    Hi guys, author of the mod here. Please read this message before posting or messaging me :)

    Really nice to hear that you're all concerned about the future of this mod (so many messages!) so I figured I'd make a post to explain the situation. Modding the game is really difficult at the moment for a number of reasons.

    Tools to extract the files that the game reads (like the shop lists) are very experimental for now due to Capcom encrypting the chunk files that the game uses. Fortunately, I've been able to get a hold of the shopList files that Iceborne uses, and at first glance it should be trivial to update the mod for Iceborne, as the format is mostly the same with a few minor changes that have been applied to most files in Iceborne.

    However, Capcom has disabled the loading of anything but models and textures from nativePC, which means that modding as we know it at the moment cannot work. The game simply ignores any files that are placed in nativePC, so even if I could update the mod for Iceborne, the game wouldn't load the mod. Note that regardless of whether or not you have the actual Iceborne DLC, the Iceborne game update received by everyone still has these changes, so modding still won't work for you.

    At the moment, I'm waiting for the brilliant researchers over at the MHW modding Discord to get the lay of the situation and come up with a solution. Until then, unfortunately this mod won't function. I can't give an ETA because I really don't know how long these things will take to work around.

    Just know that I'm trying my best, as are the wonderful people on the Discord, to get modding back for Iceborne. I'll keep you all posted. If you have any questions, drop them down below and I'll give them a look over and add any salient answers to this post.

    - Elliott

      >However, Capcom has disabled the loading of *almost every file* from nativePC

      Texture and model replacements still work, just not anything else

      Updated the post so it's 100% clear

      Honestly, it's pretty awesome! I bought it on PS4 too but kinda gave up for a few reasons (my own time constraints, low FPS, lack of mod support) so I'm planning on getting into it properly on PC.

      Thank you for the communication! I knew it would take time, especially since most modders are working on their free time, but it's nice to know what's going on.

      No worries, take your time, we understand you have to work around what the game allows and have no control over what it does and does not load.We will look forward to when you can get the mod running, and in the mean time thank you for communicating the issues and not just leaving us in the dark.

      @JKKingOfChaos,
      Unless I'm mistaken, the game has been updated whether or not you own Iceborne.
      There's ways to force Steam to download an older version of a game, however:
      - It's possible his save won't work if he already launched the game post-Iceborne udpate
      - it's also possible he won't be able to log in

      The mod author isn't bypassing any restrictions. Like I said, the game still reads textures and models from nativePC and the light pillar mod is essentially just a model swap mod

      I'm going to start removing any comments which just ask for me to update the mod to Iceborne as there's a ton of them down below that people can read that probably cover whatever you want to say in your comment, and this big PSA should answer everyone's questions. Hope that's cool with everyone

      I put 1300 hours into Ice-borne while playing on PS4PRO with Samsung 860PRO SSD. The game runs 1080P targeting 60FPS. Lack of Mods did not stop me from having so much fun. Now I'm replaying entire game from scratch on PC at 4K 60FPS max settings. I <3 MHW

      Hey champ, love your work. Here is a link to a mod that allows you people to use the NativePC file again. Maybe this can help you, I've seen a mod similar to this up and running using this.

    Seems this mod itself needs updated as it conflicts with Strackers loader itself, which is needed to run this mod now since iceborne's update. I'm playing a mod that does the same thing as this mod does but its in iceborne. Every other mod is working except for this mod as I spent 6 hours messing around trying to figure out where the problem was. I believe completely this mod is in need of an update. Its the only mod not working among many I've tried with and without. I hope this helps.

    I am getting the blackscreen when trying to start the game with this installed as well. Tried it with the default "page" and then page 2 installed. While waiting for this to be updated, look for the mod "Farmable useful item". It might have items you need.
