I'm turning D2R SP experience into what I would like to play with. I played a lot of Enjoy-SP with Plugy in Diablo 2 and my goal is to make something similar in the end. Hope you enjoy it too :)

## Basic info ##

Author: Karla (aryastark88 in Nexusmods, Karl130 in ModDB)

Includes:
Karla.mpq
Better SP v1.4.txt
Karla (folder for optional things)

Latest update: 15.10.2021
Latest version: Better SP v1.4
D2R version: 1.0.66381

(might break when D2R updates happen, so just in case)

People updating from older versions, before Mercenary submod was removed (v1.2-without-merc-mod), you need to unequip items from your mercenary and destroy all rings and amulets in any of your storages and character before you are able to play updated version. If your helms are Indestructible and without Defence value, then destroy those too.

If you want to get your character back to vanilla, place all the items in inventory on top 4 rows and in stash starting from upper-left in a 10x10 area in each tab. Items outside of that get deleted when carrying over (as vanilla has smaller storage)

## How to install ##


1. Open your file manager and navigate to your Diablo II Resurrected installation directory, usually located in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II Resurrected"
2. Create a new folder named "mods" in the Diablo II Resurrected installation directory
3. Create "Karla" folder into the new "mods" folder and place Karla.mpq folder there
It should look like this:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II Resurrected\mods\Karla\Karla.mpq"
4. Create a new shortcut for D2R.exe
5. Right-click on the new shortcut and select properties of the made shortcut, and add Target parameters -mod Karla
Example:
Target: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II Resurrected\D2R.exe" -mod Karla
Start in: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II Resurrected"
6. Start Diablo II Resurrected using the new shortcut and enjoy :)

## Cube Recipes ##

Tome of Identify + Tome of Town Portal = Cow Level portal (no leg anymore)
Scroll of Town Portal + Scroll of Identify = Token of Absolution
All gems and runes require 2 copies for upgrade, higher runes don't require gem for upgrade
Downgrade runes -- 1x Zod -> 1x Cham; 1x Shael -> 1x Sol etc etc
Socket punch with Jewels (item ilvl still limits socket count, check d2 wiki for max numbers). Add sockets to any socketable item with [item + x*jewels = item with x sockets] (example: rare weapon + 2 jewels = rare weapon with 2 sockets)
4 Perfect Skulls + Socketed Item = Item + Socketables
4 different essences + Perfect Skull = Zod Rune
Swap Uber Keys -- Key of Terror -> Key of Hate -> Key of Destruction -> Key of Terror -> ...
Item + Zod Rune + Perfect Skull = turn item Ethereal, BUT it has 1 less ilvl AND it will be rerolled completely (can turn random junk even to rare ethereal like this or into a cracked ethereal item, if bad luck hehe)
Item + Token of Absolution = turn item White, also removes Ethereal status (can become also superior etc), BUT it has 1 less ilvl AND it will be rerolled completely (especially noticable on like Sacred Targes etcetc as also all res changes)
3 Perfect Gems + Magic item = re-rolled Magic item (some people didn't know that it is actually vanilla recipe, so listing here)
6 Perfect Gems + Rare item = re-rolled Rare item

Dear developer, with your mod, the iron golem dies every time I log out, could you fix this problem?

I sometimes wonder if the dev actually reads the post seeing that he never responds

For the people having issues with monsters becoming allies, I found this in another forum and it worked for me (although there are reports of this not being 100% reliable): add -txt to your D2R.exe shortcut path after the -mod Karla. e.g.:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo II Resurrected\D2R.exe" -mod Karla -txt
