Title: [0.19] Soil Clarifier - Find that rich soil!
Post by: 5thHorseman on August 18, 2018, 11:52:13 PM

DOWNLOAD ON STEAM (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1484929685)
DOWNLOAD FROM ME (Version 0.1) (http://pulpaudio.com/rimworld/mods/soilclarifier/SoilClarifer01.zip)
(Presumably this is on ModSync 1.0 but I don't use it so have no idea if it works or not)

WHAT DOES IT DO?

All it does is darkens rich soil and lightens poor soil and mud, to make them easier to see next to each other and to normal soil (which I don't change).

WHAT IF I WANT MORE?

Feel free to ask.

If you hate my images, please make me new ones. I am not an artist so just did the best I could.

WHAT'S NOT COMPATIBLE WITH IT?

Any other mods that change these 3 specific graphics. Nothing else, I'd expect.

Cool idea, I'll give it a try when I get home.
What about a tool that lets you create a growing zone on rich soil only? Would something like that even be possible?

There are a couple out there, but not for unstable build yet:

New zone tools : https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=17094.0

Easier grow zones : https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=784123492

Neither let you see better, so they work well with a mod like this that improves your vision of rich soil to begin with.

The lack of New Zone Tools is what prompted me to try this mod. I found a few that did exactly this (one that retextured only rich soil, and one that did a couple including rich and poor soil) but both were so old that they coulnd't even be practically upgraded to 0.19, they would have had to be rewritten. So instead of rewriting one, I just wrote my own.

And sadly my skills do not extend to the level of modifying how the game works. I can fiddle with what's there, but not add anything brand new like zoning based on land type.

I've updated this on Steam, but not the website yet.

No actual change, just 1.0 versioning. Note that it will work just fine in 0.19 as it's literally exactly the same.
