Description
Idle RC Explorers automatically move to discovered anomalies and research them.

Sagan compatible. Note though that the Sagan update introduced Rover AI similar to this mod, but unlike this mod, it requires research to become available.

The Explorer's Info Panel features an "Auto Explore" section that can be toggled on. In addition, each rover can be limited to certain types of anomalies via toggle buttons.

If ModConfig (Old or Reborn) is installed, the status notifications can be disabled in the Mod Config Menu.

The rover doesn't try to get to unreachable anomalies anymore and contains some elaborate custom path management so that it uses tunnels to get to its destination across maps and zones.

The old ModConfig doesn't work with the Gagarin Update, you need ModConfig Reborn:

and disable the old ModConfig. It is an optional dependency to my mods.

@MrShaw, how and since when? Do you have the Space Race DLC beta by any chance? I'm not in the beta and I have no idea what they change.

Updated all my mods to fix the thread-reload issue.

So, I think I found out where that lag people have mentioned comes from. In AutoExploreScript.lua line 23 you have a CreateGameTimeThread.

Game time threads are persistent, so each time the save is loaded it adds another thread.

Easiest way around it is to store a persistent reference to the thread.

Updated. I removed all battery related logic.

It's been added to the base game (they locked it behind Robotics\Rover Command AI)
