Hi Aant,
just wondering why you don't team up with the "Multiplayer" mod team?

Hi Aant,

Unfortunately I do not speak English and it would be difficult for me to communicate.
Also, as far as I understand, their mod is made in a completely different way. They synchronize the actions of players in one colony and players have everything in common. In our mod, each player has his own independent game, but on one common planet.


Since the other players are different factions, would everyone be able to raid and fight each other in the future?

Update 0.03.40a from 2020.05.03

A big update, in which it became possible to attack a foreign settlement with partial control of their pawns. Unfortunately, everything didn't work out beautifully and smoothly, but you can still have fun! :)
The mod is transferred to version RimWorld 1.1
Added Chinese translation (thanks @ldoubil).
Reworked mod description, now everything is described in more detail.
The server side now has settings.
There was a setting for the frequency of autosaves, the default is 15 minutes.
You can write a text about yourself that will be available to other players.
Many bugs fixed, new ones made :)

A little description of PVP. Now, if you have a desire to take away from your neighbor what is bad or to completely capture the colony, you can do it with your own caravan. Your colonists will attack the enemy colony in the form in which it is playing at the moment (of course, it must be online). The attacking pawns are always in combat mode and accept commands to go to the position, shoot at the target and attack the target closely. They can also pick up weapons, clothes and take or discard something from the inventory, or else they can eat or drink something. Actually, the control possibilities end there: it turns out that only the main teams for fighting are available. We should also say that the attacker manages the situation remotely. Because of what, his orders are executed, but he does not see the process of aiming and shooting. Movements also occur in jerks. It is sad that it did not work out to do everything smoothly. At the moment, I do not see the technical ability to make this mechanism better. In order to slightly compensate for the loss of control, the speed of movement of the pawns of the attacked is halved (the reduction takes effect a minute after the start of the battle in order to have time to take a position).

To attack, both you and the enemy in the Settings tab should have a checkmark "Participate in PVP". You can change it once a day. If any side leaves the game during the battle this will be tantamount to defeat and the player will either lose the colony or the caravan that is attacking. For the other side, only the fact that hostile pawns will passively shoot back under the control of the AI ??game will change. If the attacker wants to retreat, then he needs to go to any edge of the map and click Retreat in the menu. While PVP is in progress, half of the first speed is forcibly set. You can neither pause nor accelerate.

The official server is now available again at rimworld.online.
When you connect to it, our modpack will be automatically downloaded. Watch out! Save everything important from the Mods folder.
The server works without the DLC Royalty, since not everyone buys it, and it's illegal to automatically download paid content without buying it.
Dev mod on the server is now disabled.

Many thanks to everyone who helped our project for all this long time! Thanks to you, the mod now has even more different languages, new settlement icons that reflect the wealth of the colony, a cool mechanism for downloading mods and other things to the code that are not noticeable, but important for development, and, of course, thanks to those who help financially with the rental server!


It is possible to abandon a colony and start all over again without resetting the map?


I'm trying out the public server and I'm having an issue with my colonists not wanting to perform tasks due to their supposed health condition (https://i.imgur.com/zINFTZO.png). This affects the same jobs for all colonists, even if they're in perfect health (https://i.imgur.com/H03YpbA.png). What's extra strange is they will perform the tasks if manually tasked, but will otherwise ignore it.

I've tried asking others on the server but it seems they don't have this issue. I've unsubscribed from all of my mods, deleted the Rimworld directory, deleted the settings directory in AppData, and did a fresh install with a new settlement, but it still has the same jobs in red. No clue why it's acting up. :/

Hi, I may have not understood very well how this mod works but, does it allow me to play with a friend (in two separate and independent settlements) on the same world or will we find other players as well?

I just would like to play with another person as if we were in a LAN.

I know Zetrith mod, it works well, but playing on separate settlements is a definitely another thing :)
