A method for placing entities without consuming the item

Post by Raiguard »

I would like to request a way to avoid consuming an item when placing an entity with it. That's it!

The reason is I am investigating using dummy entities combined with a selection tool for my Tapeline mod, instead of using capsules (which cannot be used on the map view). Right now, I have to manually re-set the player's cursor with a new item whenever they place the invisible entity, which is a pain. Having some way to prevent consuming the item when placed would save a lot of time and complexity.

Thanks!
Don't forget, you're here forever.
