Subscribe to this mod
Mod discontinued!
Thank you for using my first mod for such a long time.
It was fun while it lasted, but its about time i stop updating this mod.
But not to worry, instead i created this
Since creating pup, i progressed a lot, and gained knowledge that allowed me to take modding to a next level.
Love you all.

Since creating COTF I've revisited this mod once more and fixed multiplayer experience due to many requests

Player upgrade points is a huge mod, that completely changes the way you will play the game.
Mod file is bigger than others (6MB) because it has a lot of images.
Most of the images i made myself.

Huge thank you to laxmantim for a donation
If you enjoy my work and you are willing to donate -

Mod contains a short tutorial on a start of every new game to introduce the player to the mod and briefly explain it.

Player can gain experience required to level up by:
  • Destroying effigies. Breaking one will grand a random amount of experience to every player.
    The least experience you can get from doing it is 5 and the max is 30.
  • Killing enemies. Different enemies grant different amounts of experience. The stronger they are, the more exp they will give.

Gained experience can be increased. One way to do it is to quickly kill enemies, one after another. This will add a massacre bonus.
When the massacre bonus is active, exp gained from killing enemies will be multiplied.
There are different types of massacre bonuses
  1. Massacre
    Exp from kills is multipied by 2. Granted by quickly killing 3 enemies.
  2. Bloody Massacre
    Exp from kills is multipied by 4. Granted by quickly killing 5 enemies.
  3. Slaughter
    Exp from kills is multipied by 5. Granted by quickly killing 10 enemies.
  4. Rampage
    Exp from kills is multipied by 6. Granted by quickly killing 15 enemies.

The massacre bonuses are gone after not killing anything for 25 seconds.

When the player gains enough experience to level up, his experience is reset and his level increases. With every level exp required to level up also increases. After that excess experience is granted.

Leveling up restores players health, stamina, energy, fullness and thirst by 20% of max.

Upon leveling up. the player recieves a point, that he can spend anytime he wants on one of the following:
  1. Stamina on attack - decreases the amount of stamina used when swinging a weapon. Also affects loosing stamina when throwing spears.
  2. Sprint speed - increases how fast the player can move when sprinting. Scales with athletism. Upgrading this allows for faster gathering for resources, evading attacks that would normaly be hard to dodge (fatman's charge or cannibals' leaps). Still works when pushing a sled.
  3. Sprint stamina usage - default value is 4 stamina points per second when sprinting. With this upgrade you will be able to run for longer periods of time. Does help to gain more points into athletism.
  4. Jump heigh - Pretty self-explanatory. Allows to gain access to some spots. This upgrade is highly situational.
  5. Fall damage reduction - Falling will deal less damage to the player. Good to upgrade it if you are planning to descend into the sinkhole the fast way (the only good way).
  6. Passive health regen - Player gains health per second. This effect is never disabled when you have it upgraded. Works 24/7.
  7. Passive stamina regen - Player gains stamina per second. Works similarly to health regen upgrade. Also just to make it clear: stamina is the inner bar on the hud, the one that is spent on all the actions. With other upgrades it allows for infinite sprint or attacks
  8. Hairspray fuel - increases the amount of hair spray contained in that small can by compressing it with winrar.
  9. Chainsaw fuel - increases the time required to empty the fuel can. The only eco-friendly upgrade this mod provides.
  10. Attack speed - one of the most usefull upgrades. Increases swing speed. Allows for faster attacks which increase damage, allows to permamently stun enemies, allows to chop trees faster. Good strategy is to upgrade attacks speed and upgrade your weapon with teeth and glass only.
  11. Weapon damage - increases the damage of melee weapons. Multiplies with other upgrades(teeth,glass, specials).
  12. Projectile damage - incrases the damage of arrows(the better the arrow the more damage), bullets, spears.
  13. Diving speed and oxygen usage - increases how fast you move in water and decreases how much oxygen you use underwater.
    Allows to swim though some underwater passages without rebreather.
  14. Damage reduction - makes the player more tanky by decreasing the damage that cannibals and animals(excluding sharks) deal to him
  15. Block damage percentage and stamina used to block - Yeah, all it does is upgrades those.

When player reaches level 10, a completely new menu will be avaible. From this point every 5 levels he will gain a special point that he can spend on one of 104 special upgrades. Those upgrades are very powerful. There 5 are differently themed upgrade trees.

Some info about MULTIPLAYER
After update 1.10 of the game, it no longer works ;(
It's due to the addition of grief protection. If you check the patch notes, you might notice that they *patched* players instantly dealing damage to other players enought to kill them. Well, it interferes with the way pup used to share experience
Hosts still gain experience, and clinets get nothing.

  12. Utility tree's final upgrade (Logs) now works and you are now able to carry 4 logs, yet still only 2 are displayed
