Smokeleaf Industry Reborn

This mod is compatible with RimWorld versions 1.0, and 1.1.

Smokeleaf Industry Reborn is a mod that adds various new drugs, foods, medicines, building materials and more all based around smokeleaf cultivation and processing. All items added by the mod are based on real world applications of "smokeleaf" and it's byproducts. Medicinal, recreational and industrial uses are all included. Research must be conducted in order to unlock the various items and their uses.
The original Smokeleaf Industry mod was created by steam user larSyn, for which they have announced discontinuation of support. I have unofficially taken over maintaining this mod, and will continue to offer support, bug fixes, and many upgrades to this new mod. Below is a list of all the changes I have made thus far.

I have done a complete overhaul of the addiction system for all smokeleaf products. Pawns now build tolerance to smokeleaf (as a drug) instead of specific methods of consumption, and become dependent on the drug, if they use too much. Some methods increase tolerance faster than others. Pawns will be able to get their fix from anything containing smokeleaf, instead of only cookies or joints, etc. They can even get high from eating smokeleaf butter or raw buds if they are getting desperate.
Dependent pawns who are suffering withdrawal will have a chance of going on a smokeleaf binge or an eating binge (or possibly even a smokeleaf brownie eating binge... dear lord)

Getting high
Depending on the method of consumption, the severity of the initial high will differ. For example, smoking a joint will result in '(euphoric)' which is level 2 for severity. Smoking an entire cannagar will result in '(completely wrecked)' which is level 4 for severity. Consuming repeatedly (by any method) will further increase the severity of the high, to the point that a pawn may be greening out. Severity will dissipate over time, and completely wear off in roughly 1 day for the most extreme highs.
The benefits and negatives of being high have been overhauled as well, to offer what I believe to be a more accurate reflection of how smokeleaf would impact a pawn. Smokeleaf is extremely effective for mild pain, and increased consumption will help more with severe pain. There is no longer negative impact to consciousness or moving speed.

Here is a list of what will happen to your pawn if they get high:
  • Decreased pain
  • Increased joy (chemical and/or gluttonous)
  • Decreased chance of mental break (switches to increased chance if greening out, though)
  • Decreased work speed
  • Decreased learning rate
  • Increased hunger rate
  • Increased tiredness
  • Increased chance of an eating binge at more severe levels
  • Chance of vomiting when 'greening out', as well as other minor mental breaks due to increased likelihood of panicking.

These changes increase in severity depending on how high your pawn gets.

Methods of consumption
Some methods of consumption are more 'socially acceptable' than others. For example, a pawn will be more likely to experiment with a joint than to go straight to the chemfuel hash oil.
Pawns will also have higher thoughts of themselves depending on the method of consumption. Despite getting high, a pawn that needed to resort to eating smokeleaf butter is going to feel crappy about eating butter. A pawn that manages to get their hands on a cannagar is going to feel like royalty.

There are 5 pharmacologic smokeleaf items you'll be able to see in game, and now each of them have their own rather distinct purpose in game.
  • CBD: Slightly less effective alternative to regular medicine.
  • Infused Medicine: Slightly less effective alternative to Glitterworld medicine.
  • Smokeleaf lotion: Reduces pain, aids in movement and manipulation.
  • Smokeleaf pills: Aids in prevention and recovery from illnesses, and reduces pain.
  • Smokeleaf tincture: Reduces pain, and helps pawns get a better night's sleep.

All smokeleaf social drugs are great to help ease pain, reduce mental break threshold, and increase mood.

The research tree has been revamped to make access to smokeleaf items more accessible. Depending on a classic/tribal start, you will start with some basic research already completed. CBD has been lowered from 'Smokeleaf pharmacology' and locked behind 'Industrial smokeleaf processing' instead. This, I feel, better reflects a gradual understanding of the medicinal benefits of smokeleaf.

Recipes and Market Value
Many recipes have been adjusted to be more balanced, both on ingredient requirements and work needed. Some recipes were extremely strong, some needed major help. Now all items from this mod follow RimWorld's standard method for determining market value (ingredient cost + work*0.216). The prices of everything will seem more reasonable when it comes to buying and selling. Rest assured, any efforts your pawns make working with smokeleaf will be profitable.
Some single item recipes have been removed, also a few bulk recipes. The cost of core herbal medicine and industrial medicine have also been slightly tweaked. Did you know that in core RimWorld you are always better off buying medicine than making your own? Making medicine costs more money in materials alone, without even factoring in the work needed! I changed this, which I think will encourage players to make their own medicine while also considering smokeleaf medicine as a good alternative.
All recipe and price changes have been made in the spirit of balance.

Psychology Mod Integration:
I highly recommend using the Psychology mod with Smokeleaf Industry Reborn. There are some very important patches that will be used with it. I've removed lung carcinoma and asthma as possible complications of using smokeleaf, since there are so many methods of ingestion now. But to keep some balance, I replaced these with a heart attack chance. However, with the psychology mod, we can have much more realistic complications from using smokeleaf.
Without psychology mod:
  • Heart attack chance with tolerance.
  • High chance of eating binge, wandering own room, or wandering confused, if pawn is extremely high.
With psychology mod:
  • Develop anxiety chance with tolerance.
  • Eliminate chance of heart attack, and wandering confused.
  • Lower chance of eating binge, wandering own room.
  • Added low chance of become paranoid when extremely high.
  • Added low/moderate chance of becoming apathetic (slacking off) when extremely high.

To-do List:
  • Add integration with chronic illnesses, to be able to treat with pharmacology
  • Suggested mod integrations
  • Bug fixes?
  • Ongoing balancing

Compatability and Load Order:
This mod is compatible with everything that doesn't alter the original smokeleaf joint (or related recipes). This mod is not compatible with the original Smokeleaf Industry mod, or my 'One Drug' mod (both obsoleted by this mod). This mod is meant to be the successor to the original. Any mods that are patched for original Smokeleaf Industry will not be functioning with this mod, since this is technically a new mod. Integrated mods are listed below.

Load mods in this order:
  • Psychology (optional, recommended)
  • Vegetable Garden Project (optional)
  • RimCuisine2 (optional)
  • Smokeleaf Industry Reborn (this mod)

still works with 1.2, but causes monuments to only accept hempcrete for floor materials.

Can you, please, update your mod for the version 1.2?
Thank you in advance!

I can run the 1.1 version of this mod in 1.2 fine, except that most of the time the textiles this mod adds, hemp fiber and devilsleaf, don't appear in material selection lists. Traders refuse to buy or sell them as well. I really hope somebody can step up and keep the mod going.

Has anyone picked this up?

Dear friends. I will no longer be able to keep up with maintaining this mod. I haven't played RimWorld in quite a while, and to be fair, if I was to update this mod for 1.2, I would just be slapping a tag into the About file saying the mod is compatible with 1.2, without testing anything.

If anyone would like to maintain this mod, or release a 1.2 version, please feel free to do so. Just be sure to include the CC License info, as I've done to respect the license from the original creator (user larSyn). The License type is CC-BY-NC-SA-4.0, which basically says you may modify and share derivatives, however, not for commercial gain, and you need to credit the original creator, as well as apply the same License to your own version. Thanks for all your love and support.
