Condition causers are structures that create a variety of effects on a given map tile or on the world map at large. They are generally associated with either Events, Quest or a Mechanoid cluster where they serve as both a threat and a call to action. The player must endure their effect until they are destroyed. In this way they are similar to psychic ships.
If the player can endure their effects, they can be left alone however some quests may require them to be killed with a timelimit and some progressively get worse.
They can spawn on the map with the players colony, or in a settlement on the world map that must be caravaned to. In either case they will usually be guarded.

People of that gender will be disturbed by the effect, reducing their mood and possibly driving them insane. The effect is modulated by an individuals psychic sensitivity.||Creates a gender specific Psychic Drone||6x6|
|Toxic Spewer||450||An ultratech weapon of mass destruction designed for area denial. This device harvests available compounds and converts them into self-reproducing poisons. By spewing these into the atmosphere, it can poison a whole region of the planet.||Causes toxic fallout across the map and a radius of 3 hexes on the world map.||6x5|
|Smoke Spewer||450||An ultratech weapon of mass destruction designed for area denial. By harvesting available compounds and converting them into self-reproducing opaque molecules, it can spew enough smoke to block the sun in a whole region of the planet.||Prevents sunlight shining through during day. Affects the worldmap with a radius of 10.||6x5|
|Sun Blocker||450||An ultratech machine that generates a sheet of exotic fields at high altitude, turning the sky opaque and blocking the sun.||Blocks the sun akin to an eclipse. Affects the worldmap by 10 hexes.||4x6|
