  • Version 1.2.3

    Fixed: A bug where picking up 1 block would force the game to change the selected tool not allowing the big shovel to be used properly

  • Version 1.2.2

    Patch For 9.4!

    Fixes issues with it not working in 9.4


    Because Big Shovel Is NOT A Compiled Mod, This Mod goes in the UserCode folder in your mods folder now! So Unzip this ZIP inside the UserCode Folder in the Mods Folder so it should look like this:


  • Version 1.2.1

    Patched For 9.3.3

    added a new base class "BigShovel" which holds all the default values,

    Then you can alter each big shovel's maximum take in their files directly,

    Reason for adding the base class was to cleanup the files so they only contain the code they need and makes it easier to find how to change how many they can pickup

    In each file line just Adjust the MaxTake Value,

    The MaxTake can't be higher then the max stack size as the override Won't allow for it,

  • Version 1.2.0

    Fixes silly bug: Trying to dig repeatedly does nothing, to correct, you have to wait between dig attempts in order to dig multiple times

    Fixed Buggy Animation Controller Now works even better then before!

    Released as Uncompiled Version as well so now you can fully pick and choose which big shovels you want in your server,

    Assets Still in the BigShovel/Assets folder

  • Version 1.0.1

    Fixed a bug where spam clicking would lock up use of the shovels
    Made a change where the shovels now act like the normal shovel
    Requires you to hold in left click until action is completed otherwise it cancels the action - Acts like the normal shovel

  • Version 1.0.0

  • Hi, nice mod :thumbup:

    ( it would be nice if we could select others stuffs in the action bar when we have the shovel in hand with dirt. Like we can do with the Pickaxe : when you mine some rocks, you can select the storage chest to place it, from the action bar, and even the sickle to clear or the axe to cut trees or branch ...)

    (but for now, /build worldobjects storagechest,1 will do the job ...)

    • Hi there! this is core code in eco, this is not something i can change without releasing a modified Version of the Eco server, which i don't believe i am allowed to do, and would require me to make the changes for every hotfix/update eco releases
