Purpose of the mod
The Maternal And Paternal Lines mod adds four new pages to your TNG system: Two pages for individs and two pages for families.
The selected person/family is followed from mother to mother (Maternal Line) or from father to father (Paternal Line) as far back as is possible to trace.
- Individ's tree is displayed including the line's spouse and siblings
- Family's both trees are displayed side-by-side, with spouse but not siblings, making it easy to compare the time-spans for the generations.

In the event of a problem
Changing the default icons/images
The default tab icons and the default images at the Family page are supposed to show a spinning wheel (Maternal) and a sword (Paternal):
They are selected because of the Swedish expressions for those lines (translated): Spinning side and Sword side. The correct English expressions are Distaff side and Spear side: The Flip Side Of Distaff If you don't like the images, I provide you with a set of replacement images:
Open the folder named maternal_paternal_lines, in which you will find the folder replacement_images. If you do this prior to installation of the mod: Move the replacement images out of the replacement_images folder and let them replace the images in the outer folder maternal_paternal_lines. If you do this after installation of the mod: Move the replacement images to the (system root)img/ folder and let them replace the images there.
