Different materials for Vents

I'd like to be able to make stronger vents for temperature stabilization.  It's a useful thing to have, but with only 100 hp it can sometimes make for a huge weakspot in a structure.  Making plasteel doors doesn't really feel useful when there's a weak little vent just waiting to be busted through...

A potential solution is to allow for the creation of vents out of different materials - specifically, anything but stone.

It's a pretty simple idea, but being able to make plasteel vents for example would really fix some base design flaws inherent to the game.


The main problem are vanilla vent's replace the wall they are build on.
Mods like
BetterVents, Adds vents that sit inside walls.

Maybe you should look for such a soltution.


I would say it would be better to build vents out of any wall mateerial plus steel.


I really like this idea. It seems like eventually most buildables should be able to be manufactured from a variety of materials. Vents, air conditioners, heaters, even a lot of the power generation items like waterwheels. I assume this wouldn't be difficult to code and would add a little extra level of customization to the camp.
