YES! Its true! After dozens of angry Rimworld fans have emailed me expressing their concerns over the fact my mod pack went dead and seeing loads of comments all over the forum with people moaning that other mod packs were not the BIG BANG I have decided to get back in the game.... but im hoping to use IRIM instead of better power this time round If the developer gets it finished in time :D

I've downloaded the pack and i think i've found an issue: Wood economy doesn't show up in the activation list for mods for me.
Title: Re: The BIG Bang Alpha 3 modpack

Same here. no Wood Economy in the mod listing of my game.

The WE and BP patch is Wood Economy if you activate all the mods and load a new map you will see all the wood economy stuff is there! ;)

What mod changes metal doors into 'powered doors', and thus makes them cost 75 metal? I want to know which one i should disable.

The core does that, That's part of the Alpha 3 update, not a mod. So you could disable core, but then your game wouldn't work. :P

Okay, so I installed this mod and activated them all from the mods button area in the Alpha 3 game.

Now when I start up Alpha 3 I am presented with a massively long list of problems (I assume they are problems) in the upper left corner of my screen (too many to capture them all in a screenshot).  Have I simply skipped a step by just adding all the mods to the mods folder?  Was there something else I was supposed to do besides put all the folders into the mods folder and then activate them in the game?

This is the only mod that I've added to my game ever for Rimworld.  The only other mod folders inside of the games mod folder are those that came with the download of Alpha 3 (just to be clear, this is a legitimate copy of the game and when I say the download of Alpha 3, I'm talking about from the official source that sends me an email when ever there is a new update to the game to allow me to go download it up to 5 times).

Thanks

Have you found any in game issues?? i know there are alot off XML/cross referencing error messages but i have tried putting every item,building ect and issued orders for every job and watched to make sure they get done, and we found no issues, BASICALLY when you play the game everything will work fine, regardless the error messages. I think its because alot of the mods are still Alpha 2 compatible and its magical they still work :p

Post by: Haplo on April 10, 2014, 04:36:03 PM
I've tried it and found the problem mods.
There are four of them right now who throw all those errors:
Animal Rugs, Clutter, Syntmeat and Workplaces.

I have a newer version of Workplaces released, so you can update that. The other three, you have to disable them until the modders updated them to an alpha 3 version.

Frankly I'm surprised BetterPower+ isn't one of them at the moment... It's such a mess right now you wouldn't believe, I've got files across all three of my screens and about three windows on each screen too. Really hope to have it more presentable and fully operational by midnight.

you dont need to disable them, they work fine when playing, in fact my guys are making synthmeat right now just hit the ` key to turn the console screen off and enjoy ;) i will update them when possible.

It runs, some of the features aren't quite working properly though, which is why I'm working to fix it all up now. What I sent you was the version with all the crashing issues simply removed, not fixed.

sweet, well i believe alot of people are experiencing issue with mod compatibility atm but everyone seems to be working hard to get them fixed. this pack will be 100% soon (with a full version of betterpower+) im hoping, really depends how fast the mod issues get fixed ;), but tbh i have a really cool colony now using this pack with conveyor belts carrying all my crops and meat into the kitchen and im making a fortune from selling crates off human bodies to cannibal trades ha, BUT i can confirm that me and 2 friends have put many hours into playing this pack and ignoring the error messages seems to work for us :D like i said though im trying to get the error messages sorted ASAP.

I have a problem with the mods. for the wood economy. i tell my people to cut trees but it gives me no wood!
Once the trees reach ~80% growth, they will drop wood. It's best to wait for them to be at 100% though, so you get the full amount of wood possible. Selecting the tree will show you it's current stage of growth down by the Architect Menu. Example: http://i.imgur.com/HwXxqNS.png

An unofficial test version of Wood Economy is being used in this pack. It has known issues and should not have been included in this pack.
Please download the official release version of Wood Economy here: [MOD] (Alpha 3) Wood Economy (v.0.94) (http://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=2162.0) and replace the one from this pack with that one. Also download the BetterPower+ Compatibility Mini-mod and follow the directions for installing that.

This pack is also using the old version of Animal Rugs which is incompatible with Alpha 3. Please download the updated version here: [MOD] (Alpha 3) Animal Rugs v1.0 (http://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=2569.0) and replace the one from this pack with that one.

Will do today, but i had to use what i could to get a playable version out before A3 the reason i did not use the up to date version is because they have only just been released.

Has anybody had any issues with loading a saved game that is using this mod pack?

I've not used mods in Rimworld before so this is my first time doing so.  I only installed this mod pack.  When I go to load the saved game the debug window pops up (after loading the game) and literally starts to stream red error messages one right after the other without stopping for as long as I have the game open.

The other problem that I experienced is that the menu system (architect) is missing unless I press the ESC key when it shows back up but is unusuable.

The strange thing is that I was able to play the game just fine with this mod pack installed when I first started my game and I played for about 3 or 4 hours.  Then saved the game and tried to load it up about 6 hours later when now all it does is give me problems.

As said, I'm not using any other mods only this mod pack with the exception of the two mods that jamieg listed above a couple post.

Anybody else have any issues with their game using this mod pack after playing it for 3 or more hours and then trying to load up the save of that same game?

Did you download Alpha3b version?
It was a silent update.  If you don't have it, download it again and you should have it. I was having the same problem and Tyn solved it.

Post by: City Builder on April 11, 2014, 08:31:51 PM
Thanks for that info.  I did not know that he updated to 3b so I downloaded it again and now it seems to be working okay again, at least it loaded up the same save file that was causing issues that I wrote about.

Much appreciation for the info.

I looked at medical bed but the only thing i didnt like is that you have to use them instead of normal beds, if there was a way that you can set injured colonist to prioritize being put into the beds i defo would :D

Thank you for that feedback. I'm putting out a fix for a bug with my conveyor belts soon, so I'll put out a fix for being bombed by asteroids with it. Should be save compatible too assuming that you are running V2.3.0?

how comes?? you can replace better power with industrialrim?? what is the point in me putting a whole new pack just to switch 1 mod over, if you have industrialrim just switch better power off and that on.... i spoke to Callum about creating a mod pack for his mod, but there is not much i can do with the small amount of mods there are atm, hen there is 3-4 times the amount i can create packs that solely focus on certain areas :D

Thats me again, sorry, fixed it now :/ Rest assured that now I've got the last of the bugs mopped up, I will not be putting out a new release until it has been very thoroughly tested by people other than me, because apparently I am blind :P

Correct Mod found... should have tried looking within the graphics. There is an "EnginePart" which looks exactly like the debries... but the IncidentDefs of it give nothing away I could work with ^^

You can deconstruct it before it goes critical? 2.4.0 is gonna add some more to the mysterious object, I just didn't get time to do it for the alpha 3 release.

Good to see the lights fixed so quickly.   :D

Now my next question, not a bug, is about the event where an asteroid crashes and opens a stream vent on the planet: How do I turn this off?  It was really cool at first, as more geothermal is always welcome, but then they started hitting inside my base and filling the interior with steam vents, too.  This was not a good thing.

May I ask what storyteller you use? I have had a few reports of huge numbers of this and other events taking place constantly, yet I have yet to find the issue myself. As of yet I have only done long game testing of up to 80 days natural game play with Cassandra classic, and the event only took place the once. I am wondering if it has something to do with how the story tellers perceive the colony's progression, in which case I do need to do some urgent balancing.

But yeah, any information you can provide me with including how many times this has happened, how long your save is, what story teller, and anything else you may think is relevant would be much appreciated. Believe me when I say any issue you have with my mod is an issue I have with it too, and I like to deal with issues quickly and neatly :P

Title: Re: The BIG Bang Alpha 3 modpack~TMPT~
Post by: NephilimNexus on April 15, 2014, 06:38:30 PM
One hits about once a week, roughly.  About one in ten lands inside my base, but that's on a small map.  On a max size map I've yet to have one land inside my base, but that I suspect is just the laws of probability being slanted in my favor by the map's size.

Wouldn't be an issue except that you can't pave over steam vents.  If you could I would just do that and ignore the occasional internal strike as a "cost of living" expense and not worry about it.

Another issue, possibly a bug but not sure, with BetterPower+ (I assume): I've done the entire research tree entirely and only the only new generator that came up was the basic wind turbine... which I cannot get to work no matter where or what facing I place it.  I remember the original BetterPower had large wind turbines as well as at least two other generator types, yet none of these appear now.  Should I switch back to the original BetterPower mod?
Title: Re: The BIG Bang Alpha 3 modpack~TMPT~
Post by: jamieg on April 15, 2014, 06:52:40 PM
no dont switch back, you would have to switch your rimworld version back too? Im sure Architect will have a look at it, he has just been busy with his work recently ;) ill take a look and make sure its not the pack too :)
Title: Re: The BIG Bang Alpha 3 modpack~TMPT~
Post by: Architect on April 15, 2014, 07:29:05 PM
BetterPower for alpha 2 was made up of a hack job from the geothermal generator, so i redid it all from scratch in proper code for alpha 3. You should have found the lightning rod, coal plant, nuclear control, and wind turbines from your research? If not that is an issue with the modpack, as it works fine as of the standalone mod.

As for getting the turbines to work, they need a space two in front of them, and two behind them to work, as wind needs to blow through them :P However, they also cannot have roofs over them either, an there is a bug where any buildable thing including power conduits count as filling up space in front and behind. Items, pawns, and debris do not. I'll certainly see what I can do about how often the events take place for you, and try to get a better balance working.

Can I suggest an Air Deference building to counter the asteroids event.

It would have to be researched and take a moderate amount of power, but when it is active and asteroids that come down, instead of creating steam vents would be shot down by a laser and explode overhead, maybe setting things on fire and raining down some metal / platinum.

This lets you choose if you want more vents to run the risk of impacts in your base or pay a power tax to get an amount of metal instead.

Explain that only asteroids are shot down because everything else (drop pods / unknown objects) is too fast / small.

Not a bad idea at all actually :D However can I ask that further BetterPower+ specific stuff gets raised on my post or messaged to me? I don't really want to clutter Jamieg's post, there are plenty of other awesome mods in this modpack too :P

No way to deconstruct it... at least on my end. I tried it with all commands and nothing is marked.
Due to all the silent updates and redownloading it at sendowl, my download-counter for Rimworld gets kinda low by now, not replenishing, so I stopped with v410 for now while using the actual BB-compilation

The world was started new for v410 and ... now I know why there were so many lightnings

One thing that perplexes me is the laser drill.  Does it actually do anything besides suck up a lot of power?  I was under the impression that it would (eventually?) open up a new steam vent at the location of my own choosing, thus allowing more geothermal plants afterward... but so far it's been humming along for several days now and hasn't done actually anything.

It takes 200 in game Rareticks before it does anything, but trust me it does work :P If there is no power during the TickRare that it functions, that Raretick doesnt count. FYI, there is 250 ticks in a Rare tick.

Ok so when it's done how will I know?  Is there a message, a graphic, a sound?  Will the vent be under it or next to it?  Do I have to take it down when it's down or build a generator over it?

I really am not sure how this can happen but ever since the unidentified object exploded out on day 117, thunderstorm keeps happening for 7 days in a row and I have out of food to keep my colony up and running. The exploded object just keeps flashing badly so that my PC lags a lot even it is i7 8GB 560ti. Any idea for me? Thanks!

Found out solution by myself. Updated BetterPower+ mod but it was still doing it. I looked up some error message again before the object exploded then it was telling about a thing named EnginePart3824513 so I deleted that thing from my save file :D and that solved out the issue.

Any BetterPower related issues please put on my main thread as other people may be having them too, and it makes it a lot easier for me to see all the issues in one place.

If the save was generated using anything pre-3f then it will be incompatible as 3f breaks older saves.

Save with mods - update mod (may cause issue if the item object is precent.)
Save with mods - update game version (may cause issues)
Save with out mods - add mods (work fine)
Save with mods - remove mods (may cause issues.)
Save with out mods - update gameversion  (may cause issues.)

Okay, I got the savegames to load.  It just seems to take forever to do so.

My main issues right now are the Fertlizer Pump, which doesn't work, and the "fix" for it by Machine doesn't work, either.

Also, the conveyor belts don't seem to work properly, either.  One of my pawns placed some Wood Mulch on the belt, and the first batch moved long just fine, but when the second batch came along, the entire thing broke.  I'm having to deconstruct, then reconstruct the Belt Feeder just to get it to start up again.

I've been trying to streamline the production of Wood Economy and Cannibal items, but so far, due to belts not working, I've been manually designating stockpile priorities to goad my pawns into moving stuff between workshops and sales stockpiles.

Can you be a little more specific as to how the belts aren't working? If you're having an issue than others may be having the same issue. What exactly are you doing which is causing them to behave in a way you wouldn't expect?

I'm just trying to move Planks and Mulch from the workshops to the stockpiles around the Orbital Beacon.  The pawn sticks the Mulch into the Belt Feed, and it goes along just fine.  The second batch of Mulch either doesn't go anywhere or goes too fast and hits knocks the first batch off of the belt, and subsequent batches don't go anywhere and just pile up on the Belt Feed.  Eventually, the Belt Feed gets full, and the pawn just takes his handful of Mulch or Planks and walks it over to the stockpile.

It makes the conveyor belts totally useless.

Me and Evul are keeping the whole thing secret until release. Mainly because we've still got tons, of tons to work on. Project Sky is completely independant and does not require "Core" to be activated for it to work. Sorry mate :)

An FYI for those making mods that replace the Core mod:
There is a bug where entering the Mod Menu after restarting the game may reactivate the Core mod. Just untick it before you leave the Mod Menu and you won't have any problems.

Thanks mate, however it has been madr very clear industrial rim will not be the mod pack, they recommend deleting better power + and then move my mod into there instead.

However I do have an upcoming mod pack which will have it in. So when that comes out just get that instead,  just waiting on the final permission.

My modpack did similar, I have moved all the lights from the furniture to the structure. Now every tab (Apart from Orders and security) has 4 complete lines, Furniture having 4 lines and a half.

I noticed that there are two mods "conflicting" or unbalanced in this modpack.

1-Blacksmith (Workplaces):
Converts 1 debrislag to 3 metal bars
Each metal bar = ~9,5 metal | 2 metal bars = 19 metal | 3 metal bars = 28,5 metal
Converts 15 metal to 1 metal bar | 15 - 9,5 = 5,5 metal loss

2-Electro Slag (Electro Slag Remelting):
Converts 1 debrislag to 10 metal
______________________________________
28,5 (blacksmith) - 10 (electro) = 18,5 metal loss
Blacksmith converts 1 slag to 28,5 metal
Electroslag converts 1 slag to 10 metal
Blacksmith converts almost 3x more metal. Also, it gives more xp too.

Post by: Haplo on April 25, 2014, 02:23:47 PM
And I thank you for providing my Workplaces a home to live ;)
I've made the definitions of what comes out of the metal bars based on the costs of the weapons.
The Slag Debries to Metal Bars was a guess on my side, but It could be wrong.
The easiest sollution is to change in workplaces the amount of metal bars produced from slag debris from 3 to 2 or even 1.
You can find the definition in the file "..\RecipeDefs\Recipe_Blacksmith_Base.xml" Row 25:
Code: [Select]
<products>
<li>
<thingDef>MetalBars</thingDef>
<count>3</count>
</li>
</products>
It should be open to discussion what should be changed, but this is the easiest way to change from my side..

3 metal bars are balanced.
Electroslag consumes more power and has a greater cost, so it will be more balanced if this produce 4 metal bars.
Metalsmith is a manual process, don't need to be powered, they doesn't needed electricity in the medieval era and don't need today too. (To balance - increase work time).

I hope so... are you not getting Error msg pop up when its happening, ive encountered bugs similar to what you spoke about a few time, either conveyor belt issue which to my knowledge where fixed before this version of the big bang (basically items stacking up funny causing lag... It could be 2 colonists trying to eat the same food (if this occurs switch all colonist to soldier mode and then back to colonist mode to fix) or maybe 2 dead bodies(or possibly 2 different items or guns) accidently stacked on top of each other.... my only suggestions to why this is caused, if it is wrongly stacked items just haul them away from each other and as soon as they are removed the game fps will instantly pick up, for some reason i cannot load your save properly to try these myself :(

I let it run for about 30 minutes. I think it has something to do with the power. I would have a connected rate of 6000 from a nuke plant, then it would switch to like -345234525 instantly.

I didn't meant your current build, as I know that you worked something out there. I think he is trying to get the older built to run, as he doesn't want to loose his savegame. It just was a suggestion for him to try to repair his older game, not a slight on your work :)

Oh right, my mistake XD yeah, the issue with the older build is actually hard coded, so the only fix I can suggest there is to simply not use the wall lights I'm afraid :/

I would definitely consider it :D I'm SOOO happy to have a modder approach me and ask rather than it be the other way around :p I'll have a look into it and if it works fine and doesn't conflict or unbalance the game i will for sure! gimme a couple of days as i like to have a good play to ensure no ovious bugs :)

AND BLITZ, hurry! lol ;)

It produces a massive amount of power, which makes it seem unbalanced until you realize that it also decays and if it decays too far it explodes in a giant fire ball that will redecorate your base in quite an interesting manner (if you enjoy fire and debris). It also pumps out hard radiation which will hurt your colonists badly (and demoralize the hell out of them.) if they enter the same room as an active reactor.

Basically it is your one stop power solution if you're willing to keep an eye on it. If not, if you get distracted and forget about it, it will happily ruin your day in one of several humorous ways.

And as always, do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.

I'll also offer up my cremation chamber. It's a fast and easy way to dispose of unwanted corpses that makes sense in game.

My main objective in game is it fits the "feel" of the game visually and functionally without overcomplicating things.

What's better yielding, electro slag smelting, or processing the slag in the smith workshop?

Also, seems not all weapons work with the break down weapon bill?  Selling isn't bad, it's just that I have guns on the ground everywhere while playing on the hardest difficulty.

My best advice for any questions regarding the mod pack is to contact the mod creator to the mod which the question relates too.

I really appreciate your efforts in putting it all together and the author's efforts creating these great mods.  I noticed a small balancing issue when using two of my favorite mods in conjunction: BetterPower+ and Power Switch.

You can create a funnel entering areas you don't want raiders going (like your base in general).  It doesn't need to be large... maybe 3 squares of one wide corridor.  Lay down a few charged wire (from BP+) in the corridor on a switch (from PS).  When raiders attack, you just turn on the charged wire.  They die by the job lot.  If a few make it through, they have 10 or 20 health and can be one-shotted by your colonists (or a turret).  When they are done, turn it off and the area is safe for your colonists to clean up. The only problem is cleaning out the 50 or 100 corpses that pile up in the death corridor.

It seems like too effective a strategy for such a small investment in resources.  I am not sure what the right balancing solution is.  Maybe just don't use it.  Or, once artillery is implemented, it will be much less effective.  They are still great mods overall that I would suggest anyone check out.

I have a question about the advanced comms console and I don't know to which mod it belongs: Is this thing actually usefull? The only difference to the original comms console I could figure out is that it can't recognize traders which makes it kind of useless in my opinion.

The number is actually totally random.  It's no less than 10 days, and the most it's ever taken for one of mine is 89 days.  I suspect that it can potentially take more.  If you're lucky, it'll take less than 20 days, but there's no guarantee.

I changed the Steam Geyser's category to Building, which solved both the too many Steam Geysers problem and the Laser Drill being useless at the same time.  I can now construct or blow up Steam Geysers at will.

It takes 14 consecutive days, assuming that you always keep it powered on for all 14 days in a row without a single power outage.  If a Solar Flare event happens, then the count starts over.  It can take a practically indefinite amount of time due to the requirement that the building be powered non-stop.

What you programmed the mod to do and what it does are two completely different things.

It's too bad that something like that tends to be somewhat complex to do.  Setting up a construction-like system that saves the point at which a timer stops is a pain to set up and get working correctly.  The only real remedy is to decrease the timer amount, even if it doesn't fix the underlying issue.

Nah not at all, I have it so it is simply an integer that gets ticked down one every TickRare. I'll just use Tynan's saving system to save the integer and load it again when need be. It's not actually a hard one to fix at all, I just don't have the time to do it right now what with my exams, my own game, my jobs, and my social life XD

Rather than find something to nitpick at, perhaps it would be nicer (and easier) to let perceived slights slide and assume that he didn't mean any offense to anyone.

I hate modding for this game. I spend so much of my time trying to make the XML stuff work, and the constraints of having to mod things rather than just building them from scratch infuriates me. Also, I lost all of the source code for BP+, and frankly now I can make a far better mod if I wanted to. Who knows, maybe some time in the future I will, however for now there are other mods coming to take different components of BP+ over, and they will likely do a far better job of it.

But essentially I just really hate XML :P

Solution: Make everything in C# (or die trying; like me) ;D

Hmm, if you let it die.. Is it ok, if I take (parts of?) your windturbine code and integrate it maybe in the .dll example?
It would be a really nice companion alongside the dark matter generator :)
I'm not 100% sure yet, but maybe it would be a nice addition to it.

Thanks Architect for all your work.

Can you please specify your licensing for if we want to use parts of BetterPower+. For example do we have to ask you specifically for each part or can you give blanket permission to use it with credit?

I have always been a huge fan of your efforts and sincerely appreciate your hard work providing us with the hard work of the giant brained creators of the mods you include in the pack.  I tried so many mods that I never would have if you didnt put them in the Big Bang Pack and loved them.

Thanks again to you and EVERYONE who works so hard on these mods!  You have a LOT of fans!
