Topic: Giving a "pause" tag?  (Read 1719 times)

Hello! I'm new to modding, and I wanted to know - is there a way I can add a pause tag to a handicraft? I'd like to be able to stop working on, for example, a bow, without losing my entire progress. I tried looking to the building stuff for help (since you can pause those constructions...), but nothing popped out at me. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)

Tasks/processes being "continue-able" are limited to some internal game functions and are not exposed at this time.
To help is it's own reward.

There is a cumbersome work around for tasks that would take too long to be possible to do in one sitting, and that is to split the task into several steps, such a log->Initial Foo->Halfway Foo->Partial Foo->Foo. That's definitely not elegant, though. Another work around is to require X Bar items as input for a Baz item, and each Bar item takes a possible amount of time (it's essentially the same work around, but with a nicer coat of paint).

Making it possible to interrupt/resume more tasks will be developed eventually, but it remains to be seen if that extends to modding (and before that, of course, the interrupt/resume extension will have to be implemented, which may not be a near term goal).
