This mod adds a new biome: cave. This will allow you to explore and settle into the deep tunnels of this Rimworld.

BUG: Performance issue during "turning off" of "Glowing stone grass" during changing of state

I’d assume ye did caveroof as a building and not a roof to prevent caveins. In that scenario, wouldn’t an intangible ‘support’ spawning sporadically make more sense?

i had it mess with general room stats, and it also breaks the "vampires" mod since its not considered "roofed", i could bet it had weird weather effects and also not being able to build normal roof there, but that was still back in a16 so it might not be there anymore

@5katz and @Neri/Kevak: what bugs with other mods please?
I may remove it entirely for A18. It is mostly to show that you are in a cave and not just a canyon.

In addition, the roof collapsing is not easily modifiable as it is a vanilla function.

Honestly yah, Why the hell is the cave 'roof' not a roof? It would be easier to just give it a check to not collapse than it is to make a whole snowflake code structure. Would cause fewer bugs in other mods as well. Been staring at the code.

why is the "cave **roof**" not considered a ROOF, but a building?

@ttamttam: please send it to me so I can correct the shadows. I will try to put the rest in a patch for Realistic darkness.
Thank you! :-)

Hey I just made a quick edit to the weathers def to make this work with the realistic darkness mod (I also removed shadows because... shadows?). Would you rather I send you the weathers def or upload it as a patch on the workshop?

Well the problem I have with it is that there is no animation, I didn't realize there was rain until a battery exploded.

@ttamttam and @Jack Reaver: you should imagine that cave's ceiling is very high (up to several hundred meters) so surface weather can have impact underneath. There are also big cave wells which allow snow to get in with powerful winds (wind turbines are more productive in this biome).
"Overhead mountain" means you are in a tunnel inside a mountain. In the caves, the ceiling can be very far from your head. You must thus cover your building with a roof as usual.

That's how I designed this biome. I think that covering the whole map with overhead mountain would also create lot of "roof collapsing" bugs. ;-)

@Squidward Tortellini: it would be of course interresting but I did not take time for this. Too much things to work on! :-D

There's still "rain".
