Rah's Bionics and Surgery Expansion - 2.7 [Rimworld 1.2 / Royalty DLC]


Hello fellow rimworlders ! This mod aims to enrich the bionics and surgery gameplay as much as possible, without being intrusive to the vanilla experience. While originally intended to be a streamlined and 'improved' version of Expanded Prosthetics and Organ Engineering, which it still is to some degree, it is now also a standalone and complete medical mod. This mod features all kinds of prostheses and bionic parts, bone repairs and scar healing surgeries, for your needs.

Your colonists will, however, struggle for a while if they lose limbs or become severely crippled in the early game, until you manage to craft the rare and expensive bionic parts. You can still make simple prostheses and repair shattered bones relatively fast after researching it, but the resource cost is quite high for most things. Peg legs, wooden feet and dentures are of course always available for free. ;-) Early colony life was never easy !

- Rah's Bionics and Surgery Expansion: The normal version is a bit more 'fair', in terms of resource costs, compared to the Hardcore Edition. Great for medium difficulties, especially on Randy and Phoebe. Link below.
- RBSE Hardcore Edition: This version has higher resource costs, and is therefore best suited for players who are looking for a bigger challenge. Works great on the harder difficulties, especially with Cassandra. Link below.

-- RBSE is a standalone bionics and surgery mod. Do not install RBSE with EPOE --

Main features:

- 2 workbenches.
- Bionic Workbench: craft an array of bionic prostheses. (simple parts available at a machining table)
- Advanced Medical Station: craft advanced bionic prostheses, synthetic organs and brain implants.
- Bone repairs for clavicles, femurs, tibias etc. (spinal fusion included)
- Old scars and gunshot wounds can be cured with Glitterworld medicine after research. (brain scars must be cured in other ways)
- All bionic parts cost quite a bit of resources, mainly in plasteel and components. (ex: 1 bionic arm costs 80 plasteel and 6 components..)
- Most simple prosthetic parts cost steel and components. (ex: 1 simple prosthetic arm costs 120 steel and 4 components.)
- Balanced bionic parts: Decked out bionic pawns are powerful, but not game breakingly overpowered.
- Organ rejection system for natural organ transplants. (vanilla friendly) (can be toggled on/off in mod settings)
- Organs need refrigeration to avoid rot and decay.
- 3 new chronic diseases: Chronic kidney disease, congenital heart defect, chronic stomach disorder.
- 3 new brain implants for the late game and for brain damaged colonists.
- Hook hand available through the "Smithing" research.
- Bionics and surgery research tree with its own research tab.
- Archotech parts cannot be crafted, just like in vanilla. They are also slightly superior to advanced bionic parts.
- 3 implant colors: Light blue for simple parts, blue for bionics and purple for advanced parts.
- Medicine and Glitterworld Medicine have original red colors from A16.
- White textures for Royalty parts to better fit the medical theme.
- Redundancy kept to a minimum.
- Bug fixes and balance work.

EXTRAS:
- RBSE parts spreadsheet: All RBSE part values. If you would like to help edit and maintain it, let me know.
- Updating translations: Some of the translations are a bit outdated, so feel free to send me a message if you want to update your language.
- A Dog Said Link: 100% compatible with RBSE, no patch needed. Get the standard A Dog Said version.
- Alien race patches available on the forum or steam.
- Hardcore Armors: Advanced power armor mod. Vanilla friendly !

Why remove eye patches and wooden feet?
Eye patches remove disfigured penality in social relationships.
Wooden foot is usefull if you have a guy who lost a foot but you don't won't to remove the whole leg to install a peg leg.

Why remove surrogate organs?
They are usefull if you can't get a natural organ but you are unable to make synthetic organs because of research or crafting cost.

Otherwise-great!

Hey Kapun. I removed the really basic stuff like golden eyes and wooden feet to declutter the mod a bit, and because I felt like they didn't really contribute that much to the game. With regards to the surrogate stuff; I wanted to keep the integrity of the natural organ concept intact. I feel like the early colony life should be hard on the colonists. If you can't hunt down an organ, then maybe your colonist will die.

Later in the game, you do get access to very advanced synthetic organs though, which require Hyperweave and plasteel.

Hope you like it if you decide to try it out. Feel free to give more feedback !

Idk, I consider being able to walk as if I have partial use out of the one leg I have no foot on to contribute to my colony significantly. Same with not having to pay premiums on trade of wait thrice as long to recruit people if I have no eye or ear.

- Workbenches reduced down to 2
- All bionic parts now cost a lot more resources, mainly in plasteel and components.
- Vancidium and advanced components removed.
- EPOE mod traders removed. Keeping it vanilla and hard.
- Old scars and gunshot wounds can be cured with glitterworld medicine. 1 medicine per injury.

This is great. Less odd clutter and more difficulty, given how easy it was to get a bionic army before. Great changes my friend, although the eye patches did have a decent purpose, in my opinion. Did a working leg and wooden foot have increased mobility over a peg leg? If not, then I don't see a need to include it.

Hi Didact04. You can research the simple prosthetics relatively fast, but I feel like the early colony life should be pretty rough on the colonists. However, if people really want some of the primitive stuff back, I might consider that for sure.

The only annoying thing with eye patches and wooden feet is that you constantly get them in supply pods. And that installing an eye patch is an operation

Thanks Hikurac. With a peg leg they get like 50% mobility total I believe, and with a wooden foot you get slightly more if I remember correctly. If enough people beg to get them back, I might reconsider ! Nothing is set in stone. ;)

quick hotfix to simple prosthetics

- simple prosthetics now only require steel and components. ex: 1 arm req: 130 steel and 3 components.

Yeah, it's a bit funny that you have to lay down and have surgery to put on an eye patch. :p

To be honest, a wooden foot sounds sorta strange, have never heard of it IRL.
Maybe ad crutches instead?

Then again, crutches would impair manipulation so maybe for balance it's not a good idea?

Also, I recommend some other form of rebranding other than 'Hardcore'. One would imply it's simply a difficulty change but it does a lot more than that.

Will traders still randomly have a chance to have prosthetics for sale or did you remove that completely?

Hi Love (nice name;). I did consider naming it something like "Overhaul","Revisited" etc, but I figured "Hardcore" matched what I was trying to do quite well. Rimworld is supposed to be pretty unforgiving. This mod tries to keep things hard and blend in with the vanilla game.

The EPOE traders were removed, although all the parts can show up on the vanilla traders.

This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks! I think I will miss the wooden foot, but I agree with you on every other aspect of the mod (including removing the golden eye and eye patch).

Hope you look into A Dog Said version of your mod, although I think it's largely unnecessary

I disagree, A Dog Said pretty much gives you full access to everything right out of the gate, has its own costs and workbench, etc.

Making an addon for it would allow all those parts to be part of these workbenches and research mechanics.
