So, if anyone is still tracking the my SHTF mod, you may have noticed with several peoples help, I was able to get the ball mill to work in game.
It works in the recipe only as a carried item. Now, I tried using a cvd machine in game but using the terrain editor via the Debug menu, but diamond recipes won’t work with it. So, that tells me a few things and leaves a few questions too:
Q1) Does the terrain editor not properly “cheat” in terrain or furniture to be used as a cvd machine should?
Q2) Does the recipe for diamond items require a “legit found” cvd machine?
Q3) Does the cvd machine even work as it is supposed to; i.e. standing next to an actual terrain cvd machine allows you to craft diamond items?
Q4) Since I can’t find any proper usage or discussion concerning the cvd machine, has anyone actually properly used one to confirm its use as a static object?
And lastly, someone more towards my mod direction:
Q5)If a static terrain feature usable in a recipe is Not actually possible and the cvd is broken in a sense, would it be easier to simple make an insanely heavy “item” and give it a non-bug description unlike the cvd machine “item” and use that for gunpowder crafting?
