Current version: v0.3.4.1 Alpha

Welcome.
I decided to move this mod from the other thread since it's getting bigger and deserves its own.

This mod is going to be an action RPG mod. It's in a very early alpha stage, so some features might not function as intended, bugs are common, use the mod at your own risk.
Multiplayer functionality is not complete (most of the stuff works, though).

Current features:

  • A simple RPG-like level system, XP can be gained from mob kills (the XP gain is determined by a function of the mob's HP, Defense, Damage)
  • On every level-up you get 5 stat points and 1 skill point. These can be spent on the Character Panel (default hotkey: C, set it in the options if it's not set).
  • Base stats: Strength (+Melee Damage, Crit), Magic Power (+Magic Damage, Crit), Dexterity (+Ranged Damage, Crit), Haste (+Melee Speed, +Dodge, +Move Speed), Vitality (+HP, +Defense), Spirit (+Minion Damage, +a little magic damage).
  • Chaos mobs: When a hostile NPC spawns (if it's not a boss) it has a 5% (by default) chance of transforming to a Chaos mob. Killing these grants Chaos Experience.
  • Chaos rank: If you gain enough experience, you'll rank up and get 1 Chaos Point. These can be spent for minor bonuses on the character panel.
  • Skills: They're all passive skills and I don't really intend to introduce active skills to the mod (they doesn't fit Terraria, imo). They are also on the character panel.
  • Despite the stats/skills there is no "class-restriction". You can make any kinds of hybrid builds.
  • This mod adds qualities to items (in a World of Warcraft style). Keep in mind, that only accessories and armor can be qualified better than common (yet).
    Qualities:
    • Common: The default quality for any item.
    • Uncommon: Provides minor bonuses to the player's stats. Min stats: 1, Max stats: 3, chance: 10%
    • Rare: Provides better bonuses than Uncommon. Min stats: 2, Max Stats: 4, chance: 7%
    • Epic: Provides the best bonuses for ordinary qualities. Min stats: 3, Max Stats: 5, chance: 3%
    • Unique: Only some boss dropped items get this quality, stat bonuses are well paired here (no melee-magic combo, etc.).
    Unique quality items are dropped from almost any boss. For now, these are only armor set pieces and can't be obtained any other way.
    Bosses always drop one piece of a set matching their tier. (for example, the Eye of Cthulhu drops Gold Armor pieces, all unique)
    Reforging doesn't reroll the quality of the item. Once an item gets qualified, it cannot be changed.
Many things are tweakable via the config file (the mod creates it by default at Mod Configs/VapeRPG).
"EnableUI": Just a dummy, doesn't do anything right now
"VapeLootRarityRings": Disables/enables the rarity rings around qualified items
"ChaosChance": Percent chance of a mob's chaos transform when spawned
"MinChaosMultiplier": The minimum strength multiplier for chaos mobs
"MaxChaosMultiplier": The exclusive maximum
"FinalMultiplierForXpGain": Basically an xp multiplier used by the xp gain formula (only if the xp gain is not overridden)
"ExperienceGainDistance": The maximum distance at which players gain XP for a kill (from the enemy)
"GlobalXpMultiplier": Xp multiplier which applies for everyone (also affects overridden xp gains)
Works only for vanilla npcs for now
"IgnoredTypesForXpGain": NPCs for which players shouldn't gain XP
"IgnoredTypesChaos": NPCs which shouldn't become chaos
These determine the starting values for some player stats (without bonuses)
Damage, dodge, and melee speed attributes are in percents, e.g 0.65 = 65%
Crits are also in percents but they are integers, e.g 10 = 10%
"DefMeleeDamage"
"DefMagicDamage"
"DefRangedDamage"
"DefThrownDamage"
"DefMinionDamage"
"DefMeleeCrit"
"DefMagicCrit"
"DefRangedCrit"
"DefThrownCrit"
"DefDodge"
"DefMeleeSpeed"
"StatPointsPerLevel": stat points given per level
"LifePerLevel": hp given per level
"ManaPerLevel": mana given per level
"LifePerVitality": hp given per vitality
"ManaPerMagicPower": mana given per magic power
"VitalityPerDefense": amount of Vitality needed for +1 defense
"StrengthPerLife": amount of Strength needed for +1 hp

Dividers are used for determining bonuses given by stats.
MeleeDamage = Strength/MeleeDamageDivider
MagicDamage = Magic Power/MagicDamageDivider
RangedDamage = Dexterity/RangedDamageDivider"
MinionDamage = Spirit/MinionDamageDivider
"MagicDamageBySpiritDivider": Spirit also gives magic damage divided by that
MeleeCrit = Strength/MeleeCritDivider
MagicCrit = Magic Power/MagicCritDivider
RangedCrit = Dexterity/RangedCritDivider
MeleeSpeed = Haste/MeleeSpeedDivider
MoveSpeed = Haste/MoveSpeedDivider
DodgeChance = Haste/DodgeDivider
"SpiritPerMaxMinion": Amount of spirit needed for +1 Max Minion
"SpiritPerMaxTurret": Amount of spirit needed for +1 Max Turret
"MaxDodgeChance": Dodge cap for balancing reasons
Works only for vanilla NPCs for now
The following example overrides the xp gain for Blue Slimes and Demon Eyes, so they always yield 10XP (times the Global Multiplier):
"VanillaXpTable": {
"1": 10.0
"2": 10.0
}

I repeat, the mod is highly volatile in Multiplayer. Tech support won't necessarily be provided if you encounter any bugs with it. However, if you have time for testing MP, go ahead. You may report bugs here and when I have time, I'll try to fix it.

Don't use this mod in combination with VapeLoot (yet).

On the other hand, I'm open for feature suggestions to this mod.

Have you looked into the multi-player crash people are reporting with this mod when used in combination with mods that adds a large number of npcs (like calamity or thorium for example)? If that could be fixed then me and a friend would gladly test multi-player for you :)

Currently, I'm having a huge issue regarding my free time but when I finish my exams I'll try to look into it.
The situation is that the MP problem with modified NPC code seems to be a global issue and we might have to wait for it to be fixed in a newer TML version.

can level above 199
and 100 chaos
So you're saying you can level past the limits? I thought I've fixed this.

Have you considered any respecc options? Like something very expensive to craft that resets your stats buy gives you all the skill points again. Maybe both for abilities and passive stats.

Also, should we be able to spec further in a tree with only 1/3 in the earlier skills?

Sometimes the character menu just stops working and stops responding to being clicked on
 
So idk if this mod is still active, but the shredder tree seems highly unbalanced. One for all seems to proceed very often to the point of trivializing the game, and the close range combat skill in shredder is absurdly overtuned. To the point where I'm hitting 2.7k crits with a dart rifle. The close range skill also applies to melee weapons which seems silly. One last thing, for some reason when I respect it sometimes multiplies my chaos points, and CRank 16 I have ~500 from respect. I also don't know if you take suggestions but maybe you could tie the ofa %chance to either dmg of hit or defense of npc, maybe even tie it to the xp value of said npc, it seems too strong with summons and fast hitting weapons.
[doublepost=1517062899,1517062746][/doublepost]Also maybe change close range combat to long range? IDK about others but most of the time enemies are on top of me, so I don't end up playing around the mod, it's just a flat damage increase.
[doublepost=1517063023][/doublepost]Oh and another thing lol, crit chance seems overtuned as well, maybe cap it at vanilla+30 or something?

I wasn't aware of the close combat specialist bug until now. Thanks for the notification.
Same goes for the stacking of chaos points. I'll fix these as soon as I can.

I also tune the balance step by step throughout the updates.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Awesome!, i was worried that the mod was abandoned since the threads last response was in november lol.

I am doing a playthrough with this mod and found a lot of bugs.(will add more as I find)
1. Major bug. Items in chests, piggy bank etc. lose qualities on relog.
1.1. Actually, they do keep them but don't display them in chests.
2. I could "requalify" items with item frame. Put an item in a item frame and get it out again to replicate.
3. Enemy projectiles can be chaos monsters and actually give chaos xp. Maybe check if monster's health is at least 2 to make it chaos monster? Also, enemy projectiles give exp if killed with Shield of Cthulhu dash.
4. EoW has few bugs. Its expert mode projectiles give 728xp due to bug 3, and it is too much. And its body parts are not actually boss monsters, so one above all works for it(but only kills one body part so not very broken). Also it doesn't drop any armor piece(nvm skeletron drops them).
4.1. One above all also works for skeletron(and prime)'s hands.
4.2. Also works for destroyer, making it possible to one shot it with just wooden bow and jester arrow.
4.3. Also works for dungeon guardian.
5. Not really a bug, but a weird mod interaction. Accesories with higher rarity seem to give more bonus, and luiafk mod adds very early game accesory that has red rarity(he said he really likes red...). This accesory can give 60+ bonus each.
6. Unique items from boss has expert tag, but only after relog.
7. Unique items from boss seems underwhelming. Gold armors from EoC gives +4-7 for 3 stats, Epic gold armor that I made gives +10-15 for 3 stats. Or am I thinking wrong and unique items' main advantage is guaranteed drop?(nvm only gold armors are pretty bad. Later bosses drop good armors)
8. First touch seems to have rounding error. Mobs with 10n health take n+1 damage from first touch. eg) blue slime in expert has 50 health and takes 6 damage from first touch. Very trivial, but looks really weird.
9. Reforge is broken. It doesn't play the hammer sound and doesn't display new modifier so I had to manually mouse over each time I reforged something.
10. Close combat specialist is VERY broken. I have at least x3 damage for enemies barely in screen and about x10 for enemies right next to me. I can one-shot EoC with boomstick. I could one shot plantera and two shot golem with a freaking onyx blaster.


Other stuff to say
This mod desperately needs exp bar.
Early game penalty seems too harsh. with -40% damage(and additional -10% to melee) and expert mod, every green slime was a miniboss. I suggest making first few points give way more damage bonus but no crit bonus. eg) 153 dex is 100.4% ranged damage and 20% ranged crit. To reach vanilla dps, player needs about 110 dex(around 90%dmg, 15%crit). And because quality items are hard to come by, early game player deals only 1 damage to any slightly strong monster. I found myself abusing bug 2 to just stay alive.
Late game scaling seems too good. With unique armor from mechs and little grinding, I had over 80% crit, 100% damage, 700 health. Natural regen scales with max health weirdly, so I was basically invincible.
I can't use any life/mana crystal and I think it is intentional, but it is very hard to reach 400 health without long grinding. Fore mana, neither magic power nor spirit gives any max mana, so mages are stuck with very low max mana for early game(and it is really annoying)
The skills are very creative. They are not some boring flat dps/defense that many rpg mods add. They reward specific combat style in a fun way.
The visuals are very nice. Level up feels very special with firework particles. Killing chaos enemy with one above all and seeing texts pop up feels satisfying.

I haven't personally encountered the quality losing bug but I'll check.
During Summer, I'll have time to work on the mod again, so I'll check these.
In the meantime, updated the mod to the most recent tmodloader version.

v0.3.3 is out.
Most of the problems mentioned above should be fixed now.
I also balanced a bit and added new stuff, too.
 
I would suggest both making a Discord server for bug reports (if there isn't one yet) and a suggestion to let the players change the scaling of the UI Element instead of going to the source code - or at least make it changeable through the config file.

This mod shows a lot of promise and it's clear you care about it's quality.

I would like to request/suggest an option in it's config files; a setting to turn off Vape Loot and it's rarity "rings" (a separate option, of course). I agree with others that there are balancing issues here or there, but I overall am very fond of the mod. However, I personally don't like randomized stats and with my mod setups the modifier stats make any of my characters OP very quickly. I've also found that that rarity rings cause FPS drops (at least on weaker machines).

Thank you for your time.

Im looking for a good rpg mod and I found ti, but still having issues like mana enforcement... What mage can cast their spells if dont have enough mana? As gortard said... Any atribute, magic nor spirit, raises The Max mana... And we cant use mana stars neither, then. .. How we CAN raise The mana?? I think that is a very important thing about mages...

I'm glad you like it!
I'll include it in the config file and update the mod throughout the weekend.
