Requires Harmony above it in the mod order.

would it be possible to have a visible sign saying they're using rubber bullets?

It often is (and in real life too!). The difference is scaled damage and no bleeding while they're down, but they're still lethal if total damage is done to a vital part.

Seems to be as lethal as regular bullets.

Done, and hopefully addressed those log errors as well :)

I've been working on it! I've got a lot of mod updates all at once, but this one was getting attention until late last night. Glad you like it as much as I do

Possible 1.1 update? love this mod it's much simpler than most nonlethal weapon mods

Upon some further testing it seems to be happening whenever anything gets damaged by something that isn't a rubber bullet. I was doing testing with damage types and I was getting errors popping up for raiders breaking down walls, explosions, and most console spamming of all, fire. The game pumps out so many errors into the console that even if I have the popup on error mode turned off my game still chugs since it can potentially be having multiple errors every second.

The mod is really good but for me and I absolutely love it for it's strengths, as well as the fact that you don't have to try and get special non-lethal weapon mods to the mix if you just want vanilla weapons. I've been trying to take a look at the error to see if I can find a potential fix but I've never done mods for Rimworld before outside of some minor compatibility fixes.

It's also giving me that issue that Tom is dealing with, except its happening to me when an animal gets slaughtered. The only mods I was running were Colony Manager and Rubber Bullets
