RimWorld Update 1.3.3101 Patch Notes
Here are the complete patch notes for RimWorld Update 1.3.3101:
Fluid ideoligions: The big feature in this update is fluid ideoligions.
You can start the game in a new mode where you define a simple, minimal ideoligion to begin with. Then, during play, you’ll earn development points by completing rituals and taking actions that satisfy your beliefs.
With enough development points, you can reform your ideoligion to alter memes, styles, precepts, and everything else. You’ll be able to build up the complexity and intensity of your belief system as the game progresses.
The original system with stable ideoligions also remains available, if you want to play a specific belief system from the start.
Compatibility: This update should be compatible with all savegames and mods.
Thanks: Thanks to everyone who helped us test this update on the official development Discord server, and to modders (Oskar and pals) who updated their mods to keep compatibility!
– Add new fluid ideo system. This allows you to start the game with a “fluid” ideoligion that has only one meme. Over time, you gain development points on that ideoligion by completing rituals and other ideoligion-related actions. With enough development points, you can reform the ideoligion to alter memes or precepts, change styles, change structure, and more.

– Predators no longer hunt animals on the other side of fences. Predators can still randomly wander into animal pens.
– Add an alert to thell the player when a predator has wandered into a pen in use.
– The game now shows the source of each piece of content on its stats card, so you know which expansion/mod something came from. It also shows which expansion/mod each research project came from.
– Players can now choose a few items to bring to new archonexus settlement. This is especially helpful for things you really need like luciferium.
