Flickable Storage

In 1 collection by Mlie
Developed by me
95 items

Storage-buildings and stockpiles can be set to one of four settings

  • Storage on - Works as normal
  • Storage off - Will not accept or release any items
  • Accept only - Pawns can only store items, not retrieve them
  • Retrieve only - Pawns can only retrieve items, not store them

Your prison cells have a storage unit for food, but when there is no prisoners. You want to stop hauling food for it without changing storage filters or priorities. You turn the shelf to retrieve only when there are no prisoners.

You want to have a stack of steel left at all times for emergency trap-building. You set one shelf to store only with highest priority.

The blocking of storing new items is done by modifying the Accept-check for the storage.
The blocking of retrieving items is done by modifying the Forbidden check for the items in the storage. Pawns with mental break ignores the forbidden check so they will still be able to fetch items.

Should work with all mods that add storage buildings using the IHaulDestination class. Tested for example with LWM's Deep Storage
Will also change flick-setting in all linked storages.

NOTE: Chunks cannot be forbidden so are ignored by this mods settings. You can fix this by adding [XND] Forbiddable Debris

notfood: Support for Multiplayer, optimization and generalization
Waveshaper: Debugging
HawnHan: Chinese translation
Velcroboy333: Original idea

My apology. Was too excited about the new mod.
I removed my comment.

@pureMJ Promoting your own mod on other mod-pages… Really?

I'm not sure if it is this mod or another one because it's a three way interaction that is causing this bug but when you are using 'Flickable Storage', 'Packable Containers' AND 'Vanilla Nutrient Paste Expanded' the gizmo for Packable Containers disappears.

Flickable Storage + Packable Containers = Fine
Flickable Storage + VNPE = Fine
Packable Containers + VNPE = Fine

Use all three and Packable Containers' gizmo breaks. Load order does not seem to matter. I've tried every combination.

Been using this for so long that I forgot this wasn't a vanilla thing lmao. It's super useful in certain situations!

A fifth setting "empty the storage" could be possible please?

I have a shelf in my cell, set to receive 1 stack of meals. When the cell is empty, I want to send back the meals to the freezer (for now I have to lower the priority to do that).

Thank you ~

@Yoann Should be fixed now, will now change setting in all linked storages

Great mod!
Only complaint: the setting don't apply to linked storage, unintuitive and impractical to switch the setting of large group of shelves.

@Monsieur Bambi try KanbanStockpile mod

Does anyone know if theres a mod that lets you limit how much can be set in a storage? So lets say 75 herbal meds could be stored in a shelf, near livestock so you dont have to run to africa to fetch some if you get a plague breakout?
