Mod «Desire Paths» for Rimworld (v1.1 - 1.4)

Desire Paths

Creates packed dirt paths when colonists frequently take the same path.


Packed dirt has a higher move speed than most other 'natural' terrains, but it does track a lot of dirt around and has no fertility. If your colonists frequently walk through your farms, they will eventually trample the fields.

Packed dirt paths will form when colonists frequently take the same path over grass, soil, dirt and other natural terrain. The packed dirt paths will eventually degrade back into the original terrain if not walked on. In the real world, such paths are called desire paths[], Elephant paths, pirate paths, or just simply shortcuts.


If you find that your colonists keep walking through your fields, I recommend using this together with
"Path Avoid", so that you can better steer where your colonists may and may not walk.

For problematic trade caravans, you may want to use "KV's Trading Spot".

That said, if such desire paths form where you don't want them, it's really a sign that you need to change your base design!

The mod requires:  Harmony.
