Requirements
Permissions and credits
Mirrors
PRACTICALLY ALL MODS WILL NOT WORK AS OF 2020 UNLESS YOU PUT THE FILE THAT YOU EXECUTE INTO "OFFLINE" MODE VIA THE BOTTOM LEFT OF BLCMM.  THIS DOES NOT PREVENT MATCHMAKING, RATHER IT IS A
METHOD TO FIX MODS NOT WORKING DUE TO SOME UNINTENTIONAL CHANGES TO BL2 FROM GEARBOX.




ALL OF MY MODS WILL NOT WORK IF YOU DO NOT HEX EDIT YOUR GAME AGAIN IF YOU
HAVE NOT PLAYED SINCE THE FIGHT FOR SANCTUARY DLC OR THE UHD GRAPHICS
UPDATE!

DO NOT USE BLCMM TO HEX EDIT YOUR GAME, BUT USE IT FOR EVERYTHING ELSE!

THE "UHD" UPDATE CHANGED THE EXE SO YOU WILL HAVE TO USE THE FOLLOWING TO
HEX EDIT IT FOR THE CONSOLE AFTER VERIFYING YOUR FILES VIA STEAM:


https://www.nexusmods.com/borderlands2/mods/54

IF YOUR GAME REFUSES TO ACTUALLY START, LOOK FOR "ddraw.dll" IN YOUR WIN32
FOLDER IN YOUR BL2 BINARIES DIRECTORY, THEN DELETE IT.




THIS MOD MUST BE MERGED IN BLCMM TO BE USED CORRECTLY!
OFFICIAL DOWNLOAD FOR THE TOOL IS AS FOLLOWS

GENERAL OVERVIEW

Big frigging loot beams that cast shock and awe into your enemies (not that they actually care).
Pretty much every aspect of this mod is customizable, there are 3 presets and a custom preset maker.

[1] Loot beams, adjusted in size and height offset item type icons and item cards.  This pretty much means you can see a huge loot beam in the distance and if you have line of sight, you can see what item category it belongs to (grenade, shield, relic, etc).

[2} Loot beams only.  Pretty self explanatory, only the loot beams are changed, keeping vanilla displays in mind.

[3] Cheat Mode.  Same as [1], but it allows you to see item cards from across the map and pickup items from across the map regardless of line of sight.

Includes an updated version of my Gunless Unique Item Sound Notifier either for Vanilla, UCP, or Reborn.
This mod allows you to choose from a variety of noises and particle effects to play when an item of your choosing is physically dropped on the floor.
This helps simulate that ARPG feeling, however, not all audio is map wide.



Known Issues

  The particles from certain item drops do not always play for some reason, but the audio does.

  Presets that alter item type icon and item card size and height locations will make viewing them up close require you to stare upwards.

  I cannot make item cards use a separate height value from item icons, which means you cannot have big item type icons in the sky while
  having normal, ground level item card displays.
