Hi, I am looking for ideas and suggestions about decorations on a prefab that i am currently working on.

The project is a prefab of a power plant that i am eventually going to send to the Starvation Mod Team to see if they want to use instead of their current prefab model for the power plant in their mod.

to give a little background info about the project, it started about 5 days ago and it came from me being really bummed out by seeing the power plant in the starvation mod being so blocky and so out of place looking.

for those who does now know the layout of the power plant in starvation mod let me explain a little more, the current prefab that is being used for the powerplant is a compound made up of 6-7 rooms, its one big square with three empty concrete rooms (away from the main building) and one main building.

inside the main building is a the rest of the rooms laid out in 3-4 layers but they are basic almost 98% empty rooms (there are a few lockers and the custom powerplant items from starvation mod).



i then started making the layout for the new prefab, i wanted it big to fit in well with the custom cooling towers that starvation mod implements in their mod but i also wanted all the rooms to have meaning so that it would not feel to big and clunky, and im at this point about 50% done, ive done all the building, seperated the rooms, thought of what to go where to make sure not to make to many unused rooms.




Here is what i have made so far
MUTE Video!!! (sound got messed up)

So now that u see what i have to work with, i would like to ask you all to come with suggestions on how to improve decorations to make it more suitable as a prefab and or ideas on what to add if anything would improve the building by being added.


I would also like to ask anyone who knows how to use the pille prefab editor to maybe give me some small hints on setting stuff like sleepers volume - zombie spawn points - better integration for random gen (by this i mean that i can remove all stone blocks surrounding the prefab so that when put into the random gen it will spawn in any biome without changing the biome ground to the stone it is currently in)

I still need to add a few small buildings aroudn the main one and also the custom cooling towers that is part of the power plant.

the main rooms i am asking about deco help for is the 4 empty rooms closest to the room with the two water basins, the nack room is going to be sort of warehouse with storage, and i am goin do do a little surprice for the room in where the rad boss that normally spawns in the powerplant. but will update with progress as i go :)

More power plant types are always welcome. However I fairly doubt the starvation team will replace the power plant they have in their mod as it was from the awesome late PACCO R.I.P.

They may add it to their mod but yeh prolly won't replace it. But man it is looking great. I suggest the tower stacks you use the burning barrels to give the effect of it burning.

I am also presuming you will require sdx for this seeing as there are fish tanks etc in the prefab.

ah i did not now that it was pacco who made that prefab :O then defo not take it out or replace, but yea they may add it if they like it in the end.

it will require having starvation mod installed, seing that it is my own personal update for my single player game that i made this for, but with the intent to send it to the starvation team in the end so they can use it if they like it :)

can u explain a bit more what u mean with the burning barrels :D im not sure i fully understand :)


also did a small update in the water basin room, changed the texture of the basins because the stainless steel was to bright.

also quick question, should i post a video of the surprice room where i am trying to make the "boss" spawn :P or should i keep it a secret and just hope people will find it them self if the starvation team decides to use the prefab? :)

If you click the dev icon in the creative menu type in barrel you will see burrning barrels. They give of smoke. If you have enough around your chimney stacks it will look like the smoke stacks are operating lol

ah now i get it :P but the chimney (ingame cooling tower) is part of the starvation mod and has allready got the smoke in the model itself :D

yea i did think about making it pure vanilla, but there are to many items from the starvation mod that just makes the build so much more meaningfull
