Quick info about simple modding, as all of the game assets are currently exposed and easy to edit.
I came across this after looking at a negative review for the game that complained about the in-game time passing to quickly for their liking. So I took a look at the game files and found that this (among other things) are easily configurable.
2. Right click on the file and open it in your preferred editor. Something like Notepad++ is ideal, but opening in the standard Windows Notepad will also work.
3. Don’t worry about the XML syntax if you are not familiar with it, although it’s quite simple and easy to learn, we’re just going to be making a very simple edit. First, locate the key SECONDS_IN_HOUR_GAMETIME (ctrl + F to search — although it should be near the top of the file).
4. A few lines underneath the line
you should find
which is the value for that configuration key.
This means, by default, one in-game hour passes in 48 seconds. Change this value (48) to whatever number best suits your play style. Personally, I like 60 seconds per hour, so one second is equivalent to one in-game minute, but you can use any positive, whole number you like.
5. Save the file (ctrl + S), close the editor, and launch Kynseed. Even when loading an existing save file, you should notice that the in-game time now moves at the rate you specified in the XML file.
Anything in these configuration files within the Data folder should be able to be modified in the same manner as the directions above. But since this isn’t an extensive modding guide (nor do I have enough knowledge of the game to provide such a thing), I’ll leave it to those who want to investigate what else they can change to their liking and/or release their own thorough modding guide.
Hope that helped!
