unlimited power and requiring little sustinence to operate. They deem all races other than themselves
to be somewhat below them and believe that living on a rimworld is a fate worse than death.


Special Trait: ; Intolerance. When this android's mood is too low for too long. There is an increasing chance of mental break and the android entering a murderous rage.
To add to that: this trait restricts the android's mental break types to only those that cause bodily harm. Such as bezerk and sadistic rage.

Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Canute on June 11, 2018, 04:08:03 AM
Hi Atla5,
finaly at the forum too, thanks.

- It don't made sense that the basic replace are below 100% eff..  When you can produce new androids with 100% parts, you should be able to produce 100% replacements too.
You can move the Basic replacement before the T1 androids research, to craft cheap replacements. Special for the T2 androids would like to have 100% replacements since they can't get adv. replacements.

- do you know Dub's hygiene mod ? He recently changed the need for his mod for non human races.
Since andoids use Bioreactor and not Matter to energy reactor, they need to leave the organic waste somewhere, and they have some sense for beauty or they wouldn't be able to craft art, so they want be clean too.
Could you take a look to enable these need's for them. Maybe ask Dubwise about it.

What do you think about to change the android internal energy production from a Bioreactor into a chemfuel generator ?
They need to eat chemfuel.
And the M.U.F.F. Unit become the Bioreactor and produce Chemfuel like Boomalope's. Ofcouse the scenario should add one of the M.U.F.F. to the starting instead of food.
But i think this would be hard to implement, since chemfuel don't got a nutri. value. It would require some good c# coding skill.

Ouh-May-God.
This mod is incredible like; srsly I can not belive that I see something that amazing.!
~+ many to respect!
[ I'm 'bout to test this soon, but it looks like some requirements in resources for assembling a Robot is not that expensive. Goona test it out; but that hard-end-game stuff should be more challenging 'cause of the high-benefits potential.

Unfortunately doesn't seem compatible with Prepare Carefully. Shame, as it looks like the best android mod available.

I don't got trouble with Prepare Carefully, worked fine at my side.

Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Spaps on June 14, 2018, 07:57:06 AM
Now that's interesting. I thought it's Prepare Carefully, because when I launched Rimworld with AT and other mods, when I click Prepare Carefully it just throws up errors and doesn't go to the PC screen.

However, when I disable AT, it runs just fine.

I'll try and run the mod with PC and other mods one by one, to find any incompatibilities.

#################
EDIT: Nope, it's definitely AT. Launched the game with only two mods - PC and AT and it still doesn't let me do anything.

I wouldn't await much responce from the author/poster, i think he is only active on steam/discord.
But since he develop this mod at daily base, i just would download it again and try it again.
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: ATLA5 on June 14, 2018, 10:16:50 AM
Well that's odd because prepare carefully and my mod work fine for me, did you remember to install humanoid alien races and load that before my mod?
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Spaps on June 14, 2018, 10:54:51 AM
Alright, I'm a massive idiot, I'm sorry. I've downloaded the Alien Races Pregnancy addon instead of the main mod. Now it works. Apologies.

Now that I played with the mod for a bit, I have to say that it's absolutely outstanding, tried a few robot (android) mods before but this one is the best. And the best looking, too! I don't really like the humanlike appearance of other mods, this one fixes it by having very nice (tiered) system of different looking, actual, bots.

One thing though, did you think about bots, instead of eating, to charge their batteries, using a very inefficient charger at first, having to charge for like 10 hours a day? Maybe as a replacement for the biogenerator?
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: ATLA5 on June 14, 2018, 11:26:13 AM
Already working on an energy need system as I speak.
It should allow the androids to hook themselves up to batteries
Get power from consumables
and have special implants / upgrades that passively generate power.
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Spaps on June 14, 2018, 01:15:44 PM
Hmm, I don't think an android should be able to passively generate power, unless it was from direct sunlight or maybe a small amount of Uranium, unless you're thinking endgame. But I can see a robot using an emergency battery pack as a consumable to get some juice, good idea!

Furthermore, I think it'd be easier for you to create a bed-like power station for androids only, that would need to be connected to a power grid, and the android would have to stay there until it's charged. And downing androids when out of power, pawn would need to carry it to the power station?
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: ATLA5 on June 14, 2018, 01:54:42 PM
My idea was a series of upgrades that can extend the max amount of power, passively generate it. Decrease or increase discharge rate

Items such as small reactors, higher efficiency bio-reactors. inbuilt batteries, nuclear reactors. Radio-Isotope Generators and such.
It wouldn't just be constricted to just one or two items but a whole line of tiered items :)

That sounds good to me, and is the way that I'd prefer for it to be done. Allows a whole range of technological ranges for the Androids to generate and store power with.
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Spaps on June 15, 2018, 11:15:43 AM
This is actually a very good idea! And I presume the Radio-Isotope generator would consume uranium and would be the most efficient of all, but the nuclear one would eat lots of uranium and give you a lot of energy in exchange for being unstable (getting the reactor damaged, say shot) and exploding?
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Canute on June 15, 2018, 12:22:55 PM
An Radio-Isotope generator or RTG can't explode. You just got radioation on damage.
But that should be harmless for androids, but social interaction with non-andoids could be critical (toxic buildup).
And it don't need to be refueled for a long time.

If ATLA5 want change it that Android's need energy my idea are.
They need to rest at a recharge station or to let them access the powergrid direct but with percent failure of a short cicruit.
Further battery upgrades lower these rest/recharge time.
Ultimate update would be Vario power cell.

M.U.F.F. will get the Bio-generator/convertor and generate Chemfuel out of orgnics.

Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Spaps on June 15, 2018, 07:01:03 PM
I didn't say anything about the RTG exploding though, the Nuclear one would.
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: Canute on June 16, 2018, 03:03:32 AM
True, but a complete nuclear fission reactor would be impossible to shink so it would fit into a humanoid or animal body.
But when the research advance and they manage it that material can absorb gammaray like photovoltaic absorb light to produce, they can create high efficient, low maintaince power cells.

There was a tiny mod in A17 with a small RTG. Mechanoids dropped 1 item on disassemble. The mechanoid drop mechanic was cool but the graphics were poor. Can't find the mod link

basically added the rare ingredient (power core) and the recipe for that portable generator. Could not craft those RTG without killing mechanoids (3 mech for each generator, and gave out just enough power for a drill)

Since that mod seems to be dead, it would be a good addition for the Androids
Title: Re: [B18] Android Tiers and More
Post by: ultra4 on June 18, 2018, 10:38:23 PM
on something different, just noticed... the disassemble mechanoid recipe has the androids in its list, but no pawns will use them. BUT.. "harvest organs post mortem (https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1204502413)"... got 2 component and 10 plasteel, lol? or working as intended?

Why do androids eat and sleep? Its really annoying, the whole idea of them gets destroyed, they are supposed to be precious rewards for hard grind or lucky acquirement. In misc. robots problem has been solved by "converting" sleeping into recharging and it makes sense. Could you disable food need for now? Before you figure out the better way, it would be way better, it sucks that they eat my best meals prepared with love for my colonists..

Quatrosss,
why didn't you even read the few postings here ?
Then you would see all robot's of this series got bio-reactor's to increase their survival rate outside civilisation.

I didn't played the B19 version yet, so i can't say how he enhanced the robots so far.
Btw.  B19 non-steam download link on his steam page.

Btw. the Androids

When anyone want to try out the B19 of this mod and geting XML error's on startup.
It is a problem with Alien Race.
Download the Alien Race master instead of the latest release from github.

Is this thread still monitored for bugs? There seems to be a conflict with the mod that adds the rottweiler /my guess is Vanilla Animals Expanded - Cats and Dogs/.

The bug was hilarious though. Upon a raid I noticed that the raiders stopped to attack a MUFF unit. How strange, I thought, as I started the game with only a dog and did not acquire more animals. Did it join randomly? Even more strange was that the name of this MUFF unit - "Rin" - seemed familiar...

So I started looking for the rottweiller. She was nowehere to be found and not listed on the animals tab. However I knew that one of the colonists was training her, so I checked under her social tab. "Rin" is currently off the map. Rin? So the game engine assigned the same random name to two of my pets or what? I still couldn't believe what may be obvious to you now.

But as a raider shot the MUFF unit to death, she instantly transformed back into a rottweiler. Funniest shit I've ever seen.
