Title: [1.1] Glass&Lights Last Update: [3/10/20] V1.1
Post by: jacob814 on August 06, 2015, 10:20:53 AM

<---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->

Glass&Lights:
A mod that adds an assortment of lights to the game as well as glass to go along with it.

Notes:
- To start using this mod once enabled, you should research the glass and lights. They do have a decent beauty factor so it isn't aesthetically pleasing just to the player, but the pawns as well.
- If you have questions, concerns, or even a suggestion, let me known down below.
- This mod is on the Steam Workshop (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=826153738). This forum post is for those who have decided not to migrate to steam for one reason or another. All latest releases will be on steam (small bug fixes/changes). I will only update the GitHub when a major update is finished or a bug I've missed is making it unplayable/annoying.

Since CCL demands a new save, there's no way to get the ceiling lights working with an existing save, right? :<

Hi!

I super <3 the glass stuff!

But... I already have *way* too many lights from all the various other mods.

Is there any chance of getting a nifty "glass only" mod?

Or--can anybody instruct me on how to gently lobotomize a mod?

Thanks in advance!

I love the visuals of this mod and really like using it!

However, after a bit of testing, I noticed that the beauty values were quite astronomical. For example, two windows had the same beauty value as a solid gold table! Luckily the XML files were easy enough to tweak, but I thought it might still be good to say something.

I'm going to test it out for balance, but given the time and effort required and the fact that most vanilla walls and lights don't seem to have beauty values, I'm setting the lights down to 2 on par with a carpet, and the windows and doors themselves a bit higher at 10 (down from 80 and 100), which makes them on par with basic furniture and such. I could be really off on the numbers, but it definitely seems better in my test game (a tiny wooden room with a dirt floor had a rating of "extremely beautiful" with just a ceiling lamp and a single window!)

Hope that info's helpful for future versions! Keep up the great work!

Post by: jacob814 on September 04, 2015, 08:55:24 AM
@SketchyGalore
I understand your concerns about the beauty value but they are in place for a reason. Other than looking nice, I am giving the player another reason to use them past light and another wall. These glass walls and lights take another resource the player has to gather and make. I do agree that the glass walls are a bit out of place and I will lower it in a future release. The ceiling lights though will probably stay at that beauty level for now. If you have another suggestion on another stat these lights and walls could use, let me know.

@Senacharim
If you mean separating the two mods for release. I wont do that but if you want to remove my lights for only the glass it would take some xml tweaking and deleting. I dont see why you just dont leave the lights alone and only use the glass. I will though take this into account and make it easier later on in a future release.

This mod has the glass walls and doors hidden behind research. (small amount but its there) So you wont be able to see them at the start of a colony, Also the ceiling lamps themselves are also behind research, to easily check to make sure the mod is working enable developer mod in the options, then click the little god mod button.... That will un-hide everything

Do you have CCL installed correctly?
Is my mod in the correct mods folder?
Is it initialized?
Are you using the right version of rimworld?
Are you using the right version of my mod?

If all three of those are yes then the mod should be useable. I don't have a very complicated mod that isn't something special. Make sure those presets are right. If nothing above works then try to find help in the rimworld help forums. This is not my mod doing this.

A little suggestion since it would go well with the glass material: a recipe for Molotov cocktails  8)

Gonna do this myself actually but it would depend on your mod (a unit of glass and a bit of steel e: and a bit of cloth I guess) so I wouldn't release it, but I think it would be cool for you to add this.

Post by: jacob814 on January 08, 2016, 07:51:45 PM
Very good idea. Going to add this idea now. Your code isn't the code to add the recipe but a recipe already in my pack. Anyway, I'll try to figure it out and add it in. If all goes to plan and update in the near future.

Quick question since I don't get statistics on who downloads my mod or any feedback if it is good or not, what do you think of this mod? Obviously, something good if your suggesting this. @Kaballah

Very good idea. Going to add this idea now. Your code isn't the code to add the recipe but a recipe already in my pack.

That is because I am somewhat retarded and pasted in the wrong thing, it's corrected now.  I think your mod is quite cool and works very well, I like all the alternate lighting (especially the wall light) and you don't go crazy with the scope of the mod, it just adds glass and lights.  I know there's at least a couple of other mods out there that include additional lights but I like the fact that you added a new material as well as research topics required, it's a nice well-rounded mod.

If you want an alternate free file host that will actually show you download count and have no irritating downside that I'm aware of you could try TinyUpload:

Post by: jacob814 on January 09, 2016, 08:26:32 AM
@Kaballah
I was able to make the code myself before you corrected the code you pasted here. It did take me a while because I couldn't for my life figure out how to call a Molotov in the XML file. Finally did though and your code confirmed that.

Thanks for the feedback as well. I do have plans for a few more mods that work together pretty well to make crafting a little bit more difficult with more parts.

Also, before you fixed your code I also updated the download link. Has the recipe added for the Molotov and changed the reinforced glassworks table to require normal glass in the making. To force the player to use normal glass at least once.

Okey doke!  It's a good mod, thanks for publishing it.

Oops, I do have one thing I think you should fix: the job bills to craft glass/reinforced glass cannot be set to "Do until you have X", and I don't think there's any reason they couldn't, I think you probably just inherited code from another workbench that disallows "Do until".

Then from the main menu (before a colony is loaded or started), look at your mod list, find the Glass+Lights listing, and look at its Info.  If the author is "anonymous" and there's no other description info, you've unpacked the mod incorrectly (a lot of people do this with various mods) and you probably need to just move the directory's contents up one level.

Use rocks to make glass. Go figure. Usually rocks are used to unmake glass. To bits and pieces.

This mod lacks a ModHelperDef which was always a soft requirement but is now a hard requirement to use certain features.  Specifically, using AdvancedResearchDefs requires a ModHelperDef to validate version level functionality.

I got so used to be able to build glass walls and glass doors that I completely forgot it wasn't part of vanilla. When I updated to alpha 13, I was searching the research list back and forth trying to find the glassworks. I put on development mode looking through all the buildings trying to find the glass ones. Forgot it was never part of vanilla.

This mod is essential stuff. Ty should nick your idea and put it in the game.

I have no clue what is causing this issue. I have downloaded the most recent CCl and it works fine with my mod. Could you make sure you are using the right CCL and Glass&Lights versions? I dont know what else it could be.

I have update Glass&Lights to 13a.3

Made the mod more integrated with Rimworld Alpha 13.

If I update does it require a fresh game?

-Updating the mod no. As long as you started you save with CCL installed, you can update this mod as you wish. CCL requres you to start your save with it for some reason or another.-

You should be able to add both CCL and my mod to your save game without problem. Seems I was wrong.

Can you shed some more light on this?  Is there an unknown (to the CCL team) issue with adding CCL to an existing colony?

I tried this (disabled all mods except Core of course, CCL and your mod) and I still got the same errors I listed above.  I've tried various things (rebooting, uninstalling Unity Web Player in case there was some sort of incorrect version overriding what is included with the game) and currently I'm re-downloaded and unpacking Rimworld after deleting all old versions, zipped or unzipped.

e: Ok I think I have found my problem, somehow my version of CCL that I thought I downloaded yesterday was a different version.  Downloaded CC_User_Release_v0.13.1.1.zip and will try again.

e: Yeah that's what it was, I have no idea how I ended up with a different version of CCL (it had no version number on it, it could have been anything :o )

It works with only artificial light sadly, if I want sunlight to work that would require some programming that I dont know too much about.

Frankly I think my mod, or at least parts of it should be part of the base game. They could integrate it to allow sunlight to pass through lights.

I'm having problems with the lights.  I can place the glass doors/windows, along with outdoor groundlamps (though they construct them, it uses materials, and they never appear, just wasted materials on groundlamps), but wall lamps and ceilling lamps will not place or allow me to construct, no matter which walls or inside any buildings i try to click.  Anyone else having issues or maybe I'm really just not doing something correct?

 - I have no clue how to re-create this in my own game. I am using latest CCL and the latest of my mod and am able to re-create what you are describing. If you could give me some sort of video or picture that would be great. Also the only thing I can think of is that you need to update CCL.

@qurffe @rsdworker @notfood Seems so, I talked to one of the CCL devs and they told me they wouldnt release it to the steam workshop because of the issues they had with the workshop? Im not sure but with this I will be uploading as soon as I figure it out :P

@drakulux Thankyou for the feedback, was wondering why that happened when I did a quick test the other day. Will be pushing a new version soon.

@123nick I won't be adding something to be compatible with cuproPanda's Core. If you want to do something like that yourself, it isn't that hard. Also, this is where you would ask someone to make a modpack for it. I don't care for cuproPanda's Core because it distracts from the vanilla experience. I am trying to make a mod that either enhances the vanilla experience or adds some things that don't stray too far from it. Maybe Cupro will do something if you ask him, but I wont.

Sorry.

yeah, its alright. i can make some recipes to switch this mods glass with cupro's glass, so people using both can have them be interchangable. also, this mod adds sand, right? i can do the same with sand.

Ohh... Was looking for some mod that adds lights to ceilings but it needs CCL :/ How sad...
It's kinda weird that people that come from glitterworld planets do not have the technology to use lights attached to the ceiling or walls...

Would I need to start a new game before I add this mod?

Also, do ceiling lights work? I read that you were waiting on CCL to be updated, but did you go ahead and find a way to make it work without it?

Everything works, ccl made it so you could only place my celing lights in a room with a roof. Without CCL you can place the "ceiling" lights anywhere. Also you dont need to restart you savegame, you should be able to add them without issue. Let me know otherwise.

Hi, I've posted this on steam but that info may be helpful and not everyone uses stem, so I'll paste it here, also:

Hi. I found out there's a glass table hidden in the mod... In the Buildings_glassFurniture.xml by changing line 41 to "<ThingDef ParentName="TableBase">" and line 47 to "<drawSize>(3,3)</drawSize>" I could spawn and construct it in godmode and had it appear in the architect tab under furniture. Didn't really test it after that and am no modder myself, so I may be unaware of a deeper reason to have it hidden.

Since the mod name don't change Rimworld don't notice it.
You should allways delete the old folder before you copy/unzip the new one, this is for all mod's not just this one.

BUT when you update a mod which add/change something there is allways a chance to break the colony. If you want be at the safe side, just rename/copy the old folder and when you encounter a problem you can restore it.

Ah so you can always redownload and reinstall an archived version if deleting a mod proved a problem. I'll be sure to do that with the newest version of glass/lights the OP just uploaded thanks.

For as far as my knowledge goes, you can delete the old mods folder and install the new one. I have not done anything that would damage your save file but as they said, make sure to do a backup first. By chance something does become corrupt, let me know as I have made a mistake. Thanks.

Yes and I can say that someday I will be able to do that but I need to know how to program in C# I believe. I am currently in school for coding and that will be one of the next coding language I will learn. Until then, I might learn some on my own time but like most humans, I am busy, and I am lazy.

Wait whats the point of the skylight if it doesn't let light in? Don't the windows in this mod also allow you to open windows or am I thinking of clutter- structures?

Oh woops! So sorry i had 7 different mod windows open at once and typed in the wrong one. I probably sent the wrong reply to another thread too xD Glad that you are adding sunlight to windows though. The clutter structures mod currently has its own version of it for regular sized windows so I'm sure either of them could provide tips if you need them.

IDK if this has already been brought up (I read through the posts, but might have missed it), but some of your items aren't properly updated. Four of them still say WorkToMake instead of WorkToBuild. Obviously, this isn't game breaking, and it's a two-second fix that even a newbie like me can do (so people should be abe to easily update it themselves) but I thought I should bring it up to you.
It's:
GlassDecoration
GlassFurniture
GlassProduction
GlassStructure

I fixed the workToMake to now be workToBuild. I was unable to find the workToMake in structure, though. Either way, it is "fixed". I wont be releasing a new version, just download the zip from GitHub if you want the update version.

In your Workgivers please add the line
Code: [Select]
    <prioritizeSustains>true</prioritizeSustains>This way if you assign a pawn to your workstations via prioritizing he stays there until aborted (or hunger/rest requirement becomes too great) similar to all other crafting stations in the game (stone cutting for example).

This annoyed me so much I searched your mod among 40 or so in my steam workshop folder (they only have numbers), figured out in which def this is and then compared your xml to the vanilla stone cutting one until I figured out why my colonists only ever make 1 glass and I have to babysit them like crazy (or lock them into the room).

Here one whole section:
Code: [Select]
  <WorkGiverDef>
    <defName>DoBillsMakeGlass</defName>
    <giverClass>WorkGiver_DoBill</giverClass>
    <workType>Crafting</workType>
    <priorityInType>100</priorityInType>
<fixedBillGiverDefs>
<li>GlassworkTable</li>
</fixedBillGiverDefs>
    <verb>produce glass from</verb>
    <gerund>producing glass at</gerund>
<requiredCapacities>
<li>Manipulation</li>
</requiredCapacities>
    <prioritizeSustains>true</prioritizeSustains>
  </WorkGiverDef>

P.S.: Should probably not add it for Molotovs. Though, vanilla has the line for machining table etc. too.

Thanks for including this line, it will make the lifes of people so much easier.

Some might prefer it the other way, but it isn't really about what people prefer, but what they expect. When I send someone stone cutting or tailoring I expect them to sit on that table until they die (or well, you know, get very hungry or sleepy).

Now it is in line with all the other crafting stations.

I doubt too many would like it the other way as they are so use to the vanilla production tables. Little consistencies like that really help.

Right. The windows replace the wall. If you click on the window structure (which is shown in your screenshot) you can choose what type of glass you want, and then place it on the wall tile you want it in. The wall tile is deconstructed and becomes the window.

Additionally the glassworks TV is under "Joy" objects

Oh i see.......Hm, i guess I better make the walls out of the material I have the most of if the glass will just end up replacing it.

I see glassworks tv under the joy section when on god mode but its not there when im not in god mode. Not sure why this is?

I thought jacob hadnt solved the lighting problem yet? As in, no light actually gets in through the windows? I remember reading he would get around to it when he had the time youre saying thats happened already?

If that is the case, how would light pour in to my glass building if its double walled and 3 of the 4 outer wall layers are granite? Would it stop light from entering the room? Im still interested in how light would work in this hypothetical scenario jacob, even if its not a possibility yet as it will impact the future construction of some of my buildings.

Probably should have said this, but Dr_ZHivago is correct. Light from artificial light sources pass through the window walls but sunlight does not due to how natural light is in the game.

Yes, allowing light to pass through is only with the glass walls, like in real life. The exception being natural light not working.

Think of real life, no matter the thickness of glass, light can pass through but what I was getting from you is if you put a solid wall in front of it does it still pass through light <-- No

Any thickness of this glass will allow light through if you have a powerful enough of a light.

Post by: Ruisuki on April 10, 2017, 09:01:40 PM
ah yeah makes sense the outer layer wouldnt allow light to pass through, hered the situation i was referencing, using a 5x5 perimeter as an example, though the open space would only be 1x1 inside it:

stonewall/stonewall/stonewall/stonewall/stonewall/
stonewall/glasswall/glasswall/glasswall/stonewall/
stonewall//glasswall/room/glasswall/stonewall/
stonewall//glasswall/glasswall/glasswall/stonewall/
stonewall/stonewall/stonewall/stonewall/stonewall/

So according to this the 1x1 would be dark af. I think ill only double wall the vertical sides and leave the sides glass only to still let some light in

In my opinion the tech requirements are too high for basic glass. Glassworks go back to classical times. Tribal starts could really use glass material to be available before industrial tech.

In addition, this mod has solved the problem of windows allowing in outdoor light: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=939878084 (http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=939878084)

Hey everyone, I took your feedback and ideas and I present the small but much-needed update: Medival Glassworks

-Adds a new glassworks worktable that runs off of fuel instead of electricity.
-Makes the glassworks research easier to research by lower tech level colonies.
-The normal glassworks worktable now also takes the electric smelting research to become unlocked.

-The issue with the version has now been fixed. Although not game breaking, a red line of text is never fun.

Ok i just see, you named the Medival glasswork as 17.2, then these title Medival glassworking is missunderstanding.
You should name it 17.2 and at the description, add the medival glassworking :-)

Oh my bad, I was going off your last comment in the thread. 18.2 is the latest version? No need to add the beta 18 update file?

the file below the top one on the githut link(below 18.2) the fact that its named update made me think it was just a patch thats no longer needed. I was getting a mention saying mine was out of date in the mod folder

Oh, that was me being lazy at naming the update. The github link will take you to the latest version.

This is because of a change the walls were rendered in A17. I will have to update the texture file to fix this but in the meantime, they have to be like this. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Was this issue ever resolved?

By the way, thanks for a great mod :)

The most recent addition added a Japanese translation and a fix for the glass texture.

hey jacob does your glass mod interact in any way with dubs skylights? He has glass panels for greenhouses

Although I did take a look at his mod, I decided against integration. I do however have integration with a mod called expanded roofing. Highly suggest checking it out.

I second this. Nothing against dubs work, and holy crap is it fantastic, but his Skylights mod has really been outdone. With Expanded Roofing, you can now build skylights, solar panels into the roofs, and also THICK ROOFS! This means you are essentially as protected as you would be if you dug into a mountain. No more drop pods crashing through into the middle of your base. I want to say this should protect against tornadoes, too, but I have not had the chance yet to check.

Hm that seems OP. With no threat of infestation, drop pods or, if it turns out, tornadoes the thick roof option seems a bit much for me. I do like the solar panel roofing idea though.

You do realize you can achieve all of this by having your base in a mountain, besides the infestation? One method you are forced to mine into the mountain then you have all of these protections, versus the other method requires you to research these technologies, and then have to spend extra resources constructing these thick stone roofs. Also, with the "no threat of infestation" some people actually don't like them, and I turn mine off. I've got 200+ events/incidents anyway, so I won't miss just one ;)

One more thing: if anyone uses RF - Smooth Stone Walls, you can prevent infestations this way when you tunnel into a mountain if you don't want to have to put up new additional walls.

Thats what im saying theres no threat there. Plus you get solar panels on roof so Im probably gonna pass on that one for now.

hey everyone,

I downloaded the glass and lights mod today from github and installed it into the mods folder. Upon launch of the game, I got the error message that the mod version and my game version are incompatible but I have the most recent release of the game 18.1722 and the mod says it has been updated for 18.1.

I have uninstalled the mod and then reinstalled 3 times. I even played around with the mod order to no avail.

So I am at a loss.

Any help?

It is because the modauthor didn't follow the filestructure for mod-archives.
Open the Glass&Lights folder, and inside you find another Glass&Lights folder, move this one at the mods.

I absolutely adored this mod in B18 (but i fiddled with it, so it used Rainbeau's Fertile Fields "sand" instead of rocks, you can crush rocks into sand in that mod, but also extract it from several terraforming jobs), so i loved making huge glass greenhouses in the desert (yes glass walls and also "expanded roof" transparent roof (also edited to use "glass" in addition to steel)

What can i say, having no glass manufacturing has made my B19 base so dumb and ugly...

it's like... what's the point in having huge neutroamine flower plantation (VG) when the walls of made of rock ??!?! :-\ can't look at that ugly stuff !!!    :o


...plus trying to run the b18 version in b19 breaks the game in the funniest way, pawns can no longer have joy... at all... that's how i feel too   :'(

Would be very grateful for a non-steam B19 working link

Little late to the party but I haven't forgotten the forum. There is an update coming out soon that changes the look of the mod slightly. I've also completely redone the wall lamps, making them part of the wall and much nicer. Oh, and ceiling lights will be placeable over things now.

[email protected], unless you want to create the textures and make all the required code, no I don't have plans for that kind of thing. Sorry.

[email protected] I see your on here as well, I figure you've already gotten this sorted out.

[email protected] Most of those ideas, while good, take more time than I would like to implement. If you would like to create art assets for those things and I like them, I will probably take the time to implement them. As for removing the component requirement, I can do that before the next update.

@pixelBitZombie, I might have forgotten to update github last night. Im not sure where I went wrong as I did open the desktop app and was reading off changes but I never clicked submit to master, which I need to do to give you a release.

It will be updated as soon as I get home from work. Sorry about that.
