Adding Skills

  1. I've been playing with the xml files for Dredmor and have done a little modding (mainly with items). I was curious if I could add a new skill and how I would go about doing it. Thanks in advance!

    It's actually pretty simple. Here's the general procedure

    1) Open up the skillDB.xml file in the game folder.
    1a) If the skill you're planning to add is a spell, you're probably going to want to make a new spell in the spellDB.xml.
    2) Scroll down, and you should be able to find code segments for what each skill is.
    3) Copy the skill code segment, and edit out the necessary parts. The language used for the databases is fairly straightforward, so you shouldn't have much trouble with that.

    And that's that.
