A colonist's mood ranges from 0 to 100%. Low moods cause mental breaks, while high moods may trigger inspirations. Mood is affected by thoughts and traits, which add or subtract from a base mood determined by the difficulty level. A colonist's "Needs" tab shows the Mood bar graph and all active mood modifiers.

Difficulty Base Mood
Peaceful 42
Community builder 42
Adventure story 37
Strive to survive 32
Blood and dust 27

The difficulty can be changed at any time during gameplay.

With a sufficiently high mood (>90%?), colonists can sometimes get inspired to work harder, run faster or gain other interesting positive benefits. Mood management is a large part of the game, as a happy colony is a productive colony. An unhappy colony generally doesn't get a whole lot done as colonists in a mental break are too busy digging up corpses, wandering around aimlessly or beating up their loved ones.

Prisoners with high mood are easier to recruit and less likely to break out or go berserk.

Mechanics

Mood updates gradually, rather than instantly, in response to new mood modifiers. There is a "mood target", indicated by a white triangle below the blue Mood bar, which does update instantly; and then the actual mood level slowly moves toward the target. For example, when a Hungry colonist (-6 mood) eats a meal, you'll see the white triangle immediately jump to the right as the Hungry effect disappears, but the blue bar takes 20 or so seconds (real time at 1x speed) to inch its way toward the triangle.

Furthermore, when a colonist is sleeping or otherwise unconscious, the mood bar stays in place. This can lead to large discrepancies that may confuse the naive player. Imagine a Tired (-12 mood) colonist, who is "Soaking wet" (-3) in "Darkness" (-5) and had "Observed rotting corpse x2" (-9) ten hours ago, and is also "Ravenously hungry" (-12); let's say his net mood is 10, which is in the "Major break risk" range. Imagine this colonist comes inside, eats a fine meal (+5), and immediately goes to sleep; the mood bar has risen to 15 by this time. A few hours into his sleep, all the negative modifiers are gone and his mood target is 56, well out of the danger zone; however, the mood bar will stay where it is at 15 until he wakes up, and so will the "Major break risk" warning (though mental breaks do not trigger while asleep).

Mood management

There are various ways of increasing mood, which generally fall into two self-explanatory categories: Remove the bad things and add more good things. There are a lot of mood-influencing Thoughts. The key to happiness is, in subjective order of importance:

Avoid bad things

Keep an eye on your colonist's needs tab and see which of their negative thoughts can be alleviated.

Environment

A colonist in a clean, beautiful and spacious interior is a happy colonist. Conversely, a colonist in a hideous environment can quickly go berserk. The difference between the best and worst of environments can be as much as 60 mood.

Recreation

A few hours of mandatory recreation time per day on a variety of recreation objects will prevent tantrum spirals and will lead to long-lasting mental stability. Spread out the recreation time over the day to keep colonists' recreation need topped up.

Possessions

Although most communes share all their possessions, some traits can benefit from certain types of apparel or weaponry. Not wearing tattered apparel is also something pawns can enjoy, so assigning their outfit to have at least 50% durability is an option. Lastly, a very impressive bedroom leads to long-term happiness.

The most cost-effective methods of mood management the player has direct influence over are reducing negative thoughts such as organ-harvesting and observing or butchering corpses, so if mood is a problem maybe it's time to stop. Relatively cheap and effective in both short- and long-term is making sure your colonists have a pleasant, clean and comfortable environment. A comfortable chair at a workstation can provide an up to +10 mood boost for the low cost of some resources, and a good quality bed to sleep in will ensure colonists wake up with a smile. Some art in their surroundings can further push up their mood.

Investing in a large, comfortable and impressive combined recreation and dining room pays off dividends. For a relatively low investment, the entire colony can get a substantial mood boost from simply eating a fine meal at a table and playing some horseshoes. An impressive bedroom only benefits one or two people, but the mood effects are permanent.

Lavish meals, drugs or artifacts can greatly increase mood in the short term, which helps keeping things running during stressful times. They are generally a challenge to keep up in the long-term.

Extreme measures

Sometimes, an unlucky pawn has enough combined negative modifiers (scar pain, drug withdrawal, deaths of family members, psychic drone) that they'll still be in the extreme break risk zone even if you give them the best food and bedroom and all-day recreation. If you don't want to deal with constant mental breaks, you have a few options.

To have a mental break, a pawn must be awake and able to move. This yields these strategies: assigning the pawn to go to sleep (works for some hours until the rest bar fills up), anesthetizing the pawn (decent for short periods, but costs medicine every time), putting them in a cryptosleep casket (drug withdrawal probably won't progress during stasis but most effects probably will), and the famous/infamous "cut their legs off" approach (install peg legs, then remove them).

The Joywire implant gives +30 mood—at the significant cost of -20% consciousness, and it cannot be removed. Thus, it should be used as a permanent solution to permanent problems.

Below is a list of the thoughts that human characters can experience, including how it affects their mood

Thought Details

Justified execution

This thought occurs in every colonist when a "guilty" prisoner is killed by a colonist. A prisoner is guilty for 24 hours after attacking the colony, killing/downing a colonist or attempting escape.

Someone was organ-harvested

This thought occurs in every colonist when an organ is harvested from a prisoner or guest. This does not occur when the organ is harvested by the installation of a replacement, such as a bionic heart, nor does it happen when removing an artificial body part.

Justified execution of colonist

This thought occurs in every colonist when a "guilty" colonist that is held prisoner is subsequently killed by another colonist. A prisoner is guilty for 24 hours after attacking the colony, killing/downing a colonist or attempting escape.

Colonist organ-harvested

This thought occurs in every colonist when an organ is harvested from a colonist. This does not occur when the organ is harvested by the installation of a replacement, such as a bionic heart, nor does it happen when removing an artificial body part.

A prisoner was sold

This thought occurs in every colonist when a prisoner is sold into slavery.

Ate fine meal

This thought occurs when a humanoid eats a fine meal.

Ate lavish meal

This thought occurs when a humanoid eats a lavish meal.

Ate nutrient paste

This thought occurs when a humanoid eats nutrient paste.

Ate without table

This thought occurs when a humanoid eats without a table.

It occurs frequently even if you have tables, for many times colonists aren't bothered to go long distances to a table to eat and will simply eat off the floor instead. This can be avoided by watching pawns who are far from base, and when they pull out food and start to eat, draft and immediately undraft them, then have them haul the dropped food back to storage.

Ate raw food

This thought occurs when a humanoid eats raw food.

Beauty

These thoughts occur when a human's environment opinion rises above or falls below certain values.

  • Hideous environment: When their opinion dips below 15.
  • Very ugly environment: When their opinion dips below 30.
  • Ugly environment: When their opinion dips below 42.
  • Pleasant environment: When their opinion rises above 58.
  • Very pleasant environment: when their opinion rises above 70.
  • Gorgeous environment: When their opinion rises above 85.

Bionics

These thoughts occur when a pawn with specific traits has bionic body parts installed on them.

For Transhumanist pawns:

  • Transhumanist frustrated: no parts.
  • Transhumanist pleased: 1 part.
  • Transhumanist quite pleased: 2 parts.
  • Transhumanist delighted: 3 parts.
  • Transhumanist enchanted: 4 parts.
  • Transhumanist overjoyed: 5 parts.
  • Machine body is complete: 6 or more parts.

For Body purist pawns:

  • Body purist squeamish: 1 part.
  • Body purist disgusted: 2 parts.
  • Body purist violated: 3 parts.
  • Body purist horrified: 4 parts.
  • Body purist nightmare: 5 parts.
  • I have become what I hate: 6 or more parts.

Cabin Fever (outdated information)

This thought occurs when a humanoid has spent a great amount of time inside. It has 2 stages:

  • Mild: more than 140000 ticks (7 game days) inside.
  • Serious: more than 280000 ticks (14 game days) inside.

The humanoid does not take on this thought when incapacitated (whether indoors or not) or imprisoned, but the timer for ticks inside is still active.

Cannibalism

This thought occurs when a humanoid eats human meat in various forms.

  • Raw cannibalism: When the humanoid eats raw human meat, butchered or not. This happens concurrently with the 'Ate raw food' debuff.
  • Cooked cannibalism: When the humanoid eats human meat cooked into meals.

Catharsis

This thought occurs after a colonist has a mental break due to poor mood.

For this thought to occur the mental break must be allowed to run its course. Interrupting the break, by downing or arresting the affected colonist, will cause this thought to not occur. Berserk breaks are an exception, being able to grant the Catharsis buff even if interrupted.

Cold

This thought occurs when the temperature drops below a humanoid's comfortable temperature. There are 3 variations depending on how low the temperature is below the humanoid:

  • Cold: 1 - 10 °C below comfort.
  • Very cold: 11 - 20 °C below comfort.
  • Shivering: 21 °C or lower below comfort.

My <relation> <name> died

This thought occurs when a colonist's family member dies. The death need not happen in the player's colony to cause this mood. Severity is dependent on the closeness of the relation - with children and spouses being highest, and relations outside of their immediate family being lower.

Colonist banished

This thought occurs when a colonist is banished from the colony or a caravan.

Colonist left to die

This thought occurs when a colonist is abandoned from a caravan in conditions where he will most likely not survive. It usually occurs if the outside temperature is outside of the colonist's comfortable range, or the colonist is downed.

If this colonist is a relative, friend or rival of another colonist, they will gain the thought relating to their deaths (eg "My son died" if a son is abandoned) on top of this thought.

Colonist left unburied

This thought occurs when a colonist corpse is in the open for more than 80000 ticks (4 game days).

Comfort

This thought occurs when a colonist's comfort rises above or falls below a certain value. It has various stages:

  • Uncomfortable: When comfort falls below 15%.
  • Comfortable: When comfort rises above 60%.
  • Very comfortable: When comfort rises above 70%.
  • Extremely comfortable: When comfort rises above 80%.
  • Luxuriantly comfortable: When comfort rises above 90%.

Dead man's apparel

This though occurs when a pawn is wearing apparel stripped from a corpse. Mood effect ranges from -3 to -8 based on how many pieces the pawn's wearing.
Bloodlust pawns don't gain the debuff.

Defeated hostile leader

This occurs when the colony kills an enemy faction leader.

Disturbed sleep

This thought occurs when a humanoid or animal walks within seven squares (without walls in between) of a sleeping humanoid, or the humanoid is called to do work while sleeping.

Exhaustion

These thoughts occur when a humanoid's rest level dips below certain values. See Rest.

  • Drowsy: When rest level dips below 30.
  • Tired: When rest level dips below 20.
  • Exhausted: When rest level dips below 0.01. Afterwards the pawn may collapse and start sleeping on the ground.

Forced to take drugs

This thought occurs when you administer non-medical drugs to a teetotaler using a medical operation.

Medical drugs such as penoxycyline do not trigger this thought.

Hot

This thought occurs when the outside temperature is higher than the colonist's comfortable temperature. There are 4 variations depending on how low the temperature is below the humanoid:

  • Hot: 1 - 10 °C above comfortable temperature.
  • Very hot: 11 - 20 °C above comfortable temperature.
  • Extremely hot: 21 - 30 °C above comfortable temperature.
  • Burning up: 31 °C or higher above comfortable temperature.

Human leather apparel

This though occurs when a pawn is wearing apparel made using human leather. Mood effect ranges from -3 to -8 based on how many pieces the pawn's wearing.
Bloodlust or Cannibal pawns instead gain a mood buff from +3 to +8.

Hungover (pounding)

This thought is the first of three hangover stages that occurs after a humanoid has become drunk. It has a mood effect of -10. Consciousness is reduced by 18% and is accompanied by mild vomiting.

Hungover (strong)

This thought is the second hangover stage that occurs after a humanoid has become drunk. It has a mood effect of -5. Consciousness is reduced by 8%.

Hungover (slight)

This thought is the third and final hangover stage that occurs after a humanoid has become drunk. It has a mood effect of -2. Consciousness is reduced by 3%.

Hunger

These thoughts occurs when a humanoid is hungry and needs food. There are several severities depending on how long the pawn hasn't had access to food. See Saturation.

  • Hungry: When saturation level dips below 0.3.
  • Urgently hungry: When saturation level dips below 0.2.
  • Starving: When saturation level reaches 0 and malnutrition kicks in, which will eventually kill the colonist.
    • Trivial: 0 - 19% severity of malnutrition.
    • Minor: 20 - 39% severity of malnutrition.
    • Moderate: 40 - 59% severity of malnutrition.
    • Severe: 60 - 79% severity of malnutrition.
    • Extreme: 80 - 100% severity of malnutrition. After this, the unfortunate pawn dies.

I Butchered humanlike

This thought occurs when a humanoid processes a humanlike corpse at a butcher table.

Imprisoned

This thought occurs when a humanoid is kept as a Prisoner.

Insulted

This thought occurs when a humanoid is insulted by another humanoid.

In darkness

This thought occurs when a humanoid has spent more than 4000 ticks (1/5 of a game day) away from any light source.

The humanoid does not take on this thought when sleeping (whether in darkness or not), but the timer for ticks away from a light source is still active while sleeping.

Inebriated (warm)

This thought occurs after a humanoid consumes beer and their alcohol level reaches 10%. Pain level is reduced by 10%, while manipulation is reduced by 2%.

Inebriated (tipsy)

This thought occurs after a humanoid consumes beer and their alcohol level reaches 25%. Pain level is reduced by 20%, while consciousness is reduced by 10%.

Inebriated (drunk)

This thought occurs after a humanoid consumes beer and their alcohol level reaches 40%. Pain level is reduced by 50%, while consciousness is reduced by 35%, accompanied by mild vomiting. At this level it triggers a tale that may show up in an art description; and the humanoid will soon start having a hangover.

Inebriated (hammered)

This thought occurs after a humanoid consumes beer and their alcohol level reaches 70%. Pain level is reduced by 70%, while consciousness is reduced by 60%, accompanied by vomiting. Consuming more beer at this stage may trigger a blackout.

Joywire

A pawn with a joywire implant has a permanent +30 mood buff. However, the implant also permanently reduces consciousness.

Low expectations

This thought occurs when total colony wealth is below a certain value. It has 6 stages at different wealth values, and also affects recreation tolerance loss (higher wealth colonies need more recreation variety):

  • Extremely low expectations: When wealth is below 15000. Joy tolerance loss per day 18%. 2 recreation types recommended.
  • Very low expectations: When wealth is below 31000. Joy tolerance loss per day 13%. 3 recreation types recommended.
  • Low expectations: When wealth is below 81000. Joy tolerance loss per day 11%. 3 recreation types recommended.
  • Moderate expectations: When wealth is below 182000. Joy tolerance loss per day 10%. 4 recreation types recommended.
  • High expectations: When wealth is below 308000. Joy tolerance loss per day 8%. 5 recreation types recommended.
  • Sky-High: When wealth is below 1000000000 (A value near impossible to reach). Joy tolerance loss per day 7%. 6 recreation types recommended.

My organ harvested

This thought occurs when a pawn has an organ harvested.

Naked

This thought occurs when a non-nudist humanoid is not wearing any clothing.

New colony hope

Occurs once "New colony optimism" expires. This thought is the second stage of the start-of-game "boost" to help the newly landed colonists keep their mood up while they set up beds, furniture, decorations, and other structures.

New colony optimism

A starting "boost", this thought occurs at the start of the game to help the newly landed colonists keep their mood up while they set up beds, furniture, decorations, and other structures.

Observed corpse

This thought occurs when a corpse is visible to a colonist - not buried or incinerated.

Pain

These thoughts occur when a humanoid is under pain. It has 4 stages depending on pain severity.

  • Pain (little): When pain is between 1 - 14%.
  • Pain (moderate): When pain reaches 15%.
  • Pain (acute): When pain reaches 40%.
  • Pain (shock):When pain reaches 80%. Colonists in this state are incapacitated.

Passion (work)

These thoughts occur when a pawn is doing work they have a passion for (see the bio).

  • Minor passion: When a pawn does work they have a passion level of interested for.
  • Burning passion: When a pawn does work they have a passion level of burning for.

These work passions, especially burning, can help a colonist who does that work full time become much more likely to gain inspirations and much less likely to have mental breaks due to a much better mood most of the time. Combined with the exp boost to skills a pawn is passionate about, it makes passion in a desired field invaluable - a colonist with a moderate skill level but a burning passion is in many cases superior to a mid-high skill pawn due to the ability to become incredibly skilled in a comparatively short period of time.

As dumb labor like hauling and cleaning are not tied to a skill, no one will ever gain happiness from them. Even thousands of years in the future, we still all have boring chores to do.

Psychic effects

Psychic drones occur during the psychic ship or psychic drone events.

  • Low: Psychic drone event, or 0 - 2.5 days after the crash.
  • Medium: Psychic drone event, or 2.5 - 5 days after the crash.
  • High: Psychic drone event, or 5 - 7.5 days after the crash.
  • Extreme: 7.5 days or later after the crash.

Psychic soothes occur during the psychic soothe event.

Recreation

These thoughts occur when the recreation meter of a humanoid rises or falls below certain values. See Joy.

  • Recreation-starved: When the recreation meter is at 0%.
  • Recreation-deprived: When the recreation meter is between 1% and 14%.
  • Recreation unfulfilled: When the recreation meter is between 15% and 29%.
  • Recreation satisfied: When the recreation meter is between 70% and 84%.
  • Recreation fully satisfied: When the recreation meter is at least 85%.

Sick

This thought occurs when a colonist has an illness.

Sleeping conditions

These thoughts occur when a humanoid sleeps in various unfavorable conditions.

  • Slept outside: When a humanoid sleeps in an outdoor space, or an incomplete room.
    • This thought does not occur in unroofed rooms.

  • Slept in cold: When a humanoid sleeps when the temperature falls below 16°C. (clothing doesn't change value)
  • Slept in heat: When a humanoid sleeps when the temperature raises above 32°C. (clothing doesn't change value)
