[1.0] Skilled Stonecutting (restore crafting xp gain)
« on: November 21, 2017, 02:06:56 PM »

Skilled Stonecutting

Description:
In earlier versions of RImworld, stonecutting chunks into blocks gave pawns increases in their crafting skill. As of B18, it gives no skill at all. This mod restores the experience gain, so pawns will once again gain crafting experience from stonecutting. The experience gain is identical to earlier versions of Rimworld (values are taken from A16).

It also makes it so that characters make blocks more quickly as their crafting skill increases.

Manual installation:
Download from https://www.nexusmods.com/rimworld/mods/227/?
- Unzip the contents and place them in your RimWorld\Mods folder (if using Steam, this will be under Steam\Steamapps\common\Rimworld\Mods\ )

Thank you so much for this. The vanilla game shouldn't have nerfed it.

Thank you for this beautiful bug fix.

I am still stunned about the whole change, and was further surprised that crafting blocks now gives NOTHING in B18. As it's now based on nothing, nothing seems to speed it up. It's like the more we challenge their logic on it, the more they dig their heels in that it's "working as intended".

It reminds me of when you call somebody on doing something that they know was wrong, and they don't want to admit that it was wrong, and instead spend a lifetime justifying it. "Oh yeah? Well I'll show you what really sucks because you should just shut up, because I'm right, that's why, goddammit"

The beatings will continue until morale improves.

If it is working as intended, how does one get their crafter constructor to use that crafting construction Stonecutter's Table but not use the smithing tailoring Crafting Spot, thereby wasting all the bills and materials that you were hoping your crafter would use to level up their crafting so that one day they can become a successful tailor-smith?

The mess that drug manufacturing is now is what will end up happening here. Instead of fixing whatever root problem they thought there was with making stone blocks earn drug / tailoring / smithing skill, they just moved it to construction without checking the other flags to make sure it still worked. That's a bug, introduced by a quick hack to fix a different problem, plain and simple.

Following the logic that got us to this point, somebody who crafts constructs stone bricks for a living shouldn't be as good at constructing crafting leather furniture as a tailor, so that should give crafting xp now, but your tailor should have to be assigned to construction in order to do it because it's not really a tailoring job. ::)

IIRC, someone figured out that in vanilla, for some reason, Stonecutting speed is now determined by Construction skill, though it doesn't give XP.

I think this may not be working correctly for me (understandable since I have many, many mods) because my pawns with prioritized construction work will always prefer completing stonecutting bills to doing literally anything else. I believe it may be a compatibility issue with some other mods that change priorities, mainly kaptain_kavern's "Corrected Workgivers". Should I put this mod below or above in the load order? Or should I just not load both mods simultaneously?

Looks like the Nexus Mods version is corrupted. Any chance of a re-upload, or a Github link? Thanks!

Anything is fine with the nexus file.
If your archive tool can't open it, maybe try a different tool or update your current one.
