[CustomScenario] Colonists escaping the exploding ship.
« on: January 10, 2014, 02:48:53 AM »

This is a variation of a CustomScenario in that you don't get to do anything. You just watch 3 colonists out of 10 successfully escape the craft that is described by the first letter you receive when you start a new world.
I would like to express thanks to both Darker and pbgben for their save file editors. Both were used to improve the overall look of this cinematic.

No mods are required to play this cinematic. Simply download, unzip and place in your RimWorld save folder. Load it like you are loading a normal saved game.

Cinematic Save File: http://www.mediafire.com/download/yta3fslp621iqpj/EscapeComplete.7z
Outdated. Does not work in RimWorld 0.1.334

It's not an actual cinematic per se. It's like my CustomScenarios, in that it's just a modified save file. To 'watch' it, you just load it like a regular save file.

The only reason I can think of that it wouldn't work when you load it is if you are not running the current version of RimWorld, which is 0.0.254b

.7z is the file extension used by 7-Zip, a free zip program. You can download it here: http://www.7-zip.org/

Had to watch this 5 times. Really good. Totally awesome.

How did you make the explosions? I thought this wasn't possible (since game-save files do not contain info about when is a thing gonna explode).
And even more confusing is, how did you make the pawns dissapear. Is that the same trick travellers use?

A magician never reveals his secrets.

Thankfully I'm not a magician, so:
The explosions are slightly modified thrown grenades. (They don't show their graphic on the ground.)
As for the pawns disappearing, you are correct. It's exactly the same code travellers use to vanish when they reach the edge of the map.

This is pretty amazing.

Did you specifically do something to get the roofing bell to ding at the end?

No. That was accidental.

I love the video Thorwan made. ;D He captured the intended result of Duke getting injured while escaping.

This would be really good if you could get it to blend into the starting of each new save rather than it being seperate

That would get tiresome after a while, even though it is epic. It would be better to play that before starting your first game.
