Stackable Foundations!

Are you frustrated with foundations? Having trouble finding a perfectly flat place to build? This mod's for you!

Features:
  • Stackable (on top or bottom)
  • Foundations can be side-snapped 1/2 height of a wall up or down
  • Completely compatible (and stackable!) with standard foundations
  • No collision!
  • Can be picked up! (can disable pickup in the server settings)
  • Zero engram cost, requires standard foundation engram ("Stackable Stone Foundation" requires "Stone Foundation")
  • Craftable in inventory, same material cost as standard foundation


New Version!
Features:
  • Stackable Tek Foundation added!
  • Crafting station added! Details below.
  • To help prevent accidental placements, foundation will no longer replace each other if they're the same type, and both at full health.
  • All foundations now respect the building prevention zones.
  • All foundations now do a manual ground-check, which allow them to be buried deeply into the ground (and prevent attached foundations from breaking when removed).
  • Foundations will now show a "Ground Status" when looking at the structure. If a foundation is stacked, the status will read "No Ground Contact", to warn you that it is being supported by other foundations. (Can be disabled)
  • You can now set a custom pickup time for all structures, if you choose. The default is 1 second. (See Below)
  • All foundations have had their max placement heights adjusted.
  • There are now Two Engrams for Stackable Adobe Foundation:
    • One engram allows you to buy Stackable Adobe Foundation for free if you already have Adobe Foundation (for playing on Scorched Earth)
    • The other engram allows you to buy Stackable Adobe Foundation for 6 Engram points, even if you don't have the Adobe Foundation engram (for players outside of Scorched Earth, by request)
    • If you don't want both engrams, you can hide one of them in the INI settings with an EngramOverride command.


Crafting Bench (Note Book)
  • This small notebook stand can be placed on the floor as a podium, or can transform into a small book stand if placed on a table.
  • Can craft all foundations, if you've unlocked the engram.
  • Can upgrade or downgrade foundations from stackable to/from vanilla (regardless of whether or not you know the engram).
  • Can craft portable blueprints for each stackable foundation (if you've unlocked the engram), so you can take them to your favorite crafting station, or give them to tribemates, etc.
  • All foundations have had their max placement heights increased to allow building anywhere.

Hey guys! I've had a lot of people ask about how to stack foundations, so I've open-sourced the "base" foundation. From this example, you can make child blueprints that have whatever stats/graphics you want, if you're making your own custom foundations. Check the ReadMe file for additional information. All I ask is that you credit me if you use the code, and link back to this mod. =)

Enjoy!

@Beast: S+ uses the methods/ideas from this mod, but not the same actual structures. You can run both mods side-by-side, but if you uninstall Stackable Foundations then all of the "Stackable Foundations" will disappear. Hope that helps!

Hi @RedDwarf one more question. What happens in case I'll uninstall this mod to use S+ instead. Will my buildings survive because S+ is using your foundations too or will everything getting destroyed?
Beast™ May 7 @ 12:28pm 
@RedDwarf Thank you for answering that fast. Indeed it would be great If you could add a feature like that.
RedDwarf  [author] May 7 @ 11:34am 
@Beast: Not without picking them up, converting them, and replacing them. I should make a tool that lets you convert all connected foundations -- that sounds like a great feature. =)

Can I up- or downgrade foundations on already existing buildings?

@Zaphod4th: I don't think any of those will stack on top of my Stackable Foundations, but most of them use the same side-to-side snap-points. Everybody copied this mod a little differently, so there's no guarantee that they're compatible.
