Improved Asset Icons (alternative)

This is an alternative version of the Improved Asset Icons mod.

Original mod:

I take no credit for this mod. I only made minor changes. All credit goes to FrF, the original creator.

I thought that the Improved Asset Icons mod was one of the best and most simple mods on the workshop. Missing asset icons were really frustrating. And this mod actually helps to fix that.

Unfortunately, the mod also removed icons of mods that were working properly before. This really bothered me so I tried to fix this problem myself.

The original mod also tries to fix the ugly dark-blue focus icon of existing asset icons. In some rare cases something goes wrong while patching an existing icon. Maybe they are incompatible? Or there is some other problem? I'm actually not a modder, so I have no clue (for now).

In this version I made sure that the mod will skip any assets if there is already an icon available. This brought back all the icons that the mod removed and still replaces missing icons with workshop previews.

This also means that all these skipped icons will have the ugly dark-blue focus... I hope that doesn't bother too many people. (if this mod is still used at all)

If you had no problems with the original mod, just use that one. There is no reason to use this version in that case.

If you used the original before this one. Everything worked fine. If you skipped the original and went for this version first. It would not work. Aparently I messed up originally, but because both mods access the same resources in the cache or something it was not a problem. This is now fixed. I only noticed myself after playing the game with mods on a different computer...

Installed the AssetsLists mod. Both mods work for me, I even have updated icons in the AssetsLists mod. So I'm still unsure about what is wrong. Also not sure what the error message means in this case. The only thing I can say at the moment is to try and unsub/resub to both mods.

I did test only with a few assets though. I don't want to wait for my whole collection to load every time I want to test. I hope the numer of assets is not related.

As for not every asset getting an icon. Let me know which asset that is.

I think i´ve found the conflicting mod... It seems that the "AssetsLists"-Mod are conflicting with your mod. i´ve disabled the AssetsList Mod and your mod generates the most of the missing icons.. But not every asset has become an icon (sorry for my english...)

Don´t know which mod are conflicting with your´s... Maybe this help:

Can't seem to replicate that problem... Maybe you installed a conflicting mod? Or something else? If so I would really like to know what the cause is. I am willing in looking into this, but only if I can clearly see what problem needs to be fixed. Not planning to update anything as long as it seems to work fine for me. It was kind of a personal project after all.

If, with someones instructions, I manage to break the mod for me. Then I will try my best to fix it again

Thank you, I prefer this as the original has some side effects. !
