  1. It's amazing work. I for one believe you should consider releasing it on the Steam Workshop as a modding resource. It adds a bit of functionality that plain doesn't exist in the game. A fair few modders out there would use it if they knew about this. Also, do you have a username/id on Steam? I'd like to add you as a contributor to the mod you've helped me with. It's the least I can do.
  2. Oh wow, this is amazing. I, just... thank you. You have no idea how much this helps me. When I first asked the question, I thought it was just a simple hidden variable somewhere. Again, thank you for your help and effort.
  3. Well, as I said, that was an example. I'm not sure how to implement the lua file inside the recipe. I was hoping you could give me advice in that regard. I tried the following: recipe Fry Chicken { keep Pan, Chicken, AAABreadingBowl;4, Egg, Water;2, AAACookingOil;2, NearItem:cookingUtils, Result:ChickenFried, Time:60.0, Category:Cooking, OnGiveXP:Give3CookingXP, } Adding that line into the recipe. However it didn't work. I also tried NearItem:Stove among others, with no such luck.
  4. Ah, okay. I had the lua file in the right place. Initially I thought it went in server at first but then I realized it belonged in client. Admittedly, I'm still really new to coding in lua (or any programming language for that matter) so I kinda apologize for coming off sounding newb-ish at this. As for the recipes file. Well, here is a good example of one of the recipes I have created. There are a few others, but they're all functionally versions of this first one: recipe Fry Chicken { keep Pan, Chicken, AAABreadingBowl;4, Egg, Water;2, AAACookingOil;2, Result:ChickenFried, Time:60.0, Category:Cooking, OnGiveXP:Give3CookingXP, } Basically, its a recipe that lets you pan fry chicken with a few necessary ingredients. (As a note to avoid confusion in the above recipe, "AAABreadingBowl" and "AAACookingOil are custom items.) As the recipe is currently written, one can functionally fry said chicken over a magical fire of nothing basically. Also, as for the NearItem variable I mentioned above, I read about it while trying to figure out how to get the recipe to work near a heat source. "NearItem:Campfire," works perfectly as intended, but it makes the recipe only craftable near, well, a campfire. In my experimentation, the campfire doesn't even need to be lit either, it just has to exist. Again, thanks for the help.
  5. A bit late, but I have a question regarding the implementation of the lua code. I should have asked a couple of other questions, but does CookingUtil.lua go in the client or server folder inside the mod? Or does it go somewhere else? Also, is "NearItem.isCloseToCookingUtil" the correct way to implement it in the recipe, or did I completely bodge it up?
  6. Holy shit, you the real OG. It's surprising that stoves/campfires/etc are all unique to to such a degree, It's also a little surprising something like this doesn't really exist in the game. Now I need to figure out how to use this. Is " isCloseToCookingUtil" the part you add into the custom recipe entry, or did I misread something? Also, again, thank you. You're doing great things for the community.
  7. What the title says. I'm working on a mod that adds new cooking recipes, among other things. Basically, I want to try and make it so that you have to be adjacent or near something like a stove or campfire to create the recipe. Is this at all possible?
  8. So, I posted this in the Steam forums, but I'm going to repost it here since it's a little urgent and is related to farming. So, there seems to be an issue I have discovered with Hydrocraft and treating crops for Mildew/Flies. Attempting to treat diseased crops with Mildew Spray or Insecticide Spray results in an error: While this isn't as bad as the irrigation bug, it does prevent crops from being treated for disease. This can be a bad thing. Also, a couple of other small issues: -Broken icons (that I have found): Boiled Mussel (Fresh) Dead Electric Multitool Dried Garlic Dried Onion Melted Serve Icecream Open Cat Food (Fresh) Powered Electric Multitool Wheat Seeds Packet -Items "Meat cleaver" and "Energy bar" both need capitalization on the second word. Finally, a small suggestion: Considering that the Knox County IRL is so wet it's drowning in alcohol, could we have more locations for some of the alcohol items introduced by Hydrocraft to spawn? Right now they only appear in Bar containers, i.e. taverns and the like. I actually didn't know they existed until recently when I was looting the bar counters of a tavern, and I had to confirm that the bottled beer and liquors were from Hydrocraft and not another mod. Just a small and polite suggestion.

    I like this post. I like all of this post. The Mad Max cars, the post apocalyptic banjo, all of it.
  11. So, the 'Corn Syrup' item's icon is bugged: Just thought I'd give you a heads up about it, in case you didn't know. Build 39, only Hydrocraft, so I know it's not a conflict.
  12. Hahaha, That's literally what I've been doing up until now, slaughtering the undead and looking for which one stole my keys. Honestly I was hoping it would be something simple, like a boolean in a config file somewhere. I know house keys rarely spawn inside containers in a given building, but that's also very hit and miss. Also, I know it's probably not a big thing for most other people, but it's more for immersion's sake.
  13. Pretty much what it says on the tin. A while ago, I read on the wiki that your character has a chance to spawn with their home's key(40% IIRC), but after making several new characters it seems that that rarely if ever happens. I'm wondering then if it is at all possible to increase the chance of, or guarantee, that you spawn with your housekey? If there's an option for such deep inside the game's files. I'vwe looked but I didn't find anything of the like, so I thought to ask here. Any help would be appreciated.
  14. So I followed the steps, got the WIP vehicle build, only for it to crash on startup in both regular and Compatibility mode. Intel Core i7 GeForce GTX980m 12 Gb RAM
