Added a new mission and support for usage on the new VTOL. This version of the mod should be considered final, with the exception of bug fixes.
This mod adds a Rocket Launcher to the game, which fires explosive rockets by using Explosive Powder as fuel.
I recommend you use AstroModLoader, which you can find binaries for at Github.com, to manage this mod with a user-friendly GUI as well as to seamlessly ensure mod compatibility with most other mods you may wish to install.
You will need a copy of AstroModIntegrator; you can find a binary of it on the Astroneer Modding Discord community or build it from source at Github.com.
On Steam: Place the .pak file in the %localappdata%\Astro\Saved\Paks directory (create it if it does not already exist). Then, run AstroModIntegrator.
On the Windows Store: Place the .pak file in the %localappdata%\Packages\SystemEraSoftworks.29415440E1269_ftk5pbg2rayv2\LocalState\Astro\Saved\Paks directory (create it if it does not already exist). Then, run AstroModIntegrator.
You can research the Rocket Launcher for 8,500 bytes, to the right of the Hydrazine Jet Pack.
The Rocket Launcher can be crafted in the Backpack Printer for 1 Titanium Alloy.
To use the Rocket Launcher, place one Explosive Powder into the slot on its back, and then activate it through a vehicle, an actuator, or by pressing the context keys with it placed into a backpack aux slot.
When fired in a backpack aux slot or on a VTOL, the rocket launcher will aim towards where your mouse is pointing. In all other cases, it will fire directly forwards.
Rockets fired by the Rocket Launcher have the same strength as a piece of dynamite. They can destroy terrain, but not items.
In adventure mode, this mod also adds a couple of missions related to the creation and usage of the Rocket Launcher.
This mod works in co-op and on dedicated servers, but needs to be installed on both the client and the server.
The source code of this mod is publicly available as an example mod on the AstroTechies ModdingKit: Github.com
