Medieval Times

Version 1.0.2059 -- Please (Rate Up) if you like this mod --
Medieval Times operates as a game expansion, filling out early game / Tribal era content as Medieval era items, weapons, armour and buildings. This mod also adds 2 new types of Medieval factions to the game. In addition to Medieval content, some bonus items / additions were added for fun & to flesh out other additions made by "Medieval Times".

----- Remember to enable the mod under mods in-game for it to work --------

------- New mod means new save, or at least backup your old one ---------

----======== Medieval Times =========----

New maps created will possess at least 3 new settlements; 2 medieval societies and 1 medieval warband. societies are similar to outlander towns, warbands are similar to raiders in terms of functionality.

Mod is focused primarily on medieval era items, buildings and equipment, some other additions where added for context/fun such as the "Charge-10 MG" made famous by Robo-Wilis.

Mod was heavily inspired by the works of; "IshOfTheWoods", "Shinzy" and various other modders.

This mod started as a personal mod combining "Ish's Medieval" and Shinzy's "Norbals", however it's current incantation does not use any of the assets or coding from either, all the coding should be using core files as a base for it's coding. if you notice anything creeped in let me know.


Dev Notes: ------------------------------------------------------

- How to enable a mod? - When in game at the main menu, go to the [mods] section and ensure that Medieval Times is green checked (enabled)

- Most mods, if you remove them outright after saving with the mod active, will leave your save-game "broken". Because of this, it is always recommended to do a new save when trying out mods or adjusting your mod lineup.

- In order for the factions to appear in-game you need to start a new save as the factions are created at the map-generation stage.

- Medieval Times does not remove any core content such as guns or factions from the game, it merely expands upon it.

- Save-buster Updates are generally reserved for Alpha Updates, if one occurs a Notice will be placed beforehand.

- Help, You're save buster broke my save!
~> Legacy versions of the mod are available at the nexus, simply download and install the old version and you can still play the last alpha of this mod. Keep in mind though, legacy versions will be missing many of the cool new features and items newer versions have.

---------------- Nexus Link: http://www.nexusmods.com/rimworld/mods/124/? ------------------------

- If you want to remove embrasures from the mod, you can do so via the: New Game ~> Scenario Editor ~> Add Part ~> Disallow Building. Simply select embrasures. (Note: The embrasures in this mod are not your typical embrasures as they can eventually be scaled, meaning enemies will fire at you from the other side)

-Winter Cloaks and cloaked items meant to act as medieval style replacement for parka's, Yes they look cool, but their primarily meant as winter wear so warbands dont freeze to death while raiding your ice-castle. As such wearing Winter Cloaks in hot enviroments will always lead to heat stroke.


-- On the Topic of Overhaul / Removing guns / factions / Creating alternative versions / Compatability Patches / Piecemealed Items -------

I'm considering an overhaul. However, you have to realize that doing that means cutting a whole swath of content from the game, if your going to do that you need to replace it with something else.

While this mod does have alot, i dont think it has enough(at least not yet) to justify a full overhaul. If i do one eventually, it will be after I've made more content for this mod, enough to justify an overhaul and it would have to be a seperate mod/download.

Maintaining two mods would require more time and mean that i'd have less time to update / finish this one. With the game in early-access their is still alot of work to be done in terms of future updates. Every update means that every mod i have out needs to be individually updated for the new alpha. (which w/ tynan can occur monthly in some cases)

so my thought process is make one mod, make it good, keep it up to date, than once the game is stable / "finished" and once my mod is stable / "finished" i can look at all the things like peicemealed items, compatability patches, extra mods, overhaul versions, ect.

this mod itself isnt finished or polished or fully balenced, It has a long way to go on getting it right and that should be done before I consider other projects.

alotta mods and projects get started great, but than never get finished, or they never make it to the end line in terms of early-access mods. I figure if i stay commited to the cause of one, the chances of making the end-line are simply better.

Once this mod is "done" first re-iteration will probably be the Overhaul, after which id consider other iterations and compatability patches.

In summary, Its a whole lotta work, maybe in the future, but definitly not right now.


Mod Conflicts: -------------------

Mod should play nice with other mods

If their are any big/important mods that this is incompatible with (as in non-functioning) let me know and i can prolly make a compatibility patch for em at a later date (after this mod is finished (Combat realism is noted and on the list))

Link to Combat Extended and MT compatability patch by the excellent Tamias:


Licensing Stuff: -------------------

Any work I do is free of charge, if anyone try's to distribute/sell you this mod at a location other than here or the nexus, it's not me and is probably a scam.

If you see anyone asking for money on my behalf or claiming to be me and asking for money/items, be it patreon or otherwise, it's not me and probably a scam.

This work should not be distributed or reproduced without my express written consent. please do not include my work in modpacks or upload to other locations without first contacting me and receiving my written consent.

Feel free to use this mod in your Let's Play, if you do, feel free to post a link in the Let's Play Discussion.

So I want to try to make a ice castle on the ice sheet (won't try sea ice even with electricity that's suicide) is there anyway to make a sustainable food source up there without electricity I want to do a hard medieval playthrough with no post medieval tech... I guess I could cheese it with tilled soil and a crap ton of campfires and cut the roof out but that's not very feasible.... Is there an alternate way?

I'm seriously thinking a medieval overhaul for rimworld would be perfect from ground up the story and tech would end in the medieval world. There is definite potential for this game to be successful this way. I believe through some epic editing you could totally rewrite this game to be what it could be in this fashion. Its a huge time sink tho, as you know! (I've made some pretty successful overhaul mods on steamworkshop, and this idea has definitely caught my attention for rimworld!)

I can't find a comms console anymore, does this remove it?

@Vindar i was considering downloading your mod until i read what you had to say about it being an overhaul. I cannot agree more. Too many great projects get started by either others or ourselves and never get finished. stay focused: I cannot wait to play with this mod.

Anyone else seemingly getting only 1 jerked meat from the bulk recipe at the smokehouse? Wondering if it has something to do with Vegetable Garden?

your mod aint working bro. I keep getting errors that cause the game to un-download all my mods for some reason. Everytime it says stuff about gloves and combat, i would really like for this mod to work, ive been trying to make it work for about 3 hours, even deleted most of my mods and it still wont work...

I'm curious, why is it that storage pots are a food only storage? It seems to me like you would be able to put any random thing in a clay jug, not simply food.

Arming sword infused with nanites, turn into a twohander. Meaning it no longer can be used with a shield.
