[A15] Mod Announcements Thread

Previous topic - Next topic


This thread is to announce any mods you have made or updated for this version of RimWorld.

Many times when people post smaller mods their threads get buried under the threads of bigger, more established mods which generate more activity. They go unseen because they sink to page 2 of the releases forum and people who don't check the forums daily might never even see them.

To solve this issue this thread is here. If you're modder you can make a post with a link and short description of your mod and it will always be at the bottom of the thread where people can find it easily. If you're a mod user wanting to check out which new mods have been released you can simply go to the new posts, same as any other thread and see all the new releases since your last visit.

  • One post per mod
    If you've just updated your mod and have already posted, you can edit your announcement post if you wish.

  • Only the mod author may post a mod
    This is mainly to help with rule #1 so we don't get situations where a mod author posts his mod, then someone else didn't see it and posts it again.

  • Only mod announcements in this thread
    Any post that is not a mod announcement will be removed. If you have feedback/criticism/etc. regarding this thread, send me a PM. If you have feedback/criticism/etc. regarding a mod, post in the mod's thread or PM the author.

To get you started, here is a quick template on what your announcement post could look like

Title of the mod
[Link to the mod's forum thread]

Solar Apocalypse and Rogue Planet (updated 07 October 2016)
Manual download: http://marvinkosh.omniloth.net/mod/marvs-disasters/
Dropbox mirror: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rctbotkq2wjwtza/MarvsDisasters104a.zip?dl=0
Available on Steam Workshop: Yes, see here.

Enables two challenging map conditions for use in your own custom scenarios. Solar Apocalypse gradually heats up your RimWorld while Rogue Planet simulates a gradual escape from the parent star with reduced solar power and colder temperatures.

The 1.0.4 update fine-tunes the Rogue Planet map condition. It will now block the Solar Flare incident after 4.5 years have passed, and the temperature will not bottom out at absolute zero unless you start in a very cold location. I goofed this update the first time around but it seems to be working properly now, thanks to a quick bit of patching.

Manual download: http://marvinkosh.omniloth.net/mod/combat-readiness-check/
Dropbox mirror: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pultpvrmyjxomy6/CombatReadinessCheck104.zip?dl=0
Available on Steam Workshop: Yes, see here.

Combat Readiness Check adds variants of the original storytellers (suffixed with CRC). They will all examine your colonists general health when deciding how many raid points they generate. Instead of using all the wealth in the calculation they will only count industrial-era or better weapons or armour, and building wealth.

CRC Double Population Addon

Adds Double Population variants of the Combat Readiness Check storytellers.

Requires Combat Readiness Check.

Apparel Insulation Nerf (bugfixed and updated on 07 October 2016)
Requires Mod Friendly Overrides by notfood. You should load it after Mod Friendly Overrides. Note that you may need to delete the example overrides.

Manual download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/686omhkvzo8bzaa/ApparelInsulationNerf.zip?dl=0
Available on Steam: No.

This mod overrides the amount of insulation that apparel can provide. The nerf is a bit less severe than the Alpha 14 version.

Begone Ice Sheet Wanderers!

Manual download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mvtqblkyyukp7h3/BegoneIceSheetWanderers.zip?dl=0
Available on Steam: Yes, see here.

A quick mod that I made after I saw someone on the subreddit complaining about wanderers just turning up out of the blue on the ice sheet. This disables the Wanderer Joins event, but only on the ice sheet.

Yes, I know, there's an allowed biomes tag. It just didn't seem as elegant a solution. :P

Faster Grass Spreading (bugfixed and updated on 08 November 2016)
Requires Mod Friendly Overrides by notfood. You should load it after Mod Friendly Overrides. Note that you may need to delete the example overrides.

Manual download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4e8dlkccyzwy0ww/FasterGrassSpread102.zip?dl=0
Available on Steam: No.

This mod speeds up the spreading of grass. To compensate, grass spreads in a shorter radius than before.

No Gravel Fertility
Requires Mod Friendly Overrides by notfood. You should load it after Mod Friendly Overrides. Note that you may need to delete the example overrides.

Manual download: https://www.dropbox.com/s/z3m4p8mtwek5exf/NoGravelFertility.zip?dl=0
Available on Steam: No.

This mod makes gravel unusable for growing by setting its fertility to 0. This makes Ice Sheet playthroughs a bit more difficult by requiring that the player invest in hydroponics (or start with it in the scenario).
