Free Foundations - Free Soil - Higher Build Range


With this Mod, you do not need to have any Soil(optional) or Foundations(optional) to actually build foundations. However, you need to have the Foundations unlocked already. Also optional, Higher Build Range. On top of that, the Reform-Size increases from 10x10 to 30x30.

Optionally you can disable Higher Buildrange functionality & you can also set the buildrange yourself. The default value of 250 is the maximum already though.

Checkout the config of this mod! Also make sure to use GodMode-Build-Mode (in the Game settings)

Configurable Settings

Setting Possible Values Default Description Vanilla-Value
Enable Free Foundations True/False True If enabled, you do not need Foundations to build them. False
Enable Free Soil True/False True If enabled, you do not need Soil to build Foundations. False

Enable Higher Buildrange True/False True Enables/Disabled Higher Build-Range modification. None

You may notice weird behavior of building when using multiple mods altering the DetermineBuildPreviews Method in Foundation Building Mode.
