First Character Mod - Walter The Monk! Looking For Contributions


Recommended Posts

Hello! Today I made my first mod for Don't Starve and I want to make it even better with the help from everyone on here! My mod is a character named Walter who is a monk.

 

post-393097-0-64610900-1401769446_thumb.

 

Here is what is up with Walter:

-Not that great at fighting (Doesn’t hit hard and can’t take too many hits)

-Very sane (300 sanity!) due to his faith

 

I want to add a lot more including:

-Custom voice

-Custom speech

-Custom Artwork and Map icons and all that

-Custom Items (Sanity stuff, faith based fighting, etc.)

-As well as any other suggestions people have!

 

So really I want to make Walter an absolute beast of a mod so you all can enjoy it!

Thank you for checking out my post and if you have any suggestions/want to help/ or have anything at all you think I should know THEN LET ME KNOW :grin: I want to make this mod one that people will love.

 

Here is the download from the Steam Workshop: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=266715437

 

I'm not sure what the preferred way of downloading mods for the standalone version is so for now I will just share it via Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2B_0kKaVuwqMmlFcXFYcVQyRkk/edit?usp=sharing  (Just go to File and then Download)

Custom speech is easy, download the samplecharacter mod if you don't have it already, or look at other (for this purpose preferably simple) character mods.

Custom items, artwork and map icons are pretty easy to make too, so take a look at the guides in the modding forum or at other mods with similiar items.

About custom sounds, I am not sure, although it's probably do-able.

You can upload files to the forums here, just .zip (or .rar) it up and attach the file. I'm sure there are guides for this too, if you need help.

 

Also, this is a pretty awesome first mod! I'm downloading it right now. :joyous:

Regarding your mods code:

update api version and forum link at some point

add a gender to your character and all that stuff to make him more compatible (as seen in samplechar)

replace the placeholder artwork with proper stuff (oh rly? duh...)

maybe remove the unnessesary samplechar fragments (the ones with "--")

Thank you so much! I will get on dialogue and all that fun stuff today. But as far as the artwork goes that might not be so easy since I'm not much of an artist :p

But thank you for the support and help!

Also I don't know how to edit my posts to update the download... so here is another for now until I figure it out. Oh wait, apparently I am not allowed to upload it with the built-in uploader, so I guess it doesnt matter for now.

Glad I contributed something that's any good :wilson_laugh:

Editing should unlock after a certain amount of posts. In fact, I think five is enough. There are two uploaders by the way, try switching to the old one, it works for me.

And yes, few can draw amazingly well, but you seem to be doing well, looking at your character sprite.

I could help with anything non-code related. I've started my own mod and have found and know how to do Don't Starve style stuff. I could even try to create a custom voice, but- no promises, never done it before.

 

Thanks man, I will keep that in mind! Anything is appreciated :happypigs:
