Like how the father mostly determines the sex of the child, with some being more predisposed to having one or the other.

just figure a more "realistic" approach could be interesting from a modding perspective, say being able to make an amazonian faction where the men of will mostly give daughters for the war machine, to counter a spartan faction, etc? ya know, mythology/fantasy stuff; especially allowing twin+ chances to be determined on a per-character level

as well as certain historical examples of succession crisis that happened due to kings only having *many* daughters, regardless of how many wives they went through

i dunno, was just wondering why it was never moved to just be another stat next to fertility? would it just make too many calculations per character somehow or something?
