Just a thread where I will regroup my smaller mods in order to not flood the forum all over. Just pure XML tiny mods *. (no CCL, no C# for better interoperability and quick update between alphas  ;) )

* unless otherwise stated




Craftable Molotov Cocktails

(https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kaptain-kavern/CraftableMolotovCocktails/master/About/Preview.png)


Just craftable molotov Cocktails, nothing less, nothing more.
They cost 50 chemfuel units, 50 Cloth units and 50 Beer to produce (at the Crafting Spot or Refinery)
Crafting them requires the research project "Refining" to be finished. And a minimum crafting skills of 3.

Corrected Workgivers

- Re-introduce the old "Repair" work type, so now Construction and Repair are two different skills in the work-planner.

(http://i.imgur.com/KQCqT1o.jpg?2)



- Moves harvesting work type into the plant cutting category so you can now prioritize harvesting over sowing. As a counterbalance, trees can "harvest fail".
(http://i.imgur.com/isfSEUG.png?2)


- Also contain a XML patches that makes "Stone Cutting" depending on the "Construction skill". Because "Stone Cutting" is giving XP in this skill.

Thanks to XeoNovaDan, it was while reading the code of "Plant Cutting is for Growers!" that I thought about that.

Thanks to (☞゚ヮ゚)☞ Mehni who provide the code for the planting/harvesting tweak

Documentation Used
This mod came from this request on Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/RimWorld/comments/4ujca6/colorblind_mode_the_histroy_is_almost_un_usable/).

I used information find on this site: Color Universal Design (CUD) - How to make figures and presentations that are friendly to Colorblind people (http://jfly.iam.u-tokyo.ac.jp/color/)

(especially this chart)
(http://jfly.iam.u-tokyo.ac.jp/color/image/pallete.jpg)

Commentary
I would like to say that I'm glad I saw AxlColeButler (https://www.reddit.com/user/AxlColeButler) suggestion because as a web-developer I will now apply all that I have learned and try to use a barrier-free color pallet. And as human being, it's always rewarding to help somebody ;)

I might have to make a chinchilla "wool" mod now for mittens.

edit: maybe you should mention it takes a month and has a value of 4, and put up some number of other wools to compare?

As I just made it, release only start from A15, sorry.
But If you're lucky enough (and there was no changes to shields code during last update), it may be as simple as opening the about.xml file (in the About folder of the mod) with any text editor (even windows notepad) and change <targetVersion> to 0.14.0

Can you tweak price of the thrumbo wool? It's pretty low for a resource with such stats. It's 7 times cheaper than thrumbofur, if I'm not mistaken.

Sadly I don't know how to do that by myself. This would require C# knowledge. Skullywag must be working on CCL too hard (or needing it updated) to update MKII. I'm afraid you have to wait for him. The good news is CCL should be done by the end of the month ;-)

Thanks for the feedback.
So I checked in what I had set for values but in fact it's never specified plainly in the mod's code. What I mean is that the game compute the price "itself" automatically with other values I haven't touch.
For the Thrumbo wool I just copy/pasted Megatherium's definitions. So they should have the same price value. I have to investigate.

Edit : In fact I was lacking a bit of code (must been added recently in vanilla or I just fail) about "commonality". I'm pretty sure it will impact market price. So thx again and I will make an update today ;)
Edit 2 : in fact you can easily correct this by adding <commonality>0.1</commonality> in \Defs\ThingDefs_Items\thrumbowool.xml just under <stuffProps> (line 37), it's just that I prefer to test my mods before releasing them ^^

Indeed, I can, but I suck at modding pretty much, 'cause I somehow fail even in changing values. Still can't understand why my new bionic arm doesn't show up in the game.

It's because each and every one of those came from a requests ;P made by players. I try to read suggestions and when I see something I can do quickly enough I made it my "for the community" project of the day.

Most of the other bigger mods I'm working on solo are updates of older "lost between alphas" mods. Or bigger projects with other modders, it's cool as well but I like to read "player-only" suggestions because that's where I find the most straightforward ideas.

So hey I'm glad you (and others) liked them because they were all made for you all ;P

That's awesome of you kaptain to do that for us plebs but how about a challenge for you?

 Can you add a taser mod?

There was one once for an older build but I can't remember which one. But I loved having tasers to subdue 'highly desirable' raiders.

Thank you for the feedback, Fregrant.

You are totally right, the chem-fuel seems more suited for crafting Molotov (When I created the mod it wasn't existing in game). I may keep only one beer bottle in the recipe, after all you still need one bottle to contain the cocktail
I have taken note (https://github.com/kaptain-kavern/CraftableMolotovCocktails/issues). I will do an update soon.

Thanks again

UPDATE

Craftable Molotov Cocktails and Thrumbo Wool are now using the new PatchOperation method introduced in A17.
___________________________________

- Ok Kap ... But what does that mean?
- Well ... simply put it "just" means that, now, those mods are also compatible with other mods that are modifying the same "game object". When all modders will use this method, mods will be nearly all compatible.
___________________________________
Also this was my first try at the new method and, as a modder, I can tell you it's promising, modders can now doing things that were requiring C# knowledge (which I lack  ::) )

I wanna thank SihvMan for pointing me to some infos about that. And also thanks to Zorba and Zhentar for explaining to us. Here (https://gist.github.com/Zhentar/4a1b71cea45b9337f70b30a21d868782) and There (https://gist.github.com/zorbathut/99a3858fafd2dc9bea8f685ed6b35556)

I was just about to install this, until I saw you'd added harvesting to plant cutting. That'll conflict with my Pawns Are Capable mod as my snob gardeners won't want to harvest anything anymore. Lol

Hi Rimrue,
You can have a look at the Patches.xml, I have commented all the patch (one by one), you want to remove the two last ones (from line 38 to 51 include).

I'm pretty sure you'll manage, but in any case, tell me and I can make the edit for you.

Edit : I'm silly, you can find links to the old versions in the release tab on Github (https://github.com/kaptain-kavern/Corrected-Workgivers/releases)

I will soon-ish release a mod called "Vanilla Animal Overhaul"  8)

I have planned to release several updates adding more features each time.


First release - aka Konrad Lorenz edition - will contain :

- more pack animals for you and factions (bears, elephant, rhino, alpacas for now)
(http://i.imgur.com/mKCYXTQ.png) (http://i.imgur.com/8SB7x9P.png) (http://i.imgur.com/QaneOGK.png) (http://i.imgur.com/DkJRhu3.png)
(http://i.imgur.com/IJCg0cM.png) (http://i.imgur.com/ezJB63O.png) (http://i.imgur.com/d5DErkY.png) (http://i.imgur.com/cTopxoK.png)

- modified workgivers so now animals will follow their master for way more activities when ask to follow master for fieldworks

(http://i.imgur.com/9NnR82r.jpg)
On this picture you can see that Panache (the dog) is escorting his master while he harvests plant

- Lots of animals are now set to be herd animals. Meaning they should behave more as a group, especially when you will hunt them  ::)



Second edition will introduce more changes to animals themselves like more "milkable" and "shearable" animals, more "butcherable" custom parts (as in my Tropical Mod), adding unfertilized eggs for all egg-layers (in vanilla only the chicken lay unfertilized eggs) and making elephant eats trees  ;D


I have good hope of releasing the first edition tomorrow. I really want to make more animals predators first ;-)

I'm sorry if my question might seem rude. I like your mods and I see your interest in animals here. The point is that I have some ideas about more deep overhaul of their behavior that I thought could be interesting to you. But most probably it requires some C# usage and I also don't know it :)

Kaptain! I'm not sure if this is intended behaviour or not (regarding Corrected Workgivers) but my colonists will always prefer stonecutting to doing practically anything else (probably because it falls under the constructing category and that work is very prioritized). I've tried using blerkz's "Skilled Stonecutting" but it doesn't seem to be working quite as I expected: pawns do in fact gain crafting exp, but that's about it, it won't get recognized as a crafting bill (and not a construction one, like in A17).

Is there any way to fix this?

Thanks once again for your amazing mods and updates!

Hi there, first sorry to make you wait for the reply  :-X

I haven't tried nor thinked about interaction with other similar mods (in fact there wasn't IIRC back then). What you want is having my mod actionplus gaining xp while stonecutting, right?

Maybe try with my mods AFTER the other one in mod order... If that doesn't work, I'll look at how to show you how to "mod my mod" for doing that, no problems  ;)





Movable Sandbags mod just have been updated!

Minor update that make the patch better and quicker to load + adding ModCheck feature to auto-detect incompatible mods

Excellent! No worries about the delay, I know you're very much active with other mod updates and such.

What I acually want is for the pawns to gain Crafting XP while stonecutting (which they already do) and to get stonecutting to be part of the "Crafting" category instead of the "Cosntruction" category, just like before A17.

Thanks for the reply!
