Endless Space Mod: PimpMyGalaxy

Postby Xiskio on 24. Jul 2012, 15:10

Latest Version: v2.0

This mod has been developed for Endless Space v1.09.
Use with other versions may cause mayhem! If a new game version is released I will try to update the mod as soon as possible.

Before installing the new version you have to uninstall the old version first!
To uninstall the old version of the mod use the uninstaller that came packed with the download. Alternatively you can use the Steam client. To do so open Steam and go to your "Library" -> right click "Endless Space" -> click "Properties" -> choose tab "Local Files" -> click "Verify Integrity Of Game Cache".


Download & Installation

To host the mod files on a third party website or your website or if you want to use this mod or parts of this mod for your own work you need my written approval first!

Mod Functions

PimpMyGalaxy adds 3 additional galaxy sizes (Enormous, Gigantic and Galactic) and two new galaxy shapes (Barred Spiral and Ring) as well as changes the second green faction color to grey for better distinction.

  • Enormous
    104 star systems scattered in a 128-parsec galaxy (generation time! ~ 1-3 min.)
  • Gigantic
    128 star systems scattered in a 141-parsec galaxy (generation time! ~ 2-5 min.)
  • Galactic
    160 star systems scattered in a 158-parsec galaxy (generation time! ~ 5-10 min.)
Be prepared that first time galaxy generation takes longer with these new bigger galaxies. After that however, I found no slowdowns in the gameplay or when loading a savegame.

The generation times where measured on a computer with a AMD Phenom II X4 945 3 GHz processor. On smaller systems the generation times may be accordingly longer.

The mod supports the languages English, French and German.


Changelog
