How do you make a STATS MOD?

Hi,I want to make a stats mod. How do I make this, with which program do I make this mod. Why? The reason is I want to speedrun this game, but I don’t want to have RNG on my hearthlings :merry:. So I want to great a mod that everybody has 4 mind, body and spirit.

Earlier topics from me:

Thanks for reading and / or helping :jubilant:

There are 2 existing mods which should do what you’re looking for:

the first is the Super X mod found at Kodi4444's workshop mods or the Steam workshop. It gives you a config file so you can set all hearthlings to any range of stats you like – so you can make them all 4/4/4, or like 3-6 with a maximum of 12 if you want a little bit of randomness but still reliably no “bad” hearthlings.

The other mod is BEAM, which can be found here at Beam - Hearthling Stats Customization or again on the workshop. This lets you pick out not only stats, but also traits – perfect for min/maxing “super hearthlings” specially build for their job, e.g. make sure your farmer or cook has Green Thumb and your soldiers have Glutton (for extra health!) It only works on the starting 6 hearthlings sadly, but it allows you to start the game with your “perfect set” of hearthlings regardless of what your initial roll is. Remember to tick “unlock selections” if you want to be able to freely move attribute points and go over their original total (by default, the mod won’t let you increase the total skill count unless you’ve unlocked the selection.)

Dear @YetiChow,
I know this mods are there in the Steam Workshop. But the BEAM is only for the beginning hearthlings and I want all of my hearthlings in the whole game with 4 stats. And the X mod from Kodi4444 doesn’t because I cannot change the value because I haven’t a program to change the file.smod :forlorn:. Any program to open a .smod or a .json file?

basic text editors like Windows Notepad or Notepad++ (which, AFAIK, is compatible on all operating systems) will work for a .json file

Notepad++ is the usual recommendation, since it’s free and easy to use :merry:

To open smod files you just unzip it like you would do with a zip file.

It won’t be a problem if you guys make the mod. Thanks :merry:
