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

1.55 Changes (Final Version)

Vanilla+ 1.55 changes:


- Lowered drop rates for Runes Fal-Zod and unique, set, rare items (The old drop rates are available as optional file)
If you are going to install this update by overwriting the old files, you need to also delete the old itemratio.txt. I recommend a clean install, like usual.

- Added larzuks hammer back (they are much rarer than before)
- Socketing crafting recipes now require the item + larzuk hammer. Read the ingame menu for updated recipes. Essentially Larzuk hammer now does exactly what larzuk quest reward does.
- Duriel no longer drops all 4 essences
- Removed knockback from set items and replaced it with a different stat (bulkathos sword and creglaw gloves)
- Shrines can not stack anymore and they also get removed when u are cursed (back to vanilla) their duration is still increased.
- Experience gain is returned back to vanilla values
- Lowered drop rate of rejuvanation potions
- Thunderstorm proc rate returned to vanilla speed, but its damage is increased by 300%
- Lowered the volume of valkyrie sounds
- Removed perfect gem drops from nightmare


Bug fixes:
- Teeth min/max damage swapped
- Selling Light crossbow could spawn uber diablo event
- Fixed cube recipe for ethereal indestructible unique
- Added a 10 second cooldown to telepo- naw just kidding


Trading:

This update lowers item drop rates considerably. There is now an optional file for those who prefer high drop rates.
Because of that, you may want to trade for items you can't find yourself now.
There are now trading channels on my discord. Here you can exchange your save files with eachother to trade items.
The full details can be read on discord.


IF you are updating from version 1.47 - 1.52 : you MUST read this: (new users can ignore this)

How to install new update:
1. Make a backup of your save files.

2. Delete old version of the mod first before installing new update (It is
possible some files will remain that are no longer used, possibly
causing issues)
3. After that make sure you installed expanded inventory, and other mods you have. If you start the game without
expanded inventory if you had that first, you WILL lose the items in the expanded part of inventory.

3. Inside the same location is a folder called Mods, and inside is another called Zander. Paste the save files in the Zander folder

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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Mods and Online Play
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
THIS MOD DOES NOT WORK IN MULTIPLAYER

It is unlikely but possible you may receive a ban if you try and play online with this mod installed.

This mod only changes basic files that Blizzard intend for you to be able to edit. (Blizzard even provided a complete modding guide with explanation of what everything does)
