    I found a way to alter the items you get when choosing a chapter. This could be used to cheat in a massive way obviously, or you could use it to regain what you should have at that point. You can choose what level you are, what weapons, mods, ingrediants and collectables you have. You can even give yourself the items from the upcoming DLC, like the shock pulse bomb (which blows up the heads of nearby zombies), but this maybe be too naughty and get you told off by higher ups.

    Anyway, after opening and extracting Data0.pak, open the files Inventory.scr and Collectables.scr, these contain the item names of all the base items in the game. Copy and paste ones you want into a temporary file(this makes it easier incase you mess up). Open up default_player_setup.scr and locate the text sub Items_low, theres also medium, high and very high, dependign on the game chapter. Under there, you will find what items you will currently load with, paste the ones you want into that spot. Example:

    sub Items_High(){
    Item("Melee_CrowbarGen", 1);
    Item("Melee_MacheteBrutalGen", 1);
    Item("Medkit_HealthPackLarge", 1);
    Item("Cash_Cash", 4000);
    }

    Becomes

    sub Items_High(){
    Item("Melee_leg_Zedsdemise", 1);
    Item("Firearm_Sawed-OffShotgun", 1);
    Item("Throwable_Molotov", 1);
    Item("Craftpart_Algae", 1);
    Item("Craftplan_Shockcraft", 1);
    Item("Collectable_Idcard000", 1);
    Item("Collectable_News00", 1);
    Item("Cash_Cash", 500000);
    }

    Theres too many items to list here, just be sure to get all the chacters in the order shown above and you should be fine.

    If you want me to post a compiled list of every item in the game, PM me, its way too big to post here.

    I havnt found out how to alter the quality of weapons yet, but giving yourself a white lvl 50 Zed's Demise for example will be good enough, till you find better the proper way.

    guide to which bit, the bit i stated above? you dont have to download anything, jsut use 7zip to open the archieves mentioned above, and follow the other steps. The pack files you need to open are in \Steam\steamapps\common\dead island\DI\ whatever directory in the pack file, make the exact same directories in documents folder \Documents\DeadIsland\out\Data\

    Ive also edited quest rewards, so the first quest you get when starting the game on the beach is normally a nail mod, instead i get a lvl 50 orange Zed's Demise Katana. Ive modded each quest in act 1 to give a different orange weapon, so by the time im finished i'll have all the weapons i could want.

    The coolest thing though, is ive given myself every recipe/mod in the game including all the future DLC ones, including the stuff from the upcoming Bloodbath DLC, and they all work.

    Nice! thanks!

    Do you know a way to add progress in the story also? I means if, for exemple, I wanna try a new character I never played before, but I wanna use it just to join randomly online, there is a way to make it to start from character X (ex 15) without doing all the quest?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Ah, 1 more thing. I can put the whole Data folder from the data0 inside the proper location in the document and modify only what I need right? or I have to put only what I need from the Data folder? and for changing back to normal I can just delet everything right? if for exemple I wanna go play multiplayer again

    no, that'll work fine, its just easier to keep track if you only put in the files you want to change. Copying the folder is good though, it keeps all the directories in the right order.

    As for getting items into your current game, the best way is to alter the quest rewards. The best thing is to pick one of the repeatable ones. go to \Documents\DeadIsland\out\Data\Quests\ and open the act folder that is what your playing. Open either mani quests, or side quests. Side quests has more options, including the repeatable ones.

    To change the reward info when accepting the quest change the brief info
    e.g

    brief_item="&Melee_leg_Zedsdemise_N&"
    brief_item_color="4">

    then further down change the actual reward

    item="Melee_leg_Zedsdemise"
    item_color="4"/>

    the color is for the quaility 0 = white down to 4 = orange

    the brief bit isnt that important, whatever is says there, as long as you changed the set reward section, you will get that. It just shows what you will get when you start the quest.

    Just make sure you get everything precice, or it might mess up your game.

    By usinga repeatable quests, you can keep changing hte reward by laoding game, handing in, getting reward, exit game, change the reward in teh quests file, then go back to game and hand in again. This way you can quickly get all the items you want




    Also as a note, even if you give yourself 4 weapons, exactly the same, they wont have the same stats, the game chooses them randomly, one shotgun i got had 900 dmg and 16 accuracy, another had 1000 dmg and 15 accuracy. Its best to get a few of each, then pick the best of the lot
