DESCRIPTIONS

This CSVMerge – Item Addition Utility will soon be redundant and will no longer be maintained or updated, it will remain here to ease transition and to enable continued use of mods already making use of this utility.

This project has had many contributors, and I’d like to thank each and every one of them for their contributions and assistance in getting this to a workable state; without these people, the project would never have reached this stage.

There are several requirements for this utility, and I’ve done my best to distinguish which of these you’ll need based on your intended use:

(For Users) = Things that you will need as a user, to operate this CSVMerge – Item Addition Utility and it’s features/integration with other mods.
(For Modders) = Things that you will need as a modder intending to use this utility for your own mods.
(For Users & Modders) = Things that everyone will need regardless of use-case.
(OPTIONAL) = Things that are optional and not necessarily required for this utility to run.

How Does It Work?

Items in this game all come from the same small handful of files, which are organized by type/slot. Adding to these files has been possible for quite some time, but the problem is that once done, it is incompatible with any other alterations to those same files.

This CSVMerge – Item Addition Utility essentially allows for the patching of these files, allowing us to use them properly without fear of incompatibilities.

Technical features of this utility include:

  • Item names.
  • Item descriptions.
  • Item icons.
  • The ability to add your items to street vendors of your choosing.
  • Compatibility with Atelier.

Utility Installation and Requirements

This CSVMerge – Item Addition Utility necessitates the installation and operation of Cyber Engine Tweaks (CET), the details and troubleshooting of which will not be covered or indulged in here.

Step #1

Simply drag and drop the contents of this mod into your game’s root directory, the location of your game will vary depending on where you purchased or otherwise acquired it from, listed at the bottom of this description are some typical installation paths that this game uses.

Correct installations paths:

👁‍🗨 How to install Cyberpunk 2077 mods with specific instructions

For Users:

As a user, all you have to do is install a new item mod, run the script, and this CSVMerge – Item Addition Utility will create a new mod archive and CET script, which it will automatically move into the appropriate folders. If the modder has done everything correctly, all you need to do is install the mod and run the script:

Step #1:
Install item mod.

Step #2:
Run: Cyberpunk 2077\CSVMerge\CSVMerge.cmd

Step #3:
Close the window once it has finished, assuming no issues arise.

For Modders:

CSVMerge – Item Addition Utility included is a moderately detailed rant about the files you’ll need to create a new item; this tutorial will most likely be expanded upon as more information is discovered.

  • There are also template files included for you to use as you see fit; it is highly recommended that you use these included files and simply make them unique to you, as detailed in the tutorial.
  • ALSO INCLUDED ARE THE FILES USED IN MY EXAMPLE SCARF MOD; these are mostly for reference, but feel free to use any of the files if they are at all useful.
  • Make sure your mod is properly packaged and that nothing is out of place; one broken mod will bring the entire system down.
  • If you’re having problems or want to join the fight, there’s a link to our Discord server at the bottom of this article.

Troubleshooting

CP77Tools missing .exe: Install WolvenKit Console from optional files on the Wkit mod page, linked in requirements.
.dll errors: Install NET 5.0, linked in requirements.
Tool dead but I swear I did it all correctly: Clear out your “Cyberpunk 2077\CSVMerge\wolvenkitcli\mod” folder, and use fresh files from the main files of CSVMerge – Item Addition Utility archive.

Typical Game Installation Paths:

Steam: \SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Cyberpunk 2077
GOG: \GOGLibrary\Games\Cyberpunk 2077\
Epic: \EpicLibrary\Cyberpunk 2077\
