Download ModManager
Note: Many people are reporting problems with the "DAI Tools Suite Loader", so use the direct link from:  http://daimodder.tumblr.com/post/128958896369/modmanager-59-available.

How to use
In ModManager, click the mod's name, click the Configure button, drag the bottom edge of the window down, configure, click save, merge.

Please note, some staff heads will disappear when you add grips/blades to them. This is a known issue with the game and seems to be related to the fact that many staves are one-piecers. It is probably the reason that many weapons come with no upgrade slot by default. THIS IS NOT A BUG IN MY MOD. 
If in doubt, use Please use Sapphim's image (below) for appearance numerical reference on the menu. -as you can see, the one-piecers are on the left, these are the ones that have problems with upgrades.
Where it says "onehanded" or "twohanded" it means one-piece, i.e. will cause graphics clipping/covering if you attach another upgrade to it.

-The new schematic will be in the crafting category of the item you've chosen.
-The schematic won't automatically move to the top of the column as in previous mods, you'll have to fish about for it in the list. This is because I didn't change the level of the schematic - this is because... I wanted the mod to do as much automatically as possible - I didn't want to make a list of offsets.
It's possible that I will revise this mod, creating an array of offsets for level and damage type. Tirnoney would want me to do a Dictionary.

Merging twice causes ModManager to throw an error.
I don't know why, but this just happens. Sorry. You need to restart ModManager each time you want to merge. That's why it's advisable to follow the instructions in the HOW TO SAVE YOUR CHOICES section at the bottom of this description page.

Version 1 still contains my debug logging. Please ignore that spam in the "Merging" box.

Multiple Abilities Quirk
The game applies the ability to your character when you equip the item and removes the ability when you unequip the item.
That's WHY it's important to UNEQUIP the item before doing a re-merge.

If an ability gets stuck on your character, one way to remove it is to make a new item with the ability on it, equip and unequip it.

i.e, if Permafrost gets stuck, 
run ModManager and make another item with the Permafrost as the ability,
create the item in the game,
equip and uneuip the item,
the ability should be gone.

Greyed Out Button
You must use at least two different material types!

I want to thank everybody involved with the Mod Manager and Mod Maker projects, especially WarrantyVoider, Galaxy/Eham, Zhentar, Dawnless Sky, Chrono414,
Tirnoney, esCanor, Dheuster and VoidRealms for their tutorials, without which I couldn't have done any DAI modding.
Tirnoney again for extra advice and help.

How to save your choices:
Get Notepad++ from here: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download (DO NOT USE NORMAL NOTEPAD, it will break the mod)
Open the daimod in Notepad++

* If you search for this: 
public void ConstructUI(ModConfigElementsList ConfigElementsList)
The next line is where the menu begins.

* As you can see, the menu text is in the middle of the line, that's exactly what appears on the menu. You are literally changing the menu here. read that to see what you're changing - if you want to change what the menu says, you can, just make sure the inverted commas remain.

* The number at the end of each line is different depending on what you have to input, like this;
• For the ones where there is a dropdown list, the number at the end of the line is the item number on the dropdown list. Example;
ConfigElementsList.AddEnumElement ( "appe","Appearance ", typeof(Appearance), 55);
55 is the menu item on the Appearance menu dropdown ... Which is _55_Greataxe_The_Dancers_Axe.

• If you have to input a value between 1 and 99, the value at the end of the line is xx, 1, 99 - don't change that, but DO change the xx (you need to be between the other two numbers - the game won't let you craft it if you put over 99, the Craft button greys out).
ConfigElementsList.AddIntElement( "SOS", "Slot 1 Size", 5, 1, 99); 
The numbers at the end of the line are what you are looking for (highlighted in bright green), here 5 is the default, 1 is min, 99 is max.

• If you have to input a Material, use 0 = Cloth / 1 = Leather / 2 = metaaaaaaaaaal \m/
ConfigElementsList.AddEnumElement( "STM", "Slot 2 Material",typeof(Material), 

• If you have to input a Slot Type, use 0 = Offense / 1 = Utility.
ConfigElementsList.AddEnumElement( "STT", "Slot 2 Type ",typeof(Slottype), 0);
