Simple Roof

A simple roof building mod to help secure your base.

The roof panels can be accessed to dismantle, but only from inside the base.

Now includes a floor, a wall and a wooden pillar.

To build a roof, wall or floor kit, you'll need 10 planks and 40 nails. A wooden pillar requires 1 log and 10 nails. You can build the step ladder with 4 planks and 10 nails.

The roof and wall can only be dismantled from inside the base, but the floor and pillar can be dismantled by anyone using a sledgehammer. BEWARE: If the floor is floating, players can dismantle it from underneath.

It's still a work in progress. Use with caution, because I haven't fully tested persistence. I don't know exactly how long the items will last! There is also an issue where sometimes after placing the roof, you can't stand on top of it. Re-logging fixes this.

I've included a step ladder in the mod to help with roof construction.

I might also add some more panels and base parts in future. Let me know in the comments if you have any suggestions.

The step ladder is also included in my Coffin Mod (different colour variation, so you can still use both mods):

Credit to OP, I only managed to get this working by studying OP_Baseitems:

and credit to Hennessy who fixed all the issues.
Check out his mod Sneaky Stashes and Stuff:

Server owner instructions:

2. Copy ChopperRoof.bikey file from the keys folder to your keys folder.
3. Add "-mod=@Simple Roof" to your server startup parameters.
4. Merge types.xml (located in mpmissions\dayzOffline.chernarusplus\db) with the file provided.
5. OPTIONAL: Merge TraderConfig.txt (located in YOURSERVERPROFILE\Trader) with the file provided.

Changed size of roof panel to 10x10, to help with testing.
Hopefully fixed missing textures.
Fixed missing textures.
Complete overhaul. Huge thanks to Hennessy for basically re-writing the whole mod from scratch.
Update types.xml and TraderConfig.txt
Fixed GardenPlot issue.
Added floor, wall and wooden pillar items.
Update types.xml and TraderConfig.txt
Small fix to stop players placing the gardenplot anywhere. Thanks to Cleetus for the tip.
Slightly raised the height of the roof to cover walls.
Made it clearer to players that the wall and floor are raidable.
Now, only a sledgehammer will destroy a wall, floor or pillar. The sledgehammer will be ruined after destroying.
Fixed the draw distance issue.
New secure wall that can only be dismantled from inside.
The old wall can no longer be crafted, I've left it in the mod, so players can replace them over time.
The step ladder can now be crafted with 4 planks and 10 nails.
The step ladder can no longer be placed, because it was sitting under the ground and may have been causing issues.
Created a new key to prevent players exploiting glitches with earlier versions of the mod.
SERVER OWNERS: Update types.xml with the new wall (ChopperWall2) and add the new key.
Now fully compatible with BaseBuild+ and Sneaky Stashes!
(You may have to wait for their incoming updates).
Massive thanks to Cleetus for identifying the problem.
It should now be compatible with all other mods, let me know if not.
1.02 compatibility fix
Made the roof and floor more square shaped.
Fixed potential server crash thanks to the mighty Cleetus.
More compatibility fixes thanks to Cleetus!
Step Ladder overhaul thanks again to Cleetus!!
Placement overhaul also thanks to Cleetus!!!
SERVER OWNERS: Please update your types.xml (and TraderConfig.txt if using Trader mod).
Fixed base parts being destroyed by bullets.

You are free to do whatever you like with this mod. Hopefully someone who actually knows what they're doing can improve on it!
Seeing as most of the mod has been re-written by Hennessy, you should seek permission from him first.

Have fun!

@Chopper they are persistent but they unspawn after around 3 hours

They should be persistent. Check that your types.xml has the latest classnames added Apr 20 @ 7:12pm 
@Chopper do you happen to know why the walls, roofs, and floors aren't persistent?

@Chopper Awesome news man!
Chopper  [author] Apr 20 @ 6:50am 
@itsJay46 This mod will become just a roof mod once BaseBuildingPlus goes stable (hopefully in the next couple of weeks). I plan to upload the wall, floor and stepladder in a separate mod for people who want to carry on using them and this mod will just contain the roof
itsJay46 Apr 20 @ 6:26am 
Hello mate, may it be possible for you to create another mod that only contains the roof? We don't want our players to glitch into bases with them step ladders. Would be extremly nice for many server owners to just have the roof, ty :steamhappy:

hello chopper could you please tell what was the inventorySlot= of ladder when we could carry it on us ?
Chopper  [author] Apr 19 @ 7:54am 
Yeah that's a real issue. I wondered why some parts occasionally despawned :/
