Grappling Options (Infinite Range, Double Range, etc)

  • description Description

    So, as the title says, this mod removes the limit on the grappling range. You can now grapple and tether objects from miles away!

     

    Note

    • The only thing restricting the grappling range is the engine, since you can only grapple to locations which have been loaded into memory. Ground that is extremely far away can be seen, but it's just an image so you can't actually grapple to it. There is no way around this.

     

    For modders

    Choklad made some great tutorials describing the technique I used to edit the necessary files for this mod. You can find them in his thread on the forums here.
