Vanilla Nutrient Paste Expanded is a small mod created to showcase what the new Pipe network code is capable of in Vanilla Expanded framework. It adds a rather simple chain, unlocked with Nutrient Paste research project, allowing the player to store nutrient paste in advance without the need for convoluted nutrient paste dispensers and hoppers. Players will now pipe nutrient paste directly from paste grinders into large storage vats. This can be connected to special output valves which serve prisoners and colonists with a not-so-tasty disgusting-looking stew.
Vanilla Nutrient Paste Expanded Mod features
The introduction of nutrient paste dripper will allow you to automatically feed bed-bound colonists or prisoners. Truly the stuff of nightmares.
Nutrient paste pipes can now be connected to any structure requiring nutrients, such as the Growth Vat, and will automatically supply it with required fuel.
We are not removing the current nutrient paste dispenser or changing how it works – well, maybe a little change, but other than that this mod serves as new content, not changes to existing content.
The content of this mod can be seen below.
A: Can I add it mid-playthrough to an existing save?
A: Yes, definitely.
Q: Does this work with Combat Extended?
Q: What happens if the power is cut from the vats?
A: The content will begin spoiling rapidly, until power returns.
Q: Can I prevent the content from spoiling?
A: Yes, simply keep your vats in a refrigerated room.
Q: Can I use the nutrient paste pipes to provide nutrience for buildings that require it? Such as the Growth vat?
A: You absolutely can!
Q: What happens if I put meat/human meat into the grinders?
A: It will contaminate the entire supply – so if your colony is vegetarian and some meat makes it way into the supply, all nutrient paste meals will contain meat. Fear not, you can cleanse the system with one press of a button, discarding every meal inside!
