The Humanoid Alien Races Mod is a framework for the creation of new alien races in RimWorld. This is a tool for modders, it it will not add content to your game.
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 green skinned and leaf-sporting mutants.
If you’re planning on creating your own races with this mod and want to chat with the authors, join them on Discord.
