Better snaps, More sizes, More angles, Bend's Tees's and Crosses without intersection piece, solar power and a real sprinkler head for your crops.

This mod is complete and will not be receiving any more updates unless an ARK update somehow breaks it. ENJOY!

Initial Launch 3-30-16

(3-15-16) I got tired of never being able to do what needed to be done with the vanilla water pipe and electrical cable system so about three weeks ago I downloaded the Ark Development Kit and started looking at tutorials as I dove into this engine for the first time. With that in mind, please keep an eye out for any bugs or issues with the mod and let me know.

Created a new set of PNC Metal and Stone water pipes and structures.

Created a new set of PNC Power Cables and structures.

Intersection pieces not needed because bends, tees and crosses can be made from the pipes themselves.

PNC Pipes and Cables have many new directional options including 90 and 45 degree connections.

Horizontals more closely match the length of a wall.

Verticals more closely match the height of a wall.

Inclines more closely match the length and slope of a roof.

Added half and quarter length pieces for horizontal, vertical and incline pipes and cables with adjusted craft resource needs.

Improved the snap points on all of the pieces.

Improved the piece names so that you can see the important parts in the tips.

Improved descriptions.

Corrected the texture on the vertical metal water pipe.

Centered the floating text HUD on the Metal and stone intakes.

Increased the storage capacity of the reservoirs.

Removed the blue flickering light intensity on the power outlet.

Allowed the reservoirs to be placed on anything.

Allowed pipes to connect "from" the reservoir so it could be the start point of a network.

All pieces can be used on a raft or saddle platform (for platforms the intake will likely be too far from the water so you will likely need to use the PNC Reservoirs as your water source).

Most pieces ignore collision.

All pieces can be picked up. The pickup option has been moved from the default position so no accidental pickups.

All craft times reduced by half.

All new icons.

All pieces require that you learn the vanilla equivalent structure before learning the new engram at zero engram points.

Added Polymer to the electric cable crafting resources.

PNC Stone Pipes are crafted in the players inventory under Structures -> Pipes -> PNC

Added new structure: Work Table. Allows you to craft all of the PNC metal and power structures. Runs on gasoline. Crafted in the players inventory right next to the vanilla smithy under structures -> crafting.

Added new structure: Metal Sprinkler. Provides water for growing crops. All new particle emitter for more appropriate water effects.

Added new structure: Battery. Forms the base for the PNC Solar Panel and gives a solution to "How am I getting power at night?". Power Cables snap to the base of the pipe behind the pallet.

Added new structure: Solar Panel. Snaps to the PNC Battery. Renewable energy from the sun. Silent power that needs no fuel. Has a somewhat more intensive resource need to build.

Added new structure: Power Generator. Same appearance as vanilla generator. 25% smaller, 50% quieter and able to be locked and picked up.

All parts should still connect to vanilla parts though I can't see why you would want to.

This mod would not have been possible without the many good people in the ARK-Modding Discord. A few notable names: Ionic_Ovrdose, Mezzo, Mezdonian, ZenRowe, P0k3r and iSpeZz but all of the folks there are as helpful as anyone can be.
Special thanks to Ionic_Ovrdose for models and My Fiance for Icon textures.

Hi @luap @ionic_ovrdose, thanks for your amazing mod ! I have a question, did you plan to put the option show and hide?

Exactly how do you get the direction placement you want with the pipes? I'm not having any more luck than the vanilla option.
