[0.23] Part Groups & Filter v0.5

Simple plugin for filtering of parts in VAB/SPH. Filtering works via text input and/or via user-defined categories and groups.

Overview

This is a little plugin for filtering editor parts. Filtering works via text input and/or via user-defined categories and groups.

These are defined manually by user (using the provided editor). I originally wanted to define the metrics on the fly, but I couldn’t find any reliable way to make it work, so I opted for this approach instead. It takes some time to properly prepare all the groups, but at least you have full control over the filtering.

How to use

Type text into the text box on the upper panel to filter parts by pattern matching (name, manufacturer, description). The "..." button toggles the group filtering window. This window shows part groups sorted into categories (columns). User can select multiple groups among multiple categories, the result filter is union/intersection of selected groups, e.g. all stock parts AND (engines OR fuel tanks). Groups and categories can be modified using the provided editor, which could be found at PartGroupsFilter\Tools\PartGroupsEditor.exe (requires .NET 4.0). You can define/change existing categories by right clicking on the right panel and add parts to them by dragging from the left panel. Don't forget to save. To disable this feature, simply delete the PartGroupsFilter\Plugins\PluginData folder. This also hides the "..." button, so you're effectively left with just the text filter.

  1. Thanks Great Mod

  2. Interesting Mod. I’ve noticed it doesn’t always pick up on installed mods, and or It will only pick up on one of several parts (This is particularly true when a .CFG file has several parts it will only get the first one) But overall a really solid tool.
