Traits are a major part of CKII and thus also for any overhaul mod. This article will explain everything you need to know about trait modding. Notepad++ is strongly recommended for modding traits, but Notepad or other plain text editors can also be used.


Definition

Traits must be defined in the folder common/traits/. To make the trait, you will first need to tell the game what effects it has. That will be done here. For this tutorial, a 'selfish' trait will be used as an example. To start off, give the trait a name:

selfish = {
}

Type

After defining the trait itself, you'll want to define its flags. The flags you can use are listed below.

The trait icons are grouped by type in-game, from left to right: education, caste_tier, undefined, lifestyle, personality, is_health. Inside a group, the order is based on the order the traits have been added to the character.

代码名称 Value 描述 例子 代码
agnatic bool 有这种特质的父亲的孩子总是会继承这种特质。 Sayyid.png agnatic = yes
birth int 10000个出生的角色中带有这种特质的个数。(例如,100 = 1%) birth = 100
blinding bool The trait reflects permanent blinding of the character while imprisoned. In some cultures, this disinherits them. Blinded.png blinding = yes
cached bool All characters that have this trait will be cached for more efficient event trigger evaluation (should be a limited number).

Then the character scope <trait_name> = {} can be use to scope to all characters with that trait.

cached = yes
can_hold_titles bool 此特质禁止角色持有任何头衔。 Horse.png can_hold_titles = no
cannot_inherit bool 此特质禁止角色继承任何头衔。 Monk.png cannot_inherit = yes
cannot_marry bool 此特质禁止角色结婚。查看词条can_marry。不会禁止纳妾 Monk.png cannot_marry = yes
caste_tier int 此特质是种姓特质,caste_tier定义了种姓的顺序。 Brahmin.png caste_tier = 3
customizer bool 如果为非,该特质不会在角色设计器中可供选择。 customizer = no
education bool 此特质是一种教育特质。 Amateurish plotter.png education = yes
attribute attribute 主要属性,如教育特质。 Amateurish plotter.png attribute = intrigue
enatic bool 有这种特质的母亲的孩子总是会继承这种特质。 enatic = yes
hidden bool 隐藏特质不会在角色界面显示。 hidden = yes
immortal bool 一旦拥有此特质,角色既不会衰老也不会自然死亡(但会死于处决或效果死亡)。参见词条永生 immortal = yes
in_hiding bool 此特质会激活“藏匿中”(in_hiding )效果。 In hiding.png in_hiding = yes
inbred bool 此特质表明该角色是近亲繁殖的,会影响后代、生育能力及自然死亡原因。 Inbred.png inbred = yes
incapacitating bool 这个角色很虚弱且需要摄政 Incapable.png incapacitating = yes
inherit_chance int 新生儿可以从父母那里继承这种特质的概率(可选);如果父母双方都有这种特质,则为两次相同概率之和。 inherit_chance = 15
both_parent_has_trait_inherit_chance int Dwarf.png both_parent_has_trait_inherit_chance = 50
is_epidemic bool The trait is given by an epidemic outbreak. See has_epidemic condition. Tuberculosis.png is_epidemic = yes
is_health bool The trait affects the health of a character, usually restricting certain events that require full health. See health_traits condition. Stressed.png is_health = yes
is_illness bool The trait is a regular disease. See is_ill condition and cure_illness effect. Ill.png is_illness = yes
leader bool The trait is a command/leadership trait. See can_have_more_leadership_traits condition. Light foot leader.png leader = yes
leadership_traits int The character automatically receives X number of leadership traits (army command traits). leadership_traits = 1
childhood bool The trait is a childhood trait. Willful.png childhood = yes
lifestyle bool The trait is a lifestyle choice. See lifestyle_traits condition. Scholar.png lifestyle = yes
opposites List<trait> List of traits that cannot be held simultaneously with this trait opposites = { imbecile quick genius }
personality bool The trait is a personality trait (see trigger personality_traits = <min. count>) Lustful.png personality = yes
prevent_decadence bool The trait prevents the Muslim character from accumulating decadence prevent_decadence = yes
priest bool The trait implies a theological education. See is_priest condition) Detached priest.png priest = yes
pilgrimage bool The character is temporarily away and will need a regent but does not lose any wards Pilgrim.png pilgrimage = yes
random bool With random = no, the trait will not be given to randomly-generated characters (when the game starts or when characters are spawned other than by being born). random = yes is the default. Specific semantics vary with the general trait type. random = no
rebel_inherited bool Used for peasant leader and heresiarch in vanilla. When characters with such traits win the revolt war and die without an heir the successor also gains the peasant leader/heresiarch trait. Peasant Leader.png rebel_inherited = yes
religious bool The trait is religious in nature and should be automatically discarded upon religion change. Note: it will also be discarded upon pagan reformation. Mutazilite.png religious = yes
religious_branch religion The trait identifies a sect of that religion. This will also make the children inherit the trait on birth. Shaivist hindu.png religious_branch = jain
ruler_designer_cost int Sets a custom cost (in years of ruler's age, positive or negative) for this trait in the Ruler Designer. ruler_designer_cost = -20
tolerates_<religion_group> bool The character tolerates characters of that religion group and is tolerated by them. <religion_group> is dynamic and may be a group not present in vanilla. Sympathy Christendom.png tolerates_christian = yes

tolerates_jewish_group = yes
tolerates_muslim = yes
tolerates_pagan_group = yes
tolerates_zoroastrian_group = yes
tolerates_indian_group = yes

same_trait_visibility bool The trait will only be visible on other characters if the player also has it. Handy for things like secret societies, cults, and secret bears.

This is a shortcut for:

is_visible = { 
	OR = {
		character = FROM
		has_trait = <trait>
	}
}
Not used in vanilla same_trait_visibility = yes
hidden_from_others bool The trait will only be visible to the player who has the trait, even other players with the same trait won't see it.

This is a shortcut for is_visible = { character = FROM }.

Secretly Catholic.png hidden_from_others = yes
is_visible conditions Conditions for the trait to be visible:
  • ROOT the character looking at the trait
  • FROM is the character with the trait

Typically a character should see their own traits, so at least character = FROM is used.

Secretly Catholic.png
is_visible = {
  OR = {
    character = FROM
    society_member_of = secret_religious_society_catholic
    AND = {
      is_close_relative = FROM
      trait = secretly_catholic
    }
  }
}
vice bool Lustful.png vice = yes
virtue bool Charitable.png virtue = yes
succession_gfx bool Wounded.png succession_gfx = yes
is_symptom bool Cough.png is_symptom = yes

In the case of the 'selfish' trait, a personality flag would be used. Do note that it is possible to use multiple flags for a trait.

selfish = {
  personality = yes
}

Modifiers

主条目:Modifiers

After setting the trait's flags, you'll likely want to give it some character modifiers and/or a command modifier.


For 'selfish', a stewardship benefit and a diplomacy penalty would be appropriate.

selfish = {
  personality = yes
stewardship = 2 # The CKII engine doesn't recognize '+', simply write the number when giving positive numbers diplomacy = -1 }

Regarding relations, no one likes someone who is selfish, so in our case, we would have to add an opposite for charitable and a general_opinion:

 selfish = {
  personality = yes
stewardship = 2 # The CKII engine doesn't recognize '+', simply write the number when giving positive numbers diplomacy = -1
opposites = { trait = charitable }
opposite_opinion = -30 general_opinion = -10 }

Regarding AI Weights, which affect how non-player characters will act (most of which primarily affect strategic considerations), for the 'selfish' trait, an ai_rationality would be good.

selfish = {
  personality = yes
stewardship = 2 # The CKII engine doesn't recognize '+', simply write the number when giving positive numbers diplomacy = -1
opposites = { trait = charitable }
opposite_opinion = -30 general_opinion = -10
ai_rationality = -10 }

Potential

The potential section defines who can randomly start with the trait on campaign start, be randomly generated with the trait (for example via the employment decisions), or gain it randomly when coming of age. It does however not affect the outcomes of events giving the trait; even if the character does not meet the potential conditions he can still get the trait via events.

The potential section is simply one or more conditions. It is put immediately after the opening bracket of the trait. We might for example want to prevent the game from generating selfish children.

selfish = {
  potential = {
     age = 16 #This prevents anyone from under 16 being generated with the trait
  }
  personality = yes
stewardship = 2 # The CKII engine doesn't recognize '+', simply write the number when giving positive numbers diplomacy = -1
opposites = { trait = charitable } opposite_opinion = -30 general_opinion = -10
ai_rationality = -10 }

Compliments

Since Way of Life it is possible to define localisation keys for compliments and insults which will appear in letters from other characters, or in any other localised text via the [GetRootFromCompliment] and [GetRootFromInsult] (etc.) localisation commands. These keys will need to be localised.

Flag Description Code
male_compliment

female_compliment

Compliments in a letter to a man/woman male_compliment = COMPL_SCHOLAR
male_compliment_adj

female_compliment_adj

Positive Adjectives in a letter to a man/woman male_compliment_adj = COMPL_LEARNED
male_insult

female_insult

Insults in a letter to a man/woman male_insult = INSULT_TORTURER
male_insult_adj

female_insult_adj

Negative Adjectives in a letter to a man/woman male_insult_adj = INSULT_EVIL
child_compliment Compliments in a letter written by a child, used instead of the adult ones child_compliment = COMPL_SMARTY
child_compliment_adj Positive adjectives in a letter written by a child, used instead of the adult ones child_compliment_adj = COMPL_CLEVER
child_insult Insults in a letter written by a child, used instead of the adult ones child_insult = INSULT_PEABRAIN
child_insult_adj Negative Adjectives in a letter written by a child, used instead of the adult ones child_insult_adj = INSULT_STUPID
selfish = {
  potential = {
     age = 16
  }
  personality = yes
  stewardship = 2
  diplomacy = -1
  opposites = {
     trait = charitable
  }
  
  opposite_opinion = -30
  general_opinion = -10
  ai_rationality = -10
  
  male_insult = INSULT_SELFCENTERED
  female_insult = INSULT_SELFCENTERED
  male_insult_adj = INSULT_SELFISH
  female_insult_adj = INSULT_SELFISH
}

Icon

Icons make traits easily recognizable to the player. An icon can be made in Photoshop or another image editor. It needs to be 24x24 pixels, and saved as a .dds or .tga file.

When you have your icon, save it in <yourmodfolder>\gfx\traits. Now create a file at <yourmodofolder>\interface\<yourmod>.gfx. You will use this file to tell the game where the icon is stored.

Start by adding this to the file:

spriteTypes = {
	spriteType = {
	
	}
}

Make sure that you never repeat the spriteTypes block! You should instead be adding spriteType (no "s" on the end) items inside its opening and closing { curly brackets/braces }.

Now, add a line for the name:

spriteType = {
  name = "GFX_trait_<nameofthetrait>"
}

Now you should add a line to tell the game where the icon is stored:

spriteType = {
  name = "GFX_trait_<nameofthetrait>"
  texturefile = "gfx/traits/<nameofthetraiticon>.tga"
}

Add some standard lines at the end:

spriteType = {
 name = "GFX_trait_<nameofthetrait>"
 texturefile = "gfx/traits/<nameofthetrait>.tga"
 noOfFrames = 1
 norefcount = yes
 effectFile = "gfx/FX/buttonstate.lua"
}

For our 'selfish' trait, this would look like this:

spriteType = {
 name = "GFX_trait_selfish"
 texturefile = "gfx/traits/selfish.tga"
 noOfFrames = 1
 norefcount = yes
 effectFile = "gfx/FX/buttonstate.lua"
}

Save the file, and your trait should now have an icon.

Localisation

主条目:Localisation

Traits require the following localization keys:

  • <trait_name> : name of the trait
  • <trait_name>_desc : description of the trait
  • <trait_name>_death : in case the trait reduces heath (health = -1), used to describe the cause for premature "death by trait" (death_reason = death_trait). For instance:
ill_death;after a period of illness;d'une grave maladie;nach einer Zeit der Krankheit;;después de un período de enfermedad;;;;;;;;;x

If we do this with the selfish trait, we will get this:

selfish;Selfish;Égoïste;Selbstsüchtig;;Egoísta;;;;;;;;;x
selfish_desc;This character is Selfish and only thinks about himself;Ce personage est Égoïste et ne pense qu'a lui;German;;Spanish;;;;;;;;;x

Save the localisation as a .csv file. Once you have done that, you are done and you now have yourself a new trait!
