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)
- 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)
- 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 Steam.

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.

Thank you

I'll have to do more research. Maybe I can get rid of it.
Unfortunately, I don't have time for that in the foreseeable months.
Orion  [author] Jul 16 @ 10:30pm 
I've considered it, yeah. If there's a straightforward alternative, I might switch.
Mur Derer Jul 16 @ 11:39am 
Can't you even consider it? It's like one of the very few mods still using it
Orion  [author] Jul 16 @ 11:28am 
Not my job to turn people on.
Mur Derer Jul 16 @ 3:40am 
I wish hugslib wouldn't be a dependency. Big turn off

Thank you, I actually found the XML snippet I needed from VE Nutrient Paste :D
Orion  [author] Jul 15 @ 10:27pm 
Hm. If I remember right, Hospitality hooks into them via patches. So check the hospitality patches to see what it's looking for.
Cruel Moose Jul 15 @ 3:57pm 
Quick question. I've made a nutrient paste dispenser thats smaller than the regular one, but isn't recognized as such for hospitality. How would I patch it so Hospitality recognizes it as a nutrient paste dispenser as I would like it to have compatibility.
Orion  [author] Jul 15 @ 5:35am 
Hmm. If they're hostile they won't visit. Also, if they show up you can just send them away.
