Humanoid Alien Races 2.0


A framework for the creation of new alien races in Rimworld

If you ever thought that the racial diversity in rimworld is... not that diverse and you want to change that, you came to the right place. This framework allows to easily add new humanoid races without any C# knowledge, purely in xml.

The rest is up to your creativity: Fantasy races like Elves, Dwarves and Orks; Sci-Fi races like Asari, Klingons, Gungans eldritch beings like Deep Ones; or greenskinned and leaf-sporting mutants.


Feature Overview:
  • Custom graphics with weighted skin and hair color selection
  • Changing graphics with lifestages
  • Drawing Tails
  • Integration in the starting pawns, as well as slaves and refugees
  • Gender distribution
  • Backstories
  • Drawsize (independent from race size)
  • Support for genderless races
  • Optional immunity to aging related body problems
  • Optional forced traits
  • Customizable thoughts, with specific configurations for eating and butchering humanlikes
  • Modifiable relation chances
  • Race restricted clothing, weapons, research projects, buildings, bills and plants.

Worked perfectly, thank you! Just had to right click and remove my local copy of the mod. Instant fix. Thank you for your time!

Yeah it seems your harmony is outdated. Try resubbing.

Any help with line 3663? Is this a problem with Harmony instead?
erdelf  [author] 17 hours ago 
again, please provide a log, you two. As you can see at the top there was no update for the last 2 weeks.

I have the same problem drsavage was talking about, earlier, I cant generate a world when this is enabled. I have disabled everything but this, harmony, and mod manager, yet still cant generate a world, it just kicks me back to generate world screen after loading.

uh, alright ? I'm slightly confused as to what happened, but if it's fine for you.

Update: I was able to spawn in the world and then add in many of the mods however now my starting human pawn is having problems in the sense I cannot read his bio. Its no big deal as I found any other pawns bios can be read but its just odd. It could be androids mod as I used a scenario from that mod.

Thank you for taking a look

@drsavagethe1, it is always a conflict. Post your log and I can usually point out what's the issue. Usually a missing dependency for one of your mods or wrong load order.
