Version: v0.1.1
Changes for 0.1.1:

  • Increased scroll sensitivity
  • Temporary fix for activated=true bug.


This is the first public test of the SimpleRockets 2 port of my popular Overload mod for SimplePlanes.


It allows you to edit all aspects of parts in much more detail than the options panel. If you want to know about the full extent of what you can do, I've documented it all, here. It still needs some filling in with explanations but all the options are listed.


Installation

Windows

  1. Download mod file: here
  2. Find your SimpleRockets 2 save directory. First go to your AppData, then LocalLow\SimpleRockets 2\.
  3. Put the mod in the Mods folder.
  4. Open the Settings.xml file in a text editor.
  5. Find the line that reads: <EnabledMods />
  6. Replace it with this:

    <EnabledMods>
    <EnabledMod name="Overload" version="0.1" lastUpdated="2019-02-01T21:48:26.6652024Z" path="c:\users\username\appdata\locallow\jundroo\simplerockets 2\mods\overload.windows.sr2-mod" />
    </EnabledMods>

However you MUST change username to your username, in lower case. This must be exact for the mod to load for some reason.

Mac

  1. Download mod file: here
  2. Find your SimpleRockets 2 save directory. This is located at: ~/Library/Application Support/Jundroo/SimpleRockets 2
  3. Put the mod in the Mods folder.
  4. Open the Settings.xml file in a text editor.
  5. Find the line that reads: <EnabledMods />
  6. Replace it with this:

    <EnabledMods>
    <EnabledMod name="Overload" version="0.1" lastUpdated="2019-02-01T21:49:57.0032363Z" path="[MOD PATH LOWERCASE]" />
    </EnabledMods>

But, you MUST replace [MOD PATH LOWERCASE] with the absolute path to the mod file (in the mods folder), in lowercase. This is for some reason essential for the mod to load.


Once you have completed installation, start SR2 and if it was successful, you should see an extra button in the part properties panel in the designer, like this:

Then you can simply click this to edit the selected part!


Known bugs:

  • The input caret disappears when scrolling.
  • Text disappears when you scroll too far down. Another InputField bug. For now, use the arrow keys to scroll down.

Any other bugs please mention.


In the future I plan to have a non-XML based editor with a text field for each property. But this should make do for now :)

    @WNP78 I'm aware of the iOS shenanigans (check my SP bio) I'm just sad 😢 that our Apple friends can't enjoy what we PC and Android users can :(

    @JediWolf yeah, android should support modding, but like SimplePlanes, iOS will not due to Apple's App Store policies.

    @WNP78 when mobile comes in a few months or something like that how will you plan on a mobile port?

    @Opise227 the open/close tag thing is simply how XML works. Because <EnabledMods /> is "self-closing", it is essentially shorthand for <EnabledMods></EnabledMods>. The lower case thing is a nuance of the game. The mod loading wasn't really designed to be doing this at this point. It gets all the mods it can see, including the details on path and last updated, and checks for an exact match in the settings file. Before it does this it converts the other path to lower case (probably to negate any changes in case), so the entry in settings has to be lower case as well. I have tested this. It will be more user friendly in the future when the mod api is officially supported.

    @Opise227 The problem is that the path needs to be all lowercase letters. Change all of the uppercase letters in the path to lowercase and you should be fine.

    It gave me an interesting... problem?
    Well first of all, the "edit XML" button doesn't show up :(
    I tried to launch SR2 with and without Steam, relaunch both of them, quadruple-checked the XML file, and even copy pasted my path (and added overload.windows.sr2-mod)
    But isn't that just weird that instead of putting the line of code inside of <EnabledMods />, we have to change it for an open/close tag? however nobody seemed to have problems.
    Second thing is the lowercase. I mean, why would you do this in the first place? Wouldn't the file read it differently? Nobody seems to have issues with that and you Specifically said that it had to be in lowercase.
    As I was thinking of that, I tried to save another set of settings and expected to see the XML file to remove the line. But instead, it correctly capitalized by itself the path!
    Still, the button doesn't show up.

    It would be extremely useful to accompany this if we had a sheet like SimpleCheats but for SR2

    @PorkyClown3 it's the file path to the mod in the mods folder, but in lower case. Go to the mod (in the mods folder, not your downloads) and shift + right click on it then press "copy as path". That will copy the file path to the mod, but it likely has upper case letters that you need to make lower case. If you have something like notepad++ you can do that quickly but you could also do it manually. The path at the end might look a bit like this:
    c:\users\yourusername\appdata\locallow\jundroo\simplerockets 2\mods\overload.windows.sr2-mod

    @SupremeDorian Just checked, this is indeed a bug and I think it's a problem with the input fields again. For now, use the arrow keys to move the cursor down.

    @AxelSpace see step 5 - find the line that says <EnabledMods /> and replace it with the text below, then replace /path/to/mod with the full path to the mod in lower case.

    Amazing! Though, one problem i'm having with this mod is that if I scroll down too much in the overload menu all of the text disappears until I scroll back up and then it suddenly reappears. This is problematic because I can't scroll to the bottom of the text field and modify things below a certain point. Otherwise, great mod! Impressive as always. :) @WNP78

    @WNP78 - I prefer the term "CDO".
    It's like OCD, but the letters are in alphabetical order.

    @swope yes, you will go down in history. Your great sacrifice in the name of OCD will be remembered.
