Summary0009151: Outsiders no longer exist, worlds unplayable if no civilizations generated
DescriptionThe new tweaks to entities are interesting, but it had the unfortunate effect of removing the pre-existing outsider entity token. Given the expansions to civilizations, this is normally a good thing.

However, this token still retained a use. If a world is intentionally created (like say, the classic monster island worldgen), it used to be that you could still play as an outsider and thus explore. Not so anymore.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a world using custom settings.
2. Specify 0 as the number of civilizations, and set "playable civilization required" to no.
3. Start that world and enjoy skipping straight to legends mode.

Well. I rather quickly found an inexplicable workaround for this.

If you add the standard adventure-playable [ALL_MAIN_POPS_CONTROLLABLE] token to a [LAYER_LINKED] entity (like the subterranean animal peoples), a HUMAN outsider option will be retained even on a world with no civilizations generated.

Which would be one of those sheer WTF fixes that I didn't expect. Leave it to me to find the weird bugs only once I start modding. ;w;

Technically needs a rename, as I'd derped up and hadn't noticed that outsiders still exist. The "no more Monster Islands" thing is still a...well, thing. :V
