The A New Species is an event that is inevitable as long as main species Pops live on a colony with less than 40% Mod habitability.png Habitability. The eventual reward is an additional subspecies with additional traits.

Initial eventsEdit

A New Species

 

Many of the [species name] inhabitants on [colony name] have turned to genetic modification to help them cope with the [planet or moon]'s hostile environment. The changes they have made to themselves are being passed on to their offspring, and their physical appearance is changing at an alarming rate. They have started referring to themselves as "[random name]".


 
Trigger conditions:
  • Not   Gestalt Consciousness
  •   Gene Tailoring researched
  • At least 4 main species Pops on a colony
  • Main Species has below 40%   Habitability on the colony
  • Main Species has below 50%   Happiness on the colony
Mean time to happen:

200 months


 
OK
  • Some Pops gain the   Self-Modified trait, the colony's climate preference and random traits

Rising Tensions

 

Tensions between the [self-modified species name] population on [colony name] and the [main species name] they share the planet with are rising. Several attacks have been carried out by individuals on both sides, including at least two bombings. Both sides of this conflict are radicalizing, and more acts of violence seem likely.


 
Trigger conditions:
  • A New Species
  • Not   Pacifist or   Fanatic Pacifist
  • Not   Xenophile or   Fanatic Xenophile
  • The species with the   Self-Modified trait isn't purged or enslaved
Mean time to happen:

220 months


 
Worrying.
  • All Self-Modified and main species Pops on the colony gain   Militarist or   Xenophobe ethics

Tension eventsEdit

The tension events will all take place after the Rising Tensions event. Once all tension events have been triggered the event chain will end with no further notice.

Representative

 

A representative from the [self modified species name] communities on [colony name] has traveled to [capital name] to voice the grievances of his people. According to him, [self modified species name] are subjected to widespread discrimination by the [main species name] authorities on his homeworld, and he is demanding we take immediate action to improve the situation.


 
Trigger conditions:
  • Rising Tensions
  • The species with the   Self-Modified trait isn't purged or enslaved
Mean time to happen:

220 months


 
Worrying.

Modified Species Massacred

 

A [main species name] extremist militia group recently staged an attack against a major [self modified species name] city on [colony name]. The inhabitants were massacred by the thousands and their homes razed to the ground. A message left by the attackers on the planetary datanet simply states:

[colony name] belongs to the [main species name]!"


 
Trigger conditions:
  • Rising Tensions
  • The species with the   Self-Modified trait isn't purged or enslaved
Mean time to happen:

220 months


 
Worrying.
  • A Self-Modified species Pop on the colony dies

Main Species Massacred

 

Heavy fighting has been reported from the rural areas of [colony name]. There have been several clashes between [self modified species name] and [main species name] irregulars. The [self-modified species plural] appear to have won the day, and their guerrillas have burned down many settlements. Civilian casualties are high.


 
Trigger conditions:
  • Rising Tensions
  • The species with the   Self-Modified trait isn't purged or enslaved
Mean time to happen:

220 months


 
Worrying.
  • A main species Pop on the colony dies

Increased Fertility

 

The [self modified species plural] on [colony name] have made alterations to their DNA. Not only has their fertility been dramatically increased, but their children now reach adulthood much faster than normal [main species plural]. [self modified species name] population numbers may soon be increasing at an exponential rate.


 
Trigger conditions:
  • Rising Tensions
  • The species with the   Self-Modified trait isn't purged or enslaved
Mean time to happen:

220 months


 
Worrying.
  • The Self-Modified species gains the   Rapid Breeders trait

Increased Strength

 

In responts to the violent confrontations between [self modified species name] and [main species name] inhabitants on [colony name], the [self modified species plural] have taken their genetic modifications one step further. They are now both stronger and faster, while their bodies can take punishment that would kill normal [self modified species plural].

Just two unarmed [self modified species plural] reportedly killed at least a dozen members of a [main species name] militia in a recent incident. We may be looking at a dangerous escalation.


 
Trigger conditions:
  • Rising Tensions
  • The species with the   Self-Modified trait isn't purged or enslaved
Mean time to happen:

220 months


 
Worrying.
  • The Self-Modified species gains the   Strong trait
