RimWorld Mods

Device Standby Mod

Author of the Device Standby Mod: Cedaro

Devices will standby while not used, with configurable power consumption.

Why not just Turn It On and Off? Most buildings in Turn It On and Off are hardcoded, making it almost impossible to extend. And the author also seems no longer focusing on RimWorld.

This mod is a complete rewrite, more building can standby, more mod compatible, more performance friendly (probably), and can be easily extended using just xml patches.
