Default [Release] WillowTree#

WillowTree#

Latest version: 2.2
Download



Read this first:
WillowTree# is not an official tool for Borderlands, nor is it supported by Gearbox. Gearbox is not responsible for any loss of data or other errors due to WillowTree#. In addition, all discussion regarding modification of PS3 or Xbox 360 save data is strictly prohibited. Modifying any files from your PS3 or Xbox 360 will void the Terms of Service with the PSN and Xbox Live. This means that you can be banned from your console's respective network for using WillowTree# or any other third party tool. You are, however, welcome to discuss offline modification of the PC version of Borderlands. General gun discussion is fine, but any questions or instructions on how to mod on the Xbox 360 or PS3 is not allowed.

If you are on the Steam version of Borderlands, please turn off "Stat Collection". Using modified save data skews Gearbox's statistics and will not help them with the development of Borderlands 2.

WillowTree is a save editor for Borderlands which manipulates nearly every aspect of the stored data for any platform. This includes, but isn't limited to, weapons/items, quests, level, experience, echo logs, location, and backpack/bank space. WillowTree# is written in C# and uses the .NET 3.5 framework.
Requirements
- A PC, Xbox 360, and/or PS3 with a copy of Borderlands.
- The .NET 3.5 framework. (Not 2.0!)
- Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does WillowTree work on ~platform~?
A: WillowTree# works for saves from the Xbox 360, PC, and PS3 versions of Borderlands.

Q: When I load my save I get an error. Help?
A: The most common reason for saves not loading is that you aren't far enough into the game. I'd suggest getting at least 3-4 quests done after you start the game before modding that particular save. Otherwise, I can't help. You can upload your save to a site such as mediafire or sendspace and sending it to me via PM or posting a link to it in this topic.

Q: I edited a weapon/item and it isn't showing up in-game. Why?
A: As of the 1.30 patch, Borderlands no longer accepts "invalid" weapons and items. They simply will not show up when you start your game. If you're sure the gun is valid, make sure you entered/copied it correctly. If you're on a version of Borderlands prior to 1.30, then you probably didn't hit "Save Changes" after editing your gun.

Q: Wait, how do I even open my save?
A: Click on the WillowTree icon in the top left corner. It glows when you scroll over it. Then click "Open".

Q: Why does Borderlands crash when I edit it with WillowTree?
A: WillowTree# is often...buggy, particularly when dealing with DLC data. If you are on an old version of Borderlands, update. If you have weapons in your Moxxi bank, take them out.
If you have no items in your bank, put some in. You could also try using an older version of WillowTree#. Just make sure to backup your saves! WillowTree does it automatically when you hit "Save", but you should always keep your own backups!

Q: How do I open a 'zip'? How do I download '.NET 3.5'?
A: While you obviously aren't capable of doing any real modding, try Google. You know, that place?

Q: I downloaded WillowTree 1.2.2 and it keeps messing up my save. Why?
A: You're on an ancient version of WillowTree. Get WillowTree#, as it has DLC support.

Q: Where can I find premade weapons and items?
A: The Borderlands Modding Resource and the ZeroSubstance Borderlands Weapon & Item Database are excellent places to find what you want.

Q: i hate Willowtree it sucks because people join my game and crash it or blow up everything f u man
A: That's nice, but I didn't make WillowTree# for that purpose. WillowTree# is only meant to help people understand how Borderlands operates and to enhance their gameplay after they've finished the game. If someone uses it to ruin the game for others, it isn't my fault. I don't control how people use my tool.

Q: yea well you shouldnt have made it in the first place
A: Yeah? No. If I didn't, someone else would have. Oh wait, someone did! If not WillowTree, then Gibbed's editor. If not Gibbed's editor, then someone else. People are inherently jerks. Even if there would still be people ruining your experience. You know, like those people that whore all the loot? The kids that never shut their mouths? The trolls? The level 61's that join your level 1 game and obliterate everything? The only difference is how they go about being assholes.

Q: I would like to contribute to WillowTree#'s development. How might I go about this?
A: You can grab the latest sources for WillowTree# here. The current objectives for the project itself can be found here.

I just need to get off my ass and finish the custom weapon itemgrades and weapon damages so you can add in those.

Mostly DLC compatability and Weapons Workshop.

Quote:
Update v1.2.0:
- Added the new "Weapons Workshop" mode. It specificly edits weapons and items. Unlike the normal WillowTree mode, here you can add/remove/duplicate new weapons and items! It also includes a full list of parts (rather than the last version's limited list). Thanks to Turk there is a check on ItemGrades to make sure that you weapon won't revert to level 0.

Update v1.1.1:
- Added support for new DLC quests.

Update v1.1.0:
- New organized decompiling process.
- Added an editor for the multiple parts of the save. It can quickly edit weapons, items, quests, player info, character colors, name, skills, locations, and invintory info.
- Added weapon and item importing/exporting from files or from the clipboard.
- Built-in parts swapper.
- Number of bugs fixed.
- PC support added.

Update v1.0.1:
- Fixes a few minor bugs.
- Added PS3 save support.

Im, just curious how does "Finish Game" work when you can put Yes/No

When I start a new character and finish the skag quest I will exit and edit this.

When I try to even go into single player the game auto-crashes and won't show even the characters I wish to play. It crashes the whole-game.

This happens with all the other ones, but this is the only editor I know that has that option of finishing the game.

im afraid to mess with it, last time i used willowtree, even tho I loaded a seperate save file, it overwrote both of my save files (i loaded save002 and when I pushed save, it saved on save001 AND save002... horrible design) so im afraid now

I was having a glitch similar to this. Edited a character who had not finished the few starting quests and then my game would freeze when I tried to load the character.

Btw Xander, awesome program. Been having a lot of fun making guns using WT. Can't wait to see what you do with future versions.
