This mod requires the following mods to function

bbepis-BepInExPack-3.0.0 icon

Unified BepInEx all-in-one modding pack - plugin framework, detour library

Preferred version: 3.0.0

´╗┐While still available, this mod is superceded by HarbTweaks.

When you normally spawn in on the first stage, there are no enemies in the area and you have to wait for the enmies to spawn. This is often rather annoying, because you just want to get going.

This mod changes that. The first stage will now contain prespawned enemies. It accomplishes that by telling the game that it's actually on the second stage instead when checking if it should be prespawning enemies for the first stage.


Place the dll in your Bepinex/Plugins folder.


Not tested. Let me know if you do test it.

RC1 Compatibility

This mod IL hooks RoR2.SceneDirector.PopulateScene.
The release of this update should coincide with the release of a new Bepinex version, so this section should be moot.


  • 2.1.0 Removed explicit BiggerLockbox compatibility. Added Config. Deprecated it. Was a wild ride.
  • 2.0.0 Now uses an IL Hook to prevent unwanted sideeffects from occuring.
  • 1.1.0 Fixed Nullreference exception that could happen when entering a special stage such as the Bazaar between time.
  • 1.0.1 Updated Readme as it was unclear.
  • 1.0.0 Release!
