Summary

Inventory items and grid equipment inside destroyed containers, like chests, vehicles (cars, tanks), will now spill over ground, instead of simply vanish.
Adds a hotkey to pick items on ground with adjustable pickup radius.

Introduction

Currently (up to 0.16.51), destroyed entities (except player character) will bring all their contents (both inventory and grid equipment) to void too. Accidental destroying an important chest or a vehicle full of expensive ammo may ruin your game progress for like half an hour. This situation will be no more with this mod!

This mod will take out all inventory items, from entities upon destruction, spreading them over the ground. Those items remain there for you (or anyone) to pick up! Grid equipment, if you are using vehicle grid mods like Schall Tank Platoon, are also supported. Especially fit for PvP, since you can now loot resources and equipment from enemy tanks and storage! Whether the inventory items and/or grid equipment remains (default: on) can be individually toggled under "Options" → "Mod settings" → "Map".

For convenience to pick up potentially large amount of items over the area, this mod also introduce a new hotkey (default: SHIFT-F) to pick up items on ground. Items on belts are not affected, to avoid accidental pick up of production line ingredients. The hotkey button is customizable in "Options" → "Controls" → "Mods" tab. The hotkey pick up radius (default: 32) can be adjusted under "Options" → "Mod settings" → "Per player".
