Allows you to host, entertain and recruit visitors.

Excellent video explanation on YouTube.

Have you been wondering what the point of visiting factions is? Look no further, this mod is the answer.

- Convince visitors to join your faction!
- Increase faction relationships!
- Treat visitors well by providing them with rooms, guest beds and joy activities!
- Sell them junk by placing it in their shopping area! (shelves and containers work too)
- Happy guests will help out with your chores!
- Guests can be invited via the Comms Console!
- There is a tab that lists all present guests!
- You can set up dispensers as vending machines!

Can be added mid-game.

Instructions and more information
Can be found HERE.

Load order
Hospitality works best when loaded as late as possible. You can safely put it at the end of the list.

Known incompatible mods
- Any mod that gives guests animals (or slaves),
- Giddy Up (works fine, but guests won't use mounts)
- Colony Manager (you will need to start a new game, or your work priorities will be jumbled - you can use Fluffy's Work Tab to prevent/fix this)
- Xenn faction mod (their guest groups won't spawn)
- Custom storytellers that are not fully / correctly implemented (guest tab won't show. Always load Hospitality after storytellers)
- Outfitted mod (guests won't buy things)
- Area Inclusion Exclusion (pawns won't spawn)
- Denser Beds (bunkbeds break when turned to guest beds)
- Ignorance Is Bliss (factions out of your tech range won't visit)
- Keep Bed Ownership (guest beds can't be destroyed)
- Simple Sidearms (will not work correctly if the "No friendly inventory spill" option is on)
- Explorite Core (guests won't be able to claim beds)
- Simple Food Selection (constant no food alert, lag)
- Camping Tent (stats are lost when converting to guest bed)
- Android Tiers Reforged (dressers and end tables stop working for regular beds)
- Food restrictions (not a mod, but guests use the default restrictions. Changing them can cause them to never eat)
- Better Loading (guest beds disappear / can't be placed)

Reporting bugs
Should you encounter any issues, first make sure the mod has updated correctly. You do this by unsubscribing and resubscribing whatever mod you think causes the issue. Then restart Steam. If this doesn't help, clear out your downloaded mods folder and restart Seam.

If the issue persists, press CTRL-F12 (right after the problem occurs!) to upload your log and paste the link and a description of what went wrong HERE[github.com] or in the discussions section. If possible, provide a screenshot of the error, the link to your log and an explanation of what happened. This will speed up fixing the problem tremendously.

In 90% of all cases, the problem is a conflicting mod, failed update or a corrupted installation on your side. First try to resubscribe this mod (and restart Steam), then try a different load order. The Mod Manager mod and Mod Sorter[bitbucket.org] can help find obvious issues.

If you just complain and don't include an error log, I'm not gonna do anything about it.

Requesting features
You can request features HERE[github.com]. I will generally not do anything with requests written in the comments below. However, I don't usually do requests anyway.

It's crashing too, so you might want to get rid of that until it's fixed from their end.
Which it could be, and you're running an outdated version. All possible.

Let me correct that: Hospitality Patch is from Rim Quest.
Orion  [author] May 16 @ 1:36pm 
You have fix your other issues first. OuterRimCore fails to load which can mess up whatever comes after.
Achievements Expanded fails loading too. Also Assignment Copy.

Any of these can cause collateral damage down the line. Start from the top. The first could be causing the rest.

Clear out your workshop folder for RimWorld and restart Steam so it downloads all mods again. (maybe try this first)

If the issues persist, remove mods until you don't have exceptions in your log anymore. Unless the first exception you're getting is from Hospitality, I can't do anything for you. I saw one from HospitalityPatch, but I don't know where that's from. Could be the culprit too.

Oh, ps. it happens with every guest reading books, the Marianus error is just the most recent I have an example of.
Sugarstar May 16 @ 1:16pm 
I get a random error message every single time one of my guests tries to read a book the colony owns? They're unmodded books from just basic 1.5 and they're in the area the guests can reach.

Here's the error:

Marianus failed to get a relax job. joyGiverDef=Reading of Core
Object reference not set to an instance of an object (etc.)

So search Marianus (the guest) and you'll see it. There's another error specific to hospitality so if you search Hospitality you'll see it, too.

Gotcha, thanks for the explanation.

@mountain: It's based on some randomness. Also, if they dislike people in the colony, you have to make up for it with more friends, which could indeed be more than you have people.

Guest tab won’t open for me 🤷🏻‍♂️ I opened a thread. Could you look into it please? Thanks!

What determines how many friends you need to recruit? I have some guests that require more friends to recruit than I even have in my colony.
