Looks overpowered but Iam not complaining
10/10 Without even testing it yet

Careful not to let the map pips become a replacement for situational awareness, though. The pip only shows the location of what the game considers their "squad leader", and if you focus too much on where that is, you can get blindsided by the guy who flanked or got separated from the group.

But it's nice for those times when you hear gunfire, want to get involved, see a bunch of Mercs and Monolith, and go "oh that looks fun".

Thanks. Can you confirm for me whether this occurs with the two files from the GAMMA patch folder added? They are not installed automatically.

Please delete the sim_squad_scripted.script file from the previous patch and update to the latest version of this addon. It should fix all of the conflicts.

Автор, не могли бы мы получить DLTX версию, чтобы map_spots_relations не перезаписывать вашим? Идея и аддон хорошие, спасибо вам!

Russian localization by me: Drive.google.com

Feel free to implement it.

Haven't tested it, as i don't have Anomaly installed at the moment.

Personally, i wouldn't use this add-on because it seems to kind of kill the thrill of unexpected encounters with stalkers. Maybe make ISG, Sin and possibly Monolith - invisible to the PDA?

But nice add-on nonetheless.

Thank! I'll get the localization added.

There are days when I just want to go find fun in the Zone wherever it is. It'd be easy enough to add an optional faction blacklist to it.

The version I just posted now has a configurable blacklist in MCM and/or the script, allowing you to pick whether each individual faction appears on the PDA. It defaults to not showing Monolith, Sin, and ISG.

I'm sorry my bad. It's not the map relations ltx file. It's the sim_squad_script that keeps on crashing the game. I really love your mod but can't add it yet due to this. I hope this helps. Other than that, very proper mod mate! Love it!

I suspect that's what's causing the GAMMA crash as well, so I'll do some separate testing in 1.5.2 with Ishmael's Killtracker by itself, see if I can isolate the problem. Thank you!

Hello friend, I am using this mod Moddb.com
and for some reason the recipe does not appear when activating the option in MCM, could you please write the crafting recipe in this comment so that I can add it myself?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

CatspawMods - - 422 comments

The default recipe in the script is:

prt_i_transistors x20
prt_i_capacitors x25
prt_o_ballistic_8 x2 (Kevlar K119 plates w/ carbon-fibre inserts)
device_pda_3 (PDA 3.1)

However, you can of course choose whatever materials seem reasonable to you.

Good news! I sorted out the conflicts with Ishmaeel's Kill Tracker and GAMMA, and confirmed that the new patch is working for both. Please make sure you delete the sim_squad_scripted.script file that came with the previous patch.

Version 1.2 also now has a configurable blacklist that allows you to customize whether each individual faction (for instance, Monolith) show up on the PDA.

Good addon. But the debuglog is enabled by default which constantly spams the console. Maybe add a switch to the MCM?

CatspawMods - - 422 comments

My apologies, that is an error--it should always be disabled before I pack it up.

I'll add an MCM switch in the next version, but you can disable the logging by opening the item_milpda.script file in any text editor. Right at the top you'll see this line:

local debuglogs = true

Change it to false and that will get rid of the spam.

New in version 1.3:

* Granular customization of each tier of PDA to suit your immersion and preferences. Make PDA 1.0 see friendlies, make all PDAs show bodies, turn off enemy mapspots altogether--tweak your PDA to behave the way you want.

* Fully integrated Ishmaeel's Kill Tracker, which should also correct GAMMA issues. A patch is no longer neecessary. Please support their work by downloading the original mod here: Moddb.com

* Fixed inability to swap batteries. Anomaly now properly recognizes the MPDA as a device.

* Fixed PDA hotkey not pulling up the MPDA, related to above.

* Fixed debug logging on by default, added MCM option.

* New MCM graphics and third optional inventory icon style for the MPDA.

* Expanded SPA localization. All localizations still incomplete, but most options should be easy to identify.

Would there be interest in a quest-based crafting option for the MPDA, like having to track down flash drives with software updates? It's something that would take time to develop if at all, but the idea has crossed my mind.

Hi man! It's me again. I installed the 1.3 version after the kiltracker addon but for some reason, tje killtracker is not working. I see no dots when I kill a stalker. I enabled the Killtracker on the milspec pda item script or something like that to "true" but it's still not working. Same goes with other PDAs. Can you please kindly enable the killtracker by default to save us from fidgiting the scripts? Otherwise, I'll just revert back to 1.2 since it's working fine. Thank you man!

There's an issue in 1.3 with the KT toggle. It's fixed in 1.4, which will be going out later today. This version also has KT enabled by default.

I see the problem. They're trying to look up the player's current device in a table of theirs, and there isn't a check for null values from items added by other mods.

I'll see about a patch, but in the meantime you can fix this by opening up their script and inserting this between lines 31 and 32:

["device_pda_milspec"] = {
["actor_icon"] = true,
["actor_arrow"] = true,
["companion_icons"] = true,
},
