Mod authors can use this framework to easily patch movement type support for their pawns, apparel, genes (with Biotech) or other items, or even define custom movement types. How to achieve all of this is described in the wiki.

Pathfinding Framework Mod features

Movement types


Aquatic creatures swim effortlessly through all bodies of water. However, they find themselves out of their element on land.


Soaring above obstacles, these creatures have the skies as their domain, hovering gracefully over most landscapes.


Specialized for rapid movement beneath the surface, these creatures excel in sand and soil. On other terrains, they move similarly to their terrestrial counterparts.


Born of fire and earth, these creatures roam the land and swim through molten lava with ease, yet they have an innate aversion to water.

Custom movement types

It is also possible to define custom movement types using the framework, check the wiki for details.

Other features

With Pathfinding Framework, you can create apparel, genes or hediffs which grant movement types to your pawns.

Using the Giddy-Up 2 mod, your colonists can ride on animals to take advantage of their movement type.

In the mod options window of Pathfinding Framework, you can enable an option to let creatures that are inherently non-flammable such as mechanoids move through fire.
