Vanilla Ideology Expanded – Relics and Artifacts Mod

Authors of the Vanilla Ideology Expanded – Relics and Artifacts Mod: Oskar Potocki, Sarg Bjornson

Vanilla Ideology Expanded is a mini-series of mods aimed at expanding the content in ideology – be it memes, relics and symbols or icons alike.

Relics and Artifacts module introduces over 40 new inert relics to join the small selection of relics in vanilla game. No longer you will be bound to have a mysterious cube, or an ark, or a shard. We’ve added scrolls, statuettes, idols, sword shards, gauntlets, mechanoid heads, tech parts and many, many more.

Furthermore, this mod adds patches to apparel, allowing it to also be a relic, because I got tired of seeing all the possible guns as relics, but not helmets, armors etc.

This of course increases the list of possible relics with hundreds of new items, so we have overhauled the relic selection UI, and added a search bar so it’s easier to find what you want!

In case of any feedback or bug reports, please utilise the comment section of the mod on the Steam workshop.

A: Can I add it mid-playthrough to an existing save?
A: Yes, albeit to no effect, is ideologies are only created upon starting a new game.

Q: I don’t like certain relic, how can I remove it?
A: At the moment there is no way to easily remove certain relics, you might need to learn xml editing and cut it out yourself.

Q: Can I suggest some new relics?
A: Sure thing, but I doubt we will be adding many more. We already quadrupled vanilla relic selection.

Q: Where should this mod be placed in the mod load order queue?
A: Anywhere under Ideology.

Q: Is it compatible with another mod that adds relics?
A: Should be!

Q: Does this work without Ideology?
A: Are there relics without Ideology?

Q: Does this work with Combat Extended?
A: Why would you do that to me. Please. Leave me alone. Get out.
