    Banker Lite: Gold Sharing System Comments Thread

    Banker Lite v1: Scroll-based Gold Sharing

    This is a mod to help you share your gold between characters. But unlike many other mods of its kind, "Banker Lite" does not rely on any conventional merchant services in order to operate.

    Instead, you use your "ATM Card" (an infinitely reusable scroll) to "deposit" your gold in the bank, and receive "promissory notes" (one-time use consumable scrolls) to acknowledge your deposits. To "withdraw" your gold from the bank, simply read the "promissory notes", and your gold will be returned to you.

    If you are lucky, you might even find some low-denomination "promissory notes" just lying around in some dungeon.

    I tuned the underlying skill of the "ATM Card" to scale its gold deductions (and "promissory note" denominations) based on the player's current total gold:
    • A player with over 1 billion gold will "deposit" 1 billion gold.
    • A player with less than 1 billion gold (but more than 1 million gold) will "deposit" 1 million gold.
    • A player with less than 1 million gold (but more than 1 thousand gold) will "deposit" 1 thousand gold.
    • A player with less than 1 thousand gold will not "deposit" anything at all.

    New characters receive their "ATM Cards" from the Destroyer at the start of the game. There are currently no other spawning methods implemented for the "ATM Card" item. Therefore, if you have any mods installed that change the first quest in Act 1, you will want to put this mod above them in your loading order.

    Special thanks to @TwinkleToes for helping me code the skills used to make these scrolls work, and to @KelinTor for inspiring me with the old "Gold Sharing Service" TL1 mod.

    Just to set the record straight, I will reiterate what I pointed out in the TorchModders Discord:

    All I really did with this mod was implement "promissory notes" (a system of currency which actually preceded the use of gold "sovereign" coins in Great Britain) in a format consistent with the setting and gameplay of vanilla TL2.

    The idea and implementation were both loosely inspired by the TL1 mod "Gold Sharing Service" by @KelinTor (which also uses "promissory notes", though in a more primitive way).
