Building Overhaul mod - Long-Term Crafting Projects

The mod requires you to start CrafTecs (working name) on squares, then add parts like planks and nails. After that, you can start working on the object. If you only have half of the necessary parts, you can start building the object up to 50% completion (or whatever fraction of parts you have).

Objects take a LOT longer than they did before. Walls take half an hour, stairs four hours, crates one hour and so on. It always felt weird putting up walls and stairs in minutes.
To counterbalance that long time, you can stop the project at any time and resume working on it later. You can even share the work between different people!

The code also allows for objects to require certain level in different skills and even allows for certain profession. This way you could, for example, require a nurse with experience in Blunt-Maintenance to build a certain object.
You can also require MULTIPLE professions / skilllevels for a single object.

You can also require different tools to build things. Hammers, saws, blowtorches, a waterscale, a pen, a piece of paper, anything!

As a apart note, we have found a bug, or malfunction, in theory. It is possible to access the craftec menu, to build something, even when there is a building covering the square. But after that, we can not interact with the construction. We can not begin, continue, or deconstruct it.

I remember that in previous builds of vanilla happened the same thing at the time of grab the corpses.

I am currently using this mod on my server with a few friends. The realism that adds to the game is incredible. Thank you very much for the mod.

Is there any possibility that the mod will be updated soon for use of the multistage vanilla function?

Yes, when I got the time, I will update this to the multistage functionality.

Have you got planned to continue with this mod?

I loved the idea and I think the carpentry in the game should be like this.

not sure if it is this mod, or somethingg else i'm usingg, haen't gone through and used only this mod alone. But, ever since I've installed this mod, i'm no longger able to add sheet ropes to windows so i can climb up and down to the 2nd story of my house. Kind of an issue when I plan to make a new base in the woods with no ground floor access.

hope it's not youur mod causeing it. will look into thhe issue to make sure. causue I loe using youur mod for building and haiving the ability ot partially make thinggs and then come back with more supplies when I have them.

Would love adjusting wall health as an option. So fort building doesn't come down to 'find base, knock out stairs' like it currently does.

Thanks! This mod doesn't have much - if any - overlap with More building. This mod here changes the way things are built - and has hooks fro other mods to use. More building adds a lot many more options to build in the game.
While More building could very well hook into Craftec, there's no "common goal" I'm afraid.

更多建筑(More building)
