Eh, I haven't figured out how to add translation. Thanks for the offer though.

Sure, I attatched the zip file.
Translations are easy. Here's an example from an item from Antiaris:
        public override void SetStaticDefaults()
            DisplayName.SetDefault("Adventurer Crystal");
            Tooltip.SetDefault("Pressing the 'Special Ability' key will teleport you to a random position\n[c/C35377:Only one adventurer item can be worn]");
            DisplayName.AddTranslation(GameCulture.Chinese, "冒险家水晶");
            Tooltip.AddTranslation(GameCulture.Chinese, "点击“特殊能力”键将你传送到随机位置\n[c/FFB640:【如何设置“特殊能力”键】]\n请在游戏开始界面寻找“设置-控件-快捷键绑定”\n找到Mod Controls选项\n找到“Antiaris:Special Ability并修改按键”,默认按键为“L”\n[c/C35377:“特殊能力”类型饰品只能佩戴一件]");
            DisplayName.AddTranslation(GameCulture.Russian, "Кристалл путешественника");
            Tooltip.AddTranslation(GameCulture.Russian, "Нажатие на кнопку 'Специальная способность' телепортирует Вас в случайное место\n[c/C35377:Можно носить только один предмет путешественника]");
As you can see, you just add: DisplayName.AddTranslation(GameCulture.[name], "text"); (For the display name) and ToolTip.AddTranslation(GameCulture.[name], "text"); for the tooltip.

EDIT: Should also note that "[c/lettersandnumbers:text] is just the color. Replace "lettersandnumbers with whatever color you want it to be (In hexadecimal).
Use this for finding colors. (HTML uses hexadecimal color codes.)

Because of the mod browser's servers going down recently (they're back now), there was a list released of over 200 mods released within the last few months that were taken off because of the servers screwing up. I am here to let you know, yours was on the list! Make sure to publish the mod again as soon as possible
There is a bug with Charon's coins in multiplayer where if they're used, all the players get sent to the death point.
