Aviary Structures by MythN7

Mod ID: 927199201
Please make sure to like, not just favorite.

I know the mod still has a few things missing and things to be touched up for textures and descriptions and what not.
But as for now, because of other things in my life, I have to close this project as complete.
If I update in the future it will be just to fix the obviously unfinished visual aspects.
No more custom features / snaps / code will be put in the mod if more updates come.

Thank you for your support.

Clean Stackable.

Mod Description:
COMING When mod is done!


Build the ultimate dino enclosure, with gated openings in the ceilings, floors, and walls. You can freely walk, fly or even swim in and out of the your base. This structure provides a secure enclosure for your dinos to be kept.
(There are a few issues still with dinos escaping if you leave them on wander while you go in and out of visual range of my structures.)
This enclosure supports dinos of all sizes and yes, even those that require a Behemoth sized entrance.
The entrances can be set to automatically open and or close for any approaching friendly players.

Take a look at the 9 min video that SMooreAce edited up from in game capture (found within the preview videos and images).
It shows most of features and how the crafting system works and how all the placement is most efficiently done for how to find the snaps.
Big thanks to SMooreAce for helping with this task.

List of specific features you can do with this mod.
-(Some other mods may have structures that snap to my structures that shouldn't, or not snap when they should.)
-(There are additional snaps that do not work with many vanilla structures that are left in because they work well with some mods.)

-My foundations snap to and from vanilla floors (foundations).
-Vanilla ceilings snap to my foundations.
-There is a cantilevered foundation that is specifically designed to extend far off the edge of cliff faces allowing my custom elevator to take you down or up long drops.
-Tall Walls now have 8 door slots, while the huge wall now has 1 front huge door slot with 5 tall door slots around the rest of its perimeter.
-Wall plugs are available if you don't want doors, allowing you to fill in the slots of the wall to pick an assortment of design options, more will be added over time.
-Huge gate is placeable directly on ground as well as snapping to the huge wall.
-Processing Area crafts all of my custom mats.
-You can process mats for all tiers, so some of the mats avail are not yet used in any crafting, so take caution for that.
-INI setting of health and damage class.
-Damage class of the structure is now displayed by the ui text where it shows structure name and owner.
-Flat ceiling and inner floor count as ground for building on freely as supported.
-Flat ceiling has a safety rail you toggle to prevent jumping off by accident, as well as when it's down you cannot run off unless you jump over it.
-Final planned out levels, and crafting costs and health values in place for the initial release.
-Elevator Plug and Solid plug for the holes in the floor and ceilings.
-Elevator Pillar that can snap to the elevator plug, and always be in sync no matter what you extend it to, tall wall, huge wall, dome, flat ceiling.
-Huge elevator platform, that comes with a 15 slot inventory and can support 10,000 weight. It's about the floor area of 3 of the biggest vanilla elevators, and travels almost twice as fast.
-Both my crafting stations have the allowed transfer items set to only the items that are needed in those machines, so the transfer all button works very well.
-The processing area also has the ability to convert materials over time while you are out of its visual range and even if you are logged out as long as the server you play in is still running.
-Iris snaps to the hole not the elevator plug, still needs fixing for looking right as attached.
-The inner floor can snap to the bottom of the dome not just the bottom of each wall.
-For finding all my engrams in the learning tab of the ui, I added the name Aviary to the end of all my items names, so you can search for my stuff without knowing the parts name.

Thank you for your patience and support.

I love this mod, will you ever be updating this?
I really want to use this one but it seems broken?
Archy Bunker May 17 @ 11:09am 
Broken as stated. Sadly.

@Cosmetic Glowsticks It was last updated in 2017, read the mod description, he said he will not be working on it anymore.

sounds good ima get it:D

WTF is with these stupid building requirements? I've never even seen these materials before. Either I'm a vanilla scrub or these materials don't exist anymore and the mod is completely useless without commands. I don't use commands so I'm unsubscribing. From one honest modded player, to another, don't even bother!

Loving this mod and I so have to watch the tutorial getting confused to have you use the HUGE version of it
OneSwagFox Feb 9 @ 2:17pm 
Is this mod able to be used as is?

MthyN7? I don't suppose there is any chance that you kept a backup of this mod when it was only just the aviary structure itself? Back before you added all the extra stuff to it.

If you did could you PRETTY PLEASE upload that as a stand alone mod? It's was only a building and would have no obvious compatibility problems. It was such a great and handy little structure to place at our bases. It really was at it's best as just an aviary. :lunar2020thinkingtiger:
