I'm playing on the german translation and when I'm switching to English in the main menu, nothing happens. Well, not really nothing, but in the console appears an error:

General Discussion / How to obtain special psycasts?
December 22, 2020, 10:13:17 AM
How do I obtain special psycasts like word of trust?
I have a psylink level 1 pawn and in the past sometimes they got that word of trust psycast. Is it random, which psycast a pawn gets? Can I get the special psycasts by psytrainers?
General Discussion / Faction Leader unavailable
August 22, 2020, 04:09:40 PM
Had a tribal raid and now their faction leader is not available. In the faction oveview there is no leader named, so I don't know if he died in the raid.
Will they get a new leader, will he be available again or can I get a new one?
I had now a few downed, sick colonists who need to sleep in sickbeds for a few quadrums. When they have a need for joy and want to meditate, they get incapacitated next to their bed and need to be carried back to bed. I tried to solve this by giving them a meditation spot right next to the bed, but it didn't work out.
Bugs / [1.1.2647]Trader caravan not leaving
May 31, 2020, 09:01:53 PM
Since the update I got trader caravans that didn't leave my colony even after a week. The first one I could resolve, because it was a faction that comes with a mod that caused issues after updating, but I deactivated that mod.
But now I got another caravan sitting in my recreation room for days, sleeping on the floor. Some of them left, most of them stayed and their caravan animals are all over the map.
Not sure if this is a bug. I think it's really funny :D
I had the door of my stockpile hold open with 6 mortar shells in it, when I got sieged. I guess because of the open door, the game set my shells to forbidden and the besiegers thought it was their ammunition. The siege gunner walked all the way up, passed my colonists, waving, kindly saying "good evening, gentlemen", walked into my storage room, grabbed one shell and walked out all the way back to reload his mortar.
I love it :D

Now I closed the door. The gunners still are coming, knocking at the door 2 or 3 times and leaving without a shell.

Mod bugs / Today's patch broke my comms console
March 06, 2020, 11:06:19 AM
Since todays patch, my colonists are not able to use the comms console. The right click menu doesn't appear and the error log throws red messages. This is my error log:
Trading with caravans does work.

I'm using some mods that change traders, but even deactivating those mods didn't help. So I have no idea which of these mods broke my game. Any help would be appreciated.
General Discussion / Best animals for breeding?
March 03, 2020, 02:13:40 PM
I want to breed animals to sustain my colony with meat. What do you think is the best animal for this?
My main concern is about the food consumption compared to meat yield. Is it better to have hundreds of small animals (chickens, guinea pigs) or to have some big animals like muffalos?
Got a quest where a mechanoid cluster dropped close to my colony. Killed/destroyed it, but I didn't get the reward (+31 relationship to blue faction).
Reading in the forums at that time I noticed it is a bug Tynan will fix in the upcoming hotfixes. Since then a few hotfixes passed by. The quest is now completed for 48 days and it is still sitting in the active quest tab. Didn't get my reward yet.
Any chances to complete the quest or should I dismiss it?
Bugs / [1.1/Royalty]Duplicated language files
February 25, 2020, 07:20:55 PM
I noticed that the language selection menu in 1.1/Royalty shows some duplicated languages. It shows the language in two formats, for example:

German (Deutsch)

French (francais)

Not sure if this is by design or if it's duplicated language files in the folder. Does it matter, which one I select?
When a exotic goods trader arrives, he doesn't generate any stock and has no money. Other traders don't have this issue.
This bug occurs since I installed Vanilla Furniture Expanded Core, so I believe this is the mod that generates this bug.

Here is my error log:

I reported it on Steam to the modder but he doesn't seem to respond to bug reports at the moment. If anyone could help me to resolve this issue I would really appreciate it.
Mods / Empty messages - which mod cause them?
October 27, 2018, 03:17:36 PM
I've some trouble with one mod, but I don't know which one it is.
Sometimes I'm getting empty messages. It looks like this:

Currently loaded are:
EdB Prepare Carefully
Feed the Colonists
More Vanilla Factions
Misc. CORE
MiningCo MMS
More Trade Ships
MineItAll - Unofficial
More Vanilla Turrets
Dubs Bad Hygiene
Set Up Camp
Colony Manager
A Rimworld of Magic
Realistic Room
Defensive Machine Gun Turret Pack
ED-Laser Drill
Priority Treatment
Let's Trade!
Vegetable Garden
What the hack?!
Prisoner Ransom
Crash Landing
Tilled Soil
Nature's Pretty Sweet

I know, that's quite a few mods :D
The issue happens with my new colony whith the new mods

Dubs Bad Hygiene
Priority Treatment
Let's Trade!
Vegetable Garden
What the hack?!
Prisoner Ransom
Crash Landing
Tilled Soil
Nature's Pretty Sweet

So I believe one of them causes it. Because the message is really rare, I can't reproduce it. Had it 2 times for now.
Can anyone help me? Maybe someone had the same issue and does know which mod it is.
General Discussion / Do they use the armchair?
September 21, 2018, 09:32:24 PM
I constructed armchairs in front of my flatscreen television, but for some reason my colonists seem to stand BEHIND the armchairs.
Are they actually using them and there is only a texture missing for using furnitures or won't they use armchairs in front of TVs?

Bugs / [B19] Animals instantly rotten while toxic fallout
September 12, 2018, 06:41:42 PM
Every animal that dies during toxic fallout will be instantly rotten (at least those, who are affected by poisoning. Animals that belong to manhunter packs won't rot instantly if they are not affected by poisoning). I don't know if this goes by design for animals that die because of the fallout (perhaps Tynan decided that the meat yield during fallouts is to high), but I don't think animals that get killed by colonists should rot instantly.
Usually I had more prisoners than I wanted to recruit. But now in B19, all enemies getting killed in battle.
I only was able to make a few prisoners, and I'm in day 169. All prisoners I had were in early game. In the last 100 days I had no surviving enemy.
That said, I noticed I had more raids in B19 than in my colonies before.
How comes that only few enemies survive? Do all weapons deal more damage now? Or is there a coded survival chance for enemies that was lowered in B19?
Bugs / [B19] Doors can be build on water
September 06, 2018, 10:18:49 AM
You can construct doors and autodoors on shallow and chest deep moving water, even when no bridge is constructed under it.
Edited: You can also build other things like furniture and Mini Turrets on water. I don't think, this is intended?

Bugs / [B19] What is this? File "harmony.log" on desktop
September 01, 2018, 03:52:02 PM
I played B19 yesterday, and when I looked at my desktop just now, I found a unknown file named "harmony.log".
In one line I read "RimWorld" and it has to do something with pawns and damage, so I think it somehow belongs to RimWorld. But what is this file and how does it get there? Is it important or can I get rid of it?

I've installed the game on Steam, so there shouldn't pop up any files on my desktop, right? At least, it has never done before and I hope it won't do so in the future...
I got into a really interesting situation today.
I had visitors from a friendly faction on my map, when a manhunter pack of rhinos showed up. The rhinos killed one of the visitors and downed the two others. For the killed visitor I got -5 relationship, so I concluded it would be better if the two others would survive it, so I rescued them.
Bad decision, as I noticed soon.
One of them had asthma and cancer and as soon as he could move, he wanted to leave. He had a move speed of 31% and was starving (he even didn't wait until my doctor fed him). And so he left my colony... Well, not really. With this condition he clearly never would make it to the edge of the map. He made it to my entrance and then decided to go berserk on my colonists because he was very hungry. WTF? Really? I would have fed him, but he did leave too quickly and ill.
In selfdefense one of my guys shot him and he was downed again (he wasn't even killed!). In the same second his faction declared war on me. If I would have left him for bleeding out, I would've only lost 5 relationship. Now I have minus 80!

What the hell does this game want from me? Because I rescued a friendly from bleeding out, he attacks me and his faction declares war on me, because I shot him in DEFENSE?!? Is the game saying I should let friendlies in need die rather then rescue them? Isn't this a really strange view on morale?
Tynan!!! At least give me a chance!  :'(
General Discussion / Hidden stashes in early game
April 27, 2018, 04:55:02 PM
I am a few days in my new colony and I got the hidden stash event with loot I definitely want to have. Easy, I thought, it's really early game, there will not be much danger there... And so I did send 2 of my 5 colonists to get the stash.
Well, it didn't work out well. The stash was guarded by 10 pigs, that instantly attacked my 2 guys. I only had repeating rifles and soon my colonists were downed.

So, is there any point in going after the stashes in early game? Do you go after every of them, no matter how long you are in or do you wait until you have a few more colonists and weapons with high DPS?
I'm actually playing with Cassandra Classic on medium difficulty.
In several playthroughs I noticed that the beginning can be challenging with raids every few days. But now, where I'm 212 days in the game there are so much less raids. I think the last one is weeks ago. My colony is rich and big and prepared to fight, but no one wants to come. Shouldn't Cassandra progressively increase the difficulty?
