Title: Mars X For Rimworld
Post by: Run And Hide Gamer on March 05, 2021, 10:03:14 PM
I noticed there was an updated version of Mars X released back in December and saw there were no recent videos of the mod on Youtube .

So today I have posted the first video of Mars X on my gaming channel.

You can find it here

Yesterday I posted a mission designed to test the processes and procedures the lunar crew would follow in order to set up a base on the lunar surface.

The simulation test was a success and a crew of 3 astronauts has launched from Earth on their way to the Moon.

The crew is made up of Army Chief Engineer Sliwa, Rocket Engineer Chappell and Technical Engineer Brewer and their ship Enterprise  (not Star Trek related) will eagle land on the Moon in a few hours time.

The first day of their mission will be posted online in a few hours time at

I had read that the moon side of the mod was still being worked on so there could be an issue there...... ran into another issue where I had steel available in the stockpile but the astronauts stopped building as they couldn't find the steel. When I tried moving the steel to another stockpile it told me there were no places to move the steel. Still  looking at what happened there.

The next chapter of the Mars X Story has been filmed and will be on the Run and Hide Gamer youtube channel sometime over the next hour or two.

The good news is that I have resolved the issue with the stockpiles and that is explained in the video.

Traveling into space is extremely dangerous and the crew sent up to the space station, the Moon or Mars are trained to solve the many problems that may endanger the lives of the crew.

This is seen in the various Rimworld and Mars X stories that you will see. For your crew to survive you need to be monitoring everything looking for the first sign of trouble.

This video is an example...... during this video a huge problem has been discovered and the crew will need to solve it quickly or they will all die on the lunar surface.

Keep in mind you're playing an unoffical release... a few bugs may occur.
But this mod is amazing! I'm following RW since 1.0 release and this is one of the most expansive mods I've encountered so far... I'm amazed that I've never heard of it while it's existing since alpha 16^^
Gonna play it ! Thanks

When NASA sent astronauts to the moon in the 60s and 70s any number of bugs could happen that could risk the mission. With this mod, I am treating it the same way because when something goes wrong my crew then needs to work out a quick solution....as happened with the stockpile issues.

However the new problem encountered in today's video will be a real challenge for them to resolve.

If anyone is interested, I have added the first chapter of the Mars X mission in the story section of the forum. Each chapter will be added daily following the upload of the video.

Another video has been recorded with the crew from Mars X and will finish upload in the next hour or two and will be available on my channel at

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCi7sHS4Lzp6Lh3p0xu0WQdQ/videos

Mission Commander Pearson, Technical Engineer Robbie and Chief Engineer Tate are facing a serious crisis as Hypoxia affects each of them and threatens to end the Lunar mission early.

Time is critical for them to find the reason for dropping oxygen levels. If they can not solve this problem then the future mission to Mars is in jeopardy.

The new video has been uploaded to the channel and today our brave crew has to battle the growing problem of Hypoxia.

Will the crew find out why the life support system failing?

Yes I noticed that....there was another series in Spanish as well from 3 months ago with the 2020 version of the mod...... this being the reason I decided to put a gameplay season of Mars X on my channel. It is a little difficult to learn how to play the mod when the video is not in your language.

For those who are following the Mars X mission in the story section of the forum, I have just posted Chapter 2 which goes behind the scenes of what happened with the Hypoxia situation and talks about another hazard that Commander Pearson and the crew face on this mission.

I tried Rimstory but it was coming up with errors when I installed the latest version from GitHub.

For a mission to the Moon to be a success, available resources need to be managed tightly. Today the crew notices one type of resource needs to be managed quickly.

Hi, thanks for trying my mod. I suspect you downloaded the master code branch which is indeed not playable adhoc - I'll have a look on that. Have you tried the official release? I've tested it with marsX and it worked fine.
