Instant Projector

This mod adds the ability for projector blocks to create projections instantly. The grid will spawn as if you welded each individual block of the projection and only after the build timer has elapsed. The projection must not be connected to the projector block grid, and the projection must have a significant amount of space around it. In survival, the projector must have enough components to weld the entire projection, and it will take the components from any or all inventories on the grid. The components must be available before the build timer can be started.

World Settings
Admins can configure world settings via the text hud api admin menu or the /ip command.
  • Block Build Time - Amount of seconds per block.
  • Component Cost Modifier - Modifies the amount of components required to build a projection.
  • Min Blocks - The minimum number of blocks that are required to build a projection.
  • Max Blocks - The maximum number of blocks allowed to build.
  • Power Modifier - Modifies the power required to increase the speed.
  • Subgrids - True if the mod will attempt to build subgrids for the console block.
  • Extra Component - An optional extra component required to build the projection.
  • Extra Component Cost - The number of extra components required per block.

Programmable Block API
These actions can be used on the projector:
  • BuildGrid - Attempt to spawn the projection.
  • CancelBuildGrid - Cancel the current pending spawn.
These properties can be accessed on the projector:
  • RequiredComponents - A list of components required to build the current projection.
  • GridTimerProjection - Amount of time the current projection would take.
  • GridTimerCurrent - The current value of the timer.
  • BuildState - The current projector state. In order from 0: Idle, Waiting, and Building

Do you know a way to send to production required components automatically?

Will it weld custom blocks from mods?

This would have been useful YEARS ago... but useful on personal creative worlds to test.

I don't suppose you'd be willing to add a button that allows the user to build as much of the ship as possible with the compnents they have? Or ignore certain components

Hello, would it be possible to use it to place the buildgrid command in a button panel, and the player who presses the button will spawn the grid in his name?
at the moment it comes out in the name of the owner of the projector or console block

You have to use a projector block that can display subgrids, like the console block.

Is there any way to have this work with multigrid blueprints?

As this mod is dealing with projectors.. Any idea Where i can get a mod that will add "Repair Projection" button that used to be on the Multigrid Projector Extra mod?

Thank you. That's an amazing mod for making a survival battle race with friends - fast respawn of vehicle if destroyed. I have a question: any idea how to spawn (instant build via projector) vehicles with fully loaded hydrogen tanks? That's not a problem in creative mod - they loads automatically, buy we are playing on survival server and fresh builded car is empty and can't join the race immediately
