Ideoligion

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Ideoligions are both a system of mechanics introduced by, and the primary focus of, the Ideology DLC. They allow colonies to introduce a variety of new restrictions and capabilities to change gameplay, as well as new interactions with other factions.

Type of ideoligion[edit]

Whenever you start a new game, you will see the Ideology selection menu once you've selected a world tile.

  • Ideology system inactive - Disables most of the Ideology system. Player colonies and factions will no longer have any ideoligion. With this option, you can create any style, or cosmetic variant, of building (click the circle icon in the Architect tab, right next to the search bar).
However, some aspects of the ideoligion system remain. You can still assign a Leader, and will have access to a funeral and 2 rituals - a dance party and drum party.[Verify] In addition, there will be 3 randomized relics that you can search for.
  • Create ideoligion (fluid) - Design an ideoligion that can change over time.
A fluid ideoligion only has access to 1 meme at the start of the game, which cannot be a high impact meme. Otherwise, a fluid ideoligion has the same customization options as a fixed ideoligion. The difference is that a fluid ideology can change over the course of the game. As you gain development points, you can add / remove memes, and re-customize just about everything else.
  • Create ideoligion (fixed) - Design an ideoligion with complete control.
  • Presets - Use an ideoligion already created for you. Want to live under the mountain, but don't want to make a full ideoligion? Pick the "Mole people" preset. You will start with a Funeral and 2 other random rituals, as well as a random relic. Other aspects of the ideoligion will also be randomized.
For example, the "Classic-like" preset will have the following precepts:

Development points[edit]

Fluid ideoligions are mostly the same as a static one, but can be changed over time through development points. When you have enough points, you can reform the ideoligion. It costs 10 points for the first reformation, and increases by +2 per reform until a max of 20 points. You cannot "store" points; once you can reform, no more points are gained.

Development points can be obtained in the following ways:

  • Performing rituals. Rituals will give a varying amount of points depending on if they are "anytime" rituals or "dated" rituals, how many rituals the ideoligion has and the quality of the ritual. If a ritual achieves a goal that awards development points (such as a conversion), both the points for the goal and the ritual are received in full. Anytime rituals (including funerals) give 1 point for a good outcome and 2 points for a great outcome.

Dated rituals grant more points the fewer rituals the ideoligion has, -as detailed below- however Funerals, Gladiator Duels, Blinding, and Scarification rituals Do not count for the following table.

Terrible Boring Fun Unforgettable
1 Ritual 2 4 6 7
2 Rituals 1 2 3 4
3 Rituals 1 1 2 3
4 Rituals 0 1 1 2
5+ Rituals 0 1 1 1
  • Converting someone: 1 point.

Certain precepts allow an ideoligion to gain points from actions related to the precept.

Reformation allows you to add or remove 1 meme, or change the structure of your ideoligion. If you add a meme, you cannot remove / replace another meme or change structure. In addition, you can only add 1 style at a time. All other changes are unlimited.

Forming an ideoligion[edit]

An ideoligion consists of many separate aspects to customize:

Primary

  • Structure - What deities (or lack thereof) that followers believe in. Examples include Abstract theist, that "god(s) are formless and everywhere", or Christian origin, which is closer to the Abrahamic religions of the west. Structure helps determine the randomized names and lore of your ideoligion. This is almost entirely cosmetic, but can add a few ritual options.
  • Memes - The basic beliefs of the ideoligion. An ideoligion with the Cannibal meme will definitely enjoy human meat. Each ideoligion can have up to 4 memes. Most memes do not add much on their own, but affect what precepts the ideoligion has and cannot have. Some memes have access to role specialists.
  • Precepts - What a follower's belief systems are. Precepts directly determine how colonists will react to certain actions. An ideoligion with Cannibalism: Preferred will have followers enjoy eating human meat. An ideoligion with Cannibalism: Required (Ravenous) will want to eat human meat for every meal.
Certain precepts have statistical effects beyond mood. For instance, Drugs: Essential boosts drug crop yield, synthesis speed, and sell price. These tend to be locked behind their associated meme.

Secondary

  • Rituals - Special occasions, from Dance Party to Animal Sacrifice to Funerals. Every time you do a ritual, you can end up with a good or bad outcome. Good outcomes will increase colonist mood, and come with a special, defined reward. For example, a spectacular festival can give you a random recruit, or cause a gauranlen pod to sprout.
You can increase the chances of a good outcomes by following the ritual's requirements. A funeral can be done without your colonist's body, but the quality will be increased if the corpse is buried.
  • Roles - Every ideoligion has a Leader and Moral Guide. From there, you can have up to 2 types of specialists. A Shooting Specialist will be great at ranged combat, but is unable to do many types of skilled work. Note that you can have as many specialists of a specific type as you want. For example, you can have 3 Shooting Specialists in a single colony, but cannot have a Shooting, Plants, AND Research specialist in the same ideoligion.
  • Relics - Ideoligions can have relics. Relics can be either Legendary quality weapons or specific types of items that serve no other purpose. Relics must be found from a specific, multi-part relic hunt quest, which can take many years. Having a relic present will cause a number of benefits.
  • Buildings - Buildings used by your ideoligion: altars, sacrificial flags, etc. Largely used for rituals. Altars and the like will eventually be demanded by followers of your ideoligion in a temple room.
  • Preferences - Ideoligions can prefer apparel, weapons, and xenotypes Content added by the Biotech DLC, as well as venerate specific animals. Colonists will like having/being around preferred items. Whenever a colonist will dislike a non-preferred item is dependent on the preference in question.

Descriptive

  • Styles - How buildings made by an ideoligious builder will look. Largely cosmetic. However, it interacts with the Diversity of Thought precept. If colonists are neutral or bigoted, then they will enjoy being near styles of the same ideoligion. If colonists appreciate Diversity of Thought, they will enjoy being near styled buildings that their ideoligion could not make. Certain styles will affect more or less buildings.
  • Cultures - Roughly where your ideoligion comes from. Astropolitian represents those coming from space. Corunan represents tribes in general. Entirely cosmetic.
  • Lore - A randomly generated description of the ideoligion, based off of memes, structures, cultures, etc. Entirely cosmetic.
  • Icon / color - An ideoligion's icon is used whenever an ideology will be displayed. The color of the icon will be a preferred color for followers. Followers gain a +1 moodlet for wearing their ideology's color, or their own favorite color. All colors require dye and the same amount of dye.

Certainty[edit]

Certainty is how willing a colonist is to maintain their current ideoligion. Conversion attempts reduce certainty. Once certainty hits 0%, a pawn's ideology will change.

Reassurance[edit]

Certainty increases by a set rate per day, which is dependent on current mood.

  • 1% / day at 20% mood or less
  • 2% / day at 50% mood
  • 3% / day at 80% mood or more

Between 20% and 80% mood, certainty gain is linearly interpolated. Certainty does not regenerate while deathresting.Content added by the Biotech DLC[What else?] The Moral Guide of an ideoligion can also reassure pawns of the same ideoligion, which increases certainty based on Conversion Power. If a pawn is converted, then they will start with 50% certainty in their new ideoligion.

Conversion[edit]

These ways to lower certainty are all considered "Conversion". The certainty reduction is increased by the converter's Conversion Power, and decreased by the user's Global Certainty Loss Factor. Conversion strength is then multiplied by relevant traits. For example, an Undergrounder will be harder to convert from an ideology with the Tunneler meme.

  • Pawns will naturally try to convert each other during day-to-day conversation. This is governed by the Ideoligion Spread Chance, which is increased by the Proselytizing precept.
  • The role of Moral Guide has a "Convert" ability. This is the same as normal conversion, but done on command. This has a cooldown of 3 days.
  • If a pawn is held prisoner, you can set the prisoner to Convert in the Prisoner. If there is a warden of the selected ideoligion available, they will start converting the prisoner.

The certainty reduction of a convert attempt can be calculated as follows:

Certainty loss = 6% × Conversion Power of the Converter × If Converter is Moral Guide (×2) × Global Certainty Loss Factor of Convertee × Relic Conversion Power Factor × Trait/Meme Agreeableness × AI Storyteller's Low pop conversion boost multiplier
  • Relic conversion factor:
Relic Conversion Power Factor

Other certainty reduction: These ways reduce certainty by a set percentage. Reduction is not (directly) impacted by Conversion Power or Certainty Loss Factor.

  • Conversion ritual. Requires a Moral Guide. An effective conversion ritual reduces certainty by 30%. A masterful conversion ritual instantly converts the user to the desired ideoligion. Poor quality rituals instead increase certainty. The quality of the ritual increases the chance of an effective/masterful ritual; quality is increased by Social Impact of the moral guide, among other factors.
  • Crisis of belief is an extreme mental break which immediately reduces certainty by 50%. If certainty reaches 0%, then the pawn will convert to a random ideoligion - even if you've attempted to convert them to a specific ideoligion prior. Notably, crisis of belief is one of 2 mental breaks that prisoners associated with another faction are able to go through. (Colonists who have been arrested can go through other breaks)
  • A throne speechContent added by the Royalty DLC can convert listeners to the speaker's ideoligion.[Verify]

ChildrenContent added by the Biotech DLC are a unique case of conversion, as babies have no ideoligion and one is assigned to them once they turn 3. For a more detailed description of how the ideoligion of a child is determined, see the Children page.

Structure[edit]

Choosing your structure affects which symbols the game uses for your ideoligion, and allows for the selection of some rituals that would otherwise require specific memes. It also influences some random generation options and flavor text but these can be overridden by player selection.

Styles[edit]

An ideoligion can have 0-3 associated styles. People belonging to that ideoligion will apply those styles when making specific items. Colonists will get thoughts based on the styles of the objects around them, depending on their ideoligion's diversity of thought precept either for having surroundings match or not match their ideoligion. Neutral surroundings produce no thought. If multiple styles of an ideoligion affect the same object, left-most applies. Note that building appearance in the construction menu will be based on your primary ideoligion, but the actual building might be different if built by a pawn of a different ideoligion.

Style dominance[edit]

Pawns consider objects with style dominance within 27 tiles outdoors, or in the same room regardless of distance. An item is considered "uniform" if pawn's ideoligion can build it, and "diverse" otherwise, regardless of the actual style: for example, a totemic table will be considered diverse for an ideoligion with morbid and totemic styles, because the morbid style overrides totemic tables. If the total style dominance of uniform or diverse objects is at least 10 more than the other category, pawns will get an appropriate thought; the actual style of the object does not matter for stacking either: a morbid slab and a totemic slab in the same room will be uniform for an ideoligion with both styles, cancel each other out and give no thought for an ideoligion with one of those styles, and diverse for an ideoligion with neither.

An ideoligion with no styles would still consider its own buildings (such as ideogram), but not ritual seats, to be uniform.

Clothing, whether worn or placed on the ground, and uninstalled objects have no impact on style dominance.

Roles[edit]

General info[edit]

Note: When creating an ideoligion a randomly generated or player specified name is given to the role. For clarity, the wiki uses the generic names of the roles instead as the generated names will not be consistent across playthroughs. Where there are explicit references to the role name, such as in moodlets, the fact that the non-generic name is used will be noted, such as with "<Role Name>".

Some factors are consistent across all roles.

  • Pawns can only hold one role at a time.
  • All roles lose Certainty at 50% the normal rate.
  • Roles can have assigned equipment that they will demand when they have the role - Leaders and Moral Guides will get a permanent −4 "Want <Role Name> apparel" mood debuff without it. Due to a bug, none of the specialist roles will have the mood debuff happen. Only New Tribe colonies can select the war mask and tribal headdress as apparel options, while only New Arrivals colonies can select the slicecap and beret Content added by the Royalty DLC.

Removing a role from a pawn causes a −15 "Lost <Role Name> role" moodlet for 10 days.[Detail Needed] This does not happen when changing from a moral guide to leader.

When at least 3 colonists have the same ideoligion, its moral guide role activates. Slaves, prisoners and quest lodgers do not count toward this three pawn requirement. Activation allows the moral guide role to be assigned, but pawns with that ideology receive −5 "No <Role Name>" when the role is unfilled. This requirement persists, even if follower count diminishes, until there's only 1 pawn of that ideoligion left. There is a short grace period when starting the game before the moodlet is applied.

The leader and moral guide roles are mandatory and cannot be removed, and are each limited to only one bearer of the role. You can have 1 leader across all your colonists, even of different ideoligions. You can have 1 moral guide per ideoligion in your colony, so long as the role is activated.

Between zero and two specialist types may be selected, but any number of pawns can be assigned that role. I.e. you cannot have a shooting specialist, an animals specialist, and a medical specialist, but you can have 20 pawns assigned be shooting specialists. Limits are per ideoligion only - multiple ideoligions in a single colony can allow more access to specialist types.

Leader[edit]

Leader.png

A trial over some heinous accusation. The initiator will accuse someone of terrible wrongdoing and gather people for a trial. Spectators will listen as the accuser and accused argue back and forth, then decide if the accusation is true. If the accused is convicted, you can freely banish, arrest or execute them and nobody will mind. The chance of a conviction depends on the social abilities of the accused and accuser, and the number of spectators. If successful, you are allowed to execute, banish, or arrest a person without social consequences.

Moral guide[edit]

A moral/spiritual leader who heads rituals and personally counsels believers. Moral guides get a 2x multiplier to the efficacy of their Conversion attempts.

Conversion Ritual
ConversionRitual.png

Preach Health
PreachHealth.png
Preach moral strength to a sick or wounded person through the concepts of your ideology. This will improve their rate of wound healing and immunity gain. This person's will to survive was reinforced by a talk with a moral guide of their ideoligion. That moral certainty has improved their healing and immunization gain rates.

Can only be used on pawns with the same Ideoligion as the Moral Guide themselves.

See Reproduction#Quality and Reproduction#Outcomes for detail

Relics[edit]

Relics are objects revered by your ideoligion. To obtain them you need to go through a series of quests. If you take control of them, they give various boni to your colony. When placed in a Reliquary, pilgrims of your ideoligion will visit your colony to pay reverence to the relic. Mood penalty for lost or destroyed

Buildings[edit]

Ideoligions can add special statue-like buildings that will be required when there are 3 or more pawns of the ideoligion in your faction and their expectations reach moderate or higher. These buildings must be placed in a room of at least 25 area, and must not contain beds or workstations. The larger building will also require 4 columns to be in the room. Both buildings may be placed in the same room. Placing the buildings in a room which doesn't meet the requirements will give a "[building name] disrespected" negative moodlet.

Weapon preferences[edit]

Ideoligion can have one or several pairs of noble and despised weapons types. Weapon pairs can't be combined if they overlap.

Wielding a noble weapon grants +3 mood while wielding a despised one grants -5.

Killing any pawn[Verify] with a noble weapon grants +3 mood for 1 day[Thought Template] while using a despised one to attack anything - including objects - grants -5 for 2 days.[Thought Template]

Apparel preferences[edit]

Some kinds[Detail needed] of apparel can be set as preferred. The player can set any of these pieces to be desired for men, women, or both, and can choose between a relaxed and strong desire. Multiple kinds[Cap?] of apparel can be chosen.

Pawns that are wearing all of their desired apparel will gain a small mood bonus of +1 for a relaxed desire, and +2 for a strong desire. There is no difference in the mood bonus for having multiple pieces of desired apparel in the ideology, the bonus is only for wearing all of their desired apparel. Unlike role-specific apparel, there is no mood penalty for not wearing desired apparel.

Pawns that have desired apparel may spawn wearing it. The criteria for this are not fully understood, but pawnkinds that do not spawn with apparel that occupies the coverage and layer of the item preferred by the ideoligion appear to always spawn with the item. If the pawnkind does have conflicting apparel that may, or is required to, spawn, then a portion of those pawnkinds will spawn with the apparel. This can lead to knock-on effects, such as some Empire Cataphracts Content added by the Royalty DLC spawning with hats in place of their helmets Content added by the Royalty DLC making them weaker in combat. Note that this also applies to colonist spawns, including at game start. In any case, it is unknown if this is limited by the apparel value limits imposed on some pawnkinds.

Ideoligions have an ideoligion color. Pawns gain a gain a +1 mood buff if more than 60% of a colonist's apparel is their favorite color or the color of their ideoligion. If their favorite color and their ideoligion's color are the same, they will gain both mood buffs for a total of +2. For a full list of valid apparel color options, see the Dye page.

The color of the ideoligion can be set at generation, while a pawn's favorite color is determined when the pawn is generated.[Children?] Apparel can be dyed at the styling station for one dye per piece of apparel. Note that unlike with preferred apparel, outside of the Man in Black event, pawns will not necessarily spawn wearing color that matches their ideoligion or preferred colors.

Xenotype preferences[edit]

Believers consider this xenotype to hold a higher moral or spiritual status than others. They will be happy if their colony has only preferred xenotypes. However, having any preferred xenotypes means that all other xenotypes are considered disliked and believers will be unhappy living alongside them.

Up to three Xenotypes can be selected as preferred xenotypes, including baseliner and a custom xenotype. If at least one is selected then a positive mood will be generated if every colonist is a preferred type, but a negative scaling mood if even one colonist is not a preferred type.

Believers will not accept becoming a non-preferred xenotype via reimplant ability or xenogerms. If Sanguophage is not a preferred type and at least one other preferred type is set, colonists will refuse Sanguophage xenogerm implantation and quests that award Sanguophage xenogerm will fail to give the reward.[Fail?]

Opinion:

  • Preferred xenotype: +10
  • Disliked xenotype: −30

Mood:

  • All preferred xenotype: +2
  • Some disliked xenotypes: −2
  • Many disliked xenotypes: −3
  • Tons of disliked xenotypes: −4
  • I am disliked xenotype<: −6

Venerated animals[edit]

This animal is considered by believers to hold a special spiritual or moral status, which means it must be venerated and may never be harmed.

— Description

An ideoligion can have up to 18 venerated animals.

Colonists will not hunt or attack venerated animals with ranged weapons (but will attack them in melee), unless the animal is in manhunter mood. They will not slaughter tame venerated animals.

Colonists will butcher venerated animals without any issue, but will refuse to eat their meat or any meal made with it (including meals stacked together), even when starving. They can be manually ordered to eat such food, but will get -8 mood for 5 days. If a colonist that venerates an animal is unconscious, other colonists (of any ideoligion) will not feed them such food, and cannot be manually ordered to do so. Colonists take no issue using leather, wool, milk, or eggs of the venerated animal.

Colonists will get -5 mood for 5 days if a tame venerated animal dies for any reason. Releasing tame animals is fine.

Colonists will get a positive thought for the amount of tame venerated animals in the colony, depending on their total body size divided by the total number of colonists: +2 for 1 or more, +3 for 2 or more, +4 for 4 or more, and +5 for 6 or more. In case of multiple venerated animals, all their body sizes are added together, producing a single thought. All colonists are counted for this, but only those of an appropriate ideoligion will get the thought.

Despite being tameable, Insectoids cannot be selected as a venerated animal.

Venerated animals are twice as easy to tame.

Hair and tattoos[edit]

An ideoligion has associated hairstyles, beards, and tattoos. Specific hairstyles and tattoos may be allowed for men, women, or either. Some of those may be more or less common.

Newly spawned pawns of an ideoligion will always have matching appearance.

If pawn's hairstyle, beard, or tattoo do not match what their ideoligion allows (usually as a result of a conversion), they will try to use styling station on their free time to automatically change their looks, and will have a -??[Value?] mood penalty until they do so. They can also be sent to adjust their appearance manually.
