    Paul Masson said it best, "We will make no wine, before its time." Take your time, RL in all its insanity, is more important.NOW GET TO WORK SLACKER!!!

    A16 Valmod Pack

    Firearms 2 and Farm Life 2 have filled much of the gaping hole left in my games since Valmod became defunct. Both are outstanding, and add SO much to gameplay, especially in later stages when you're looking for something to keep you occupied.

    Odd thing I noticed about the coconut trees, no coconut water? when processing the coconuts a good amount of liquid should be included, could make it between water and snowberry juice for health numbers. From a RL standpoint, a person can survive for a good while on nothing but coconuts if need be. Omega deficiency would be the big pitfall, but combined with some form of protein you'd do Ok.

    Katsudon, Egg Drop Soup, Hasenpheffer, Venison Chili.....just some "food" for thought.

    Was a bit confused at first, but I puzzled my way thru it, figured it worked the same as the other pens. The tricky bit was the pellets, thankfully I found some roe as a loot drop and could get the recipe from that. Works great, got my first harvest a bit ago. The sakura trees are amazing, love the vibrant color.

    Damn that was fast! lol You sneaky bugger, we were JUST talking about fish a day ago. Off to DL the new version.

    The new plant models are beautiful, the squash/tomatoes type trellis designs look excellent. Haven't planted any trees yet, started a new game so I could try out this and Firearms 2 and have been rebuilding my base back to what I had before. Once I get everything squared away I'll work on getting my orchards back up and running. Holy hells, the new recipes are INSANE! I'm gonna have to limit myself to certain crops until I get over to the old farmstead on Navezgane, planting a row of everything will take up half the bloody map. Easy to tell you know a thing or two about cooking, all the recipes make sense and use proper ingredients. Now I just need FISH and I'll be set. Dunno if it's been asked yet or not, but any plans to add animated models of your livestock into the world as "roaming" creatures like the deer/pig/chickens already in the game? Would be helpful in early stages for people to get at least a few "premium" ingredients for cooking before they get pens up and running. Also might prod people NOT into farming to give it a go if they get a taste for the meats "on the hoof" which are a pain to track and hunt. Building a homestead and having them right there is a heck of a lot easier.
  8. Agreed Stasis, the Spas12 with Dragonsbreath rounds is a proper hoot, that thing is straight out of "The Expendables" with Terry Crews and his AA12 hammering rounds downrange bellowing "Remember this ^%$# at Christmas!" Can't help it, I've said that line more than a few times after surviving a bumrush of gomers coming at me out of a dark house in the game. LOL
  9. Well I'll be, had no idea Mayic is a fellow grunt. Pity he chose the wrong military branch. Army Airborne, no legs allowed! All kidding aside, anyone who chooses to serve has earned my respect, and gratitude. You guys made a damn fine mod, and I can't play the game without my trusty M1.

    No worries Stasis, figured you had a reason for leaving it out of your recipes. I live on seafood mostly IRL, and the utter lack of anything fish/crustacean related in the vanilla recipes drives me nuts in the game. With the massive increase in water areas on the 17.2 RGW maps I have a tiny hope that aquatic stuff MIGHT be something the Pimps are working on. Fish/crab traps in Conan Exiles add so much to the survival aspect with them being a passive source of food instead of hunting, it seems a huge shame 7 Days doesn't have anything like it.

    I get buckets back when harvesting my pens, possibly you've got a mod conflict. VERY happy with the tweaks to harvest amounts, excellent job on that. Started a fresh Navez map, and everything is working flawlessly, my only problem being anything flat around me is an orchard of some type now. Anything planned for using Raw Meat in your recipes? I've found that until the pens start producing, there aren't really any recipes other than the vanilla ones that use Raw Meat. I survive well enough making Stir Fry and other vegetarian dishes to go with Bacon & Eggs/ Stew, so it's not a huge issue.

    Syn, your additions to FarmLife are outstanding. I've spent most of my life painting/sculpting as a hobby, and as hard as it can be, what you graphic artists go thru makes my head explode. Itr's tough enough to make a sculpture do what you need it to when its a physical object, but learning an entirely new language in order to make something on a screen just boggles me. My hat is off to you and all the other artists who make our mods look so incredible.

    This right here is why modders are the best. Cooperation, sharing ideas, this stuff is what makes for amazing mods that blow away anything the "vanilla" version of a game has. I don't mean to take anything away from developers by any means, but they're in BUSINESS, and deadlines/cost/profit are the ultimate limits to what they can do, the game MUST come out in order to get paid, and often they just can't make things to please everyone. Modders do this stuff as a labor of love, spending insane amounts of time and effort creating entirely new aspects of a game simply for the love of creation. Brewing my own scotch and toting around an M1 Garand have utterly changed the game for me, all thanks to you two. You two rock, nuff said!

    This is awesome, I run mods from both of you (Firearms/Farmlife) and to see Jayick making a farming mod as well was great. Even better that both of them are being made to work together! The amazing animal assets from Jay's and the utterly mad depth of Stasis78's crafting are an astounding combo. A teamup for FarmLifeMod2 MUST happen

    Heya Stasis, Left a short comment on your video showing off the new pitchfork and KitchNaid, figured I'd fire off something a little more useful here. Been puttering around with the mod since you first released it, and love seeing it grow and develop. I lost hope of anything like this after Valmod was left in the dust of A16, but you've done an amazing job bringing life to the wasteland. I've gotten into a ritual of grabbing a hamburger and stout every time I trudge back to my base after roaming the world. There is such an abundance of things to do that there are times I'm honestly annoyed when a wandering zombie comes around and disturbs me, deeply offended even. Damn rotters interrupting my batch of merlot! Can't wait to play with a proper Glenlivet distillery. About the only thing that bothers me at all is that the pens seem to produce a small amount of produce considering the amount of effort in building/maintaining them. My Huntsman is at rank 3, and getting anything more than a few cuts of meat hasn't happened. I'm a butcher/fishmonger IRL, and just from a single prime rib roast (7 bone) that's 7 good sized ribeyes off one set of ribs, not even counting the ribs themselves. Brewing and such is a blast, the quests are simple, and get things rolling nicely. Out of curiousity, would it be possible to make actual recipe posters with ingredients and such to hang on the walls? A custom "Stasis Brewhouse" sign would be a hoot hanging on the front of my little hootch hut. Gin, single malt/ blended whisky, rum, tequila, moonshine, sake, (though for that you'd need a rice crop, which would open up a bunch of new cooking recipes!) all come to mind. Since we already have potatoes and corn all we'd really need are rye/barley for whisky. I consider your mod, Manux's vehicles, and Mayic's firearms mod to be essential. Those 3 add almost everything I need to the game: hootch and grub, a trusty M1 Garand, and a wicked cool dirtbike, everything a growing boy needs in the wasteland.
