Have you ever imagined you can put things inside the ancient racks, lockers and crates instead of dismantling them for nothing? Have you ever died from dehydration while hacking through the vault gates? Have you ever wished the junks can be more than a decoration of inconvenience? Then this is the mod for you!
It all started when I'm using VFE ancient's vault start, with dub's bad hygiene and thirst system on, and ended up having to dig up the steel floor to make a primitive well inside a high-tech vault, right next to that water filter. And I decided I can't continue my playthrough without having this mod made.
While it only strictly requires ideology DLC to function since junk is a DLC-thing, this mod is best to be used in conjunction with Dub's Bad Hygiene, LWM's Deep Storage, Vanilla Faction Expanded-Ancients, as each mod gives junks more function. However you DON'T
have to install all of them, their representative patches will function independently.
Be aware, this mod is risky, unrecommended, yet possible to be loaded mid-save. https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=836308268https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=1617282896https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/?id=2654846754
If you insist to do so, destroy (not uninstall) all storage related junks prior or after the mod has been added. Any new junks will behave normally.
What does this mod do?
- With ideology
Some junks will become uninstallable, mostly the small ones. Fences, generators and vehicle debris remain unchanged.
Slightly optimized ancient beds and ancient operating table
- With Dub's Bad Hygiene
The ancient kitchen sink now functions as your own sink, you can wash and drink with it, as long as your pawn don't mind the rust. The ancient toilet is usable too, and the fire hydrant behaves like fire sprinklers.
- With LWM's Deep Storage
Many storage-themed junks become actual storage buildings, and all of them are uninstallable.
- With VFE-Ancients
The ancient computer desk, ancient monitor bank, ancient input terminal and ancient transmitter is now uninstallable. And the ancient computer desk is now recognized as a valid table to eat with.
- With VFE-Ancients AND Dub's Bad Hygiene
The ancient water filter now functions as an all-in-one water center: pumping, storing and purifying of clean water, containment and treatment of sewage, a direct output of water for drinking or bottling, and it works in solar flare as other ancient devices do!
Compatible with [O21] Ancient Demolition
and Worthless Junk
Compatible with Ben Lubar's Vanilla Expanded Patches
. When used in conjunction with Ben Lubar's Vanilla Expanded Patches, the ancient water filter will work in Ben Lubar's way, except you can drink directly from is like how I did.
Please tell me if any problem arises.
This mod is currently NOT
compatible with DBH Lite mode. I'm trying to figure it out.
Great thanks for the author of Dub's bad hygiene, LWM's deep storage, VFE-Ancients, and of course the Ludeon atudio or this mod wouldn't have existed.
