Jump to navigation Jump to search
Development mode toolbar (red frame) on top of the screen, next to the colonist bar.

Development mode is a feature on the user interface that serves both as a debugging tool for developers and as a cheat menu for most other players.

When active, it is seen as an additional menu on the top of the screen.

Features

Items are shown from left to right in the picture.

DebugLog.png Debug log

An output log for debugging. Shows errors if they occur, as well as debug outputs.

It allows you to edit game data while the game is running. Currently limited to sound and colonist hairstyles.

ViewSettings.png View settings

Toggles special debug visuals, such as shooting hit chances, infestation chances and toggling fog (fog of war) and snow visibility.

It also allows some debug settings, for example, unlimited power, toggling damage, and fast research, learning (i.e. instant boost to lv 20 upon doing a task), ecology, crafting, caravans, etc.

Debug.png Debug actions menu

Forces a variety of things to happen. Many things can be done from here; spawning items and pawns, executing events, downing/ killing pawns, they are all done through this menu.

Save translation report

An option shown on the title screen, it generates a report about the currently-loaded language data stating which translations are missing, which are unnecessary, and other useful information for translators.

Options

Permanently disable

In the Options menu in-game, you have the choice to 'permanently' disable development mode. This prevents you from cheating using this.

You can reset it by deleting the 'DevModeDisabled' file can be found in the config folder

It can be retrieved through: Start+R > appdata > LocalLow > Ludeon Studios > Rimworld by Ludeon Studios > Config.

Debug Action Menu

Debug Action Menu with Royalty DLC installed.

There are many options in this menu, and several sub-menus. The search bar in the top right will highlight options matching the search criteria, but the spelling must exactly match the name of the option or part of it.

Commands prefaced with with "T:" seem to temporarily alter the mouse behavior to do execute the command on left click, with right click cancelling this behavior.

Commands ending with an ellipsis "..." seem to tend to open a submenu, but not commands that do so have the ellipsis and not all commands that have an ellipsis do so. Its meaning is currently unclear.
