Linux: memory ocupation

I am playing  Rimworld Version 1.0 unstable on Ubuntu Linux Xenial version (16.04)

After about 15-30 minutes playing a new colony, the game freezes. The memory consumption ramps up.

I wait 15 minutes or so to let Linux manage the memory and I can continue playing a little bit bumpy (memory usage is at maximum level)


Please follow the guide:

Also add the specifications of your computer like:

  • How much RAM you have
  • How much RAM is consumed by RimWorld
  • How much Swap space you have configured.
  • Any mods?
  • What build of the game?


My RimWorld build is  1.0.1982, but i started to have this problem some builds ago.

The computer have 8GB RAM and 8 of swap. I send you two images of top result: Before starting Rimworld and when RimWorld becomes frozen. When frozen, it consumes 100%CPU too. (so maybe I am wrong with the memory problem. Its a CPU problem stead)

I am playing with no mods at all.

Looks to me like it's waiting on SYSCALLs based on CPU status,

My guess is that it's paging to disk hence why it's frozen.

But AFAIK a vanilla RimWorld game shouldn't take up 4 GB or more of RAM.

Are you using the 32 bit or 64 bit build? and does it happen on all maps or just one in particular?


I am using a 64bits buid

A played different maps and it always happened.

Later on I will test on a different computer and check.


Checked on new computer and it doesn't freeze. Memory consumption is not that hi, but the CPU requirements still shows 100%.

I had no try to update translation files, i will update

I had updated the translations and applied the translation correction tool. Now it freezes again after some playing.
