Today I've received a new MoO3 modification by Richy
. Here's the description of his Race Ethos Mod:
I've modded ethos back into the game as three separate race pick categories.
Version 1.0 includes:
(Pursuit of knowledge, Honour, Materialism, Equality)
(Individualist, Clan, Nationalist, Universal)
(Monotheist, Polytheist, Atheist, Emperor-god)
In-game description of each pick (about four pages of text), and unique point values for each race that match the backstory.
This mod is made on Bard_of_Prey's Race Balance Mod. It includes all the changes from version 1.2 of his mod, except the Social Order category, which I removed. It was too similar to the Ethos Society category.
Plus, I've removed the pick points for Senate Membership. I thought it was kinda dumb, since random was free and you could just quick-game it until you got the starting position you wanted. From now on, any starting position you want is free. I however had to switch the order of the picks in that category, so that random would come last and be the default pick.
The ethos have been balanced so each pick would have the same point value.
Mathematically, it's balanced. I have not however had time to test the balance in-game. It should work, but I would appreciate any and all feedback.
