Update 16.1 - backward compatibility breaking changes Edit

  • In Config.txt, all the awareness section has changed altogether.
  • All awareness modifying effects now use absolute values instead of percent-based values. If you have any of those in your mod, you should adjust the numbers. The value determines the increase per day, so an effect of -2 will decrease the daily awareness growth rate by 2. See "meditation" research and "stealth" skill in the original configs as examples.
  • Awareness should no longer be used in formulas for determining base defense difficulties, since attacks only happen when awareness is at 100% now.

Full Release - backward compatibility breaking changes Edit

  • Amount of experience per enemy is now defined per tier in Enemies.txt. If you add enemies that don't inherit any tier, you need to add these per enemy. If you add new tiers, you need to give them exp values.
  • Profession preferred tasks are now defined in the Professions.txt file instead of in Config.txt.
  • Removed difficulty milestone "difftier3extra" and added milestones for tiers 4 and 5.
  • Changed skill ID for scout (now spotter) and artisan (now tinkerer). Any links to those skills should be modified. Scout and Artisan are now professions.

Update 15.1 - backward compatibility breaking changes Edit

  • Level up skills defined in Professions.txt now have a new mechanic. Instead of defining a few skills per level, you define which categories are available per prfoession, and then define the skills per rank of each category in SkillLists.txt.

Update 15 - backward compatibility breaking changes Edit

  • Enemies.txt: Removed survivor4/5 base classes (they weren't supposed to be there in the first place)
  • Enemies.txt: Instead of defining min/max difficulty, enemies now have a "level" property that determines when they appear.
  • Enemies.txt: Instead of defining "difficultyval" property, enemies now have "amount" property that determines their value relative to their tier. Lower value means more of them will spawn.
  • Items.txt: Items have "level" property instead of min/max difficulty to determine when they spawn as loot and in traders.
  • Items.txt: Items now have new properties that affect when and how they appear in traders.
  • Research.txt: Research subjects now have a level property. This affects how we calculate the player's "current tier", which is currently used only to determine what items traders offer, but may be used for additional purposes in the future.
  • Config.txt / Texts.txt: Preset survivors' names are now localized. The previous syntax still works but we recommend moving their names to Texts.txt.
  • Config.txt: A lot of the difficulty settings have moved to a new file - Difficulty.txt. Much of the settings that determine how enemies are generated have changed in Syntax as well.
  • Config.txt: Definitions of difficulty levels per terrain now use a "formula format", so the previous ranges of "400-500" would evaluate to -100 instead of "random number between 400 and 500". Use "400 : 500" for ranges instead. We also support variables defined in Difficulty.txt now.

Update 14 - backward compatibility breaking changes Edit

  • Balancing changes to enemies, weapons and armor may make some mods unbalanced.
  • Healing abilities are now percent based instead of absolute numbers.
  • Ability "maxuses" property is now defined where the ability is gained (equipment, skill, etc)
  • Changed format for defining combat professions in config.txt
  • World map terrains now have map sets that define which combat maps are used per terrain.
  • World map locations now have map sets that define which combat maps are used per location
  • Enemies now have to inherit from demon or human base class, in order to appear in the correct random encounters.
  • Food items should be tagged as such to be counted in the campaign mission that requires 100 food items.
  • Item config - changed format for defining abilities. The format now includes the maximum uses per combat.
  • Scenario configuration changed completely (mainscenario.txt)
  • Professions.txt format has changed completely.
  • Skills.txt format has changed for starting skills, to define rarity.
  • Several skills now have a different ID
  • WorldMapGen.txt format has changed slightly, there is now an additional ".game" subset for future support of multiple map options.

  • Config.txt - the syntax for defining difficulty levels has changed.
  • Items.txt - changed the way "valuemul" is defined to support more than one multipliers.

Update 12 - backward compatibility breaking changes Edit

  • Research now requires categories to be defined for every research subject, and the recommended tree structure has changed.
  • Armor items now require a health value to be defined.
  • Food items must now be declared.
  • Food bonuses definitions have changed.
  • The default Map biomes have changed, and the old ones have been removed.
  • Game balancing has changed dramatically, so mods should be adjusted or become unbalanced compared to the default stuff.
