#FVModSync

A tool to install game mods for Life is Feudal: Forest Village. FVModSync enables users to organise their mods in a separate folder and copy them over automatically, rather than having to edit files in the game folder by hand. This ought to make it easier for players to use various different mods in parallel, at least until an official tool for this purpose is released. Also, it allows modders to include only the relevant data (i.e. content they have actually changed) in their mods, which improves compatibility between different mods.

v0.4beta, for game version 0.9.6112 (2017-03-15)

[Readme + Feedback auf Deutsch] (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/ForestVillageModding/discussions/0/144512875333095921/)

Note that script mods are handled differently again in 0.9.6112 -- most if not all script mods that existed prior will need an update. Check whether a mod is compatible with the current game version before attempting to install it.

Also, note that 0.9.6112 regards (Game Folder)/mods as the active mods folder now -- make sure your own Mods folder has a different name before proceeding.

Changelog

v0.4beta:

Mods
  • Change scripts.pak location for game version 0.9.6112

Life

Features

  • Parse content from multiple CSV snippets in modded files to a single target file in the game folder
  • When any CSV already exist in the game folder, use those to add new content to -- so users can still make manual changes if they wish (they will be preserved when new mods are added)
  • Parse entries from multiple mods to scripts/main.lua (so that script mods will be recognised)
  • Parse entries in config.lua and elements in XML schemes to their equivalent in game files
  • Copy all other modded files to the game folder as they are, taking the directory structure into account
  • Predictable overriding: sort mods alphanumerically, the last entry/file will override any conflicting entries/files
  • Warn users about override conflicts from modded CSV files in the console output
  • Warn users about malformed CSV (mismatching headers, wrong record length)
  • Ignore .txt/.TXT from mod folders so users can have readme files in there, as well as .zip (for backups)
  • Handle mod defaults by initialising them from a defaults folder
  • Sanitise mod folder names (remove arithmetic operators and whitespace so as to not confuse the game’s lua interpreter)

Requirements

  1. .NET Framework 3.5 or later required

  2. You need to create a Mods folder in your game files manually (ought to be Program Files/Steam/steamapps/common/Life is Feudal Forest Village), top level. The actual name of that folder is irrelevant, it’s only referred to as “Mods folder” here for sake of simplicity. Important: As of game version 0.9.6109 you cannot name your folder “mods” any more -- the game needs to have that reserved for its own use (hardcoded in scriptssystemnamespace.lua).

  3. You need to download and unzip quickbms in your Mods folder, in a sub-folder named “quickbms”. The life_is_feudal.bms script (rightclick > Save As) also needs to be in the quickbms folder. [1]

  4. Mods that you want to manage with FVModSync need to be installed in (Mods Folder)/mods (you can change that location in the configuration if you want, see below), and maintain the same directory structure and filenames that the game is using. [2]

[1] quickbms is needed to export the unmodded CSV data from the game .pak files, to “fill in the blanks” so to speak (i.e. when you have mods that only modify three lines of a CSV, this unmodified data is copied over for the rest so we don’t end up with incomplete files). FVModSync will automatically run quickbms when it needs to, so you don’t need to do anything except put it where FVModSync can find it.

[2] I believe it’s good practice to include author names in uploads, so that one can reliably distinguish between files from different creators. Downloaders can rename the top level folder, e.g. from pbox_nicemod to ugly-mod-by-random-person, but need to leave the rest of the directory structure ( = everything inside that top level folder) intact.

Installation

Download the zip and unzip its contents to your Mods folder, top level. This is what your Mods folder should look like:

MyMods

  • mods
    • thismod
    • thatmod
    • .
  • quickbms
    • life_is_feudal.bms
    • quickbms.exe
  • FVModSync.exe
  • FVModSync.exe.config
  • FVModSync_Configuration.xml (optional)
  • FVModSync_exportedFiles (will be created by FVModSync)
  • readme.md (optional)

How to use

  • Double click on the exe.

It will put up a console window and tell you what it’s doing; that window will remain open until you hit Enter (it’ll tell you that as well).

Configuration

You can customise some parameters, like the names of subfolders and how much console output you want, in FVModSync_Configuration.xml. GameVersion doesn’t do anything yet. If the file goes missing, FVModSync will use default values (the same that are in the original file).

Notes for modders

CSV parsing:

  • As of 0.2.1beta, you can have partial CSV in mods: include only those columns that you have edited; existing values will be preserved for all other columns
  • Additionally (also added in 0.2.1beta) you can use the escape sequence “fvms:ignore” for individual fields you want to be ignored ( = existing values will be preserved for those fields)
  • Header fields in modded game files must be left intact as of 0.2.1beta, otherwise FVModSync will ignore the entire file (since there wouldn’t be any way to tell which column is which)

Scripts:

  • As of 0.2.2beta, you can override individual entries in scripts/config.lua with a (Your mod)/scripts/config.lua snippet containing only your edits
  • All other scripts should go in (YourModFolder)/scripts/; everything that isn’t config.lua will be copied over to (Game Folder)/mods/(YourModFolder). FVModSync will also sanitize both the folder name and the include directive for Lua arithmetic operators (replacing them all with underscore, since their fancy new function will otherwise try to interpret them and fall over). You can still have subfolders in (YourModFolder)/scripts/; those will be maintained.
  • As of 0.3beta, the necessary include directives will be handled automatically, i.e. the directory your mod ends up in will be added to /scripts/main.lua as requireMod('YourModFolder') -- you do not need to add a separate include file.

XML:

  • As of 0.3beta, you can add your own imagesets to the XML schemes: put a version of the file you want (most likely GameLook1.scheme) with only the root element + the entry for your imageset in /gui/schemes. You can add other elements that way too (not sure if that would be useful).
  • Note that as of game version 0.9.6042, custom resources can now get their icons from custom imagesets (this is new in resParams.csv, “icon”). So it’s not necessary any more to add resource icons to GameLook1.imageset.
  • You can have several imagesets with the same name (e.g. “YourName.imageset” in several different mods); FVModSync will compile them into one. The latest modified version of the accompanying image file will overwrite the other instances.

Mod Defaults:

  • As of 0.3beta (scripts) / 0.3.1beta (prioritised lists), FVModSync maintains mod defaults: little frameworks that can be installed to make modding more flexible. For example, a default replacement for the “Worker.surviveUpdate” function that splits it up into smaller functions, so that those can be changed individually (instead of having to override the whole thing and thus clashing with every other mod that does the same). For functions/scripts this is technically no different from all other scripts, for lists it means FVModSync will check that the default is installed and then aggregate any new values into it (so the end result is a list compiled from all mods that modify it). This is useful e.g. for introducing new kinds of clothes, tools, drinks and so on (as opposed to adding new recipes for the existing ones).
  • Note that the default lists are parsed like text, line by line. This is a bit basic but since they have no index, I’d like to keep the splitting as simple as possible (and not introduce CSV-style pomp and circumstance here).

General:

  • Mods should only include data that you have edited -- no unchanged game content. Having unchanged game content in your mod means you’re prone to override somebody else’s mod with the original, thus effectively breaking their mod (or vice versa).
  • Mods should be distributed in a folder that is equivalent to the game root folder, using the same directory structure as the game. (Mod Folder)/mods/coolmod/cfg/funky/things.csv will be copied to (Game Folder)/cfg/funky/things.csv, for example; a script from /mods/coolmod/scripts/funscript.lua will be in (Game Folder)/mods/coolmod/funscript.lua.
  • FVModSync sorts all modded files alphanumerically (culture independent) before it starts to copy; the sorting incudes the entire file path from (YourModFolder) downwards ((YourModFolder) = the one that you distribute, like “pbox_nicemod”). This means the load order is predictable and can be used to deliberately override things (the last mod that loads will override the rest); be aware though that users may change the name of your root folder.
  • FVModSync will ignore any .txt/.TXT files it finds in mod folders, so you can include readme files and the like as .txt. As a precaution, I recommend you include the word “readme” in your file name -- right now the game does not seem to use any .txt of its own, but if it ever does, I would filter out “readme” instead of “.txt”.
  • It will ignore .zip too in case that is useful for something (other than end users being able to backup their mods that way)

Known Issues

  • CSV exceptions: Right now this does not handle the following files:

    • cfgLOD.csv
    • cfgnames.csv
    • cfgtips.csv

This is because those have multiple entries with identical “names” (fields in the first column), we can’t tell how the game distinguishes them, and we don’t want to guess. So if you have or create mods that edit those files, you will need to move/copy them manually. Let me know if there is a need to deal with those.

  • FVModSync will create a folder named “FVModSync_exportedFiles” in your game files, which contains various files exported from the game packages. You can delete it if it bothers you, but it’ll reappear next time you run the program. If you empty any of the subfolders (but leave the actual folder intact), FVModSync will currently get a bit stuck, so don’t do that.

  • When you patch the game, delete FVModSync_exportedFiles and let FVModSync regenerate it from the patched game files (it will do that automatically). Forgetting to do so may lead to missing strings and the like, since it will continue to use those (now outdated) files.

  • FVModSync will copy anything that is in (Mods folder)/mods except txt and zip. Far as I can tell, the game just ignores files that are not referenced anywhere, so it shouldn’t hurt anything -- still, it is probably better not to dump random files into that folder.

Troubleshooting / Feedback

  • You can post in Issues or in the Feedback thread in the Forest Village modding group on Steam.

  • If you run into issues, the text from the console window may be helpful to figure out the problem: you can copy it with Edit > Select All; Edit > Copy via the context menu (rightclick) on the title bar. The game dumps a log in (Game Folder)/Log.log that is also often quite useful.

  • FVModSync creates a backup of files that already exist in the game folder when it attempts to copy over a modded file (e.g. cfg/Localization.csv.backup). Those are simply renamed, so in order to revert them, just remove the “.backup” suffix.

  • If you have all your mods installed with FVModSync, and then something goes wrong, reinstalling them should be quite simple: remove all the cfg/gui/scripts/etc folders (those that have the same name as a .pak) from your game folder, and then run FVModSync.exe for a fresh install of all mods from (Mods folder)/mods. Of course if you have made additional manual edits, you need to re-do those.
