Compatibility notes

There shouldn’t be any incompatibilities or issues, but in case anything pops up, report issues in the comments.

When you report a bug, we need a hugslib log – without it, your bug reports are useless to us, as harsh as it sounds. Make sure you have the Hugslib mod downloaded and active, and then press the green ‘Share logs’ button on developer’s console. Add the link you get to your bug report.


Q: Will this mod work without Biotech DLC?
A: No. It uses the new gene system to work with Biotech.

Q: Will you make a HAR version of this race?
A: No, this is exclusively for the Biotech DLC.

Q: Do these genes appear in genepacks in the game?
A: They do! You can find the individual genes and apply them to any pawn!

Q: Can I find this race in the game?
A: Yes, the new Sanguophage variants have a chance to appear whenever a Sanguophage pawn is spawned, for example during the Sanguophage meet up event.

Q: Can I add it to an ongoing save?
A: Yes, but I don’t think you can safely remove xenotype mods, so don’t come crying when your game breaks if you remove mods!

Q: I don’t have the Psychofluid Well in my game!
A: You don’t have Royalty DLC. It will not be available without it.

Q: Does this mod work with any other sanguophage mods?
A: I don’t see why it shouldn’t. We don’t change the base sanguophage – we only add new ones.

Q: Can I put other hemogen types in the Hemogen network?
A: No, all Deathresting structures need standard hemogen, and as such the network only accepts standard hemogen also.

Q: I have a suggestion!
A: Excellent! Pop it in the comments section.

Q: CE compatible?
A: No idea. If it is, I’d appreciate if someone from CE let me know.
