Old thread: Modding DLC Items?
No rational basis has been put forward for editing the DLC databases and/or resources, except a couple users implicating the devs being utterly incompetent in developing DRM despite the systems already being present, and absolutely no response from the devs regarding the matter. So I will repost as there’s been no mention of Scooper’s row editor project either.
For some bizarre reason, one that makes Bethesda look like a benevolent and intelligently run company, Funcom have made it impossible to modify the DLC items. There’s no meritable reason for it; if it’s an issue of people getting access to the DLC without paying, merely make a serverside check that handles that. If it’s an issue of essentially making a crack, that’s readily doable anyway for every Steam game. So why are we not allowed to modify the content we paid for?
According to users on the Discord, Scooper will be releasing a row editor that will facilitate that. But I can’t find any details on it, the status of it’s implementation, nor it’s limitations.
My reason for inquiring, is that I was developing an overhaul that completely removed the leveling mechanics, and removed any semblance of tiered equipment by making it all into three classes; light, medium, and heavy, with the stats entirely dependent on their class rather than tier.
Of course, that requires me to edit every item, recipe, and a moderate number of feats. But without the ability to modify DLC data, I cannot continue working on the overhaul. It’s literally impossible, due to the arbitrary and meaningless restrictions by the developers, to mod the DLC.
So when will we be able to do so, if ever?
