Notes
Note that the Child Descendant Indicator Mod must be installed in conjunction with the Family Indicators Mod to display the + sign for children with descendants.


Purpose of the mod

This mod adds

  • a ^ (caret) sign for parents and spouses who have ancestors, and
  • the > (greater than) sign for children who are married but have no descendants.

This mod originally conflicted with the Child Descendant Indicator Mod which changes the > (greater than) sign indicator to a + (plus) sign, as a more intuitive indicator that the child has descendants.

The conflicting code was removed from this mod, but you now must install the Child Descendant Indicator Mod in order to get the + (plus sign) for children with descendants.

Developer

This mod was developed by Jeff Robison.

Conflicts with the Child Descendant Indicator Mod and the Age Calculation Mod were resolved by Ken Roy

Requirements

  • A working TNG installation. The automated installation release was tested at TNG Version 8.0.1.

Visualization of this mod

Without the mod

Without the Family Indicators Mod installed, no > (greater than) sign is displayed for children who have spouses but no descendants, nor is any indication presented that shows the parents or spouses have ancestors.

With the mod

With the Family Indicators Mod and Child Descendant Indicator Mod both installed the > (greater than) sign is displayed for children who have spouses and is changed to a + (plus) sign to indicate the child also has descendants and a ^ (caret) is added to indicate that parents and spouses have ancestors as shown in the image on the right.
