Pythagoras Support Beams

Description

Multigun's Discord Link[discord.gg]

Pythagoras Support Beams is a mod that allows players more freedom for building pillar-less designs into their bases and bridges. The support beams carry infinite stability as long as it's initial stability source is above 0. If you want a very long bridge without super long pillars, or maybe you want a high ceiling, both of those are excellent examples of where this mod excels.

Originally part of the main Pythagoras mod, this mod was separated out due to the PvP imbalance this mod can cause.

Highlights

Features horizontal beams for every tier, while offering normal and short versions depending on if you are connecting to a Wedge or Normal Ceiling. Here's the full breakdown:
  • Tier 1 - Modified Vanilla Decorative Beams that have been repurposed to offer actual stability in a variety of configurations. Known as Reinforced, they use similar designs to the vanilla beams but have been given lore friendly additions to make them "feel" stronger. Offered in this collection is a Vertical beam, an admin only diagonal beam, a double diagonal beam, horizontal beam, and a short horizontal beam.

  • Tier 2 - Modified Insulated Pillars have been repurposed to offer additional choices in the horizontal variety. Featured in this collection are a long diagonal beam, horizontal beam, and a short horizontal beam. The original wood long diagonal beam is also considered Tier 2 and remains part of the mod.

  • Tier 3 - Steel textures and static meshes are the offerings in this tier. Featured in this collection are horizontal rusted beams, short horizontal rusted beams, horizontal highlands steel beams, horizontal highlands short steel beams, rusted steel pillars, and highlands steel pillars.

Every mod piece has a unique Icon to help you identify it as a Pythagoras piece.

Known Issues
  • As of late June 2019, Funcom's official patch caused issues with how the beams were originally designed. When crossing the beams in an X or cross style, it would cause the beams to be destroyed on every server or game restart. After much effort, the beams have been revamped in an effort to prevent that. You'll find that you can still overlap in various conditions, you just won't be able to do so with the long versions of the beams anymore. The vast majority of the original functionality of the beams remains. If or when additional options are given from Funcom to ignore or bypass their new building validity system, we will restore the rest of the functionality to the beams.

  • There is and Admin only Tier 1 Diagonal Beam that is offered via the admin menu. It's there because Multigun couldn't find any way to make it so you could use it with full stability functionality and not have the ability to make it float in space. It's there if you want it though, but you'll find that it can "float" under various conditions.

  • LBPROE users: If you use this Support Beams mod with Multigun's LBPROE versions of Less Building Placement Restrictions, the ability to overlap beams won't be preventable. You will need to be aware of how you place the beams when using the two mods together. This isn't preventable. If you are a server owner, it is recommended you switch or use the normal LBPR versions.

  • If you are having trouble getting the mod to update, please see this thread.

    Multigun's Message and Commitment to His Minions (also known as users who pitty him and subscribe to his mods)

    As with many games with mod support, Conan Exiles mods often become out of date and even abandoned after an official update is released. Many users are, with good reason, wary of subscribing to mods because they are afraid that the author will give up on the mod, or that the mod will break their game if not updated when it needs to be. In April of 2018 I made a declaration, and I said that I would never, ever abandon my mods.

    That declaration still holds true today. You subscribed to my mods because you wanted these mods to improve Conan Exiles in a way that fits your needs and desires. That means you are putting your trust in me, in that my mods will remain up, available, and kept up to date with the latest versions of the game. I take that responsibility, very seriously. My mods will remain up to date. Period. End of discussion. Now then, with that said, go fourth, and pew pew and stabby stabby!

    Communication

    Due to the upcoming release of Conan Exiles on Epic Games Store, we are moving all communication to Discord as a centralized platform. While we will do our best to monitor Steam for comments, you stand a far greater chance of being heard on Discord.

    Finally, all bug reports must be done on Discord. No bug report submitted as a comment will be processed on Steam. Steam simply doesn't have the software necessary for the exchange of information needed for a proper bug report to be done.

I am unable to provide support on Steam. Please post to discord with detailed screenshots and reproduceable instructions on your issue.

And again, I am unable to do ANY mod updates, at all, for an undetermined amount of time.

I am seeing support being lost and supports no longer functioning after a server restart. Any fix for this or is it a hidden effect of 2.1?
Multigun  [author] Oct 29 @ 8:44pm 
Works fine. Tested it earlier.
SMooreAce Oct 29 @ 7:27pm 
No it doesnt. It runs fine with that mod running
Doc Holliday Oct 29 @ 6:57pm 
FYI: I got it to load without the game crashing. Haven't tried to create/making a beam yet..

his other mod: Pythagoras MOD #:880177231 does crash the game if in the mod list.
Piankhi Oct 28 @ 7:36pm 
I can confirm this mod works fine, no update needed!

@All

My computer crashed. I am unable to do ANY mod updates for an undetermined amount of time.

Please visit the discord for the latest information. And please, do not ignore this message and spam the workshop comment section to "update the mods."
Multigun  [author] Oct 28 @ 11:31am 
This mod likely works fine. The dedicated server app is reporting things as out of date, even if they were updated today.

Just like Gportal before it, saying a mod is "out of date" doesn't mean it doesn't work.

Oof, I use a lot of Multigun's mods too. I guess I'll have to wait. Hope things go well.
Multigun  [author] Oct 28 @ 11:05am 
Please post what bug you are seeing, not messages you see in the log.

As I posted on discord, I am NOT able to do ANY updates due to my computer hard drive failing. Please be considerate of that.
