Alien Children Compatibility

Version 1.1.0a

With the 1.2 update of the main mod and the old scaling option and the "new scaling mode" enabled (the new mode should be on by default) it should now show the AlienRaces children with their tails etc. in the right place (there are still some minor issues [slightly wrong positions of ears etc. for some I am looking into], but this way a lot of the other visual mods also work ok)

So you should no longer need this mod for Rimworld 1.2 (If some issues come up that can't get resolved in the main-mod I might have to make a new version - let me know I you see weird things and if some of the outstanding issues got resolved with the new scaling mode)

Might cause problems when used together with Baby & Children (BnC)
This may get resolved in an upcoming update


Requires at least HugsLib 5.0.0

Load order
// HugsLib
// Humanoid Alien Races 2.0
// Alien Children Compatibility

This mod is only needed if you use a Humanoid Alien Race which has extra bodyparts not beeing drawn for their children (for example tails on a Orassan or Leeani child).

Children, school and learning

Humanoid Alien Races 2.0

Please report any Alien Races that still have issues.

@Zanoscar & zadenzeal - This mod was only to resolve visual problems (pre Rimworld 1.2) like the description above says

@Zanoscar - You likely have to test it (but with CSL in Rimworld 1.2, see the link above), the mods have a lot of overlap and so they might cause problems - it is normally recommened to only let one of the mods handle pregnancies, so you could deactivate them in the CSL mod-options and then only use it for the scaling of alien children (it is possible that it can be configured to work, but I am not to sure)

@zadenzeal - CSL (link above) does with the 'Mixed species allowed' option on (should be by default)

Probably been asked but does this work with Children & Pregnancy? It's a mod on the Ludeon forums, not steam.

Does this allow conception between two species of xenos?

@I'm here to kick gum - Yeah ^^ no problem
(I got the joke, but most people struggle with some of this more involved stuff, had the files still open anyway ;D)

Got it.
First one was a joke so no offense intended if one was conveyed

@I'm here to kick gum - lol ^^ it is actually not that bad, but making them older through a mod like [KV] or dev tools is probably easier because you can mess stuff up (that mod at least) if you are not careful (but you can also unsub/resub to the mod worst case, updates also overwrite your changes, but sounds like that would not be an issue with your old version - maybe)

'Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\294100\1654061947\1.2\Defs\AlienRace\' 'BetaCamelRace.xml' etc.

at the end of the file you would change this part:

--<minAge> 18 </minAge>
-- ..

@Dylan Got it, open random files and smash face against keyboard

@I'm here to kick gum - Worst case you can try to disable the mod-option 'Fertility from life stage' or 'Fertility from old age' - after a quick look I think they have a pretty late adult life stage 16 and 18 years for example (base/camel) you could try to edit that in the beta humanoids mod files '..\Defs\AlienRaceBetaCamelRace.xml' etc. 'lifeStageAges' Adult.. minAge or make them older though mods like '[KV] change dresser' etc.

I don't know if you could even fix it and it might be from me having an old version, but I keep getting the not reproductive trait on beta humanoids. What do?

@PotatoIsUs - I posted it here in the comments, but I forgot to put it in the mod description, this mod is no longer needed for 1.2 (read above, I just updated it)
