So, I decided that I'd create a cattails save that I can copy+paste, one where I've completed the main quest (but haven't added the last jewel), got all of my skills to max, got every skin and every accessory, every den upgrade and every rare item. Basically, a completed game all aside from kits and a mate, so I can live different kitty lives without the tedious work of getting everything over and over again. However, I have unfortunately reached some roadblocks and limits (mainly with unobtainable skins and sheer laziness). I looked elsewhere on the proboards but didn't find much on these matters, so I decided to make this thread!
So, I'd like some help with editing saves, stuff like getting skill points and mole cash and even skins if possible, but there's one problem. I'm an idiot.
I don't know how to even get into the code of my saves let alone how to edit them properly (I have two back-up saves for safety)
Any helps/tips would be greatly appreciated (aside from, of course, the pelts part, as I've heard we musn't speak of such things)!
I'm as lazy as you are xD. To get into the save files, I type Cattails_Save into the search bar of File Explorer, you can also type %LOCALAPPDATA% if that doesn't work. If it doesn't show a growing green bar as its loading then you used the wrong search bar(yes there are two for some reason).
As for the editing I can give you some basic instructions, if you want me to actually make the edited file for you that will take about 5-10 more minutes but I gtg to school really soon so I may reply late. I have no time to do the editing now.
1. "MA==" usually means something is not done ie player is not married 2. "MQ==" usually means something IS done ie player is married 3. "MTAwMA==" always means something is at max ie max level for a skill
so for accessories: put MQ== in all the quotation marks instead of MA==. for skills: put MQ== in the "skill is unlocked" thing and "MTAwMA==" in the "skill rank" thing. for den upgrades: same as accessories
I cannot edit for pelts, haven't figured that one out yet, or items, but I can edit for Main Quest. Just ask, and when I get home from school I will help you out.
Just put the codes into a Base64 decoder, that will tell you what each code means. For example, ‘MQ==‘ would be 1 and ‘MA==‘ would be 0. (In binary for coding, ‘yes’ and ‘no’.) Lets you change names without having to wait for Eli or to keep the 25 Mews if you’re saving up but need that name changed.

Thanks, guys! These have been super helpful! Unfortunately my problem now is that I can't find my saves and the such anywhere. I've tried searching Cattails_Save and %LOCALAPPDATA% just about everywhere I can think of, but all I can find is this (and the _CommonRedist file opens up into a bunch of empty files). i.imgur.com/n9DebDP.png
The path for me (on Windows 10) is "Windows (C:) > Users > [name] > AppData > Local > Cattails". AppData, however, is a hidden folder. There is a way to show them, though. Go in the windows search bar and type "Show hidden files and folders". Click the option that pops up and a section of the control panel will open. Make sure you're scrolled up to the top, and there will be a little folder icon labelled "hidden files and folders". There will be bubbles by two options: don't show and show. Select show and click OK. Go to the path mentioned above. Now, AppData will show among the other folders under [name]. Hope this helps! Feel free to ask me if you're confused about something.

for some reason, each save file stores some things differently :( probably to keep us from doing bad things/exposing the pelts section. for mews and pelts and stuff are the ones that wont use the format youre using and using somebody else's code for it will ruin your save !!

Oh dear, really? Well, I've tested out the format I was given and it works, so I guess I got lucky! Thanks for the heads-up, though, I'll make sure to pass it on!
If I'm ever asking for help, explain it to me as if you were explaining something to a five-year-old, for I am not smart. Thank you.
