CN - Animated Handheld Torches v2.0.4

Torches on the go, anytime, anywhere!

  1. ColonolNutty
    Also on Steam, check it out here
    Version 2.0 is here, check down below for the latest features
    Warning! When updating from version 1 to version 2, you'll lose the torches you've crafted (The ones from this mod), so be sure to convert all of them into normal torches before updating!


    What is this mod?

    Why, it's animated torches of course, and that's not all! You can hold them too! But wait, there's more! For all you Starbound modders out there, take a look at what I've done and you too can create animated handheld items in a clean way no scripts needed!

    • One Handed torches (Primary: melee slash, inflicts burn)
    • Two Handed torches (Primary: melee slash, inflicts burn; Secondary: Placement mode)
    How can I get a handheld torch of my own?

    Make a normal torch then make a handheld one (both types) from that, all with your bare hands (Who knew, all it took was to pick the torch up with your hands)

    Want a tutorial?

    To melee, all you gotta do is activate the primary ability, works for both types (Left Click is the default binding)

    To place torches on walls, active the secondary ability to enter placement mode (Only works with the two handed torch, Right Click is the default binding)
    Once you're in placement mode, move the torch around to a spot you want it, until it glows green.
    Once it's green, activate the secondary ability (Right click is the default binding) again to place the torch.
    Once you're done placing the torches how you want them activate the primary ability (swing the torch, Left Click is the default binding) and you'll exit placement mode.

    Now that you know how to do it yourself, go crazy

    I've got an issue!

    ColonolNutty (Me) for this magnificent mod

    Known Issues:
    Issue One (If you could call it that): Sometimes when entering placement mode on a spot that is valid for a torch to be placed, it'll place a torch (not much can be done about this, if you want speedy placing).​
