New Colony -button not working / Locale config reset fix

(original forum thread) Creating new colony button doesn't work. The game starts, you can access the Load and Options screens via their buttons, but New Colony button does not work. No errors, no log files.

Might be a Unity bug that only applies if your system locale is not English. All you have to do is start the game by prefixing it with LC_ALL=C, which effectively resets all locale configurations for the game.

So, instead of double-clicking on RimWorld254Linux.x86_64, do this:

  • Create an empty file (in the Rimworld folder)
  • Write these lines in it using any text editor:
#!/bin/bash
LC_ALL=C ./RimWorld254Linux.x86_64
  • Right-click the new file and set its permissions to executable
  • Double-click that new file to run the game

Getting the game to run

  • Unzip the gamefiles
  • Set the executable bit for RimWorld250Linux.x86 or RimWorld250Linux.x86_64 as needed
    • If double-clicking doesn't start the game, see Locale config reset fix below
  • Launch the game


Locale config reset fix

(original forum thread) Creating new colony button doesn't work. The game starts (also instances when the game didn't launch at all), you can access the Load and Options screens via their buttons, but New Colony button does not work! No errors, no log files.

I think this is a Unity bug that only applies if your system locale is not English. All you have to do is start the game by prefixing it with LC_ALL=C, which effectively resets all locale configurations for the game.
