A small mod allowing module placement into multiple machines with just a single selection.
How repetitive and boring is it to place the CORRECT set of modules into multiple machines of your factory?
Even more annoying having to switch modules? (Say, when upgrades are avaliable...)
Even way more annoying to keep modules in OCD order on bots building? (When multiple module types used.)
This mod will greatly simplify the workload in above situations!
The module placement feature can be activated by either hotkey (default: Alt + M) or shortcut. The "Module Placement" GUI will then be popped up (or hidden on second click).
On the "Module Placement" GUI, users can choose and setup types of machines, and desired sets of modules to be placed in them.
"Primary" is the first set of modules being attempted to be placed in. This should be the module set that you primarily want.
"Secondary" is the second set of modules being attempted to be placed in, and is used only if it has failed to place the Primary set (e.g., productivity modules on non-intermediate recipes).
Tips 1: If only vanilla speed modules and efficiency modules are desired, put them in Primary set. The Secondary set would then be irrelevant.
Tips 2: Vanilla productivity modules should only be in Primary set; then apply only speed modules and efficiency modules in the Secondary set as "backup" (as above screenshot.) This will allow quick and smart placement to recipes that may support productivity modules.
When activated by the same hotkey or shortcut, or by clicking the fourth and green button on "Module Placement" GUI, the cursor stack will change to the selection tool. Use the selection tool on entity machines (similar to vanilla upgrade planner) will then attempt to place the modules into those selected, as what you have set in the above step.
Machine types NOT set in the GUI will be skipped from any changes.
Introduced from 0.18.2 / 1.0.2 / 1.1.2 onwards, newly built machines can also be automatically placed with modules, according to what you have set on the GUI. This works even if the GUI is closed! So you simply have to tune the settings ONCE and then forget. The module settings will work like the default for the rest of your game.
Note that this will not apply on ghost building (e.g., from blueprints, copy-and-paste), as users would want the copies to be identical to their source instead.
Similar to module placement BUT holding shift key at the same time, will remove any modules from the selected entity machines.
Like any other items, the selection tool can be dismissed with the clear cursor hotkey (default: Q).
This mod do not modify the existing content in the save game. This mod should be safe to be disabled/uninstalled at any time.
- Schall Modules introduces a few tweaks on modules, together with a powerful set of mutlicomponent modules.
- Schall Entity Inspector has a direct and clean ingame GUI, to display production rates of various machines (including most machines of this mod). Speed and productivity effects from modules and beacons are also supported.
This mod should be compatible with any modded modules.
This mod should, in principle, be compatible with any modded machines, unless they are compound entities and relying on script to apply module effects.
