Automatic Doors

Makes all doors open and close automatically!

Last update: v3.5 -big code rewrite by bk3k, check the changelogs for details

You come home from a hard and hefty farming day, and then there is it. The door. Doesn't it bother you to ever press that E button open it? Fear no more, citizen, for convenience is here!

This mod makes all doors in the game (all that rely onto doors.lua actually) automatic. This means you'll be able to just walk straight forward against a door and it will open and close without your consent!
Though you should probably be careful when there are monsters at your door, as you will open the door now when you come too close...
It also open automatically ONLY for players, NPCs still have to use doors manually and monsters still can't open them.
Though NPCs also close the doors automatically behind them now, which means that you no longer have to worry that monsters might slip into your house! (Though it is not 100% foolproof if a monster stands right next to the door when the NPC opens it)
Doors should also behave as normal doors when they are locked or wired, wiring a door disables automatic mode while dewiring one enables it again.
If a door behaves funky after you downloaded a new version, walk through it and away from it once and see that the NPCs do the same, also be sure to reload your game!

In case of issues: If you are getting stuck, like in a mission, you can open the chat and type "/admin" followed by "/settileprotection 0 false". This allows you to destroy blocks. Set it to true again after you got through the faulty door so you don't lose the experience. And report the issue to me :)

It is highly recommended that you use the Enemies aren't stupid! mod:
It revamps NPC AI so they can actually use horizontal doors without getting stuck in a loop. Most issues regarding NPC's can be solved by using this mod!

Also if you recognize any bugs, or have any wishes or future ideas, please feel free to report them to me (us rather), I will try to fix them then.

@Bee Movie Memes There is, but it requires coding knowledge, check the other comments or the official forums.

Is there away to only make npcs close doors?

Unsubscribe and resubscribe. Somehow it didn't load. Or you're playing on a server without this.

The Outpost doors are wired to sensors. They aren't actually automatic.

It will close doors they've opened, yes.

Does this work for NPCs? 'Cause I have no problem opening/closing the doors myself. It's my idiot tenants who open the door during a thunderstorm and not close it, so my castle ends up flooded in the lower levels!

@bk3000 Feel free to make changes and additions, as long as they don't break anything I will add them. Personally I have no time at the moment working on it sadly.
