1) 41 new traits many with up to 5 levels and negative versions of each.This adds a total of over 300 traits to the game. I suggest also looking at my Zero Cost traits mod that adds over 50 unique traits to the game.

2) Without touching the core AI personality files I have made it so that the AI personalities spawn when using traits with similar effects to the vanilla ones that they require.

A lot of the math I use is based on the fact that adaptability and strong double in cost as their effects double. This leads me to cost things in increments based on 50% of their in game value.

opinions.txt trying to find an easy solution to having to do that for opinion modifiers.

Latest Updates
fixed other species happiness traits to be more impactful given I didn't realize they changed how the modifier works. they are noew 1 to 3 and -1 to -3. and provide bonuses in increments of 5.

Turned off positive versions of the consumer goods reduction trait until i can know for sure if its granting a positive bonus to mineral production. This will not affect save games as I simply turned the traits off from selection.

Added some new traits and re jiggered some of the math in light of changes to core traits

Posted new version while preserving legacy version

Exende Aug 6 @ 1:49pm <-- whenever I use your mod there are just way too many traits and it just overflows, any chance of a scroll bar or something like it?

i think it is not necassary to overwrite the opinions file, just make a "clone" of the opinions (custom opionions file) and just apply for your own traits ;) Jun 9 @ 5:12pm 
For non-steam user, please?

Oh and unscruplous eaters 5 grants benifits not penalties.

With all these traits now enabled for gene moding could we perhaps get some icon differention? On the species creation scree you at least have a discriptor in addtion to the icon. Gene mod window just the icon. At minimum color codeing more postive, negative, and mixed. Perhaps Blue,red, and yellow respectivly?

If it isn't too much to ask, would you probably be so kind and localize this mod (and perhaps your other ones too) by copying the english files and renaming them into the other languages?
I'd really like to play with them but since i don't use the english version i am just getting an underscore_text instead of the actual names and descriptions. :/

really looking forward to mess up a species even more, thanks Gwen :) let's see if I can get growth rate even lower than -80% now :D
