Repair kits have always been odd. Always using the same 2 items to repair anything just seemed wrong. So here is a fix for that.
Each kit will handle a certain type or group of Items. Each type of repair kit is color coded as well so you can find the type you are looking for easily.
Repair Kit Types
- Iron Repair Kit – This is just the current repair kit in the game. Any non-vanilla items will still be repaired with this.
- Steel Repair Kit – This repairs Steel Tools and Weapons.
- Motor Repair Kit – Repairs things with motors. Currently does not work for vehicles – Looking how to fix that but it seems hard coded for just the normal repair kit.
- Gun Repair Kit – Repairs Guns
- Non-Metal Armor Repair Kit – Repairs cloth and leather armor.
- Metal Armor Repair Kit – Repairs Iron and Steel Armor.
- Military Armor Repair Kit – Repairs Military Armor.
This mod is server side friendly, so you can just drop it in and go.
There will be some updates for sure, but this is a pretty good start on it.
- (new) Bug Fix for proper repair kit for the Steel Fireaxe, Steel Spear, and Steel Knuckles.
- Bug Fix for not being able to use the repair kits to repair the item it was meant to repair.
- Added configuration for loot.xml so that you can find these in the same locations in the world where you would find normal repair kits.
