This is amazing. Pretty much exactly as I imagined it.

I love the little helper mascot in the glitterworld meds.

You've got a great art style.

curious if developer is working on another game?

I lol's at this one but must admit - I was waiting for the "incapable of: caring" to come up :p

Thank you Tynan for being awesome! This update got me back into RimWorld and put another 100+ hours on my (actual) playtime.

That's real dedication - I'm pretty sure it was released less than 100 hours ago :)

The problem is that I don't have a mod named "Modcheck". I don't even remember ever intalling such a mod. Does anyone else have similar problems? A quick fix would be much appreciated.

ModCheck was updated to be compatible with new build 2282. But some mods included an old version of ModCheck. If you install new ModCheck by yourself, the old versions of ModCheck in your other mods won't be used.

Update 1.0.2282 released

about 2 months ago - Tynan on Steam - Thread - Direct
I've just pushed an update to build 1.0.2282.

  • Game loading has been optimized, especially with mods. You should see significantly faster loading.
  • Player-created content updated.
  • Localizations updated.
This update should be compatible with existing savegames and mods.

EDIT: Compatibility issue with Zetrith's Multiplayer mod has been fixed by some very responsive modders!

Damn cold shoulder man

I've seen this thought a few times, though, so I figured it was worth explaining why it works the way it does.

A major goal in UI design is to reduce noise. You don't want to repeat the same information if the player can easily deduce that information. Otherwise you're forcing the player to read words that don't carry information, which increases cognitive load for no benefit.

For example, every character in RimWorld is somewhere on the spectrum of industriousness. Some are lazy, some are typical, and some are hard-working. However, since the vast majority of characters are of average industriousness, we reduce noise by omitting this information. When the player sees nothing about industriousness, an average level in this trait is implied. Players understand this ~100% of the time.

It's the game UI version of Strunk and White's classic writing advice: "Omit needless words."

The same goes for the other traits in the game - psychopathy, move speed, nat...

Trying to add a WeatherOverlay

about 2 months ago - /u/TynanSylvester on Reddit - Thread - Direct

Originally posted by ----buster----

I had a look at the way WeatherOverlay creates its material, which is the MatLoader class, which requires a "path" parameter. It then appends this path to "Materials/" and casts an Object created by Resources.Load(appended_path) to a Material.

I guess my question is now, where is the "Materials/"? Is it an actual folder, or is this just a pseudo-folder system that Unity uses?

Anyways, I'll try looking at the original assets with some sort of program like you said, thanks for the suggestion.

Edit0: couldn't seem to find any legit ways to look into Unity assets.

Edit1: also just noticed that the "moveSpeedMultiplier" in WeatherDefs doesn't seem to have any effect. Is this deprecated? Edit2: I'm stupid, it does work

Materials/ is in the unity assets. I think there is software that can browse unity asset packs.

When do they post? (GMT +0)
