Giddy-up! Caravan Mod

Author of the Giddy-up! Caravan Mod: Roolo

Let your colonists ride to far lands on elephants, muffalos, llamas or any other animal, modded or not!

Giddy-up! Caravan Mod features

The Giddy-up! Caravan Mod is packed with the following features:

Faster world travel

Ever felt that traveling through the world map is just too slow? With the Giddy-up! Caravan Mod, you can get to your destination on the world map more quickly using the animals you have trained.

In the form caravan dialog, you can select for what colonist should ride each animal. This improves caravan movement speed in different ways:

  • First, the animal’s movement speed is used instead of the colonist’s when the caravan map speed is calculated.
  • Moreover, if every colonist is riding an animal, a large movement bonus is applied (configurable in the mod options). If not, a small movement bonus is applied, that depends on the ratio between riding pawns and not-riding pawns, and a maximum value that can be set in the mod options.
  • There is one downside to riding animals in a caravan though: the carrying capacity of the animal is decreased by the weight of the pawn that rides it.

NPC mount usage

Visitors and traders also use mounts! What mounts they use can be configured in the mod options.

Support for any animal

Any animal can be used as mount, even modded animals. By default, small animals are disabled.

There is one thing to take into account when adding modded animals. Pawns are by default drawn on top of and in front of the animal. However, sometimes it looks nicer when pawns are drawn behind the animal (most of the times this is when the animal has a long neck or when it has horns). The drawing priority can be configured for each animal in the mod options.

For vanilla animals these settings are already configured, but for modded animals you may need to change the drawing priority for some animals in order to make it look nice.


Almost anything can be configured, so take a look at the mod settings of both Giddy-up! Core and Giddy-up Caravan.

How to form a caravan with raiders

First make sure you have tamed animals with obedience training. Then, in the form caravan dialog, make sure both riders and animals are selected to be part of the caravan. After this you can set riders for each animal in the same dialog.

Compatibility notes

The Giddy-up! Caravan Mod uses harmony and should be compatible with most mods. It is save to remove from saved games, however, make sure no pawns are mounted in the save when removing the mod, as that will cause issues.

The Giddy-up! Caravan Mod is available in EnglishRussian (by Garr Incorporated), Japanese (by Proxyer), Simplified Chinese (by LingLuo) and Traditional Chinese (by Biscuit).
