Many things can only be learnt from blueprints, which can be bought or looted from locations where the buildings are found. If you really dislike this idea, or have already visited the location of a blueprint you wanted, download "No Blueprints Required" from the optional files section. 

If you're having trouble finding a blueprint this list should help. 


  • Slopeless must be above Forgotten Buildings. It can be disabled if you aren't using the Single Mode gates. Incorrect load order will make it impossible to place some buildings.
  • Compressed Textures Project / Detailed Textures Pack / Enhanced_Textures / Texture Options must be above Forgotten Buildings. Texture mods loaded after Forgotten Buildings will cause some buildings to appear much brighter than they should be. Smaller versions of the Forgotten Buildings texture files can be found in the optional files section.
  • Interior (and Exterior) Design should be above Forgotten buildings. Forgotten Buildings contains everything included in the Interior Design mod; however, several things built with that mod will disappear if it is removed.
  • more building should be above Forgotten Buildings. I don't recommend using them both at the same time, but the two mods are mostly compatible. To avoid duplicate items in the build menu, you might want to try Plant Trees, more building(natural trees only) or more building(Interior and Exterior only) instead of using the full mod.
  • Cuddling/Spooning must be below Forgotten Buildings. It cannot be used alongside Forgotten Buildings + Work Bench Variations Compatibility.
  • Work Bench Variations users might want to download Forgotten Buildings + Work Bench Variations Compatibility from the optional files section.
  • Project Genesis: World Overhaul includes Forgotten Buildings. This version must be disabled while using Project Genesis.
