[FSF] Complex Jobs (Legacy Version)

Changes to the work tab can cause save breaking issues for some people. If you are one of these people you will likely require a new game if you want to add this mod. This legacy version will only be updated on major updates for Rimworld that tend to break saves/mods (eg 1.0, 1.1, 1.3).


The original work priorities leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to prioritising jobs. This mod breaks down existing jobs into smaller jobs allowing you to make things run smoother and more efficiently. Below is a list of the new jobs you can assign people to.

- Care for the sick, bring them food, cheer them up, and perform assigned duties. Nurses will care for colonists, prisoners and animals.

- Perform surgeries on colonists, prisoners and animals.

- Rearm turrets.

- Refuel buildings/objects that run off fuel sources like wood or chemfuel.

- Tame wild animals and train domesticated animals.

- Do bills at the Butcher Table.

- Turn hops into wort, fill and empty fermenting barrels.

- Repair breakdowns and damaged objects/structures.

- Remove roofs, deconstruct buildings/objects, uninstall things and remove floors.

- Harvest plants and crops.

- Operate Deep Drills.

- Do bills at the Drug Lab.

- Do bills at the Fabrication Bench.

- Do bills at the Smithy.

- Do bills at the Refinery

- Operate smelters to melt down slag or weapons.

Cut Stone
- Create blocks of stone from rock chunks.

- Load transport pods and load/unload caravans.

- Strip bodies, do bills at the crematorium and burn apparel/drugs/weapons at campfires.

- Deliver resources to construction projects.

- Work at the Ground Penetrating Scanner and Long Range Mineral Scanner.

This mod should be loaded last in your load order. It should be compatible with other mods providing they don’t reconfigure jobs like this one does. It should work fine with Fluffy's Work Tab though.

Can you do X?

I can’t make any sort of options menu or mod settings so please don’t ask. My knowledge for Rimworld modding is limited to editing xml files. I have a little experience in scripting stuff but at this time I have no desire to try to learn how to mess around with code to get it to do things.

I don't intend to upload this mod in smaller pieces. I don't really intend to change how the job setup is done but I am open to suggestions on improving it.

I don't intend to do any major mod support. There's thousands of mods and I have no intention or desire to add support for all of them. However I have added patches for a number of mods.

@FrozenSnowFox I thought I'd mention it still.

That's incredibly weird. I'm afraid an issue like that would have to be solved on their end. My mod is entirely xml based and it simply adds new work types and shifts tasks around. I'm not sure how or why a race mod would mess with work type priorities.

The Arachne (continued) mod seems to break this mod. Everything gets forced into a 1 priority and you're unable to change. Removing the Arachne mod will solve the problem.

Neat ^^

The LoadFolders.xml now uses / instead of \ so it works for Linux.

Patch notes?

So after reloading the colony, the issue haven't occured again. Maybe it was the reload or the language switch for picture taking. Thank you for the fast reply :)
