[RF] Smooth Stone Walls [b18]

1.0 VERSION (now called "Etched Stone Walls") AVAILABLE HERE: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1545872070

"Smooth Stone Walls" allows you to smooth natural stone walls, just as you can smooth natural stone floors, thanks to a new option in the "Structure" tab of the architect menu. This allows you to have real walls in the rooms in your mountain hideaway, without needing to mine out rock and then immediately replace it with a wall built from scratch. Smoothing a section of stone wall takes four times as long as smoothing a section of floor, as there's more work involved. (And because it seems about right for balance purposes.) Smoothed stone walls are slightly more durable than stone walls constructed of blocks. When deconstructed, smooth stone walls don't yield blocks, but instead have a chance to drop stone chunks, just as if you'd mined them.

Smoothed stone walls are, as you'd expect, smooth. They don't have the graphic patterning that constructed (block) walls have. The two wall types blend into each other quite nicely, but still, some players prefer to have all their walls look exactly the same. If you're one of them, you can have your crafty pawns "etch" the smoothed stone walls, to give them a pattern that matches the brick pattern in constructed walls. Alternatively, you can have a pawn with artistic skill do decorative etching, in which case at least some of your wall tiles, in addition to a brick pattern, will end up randomly decorated with pictures.

Wall Graphics and Embrasures:

The mod makes minor alterations to the default wall graphics, in order to allow walls and rock of the same stone type to blend into each other seamlessly.

"Smooth Stone Walls" does not add embrasures, but it does include textures for embrasures that are designed to match the revised base wall textures. These textures will automatically replace the textures provided by most mods that add embrasures. If you prefer to use the default embrasure texture of the other mod, simply remove the "EmbrasurePatches.xml" file from this mod's "Patches" folder.

The embrasure texture patching has been confirmed to work with "Cocoa's Embrasures" by LazyCocoa, "ED-Embrasures" by Jaxxa, "Embrasures" by Brunayla, "Matching Embrasures" by Cucumpear and "Rimworld: Medieval Edition" by Bonehead14. It also works with "Medieval Times" by Vindar, though it should be noted that since the ice walls in that mod still utilize the vanilla wall texture, ice embrasures are not modified.



"Smooth Stone Walls" adds a new capability, but doesn't change any existing things, so it should be compatible with pretty much any other mod. You should be able to add it to an existing saved game without trouble. Removing it from a game in progress, however, will make the game unplayable if you have any smoothed or etched walls on the map.

"Smooth Stone Walls" is fully compatible with stone types added by other mods, meaning that you'll be able to smooth walls of non-vanilla stone types as easily as you can those of vanilla stone types.



Most of the images used for wall art came from the flaticon.com Web site.

The German translation file was provided by Steam user Lauri7x3. The Japanese language translation files were provided by Steam user Proxyer. The Russian language files were provided by kr33man.

The mod utilizes Pardeike's "Harmony Patch Library." (No additional download is required, as the library is included with the mod.)



If you're a modpack maker and want to include "Smooth Stone Walls" in your pack, or if you're a modder and want to use it as the basis of a derivative mod, please feel free to do so. I ask only that you let me know about it.


The Ludeon forums discussion thread for my mods can be found here[ludeon.com].

If you have any (helpful) suggestions for improvement, please let me know!

My mods are free, but if you'd like to buy me a Dr Pepper[ko-fi.com], I wouldn't complain.

All right. I get it. People want to etch walls. So, yes, I'm working on a 1.0 update. Might actually be ready later tonight, but if not, I should certainly be able to release it tomorrow night.

Thanks for all the fish duder. This mod was awesome and I'm sure it's why it got added to vanillia.

honestly i would be very pleased if you would make a mod for the new versions that only incorporated the wall art bit. anyways, this is how it ought to be. all the best mods should simply already have been part of the game. +!0 points

It wasn't just silly eye candy, it was a really neat extension of the idea. Nonetheless, I'm not complaining. Thanks for making a mod that made it into the base game!

the best part about this mod was that you could etch walls to make them look like they were made from brick. now if you have to fill in a whole the wall with bricks you have to replace the walls around them too
