Filth

From RimWorld Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Filth is something on the ground that has negative beauty. It is most commonly simply "dirt", but can be much more unpleasant substances as well.

Filth is removed by colonists assigned to Cleaning. Only filth in the Home area will be cleaned, anything outside the area will be ignored. Note that a home area is automatically created when placing buildings, structures or zones, and is not automatically removed when a structure or zone is removed, so players may wish to reduce or limit some of their overall "home" areas.*

(* This can be done via the Architect/Zone menu. A player can also toggle the addition of these automatic Home zones on/off, via the icons in the extreme lower right corner of the screen.)

Note that raw dirt will not collect mere "dirt" from foot traffic, and therefore may remain cleaner (if still not very clean) than a constructed floor that is effected by multiple dirty tiles. If introduced and not cleaned up, other substances can and will effect a dirt floor, adding to the total filth.

Summary Table

Certain unsightly objects, i.e. vomit, have one value when under a roof and a lower value when unroofed. This simulates the general disgust of seeing eyesores indoors versus encountering them outside. Some messes can be spread by pawns tracking through them and others can be washed away by rain.

The effect of filth on outdoors beauty is 30% of the effect indoors.
