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.

@♤ACE♤Freeflier We just had the exact problem you described on our server. As soon as we place the crafting structures, any time anyone entered near our base they crashed and then it just crashed to desktop.
Oh dude, I used to use this back when it was just the aviary, and used it for my smaller land dinos, fliers, and my sharks...

It's a sad day when I come back past this mod and it's bloated and over-modded beyond what it's initial intention was.

Why? Why did you incorporate all this into it? It was awesome as it was. You should've made multiple mods rather than making a mod that has 'everything'.

how am i meant to get the materials needed to make workshop and avairy as needs cement rope and other stuff ??????

@Roachy Iv'e been saying that for 12 months it should have been 2 different mods. thats why i haven't used it for 11 months.

Sad but this Mod causes server crashes.

This was a great mod, then he went too big with it. Should have left it basic and made other parts as separate mods, especially now that steampipe screws up on mods over 1gb in size.

I understand your frustration, but if your problem is the same as ours was, it's as simple as ONLY bringing out the aviary structure workbench AS NEEDED (the processing area doesn't seem to cause problems) and putting it away when you're done crafting the pieces.

*** The structure workbench being placed in the world for extended periods seems to be what was causing the issue for us - we can still use the aviary and build the parts and such, we just put it away when we're done crafting structures. This appears to have fixed the problem for us, at least.

I hope the info is helpful to someone else who badly wants to keep the mod but has been having random crashes to desktop that they couldn't sort out otherwise.

This mod is broken, don't install.. will cause you to close to desktop.. removed mod from my server and fixed issue.
Other than the fact it breaks the server, good mod.

good work, bad update rule, we suffer about a bug that made us loose our best stuff and dinos because he dont want update if we dont rate positif his mod, but how we can do that if we are angry?
