Make moving objekts acceppt Power from The Grid

Post by Xerrass » Thu Oct 15, 2015 10:17 am

Hey folks here is my idea for a cooler modding expirience.

i am curently running into an error with a mod i write i found many dirty Workarounds but the solution looks for me not so difficoult to accomplish.

curently im trying to get electric mooving objekts like trains and Cars i got sofar that the train runs of electricity like this:
http://prnt.sc/8r4xft

so is it posibal to let moving objekts add to the powergrid if they are stoping on a powered area ?

so we moders dont have to do dirty workarounds with proxy objekts gost obejekts and other stuff.

I am not surprised that you tried dirty workarounds.

Yes, electric trains that take power from the grid would be nice. I think I've made similar progress. Does it still crash when you look at the train's inventory? (Where you would normally add fuel)

yeah and again we want a moving object to be part of the power network so question is it posibal to implement something into the codebase something like an interface wich will conect this item to the power network when it stands still ?
