Thanks for checking out my singleplayer overhaul of Diablo II Resurrected

This mod is an enhanced and improved Vanilla Diablo II experience, it adds lots of new features and improvements to the base Diablo II game that we all know, such as: Improved loot, monster density, crafting recipes, quality of life features, and much more! It does this all in a way that tries to stay true to the original vision of Blizzard North!

A big part of why we all come back again and again to Diablo, and other games in this genre, is the rush and excitement when you find that really rare and powerful item. I am sure many of you have memories of dropping your first Stone of Jordan, or crafting your first Enigma.

Unfortunately Vanilla Diablo II has ridiculous low drop rates for items, and a bit *too* much randomization in its itemization. This means you could be playing for tens of thousands of hours to find that dream item you've always wanted.

I do not want to take that good feeling of finding that really powerful and rare item away by showering you in them constantly like some other mods have done in the past. In Vanilla Plus, powerful unique items are still rare. High runes are still rare. But everything is now obtainable by a single player :D

Some of the biggest features of this mod so far:
- Reworked loot tables for higher chance to get something good, but it's not raining drops
- Reworked affixes to Diablo 3 system: Low level affixes do not appear on high level items
- Increased minimum stat range on unique items, runewords and affixes so it's easier to get the best version of an item
- Many new lore friendly crafting recipes
- Melee splash damage
- Tons of quality of life changes

Compatibility
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This mod is not compatible with any mod that changes the same files.
If you want to install multiple mods I recommend to use this mod as a base. First extract all files of this mod in a new location and then copy the other mod over it. If it asks to overwrite a file it means it won't be compatible and you will either have to a) make your own compatible file, or b) ask on my mod page or the other mod page for a compatible file.

This mod changes many commonly edited files so it's likely most mods will not be compatible without some sort of patch.
