WHAT THIS MOD DO:
Normally, when you try to warp your freighter in a system where another’s player freighter is present, the game prevents it with the message “Other players freighter already present”. What this mod does is remove that restriction.
It does that by modifying the file GCDEBUGOPTIONS.GLOBAL.MBIN (so it will conflict with any mod that already modifies it). The only change that this mod does on that file is changing the flag for MultiplePlayerFreightersInASystem from false to true.
It does the same as this one but for the latest version of the game.
Just to be sure, make a backup of your savefile before trying this mod.
If you have this mod and other people in your party doesn’t, the other players will still be able to see and visit your freighter like normal, even if another player’s freighter is already present in the system.
Only the players with this mod installed will be able to override the freighter limit in a system. Take this into account if you plan to play with people that doesn’t have it. For example, if you’re playing with a friend, and you have the mod and your friend doesn’t, if you warp your freighter first inside a system, your friend will not be able to warp theirs. In that case, I would recommend that your friend warp their freighter first and then you, but taking into account that, after your freighter arrives at the system, your friend will not be able to move or warp again theirs.
You’re on a community planet, very cool!
But your HUD is cluttered with all these icons from other players. You can’t even see your own base icon anymore.
This simple mod helps to reduce the clutter on your screen from the icons so you don’t have to disable your HUD when on a planet with a lot of people.
This mod edits:
This mod changes GCDEBUGOPTIONS.GLOBAL and anything that modifies that file will be incompatible with this modification.
This tweak allows you to spawn your freighter in a system with other player freighters in the system. This tweak has been tested with two freighters but I do believe it should work on more than that.
- My friend doesn’t have this mod, can I still warp multiple freighters in the system?
- Yes! To do this through your friend must load their freighter in first then you can drop yours down!
This simple mod will enhance your intelligence to remind you that mods, in fact, work in multiplayer.
Next time when you have the sudden urge to ask if a certain mod would work in multiplayer, simply install this mod, run the game, and read the title screen to enhance your intelligence by 1 and forego the need to ask a question already answered a million times.
Now fixed and working !
First proof of concept !
Combines the multiplayer player orb with an astronaut player model (with laser sword and shield). It’s a static model without animations, but still cool.
This is actually a model made by Hello Games that was hidden in the game files since version 1.0. It doesn’t look overwhelming and is more to be considered as a Hello Games mascot 😉
