Remove Cryopods

MOD ID: 1896198862

⠀•⠀⠀This mod remaps vanilla Cryopods into Crystal (resource).
⠀•⠀⠀This mod removes the vanilla Cryopod engram.
⠀•⠀⠀This mod needs to be loaded before any other mod that remaps vanilla Cryopods.
⠀•⠀⠀This mod does not necessarily need to be loaded first (see above).

⠀•⠀⠀Just install onto your server and say good-bye to vanilla Cryopods going forward.
⠀•⠀⠀Does not effect Cryopods that exist already when the mod is installed.

⠀⠀⠀Loading times are not about number of mods, but mod size. This mod (0.5mb) will load fast! Your standard HDD has a read/write speed ranging from 80-160mb per second and SSD's are even faster with a read/write speed of 200-550mb per second.

⠀⠀⠀I primarily give support through Discord because I get notified when you @Lethal or directly message me. This lets me respond quicker, and allows my community to provide feedback in a more efficient manner. Steam does not notify me in a similar fashion, so I deprioritize it. I do not mind Discord pings—I actually encourage it—because I'm here to ensure you can enjoy using my mod.

@Lethal We haven't really spoken yet, but Thanks for considering my friend request!
It took me some time to have some room to breath, and to revisit this mod, wasn't expecting a quite detailed response.

I understood most of your points and i have to agree with you on those. Dependance is never a good thing.

Perhaps the "best" solution, even though it is a single personal preference from me, would be to make only a single config to allow players to decide for themselves if they want to keep the Cryofridges unlocked and available, entirely, or not. If that is really possible to begin with.

If you are really considering my purposal, then we could roll a poll.
I'm fine with how it will turn out. I'm just glad to have something that removes the cryopods from the game.

• It's possible to remove the cryofridge too, but I wasn't sure if players used other cryopod mods that needed it to recharge. Also, wasn't sure if they are part of loot drops and would be useful to grind up.
• Remapping it with my DS items would make this mod dependent on having DS installed. The game crashes when it remaps to a null entry (DS reference would null if not installed).
• Remaps can't be optional with ini unfortunately. Certain things don't like to be modified at run-time, and this is one of those cases.

You have valid points, but I was trying to make the mod be stackable without dependencies. Though, the majority of subscribers for this mod are likely using DS as well. Should we do a poll?

Is it possible to expand a bit the mod and remove the cryofridge from the engrams as well?
Currently i disabled the engram through the ini files.

Would be possible to replace the cryopods with your own Soul Crystals and Cryofridge with your own Soul Terminal?

Like an optional and simple config on .ini files.

Honestly not sure how far you want to go with this, i quite enjoy the mod as it is only felt the need to report some thoughts that i had after testing it out. Thanks!

This mod combined with DS makes the game way more balanced. Would recommend it to everyone who doesn't like how cheaty and non-configurable the cryopods are.

Focus decisively! Thank you!

I made this mod at a user request, as they found a need for it. Hiding the engram does not effect the loot table drops so this mod helps remove cryopods cleanly. In a short summary, this mod can be useful if you are running any of the various "easy cryopod" mods to remove cryosickness and don't want to confuse them from the vanilla ones that would cause cryosickness. Or, if you are running my own DS mod and don't want people to use cryopods to skirt around some of the finer options that DS provides.

If you need to ask why, than you have no need for this mod. If you have no need for this mod, than don't use it. I'm not here on a holy crusade, nor do I care if you thumb down this mod. Just know that your needs do not equal the needs of everyone. All further comments will be deleted due to repetitious questioning.
