Remote Configuration


Allows the player to configure any machine from the map, without allowing item transfer so it maintains the vanilla feel. Allows wire placement and entity settings copy/paste at any distance. Press R to issue a rotation request, right-click to mark for deconstruction. Less cheaty alternative to Far Reach. Similar to Space Exploration's Navigation Satellite, but works entirely within map view.

Remote Configuration allows you to click on any machine in map view and open its GUI. While the GUI is open, you can change configurations (e.g. combinator signals, chest limits, spidertron logistic requests) but you can't transfer any items. Since you need to be able to select the machines, radar coverage is required.

Also allows red/green wire and copper cable placement and entity settings copy/paste in map view.

Press R over a machine to create a rotation request for it (or Shift + R for reverse rotation). Assembling machines are rotated instantly because that's what vanilla does when you paste a blueprint with a rotated machine on top of an existing one. For other entity types, a construction bot must come and rotate them.

Right-click on a machine to mark it for deconstruction. Shift + Right-click to cancel deconstruction.

Attempting to build in map view replaces the item in cursor with a ghost so that you don't have to hold Shift. When building after exiting map view, the ghost cursor is replaced with a real item again. This can be disabled in mod settings. (This feature doesn't work if "Automatic ghost cursor" from Cursor Enhancements is enabled).

All interactions can be disabled by removing their keybind in Settings > Controls. There is a setting in mod settings to additionally enable these interactions when not in map mode, but when trying to do something out of range.

Compatibility

  • Compatible with any mod, including Far Reach
  • Works with Space Exploration, although functionality is mostly superseded by SE's Navigation Satellite, which also works cross-surface
  • Recommended with Wire Shortcuts X or Wire Shortcuts for long distance wire connections
  • Utilises vanilla's permissions system, so may break if you aren't using the Default permissions group. Let me know if you'd like me to improve the interactions in this area
