Hmm you mean like in CS/COP, where you can hold one in the hands? I misunderstood your first post then...
Huh? no i dont mean.
You still off the point ExoStalker. Shadow is looking for a "simple" thing which turns out to be really complicated. It is not about the detector showing in your hand.
Some mods require from you to place the detector on the belt in order to start detecting anomalies. In this cases the icons of the detectors do not add to the line at the bottom of the HUD showing the artefacts you have on the belt. In the personal inventory UI arts and devices are stacked together OK in the "belt", but the ingame HUD shows only artefacts.
Shadow is currently implementing detectors that work only when put on the belt. The problem is to make their icons appear on the game HUD by the side of the equipped artefact icons. It sounds simple, but it isn't. I've a vague idea of some russian mod doing it, but can't pinpoint which
yes this is what i mean, thank you for explaining it simply Zagar.
The russian BioRadar mod has the device show up on the belt next to the artifacts.
The BioRadar itself is an artifact, and the scripts handle it's behavior as a device, I think.
Search the AMK forums.
OGSE has this bioradar. the bioradar is class = ARTEFACT which is why it's icon shows on the HUD. the bioradar is is not a detector. in OGSE the vanilla detector's icons do not show on the HUD, even when attached to the belt.
The mod I posted has detectors shown on the HUD once they are on the belt. Just on the other side of the screen, artifacts are in the left and detector icons are in the right near health.
thats correct, it does, which i meantioned in my last post about your mod. and that is what im looking for. however, your mod is very complicated and that one simple feature is buried under huge stacks of complex scripts.
maybe an elite scripter will be able to find just that code and extract it and use it as a starting point for what im after, but im am not that scripter.
again, this is why im asking the community if there is any scripter out there who is willing / able to make this simple request for me.
thank you all again, shadow.
