Hi everyone, this is an upgrade for the Gauntlet's Race Mod 3.0, therefore you MUST have that mod to use this one.
This mod adds
A race image for each custom pic called RaceRobot which can be used to replace a custom races generic robot informant image, thus you can get status reports from your own race pic instead of a robot, all of my custom races have this enabled. You can do this for your via their XML file.
The custom races now have custom home-world's using custom planet images too.
15 Planet Images
4 more custom races (total 18)
5 Race Pics (total 60)
70 logos from many other mods
NOTE: Every attempt was made to contact the authors of these various logos to ask permissions for their use, however due to the nature of the internet and gaming/forums, not everyone is still going to be around to answer their given emails or PMs. I decided to add the logos anyways, and below is the authors full credit! If anyone authored these logos and does not approve of their use please feel free to contact me and I will remove them from this mod. Since these logos are already available from Stardock Central's Library for free and universal use, I don't see much conflict in using them.

Implement All Racial Penalties (Negative Bonuses)
By General Pants
This mod implements negative racial bonuses for all racial abilities, including miniaturization, logistics, home planet quality, interest rates, and all of the exotic worlds colonization abilities. Every ability has been given one or more penalty options, which award bonus points for a reduction in the ability score.
Using this mod, you can make your Ultimate Jellyfish Race, who can't colonize Barren worlds, but can automatically colonize water worlds, and who need extra space in their ships for their watery "atmosphere." Enjoy!
This is a mod of the "Implement all Racial Abilities" mod by me, which was itself a mod of "MrKorx's Miniaturization & Logistics Mod" by MrKorx (with the latter author's permission).
V1.1: Based on player feedback, I have lowered the value of the Colonize Exotic Worlds abilities considerably. I originally set them high because I felt that they would be especially problematic for the AI. Of course, I don't recommend giving the AI these penalties anyway, so that doesn't really make much sense, does it?
V1.2: Fixed minor typo that might or might not have affected play. Thanks to Mongo64 for pointing it out.
V1.21: (unreleased) Updated readme file.
V1.3: corrected minor typo pointed out by nooha.
Extract these to yourfavoritmod/Data... for some reason, the AbilitiesBonus.xml will not work if you put it in Data/English, so please don't do that.
