Vanilla Expanded Framework


1.2.0 (26/08/2020): Renamed the mod to Vanilla Expanded Framework – it is now a framework for all the bigger Vanilla Expanded releases and as such will be required to play other mods. Revamped the shield code to remove any problems with performance. Lots of optimizations.

Vanilla Expanded Framework incorporates a multitude of functionalities for different mods in order for us to boost performance by not duplicating code across several mods. Examples of shared functionality include custom base generation code with an amazing building export tool, customisable sieges, faction-based pack animal textures, faction based apparel colouring system, Orion’s Faction Discovery revamped and improved, Item processor code, shields, and many, many others.

If you see a mod with a following banner in the description:

That means it requires this framework.

Orion’s Faction Discovery?

Yes! We have negotiated a deal with Orion and included his Faction Discovery mod within Vanilla Expanded Framework. Now, if you decide to add a faction to an existing playthrough, upon loading up the save you will have an option to spawn it’s settlements and define how many of them you would like to spawn, as well as how far away from the player.

Q: Is this mod necessary to run other Vanilla Expanded mods?
A: Yes. This mod contains all the code used with the other mods that are marked as requiring this framework. Running those mods without this framework will not allow you to play them.

Q: Which position in the mod loader should this mod take?
A: This mod should be loaded BEFORE other mods, as close to Core as possible.

Q: Is this mod compatible with other mods?
A: Yes, it’s a framework, and it is compatible with every other mod. For known issues please see the known issues section of this mod description before commenting.

Q: Can this mod’s functionality be used in other mods?
A: Yes, and we are working hard on making a solid documentation. You are allowed to make your own mods based on this framework as long as you mark this framework as a required item.

Q: Can I take your code and put it in my mod?
A: No. The reason we made this framework is to avoid just that: if we were to use the same code in two different mods, it would cause performance issues that would cascade into errors.

Q: Is this mod compatible with Faction Control or Empire mod?
A: We made sure it is!

Q: Compatible with Combat Extended?
A: Yes.

Q: What does this mod actually do?
A: If you’re not running any other Vanilla Expanded mods, this mod serves as Faction Discovery mod as explained above.

We are currently not tracking any issues. If any errors occur, please post them in the comment section, preferably with a hugslib github link.
