DevKit .037

DevKit gives modders a means to do with less hassle from survival and looting aspects via cheats.

  • Minimal merging required; no matter the mod
  • No new game required
  • BBC mod included

How to Install
How to Merge
Changelog
Download

Use
BACKUP your save, and craft the necklace. Either with a twig in existing games, or the DevSauce skill handed to you on newgames. Right-click on necklace to "use" it and open the cheat menu.

CheatMenu
The CheatMenu gives you the option to spawn a set of items designed to jump-start your character, or to activate cheat abilities. If you want to remove any of the abilities, then open the menu again and select "want". Don't add anything, and click "confirm".

EmptyBox. The JumpStartKit dropped at the players feet has an empty box included. Mod authors can put their custom items in it without having to mess with other sensitive parts of the game. Just look for treasure 2491 in the .xml and start adding stuff. Make sure Devkit is placed further down the line than the other mods in the getmods.php file.

Issues

Spoiler: Highlight to view
  • Doesn't let you select all skills like BBC did.
  • REMOVE THE TESTER SKILLS VIA THE CHEAT MENU BEFORE REMOVING THE MOD! or just don't remove the mod.
  • Game has an inherit limit of 28 skills, which can be reached when merged with NSE. There are ways to fix this, but they require modding the graphical size of skills.

Compatible with game version 1.15

Thanks for your work on this mod. :)

I've installed mods before, EXE Patchwork m(onster)od is installed and working atm. Tried to install it but I didn't see the DevSauce or a recipe to make a coin. Any idea what might be the problem, I'm using the latest Steam build 1.14, iirc.

Thanks

I'm looking into it right now, while i'm confirming this i have to ask 2 things:

1) if you started a new game? this only works with new games
2) did you confirm that you got Devkit working before you tried merging it?

#2 is a basic troubleshooting step that saves everyone headaches, just rename your current getmods to something else so you don't have to find it again/edit it again and get to work.

update:

I've confirmed that DevKit works with Patchwork without any complications. You've done something wrong on your end.

Here is a screenshot of what your getsmods file should look like

Then your folder containing NEOScavenger.exe should look like this

Thanks for your reply and help.

I just tried to install it stand alone, so yes I started a new game with just DevKit .021. The only reason I mentioned Patchwork was to show I could/knew how to install mods. I installed Patchwork, once I realized DevKit .021 was not working for me. Guess I should have been more clear, was probably half awake or half asleep att. I'll try it again.

Oh forgot to answer one of your questions directly, no never tried to merge anything with DevKit .021.

keep me posted, and if you figure it out lemme know what the problem was.

Does anyone here 17 year here? Or forgotten the game? Mod is not working,do everything as instructed and the Devsauce missing. Game version is 1.15

Same! Devsauce doesn't show up when I open up the crafting menu, I already watched the install video and did every single step there.

Did you make sure devkit was in a "mods" folder? if you look at the getmods .xml you'll notice that devkit expects to be found in a folder called Mods, and then inside that folder is the Devkit folder.

I can't add items from NSExtended. When i try to add items to the box, the game loads only up to 86% and stops there... I see 1 thing - this items have X.X (aTreasures) ID not X:X Id...can you teach youre mod read X.X?

Ok, if you read the other post before I deleted it then ignore it.

Load NSE BEFORE DevKit in the getmod file. Then study this image.

Hi,
Love the Devkit mod, tho can only get it working on new games.

The dev comments make it sound like it should be possible to use on a saved game.
Could anyone offer some help?

Followed the install instructions carefully and it runs flawlessly on new games.

When I say it doesn't work, I mean devsauce doesn't appear in crafting menu in saved games.

Running:
MacOS 10.13.5
Latest NS version through Steam

Respect to the creator!

in already existing games you won't get DevSauce, but you should be able to craft the necklace out of Twigs. 5 of them i think.

The necklace is what lets you activates the cheats, the twigs/or DevSauce are a means to craft the necklace.

How to add foil to custom box or bbc ?

i may have an oversight onto how that works, so i'll have to fix that later, but...

Edit the xml located in DevKitAddOn. Find this: https://i.imgur.com/FNPejNi.png

Then this https://i.imgur.com/jFRkQwA.png and create a new treasure ID for it.

scroll all the way to the bottom and create a new block of code of the TreasureTable types and give it a matching ID number. Then add stuff to it.

Amazing, simply amazing. As BigBadCheater seemed to be getting further and further out of date, I was losing hope for another cheat mod :).

Any chance we can get Mega Human from BBC as well? It's not here for me.

~STAHP..
HAMMA TIME.~

if i remember correctly, adding that would force some changes to how the mod is handled in the background with OverRides that I don't want to implement.

Hey, I'm installing DevKit with MmMOD but even if I clean install Neo Scavenger, both mods, and then use the provided combined getmods file, DevKit won't work. And yes, I have DevKit inside a Mods folder,

(Neo Scavenger/Mods/DevKit/...)

and I haven't messed with getmods. But it still won't load. Devkit works on its own.

I can't figure out what's going wrong?

I can't seem to find the option to spawn the survival spawner 1 and 2 on the crafting panel. I'm running the mod with NSE and I followed the install steps.

Everything else works great! Nice job on the mod!

after crafting them they disappeared from view. exiting the craft scene and going back showed them where they ought to be.

but basically, I worked on my end with latest version of NSE

I started a new game and I managed to spawn the survival spawners. Apparently the crafting recipies break when you play the game on small GUI, forcing some of the recipies out of bounds and unavailable unless you change resolution. Thanks for the reply!

Pardon Necroing the thread, but perhaps this may help those as dull as myself.

Obviously the entire thread here should be read since that may clear up issues.

If you start a game, you will get the dog-man scenario, but before that, if you installed the Devkit mod properly (and only for the BBC, which is what I did), you will get a prompt that you found a coin (or a way to get the coin--the prompt may be that you have a new skill--DevSauce--which will get you the coin). I always hit Confirm, which takes me through the dog-man scenario. Resolve that as you will. If you have a game already, use 1 or 5 twigs (I had 5, so I dropped them in) in the crafting menu, which will create a coin for you.

After you are out of the cryo-facility, look in your inventory. You will see a coin (or crafting menu to use the skill to get the coin). Right-click the coin and press "use". You will get three things to pick. The first (NEEDS) gives you a care package (should you choose it) which you should equip in your hand, or somewhere where you can access the contents. I'm not sure what the second one does, I believe it is WANTS, and it is explained somewhere in this forum to a degree. The third one is EVERYTHING, and choose that one if you wish the tokens, as seen in layarion's thread (which I am replying to). The blue circles with golden frills surrounding them.

Picking EVERYTHING will give you a skill call CHEATER. Pick that one (put it into the crafting menu), to get the tokens to get various items.

Those coins, or tokens, will appear in your inventory. If you want ammo, like I did, choose the ammo token and put it in the crafting menu. NOTE that there is an ARROW after the first ammo type. You can press this "right-arrow" to get to the ammo type you want (valid for the weapons token as well, and I assume any others which can give more than one item).

I missed this and was beating my head against the wall. I finally noticed the "right-arrow".

In fact, when you craft "cheater", the CONFIRM button has a right-arrow as well, and you can get various types of tokens (blue circles with golden frills surrounding them) for various items.

I am assuming this is how it works. It worked for me that way. I may later find that I installed the mods incorrectly and this is a fluke, but that may not happen.

It's like that in the base game too. anytime a single recipe can have more than one possible output, that arrow shows up.

is there anything I should add to the OP or just leave it?

Everything looks good here. Thank you for responding. I wanted to post my experience coming back to the game after about 7 years. I forgot about that little right-arrow, lol. It drove me up a wall until I saw it. I guess I need new glasses.

Is there a way to add new abilities beyond the 15-point Limit at the start and/or later in the game through the mod? If so, i haven't found it yet and would appreciate some help.

Edit: Maybe make the DevSauce Ability into a flaw that you can pick when starting a new game with a very high point value?

off the top of my head I don't think I'll be able to do that without breaking the original goal of the mod, keep it easy to merge.

Im a total noob in these modding things and I don't know how to add items for my character can you please explain to me like i have never ever touched a computer where I should add the text for items I don't know anything about it.

I don't fully understand the question, could you try explaining it again?

So ı don't know how to add items from devkit what should i do to get the items i want? I don't know which inputs to use for the items.

Maybe your asking how to get to the cools stuff.

Open your crafting menu and move the "devsauce" skill to your crafting window, you should see a necklace that you can craft. If not, try crafting the necklace from a twig.

so goal 1, craft the necklace. if you can't do that, consider that you installed the mod incorrectly.

goal 2, use the necklace. All you have to do it wear it around your neck, right-click on it, and click "Use". A menu should open up, and you should be able to figure things out from there.

Ok done that but there is only 3 options for me "want" "need" "everything" and i can only get the same items ( yukan bag, armor, shotgun etc...) How can ı get the items like foil poncho for example?

get the "cheater" skill and put it into the crafting window.

First time i did it did not register the "cheater" now it did and i feel stupid (when you say xml files i thought this is some deep modding) thank you.

the xml bit was for other mod writers that wanted their items to spawn in the cardboard box.

Thank you for your help. I didn't realize I need to keep everything inside a mod folder because a lot of mods require me to scatter all individual mods around like a maniac. thanks for being considerate and keeping my folders less swamped!

bit.ly is down. I would like to try this mod. Can you please find hosting for it somewhere else? Thank you!

Thank you for reading this.

seems to be working on my end, try it again or check if something on your end blocked it.
