Unlock Powerstones

Unlock Powerstones

This mod unlocks powerstones for all users on the server, according to an INI configuration. Without the INI configuration, the mod does nothing.

This mod was developed for a small private server with only 3 "PVE" islands. It allows us to pre-unlock all missing powerstones from our grid, for the Kraken.

Please test before putting on a live server!

The mod is stackable and does not modify any existing settings.

MOD ID: 1723577244


The following example is what we use on our server. It must be added to GameUserSettings.ini for every tile in the grid.

We have the following powerstone islands and one trench:

Cay_C_EE_PVE (PowerStoneIndex 2)
Mnt_Y_EU_PVE (PowerStoneIndex 4)
Mnt_R_CH_PVE (PowerStoneIndex 6)
Trench_B (PowerStoneIndex 0)

The following configuration allows us to unlock all of the missing powerstones (indices 0,1,3,5,7 and 8 for powerstones, and indices 1 though 8 for essences). The entries UnlockPowerStone entries refer to the "PowerStoneIndex" in the IslandInstanceCustomDatas1/IslandInstanceCustomDatas2 settings. The UnlockSecondaryStone entries refer to essences, normally found in trenches and are used to unlock the hard mode Kraken (not tested yet)

NOTE: To get the essences defined in the INI, you must have unlocked all powerstones (normally or INI defined), and then you must die and respawn. There seems to be game code preventing the allocation of the essences without these prerequisites.

Is there a way to use this mod to unlock all essences by using 1 trench? I have all the PSI and powerstones set up in my 2x2 but can only fit 1 trench in and only able to collect 1 essence so far.

This unlocks the ice dungeon by default is there a way to disable that?

Does this work in single player? Can anyone explain how to get it to work if it DOES work in singleplayer?

@Upperking Sorry for the delay, for whatever reason I don't get notified on comments. The point is not to have all 9 powerstones, so if you set up a map with 3 powerstone islands and 1 trench with essence, you unlock all the ones you don't have on the map with the INI as indicated in the description. I highly suggest you look at tutorials on how to make maps with powerstone islands and trenches, and the description will be more clear once you understand how the powerindexes are used.

I’m really confused how this works do you have to set up your power stones all nine of them at first then add this or do you just set up the four power stones only in the code and what about the trench do you put that where the mall area is I’m really confused

It doen not appear so for the essence we have set for the mod to unlock. We are going to run a kraken and see what happens. lol we are assuming we just head to the trench and collect the 3 remaining essence we need and then spawn in a hard mode kraken. Regardless this mod as been wonderful. We were able to update our map on our 3x3 and removed 6 powerstone islands and trenches.

@LowPaidNurse13 Ok, so no Kraken required then.

Once getting all 9 powerstones and respawning it gave me the 6 essences we have for the mod to unlock. So so far so good lol

@LowPaidNurse13 I did look into it, and it's a bit convoluted but they do check if you have all powerstones before granting the essences. My code which calls this only runs once the first time you spawn after a server restart or you die/respawn. AFAIK the Kraken counts as a powerstone when you defeat it. What this all means is that you will probably need to die/respawn after defeating the Kraken to get the essences.

Andargor I apologize and must correct myself. On our test server we set it to unlock all powerstones and essences. A die and respawn was all that was required. We made it go live on our server last night and a die and respawn gave us the 6 powerstones we have set. We are assuming that once we get the other 3 powerstones the essence will unlock? or is it after you defeat the first kraken?
