Description
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.

ok will try it again
RedDwarf  [author] Jun 4 @ 5:58am 
@jaredw995: Nope! When you install the mod, you'll just have additional foundation engrams that you can unlock, which allow you to build new foundations. =) If you uninstall the mod, those new foundations will disappear.

@snowhawk: For sure, I'll add the square variants on my next update.
jaredw995 Jun 4 @ 4:33am 
do you need to start a new game
snowhawk May 27 @ 8:52am 
are there any chance that you can make it so that thatch and wood foundation also can be chanced to the box look ?
Abyss May 12 @ 5:17pm 
Does this still work with the vanilla stuff since the homestead update? Like can I snap the new homestead structures to it?
RedDwarf  [author] May 12 @ 5:06pm 
Hey, Abyss: Yeah, I'm still planning to update this -- but I've got a lot of mods/projects to maintain, and I'm in the middle of a big project, so this one's relatively low priority.
Abyss May 12 @ 4:38pm 
Is this ever gonna get updated? You said you were gonna add triangles,but that was months ago? So what happened?
RedDwarf  [author] Mar 20 @ 3:30pm 
Hey Darkspear: You can make the blueprints with or without the folder view, you just need the engram unlocked first. So for example, if I place the notebook crafting station, and learn both Thatch Foundation and Stackable Thatch Foundation, then the crafting station has 4 options available:

Create: Stackable Thatch Foundation
Upgrade: Thatch Foundation --> Stackable
Downgrade: Stackable --> Thatch Foundation
Create Blueprint: Stackable Thatch Foundation

If you have the folders enabled, then you'll need to click the "Create Blueprints" folder to see it. If you have folders disabled, then all 4 recipes will be visible in the crafting station. =)
Darkspear Mar 20 @ 4:25am 
Update on the whole making blueprints i wrote a few comments ago:
Apparently you have to set it to folderwiev in order to get the folder: Create Blueprints.
You need 1 charcoal and 1 note.

You cant make blueprints if you have it set to show all with no folder.
