Personal Beacons

-- I no longer have the time to maintain my mods. I may come back to them and do an update once the game goes out of Early Access and the code base stablilizes somewhat. The source code for all of my mods can be found at . Any modder who wishes to update one of the mods can fee free to make a branch and deploy a new mod under there name. Credit would be appreciated.--

Allows you to place a beacon to mark locations as visible from a distance. Works well on PvE servers to help find locations in the dark. Also good for admins on PvP servers to create events by placing items in a beacon and allowing a free for all battle to get to the reward.

Currently the item is free to craft. In the near future I will look to add configuration options to require resources to craft and to make it an admin spawn only item.

Beacons have the following features:
* Can change color to red, yellow, green, blue or cyan
* Pickup and replace
* Has an inventory equal to a small storage box

Can be spawned with:
admincheat giveitem "Blueprint'/Game/Mods/PersonalBeacons/Items/PrimalItemStructure_PersonalBeacon.PrimalItemStructure_PersonalBeacon'" 1 0 0

To hide the engram for crafting the beacon enter the following line in your servers "game.ini" configuration file:


This mod is clean and stackable.

The only way to get rid of the V1 beacon is to collect it and drop it on the ground.
Just press the demolition in the installed state, the server stops at all.

This is Greately usefull mod but, the resource conflict problem is very serious.
V2 is also very good, but it has limitations. It's a matter of color choice.

I have started recreating this mod's functionality here

Its a bit rough right now, but it is at a point where you can place something that works.

Giraffe? cheers man,that will have to do for now-spawning em in,rather than through the engram.

Hope this gets updated soon. Shame it causes crashes when you try to click a beacon or craft one. But it still kinda works for me cause I just play on a private server with my SO, you can still spawn a beacon using commands, and drag it to your hotbar. Once it's on your hotbar you can just craft and place them from there.
