Enhanced Gene Modding

Enhanced Gene Modding by ParasiteX

This mod will give you an extra menu that will pop-up after successfully gene modding a species, and will give you extra customization options.

These options include:
  • Rename species.
  • Change appearance of species.
  • Modify all leaders, armies and colonizers of same sub-species to new genemod species.
  • Set gene modded species as your new founding species.
  • Convert a species you have gene modded into a subspecies of your founding species.
  • Designate a new homeworld for a species within your empire.
  • Change species class.
  • Change species name-list.
  • Convert machine species into robots.

Currently you can only change appearance of your species to the built-in and DLC exclusive species portraits.
You will need to have the DLC installed to be able to apply any of the DLC exclusive portraits.

You can only have one gene modding menu up at a time. This was made this way to avoid scripting conflicts.
So avoid genemodding other species while the window is still up.

Several of the more advanced options. Like changing to a different species class or converting species identity, requires the Genetic Resequencing tech from the Evolutionary Mastery Ascension Perk. If you don't own Utopia, then you isntead need Gene Seed Purification

Short delay of one in-game days before gene modding menu pops up after uplifting a species.

Cheat mode!
Cheat mode removes all the balance restrictions and prevents happiness penalties.
To enable cheats, type "event genemodenh.369" in console without quotation marks. Re-type it again to disable cheats.
You can also download this optional mod that adds a new empire edict that lets you toggle cheat mode without having to use console commands.
Cheat Mode Button

Should be very compatible with most mods without any major issues. It does not edit any vanilla files.

Not compatible with Ironman achievements

1.9.x version

Russian by Banana Pineapple
Korean by Ratori
French by EwieFairy
Chinese by 星臣
German by SI-Abominus

English locilization files for all the standard non-english languages.

If for whatever reason the menu doesn't appear when it should. Then you can try this console command to try and reset the mod. "event genemodenh.661".

If a species with 0 pops is still showing in menu. Then you simply need to modify the species template and click the trashcan icon in bottom to get rid of it.

I hope parasite fixes this it would really help. I dont like the look of some portraits to be able to change it would be awsome!

This mod has just stopped working completely for me now :(

Greetings ParasiteX,

I would like to ask, if you had the time to check for 2.2.2.

Best regards

Doesn't seem to work at all for me unfortunately. I don't get any menu popup when I genemod a species. I think it might have to do with the fact that I don't seem to get an actual pop-up at all about sucessfully modifying a species. It just ends up with a small notification in the top of the screen, with no window popping up.

Sure seems to work fine for me so far. Haven't used all the available options though.

Probably will work. You can always try it and see. But i can't update the version number to 2.2 until i have had time to verify myself.
Timrath Dec 10, 2018 @ 4:59am 
Might it be possible that the mod doesn't even need any updating? 2.2 didn't change all that much in the way of genetic modification.

Dang, okay. Good luck with whatever your other stuff is dude, and know that I eagerly await your return! This mod was always one of my must haves.
