    I am totally making a psychopath colony and running it as a human parts warehouse. Really wish you could harvest parts from the dead, as long as they were fresh.

    maybe combined with a cannibal frozen wasteland colony.

    This was my last colony exactly, and it works perfectly (except that part about subjects dying and leaving all those wonderful organs to waste).

    The only downside, as should be obvious, is that finding any other colonists who are also psychotic is pretty rare, and so your colony either has to stay super small (not so bad if you have robots), or they all get completely addicted to the drugs they take to make the bad memories go away, resulting in lots of lung and liver disease.

    nah just set the start options that everyone gets the psychopath trait.

    I think I found a bug... I saved an alcoholic, but then when I loaded the game the next time they were apparently addicted to go-juice. Anyone else had this?

    My standard organ harvesting is:

    If I wanted a social training dummy, I'll harvest both eyes, one lung, one kidney and stop there. They're not escaping if they can't see.

    I'm horrified but also impressed.

    What is this I don't even.

    APPARENTLY, though I haven't tested it yet, the way you can harvest organs without actually pissing off your colonists that you've harvested said organs from some random person who up until 5 minutes ago were trying to kill them, boo hoo hoo those glass hearts errr hummm what was I saying?

    Oh yes, the way you can harvest organs without incurring the mood malus is to implant an artificial/bionic replacement which will pop out the original organ assuming it isn't damaged in some way. Then you can remove the bionic implant because it isn't considered as harvesting natural organs. This then means you could technically remove multiple critical organs from the same source but if you're transplanting an artificial organ so you can remove multiple organics, you're not exactly gaining any money because the moment you remove that artificial/bionic replacement they're going to die and you lose anything that's left in the donor.

    So I was poking through the Steam store last week and this showed up on my radar. And now I'm watching streams of it on Twitch and rationalizing buying it (I haven't jumped yet......yet).

    Also, holy fuck, there are apparently a WORLD of mods out there for this game.

  • TheKoolEagleTheKoolEagle Registered User regular
    Yes it is extremely customizeable, and also just generally a great game. The guy is still pouring work into it as well which is cool. Easily worth the $30 price tag.

    Speaking of food, is there a way to make Packaged Survival Meals? Making pemmican for a long trip in orbital drop pods, power armour and charge rifles seems... backwards.

    Fun time last night! An enemy siege drop-podded right in here:
    1761EB305C157D0CD39BED9797A261C1CF23D333

    Cue mortars, then fires, then running around and screaming.

    Not in the base game. You can buy them from traders, then like, save them in a forbidden room until you need them.

    Or you can install one of the several mods that extends cooking with things like canned meals or straight up craftable survival meals

    The only mod I've ever bothered with is Prepare Carefully. Might be time for me to get going proper with that.

    Everything: Konphujun(#1458)
  • DelmainDelmain Registered User regular
    I don't even use Prepare Carefully anymore, I use Validate Start. It lets me go "I want to have a shooter, a miner, a constructor, a grower, and a researcher, but I don't really care about everything else".

    I like it, it feels less like cheating, since all it's doing is rerolling all your colonists over and over until it gets a combo that fulfills the requirements you give it.

    Those were literally the only thing I would use Prepare Carefully for anyway. I don't want uber-colonists, I just want colonists where the start of the game isn't a hideously tedious grind because I didn't spend half an hour rerolling colonists with the basic necessary skillset.

    yeah, the bonus food all requires basically a dedicated cook because it's multi-step process.

    the blended leather and cloth stuff (you don't grow cloth anymore, you grow devilstrand or cotton that has to be processed into devilstrand cloth or cloth or whatever) is cool

    Stir Fry and Stews are direct upgrades to Fine/Lavish meals due to the blood filtration and manipulation bonuses they give. I typically start with simple meals/salads until my cook gets to the skill level required to bulk make stir fries then swap over. Stew is a little bit harder since it requires high nutrition meats/non-meats as it has a 4/4 nutrition requirement which is 80 of each if you were using standard 0.05 nutrition resource so you're really going to be needing the vegetable garden stuff.

    In my current soon to be retired colony (due to breaking some mods. Whooops!) I had 10 9x9 fields, 4 of them are full density fields while the remaining 6 were 1/3 density for tree plantations. I had those 4 full density fields rotating to whatever crop I needed which was usually beans, cotton, healroot, tea, coffee, sugar etc... The tree plantations were fruit trees like apples, peaches, oranges.

    You need more room for the trees because they have lower yields/time and of course they take up more space. However their advantage is that they're much lower work required for the harvests. You just have a huge load of stuff for your haulers once the crop does come in.
    Beans are used to make Tofu, which is a higher nutrition value meat substitute, so just having Tofu available is already going to allow you to make stews since you can whack in 80 rice if you want because there's three resource spots when cooking.

    But regardless, VG makes it so much easier to create a self-sufficient colony that doesn't require a lot of animal keeping and the waste associated with that. I almost never need to bum rush hydroponics nowadays though I'd still use hydroponics if I'm space limited and/or I can't get a reasonably sized greenhouse established.

    A fair number of the more prominent Rimworld streamers have been using Make War Not Love since it helps to keep the game from chugging at higher levels of colony ....maturity?

    Basically, any time there is an interaction between colonists, the game remembers that action for everyone in the colony (I'm sure I'm saying this wrong).

    It apparently makes recruitment a bit more difficult, but the mod's writer is supposedly working on fixes for that.

    So people who mod the hell out of the game: What mods do you think are necessary for a beginning player or should they stick with the base for a bit? I generally don't mod my game, but I'm going to edit the OP with some recommended mods. I want to make sure to separate out the crazy ones for advanced players though to not overwhelm a beginner.

    pumpkin is cool because you can make dough using it instead of egg

    so you can make dough entirely from growable things: pumpkin instead of egg, soymilk instead of milk, flour, and sugar
