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.

I was having an issue with this mod as well. I couldnt load old saves or generate new maps. Well, it turns out there's an Harmony log file on the desktop that needed be deleted (harmony.log.txt). I suppose the file became to large or something, but it works fine after the deletion.

Apparently the latest update broke the droids in the Androids mod; they now need to sleep and have fun.
