Mod highlight part 1: Area Actions (Part 1)




there's also something called the era
actions mod and this is probably like
one of the oldest mods
uh that's been around this this is a
[ __ ] legend okay
and i've actually built like most of
this building with the air reactions mod
so this building is just like every
floor is like two constructors
with well getting there two constructors
and i built like a [ __ ] ton of floors
right and this
building this takes forever um so there
is a little way to like
cheat it a bit uh using the air actions
so the air actions mod is essentially
like you mark down areas that you want
to copy
um and you can copy like foundations and
and like yeah move them up and stuff so
let's just make a quick demo here so
like if i have a bunch of foundations
here and i place like
if i play like an old well maybe not a
extractor but like yeah i don't no
let's just put a construction keyboard
all right so so say that like i want to
have this but i want to have like 50
billion of them right
um i don't want to [ __ ] like
spend years building them right uh where
are blueprints am i right
um so with the air reactions mod
you can let's see if i remember the
commands you can click
and look at the corners here and be like
oops so now essentially like in 3d
marked this whole thing
and [ __ ] there we go
and then you can like
why can't i not see it copy paste yeah
there so here you can be like yeah i
want to move it uh
in the x-axis by 20 this is in-game i'm
not quite sure what the
the um the values are because i think
our like internal one um
because it's kind of easy to like have
them line up they're saying to use
fill fill oh yeah it's also pretty good
uh the one i used is this one
because this feel also i mean let me try
it out a bit
let me i'm gonna experiment a bit it's
doing the y-axis
so you can like using let me experiment
so you're okay like yeah exactly
so so here you go here you have like
where you can quickly
make like a bunch of them in one axis
or if you have like a specific one you
want to copy and paste and the thing
here is like
every axis was that yeah
i make a bunch in every axis
let's do it uh not that one
okay and then you can be like let's play
10 and then 10.
yes and preview that [ __ ] and the game
did it really yeah there we go
it did it it did it yeah so yeah
this just makes you know cool a little
faster to build
you know what i'm saying and the thing
here as well is like i haven't placed
these yet these are
like previews so like if if it doesn't
line up to what you think like i
don't like like the clips here i don't
like that you can be like all right then
just uh
close it oh wait yeah there you go so it
doesn't happen so nothing happens
so so let's say i just want to copy
paste this
and like move it 15. let's check it out
sorry 16.
can you like yeah it looks good and then
you can be like
okay boop and then i copied those five
buildings and the cool thing is it also
copies the recipe
um i haven't set a recipe here but if i
had i think it copied the recipe as well
so this would have the same recipe but
even then even if you didn't do that you
can still go
and see if i if i select all of these
there's also a setting for like set
recipe it can be like i want it to make
iron rods
pretty cool boop and you set all the set
on rods for all of those
so it just makes a building a little a
lot more faster
uh does this spend any materials asks
uh i think you can uh decide
