Defensive Positions

Allows your colonists to remember their position during base defense. You can send off your colonists to their positions with a single click. Also provides keys to quickly create and select groups of colonists for easier control in battle.

Contains Basic and Advanced mode- Advanced allows to save up to 4 defensive positions per colonist. Great for multiple base entrances and fall-back lines of defense.

Can be safely added to existing games.

Notice: The HugsLib library mod must also be installed. Make sure both are enabled in the Mods menu and HugsLib is loaded first.

The in-game description contains a brief guide. To get more info, discuss features or provide feedback, please visit the official forum thread:

Hope you enjoy.

The B19 version is still available, and can be found here: Defensive Positions (B19)

What does it mean by 'squads?'

I'll look into that. Perhaps a mod setting would help.

Any way to have the defensive position command be queued? Shift-click should do it but that resets the position. It'd be nice to queue defensive position after my mod's Gear Up And Go command

Thanks Hugs! :cozyjunimogreen:

Yep, it works just like a strategy game. Hold Ctrl and press a number key to assign, press just the number key to select, press again to focus. By default, you have to use the keypad numeric keys, but you can reassign them if you like.

Does the Squads function like by Pressing SHIFT or CTRL & any number to create them?

And pressing the same number to select yours Squads seperated from Ranged and Melee?

Just like in RTS Games and Real-time Tactical Games where you can easily control a group of people in Squads by moving them and attacking a single target?

That sounds useful, but I'm pretty sure there are already mods to do that. See @nomad's comment.

@tomibgt Maybe the "Gear up and go" mod would help you?

Something that would be lovely in addition to this, would be a command for pawns to suit up and down. This would mean that I could build a locker room by the base exists, where the heavy armor would be stored. Click one button and the pawns would run there, pickup and don their armor. Another button, and they would switch back to something lighter and more comfortable.
