This mod is CE compatible.

1.0.1 (19/04/2021): Fixed the extra-super-duper high gold cost. Sorry.
1.0.0 (12/04/2021): Initial release

One of the most commonly requested features for Vanilla Factions Expanded - Settlers was tech-locking their weapons. Sadly, vanilla game does not differentiate between ‘western-style’ weapons like revolvers and M14 assault rifles - for the game, it’s all industrial weapons. If we were to white list only ‘western-style’ weapons, it wouldn’t offer enough variety - you’d constantly see raiders with revolvers, bolt action rifles and pump shotguns. That’s it. Boring isn’t it?

Don’t worry fam, we got you. Hold our beer while we deliver a decent-sized weapon mod featuring vast amount of new western-style weapons with a new High roller mechanic, giving these guns a chance (10%) to deal double damage. This mod also includes a large number of conditional patches adding even more weapons - if you’re running Vanilla Weapons Expanded - Laser, you can expect some laser frontier weapons, with Heavy Weapons you can hold a gatling gun, with Coilguns you can have proper coilgun revolver and repeater, and with quickdraw you can wield a famous derringer!

Vanilla Weapons Expanded is part of a series of mods expanding on everyday life on the Rimworld. When paired together with a brand new Vanilla Apparel Expanded and Vanilla Armours Expanded, you can bring something to your game that will keep you interested in it for days.

Could you add a Charge Repeater which needs the base Vanilla weapons expanded to be loaded to have it. A Charge Revolver would be fun to.

is there a guide for how to make guns from other western themed mods compatible with the high roller mechanic?

i find it a little weird that the high tech versions dont require the frontier weapons research as a prerequisite

You can edit the xml on your local copy to adjust <commonality>!

fair enough i guess
Oskar Potocki  [author] Oct 22, 2021 @ 4:16pm 
I never said these weapons are rare!
AKEKHQ Oct 22, 2021 @ 2:51pm 
Is there a way to decrese the amount of those weapons spwaning? I get a stockpile full of those"rare" weapons after every settler raid.
Oskar Potocki  [author] Oct 22, 2021 @ 6:17am 
When, though I can't say.
