Modify Stacksize, Slots, Range, Player Start Pack, Tool Durability, Food Nutritions, Create Food Recipes, enable Big Shovel Alternative, and more.

NOTE: If you change the slots, then you need to be picked up and place again every item which has slots, in order to see the new slots in your game.
IF you get an error from your server after you apply settings, before trying to apply settings again, verify your files with steam first.

Note: This tool sets the weight of all items to 0,1 (super light). On Version 2.5, added the ability to change the weight on your own.

I developed this tool, in order to change the settings of my own private ECO Server.
It worked so good for me, so I decided to share it with you. I hope you like it.
If you have any ideas or you want to add more options, please let me know.

How to Use the App

Step 1: Backup the entire "Mod" folder from "Steam\steamapps\common\Eco Server", just in case you want to restore the default values.

Step 2: Type or copy-paste the path of Eco Server (example: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Eco Server).
For local games, use the path [...]/steam/steamapps/common/Eco/Eco_Data/Server.

Step 3: Fill the fields with the values you want to set. The the default values you'll see are those I set for my private server. You can set Stack size to 5000 or 500000, or even more! Everything's up to you! ;)

Step 4: Check which settings will be changed.

Step 5: Press the "Apply Now" Button

Step 6: Wait for the "All Done" message.

Step 7: Restart your Server and enjoy! :)

NOTE: After any ECO Update, it's good to re-run the app just in case

For Rented Servers

1. Install Eco Server on your local PC through Steam Tools.
2. Run the "Eco Server.exe" and wait for the very first initialization.
3. Close the "Eco Server.exe"
4. Run the "Eco Server Extra Configuration.exe" and make the changes you want, following the steps 1-6 of the above "How to Use".
5. Backup the entire "Mod" folder of the Rented Server.
6. Navigate to Eco Server Path of your local PC (example: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\Eco Server).
7. Copy-Paste the entire "Mod" Folder to your rented server.
8. Do not forget to enjoy! :)

NOTE: If you change the slots, then you need to be picked up and place again every item which has slots, in order to see the new slots in your game.

How to Use Food Maker

4. Check the ingridients you just picked from last column, called "Add Ingridient"
5. Press the button "COOK".
6. Restart your Server/Game.

a. The Food Maker is not able to add an icon to your food. For icons, you need to use Unity.
b. When you transfer or eat the new food, the icon will not disapear. This is also a Unity thing.
c. To make the "ghost" icon disapear, override it with a tool or something, and it will work great.

To restore the default values, press the button "Load Default Durability" and press the button "Save Tools".

Compatibility of the app with Linux

The app was already able to run on Linux, but wasn't possible to apply any changes.
The above problem found and fixed on version 4.0. You don't need to install any framework for this nor any dotnet version.
You just need the WINEHQ (tested with WINEHQ v6.0).

Tested with Ubuntu 20.04 (check the images of mod's page).
Linux instructions are inside the zip file.

If you use different Linux version, and the app is not running or not appyling any changes to you, just send me a message with your OS specifications (ex Debian v10), and I will debug the app to the same OS you use with VM.



Let's work on bugs together and find a solution

Please do not post the ouput of the CMD (the log file), but send me a private message with files that have the error.
For example, if you get the error,
"[01:30:19.913] [1] [ Info] [Eco] C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Eco\Eco_Data\Server\Mods\AutoGen\Vehicle\SmallWoodCart.cs(87,72): error CS1503: Argument "2": Konvertierung von "long" in "int" nicht möglich.",
then send me directly the file "SmallWoodCart.cs".

The output log itself, says nothing to me if there is a bug in the app.

How to send me the error files
1. Go to (or use any other simillar website)
2. Add all the files that causes the error, including the log file.
3. Generate a link
4. Send me the link on a private message.

Τhank you for the cooperation :)
