Hantacore's mods unique thread (Map, Music, tweaks...)

Greetings everyone

Since i’m mostly active on the Steam forums, I would still like to give you access to my mods for Stranded Deep. They are mostly published on Nexusmods and your feedback is very appreciated.
They should work on either PC Windows version (sorry Linux fellas, i’m not sure UMM works on Linux).

InGame Map Mod for UMM
Quite basic map of the atoll, accessible with several options :

Custom Music Mod for UMM
Allows the user to play custom music instead of the original ones (mostly made for a contact in Steam who wanted the Jaws music for sharks)

How to install the UMM mods

Download and install Unity Mod Manager :

Install the hook on Stranded Deep, select the “Assembly” method.

Drag & drop the mods zip into UMM. You should see the dll inside a “Mods” directory in the Stranded Deep installation Folder.

If everything worked fine, you should see the mod appear at startup like this :

All-In One Tool for Stranded Deep
An external application which has several purposes

  • Map drawing : basically draws the world based on your savegame
  • World Randomizer : uses existing cartographer data and custom islands to generate a completely random world, with island density option
  • Mapmaking tool : makes the mapmaker’s life easier, or tries to ^^

More are to come every sometimes, whenever I have an idea or an inspiration.
I also have some custom islands done, but my mapmaker friends are the real MVPs on that matter, take a look at their work.

And for anyone interested, I wrote a full guide on how to mod with UMM for Stranded Deep :

Happy modding !


I can’t edit my post anymore, is this some kind of bug, or am I doing something wrong ? :thinking:

Hi Hantacore,

Haven’t run into this one before but it does appear as though there is a window of 24 minutes from the initial post during which you can edit.
Do you have a lot more to add here?
I would suggest additional posts, though if need be I can insert some extra links to the OP for you as a one off (won’t be able to do that on demand though, would get messy eventually).

Hi there, thank you for your answer !

Actually, I was hoping to maintain an updated list of my mods in the same post, for readability and reference. It’s really a bummer we can’t do that… Would that be negotiable ? E.g. allow the users to update their post forever (like in Steam discussions) ?

Have a great day

There are limits set based on your time/activity on the forums so as you post more your window should grow to a maximum of 12 hours.
I’ll pass your request to the rest of the forum team.

That is really a handy tool. Thanks for creating it!

I am using Linux (different distros), so created a script that just have to be place in the same folder. Then execute it to prepare the prefix and execute the program. Everything related to this tool will stay in the same folder.

If anyone is interested, here is the script:

Yeah ! Now that’s what we need !

Can I put this script as an optional download on Nexus next to the app ?
What are the prerequisites ?

Hello @Hantacore

I changed the code a bit and added some comments for better understanding.

Yes, sure…

In general:

These can be normally installed with the package manager of the Distribution. Anything else in the script are core tools, which are available in any Linux Distribution.

Since i can’t edit my post, here are my last published mods :

Stranded Deep RPG mod for UMM
A new framework for mapmakers to add text on some objects, that can be seen by players ingame if they have the mod too.

Stranded Deep Tweaks for UMM
Some tweaking of game values, if needed.

Stranded Deep Wet and Cold mod for UMM
Adds a new “wet”, “cold” and “sick” mechanism to the game, making shelters and warming up senseful

Feel free to comment

First release of the retexture project

The Ingame Map mod has been updated, bugfix + player icon size option

If you like the mods, do not hesitate to give some feedback, this thread seems pretty dead

Hi, I love your all-in-one tool, but a lot of workshop islands seem to fail to load. I have almost two hundred of them, but it only shows about fifty. Do you know why this might be?

Either a bug or a version that’s too old to load, would you mind giving me a link to an island that does not load so I can check ?
Which screen does not work ? Randomizer or Mapmaker ?

My apologies, the randomizer. I like to have a lot of options, so I downloaded a ton of maps. Here are some of the more recent ones:

Steam Community :: Error (Oasis of Tranquility)
Steam Community :: Error (Fitzall Island)
Steam Community :: Error (Copper Curves)
Steam Community :: Error (WelnorP7)
Steam Community :: Error (Shrimp Island)

EDIT: I’m glad I included the workshop names!

I downloaded the Oasis of Tranquility from both Nexus and the Workshop, and it seems to load just fine, are you sure your maps are not too old ?
Do you have the latest version of the tool (0.8) ?

I have 0.8 of the tool, and I downloaded the map recently (I didn’t even own the game when the map was last updated.) Thanks for checking into it, though, I appreciate it!

No problem really
Could you give me a name of a map that apparently does not load on your side ?
Maybe the path for your steam library, and hence the workshop, is a bit exotic and does not work ?

Can you give me that tool ?
