    I think it works for any armor. I'm pretty sure I've seen it used on helms and rings.

    Maybe a little late, but I'm on this. Time to create a mod that seriously dicks with a bunch of starting equipment.

    I don't like this new feature; it'll make it harder to use lots of mods together.

    Ok, just testing it. Sorry for the delay, I really hadn't time for anything.
    This code
    Code:
    <itemDB>
    
    <item name="Wooden Sword" convert="1">
        <price amount="40000"/>
        <weapon crushing="2" existential="20"/>
        <description text="This wooden sword is alarmingly undeadly. Or maybe, it's just what it wants you to know."/>
        </item>
    </itemDB>
    seems to does not function, anyway.

    Even without price and description lines, it doesn't convert items.
    Am I making syntax errors here?

    By the way, I've also tried Nicholas leather armor change. It doesn't work either.
    Maybe I'm missing something... I've made this custom mod with only the main folder, a "mod" folder, and inside that I've put mod.xml and itemdb.xml.

    Then don't use total conversion mods.

    There is no more beta, and obviously yes.

    I've been unsuccessful at getting this to work as well. I am opted into the betas, though this shouldn't matter anymore. Is anyone having success and could post it?

    I really want to convert the character to The Dr not sure which one yet but once i get the hang of moding DoD I'm doing a Dr who mod but i don't want to go to the trouble of making a hole new character unless i can be sure it will be supported.

    The hero sprites use the old .spr format so you'll need to use this. http://dredmod.com/wiki/ConvertSprites
    They can be found at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Dungeons of Dredmor\sprites\hero on Windows.

    ...Note that it's not currently possible to mod in new main character sprites, only replace them. And I've no idea how anyone would go about writing over the original SPRs.

    So, still no shown support on this feature, added in the wild and never looked at again?
