Sandbox scenario still has a player character

Post by Tinyboss »

I get the "god mode" message, and an option for a starting chest and all techs, but I still have a player character instead of being, you know, omniscient. I'm on 11.3, I'm selecting base/sandbox from Custom Scenario, and no mods.

Confirmed.
Possible intentional change by the devs in response to too many complaints about not being able to use equipment or something in sandbox? (They listened to the vocal minority if that's the case.:()

Is/was there a mode where I could just put down anything I want where I want? Where I can instantly craft anything without needing ingredients?

No. But there is the Test Mode mod that makes cheating in items a lot easier.

it was changed (as i just typed to you in the other thread) because if i recall correctly, because the multiplayer update broke the godmode controller

Well, on the flipside of this, I think I recall seeing a LUA routine that could remove the player character, creating a god-mode.
Was in a thread about controlling the camera.

/c game.player.character=nil

or

/c c = game.player.character; game.player.character=nil ; c.destroy()

I'll have a look on the sadbox problem.

I kinda liked have a player, somehow.
Mind adding a toggle-able option ?

A player-enabled sandbox is almost identical to freeplay, minus the initial cheat prompts.
There are plenty of resources on cheating (the wiki is best), and an entire mod dedicated to giving you things to make your test builds (test mod).
