The Pond Mod:
pond_mod.smod - Google Drive
I’ve added new items!
- Raised pond corner
- Raised pond edge
- Golden bridge
Some people will be extra pleased with this one…
I’ve re-scaled the bridge and centered it to a 2x4 grid, for easy pond-crossing.
The only other big change is that I removed all collision boxes from the old pond pieces, allowing the water under the bridge to be customised. Unfortunately, this also means many wet boots as the hearthlings are too lazy to use the bridge!
There is currently one bug I know of, related to ??? being placed in a stockpile… It’s completely ignorable but if anybody knows how to get rid of it, please let me know!
I’d also greatly appreciate it if somebody could standardise the models’ colour palette for me! StoneVox unfortunately can’t let you save palettes yet!
Summary: This mod adds a new crafting category for the mason, letting him build water-tight, stone-lined ponds.
- Corner pond piece
- Corner pond piece (inside corner)
- Edge pond piece
- Middle pond piece
- Middle pond piece (with budding lillies)
- Middle pond piece (with lillies)
- Middle pond piece (with lilly & flower)
- Small Bridge
Unfortunately, I am not a programmer so I had to divide it into individual pieces. I know it’s not as nice as you would probably like it to be… This could possibly be hacked to be painted in as a road with edge and corner pieces placed automatically, but its out of my range of abilities.
Special Thanks to @honestabelink for his tutorials and StoneVox 3D.
I was going to work on this more but I’m running short on free time, so feel free to make progress on it!
I’d also like to dedicate this to @Relyss. I feel like it’d make a good addition to her fountain:
Issues with this mod:
Well for starters,
Derek: “What is this?!? A bridge for ANTS?!?”
It looked a lot bigger in the editor, I swear! I think all of the pieces might look better if they were doubled in size.
The bridge is also not walkable. I don’t know the minimum dimensions hearthlings need to be able to pass through an area, but it is only 1 block in width. [FIXED]
There is also an issue with placement. I seem to have gotten the piece alignment figured out but there is an occasional problem placing pieces in places where they’d be ‘surrounded’. My tip is to build your ponds from the inside outwards. [Still there… but better!]
