Modding (short for modifications) are anything that changes Darkest Dungeon's game content from what it originally was.
With the announcement  from the devs that "...official modding support is coming! We can’t wait to see what the community comes up with..." we're excited to have a platform where people can share explore guides and tutorials on the best mods and modding for Darkest Dungeon.
Most mods and modding add content to the game to alter gameplay, change the creative feel, or give the player more options in how they interact with the Darkest Dungeon world. It will soon be seen how some mods/modding may be bigger expansions, or if others simply add more settings and options to optimize speed, graphics, or gameplay of the game.
Ideally, the creator of a mod updates the mod whenever the game updates - bringing more content, bug fixes, or optimizations. Otherwise, the mod may not work with a newer version.
Types of mods
New Class Mods
By far the most popular type of mod. New class mods are mods adding to the game non-vanilla playable characters recruitable from the Stage Coach or town events. Other such mods make alterations to already existing characters (whether vanilla classes or modded classes).
Texture mods are adding to the game more available textures for various characters or objects. Most often creators of those mods are making custom skins for playable characters or NPCs in The Hamlet.
Town Events Mods
Mods that either add or modify already existing town events. They can also, but less often, be mods that remove certain town events from the save file, unless a mod responsible for it is disabled.
Mods that edit existing locations.
Mods that either modify, add, or remove enemies encountered in the game.
Mods that change the logistics of the player's inventory. Mods that change stacking of items are items mods.
Mods that edit items' behavior, add new items, or remove items.
Note that if you install a mod, it may stop the game from working properly. If you encounter a problem while using mods and want to report it, first remove all of your mods to see if the problem still happens, as in the future some of the mods might conflict with each other. If the problem continues to happen, please notify the developer of the mod. Otherwise, try to reproduce the problem with the fewest possible number of mods, and then report the problem to the author() of those mods.
