Mashed's Ashlands

A completely remade version of the original MorrowRim mod, made to a much higher standard, and with significantly more experience under my belt. There is a wealth of new content added, and several features from some of my other MorrowRim mods have been incorporated. The mod itself is entirely focused on the ashland biomes, with all content included being tied to them in some way.



The biggest change in this mod, when compared to the original, is the addition of volcanos. Volcanos are a new type of world object that is created on impassable mountain tiles during world generation. Volcanos form the centre of ashland regions, and are the source of ash storms, as well as other volcanic conditions.

Each volcano is randomly assigned a category during world generation, which affects the maximum radius of any volcanic conditions it causes. This category can change over time, meaning your once safe settlement may not be safe forever. There are four types of volcano, each with their own associated biomes, and conditions.




Ash storms of course return, and have received a fairly major rework. Ash resistance is no longer a binary thing, and is now a fully-fledged stat. The higher a pawns ash resistance stat is, they less ash buildup they will receive. For plants the ash resistance stat dictates how much damage they randomly take during an ash storm. Many ashland native pawns and plants no longer have complete ash resistance.




Fertile terrain, has allowed for the formation of rather strange ecosystems. Large insects, odd-looking reptiles, and of course enormous mushroom trees are all common sights in the ashlands. Of course some ashland biomes are far more hospitable than others.




These biomes are home to many strange and wonderful animals for you to tame. However the ashlands are a harsh mistress, and the animals that live here have had to adapt to the conditions. Predators are a common sight, and although some would rather dig around in the ash, they're still willing to hunt for flesh. Of course some of the herbivores are not entirely peaceful themselves.




While regular plants may theoretically flourish in the nutrient rich ground found in the ashlands, they won't fare so well against ash storms. Because of this you'll need to learn how to grow ashland-native plants, of which there are quite a few.








Ashland biomes are not as heavily impacted by pollution, thanks to the fertile volcanic soil. This has allowed native fauna and flora to adapt to pollution, and in some cases even flourish. Polluted soil in these biomes will have its fertility reduced by 50%, and as such plant density is not as heavily reduced.












Q: CE?
A: I don't patch for CE.

Q: Can I add this mid-save?
A: You probably shouldn't.

Q: Can I remove this mid-save?
A: You really shouldn't.

@Aegis J Hyena, disable volcanos in settings + Cherry Picker + Choose Wild Animal Spawns.

Could you make some of the features optional so people can sort of cherrypick what they want? Like I want just the animals, but that mod's depreciated and its stuff incorperated to this one.

I miss the old mod that was a Stand alone for Glass and Ebony are metal ores available. Thank you guys for still having them in here, however, I dont want all the other features.

Still I read and looked over it all. Looks great, I hope people enjoy.

I think I might still try that old mod as its on the workshop despite the depreciated status.
