Build Bigger!

This mod adds a new item called "Extended Raft" which looks and acts exactly the same as a wooden raft, but allows for larger builds.

Here is how it differs from the standard wooden raft:
- Max Build Distance: 3000 (approximately a 10 block radius from the center), up from 1400
- Max Build Height: 3000 (approximately 16 blocks high), up from 1100
- Max Supported Structures: 2000, up from 70
- Max Health: 50000, up from 20000
- Can travel in reverse (at half speed). Helps with parking!
- Can zoom camera out much farther. Multiple zoom levels - scroll mouse wheel one tick at a time to choose a level that works for your build.

The extended raft can be learned at level 21 for 1 engram point, and requires the wooden raft as a prerequisite. The building cost is 400 wood, 200 thatch, 100 hide.

Here is the full path to the extended raft item, in case you want to cheat spawn it:


Here is the engram name, if you want to modify it in your server settings:

Want to build a farm on your raft? Check out my Raft Pipes mod!

Note: To build beyond the initial 3x3 foundations, you will need to build a thatch roof, then attach a foundation under it. You can then remove the thatch roof and the foundation will remain. This is the same thing that has to be done with the wooden raft. (Foundations will not snap to the side of other foundations when there is nothing under/over them to cling to.)

Note: The above thatch roof building method does work, and has consistently worked for me every time I have tried it over the past few months. If it does not work for you, try moving the raft to slightly deeper water. If the water is too shallow, it can sometimes prevent the foundation placement.

Warning: Excessive building of large moving structures can degrade server performance. That is why WildCard has not already made a raft like this. (They tune things for official servers which have many players and shared hardware.) If you are on a heavily populated server where many people want to build large rafts, you may start to get server lag. How much has to be built before it becomes noticeable depends on how powerful the server hardware is.

Love that using vanilla things does allow me to really extend my raft. I am however having a huge problem. The views are not working at all. I scroll back and my feet stay firmly planted on the deck. I get zero elevation. So when I start adding anything/levels to my raft I will not be able to see a thing. Vanilla rafts work fine.

Will this ever work with s+ foundations?
Yippee38 Jul 16, 2019 @ 10:26am 
Ragna is correct. However, once you build your extended raft base to the size you want, you can replace all non-S+ foundations with S+ foundations.

Hey! Is there an option to make the raft even more bigger?
Kaputtschino Jun 10, 2019 @ 10:38am 
does this apply for the the raft with the motor too?
Ragna May 16, 2019 @ 5:41am 
I'd like to make people aware that the extension of the raft doesn't work if you use S+ Foundations or Ceilings, they need to be regular! :lunar2019grinningpig:
