Galaxy Map QoL

Avorion: 0.31 - 2.0
Improves Galaxy Map UI to provide more info. Allows to mark sectors with icons.

This is a client-side mod. You can install it on server for more features and to make all players automatically download it.

NOTE: This mod will be updated to the stable versions only. I'm not planning to support Beta-versions since they come out very often and I don't have the time to check and update mods every time.

Source code[github.com]

  • Displays distance to the center when you hover a sector.
  • Adds toggleable display of resource and boss ranges.
  • Allows to mark sectors with icons. If the mod is installed on a server, you will be able to add alliance icons that will be synced between alliance members.
  • Displays hazard zone marks (if the mod is installed on a server)
  • Adds a checkbox that locks radar blips allowing you to see them constantly and not just during the "scanning wave" animation

Installation (additional steps)
You can this mod in singleplayer without any additional actions.
However, if you want to use while playing on someone's server, please ask the server owner to do one of the following things:
  • Install the mod on their server (this will unlock additional features)
  • OR allow players to use it:
    1. Create "modconfig.lua" in the server galaxy folder (Instruction[avorion.gamepedia.com])
    2. Add "allowed" table in the file, if it doesn't exist:
      allowed = { }
    3. Add "{id = "1722652757"}," and "{id = "1765619430"}," in the "allowed" table:
      allowed = { {id = "SomeOtherMod"}, {id = "1722652757"}, {id = "1765619430"}, }

How to create your own icon pack

Ran into an issue using a Linux Server host.
Was getting an error were it could not find the galaxymapqol.lua, right now looking at the server console, its looking for GalaxyMapQoL.lua

GalaxyMapQoL.lua != galaxymapqol.lua

Had to rename the file in the content folder of the mod then it was happy.

I am not sure it is still working, tho then again first time trying it, and I am using Xavorions extended mods to try those out. Thought this mod was not going to conflict and I have heard so much about it.

Will continue to check.

Mod works fine, if it isn't working for you, you might have a conflicting mod installed.

@Surr3alD3sign Update it yourself if you're gonna be a prick, people aren't payed to do this stuff.

bro for the love of god please update the god damn mod, this is the ONLY mod that provides features such as boss and material ranges which are borderline mandatory to enjoy the game

Once you place one the custom icons down you can't ever add or remove another icon via the mod itself. Damn the mod is really toasted.

Anyone have a fixed version? Mostly one that fixes the QOL Button to hide the interface? Kind of messy.
