“Everyone is dead or gone. This story is over. Perhaps someone else will find a use for the ruins of this place.”

Have you ever wondered who might be that person which will find a use for those ruins? With the Real Ruins Mod it might be you, or any other RimWorld player!

Real Ruins Mod features

The Real Ruins Mod generates ruins on your map. Ruins of real bases of other players. It periodically uploads each user’s base snapshot to the server, and when one enters a new map, this database provides pieces of those stored bases as templates for abandoned ruins.

Perhaps you’ll find just empty dirty shelter with badly damaged wooden bed and a pair of chairs. Perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to find someone’s silver vault before scavengers from the nearest settlement arrive!

The Real Ruins Mod also adds two new events:

  • Caravan found ruins happens while travelling. You can stop and investigate small ruins complex. It usually does not have any really valuable, but it worth checking anyway. It can contain hostile people or animals though.
  • Pristine ruins found: a large abandoned base was discovered nearby. All local settlements sending troops there to loot, and you can also participate in this massacre. Stakes are high, but reward is even higher.

Compatibility notes

The Real Ruins Mod can be added anytime, it won’t break your saves and will take effect when you enter into a new map, either starting a new game or with a caravan. However, you probably won’t be able to remove it freely if you have active maps generated with this mod.

This mod requires a remote server to store and distribute ruins blueprints, and this server has traffic and storage fees. So if you want to help the author with server upkeep, you can make a donation using the links below.

This mod is compatible with existing saves, it does not require you to start a new game.

Real Ruins Mod Review
  • Necessity
  • Originality
  • Fun


The Real Ruins Mod is an absolute must for RimWorld. Starting with someone else’s ruins makes the start of the game a lot more fun, and gives you a chance to explore and gather ideas, even planning your next base upon somebody else’s layout. The two events added are also quite fun, since raiders quickly go into those abandoned bases as well, and it becomes a real challenge for survival.
