Configurable Decoration Removal

Post by AWildTyphlosion »

It would be nice if we can adjust the RNG of concrete to be able to remove decorations when placed, or just have it be removed all together when we place concrete. While there is an option to remove decorations already, I don't believe it is a good fix because decorations are nice, just not ontop of concrete. There is also an existing mod to fix this so I'm sure it's not difficult, it's just that using mods disables achievements which kind of sucks.

I don’t think that this will be implemented: to avoid desynchronization, it would have to be to the same across all players for a server.

I’m not sure, what you mean, notrexbutcaesar. That’s of course the minimal precondition and as far as I can see, the mods does that. It’s simple and should work out of the box.

Btw. I was a little bit surprised by the number of mods around this subject. That’s a clear sign that there is a demand for this.

Just a few days ago I posted a command to remove decoratives from concrete in already existing worlds. :lol:

But this won't ever be a vanilla "setting". Each tile type has a seperate deco-removal probability. And vanilla doesn't even have "Startup" type settings like mods do. It's also not good game-play to just make it a setting. Imho if it ever happens it will be a capsule or robot based solution, or a permanent change.

The original post made me think that it would be a setting that adjusts the percentage of decoratives removed. It couldn’t be a setting like the other settings because it would have to be the same for all other players on a server (making it good as a mod.)

How about just changing it to a straight solid, 100%. Realistically, when pouring concrete you cover everything. It doesn't make sense for there to be anything left. Yeah, life can grow after, but again, it's just annoying and ruins aesthetics.

Mods disable achievements, which is my main complaint.

Won't this disable achievements?

Commands completely disable achievements.

Mods don’t disable achievements, but they switch to a separate modded achievement list and prevent steam from saving them.

Literally disabling achievements for steam users.

You still get the achievement in the game, steam just won’t display that you did.
