Building Overhaul mod - Long-Term Crafting Projects

Subscribed

Description
The mod requires you to start CrafTecs (working name) on squares, then add parts like planks and nails. After that, you can start working on the object. If you only have half of the necessary parts, you can start building the object up to 50% completion (or whatever fraction of parts you have).

Objects take a LOT longer than they did before. Walls take half an hour, stairs four hours, crates one hour and so on. It always felt weird putting up walls and stairs in minutes.
To counterbalance that long time, you can stop the project at any time and resume working on it later. You can even share the work between different people!

The code also allows for objects to require certain level in different skills and even allows for certain profession. This way you could, for example, require a nurse with experience in Blunt-Maintenance to build a certain object.
You can also require MULTIPLE professions / skilllevels for a single object.

You can also require different tools to build things. Hammers, saws, blowtorches, a waterscale, a pen, a piece of paper, anything!

Yes, when I got the time, I will update this to the multistage functionality.

Have you got planned to continue with this mod?

I loved the idea and I think the carpentry in the game should be like this.

not sure if it is this mod, or somethingg else i'm usingg, haen't gone through and used only this mod alone. But, ever since I've installed this mod, i'm no longger able to add sheet ropes to windows so i can climb up and down to the 2nd story of my house. Kind of an issue when I plan to make a new base in the woods with no ground floor access.

hope it's not youur mod causeing it. will look into thhe issue to make sure. causue I loe using youur mod for building and haiving the ability ot partially make thinggs and then come back with more supplies when I have them.

Would love adjusting wall health as an option. So fort building doesn't come down to 'find base, knock out stairs' like it currently does.

@Marble:
Thanks! This mod doesn't have much - if any - overlap with More building. This mod here changes the way things are built - and has hooks fro other mods to use. More building adds a lot many more options to build in the game.
While More building could very well hook into Craftec, there's no "common goal" I'm afraid.

更多建筑(More building)

@Marble:
If you have seen a similiar mod, i'd very much like to hear about it! Maybe get in contact with the creator so we can work on something together.
But maybe you mean the Wooden Dowel mod? Or Hydrocraft?

But i dont think they made mod with construction added and able to finish later..
Maybe im just rambling since im kinda tired in the head..

I dont know about the content on this. i mean i dont want to sound like that one guy saying "Somebody already made this mod. get out of here"
No its just that i've seen a very detailed and conent filled mod on furnneture from the game its self. and its really well done and has added features
(It was nothing but Chinese/Japanese so no supprise XD)
