Bought the game and finished the tutorial. Or at least did all the stuff until it said I was ready for actually playing the game.
I kind of know the basics now, as it didn't seem to be very difficult to learn.

My question is.. Anyone know of any mods that are interesting but still beginner friendly?
Modding might seem quite early for someone who just bought the game, but I'd like some interesting.. things.. Whatever they may be.

Hospitality; control where visitors go, allow them to buy things, and build relations with them. Let's you decide whether or not people join your colony. Doesn't add too many complicated mechanics.
LT-Doormat: build door mats. They clean pawns feet as they walk over them so you have dirt all over the mat and not all over your base.
Stack Merger; When you have two half full stacks of resources pawns will turn them into one full stack.

Oh nice, installing this now.
Personally I'd prefer to have a mod which lessens the currently ridiculous impact that dirt has on a room's beauty (I mean c'mon, does every pawn have some hidden "clean freak" trait or what?), but this should do nicely to keep at least the fancy rooms looking, well, fancy.

@ Yoink

What's so hilarious about being able to self-treat the wounds?

@ Ultimuh

May I recommend XXL Stack mod? it increases amount of resources in one stack, which is pretty good, IMO. If you ever get frustrated at managing the stockpiles, use XXL Stack in pair with Stack Merger. Also, Hospitality has not yet updated for A17.

Well, I haven't tested to see what the feature's limitations are, but I can already imagine pawns performing the usual critfails and decapitating themselves or something...


Unrelated: having an irritating temperature bug. I have two coolers for my new walk-in freezer, powered by a generator specifically for the two coolers, and yet the room remains at a temperature just slightly cooler than outdoors. Coolers are facing the right way, of course, and their settings are turned to a very low temperature, I cannot see any reason for it not to work. :-\

Hilarity comes from surgical fails and you can't do self surgery.

Look at a tile in your freezers, is it "indoors"? I can't tell you how much power I've wasted before I realized there was a one tile gap in the roof.

I had this one too during the unstable build. Try tearing down both coolers and re-building them. Maybe wall up that segment and put them somewhere else if possible.

Not sure if you mean it's not in game, but if that's what you are saying, it is now.
Surgery is from operations, I haven't been able to make a pawn perform an operation on themselves. I think that self tending only applies to patching up wounds.

I'm not sure about the limitations of self-tending. It might have been a bug, but I lost a save to my doctor bleeding to death because she couldn't/wouldn't patch herself up. The option just didn't come up when right-clicking on her and she slowly bled to death because everyone else was either incapacitated or couldn't do the doctor job. This same doctor didn't have any issues treating her own malaria though.

Did you have the "self tend" option under the health tab green checked?

They do seem to only self-tend when nobody else is available, regardless of the likely outcome. I have my primary doctor (med 16) and a secondary doctor (med 6) and the latter always treats the former's mechanite infection unless she isn't available to do the job, then he'll do it himself. Which seems sensible to me, but it took me a little while to figure out that's what was going on. It's good for her to get the experience doing something relatively easy, I just have to remember to turn off medicine for the secondary doctor if the main guy is seriously injured.

Re-building them didn't work, but I managed to get it working by building them in different places in the end. I'm not sure, but I think I may have built them over empty space instead of walls to begin with, which could have caused the problem... I'm pretty sure that's how I've always built coolers though, as I wasn't aware that you could just build them straight over existing walls without deconstructing them first.     

Naturally, as soon as they were built and my pawns have gone to sleep in their swelteringly hot bunkhouse after a long day's work tearing down and replacing faulty coolers, the potentially deadly heatwave chooses that moment to end. 
Oh well, at least we had some cargo pods drop smokeleaf and yayo around the place to make up for that annoyance a bit.

 It shouldent be an issue of having to build them over existing walls, all that is being done is allowing them to be designated there, it still takes down the wall first...

Hmm, perhaps it was the lack of proper exhaust that was the problem... I had them pumping heat straight into the tiny room containing my fuelled generator to save space.
