Plants vs Zombies!

This mod aims to add a whole bunch of plant cards from pvz into inscryption (and a few zombies too!!).

Currently it is for Act 1 of Inscryption, adding:

  • 58 cards
  • 17 sigils
  • 5 tribes
  • A custom Sun card cost, which is kept track of on an animated counter
  • 4 sun producing side decks
  • 3 starting decks
  • 1 challenge


Tribe choices are now accounted for!

Cost choices are now accounted for!

Pack mule is now accounted for!

Pack rat is now accounted for!

What is the Sun Cost??

The sun cost is somewhat like a blend between energy and bones, but with its own twist on it of course.

  • You start each battle with 3 sun
  • Gain 1 sun per round
  • Sun producing cards can, as implied by the name, produce more sun with their sigils
  • Most plant cards cost sun to play, even the sun producers in the side deck
  • The sun cost is displayed in front of the scales

The project might continue getting updates eventually!!

Please let me know if you find any bugs or balancing issues.

I still have plenty more planned cards and sigils that I am yet to add. This includes cards of other cost types

Possibly not all trials/choices have been accounted for yet.

Eventually planning to add custom encounters.

Eventually planning to add custom items

Eventually planning to add more custom challenges

I might end up adding custom bosses

How mod makers can also use the sun cost

If you wish to expand on my mod in areas I haven't yet gotten around to, or just make your own thing using the sun cost, you can do so!

If you are coding in C#, you need to add this extended property to your card:

CardInfo myCard = ...;
myCard.SetExtendedProperty("SunCost", 1);

If you are making a card in JSON, you need to add the extended property like this:

    "name": "MyCard",
    "extensionProperties": {
        "SunCost": "1"

Special thanks

Aurey for playtesting my mod, giving active feedback and being very epic.

VoidSlime for helping me with a whole bunch of unique code for the cost and sigils.

Everyone in the modding discord who contributed card ideas, especially Blind the Bound Demon, who spammed me with ideas (in a good way).

Seto for helping figure out why my mods werent working in the new update, might have given up if they didn't suggest fixes.

Emmet for helping test out starting decks, and providing lots of ideas for them.

Also everyone in the modding discord who helped me learn how to code mods of course.
