The RIG (Rock-Ice-Gas) Mod gives unique components to Rock, Ice, and Gas races, making each race play differently. No extra actions required by the user. Just play the game as normal and your race will have access to the appropriate technology. This is done using the Colony Tech Mod 2's method of automatically selecting colonization techs, so the additional techs are added automatically to each race, without the need to select a racial trait.

Rock races play similarly to stock races and start with a bonus armor component.

Ice races need more minerals and have smaller ships, but start with a bonus ECM component and don't require as many organics and radioactives, and ships have extra combat bonuses.

Gas races use fewer minerals and have larger ships, but Bridge, Life Support, and Crew Quarters components are larger. Gas races start with a bonus shield component.

Note: To research other colonization techs you'll need to research two Theoretical Science techs.

To research Rock colonization if you don't have it, research Construction 1 and Industry 1.

To research Ice colonization if you don't have it, research Physics 3 and Psychology 1.

To research Gas colonization if you don't have it, research Chemistry 2 and Biology 1.

Well, there are no extra graphics or anything. Just text files.
