DragonLens
... is a modern, powerful, highly-customizable, community-driven cheat and debugging mod for TModLoader. It offers all of your favorite features from previous similar mods such as HEROs mod, CheatSheet, and Modders Toolkit; with a fully customizable UI layout and consistent, beautiful UI design.

For a long time, both players looking for 'creative' like utilities or cheats, and modders looking to test their mods have had to install a litany of different, separate mods to get all of the functionality they needed. This resulted in them having to manage multiple different tools, each with wildly different layouts and visual styles. This would cause problems when UIs overlapped, or sometimes were just plain ugly (looking at you MTK...). My goal with this project is to implement modern versions of these tools, with the power that users want and mod developers need. Not only have the various tools been updated to match 1.4 content (full support for 1.4s new weather system!), the layout of the GUI is Fully customizable! In addition, Every tool can be assigned a hotkey!

The item editor is an extremely powerful tool, combining the functionality of modders toolkit's item editor, the HEROs mod prefix editor, and brand new functionality that allows you to edit compatible variable types on modded items. (For example, if you defined an ``int`` on your ModItem class, you could edit its value here!)

Some data types like NPC and Player have unique selectors, that let you pick an NPC or player in the world.

Modded prefixes will draw their mods SmallIcon next to them to distinguish them in the prefix browser.

Changes:

I still haven't figure out how to download the mod because i'm using a cracked tmodloader maybe, but i'm pretty sure that there is a way to drag to my mod's file but idk how so if anyone knows just tell me
 
It's a remarkable tool, yes.

Suppose I'm trying to use the "Move" Toolbar feature, and instead of me being able to click and hold the button to drag it around, it instead pretends that I'm not holding the button in, and the click just moves the whole bar a little to the upper-right of the cursor instead of letting me drag it.

What would a fella do then, please? I need to get this bar somewhere else but I can't seem to move them at all other than slightly to the upper-right a half-inch at a time.

Hi! with the newest update, this mod completely breaks my game, when I enter a world, my character doesn't move (doesn't even fall), when I press buttons nothing happens, and I can't even exit the game
And I've tested to see if it's just this mod, no other mod, new world and character, and the problem still persists
 
Glad to see it wasn't just me experiencing this character freezing issue.
Suppose while I'm here, I'd like to submit the idea of being able to slide buttons around the toolbars while in Customization mode, mainly to help with sorting the buttons the way you'd like without having to worry about adding them in a specific order.
And maybe the buttons could be disabled, or at least their descriptions, while the bar is down so they don't appear if you hover over where they would be outside the window. That's more of a personal irk though.
 
**DragonLens 1.3.0 Released!**
