Colonies with multiple ideoligions have specific benefits

Hey everyone! RimWorld update 1.3.3117 is now out. This one comes with a long list of new stuff and improvements. Full changelist is below.

Multi-ideo viability One key thing I wanted to do with this update was make it more rewarding to have a colony with diverse beliefs. While it should certainly be possible to run your colony as an ideological monoculture, I always wanted it to be possible to claim the benefits of multiple belief systems at the cost of needing to take a wider diversity of needs into account. This would also make recruiting easier, since it wouldn't be necessary to convert everyone during the recruiting process.

We made several changes to achieve this goal.

Now, colonists can participate in rituals of other ideoligions, strengthen those rituals by their presence, and gain mood and other benefits from them. Bigoted colonists will get a negative thought from participating in other beliefs, but the benefit from the ritual can outweigh their inner conflict. Since rituals can have quite specific effects, it can be very useful to have a wide toolbox of rituals available.

Previously, colonists would be very unhappy if their beliefs were violated by others, and would hate everyone who acted against their beliefs. Now they don't mind as much if something they disagree with is happening elsewhere in the colony, and don't so intensely hate anyone who does something they wouldn't. They will still care as before about their own actions.

Previously, in order to celebrate a ritual, it needed to be obligated by having three believers in the colony. This is no longer the case * just one believer is now enough to initiate a ritual, while obligations to do the ritual still start at three believers.

I'll continue to monitor how this plays out and make adjustments as needed to maximize the number of viable play paths you can choose from.

Compatibility: This update should be compatible with all savegames and mods.

As always, don't hesitate to review Ideology on its Steam page!

Multi-ideo colony viability[edit]

  • Pawns of any ideo can now spectate any ritual, even if it's not of their own ideo.
  • Rebalanced social ideo thought opinion offsets to make multi-ideo colonies much more viable.
  • Allow celebrating rituals for an ideo even if there's not enough members to create an obligation.
  • Members of ideoligions that dislike diversity get a negative thought from participating in rituals from other ideoligions.
  • Ritual setup dialog now says what ideoligion the ritual comes from.

New stuff[edit]

  • Gaining, changing, or removing a role now requires a simple ritual.
  • Some things, like rock chunks, are now considered beautiful when outdoors but ugly when indoors. This solves a problem where a person standing in a nice forest will think their surroundings are ugly.

  • Skullspikes now display whose skull is contained inside on their inspect pane.

  • Improved UI feedback in trade window when pawn refuses to sell another pawn into slavery due to the ideo.
  • Having a missing tongue now gives a negative mood thought because it's frustrating when you can't speak because your tongue was cut out.
  • We now warn the player if they are trying to put a pawn in a regeneration or medic cycle that would not heal any conditions.
  • Conditions that will be or can be healed by a biosculpter cycle are listed in a confirmation dialog on ordering a pawn to enter or load another into the biosculpter.
