Latest file for v1.18.10:
lessdrift_1.3.0.zip 1-click install


A small tweak I made for playing on my server with my less combat-oriented friends.

  • Disabled drifter idle noises
  • Reduced maximum light level allowed for spawning. This should help with in-house spawning with early game light sources.
  • Decreased total group sizes. This still has default difficulty scaling with nearby players.
  • Increased distance from player drifters are allowed to spawn
  • Faster carving for loot

mod DOES NOT work for 1.18.15, i havent had much in-terms of big drifter spawns until i put this mod on, immediately there was 7 drifters all loudly grunting waiting for me to peak and get killed

IndustryStandard Glad someone else is getting some use out of it. I'm still tweaking it here and there, but I made it for the same reason. The combat is just not in a state yet where having to fight off 10-15 of these things every day just to get out of the house can be considered fun, and I got sick of them spawning behind me in my well-lit house and nearly killing me.

No comments is odd, this mod is great. 

Girlfriend and I killed easily 40+ in just a small section of a cave and wanted to throw a keyboard from how frustrated it was becoming, combats not satisfying enough in this game to warrant this much.
