I love the cleaning/repair bot idea, they could use your power and stop working during a solar flare or when they are unable to charge up.

I can see some cool random events happening with them too.

How about, if you give someone a weapon when there shooting skills is low as a random event they could ND (Negligent discharge(firing by mistake)) and could injure themselves or others.  Could encourage people to stop the chars from carrying weapons all the time and not putting them in the armoury after an attack.

Also, change ai storyteller in game.  So i start with the easy one, build a base, get bored and want to change to a harder ai. Possible? For balance you could make it you can only change up, not down.

I'm sure it's been suggested plenty of times, but what about basic robots that could (inefficiently) take care of some menial tasks? You'd have a mining robot, a farming robot, etc.

Hello everyone! I really like RimWorld and i want to help in development. I have created several small concepts of how to make the game better in my opinion. I would be happy to read your comments and I will try to answer all the questions. And sorry for my english (google translate help)

Concept 1. Indicator of physical and spiritual health of the colonists
http://imageup.ru/s1533781
By clicking on the button in the corner of the screen displays the colonists on a small circle with indicators needs (green) and thoughts (blue). The more red the worse the colonist
http://imageup.ru/s1533794
All the indicators on the "Overview" menu
http://imageup.ru/s1533801

Concept 2. Living and working areas.
http://imageup.ru/s1533809
Added button "Zone" appears when a colonist. When selected, a new sub-menu where you can select the required actions and assign a zone to perform this work, the colonist. Zones are of several colors. For example construct the selected colonist will only be in the blue zone.
http://imageup.ru/s1533829
Also in this sub-menu you can change the priority actions for the selected colonist.
http://imageup.ru/s1533836

 Thanks :)

Guard towers have been mentioned, but I'm not sure that translates well to top-down - how about one man Starcraft style bunkers instead? Have them cost a lot of metal to build as well as more metal to repair damage.

Just a few ideas, though i havnt read the whole thread so they may have already been mentioned.


Line of sight xcom style. Not much needs to be said about this but it would add more to the tactical gameplay and bridge onto my next ideas.

Scanners. These can detect lifeforms and/or viruses, atmosphere, bacteria ect.

Crashed ships. A 20x20 ship consisting of a cargo bay and bridge. Can be a random event. Is it friendly? Alien? Is anyone alive or even on board? Does it harbour a virus? Etc :).

The ability to have interplanet missions would also be cool but i think thats beyond the scope of the game design..

Regarding "small" ideas, I only have one so far: add a (toggable) in-game clock.
Starting a game at 20:00 and just a bit later wondering what the time is, only to find out it's 02:00... Well, please help not making it too much of a habit ::)

Blitz... I love you, I really do. Please post the spreadsheet!

I also really hope it includes a bit more info about the ideas... just those titles don't explain much in a lot of cases.

I'm sorry, Blitz, but I think you forgot about my little suggestion?  :-[

A cheap UI help could be easily implemented in the Overview menu (where you can use checkboxes to decide who does what). Right now, you need to uncheck every box in a certain column if you want everybody to stop certain work. A great help would be if a column (for example Hauling) could be switched off by one click on the top of the column. If you would switch it on again later, it remembers which colonists actually had the checkbox checked and reinstates that.

An example where it could be useful is in the situation that GC13 encountered in his Combat Preview video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c4ukQZPfbO4&hd=1&t=14m11s

He initially switched them all off because he didn't want the colonists to walk all around the map while there where raiders waiting to attack.

Sorry if this was already posted (or if this thread isn't meant for UI feedback).

Or did I read over it in your post?  :o
