The Children, School and Learning Mod introduces the possibility for your colonists to have children, and take them to school to learn all the necessary skills to eventually become productive members to the colony.

Children, School and Learning Mod features

The children and pregnancy added by this mod is defined by the following features:

  • By default, children are born 15 years old. This is configurable on the mod settings.
  • Pregnancy works the same way as with animals. There is a 20% chance of pregnancy every time two colonists do the lovin’ action.
  • Children inherit skills from the parents (configurable), but have random passions and traits.
  • A new birth control drug can be bought or crafted and given a schedule to take using a newly created drug policy. One pill lasts 5 days. It can also be added with ‘Prepare Carefully’ under medical.
  • Children are born after 45 days. There are 15 days early-stage (not visible, but chance to vomit), 15 days middle-stage and 15 days late-stage (these are unchanged base-game values!).

The Children, School and Learning Mood also adds a backboard and a school table where skilled pawns can teach different subjects.

  • Students can only learn with a teacher present.
  • Students can learn 1 year until they are 16 (configurable).
  • Teachers need the intellectual skill at a decent level and a high level in the subject they are teaching.

Compatiblity notes

The Children, School and Learning Mod is compatible with the following mods:

It should be compatible with any other mods as long as they don’t change the birth/lovin’ routines, or introduces other species (lovin’ across species can result in children looking wrong).

This mod is compatible with existing saves, it does not require you to start a new game.

The Children, School and Learning Mod finally brings what many of us have longed for: children! The ability to have children brings hope the a colony whose only purpose was otherwise survival. Now you can work for a better future for the next generations. The fact that you can take them to school and make them learn skills is a plus.
