Override items repair value

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm trying to override the percentage repaired by gears when used on the propeller in SW.

I used another mod as a proxy to test the command:


Once in game, nothing changes when I try to repair the engine. The amount is the same as before.

So I tried another route:

inst.components.repairer.workrepairvalue = 15

But then I get an error, because the object "inst" hasn't been instanced yet.

Maybe the repair value is set only when the item drops...

Any idea?

The "repairer" component is typically used for repairing things like walls, in the case of Gears I believe it's used to repair Broken Clockworks, so that's not what you're looking for.

The Iron Wind uses the "fueled" component for its durability, so an item that can be used to restore that kind of durability uses the "fuel" component, which Gears have.

You had the right idea, but you have to access "inst" somehow. Thankfully, AddPrefabPostInit exists for this kind of thing. Here's what you could do:

AddPrefabPostInit("gears", function(inst)
	inst.components.fuel.fuelvalue = -- Put your value here

By default the fuel value of Gears is TUNING.TOTAL_DAY_TIME, which should be 480 seconds, if I remember correctly. You can use a TUNING value if you want, or simply put a number, it's up to you!
