Sloppy Chop

This is a simple mod that adds some new bills to the stonecutting bench, with the intent of clearing chunks, rather than creating blocks.

Picture this: You're building a mountain base and running the excellent Quarry mod to mine for resources. Everything's going great, but you quickly realize that you have about 10,000 chunks and nowhere to put them, and your colonists just can't keep up with the stonecutting requirement. This mod aims to handle that.

Sloppy stonecutting:
- Uses 3 chunks, rather than 1
- Gives 25 blocks, rather than 20
- Takes about half as long as a standard stone cut
- Causes some rock rubble filth to appear, which must be cleaned

What this means:
- You're losing 35 potential blocks per sloppy cut
- You're disposing of chunks 6x faster
- In other words, you're able to very rapidly clear your map of chunks at the cost of block production

Lorewise, your colonists are just going quantity over quality. Instead of precisely cutting one chunk, they just hack haphazardly at three chunks until they're gone, and are left with a good amount of usable blocks.

Compatible with existing saves.
Load order shouldn't matter, unless you have something that directly changes stonecutting benches, in which case just try loading both before/after and report back which one works.
If you want to remove this mode from a save, delete any Sloppy bills from all your stonecutting benches before doing so. Alternatively you can just remove the mod, but then you'll have to deconstruct and reconstruct your stonecutting bench before it will be usable.

@PKPenguin using mod check you can add patches based on if mods are loaded. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1512517973

If you want a example of it in progress. you can look at my bulk stonecutting mod. It's very easy to do.

Might not be hard to make an additional mod that can be added on to modded stones. What mod are you looking to add to?

Unfortunately no due to the way it's implemented.

is there a way to make this compatable with modded stone?

Awesome! I'm using this immediately to very rapidly clear my map of chunks at the cost of block production hell yea 666 Thank you!

They're the same as standard blocks. The only "sloppy" part is the process of creating them. The output blocks are otherwise identical to the ones you get from regular stonecutting.

Quick q, what can you do with sloppy blocks? Can you still build furniture/walls/etc with them? Is there a change in the building requirements for sloppy blocks? Thank you, v interested in your response
