This is my attempt at re-creating E3 2015 scan pulse effect for current day NMS.
- Changed color to yellow
- Effect is now slower
Most of you should be familiar with the E3 2015 gameplay trailers, like “I’ve Seen Things” trailer, and others. The scanner pulse was yellow and slower back in the day. But for some reason, it was changed on game’s release. This mod aims to bring that effect back, but keep in mind, that this is not exactly the same thing. Although, the old 2015 shader code is still in-game, my attempts at re-storing it caused the game to be unplayable. So, i found another way of doing that, or at least very similar. And, here it is, avalible to download.
Makes every creature more common and in larger groups. All creatures are active in day and night. Takes me about 5 mins to get a planet full scan with this mod. You still have to find the biomes though. AIR/WATER/CAVES/GROUND. 2 in the air, 2 in the water, rest mostly ground, might be 1 in a cave. Enjoy!
Not compatible with other mods that modify creatures.
This mod will modify the exocraft scanner to include more options.
To scan certain structures you will need to upgrade your exocraft scanner.
The following scans can be made now:
- Crashed Ships (ScanLv 1)
- Traveller Graves (ScanLv 2)
- Crashed Freighter (ScanLv 2)
- Observatories (ScanLv 1)
- Transmission Towers (ScanLv 1)
- Manufacturing Facilities (ScanLv 1)
- Alien Shops (ScanLv 1)
- Trading Posts (ScanLv 1)
- Planet Bases (ScanLv 1)
Also, alert sounds will now be triggered when a structure is found by the scanner.
I used this mod by Tub0Crisco as reference and added some extra changes. Exocraft Scan Boost
I was not successful when I tried to add a portal scan but you can still find them using with the Monoliths.
Changes the binoculars to a sniper scope. You can zoom and shoot.
There are two files:
“Targets” changes the creature-scan-icons into tactical targets.
“Zoom Sniper” just installs the scope.
Choose one or both !
If you feel like a more fun, more challenging mode, use this mod!
This mod will turn off the ability to use your on planet scanner at all, making it a forced mode that encourages more exploration.
