Modders: How difficult would it be to mod into the game a...

Post by MrSquealypig » Sun Dec 22, 2019 10:42 am

I don't know if any modders really read this forum but I have been wondering how hard it would be to mod a hand-held shovel to pick up tipped materials and dump them into the wheelbarrow mod or onto the ground.

Do you think someone with no modding knowledge could learn how to do it? Would it require a "script" or could it be made for console as well? Do modders ever take paid requests or is that prohibited by GIANTS or something?

Any information would be greatly appreciated. I have never wanted anything modded into the game this badly.

Paid requests go against Giants TOS. And scripts aren't allowed on console.
If you have knowledge of LUA you could have a go at scripts, also I thought there was a mod for materials? No shovel mod yet though.

I've been hoping for a shovel mod myself just as badly, would love to see more hand tools.

Hello,
I guess it can be done by lua scripting, trying to do something similar than chainsaw or highPressureWashingLance

But it would require good lua knowledge + some 3d for the shovel itself.

That would be incredible!

Did you see it on the Farming Simulator Facebook page or another community?

You can use this one here:

Not a shovel, but it does exactly what you want. It picks up stuff from the ground and you can dump it where you want.
