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)

My other mods: HugsLib · Allow Tool · Map Reroll · Remote Tech

What does it mean by 'squads?'

I'd totally use this if it had an option to automatically draft and send colonists to their defensive position when enemies are detected on the map. Not manhunting animals of course, but a raid. The only problem would be drop pod raids but with Preemptive Strike, we can predict and prepare for those.

Can we have this updated for MP please? It's a staple feature imo

Any chance you're going to be updating the multiplayer API to the official one? This mod is definitely a critical QoL and I would love to not get the warning every time I start the game.

Is this mod safe to remove from a game in progress?

Will this save their position if they are on a mounted gun?

I hope to see this mod come to the new API

maybe a thought?
