The first ever level expansion mod for Spyro Reignited Trilogy PC version is now complete! Features include: -retro graphics -new sections of the Artisans homeworld to explore -custom collectibles that STAY collected upon reloading the game -reward for collecting all 7 dragonfly eggs -simple custom NPCs (no voice acting or anything cuz I'm too lazy) -the dragons remain in the homeworld once they've been freed -enemies given unique skins to match the Artisans aesthetic -Artisans skatepark complete with a basic but fully functional minigame! -day/night cycle I have made absolutely certain that this mod will NOT corrupt your save file like other level mods can (sadly this also means no gems but what can ya do).
The General Mesh Swaps A and B paks. These will replace various meshes with low poly versions and are required for every feature in the Artisans Acres level pak to work correctly.
This mod was created by Bunn on the "Mod the Dragon" Discord server.
The models for Tomas, Argus, Delbin, and Delbin's props were made by Azureinferno on the modding Discord.

I have tested this mod extensively and it will NOT corrupt your save file in any way. The save system for my custom collectables uses its own, totally seperate files from the base game's.
-go to Windows(C:) > Program Files (x86) > Steam > steamapps > common > Spyro Reignited Trilogy > Falcon > Content > Paks
-inside this Paks folder, create a new folder called ~mods
-drop all the mod pak files into the ~mods folder. You MUST have the LEVEL, GENERAL MESH SWAPS A, AND GENERAL MESH SWAPS B paks all together or else things will break. The Low Poly Spyro and Sparx mods made by Frankly and Ghostie also come highly recommended.
-DO NOT move pakchunks0, 1, and 2! Those contain the base game!
-if you have two mods replacing the same files, the one lower down alphabetically in the folder will be applied. Files from this mod may interfere with files from other mods or vice versa
-once you have gotten all the collectibles in the mod, you can reset your progress by pressing F1 or L on the keyboard while in the Artisans homeworld, then clicking the red text that will appear in the bottom right corner.
UNREAL ENGINE 4.19 PROJECT FILES
Anyone and everyone is welcome to mess with this mod project however they like (I'd appreciate it if you'd credit "Bunn on the Spyro Modding Discord" as the original creator though). All the project files can be found at the Google Drive link, though it's horribly disorganized. If you have any questions or anything, you can find me on the modding Discord.
I am not doing any more Spyro mods or updates to this project so any further polish will have to be handled by someone else. But I worked hard on this for over three months so I hope people get enjoyment out of it.
