About This File

Chester the Enlightened is now your night time companion!

v1.1 should have the fire and combat (traps) issues fixed (let me know...)

-- Description:

-- Chester never sleeps, for that night time exploring!

-- Chester lights the way at night with a spooky, flickering...ness.

-- Chester takes no damage (though he may burn up, hehe).

Since this is the virgin release, please let me know if you find any bugs or issues.

To install this mod:

Download this .zip file.

Double-click to open. DRAG the enclosed mod directory into your dontstarve/mods directory.

You'll now have a "mods" folder called "ChestertheEnlightened",

then run the game and 'enable' the mod on the mod loading screen.

-- enjoy!

Alas, this mod no longer works. The latest revision or two broke Chester, because of code changes related to controller support.

Updated, hopefully fixed version of the mod:



http://rghost.net/52229635 (link is valid 'til ~March 4, 2014)

http://dfiles.eu/files/jrcd1hfka (hopefully, will survive longer)



(I couldn't figure out how to attach files to this thread, so, if you know how to do it, please do so!)


If you don't want/cannot download changed files, try to do this:

  • open ChestertheEnlightened\scripts\prefabs\chester.lua
  • find this line:

    inst.components.container.widgetpos = Vector3(0,-180,0)
  • add/insert these 2 lines right under it:

        inst.components.container.widgetpos_controller = Vector3(0,200,0)    inst.components.container.side_align_tip = 160
