Hi everyone,

To run the tool, you need to execute file Mod updater.exe

Usage and functionalities:

  • Default mod path: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Roaming\VintagestoryData\Mods you can change it after first run editing modsdir.txt file
  • You can choose if you want to search mods by manual search (y) or rather let the tool do the job for you and search according to mods' directory content (n).
  • Any downloaded files will appear in output directory.
  • If you want to update your current mods' directory just copy files from output and use them to replace old ones in your vs mod directory. 

I hope this tool will save you some time. Feel free to look through the code and modify it by yourself. 

Best regards:

Special thanks for fixing to Stahl <3

Really big thanks to Stahl for fixing this mod <3 . I have plans to upgrade this mod to GUI version. I can't give you exact release date yet because of much of work on studies. Anyway I'm here and I remember about this tool guys.

Seems the site coding has changed; an updated working script available here.

Thank you for your review, I'm glad to hear you liked it. About copying this tool to mod's folder, actually you don't have to, just copy full path to your mod folder at first time tool is starting and asking you for mods directory. Then you can also manually add or modify it by pasting/changing mod's directory path in file modsdir.txt in tool's location.

NOTE: you have to put this in the mod's folder. else it just closes.

just tested it, i thought it will bring an UI and i would have to manually select what do i want to update but... it does not, at least not in automatic and IT'S AMAAAAAZING!!! :D i just let it run by itself and it's fantastic. the only thing someone may be concerned is the fact that sometimes it doesn't "find" the right mod BUT if it finds more than one "possibility" (for example i have visible terra pretta) it will ask for which one you want (in my case it was also the visible ores option), which, again, is AMAZING.

you should update a bit the description to tell people what does it do because at first sight it may not be interesting for everyone. i closed the tab and in the last second i re-opened it and i'm glad i did it :D
