Trader Loyalty Level Based Progression on PMC Bots and as of v1.1.0 now Scavs too

I present Valens-Progression which tailors PMC and Scav bots to have level specific gear tied to trader loyalty level.


For the readme see here or in the zip.


To install unzip the zip to user/mods/Valens-Progression_v1.1.0


Should be compatible with 3.2.2 and possibly 3.2.1/3.2.0


BEWARE. CURRENTLY THERE IS A BUG WHERE SCAV CASE IS BROKED. THERE IS NO TIME TABLE FOR THIS TO BE FIXED DUE TO IRL CIRCUMSTANCES. DO NOT USE THIS MOD IF YOU LOVE THE SCAVVY CASE.

  • Is this compatible with FAIT if i turn off the gear changes for it?

    • FAIT has been separated into FAIL for AI and Fin's Gear Changes afaik so you no longer should be using FAIT. Regardless, pending on which version, I'm sure it would work though you're likely going to run into some peculiar issues with FAIT.

  • So something I have noticed is that whenever I use this mod it fails to successfully add certain weapons and weapon mods to the bots. This then takes me to the issue of black screening at the end of a raid and because it fails to generate bot loadouts it rolls it back to before I started the raid so as I ALT F4, it acts like the raid never happened


    I tested this theory through process of elimination. I will update this thread with a error code if I have it.

    • happens to me as well, this is the only mod that I have that touches loadouts..

    • I am unable to reproduce with my mod set so I am at this point convinced it's a mod conflict somewhere.

  • i think the mod broke scav cases,getting this error

    note:did a good few test with and without mods and yours came up with the error,also game hangs when this happends and kinda softlocks serverwise

    • Progression doesn't touch anything in the Hideout so I fail to see how it could be Progression. Might be AIO but uh...shouldn't be Progression.


      Programming can be funky though so I'll take a stab at it and look closer just to be sure.

    • i dont have aio at all,but all i know is that with progression mod only,scav cases money choices inf loading on server,ill look into it more.

    • Any mods that added new items will broke scav case, as in my experience.

  • is it compatible with this mod I have installed its called " AI CONFIGS FOR LUA SPAWN REWORK AND FINS AI TWEAKS 2.1.1.E " Also how do I install it? I put the folder in the user\mods folder where the Lua and fins folders are but don't see it show up on server launch, I just see Fins and Lua's mods load.
    Sorry, I'm extremely new to this type of thing. mods and stuff.

    Edit: ohh nevermind I see it now lol, im dumb. it is loading up... Guess I just need to know if it is compatible?

    • Mod compatibility isn't guaranteed particularly when they change similar or the same things like FAIT changes gear and so too does Progression.


      Would need to disable gear changes on FAIT for sure. Additionally appending a z to the folder name you want to load first also works as well.

  • Hey Valens,


    With your mod ON (and just this one) the flea market gets broken: prices in dollars are always on top and while using the weapon preset to build a gun the prices are always in dollars.

    • That's an AKI issue I'm afraid, lol.

    • Fair enough :thumbup:

  • Many Errors in Raids:


    • Yep. Not a big priority to figure that out as it doesn't really affect anything other than the weapons falling back to a default preset.

    • But if this is the case with all weapons then the priority should be higher. Then I also do not need a mod if all are put back to standard! Do not misunderstand, I think the mod is certainly good. The list went even further in the raid. I will continue to watch the mod because I find the idea great.

  • Hello, love the mod, also getting the same error as lllalynishka . On 1.2, the server is crashing when setting scavProgression to false in scav.json

    • Hello @sling

      Currently there is no way to disable either PMC or Scav Progression. The boolean (true/false) for scavProgression and pmcProgression is simply to enable the ability to customize the whitelist(s) for yourself.


      If you're looking for the ability to disable scav progression then as a workaround you're able to use v1.0.1 of Valens-Progression until it is no longer working on SPT-Aki versions.


      If however, you are trying to customize the progression whitelists I have released a bugfix in v1.2.1 that should get rid of this error.

    • Ok, that makes sense. Thanks for the response

  • Hi, I like your mod, lets you feel all the delights of wipe, I used 1.0.0 and 1.1.0 but the only problem is I wanted to use progression on pmc, so I sat on 1.0.0. Now with the release of 1.2.0 were added configs for scavs and pmc separately, I wanted to separately disable progression scav changing the value from true to false, but this leads to the error provided below because of which you cannot log into the server. Changing it to default makes everything run. (i use deepl translate)

    • Thx for the response.

  • Hey. I love the idea of this mod, but sadly it won't work on my spt for some reason..

    I am a noob in modding spt tarkov, so am srry if i am just being stupit haha. I downloaded this mod and put it in "D:\Escape From Tarkov SP\user\mods" where i also have my working "Lua-SpawnRework" mod, but when i start the game and play a few rounds, i always meet pmcs with insane gear on them :/ What can i do?? I have spt-aki 3.2.2 installed. Thanks in advance <3

    • Probably best to take it to the support thread here. First question would be if you have any other mods installed besides Progression, and the Spawn Rework - like FAIT

  • Thanks for this.

    • You're welcome! :P

    • I see in the server console a bunch of errors when generating bots at the start of the level:


      Required slot 'mod_pistol_grip' on weapon_izhmash_aks74un_545x39 FirstPrimaryWeapon was empty

      Weapon 583990e32459771419544dd2 was generated incorrectly, falling back to weapon preset see error above

      Required slot 'mod_pistol_grip' on weapon_izhmash_aks74ub_545x39 FirstPrimaryWeapon was empty

      Weapon 5839a40f24597726f856b511 was generated incorrectly, falling back to weapon preset see error above


      Assume this is normal like a debug message you were using? I tried it with only your mod enabled vs all enabled and its the same.

    • That's just normal server generation stuff I do believe and is completely normal. My mod doesn't touch actual bot generation. It only touches the probabilities, and what to spawn.


      Edit: Apparently after further discussion with another user whom had the same, it appears this is actually coming from FAIT generation which Fin confirmed.

    • I got the same errors in my server console and I'm not using FAIT (nor FAIL for that matter).


      I just made a run without your progression mod and errors are gone :/

  • Hi, is 1.1.0 backwards compatible with 3.2.1?

    • Unfortunately not.

    • Was about to ask the same. That's unfortunate. Would it be a massive undertaking to make it work on 3.2.1?

    • @DeadLeaves Give it a try as I don't have a 3.2.1 install to test on atm, and can't be bothered reinstalling it tbh. @Skush as well. Let me know if it does/doesn't work.

    • @Valens I only had time for one raid I'm afraid, but the equipment for the PMCs seems to be working, I only fought one scav, so I'm not sure there. But at the end of the raid after extracting I had a blackscreen and the progress was not saved after restarting the game.

      So I guess it is not really working. But thanks for the mod still, I think I'll update to 3.2.2 soon anyway.

  • Hey, I'm loving the mod! Actually feels like early wipe now at early levels!


    Is it possible to adjust scav gear as well? I've seen scavs with tier 3/4/5 armors and almost full durability weapons, instead of cheap broken scav stuff. Maybe the scavs could scale with level like the PMCs but with a lower tier of gear as the ceiling? ie. No armor scaling up to low tier then maxing out at like tier 2/3? Could even start damaged. :/

    • Scavs are in for v1.1

  • Hey Valens. Cool mod, but I have some questions.


    Let's say I disable gear changes inside of FAIT. Would that ensure that this mod works alongside it?


    Second, does this touch weapon generation in any way?

    • 1.) No clue, I don't use FAIT and I don't test for mod compatibility.


      2.) Doesn't generate weapons, whatsoever.

  • does this mod work with samswats famas and l85a2 mods?

    • No clue, I don't test for mod compatibility.

    • If you mean will it add the FAMAS and L85A2 to the lists, then no not at this time.

      Thumbs Up 1
  • thanks for the update.
    this mod goes 100% on must have mod list.

  • Works great now, thank you!!

  • Is this compatible with FAIL/FAIT's gear progression or will it break?

    • Not compatible.

  • This mod causes immediate crash on startup of the server. Does not throw an error, just outright crashes it.

    • Me too. Hard crash with no errors or logs of any kind.

  • too bad it crashes on startup :( been waiting for this kind of mod for a long time

  • Yes, the server crashes on startup. The error is due to logger.ts trying to import a config file (which contains only the function for debugging) that is not in the mod

    • kekw, thanks for catching that. I'll issue a fix.

  • conflicts with your AIO mod causing crash server

  • This mod is exactly what I've been looking for.

  • excuse, The moment the server starts it crashes.

  • Great idea. Goin to try it out right now.

  • The online feeling you're looking for

    No scavs spawning with scar's at lvl 1, this coupled with a mod to change the names and you forget you're offline!

    Love it :D

  • Satisfying

    why u lookin at reviews boy? just download this shit and slaaap it in yo'spt

  • Good gear scaling

    Great mod to keep all bot gear reasonable through the whole leveling experience.
    Strongly recommend this!
