Steam Front Loader for ECO

Released (updated ago). Ranked 3 of 159 with 194 (2 today) downloads

Published by M3OWZ (mod ID: 1010628)


Adds an earlier tier tractor for picking up diggable items only. Based off the skidsteer but can only hold 25% as much. Available at Mechanics 2 and costs a bit more than a steam tractor.
The tractor will break rocks but will not pick them up.

Made by Request.

Personally id like it to do the opposite, diggable and loose stone but no mining with it. that way you could mine by hand and pick it all up with the loader. ya know, like real life. cant mine with a loader.

Did a bunch of balancing work in comparison to the Skid Steer. Made the following changes and it seems to be a good balance as a Vanilla Game (mostly) addition.

* Reduced vehicle speed to that of a Powered Cart
* Reduced Total Slots from 5 to 3
* Reduced the stack size limits from 20 to 10.
* Have Weight at 750000 - pretty much limiting the liftable amounts by stack sizes as opposed to carry weight, was easier to try to get a feel for balancing the capabilities of the vehicle.
* Added 12 Steel Rivits - pushing the machine out a little further in the path to acquire it via any given playthrough.
* Upped mechanics skill to level 5. - Also pushing it out a little bit further in the playthrough.
* Allowed Stone/Ore carrying, but limited to the same 3 slots and 10 stack size.

This has made a huge difference in keeping the Skid Steer viable and desirable. In glass production due to sand requirements. And simplified brick and cement production, while maintaining a curve of difficulty to get the initial Tier 2 buildings in place to build this machine via Mechanics.
