Wire Shortcuts X

Completely stripped back alternative to Wire Shortcuts and Wire Shortcut Lite, made because neither of them had the exact feature set that I wanted.

Features

  • A single shortcut button (or Alt + W) that gives you a wire in hand (automatically selects the last wire type used)
  • Press the button again (or Alt + W) to switch between red/green wires
  • Second shortcut button (or Alt + C) that gives you a copper cable
  • Works in map mode, so designed to work with Remote Configuration
  • Doesn't modify wire items or recipes, so vanilla usage is unchanged (except that placing a wire no longer consumes an item)
  • Configurable number of shortcut buttons
    • One: Separate copper cable button removed, instead copper cable is added to the wire cycle
    • Two (default): One combined shortcut button for red and green wires, one for only copper cable
    • Three: Each wire/cable has its own shortcut button, Alt + W still cycles between all wires/cables but has no button
