When using a mod like DoubleReach or LongReach, you can set different distances for placing a building/belt versus mining and cutting down trees. Mining and cutting down trees from 400% away seems out of place. An option to keep those default would be nice. In the mean time, I just deleted the mining distance bonus line in control.lua and that seemed to do it.

The inserter on your back can take your drill and mine ore for you. :lol:
I will add an option for this anyway. Thanks for the suggestion. ;)

Re: [MOD 0.14+] Long Reach Research 0.1.2

Post by Mooncat »

Released v0.1.2. Added config.lua with the following options:
apply_to_mining_distance (default = true)
apply_to_item_drop_distance (default = true)
apply_to_item_pickup_distance (default = false)
apply_to_loot_pickup_distance (default = false)

Also, it turns out I was using the wrong base value for mining distance. It has been fixed.

And reduced the overall file size (from 76KB to 28KB) by compressing the images. :D

Re: [MOD 0.14+] Long Reach Research & More

Post by Mooncat »

Just released v0.2.0 of Long Reach Research. :D

A big overhaul on the mod. Its functionalities are separated into different follow-up mods. No more config.lua is needed. Just choose the mods according to what you want. :lol:
See the updated OP for details.

Just knew there is the "upgrade" attribute for technologies that can group the technologies into categories, such that only one level is shown at a time.
Therefore, released a small patch for this. :P

If using command is an option, please type these:

Code: Select all

/c game.player.force.character_build_distance_bonus = 0
/c game.player.force.character_item_drop_distance_bonus = 0
/c game.player.force.character_reach_distance_bonus = 0
/c game.player.force.character_resource_reach_distance_bonus = 0
/c game.player.force.character_item_pickup_distance_bonus = 0
/c game.player.force.character_loot_pickup_distance_bonus = 0
All distance bonuses will be reset.

I will also make a mod to reset them without command.

I can kinda train myself to a certain reach distance, but variable distance...

Doesn't the game has support for showing a range circle? (turrets?)

For loot/pickup holding shift+f could draw circles for those two (hopefully when both is active, it would resulted in the overlap blending the two circle.

I think Long Build/Mine would work best with a on/off button for showing reach, like alt changes certain things.

It is a good idea! Unfortunately, I don't think it is possible with the current API. The circular range indicator is only supported on turrets, and it is done internally. There is simply no API for us to show turret range without having the actual turret item or entity. I will investigate on the possibility, but it won't be in 0.14.

Edit: I forgot the capsules. They also have circular range indicator. But it still requires you to have the item on your cursor. So it is not feasible.

Yes. But I need some more time.
I'm planning to add infinite levels on long-reach, long-build and long-mine. :)

Would that make sense though? I mean, you can only zoom out so far, reaching longer than the camera will show you yield no benefit, no?

Well in .15 you can open your map and zoom in anywhere. If you have the reach for it you can build etc :P

Lol, you would never have to move :P. That should be a custom achievement of some kind. Launch a rocket without moving :P

Updated the mods. Feel like a smart ass now because I refactored the code so well that all 5 technologies are monitored by just one main function now, with some remote interfaces. 8-)

Anyway, I will update the post and images some hours later.

Edit: done.

What is the difference between Pickup and Loot?

Is Pickup used when you press "F" to get items on the ground?

IS Loot the Automatic picking up of Alien Artifacts as you run around?
If so, since Alien Artifacts have been removed from the game, what does loot do now?
