find small patches

Post by napouser »

hello

some times i find tiny patches of ore somewhere inside my base
something ridiculusly small like 2 patches with 500 ore total (can become 20000 tho due to productivity)

is there an easy way to spot these like some F4 indicator or a mod or something?

halp

thanks

Couple mods that adds map labels for resources:
  • Resource Labels Updated - This one requires a key combo press and creates the map labels on demand. CTRL SHIFT+G to create, CTRL SHIFT+H to clear.
  • Resource Map Label Marker - This one creates them automatically. I'm not sure how it will behave on a pre-existing save (never tried it in that way).

Double check the mod settings for both. They may have minimum patch size detection settings.

Blah... just realized I put the wrong controls for one of those mods in my post. Corrected. Should've been SHIFT, not CTRL.
