Ideoligion

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Ideoligions are both a system of mechanics introduced by, and the primary focus of, the Ideology DLC. They allow colonies to introduce a variety of new restrictions and capabilities to change gameplay, as well as new interactions with other factions.

Mechanics

When starting a game, after choosing the world tile, the player can choose their starting ideoligion. There are four options: disable the ideoligion system, choose one of the preset ideoligions, or choose to form your own - if you choose to create your own, you have the choice between creating a fluid or static ideoligion. You additionally have the ability to customise the ideoligions of the factions, within some restrictions on the memes depending on their type of faction.

Once the game begins, you can view your ideoligions and those of other factions by clicking on the lightbulb icon in the bottom right.

Forming an ideoligion

Forming an ideoligion begins with selecting a structure. Structures typically determine the default style and randomized content of your ideoligion, and may unlock certain rituals, but have no effect on what memes can be chosen. You can choose up to 4 memes, which establish the practical foundation of your ideoligion. The impact of memes varies across three tiers, with some not affecting gameplay much and others altering it drastically. Certain memes may unlock or require certain styles, rituals, and other features in the same vein as structures do. The primary effect of memes comes from precepts, however, as many memes similarly unlock or require specific precepts, which perform most of the gameplay alteration available within the expansion. Precepts can affect gameplay in a number of ways to varying degrees, as they change your colonists' expectations in accordance with the beliefs they represent. For example, an ideoligion with the Guilty and Animal Personhood memes requires that the precepts for charity and animal slaughter are set to some form of requirement and disapproval, respectively; meaning your colonists will gain a mood debuff if beggars are turned away or a colony animal is slaughtered.

Beyond memes and precepts, there are also styles, roles, rituals, buildings, weapon and clothing preferences, venerated animals, and rules for types of hair and tattoo. Styles determine, in conjunction with structures, the overall "theme" of your ideoligion both in description and aesthetics; for example, a Christian-structured ideoligion will feature "God" as its sole deity and its artistic members will only produce Christian-themed sculptures. Roles serve a more practical purpose, and most require a specific meme to be unlocked; but every ideoligion will have a role for its leader and moral guide. Colonists assigned a specific role may be granted certain bonuses and powers, though often at the cost of being more difficult to keep happy and being unable to perform certain types of work. Rituals are specific social events of varying forms and themes which, depending on their quality, may provide a mood buff or debuff to the colonists participating in them. Successful, high-quality rituals may also grant an additional reward such as faction goodwill or the addition of a new pawn to your colony. Buildings may be required by certain rituals, such as the symbol burning ritual; there must to be a symbol to burn, of course. Otherwise, however, buildings are primarily an aesthetic choice and the only required buildings are one place of worship and a seat for it, such as an ideogram and kneel sheet.

Fluid ideoligions

Fluid ideoligions are ideoligions that allow for reformation once a sufficient number of development points are obtained. This process allows for the development of the ideoligion over time and in response to in-game circumstances or progress. Fluid ideoligions must start with only a single meme, though more may be added via reformation. They are otherwise formed in the same way as static ideoligions.

Every time you complete a ritual or convert a person to your ideoligion, you gain development points. The number of development points gained by ritual can vary with the quality of said ritual: a terrible ritual awards no points, a decent ritual awards 1 point, and an exceptional ritual awards 2 points; some rituals can even award 3 points if you are lucky. Converting someone (without a conversion ritual) awards 1 point.

With enough development points, you can reform the ideoligion to change structure, alter memes, or change styles, and to change precepts, roles, rituals, buildings, relics, animals, apparel, and pawn appearance, as well as the ideoligion's color, symbol, name, and narrative. If changing memes, a single meme may be added or removed with each reformation, though the total number of memes remains capped at a maximum of 4, and you cannot remove your last meme. If changing styles, existing styles can be removed or changed freely, while one single new style may additionally be added, up to the maximum of 3 styles. Other changes are unlimited, within the limits imposed by structure and memes.

The current point total is displayed just below "styles" in the ideoligion tab. The first reformation costs 10 development points. You can reform your ideoligion many times, although each time your points are reset to 0 and the cost goes up by 2 points - thus, the goal moves from 10, to 12, to 14, and so on, to a maximum of 20. Activities that provide points will list them in their information.

Development points cannot be "stockpiled" beyond those needed for reformation. For example, if you need 10 development points for a reformation and already have 10 points, any further points earned will be lost.

Preset ideoligions

If you choose the "Classic-like" ideoligion, your colonists with be given an ideoligion with the Individualist meme, a random structure, Astropolitan culture, and precepts reminiscent of base game Rimworld.

The ideoligion will have the following precepts:

It will have a leader and a moral guide, a funeral ritual and two other random rituals, and a random altar or ideogram, as well as 2-3 random relics.

Conversion

Colonists and other pawns of different ideoligions can be converted to whatever ideoligions the player has access to. Imprisoned pawns can be converted by reducing certainty in the prisoner menu, as one might reduce resistance. Other pawns will typically have to be converted using a moral guide for the relevant ideoligion, either through the use of a conversion ritual, the Convert ability, or - most likely - both. Since moral guides cannot be selected without a minimum number of colonists of that ideoligion present, this route may be difficult for players attempting to cultivate a multi-ideoligion colony.

Conversion attempts can also happen passively as part of normal social interaction, as governed by the converter's Ideoligion Spread Chance.

Once a pawn's certainty is reduced to 0 by a conversion attempt, the pawn will be converted to the ideoligion of the converter.

Certainty loss from conversion attempts of all types is scaled by the converter's Conversion Power and the Global Certainty Loss Factor of the convertee. Additionally, a pawn will lose less or more certainty if they have a trait that agrees or conflicts with the memes of the converter's ideoligion. For example a Transhumanist ideoligion will have greater difficulty converting a Body Purist, but less difficulty converting a Body Modder.

Lost certainty is regained at a rate of ??[Value Needed] per day, and scales with the Mood of the pawn with happier pawns gaining

Certainty loss = 6% * Conversion Power of the Converter * If Converter is Moral Guide (x2) * Global Certainty Loss Factor of Convertee * Relic Conversion Power Factor * Trait/Meme Agreeableness * AI Storyteller's Low pop conversion boost multiplier

Structure

Choosing your structure affects which symbols the game uses for your ideoligion. It does not affect gameplay.

Abstract theist.png Abstract theist The god(s) do not have physical form, but are everywhere at once. They know all, and can do anything. Their will defines the moral structure of the universe.

Styles

An ideoligion can have 0-3 associated styles. People belonging to that ideoligion will apply those styles when making specific items. Colonists will get thoughts based on the styles of the objects around them, depending on their ideoligion's diversity of thought precept either for having surroundings match or not match their ideoligion. Neutral surroundings produce no thought. If multiple styles of an ideoligion affect the same object, left-most applies. Note that building appearance in the construction menu will be based on your primary ideoligion, but the actual building might be different if built by a pawn of a different ideoligion.

Style dominance

Pawns consider objects with style dominance within 27 tiles outdoors, or in the same room regardless of distance. An item is considered "uniform" if pawn's ideoligion can build it, and "diverse" otherwise, regardless of the actual style: for example, a totemic table will be considered diverse for an ideoligion with morbid and totemic styles, because the morbid style overrides totemic tables. If the total style dominance of uniform or diverse objects is at least 10 more than the other category, pawns will get an appropriate thought; the actual style of the object does not matter for stacking either: a morbid slab and a totemic slab in the same room will be uniform for an ideoligion with both styles, cancel each other out and give no thought for an ideoligion with one of those styles, and diverse for an ideoligion with neither.

An ideoligion with no styles would still consider its own buildings (such as ideogram), but not ritual seats, to be uniform.

Clothing, whether worn or placed on the ground, and uninstalled objects have no impact on style dominance.

Precepts

Associated precepts have a chance to appear if a meme is present, but can still be removed if not required.

Some precepts are available to all ideologies, some require at least one of the enabling memes, and some may be unavailable if certain memes are present.

Present in every ideoligion

There are 19 issues (precept categories) that are present in every ideoligion and may not be removed. However, their level may be changed. They include "basic" precepts from the base game, used in "Play Classic".

Relics

Relics are objects revered by your ideoligion. To obtain them you need to go through a series of quests. If you take control of them, they give various boni to your colony. When placed in a Reliquary, pilgrims of your Ideoreligion will visit your colony to pay reverence to the relic. Mood penalty for lost or destroyed <link to mood page here>

Buildings

Ideoligions can add special statue-like buildings that will be required when there are 3 or more pawns of the ideoligion in your faction and their expectations reach moderate or higher. These buildings must be placed in a room of at least 25 area, and must not contain beds or workstations. The larger building will also require 4 columns to be in the room. Both buildings may be placed in the same room. Placing the buildings in a room which doesn't meet the requirements will give a "[building name] disrespected" negative moodlet.

Weapon preferences

Ideoligion can have one or several pairs of noble and despised weapons types. Weapon pairs can't be combined if they overlap.

Wielding a noble weapon grants +3 mood while wielding a despised one grants -5.

Killing any pawn (?) with a noble weapon grants +3 mood for 1 day while using a despised one to attack anything - including objects - grants -5 for 2 days.

Apparel preferences

If more than 60% of a colonist's apparel is their favorite color or the color of their ideoligion, they will gain a small mood buff.

The color of the ideoligion can be set at creation.

Xenotype preferences

Up to three Xenotypes can be selected as preferred xenotypes, including baseliner and a custom xenotype. If at least one is selected then a positive mood will be generated if every colonist is a preferred type, but a negative scaling mood if even one colonist is not a preferred type.

If Sanguophage is not a preferred type and at least one other preferred type is set, colonists will refuse Sanguophage xenogerm implantation and quests that award Sanguophage xenogerm will fail to give the reward.

Venerated animals

This animal is considered by believers to hold a special spiritual or moral status, which means it must be venerated and may never be harmed.

— Description

An ideoligion can have up to 18 venerated animals.

Colonists will not hunt or attack venerated animals with ranged weapons (but will attack them in melee), unless the animal is in manhunter mood. They will not slaughter tame venerated animals.

Colonists will butcher venerated animals without any issue, but will refuse to eat their meat or any meal made with it (including meals stacked together), even when starving. They can be manually ordered to eat such food, but will get -8 mood for 5 days. If a colonist that venerates an animal is unconscious, other colonists (of any ideoligion) will not feed them such food, and cannot be manually ordered to do so. Colonists take no issue using leather, wool, milk, or eggs of the venerated animal.

Colonists will get -5 mood for 5 days if a tame venerated animal dies for any reason. Releasing tame animals is fine.

Colonists will get a positive thought for the amount of tame venerated animals in the colony, depending on their total body size divided by the total number of colonists: +2 for 1 or more, +3 for 2 or more, +4 for 4 or more, and +5 for 6 or more. In case of multiple venerated animals, all their body sizes are added together, producing a single thought. All colonists are counted for this, but only those of an appropriate ideoligion will get the thought.

Venerated animals are twice as easy to tame.

Hair and tattoos

An ideoligion has associated hairstyles, beards, and tattoos. Specific hairstyles and tattoos may be allowed for men, women, or either. Some of those may be more or less common.

Newly spawned paws of an ideoligion will always have matching appearance.

If pawn's hairstyle, beard, or tattoo do not match what their ideoligion allows (usually as a result of a conversion), they will try to use styling station on their free time to automatically change their looks. They can also be sent to adjust their appearance manually.
