Lighting sets the mood of a base and can help players coordinate the colors of rooms. Wall light adds lights that mount to the wall and work the same as vanilla lights but allow for unique colors. Players can select colors using a color wheel to get their exact color preference.

Wall lights can be deconstructed and turned on and off. This mod also adds a few extra features, such as configurable material costs, the amount of light they produce, indicated illuminated areas, and the optional solar wall light, which can be disabled if desired.

RimWorld is easily among the most complex resource management games, and moving those resources around is a frequent need. Settlers are notoriously slow at transporting items, but with the help of Collect and transport, they can be a little faster. Settlers will now use their inventory while carrying items to increase their total carrying capacity instead of just using their hands.

The transfer of resources will go more smoothly with this mod and the settlers will make fewer trips to complete the movement of objects. Settlers with items in their inventory will unload at frequent intervals or when idle.

The mod adds wall coolers that sit on top of a cooler, eliminating the need to destroy a wall and preserving the aesthetic of the base.

Hospitality allows players to show off their furniture by welcoming guests and providing them with rooms and fun activities, and they can even help with certain tasks. Invitations can be sent via the communications console. Finally, the mod allows players to recruit visitors to expand their colony.

RimWorld isn’t exactly known for its stunning graphics, and the base game’s UI gets the job done but leaves a lot to be desired. RimHUD thoroughly overhauls the user interface of RimWorld and improves the visual clarity of information while adding more data across many tabs.

RimHUD adds visual warnings if a pawn is about to die to prevent players from suddenly realizing that their favorite pawn is dead while farming. It introduces a floating HUD option that reveals the colonists’ interactions with each other in text bubbles.
