Welcome

Welcome to a kinder, gentler RimWorld. NOT!!!

The main idea of the Rimworld to overcome difficulties that you'll encounter when landing on the planet... The more problems you will encounter, the more interesting will be your story... You have a goal, a heavy goal - to survive. It make Rimworld worth replaying again and again... This Wiki is very much a work in Progress. If you feel you can, please update and expand.

General information

Gameplay Differences

Most new players will find themselves resolving chicken or egg conundrums as they work their way through bootstrapping a colony. But there are a few suprises as well...

  • Ranged Weapons Need Ammo (of the right caliber) - while the Weapons you landed with are fully loaded, don't count on finding any bullets where you go... until you can make them yourself. So maybe now's the time to craft a bow and arrow and brush up on some archery.
  • The Technology Tree has grown and deepened. There are now almost 200 technologies. Better hope one of your colonists is good with book learnin'
  • Plants Need Seeds - But crops are sustainable. When harvesting plants a reasonably good farmer will get back more seeds that what were originally planted.
  • Most resources now need at least one kind of processing before use
    • logs need to be turned into planks for most wooden floors and walls
    • Iron Ore needs to be turned into steel or cast-iron before use. This requires smelting in a Smelting Furnace - A fueled one of these requires coal or charcoal
    • Copper Ore must be refined into copper alloy
    • Quarries now exist

Prepare Carefully

  • One of the mods included in the revamp is EdB's Prepare Carefully. You might REALLY REALLY want to do that.
    • There's a LOT more researching and crafting than in the vanilla game.
      • You'd be well advised to have someone with the skills and passion for that.
      • Preferably NOT the same person.
    • Consider taking some planks along
      • The Research Bench requires 50 Planks, 2 mechanisms, and 5 components
    • Make sure that you have the proper ammo to reload any ranged weapons you have
    • Take seeds
      • Make sure you have potato seeds at a bare minimum. Corn is next soonest available.
      • Hold off on the more exotic seeds as you won't know how to plant the stuff anyway

Miscellaneous Discovered Knowledge

  • Upon crash-down, we only know how to plant potatoes. All other crops require research.
  • Strawberries requires Vegetable Research III.
  • Stone Arrows only require wood to make. Arrows can be crafted at a crafting spot (Same as bows)
  • In the current release fences don't seem to keep anything out. Both deer and tarantulas came though the fences like they're not even there. I suggest an unroofed log wall stockade.
  • There's a bit of a snafu with the tailoring workbench and the loom. They seem to have their names reversed.
  • Enriched Uranium U235 is very toxic. Even carrying it a short distance without protective equipment can cause permanent damage to a pawn's consciousness.
  • The Assembly Workbench is used for making Components out of Metallic Alloys but they're labelled as spare parts
  • Researching Devilstrand gives you NO immediate gains. It is just the first step in learning to plant it.
