change item weight

Recommended Posts

Is there a file I can edit to easily change the weight of items? The back-and-forth is just a complete waste of time. I could also cheat more strength but that'd impact actual gameplay aspects.

 

more specifically I'm currently playing GeneForge 3

Look for "it_weight".

I suggest just changing everything to 1.

Playing as a Shaper, I've cheated more strength. Not a crazy amount mind you, a 10-12 or something. I still have problems carrying too much but the game was built with that limitation in mind, I think. 

 

Changing everything to 1 would also make coins weight that much perhaps, and potions and stackables etc. Also, it would make the choice between armors meaningless.

Coins do weigh 1.

Since they aren't stored in your inventory, it doesn't add anything to your weight. I would suggest making things weigh 0, but that could potentially cause problems.

Well, if you don't want to worry with weight at all, perhaps make everything weigh 0.1 like the potions

Weight is an integer value. The amount in the definitions file is a tenth of a pound. That is, an item which has "it_weight = 1" will weigh 0.1 pounds.

I changed everything to 1 which is a relief. It makes the game a lot more enjoyable for me. I can just haul everything with me :D

Kind of a shame there's no junk bag in any of the Geneforge games. Would've made things so much easier. Oh well. XD

Truth be told, some of the items in the game weigh way more than they should, at least IMO. I never hesitate to either 1) Make my character have more strength so they can carry more, or 2) Make the items weigh less when it makes sense. XD
