About this mod

Grapple that pulls you up, or a rope to swing / wall hang

Requirements
Permissions and credits


The two main default grappling hooks are


Pull

Pulls you toward the anchor point, also pulls you in the direction you are looking (based off of titanfall 2)







Rope

Lets you swing from high places, or catch yourself mid fall and hang there








The default keys are A+W+D for slot 1, A+S+D for slot 2, Q+W (or other directions) for the other slots.  Can be changed in the config (see video)


The grapple will end if you look far enough away from the anchor point (also configurable)


You'll be saved from fall damage for a short time after grappling


As you play and use the grappling hook, you gain experience.  That experience can then be used to upgrade your grapple.  Or you could build your own from scratch







It kind of comes down to philosophy of use.  For ultimate freedom of movement, FreeFly is the best


Jetpack gives less freedom (can't clip through walls), but can feel a bit more fun when just playing the game

This grappling hook is even less capable, but by forcing the interaction to be close to objects, it's more visceral, sort of ninja/assassin like.  Grappling hook pairs very well with realism mode of jetpack.  They each know when the other is flying so they don't interfere with each other

Wall Hang could also pair well with the grappling hook.  I tend to ignore wall hang and just use grappling hook, but others may play differently

While not really related to grappling hook, my other flight based mod is
Low Flying V

This will remove the (sepia/gray/desaturated) filter when falling quickly, as well as completely remove fall damage





   





Before installing this, you will need to have Cyber Engine Tweaks and Redscript installed

Installing these isn't hard, just unzip and copy.  See attached video for details

------ Don't delete db.sqlite3 ------
This is where your custom grapple setting are stored.  If you delete it, you'll start over with the default grapple settings





Crashes


Be sure to save often.  The game will crash spontaneously while grappling (also sometimes crashes with jetpack and low flying v).  As far as I can tell, there's no bug on my end, the game just gets stressed at times and is fragile

I'll go long periods of time without crashes, then sometimes it crashes a few times in a row.  Attempts to figure out the cause can lead to superstition

So far, I haven't gotten a crash since installing CET 1.15, so hopefully the issue is gone or nearly gone


Thanks

I've gotten help from quite a few people.  Special thanks to psiberx






   







v1.3


- Now needs to be unlocked before it can be used, which makes it feel a bit like other cyberware, something that must be earned before it can be used.  This will only affect new characters (or if you delete db.sqlite3).  The unlock requirement will also be skipped if you use the xp cheat hotkey

- Removed Air Dash.  If a grapple has it equipped, it will be removed and the spent xp will be refunded

- Added Air Anchor (what I called virtual anchor in my todo list).  If the aim doesn't see a wall, then this will act like an anchor point, but costs more energy to use

- Reduced the energy cost of grappling to about 65% of what it was previously.  Also each increase of energy tank size is 3 per xp instead of 2

- Increased the height of the ray cast from 1.5 to 1.85 (thanks Dravic).  This makes it line up with the crosshair better while looking up.  It seems like the swivel point of the crosshair is different than just directly above the player's feet.  It will take some more investigation to try to match it perfectly


v1.2

- Fixed for 1.3

- Air Dash is marked as deprecated (no code change to it yet, but the plan is to auto scrap if equipped and refund the xp).  I wanted to get virtual anchors implemented before pushing a new version, but 1.3 forced this release


v1.1

- Added grapple sounds

- Doubled the xp gain.  Once achievements get implemented (like multiple continuous grapples), the base xp gain will be adjusted back down a bit

- Added hotkey: "Instant XP (cheat)", which adds 3 xp each time you press the key.  RESIST the temptation!

- Some properties can now be set to lower values.  The regular min value is where xp costs start.  When setting the value lower, there is no xp reclaimed.  For the most part, there's no reason to use these low values (like really weak acceleration), but there might be cases for it and the option now exists





Web Swing:  Currently, the only grapple type is straight line.  A spiderman style web swing will use most of the same physics, it's just a matter of calculating an anchor point based on current velocity and look direction.  Plus all the config screens

Zip Line:  This would be a fun style of grappling.  Would need to figure out how to draw lines on the screen.  Maybe temporarily spawning cables?  Or a function that calculates 2D screen point based on camera pos, dir, fov, then draw lines with imgui?
