Work In Progress, still updating original post.




Welcome to the Plus! Minimod for Distant Worlds Extended. This Minimod compliments Distant Worlds Extended by adding 12 new races (for a total of 50) and introduces new victory conditions and racial strengths and weaknesses, dialogs, shipsets, flags, policy, etc.

The characteristics of the Original Races and Extended Races will be unmodified except for the biases.txt. This mod requires you to first install Distant Worlds Extended 3.0.2.

This minimod will be released at end of June 2013.

The Sharlanka are insectoids resembling termites from an industrial desert planet that is one of the largest manufacturing hubs in the galaxy. They believe in a culture that a great defense is more important than a good offense. Most Sharlanka have a fascination for design, architecture, sculpture, and metalworking, with the highest status in their society belonging to Architects who build ultrastrong spacesports that are unique to this civilization. 

Even thou the majority of Sharlanka are introverted and love to be isolated from others to concentrate on their creations, they are quite accepting of different races because they love to learn about new cultures and hear new adventures. There isolationist nature makes them natural explorers since they enjoy traveling far from their home.

Reading the Galactopedia and learning is popular among this civilization, especially history and cultures about other empires. Loyalty is highly valued in their society because they believe that in everything in the universe requires a high degree of symmetry and balance. They see relationships as great architecture that requires perfect symmetry to keep society stable, and loyalty as their cultural foundation.

The Ranga are a small and peaceful four armed rodent civilization who rarely have seen violence in the history of their extremely large society. Some beleived as many as 30 billion Ranga lived peacefully on their homeworld. The majority of society practices a spiritual ideology called Raganatha that preaches that there is a galactic karma that affects every being and that the actions an individual makes affects the whole universe. The Raganatha ideology frowns upon violence and war and idolizes karma and connectedness with all beings of the galaxy. The Ranga are said to have the most disciplined ambassadors in the known galaxy since they are gifted with high charisma and are quite politically savvy.

The Ranga civilization was almost exterminated to the point of extinction because a fleet of Keskudons managed to enslaved their homeworld without a single weapon shot from the Ranga. The Ranga believed that the Keskudons were not truly evil and came to their homewworld as a pilgrimage to convert to Raganatha until it was too late.

The problem with Rangas is that they are physically weak so they were almost useless as hard labor, and during the mating season become highly aggressive for a short period.The Keskudons decided to exterminate the whole civilization by bombarding their homeworld, instead of dealing with the constant conversations about karma and goodwill.

The few million Ranga that were enslaved on penal colony ships were later sold to other civilizations as pets. The majority of benevolent civilizations eventually passed laws that granted Ranga there freedom. The Ranga's new mission is to spread Raganatha across the galaxy by forming alliances to rid the galaxy of diabolical races and creating an Utopian galaxy.

Love the portraits you've selected, and the first two races sound very interesting! Are you doing your own artwork for the ships and ground troops?

I made a video showing the shipsets I am using. Since Distant Worlds Shadows has updated their shipsets to Woddman's, I used some shipsets from the Distant Worlds Original theme and 2 or 3 pirate shipsets. The Empires that use pirate shipsets will have a different engine flame color,( and those races have a story element of how they got those pirate shipsets). My goal is to eventually give them all custom shipsets, but the ones they currently have are quite excellent. I think Im also going to use some shipsets from Sirians mod.

I am currently at the Electronic Daisy Carnival (EDC) Music Festival in Las Vegas for the weekend, which is why its taking a bit of time to update the original post with everything, but each new race will be unique and be interesting to play and immerse yourself in.

Hi, could you put a link to the music played in that video please?

I'm compiling all sorts of tracks to enrich my distant world playlist atm. I'll also be posting the ones I use as a gesture of participation when I get back from holiday.

Hmm, even the YouTube video isn't working for me. Sound is broken/pulsed, and the screen remains black. Other vids work fine.

Shame, was looking forward to this as well.


nb: Azuran hasn't been on since his last post above, Last July 18th.... :(
