Many Tabs (1/2)

In 1 collection by v6
Many Tabs - Required
2 items

Adds an easy way for modders to add filter tabs to vanilla crafting stations and race tabs to the codex library without having to worry about compatibility with other mods.

Moves the filter tabs for vanilla crafting tables to the left side and change them to a vertical layout.
Codex library will auto-expand to fit the amount of race tabs that have been added.

Please keep in mind that it is not possible to add an unlimited amount of tabs so you should preferably only use one.

Fully functional with Extended GUI but tabs currently start in the middle of the screen instead of top.

NOTE: Do not put this mod as a include or require in your metadata file or you will break its functionality.

How to add a filter tab to crafting station
Create a transparent 26 x 17 px png with a centered icon.
Create a patch file in the usual location for the specific crafting table.
E.g. interface/windowconfig/xxxxxx.config.patch
[ { "op": "add", "path": "/modTab/-", "value": { "file": "/interface/crafting/tabicon_yourmod.png", "filter": [] }} ]
Please note that adding tabs to crafting.config is not supported as it is shared between plain hands, capturestation, ironcraftingtable, railcraftingtable, heartforge, holidaycraftingtable & spawnerstation.

How to add a race tab to codex window
Add a race button like you normally would and do not change anything else

[ { "op": "add", "path": "/paneLayout/speciesTabs/buttons/-", "value": { "position": [4, 5], "baseImage": "/interface/codex/tab_yourrace.png", "baseImageChecked": "/interface/codex/tab_yourrace_select.png", "pressedOffset": [0, 0], "data": { "species": "yourrace" } } } ]

Check if the mod is loaded (not required to add tabs)
// Mod loaded { "op": "test", "path": "/manytabs", "value": true } // Mod not loaded { "op": "test", "path": "/manytabs", "inverse": true }

I know you might not respond to this, but it's work asking anyways. Is there a way to remove a default tab? I'm trying to make some changes to the Inventor's table, and want to remove the default tab to replace it with some different ones, but I cannot seem to do it.

You know there's patches for Frackin' Universe and this mod, right?

@Nemeryel yea, nevermind the fact that even the official frackin server has this mod listed as a recommended client-side mod.

@Hazearil: super late responce, but the 1st part runs before mods that use this and adds some infrastructure that's needed for mods to be able to actually detect many tabs and log their own tabs, 2nd part runs after that and is what detects those logs and turns them into tabs.

Why does this mod actually need to be separated in 2 mods if you have to use both anyway?

Could you make this work with Mech Overhaul?

Seems to be incompatible with Better (C) Interface:
