Game Balance - ValueMods

Value Modifications (or ValueMods) can be applied to items or classes to grant players buffs of various kinds to that item, or just whenever they have that item or class equipped.

Setting Value Mods#

An object can have a list of ValueMods applied to it. Setting the ValueMods for an item/class implies replacing whatever ValueMods were applied to it in the unmodded game. Therefore, if you want to extend the ValueMods applied but keep existing ones, you will have to make use of the provided getter functions to retrieve the original mods before overwriting.

In the below function definitions, T is the type of the value for the ValueMod in that pair, which could be a float, integer, boolean or string depending on the mod.

To set the ValueMods for an item:

Items.setValueMods(class: string, itemName: string, mods: List<(ValueMod, T)>)

To get the ValueMods for an item:

Items.getValueMods(class: string, itemName: string): List<(ValueMod, T)>

ValueMods may also be applied to classes, like the OOTB "Light", "Medium" and "Heavy, or the pre-OOTB classes like "Pathfinder", "Sentinel" or "Brute". To set the ValueMods for a class:

Classes.setValueMods(class: string, mods: List<(ValueMod, T)>)

To get the ValueMods for a class:

Classes.getValueMods(class: string): List<(ValueMod, T)>


In the below example, the Light Assault Rifle is modified such that when equipped, the player will be given the Rage perk. In addition, whenever the player has the Brute armor class, they will have the SuperHeavy perk.

Items.setValueMods("Light", "Light Assault Rifle", {
{ValueMods.Rage, true},
{ValueMods.RageTime, 15},
{ValueMods.RageEnergyRegen, 100},
{ValueMods.RageMassChange, -0.2},
{ValueMods.RageHealthRestoration, 0.5},
Classes.setValueMods("Brute", {
{ValueMods.MassBuff, 0.8},
{ValueMods.SuperHeavy, true},

Available ValueMods#

Below is the list of available value mods. All ValueMods fall under the ValueMods namespace, so for instance you could refernce one with ValueMods.Rage.

Perk Effects#

The ValueMods listed below are those that correspond to particular perks which existed pre-OOTB. Some are listed twice.

A listing of the values of ValueMods for pre-OOTB perks can be found in the tamods-gotylike preset.
