However, if this little feature is not enough for you or can’t wait for the Free Ruler Designer DLC, there luckily a way to get a Ruler designer feature in the game now via mods. One mod, in particular, is probably your best bet to get all of the functions one would desire from a Ruler Designer feature in the game and this mod is made by a fellow by the name of SarcFa.
In his mod, via an event chain, it will allow you to customize everything from race, skills, traits, sexuality, and more by creating a custom character and assigning them as your designated heir in the game. Once you create your custom character using his mod and clicked through all of the event chains, it will then kill off your current ruler allowing you to effectively start the game as your new custom lord. If this sounds like your kind of mod you can find SarcFa over at it’s Steam workshop page make sure to like it while over their too.
