Example settings for Berserker's Multiworld 4.0

multiworld-example.yaml (Source)

# What is this file?
# ------------------
# This file contains options which allow you to configure your multiworld experience while allowing others
# to play how they want as well.
# The options in this file are weighted. This means the higher number you assign to a value, the more
# chances you have for that option to be chosen. For example, an option like this:
# map_shuffle:
#   on: 5
#   off: 15
# means you have 5 chances for map shuffle to not occur, and 15 chances for map shuffle to be turned on.
# That means a 1/4 chance of map shuffle.
# If you want to think of the options as percentages, you can make sure they add up to 100, but it's okay
# if they don't actually add up to 100.
# Lines starting with #, like all of these, are comments that get ignored.

# An important thing about yaml files is they completely break if your file contains a "tab" character.
# All these lines need to be indented with spaces.

# ================================================================================================

# Okay here's where we start!
# First, change your name unless you want to be called 'YourName'.

name: YourName                                                # Your name in-game. Spaces and underscores will be replaced with dashes

# Goal settings
# -------------

# Remember that in multiworld, unless you're planning to 'forfeit' to release your items,
# you also need to help everyone else reach their goals before you finish.
# Non-local triforce hunts are a silly goal in multiworld, because your progress isn't
# determined by what you do more than anyone else.
# _Local_ triforce hunts, in contrast, can be a nice short goal for multiworld.

# What's the goal of your game?
  ganon: 3                     # Climb GT, defeat Agahnim 2, then kill Ganon
  fast_ganon: 3                # Only killing Ganon is required. The hole is always open. Items may still be placed in GT, however
  dungeons: 0                  # Defeat the boss of all dungeons, including Agahnim's tower and GT. Kinda mean in multiworld.
  pedestal: 1                  # Collect all pendants and pull the Triforce from the Master Sword pedestal
  ganon_pedestal: 1            # Pull something out of the pedestal, _then_ fight Ganon
  triforce_hunt: 0             # this sucks in multiworld
  local_triforce_hunt: 0       # Collect 20 of 30 Triforce pieces in your world, then give them to Murahdala in front of Hyrule Castle
  local_ganon_triforce_hunt: 1 # Collect 20 of 30 Triforce pieces in your world, then kill Ganon

# Triforce hunt settings
# ----------------------
# These of course don't matter if you don't have triforce hunt as a possible goal.

# First off, there are now multiple ways to set the number of triforce pieces. 'extra' is the one that
# makes the most sense to me, where a number of required pieces is chosen, then a number of extra pieces
# are added to it.
  extra: 1

# How many triforce pieces do you need to collect to win?
  20: 1
  25: 1
  30: 1

# How many additional triforce pieces are there that you don't need to find?
# (You can put any numbers in as the options)
  3: 1
  5: 1
  10: 1

# Game setup
# ----------

# What does the start of the game look like? This used to be called 'world_state'.
  standard: 1  # Begin the game by rescuing Zelda from her cell and escorting her to the Sanctuary.
  open: 1      # Begin the game from your choice of Link's House or the Sanctuary
  inverted: 1  # Begin in the Dark World. You need the moon pearl in the light world. Some map changes.

# Retro mode changes a bunch of things to be like z1. Small keys are universal, arrows cost money, you must buy a quiver,
# take-any caves and an old-man cave are added in random previously-useless locations. You may need to find your sword
# from the old man's cave.
  on: 0
  off: 1

# Dungeon item settings
# ---------------------

map_shuffle:       # maps are shuffled outside their dungeons, and reveal whether each dungeon is a crystal or pendant
  on: 1
  off: 1

compass_shuffle:   # compasses are shuffled outside their dungeons
  on: 1
  off: 1

  on: 1            # small keys are shuffled outside their dungeons
  universal: 1     # you have one pool of small keys, they work for any key door, you can buy more in a shop
  off: 3

bigkey_shuffle:    # big keys are shuffled outside their dungeons
  on: 1
  off: 1

local_keys:        # your shuffled keys are in your own world, not other worlds in multiworld
  on: 1
  off: 3

# You know those keys that are under pots or dropped by enemies? Those can be shuffled into the item pool.
# Key-drop shuffle plus small key shuffle can require _lots_ of dipping into dungeons.
  on: 0
  off: 1

# When can you see how many item locations are in a dungeon and how many you've checked?
  on: 1        # always!
  pickup: 0    # when you find the compass
  default: 0   # when you find the compass but only if the compass is shuffled
  off: 0       # never!

# This setting is part of a mode called 'Ambrosia' that's balanced for racing. When it's on, the boss
# of a dungeon will always drop an item that 'counts' -- it won't be a dungeon item, like a map,
# compass, or unshuffled key. It could still be garbage, of course.

# Entrances and doors
# -------------------

# Do overworld doors go where you expect them to go?
# Documentation:
  none: 1           # Vanilla game map. All entrances and exits lead to their original locations. You probably want this option
  dungeonssimple: 0 # shuffle just dungeons amongst each other, swapping dungeons entirely, so Hyrule Castle is always 1 dungeon
  dungeonsfull: 0   # shuffle any dungeon entrance with any dungeon interior
  simple: 0         # Randomizes dungeons with dungeons, connectors with connectors, etc.
  restricted: 0     # Like simple but connectors can be weirder
  full: 0           # Any entrance can lead pretty much anywhere, except connectors have to keep you in the same world
  crossed: 0        # Any entrance can lead pretty much anywhere, and can provide paths between the worlds
  insanity: 0       # Entrances and exits are decoupled, so you can walk in and out the same door and end up somewhere else

# Door shuffle is the new thing where the insides of dungeons are scrambled. Draw maps!
  vanilla: 1  # dungeons are like they are in vanilla
  basic: 0    # dungeons are shuffled within themselves
  crossed: 0  # dungeons are made of chunks of all the dungeons! Hyrule Castle might have rooms from Tower of Hera and Misery Mire in it.

  on: 1       # Uses the experimental hud for door shuffle, if door shuffle is on. You probably want it

# When it's not vanilla doors, how shuffled do you want your doors to be?
  1: 0         # open edges and centered stairways go where you expect
  2: 1         # open edges and centered stairways are shuffled
  3: 1         # Lobby shuffle: the entrances to dungeons can be different rooms.

# When does the logic place items that are inaccessible?
  items: 1     # Guarantees you will be able to acquire all items, but you may not be able to access all locations. The usual for z3r.
  locations: 1 # Guarantees you will be able to access all item locations, and therefore all items
  none: 0      # Guarantees only that the game is beatable. Some items may be unreachable if you don't need them.

# Are the sword, shield, and bow a series of progressive upgrades? Change this if you want a throwback to older versions of the randomizer.
  on: 1      # All items progressive, like usual
  off: 0     # No items progressive: maybe your uncle hands you the butter sword right away
  random: 0  # Randomly decides for all items. Swords could be progressive, shields might not be

# Hint tiles
  'on': 1      # Hint tiles sometimes give item location hints
  'off': 0     # Hint tiles provide 'gameplay tips' that are things you already know

# Where are swords located?
  randomized: 2  # Swords are placed randomly throughout the world
  assured: 2     # Begin with a sword, the rest are placed randomly throughout the world
  vanilla: 1     # Swords are placed in vanilla locations in your own game (Uncle, Pyramid Fairy, Smiths, Pedestal)
  swordless: 0   # Your swords are replaced by rupees. Gameplay changes have been made to accommodate this change.

# What items are available?
  easy: 0    # There are more progressive items than necessary, and two lamps
  normal: 1  # Item availability remains unchanged from the vanilla game
  hard: 0    # Reduced upgrade availability (max: 14 hearts, blue mail, tempered sword, fire shield, no silvers unless swordless)
  expert: 0  # Minimum upgrade availability (max: 8 hearts, green mail, master sword, fighter shield, no silvers unless swordless)

# Do you want certain items to kinda suck?
# In hard functionality:
#   - potions are less effective
#   - you can't catch faeries
#   - cape uses double magic
#   - byrna does not grant invulnerability
#   - boomerangs do not stun
#   - silver arrows are disabled outside ganon
# In expert functionality, on top of that:
#   - the hookshot also doesn't stun
#   - potions are even less effective
  normal: 1  # Vanilla game item functionality
  hard: 0    # Reduced helpfulness of items 
  expert: 0  # Vastly reduced helpfulness of items

# hey. do you like getting stuck in BK mode? or glitching out of BK mode?
  on: 1      # your progression items are found in similar spheres to other players
  off: 0     # maybe your moon pearl is on someone else's Trinexx >_<

# Provide a chance of starting with certain items

# 'Enemizer' settings

# Enemy shuffle: the main thing you think of when you think "enemizer"
  on: 1           # enemies are shuffled
  off: 3

  default: 1      # Vanilla enemy damage
  shuffled: 0     # Enemies deal 0 to 4 hearts and armor helps

  on: 1
  off: 1

# BEES! [oprah.gif]
# Beemizer replaces some items with bees. Some are 'bee traps' that are swarms of bees that attack you, some are just a
# peaceful bee that goes in a bottle if you have one.
# Beemizer levels 1 and 2 are great once in a while, for the unexpected fun of sending your friends bees over the Internet.
# Levels 3 and 4 are VERY HARD. You will have a max of 4 hearts.
  0: 1   # No bee traps are placed
  1: 0   # 25% of the non-essential item pool is replaced with bee traps
  2: 0   # 60% of the non-essential item pool is replaced with bee traps, of which 20% could be single bees
  3: 0   # 100% of the non-essential item pool is replaced with bee traps, of which 50% could be single bees
  4: 0   # 100% of the non-essential item pool is replaced with bee traps

# 'Shop shuffle' affects the contents of shops. The options are combinations of letters that
# determine what is shuffled. You can make up new combinations if they aren't contradictory, out
# of these letters:
# i: shuffle the vanilla shop inventories around
# f: generate new inventories
# g: generate an inventory for each "type" of shop (I think)
# p: randomize the prices
# w: include the witch shop in the shuffle
# u: bring back bomb and arrow upgrades, and include those in the item pool
# To make shops interesting, you probably want to set 'shop_shuffle_slots' also.

  none: 1      # shops are normal
  ip: 0        # shops sell typical items but with random selections and prices
  f: 0         # shops have new inventories with vanilla prices
  gp: 0        # shops are a little different, but usually have the same inventory
  fp: 0        # shops are unique and randomized
  fpw: 0       # shops are very random, including the witch shop
  ufpw: 0      # all that and also upgrades are back in the item pool

# Shops can now sell items that come from the item pool, including unique items like the
# fire rod. These items are marked with a star. After you buy them, their slot is filled by
# an item from the normal shop pool.
# There are 30 possible shop slots. How many of them should sell items from the item pool?
# (10 might be a good choice to experience shop shuffle and not have to farm money)
