We'll be closing sales for to the Backstory-in-Game package and Pirate King packages on November 7, 2017. The Name-in-game package will remain on sale. Anyone who already purchased any of these packages won't be affected, only new sales will be closed.

I'm closing these sales because the game is maturing and it's coming to the right time to make the content final. In addition, closing these will free up more time for us to work on the game itself.

Thanks everyone for all the great content submitted over the last few years! As any player can tell you, it's really enriched the game.

I’ve just released Alpha17b, a performance hotfix for Alpha17. Steam users will get it automatically. This is build 0.17.1557.

When we made the targeting AI smarter in Alpha 17, we also made it harder on the CPU. Players in late game were seeing drastically reduced performance. Alpha17b optimizes this and several other things. There are no changes to gameplay - just optimization of what's there already.

This update will work with your existing saved games, XML-only mods and (hopefully) most or all code mods.

If for any reason you want to continue on the older version, you can set your Steam beta branch to 'alpha17a'.

Sorry for any disruption! We’re also hard at work on Alpha 18.

Alpha 17 - On the Road has been released! This version brings roads and rivers to the world, new world quests, new tools for modders, new combat tools, smarter AI, and rebalancings and adjustments across the whole design.

I'm afraid that this build is not compatible with saved games from previous versions, or mods from previous versions. However, you can continue to use the old version until you're ready to update. If you're on Steam, to continue using the old version, go to your Steam Library, right-click on RimWorld, click Properties. Open the Betas tab and use the drop-down menu to select the alpha16 version. Restart Steam to force an update.

If you downloaded the game DRM-free, you can update whenever you like by re-downloading from your existing download link. Your link is always the same and always gives the latest version.

In the old builds, balance problems meant that some exploit-y strategies did work and obviated some of the challenges in the... Read more

Some official words from Tynan posted here:

"We recently asked whether players would rather have the bugfix-only update released, or if they’d prefer we just kept working and waited until we had new content to release.

The results aligned with my personal thinking, which is that the disruptive effect of a release (breaking various compatibilities) isn’t worth it for a bugfix-only release. So, we’ve been adding new content! Alpha 17 will basically be two updates combined, where one of them was a refinement-and-fix overhaul.

I’m not going to go into detail on exactly what’s coming (that’s what the update videos are for!) But here are some basic notes on things in progress. The update will focus on enriching the content in the world, and create more reasons to use the planet-travel caravan system:

  • Roads and rivers across the world (multiple categories of each).
  • Rivers across the world.
  • Redone enemy b...

Hey folks Ramsi here again, this time not in a news alert that will make ten of you throw a fit.

So here's the thing, because someone brought it up:

If you're looking for regular responses to thoughts you have, bug reports, or a mod you're using you should go to the forums at https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php

See, that was even bolded to make it much more obvious on how important that is! On here most of you are just going to be talking to other Steam users, and while that's great.. Tynan is a very busy dev. He doesn't always have time to talk on here because of how much work he's investing into the game.. and eating. Sometimes the man eats!

Our forum has a lot more activity, is often bustling with everyone who was part of the community before Steam, and also has Tynan far more active (still not that active) as... Read more

37Beers - I much appreciate it if you do :) But if you want to support me, it's best to buy it on the website instead of on Steam; Steam takes a cut.

After Steam release you'll get your key either way.

Muchas gracias!
