hmmm.. interesting, seems i could use that - also updated my NP++ and downloaded a hex editor plugin - since I saw someone else had it, I set out the other day to figure out how.
Seems like "/myassets/nature/blueprints/logs" and "nature/blueprints/choppedwood" (with some additional text for each) are what I desire
I'll need to try find all "Nature/Blueprints/log" replace all with "Naturd/Blueprints/log" and same for chopped wood, - I'd do "Nature" replace all with "naturd" but "Tree base" also seems to be in nature, and I'd rather not see zero trees...
There's only 105 Nature targets. - 15 of which (or so) are "tree base"
Those 15 treebases (or so) are the "Duplicating" tree base, and changing them to naturd would result in getting a "properly" respawned "untouched" tree, and not 1o230585 100% trees beside my smelter... which, on its own, Is essentially the problem/goal.
so this could be 3 Versions of save game fixer all on their own
ver.A - Remove Logs, Remove treebase ****** if tree base is the duplication bug -> Leaves chopped wood for Smelter
Ver B - Remove All Nature/Wood drops -> in case you're like me, and have either chopped a log by accident, or flung himself across the map on a steek and left the chopped wood out in the middle of the lake because screw carrying one alone back....
and Ver c - Remove Treebase **** if tree base is the duplication bug -> Leaves Logs/firewood for smelter (use if these aren't out of control in your save)
I can't imagine that "15" (or so) trees are all that exist in the game - But I can totally imagine 8-10 or so are stacked beside my smelter, and 3-5 are stacked on trees i've cut down twice or so, and the stray others are one offs I've had to mess with for purposes.
In fact. just on a quick sprint towards the ore-vein beside the cave entrance, I counter over 20 nearly 30 trees, there's no way so few "tree bases" exist, unless they are indeed, the duplicate tree. -I'll back up my save and attempt simply switching all "Nature" to "Naturd", and get back to you eventually. (Not going to do it immediately, going to wait for proper morning time to quit so I don't screw up sleep schedule, and sell my assembled items, so I don't have to reassemble them)
