Title: [MOD] Streamlined Armor Manufacturing L1 Version 1
Post by: ivandogovich on January 07, 2017, 09:19:33 pm
Version 1 Updated for PirateZ L1: Added Zortium Suit (New in L1)

Being inspired by Meridian's personal mod to streamline manufacturing of Annihilator Armor, I decided this concept was something I couldn't live without.

Designed for convenience, this mod allows alternate manufacturing recipes of all armors that require a lower armor type in one of its ingredients.
All new projects are marked with an asterisk "*" and use raw parts like personal & power armor parts, damaged grav units, synth muscle mesh, etc.


(https://i.imgur.com/0yeNatv.png)

34 armors are included.


Version L1 v1.  Tested, no crashes.

Needs OXCE 6.4: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php/topic,5258.0.html  (6.4.2 is included in PirateZ L1 build)

Enjoy

What counts as "raw parts"?

Kustom Power Armor is buyable - so is that a raw part? Or does it use power armor parts? Or unplugged power armor?

For drugs, does it just use the drugs directly? Or does it use medical supplies and crack? Or does it use chemicals, and assume that you'll make your own drugs?

For armors based on the tactical vest, is the tactical vest itself a raw part? Or does it use armor parts, and assume you'll build the tactical vest?

Could we have more information on how it actually works?
Title: Re: [MOD] Streamlined Armor Manufacturing
Post by: ivandogovich on January 08, 2017, 07:06:22 am
Raw parts are considered things you can pick up on the battle field:
- Personal Armor Parts
- Power Armor Parts
- Rare Earth Elements
- Combat Drugs
etc.

No, Tac Vests, Buyable Armors, etc, are not used in these recipes, only their components are.  The goal is to make it easier to assemble the end product from a pile of simple resources and not have to deal with intermediary steps. 

Yes, some of these simple resources are manufacturable (Combat Drugs, Rare Earth Elements, etc.), but I don't base the recipes on these processes, only the "battle field drops."

Some armor lines build on each other.  (Tac Vest> Tac Armor> Heavy Suit> Defender> Guardian, etc.).  There could be many recipes for Defender based on the different configurations of subordinate armors.  I have chosen to keep it simple by using the basic ingredients.

For those with existing armors that need upgrades, I recommend Dioxine's traditional recipe.  The times for these late stage armors is compounded from earlier versions, so it may be faster to buy earlier components from the black market, but it won't be cheaper (not figuring runt costs).  I envision these streamlined recipes most useful in late game expansions of the fighting forces, and the need for new high end armor.  I'd be interested to hear from anyone who uses this mod, when they use it and if they find it useful or not.

Idea is great, maintenance is a PITA.

If there would be interest, I can make these duplicates automatically via user option, or new armor flag or something of the kind.

Yup.  If you can code it, go for it.  I agree maintenance as new armors are added or Dioxine tweaks their recipes will be a pain.  I can't code it, but I can do yaml, so I did what I could.

As a player, I think it's a great idea. It's pretty obvious why.

As a modder, I also think it's a great idea. It removes another limitation.

Post by: legionof1 on January 10, 2017, 08:52:22 pm
Seems good so far in my use. Thou i would prefer if the revenat and brute armor used the much more common/buyable/producible chemicals and crack then combat drugs. Particularly in light that drugs are a consumable and it is conceivable to either disrupt production or field use in large batch cases.
Title: [MOD] Streamlined Armor Manufacturing: Updated for 99G

Changes in 99G required updating the mod from sectoid corpses to academy corpses.  New zip in first post.
Title: Re: [MOD] Streamlined Armor Manufacturing
Post by: arbee81 on May 13, 2017, 06:59:18 pm
I've been using it and love it. I'll usually check if I have what I need for the traditional recipe first to use up outdated armor, but once that's gone and I need more i find it so much easier to use the streamlined versions. I would frequently run into a problem where I wanted a certain armor, needed an earlier armor, would start manufacturing it, then get distracted and not build the final armor for (sometimes) months. This mod may literally save some of my bases (it was mostly armor for bases that I would forget about)

Updated to 99h2. 
Added Fairy and Jugulator.  Removed Crusader.
Updated list order to match Dioxine's.
4 armors updated (Loader, Revenant, Assault, and Kustom Power Armor).

I appreciate all the interest in this mod.  :) The previous version had 80 downloads.  Thanks!

Nice mod, thanks for doing this.  I seem to find myself getting sidetracked by bad guys flying around and whatnot while trying to build all the various parts for the fancy armors, this helps big time.

Post by: UnholyAngel on January 02, 2018, 05:08:18 pm
I noticed some mistakes in the recipes for the streamlined Brute Amor and the Annihilator Suit both should need 9 Synthmuscle Mesh and the Annihilator also need 3 Maischen Motors.

Post by: ivandogovich on January 03, 2018, 03:42:26 pm

Edit Feb 13, 2018: 99i1.b Bugfix:

BBallin helped me by crafting a python script to build new armor recipes.  This helped me to
identify multiple discrepancies that had crept into the mod.

I have adjusted or updated recipes for Saviour, Fairy, Swiftsuil, Blitz, Assassin, Dragonfly, Stormy, Assault, Harbinger, Brute, Annihilator, Mesh-Refractor, Superhero, Loader, Sorceress, Furiousa, Bio, Pestulator, Doom 2, Shadow, and Assault Bike.

Good question, I checked it out.  Should be good to go.  Testudo is the only new armor and doesn't have anything too confusing in its naming.

The time and cost for the combined Meshrefractor Amor (STR_SMOKEY_MK2_ARMOR_M) are wrong (they don't include the time money cost of the preliminary steps).

it should be:
time: 880
cost: 19000

Post by: ivandogovich on May 21, 2018, 05:35:59 pm
thanks 21 UnholyAngel!!  :)  I have added that into the latest update which is compatible with 99J1.

ChangeLog:
99J1 Updated armors to include Glamour requirements for Saviour, Fairy, and Ghost.  Updated Moloch & Berserker for new requirements.  Updated time cost on Assault Bike, and also fixed time and cost for Smokey 2.

what is this concept of *streamlining ? :S
Title: Re: [MOD] Streamlined Armor Manufacturing 99J4
Post by: legionof1 on July 24, 2018, 09:10:25 pm
There are alot of outfits that require lower tech outfits as components. This mod bypasses the intermediate steps. The total cost in materials and worker hours is the same as if you did all the individual steps, but its a single manufacture project.

Considering some outfits have as many as 5 intermediate steps it saves alot of micro in the end game.

The streamlined versions are denoted as *(armor name)

Hello, i just have a short question. I have now updated mid-campaign to J6 and noticed that Harbinger doesn't need any power armor parts, which seems odd to me. Is this intended or is there something wrong in my savegame?
Title: Re: [MOD] Streamlined Armor Manufacturing 99J6
Post by: legionof1 on September 01, 2018, 05:44:21 am
intended, the main mod migrated a bunch of late game armor behind a new tech the lets you build power armor parts, as such to reduce micro alot of late game armor no longer requires them, but have much increased workshop project space.

so what's the point, you can build power armor parts... but no longer need them for power armor?

Post by: ivandogovich on September 01, 2018, 08:17:23 pm
Nope, you are correct.  I asked Dioxine about it, and it now requires a Power Armor Manufacturing Tech.  In his mind, this eliminated the need for power armor parts, so most of those armor recipes have removed that.

So, how will be end-games (power) armors wshould be manufactured? ?
withouth recipes, / without (power armors) PARTS? ?

eh, top-tier power armours would have be assembled, from parts, and by recipes ~ it just look and feel right, more "industrialish"

   Saviour outfit needed two Durathread
   Blitz time and cost tweaked
   Advanced Hover slight cost increase
   Storm Marine slightly faster
   Defender and Guardian slightly longer
   Assault Armor longer and more costly
   Advanced Power Armor much longer & slightly cheaper
   Brute less Combat Drugs
   Annihilator slightly cheaper in time, money and ingredients
   Testudo more expensive in time and cost
   Biosuit needs a Red Gem
   Pestulator slightly cheaper
   Shadow Lokk needed another Chem

Reminds me the moment when I produced 300 or 400 power armor parts in J7, and then realised that the Harbinger no longer requires them. The prev experience - J5.
Subjectively, the moment when you get Jaggernaut armor technology is quite close to the Harbinger, just 8-12 (i guess?) hours of the gameplay, making Juggernaut's potential almost undisclosed in the battles. That's sad.

The moment of aquiring Power Armor technology is a sacred moment in the gameplay experience. Juggernaut->Harbinger gap might have been way wider. And Harbinger PA might have been a way costier. It's easy to equip a whole rota (120-150 ppl) even in the Ironman&Hard mode.

Pretty certain it doesn't need to be atm. Only time update is really needed is if the components(or strings names) to the included armors change. Or something new with more then one intermediate armor stage is added. That hasn't happened in awhile now. Mostly early game weapons, auxiliary units, or enemy additions lately.

I had a problem with this.  The game kept crashing on loading with a warning about 'ss_strongman_armour not found' (or something similar, I can't remember exactly.  A solution I found was to go into the mod's rul file and delete the reference to strongman armour and now it works fine.  Must be a k2/k3 difference as I have k2 and have never seen strongman armour.

Perfect!  Thanks for the feedback!  I've updated the mod commenting out Strongman Armor.  Should be K2 compatible now.  Version 1.1a

Further bugfixes down the thread.  Look for version 1.1b in the thread or the opening post.

Bug/Questionable design deicison: The Guardian quick recipe includes 2 tactical armors. *Recipes should be raw resources only, except for tac vests since they can be purchased at Krazy Hanna level

Ok!  Thanks!  Looks like these only breakdown the first level.... so when Guardian wants a Defender, and a Heavy Suit, I set it to break each down.  But Heavy suit wants to Tactical Armors, and I didn't break these down too.  Didn't realize that these nested items would need to be defined explicitly too.  Thanks for the Notice!

Ok, trying again.

This time, I've defined all the sub recipes, so we shouldn't see thinks like Needs 2 Tactical Armor for Guaridian, or Metal armor for Moloch Armor.  Thanks for all the bug reports!

Dioxine's thrown you a curveball with his new L1 update just a day after you updated your mod!  The strongman armour is in this version.

Heh! Perfect!  I've updated the mod for L1 (added Zortium Suit) and attached it to the opening post.  I even tested it, no crashes on loading.
