Fluffy Breakdowns

Replaces random breakdowns with a maintenance requirement.

This mod requires HugsLib to be installed, and loaded before it.

Buildings using components will now gradually deteriorate. The odds of a breakdown happening (and requiring replacement components), is directly linked to the amount of deterioration.

To keep your machinery in top shape, your colonists with the construction work enabled will periodically maintain components. As long as components are properly maintained, they cannot randomly break down.

I’m very interested in any feedback on how these changes affect the difficulty of the game. I’ve tried to balance it so that it’s not too hard/easy - but I’m just one person with one playstyle.

I can help a bit with that, accept my friend request and I'll send you a PM

Yeah, I figured that'd be the case. And yeah, I'm working on getting them all reinstalled. :p

Sorry, but I can't deal with having separate versions around for separate alphas of RimWorld. If steam made version management it bit more easy it would be a different story, but it doesn't.

The good news is that there's a link right here in the description to the github releases page, where you can find every release ever made of the mod.

Fluffy, I love your mods, but I just booted Rimworld up and literally all of your mods that I had been subscribed to are now incompattible. I'm sure it's easier for you, but updating the mod directly to 0.17 rather than creating a new mod that is for 0.17 kinda breaks things for any user not immediately jumping to 0.17 and, as far as I can tell, forces one to track down and manually install the old 0.16 updates.

If possible, please don't do this. It is very frustrating. :/

I was able to reproduce it but I'm not sure exactly what I did to make it happen. It may have to do with marking a building for deconstruction and allowing it to deteriorate. When I did that it seemed like saving and then loading caused it to jump back to the maintenance level it had when it was marked for deconstruction. I also waited until all my buildings were smoking by disabling construction jobs and ended up seeing the smoke above buildings still when I loaded a save from much earlier, well before any of them reached that point. Of course alpha 17 was just released today so I'm not sure how much it matters or if it will be an issue with the new version or not. I'll start testing the new version and see what happens.

Reproduction steps would be very much appreciated. It's a bug I've heard before, but I've never been able to reproduce it myself, so I haven't been able to do much about it.

I'm having an issue where the smoke coming from buildings that need maintenance badly does not go away once the building is repaired (or removed for that matter). It's only happened once so far on a building marked for deconstruction, but I'll see if it is reproduceable.

So am I. Just not on steam, because that would break the save games of everyone who uses my mods. I've done it in the past, got a lot of comments about it. So now I am patiently waiting for A17 to be the main release version.
