If you want to try some changes in game

Starting resources are hard-coded right now but the rest you can mess around with.

Under mods/base/settings you’ll find timeAndDaySettings.json to change the days in a season, and immigrationSettings.json you can change the immigrants that arrive, but same as the starting resources the initial 7 settlers are hard coded while developers to do the proper embark customisation.

Hunger and thirst are also driven by code but that makes sense to open up to modding.

While playing a game, if you go to the options menu > Other you can copy the map seed.

Other Tips

  • Any open area you mine that reaches 7×7 can cave-in without a support – leaving a section of rock in the middle should work though.
