Have You tried checking the integrity of game files via steam? maybe it missed a shortcut

this worked https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=4805.0

1. [Windows only] Download Delete_RimWorld_Registry_entries.reg (click the download button on the right side of the Dropbox page). Then double-click the file to delete all registry entries related to RimWorld.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

2. Reset RimWorld's configuration data by deleting all the RimWorld configuration files. You'll find them in one of the following folders (depending on your operation system):

Windows          C:/Users/[username]/AppData/LocalLow/Ludeon Studios/RimWorld/Config
C:/Users/[username]/AppData/LocalLow/Ludeon Studios/RimWorld by Ludeon Studios/Config
Note 1: the AppData folder may be hidden.
Note 2: the RimWorld folder within LocalLow may differ for various users, see this thread
Mac   Users/[username]/library/Application Support/Ludeon Studios/RimWorld/Config
Users/[username]/library/Caches/RimWorld/Config
Linux   /home/[username]/.config/unity3d/Ludeon Studios/RimWorld/Config

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

3. Force re-install. Sometimes Steam screws up updates. You need to delete the folders manually (not using the Steam interface).

-If you're on Steam:
  A: Shut down Steam.
  B: Delete this folder: Steam\SteamApps\common\RimWorld
  C: Delete this folder: Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\294100
  D: Open Steam, Install RimWorld, and play.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Just a heads up, the problem persist! it was only a temp fix =(

everytime you start Rimworld, you have to go through and delete reg keys

Goatly,
do you use maybe a 2. monitor ?
Then it is the same issue like at
https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=4805.msg489313#msg489313
and it is a problem with the current unity engine.

Rimworld 1.2 use unity engine 2019.2 while 1.3 use engine version: 2019.4 (latest version).

Maybe a dev can answer if it is possible to use the 1.2 engine with the 1.3 data.
But since the dev's rarely post/look here, maybe you should ask this at the developer discord.

From my experimenting after having the same problem it seems to stem from computer performance as I was able to load the game fine on 1.3 on a more powerful machine. It also seems to be related to how many mods you have loaded as I was able to launch it fine up to a certain number of mods, then anything over caused it to crash.

Update: with the Better Loading mod active I was able to see the point it crashed on which was something along the lines of "play data loading"
