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.

I can confirm this works great and ive been using it along side many different mods (hint you need to place water producing buildings still for it to work)

Mod works for me, but it definitely has issues since I started to work with the water tanks from Natural Disasters DLC. In my water-info-view, I can clearly see, that I produce enough fresh water to shutdown one of my pumps. Still, when I shut it down, the water tank runs empty and parts of my city start complaining about having not enough water, although the indicator in the info-view is still way too far in the green area. Don't have the issue without the mod. Spend hours adding water lines to my 800k-city. Totally worth it.

Works great. if it doesn't work then read the description

@Bearded-Gamer -- does. I'm using it right now. Did you follow the instructions? You still have to place and manage water intake (pump) and outtake (sewage). Here's an example of how I set up one in a previous city:

@Dubs It works fine for me, what isn't working for you? Did you connect a water pipe onto every water and sewage facility, as the description tells?
