Common Sense
It's something so simple, but PZ lacks it sometimes.
This mod solves this issue by adding many Quality of Life improvements to the game.
I plan to continuously update this mod, adding more and more common sense to the game over time.

Full change list:

  • Crowbars can pry open doors, windows, vehicles, etc.
  • Sacks can be emptied at will.
  • Spears can be crafted with mops, brooms, etc.
  • Canned food can be opened with knives, screwdrivers, spoons, etc.
  • Pie slices now have a happiness bonus of 5.
  • Sheets can be crafted.
  • Flashlight can be attached to your belt.
  • Added and improved various recipes.
  • Certain items can be repaired


Does it work in Multiplayer?
Of course it does!

Does it work on existing saves?

Is the mod compatible with [...]?
This mod shouldn't have any incompatibility with other mods, but if it does, let me know.

Can I pry windows open?
No. As far as I know, this is handled internally by the game and cannot be touched by mod code.
