[0.95.1a-rc6] Filter Hullmods
« on: September 16, 2022, 08:22:50 AM »

^click here to download!^
requires lazylib
Adds a small selection of hullmods that can be used to filter weapons based on certain characteristics.
(no demo gif yet because I'm lazy and the mod's simple)
Current filters -
  • Damage type
  • Range
  • PD / Non-PD
  • Beam / Projectile
See the mod's settings.json to change the bands for short range and long range, midrange falls between the two

Known issues / potential questions
  • "I added the hullmod and now my ship is 10k+ op over the max, help!" - this is a limitation with how the game handles unequippable weapons (if a weapon's op cost is above 10k it can't be equipped & won't show up in the list), unfortunately it can't be fixed by me
    • you can fix this by either removing the "filter main" hullmod or removing the weapon(s) that don't fit with the current filters that you have selected
  • "Why isn't there a filter for X" - Because I don't want too many & couldn't really be bothered to make more, if there's demand for more filters I'll add them later
maybe todo later
  • add a description to the main hullmod that breaks down the current filters
  • get nice icons for the filters
  • add a set of filters for wings
Special thanks to rubi / rustyCabbage / asyndeticaly for giving me the idea & reminding me that this is even possible!

How do you use the mod? Clicking on the main filter mod does nothing for me.

making only the "Filter" hullmod category show will make it more obvious, but after that you need to add (or remove, can't remember if I made it add them all by default) "filter param" hullmods till you've got what you want

Does it apply to the dozens hullmods from mods?

Mh I tried and nothing in the filter category is clickable. The filter params are not selectable and the filter main is not doing anything. Could there be mod incompatibilities causing this? I will try deactivating some mods and try again.

no, it just applies to weapons

hmmm, very odd
can't think of why there'd be a mod incompatibility, but when you add the "main" hullmod it should add all the others & make them selectable (they rely on the main hullmod being added because they do nothing otherwise)

Start a new game! Then it will work.

Hi! The index damage\per second is more important than just the damage!

I'll be doing an update soontm & adding some extra filters (and some anti-cheat measures (and lunalib integration)), rof was already on the ideas pile so I'll add per-hit damage & DPS to the mod as well, ty for the suggestion!
