Gender Politics

Available in English & Chinese / 中文

Gender Politics adds Matriarchies and Patriarchies into the game, in the form of civics and policies. This mod will allow you to play an empire of Amazonian Warrior Women, a Roman-style Patriarchal Republic, or any other sort of gender-based hierarchy. So far, the mod adds:
- 9 Gender-Based Civics
- 7 Types of Gender Segregation for Leaders (Policy)
- 54 Governments*
- 11 AI Personalities
- 2 Traits
- 2 Job Types
*Random empire names are restricted until I can fully update the localisation. Apologies for the inconvenience.

As previously stated, every biological empire will have access to a Gender Policy, with 5 different options which you can choose depending on certain conditions.

Gender Equality: Default Leader Generation.
Patriarchy / Matriarchy: Only men / women can be rulers or serve as military leaders.
Andrarchy / Gynarchy: Completely excludes men / women as leaders.

Additionally, there are 9 Gender-Based Civics, many focused around the Homemaker Job; which produces stability, amenities, and pop growth speed at a high cost of food and consumer goods.

I’ve tried to make the mod as compatible as possible. Generally, it will work fine alongside any mod which doesn’t affect gender-based leader generation or ethics. The mod will also be incompatible with any mod which changes Slavery Types.

Ethics and Civics Classic Compatibility Patch
Ethics & Civics: Bug Branch Compatibility Patch
Ethics and Civics Alternative - Redux Compatibility Patch

I am more than happy for anyone to download and reupload this mod if they wish to edit it for compatibility or language reasons.

Coming Soon
I have almost finished all the features I want to see with this mod. Expect to see these soon:
- More events & flavour
- Additional Casus Bellorum
- Galactic Community resolutions

@The Hat Thank you for the kind words, it means a lot :) I actually play similarly to you, although the only way my computer can handle galaxies that big is if I'm doing a genocidal empire lol

@gts_fan08 Is it the actual civics that aren't showing up, or the government type (megacorporation, trade league, etc)? If it's the civics, then do you have any mods that change corporations? The only thing it checks for to become visible is if you have the megacorporation authority (or the 3 types if you have the bug branch patch)

How do you get the Corporate options to appear? I feel I'm missing something.

I am also glad you made unique personalities I always look for mods that can make those 80+ empires unique to interact with!

The reason I love this mod is that it adds another set of variables to conflicts, politics and alliances. Making the galaxy less predictable. I play with 80 empire starts + mods, meaning closer to 100. 5x primitives on 2.5k galaxies which I find a sweetspot for performance. Adding another political spectrum for conflict means huge alliance blobs are less likely to form which is great.

@Mr.Worner Thanks man!

@otaviofilipe4 Sorry for the wait, I've been away for some time. I've fixed the issue, so the policy should work again now. Thanks for letting me know.

@睿智的群星玩家+1000 Thank you so much! This actually made my day when I saw it. It makes me happy this mod will be more accessible :)
