Det's Xenotypes - Venators

Welcome to another installment of Det's Xenotypes, this time introducing a quite unique race, the Venators.
Venators are a quick and delicate race of expert hunters, with great shooting skills. They eat mainly raw flesh and are hence used to butchering and skinning corpses, which they are faster and more capable at than most.

When push comes to shove, they have the ability to paralyze foes with their neurotoxin, which can be useful both for enslaving pawns or to kill prey with ease.

As usual, this is the GitHub link: GitHub link[github.com]

The mod also comes with a unique weapon that can only be equipped by Venators, only if the Athena Framework is loaded. And a new piece of apparel to make your Venators more menacing.

Q: "Is this mod CE compatible?"
A: "Likely not."

Q: "But DetVisor, there are no aliens in Rimworld!"
A: "Correct, and these aren't aliens, they're a hyper-adapted subset of humans much like the other vanilla xenotypes.They're meant to look more unique than things like Hussars and Impids, while still looking human."

Q: "Since they don't have a faction, where do they spawn?"
A: "They can occasionally spawn as raiders or pirates, or simply as part of the Outlander factions."

Q: "Why are the stats of the Farsighted gene so specific?"
A: "After some painstaking tweaking and balancing I've come up with a set of buffs that isn't TOO op, but it may still occasionally throw weird numbers when calculating accuracy."

Q: "Is this safe to add mid-save?"
A: "Yes, but don't remove it!"

Q: "I encountered an error!"
A: "Send me the logs so I can identify the issue."

Q: "Can I suggest additions or new features?"
A: "Although the mod is considered complete, feel free to write down in the comments."

It shouldn't be making impossible to hit anything, no, you might have another mod that changes how the stat works. The debuff isn't extreme.

The farsighted gene doesn't just disadvantage you in melee, it makes it impossible to hit anything.
Is this the intended behavior?
Even if the pawn reaches a melee skill 20, even this is useless.

The mask looks awesome! Looking forward to trying a spacer Venator run.

It should be craftable at a fabrication bench, if not it'll be fixed soon.
