Currently-released mods:
  • "Adventure" mods:
    • Licenses - Items require licenses to be used. Licenses are acquired with game progression (purchased via. Rewards points).
    • Losing Is Fun - An eclectic collection of assorted gameplay tweaks and additions to make the game more... fun. The unofficial anti-cheese-strat mod.
    • Psycho! - A psycho is on the loose in your world, stalking you during your adventures! Keep your eyes peeled, and your wits sharp!
    • Rewards
      - This mod rewards players for game progression with Progress Points; a spendable, non-transferable currency to purchase rare, hard-to-grind items to speed up the game.
  • "Creative" mods:
    • Better Paint (WIP) - Improves the paint function of the game by adding a spray applicator, letting you paint with full, smooth RGB color across your world. Configurable.
  • "Environment" mods:
    • Wormholes (and also Scroll of Town Portal) - Generates random, two-way traversable wormholes across your world's underground. Also allows players to create a personal wormhole via. a craftable Scroll of Town Portal.
    • Destructible Tiles - Allows tiles to be destroyed by projectiles. Settings exist for tile types, tile armor, projectile type damage, and more.
    • Mounted Magic Mirrors - Lets you craft your Magic Mirrors into wall-mounted fast travel points.
  • "Game Changer" mods:
    • Nihilism - Allows whitelisting and blacklisting items, recipes, mobs, or mob drops by configuration.
    • Locked Abilities - Locks many primary player abilities, particularly those enabled by accessories... including total accessory slots (all but 1)! Abilities may be unlocked only with special accessories.
  • "Game Mode" mods:
    • The Lunatic - A strange-yet-familiar face(?) has appeared in town. Also, the earth starts to tremble ominously... and increasingly. Could the newcomer have something to do with this?
    • Honor Bound - Combines the aforementioned mods together with adjustable settings to soften or harden your challenge accordingly. Settings changes are locked in per-world.
    • Time Limits
      - Does what it says on the tin. Worlds can now be set with time limits to have configurable events take place.
    • Reset Mode
      - Resets the current world after a timer, also resetting all players (except any earned Rewards mod Progress Points).
  • "Helper" mods:
    • Mod Helpers - Provides a wide array of helper functions and utilities for modding. Also includes in-game config editing and issue reporting for mods that implement them (no dependency needed!).
  • "Information" mods:
    • Player Statistics - Adds a control panel tab to show statistics for each player, such as PvP K/D ratio, latency, and general game progress.
  • "Inventory" mods:
    • Encumbrance - Carrying items past your player's hotbar is now a burden to movement. Jumping, attacking, grappling, or mounting in such conditions may cause your items to randomly drop. Additionally, movement will become increasingly sluggish with more item slots in use.
    • Extensible Inventory - Implements an extensible, paginated inventory for players, able to be scaled endlessly.
  • "Item" mods:
    • Durability - Sets tools and weapons to break with use. Designed for challenge modes.

    • Motion Blurs - Displays motion blur trails behind most projectiles and npcs. Instant epic mode.
  • "Monster" mods:
    • Dynamic Invasions (WIP) - Allows crafting summon items for invasions with customized choice of mobs (and music).

    • Uncluttered Projectiles - Reduces visual occlusion of player projectiles and dusts during important game events. Types of events and projectiles/dusts may be configured.
  • "Player" mods:
    • Injury - Taking damage can lower your max health. Options for health management exist.
    • Lives - Limited number of deaths until final (hardcore-style) perma-death.
    • Stamina - Running, jumping, dashing, grappling, and item use all exhaust your player if over done. Exercising and stamina management included.
    • Starvation - Players lose health if they do not keep a Well Fed buff on at all times. Also, the buff depletes 4x faster than usual (configurable). Settings exist to implement food spoilage (as of v1.3.0).

    1. Builds off KO mod to allow controlling, riding, and taming npcs (via. capture with stun/KO).
    2. Implements carrying, deploying, recalling, and "upgrading" tamed npcs.
  • The Ghost
    1. An invincible, insta-killing, slow-moving ghost that begins chasing you if you linger in a given area too long (think Spelunky).

  • Anomalies - Random 'generators' can be found around the map producing odd side effects when near, including (de)buffs, alterations to monster behavior, types, stats, etc.
  • Autoequip - Items can be bound to sets that allow hot swapping entire armor/accessory/weapon/buff loadouts when any of the set is equipped.
  • Clouds - Generates worlds with clouds to the sky, made of cloud block. Might put other stuff in them, or even give them added behaviors (especially during weather events).
  • Conquest - Players align with teams and spawn at either end of the map. What happens from there is up to the server and mod configurations.
  • Glue - Items and monsters can be glued to one another. Composite weapons, Frankenstein abominations, etc.
  • Hotswap Character - Allows players to quickly change their character to another in-game.
  • Magical Minecart Tracks - Implements a way to place temporary minecart tracks automatically as you ride forward. Think Ice Rod, but for tracks.
  • Miasma - Adds poison gasses to caves. May pose various hazards. Assorted methods may be used to ventilate or purify the air, or else cope with the environments.
  • Slime Rancher - Allows capturing, taming, breading, and weaponizing slimes.
  • The Nothing - Creates a special 'biome' that does nothing but spread outward and leave 'nothing' in its wake.
  • Thief Class - Adds an equipment class for disabling, quick killing, and stealing loot from monsters. Not really suited for damage dealing, but makes up for it with other rewards.
  • Wieldable Magic Mirrors - Allows using a magic mirror to teleport things other than the player back to spawn.
  • Legendary Junk - Introduces end game items to the game with extremely low max durability (available uses). May be found lying around, given as quest rewards, monster/boss drops, etc.

Decommissioned mods (until further notice):
  1. Painted Hills (Old) - Sprays patches of random paint colors around the world. Results may vary. Minimap may not reflect actual visuals.
  2. Dowsing (Unfinished) - Provides special rods for locating block types, world objects, rare npcs, and npcs with rare item drops (to be added eventually...?).
  3. Server Browser - Display a list of active multiplayer servers in the multiplayer main menu with join option.
  4. Barriers (Unfinished) - Implements protective barriers that can stop incoming projectiles and enemy NPCs.
See anything you like? Please help support my efforts so I can put the time needed into tackling this daunting list! It'll be worth it!

I can't wait for some of the upcoming mods to come out! I love your already existing mods, and try to use them in a adventure map. Keep up the great work dude!
[doublepost=1511278524,1511278120][/doublepost]And could you possibly add in a feature to Losing is Fun where it disables natural life regen?

Injury already incorporates this (via. Bleeding) on low health. I'll add this as a general option to LIF or Nihilism, though.

Google's free hosting doesn't always hold up. You'll have to wait until less people are on.

Hey, I love your mods. Do you think you could ever make a pet mod... For a small fee?
I wouldn't mind sharing some moneys with to you for all your amazing mods. They are the most balanced ones

I'm not the best sprite artist, but I could make an attempt. Contact me in private.

No. I have a lot of work to update Mod Helpers for something specific I'm trying to do, and then I can worry about the other mods. I'll also be switching to a "lite" Adventure Mode mod concept, before that.
Makes sense, good luck on that!
