Better Drifters is a great mod, but a few really bad design choices ruin an otherwise great experience
Here is a custom build of Better Drifters with a few key changes that fix these flaws:

Removed nightmare blade drop. It was overpowered and caused issues
Reinstated the temporal gear drop from Double-Headed Drifters
Low tier drifters have their old "nnn" sound effects reinstated
Higher tier drifters will now use the "ghrough" sound effects
Removed the "ghrough but with reverb" sound effects
Drifters no longer drop excessive amounts of twine
Like seriously, what were they thinking??

This mod was originally only designed for my single player world but I heard a lot of people on discord complaining about the same few problems expressing them as dealbreakers, so figured I would post it here for people to use on their servers. This version will be removed when the balance issues are addressed in the main mod.

NOTE: Ownership of this mod belongs to Mr1k3 the only reason i'm uploading this as its own mod and not a patch because you can't patch other people's patches nor can you patch over their files after they have already been patched. I don't like uploading other people's work but sadly this is the only way to make it happen. This is a temporarly solution.

Yanazake I might bring the blade back in a future update, but it will be far rarer and with worse stats.
But honestly it's such a poorly designed item that i'm not exactly in a hurry to bring it back any time soon.

The lack of blade drop is the ONLY downside tho. This is clearly a better option

💬 OmegaHaxors, Nov 23rd at 8:04 PM

Yanazake Download the original if you want to see the blade. This is just a fork for people who don't want the OP stuff.
XammeR2277 It adds no worldgen so it's safe to add to or remove from an existing world.

💬 Yanazake, Nov 22nd at 7:48 PM

So this makes them spawn less, but with more danger added to the mix and better drops as well as more variety?

NOW I'M CURIOUS. I kinda would like the op weapon tho.

Can this mod be added to already generated world, or you need to generate new one?

I mistook the twine, for the fibers and reversed the roles, I was literally thinking; "This man removed a key ingredient and a key item drop from Drifters, what a mad man"

*Then it clicked when I joined my game. I'm glad I can break my legs again.

Nice, really missed this mod in my current playthrough

💬 l33tmaan, Nov 17th at 9:04 PM

Oh, okay. As long as I'm getting some flax every now and again I'm happy.

💬 OmegaHaxors, Nov 17th at 7:24 AM

It does.
I removed the flax twine drop completely, but it still drops the fibers at a boosted rate.

💬 l33tmaan, Nov 17th at 1:51 AM

Do they still drop SOME twine?

A reply to your comment on the Better Drifters mod;

Does this include the textures of the drifters, I'll gladly use this if my legs get broken, and they look the part doing so. <3
