General To-do List

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

  • Pages: Assign tab currently only has a brief overview on the menu page. Outfits, Food policies and Drug policies each need individual pages. Mayoculpa (talk) 12:19, 5 February 2020 (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)
  • Menus#Schedule needs a section and image for showing the addition of meditation by Royalty. Harakoni (talk) 05:02, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Market values: Mindscrew, Flatscreen television & Ground-penetrating scanner have market values at odds with their calculated market value. They could be manually set or there could be a bug in the market value calculation (like there is for prestige armor) or the articles could be wrong. They need to be checked in game. Harakoni (talk) 08:10, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Properties: Need to have descriptions added to pages - some of the older ones have unknown purposes and some documentation, even if it appears obviousm, would be good. Harakoni (talk) 01:07, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
  • Bed super page: We need a super page for beds to talk about generic mechanics and have tables for comparison. Atm its mostly on the bed page, with the rest spread out elsewhere. Obviously it can't be called Bed because thats taken/would be confusing. Potentially we can put it on as a subsection on Rest and have a "This page is for the furniture item, for beds generally see [[Rest#Beds|Beds]]" on the Bed page, and links to it on each bed page like "The royal bed is a [[Rest#Beds|Sleeping furniture]]" or something. Sleeping furniture is a terrible name and should be replaced in practice but you get the point. - Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 04:04, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
  • Chair super page: As above but for "sitting furniture". - Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 04:05, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
  • Animal Combat Power: Major only because of teh scope, Combat power should be added to the infobox, and the combat power of each animal should be added so it can be called. Atm the only way to find that info is the xmls and thats not useful for a lot of non-tech savvy player. Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 11:52, 15 June 2022 (UTC)

Updates and maintenance needed on the Wiki

  • Freshen up the frontpage, and if nothing else, change from a table to div setup --> In progress by Pangaea
  • Add an Admin noticeboard --> DONE by Pangaea
    • Not properly integrated or accessible from the rest of the wiki and thus of limited use. More work is likely needed Harakoni (talk) 08:10, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Add Community portal to the Sidebar (and maybe re-order it slightly? See Wikipedia's system)
  • Update some of the default footer pages, as they seem outdated currently --> Partially done by Pangaea
  • Given a fitting license, borrow content from other wikis and improve and expand our Help sections
  • Add articles for each technology and skill, with fitting templates
  • Purge outdated SMW entities: (see Statistics) --> DONE by Hypolite
  • Edit or make new screenshots without (so many) UI elements, as seen for instance in the Events page
  • An RSS feed for news would be nice, but looks like we'd need this extension for it. Could perhaps put it on the frontpage then. Pangaea (talk) 13:21, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
  • Template: STDT tables don't play nice with Template: infobox main and ToC as described here. This issue doesn't occur with wikitable class tables, so it is likely an issue with the STDT table and not the infobox. It might be related to the definitions in MediaWiki:Common.css as thats where the "c_01" values are defined. Unfortunately I don't know enough about the wiki formatting or the .css to fix it. There is a working hack but ideally we could make a fix thats native to STDT and not have to worry about it anymore. Harakoni (talk) 11:43, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Finish the page Help:Templates#Creating_a_template.


  • Install the MobileFrontend-extension -- Crasheripot
  • LinkSuggest: Useful for new users to easier create links without knowing the ins and outs of the page names.
  • RandomSelection: This can be neat on the main page for various gameplay tips and such, which then get randomly selected. Not sure if there would be a good use for it with this game, but I have seen it used to good effect on other wikis, such as Witcher 3.

Large projects

The following page groups need to have a standardized format with adequate detail decided, have that standard applied over the entire group, and then brought up to quality. These are all relatively large, multi-page jobs, many including many pages that aren't just non-standard but outright stubs, but it can be done piecemeal. The important part is getting a suitable standard first.

I'm not sure anyone will take this on, but I'd appreciate any help, even if its just adding suggestions to the suggested standards below Harakoni (talk) 05:50, 3 August 2021 (UTC)

Adding contributors for volunteers to sign up with. There is no pressure to take on the entire project but if you add your name, I'll know to ask your opinions/keep you apprised, and help you in any way to get these projects moving. Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 04:54, 19 March 2022 (UTC)
Page type Suggested detail/sections Contributors
Categories/All The grand recategorization and retyping - checking all page types and categories and reordering them in the same pattern as the stockpile/bills menu. Requires recategorisation, page moves, new categories etc Contributors
  • For plantables: Growing section using Template: Grow Table
  • For plantables: Economy - Proper analysis on their production compared to other producers of the same type (e.g. Food or Wood plants), as well as economic concerns - profitabiltiy with and without crafting, work/product, work/silver, tiles/product/day, tiles/silver/day etc.
  • Production strategies, e.g. how worth each is to put in hydroponics, greenhouses, whether to wall in, esp relevant for devilstrand
  • Trainability, diet, habitats, combat skills and analysis (seriously lacking atm), production economy, stragegies for combat/acquisition/use

See Go-juice for an example.

  • Acquistion/crafting information standardized
  • Summary
    • Instanteous effects e.g. recreation +X% is instantaneous, but the mood buff and other hediffs are long term and have a duration.
    • High effects
    • Tolerance and Severity gains
    • Addiction effects
    • Withdrawal effects
    • Effects for mtb to chemical damage etc.
  • Analysis
    • Effectivness for use (e.g. combat buff for Yayo and Go juice, mood buffs for social and hard drugs etc.)
    • Comparison of production compared to other drugs in the same class as part of above
    • Comparison of economies, like is currently available for Flake and Yayo, but for all drugs. If you're only selling it, you don't need to assume psychoid plants are the only thing you can grow - needs analysis per pawn work (inc. sowing, harvesting, and crafting work), per unit time, and per tile of grow space.
Weapons Largely have a functional standard following the traditional Acquistion/Summary/Analysis/Quality Table method, but pages are all out of date and in need of massive updates. Additionally, a way to display quality information for different materials is also needed. Talk to User: Harakoni for this last bit - ideas are in teh workds for updating Template: Weapon Quality Table but work is needed.
Production facilities Workbenches like the smithy, tailoring becnh etc.
  • Acquisition - self evident
  • Summary - general information about it use, with the use of Template:Recipe List to what is produced there (except when theres only 1 thing produced there)
  • Analysis - how vital is it to get, and comparison between fueled/hand version vs electric.
  • Template:Building_Material_Table
Recreation Standardized recreation comparison - tables with time to recreate etc.
Traps IEDs and spike traps. Standardisation and comparisons - see Security table for start.
Sculpture Sculpture, Small sculpture, Large sculpture, Grand sculpture, Terror sculpture
  • Lore
  • Variants
  • Ideologies
  • Pawns (from pawn tables where needed)
  • Faction Bases
  • Raid "rewards" (raid leaders will often carry silver, drugs, jade, resources etc as a reward, this is dependent on the faction)
  • Caravans?
  • Reinforcements?
  • Raid types and constitution?

And then add other sections and subsections as needed.

Artificial body parts Almost all of them need a dedicated summary section of their mechanics
Illumination area Add similar images in style/quality/content to Standing lamp#Illumination area by User:SyntaxTerror to all items that put off light. Torch lamp, sun lamp, wood fired generators, mech nodes, the ancient lamps from ideology, etc.
Maintenance Not a set of pages, but for things that occasionally break down and need a component to fix. A standardized format for the Summary sections is needed as well as an entry on Component. I actually can't immediately find any mentions of this mechanic on the wiki, so either its not described or its poorly interlinked/SEO'd.
Materials, resources, and Ore Materials and crafting resources have a rough standard with Acquisition/Summary (where necessary)/Usage/Analysis however there are nonstandard mat pages, and there is a lack of standardisation in Usage beyond the use of Template:Ingredient List. There also is discussion needed on how to display stuffables on stuff pages. Its possible that another template similar to Ingredient List but for stuffables (Talk to Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) if interested) is needed to display all items that can be stuffed with the material in question. Materials don't just occupy one or the other e.g. some recipes require Gold and others require any metal including gold. Ore pages also need to be split off from their materials.

Pawn stats

The following stats are the ones currently in the game as of Version/1.2.2753, several aren't even on the wiki, and many of the pages are out date and/or are not properly structured to automatically link to the relevant capacity Harakoni (talk) 05:52, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Steam Deck Improvements

  • Commands now show "button A" glyph instead of "A" label on Steam Deck.
  • When architect search bar is focused on a Steam Deck and the on-screen keyboard is visible, move gizmos up so that they're still visible.
  • Added "Keyboard mode" option on Steam Deck in case someone connects a keyboard to the SteamDeck.

Ideology Improvements

  • Drum and dance parties can be held in the "Ideology system inactive" mode. Party hard!
  • Relics system now works in "Ideology system inactive" mode. You can do the relic chase, quests, build the reliquaries, and so on.
  • Colonists no longer get upset for delaying a ritual.
  • Negative thoughts related to not having enough scarification scars do not apply at very low expectations or lower.
  • "No slaves in colony" thought does not apply at "Very low" expectations or below.
  • Ritual opportunity letters are skipped for most rituals for the first 10 days of play.
  • Adjusted inspect pane and stat readout for relics in classic mode.


  • Fix: Not all precepts are added to memes during fluid ideoligion development.


A lot of fixes and back end stuff, so hopefully it shouldn't be too bad to implement.....who am I kidding it'll still be here in 3 years Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 01:00, 7 April 2022 (UTC)

Ideology Improvements

  • Fix: Reforming a fluid ideo lists some precepts as "incompatible" when they actually aren’t.
  • Fix: Ability gizmos are still available for roles that have been removed via reformation.
  • Display incompatible issue and precept names instead of just precept names in reformation confirmation dialog.

UI Improvements

  • Show accept key command hotkey on SteamDeck.
  • Main buttons position change (change height instead of y).
  • Show a special window at the top of the screen which shows the typed in text, since SteamDeck keyboard can sometimes block the text field view.
  • Don't show tooltips when the SteamDeck keyboard is open.
  • Change quests SteamDeck icon.


  • Touch screen scrolling improvements on SteamDeck.
  • It's now possible to scroll through lists by dragging your finger on SteamDeck.
  • Holding a special "middle mouse button" button on SteamDeck, now translates left clicks into right clicks. This makes it possible to give goto orders to drafted pawns by using the touch screen.
  • Don't pan the camera if the middle mouse button is held and a colonist is selected on SteamDeck.
  • Allow more zoom on SteamDeck for better touch screen support and easier navigation.
  • Better time controls on SteamDeck, it's now possible to increase/decrease time speed with back buttons.
  • Accept key on a SteamDeck now activates the first command.

Misc Improvements

  • Tutorial now mentions the correct button names on SteamDeck.
  • Added triggered modal ConceptDefs which explain SteamDeck controls.
  • Added controller configuration button to options on SteamDeck.
  • Added an option to disable tiny fonts in options.


  • Added "Simulate using Steam Deck" debug setting.


Slowly drowning in unimplmeneted updates. Remember:

  1. Implement the change on the page/s
  2. Add it to the version history of the page/s
  3. Remove the relevant line from here.

If you can't find a good place to implement the change, leave it for later. Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 00:29, 27 February 2022 (UTC)

New feature

  • Added a new play option that allows playing with Ideology content active, but without the ideoligions system active. This is appropriate for someone on their first game, or who isn't trying to do something specific with ideoligions. Ideology content includes things like: Ancient complex quests, biosculpter technology, Gauranlen trees, ancient debris, etc.

UI improvements

  • Reworked ideoligion setup UI. Classic, custom and load buttons are now selectable elements that take effect when the player hits "next".
  • The old "classic" mode is now called "classic-like" and is one of the "mild" presets.
  • Meme tooltips now list all prevented precepts instead of just saying how many there are.
  • Randomizing precepts no longer brings up a confirmation dialog if the user has not edited precepts.
  • We now draw a thin faint box around ideoligion preset selectables, precept and meme boxes. Looks better.
  • Ideoligion building missing alerts now specify what building it is a variant of. It also displays where you can find it in the architect menu or which buildings produce it.
  • A "Show all" checkbox on ideo dialog shows all hidden precepts.
  • Updated meat eating precept and thought labels and descriptions to better match gameplay.

Tuning - General

  • Reduced mechanoid CenterDrop raid arrival mode weight at 1000+ points 3.5 -> 1.3. Mechanoids are now more likely to arrive by walking in to the map edge.
  • Reduced mechanoid RandomDrop raid arrival mode weight at 1000+ points 1.9 -> 1.3. Mechanoids are now more likely to arrive by walking in to the map edge.

Tuning - Ideoligions

  • Meme FleshPurity no longer forces the anti-biosculpting precept. This should allow players to use biosculpting to recover limbs for their purists so they don't end up being all amputees after a while.
  • Bigotry precepts don't have associated memes any more, so won't appear unless specifically configured by the player. This reduces annoyances around dealing with bigoted guests and recruits.
  • Remove the carnivore precept requirements from the Rancher meme. Reduce Rancher meme's plant work speed factor from 0.9 to 0.70. Reduce Rancher meme's impact from 3 to 2. This reduces annoyances and fiddliness with carnivore food restrictions, and balances the meme more simply, with an upside to animal raising matched by a downside to crop raising.
  • Remove the 'no recent animal slaughter' negative thought from the rancher meme, along with all associated code and content. This particular thought was too limiting for players and not worth having.
  • Remove most meme associations from vegetarian and carnivore precepts. These shouldn't appear unless player specifically configures them. This should reduce annoyances around food requirements of specific guests or recruits.


  • Added a debug tool for spawning meals with specific ingredients.
  • Improve some charity quest-related message texts.
  • In classic mode, ensure factions generated after initital world gen use the same classic ideoligion.


  • Fix: "Assign owner" tooltip for animal beds mentions humanlike owners.
  • Fix: Torture crown is automatically equipped by colonists.
  • Fix: Classic mode ideoligions don't start with some classic precepts.
  • Fix: Blindness from resurrector mech serum is not cured by biosculpter regen cycle.
  • Fix: Resurrector mech serum plays resurrection sound on item pickup, not on application.
  • Fix: Faction ideoligions are not reset on going back from colonist selection screen if the player first chooses classic, then another option.
  • Fix exploit: Player is able to claim ruined furniture on non-home maps and draw out an enemy attack on the claimed furniture. Now ruins are only claimable if there is no non-downed hostile pawn on the map.
  • Fix: Non-site psychic emanation and suppression ship parts don't have their gender randomized.
  • Fix: Shelves, chairs and stools don't have style dominance.
  • Fix: Ideoligion info available on ritual begin dialog in classic mode.
  • Fix: Loading classic mode game gives the player non-classic rituals.
  • Fix: Execution requires altar or ideogram in classic mode.
  • Fix: Inverted check when checking if a player can claim factionless buildings.
  • Fix: Jumping resets "Fire at will" toggle.
  • Fix: Research warning doesn't check for minor ideoligions.
  • Fix: Fluid ideoligion with proselytizer gains development points for all conversions, including conversions to other ideoligions.


Combat - Turrets

  • Turret ammo cost is no longer factored by difficulty.
  • Reduced uranium slug turret cost per shot from 3 uranium to 2.666.

Combat - Enemies

  • Added a way to make special per-faction raid strategy probabilities.
  • Adjusted mechanoid raid strategy probabilities so that late game they use breachers about 33% of the time instead of 90% of the time.
  • Breachers no longer want to attack passable player buildings. They only target impassable buildings like walls.
  • Selection weight of the most recent raid faction is reduced by 60% when choosing a faction for the next raid.
  • Adjusted human factions' raid strategy selection weights for slightly more variation.

Food handling

  • We now vary meal textures depending on ingredients.
  • Food restrictions are automatically applied to pawns from ideoligions that require a specific food type.
  • Meals now look differently depending on whether they were made from vegetarian, carnivore, or mixed ingredients. This will help you manage stockpiles of food for pawns with different dietary demands.
  • Meal inspect strings now display information regarding their ingredients and who would accept eating them.
  • With Ideology active, colonists will not automatically merge meals with different food kinds (i.e. meat only or veg only).
  • Meal-related thoughts now display which meal caused the thought.
  • Added food restrictions for meat or veg only meals.
  • Added special thing filters for meat and veg ingredient-filled meals.
  • Add insect meat food restriction and special things filter.
  • Add cannibal food restriction and special thing filter.
  • Don't apply ate meat thought if vegetarian eats human meat, allow strong cannibal precepts with meat eating negative precepts.

Misc improvements

  • Reworked how tree-lovers respond to the destruction of trees to be smoother and more consistent. Tree Density ideo precept now has a mood penalty directly proportional to the number of destroyed trees, with no effect from biome.
  • Biosculpter inspect string now says which pawn and cycle will be run while pawn has job to enter in progress.
  • When you r-click on a biosculpter with a pawn selected, we now show biosculpter cycles' durations in the context menu.
  • Biosculpter's inspect pane readout now notes if biosculpting cycle is accelerated by precept (i.e. if the pawn is a transhumanist).
  • Show biosculpter cycle duration for both normal and transhumanist pawns in cycle button's tooltip.
  • Buildings in non-player non-hostile maps can no longer be claimed while there are members of the owner faction active.
  • Added a loading tip describing fixed wealth mode.
  • Total tend quality info is now only displayed if the hediff disappears after a certain level of tend quality (since it's fairly useless otherwise).


  • Fix: Caravan fails to leave map if roping pawn removed or mental break while animal still in pen.
  • Fix: Newborn animals from other factions don't leave with faction.
  • Fix: High life precept description doesn't properly display mood range.
  • Fix: Less-restrictive nudism precepts are inconsistent with allowed gear.
  • Fix: Special characters on named precepts can break UI.
  • Fix: Starting packaged survival meals can be made of ingredients not allowed by ingredient filters.
  • Fix: Work speed penalty reasons formatting issues.
  • Fix: Remove gestation period stat for megaspiders and spelopedes, since they do not breed.
  • Fix: Blood from scarification is from cutter, not cuttee.
  • Fix: Psyfocus ritual reward does not recharge psyfocus to max.
  • Fix: Trade price tooltip for selling bonus when player's negotiator has ideo leader role.
  • Fix: Mortar draws interaction spot when selected.
  • Fix: If a hosted guest is imprisoned and enslaved, the gear he is wearing remains locked.
  • Fix: Meals with no ingredients cause "ate non-meat" thought.
  • Fix: Pawns grow at incorrect rate and do not reach adulthood at the age specified in relevant race defs. - User:Cheldra does this affect your work with animal growth? Must be checked before this is removed from to-do list. Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 01:15, 2 December 2021 (UTC)
  • Fix: Darkness pawns have a 'outdoors lit' accuracy debuff when targeting something in a cave.
  • Fix: Bestowing ceremony target is undraftable even after ceremony ended.
  • Fix: Hackables can be instantly hacked.
  • Fix: Raiders attacking non-aggressive roamers.
  • Fix: Vegetarian pawns get mad eating vegetarian-made pemmican.


Caravan improvements

  • Caravan pawns gathering items now haul items in their inventory to pack animals. This drastically speeds up caravan formation.
  • Allow caravan pawns to sleep in bed while packing, less dire hunger threshold before eat, and allow pawn to regain excited travel thought after draft.
  • Change caravan hauling behavior to cancel enroute instead of waiting for arrival if ticks after first item pickup timeout exceeded.
  • Added a positive thought when pawns have been preparing a caravan for a long time, to reduce pawns going insane from caravan prep.
  • Joy decreases more slowly when a pawn is preparing a caravan.
  • Colonists will now look for food in pack animal inventory if no better food sources available.
  • Colonists will grab food from pack animal to feed patients if no other food available.
  • Colonists can grab medicine from pack animals.
  • Colonists will take drugs (if assigned or need) from pack animal inventory if no other sources are available.
  • Update pen needed alert to take into account hitching post and handling skill for roping removal.

Archonexus improvements

  • Add animal pregnancy, gender, and bonded information to archonexus settlement dialog.
  • Sort items players take to new archonexus settlement more in line with usefulness.
  • Update new archonexus settlement confirm dialog always show and warn if all items or relics not selected.
  • Tweak count of items players can bring to new archonexus settlement.
  • Change archonexus item selection such that weapons and utility belts are unequipped and must be explicitly chosen.
  • Remove pawn hediffs like hypothermia and malnutrition upon new archonexus settlement.
  • Reset pawn food and rest levels when starting new archonexus colony.
  • Add animation after selecting new archonexus settlement to make moment feel more significant.

Misc improvements

  • Ideoligious buildings are no longer expected to be placed in non-home maps.
  • Display current and required total tend qualities in the tooltip for hediffs with HediffComp_TendDuration comp. (Muscle parasites, athsma, gut worms, etc...)
  • Separated "Weapon" stat category into "Weapon (melee)" and "Weapon (ranged)".
  • Pawn beauty stat is now visible even when the value is zero.
  • Precept name length is now limited.
  • New colony optimism thought is now given to all colonists after the player settles a tile and he had no home map elsewhere and when player abandons his last home map. This makes relocating much more feasible, especially in emergencies.
  • Reduced the amount of ancient junk that spawns on newly-generated maps.
  • Blind pawns who venerate trees can now sense nearby trees and enjoy their presence even without sight.
  • Update predators hunting across fences tooltip to match current functionality.
  • Ensure the trigger conditions for scarification/blinding are clear to the player.
  • Right clicking on ancient junk with drafted pawn shows option to attack.
  • Unforbid items in pawn inventory if taken by caravan from temporary map.
  • Animals with paralytic abasia can be tamed or hunted without penalty after a animal hospitatlity quest ends. Hospitality joiners and prisoners can now arrived paralyzed as well.
  • Added range values to darkness combat stats.
  • Added charity events for not helping pilgrims.

1.2.2719 and 1.1.2654 Update

1.2.2719 and 1.1.2654 Update

As always. This time around, no need to strikeout completed items- just delete them right away. PigeonGuru ( talk | contribs | assist ) 04:51, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

The 1.2 release of RimWorld adds a variety of new content and a few new systems.

There are a few major parts to this update.

New stuff: Base game

  • Raid loot generation: Previously raids would just drop whatever rewards were associated with the characters in that raid. Now, each raid generates a single core reward like a stack of drugs, medicine, jade, or plasteel. The reward is chosen semi-randomly according to the raider faction, and placed in the inventory of a few of the raiders. This allows us and users to accurately tune raid rewards, and solves issues where higher difficulties got bigger rewards.
  • Automatic caravan setup: The caravan setup screen now automatically loads enough food and medicine for the journey. This can be overridden if desired. This interface was also restructured to ask for the route first, and to clean up placement of some UI elements. Overall, caravan forming takes less effort and fewer clicks.
  • New system for handling time limits on caravan encounter maps. Previously on encounter maps, the player caravan was just automatically reformed after a certain amount of time. Now, the colonists will be detected by enemies after some time. Later, enemy reinforcements will begin arriving to attack. The player can choose when to leave, and this scenario can play out even on maps where other enemies remain (e.g. If player is executing a siege).
  • Direct button to use drugs from inventory: This makes combat drugs more usable.
  • New visual effects:
    • Improvements to orbital bombardments. You can see and hear incoming projectiles and other details are improved.

New stuff: Royalty expansion

  • Bandits set up problem causer incident: This is a new way hostiles can threaten you besides raiding you. Now, sometimes they will set up a camp near your colony from which they will harass you using some kind of problem causer device, like a weather controller or smoke spewer. You have to attack the camp and eliminate it.
  • Abasia disease incident: This random incident makes someone in the colony get paralytic abasia, which paralyzes them for a while.
  • Blood rot disease incident: This random incident makes someone in the colony get blood rot, which requires regular medical treatment for a while.
  • Abasia joiner incident: In this random incident, someone joins you, but they have paralytic abasia, so they must recover from that before they can work. It's your choice whether you want to heal them and let them join, or handle them another way.

Improvements and adjustments

  • Underground resources readout now shows what resource is in each underground cell and how many there are.
  • Monument placing feedback is improved. When you try to place a monument, now the specific reason it can't be placed is highlighted on the map and noted in a message.
  • Map generator doesn't generate little inaccessible islands any more (since they break various aspects of gameplay).
  • On the research tab, we now draw icons for techprint faction and research bench requirements (the latter as hyperlinks).

  • Sort transporter contents list so humans are unloaded first, followed by animals, then by items.
  • Pawns of the same home faction (i.e. quest lodgers) will no longer arrest each other.

  • Fix: Joy meditation can cause pawns to fall out of bed.

  • Fix: It's possible to use doors as electricity-less coolers.
  • Fix: Just claimed artificial structures don't affect nature focus objects.

  • Reworked how destroyed buildings generate slag so small buildings don't generate giant slag blooms; they'll leave steel behind instead.

  • Increase rewards per points for quests game-wide.
  • Reduce the threat points for fights generated off the home map, and increase bandit camp quest rewards.
  • Double the rate of nuzzling by animals to buff mood-oriented pets. Already done. Ickputzdirwech (talk) 08:13, 22 September 2021 (UTC)

Updates needed before 1.0


Since the contents of this section are a bit harder to document and not 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.
