Fluffy Breakdowns

Replaces random breakdowns with a maintenance requirement.

Buildings using components will now gradually deteriorate. The odds of a breakdown happening (and requiring replacement components), is directly linked to the amount of deterioration.

To keep your machinery in top shape, your colonists with the construction work enabled will periodically maintain components. As long as components are properly maintained, they cannot randomly break down.

I’m very interested in any feedback on how these changes affect the difficulty of the game. I’ve tried to balance it so that it’s not too hard/easy - but I’m just one person with one playstyle.

@Fluffy thanks for the response

@Doug; there's an experimental v1.0 version on GitHub, you'll have to install it manually for now. I'll update all of my mods on steam once 1.0 is officially released.

@Unreal; Those already exist. Hardened and Nano-Infused components.

Could make it a research to reduce the deterioration of each object. Maybe put it later in the tech tree or make it more expensive to deter obtaining it early and making it too easy.

@Wellech; I'm not a huge fan of setting the threshold so low, it's kind of dangerous, especially since most people will never change the default. As for making the threshold change with the number of objects, that's an interesting thought. I'll think about it!

Alright, thanks.

awesome, thanks

@MrTacocorn; yep, no problems. You'll get some errors on removing it, but even that should be fine after another save+load.

Remember though, NEVER TRUST MODDERS, always make a backup first!
