[Discord][Buy Me A Coffee]

I'm living in Ukraine and there is war happening right now. Most of my free time I spend on modding when I get a few hours between electricity blackouts.
If you love my work, you can support me on Patreon, I would greatly appreciate it ❤️. Donations keep me doing what I truly love - modding.

modid: flags

Moby and I have worked tirelessly for a month on this mod, and we're excited to finally present it to you!

The first mod of its kind to introduce extremely customizable banners to Vintage Story!

Should be safe to use in existing saves, but not recommended to remove unless you want to lose existing banners!

The mod is written entirely from scratch and well tested, but some bugs may still remain.

Features include:

  • 70+ banner patterns (full list)
  • Boat / raft customization system using banners (including Joy of Sailing).
  • Bed customization system using banners.
  • Config window. Toggle with hotkey (default: Ctrl + Shift + B)
  • Banner preview HUD. Toggle in config.
  • Banner overview HUD. Toggle in config.
  • Custom commands
  • Minecraft to Vintage Story banner converter
  • Pattern system. Apply, remove and copy patterns for banners.
  • Cutouts system for creating pennons 
  • Rename, rotate, and change model of banners
  • Pattern unlocking system implementing basic and rare patterns that can be bought from traders or found in ruins.
  • Wind animation system that makes banners flutter in the wind.
  • Pattern group system (for modders).
  • Banner modes
    • Edit mode
    • Pick up on right-click
    • Save rotations
    • Wind mode (wind animation)
  • Visual and audio effects when interacting with banners

For any help with the mod, contact me on my discord server or on official VS discord.

If you are a modder interested in adding your own banners and/or patterns, mod is designed to support addons seamlessly.

DanaCraluminum i could screenshare via discord sometime!

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 2 days ago

SkullyDog Could you send screenshot somewhere? Also what banner you used and what patterns you expected it to unlock?

💬 SkullyDog, 2 days ago

I seem to have an issue where learning the banner pattern is only available for that banner i learned it from. is there something i may be doing wrong?


💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 6 days ago

endey Could you join official vs discord and ping me in "mods" channel?

💬 endey, 6 days ago

yeah sure, my discord is endeyfire.
im under the mild assumption right now that theres a significant mod conflict between your mod and something else. might wanna get the modlist from the other dude who said his game was stuttering, and do a comparison with mine.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, 6 days ago

endey I'm debugging the mod non-stop for few days already and still haven't found the source of lags, could you help me in discord with this?

💬 endey, 6 days ago

im getting lag spikes every second with this mod. which is a shame.

💬 SniperGecko, Jul 4th at 5:54 PM

My ideas- sadly- often do. Thanks for reading it, though. :)

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jul 4th at 5:51 PM

SniperGecko Both these solutions require too much work

💬 SniperGecko, Jul 4th at 5:44 PM


The following idea goes to solving the issue you brought up but through its own mod, I'd think.
The ability to alter the offered trade stock by way of.. almost making requests.

I can think of two ways right-off; having a small special-scroll holder in which you can place a scroll with a desired 'focus' (Purchase Order). For example, you might write a couple different PO scrolls, Artisan:Tapestry, Artisan:Storage, Artisan:Flowerpot. A particular Artisan trader may have a scroll holder than can hold only one scroll or two or many.
Let's say you place an Artisan:Storage Purchase Order into their scroll-holder. Check back after a day or two and the scroll is gone and half the trades have been replaced with a variety of Storage Vessels- and what luck; the artwork you wanted is available! You got what you wanted so you place an Artisan:Wallpaper PO into the scroll-holder. A few days later you see that the wallpaper you wanted to sell is not there, darn. Adding another Artisan:Wallpaper would change the stock options again; or just leaving it for several days will revert his trades back to the original options.

A mod like this could be used to add support for many mods simply through adding their PO as part of their mod, if a Purchase Order mod were in a pack. For this mod you could have Artisan:Banners. Then the default-trades are unaffected unless a player opts in. Then once they have what they need, the trades revert anyway.

The second way would be placing some block near their wagon outside of their claim to change their trades. Less interesting but would be affective. Perhaps just placing banners around their camp to add Banner trades and removing them to remove the trades.

SiiMeR I can't reproduce lag spikes in single player

💬 SiiMeR, Jul 4th at 5:23 PM

The latest version (v0.30.0) causes a ton of lag on my server. The frametimes become extremely unstable and the fps is lower overall. Reverting to v0.29.1 fixed the issue immediately. 

Looking at logs and performance graphs, I didn't notice anything odd.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, Jul 2nd at 8:32 AM

Jenpai I don't want to add new traders for few things, any ideas how to fix this other way? I tried to make them rarer in trader window but then they leave empty slots

💬 Jenpai, Jul 1st at 7:07 PM

Couldn't help but notice that banners really clog up merchant's stock; Might be a good idea to have their own merchant?image

Please make a Hexagon or Honeycomb patern!

💬 OmegaHaxors, May 26th at 1:19 PM

Epic, but I don't play the game any more, I just check in every now and then to make sure none of my mods broke.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, May 26th at 8:34 AM

Mobius Thank you, enjoy!

💬 Mobius, May 25th at 10:26 PM

Looks sooo satisfying, gonna have fun with this!

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, May 25th at 6:29 PM

vsochi I believe Tyron wouldn't allow me to add creeper pattern, otherwise Microsoft will sue his game. You could make addon for my mod if you want it

💬 vsochi, May 25th at 6:27 PM
