Machines
« on: August 25, 2021, 05:48:48 PM »

I was wondering... in the lore of Rimworld is there a particular reason why some things are low tech while others are high tech?

I would imagine a computerised machining bench to be less technologically advanced than human bionics and making simple land vehicles like cars are significantly easier than space ships.

I'm conscious that in terms of gameplay, not having autonomous things gives pawns "jobs" to do and the exclusion of vehicles makes for more of a challenge when travelling across the map. but i wondered if there was canonical justification for why this sort of tech isn't used anymore?

Check out this page from the wiki — https://rimworldwiki.com/wiki/Lore#Varied_technology_levels

The short and sweet: the rims have so much war everyone keeps getting blasted back to the Stone Age
