How do you play Rimworld multiplayer mod?

I recently purchased RimWorld on Steam, and I wanted to play the game with my friends.  It didn’t take me long to figure out that there was no official multiplayer mode for this game, but after looking through the Steam Workshop, I found many mods that promised to allow me to play with my friends.  After trying one of these mods, I decided to write this article so that others might benefit from my experience on rimworld multiplayer mod.
