Modding Discussion What Were Species Subtitles Originally Used For?

    I have been modding new races into the game in the past, and have seen something called subTitle in every .species file.

    When looking at their .species file, I see that all playable species have some sort of element or chemical as their subTitle, and 2 of the nonplayable ones say "Only these people know...". I used to think that they were a shorthand way to the system to tell them apart, but Fenerox and Shadow have the same subTitle...

    I quickly looked up subTitle but could not find anything in the forums or on the wiki.

    What was this originally used for? Does it do anything? Is it still important for the game's function? Am I just blind?

    If any of you know, please share!
