I plopped it into a rimworld folder with 30 other mods, no problems so far. No conflicts with the AlphaMuffalo mod, my only pawn-adding mod. Since your xml just changes the <thingClass> of "BasePawn", I think anything loaded before may automatically get written over as a BattleFormations.XPawn?
Bestest news ever ;D :D

Will report problems, bugs, anomalies, blackholes...

I only just realised, you've completely over written the defs for pawns to make them use an entirely custom thingDef for their behaviour... I didn't even realise you could do that! XD

Your mod is really good. I've just tested it and it does work perfectly on my side.
The only thing I would change is that right now you overwrite every pawn in your Races.xml.
As your mod right now is only for colonists, you should maybe delete everything not human out of the file, so that you only have to watch out for changes in the human definitions and not if someone changes the animal definitions.
But else it really works good!
Also I'm glad that my mod could provide some help for you to create this. :)
Good work.. ;D

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I'll change it in the next release. It does seem more sensible that way.

By the way, if anybody does a "Lets play Rimworld" vid on youtube featuring my mod, please do let me know! I'd love to watch people actually use it. Bonus points if you also use my favourite mod setup, which is Haplo's PowerSwitch, Psyckosama's Cremation Chamber and Silvermane's Clothes mod.

It's at the bottom of the first post. I updated the first post yesterday by the way, also added a section about plans for the next release which I could use some feedback on. Mainly what the threat response structure should look like.

Edit: I'll go add a download section I guess

I'm still waiting for the new textures before I release version 0.2, but if anyone would like to try the new version with the old textures in the meantime, here it is.
Your old savegames won't work with the new version, but it's easy to fix this using the awesome XML manipulation tool XmlStarlet which you can download here.

To fix your Battle Formations 0.1 savegame to work with Battle Formations 0.2:
Code: [Select]
xml ed -P -u "//thing[@Class='BattleFormations.XPawn'][def/text()='Human']/@Class" -v "BF.PawnX" -u "//thing[@Class='BattleFormations.XPawn'][def/text()!='Human']/@Class" -v "Pawn" input.rim >output.rim
To add Battle Formations 0.2 to your vanilla savegame:
Code: [Select]
xml ed -P -u "//thing[@Class='Pawn'][def/text()='Human']/@Class" -v "BF.PawnX" input.rim >output.rim
To remove Battle Formations 0.2 from your savegame:
Code: [Select]
xml ed -P -d "//thing[@Class='BF.PawnX']/savedpos" -u "//thing[@Class='BF.PawnX']/@Class" -v "Pawn" input.rim >output.rim
If all this command line stuff scares you, just download XmlStarlet, get this batch file, make sure xml.exe and the batch file are in the same directory and drag and drop your savegame on the batch file. I do advise to keep the backup file, at least until some people have reported it all works as intended.

How what works exactly? If you just want to play a game with this mod, install it like you would any other mod. The complicated xml stuff only applies if you want to enable this mod on a savegame you started without this mod or if you want to continue your savegame from the old version with the new version.

First post updated with new version. I went straight to v1.0 since it seems to work pretty well and I don't think I'll be making many changes to it. I do plan to do a mod based on this, but that'll be a separate mod.
