Any other future expansion planned?
Even if I love Rimworld I didn't buy the latest DLC because it just isn't my cup of tea.

I was hoping for something different (i.e.: like different worlds / themes) and since I don't follow this forum I'm wondering if anyone has heard anything along these lines.

Thanks

TLDR, hopefully! but, content comes veeeeeeery slow for this game.

id love more, as i want to support the game. but, at the same time, i hope not.
iv played the game since pre-alpha 6. i hate to say it, but Tynnan is an idea thief or effort thief.
the vast majority of the good things in the game (i could list a long, long list) are old mods incorperated right into the game.
now, if Tynnan wants to clear it up that he gets permission first, then i will wholly change my stance. i truly love this game. it just simply comes down to, i have never read any articles or mod creator call outs or sum such

The devs haven't shared any information regarding that, so no one knows. Maybe? Maybe not? Your guess is as good as anyone else's =)

I concur. tylan is such a low thief, how dare he steal other people ideas... like horses, no way he came up with that ♥♥♥♥ on his own. and those horse assets look just like the other horse assets I saw in one of the mods. burn the thief.

he did actually buy those horse assets from that modder, and employed that modder as an artist for some royalty assets. this is well known.

I don't know about that... I'm not here to start a flame war against the dev.
For all I care they can have children working in the basement to code Rimworld... /jk

I mean, it's a game and it's entertaining, if they do more of what I like then I'll buy it.
Don't really care about all the politics and possible shenanigans. But thanks for the info lol

I'd say a tentative yes. For a long time, there had been some 'things' in the original games or previous alphas/beta that would give hints. Example was the Royal Bed you could make. Now we have this DLC.

So maybe from that logic, we'll need to look at what things or lore in the game that doesn't fit with anything else. Like, for instance, in royalty dlc, anima as a concept was introduced to add to the Archotech mystery. Mechnoids creators would seemingly become more active and created more things to kill humanity. Why though, I got no idea.

Lots of unanswered questions

Maybe, but what I really hope for is kind of a Rimworld "1 and a half" with the same mechanics but in a completely different context / theme.

BTW: do you know of any good Rimworld "Total Conversion" Mod?

accusations without factchecking. in this case it came back at ya right away. lets leave it at that.

thats a somewhat narrow view you have there sir. nowadays everythig is stolen in some kinda way. every story has been writing before. every song has been composed before. all in one way or anotherjust because every direction has been explored to pretty much its fullest. in these times its more about taken whats known and turn it into something new - giving it its own twist.

to my knowledge you cant protect ideas - only the things that result from said idea (be it designs, techniques, products or whatnot).

all mods that you claim have been incorporated into the game may have only been adopted as an idea. Tynan stated when this kinda discussion came up regarding royalty and 'stealing' mods that all code has been made from scratch. the eception in 1.1 is vanilla animals expanded which has been partially implemented into the game with permission of the modder himself.

to get back to the topic at hand: i think there will be at least one more dlc coming. back when royalty was released it sounded like tynan was planning to make more than one.

the only mod i can think of worth calling a conversion would be save our ship 2. while others may be extensive as well they fit more into the expansion kind of category

Literally in the credits of the game he credits mod authors that gave permissions for mods to join the game. The animals mod author is listed in the art credits. This is just a factually incorrect line of reasoning that is verified within the very game. Tynan has already credited people.

When Royalty came out I made this very same accusation. Tynan personally responded back to me and clarified with exactly this. I looked and there it was. So I jumped to conclusions, looked the fool and felt the need to rescind my previous accusations.

Tynan did use modder's work, but those modders either got compensated for their work or Tynan took them into the fold and they now work directly for Ludeon and are collecting a paycheck from it.

Tynan is the game developer with the most integrity in the business. A lot of his critics who claim he is a thief or greedy are unfounded. He takes pride in his work and wants his work to speak for itself. I wish more developers behaved like him.

I had a look at that mod: thanks for the tip, seems a good concept, I'll try it next time I'll start a new game. Kudos. :popular:

On another note... you guys should maybe start a separate topic to discuss about the dev's integrity, I'm starting to feel like my discussion has been hijacked lol :lunar2019piginablanket:

Must be hard for devs to know when to stop developing on a game. Especially one that turned out to be a huge success.

Same thing happens with movies getting turned into franchises.

What starts as a creative endeavor turns into the mundane business of iteration.

He does work with the modders alot its refreshing to see-- you mentioned the Alpha Animals people like Oskar Potaki or w/e who does VFE too but he also hired Fluffy. its also inevitable that he would be addressing the same issues and areas in the game that are lacking and we have had to made mods to flesh out ourselves-- like the horses, of course he was going to add horses and of course a modder looked at this game before they were there and thought "why doesnt it have horses?"

What dissapointed me about the Royalty DLC wasn't that it was influenced by any mod that I'm aware of (?) but the opposite, like he's just left the core gameplay things to modders now and we get an expansion with wierd psycasting abilities that would have been much more appropriate for a mod IMO-- its all backwards right now and he cant change course without doing work that modders have already done

I kind of see it as abandonware like Starbound and Tynan as the modder, Oskar and Fluffy and other modders are the ones making core game content now tynan just is making like magic powers and cute outfits idk

I miss fluffy's mods ;)
Seriously though...on your comment of Royalty not being influenced that you know off...try your hand at Rimworld of Magic or that star wars mod that implements the force...both have pawns gain extra abilites and a LOT of the abilities I see in Royalty I can directly link to RoM counterparts. Other elements I recognise from the Empires mod...

But it comes down to what someone else said on this thread...by now; it's all been done before and there's no way even Tynan or his team can be aware of ALL the niche or popular mods that are floating out there (I just proved that to you with RoM). In that regard Rimworld's biggest succes is ALSO it's "downfall" in that people got REALLY enthusiastic and within the span of it's EA-period just about everything that COULD be done with the game WAS done.

And then there's the argument that most devs these days add a line to their EULA that any and all content made for this game by modders is, in some way or form (or sometimes even directly) property of the Dev for allowing you open access to the engine....Tynan just isn't a jerk about it like some companies we know of and gives credit where it's due.
Probably, but not soon. There is open job application for someone who knows how to implement netcode, so my lucky guess is that there will be official multiplayer someday... but i would not expect any next official DLC in like 3-5 years or so.

I see. Honestly MP is not my cup of tea either... my schedule is a bit difficult to coordinate with other people, plus I hate arseholes ruining other people's games with griefing, cheating, cheeseing, messing around and such. :winter2019neutralbulb:
