    I'm trying to make a test tech that will output useful information into the log so I can figure out how things work. However, I can't seem to equip it. I'm not seeing anything in the logs that would be useful.

    Here's the code:
    /tech/distortionsphere/techdebug.tech
    Code:
    {
      "name" : "techdebug",
      "type" : "head",
    
      "scripts" : ["techdebug.lua"],
    
      "description" : "^green; Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.",
      "shortDescription" : "Tech Debugger",
      "rarity" : "Uncommon",
      "icon" : "/tech/techdebug.png",
    
      "chipCost" : 1,
    
      "energyCost" : 2
    }
    
    /tech/distortionsphere/techdebug.lua
    Code:
    require "/scripts/vec2.lua"
    require "/scripts/keybinds.lua"
    
    function init()
      Bind.create("f", debugCommands())
    end
    function debugCommands()
      sb.logInfo("Current aim position: " .. tech.aimPosition)
      sb.logInfo("Current gender/species: " .. player.gender() .. " / " ..player.species())
      sb.logInfo("Current player entity ID: " .. player.id())
      sb.logInfo("Current unique player ID: " .. player.uniqueID())
      if player.isAdmin() == true then
        sb.logInfo("Player is currently the Admin.")
      else
        sb.logInfo("Player is not currently the Admin.")
    end
    function update(args)
    end
    function uninit()
    end
    
    This is my first time using Lua, so some tips and advice would be nice too.

    Well you have do enable your tech somehow. Usually by quest, but there is another way. See my tech mod to see me hooking the tech console's interface. For your purpose here, just piggy back onto it.

    Code:
    /admin
    /enabletech techdebug
    ?

    True for debug use, that makes more sense.

    I was using that, but after saying that it was enabled, looking at my character sheet and the logs, nothing happened.

    Enabled is one thing, equipped is another. Check the tech console.

    That worked! Thanks. Now I've got to fix my code!
