  • Climbable defensive wall towers (stairs are hidden inside)
  • New ramp attachment points
  • The lights built into some Defensive Wall/Tower/Gate models can be switched on
  • Signs snap to light nodes for easier placement
  • Functionality added to Fishing Rods, Fish Drying Racks, Oil Drills and Oil Refineries
  • The largest buildings are appropriately difficult to construct
  • All walls can be destroyed
  • Unique destroyed meshes for Old Storm House and lagoon buildings
  • Many building mesh fixes
  • Changed the brightness of some old texture files
  • Added transparency or emissive glow to some building materials
  • Improved collision for some buildings
  • Previously unfinished buildings from the game files have been completed: twelve so far and more to come

Many things can only be learnt from blueprints, which can be bought or looted from locations where the buildings are found. If you really dislike this idea, or have already visited the location of a blueprint you wanted, there is the option to use the research bench instead.

If you're having trouble finding a blueprint this list should help.

Also, I can only select the mounted crossbows through the shift + F12 menu, but I cannot seem to fix the fact that I cannot select it.

Hey, I am having issues with the mounted crossbows in the bunkers, I cannot select them, they just clip into the walls, anyone got a solution for this?

I am pretty capable in the FCS. How do you "add" buildings to be able to be placed on the "lagoon Platform" I have Azuchi Buildings and am trying to fiddle with stats on both to get them to place but cant seem to see a conflicting option or option to add compatibility. Am happy to do it myself if you say what you do to get buildings to place on the platforms.

Thanks for your time.

Are you still working on this?

iv mentioned it before. but is there a way for you to add a upgraded lagoon platform with a gate on it? its kinda pointless to bother building it atm unless you wall off the whole place

Could you maybe replace a window on the second floor of the double house with a doorway?
The balcony has so much space but there is no way to get there.

Thanks for the screenshots and mod list. The issue is not related to any of those mods. Is the floor tilted? I'm not sure why, but I found that can cause the problem you described.

I'll see if I can do something about the building slope affecting where you can place the thrones.

Got some screenshots to show what's going on:
Shown here is what happens when it's placed facing the door. It just turns red and says it's too close to another building.
Here's what happens when I turn it 180 degrees, in the exact same spot. Suddenly it lets me place it down.

Normal throne does the same thing. Place on the platform doesn't seem to change anything, the direction is all that seems to matter. (sorry for spamming the comments btw)
