This mod lets structures come crashing down when their support structures are removed. All structures must have a wall in a 5x5 area below or get destroyed.

Also prevents players from building floors more than 3 tiles away from any wall.

Be aware that any player (and zombie) that is below a crashing structure will get hurt, maybe even killed...

I'm still working on the details and effects of this, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to reply!

 

 

This is what happens when you remove enough supporting structures:

This is the new maximum distance to build floors:

And this is what happens when you stand below a single floortile crashing down on you:

This is a great idea, but I think it fits that with carpentry/metalwork skill you can expand how far you can build out.

 

Like, what if I wanted to build my own school classroom or mess hall?

Long wanted the carpentry skill to determine how  high you can build. Breadth would also be great.

does this use like a sledgehamemr event? or would it work no matter how the walls get destroyed? like by fire or car collisions?

 

It did at first, but Build 35 introduced an Event "OnTileDestroyed" which I hook in to now. So it will work with all tile-destructions that fire this event.

GREAT idea :)

 

but... what about vanilla structures that don't have pillars in 5x5 ?  I am pretty sure there are some ingame (even if not 100% sure atm)

 

any reason to be afraid to enter a great hall the first time? 

 

No, there's no reason to be afraid. Unless you start destroying walls. Existing structures are not affected, the destruction only fires when a wall gets destroyed (and only a wall, not a couch or table for example).

You need to make sure to have support structures in a 3x3 area around the floor tiles. A quick sketch shows that a wall every 5 tiles is enough:

...................
...................
...................
...X.....X.....X...
...................
...................
...................
...................
...X.....X.....X...
...................
...................
...................

If you place walls at the X tiles, then you can place floors above on all the . tiles.

someone try setting a house on fire and see what happens.  Fire changes the walls to "burnt" version of the same wall doesnt really delete walls so I dont think the upper floors would fall down in the case of fire.

 

what happens if there is containers and items and such on the ground in upper floors? will they fall to the ground?

I still think its a good idea to be able to increase this if you have high carpentry. I know half of my base is going to collapse.

So for school gymnasiums and large classrooms, will they fall?

I've been thinking of allowing larger build breadth by one tile every 3 levels of carpentry, but that would collapse more quickly. I have to think about how to balance that out.

 

Also, school gyms and large classrooms will collapse if you remove their supporting walls. Unless you add supports in the middle first. See the first screenshot on the OP.

The containers will get destroyed, giving some building materials back. The contents will be scattered on the ground.

Too easy to take down with sledges for MP.  

 

That's entirely the point. If you want a base, you need to defend it. Also, you can build more supports.

It would also be interesting to see lower level carpentry walls support less than higher level. Also do the wooden beams act as supports as well?

I don't understand the first sentence, but wooden beams act as supports just as walls do.

Perhaps if I rephrase it,  if the player has a lower caprentry level the walls made by that player being weaker would be less able to support as many upper level floor tiles.

skyforts are nothing but a vile tumor growing around the surface of the beautiful map devs spent years on making and they need to be annihilated once and for all, 100% agree with this mod, and i completely absolutely disagree with paul redeker on every level i possibly can and will disagree on as always

This might be hard to implement but allowing the addition of a column in 4 corner of a game square might solve this problem (yes this means that all walls have columns in the end of them) , so like walls are easily destroyed but columns needs a lot of damage to take down so then in order to bring down a building they need to sledge not only the walls (whch came down with a few hits) but also the column which needs about 2-5 mins of constant hitting of the column with a sledge. This will make the column become a critical thing in game to protect or to reinforce.

I have 3 questions for this mod:

 

1. Would pillars be seen as support for a building?

2. Would the entire building collapse, or just the floors above destroyed wall or pillar?

3. Would this mod affect all buildings in the game, or just the buildings build by players?
