Astartes Vehicles Mod

Author of the Astartes Vehicles Mod: Grim Cheese

Radix malorum est cupiditas.

We are excited to present you with a new mod that brings five distinct Space Marine vehicles from the WARHAMMER 40.000 universe to Rimworld. The mod is built on Smash Phil’s Vehicle framework.

Each vehicle has unique weapons and special mechanics adding a little more strategic depth to your gameplay.

In terms of art, our goal was to combine the iconic style of Warhammer 40K with the original Rimworld aesthetic to achieve a seamless blend of these two universes. We hope you’ll enjoy the result!

Compatibility notes

Lasweapons mechanics vary when the Vanilla Weapons Expanded – Laser mod is active.

The vanilla version uses projectiles that explode on impact, giving a larger area of damage.

The VWEL version uses coherent beams, which are more precise, do more damage, and overall more lore accurate, but do not explode on impact.

This mod is NOT compatible with Combat Extended at its current state. (And we don’t intend to patch it on our side. Feel free to do so if you want to 😉
