Marsarah Mod v2.5.91

The purpose of this mod is to make Valheim feel less grindy in general and to add interesting features to the game. This is mostly intended for subsequent playthroughs, as I recommend the vanilla experience for a first playthrough.

Short description: 
● Adds the following info to HUD: 
  - time of day, smart biome text indicator, inventory weight, enemy detector, boat speed
  - HUD toggleable with the Insert key
● Reduces the amount of resources needed to craft or upgrade gear, as well as some build pieces. Most of the resource reductions for gear are made for metal. 
● Some items have their required resource types changed to match the biome they are in. For example, a Silver Sword will not require Iron anymore, but Obsidian. 
● Double bronze crafting
● Iron age back piece with poison resist
● Heavy armor speed penalties removed. Light armor speed buffs
● Battleaxe and Shield speed penalties reduced
● Shorter Forsaken powers cooldowns and longer durations
● Lighter metal weight
● Faster character walk speed
● Larger pickup area
● No skill level down when dying
● Wet effect duration reduced
● Larger explore radius on boat
● Overall less stamina usage
● Better loadscreen tips

=====Details======
=================

The mod is split in sections which can be enabled/disabled individually in the config file (all are enabled by default). This file is created automatically when the game is run with the mod installed for the first time.

[Main Mod] 
● Toggles the entire mod on or off.

[Cheaper Gear Recipes]
● Reduces the amount of resources needed to craft or upgrade gear, especially for metal. This does not modify the type of resources needed, just the amount.
● Most metal resource requirements are reduced to half (for the majority of items). 
● Other non-metal resource amounts are either increased or decreased where needed for the sake of balance.
● Specific changes can be found in the readme file in the Docs section.

[Double Bronze Crafting]
● Outputs double the amount of Bronze when smelting Copper and Tin at a Forge. 

[Alternate Gear Recipes]
● Changes some gear material requirements for crafting or upgrading to match the biome the item comes from. Thus a player will not need to be pushed back to the previous biome to get the required material to craft it.
● Specific changes can be found in the readme file in the Docs section.

[Alternate Linen & Lox Cape]
● Moves the Linen Cape from the Plains biome to the Swamp biome.
● Adds poison resistance to the Linen and Lox capes
● Specific changes can be found in the readme file in the Docs section.

[Alternate Gear Speed Modifiers]
● Changes speed modifiers on gear as follows:
  - All metal chest and leg pieces have their speed penalty removed (from -5% each)
  - Troll chest and leg pieces now have a 5% speed modifier increase each
  - Root armor chest and leg pieces now have a 3% speed modifier increase each
  - Fenris Set pieces now have a 5% speed modifier increase each (from 3% each)

  - Darkwood Gate: Iron --> Black Metal

[Larger Item Pickup Area]

[No Skills Level Down Upon Death]
● Skills will no longer drop in level when dying. However, the progress towards the next level for each skill will still drop. For example, if a player has level 17 in the Swords skill and 30% progress in it towards the next level, when the player dies, the percentage progress will drop, but the main level will not go below 17.
