Spidertron Enhancements

Some simple features to make your life easier whilst using a spidertron. All features can be turned on or off individually.

Enter vehicles from spidertron

Press Enter or U near a vehicle whilst riding a spidertron to enter the vehicle.

Quick toggle spidertron

Press U to exit or re-enter the spidertron.

Spidertron remote pipette

Press Shift + Q whilst hovering your cursor over a spidertron to select a remote from your inventory connected to that spidertron.

Open vehicle inventories directly

Press Shift + E whilst in a vehicle (not just a spidertron!) to open its inventory.

Spidertron inventory sort

Spidertron inventories are automatically sorted just like the player's.

No item loss

A spidertron's items are spilled on the ground instead of being lost when it dies.

Known Bugs / Limitations

  • Spidertron equipment grids and logistics cannot function whilst the spidertron is not active
  • Compatibility with Spidertron Weapon Switcher is a little unstable. It will work for the vast majority of the time, but there is the possibility of a crash, so please ensure that you are saving regularly if using these mods together. Ammo placed in an inactive weapon's slots will be lost when you enter a vehicle or quick toggle with a spidertron from this mod.
