Index

Special orders are a more flexible and customizable quest system unlocked in late game. Special orders can be added to the data file with options like duration, repeatability, objectives, and rewards.

This page explains how the game stores and uses special orders. This is an advanced guide for mod developers.

Raw data

Special orders are stored in Content\Data\SpecialOrders.xnb, which can be unpacked for editing. Here's the raw data as of 1.5.1:

Format

Basic Fields

Each special order has a few basic fields, as well as some more complex fields (which are explained below). TODO: Finish filling in this table.

Field Name Description
Name Name of the special order

Randomized Elements

TODO: This is important to explain!

Objectives

Each order can have any number of objectives of the given types.

Objective type Description
Collect The player must obtain items that match the AcceptedContextTags field. The items must never have been in a player inventory. This applies to any method of collecting items (e.g., harvesting crops, slaying monsters, collecting from a machine, cooking a dish, etc). There's no restriction to how the item can be collected; e.g., a special order for emeralds will be equally find with gems found in the mines or produced in a crystalarium.
Deliver The player must give items that match the AcceptedContextTags field to a given character. This doesn't count towards the character's gift limit.
Fish Equivalent to Collect, but only counts items found by fishing.
Gift The player must give items that match the AcceptedContextTags field to a given character. This does count towards the character's gift limit. Parameters can include a minimum gift taste level.
JKScore The player must achieve at least the given Junimo Kart score. This tracks the highest score reached while the special order is active.
ReachMineFloor The player must reach or exceed the given floor in the mines or the Skull Cavern (depending on the SkullCave field) while the special order is active.
Ship The player must ship items through their shipping bin which match the AcceptedContextTags field. The quest objective progresses when the items are collected, not when they're put in the bin. Player still get money for the shipped items as they would normally.
Donate The player must add items that match the AcceptedContextTags field to a dropbox.
Slay The player must kill a minimum number of monsters of the given name while the special order is active.

Rewards

Each order can have any number of rewards of the given types.

Reward Description
Friendship Increases the amount of friendship, which is by default 250 points (1 heart) and for the requesting NPC. If specified, the units are in terms of number of friendship points, not hearts.
"Type": "Friendship",
"Data": {
    "Amount": "Number of friendship points to add", // integer
    "TargetName": "Name of NPC to add them to" // string
}
Gems Rewards the farmer a set amount of Qi Gems.
"Type": "Gems",
"Data": {
    "Amount": "Number of Qi Gems to award" // integer
}
Mail Sets a mail flag, which can be used to trigger custom events, dialogue, or other changes. "MailReceived" sets the name of the mail flag that is set upon completion of the special order. "NoLetter" controls whether there is an actual letter corresponding to the mail flag, and is true by default (no mail sent). "Host" seems to be intended to control whether only the host receives the quest completion letter, but due to "send to everyone" being always true, appears to have no real effect in the game. (TODO: verify this.) "Host" is false by default.
"Type": "Mail",
"Data": {
    "MailReceived": "Name of mail flag", // string
    "NoLetter": "true/false", // boolean
    "Host": "true/false" // boolean
}
Money Rewards the farmer a set amount of money or a value that depends on the donated item. The total money rewarded is Amount * Multiplier.
"Type": "Money",
"Data": {
    "Amount": "Amount of money", // integer
    "Multiplier": "Multiplier on amount" // float
}
ResetEvent Removes the event IDs from the list of event IDs seen by the player, thus making the events repeatable.
"Type": "ResetEvent",
"Data": {
    "ResetEvents": "eventID1 eventID2 eventID3" // space-separated integers
}

Context tags

The AcceptedContextTags fields specify context tags for required items. This consists of a string with the following format:

syntax effect
! When prefixed to a context tag, indicates that an item must not have that tag.
, Separates any number of required context tags. For example, A, B, C matches items that have all of those tags.
/ Separates any number of alternate context tags. For example, A/B/C matches items that have at least one of those tags.

For example, !forage_item, category_vegetable/category_fruit, quality_gold would match non-forage gold-quality items which are either fruits or vegetables.
