Holiday Delight!

Why farm mistletoe for weeks just to build a Christmas tree? Ho-ho-ho, that's no good! Holiday Delight offers all of the cosmetic holiday event items in a single crafting station, for free! Create as many decorations as you'd like, and go crazy this holiday season.

The "Crafting Wreath" also serves as a music player! Listen to the "Winter Wonderland" theme while you decorate! Volume can be adjusted via config settings, or you can adjust the in-game music slider.

  • All "Winter Wonderland" cosmetic items available for free (no need to farm Mistletoe).
  • All players within range will hear the "Winter Wonderland" ARK theme music, if enabled on the Crafting Wreath.
  • No engram points required. The "Crafting Wreath" and all decorations are available for free.
  • Decorations give zero crafting XP (no cheating) and have zero weight (carry as many as you'd like).
  • Items will not disappear at the end of the event! Keep your holiday decorations up as long as you'd like!
  • Audio player is fully customizeable! Audio range, volume, and pitch can be configured. You can even make the audio play for your tribe only. (Details below...)
  • Small file size. The goal is to make a light-weight mod packed with fun holiday items that won't disappear when the holiday event ends.
  • You can place as many decorations as you like, there are no 'too many custom paintable structures in this area' limitations.
  • All placeable items have had their collision removed, so that you can place them where ever you want!
  • This mod is completely clean and stackable! You can install it in any order.

Patch Notes - Version 2.2!
  • New Item: Christmas Lamppost! Light your base with briliant white light from a festive victorian-themed wrot iron lamp post.
  • New Item: Holly! Place clusters of Holly on walls, ceilings, floors -- anywhere you want. They can be scaled to any size!
  • Updated Item: The Snowman has been updated with all the latest hat sockets! Ever wanted to put a Tek helmet on a snowman? Now you can! Should support every hat that's currently in the game.
  • Updated Item: The Holiday Delight Crafting Wreath (and music-box) has been updated so that the music can be adjusted via the music slider in the in-game UI. And you can always disable the music from the wreath's inventory, if you get sick of it. =)
  • Bug Fix: The Christmas Tree no longer plays the "thatch placement" sound when it's rendered.
  • Bug Fix: The Holiday Delight Crafting Wreath should no longer interfere with Awesome Spyglass. If you do have any problems, please let me know. =)
  • Bug Fix: The Stocking has been updated to re-allow custom sign text; players can write their names on their stockings again. Can't have Raptor Clause getting confused...


Future Plans:
  • Add additional texture/color options.
  • Animate the Christmas lights to change color/blink.
  • Add new holiday items, such as throwable snowballs, and much more! =)

(Default Values)
The default values should work great, but you can tweak them if you want. The "MusicRadius" is measured in number of foundations, to make it easy. By default, if a player is 8 foundations away from an active Crafting Wreath, the music will fade out and stop playing.

Hey guys, I'm looking into the issue people are having with the snowman. I'm getting reports that logging in near a Snowman can cause crashes for some people. I'm investigating, and I'll have an update out soon. In the meantime, if you have any problems, try removing your snowmen. Thanks!

I’ve been meaning to create a little UI for item-scaling, so you can just type whatever number you want. I’ll look into that. =) And yeah, I would just make min/max size a server config option, so server admins can decide what options are available. =)

I disagree about the 25 size. It's perfect for a Christmas tree for our base. I won't complain about making it larger either. The only suggestion I have is to remove the .25 increment. Seems wasteful to me. .5 maybe, or just round numbers.

@Bob: That makes sense. 25 is a bit too crazy. xD
RedDwarf  [author] Dec 17, 2018 @ 9:13pm 
@Axenus: I think everything is limited to tribe-members only, but that’s a good question — I’ll check!
Axenus Dec 17, 2018 @ 3:35pm 
You do excellent work! My server is very happy to have this mod. Does anyone know if I leave the gift boxes without a name can anyone access them? I'd like to leave some gifts for other tribes on the server as well as my own.

Will do.

Hey Snowcherub, it looks like it's working great on my test server. Could you send me your server info so I can see the bug you're having?
RedDwarf  [author] Dec 16, 2018 @ 3:36pm 
Interesting — I’ll check, thanks!

@RedDwarf It is the red wreath which I was using prior to the update with no issues. I have it on the stone fireplace and on a wood wall. I placed a new one on a new stone wall and there is still no visible inventory :)
