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.

Very nice mod, really makes rimworld very interesting. I only see a problem: All the stuff in the map is included in your wealth, even if you do not own or have claimed it, or even if you do not know that it exists (because you use fog of war for example). So suddenly, right att the beginning of the game, you have like 500000 wealth and get insanely gigantic raids that are impossible to beat. Am i doing something wrong? Can this be changed somehow so that all that stuff is not included in your wealth? I really love this mod but this issue makes it literally unplayable for me, so i suspect i am doing something wrong.Thank you!

@seto you don't have to start in a city. You mainly visit them.

Is there a way to play this without starting in a city, it feels too clustered from the screenshots

Very ambitious mod and I like how much there is in terms of content, would love to hear about future projects and much more. Also curious on how you guys had come to make this mod, if it was a collaboration or an endeavor by a passionate programer!

I love this mod. It's one of my favorites. I did run into an issue though, one that I am not even sure if it's fixable. I got a quest to sabotage a city, went in and deconstructed every turret but the quest didn't complete. When I leave it tells me that the quest is cancelled.I tried following the power lines and saw a mysterious one in the middle of a mountain. Turns out there was a hidden turret in an alcove, completely inaccessible without mining into the mountain. Just something to be aware of.

I helped a faction take over a city and we became allies. but as i was still in the city their goodwill kept going down. why is that? because my pawns where eating their food ? taking their stuff?
aquaricorn Sep 12 @ 11:25am 
I think it's this mod; correct me if wrong. I have two events in an ally city – a prison plot and an under siege event – and I sent some peons there to help with the under siege event. However when they arrive they don't have the option to do that; when they enter the city it triggers the prison plot.

@Fighter is tired
Chances are there is an assassination or city sabotage request that takes place in that city, ive had this happen to me and i couldn't get my colonists out until the request expired. This is most likely a bug. So you might have to wait for whatever quest taking place there expires, or you complete it.
