Wish you could make sure you didn't get unrealistic non-male popes? I've already asked for a feature that would remedy this. Go upvote it!

DISCLAIMER: THIS MOD WAS NOT ORIGINALLY CREATED BY ME! I am simply keeping this favorite mod of mine by Ofaloaf up to date and adding additional features / improvements as I see fit.

Link to the original mod:

My version of the mod also adds:

- Catholic room background:
- Vatican Square (empty, night)
- Vatican Square (with crowds, day)
- St. Peter's Interior
- Adoration Chapel

- Papal seal icons:
- Gold
- Silver
- Black
(Thanks to swefpifh for the original gold icon - his mod can be found here):

- Custom pop clothing for different Le Guin 2.2 jobs (visible in planet population view)

- Custom greeting sound when you encounter the Holy See as another empire

- Religious Prefixes
- For men (Br., Fr., Rev... etc.)
- For women (Sr., Mo., Rev. Mo... etc.)

- Religious Suffixes for religious orders
- For men (S.J., O.P., O.F.M... etc.)
- For women (S.N.D., S.V... etc.)

- Catholic Ship Names
- Military ship classes named after choirs of angels
- Science ships named after famous Catholic scientists
- Construction ships named after famous Catholic builders, architects, and artists

- Catholic Fleet Names (from various martial orders of the Catholic Church)

- Papal default empire: the "Holy See".


NOTE: To get the default empire looking as it does in my screenshot (i.e. to make it so the flag is not black), you must install the most popular colors mod ( ) and the most popular flags/emblems mod ( ), and the mod required by the flags & emblems mod (

You don't need to install these, however. If you'd rather use different color or emblem mods, just make a copy of the default empire and customize it as you like (click edit, then save it as whatever name you choose).


Original Description from Ofaloaf below:

This adds a standalone 'Papal' species to the game.

This mod also adds a 'Church names' nameset, which is a mix of latinized first names and surnames from various Catholic dignitaries from across history

Hi @Mattia von Sigmund - I've updated the mod for 3.1 and added several portraits which include the Papal Tiara of Paul VI. I hope you'll find it to your liking. Thanks again for the excellent suggestion!

If you need photos for the/a Papal Tiara that could fit well in an world dominated tradionalist Pope, please do just add me, i would be more than glad to help!
Mattia von Sigmund Oct 5, 2021 @ 5:07am 
Many thanks mate!

Hi @Mattia von Sigmund - that's a great suggestion, thanks! I'll look into that.
Mattia von Sigmund Oct 3, 2021 @ 10:16am 
We need a portrait with a pope with the papal crown (Papal Tiara) That would be amazing!

@VegasOriginal Everything is working perfectly now! Thank you for updating this mod, one of my favorites for this game by far

Hi @MasterJoseph57 - I went ahead and updated the mod for 3.0, fixing several bugs in the process, including the one you reported.

Please check to see if your error persists. (You may need to unsubscribe from the mod and subscribe / install it again)

Hi MasterJoseph57 - thanks for bringing this to my attention. I was able to reproduce your bug when selecting clothing set 3 for my leader, but not clothing set 1. That one worked. Can you try again and make sure it's really happening for both 3 and 1, and not just 3?

I'm currently looking into how to fix it for 3.
MasterJoseph57 Jul 2, 2021 @ 11:42pm 
Hey VegasOriginal, I wanted to let you know that Clothing Set 1 and 3 both show up as red vestments with chasubles on the portrait selection screen but when you load in game they both spawn the leader with the brown vestments. I'm not sure if there is a way for you to quickly fix this but thought I should just let you know. Thanks for this great mod!
