This module is a part of Vanilla Furniture Expanded which can be downloaded below. Vanilla Furniture Expanded is not required to play with this module.
Vanilla Furniture Expanded - Farming module is a great way to boost the efficiency of your colonies when it comes to providing food on the table. With a plethora of new hydroponics - one for early game and one for late game, you can really witness the technological progression of your colony - and gain more enjoyment from the game itself.
A very popular request on all suggestion threads on RimWorld Ludeon forums is draggable hydroponics - at this point I believe it’s my duty to deliver, hence all three kinds of hydroponics now have a draggable version! Make it any shape you want!
New structures by the likes of animal feeder, a sprinkler and a scarecrow have been added, each with unique code to make them feel more authentic. The scarecrow will actually make animals flee, hence stopping them from devouring all your precious potatoes!
Don’t wait any longer, give it a go and let us know if you’d see anything changed.
If any pieces of furniture disappear upon being built, move the mod further up the mod queue.
If an animal is downed within the vicinity of a scarecrow, it will constantly throw errors about "_animal_ tried to path while downed" because the game's trying to assign the "flee" job to it despite it being downed. I'm pretty sure it won't have any effects on gameplay, but it will spam your error log until the animal isn't downed anymore (dead/rescued). Will look into it when time allows.

Q: What can I expect to see on the development blog on your patreon?
A: Patrons have been able to see the progress on this and many other mods for quite some time now, advising me every step of the way. I try to post several times a week, which is a perfect opportunity to get to know the development process.
Q: Can I suggest a feature?
A: Absolutely, leave a comment down below!
Q: Will you keep updating the mod with new farming means?
A: If I find a commonly requested feature to be viable and fitting, I will not hesitate to make it a part of this mod.
Q: Do I need the base module for it to work?
A: No, our goal has always been zero dependencies. You don’t need anything for this mod to work.
Q: Is this mod compatibile with Combat Extended?
Q: I can see a sprinkler there. Does it work with Dubs Hygiene mod?
A: Well, it does work ALONGSIDE Dubs, but they don’t currently share functionality. We are looking into making Sprinkler requiring water at some point in the future.
Q: What's the limit of a small animal for the scarecrow scare mechanic?
A: Muffalo size, however Predator type animals remain unaffected.
Q: Why is your mod special?
A: I am a vanilla player. Anything that doesn't suit vanilla game makes me cringe and I stay away from it. I did however find the game lacking after some time, therefore I've created these farming means to be as accurate and as close to vanilla graphics style as possible. What is special? The best part is - nothing in this mod is special at all. Nothing will make you go "Oh that's unusual", because the whole purpose of this mod is to blend into the existing game.
Q: Is this mod save game compatible?
A: Yes, you can add it and remove it whenever you like.
Q: How does the sprinkler work? I can't see the growth rate increase!
A: Applying a percentage change to the visual side of the growth rate would require a large processing power and could potentially lead to FPS drops and slow downs. The way we have it instead, is that several times a day the sprinkler will add a flat +X percent boost to surrounding plants. They grow faster because of that, despite the Growth rate being the same.
