Another fan-service mod based on yet another cult-favorite movie/novel: Starship Troopers!

This mod, introduce the main antagonist: the Arachnid, or affectionately known as "Bugs" by the soldiers in the film, into the RimWorld. Now you can build an outpost on this forsaken planet and fight off these vile creatures, just like in the movies!


As the United Citizen Federation expanded its territory across the Galaxy, it came into contact with the Arachnid Species covering an area of it. The Federation initially considered the Arachnids to be a less advanced civilization. However, to avoid conflict, the region of space the Arachnids had colonized was Quarantined to prevent any humans settling within it. Despite this unofficial colonies were created, on Arachnid planets often ending in the Arachnid attacks of these poorly defended colonies leading to massacres.

After 5 consecutive Bug Wars against the Arachnids, the United Citizen Federation remains unable to prevent Arachnids' spread in some parts of the known galaxy. While they were wiped out within the Glitterworlds' systems, the "Bugs" had since expanded their territory into the Rim Worlds, where military operations against them is limited. However this became a huge threat to the new colonies that are currently being built on the Rim Worlds. They may only have just arrived in the Rim Worlds, but they will never stop until they conquer every single planet in the Rim Worlds.


– 18 different arachnid invasions types that escalates over 3 years (so it wont be game ending before you are ready for them)
– 8 different bugs drawn from the Starship Troopers movie franchise (with 1 from a SST game)

TREAT ME TO A MEAL: https://ko-fi.com/walkingproblem

Simple SideArms - to ensure the mod do not cause TankerBugs and Plasma Bugs to stop using / dropped their range weapon totally upon getting hit/melee - please go to Mod Settings, and choose LoadOutOnly preset.



A hardcore addon to make bugs attacks more frequent.

In this addition, the Arachnids will be more active in attacking your colony

– Recommended for those players who are looking for a more “Starship Trooper-ish” experience.
– Recommended for those players who are finding the original Arachnid mod not challenging enough.
– Recommended for those players who are really proud of their colony’s defense and fortifications.
– Not recommended for noobs.
– Not recommended if you want a more balanced game that blends in well with other mods.
