RimCities - Quest Update

RimCities is an attempt to create an interesting and unique end-game challenge for RimWorld players. This mod adds randomly generated cities to the world map, which are similar to other settlements but are far more difficult to attack. Pirate-controlled cities provide even more of a challenge by occasionally bombarding you with mortar shells.

It is possible to visit and explore friendly cities with in-person trading and custom quest objectives. Rival factions will attack one another's cities from time to time, giving you opportunities to choose sides and establish military alliances.

You may also come across abandoned cities, which provide great scavenging opportunities for you and other nearby raiding parties.

RimCities is compatible with existing save files and works with Combat Extended, Real Ruins, Zombieland, Faction Control, RimQuest, Quest Tab, Medieval Times, and many other mods. If you're encountering issues, try disabling other mods and/or tweaking the load order.

I wish we could trade with cities :(
WinterWolf Oct 12 @ 9:19am 
on testing, doesn't look like this is compatible with medieval restricted playthroughs with mods such as LOTR and Rimhammer, regardless of load order. Later tech still spawns in the cities, unfortunately.

@Spitz McLoogy

"Abandoned" cities aren't actually abandoned per say, they're in a state of disrepair, and filled with squatters, raiders, pirates, or the like. As opposed to whatever faction naturally occupies the tileset.

is this compatable with faction interaction
Spitz McLoogy Oct 11 @ 4:51pm 
Whats the difference with a ghost city? Like what's the difference between that scenario and a normal abandoned city start?

Hello, author Cabbage.

You have my sincerest gratitude for your patch on the legends, I consider Rimcities essential to my gameplay and will immediately start another playthrough with it enabled again.

When I install this mod the world incident in debug tab is stop working. But after I uninstall this mod it back to work again.
Holgast Oct 8 @ 12:36am 
@One Side the Last Visited mod released an update that should prevent it conflicting with this one.

My Abandoned City appears to be limited in size. I noticed that you patch it at one point so it wouldn't be limited, but when I change the map size and re-start, it continues to be the same size.
