About this mod

This is a zombie mod for Rimworld, featuring zombies that can infect your colonists and turn them into more zombies, as well as zombie horde and a zombie apocalypse event in which the virus goes airborne and reanimates all corpses regardless of their cause of death.

There have been a handful of popular mods adding new enemies to the game, but
most of them just have a new look and are slightly more powerful than
normal, or attack in slightly larger groups. I wanted to add an enemy
that has truly unique behavior in the world of Rimworld, and adds new
challenges to the game when fighting them.

So I added zombies.


- Zombies are mindless killers. They kill you and your enemies indiscriminately.
- Their bites are infectious. If a colonist is bitten you will get an
alert. The colonist will slowly die of the bite, and then they will turn
into a zombie immediately on death.
- They are 20% slower than colonists and other enemies, and can be easily killed with Cutting weapons like knives and swords.
- You can easily keep track of the origin of any zombie by looking at
their names. A zombie that was spawned in a zombie horde will simply be
named "Zombie". If the zombie reanimated from someone who was originally
living in your game, their name will be "Zombie [Name]". If they were a
colonist there will be a pair of "*"'s surrounding their name.

Zombie Infection
- The Zombie Infection will affect any limb that is bitten by a zombie. This can be seen in the Health tab.
- Removing infected limbs will cure a colonist of the infection.

Zombie Hordes (raids)
- Zombies attack in large numbers.
- Zombie hordes always attack immediately.
- Zombie stragglers will be left behind, forcing you to leave your base
to deal with them after the initial zombie attack is over.
- Zombies do not give up or flee.

Zombie Apocalypse/Airborne Zombie Virus
- The zombie virus goes airborne and affects all humans and corpses. All
human corpses will start reanimating even if they were never bitten
while living.
- This incident never ends. Once the virus goes airborne, everyone is infected.
