About this mod

FFYLands is a huge game overhaul which makes game harder, but more rewarding.
This mod touches almost everything in the game: Guns, Items, Skills, Enemies, Slot Machines, etc.
In other words: it's a big global mod for BL2.

Permissions and credits
Fight For Your Life Lands is a huge mod for Borderlands 2.
Main direction of this mod is to increase game difficulty, change the way you play the game, provide new game experience, and add more items to the game.
It changes game in many ways.
There are
edited enemies, new Guns, New Skills, Shields, Class mods, Difficulty Changes. 
More about changes below.

    I've created a Discord server for FFYL mod.
You can talk about balance issues and many other stuff in my discord server.

 [Important Stuff]

  1.  DO NOT USE UCP WITH THIS MOD! most problems are coming from using UCP. [UCP = Unofficial Community Patch]
  2.  DO NOT USE MORE CHESTS ON PANDORA WITH THIS MOD! It is already included and balanced for FFYLands.
  3.  I don't recommend installing other gear mods, weapons, etc. It will be pretty weak and not balanced for my mod.
  4.  You should play this mod by creating new character and starting new game
  5.  Or, you can play as your other characters and think `this mod is easy <:)` by using strongest pearl weapons from nowhere.
  6.  This mod is recommended to be played in Co-op.
  7.  But more than 3 players is not recommended.
  8.  This mod may force you to ragequit sometimes.
  9.  This mod already has newest version of UCP -  do not use it with this mod!
  10.  Borderlands 2 RU is not supported and not guaranteed to work as intended with FFYLands.
  11.  Sometimes your friend in co-op won't see changed skill tree. He should exit to main menu, execute mod again, and then join to you.
  12.  The problem above could be in 'Spark Keys' Error. Try to Execute FFYLOF instead (Not recommended for the Host).
  13.  If you are playing co-op, then your friend MUST have this mod installed too.
  14.  If game is too hard for you, then you can reduce animation speed in optionals [BLCMM] [For weaklings]
  15.  I won't answer questions like 'How to enable badass rank', etc. I aslo don't welcome skill tree modifications and other stuff
  • This mod does not requires any DLC. However, many new guns and shields were created by using other DLC's.
  • This mod increases loading times to about 10-15 seconds (Because this mod is huge)
  • You can use BLCMM to change mod (Change Difficulty, turn off some Optional Changes)

  [About updates]

  1. Update 17.50 is released. Time to take a break.

[What does this mod do]
  • Makes slot machines many times better
  • Makes OP Levels more rewarding:
  •              They increase your chance to obtain Legendary or Pearl gear from any source
  •              Op levels which will affect it:
  •              Op 1, Op 3, Op 6, Op 8
  • Allows you to die a lot. 
  •               It's okay to die.
  •               It's fine if you die a lot, you'll just have to get used to it.
  •               In the end, you will die for sure in this mod.
  • Fixes game breaking glitches (PimpHab, Flakker + Ahab, Critical.A pre-stacking, ShamFleeting, item duplication in duel) 
  • Blocks up 98% of legendary drops until enemy level 49. 
  • However, some non-op legendaries can still be obtained. (Class mods, some grenade mods, some quest weapons)
  • You can obtain Legendaries when Enemies will have lvl 49
  •                 Do not try to farm legendary items if you don't know what you can obtain. You will only waste your time.
  •                If you want to know what you can obtain, then click here: Loot Drops
  •                 If you want to farm even more, then click here: Some loot drops list
  • Changes some enemies
  • Increases Animation Speed for most enemies
  • Removes badass rank bonuses. It also fixes 'Skilled'  players with 500% to everything
  • Adds more Chests to the game
  • Increases player respawn speed
  • Makes Digi-Peak many times harder
  • Allows you to Aim Down Sights while in FFYL (Salvador can't)
  • Allows "White Chests" to contain legendary items
  • Allows you to obtain Unique Weapons from Chests \ Vendors [Grog Nozzle, etc]
  • Almost removes Health Gate for Players. [It means Shotguns can 1shot you, you won't be immortal with Grog Nozzle, etc]
         ...But increases chances to obtain legendary items
  • Bosses will have more health. It means you should have good gear before attempting to kill |BossName|
  • Makes barrels less useless
  • Allows Golden Chest to be opened by Eridium
  • Allows any quest to contain anything [Up to a Legendary]
  • Adds more Legendary Guns and items to the game
  • Adds more Pearlescent Items to game (Shields, Class, Grenade mods)
  • Adds Rare Pearlescent and Legendary weapons
  • Adds Rarest Pearlescent weapons. Hard to find, but it's worth it!
  •            Pearl Weapons now have Tiers: Common > Uncommon > Rare > Very Rare > Rarest
  •            Until level 65 you can obtain only Common and Uncommon Pearl Weapons (Shields and Relics aren't locked)
  •            After 65 - Rare 
  •            After 70 - Very Rare
  •            And after lvl 73 (op1) - Rarest pearls.
  •            It's not that easy to obtain Rarest pearls. Chances aren't like 1\100, but still not that high.
  • Pearlescent Gear is the best gear in the game now
  • Enemies can perform melee attacks on you while you are down
  • Enemies will also forget about you when you will be down
  • Playable characters received unique buffs. See action skills for more info [In-game ofc]
  • Changes almost all skill trees

  • Changes how Corrosive DOT affects enemies
  • Allows Siren to phaselock almost everything
  • Buffs Vendors [Better gear]
  • Increases amount of enemies on some locations
  • Allows Son of Craw to drop Legendary and Pearl items
  • Makes Rakks dangerous, but allows them to drop many items if you are lucky
  • Allows to 'dismember' enemies [Disabled to avoid glitches with Phaselock]
  • And a lot of other changes...

How to use this mod? 

  1.  Check UCP page for installation guide: UCP page [nexus] <-- Click it  [You just have to see installation Guide for mods like UCP]
  2.  Extract files from archive to: steamapps\common\Borderlands 2\Binaries
  3.  Open BLCMM  [Optional step]
  4.  Manually open FFYL in BLCMM [Optional step]
  5.  Select Game Difficulty \ Optional Changes [Optional step]
  6.  Save FFYL (CTRL + S) [Optional step]
  7.  Enter game
  8.  When in Main Menu, wait around 10 seconds (Not Title screen with big vault logo) [Game will connect to the Shift]
  9.  Open Console
  10.  Type: Exec FFYL    (Literally Exec FFYL without .txt and stuff)   [If you don't have "Spark Keys" errors]
  11.  If you have "Spark Keys" errors, then type: exec FFYLOF   [Not recommended. Some changes won't be applied to the game in that case]
  12.  Play (and suffer)

Some "pro" tips for PT3:
  • Don't kill enemies, they can't drop anything, and you don't need xp anyway, right?
  • Don't look for chests, you don't need possible gear upgrades or even pearlescent items. pfff. Chests sucks. (Continues to play without good gear and suffers a lot)
  • When you can't kill any enemy with a Pointman class mod and middle tree as an Axton, then it is clearly a mod Author's fault. Not yours.
  • Don't try any new gear. If Harold was changed, then it is unusable anymore >:( (Uninstalls the mod and ragequits)
  • When you can't kill Raid Bosses with a pearl slag weapon or Mid-Game Legendary, then this mod is unbalanced and not fun >:(((((. You don't need strong weapons for raid bosses at all.  (Spoiler: you have to use matching element for your weapon, plus you have to know how to kill specific raid bosses. Don't be surprised when raid boss won't die at all)

Sometimes this mod can be too hard, especially in Digi-Peak area. This is why it is RECOMMENDED to be played in co-op
In solo mode you will probably suffer
You can even ragequit
Bosses will restore their hp, you will die over and over
Be ready for it if you are playing this mod in solo
You may not like some difficulty changes ['
Artifical Animation speed, 2hard4me, mod sucks >:(', can't kill enemies with white guns >:(], but it's up to you.
Some bosses can destroy you. [And force you to ragequit]
Make sure to be prepared with a good gear before going to a Willhelm as example.
This mod is
not designed for modifications in BLCMM.
But you can still select optional changes in '
Optional Changes' section [FT / BLCMM]
Recommended to play without other global mods (To avoid conflicts)
But if you decided to play with other mods [
I hope it's just QOL mods] - then put FFYLands last in mod order list.

Offtop 2:

This is not a modpack. It's a global mod.
This mod is named FFYLands because FFYLands is shortened from Fight For Your Life lands.
You will be in Fight for your life a lot.
Originally idea for Mod name came from my friend: "
call this mod FFYL simulator"

If you want to leave some feedback \ suggestions: then you can DM me in Discord: [Hemaxhu #7972] or simply join my Discord Server.

When you add me as a friend in Discord for some reason and doesn't wrote anything - don't expect me to tell you 'Hey what do you want?". I won't do that. 
Just tell me why you added me. And if there is no real reason, then sorry, but i'll remove you after some time.
