Wokeless Wrath 1.5 — Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous

Post by Dunadan »


Image

Introduction

This mod was created for those that wish to see a more traditional representation of a fictional, high fantasy world that is ostensibly supposed to be 'medieval' in terms of culture and technology. In the past, this has been represented in its most common form as being deeply rooted in medieval Europe and its cultures.

In modern times, efforts to increase 'diversity' and 'representation' have meant that certain elements are included in such games that seem out of place and, for some, take away from the realism and immersion of the setting. Furthermore, such elements often appear to be inserted in a token manner that is distasteful to some, merely serving to put a 'check in the box' to meet diversity quotas of one sort or another.

This mod seeks to return the game to a state as it would have been made in a bygone time, with these 'certain elements' altered (or removed) in order to have the setting fit the more traditional paradigm.

It is hoped that this effort does not cause division, but rather allows people to play the game and enjoy it in the manner in which they choose, free of judgement... as all games and mods should be.

Overview

This mod is now implemented in separate modules, making the following changes to the base game of Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous
  1. Anevian: The female character Anevia has been changed to be a male character named Anevian. Character models, dialog, voiceover audio, banter audio, portraits, etc have been modified to reflect this change.
  2. Seelie: The recruitable NPC Seelah has been changed to Seelie, a character with an ethnicity more suited to a medieval European setting. Character models, dialog, voiceover audio, banter audio, portraits, etc have been modified to reflect this change.
  3. Sosiel and Trever: The recruitable NPC Sosiel and the NPC Trever have been changed to be characters with an ethnicity more suited to a medieval European setting. Character models, dialog, and portraits have been modified to reflect these changes.
  4. No Alphabets: All romance options are limited to heterosexual in nature, and other Alphabet-related material has been edited out.
  5. Undiversified: Over 350 NPC textures have been edited to look more ethnically European than vanilla. Also, many hair colours have been changed or toned down to reduce the incidence of 'dangerhair' in the game. Vibrantly coloured hair has been left for some NPCs for which coloured hair makes sense in a fantasy setting, like Aasimar and Tieflings, etc. This module also has a variant entitled 'Undiversified - DangerGnomes' in which (at request) gnomes have also been allowed to keep their dangerhair. In the standard version of 'Undiversified', gnomish hair colours have been toned down.
MOD USERS:
As you play through, please make notes of any other instances you consider 'woke', post them under this thread, and I'll see about adding changes to future versions!

Installation

NOTE: It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED (if not outright required) to START A NEW GAME

NOTE: The installation files used to help automate the installation process are PowerShell scripts. Therefore, as far as I know, this mod is limited to Windows installations only. If someone in the future wants to assist in developing Mac and/or Linux compatibility for the mods, feel free to let me know.

NOTE: This mod currently has no language localization. It is for the English version only.
  1. The mod RARs contain the following:
    1. install_WW_mods.bat (BAT file used to execute PowerShell script PS1 file)
    2. install_WW_mods.ps1 (PowerShell script used to execute installation functions)
    3. 'WW_<modName>.zip' file (mod content files)
    4. 'WW_<modName>_ReadMe.txt' file (mod ReadMe file)
  2. Extract the RAR(s) anywhere on your system. You should have a folder that contains the files listed above.
  3. Before running the BAT file, decide if you are going to download any of the other Wokeless Wrath mods, there being 5 in total:
    1. Wokeless Wrath of the Righteous - Anevian (WW_Anevian)
    2. Wokeless Wrath of the Righteous - Seelie (WW_Seelie)
    3. Wokeless Wrath of the Righteous - Sosiel and Trever (WW_SosielTrever)
    4. Wokeless Wrath of the Righteous - No Alphabets (WW_NoAlphabets)
    5. Wokeless Wrath of the Righteous - Undiversified (WW_Undiversified) OR Undiversified - DangerGnomes (WW_Undiversified_DangerGnomes)
    If you do decide to download other Wokeless Wrath mods, extract their RARs TO THE SAME FOLDER (allowing the 'install_WW_mods.bat' and 'install_WW_mods.ps1' files to be overwritten) so that you end up with a folder containing the following:
    1. install_WW_mods.bat
    2. install_WW_mods.ps1
    3. a copy of each of the Wokeless Wrath ZIP mod archives from the mod RAR files you downloaded (i.e. ANY COMBINATION OF THE FIVE)
    4. a copy of each of the Wokeless Wrath ReadMe documents, depending on what RARs you downloaded and extracted.
  4. The reason for the above step is that the 'install_WW_mods.bat' and 'install_WW_mods.ps1' files were coded in such a way that a single execution of the BAT file will install ALL Wokeless Wrath mod ZIP archives that they find in the same folder as them. It is noted that this step isn't strictly necessary... it's just a time-saving measure. Each mod can also be installed independently by running the 'install_WW_mods.bat' file in the folder with a mod ZIP archive even after other WW mods have been previously installed.
  5. Run the 'install_WW_mods.bat' file and follow the prompts. The files have been generated in such a way that if you select a wrong directory for either the Wrath '<user>\AppData\LocalLow' directory or the 'Main Game Install' directory, the installation won't proceed.
  6. Click through all prompts and window pop-ups, noting the progress and success (or failure) of the installation. The scripts will also generate a LOG file in the folder.
  7. Hopefully all messages indicate success of the mod(s) installation... enjoy!
THERE ARE NO SUSPICIOUS-LOOKING EXEs FOR MAIN GAME FILE PATCHING ANY MORE


Uninstallation
  1. To uninstall the mod, simply follow the following steps:
    1. remove the "WW_<modName>" entry in the "EnabledModifications" line of the 'OwlcatModificationManagerSettings.json'
    2. delete the 'WW_<modName>' folder within the Modifications folder
  2. If the mod you are trying to uninstall had an audio component (WW_Anevian or WW_Seelie), the following additional steps are required:
    1. For 'WW_Anevian'
      1. delete the installed BNK files (Anevian.bnk and AnevSeel.bnk) from the main game 'Wrath_Data/StreamingAssets/Audio/GeneratedSoundBanks/Windows' folder.
      2. if you are removing WW_Anevian but keeping WW_Seelie, you will need to re-install 'WW_Seelie' to ensure that the correct version of AnevSeel.bnk is placed back in the main game audio folder.
      3. Open the Sound.json file in the main game Localization folder and perform a 'Find and Replace' function, searching for all instances of "_Anevian" and replacing them with "" (nothing). This will restore the default Anevia sound files to their vanilla state, but keep any other edits to the Sound.json file (i.e. WW_Seelie edits).
    2. For 'WW_Seelie'

      1. delete the installed BNK files (Seelie.bnk, SeelieBanter.bnk, CMP_Seelie_GVR_ENG.bnk, and AnevSeel.bnk) from the main game 'Wrath_Data/StreamingAssets/Audio/GeneratedSoundBanks/Windows' folder.
      2. if you are removing WW_Seelie but keeping WW_Anevian, you will need to re-install 'WW_Anevian' to ensure that the correct version of AnevSeel.bnk is placed back in the main game audio folder.
      3. Open the Sound.json file in the main game Localization folder and perform a 'Find and Replace' function, searching for all instances of "_Seelie" and replacing them with "" (nothing). This will restore the default Seelah sound files to their vanilla state, but keep any other edits to the Sound.json file (i.e. WW_Anevian edits).

You can remove all the faggots and blacks that you want, but this isn't Golarion. It was a futuristic world that underwent an apocalypse. You can explore the high-tech ruins of the bygone world in the game itself and meet one of the survivors of the previous era.

I've always thought this was a rather stupid take. The only way racially disparate individuals will exist in a non-segregationist society is if the different races only came together from their respective ethnic homelands in recent history. Otherwise, it would only take a few generations before all the people of the society would become homogeneous through intermarriage.

In the case of Golarion, this 'apocalypse' (Earthfall) happened more than 9000 years before the current day in the world lore. Any traces of different races coexisting in advanced civilizations before the downfall would have LONG, LONG ago been wiped out by interbreeding. It's nonsensical to think otherwise.

The only other way racially disparate individuals can be explained rationally in such a world is if the societies are NOT non-segregationist and enclaves of racially similar people were racist towards one another and only bred with other people like them.

Is it even humanly possible to unwoke this game?
I'm not sure :) But I'm willing to give it a try. I'm 100% certain not everything got caught because I have never played through the whole game... I stopped to do the work I've done after the Prologue. I plan to take many notes during a playthrough and will endeavour to make necessary updates as I go. I hope others that play heed my request to post things they find here as well to help compile a list of things to work on.

America's been non-segregationist for 60 years and different races still exist and will continue to exist for quite a while.

South of the border, you have all sorts of castizos and mestizos, they didn't become one race despite all that Spanish/Portuguese breeding.

Well done - now, I haven't gotten to that game in particular yet, but if the changes made in the mod is an indication, I haven't missed much... However, being pretty fresh out of Rogue Trader, Owlcat's latest game, I might give both the game and the mod a try.

Are you seriously trying to equate 60 years and 500 years with over 9000? You're arguing my case for me that this is a stupid take.

Romantic preferences along racial lines are racist by definition. Your issue is that you are stuck in the "muh racism bad" mindset. There's nothing inherently wrong with discrimination or stereotypes.

You're the one who said "it would only take a few generations" After 9000 years, who knows? No reliable data to observe such a thing.

I know that Numenera insisted that everyone be some mixed-race shade of brown and that was met by resistance by one of the devs on Torment: Tides of Numenera.

I see a game that has an obvious setting where having non whites wouldn't make sense. I see a game where devs made up bullshit to shoehorn non whites. I desire a mod that removes such shoehorned elements. I don't see what's there to argue about.

As with the crusades and the reconquista and the golden horde and the Ottoman invasion of Anatolia in the real world, some non-whites make sense, in some areas.
But strangely copious random nativized blacks (and orientals, but let's face it, it's the blacks that are mainly pushed) in all of the medieval white nations DOES NOT make sense.

Why is it blacks? Because they stand out the most, so the self-negating race-worship of the woke white race communist retards (and the race narcissism of the blacks) is at the highest level.

I agree, 1 or 2 ambitious merchants from black nations would make sense. As would middle eastern skin tones. But as with BG3 act 3, pathfinder crowds are almost entirely black. I said this somewhere before, I'm not here for white supremacist story telling but non-woke story telling.

Sosiel was, in my opinion, probably the least obnoxious gay video game character I've ever seen.

The rest of the game is obnoxious in many areas but I just wanted to put this on record.

Also, great job! You clearly went to a LOT of effort designing this mod.

Edit: Wow, the character models are excellent. Are they custom made or did you use the character creator as a jumping off point?

Noted. I only got as far as the Prologue before deciding to make this mod so I haven't had the 'Sosiel experience' yet. As for whether he's obnoxious or not, it's really too bad... this is a perfect example of having too much of something in the name of 'good'. Had Sosiel been a diamond in the rough and well presented as a homosexual character, that'd be great! But my problem is the fact that LGBTQ2SIA+ stuff is so shoehorned and all modern media is so oversaturated with it that I just want ONE THING that doesn't have any of it. Enough is enough. We get it: gay people exist. I don't have a problem with them. But I also don't need to be constantly and forever reminded that they exist in all the media I consume, thanks.
Also, great job! You clearly went to a LOT of effort designing this mod.

Edit: Wow, the character models are excellent. Are they custom made or did you use the character creator as a jumping off point?
No custom models, game puts the models together on a modular basis by default... all I had to do was edit the character files to display different body parts (head, hair etc) and set a different colour to them.

If you're going to play and use this mod... I can't say this enough: PLEASE make note of things missed that should be changed, because there will be A LOT of them. Like I said, I only made it as far as the end of the Prologue before creating this mod, so I'm sure there's a ton of stuff that I missed just because I'm not yet aware of it from not having done a single full playthrough myself.
