Colonists in RimWorld use a variety of different resources. They fall into the following categories:

  • Food is used to survive. Hebivorous animals need plants, while humans and omnivorous animals eat plants and meat in various stages of processing.
  • Materials are used to build structures and other buildings, craft art and for trading. Wood is easily available in most biomes from trees, metals take more time to mine, while stone blocks require research and processing.
  • Textiles are used to make apparel. Fabrics can be traded and some can be grown. Leathers can be obtained from animals.
  • Medical Items include medicine, used to treat wounds and perform operations, and artificial body parts used improve or replace missing parts.
  • Crafted Resources are made in the colony from simpler raw resources, but traders can still offer them too.
  • Exotic Items can be traded for a large surplus in silver.

Certain resources in nearly every category are susceptible to deterioration.

The following is an overview over the individual items in each category.

A one-use super-dose of mechanites tuned to heal health conditions. The mechanites will target and heal the single worst health condition affecting someone at any given time. Works even on health conditions that would otherwise be incurable. The mechanites can even transmute themselves into organic matter, forming new limbs or organs as needed.

A small AI core housing a low-grade subpersona specialized in teaching technology. When used, the AI will teach you one technology you don't know, instantly and for free. Can only be used once.
