Removing Steam Vents/Geysers
« on: April 18, 2016, 04:40:16 AM »

Hello, I was wondering if there are any ways of removing Steam Vents/Geysers, Currently when using the "Destroy Tool" in the debug actions menu on a Geyser it says it cannon be removed because Geysers are non-destructible. And I have found no other alternatives in the debug actions menu.

Have a look through Tynan's recent posts. I'm sure someone else asked this recently and the answer was edit the save game file and delete it from there.

That's what I figured I'd have to do. Just thought I'd ask before I went and messed with my save files. Thanks.

The only way to do it is to remove it through the savegame files. You're looking for the following:
<thing Class="SteamGeyser">
            <def>SteamGeyser</def>
            <id>SteamGeyserxxxxx</id>
            <pos>(x, x, x)</pos>
         </thing>

Cheers. Any idea why it isn't in the debug settings? Just curious.

I'm not quite certain, it could be just that he didn't add it in the removal tool, or there's some other issue that arises if you try to remove it in-game. The only one who can really explain it is probably Tynan himself.
