This is heavily WIP. Expect changes, fixes and more down the line!

”I'm Sorry Dave, I'm Afraid I Can't Do That!"

“Gestalt Engine” is a standalone and improved version of the one found in “Reinforced Mechanoids 2”. It allows the player to control mechanoids without the need for a mechanitor. On top this version also adds a new mechanoid, the Matriarch, which can gestate new mechanoids.

Every aspect of it was made to fit into Rimworld perfectly. From the artstyle, do the way it works. For people who disagree with my balancing, the mod includes extensive mod options to tweak it to your liking!

There are no patches needed as of now.

Some often asked questions, answered already.

Q: Can I used this and Reinforced Mechanoids 2?
A: Yes, you should. Please load this after it.

Q: Is this mod save game compatible?
A: Yeah! You can’t remove it after you add it though!

Q: Is this mod compatible with Combat Extended?
A: Most likely yes! I think?

The people without this mod could not have been made:

Taranchuk: Responsible for the code that makes this beauty work.

Rimworld is owned by Tynan Sylvester.
Based on the books by Richard K. Morgan, check them out, they are great!

The mod is very cool, I really liked it. However, there are many unpleasant moments: The computer does not turn, which limits you in the construction of the base and other buildings that expand the pool control mechanics work, but only with one vanilla option.
There is also a quibble that when declaring that people are not needed, there is no start without people only for over the PC, as well as he is not able to work alone without pawns, the game simply ends.

I wish it worked with Alpha Mechs so we could link the nodes to it to increase bandwidth.

So I'm curious. Does this work pretty good?

would it be possible to make it so that the gestalt engine counted as a mechanator when it comes to researches?

@soulless Jelu, you sort of can if you add them to a caravan thats in the progress of forming by selecting the mechanoid then clicking add to caravan. (unless its a mod i got installed i really have no idea at this point whats vanilla or not)

Why you make that Gestalt controlled mechs cannot leave the map ?
Can you make an option toggle ?

Is there any news on the band node not being able to be tuned? It's pretty frustrating since not even removing this mod fixes it.
