You naming your mod as such gives me thidea of actually sending out pawns to discover new factions in the world (a la misc. Mod), and either returning with gifts given by faction leaders or returning with a mood boost for 'exploration'

You can even expand on that idea and have your pawns sent out to raid, returning with loot/slaves and a chance to be injured/killed. This would give rise to players running a pirate colony.

Actually, with the MISC mods, you can essentially send your people out for a few days (usually 3) at a time to scavenge ruins and return with decent gear. Petitioning that author for raiding is your best bet since he already has a grasp on the idea.

Now, what I think would be a good idea for THIS mod is for a faction to come and and settle down on your current map, albeit friendly or otherwise so there's allies or a growing risk to adventuring out of your base.

Or I can just keep it simple and don't do feature creep.

Is there a maximum of factions in a game? Does this mod allow for an infinite amount of factions on a map?

There's no maximum I would know of. If you change the faction requirement numbers, you can indeed have a whole lot of factions. Beats me why you'd want that, though :P

Aww shit, the stupid hippies corrupted my test save file.
It certainly was not a good idea to use a A15 mod on A14

Any way to fix this problem?
Also, can you give me a link to the A14 Faction Discovery mod?

There is no A14 version. Although someone claimed it worked fine for him in A14. I have a hunch that was not you.

To fix your file, I'd edit the file, and find-replace the faction references of all hippie pawns to a faction you had before. Then kick out the hippie faction. Keep loading it, with the mod disabled, check what RimWorld complains about in the developer console, and fix that next.

Oh, and visiting factions is not gonna happen. Try the MISC mods. They have something where you can send colonists on missions.

This actually sounds like Tropico 2 Pirate Cove, haha.

It was an awesome game and I loved the mechanic of sending away your guys. Nothing wrong with that. It's just completely out of scope for this mod.
