General To-do List

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

  • Pages: Assign tab currently only has a brief overview on the menu page. Outfits, Food policies and Drug policies each need individual pages. Mayoculpa (talk) 12:19, 5 February 2020 (UTC)
  • 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)
  • Menus#Schedule needs a section and image for showing the addition of meditation by Royalty. Harakoni (talk) 05:02, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Market values: Mindscrew, Flatscreen television & Ground-penetrating scanner have market values at odds with their calculated market value. They could be manually set or there could be a bug in the market value calculation (like there is for prestige armor) or the articles could be wrong. They need to be checked in game. Harakoni (talk) 08:10, 29 April 2021 (UTC)

Updates and maintenance needed on the Wiki

  • Freshen up the frontpage, and if nothing else, change from a table to div setup --> In progress by Pangaea
  • 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  • Update some of the default footer pages, as they seem outdated currently --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  • Purge outdated SMW entities: (see Statistics) --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
  • An RSS feed for news would be nice, but looks like we'd need this extension for it. Could perhaps put it on the frontpage then. Pangaea (talk) 13:21, 1 August 2019 (UTC)
  • 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

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 large jobs, many of the pages 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)

Page type Suggested detail/sections
  • 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
  • Acquistion/crafitng information standardized with note on whether it uses Drug Synthesis Speed or Drug Cooking Speed
  • High effects - both hediff, as well as recreation add and mood buff
  • Tolerance and Severity gains
  • Addiction effects
  • Withdrawal effects
  • Effects for mtb to chemical damage etc.
  • Analysis of 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. Additionally, a way to display quality information for different materials is also needed. Talk to User: Harakoni for this last bit - ideas are in teh workds for updating Template: Weapon Quality Table but work is needed.

Pawn stats

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)

1.2.2719 and 1.1.2654 Update

1.2.2719 and 1.1.2654 Update

As always. This time around, no need to strikeout completed items- just delete them right away. PigeonGuru ( talk | contribs | assist ) 04:51, 20 August 2020 (UTC)

The 1.2 release of RimWorld adds a variety of new content and a few new systems.

There are a few major parts to this update.

New stuff: Base game

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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).
  • Direct button to use drugs from inventory: This makes combat drugs more usable.
  • New visual effects:
    • Improvements to orbital bombardments. You can see and hear incoming projectiles and other details are improved.
    • EMP state on mechs or turrets, with electrical arcs and sparks.

New stuff: Royalty expansion

  • 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.
  • Shuttle pad for Empire bases: When you attack an Empire base it will have a shuttle pad, often with a shuttle on the pad about to take off. This just distinguishes these bases from other factions better.
  • Throne rooms in Empire bases:
  • Abasia disease incident: This random incident makes someone in the colony get paralytic abasia, which paralyzes them for a while.
  • Blood rot disease incident: This random incident makes someone in the colony get blood rot, which requires regular medical treatment for a while.
  • 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

  • Underground resources readout now shows what resource is in each underground cell and how many there are.
  • Storyteller now ignores HP for purposes of wealth calculation.
  • Monument placing feedback is improved. When you try to place a monument, now the specific reason it can't be placed is highlighted on the map and noted in a message.
  • Map generator doesn't generate little inaccessible islands any more (since they break various aspects of gameplay).
  • On the research tab, we now draw icons for techprint faction and research bench requirements (the latter as hyperlinks).
  • Quest helpers no longer spawn with the greedy trait.
  • Sort transporter contents list so humans are unloaded first, followed by animals, then by items.
  • Pawns of the same home faction (i.e. quest lodgers) will no longer arrest each other.


  • Added temporary factions system. These are used in the refugee quest, but can be used in other places as well.


  • Fix: Anima tree doesn't heal properly.
  • Fix: Joy meditation can cause pawns to fall out of bed.
  • Fix: Condition causer destroyed message sent whenever it was despawned instead of just when it was actually destroyed.
  • Fix: Haircuts don't display their partly-transparent sections. This mostly made the shaved haircut invisible.
  • Fix: Many neural heat gizmos shown if many psycasters are selected.
  • Fix: Pawns interrupting their throne meditation for other jobs.
  • Fix: Insect glowpods affect anima meditation.
  • Fix: LOS calcs for purpose of royal aid don't match LOS for guns.
  • Fix: Humans with 0% hearing get thoughts from listening to instruments.
  • Fix: Pawn can get random inspiration while not capable of being conscious.
  • Fix: Peace talks can generate for factions with goodwill rewards disabled.
  • Fix: Thoughts about not being master of a bonded animal appear even if pawn is too low-skilled to be master of their bonded animal.
  • Fix: Banishing quest lodgers causes "banished" thoughts.
  • Fix: Manhunter animal quest and incedent don't cap out at 100 animals.
  • Fix: Psylink counts as an artificial part for a transhumanist.
  • Fix: Pawns not gaining comfort from throne while meditating.
  • Fix: Colonists can lose their psylink entirely when being resurrected.
  • Fix: While paused, musical instruments constantly loop, this also occurs while in the trade menu.
  • Fix: Pawn in cryptosleep requires bedroom.
  • Fix: Some raid pawn kind defs allow Brawler trait while having ranged weapons.
  • Fix: It's possible to use doors as electricity-less coolers.
  • Fix: Just claimed artificial structures don't affect nature focus objects.
  • Fix: Pawns meditate in bed without being sick. They should go for a better meditation spot.
  • Fix: Mechanoids not waking up if you skip them.
  • Fix: Non-royal colonists will not wear royal apparel even if outfit requires it.
  • Fix: Empire is hostile to neutral ancients by default.
  • Fix: Incorrect calculation for packaged survival meal bulk recipe.
  • Fix: Wild men who are incapable of violence can hunt animals for food.
  • Fix: Shuttles sometimes land on natural roofs.
  • Fix: Some enemies spawn with smoke launchers who shouldn't.


  • Reworked how destroyed buildings generate slag so small buildings don't generate giant slag blooms; they'll leave steel behind instead.
  • Implemented toggle for anima trees that toggles whether building ghosts are showing connections to meditation foci or not.


  • Increase rewards per points for quests game-wide.
  • Reduce the threat points for fights generated off the home map, and increase bandit camp quest rewards.
  • Double the rate of nuzzling by animals to buff mood-oriented pets.
  • Extend the thought for when you buried someone in a sarcophagus.
  • Reduce monument sizes about 15%.
  • Increase toxic fallout earliestDay from 20 to 60. Reduce base chance from 0.14 to 0.12. Increase volcanic winter earliest day from 30 to 60.
  • Reduce anima tree regrowth check cycle from 40 days to 30 days.
  • Ship chunks now leave a component if killed, even if not deconstructed.
  • Reduce blood rot severity per day gain from 60% to 40%. Already done. Jimyoda (talk) 14:28, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
  • Reduce chance for diseases in caravans by 4x.
  • Min market value for neuroformer quest rewards reduced from 720 to 600.
  • Reduced the selection weight of hostile factions as quest askers to 15%.
  • Disabled paralysis in hospitality quests.


  • Fix: Wake-up meditation focus gain is overtuned, should be 20% not 40%. Also it needs to be expressed in the right format of % per day.
  • Fix: Lodgers with blood rot and abasia spawn with equipment that immediately gets dropped.

Updates needed before 1.0


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.
