    Trading Outpost - No Trader Protect Required!

    This is a prefab of a working Trading Post [Trader Joel].
    It's for those wanting to insert a Trader but not have to mess with "Trader Area Protect".





    It's got some decorative stuff as well, but mostly it's functional.

    It works because of the 1/8th blocks. The Zeds show up in droves and they can't hit it.



    I am currently on Day 89 and this prefab is pretty much in pristine condition.

    >>IMPORTANT<<

    - It's 34x70 [the longer length being North-South]
    Keep that in mind when placing.

    - It faces North. For some reason the game sometimes faces Spawned-in Traders North for no good reason.
    This prefab takes that into account.
    Keep that in mind when placing, also.

    Download it Here ---> https://www.dropbox.com/s/5chra8hp74...Trade.rar?dl=0


    Enjoy!

    ** PS: Yes I know my picture cropping sucks in this post but I have to walk my dog and wanted to get this out quick.
    Gimme a break! >.<

    If you download this, please post here.

    I welcome your input.

    That's how I know whether to fix things.

    Cheers,

      Do you like to decorate? I hate it... Least favorite thing to do. Hell, my oil rig is bare.

      Anyway, is the ramp thing the only way in?

        Yeah you can drive your bike right up.
        [If you want to tour the interior, use the catwalk and go in through the back.
        The front door is locked.]

        The ramp is basically the same design I use for my base.
        Works great as a shooting platform and an entrance.

        And yes, I love decorating things. I find adding all the little details makes a build much more enjoyable.

        That's not for everyone, as you stated.

            Yeah post a DL link and I'll check out your Rig.

            I suppose lots of machinery and workstations.... some washrooms.... lunch room.. change room... telecoms....barracks...

            Yeah I can see it in my head already.

                Not at all. This thread wasn't getting any attention so it helps.

                Okay so if I decorate the desert one, will you be able to port it over to the lake?
                Or would having the lake one decorated be easier?

                  Either is fine. Now that I can open two instances, copy and pasting is super easy.

                    Alright. I was just worried that pasting onto the water one might cause water glitches.

                    Wait what? Two instances? How does that work?

                      Click Prefab twice. It'll open up two windows.

                        Assuming youtube doesn't crash while uploading, here's a quick demo of running two instances.

                          Oh that is so cool. I never knew it could do that.

                          I am going to have a really fun weekend making prefabs!

                          I'll decorate your Rig Friday night first thing.
                          Have so much work to do this week I'm up to my eyeballs in it. [Yes I know I should be working, not in forums.]

                          That's a really cool trick. Didn't even know about the Alt+left click thing.
                          Sometimes you can't just copy multiple layers. It's helpful to have a marker.

                          Thanks.

                            Okay it's done.

                            Here's the Link

                            https://www.dropbox.com/s/1rxnbqyvrs...rated.rar?dl=0

                            Couple notes:

                            - There's no staircase from bottom floor to second.

                            - You'll notice I turned off a lot of lights. [Like... a lot].
                            Adds to the ambience [plus too many lights lags the crap out of many computers.]
                            Your streetlights are all still on. Maybe turn a few off? Up to you.

                            - The decals on the catwalks don't show up. It's one of the drawbacks of using large numbers of them.
                            I think it's fine, but you can decide.

                            - It's moderate loot. If you want sparse or heavy loot it's going to need adjusting.

                            Your Rig now includes:
                            - Quartermaster's Room + Storage
                            - Small Workshop
                            - Several Washrooms.
                            - Maintenance Room
                            - More Storage.
                            - Lots of dead bodies [mostly decals, not loot.... don't want to overloot, ruins the prefab]
                            - Kitchen with Dishpit.
                            - Cafeteria.
                            - Barracks.
                            - Small Rec room.
                            - Showers.
                            - Lockers/Storage.
                            - Updated Control Room.
                            - Medic's Office.

                            Hope you like it.

                            Cheers,

                            ~ Lucky

                              Thanks, you work quick! I'll update the op and get you your props when my contractors leave...

                              ...I thought I could prefab all weekend and pretend they're not here, but I can't stop myself from overseeing them.
