Is it possible for me to modify what the debug cheats do? like I want it to give me $1m not $999m or instead of every item/creature only specific ones?

Currently not possible.

(but I thought about it already, it is also impractical for me to receive all items, especially because most mods have enforced storage limits and I am forced to sell them immediately)

If only it was as simple as having a text document listing all creatures/items with true/false next to them so you can turn them on and off as you please. But thats a massive task
One thing that could be done is create more commands like ctrl+shift 1 could give you just vehicle related stuff.

Besides getting a bunch of stuff you don't want, they come in 2's so you have to spend extra time sorting out what you want and don't want, heaven forbid you activate this after opening up multiple bases, now you gotta go through all the bases.

Now that I tihnk about it, I'm suprised there isn't an instant manufacture cheat. Then again the game would probably break if you used it while something is set to craft infinitely.

There is some programs that are designed to edit save files, would they be better for this task?

depends on what he actually wants to do

if he wants to cheat, then yes, it's perfectly reasonable to use a save editor.... it's one action, done rarely, so can take a bit longer (several seconds up to a minute)

if he wants to "debug", or perform many repetitive tests (like I very often do), then having hotkeys is much better... many actions, done often, must take less than a second

Maybe we should add console like in Quake? :D
At least we could reuse lot of function registration from y-script.

If that console had autocomplete, I'd be using it every day :) no joke

@Meridian et al.

Sorry for the off-topic. I get an error message about an expired certificate when I try to access to the OXCE Nightly website at: https://lxnt.wtf/oxem/#/Extended

Before I could continue on Firefox, but not anymore.

This is the error message:

It is usually resolved within a few days.

PS: I can continue in Firefox

How does the game determine how long it takes to transfer stuff from one base to another? Quickly looking I didn't find a ruleset for this but maybe I just couldn't find the right thing.

In XCF I noted that apparently it takes 15 hours to do base-to-base transfers, no matter the distance between the bases. In contrast, fly-transfer of crafts can be faster or slower, depending on the speed and distance (and how fast the craft can refuel).

This make me wonder if the modders would be interested in a ruleset/option where the transfer times could vary based on distance or other factors (e.g. craft speeds or how cumbersome a particular item is to transfer via courier services - especially useful if the modder wanted to make "big" item transfer slower).

Yes, it did. I was able to download "Extended-7.11.4-23daf1cbd-2024-02-05-win64.7z".

But I just tried to access again and now the problem is the site cannot be found.

Indeed, lxnt.wtf has been down for at least several days as of right now.
