"Greatest hauling mod ever" - Chicken Plucker

Colonists will gather stuff in their inventory, then haul it all to a stockpile.

This hauling mod will greatly increase hauling efficiency, because pawns can now carry more than one gun or t-shirt. Those smart and intelligent colonists can use their inventory! You gotta see it to believe it.

If possible, colonists that can haul will haul stuff to their inventory, pick up one more item to haul to a stockpile and then unload their inventory. Colonists that have traveled far to haul something, will look further to haul other items to haul. This distance is dynamic, thanks to AlexTD.

Colonists will unload themselves:
- At semi-regular intervals, if their inventory contains multiple items.
- When their inventory has reached a certain mass limit.
- When they haul something else to a stockpile.
- When they're idle.

You can tell colonists to pick up an item and keep it in their inventory. They will remember what they have and keep it on their person. This is very practical for field doctoring, or for animal trainers taming herds of animals.

Want field-doctoring to be even better? Use Smart Medicine by Uuugggg and doctors will automatically use the meds in their inventory.

- Only player-owned humanlikes can use their inventory to haul. Rule of thumb: If you can order it to equip a gun or wear a pair of pants, it'll use their inventory to haul for you. No guests, animals pretending to be robots, dogs, prisoners, or whatever else.

- The unloading isn't 100% perfect, but it's pretty darn close.

Compatibility notes:

- Works great with AllowTool's Haul Urgently.

I cannot pick up a corpse it's too heavy!
- You need a storage stockpile configured to accept corpses. Make a dumping zone.

Balance notes:
On the one hand this takes away a frustration of mine, but I can't deny that it won't make the game at least somewhat easier. You can bring back some of that challenge again with my other mods like Sun Tzu Raider Tactics or Climate Cycle ++.

There is a huge bug with this mod where my colonists lose the ability to consume anything from the beginning in certain games. Ive also had one instance where they could eat but could not haul anything. This was not due to any traits or restrictions. The issues only resolved once disabling this mod. Im on version 1.2.

Works with 1.2, the only issue being is that it doesn't work with caravans.

This works for me, as intended, in 1.2.

@Heckerpecker It did not work until after I reloaded the game. Pawns were not filling their inventory on initial map load, but started doing it when I came back later. This may be where some people are having problems ... ?
