  • Apini scenario to start with (neolithic).
  • Honey and Beeswax production.
  • Beeswax walls & floors.

Apini race notes

The Apini suffer respiratory failure from smoking. But as long as they don’t smoke again for a while it will wear off.

Apini suck at mining! This is intentional, apini are much better at building their homes than digging them out.

Sooo… why don’t apini have stings? Lore wise Apini were genetically engineered by humans for terraforming. The first thing humans would remove from giant bees is the sting.

Apini can’t have bionic legs because… balancing issues: imagine four bionic legs. Nyoooooom.

Apini Queens aren’t and will never be playable pawns.

Apini Race Mod Review
  • Necessity
  • Originality
  • Textures
  • Fun


The Apini Race Mod is very orignal and expands the fun that vanilla RimWorld provides a little further. It is particularly interesting that the race comes with certain traits derivable from them being bees, such as their construction skills. You can tell apini apart by their antennas, though it would be nice if they had other unique traits on their face.
