Wiki consistency

Outdated pages and pages under construction

Could admins also please clean up any unnecessary pages in these two categories?


Under Construction


Needs to be done list: (Feel free to do these if you know how!) (italic = minor, bold = major)

  • Mass: Masses for many of the items are incomplete. See User:Spdskatr for more information. Spdskatr (talk) 22:19, 25 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Quickstart_Guide: Revised plan: guide based on generalized temperate landing with Extreme Cold and Extreme Heat biomes given separate pages. Work in progress. Darkphoenyx27
  • Events page: Needs updating/more descriptions.
  • AI storyteller: Needs updating. I updated all the code specifics for Alpha 13, don't know if anything else needs updating 16 May 2016 Peppsen (talk)
  • Wiki Consistency: Some pages are not consistent with the current wiki's style. Find and update those pages.
  • Alpha 9 Updates: Nearly all Alpha 9 updates have been added but a few still remain.
  • Alpha 10 updates: "Joy System" All of the newly implemented features and tweaks
  • Alpha 11 Updates: "Sappers and Traps" Same as above but for Alpha 11
  • Alpha 12 Updates: "Animal Taming" All changes from blog post are listed below.
  • Mods: Please keep adding mods from the forum to the Alpha 8 mod list
  • Defs: Def elements might be something useful to add in for technical reference/modder wannabes. This stuff is being constantly revised and constructed upon, so it's your choice whether to make it its own page or to integrate it as part of another page (e.g. Colonist). I've only covered a small amount of defs (see Category:Defs for a list), and that was a year ago. Longbyte1 (talk) 05:05, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Main Page: RimWorld Logo needs updating to current. elStrages Appears to be current logo already, the top left logo can't be changed. Fernbhoy (talk)
  • Wiki Icon: The 'O' icon needs updating to the one in the left nav or the one fomr the new logo elStrages
  • Updated Wiki Navigation(Right side complete): I am in the process of adding navigation to the top of each page, It came about from the poor navigation bog at the bottom of the Architect page. elStrages
  • Organs and Implants: Needs a page either in items or in the health tab. Place feedback bellow on ideas DONE, except for some regular body parts, Eye, Arm, Leg. (see Medical Items by Crystalline Cat) ~ Jimyoda (talk) 16:15, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
  • "Drafting": Soldier page needs to be removed and drafting should be expanded. CheesusGamer
    • feedback here
      • Please note that pages for human body parts (i.e. Bionic arm) list a subtype of 'body part'. A page for 'Body part' doesn't currently exist. This term in this context infers human body part. However, a page named as 'Body part' should be written to either include or disambiguate from body parts of all pawns, including animals and mechanoids. And one detail to consider is whether to name the page as 'Body part' or 'Body parts'. One other relevant note, there is a page 'Table of human body parts'. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 16:15, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Need a better way to display data on tables without having to update the tables themselves. What's the best way to pull stats and stuff from pages to a table on another page? Zesty (talk)
    • I started a short how-to on properties and queries on my user page. Does that help? --Khaim (talk) 21:42, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Could uses a page on pawns, if there isn't already one somewhere on the modding pages. Zesty (talk) There is the page Colonist Maoman (talk) 20:53, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Need a page describing cleanness and how it affects health/infections. Freakycrafter
  • Provide the minimal specifications to play the game. (I can't create a new page for this, but you can find the specs at store.steampowered.com/app/294100/. --Shatterhand (talk) 20:42, 21 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Insect infestations There is almost no information on the entire wiki about infestations, insect jelly, insect meat, jelly farming, etc. The only mention is Events#Infestation and what little info is on the individual spider pages, like Megaspider.
  • need to add build roof area to zones/area category

Updates needed for Alpha 16

Same as was done for alpha 15: a list of all changes from alpha 16 that need to be added to their respective pages. Don't forget to <strike>strikethough</strike> any items you complete and sign them with ~~~~. Nitrodev (talk) 14:43, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

New Features

Spherical planet

  • World map is now modeled as a sphere covered with hexagons (and a few pentagons).
  • New map generation to make nicer mountain ranges, hill clusters, and continents.
  • Nice backdrop with stars and sun.
  • Time of day is modeled on the planet view; local time of day corresponds to how the sunlight hits the planet.
  • Time zones are now modeled, out of necessity.
  • New planet generation parameter: temperature. You can make worlds that are overall hotter or overall colder.
  • New planet generation parameter: rainfall. You can make worlds where there is overall more or less precipitation.
  • New biome: sea ice. Nitrodev (talk) 10:18, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Factions can now have many bases; non-player factions generate with lots of bases.
  • Multiple simultaneous maps
  • There can now be multiple local maps active at once. For example, you can have your colony running as well, as a group of soldiers attacking an enemy base, at the same time.
  • The character bar at the top of the screen shows all of your colonists and allows you to change which map you’re looking at. It groups characters togehter by the map they’re on.
  • You can settle multiple colonies at once. However, for balance and performance reasons, the default limit is one colony at a time. This can be increased in the options menu if you want to experiment, but we don’t recommend it.


  • Player can now gather up groups of colonists, prisoners, and animals, and form caravans to travel across the world surface. Nitrodev (talk) 20:52, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Caravans are formed using a special “create caravan” dialog, which allows you to easily decide what people, animals, and items should be included in the caravan up to its carry weight limit. The colonists do the busywork. Nitrodev (talk) 20:52, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Caravans appear as units in the world map, where they can be ordered around similarly to drafted soldiers in the local map.
  • Caravans can be ambushed by enemy factions or manhunting animals. This produces a temporary local map.
  • Caravans can incidentally meet friendly traders and trade.
  • Caravans can visit other faction bases and trade with them. Faction bases have more stock and better prices than traders who come and visit your colony.
  • Caravans can attack faction bases. The game generates a simple faction base map with defenders and loot, and you raid it. If you defeat the defenders, you can move in and take over the base (for now, generated bases are quite simple.)
  • Caravans can settle and form new colonies.
  • You can abandon your bases to shift to new ones.
  • Caravans move at different speeds depending on the biome, the time of year (cold biomes close off with the winter snows), local hilliness, the movement speeds of people in the caravan, and whether there are wounded to carry.
  • It is possible to abandon people and items from caravans. Abandoning people will, depending on the context, produce sad thoughts from their friends and relatives, especially if you abandon them in circumstances that seem *impossible to survive.

Travel victory

  • New game ending: A friendly person offers a ship, but it is distant, across the world map. If you travel there, you can escape the planet and complete the game. But, traveling there will take a long time and you’ll need to stop at various points to build up supplies or solve problems.

Transport pods

  • You can build transport pod launchers and transport pods. These let you launch their contents long distances across the world map, over oceans or mountains.
  • Pods can be targeted on empty world tiles, to send a caravan of people and gear there.
  • Pods can be targeted on enemy bases, where you can perform “drop-in” raids and drop right on top of the base, or drop outside it – just like raiders do to you!
  • Pods can be targeted on existing combat maps or other bases you control. This allows you to do things like resupply an ongoing siege with artillery shells (just like raiders do when besieging you), reinforce a weak caravan that just got ambushed, or send supplies and people between two bases you control.
  • Pods are loaded by selecting several and creating a “launch group”. An interface like that for creating caravans appears, allowing you to define what and who should be included. The colonists do the detail work.
  • Transport pods require chemfuel, which can be bought, founded, drilled from the ground, or refined from wood or food using the new refinery building.
  • New research screen! Research projects are laid out visually according to their dependencies in a left-to-right arrangement similar to the Civilization games. Modders need to manually place their projects, but if two overlap the game will automatically move them apart.
  • Redesigned how medical system generates text feedback. Tooltips now contain much more information with less ambiguity. Wound tendings are now of any percentage quality (not just good/poor).
  • Game now warns you when you order slaughter of a bonded animal (because of the mood impact).
  • Added visual feedback thought bubbles for when pawns gain certain good and bad thoughts, so it’s easier to see when something just bothered or pleased them.
  • Rich soil is darker in color and so easier to see.
  • Added a “hold fire” toggle on drafted pawns that makes them not automatically shoot at enemies.
  • In order to avoid annoying players by having animals always follow their masters, even into combat, players can configure when animals will follow their masters. There are two toggles: Follow while drafted, follow while hunting/taming

Drugs and health

  • Drug rebalance. Increase drug addictiveness in general. Drugs can now damage the body in various ways: Alcohol can cause brain damage or liver cirrhosis or liver cancer, smokeleaf can cause asthma or lung cancer, psychite can *damage kidneys, wake-up and go-juice can damage the brain, and generalized overdoses can cause brain damage.
  • Drugs are more lucrative on the market.
  • Added a third toggle in drug policy saying whether you can use the drug to feed an addiction, separately from joy usage.
  • There is now a random chance of a overdose when taking drugs, even if just taking one dose.
  • Added a way to administer specific drugs to people, including prisoners, animals, and downed people. So you can give Luciferium to someone who needs it.
  • Malari-block reworked into Penoxycyline, which prevents a wide variety of infections (not just malaria). Nitrodev (talk) 09:45, 23 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Drug chemical effects are modulated by body size. So elephants need a lot of beer to get hammered; squirrels not so much.
  • Luciferium occasionally heals old wounds/scars. Luciferium is harder to get (less of it in old shrines, higher prices).
  • Stats now stack differently (more additive, less multiplying) to reduce some exploits.

Miscellaneous Changes

  • Reworked surgery failure into three modes – minor, catastrophic, and ridiculous. Ridiculous hits all body parts, minor and catastrophic hit parts near the surgery site.
  • Reworked trade prices across the board. Simplified trade price calculations and added rich tooltips to feed them back.
  • The mood effects from room impressiveness have been redesigned and rebalanced. Characters now have consistently reasonable thoughts about the quality of their personal room, so there is a reason to make better rooms (though *high-quality rooms aren’t absolutely necessary). Mood effects from eating in or convalescing in nice/poor rooms are also more reasonable and better-fed back.
  • Rebalanced plant growth timings.
  • UI can now be scaled to arbitrary scaling factors, for players who play in really high resolution.
  • Rescued people (especially space refugees etc) should sometimes join the colony. If the environment isn’t survivable (e.g. bad temperature, toxic fallout) they should always join the colony. Nitrodev (talk) 17:54, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Animals carrying inventory now have visible packs on.
  • Added new separate bills to stonecut each type of stone.
  • Prisoners are now temporarily marked “guilty” when they do certain actions, like killing a colonist or attempting escape. Guilty prisoners can be executed without mood penalties.
  • Faction names are now much more interesting and varied, and are separate from specific community names.
  • New Peaceful difficulty mode, for players who just want to build stuff. Disables major involuntary threats like raids.
  • Rename Megatherium -> Megasloth
  • New alert: Unhappy nudity
  • Backstories can be translated now
  • New translation tool gives a readout of exactly what translation data remains to be written and what data is unused.
  • Added proper chick peeping sounds.
  • You can now only request one trader per 4 days from a faction.
  • Colonists now get mood boosts for defeating big enemies or enemy faction leaders.
  • Cleaning and harvesting jobs are now given in batches (more efficient and sensible AI).
  • Default medical care for non-colonists is now herbal meds. Switches to best meds on recruit.
  • Rebalanced most range weapons so more time is in cooldown and less is in aiming – especially for light weapons.
  • Pawns generated below age 20 now have no adulthood backstory.

Updates Needed for Alpha 15

Same as was done for alpha 14: a list of all changes from alpha 15 that need to be added to their respective pages. Don't forget to <strike>strikethough</strike> any items you complete and sign them with ~~~~. Maoman (talk) 20:42, 29 August 2016 (UTC)

New Content


  • Added new rich tutorial with step-by-step instructions.
  • Tutorial teaches the basics of setting up a game, building a small self-sustaining colony, and defeating the first raider.
  • Tutorial locks out irrelevant controls and highlights relevant controls.
  • At the end of the tutorial, the player can continue the game with a normal storyteller.

Learning helper

  • Added new learning helper system to replace yellow pop-up messages and yellow learning alerts.
  • Learning helper sits in the top right of the screen. If something happens relating to a concept the player hasn’t learned, that lesson will be activated and shown on the learning helper. It can then be opened and read. Lessons are automatically marked as learned when the player does the necessary interaction, and can be marked as learned manually. Lessons are shown as needed by circumstance, or on a slow timer. The overall idea is that you’ll never be shown a lesson you already know, but always be shown the lessons you need to know now.
  • Learning helper can be expanded and searched for any lesson, so you can look up how to do a specific thing at any time.

Drugs system

  • Added new drugs system. It’s not just beer any more! Nitrodev (talk) 13:19, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
  • Drugs typically create up to four effects. Not all drugs have all effects. Nitrodev (talk) 13:19, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
    • Primary – The valuable short-term effect, whether it improves mood or work focus or combat effectiveness or makes one immune to a disease.
    • Overdose – Excessive drug usage in a short time can build up blood toxicity, leading to unconsciousness and possible death.
    • Tolerance – Long-term usage of a drug can build up a tolerance which makes subsequent usage less and less effective in producing the high.
    • Addiction – Drug use can form an addiction. This generates a new need for the drug which the pawn will try to feed regularly. If the need isn’t fed, the pawn will develop withdrawal symptoms (low mood, reduced consciousness). Eventually withdrawal will pass and the addiction will go away.
  • Drugs can be assigned for regular taking through the drug policy system. Similar to Outfits, drug policies are an assigned schedule for taking drugs. You can set any number of drugs, each with a frequency. For example, you can assign a colonist to drink 2 beers every day, and take one Malari-Block every 5 days.
  • The drugs are: Nitrodev (talk) 13:18, 25 November 2016 (UTC)
    • Beer – Improved mood but worsened capacities. Addictive.
    • Malari-block – Prevents malaria infection for 5 days.
    • Yayo – Stimulant pleasure drug, addictive.
    • Flake – Cheap, short high, very addictive.
    • Wake-up – Improves work performance, addictive.
    • Smokeleaf – Improved mood but worsened capacities. More hunger, slower movement. Can form dependence.
    • Go-Juice – Synthetic futuristic combat drug. Boost speed and fighting capacity tremendously. Addictive.
    • Luciferium – Glitterworld mechanites that give huge bonuses to most capacities. However, without repeated doses the user goes insane and dies. It is impossible to clear the addiction, and the drug is 100% addictive on one dose.
  • Drugs are produced in various ways, typically at the new Drug Lab building, from various precursor chemicals and growable crops. They require research to create. Nitrodev (talk) 13:24, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Deep drilling

  • The map now spawns with clusters of underground resources. These can be accessed by building a deep scanner to find them, and then building deep drills on top of them, and then working the drills. This slowly produces the resource. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 05:40, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Deep drilling tech is at the end of the tech tree. This should mitigate late-game resource exhaustion problems. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 05:40, 17 September 2016 (UTC)

Misc Changes

  • Mood is now drawn subtly behind the pawn on the colonist readout at the top of the screen. Nitrodev (talk) 06:14, 31 August 2016 (UTC)
  • You can now produce medicine from herbal medicine, neutroamine (a precursor chemical you buy), and cloth. Requires research. Nitrodev (talk) 12:06, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Added passive cooler building. Made of wood and low tech, it cools a room for a short time. Good for passing heat waves as a tribe. Nitrodev (talk) 15:52, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Added a ‘copy building’ tool which lets you quickly select the designator for a building through an existing copy of that building.
  • Beer production now takes several stages: Colonists make wort (unfermented beer) at the brewer table, then leave it in fermenting barrels for a while, after which they can harvest it as beer.
  • Infestation can now only spawn under a thick roof. Nitrodev (talk) 08:05, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Gear tab now shows aggregate stats about armor and comfy temperatures.
  • Raiders steal a bit more often now. Nitrodev (talk) 20:14, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Factored MapGeneratorDef apart into separate GenStepDefs which can be modded or inserted individually. This will allow modders to change the MapGenerator without blowing away each others’ changes.
  • Added alert: Need warm clothes. Nitrodev (talk) 18:17, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Mods can now be dragged to reorder them in the mods page.
  • Re-tuned food finding algorithm.
  • Hunters will no longer hunt without a ranged weapon. Nitrodev (talk) 19:40, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Debuffed corn a bit. Tested this by growing plants to maturity with dev tools: every single plant yielded 19 corn, even more than was previously reported (domesticated plants says 8-18). Is this because I used dev tools, a bug, or intended function? The colonist who harvested was only level 11... Maoman (talk) 09:17, 31 August 2016 (UTC) The harvest yield was 22 in A14, it's now 19. I updated the values on the wiki. Nitrodev (talk) 15:17, 4 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Reworked trade interface to clearly state what kind of trader they are, and to list items they’re not willing to trade. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 19:12, 18 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Reworked trader stock generators so traders carry and accept more sensible items for their type.
  • You can now request traders by calling allied factions. It costs silver. Nitrodev (talk) 19:49, 2 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Chance to spring known traps is reduced from 2.5% to 0.4%. Nitrodev (talk) 07:49, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Friendly fire chances reduced by 60% for fly-by shots (shots that miss and land in the cell with a pawn have the same chance to hit as before).
  • Added a message when food spoils in storage.
  • Fix: Pawns don’t get ‘catharsis’ mood gainer thought after a mental break. Nitrodev (talk) 18:17, 15 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Rename PDW to Machine pistol. Maoman (talk) 20:50, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Torches and campfires are no longer destroyed near-instantly by rain/snow. They instead consume fuel faster. Nitrodev (talk) 07:47, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Torches consume fuel a bit faster overall. Nitrodev (talk) 07:55, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Fueled generator consumes fuel faster and holds less fuel. Nitrodev (talk) 07:35, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Plant sow and harvest are now slower. Nitrodev (talk) 18:22, 7 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Debuffed fists. Nitrodev (talk) 05:56, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Reduced volume of idle animal calls at high time speeds. No need to document. Nitrodev (talk) 19:35, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
  • Smithing is now a prerequisite for Machining research. Nitrodev (talk) 12:07, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Added a toggleable view that shows roofs in glowing green. Nitrodev (talk) 12:05, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Hundreds of other balance changes, text fixes, redesigns, and bug fixes. No need to document. Nitrodev (talk) 19:49, 2 September 2016 (UTC)

Updates from Previous Alphas

This is the list of changes from the Alpha 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 blog posts, for purposes of checking off items.

Basics and Concepts


  • [11a] Pawns check for job override when taking damage. It will no longer be possible to bug out the centipede enemy and kill him at close range while he tries to take a firing position.
  • [11a] Enemies no longer take unpowered player turrets as primary targets.

Thoughts and Mood

  • [12] Dazed broken pawns will now randomly strip off clothes and drop things. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 19:30, 18 September 2016 (UTC)


  • [10a] Reworked food search so it smoothly integrates information about food distance, taste, and psychological preference to get the most optimal food source.
  • [10a] Visitors will now carry away wounded guests from their faction.
  • [12] Added heart attacks. People or animals approaching or past their life expectancy will have a chance of heart attack, which will progress and resolve in a random way. Heart attack is emergency-treatable to improve outcomes.
  • [12] Added way to enable/deny medicine in different qualities to any colonist, prisoner, or tame animal, from the health tab.

Work and Skills

  • [9a] Reworked the ‘do until you have X’ option on bills; it now works for more bills and shows the number you currently have.
  • [9a] Colonists, when hauling to stockpiles, always haul the max amount they can carry, and drop the extra nearby if the target cell can’t hold it all. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 15:19, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [9e] Fixed a bug that prevented prisoners from using nutrient paste dispensers in their cells.
  • [9a] Player can no longer magically toggle power on any item. Rather, you designate power to be toggled and the colonists go do it. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 15:20, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [10a] Reduced skill degradation rate.
  • [10a] Hunters will now approach and execute downed animals at close range. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 22:56, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [10a] Hunted animals will occasionally fight back. Some animals always fight back. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 22:56, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [10a] Reworked how skills generate so there will be more initial skill variation and age affect starting skills more.
  • [10a] Generalized toggle power interaction to ‘switch flicking’ and applied it to power switch toggling and door locking as well as building power on/off.
  • [10a] You can now set a minimum skill level on bills.
  • [11a] Pawns can now do ‘job override’ checks to see if a new job should start before ending their current job. These are now used liberally to have pawns respond faster and more intelligently to changing conditions (especially in combat).
  • [11b] Colonists now harvest planted trees on their own.
  • [12] Unskilled or injured growers can fail at harvesting, destroying the harvest for one plant.
  • [12] Added animals skill. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 15:22, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Animal handling success rates are governed by the new Animals skill. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 15:22, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Colonists with the Animal Handler work type will now interact with animals. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 15:22, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Handlers can tame animals. They approach designated wild animals with food and attempt to tame them to make them part of the colony. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 15:22, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Handlers can train animals as designated in tame animals’ Training tab. Animal training looks like taming, requires food, and trains one “trainable skill” at a time. Not all animals can learn anything; they need sufficient trainable intelligence. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 15:22, 27 August 2016 (UTC)

Storyteller changes

  • [11a] Storytellers will never entirely disallow events because of population. Nitrodev (talk) 08:56, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
  • [11a] Randy’s event chances are affected by population (somewhat).
  • [11a] Re-tuned storyteller population intent based on new output tables for smoother population gain with higher maximum and better recovery at small populations
  • [12] Slightly relaxed threat frequency for Cassandra.

Game Objects


  • [12] Recipes can be defined to have different ingredients satisfy their ingredients at different ratios, based on any value calculated from the ingredient def. This lets us make a meal from 2 eggs, but 10 potatoes, because we base recipe value on nutrition, and the nutrition value of an egg is 0.25 while the nutrition of a potato is 0.05.
  • [12] Art for elephant tusk, thrumbo horn. Uploaded thrumbo horn. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:15, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] New installable implant: Painstopper. Prevents all pain, but reduces consciousness permanently. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:15, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] New installable implant: Joywire. Large permanent happiness boost, but reduces consciousness permanently. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:15, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Ancient artifacts with psychic powers can be bought, sold, and found in ancient crypts. Artifacts are one-use. Psychic powers work at any range through obstacles.
  • [12] Artifact: Psychic insanity lance – drives a single target insane DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:15, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Artifact: Psychic shock lance – drops a single target asleep DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:15, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Artifact: Psychic animal pulser – drives animals berserk map-wide DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:15, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] Artifact: Psychic soothe pulser – gives a temporary mood boost to everyone on the map DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:15, 28 August 2016 (UTC)


  • [11b] Smelt slag recipe can use do until you have X.
  • [12] Added animal sleeping spot, animal box, and animal bed. Only usable by animals of appropriate sizes. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 14:17, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
  • [12] New graphics for research bench and other buildings. DONE. Jimyoda (talk) 06:30, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • [12] New floors: gold tile, sterile tile, cream carpet, dark gray carpet. DONE. Jimyoda (talk) 06:30, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • [12] All furniture is now ‘minifiable’ like televisions and telescopes. This means beds, chairs, etc can be moved without being rebuilt, bought, and sold.
  • [12] Furniture can now be art engraved.
  • [12] Added ‘facilities’ – passive buildings that give bonuses to nearby buildings: DONE. Jimyoda (talk) 06:30, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • [12] Added Facility: Vitals monitor (improves healing in adjacent medical bed) DONE. Jimyoda (talk) 06:30, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • [12] Added Facility: Tool cabinet (improves production at nearby work table) DONE. Jimyoda (talk) 06:30, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • [12] Added Facility: Multi-analyzer (speeds research at nearby research bench) DONE. Jimyoda (talk) 06:30, 14 January 2017 (UTC)
  • [12] Graves are no longer just glorified storage slots; colonists must actually ‘bury’ corpses.
