There are many, many things to be done on this wiki to make it better. Mark incomplete pages or pages needing work with Category:Unfinished pages or use Template:UC to make our job a bit easier.

Wiki consistency

Outdated pages and pages under construction

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


Under Construction

No pages currently marked 'Under Construction'.


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

  • Guides: Most of the guides here need more people working on them. PigeonGuru (talk) 13:53, 19 June 2017 (UTC)
    • We need better guides for the 2 other starter scenarios. It's best that someone more experienced with these scenarios start them off and add content to them. PigeonGuru, Strategist ( talk | contribs ) 12:07, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • There's a problem in Stone blocks page as it lists Jade incorrectly.
    • I took a look at this and could do it, but still mulling it over. Here's what I'm thinking (Jimyoda (talk) 18:45, 29 September 2017 (UTC)):
      • Change the Template:Stone Blocks to Template:Stone. Edit the contents accordingly.
      • Jade and all stone blocks will display 'Type' in the infobox as 'Material - Stone'. The six pages will show categories at the bottom as Material | Stone.
      • For each of the five pages of stone blocks, tag them with category 'Stone Blocks'. Those pages will show categories at the bottom as Material | Stone | Stone Blocks.
      • Without any further changes, the 'Stone blocks' pages will list only actual stone blocks.
      • Optionally a new page (called Stone) could be made that lists Jade and its sister stone block materials.
      • I'll watch for comments here, for at least two days, before trying these changes. Jimyoda (talk) 18:45, 29 September 2017 (UTC)
    • I would classify it as a new category: Precious, since Jade doesn't feel quite like stone. PigeonGuru, Strategist ( talk | contribs | assist ) 00:20, 30 September 2017 (UTC)
    • The game categorizes three types of materials: woody, metallic, and stony. The game classifies jade as stony, so it actually is stone. Jimyoda (talk) 21:39, 30 September 2017 (UTC)

Updates needed for Alpha 17

Same as before: a list of all changes from alpha 17 that need to be added to their respective pages. Don't forget to <strike> strikethough </strike> (or <s> strikethrough </s>) any items you see are completed and sign them with ~~~~. Nitrodev (talk) 09:12, 25 May 2017 (UTC)

World quests

  • New “site parts” world site generation system. It allows assembling together a world destination from several ‘parts’. Mixing and matching will allow us to create a huge number of combinations.
    • Not really relevant to the basegame- this is relevant to modders only. PigeonGuru (talk) 09:27, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

Other new stuff

  • Bills can now be temporarily paused when satisfied, until automatically reactivated at a lower level. This reduces the need for pawns to repeatedly return to the work bench each time the count falls just one below the target count. DONE. ~ Jimyoda (talk) 01:33, 2 October 2017 (UTC)


Since the contents of this section are a bit harder to document and no as relevant to the majority of people visiting the wiki, i will put a collapse here for the time being.

  • Modders can now add “def modifiers” which, instead of replacing a whole def, change specific fields of that def. This allows multiple mods to change the same def without wiping each others’ changes (unless they change the same field, of course).
  • Information on how to use def modifiers is in this forum thread: [https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=32735.0]
  • Various enums are now defs so modders can add new ones (TrainableIntelligence , DamageArmorCategory, ImpactSoundType, ReservationLayer, BillRepeatMode, PrisonerInteractionMode, FleshType).
  • GUI tables (like most of the main tabs along the bottom of the screen) are now defined by data, making it easier to add, rearrange, sort, and change columns on the UI.
  • Increasing skill relevance
  • Mining skill reworked: Steeper speed penalty for low skill. Mining yield is now slightly dependent on mining skill.
  • Work tab boxes are easier to identify skill level for visually.


  • AI has more intelligent ranged shot target selection with random elements. Harder to exploit, and looks less dumb, doesn’t shoot at chickens as much. No need to document, minor detail. PigeonGuru, Strategist ( talk | contribs ) 12:03, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Raider with mega-weapons will now avoid friendly fire. PigeonGuru, Strategist ( talk | contribs ) 12:03, 17 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Added a new state to caravan lord job, “bloody exit”, which makes the exit individually, as aggressively as possible. This makes it a bit hard to rob caravans. Added to Caravan page under Events. PigeonGuru, Strategist ( talk | contribs ) 12:03, 17 September 2017 (UTC)

Misc Changes

  • New graphics for some floor types and things (stone floors, stone chunks, etc).
  • Rebalanced the beauty system to be much more dependent on art; random furniture has less or no beauty effect.

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> (or <s> strikethrough </s>)any items you complete and sign them with ~~~~. Nitrodev (talk) 14:43, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Miscellaneous Changes

  • UI can now be scaled to arbitrary scaling factors, for players who play in really high resolution.
  • New translation tool gives a readout of exactly what translation data remains to be written and what data is unused.

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.
