If you don't mind adding some GUI settings, I think it would be good to have a setting to enable/disable gem auto-transmute in general
There's already a setting for that.
and a a setting for max gem tier to auto-transmute.
is what I was asking for input about. So a simple maximum threshold would cover what folks would want on this front?
I agree that Mindslayers need access to gems. You can look for the Telekinetic Grasp talent to to filter them out.
Enh, the logic I settled on, as suggsted by lukep
, is that talents that consume gems should be the signals to prevent auto-transmo of gems. Keeping gems out of the transmo chest on the basis of Telekinetic Grasp would be kind of like keeping shields out of the transmo chest for Bulkwarks, which would be kind of odd.
This is a slightly different but related issue: would you be able to add an option to disable autotransmuting of gems that get auto-extracted once you upgrade your transmo chest in the fortress? The fortress butler gives you this option once you know the Extract Gems talent and earn enough energy. When you leave a zone, any relevant items in the transmo chest automatically have gems extracted from them and the gems are then auto-transmuted for gold. What I want is an option to make it only auto-extract the gems but not transmute them, so I can use the gems for alchemy and such.
Urk... my track record with modifying the transmo chest's behavior is not great
, but you're not the first person who's asked for this
, so I'll try to come up with something.
