lewd-ish, crusader kings 

me: i wonder if anyone is actually working on/has made that gender swap mod i wanted. let me check the ck3 workshop

however, i did find a sick total conversion mod that lets you play in sengoku-era japan, so it's not a total loss

lmaooo i was looking at the ck2 game files to see how easy it would be to make this matriarchy mod i'm looking for and the way this game handles gender is that every character is male by default unless you put "female = yes" in their data

ok so there's some stuff to do. easy stuff is writing a script to go through every character in the game and add "female=yes" if they're male and remove it if they're female, and replacing every instance of "female" with "male" and vice versa in the culture descriptions, 'cause for instance "christianity" has a doctring "doctrine_gender_male_dominated" and "doctrine_clerical_gender_male_only".

harder stuff is changing the names, replacing every male character's name with an appropriate female name, but fortunately this game contains within it a corpus of names categorized by culture and gender. seems totally possible, I think i'm gonna try and do this.

ok update on this: i wrote a python script to change all the religions and characters in the game and it like, basically works. i havent changed the character names yet so it's very funny

crusader kings 

pretty surprising how conceptually easy it was. if you change a religion to be female dominated it automatically knows that that means that the succession law has to be female-preference and stuff. there's some weird edge cases where it now doesn't have certain portraits for things, i'm not sure how to fix that, but honestly it's minor enough that i'm willing to just live with it.

@prophet_goddess why does every single paradox game have the same issue i swear to god

@prophet_goddess when playing Stellaris with portrait mods the portraits for leaders also just sometimes, disappear, I think mostly when species change type in some way and it doesn't know what to do (like [completely hypothetical scenario] you have your race set to look like maids but then do the robot evolution route and there's no robot maid portraits)

@prophet_goddess opened just the image first and I figured this was just a pope where it was a woman but because that's canonically an issue everybody pretended it's a man, which has got to have happened at least once
