[DISCONTINUED] Pawns Paint! [A17 – B18 in description]

MOD Desc
Due to the stress of school and lack of time, I’ve decided to not update it any more. This does NOT necessarily mean the death of this mod, I’m looking for a new good owner (preferably one with good experience when it comes to modding) to update it and improve it! (just leave a comment and add me)
Let your colonists paint!
Paintings give beauty and lets pawns look at them for joy.

This mod lets your colonists build an easel and make paintings from cloth and wood.
Colonists paint whatever they feel like, and sometimes it’s some weird *#@!.

The paintings are unfortunately not rotatable, which is a shame. I’ve tried and tried to make it work but having both random textures and make it rotatable doesn’t seem possible.

Currently on version Beta 18!! —

The idea is that every painting is randomized from a folder full of paintings.
If you have any ideas for paintings or balancing suggestions, please let me know.

  • It’s about time there was a painting mod. I hope someone also does one on book writing or something. I mean from all of the bandit and mechanoid raids, the crazy stuff that happens in the world and between your colonists, you’d think someone would compile all of that into some kind of story. Eh. Regardless. Great job guy!
  • I’ve updated your mod to b18 and haven’t shared it yet. I didn’t test much but seems like it’s working fine. No errors on my end. Add me on steam if you want. I can upload it myself or send it to you so you can upload the updated version under your account. Whatever you wanna do 🙂
  • I don’t want to be demanding or anything, but have you seen the mod ‘Change Dresser’ it adds a mirror that is hung on the wall, I think it would be nice if there was an option to hang the paintings on the wall in a similar manner. Without the finished paintings being placed on an easel.
  • Nice concept 🙂 Any plans to enhance the mod further, maybe being able to use rare materials (gold,jade etc) for the frame, and perhaps further along, rarer mats for canvas (synthread, hyperweave) so we can up the beauty/value factor to make it a more viable option to just sculptures everywhere?
  • question:should it not be a thing to hang them up on the wall?I know it’s posiable since I have a mod that adds mirrors that you hang up on the wall.The only thing I can think of with the paintings since they are on a rack is to open an art museum (witch is not a bad idea..).It would really help if I could just hang them on the wall, be a hole lot more easy to make small rooms more pretty
  • So a while back, I made a variation of this mod for my own personal use (updated it for B18, fixed a couple of errors, and changed the paintings to be actual public domain paintings). Since no one has taken over this mod yet, I was wondering if it would be okay to upload my version to the workshop. All credit would go to you of course.
