Ideas / Re: Do we really need rimkids?
« on: December 13, 2016, 12:02:32 PM »
Sure it might be logical and practical but it just seems wrong to strip a person of their childhood. Imagine waking up one day in a tube and there's these two strangers saying they're your mom and dad and then forces you clean up a bunch of people's rooms.

Your empathy is understandable. But that is the life of the rim, it goes to the extreme, you don't get the glitterworld life. And you realize some pawns have childhood of being, iirc, test subjects? So for some colonists, theird childhood is already bad. You know kids don't have to stay in artificial womb all the time, they can come out sometimes to have time with their parents lol After their body is in adulthood they are still their parents children, right? Let's be imaginative here.

As of education, I am sure you've seen the movie Matrix right? Getting educated in simulated world doesn't sound too unrealistic in RW.

Help / Raiders with power armors and lvl 20 shooting?
« on: December 12, 2016, 04:00:11 PM »
Just saw a post in suggestion board. Having raiders with power armors and lvl 20 shooting sounds like indeed extreme. This sounds entirely moddable. Any thought?

Now that you mention it, it would be cool if (on rare occasions) you were attacked by one or two highly trained assassins with exceptional AI.
Rather than their goal being to slaughter your entire colony (which could feel punishing rather than challenging), perhaps they were hired to kill a very specific colonist, or steal a high value piece of art.
Just a thought.
interesting idea.

That actually sounds really interesting! My apologies for the lack of initial response, I seem to have missed your post. But, once I've got my results published from vanilla-only, I'd really like to collaborate with you to see how the empirical results compare to the theoretical ones. If nothing else, it'd be a good exercise in finding where I went wrong with my calculations. :p

As for your mod itself, that looks really useful in-game. I usually stick religiously to vanilla-only, but I might bend my rules for this one. This will be especially useful in finding practical values such as colonist work-per-tile for crops, or animal resource consumption per unit of output. (E.g., how much hay is used in producing a unit of wool for an Alpaca?) I'm definitely going to have to give your mod a look once I've finished gathering my vanilla data.
I accidentally stumbled upon this post again while randomly strolling through this forum. :D
So basically this forum doesn't send notification from post replies, so I'll suggest if it's possible you can pm me or respond to my mod posts, as I've done tremendous amount of code just in the past 3 weeks since your reply. Now users can create graphs dynamically, show a table of stats, do basic text displaying, and taking notes.

TLDR; Let's not be stuck with the idea of raising kids "traditionally," could we? At space age, we can have artificial wombs, which will allow children to grow at hyper speed, this rids the needs of raising and teaching kids. In addition, having frequently dropped pods and wanderer join don't make sense logically, let along those people are often our colonists' relatives, LOL. The game begins with a crash-landing situation, this should be pretty rare, or else space technologies are just not reliable to a ridiculous degree. Having rim-kids this way can be a reasonable way to have families and relatives in Rimworld.

Thanks a lot mugenzebra, that is exactly what I wanted.
You're welcome!

I just added simple note taking capability. Just download and install the mod and go to Estimator tab, then Note sub-tab. Your note is saved upon saving, and reload upon restarting your game. I tested it, it works fine, you can try it out and if there's any problem let me know. Other sub-tabs are non-functioning besides Graph sub-tab.

My idea is to integrate note-taking capability into my analytics mod:
which eventually will generate analytics report

choose a pawn, if it dies, delete your save. if other pawn hates that pawn, arrest it, kill it, do whatever.

Mods / Re: Mod for allowing doctors treating themselves?
« on: December 02, 2016, 12:05:46 AM »

currently pawns unable to just put piece of cloth on wound to stop minor bleeding...

We gotta start by taking small step right? And it sounds to me self-treatment might not be as simple as it sounds. How about having a button, which upon press will start bandaging the pawn itself. My gut feel is bypassing the job giver system is quicker.

The soulution would be making a new recipe, defining that the doctor is also the patience and a workgiver that makes it a priority.
I am looking files in RecipeDefs folder and couldn't find anything. But looking at Jobs_Work.xml seems interesting, particularly I found
Code: [Select]
   <!--============= Medical ===============-->

    <reportString>feeding TargetA to TargetB.</reportString>

    <reportString>tending to TargetA.</reportString>

And looking at JobDriver_TendPatient.cs I found
Code: [Select]
public class JobDriver_TendPatient : JobDriver
private const int BaseTendDuration = 600;

protected Thing Medicine
return base.CurJob.targetB.Thing;

protected Pawn Deliveree
return (Pawn)base.CurJob.targetA.Thing;
This seems to be the starting point, but I don't see anything directly related to if the pawn can self-target itself and give itself treatment.

brainstorm: and from a frozen dead body. I think it's reasonable, and it will not cause mood debuffs.

Mods / Mod for allowing doctors treating themselves?
« on: November 29, 2016, 04:17:11 PM »
I wonder has anyone thought of this yet. If everyone else is downed or only one colonist is left, the situation can be dangerous if he gets injured. Little injuries should be allowed to be bandaged by the pawn itself , and self surgery should be allowed for exceptionally skilled doctors. But the speed of the treatment should be slowed.  How would this mod be approached to code? I couldn't find anything after searching 'right click' in source code.
