Realistic Rooms

Lowers the required room sizes to better match realistic sizes of a house. This is also for those who like smaller packed bases. This mod was sugested by Gwazi Magnum.

Note: For anyone curious it does work with the new Multiplayer Mod

You can now pick up this mod up on Nexus at the link below


-minimal sizes by tiles

SW Spacious.....55...............28
Quite Spacious..70...............45
Very Spacious...130.............75
EX Spacious......350.............175

Let me know in the chat below if you feel these sizes are too small or too big.

- Reduced Beauty Debuff for dirt/Filth

Since most people don't walk into an average room, leave a bit of dirt on the floor and decide that room is now the worst room on the planet, i'm adding my "It's just a little dirt" mod to help offset the unrealistic debuff for having floors.


Update: I changed debris and animal filth back to -15, I don't think i will be changing dirt though for the simple reason the smaller the room the worse the original -15 was to the room. So it just doesn't make sense to change that right now to keep the rooms more balanced.

Note this doesn't affect how clean an area is, just how the colonist feel about the area. Everything outside will also most likely be -1 instead of whatever it was normally, thats mostly just because of how the code works for filth objects.

Thank you to everyone who has subbed, faved and rated. I'm shocked by how fast this one is growing.

You can now find the light version of this mod on my workpage for those who want smaller rooms, but find this mod lowered them too much.

This is saved game compatible.

Guess there's a compatibility issue
• [Realistic Rooms] causes compatibility errors by overwriting BaseFilth in file 4\v1.2\Defs\ThingDefs_Misc\Filth_Various.xml

Great mod, this is how the base game should be... it's totally ridiculous how big rooms need to be in vanilla.

Anyone wondering I did a test run to find out exactly how many tiles equal space. To get EX spacious you need at least 151 tiles. Very Spacious: 54 tiles. Quite Spacious: 33 tiles. SW Spacious: 21 tiles. Average: 9 tiles. Tight: 5 tiles. I couldn't get the space calculation to ever equal what I would see in game so I experimented and figured out the exact tile requirement.

Does this mod affect the bedroom and throne room requirements from Royalty DLC?
