Trait Diversity


This mod adds 220 new species traits to the game:
    ■ 169 Biological Traits
    • 113 common traits
    • 46 non-lithoids only
    • 10 lithoids only
    ■ 51 Robotic Traits
    • 33 common traits
    • 7 robots only
    • 11 machines only

The mod contains some origin traits which cannot be added or removed after the start of the game. The traits will provide very distinctive attributes/backgrounds for the species and some of them may alter the gameplay remarkably. They are indicated as blue icons.

User Interface Mods Compatibility
This mod contains Cadence's Extremely Lazily Written Genemodding UI to provide enough space for species modification window. Hence, the mod overrides the user interface file for species modification window:
  • interface/species_mod_window.gui
I've run several tests with some popular UI mods and I found no critical issue; you can use other UI mods without any compatibility mod. You can choose which species modification window you would like to use by sorting the mods. If you want to use the species modification window from other UI mod, sort the UI mod below of this mod. Otherwise, if you want to use the species modification window from CELWGUI, sort this mod below of the UI mod.

Other Compatibility Issue
Note that the mod manipulates and overrides vanilla elements of:
  • (game_rules) pop_has_random_ethics
  • (game_rules) species_has_happiness
I believe these are quite few changes, the mod should be compatible with most other mods.

  • Cadence - the creator of CELWGUI
  • Scradegn - provided polished descriptions
  • oh no - provided polished descriptions
  • C Moore - contributed on the update for Libra (v3.3.*)

If you really enjoy the mod and wish to support me, you can offer a donation for my work on this mod with a few dollars. Any support is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hope you enjoy this mod, please rate it if you like it!

Hopefully the author is still active.

Also found a fix to traits not showing up. Duplication problems.

They may have added traits in 3.9 but since this mod only adds new traits and only overwrites a vanilla gui-file I don't suspect that this will be a problem.

Ah yes this would require an update
raw666 Sep 15 @ 8:16pm 
They added traits, so yes.

Does this need an update for 3.9?
