    Question Looking for Prefabs...

    Howdy.

    I am looking for some prefabs for an Admin town I am building, maybe a Castle, a Maze, etc.
    is there a list of prefabs or do I just look around this forum?

    also do I add them using Coppis Mod or ? I am the server owner/Admin.

    thank you!

    Most prefabs are grabbed by mag for the compo pack, but otherwise yeh just scroll through the pages on this subthread looking for them. You won't find a lot, Prefabbing is a dying art. =(


    ...and the ones you do find are likely a14 or lower.

    New prefabbers.

    Tom has been redoing old ones, but there are very few people producing new ones. I had (checking) 37 people on my prefab server. I think it generated about 10 prefabs, if that?

    It's hibernating not dying.

    Do you track your downloads?

    Yes,

    ~ 130 downloads per month (prefab editor, mediafire mirror)
    ~ 250 downloads per month (updates for prefab editor, mediafire mirror)
    ~ 10 - 20 ??? downloads per month (unfinished skyscraper)

    Unfortunately, dropbox doesn't track the downloads automatically.

    Could be worse.

    What about historically?

    Yeh, I'm sure prefabbing will "come back" when the editor gets released and steam workshop is a thing, but those will all suck, because they won't have been built by people who worked hard on learning HOW to build them; they'll be built by... filthy casuals. Blech. =)

    so looking at the editor. is there a limit to the number of pixels that an image that is imported into a prefab can have? we had a mod on rust that allowed 32bit graphic images to be imported. seems like 8 bit only in 7DTD.

    I know I'm behind on the editors capabilities, but what image?

    I'm in the same boat because after over a year, magolis prefab pack... I've seen them all and want fresh content.

    My new goal is to build them myself. I have been building my own for ages, but I might as well build my own pack at this point.
