Extended Traits

This mod adds over 20 additional species traits to select from, as well as 6 additional ruler and governor traits that your Empire rulers can spawn with.

Featured in SirTristan's Stellaris Mod Spotlight #3.

This mod should be compatible with most mods and it does not modify any vanilla files. Any issues with compatibility are not the result of this mod.

Most of the trait mods are having this issue (example, Parasite from another is now a beneifical trait, instead of it's usual negatives.) That said it does seem to be hit and miss at the moment.

Taking a glance at the traits I don't see any that would obviously not work so I am sort of curious which are not functioning, maybe the tile blocker and contruction stuff as the code behind that stuff was all changed?

which traits Darth? It's not that I doubt you; it's that I want to know more :)

As of 2.2 some of the traits no longer do anything.

if any of you want to manually change the version number to your version, just to get rid of the red box, the remote file id is 681816257.

So far as i've seen in my playthroughs, this mod still seems to work fine. Hopefully the author will update it soon, though.

This *appears* to be working in 2.1, but for all I know the back-end could be broken while the front -end looks fine. I'd appreciate some clarification on this, and an update to at least flag it for 2.1 if there are no issues.

Hello I'm trying to build a big mod that could use your own mod. If you are already alive Please contact me on discord at Skygroot#0384. I need some precision about your code.
