Description
The very last grapple mod you're going to need! Infinite ammo and durability! Faster! And no grapple bug!

Source
https://github.com/LaoArchAngel/TheLastGrapple

What It Does
Provides a new crossbow (Grapple XBow) used solely for grappling. It has a configurable length, pull, and drop speed. It has unlimited ammo and shoots faster. Furthermore, it is immune to the "grapple bug".

Features
  • Clean and completely stackable.
  • Grapple XBow has unlimited durability.
  • Unlimited grapple ammo.
  • Configurable max rope length.
  • Configurable pull speed / strength. Set this high enough, pull yourself to the ground, and kill yourself, parachute be damned! :D
  • Configurable drop speed. For those who want a little more granual control of how far you drop with a click of the right-mouse button!

The Grapple Bug / Glitch
One of the most annoying issues with most other infinite-ammo, fast-action grapple guns or crossbows came when it was accidentally (or due to lag) shot twice in quick succession. This, at first, would cause no issue. However, if the shooter were to get on a dino and rode far enough away from where the grapple hit (usually render distance), their screen would immediately start "jumping" back and forth, as if being pulled by the grapple. Hitting "C" would provide immediate relief, but the bug would re-appear the next time they got off their dino far enough away from the grapple. One available, more permanent solution was to use beds to teleport from one place to another (usually two beds side by side). This would clear the glitch. At least until they shot the grapple twice in quick succession again.

Configuration
RopeLength :: Float. Multiplies the default rope length. Default is 1.0.
PullSpeed :: Float. Multiplies the default pull speed / force. Beware! Set this too high and it WILL kill you when pulling down.. Default is 1.0. About 1.5 - 2.0 is nice.
DropSpeed :: Float. Multiplies the default drop speed. Default is 1.0. I like 0.5.
GrappleSpeed :: Float. Multiplies the default speed of the grapple projectile. Default is 1.0. I like 1.5.
[LastGrapple] RopeLength=1.5 PullSpeed=1.5 DropSpeed=0.5 GrappleSpeed=2.5

Is this mods data files called "ProjGrapHook"?

I love grapples. I feel like Lara Croft using this mod, lol. Thanks!

Combined with the wingsuit, I feel like Batman with this mod! I love it! Any chance you could make it also work with ziplines so I don't have to carry 2 crossbows? Crossbows plus the wingsuit and zipline harness starts adding up in weight, and I'm always looking to trim the weight on my deployment gear.

So thios has clearly proven its worth as the one time this mod fell off the mod list for the server my friend hosts, we immediately added it back in.
Still, could you do a zipline mod to make that better too, or is there not really anything you can do to increase the length of that?
Fun fact, the distance a zipline anchor will fly is only measured horizontally, not vertically, so you can zip down twice as far as you can zip along when at the range limit

Hey @Lao, is there any chance to get option or just implement (function?) that we can attach to allied players/structures ?
Vokun Vulon Feb 16 @ 2:21pm 
yeah we accounted for that, but it still seems to lock shorter than what the structure render distance is (not natural world as that renders further away) but yeah, both the grapple and the zipline feel like they should be able to fly much further
