Biotech is the best DLC of all released so far in terms of actual content. Especially because it addedsystem of modification with actual downsides\point system. Because 9 modders out of 10 will add super unbalanced or op traits with no downsides at all. This hepled to mitigate such trash mods.
As for children - for each furry raising a children in psatel tones there is a gang of child cannibal raiders. Or kids attending a leesson on how to dismember\ampuate limbs from a captive. Or last stand againt a swarm of insects infstation, where all colony forms a line and sometimes megaspiders breakthrough to children, standing in the back line and start chewing them.

I gotta agree, Biotech is great. Royalty was good, but rather small, and I wasn't sold on Ideology (still seems needlessly bloated to me), but Biotech's kids and gene modding are both awesome. As for raising them, I usually give a 3 year old a revolver and send him off to hunt rabbits or something. By the time he grows up, he's a bona fide super soldier, ready to ventilate skulls at a ripe old age of 13. Incredibly easy to run a futuristic Spartan society – kids all get turned into murder machines that massacre enemies and enslave those with good skills to tend to all their other needs. Throw in gene modding and you can create literal space marines whose full time job is pillaging towns and running slave plantations.

Like first you hate nutrient paste, then a guy converts you and you suddenly love it? To give a basic example.

That is actually a pretty bad example for your point. Converts actually often do end up being the biggest zealots.

They also tend to shit on their former practice, like constantly.

Kinda started to get interested in the game, but from what I can tell all your colonists are randomly generated even if you can press the button to get a new one. That seems like chore, can't you just build them (with or without a mod) yourself?

Also how viable is it to pick one of those game modes where it's just one dude and you attain supremacy through a legion of robots, a cloned underclass, lobotomized raiders or something like that?

Viable, but does somewhat expect you to understand the game's mechanics, so best to do a few standard crashlandings first to get the know the ins and outs.

Caim My unsolicited advice: play the game 100% vanilla on default settings first, and as you play make note every time you get annoyed "why aren't there toilets" or whatnot. Then add mods to fix the things that annoy you. Resist the urge to go window shopping and install a bunch of mods "oh laser cthulhu clown college mod looks cool", at least until you know the basic game like the back of your hand.

You can always use an autoroller instead of cheaty editors. Set up what combo of traits you want and let it roll. Prepare Moderately and Random Plus are the mods that do it. First mod rolls physically before your eyes, second one uses accelerated calculation for up to 50k rolls.

That applies to every game. Why screw yourself by not trying to original experience?

Some games require mods to run without constant crashes, game-breaking bugs, a civilized resolution or have them run in the first place.

Don't you think UI improvements are a must?

Obviously I agree, but there are Codexers out there who say things like "this game is unplayable without the cool mods I like so you should use them too". Look at how many people think Jagged Alliance 2 v1.13 is "officially" the true version to play, XCOM Long War, etc. Even I have my pet mods I think Rimworld is "unplayable" without but I wouldn't try to force feed them to other people.

rimworld definitely doesn't "require" mods but I can't imagine why you would play without stuff like replacable walls and similar type of mods. so many of rimworld's mods are basically professional-level ones that fit seamlessly into the game and don't detract in any meaningful way

I play with a shitton of mods but consider "drop that brick" or whatever it's called now as the only must have one, no downsides and fixes a kinda common annoyance (not being able to assign something to colonist A that has already been assigned to colonist B by the game).

I think the only must have mod is the one where you can set numerical priorities for tasks for each colonist.

The only "mod" I use is my own patience at savescumming which is very effective in this game.

Savescum is great when you're trying out the game, but gets boring on repeat playthroughs. Try doing ironman run sometime, it's quite fun and the game is designed for it

I have enough mods to have the game load for about 3 minutes every time.

Which is also a good form of preventing savescumming.
