Regenerating Boulders modlet A20


Recommended Posts



I wanted surface boulders to be able to regenerate after a while so I can go harvest them again. This makes the game less challenging by not requiring deeper mining for resources, but that's kind of what I wanted (specifically when paired with other mods that drop materials from boulders).

With this mod, when boulders are destroyed past their final cracked form, they will turn into a small stone, except you can't pick it up. You can leave this stone alone and it will eventually turn back into a boulder (after a few real life hours) or you can keep smashing it and it will be permanently destroyed (in case you want to clear the area to build on). This small stone can't be picked up and does not give any yield for harvesting, it's just there to let you know the mod is working and will regenerate in that position.

Hmm I wonder what if i dig a big hole on the "perm small rock" will it dissappear or its will drop into the hole for the process of growing?
Gravity physics will cause the small rock to fall in the hole and break, losing the regenerating boulder.

I've added a subversion that supplements my Mining modlet, which adds regenerating boulder support for copper and zinc boulders. Additionally, the link to the older v2 seemed broken (it was linking to v1 for A17) so I'm not sure anyone was getting regenerating ore boulders that were added in A18. That's fixed now, too.

your mod have a problem with art of mining one shot ore that not drop a rock after instant shot


I don't understand you.


If you want to report an issue to me about a mod I've written, be clear, provide details including screen shots, full descriptions of the issue or issues including how to reproduce the problem, and what you expect versus what actually happened. Try to be as specific as possible and use complete, English sentences. I can't help you if you can't give me info about the problem you're having. Finally, make sure you are experiencing the issue with only my mod loaded. I can't troubleshoot mod compatibility issues with other mod authors.

Hello, your download links for both version 1.05 point to version 1.04.
If you change the link manually to 05, the download works. But it would be better if you change it ;).
Great mod otherwise!

Thanks -- I've corrected the links :)

Does this need to be on both server and client or is it just server side???


That's a good question, since TFP have changed how servers push modlet data to clients.  It's possible you may be able to install this exclusively at the server.  Try it and find out?  😄

I have a problem with the mod, namely I can no longer uninstall the mod let alone find the at all. Also the mod order has disappeared and therefore unfortunately can not play Alpha 21, but only Alpha 20. Also uninstalling the game has brought nothing.
Can you possibly help me?
