[0.9.1a] Supply Forging 1.1
« on: December 22, 2019, 10:33:59 PM »





For those who hate metal.
Compatible with all known mods.
Integrated with
Version Checker.
Can be added to existing games.
Can be removed from games in which it was already used.
Simple as.

Don't you just hate how there's so many metal that carrying excess metal is literally making you lose credit? Supply Forging gives you the option to convert these junk into metal.
It converts metal and heavy machinery to supply.
This process can be better by carrying a nanoforge in your cargo.
However, don't do it in plain sight or dangerous space! All the heat from the forging makes you so easy to spot.

Frequent Questions
How exactly is the conversion ratio (fuel per unit of supplies) calculated?
(base-metal-value + base-heavy-machinery value) / base-supply-value = metal/heavymachinery per supply
This works even if the base value of metal, heavy machinery, or supplies has been modified.
When possessing a Corrupted Nanoforge or Pristine Nanoforge, you forge supplies more efficiently. (Corrupted: +50%, Pristine: +100%)

What options does this mod provide?
You can edit settings.json to change a few things relevant to the mod, including conversion ratios, the price and efficiency of fuel, and the sensor profile penalty while forging supplies. In fact, you can even add new commodities to make it consume more than just metal and heavy machinery! Check out in the setting.json for a lot more advice!

Why don't I see the "Supply Forge" ability after adding the mod?
If you added Supply Forge to an existing game, it won't be assigned to your toolbar yet.
You may need to assign it manually by right-clicking the ability toolbar.

Credits
@Sundog - Totally did not base the entire mod on Fuel Siphoning.
@isaacssv552 - Nanoforges Idea
@Wispborne - Some based stuff for Version 1.1
@PizzaPolice - Tested stuff. This ability was originally going to convert transplutonics and metal into supplies, but he gave me a better idea.

Rather weird considering supplies also consist of rations, clothing and such. Breakfast? Metal. Yum!

Probably isn't significantly rations for people, because your supply usage doesn't change with your crew levels, and food is already a thing that is in the game. Although maybe organics should be salvaged as loot as well and then the process can use organics.

That's what the nanoforge is for.  ;)

Congratulations. I don't know if you read my thoughts or it was because I posted somewhere about it. Now I won't have to keep doing mirabolate accounts every time I want to turn metal into supplies using the console commander. kkkkkkkk.

Changelog 1.1:


  • Added new variable in setting.json: "SF_MetalConversionRate", "UseExtraCommodities", "ExtraCommodities#", and "ExtraCommoditiesCost#".
  • Forces the Supply Forge to consume other commodities to produce supplies if you edited in the setting.json.
  • - By default, Supply Forging still cost the same metal and heavy machinery but now you can add new commodities for you more hardcore players!
