Originally created by Snufkin, Paintings Posters contained twenty paintings and twenty posters that could be found across the game at random. Now, I’ve reworked the mod, with his permission, to add a lot more content in Ztensity’s Paintings & Posters!
Paintings & Posters Contains the Following Additions:
There are now nine separate recipes that can be crafted at the workbench, which allow players to make all paintings and posters to put them for display.
In order to craft each recipe, however, players must first find seven separate books from the newly added “Paintings & Posters” collection either out and about or by buying them from a trader. With each book read, a different set of paintings or posters will be unlocked for crafting purposes. Once all seven books are read, the player will unlock paintings or posters from the last book and a secret set of paintings along with it.
There are a total of ten new paintings added by this mod in addition to Snufkin’s previously designed paintings and posters. While seven of the new paintings can be crafted once unlocked, three more rare paintings can only be bought from a trader.
Every painting and poster have been re-designed for consistency, descriptions have been added for learning purposes, aesthetics and a bit of realism, and icons have been tweaked for further immersion.
Paintings & Posters is a modlet that should be compatible with A20. There are no specific requirements to implement this mod into a game-save.
There is an optional modlet that adjusts an icon for better immersion alongside Sirillion’s UI overhaul series, SMX. If you are a player who is using Sirillion’s SMX, make sure to get that optional file here: SMX Paintings & Posters Patch
This modlet is likely incompatible out the gate with select overhauls that adjusts skill books, the perk system or elements of the UI. However, I am open to designing a compatibility fix, as it should be relatively easy to implement for this mod.
Over time, I may expand on this modlet to add new paintings, new recipes, new unlockable features and so on. Specifically, for instance, I may work on fun updates for holidays like Halloween.
ALPHA 20.3 UPDATE
I have updated all files to make sure it’s compatible with A20.3 and reflects that the mod up to date.
PAINTING LIGHT ADDITION
In update 1.1.0, I have added a light to place above paintings and posters for immersive and aesthetic purposes. This is an adjusted light, which originally comes from Unnecessarily Beautiful But Immersive. I’ve thinned it out to fit the paintings a little cleaner and titled it “Painting Light.”
A portion of assets and coding was originally designed by Snufkin. However, with his permission I have re-designed the modlet with a lot more content. Snufkin’s assets included 20 paintings and 20 posters from UNITY3D bundles, 40 icons and two XML files as a starting point (blocks.xml and blockplaceholders.xml).
Credit is also due to the following artists for using art they designed as pictures for the new paintings:
- Al Molina’s “Pennywise“
- Omenomicon’s “Valek“
- Peter Van Valkenburgh’s Parallax Version of “The Great Wave“
- Hinoteya’s “Slenderman“
- Jane’s “Ghosted“
- Caleb Hull’s “Grudge“
- Carson’s “Crooked Man“
- Bill $Aber’s “Album Artwork“
The forum topic of the mod is here.

I LOVE this mod. Not only because it means I can decorate my base like an art gallery, but also because it changes up a lot of the boring portraits you see in every poi (and yes I occasionally hesitate before smashing them lol). Can’t wait for new additions. Might I request The Starry Night and Starry Night Over the Rhone by Van Gogh? And maybe some Monet or Pollock? 🙂
love this concept, is there any way to add custom images to the paintings? I Have this idea for making my wife a Bob Ross exhibit and have all the paintings i want to use but not sure how to add custom jpegs to the paintings or make them from scratch like this somewhat?? Any suggestions?
