About this mod

Game difficulty tweaks and slower levelling.

Permissions and credits
Description: This is a spiritual successor to the original Level Scaling Mod which aimed to fix the game being too easy when released. However, it was unreliable and with the changes introduced in patch v1.1.0 adjusting level scaling table has become redundant as a means of increasing (or decreasing) game difficulty. Now there are better ways.   

While I think that it's still to early to make difficulty mods (and in the end, they might not be even needed given that Obsidian did pretty good job fixing the difficulty issues and PotD seems to be the real deal now), I am trying to tweak PotD settings here and there while playing seeing if it does improve my gaming experience. If those changes prove to work out OK for me, I'll share them here. My philosophy is to avoid sweeping changes just for the sake of it - I rather make small iterations and properly test them to see how they fit.

Game version compatibility:
Difficulty Tweaks mod (cheat):
  1. The 1st iteration of the mod decreases enemy accuracy and defense values on PotD (from 15 to 9). This is to adress the huge nerf bat across the game and to slightly improve the early game experience (currently tested from level 1 to level 10). Also handy when using the slower leveling mod - now being underleveled on PotD quite hurts. 

XP Tweak mod:
  1. Leveling slower by 25 %. 

General info:
  1. New game not required.
  2. Does not break achievements.

How to install:
  1. Go to Pillars 2 folder (e.g. Pillars of Eternity II\PillarsOfEternityII_Data\) 
  2. Create "override" folder in Pillars of Eternity II\PillarsOfEternityII_Data\
  3. Unzip the mod(s) to the created /override folder.
  4. Remove any folders with previous version of the mod from override folder.
  5. Run the game.

How to uninstall:
  1. Delete the folder DifficultyTweaks from override folder in /PillarsOfEternity2_Data/.
  2. Delete the folder XPTweak from override folder in /PillarsOfEternity2_Data/.

Compatibility with other mods:
  1. The DifficultyTweaks Mod is not compatible with any mods to CharacterStatsSettingsComponent in global.gamedatabundle.   
  2. The XPTweak_0.75 Mod is not compatible with any mods to Game.GameData.ExperienceTableGameData objects in global.gamedatabundle.  

The following is a complete list of XPTweak_0.75 Mod's tweaks:
