Outdated / Re: [MOD] (Alpha 8) Project Armory (v.2.17)
January 08, 2015, 07:36:16 PM
I just got the game 2 weeks back. And this was the first mod I put on the game. I love it I have all the guns on. So my people are all running around with what ever weapons I have got my hands on. So fare the best gun I have found was the M41A Pulse Rifle from the aliens movie. But the boy AT rife is a nice one shot one kill weapon. To bad my sniper one shot killed one of his own people with it. Oh well it still a lot of fun.  :o Thank you for a fun mod.

Nothing as of now, just a trading commodity.  :D
LoL thank you. I now feel like a fool. I have been holding on to the one I found in hope a trader would show up with a cannon. Oh well maybe it be some thing to wait for in later updates.  8)

Really, guys?

Chill out. He's working for free. He'll get to it when he gets to it - he said so on the last page.
If it's a big deal, keep playing A7. If you'd rather not do that, then learn to have some patience.
Patience on the internet you fool it can never happen. J/K LoL I would not mind trying this mod myself but I only got the game Xmiss day so I only have A8. So this means I will use patience it all I have.  8)

General Discussion / What are the shells for?

As in the title. I see some trade ships sell them some times they drop in pods. They are called shells said they are used in cannons. I am new to the game I tried to do a search and shell came up in a number of post and every time I go to a post there nothing about what the shells do. And then I could not go back had to re-enter the forums. So what cannon are they talking about. So what do the shells do?

Thank you all. I will have to look in to the mod. And I do hope this is some thing they will fix in the game. I know it just a game but some how it just rubs me the wrong way even in a game to leave someone to die in the snow who a ally.  When I can save them.
General Discussion / Helping a dieing allies?
January 06, 2015, 04:04:01 PM
Ok I am in my second week of Rimworld and it still a blasted. Now I have had random people or groups come by my colony and pass on. Now the other night one of my colony allies came by and then left. As they were going out a enemy of both of us attacked and came right for my colony. They saw the allies before I could do any thing to help as they come on to the map not fare from there leaving. They killed one and left the other one dieing on the ground. They attacked and I wiped them out to the attacker.

Now is there any thing I can do to help my allies dieing member? I can not do any thing else for them. Any thing else I do will get them mad at me other then let them die.

So have I missed some thing is there anyway to save a allies people and stay good with them?

I always put him behind cover.

I just checked, yea he is missing a finger and got a crushed eye.
I guess that accounts for his bad shot.

Still don't know why power armor sucks so much tho.
How can a neolithic club take out a dude in power armor?
Is 47 really too old for power armor to be effective?
Where is the 'powered' part of the armor if it can't make up for that...

Power armor dose not realy help counter for damage eyes or limbs. Give him a bionic eye and a arm. He will be kick ass after.  I have found the bionic bring back my best people. I alway keep a few on hand when I have the money to buy them. Anyway I hope it give you back your your best fighter.
Well there is more to look at other then his shooting skill. Look at his heath there are all kinds of different things that could make him a poor shoot. Like how old is he dose he have bad eye sight. is he missing a arm a finger. I think all of this shows up.

I had a guy I was using as a hunter but it took him 12 shots to get one hit even with a shooting 11. He had cataract in his right eye and he was missing a finger off his left hand. I got him a new eye and a new arm and he got a lot better more like his numbers should be for a good shot.

Being a ex-marine may mean he been hurt in the past or he just seen to many years to still be at his best. Look in to that if he still sucks then I do not know what to tell you. I am have only been playing for 2 weeks now and I am still find out there more I don't know then i do. Make the game even more fun.

Ive been watching lets play rimworlds and streams of this game, and I think this game is awesome.

A few things I would like to see, what already been suggested is raiding other factiosn on different maps,(if 400x400 is the highest you can do for 1 screen, then a instance of other maps for fight/raiding/exploring wise would be cool)

You could even find special resources on other maps and have like special vehicles to ship them over to your map.

Awesome game so far, keep it up!
I found the game the same way. I was watching two different people showing this game on YouTube. Found the game looked fun to watch. Found out not only was it fun to watch but it a 100 times more fun to play.

Do be warned this game has time travel effects. I started to play it at 7:30PM my first night. I look at the cloak 30 minutes later and it was 4AM. So you are not just buying a game you are getting a time machine along with it. All be it, it as a time machine that goes forward in time only. LoL  :D :D :P
Ideas / Draft commands.
December 31, 2014, 07:56:38 PM
Ok I have only been playing for a week now so I am sure this may already been suggested. But I found some post close but a little different.

I would like to see some set commands for when you draft your people. Commands like the one below.

Draft order all return to base. (or maybe pull everyone back to jobs in the home zone till the all clear) I know this may not be a draft order but it would help when every second counts.
Draft order all assemble at set place
Draft order all go to set battle stations
Draft orders all go stand by your assigned bed

There maybe more that would help but those are just a few I can think of. Now you ask why on some of them.

Well return to base is to get your people on the way back in case of a attack. This will also keep any other from going out. Maybe a base alarm keeping them to jobs only in the home zone till you can find out what going on. I know this may not be a draft order. But it a thought.

All assemble at a set point is so you can get ready for making a attack or getting ready for a attack. You have to have a way to set a place for all your people to go to when you call.

Now offen times I use the same people in the some point of defense. So why not have a set Battle station. Military base and ships do this why would you colony have some thing the same.  They will just run at best speed to the place they are set to go.

Last you ask why a command to there bed. Well I have found in my first game you have to have clothing for summer ans well as heavy clothing for winter. But what to do with the clothing when i do not need it. Well I have found I leave it in there rooms on the ground. And for this I have to wait for everyone to go to there rooms and then hand drop there gear. It would be easier if I can sent them all to there rooms and then go to each one and drop or pick up said gear. As well some time you want to get every one close to base but not ready to attack yet this will let you pull them in to a place where you will know where they are and look for anyone who is missing.

Now again I am new to the game I am sorry if this has come up before or maybe it in the game already and I just missed it. Hell I am not sure I know how to draft all my people yet with out dragging a box around them all and hitting draft. I only know a small number of commands right now. Anyway let me know what you think or if you have any more idea for commands.
General Discussion / Rimworld needs a safty warning.
December 30, 2014, 03:16:13 AM
This game is bad for your heath as well as it maybe a time machine. It may need a warning much like this. "This game may cost you a lack of sleep, no drive to do any thing else but play it, and a unexplained lose of time. Game at your own risk."

As for it being a time machine. I can not prove it is one. But I got Rimworld Christmas day. After watching a few YouTubers playing it. So I did the family Christmas dinner and went home to play this new game I bought. So I started playing. Now I looked at the clock and it was 7:30 PM so I thought I will play for half hour and see if there any thing on TV at 8pm. So I played for a time and then looked at my clock half hour later and it was 4am. Time machine or not it up to you to find out on your own. But some place I lost 8 and a half hours and I do not think it was aliens because I had on my tinfoil hat. LoL ;D

Realy great game this is simple but fun in a old school game style but with much more. and well worth the money. I will get hours of play with Rimworld and it is a realy fun game.

Oh P.S. Thank god I did not have to go to work the next day. LoL
Hmm I am new to the game but the most Annoying thing I have found is I have to stop playing Rimworld to work and sleep.  ;D

Hello all I am a 47 year old gamer and gone by the name on line Vonholtz sense the 90's. I loved games like civ and master of orion. Of late I have been testing games like War Thunder and World of Tanks. As well as some newer games like project zomboid. But I have wanted a game like Civ again.

So I have been watching a few youtubers and found Rimworld. Thanks to people like Falcon and MathasGames.

I am hoping to see more of this game and maybe make some suggestion down the line. Oh it seem my first game of rimworld is going good but it seem heat and sickness will take my first try. And it fun as hell even if I lose it all.

Cheers Vonholtz
