This addon adds new locking door system.

  • Doors can be unlocked to allow enemies and prisoners to pass by (only races that have inteligence "humanlike" or above).
  • Doors can exclude visitors (wanna lock some traders?).
  • Doors can be assigned to colonists (you can simply restrict rooms to specific colonists without allowed area manager).
  • Pet doors for small animals can now be added to doors.
  • New Flicking job: Locking/unlocking doors, it has higher priority than normal flicking job. ("Flicking" doors is needed).

How to use
Select door and left click "Lock" command if you want to unlock/lock door. Right click for more options.

This mod has almost zero impact on performance. It's quick and light.


  • You can enable this mod to old saves.
  • You can disable this mod from saves, but you need to clear all locking/unlocking job first (all semi-transparent locks shouldn't be visible).
  • For DoorsExpanded use this mod.
  • Clutter Structure mod compatibility - this mod leaves management to Clutter Structures, expect you can now "unlock" doors with Locks.
  • There can be compatibility issues with mods that add custom doors with custom security mechanics.

This seems like such a better indepth lock mod, Going to try it out and give a proper review.  :D


I can see a problem with cleaning some rooms.
What do you think to add an option that a sleeping pawn lock the door when he sleep/enter his room, and unlock when he leave/wakeup.
Then cleaner can enter the room.


this mod have "potential", but

1. screenshot of the locking, that'll help a lot
2. what if, you can unlock&lock door, but in long range,  (main controller that can control a multiple door, but it's high end)

It's not a great poem
But it's pretty deep


Locks very good Avius.
( yes I went there .. )

Maybe more useful than the autolock or other mods I have seen so far. I will test it in my new Colony
( I can't understand why people refer to it as playthrough .. most of my colonies die either of boredom, fps or a new idea )

Dude/tte I love your signature .. had me laughing for a hole five minutes
( yes I did this on purpose too ..  )

Maxim 1   : Pillage, then burn
Maxim 37 : There is no overkill. There is only open fire and reload.
Rule 34 of Rimworld :There is a mod for that.

Problem with locking/unlocking for certain job is game mechanics are somehow weird. It works on cache and enabling/disabling locks will have impact on performance.

But good point I will think about that.


there 2 ways we can do cleaning

1. have a timed lock. it locks in the times  u set but is unlocked rest of time so u could have it lock during night and such
2. have it only lock when who owns the door goes past. if more than 1 person own it only lock when both are in room


The 2. way works better, if you got an nightowl the 1. way would cause problems.


Avius best solution i found for cleaning and doctoring while doing lock mod is to check the pawn job queue. If next job is not cleaning/doctoring and job target is not in current room, checks pawn position and if pawn room != current room, revoke passage.
All i do is clutter all around.


You've missing the point. The whole system is designed with idea that changing locks are very very rare. If not the whole game will be lagging and you will loose FPS.

Each individual pawn have his own Reachability Matrix if any of these matrix is about to change all matrix of all pawns in the map will be cleared and need to be calculated from beginning.


Oh i though you just did use vanilia pather methods to do that, my bad then sorry :P
All i do is clutter all around.

It is vanilla pather methods

EDIT: This happen every time you're building any structures.


Maybe if trigger would be call very rare, and condition will call one global function it could be a lot quicker, but now I think about another problem, what if pawn stuck inside room, which has transfered into locked a few seconds ago


Question how do you enable it for prisoners im a bit lost (or stupid)
