Westerado is designed around vanilla-extension, specifically adding more mid-game weapons, apparel, items and functionality. All done in the already existing western theme in Rimworld.

33+ New western-themed weapons; ranging from six shooters to double-barreled shotguns
18+ New sets of apparel; don new hats, ponchos, and coats as you struggle to survive on the frontier
11+ New hairstyles; look the part of a legendary frontiersman
10+ New buildings; from small poker tables to palisades
8+ New animals; get mauled by bison, harassed by coyotes, and poisoned by gila monsters
2 New factions; Outlaws now roam the rimworlds looking for easy scores. The First Nation tribes have been in the rimworlds for a long time, and are going head to head with the recent arrivals of the outlanders.
New system for horned animals; all horned/antlered/tusked animals now drop their respective regalia, can be used in crafting or sold for profit
New brewing and distilling system; brew Ratherwoman's Rye Whisky and Robbaz' Moonshine
New art tale system for weapons added in this mod, featuring more western-themed descriptions where applicable
New traits, meals, plants, diseases (dysentery!), and sources of joy to go along with your new found passion for the wild west lifestyle
New Western themed scenario, embrace the frontier!
Changed Technology Tree to have a more tiered weapon progression
Small Bug fixes for the Vanilla game, ranging from fixed text errors to strange interactions
More secret stuff!

We're also planning on releasing future content updates!

Add-ons & Recommended Mods
We suggest using all the add-ons, but none of them are required.

Mod loading order
Westerado does well at the bottom-end of the mod load order. Westerado Wilderness should be loaded after Westerado (Core), if you're using Snowy Trees by Nandonalt & Tejko put that before Westerado (Core). Something like:

Should be compatible with most things. Special care was taken to be compatible with Vegetable Garden by dismarzero.

Things that could cause problems:
  • Complete conversion mods
  • Mods that make alteration to Rimworld's tale system
  • Mods that make radical changes to research

Have you found a compatibility issue? Please inform us in the comments and we'll try to patch it when we can! Make sure to include a list of mods you've used and any potential error messages.

Questions and Answers
  • Q: Does this remove technology that does not fit the western-theme? A: No. This is a vanilla-extension mod. This builds onto the vanilla experience, it doesn't remove anything. If you're looking to mod your game to only have western themed things check out Rimworld Westernization Project by JackeryFox and Tamias.

@Dan K. Memes
All the values were tests, so we appreciate the feedback.

I just did a little digging in the .xml files, and it looks like the breechblock rifle has a range of 20.9, which is less than pretty much every rifle class weapon in the game, and even worse than some of the pistols. Maybe tweak that in the next update?
Dan K. Memes Feb 17 @ 12:25pm 
I don't know if this is because of Westerado Gunslinger, or if it's just base game, but some of the weapon ranges just seem off to me. I'm running Combat Extended with the Gunslinger patch, and I can't help but notice the breechloading rifle has about the same range as the sawed-off lever actions shotgun, and a few other things like that. Did I bork something, or is that just how the mod is?

It shouldn't, but always make backups of your saves.

Does this break saves?
🦉 owl  [author] Feb 11 @ 11:11am 
Don't think I can create a patch for that, unfortunately.

Figured out the issue I was having; for some reason, it wasn't playing nice with Export Agency. which lets you export custom drug/clothing assignments so you can use them across games. Turning off export agency seems to have solved my problems.

@Benjaji Not that I am aware.
Benjaji Feb 8 @ 10:04am 
is there any mod that limit the technology for 1.0 ?

@owl I'll do some more troubleshooting on my end and see if I can't narrow it down in a test colony, because I'm positively flummoxed, myself.

Thanks for the timely response, however! I'll let you know if I find anything out~
