Find It!

Find your assets in game (very) quickly.

Basically a better Search Box mod with instantaneous results as you type.

- Click on the magnifying glass icon at the bottom right of the screen or press Ctrl + F to open the search window
- Type some keywords
- Selected the desired item
- Profit

How it works
The mod scans all the assets and generate a database of tags based on the title, the description, the service and the author of the asset. During the search, a score is evaluated based on a comparison with the keywords typed and the asset tags. All assets with a score greater than zero are sorted and displayed into the list.

The mod also generate the missing thumbnails icons by rendering the main mesh of the asset. Big thanks to FrF for sharing his code generating all the icons variants (hovered, pressed, etc..).

The mod also replace the part of the UI that displays the items with a more efficient version. This can lead to incompatibilities with other mods.

Known incompatible mods:
- Search Box mod (I don't think you will need it anymore)
- Extended Toolbar

Planned features
- Filters
- Asset editor support
- Custom tags: set your own tags (local)
- Custom creator tags: words starting with # in the asset description will be considered as creator tags and therefor have a higher search score

Source code
This mod uses detours C# library[] by cope.

Asset editor support will be amazing ... especially if it searches all the vanilla asset that are not normally available ... like road arrows and airport light ... cant wait

That did it for me! Thanks a lot for the update.

@BillyShabindigo Thanks for the report. I have been able to find and fix the issue. Asset names with an underscore weren't properly registered.

Sorry. The Parker Loft example is in the third picture, not the first.
BillyShabindigo Jan 19 @ 5:01pm 
Sure. Please check out this Dropbox link:

For instance, Feinbild's Brooklyn and Manhattan themes. I coverted them to RICO. They show up with "afterlight" in their name; as a matter of fact, on the old Search mod, that's how i used to search for those buildings, by typing in afterlight. Now, when I type in afterlight, it says no results. Even when i type RICO and afterlight.

I downloaded a bunch of lofts and converted them to RICO. Some, like Parker Loft, in the first picture from the RICO menu, don't show up when i search by the word "Loft"

@BillyShabindigo You should still be able to search them by name. Do you have an example of a building you cannot find by typing the name?
BillyShabindigo Jan 19 @ 3:45pm 
You were right. I have to type in RICO and they pop up. Only thing is all my other RICO stuff does, too. So, I still have to search through stacks of assets to find it. But even with that minor problem, this interface is still better to search through than using the regular RICO menu. So, I can't complain. Thanks for getting back to me and for the great mod

@BillyShabindigo Cannot reproduce. Do you have an exemple or two to give me? Do they appear if you just type 'rico'?
