  1. Looking to assist/contribute to a mod author! Senior Software Engineer here. Long time full stack web developer, variety of languages and technologies. 6 years development experience at a fortune 500 company. Just looking to contribute to some mods for this game I love. Not sure if this is an appropriate format to offer mod authors some help, but... here I am! Happy to respond to PM's with contact information. Have ~10 hours a week to commit to DST modding.
  2. Hello all! First of all, a big thank you and shoutout to all the fantastic resources on these forums. Long time DS player here, and I am a developer by day job. I have always wanted to get into some game modding - and this community couldn't have made it easier. Great stickies and tools on these forums. And the best docuentation of all: the game's lua code itself I have just finished development for a structure item: the Grinding Wheel. I have the details working. It has a ui-slot widget interface, much like a crockpot (which much of the code is based off of), that you place the item in, as well as some crafting materials. The part I am playing with right now is "how much" durability is restored. Is it percentage based? Restore a static amount of uses based on the quality of raw material? For example, one possible user journey could go as such: Place a Spear in the item slot of the Grinding Wheel. In the materials slots (which there are 3 of), you place a single "rocks" prefab. Rocks restore a flat 15 uses to an item. Press the [Sharpen] button on the ui-slot widget. Wait for the item to get sharpened, much like a crockpot. When complete, harvest the item. I am looking for feedback in general! Coding the mod has been a great learning experience, and my first time using lua, but the syntax is very straight-forward. Let me know what you guy think. I am looking forward to finishing this mod and sharing it, once I get around to doing the art and audio assets. (Or paying someone to help me out ).
