Latest file for v1.18.1:
UsefulDrifterLoot 1-click install

First mod I've made.

Simple mod that rebalances drop rates for drifters. This mod will not work with other mods that override the droptables for drifters.
This mod aims to keep vanilla balance mostly intact, making the game only slightly easier. Simply put, you won't find empty drifters anymore, making them more worthwhile to cut open.

- All drifters will now drop at least 1 gear piece. You can combine 8 of these to make a rusty gear.
- All drifters have a chance to drop molybdochalkos nuggets. Generally one of the least useful metals, used for lanterns and decoration.
- Surface drifters now rarely drop metal scrap, limestone rocks, sticks, cattails and salt.
- Deep drifters now rarely drop metal scrap
- Higher tier drifters drop more gear pieces and molybdochalkos nuggets.

Will this mod be updated for 1.19.x?

💬 TheSapphicSeas, Nov 22nd 2023 at 1:22 AM

Does this mod still work?

Hello, We are getting a game crash when we loot drifter with an unhandled exception. the drifter loot box becomes empty and the items are invisible after the crash? thoughts ?

There are conflicts with the XScills mod again ... In the empty slots, most likely - what was added by the XScills mod.

Could you please make gear pieces craftable? I woud love to use them as a currency on my server, but if players want to buy stuff that's cheaper than 1 gear and they have crafted all pieces into gears already, we run into trouble. A simple recipe that converts them back would be awesome.

I assume this doesn't alter temporal gear drops at all? Because after getting the mod we've been getting a massive influx of them. 
Maybe we're just lucky

I'll take a look into possible XSkills conflicts.

💬 SecretFoxfire, May 27th 2023 at 9:58 PM

The XSkills crash has been happening on my server as well for players with the looter skill. They had to unlearn the skill to stop crashing.

💬 Pyrahead, May 27th 2023 at 6:28 AM

Is there a config for this mod? If not, could you make one?

Also can anyone confirm the xskills crash too?

💬 Thranos, May 24th 2023 at 12:04 AM

This appears to be causing client crashes when used in combination with the XSkills "looter" skill (when a client with said skill tries to harvest a drifter). Somehow.

Thank you for updating to 1.18.1! This mod gives me a reason to murder drifters, and not feel like i'm wasting my time!

They do drop temporary gears. Yesterday two among about 30 drifters more

patience and faith xd

💬 0mni, Jan 21st 2023 at 6:49 AM

is this in addition to the original loot drops like gears and temporal gears dont seem to be dropping from regular drifters anymore.

💬 rebus, Jan 18th 2023 at 8:53 PM

ahh yes, thank you very much.


💬 KetraiAuthor, Jan 18th 2023 at 5:38 PM

 Press H on a gear piece to open the handbook recipe for it.

💬 rebus, Jan 17th 2023 at 5:59 PM

...You can combine 8 of these to make a rusty gear.    What ? where?

Thank you.
