Getting started with this mod

NPC Adventures is not a framework!

Really, this mod ia not a framework. It's fully content mod with strong gameplay mechanics and it supports content packs to enhance companions with your custom NPC companions. It doesn't mean it's framework. This mod is only extensible (moddable) mod.

Current Features~

  • Ask recruitable NPC's to follow you (5 hearts or more required.)
  • Recruitable NPC’s can now ask if they can join you (7 hearts or more required, configurable.)
  • Dismiss your follower at any time. They will leave on their own when it gets too late.
  • Recruited followers have unique dialogue in different locations (WIP)
  • All recruited followers can fight with you (with their own swords and fighting skills!)
  • You can transfer items from your inventory anytime to your currently recruited follower.
  • If you forget your items, or your follower leaves before you can reclaim them, they will be returned to you the next day.
  • Support for content packs and localizations. You can add any custom NPC as a companion with a content pack! (see how to create content pack on wiki, or content pack list for download content packs.)
  • Custom user configuration (via config.json, see SMAPI docs
  • Changeable/prosthetic buffs for Maru (hold G to change buff)
  • All followers have idle animations as well as speech bubbles while fighting!
  • Companion events for some companions! (triggered during adventuring with recruited companion)
  • Based on Quest Framework

Followers have unique personal skills, currently implemented: warrior, fighter, doctor, forager and scared.

  • Doctors can fight with swords and also heal you if your health is under 30%. They can also try to save you before you collapse.
  • Warriors do more damage to monsters and are able to fight with swords and use critical defense fists in combat. They can also upgrade their swords.
  • Foragers can forage and occasionally share their findings with you.
  • Scared can be scared, screech and jump away when they see a monster, but don't worry, they can still fight (if they have a fighter skill). Mostly this "negative" skill is compensated by more powerful buffs.
  • Fighters are less powerful than warriors. They can level up and sync with player, and can upgrade their swords. It's a secondary skill, in most cases is assigned with any other skill.
  • Spirituals can send some peace&love for monsters with their spiritual emergy and make them peaceful. Loved monsters will not attack you for limited time.
  • Fisherman can fish with fishing rod and share caught fishes with you.
