Remove Need For Pipes

This mod removes the need to place pipes all over your city.

If you also don't want to waste time building power lines you can use my Remove Need For Power Lines mod.

How it works
This mod works simply by storing the water, sewage and heating produced in small, separate (of course), buffers and then distributing it to buildings that consume each of those resources.

You need to connect at least one pipe per water processing facility (as shown in the third picture above) or else the facility won't work. This is working as intended since fixing it would require this mod to overwrite one more function and it is not worth the possible incompatibilities with other mods.

To report any bug please post a comment with a link to the output_log.txt
Any comments saying the mod does not work with no link to the log file will be deleted.

This mod uses the Harmony[] library.

Oh man, this mod saved my city which I had already running on YouTube for 77 episodes. During episode 78 I freed up 5,000+ nodes. It's a temporary fix but with all those nodes I can go on for a while until I am happy. Many thanks for this.

@Eistei -- Hmmm. Are you using any other mods with any built-in feature that effects water?

You could also try.....

From the desktop:
Unsubscribe this mod.
Load the game to the main menu.
Exit to the desktop.
Resubscribe this mod.

...and see if this fixes it.

@Lemonster Sure, but yes, I always do that - I've been using it without problems before

@Eistein -- Just asking...did you follow the directions in the description, including the "attention" section pointing you to the third picture?

Does anybody have ideas what this might be in conflict with? Have the same problem as Kookess... IStarted a new city, but the citizens don't get any water, with or without pipes... I don't have any other water mods, and have already dumped a bunch of outdated mods with the help of Mod Compatibility Checker. I know MCC ain't a fix it all, but I'm at a loss

Nice mod BTW, saves loads of faffing about.
