Pillars Plus

Fully adjustable pillars.

New Structures:

- Wood/Stone/Metal Straight Pillars
- Wood/Stone/Metal Straight Round Pillars
- Wood/Stone/Metal Sloped Pillars
- Wood/Stone/Metal Sloped Round Pillars


1.) Place pillar under ceiling(there are 4 set snap points but feel free to choose any and then set it to whatever rotation you want).

2.) Interact with pillar using 'E' and choose desired length, rotation, slope and/or thickness.

You can save and load settings to save time when you need to set a bunch of pillars to the same settings.


- Freely rotate pillars to any angle you wish.

- Pillars can be extended as long as needed.

- Set any slope for the pillars.

- Pillars can be thickened(note: too thick and too shallow a slope will cause them to protrude the attached ceiling

- Pillars act as a foundation without needing to intersect the ground(this was done to bypass the Z direction check for foundation on exceptionally long pillars).

- Pillars are pickup-able.

- Metal pillars are crafted in your inventory(not smithy) to keep the mod stackable and reduce clutter of third party smithys.

Config Options:

Place the following in your gameusersettings.ini file and set whatever values you wish. Values under 1 are ignored(will be treated as no limit).



Simple, effective, and awesome!

@Fabs20, i was having the same problem with resetting Pillars, only it wasn't just one with mine... it was multiple... My solution use the rounded Straight Versions they can be placed in the air even without acctually needing and foundation support but still provide the support anyway (it's Magic)

@Acheron , so they used to be able to snap to those? I just assumed after trying these pillars out last night that they couldnt snap to those parts. so I started using S+ ceilings/foundations as a base snap point for the new pillars then expanded around them with the castles&Keeps stuff.

unable to place the pillars on the castles and keeps structures anymore

This mod is awesome but I'have an issue: One of my pillar (yes just 1) always reset when i reload my singleplayer game. The settings are always there but not applied...
I must aplly it every time i come back to my game...
Does someone have a solution?
Thank you @orionsun !

My original issue with this mod for myself anyway is you used to be able to set the foundation check to be wider than normal. The buildings you build with them end up looking like either a bunch of toothpicks or columns too thick to make them look pleasing.
