This patch gives (modders) the ability to let resources regenerate or decay, i.e. change their resource amount using a timer.
There are several states included which can be used to check whether the change should be applied: whether the entity is dead, i.e. no Health cmp., is alive, is being gathered (introduced a new list for that, activeGatherers) or not. Combinations of those can easily be made in the State.
Use case can be included later.
- In the ticket there is a patch which uses sigmoidal growth, which would be cool :)
- The ticket also mentioned a "delay" after which a specified effect occurs, that is also not implemented here, for convenience. So if there are no entities gathering anymore the timer starts running immediately, if applicable.
- The idea was to use StatusEffects for this, but since SE cannot modify the resource amounts (V5 of SE perhaps? ;) ) I just used normal timers. One could alter the change-value using a SE, though.
Modders can change their templates using:
find . -type f | xargs sed -i 's/Amount>/Max>/g'
in their templates folder.
