DeepRim

Description:
Allows construction of mining shaft, which can drill down and bring you new maps to explore and mine for resource.  Never run out of ores! Avoid the lazy Deep drill with this new revolutionary mining method!

Start by building a mining shaft and click start. It requires power while drilling. (It's not magic, duh)


Once finished, you get the option to send people and item down


They'll end up in the underground map, full of rocks and ores to mine.


FAQ:
Will there be raids in the underground?
Unlikely. I can't say for sure. Raids can probably still be forced for underground, but it'll probably just spew some red errors. Can't say what will happen, since there's quite a number of storyteller, and some are custom.

Will this mod works with <X>?
Most likely. If there's any incompatibility issue, please tell me.

Will <Custom Ore of some mod> spawn underground?
If it spawns above ground, it will likely spawn underground (Assuming that the mod configured them correctly, instead of writing a code to spawn spawn ore after your pawns landed) . At the moment, it is confirmed that hardcore SK's ores spawn correctly underground.

LAG! LAG! LAG! It's lagging!
That's not a question. But yes, this mod will take more CPU when drilling a new layer, specifically, when the drilling is done, and a new layer is generated. It only last a moment though, after that, you should be fine. There's no solution for this at the moment, unless Rimworld somehow does multi-threading. Having too many layer will also cause lag. Try to avoid that.

How do I move item from one layer to another?
Put a stockpile zone on the lift, move whatever item you wish to move. Use the bring up/move down feature to move the items. (Items, pawns, and animals are all moved by the lift in the same way)

Planned Feature:
Multiple shaft to single map, allowing tunnels to be made
Balancing
Deeper layers will have different map generation method. For example, lava and hotter in deeper layer.

Well there you go Z levels.

Well done, does the map count as a new colony?

Will the new map be venerable to bug infestations?

Will the map remain the same when you return to it?

Is it compatible with existing saves?

Do I have more questions? Probably.

Neat! I'll look back at this once my current playthrough is done in...(looks at colony and goals)...A very long time.

The map will remain the same when you return to it. You can go to and from as many time as you wish. You can also build as many shaft as you like and thus, have as many level as you wish, each separated from the other.

Once you're done with it, you can just abandon the layer, which discards everything in it.

It should be compatible with existing save. However, once installed, you can't remove it if you have any underground map in your game.

As for bug infestation, I have not a clue. The answer is maybe (for now. We'll know after someone complains).

Also, I'll add multiple entrance support for one layer soon (Maybe in a few days, or twenty thousand years), so people can get their tunnel warfare going.

Can raids occur in the mines? Because that'd be dope if we could have some underground combat

Could we have a tribal substitute? Maybe having limited amounts of levels? I want my tunnel workers to be at home!

Can the map collapse in on people or should you follow the normal rules for digging into a mountain? Last thing I want to deal with people buried alive or worse yet underground rivers, oh wait not dwarf enough for those. 

Also how do you bring things back up? Just what a pawn can carry?

So if i place two of them and more on same level they create new separated maps or they share one map.

I see this could lead to make RW based on exploration and survival instead of building and survival. Something like this



The novel itself is pretty primitive but you get the idea.
The question is what can be done with map created trough object or however it is created in this mod. Is it possible to make it generate similar maps with slight changes with every step? In the terrain as well as environment?
You could create special charged apparel with setting that let you jump to newly generated map that is most likely similar. Further you go the changes are bigger. There's always small chance that next world is going to be some what extraordinary and/or dangerous.
Aaaand so on in my imagination.
People who have read Pratchetts get the idea.

This is ambitious and amazing.  How much testing has been done?  Can events occur on these sublevels?  Are pawns in them considered to be in the parent map (for purposes of getting malaria, etc) or elsewhere?  If you've truly gotten this to work, it could be the basis for a lot more.

Hey I have a problem currently. I cannot seem to get my colonists to go to the other map. In the screenshot you have them standing over the drill and are able to take them down into the mine. But when I do it it doesn't work, even after the hole has been dug
