EdB Prepare Carefully

Customize your RimWorld colonists, choose your gear and prepare carefully for your crash landing! Use the optional point limits to try to create a balanced start or keep points disabled to build the starting group that you always wanted to try. Save your setup as a preset so that you can start your game the same way later.

1.0.13 Released (28 July 2019)Version 1.0.13 of the mod is now available and should automatically update from the Workshop. This release contains bug-fixes and mod compatibility fixes. Be sure that you’re running 1.0.2150 of the game.

Why doesn’t the “Prepare Carefully” button appear for me?First and foremost, make sure that you’ve enabled the mod. This will be obvious to experienced mod users, but if you’re new to RimWorld mods, you need to go into the Mods menu when you start the game and explicitly enable a mod after you’ve subscribed to it.

I can see in the comments that this is a problem for a decent number of users. It’s very difficult for me to know what’s happening–especially if you’ve got dozens of other mods installed. I have heard that some people have success with uninstalling and then reinstalling the game, but it’s difficult for me to recommend that approach. Posting the game’s log file somewhere (if you know how to do that) can help, but only do so if this if you’ve pared down the number of mods you’re using to a minimum.

When I click the Prepare Carefully button, it doesn’t do anything or a get an error message. Why doesn’t it work?This usually happens because another mod is doing something that Prepare Carefully does not expect, and it causes an error. It’s impossible to test with every mod out there, so issues like this are inevitable. However, we do try to continue to improve the error handling in the mod to try to avoid them.

How do I help you figure out which mod is causing the problem?You’ll need to experiment to figure out which mod is causing the problem. If you have development mode enabled, you’ll likely see some clues about where the error is happening. If you figure out which mod it is, you can let me know, and I’ll try to take a look. Unfortunately, a lot of times when I try to reproduce a problem, it works just fine for me–it’s frustrating, but there’s not much I can do in situations where that happens.

Which other mods don’t work with Prepare Carefully?We’re always trying to make Prepare Carefully compatible with as many other mods as possible, but other mods are unpredictable and sometimes are not compatible. Help us by trying to figure out which mods are causing problems and reporting it in the “bugs and issues” discussion.

Psychology, Facial Stuff and Gradient Hair don’t work anymoreI am not the author of those mods or of their integrations with Prepare Carefully, so I cannot fix them. The way those mods are written, they are locked in to a specific version of Prepare Carefully, and every time I release a new version, it will break their integration. I recommend trying the RIMMSAssemble mod to see if that fixes your problem. It’s written specifically to address the versioning issue that causes these mods to stop be compatible. It fixes it for me.

If you’re the author of one of those mods, consider using reflection instead of adding direct references to the Prepare Carefully DLL to avoid the versioning issues.

I’m using point limits. Why does {insert thing here} cost the number of points that it does? It should cost more/less.The point system relies on the vanilla game’s built-in “market values.” These market values are balanced for vanilla gameplay and not for setting up a starting group of colonists. I’ve made some tweaks to try to balance this, but it really is an impossible task, and you will see things that seem wrong. For example, the vanilla values for colonists do not take passions or traits into account (for the most part). I’ve added costs for passions, but I’ve left traits alone.
