An autobong is a machine added by the Ideology DLC. It creates a smoke cloud with a radius of 5 tiles, and anyone in the cloud will become high on smokeleaf over time.


Autobongs can be constructed once the Microelectronics research to be completed if the High life meme is part of the constructor's ideoligion. It requires Stuff 100 Stuff (Metallic/Woody), Smokeleaf leaves 25 Smokeleaf leaves, Component 3 Component.


The autobong consumes Smokeleaf leaves 1.66 smokeleaf leaves per day as long as it is lit. It can hold up to 25 leaves at a time, for a maximum run time of 15.06 days.

It outputs light in a 10 tile radius, with the nearest 7.175 tiles being above 50% light level and considered lit.

While running, it produces a smoke cloud in a radius of 5 tiles around itself. Any non-mechanoid pawn inside that cloud is affected by the smokeleaf high, with severity increasing by 0.005 per second. It is unknown if this smoke cloud affects shooting accuracy like blind smoke.[Detail needed]


The autobong provides an easy +12 mood buff at the cost of only a minor amount of electricity (easily powered with chemfuel or wood generators), a relatively small amount of smokeleaf leaves, and a slight drop in consciousness. These can be turned on in recreation rooms or workshops at certain times, such as to calm down pawns with bad mood. "Therapy bedrooms" can be created by placing an autobong in a room and unhappy pawns can be swapped in and out when needed. Be careful, as if a pawn with a consciousness level of 30 and below passes through a smoke cloud for an extended period of time, they will die from a lack of consciousness.

It can be used offensively to provide a consciousness penalty to raiders, providing a modest penalty to their aiming and movement. Care should be taken to put it within range of the entrance while still putting it as far out of harm's way as possible. Be careful not to let your pawns restock it while a raid is in progress.
