Do NOT, however, when mixing melee and ranged, give one of the ranged pawns a grenade launcher. And that's why I still save scum.

There needs to be a relationship penalty for being killed by someone now that resurrection serums are a thing.

One of my better pawns has died three times from missed grenade launcher shots and it hasn't affected his relationship with the launcher pawn in the slightest. You'd think he'd be at least a little bit upset.

Thanks for your replies. I want to play "Old Rimworld" as in 1.0 and before, where my mods like Religion, Androids, Prepare Carefully, Snap Out! and Pick up and Haul work, but when I run the 1.0 beta (on which these used to work!?) it crashes.

IIRC Steam supports older versions of games via the Beta tab, but mods aren't version controlled in any way - if the latest version of a mod uses some feature or function call from 1.1 that wasn't available in 1.0, then the mod won't work in 1.0.

Some modders leave up older versions of mods that you can hunt down, sometimes even in the steam workshop as a separately-listed item, but ymmv

Um all of those mods have a working 1.1 version? Heck, I use like three quarters of them in my Royalty game with no issue...

If they aren't working and you're running an old version, that's likely because they updated. If they aren't working and you're running a new version, that's likely because they forked a new version and left the old version up for people running old versions of the game. The workshop page probably has a link or there may be a new version updated by someone else if you search.

One of the additions in 1.1 was the ability to include multiple versions of a mod in one package, so many 1.1 mods will also include 1.0 versions.

PEANUT BUTTER IS NOT MY FATHER

I think my favorite thing about Rimworld is when your pet gets a minor scratch from killing an ostrich and then proceeds to bleed profusely on literally everything within a square mile for 18 hours straight while you are completely incapable of stopping it and just follow behind it cleaning it up until it's minor scratch turns into severely bleeding out and finally it collapses allowing your AI to actually tend to it so it stops bleeding on everything and also doesn't die.

Can someone please tell me the presumably easy way to avoid this absolute gently caress-you scenario?

Try scheduling your pet for an operation (something harmless like anesthetic) so it returns to its bed, then pause, cancel the operation, and manually set a colonist to treating it.

I'm running a lot of mods, and always have, so I'm not sure of the universal applicability of this, but I think if you have a sleeping spot assigned to that animal, it will go there when it is injured

The Animals Logic mod lets you go one step further and designate animal beds as medical beds, so you can put a designated animal bed in your hospital (where tending is less likely to infect and surgery more likely to succeed)

It's helpful to have a designated animal sleeping area to help with food distribution too, so they eat kibble instead of something else

E.g. Create a room, put sleeping spots for your animals in there, put a stockpile zone that only accepts Kibble with Critical priority by the door

Do they still only do direct line proximity to food such that if the fridge is on the other side of their wall there’s a chance your kibble zone is “too far” and they sprint down hallways to eat fridge food?

I don't know but kibble doesn't need refrigeration so it can be literally next to their beds, which is neat

These high-G injections have some serious side effects after pulling so many jumps.



Or zone your base so the cooked meals, raw meat, etc. are out of bounds for animals. And keep a deep freezer with post-autopsy raider corpses in bounds for animals to eat up before kibble. (We all commit atrocities in our own ways.)

Haven't tried it but I think you could theoretically sorta achieve this using Stockpile Ranking to create a feeding-zone that preferentially stores certain type(s) of food, and Quantum Storage to pull from storage that animals can't access, so it doesn't require a bunch of labor/clicking/effort for continuously reorganizing kibble/hay/corpse/paste piles based on available resources.

Opposite of brain good, obviously

But yeah, consciousness penalty, same as androids. Though personally I would have thought induced current in your brain meats would be more unpleasant than just making you a bit groggy.

Presumably the tech is advanced enough that you get a sort of "safe mode" trigger that shuts down the implant the same way that EMP grenades don't cause permanent damage to mechanical targets. Also presumably the shock of having part of your brain disconnected and thus no longer having access to those functions makes it harder to get things done since you now have to reroute that through normal brain tissue that hasn't been tasked with taking the full load for a while.

Can also think of it as the difference of being used to being able to call up an overlay with wind conditions, local terrain, project movements, etc. when lining up a shot, and then suddenly having to go without all of the extra augmented reality data that your implants were feeding you. The reflexes might be fine, but it's like an amputee trying to use their missing arm to catch a ball.

Animu animal girl mod or not, the ratkin mod is surprisingly... good? They're arguably underpowered (being small, weak, having limited carrying capacity, etc) but can make equipment to compensate for it, and while it adds some tech and weapon options it's mostly early/mid-tier stuff. Also, the giant hamsters.

Katt posted:

I think they're supposed to be just alien-like and not cat. Looking at it they're more like lizards with antennae or something, but almost all the descriptions in it are still in Korean so it's hard to tell.

I guess I should get around to trying out the Ratkin mod, though I'd have used capybaras as mounts myself

edit: I was playing around with creating a Ratkin starting group and I noticed that they have a small chance of being male, which I wasn't sure was a bug or not since the males didn't seem any different from the females.

I looked in the files and saw they have a 10% chance of being male, with their own name list, but many of their names wouldn't be out of place on the female list. Also they use the same art as far as I can tell.

Animals will eat the first "edible" nearby thing when they are hungry, don't keep your beer, lucerfum, other drugs, and valuable food anywhere near they travel if you don't want them to eat it, which is why for most of my colonies I don't have animals.

Just create an area covering your crops and other areas you don't want them, invert it and apply to your animals? Seems to work fine for me and they go forage everywhere else.
