About this mod

An essential QoL mod for all multiplayer hunters. Adds important NPCs to the gathering hub, so you don't have to constantly leave for crafting and facility management.

Permissions and credits
Monster Hunter: World - Extra NPCs in Astera Gathering Hub (Iceborne) v0.8
Mod by MHVuze

Adds the following NPCs to the gathering hub: Vendor Smithy, Resource Center, Sailor (Botanist + Argosy), Tailraider Safari, Elder Melder, Researcher.
Client-side mod, others don't see the newly added NPCs if they don't use the mod as well. However, it works fine for you (other players will simply see you talking to ghosts).

Please refrain from speaking to these NPCs in the hub to advance story quests or big event DLC (like Witcher). I have linked all scripts but just avoid it to be safe. If you mess up your save and have no backups as you should, that's completely on you.

Known issues
  • Capcom killed Melder Granny, she doesn't provide her services in any hub (not Seliana either). I left here there in case a fix is found.
  • According to a report, you can go out of bounds if you talk to the Tailraider Safari NPC if you stand between her and the ship ledge.

Use at your own risk! Play in offline mode if you fear a ban or whatever.

0. Install Stracker's Loader
1. Move the nativePC folder from the downloaded archive to your install dir (i.e. D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Monster Hunter World)
2. Profit

To get rid of the mod, just remove the nativePC folder. Or, if you have other mods installed, remove the files of this mod to keep the other mods intact.

If you downloaded this mod from anywhere but NexusMods, be wary of malicious modifications.

Thanks to Dave uRrr for his incredibly useful SOBJ template for 010 Editor, HelloWorld for his overlay that makes coordinate finding a breeze and Stracker for his nativePC loader!

Base game version acknowledgements: Thanks to hex for testing and Squall8 for making coordinate finding much easier.
