7 Things Everyone Does In RimWorld
If you make the rules, you can’t break them.
Rimworld is the best kind of colony model because it lets you do almost anything. Dealing in arms? Check. Animal husbandry? Got your back. Crimes of war? You better believe it. As a general rule, you can probably do anything in Rimworld that you wouldn’t do in real life. This sandbox method is a great starting point for a huge number of stories.
We all have a story about how our first colony fell apart or a funny story about something our colonists did that was questionable but funny. The road to a successful colony has been traveled many times, so everyone can find something they can connect to in Rimworld.

Practice ‘Involuntary Organ Donation’
People in the Rimworld community have given it a few funny nicknames. Organ Harvesting Simulator is a famous game, and the fact that you can do invasive medical procedures in it makes it stand out. Even though it seems sad, the term is actually pretty good. When you catch an attacking (or visiting) pawn, you put them in a special room for prisoners.
People who play morally good colonies will probably let these prisoners go or hire them, but there is a more profitable choice. You have the power to force these prisoners to give you their organs, which you can then sell to any exotic goods seller for a big profit. Even though it might not be the right thing to do, every Rimworld player does it at least once.
Build Increasingly Elaborate Defenses
As the quadrums go by, your AI writer will send your colony raids that get harder and harder. Unless you use Randy Random, who just does whatever he wants. No matter what, there comes a time when every player starts to carefully plan out the best way to defend. Your favorite colonist might have been hit by a stray bullet, or your poor pet boomalope might have gotten stuck on the wrong side of a sandbag.
No matter what, Rimworld sieges can be a pretty fun tower defense game if you build the right defenses. Most players choose to make long, twisting halls with traps on the floor, but you can be as creative as you want.
Push Colonists To Their Breaking Points
The Rim is a harsh place to live. A colonist’s fear of eating food without a table is often the only thing standing between him or her and a complete mental breakdown. This doesn’t even take into account all the different things about a colonist’s mindset that affect what they want and what they hate. Managing moods feels like going along a balancing beam.
Every Rimworld player has had to deal with big breakdowns because of this. The effects will be different, but one of the worst things that could happen is for a colonist to go crazy and get killed by an overzealous warden.
Not Having Food For The Winter
The seasons and the temperature have a big effect on how your crops grow. Crops will die if they are exposed to temperatures that are too high or too low. That’s why it’s a good idea to stock up on food before it gets cold. Since random events and raids happen all the time, it’s easy to fall behind on the food limit. For example, a number of cold snaps that come at the wrong time can wipe out your crop and leave you with no food to store.
This makes Drive Mad game a mad dash to get food, and when you’re hungry, you’ll do anything to get it. Every player can remember a time when their group ran out of food in the winter and it was a battle to stay alive.
Download A Ton Of Mods
Rimworld can get boring after a couple hundred hours of playing. You can only fight with your erratic colonists so many times before it stops being fun. The Steam Workshop is a great place for people who want to change the game. There are a lot of mods, and they change almost everything about the game. Some of the things you can get are custom weapons, new furniture, and more groups.
The fact that people are always uploading to the hacking community shows how much people like to play with mods. Every Rimworld player who is serious about the game will eventually fall down the rabbit hole of hacking.
Start A Drug Farm
Organ tricks aren’t the only way to make money in Rimworld. Growing your own drug crops is also a more peaceful choice. There are many different kinds of these drugs, like the hallucinogenic Psychite tea or the adrenaline-boosting Go-juice. Groups are happy to trade coins for drugs, and since the whole thing is easy, it’s a good way for many players to make money.
A good way to get through the hard life on the Rim is to be like Walter White from the show Breaking Bad. Just watch out for which of your residents gets to eat the food you’ve grown.
Become An Interior Designer
Colonists are changeable people, and many of them have a long list of wants when it comes to where they live. It needs to be the right temperature, clean, nice-looking, and big, among other things. Every Rimworld player needs to find their inner interior designer so that they don’t stress out the whole village for no reason. A four-by-four tile box is no longer enough to keep residents happy.
You should make sure there is air conditioning, statues, rugs, and a wide range of fun things to do. After crashing on a planet, you might think that usefulness is more important than style, but colonists have high hopes for how their homes look.
