Mod «Romance On The Rim» for Rimworld (v1.3 - 1.4)

Romance On The Rim

I think romance relationship in vanilla is pretty barren, nothing more than lovin', marriage, or breakup. The goal of this mod is to make vanilla romance more lively and flavorful. It adds a new "Romance" need and several romantic interactions, thoughts, and precepts.


1. New need: Romance:
Pawns who have lovers will feel good or bad based on its level; they can get it through (automatic) romantic interactions.

2. New "interactions"
When their romance need level is low, colonists will spend some time doing these kinds of romantic interactions:

  • Kiss.
  • Pillow talk, lovers will stay in their bed for a while chit-chatting.
  • Get joy together; they will use the same form of recreation. It's nice to see them playing poker or billiards together, right? This also support modded joy activities,
  • (Royalty) Play an instrument for their lover.
  • Skygaze together.

If you really like or hate one of them, you can adjust their happening weights in mod settings. Set it to 0 will completely disable that kind of interaction.

3. New Thoughts:

  • Longing: after lovers separate (not on the same map) for a while, this concern will aggravate then alleviate over time.
  • Estranged: if they separate for a long time. It will decrease their social opinion over time.
  • Reunion: if they separate for a while and meet again
  • Worry: when one's lover is sick.

4. Precepts (Ideology):
This mod adds four precepts that allow you to take more control over romance in your colony: Cheating, Romance attempt, Breakup, and Marriage proposal.
Generally, there're four options: Arranged (those four kinds of interactions will not triggered naturally, you can only execute it manually with right click.That doesn't mean it will 100% succeed, you can see the success chance if you activate it in mod settings.) Forbidden (simply set its prob to 0), Discouraged (halve its chance), and Encouraged (double its chance).
What's your view of love? Would you like nobody in your colony will marry or breakup? An Utopia where no one will cheat others?

5. Misc:

  • Lovers will try to have the same daily routine, when their lover is going to the bed, they will try to do so.
  • You can manually start a marriage for couples in the marriage spot, without waiting for the annoying RNG.
  • You can see how long two pawns have been in relationship and their anniversary date in social tab.
