The only thing you can do with the shovel at the moment is increase the amount of items it removes from a storage container when you left click on it. Override the "MaxTake" property and increase the value from 1 to 10, and this will allow you to left click a container and remove 10 of dirt/stone etc.
Howdy @R4mbo Did already my first pass on that , Though i am not a coder and did that in my spare time. I created a pull request and asked if eric can help me with that. right now he his working on some more important bugs so no guarantees when it will come in game since Eric needs to do some fixing on my code. I also did not manage to figure out how to do the plot thing ( kinda a bit to complicated to find out where i need to go to get that data and how to do that. I think you have to expand some core code to get that to work in a good way ? )
Thanks for all the help. It works. Though the message is hard coded for now. I will need for it to be loaded from a file so it can be easily changed and saved so if the server crashes it won't show the hard coded one but load from the file of what it was last set at.
If you don't have dev tier access, there are few ways you could possibly do this, since adding full-on plugins isn't well documented/easily done in the modkit, yet.
you could make an item, where in the static constructor you just startup a timer or task to send messages whenever you need to.
Chat is changing a bit in alpha 4, with a lot more features. I would like to add a web API too it as well, so you could post any message to the server via a simple HTTP POST request too, which would be another way to write a MOTD plugin in whatever language you wanted too.
