Loot Crate Scanner

This small tool allows you to scan the map for all sorts of loot crates. It uses a little bit of Element Dust to resonate with the supply crates, underwater crates and even artifacts.
Press M when equipped, It will display the rarity, type and location of every found crate on the integrated map as well as in a handy list showing the coordinates and even the remaining integrity before it expires.

Select your target in the list or click on the map to place a marker that can be tracked when holding the Loot Crate Scanner in hand.

If you want to know what is inside the crate from far away, use some more Dust to scan the content.

The Scanner now can also target Element nodes.

Using a lot of Dust the Scanner can also open a wormhole next to the crate. Technically teleporting the holder to the crate.
Be carefull, if the crate is still in the air when it is scanned, the poral will also be up there.

In case you are low on element dust, it can also be used to revert Element Shards or pure Element back to Dust, but at a loss.

Now there are also stationary maps (Table and Wall) that show the crate locations and automatically update every few seconds and display the drop locations easily visible. (currently not working on the center but working on auto calibration).

Works on Single- and Multiplayer.

Loads on every map. Most map work out of the box, if the Marker position is off try auto calibrate in game. If you find maps that don\\\'t work, let me know.

Orbital Supply Drops on Extinction can not be scanned.



In the Gameusersettings.ini you can adjust the following:
[LootCrateScanner] RequiresElement=true --Can be set to false to not require Element dust. DustRequiredForMapScan=10 --How much Dust is used per map scan. DustRequiredForItemScan=25 --How much Dust is used per Content scan. AllowTeleport=false --true enables the scanner to directly teleport the user to the crate. DustRequiredForTeleport=500 --How much Dust is used per Teleport.

Doesnt seem to work on Olympus, coords are showing in mid 100s example 130, 70 or 146.1, 87.4 Was next to a loot crate and its coords were way off to what the scanner was showing?

I'll give it a try and get back to you on that one. I'm looking to add this to my cluster.

On servers it should detect every crate on the map. Because of the dynamic loading in single player some are only loaded when you enter the area. It is not possible to detect them before.
I have not tested it but I think it will also detect spawned ones.

Is it possible for your mod to detect custom placed loot crates? Not modded loot crates just regular ones but placed randomly around the map. Will it detect loot crates on land or just water? Seen your videos I noticed that it is not detecting the ones in the open on Ragnarok Desert, Also not detecting the ones in dungeons like the Ice Cave or the Life Labyrinth. Ty

For the teleport option does it also teleport your mount or only you?

Ok this is great! I was finally, for the first time in like a thousand hours on Ragnarok, find undersea loot crates. Thank you!
The only small thing I'd request is when you've selected a crate to track on the map, to show which one it is in the list on the right. It would make it much easier to add map coords before you get there. I ask because adding map coords when you get to a loot drop might be a bit tricky - last one I did had two sharks and a mosa on top of it :)
Thanks again for modding this up, it's pretty great!

Great mod! Your video really helped me understand. You should probably just quickly add that legend to the mod description, for what the icons mean.

Yes, It works on all Maps and original loot crates.
