  1. Good afternoon. After having discussed an issue on the General Thread, several people revealed to me that I am experiencing a bug instead of ignorance. You can also see the issue by clicking this link. Thank you for any assistance you may have. -TURTLESHROOM
  2. As the title says, this mod will give you food poisoning if you drink from a toilet or rain barrel. It also lets you take water from water tiles that you must distill before you can drink it. Features of dirty Water: Get sick drinking from a toilet or rainbarrelGet sick drinking water from a bottle, kettle, bowl, etc. filled from a toilet or rainbarrelCollect water from natural water sources (river, ocean, ponds, etc.)"Dirty" water in a bottle that is filled with "clean" water from a faucet is still considered "dirty" by pollution.Empty your "dirty" bottles before filling in "clean" water from faucets to not get sick anymore.Clean dirty water in containers with Bleach. A bottle of Bleach has 25 uses, one use is necessary to clean between 0.1 and 1.0 units of water. That means it takes 1 use of Bleach to clean a nearly empty bottle with 0.1 units left, but the same for 1.0 units, so be careful.Boil your water containers on stoves or campfires for at least 30 minutes if you have no bleach.This mod will change how Bleach appears and is handled in the game (it's no longer a Food, but an InventoryItem) and won't replace already spawned instances of Bleach, only new ones. It also implements stills, coolers and taking water from rivers and beaches. Features of salt Water: Pot stills. And Coolers.You can now collect saltwater from water tiles in any water container (yes, any!). This overwrites the water collection from the dirtyWater mod if both are active.You can pour saltwater into stills and light the fire below them to distill the water.If a cooler is positioned correctly next to the still, it will catch the distilled water.You can fill any water container from the cooler.Cooler changes sprite when it contains water.The rules of water states are: Adding clean water to clean water gives clean water. Adding dirty water to clean water gives dirty water. Adding clean water to dirty water gives dirty water. Adding saltwater to clean water gives saltwater. Adding clean water to saltwater gives saltwater. Adding dirty water to saltwater gives saltwater. Adding saltwater to dirty water gives saltwater. ISSUES In Build 30, there's an issue with the amount of water being stored. This'll fix itself through this issue: http://theindiestone.com/forums/index.php/tracker/issue-1261-rain-barrel-bug/?gopid=3850#entry3850 TODO: Balancing. Make still do something. Make coolers do something. Check for possible bug duplicating stills and coolers. Make saltwater collectible. But from where? River? WONTDO I will not start calculating the dilution of saltwater to check if it's becoming drinkable. COMPATIBILITY Version 0.9 is NOT backwards compatible to 0.8 and earlier. Too much has changed, sorry. Version 0.9.5 is NOT backwards compatible to 0.9. The separation of the mods has changed the items category from DirtyWater to SaltWater LICENSE: You are free to use this mod in any way, shape or form. I consider it public domain, as far as possible. It would still be nice if you credit me if you use it for anything amazing (do not credit me if you use it to annoy your neigbour). Sprites are © Thuztor, ask him before you do anything with it. dirtyWater_0.8.zip dirtyWater_0.9.zip dirtyWater_0.9.5.zip saltWater_0.9.5.zip
  3. Had a bit of a brain wave today. Often, when playing PZ, I don't bother levelling up my carpenting skill that quickly. Even when the water supply konks out, I know there's enough charges left in nearby taps, showers and toilets to keep me going for a while. Often, I'll start filling buckets and cooking pots full of water, then haul them back to the safehouse for a nice little reserve to keep me going until I finally get around to learning to saw a log in half properly. This normally results in a container full of containers of water in the safehouse. So, I got to thinking about water management. I suggest that we be given the ability to empty containers of water into a rain barrel, and that some form of indicator be implemented to inform us how full a water barrel is (in addition to the visual feedback we get now). Say, when you're standing near a rain barrel, you right click on a bucket of water. You see a prompt 'Pour into container: Rain barrel, 75% full'. Click, and there the water goes, just like pouring water into the various empty bottles we have now. Why would this be useful? You might not be getting that much rain, but the full water barrel is a damned useful asset. So, you haul water. The water gets placed in a single, centralised location that you can use to fill up your watering cans, bottles, etc. without the ponderousness of having to fill them by pouring: Instead of having a full cooking pot and a bottle in your inventory, pouring water into the bottle, and storing the pot back in the cabinet, you can simply right-click on the rainbarrel and fill the bottle direct. Suddenly, a rainbarrel doesn't need to be crafted outside to be useful. You could store a large amount of water in a rainbarrel indoors, while your collection point is outside, or hidden elsewhere. Convenience. Maybe the external source of water (be it another barrel, a well, houses with water still in the pipes) has been cut of by zombies, or perhaps you don't want to erect a structure outside that screams 'safehouse' to avoid attracting other players on a PVP server. Or perhaps you're doing some gardening indoors, and walking back outside to fill the watering can is too much of a pain. Again, the convenience of having a large amount of water right there, where you need it. To further extend the concept, perhaps the player could craft a 'water barrel' or 'water tank'. Similar in capacity to the end-tier rain collecting barrel, but craftable at a much lower skill level. This water container would be inferior to even the first teir rain collector, or be incapable of collecting rainwater altogether, but would serve as a convenient place to stockpile water in and around the safehouse. A 'water barrel' could be cheaper in terms of resource expenditure too. You could argue that the large amount of garbage bags used in the construction of the existing rain collecting barrels are used to not only waterproof the container, but serve as a water catchment framework (i.e: Plastic funnel) to help collect water better. The 'water barrel' could then require less garbage bags to construct, as you're only making the barrel water tight. Or perhaps the amount of bags needed to make the high-end rain barrel (or both) could be raised to make storing hauled water more attractive. As a final alternative to consider, perhaps the 'water barrel' concept could be pushed towards the other extreme and become an expensive and very high capacity water storage vessel, ideal for storing all the usable water for a fortress. TL;DR The ability to pour water from containers back into a rain barrel would enable us to stockpile water inside rain barrels situated indoors, or during a dry spellBeing able to pour water from containers into rain barrels would make hauling water from nearby houses a much more attractive proposition, as you no longer need to collect a large amount of pots/buckets to store this hauled waterA new rain barrel ('water barrel') that is very bad/incapable of collecting water, has the same overall capacity, and is easier to craft than an end tier rain barrel would be highly useful. Stockpiling rain or hauled water indoors, or close to where it is needed (i.e: kitchen, indoor garden) would be most convenientEven when the ability to stockpile water in a bathtub (or similar pre-made container) is implemented, being able to build a water storage container (rain barrel or water barrel) wherever you want would give players more flexibility in how they set up their safehouses/supply caches.
  4. I was watching one of Mathas' videos of PZ, and he was suggesting that perfect, water-tight rain barrels should not be available to build at level 0. I agree, but then I thought, why would rain barrels even be necessary? Just drag over a wheely bin and pop the top open. Of course, to balance it, you could make it so that you have a pretty high chance to get sick from the garbage water unless you perform a "clean" interaction that consumes 1 sheet or 1 bath towel, and 1 jug of bleach. Perhaps to balance this out bleach could be made slightly less common.
  5. With the upcoming water rain barrel collecting, there should be times of drought, mainly in the spring and summer, but also in the winter. Not always, but there should be times when it just doesn't rain.
