Hello. I am new to this site and was wondering if there was any place that provided unofficial support for the creation and optimization of mods for DoW2. If someone could either help me solve my problem or at least tell me where to look I would appreciate it. My problem is described below.
I wanted to go back through the single player campaign for DoW2 and DoW2CR and collect all of the rare items. I looked around the DoW2 forums and found that the drop rates could be changed through altering the tuning_info.rbf file using 2 programs, rbfconverter and sgareader. So far, so good. I can make orks and eldar drop items on command. The problem is that I am now drowning in common(White) items with rarer items dropping only a very small percentage of the time, especially for Eldar it seems. I almost spend more time policing my inventory and recycling common items to create space as I do playing missions.
Is there a way to alter the rarity of the wargear drops? For example, is there a way to change the drop ratio from something like:
90% Common(white)/ 5% Rare(green)/ 4% UltraRare(blue)/ 1% Legendary(red or gold)
10% Common(white)/ 50% Rare(green)/ 25% UltraRare(blue)/ 15% Legendary(red or gold)
or to just eliminate common drops completely? Another solution would be to somehow disable the auto-loot function at the end of the mission for only common items while still collecting everything else. A third solution would be a way to automatically drop all common wargear into the recycle bin.
My second issue is that the Tyranid drop rates don't seem to be altered by changing the chaff or swarm drop rates. Is there a reason for this or a workaround? This is much less of a concern than the wargrear rarity drop ratio, but is still something that I noticed.
