Author of the Artful Robots Patch: Patient Someone

Gone are the days where your builder bots destroy furniture in a fit of binary rage upon realization that they do not have a name!

The Artful Robots Mod fixes issues with unnamed pawns creating art, especially on furniture items.

When a pawn (such as a robot) creates an item which contains art (such as a dining chair) the base game passes through a function which attempts to apply logic to the pawn’s name. This patch has tweaked that function slightly so that if the Pawn’s name is null (I mean come on, even my roomba is named “Gadget”, you heartless savages!), it stops the function without causing an Object reference error.

If you’ve experienced an object reference error resulting in furniture being destroyed and resources lost after a Builder Bot has completed his job, this patch is for you!

Artful Robots Mod features

  • Named Pawns will still create art with a proper Author.
  • Unnamed pawns such as Robots (or animals, if such a mod is created) will create art with the Author set to “Unknown”.
  • MiscRobots ++ compatibility patches
