General To-do List[edit]

Needs to be done list: (Feel free to do these if you know how!) (italic = minor, bold = major)

  • Changelogs imply mech commanders can be summoned when the mechanoid faction is disabled. Confirm and add to pages.
  • Combat Power on mechanoid pages. automate column on mechanoid hive
  • Defs: Def elements might be something useful to add in for technical reference/modder wannabes. This stuff is being constantly revised and constructed upon, so it's your choice whether to make it its own page or to integrate it as part of another page (e.g. Colonist). I've only covered a small amount of defs (see Category:Defs for a list), and that was a year ago. Longbyte1 (talk) 05:05, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
  • Properties: Need to have descriptions added to pages - some of the older ones have unknown purposes and some documentation, even if it appears obvious, would be good. Harakoni (talk) 01:07, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
  • Chair super page: As above but for "sitting furniture". - Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 04:05, 14 March 2022 (UTC)
  • Animal Combat Power: Major only because of the scope, Combat power should be added to the infobox, and the combat power of each animal should be added so it can be called. Atm the only way to find that info is the xmls and thats not useful for a lot of non-tech savvy player. Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 11:52, 15 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Goodwill template: Some way of expressing the variabliltiy of goodwill gains due to their scaling that can be easily linked in-line. The need for this arises out of the scaling for changes that brings them closer to their neutral position whether that be hostile or not. So if a player is relying on a good action getting their ally from 80 to 100, then they might do the action on the wiki's recommendation and then only get part of what they expect. Part of the issue is that this system is not fully understood/detailed on the wiki. Can't explain, or even decide what needs to be done, when you don't understand yourself. Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 04:37, 17 October 2022 (UTC)
  • Insectoid pollution stimulus: effects need to be added to the relevant insectoid pages, and possible ailments. - Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 12:24, 12 November 2022 (UTC)
  • Deathrest building default text: A default spiel for every deathrest building covering the shared mechanics of deathrest buildings. How they bond, connection distance, deathrest capacity limitations, bonding etc. Ideally it can be placed in a template ala Template:Apparel_Social_Impact_Note so it can standard across all pages and updated all at once.
  • Lifestage and gendered names for animals: Lots of animals have different names at different life stages e.g. a baby cat is called a kitten. They need to be documented in the intro of the page, bolded for their first use as with the animal name, and ideally a redirect to the page from the alternate names. Some are complete, but not all. Similarly, some names are gendered - in RW, the cow species has female cows and male bulls. These should be included similarly - afaik these are all done, but any missing ones noticed while adding the lifestages should be added. - Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 12:21, 18 March 2023 (UTC)
  • Pyromaniac mood boosts: different firey objects add stacks to a moodlet for pyromaniacs. these stacks should be noted on the individual pages.

Updates and maintenance needed on the Wiki[edit]

  • Add an Admin noticeboard --> DONE by Pangaea
    • Not properly integrated or accessible from the rest of the wiki and thus of limited use. More work is likely needed Harakoni (talk) 08:10, 29 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Add Community portal to the Sidebar (and maybe re-order it slightly? See Wikipedia's system)
  • Update some of the default footer pages, as they seem outdated currently --> Partially done by Pangaea
  • Given a fitting license, borrow content from other wikis and improve and expand our Help sections
  • Add articles for each technology and skill, with fitting templates
  • Purge outdated SMW entities: (see Statistics) --> DONE by Hypolite
  • Edit or make new screenshots without (so many) UI elements, as seen for instance in the Events page
  • Template: STDT tables don't play nice with Template: infobox main and ToC as described here. This issue doesn't occur with wikitable class tables, so it is likely an issue with the STDT table and not the infobox. It might be related to the definitions in MediaWiki:Common.css as thats where the "c_01" values are defined. Unfortunately I don't know enough about the wiki formatting or the .css to fix it. There is a working hack but ideally we could make a fix thats native to STDT and not have to worry about it anymore. Harakoni (talk) 11:43, 1 January 2021 (UTC)
  • Finish the page Help:Templates#Creating_a_template.


  • Install the MobileFrontend-extension -- Crasheripot
  • LinkSuggest: Useful for new users to easier create links without knowing the ins and outs of the page names.
  • RandomSelection: This can be neat on the main page for various gameplay tips and such, which then get randomly selected. Not sure if there would be a good use for it with this game, but I have seen it used to good effect on other wikis, such as Witcher 3.

Large projects[edit]

The following page groups need to have a standardized format with adequate detail decided, have that standard applied over the entire group, and then brought up to quality. These are all relatively large, multi-page jobs, many including many pages that aren't just non-standard but outright stubs, but it can be done piecemeal. The important part is getting a suitable standard first.

I'm not sure anyone will take this on, but I'd appreciate any help, even if its just adding suggestions to the suggested standards below Harakoni (talk) 05:50, 3 August 2021 (UTC)

Adding contributors for volunteers to sign up with. There is no pressure to take on the entire project but if you add your name, I'll know to ask your opinions/keep you apprised, and help you in any way to get these projects moving. Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) 04:54, 19 March 2022 (UTC)
Page type Suggested detail/sections Contributors
Categories/All The grand recategorization and retyping - checking all page types and categories and reordering them in the same pattern as the stockpile/bills menu. Requires recategorisation, page moves, new categories etc Contributors

Plants need a consistent format standard that applies to all pages - plantables and non plantables, crop plants, decorative plants, wild plants, special plants eetc. This also involes ensuring every page has a variant gallery and has all the stats in the infobox Some suggestions (more needed):

  • For plantables: Growing section using Template: Grow Table
  • For plantables: Economy - Proper analysis on their production compared to other producers of the same type (e.g. Food or Wood plants), as well as economic concerns - profitabiltiy with and without crafting, work/product, work/silver, tiles/product/day, tiles/silver/day etc.
  • Production strategies, e.g. how worth each is to put in hydroponics, greenhouses, whether to wall in, esp relevant for devilstrand
  • Trainability, diet, habitats, combat skills and analysis (seriously lacking atm), production economy, stragegies for combat/acquisition/use

See Go-juice for an example.

  • Acquistion/crafting information standardized
  • Summary
    • Instanteous effects e.g. recreation +X% is instantaneous, but the mood buff and other hediffs are long term and have a duration.
    • High effects
    • Tolerance and Severity gains
    • Addiction effects
    • Withdrawal effects
    • Effects for mtb to chemical damage etc.
  • Analysis
    • Effectivness for use (e.g. combat buff for Yayo and Go juice, mood buffs for social and hard drugs etc.)
    • Comparison of production compared to other drugs in the same class as part of above
    • Comparison of economies, like is currently available for Flake and Yayo, but for all drugs. If you're only selling it, you don't need to assume psychoid plants are the only thing you can grow - needs analysis per pawn work (inc. sowing, harvesting, and crafting work), per unit time, and per tile of grow space.
Weapons Largely have a functional standard following the traditional Acquistion/Summary/Analysis/Quality Table method, but pages are all out of date and in need of massive updates.
Production facilities Workbenches like the smithy, tailoring becnh etc.
  • Acquisition - self evident
  • Summary - general information about it use, with both the use of Template:Recipe List to what is produced there (except when theres only 1 thing produced there) and a list of bills as not everything is a recipe for that list.
  • Analysis - how vital is it to get, and comparison between fueled/hand version vs electric.
  • Template:Building Stats Table
Recreation Standardized recreation comparison - tables with time to recreate etc.
Traps IEDs and spike traps. Standardisation and comparisons - see Security table for start.
Sculpture Sculpture, Small sculpture, Large sculpture, Grand sculpture, Terror sculpture
  • Lore
  • Variants
  • Ideologies
  • Pawns (from pawn tables where needed)
  • Faction Bases
  • Raid "rewards" (raid leaders will often carry silver, drugs, jade, resources etc as a reward, this is dependent on the faction)
  • Caravans?
  • Reinforcements?
  • Raid types and constitution?

And then add other sections and subsections as needed.

Artificial body parts Almost all of them need a dedicated summary section of their mechanics
Illumination area Add similar images in style/quality/content to Standing lamp#Illumination area by User:SyntaxTerror to all items that put off light. Torch lamp, sun lamp, wood fired generators, mech nodes, the ancient lamps from ideology, etc.
Maintenance Not a set of pages, but for things that occasionally break down and need a component to fix. A standardized format for the Summary sections is needed as well as an entry on Component. I actually can't immediately find any mentions of this mechanic on the wiki, so either its not described or its poorly interlinked/SEO'd.
Materials, resources, and Ore Materials and crafting resources have a rough standard with Acquisition/Summary (where necessary)/Usage/Analysis however there are nonstandard mat pages, and there is a lack of standardisation in Usage beyond the use of Template:Ingredient List. There also is discussion needed on how to display stuffables on stuff pages. Its possible that another template similar to Ingredient List but for stuffables (Talk to Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk) if interested) is needed to display all items that can be stuffed with the material in question. Materials don't just occupy one or the other e.g. some recipes require Gold and others require any metal including gold. Ore pages also need to be split off from their materials.
Ruins Needs a standard format to be created to be dropped onto all the ancient items. Some hwve some interesting stat combinations, but generally they just need a copy paste spiel developed to place on all of them. Occurence is the one trip up - it might occasionally be relelvant but how items spawn isn't clear.

Notable things format has to account for:

Psycasts Pages have been created and the basic infobox is on each page, as is the version history relating to each cast. But the mechanical details need to be filled out, the remaining "caster must be capable of violence " parameters need to be set, the Template:Acquisition section for it needs a rewrite and the analyses need vetting and expansion. Once the parameters are finished, the table on Psycasts needs to automated (likely partial ownly due to effect details) including links to the relevant pages Harakoni (Wiki Moderator) (talk)

Butchery project[edit]

There are a factors to butchering that need to be verified by actual in-game testing (not just assumptions, word of mouth, or trusting current page information and/or version histories) in the current version, have their specific mechanics determined, and then disseminated to the various relevant points including:

The following are the things to be checked - don't delete wrong issues, mark them with a Ex.png. Feel free to add issues you think need to be checked.

Issue Issue Confirmed Mechanics Mechanics Confirmed
Difficulty affect butchery yield Check.png By default only Blood and dust (80%) and Losing is fun (90%) have values lower than 100%. Custom difficulties can change it from 0-500% Check.png
The 66% multiplier for damaged corpses applies to both meat and leather Check.png As stated in issue Check.png
"euthanize by cut" operation doesn't cause 66% multiplier for damaged corpses (assuming no other injuries) Check.png As stated in issue Check.png
The throat cutting done when an animal is tagged for hunting and downed but not dead doesn't cause 66% multiplier for damaged corpses if the animal was downed by some non-damaging means (such as a psychic shock lance that does not cause a brain burn) Check.png As stated in issue but also what methods for causing that downing without damage and if any of them aren't damage but do cause it? ?
The Animal Sacrifice ritual Content added by the Ideology DLC doesn't cause 66% multiplier for damaged corpses (assuming no other injuries) Check.png As stated in issue Check.png
Malnutrition causes lower meat returns ? Multiplier scales linearly between 0% at 0% malnutrtion up to 40% at 100% malnutrition is 40% ?
If above is correct, does Malnutrition also affect leather yield ? As stated in issue ?
Lost body parts reduce meat yield Check.png What are the mechanics of this? Is it body part coverage based? ?

Tl;dr there is conflicting reports scattered around the wiki. We need to collate them, check them, and then disseminate them to all the relevant places. Potentially templatize them if necessary.

The following stats are the ones currently in the game as of Version/1.2.2753, several aren't even on the wiki, and many of the pages are out date and/or are not properly structured to automatically link to the relevant capacity Harakoni (talk) 05:52, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

  • 1.4.3555 - Chemically-dependent xenotypes can take their desired drug by right-clicking it, even if their ideoligion forbids it.
  • 1.4.3555 - Added a positive "child not in growth vat" thought to "Growth Vats: Prohibited" precept.
  • 1.4.3555 - Update the description for "child not in growth vat" to make it clearer that it relates to the colonist's child, not just any child.
  • 1.4.3555 - Slightly reduce the impact that player mechanoids have on raid points.
  • 1.4.3555 - Update non-combatant debug view to not draw timer on pawns which are permanently combatants.

Big new stuff[edit]

  • 1.4.3555 - Added a new category of precept: Preferred xenotypes.
  • 1.4.3555 - Single-xenotype NPC factions have a chance to generate with Preferred Xenotypes about themselves.
  • 1.4.3555 - For the purposes of precepts, autonomous weapons include colony-controlled mechanoids.

Smaller new stuff[edit]

  • 1.4.3555 - Added a UI button for absorbing xenogerms of appropriate targets, to help players understand that this option exists.
  • 1.4.3555 - Added social thoughts for giving a lesson to a child and the child receiving a lesson.
  • 1.4.3555 - If a child is unarmed and hasn’t participated in combat at all, raiders will treat them similarly to harmless livestock. This means the raiders will deprioritize them as targets and not hunt them down. It makes unexpected combat more survivable for kids, opens up those “porkchop hiding in the shed” stories and might create some rimworldy strategies.
  • 1.4.3555 - Melee raiders now ignore non-combatants that aren't in LOS when choosing new targets (previously only ranged-attack raiders did).
  • 1.4.3555 - Factionless pawns can spawn with any defined xenotype including those from mods and those which are player-created. Player-created xenotypes must be referred to in an ideoligion, or used as a player starting colonist, to spawn.
  • 1.4.3555 - Added more varieties of yttakin pawn kinds. This means more variety of yttakin raiders and traders.

  • 1.4.3555 - We now display market value on colony mechs’ inspect pane.
  • 1.4.3555 - Pawn apparel generation takes into account min and max temperature stats per individual pawn rather than per xenotype. This means that yttakin will be less likely to spawn with parkas (they generally don’t need them) and so will look cooler.
  • 1.4.3555 - When a bloodfeeder feeds on a person, the hemogen they gain is now related to how much blood was left in the target. This solves some logical incoherencies, and an exploit that involved keeping a deathless blood-farm and bloodfeeding on them over and over.
  • 1.4.3555 - As people grow up, their aging rate now smooth scales from child age rate to adult age rate over several years. This prevents the problem of having a lot of 13-year-olds in the colony after raising children.
  • 1.4.3555 - If child enemies are disabled in the storyteller settings, refugees with children will not betray and attack (because that makes children your enemy). We reduced the chance of children spawning in refugee hospitality quests to mitigate balance impact of this.
  • Display recipe ingredient counts on recipe float menu option tooltip.
  • 1.4.3555 - Added a "(disliked food)" parenthetical warning on the right-click menu when telling colonists to feed themselves or a patient a food that the eater would dislike. This helps players predict what will happen.
  • 1.4.3555 - A caregiver feeding a patient will now feed them ideologically-venerated food sources if there are no non-venerated food sources.
  • 1.4.3555 - Player is given the choice to set mechs to escort when a mechanitor leaves a map.

  • 1.4.3555 - If player sends a pregnant colonist on a “pawn lending” quest in a shuttle, and she gives birth during the quest, the baby will be returned with her instead of being kept by the questgiver.
  • 1.4.3555 - Added a thing category for mechanitor body parts (used on stockpile config etc.)

  • 1.4.3555 - Show birth letter for babies born from lent colonists in a PawnLend quest.

New stuff: Base game[edit]

  • 1.2.2719 - Raid loot generation: Previously raids would just drop whatever rewards were associated with the characters in that raid. Now, each raid generates a single core reward like a stack of drugs, medicine, jade, or plasteel. The reward is chosen semi-randomly according to the raider faction, and placed in the inventory of a few of the raiders. This allows us and users to accurately tune raid rewards, and solves issues where higher difficulties got bigger rewards.
  • 1.2.2719 - Automatic caravan setup: The caravan setup screen now automatically loads enough food and medicine for the journey. This can be overridden if desired. This interface was also restructured to ask for the route first, and to clean up placement of some UI elements. Overall, caravan forming takes less effort and fewer clicks.
  • 1.2.2719 - New system for handling time limits on caravan encounter maps. Previously on encounter maps, the player caravan was just automatically reformed after a certain amount of time. Now, the colonists will be detected by enemies after some time. Later, enemy reinforcements will begin arriving to attack. The player can choose when to leave, and this scenario can play out even on maps where other enemies remain (e.g. If player is executing a siege).

New stuff: Royalty expansion[edit]

  • 1.2.2719 - Bandits set up problem causer incident: This is a new way hostiles can threaten you besides raiding you. Now, sometimes they will set up a camp near your colony from which they will harass you using some kind of problem causer device, like a weather controller or smoke spewer. You have to attack the camp and eliminate it.
  • 1.2.2719 - Abasia disease incident: This random incident makes someone in the colony get paralytic abasia, which paralyzes them for a while.
  • 1.2.2719 - Blood rot disease incident: This random incident makes someone in the colony get blood rot, which requires regular medical treatment for a while.
  • 1.2.2719 - Abasia joiner incident: In this random incident, someone joins you, but they have paralytic abasia, so they must recover from that before they can work. It's your choice whether you want to heal them and let them join, or handle them another way.

Improvements and adjustments[edit]

  • 1.2.2719 - Underground resources readout now shows what resource is in each underground cell and how many there are.

Updates needed before 1.0[edit]


Since the contents of this section are a bit harder to document and not as relevant to the majority of people visiting the wiki, I will put a collapse here for the time being.

  • Modders can now add “def modifiers” which, instead of replacing a whole def, change specific fields of that def. This allows multiple mods to change the same def without wiping each others’ changes (unless they change the same field, of course).
  • Information on how to use def modifiers is in this forum thread: [https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=32735.0]
  • Various enums are now defs so modders can add new ones (TrainableIntelligence , DamageArmorCategory, ImpactSoundType, ReservationLayer, BillRepeatMode, PrisonerInteractionMode, FleshType).
  • GUI tables (like most of the main tabs along the bottom of the screen) are now defined by data, making it easier to add, rearrange, sort, and change columns on the UI.
  • Increasing skill relevance
  • Mining skill reworked: Steeper speed penalty for low skill. Mining yield is now slightly dependent on mining skill.
  • Work tab boxes are easier to identify skill level for visually.
