Void Crew - Better Scanner

Adds more range for the helm scanning function.


πŸ€” Why this mod?

As with most things in base game, our helm scanner seems like it never left the handheld transceiver age. Well let's fix that!

πŸ’‘With this Mod

  • The pilot (whoever is running this mod & sitting in the chair) can scan anything in 10km range by default over the base range of 3km. No longer do you have to wonder if that blip in the blinding sun is a collector or a bomber.
  • The ship itself is now more aware of it's surroundings and will passively scan threats closing in on it from 750m onwards, up from 150m base.

πŸ“€ Runs on

  • βœ… Host
    • If you're the host & the one piloting the ship, this is all you need.
  • ⬜ Client
  • βœ… Both
    • If you're not the host but the one piloting, then you both need it.
    • You need it as a Client to activate the scan button.
    • The Host needs to have this mod installed to actually do the scanning with the ship. The game only sends a request for scanning to host and you don't carry out the scan yourself as the joining player.

⏬ Manual Install

πŸ“ƒ Prerequisite

This is a BepInEx 5 mod and as such requires that you have BepInEx 5 installed and working properly. If you've not done that yet, please go to their documentation on how to get it installed.

You want the Stable (5.x - 5.4.22 LTS at the time of writing) MONO build when you're presented with choices.

If you already know how to get BepInEx working, head over to their Releases to grab the latest copy.

πŸ‘Œ Recommended

My mods support configuration through BepInEx Configuration Manager and I'd recommend you grabbing that as well to be able to tweak the mod to your own tastes.

βœ”οΈ Mod install

So you've got a working BepInEx 5 Mono installation running successfully. Now you can download this mods zip file. Unzip the contents into your game directory where you have your Void Crew.exe.

You should find the mod installed under Bepinex\plugins\MavsPlugins\BetterScanner.

πŸ‘‹ Shoutout

While I've had many people help me out by offering me feedback on how the balance was feeling, helping me shape the balance that my mods are in one person in particular has been happy to endure my experiments and many mission fails while I adjusted settings or tried new things.

So here's a shoutout to you my friend: Blaze.

Without your patience and company, I probably would not have poured hundreds of hours I've put in making the mods and even writing all the code that builds these readme files or store packaging!
