Modding:Achievement data


This page explains how the game stores and parses achievement data. This is an advanced guide for mod developers.

Index Field Example Value
0 name Moving Up
1 description Upgrade your house.
2 display achievement on collections tab before it's earned true
3 prerequisite achievement -1
4 hat earned (index from hats.xnb) 13

If index 2 is "true" and index 3 is "-1" then the achievement star will be displayed on the collections tab (greyed out if not yet achieved). Otherwise, index 3 shows the number of the achievement that must be earned before the achievement will be displayed on the Collections tab. (Example: you must earn achievement 28 "Treasure Trove" before achievement 5 "A Complete Collection" will be displayed.)

The only achievement with a value of "false" in index 2 is the secret achievement that doesn't display until it's earned.
