QUICK GUIDE ___________________________________________________

The Blocks in this kit are as follows.

** 1 - Emergency Rations Dispenser ( Small Block Only )

Build-able with Survival Kit Components ( Tier 1 )
This small block only device takes GRAVEL and ICE and VERY Slowly Converts it to Emergency Food "Space Mush"and H2O Packets. Takes less than half the parts needed to make the Food Processor block. This is bare bones survival food with limitations to how well it satisfies your needs and how fast it can make it! You will want to upgrade to better Food Production Units as soon as you can. Using only this block you would be spending half your time making food and water to survive - barely! So Upgrade... or slowly perish...

Inputs - Ice, Gravel, H2O Packets
Outputs - Emergency Food Rations and H2O Packets.

** 2 - Food Protein Re-Sequencer ( Large and Small Block )

Build-able with Survival Kit Components ( Tier 1 )
This is the basic core block needed for basic survival system! Build this before the other support blocks below is recommended.

With This Block you can
- Boil ice into H2O Packets
- Create Nutrients for Hydroponics use.
- Process Organics and other Meat and vegetable components into basic and advanced foods.
- Clone / grow meat found in container drops on a metal grid to increase your food options.
- Recycle Water but at a greatly reduced leve vs the Water Recycler ( 50% loss of water )

Inputs - Ice, Gravel, H2O Packets, Organics, Vegan ToFu Packets, Various Meats, Algae-Soy Product, Grey Water
Outputs - Vegan ToFu Packets, Nutrients, Basic and Advanced Foods and Beverages.

Tho it will keep you alive, its basic survival food ( Artificial or SYNTH Food ) but still better than Emergency Rations.The other blocks produce the staples needed for better, more fulfilling foods. So, the better the materials input from the below blocks, the better the foods that it can output!

** 3 - Water Recycler ( Large and Small Block, Tier 2 Parts Required )

Inputs - Ice or Grey Water
Outputs - Organics, Gravel, H2O Packets

Much more efficient at making drinkable water, the ice it processes also produces needed organics and gravel for the other food processes.

** 4 - Open Hydroponics Block ( Large Block , Tier 2 Parts Required )

This Is the Basic Hydroponics Block. Its larger, but not as efficient and the Enclosed Hydroponics Block, but easier to build.

Inputs - Nutrients, Gravel, H2O Packets
Outputs - Algae-Soy Product

** 5 - Enclosed Hydroponics Block ( Large and Small block, Tier 2 Parts Required )

This Is the Advanced Hydroponics Block. Its smaller and more efficient / faster than the Open Cage Hydroponics Block. It requires more parts to make it.

Inputs - Nutrients, Gravel, H2O Packets
Outputs - Algae-Soy Product

** 6 - Soil Based Food Growing Tray ( Large Block, Tier 2 Parts Required )

This large block allows the use of seeds found in drop containers to make a wider variety of crops for advanced foods.

Inputs - Organics, Gravel, H2O Packets, Fertilizer ( Organic or Ore / Chemical based ), Crop Seeds
Outputs - Fertilizer, Crop Seeds, Edible Vegetable Crops.

** 7 - System and Inventory Readout LCD ( Large Block, Tier 2 Parts Required )

An LCD screen for use with a future control readout script. For now its a normal LCD. Great for MMASTER LCD readouts.

Use and Function ---------------------------------

FURNITURE AWARE - use a mod with beds chairs and toilets and you can get bonuses for sleeping, sitting and resting, eating seated etc.

Sleep in a bed - Stamina boosts up to 125 max. Sit on a couch or chair with NOMS in the name, get a food and water bonus up to 125. Sit on a toilet and your body processes Organics and Grey Water right away ( rather than waiting to eat ) into the suits catch all, which you can add to the food systems inventory for processing.

You Auto Eat / Drink from your inventory at 40 %. Not moving / flying, sitting, crouching all rest you , but at different speeds.

In all cases, starving, being thirsty for too long or over tired will damage you and possibly cause delusional states and then kill you.

When you respawn after ANY type of death, you will have Cloning - Shock Sickness! Your stats will be at marginal levels, you will want to eat, drink and rest as soon as you can!

No, unfortunately thats a long known glitch in the game itself when using modded assembler blocks.
Smooth n' Easy '71 Sep 18 @ 6:29pm 
having to select the assembler every time i want to make something is very annoying. is there any way to move this mod's blocks down in the assembler list so when i open the production tab it opens to the parts assemblers?
Skallabjorn  [author] Sep 12 @ 11:44pm 
Not at this time.

Any plans to further expand this mod? You already have food from "hunting", I think it would be neat to add husbandry. Nothing crazy, just similar to say Minecraft. Just lure an animal to a pen and look after them, for a reliable food source.
Skallabjorn  [author] Sep 5 @ 5:30am 
Its a mineral added to the game, its used in fertilizer. if you read the guide, more info there.

what is phosporus?

Your mod order as he says may be an issue, tho it is listed as an auto required dependency.
McCloud Jr Jul 26 @ 1:37pm 
Awhile back Keen Software added a piece of code to auto grab Required Mods for whatever mod your using (in this case it will auto grab Text HUD API for this mod).

This is true to basically all mods that have required items.

Please note however some mods need to be placed in a Load Order and sometimes the auto grab doesnt work (though this is very rare)

Do I need to manually subscribe to Text Hud and add it to my modlist, or as a dependency, will it be added automatically?
