Wilderness Overhaul Mod
This mod is only compatible with 0.C Cooper, the experimental builds have been significantly changing things and I’ve been too busy/sick to keep it up to date.
The purpose of this mod is to expand the low tech or ‘naturalist’ playstyle, and was started in this thread. It tweaks fabrication recipes so you can build a fully stocked blacksmith with nothing but raw materials, allows you to plant foraged foods and cuttings from fruit trees, adds herbal medicines, and provides a few basic constructions like firepits that you can use even on the move.
To get the most from the mod, turn the item spawn rate to the low single digits (.03).
Just place the Wilderness_Overhaul folder into your Cataclysm DDA\data\mods\ folder.

I’m still looking to add more cooking recipes that use foraged foods (rhubarb in particular is pretty worthless at the moment), but I’m starting to run out of ideas that can be achieved solely through JSON editing.
I have a few more ideas that require tweaking code that I’d like to add in the future, like sundials, weakened effects from herbal medicine, wooden dowels as a nails alternative (in some things), and tweaks to the spawned dahlias, bluebells, poppies, and dandelions that’d make them more suitable for inclusion into agriculture.
If there’s anything you’d like me to take a swing at, please let me know!
