Rim of Madness - Bones

Build stuff out of bone!

When butchering animals, you will now also receive some bone material. These bones can then be used to build anything that could normally be stuffed out of wood. This includes walls, doors, furniture, workbenches, weapons, and some armors.


Good For?

Tribal play-throughs, before stone-cutting is researched. Bone has no flammability, so can be used to fireproof parts of your early base.
Extreme biomes, where wood is scarce.
Chicken farmers! Build your hens a new coop out of the bones of their family!
Cultists. After all, alters to elder gods are best made out of bone!
Any hunting heavy colony. Before long, you'll be able to build EVERYTHING out of bone!
Cannibals. Got to do something with all those human bones


How to obtain:

Bones - Butcher any non-mechanoid creature.
Calcium Polymer - A metal material obtained after the first bone research. 40 bones + refinery = 50 calcium polymer.
Bonecrete - A stone material obtained after the first bone research. 60 bones + refinery = 40 bonecrete.
Bone ash - An art material obtained after the first bone research. Created at the Crematorium (not the refinery).

Plasteel - After the second research, Plasteel can be made with steel + calcium polymer at the refinery.


Bone Stats:
Version 2.0 of this mod has bone with identical stats to wood, with the following exceptions

Flammability is reduced to 0 (Bones aren't very flammable).
Sale value of bone items reduced to 75% of similar wood items (hopefully, if I set the correct values).
Bone can't be used to fuel fire items (campfire, stove, generator, etc)
Sharp and Blunt multipliers swapped.

In my current play through I'm using this mod but when I butcher animals I get no bones.

I feel the nutrition of Gelatin should be vastly upped based on the resources and work amount put into making it. Since it takes 10 bone marrow, it should probably have nutrition from .25-.5

I know you may be matching Vanilla values with Insect Jelly, but making Gelatin is just not feasible with the current values.

I am not useing woodworking, and it seems to only block bone chairs, everything else works fine.

Are you using extended woodworking? It's a known issue between the two mods.

I think I ran into a problem where bones can't be used to build anything anymore

It's quite easy to get this mod without the plasteel research.
Don't use the plasteel research, done.

My testing shows that RIMMSqol seems to cause the no bones problem, at least in my load order. If you are using that mod, putting it last in the load order seems to fix the no bones issue.

hi have you checked the mod settings just in case it was set to the higher setting?

when i added it to my game, i was about 3 in-game years into it, so i set the multiplier to x3 to "catch up" with the bones :) but you might be able to lower the value to your liking

Fun but way OP - bones are basically just free money/materials at a certain point (you get way too much) and the ability to build houses out of bone is both extremely weird - which is good - and really cheap - which is bad. Just not for me I guess.

I kind of want this mod without the plasteel research as I feel that it's a tiny bit op.
