Vanilla Recycling Expanded Mod

Author of the Vanilla Recycling Expanded Mod: Oskar Potocki

Vanilla Recycling Expanded is our spin on recycling in RimWorld. No longer you will be left with hundreds of wastepacks that you will try to send away into distant parts of the world to forget about them. No longer you will have to try and cheese the game to get rid of pollution. Vanilla Recycling Expanded actually gives wastepacks a purpose, and will let you convert them into a variety of useful new resources!

Players will be able to create improved pumps to drain even more pollution, as well as construct special recycling stations that will turn wastepacks into precious resources whilst also generating a whole new type of wastepack that’s significantly more volatile. Players may also turn standard wastepacks into a different type of wastepacks that can be stored outside.

If you have any suggestions, make sure to leave them in the comments!

Q: I can’t find any recycling stuff in my game?
A: Ensure you have research the Basic recycling and Complex recycling research projects.

Q: Does this mod let us recycle apparel or weapons?
A: No, this mod simply lets you recycle wastepacks.

Q: This mod is imbalanced.
A: We accept all feedback. It’s very difficult to balance a mod that lets you produce something valuable from something considered to be ‘waste’. Big factor in that process is the large amount of work required. We have done the napkin math, but there is only so far you can take it. If you have some findings and you’d like to help us balance the numbers, leave a comment down below.
