Modding / Re: How can i make a selection of items in modded cooking?
« on: April 18, 2019, 10:46:46 PM »
I added this to cookery_glossary, it works, but i can't select specific salted meat, the recipe automatically takes any salted meat that is upper in the inventory list.

If you specify a weight value #x.x vs an amount, (1) one being assumed in your script.
The game will ask where to take the weight from via item select.

Just verified in v3.52 (stable) there is no issue with {Cord} being detected and accepted as an ingredient.

If you make something else like:
.6branches. "Cord"
{Branch} (6) [remove]

It will not be detected or accepted item 6branches as {Cord}
It will however be accept 6branches as {Rope} and {Tying equipment}

Bug reports / Re: Cave visibility

Wait are you saying that if I floor the whole cave  it will have normal inside visibility like a cabin with no shutter walls? I had no idea. That just made cave dwelling allot more appealing.

Yes, caves are one of my favorite homes

Not sure it's a bug.
1) Much of most caves are in darkness.
2) Usually the best spot for a door ends up being a tile labeled "surface of the earth" or something. This tile allows light over about the front 6 tiles of the cave or so.
3) Building a door limits the light that gets in to about 2 tiles. Dismantling the door does not reset the tile to "surface of the earth" if I recall.
4) You need to build floor/ceiling on the whole floor, then the whole area will be visible like inside a building.

What do I do now that I've built the door?
I Usually make a big fire and build as many floor/ceilings around the illuminated area while the fire "light" burns. You can also use torches to light up so you can start tasks.

I though that lit torches made fire starting almost automatic? This is the mechanic I was looking to use.

- added: carrying lit torch or having a fire in adjacent tile helps to build a fire

Can you make a recipe using a torch as the base item that produces no light?

I ask because a very ancient way of fire lighting was to have a smoldering ember of something and carry that with you. The torches functionality with lighting a fire would be the in game equivalent, but such things wouldn't produce any light, especially when tucked away in a pack.

Like in "Quest for fire"? No, the game assumes you have flint or something with you all the time.

Mod Releases / Re: Making salt out of sea water

Id like to hear a bit of feedback on the work vs price/utility.

My own character Novrus is stuck in his quest to get a bag of salt.
Which also raises the question...
Is the player made salt something that be used to satisfy the "Salt from the coast" quest?

Salt is intended to be a rare/expensive import. However as someone who has modded the dead.. more than once. I support most any thoughtful use of things that can be done in the game.

To me both the price and salt being only imported good are quite good and reasonable and I don't see the changes coming anytime soon. Although, if we find historical reference to salt having been far less valued during the period then it's gotta be tweaked.

Baltic sea salinity doesn't really encourage to salt production and I think majority of the salt was brought in Finland from central europe, eg. Germany. And I have a hunch of reading that during iron-age salt was in turn imported to central europe all the way from Africa.

Salt is a luxurity mostly for coastal southern tribes, and not necessary (or affordable) at all for everyone.

This could be a good day to utilize your squirrels hides.

Last opinion I remember from Sami on the topic.

Modding / Re: How does diy [optional] work in detail?
« on: January 10, 2019, 07:47:17 PM »
 Though (I believe) the parameter [optional] was intended for cooking to allow some flexibility in preprogramed food menus.
The parameter is supported in the Diy_ environment.

I've used it to create complex/specific name patterns for multiphase projects like in "Leaving your Mark on the world"

This was something I used before I made the Massive Menu mod which created so much menu space, but it does allow for different
products names to be made from one common task.

Without [noquality] the task below could be boosted with a fine axe, but could be dragged down by rough axe, while using no axe may boost the most.

.mega board. "Board" /1m/
{Axe} [optional]

A pea soup becomes "a pot of pea".

I notice that carpentry is used for making most objects..... Can you not add a skill to the ini_skills file?

Never mind.... it seems no, you can't.....

   - Shane
ini_skills file, only has effect when survivor is created.

I tried and created a test character, no additional skills.  :-\
Do they just not display?

   - Shane

Unfortunately you can't add new skill trees to the game with the current modding system. That's also why some modders choose to use "weatherlore" as a wildcard. Usually for ironworking. That ini file is for changing the starting bonuses for different tribes.

 As stated above, Sorry I misunderstood the question.
