This is a mod that i really want to try...

problem is i have no idea how to install it.

i tried to use the cross character one from rage but i a) am scared of making changes like adding files to my game and b) have no idea where i'm supposed to put the files

it took an immense amount of hand holding for me to download the lua.jit for dont starve together.

if you know how to help, I, and a lot of other computer illiterate people, would thank you.

I know that installing mods without the Steam workshop is a pain. Fortunately, you don't need to change the game data. Any mods are basically additions and you can remove them without issues.

Installation:

1. Go to ":\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Klei\Griftlands\"

When you get there it will look like this:TheWay.thumb.PNG.29fa9fe36a37fbd9922c67570d01360c.PNG

2. Open the folder consisting of alphanumeric characters (in my case it is the 79789ee2dd464d819a1b0e7a6e35c0ed)

3. Create a folder called "mods"

4. And into it you unzip the folder you downloaded from github called "GriftlandsExpanded-master"

5. When you start the game Epic may ask you which game data you want to use. Pick Upload to Cloud.

Question.thumb.jpg.b693fcfdd407de5a966743e9812ab2de.jpg

6. Now you can open the game and check compendium for the new cards to confirm that mod is working

   If it doesn't work, put the "mods" folder directly into "[user]/AppData/Roaming/Klei/Griftlands/"

 

That should be everything, let me know if you get lost along the way.

Maybe I should make a video tutorial to make it a bit clearer. If I find some time for it.

For me, the save folder is in the folder with weird alphanumeric characters. Not sure why that's the case. If the mod doesn't work in the griftlands folder, try that folder.

A quick update for the mod makes it compatible again with the current version. To make sure it runs properly delete all the old mod files and replace them with new ones.

Okay so after doing god know's what including me trying to uninstall and reinstall griftlands alpha just trying to see if i somehow screwed up how the files are supposed to look like during that one time i tried to learn how to rollback saves and most certainly screwed around with something.

i think what i need is to figure out how to reach the damn file/folder, namely whatever the hell roaming app data is.

i understand what i'm asking is absolutely dumb and once i get handheld through the process it'll seem so simple in retrospect, but i honestly still don't know how to take screenshots in epic game's games so i have no idea how to find the location in file explorer..

You need to enable showing hidden folders & files. Alternatively, you can just type the address in the file explorer's address bar.

Here's how you would enable showing hidden folders.

OKAY OKAY I FINALLY...jesus christ why does klei forums not let me say the f word that would make this amount of pent up stupidity and anger so much more expressive...

i must thank you both junior elder and rageleague, as i had been so unbelievably stupid that i finally fixed it after bashing my face into a wall repeatedly.

i had realized i actually needed to enable debug and eventually found the roaming data thingy.

Update: New day 1 boss for Rook and unlike all the other scrubs this one came prepared.

This took me more than a week to finish since I had to rework most things I wanted to do. I feel that I’m losing momentum and motivation, so updates will be even less frequent from now on.

On another note, I thought about making some cards that wouldn't reinforce only one archetype, because the rigidity of deck types is stopping me from enjoying the game. So if you have ideas you’d like to see feel free to post them here and I’ll see what I can do.

Hmm, this sounds like a fun challenge. Some ideas for Sal:

Quote

 

Mindfulness

Maneuver, 1 Action

Whenever you heal, draw a card, then discard a card. Expend

3-5 damage. Spend 3 combo. If you did, improvise a card from your deck, and play it for free with a random target.

 

Quote

 

Tumble

2-4 damage. Discard a random card from your hand. If it was an Attack card, gain 5 combo.

 

Quote

Quote

 

I can do this all day

Maneuver, 1 Action

Gain 1 combo for every two cards in your discard, then shuffle your discard into your deck

 

 

 

 

I've aimed at a pre-upgrade powerlevel, but some of these are odd enough, they could be very off.

Thanks for the ideas, they're great. I tried to go through them and do some tweaking.

Those are my changes and thoughts:

I like this one, I don't think it needs any changes.

Quote

Close up

Maneuver, 0 Action

Spend up to 3 combo, gain 2 defense and one Protect per combo spent.

Shoulder Roll would make this weak by comparison so I went with 0 cost.

Quote

Balanced Stance

Maneuver, 1 Action

If you have counter your attacks deal 2 more damage

There are ways to get a lot of counter in a single turn and if combined with 3 or more attacks it would be really strong.

Quote

Mindfulness

Maneuver, 1 Action

Whenever you heal, draw a card, then discard a card. Expend

I am a bit worried about consistency but still a nice adition

Quote

Dancing blade

Attack, 1 Action

3-5 damage. Spend 3 combo. If you did, improvise an attack card from your deck, and play it for free with a random target.

UPGRADE_1: Improvise from discard pile.

Quote

Tumble

Attack, 1 Action

2-4 damage. Discard a random card from your hand. If it was an Attack card, gain 5 combo.

I won't use this one, it is too random for me and I think there is enough randomness in the game already.

Quote

Eye for an eye

Attack, 1 Action

3-6 damage. Add an Injury to your discard pile. Apply bleed per Status card in your discard pile.

Nice design, may unnerf later if it turns out too weak

UPGRADE1: 4-8, add 2 injuries

UPGRADE2: 2-4, 3 bleed per Status card

Quote

Resourceful

Maneuver, 1 Action

Until the end of the turn, whenever you gain or spend combo, improvise a card from your deck.

Love the card. It may be really hard to code.

Quote

I can do this all day

Maneuver, 1 Action

Gain 1 combo for every two cards in your discard, then shuffle your discard into your deck

I do not like current version of this but I don't know why. I will have to think about this one a bit more.

 

I've been making cards interacting with hand cost, deck size and generally with draw heavy decks.

Those are the ones I am testing right now:

Spoiler
Quote

Pounce

Attack, 0 Action

4-8 damage, At the end of your turn increase cost by 1.

Quote

Scheme

Maneuver, 0 Action

Gain defense equal to the cost of the most expensive card in hand

Quote

Trickery

Maneuver, 1 Action

Improvise a random common, uncommon and rare card.

Quote

Hidden Reserves

Maneuver, 1 Action

Gain 2 Defense and 1 Counter for every 3 cards in your discard.

Finall numbers on this will probably be different

 

Sorry for the late response I needed some time off.

I will try to release new cards in a week or so along with small changes to older ones.

The idea behind Tumble was that you would play it last during your turn, to guarantee you will discard an attack. Playing all maneuver cards (or discarding them, if playing a discard deck!) beforehand means you’re doing a weak-ish attack and getting a whopping 5 combo for 1 action, which is very good value. I think it would be more reliable than you give it credit for. But at the end of the day, you’re the one coding the cards :)

Trickery sounds really powerful, although likely hard to truly take advantage of.

I get the idea behind Tumble, it just felt wrong to make a random discard when every discard is targeted.

Now I realize that I could just change the wording to: "If you only have attacks in your hand gain 5 combo"

Unless I'm missing something this wouldn't change most of the interactions and the synergy would still be there

I have alternative version for trickery prepared as a potential nerf. It would improvise 3 common cards. One upgrade would give uncommon cards instead and other would have improvise+

I wanted it to be a card for adding more cards into hand/deck to boost cards that depend on it

Thanks for the feedback, it truly is helpful :)

Since you said you appreciated the feedback, I will give some more:

Unless I'm missing something this wouldn't change most of the interactions and the synergy would still be there

The main differences in your version are:

  • You don't have the option to try playing it for the combo even if you still have maneuver cards in hand;
  • You don't trigger on-discard effects (e.g., into the Shadows);
  • You are more likely to play your version earlier in the turn, since you don't risk discarding a card you wanted to play.

And well, I like the theme: either Sal tumbles gracefully, or she stumbles face-first on the ground :p It's a fine card either way. Cinotrainer used to be a random discard, and I think one of the parasite cards still has a random discard effect, so it's not a completely new effect on a player card.

For other cards you mentioned, I will say that Balanced Stance probably wants to be the scaling version I put forward. A counter deck doesn't want to invest in attacks, and a multi-attack deck doesn't want to invest in counter. They're fundamentally opposite deck archetypes. To make you want to invest equally into both, the bonus should be sizeable. I am not sure 2 extra power is enough. I can see your concern about stacking huge amounts of counter, though. Maybe something in between would be best.

 

Trickery is good mainly because of the Rare part, I think. Improvising 3 (common) cards is not that good when you are already paying 1 action to get them, and you likely already had 4 other cards in your hand to begin with; you just don't have the actions to exploit so many cards in one turn. But you do get a whole lot of choice on what you play. It's definitely an interesting concept. I would say it wants to expend, though.

On "hand-cost" effects, I don't have much to say. Sal doesn't have many cards that synergize with the concept (footwork is fine, freighter is ok, neither are worth building a deck around), so any new card you want to make that helps should really make you want to invest in the idea. I like Pounce as a card that is decent-ish by itself, but supports the archetype, it's clever. Scheme is weak, unless the upgrades are amazing, needs a boost. But you want one or two flagship cards for the archetype, on top of these.

Ok I'm back. This time it only took me 2 days, I am getting better at this.

Playing Tumble without a 100% chance of hitting an attack is the reason I didn't like the card. I personally prefer it this way because the difference between getting 5 combo and not is quite substantial

Not discarding cards makes it slightly weaker but presumably, you would still play it along with other discards so it would only be marginally weaker

Playing it earlier in your turn will allow activation of combo cards but it shouldn't be OP, at least I hope so

The theme was really nice and it always bothers me when I have to change something that fits so well. But I would say that gameplay has priority over the flavor. If you don't mind I will end the discussion about this card here. I will test my version and if it doesn't feel good I am going to try yours.

When it comes to the Balanced Stance the only truly problematic card would be Reversal. It is simple to pull off and it could give you 5-10 temporary power and if played as the first card it would allow you to pull off 50+ damage combos with minimal setup.

With only +2 damage it would be less useful for decks going full counter and better for decks with cards that along with their main effect apply counter as well. After all, it is 1 cost +2 (+3 upgraded) power under certain conditions. And it can stack.

Trickery has expend, I forgot to add it to the description.

I have tried a hand-cost deck and it worked quite decently. I went with a lot of cost reduction, draw and discard support. The biggest problem for me was lack of defensive options since I didn't get battle scars, boulder stance, or any stuns. And with the freighter, I couldn' consistently hit more than for 20 damage. But I am fine with it being tier 2 deck as long as it is fun to play, and I felt like it was quite interesting even without the new cards.

I think I will change Scheme to: 0 cost, Discard a card and gain defense equal to twice its cost. One upgrade will no longer discard the card and the second one will discard two cards and give defense equal to their combined costs.

If you use it on a card with a discard effect it will give 2 defense and activate the discard effect and if you use it on a high-cost card it will give 4-8 defense.

Can you set the minimum capacity of the deck to limit unlimited flow routines?

I am not exactly sure what you mean by unlimited flow routines but that would be very difficult and certainly beyond my technical skills. I couldn't find any value that determines the minimum deck size, so you would probably need a completely original code. You can try asking other modders or devs, my understanding of Lua is quite limited so I can't give you a definite answer. Sorry
