Greetings Diablo fans!

This mod aims to alter the player experience by making the game less grindy and a lot more friendlier for solo/single playing. At the same time a few game mechanics have been adjusted serving for some tougher challenges. Here is a list with the most important changes:

Major changes:
1) No level requirement on item affixes (everything drops anywhere)
2) Runes and rare/unique items are easier to find
3) 40 levels instead of 99 with 10 stat points per level (the Ancients are the last boss on Hell)
4) Potions are disabled/unusable
5) No mana cost and no cooldowns on skills
6) Attacks always ignore the monsters' defense
7) Only super unique monsters and bosses can have damage immunities
8) Better/easier rolls for rare jewels, which are guaranteed drops from unique monsters
9) New Horadric cube receipts for socketing and runes (read them at the end)

Other changes:
- All runewords are available for single player
- All skills are bindable to left mouse button
- Durability on items removed
- Maximum quantity on stackable items raised
- Token of Absolution sold by Akara
- Tomes stack increased from 20 to 100
- Not needed affixes removed from the drop pool
- Unique charms are possible drops anywhere
- Gems are guaranteed drops from champions
- Reduced pre-requirements for skills
- Improved experience curve in the very early game
- Stamina drain severely reduced
- Only magic items received from gambling
- Hirelings are a lot more expensive
- Town vendors have become greedier
- Town vendors aren't selling armor and potions
- Cows are less generous
- Some shrines have been corrupted (reduced duration of their effects)
- Crafting pool always contains all prefixes and suffixes
- No socketing limitations due to difficulties
- Socketing of superior quality normal items with the existing cube receipts is now possible

New Horadric cube receipts:

4 perfect gems + tsc (scroll of town portal) -> random rune

1 perfect gem + tsc + 1 armor/weapon/helm/shield -> adds 1 socket
1 perfect gem + isc (scroll of identify) + 1 armor/weapon/helm/shield -> adds 2 sockets
1 perfect gem + tsc + isc + 1 armor/weapon/helm/shield -> adds 3 sockets
1 perfect gem + 2 isc + 1 armor/weapon/shield -> adds 4 sockets
1 perfect gem + tsc + 2 isc + 1 weapon -> adds 5 sockets
1 perfect gem + 3 isc + 1 weapon -> adds 6 sockets

This mod is tested and working on Diablo 2 v1.14d.

I can't say whether it works with older versions. You can try and share the result.

Another question, is it meant to be so easy? does it ever get harder? if yes, at what point? thank u in advance.

also is it intended unique items are trash compare to rares? (ast least at start)
also, nowhere to buy keys from?

The aim of the mod is to deliver fun solo experience.

There are currently no plans to build up on the mod or change anything about it, besides adding D2R support to it eventually.

I love this mod but found it far too difficult. Could you make an alternate version that allows health potions? Or makes them very expensive?

Potions won't be added in the future.

For normal you have to use your TP instead of a potion, for NM you have to have a working build, and for Hell you need proper runewords that would make the healing for you.

That makes sense and a great job on the mod once again.

Thank you. During these pandemic times single player games gets more popular and I always wanted to make a solo focused mod for D2, so it was the perfect time to give such mod to the Diablo community. I am glad it's received well.

Having a lot of fun with this! Understand why hirelings are so expensive, but is there a way to make it realistic to level the Act 1 hireling you're given? The XP requirements are way too high

It's a solo mod. No hirelings.
