You could always listen for the "moisturedelta" event on the player's moisture component, and make it call a custom function in your script. which updates the runspeed and walkspeed variables of the player's locomotor component, depending on the "new" variable. Something like this:

local function myMoisureDeltaFunction(inst, data)
	-- data.new holds the new value, and data.old holds the old value. Check out the PushEvent call in the moisture component code.
	-- Do some nice calculation for figuring out how much to lower the movement speed depending on how wet he is.
	-- The following is PSEUDO CODE. I can't remember the possible moisture values, but if the maximum moisture is 100,
	-- then the following will lower his movement speed to 0 when moisture is 100, which is probably not what you want,
	-- but it's an example.
	var speedRatio = (100 - data.new) / 100
	-- normalWalkSpeed and normalRunSpeed should be saved somewhere at the start of your script, so you always know which
	-- value to return to when the player is no longer wet.
	inst.components.locomotor.walkspeed = normalWalkSpeed * speedRatio
	inst.components.locomotor.runspeed = normalRunSpeed * speedRatio
end

-- At the bottom of your player initialization function, add this.
inst:ListenForEvent("moisturedelta", myMoistureDeltaFunction)

u-uh........ i don't really know how to do it... but i get how it works now, I'll try my best, thank you!

Read some of the tutorials pinned in this forum ([Don't Starve Together] Mods and Tools). If you don't know LUA scripting, there's a crash course here, and that site has a bunch more advanced tutorials. You kind of need to learn scripting in order to make mods. There's no easy mode. The code I presented is almost complete for your purposes.

alright, thanks so much for your help! I'll just try to poke around with wx78's lua

edit:(quick question where exactly is the player initialization function? is it the "local common_postinit = function(inst)" at -- This initializes for both the server and client. Tags can be added here."

Download a popular character mod, which has seen an update within the last 2 months, and look at the code. That's really the best way to figure out how to do things. I can't remember all this stuff, and I don't have time ATM to look. Sorry.
