Latest file for v1.19.4: 1-click install

[Discord] [Patreon][Buy Me A Coffee][Ko-fi]

A container that decomposes food extremely fast.

Configuration file is located in VintagestoryData/ModConfig, it is appeared after loading any world.

The food perish speed is 500x

Any chance on having an option for this to be affected by the temperature like with perish speed in other containers?

Great mod btw, couldn't imagine playing without it.

Just some warnings from the console 

17.9.2023 16:45:15 [Warning] Did not find required shape composter:shapes/block/composter-0.json anywhere. (defined in Inventory shape for block composter:composter-north)

Bumber Done

💬 Bumber, Sep 8th 2023 at 12:36 AM

Can we get a config file? I like to reduce the decay rate to a more reasonable one, and modifying files inside the .zip is less user friendly (and needs to be redone if the mod updates.)

Shion Fixed, fruit mashes now rot properly

💬 Mohandar, Jul 4th 2023 at 9:44 PM

Hey DanaCraluminum, do you mind to add more plants as a source material for compost?
Think for example about those fern, flowers and stuff you find in the world which have no much useful use.
It would be great to be able to use them as biomass instead of your precious food 😁

💬 Shion, May 29th 2023 at 11:55 PM

@noellelavenza Does it mean that replacing spoilSpeedMulByFoodCat {} in assets\composter\blocktypes\composter.json with what you showed should fix the spoilage timer for everything?

Neither transitionSpeedMulByType nor transitionSpeedMul worked.

💬 noellelavenza, May 16th 2023 at 5:53 PM

In 1.18 you should just be able to use this:

    "transitionSpeedMulByType": {
      "*": { "perish": 10 }

instead of all the spoilSpeedMulByFoodCat stuff you currently do. It will also fix the issue with things like raw meat or flour not perishing faster in the composter.

💬 DanaCraluminumAuthor, May 5th 2023 at 9:05 AM

Shion It is base game to blame

💬 Shion, May 5th 2023 at 8:51 AM

How does it work exactly? Mashes now show the same "fresh for" time no matter when inside or outside the composter.

💬 NerdScurvy, Apr 7th 2023 at 12:54 AM

CarryOn v1.0.0-rc.1 allows the composter to be carried.

💬 Shion, Dec 22nd 2022 at 5:07 AM

Any chance for compatibility with Carry On mod?

And a fix for the mash? For some reason it gets more fresh-time while in composter.

💬 Glennui, Jul 2nd 2022 at 5:41 AM

I love the idea of this but I've had mixed experience so far. It seems to work reliably for veggies, grains, and berries, but has a preserving effect on meat and meals. It is very handy on the items it works for and the composter itself looks nice.

💬 Broken, Jun 13th 2022 at 4:49 PM

I got this mod due to the fact I tend to get a crazy amount of stuff to just toss away and rot has it own uses but since I got it, It has not worked. Says 4x rot speeds but it rots slower than my xskills inventory.

hey if you need French translation contact me

💬 Lumber, Feb 27th 2022 at 3:09 AM

Just started using the composter, and I'm getting a x0.73 rate of rotting. It's outside. That's slower than what I get with food in my inventory. What should the rate be?

💬 Chrysander, Feb 6th 2022 at 11:55 AM

Thank you for the lightning-fast fix! 💯

💬 Chrysander, Feb 6th 2022 at 11:18 AM

Very nice! But seems like the oak variant can't be crafted.
