Author of the SmurfeRim Mod: Walking Problem

Warning! This is not a “cute” mod, smurfs are not as cute as you think!

The SmurfeRim Mod adds the Smurfs, a new kind of animal that behaves similarly to bug hives, but can also be tamed for farming a unique an valuable liquid.

Your life in the rim is about to change! You can either help bring the lost Smurfette back together with the Smurfs and Papa Smurf – and all live happily ever after under your roof… OR you will have to face the ancient threat that had Gargamel the Great once faced – eradicating the “Blue Threat” / Smurfestation before they get out of hand… OR you can resume the role of Gargamel the Evil Wizard, to contain and farm these blue creatures of their “magic potion”, to bring health and happiness to the galaxy.

Beware! If you’re suddenly feeling super good and happy for no apparent reason deep in the woods, you might have wandered right into a Smurf Village.

SmurfeRim Mod features

  • The Smurfs will be the only way you can acquire an important ingredient you have always needed, but can never produce.
  • Smurfestation events are extremely dangerous, never look down on the Smurfs.
  • Papa Smurfs are tough, and their numbers often correspond exactly as per the number of Smurf Villages there are on the map (there will be more or less depending on your difficulty settings).
  • Smurfs from Smurfestations cannot be tamed, they had pledged a lifetime of hatred for you.
  • The only smurfs that can be tamed are the “good smurfs” that we know from the movies and cartoons. The tame-able smurfs will wander into the map occasionally.
  • If you want to reproduce smurfs, take note: there is only 1 female Smurf, and it’s Smurfette. She may wander into your colony, and if you missed her, you may not see her again for a long long time
  • Papa Smurfs will not reproduce with Smurfette, so forget about that kinky thought.
  • Blue Meat. Period.
  • Blue Skin/Leather. Period.

Backstory

The Smurfs are a species of blue humanoids that live in mushroom-shaped houses in the forest, usually led by Papa Smurf. The smurf-mmunity in their village are always cooperative, sharing and kind environments for every Smurfs living there. While popular myths had always portrayed the Smurfs as being repressed and violently suppressed by the “Evil” Wizard Gargamel, the stories turned out to be misinformation and fake news propagated by Smurfs-sympathizers.

The forgotten truth is that Gargamel was actually the archwizard of a long forgotten kingdom, that was sent by the King himself to fight and eradicate the “Blue Threat”. Hundreds upon thousands of peasants had been mercilessly murdered by a never seen before blue-skinned humanoid monsters, although no bigger than a house cat. What was later known to be Smurfs, had an incredible rate of reproductions and their kind spreads like wildfire. Their cute and innocent appearance hides the fiercely territorial nature of these magical creatures. The smurfs had became so powerful during the time of Gargamel, that the Smurfs declared all out war against the archwizard’s Kingdom. All that stand between the Smurfs and the destruction of the Kingdom, was Gargamel the Great himself.

It was during this period of great calamity that Gargamel made the greatest discovery about the Smurfs: their body contains a unique liquid that can be found no where else, and that it had great life-saving abilities when it is combined with medical herbs. The usage of the magic potion extracted from the Smurfs brought about an revolution in the medical world and Gargamel was regarded as the greatest healer of his time after he made the discovery. However, as the only person in the Kingdom, to be able to subdue the “Blue Threat”; along with the fact that the discovery of this new highly sought after commodity resulted in the a Royal decree that restricts any information about the source of the potion to be leaked – Gargamel was condemned to a life in a run-down hovel, with his mangy cat Azrael, deep in the dark forest on the outskirt of this Kingdom.

The fiercely loyal Gargamel dedicated his final few decades of his life to his King, keeping the population of Smurfs to just 1 village – while constantly “milking” the excess smurfs, to be readied for the weekly horse carriage that arrives to delivers the precious potions to the capital. The Kingdom became rich and powerful, being the sole producer of the rare potion; while at the edge of the Kingdom, Gargamel gets old and senile; often heard cursing at the Smurfs by passing travellers. Gargamel was eventually slain by Papa Smurf after falling into an ambush in one of his daily smurfs culling. Azrael died beside him as the old cat was surrounded and bashed to death by numerous Smurfs. The Smurfs then went into hibernation for centuries in wait for a time where the humans are weaker, and thus they can rise again.

Eventually the young and rich populace in subsequent generations conveniently forgot about Gargamel’s lifelong sacrifice, while sinister underground organisations started their misinformation campaign to cast Gargamel as the evil wizard that captures cute smurfs as a magical ingredient to make gold, for some unknown political reasons. As for the magic potion, it was later renamed as n_u__oa__n_ by one of the brand strategist of the government-owned corporation of the new republic, tasked to manage and sell the remaining stock of potions that was stashed during the time of Gargamel. Today, the Corporation remains to be the only seller of _e__r__mi_e in the entire galaxy; and they are still selling exclusively from Gargamel’s depleting stockpile, as the Smurfs were never found since, and all artificial means of reproducing the ingredient had failed.
