Additional Traits v2.2 (A16)

Swenzi has updated the mod to A17, and can be found here:

This mod adds many new traits to the game. May conflict with mods that modify traits or thoughts.

Have you ever felt that there aren't enough traits to immersify your game-play? Well, I've got just the mod for you with Additional Traits!

Current list of traits:

Ver 1.0 Traits:
Confident: These pawns are more personable and have an increased break threshold
Overweight: Works slower, walks slower.
Athletic: Works quicker, walks quicker, aims a little better.
Dextrous: Shorter trigger-pull delay, quicker worker. Good with crafts or arts.
Perceptive: Improves accuracy.
Clean: Healing quality goes up, and food prepared by these people have a reduced chance of being poisonous at the cost of some work speed.
Near-sighted: Less accurate.
Quick-learner: Learns quicker than the average person.
Glutton: Eats quicker than the average person.
Healthy: Recovers quicker from illness than the average person.
Persuasive: Gets the edge in social performance (Trading, recruitment, etc.)
Sucker: Gets suckered into selling for less, and buying for more.
Amateur haggler: Gets slightly cheaper prices and sells for slightly higher.
Haggling enthusiast: Gets much cheaper prices and sells for a lot more.
Awkward: Fumbles through social interactions.
Tucker: These pawns will, uh, tuck you in at night. Bow chicka bow wow.
Melodic: People love interacting with someone with a melodic voice.
Uncouth diplomat: Other factions don't like receiving gifts from such an... uncouth person.
Diplomatic: Gets a little more bang for his buck.
Very diplomatic: Knows how to ease tension between factions with some Ag grease.
Shooting amateur:Terrible at shooting. I really wouldn't give this guy a gun.
Shooting enthusiast: This sharpshooter is worth his salt.
Shooting professional: Rimworld Space Marines!

Ver 1.1 Traits:
Cold-hearted: Lacks empathy, but more or less blends in with society.
Pervert: Unaffected by nudity or sharing a bedroom with strangers. Creepy.
Heavy sleeper: Unaffected by people stomping around next to them while they're sleeping.
Introducing THOUGHTS! Some traits now include mood and relationship impacting effects for increased immersion! It'll take a lot of work for someone to like that pervert.

Version 2.0, professions!

Careful surgeon: NAME is a pretty good surgeon, but they takes a bit more time to complete an operation.
Professional stonecutter: NAME likes to cut boulders down to size. Their stone cutting speed is greatly increased, but their lack of passion for other crafts slows them down.
Professional butcher: NAME likes dressing animals. Their butchering speed is greatly increased, but they're terrible with mechanoids.
Professional tailor: NAME likes making apparel. Their tailoring speed is greatly increased, but they're terrible with smithing.
Loved by animals: NAME is loved by animals, but people don't feel quite the same.
Avid artist: NAME is an avid artist. Their sculpting speed is greatly increased, but they have a weaker constitution and mind.
Genius researcher: Strange new ideas just appear in the mind of NAME. Researching new technology comes easily to NAME, but they always seem distracted.
Greenest thumb: NAME has a passion for gardening. They know exactly what a plant needs to grow happily.
Efficient builder: NAME doesn't like to waste materials. They take care in their work.
Fast miner: NAME knows how to exploit the cleavage of rocks. They don't understand why plants are so much more fragile, though.

An archived version with heroic and godly traits can be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=851164051

Ver 2.1
Removed heroes and god traits and rebalanced some existing traits.

V 2.2:
New spectrum traits! Commonality of spectrum traits rebalanced to be more infrequent.
Uncoordinated: NAME can work under normal conditions just fine, but throw HIM onto a battlefield and HE becomes an uncoordinated mess.
Warrior-in-training: NAME is practiced with melee weapons.
Trained warrior: NAME is one with his weapon, using it like an extension of his own arm.

is there going to be a b19 update anytime soon or are you leaving that to Swenzi?
LaZy Me  [author] Nov 16, 2017 @ 6:13pm 
A18 is on its way out? Jeezums, I haven't been following the game recently. With A18, I may be returning to the game, but no promises. I wouldn't mind if someone were up to updating the mod.
Zairya Nov 15, 2017 @ 7:04am 
Gewen, do you mind if the trait mod(s) will be updated by someone else for A18?
BORT Jun 24, 2017 @ 7:21am 
Lovely, thank you very much. I'll get it updated after, I finish doing this vehicles thing.
LaZy Me  [author] Jun 24, 2017 @ 4:56am 
Regarding heoric and godly traits: I think many people would appreciate it, Swenzi! I'll update the page on Ludeon with your update, and have a link set here as well. Thanks!

Hi, I updated your mod it's available now at:

I was wondering if I could have permission to also update your heroic and godly traits mod?
Also if you would like the to update this mod to A17, I can send you the code I modified so you can host it on this page and the forum.
LaZy Me  [author] May 31, 2017 @ 8:11pm 
I can confirm that it's not currently able to be updated, if someone would update it for the people, I would appreciate it.
BlueTressym May 29, 2017 @ 2:39pm 
I second the previous comment. I like this mod a lot, so I'm sorry to hear you aren't planning to update it. I hope you will reconsider, once you are able, but if not, I hope you will be willing to let someone else take it on, as it would be a shame to let this fall by the wayside. There are a few mods out there offering extra traits, but this is the only one I like. Take Care.
Randonx May 28, 2017 @ 1:48pm 
Gewen, can you confirm that this will not be updated for 17.x so that somebody can take it over?
Dr. Blackburne May 21, 2017 @ 7:18pm 
Gewen, there is a mod that stops debuffs from prisioner harvesting, and one from Slave selling(removes mood) And is incompatible with this mod. How could I fix this? Or what could be causing this ( The mods are both made by GassyTaco)
