Ludeon Studios has released the latest alpha update to RimWorld, the 'prison architect of the stars' where we manage a handful of colonists stranded on a world in the outer rim of space. Fortunately, they've now got beer.
The fascist prohibition is over as Alpha 9 spreads the freedom to get drunk, go through the hell of a hangover, and put up with do-gooder teetotaler jerks. There are plenty of other new additions as well.
Corn and rice join the crop rotation, we can gear our people with personal shields, use heavy SMGs, and now clean up after vomiting colonists. There are tons of tweaks, like surgery no longer always guaranteed to be successful, and can in fact make things a whole lot worse at times.
Older characters also appear at a low but regular rate, and colonists also have both a biological and a chronological age. Stuff left out can now also degrade over time, and weapons now have quality levels.
