hands on appropriate ones. It was intended as craftable alternative to Shellmet, it has more durability and same absorbtion.

Recipe ofr crafting:

Gold Nugget x6

Ropes x2

Requires Alchemy Engine to craft.

Durability: 850

Absorbing rate: 90%


Some very nice and friendly people here really helped me with creating this mod and here I'am gonna say one hell of a loud thanks to all of them:

  • kiopho - Thank you very much! It all started with your wonderful "Strong Sword mod". My first coding experiments started with this mod. And kiopho kindly explained me how to rename .bin files without causing game to crash, so if it wasn't for him I would be breaking my ass over this problem and my mod would never be published.
  • Heavenfall - Thanks for showing how to add new hats to game files! Thanks to you I managed to add Golden Helm to my Fighting Pack.
  • A-bomb - his sprites for items is just awesome! He kindly offered to support mod's development by providing some nice pics.
  • Thanks to milson - I learned how to merge item mods from his mod's "Potions" code, which is also one of my favorite mods.

How to install:

1. Unpack mod's zip file into your "*:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\dont_starve\mods" directory

2. Start the game and go to mod's section of main menu

3. Find Madman's FP in the list and enable it.

4. Click OK and you're good to go smashin'.

What's next:

1. Rebalancing

2. Adding damned Chaos Sword
