Description
Builder's Improvements
ModID=854186603
This mod does NOT implement new structures.
The mod adds snap points and changes some restrictions of vanilla structures.
Just subscribe the mod, install it and it will work out of the box.

0.9A
feeding trough: snap points
trophy base: snap points
catwalks snap on ramps to build stairs
crop plots and fence foundations are easier to place unsnapped because of a smaller snap range, but they still snap
minor bugfixes

GameUserSettings.ini:
[BuildersImprovements] NumberOfStructures=2 default: 2 (up to 16) PreventFreeFloors=1 default: remove the entry

@BLUE put the following line and the end of the GameUserSettings.ini of the Server (please use the ArkWiki for instructions). for example:

[BuildersImprovements]
NumberOfStructures=16
PreventFreeFloors=1

I would like to ask the author to use it on the server, can I just input this directly?
[BuildersImprovements]
NumberOfStructures=2 default: 2 (up to 16)
PreventFreeFloors=1 default: remove the entry

@Jarrod yes, but i do not have time to mod. sorry, please be patient.

@Grebog, will you be updating your mod to be compatible with all the new stuff? Such as Tek Crop plot?
loopuleasa Jul 7 @ 10:33pm 
is this compatible with S+?

or does S+ offer similar mechanics

this mod is excellent btw, been playing with it past 100 hours
loopuleasa Jul 7 @ 10:32pm 
compared to S+, what are the diffs to this mod?

I am thinking which one to use

@Grebog I actually had a question for you about your building mods and if something I wanted to try was even possible in the devkit. Do you think you would have a couple minutes to talk about it over steam?

@Stroichik i did not implement such "feature". Perhaps it is a new Ark bug? Or another mod?
Stroichik Jun 8 @ 9:50am 
plants regrow through my thatch foundations with this mod. I`m not sure if its game bug, or its this mod allows to resource to respawn so close to player structures.
