Writeable is "difficult" to apply

Recommended Posts

The writeable widget requires a script called "writeables" to configure itself. This is mostly about strings and layout, and in my opinion a nice idea.


But when I looked at said script, it was horrible. Not only do all three signs use the exact same configuration, but more importantly it is impossible to add your own configuration (okay maybe you could edit the loaded package, but that's way more complicated than it should be). Writeable doesn't have any proper means of adding custom configurations either. That means I'd have to hack the component in order to make my prefab writeable!


I suggest Klei implements a failsafe configuration (ideally the currently used one). Also, modders should be able to set a custom configuration without overriding the script file or changing the package, for example by setting a variable "widgetconfig_override" in the component.
