Unable to make Beds into Prisoners,Medical, Or even Assign.
« on: November 22, 2020, 06:26:56 PM »

So, while playing Rimworld, I noticed I some how disabled or lost the ability to assign beds to be Prisoner Beds or Medical Beds. In fact, I lost the whole bar! Which is strange, because it shows up for everything else, just not beds. Any help would be great!

Above is a example of what I mean. Everything is oddly missing.

yes this is not a normal situation, but we need a bit more information to give any help/hints.

I am pretty sure an error happen that prevent rimworld to draw the icons.
When you play vanilla (without mods) just try to delete inside the rimworld installation the Data folder and reinstall/repair it afterwards.
Check inside the Mods folder if you see Core, delete that too (vanilla gamefiles from an old version).
At the Saved data area (if you don't know the path, at the rimworld options you should find a button for it) delete the Config folder.
At this way you should have a clean installation without old files that could interfere.

But when you play with mods, things are geting more complicated.
You should enable developer mode at the options, then some icons appear on top. The left one open the log window, open it.
When you see red text (errors) before you even loaded a safegame one or more mods don't work correct.
Try to identify the mod and better don't use it.
If you can't identify them by the error text, maybe deactivate them all, and reactivate them at small batches, then you notice early when you got errors.

Don't forget when you deactivate mod's your safegame maybe not work anymore.
