DevnullMod 1.79 for Space Empires V released
If you, like many others, see the potential in SE5 but are disappointed in the base version, there is a large amount of mods out for this game that greatly improve upon the AI and gameplay of the base version.

One of those mods is one that I've just released a new version of: DevnullMod. This mod greatly improves on the AI, the technology tree, and overall gameplay of SE5 in an attempt to get a faster paced, balanced, and challenging game.

You can download the latest version of the mod at

If you're interested in other mods (which there are many), you can always check out (which is not run by me - it's a fan site dedicated to SE5 and has always been a hub for SE5 mods)

Hey devnullicus. Long time SE 2-5 player here... I just bought the Steam bundle cause it was cheap and I thought it would be nice to have on steam. But I can't figure out where to install mods... Any clues? Thanks! Bill

All steam apps are installed to your steam folder (default is c:\program files\steam I think?). Find that directory on your system. From there, the path to install SE5 mods is <Steam Dir>\steamapps\common\Space Empires V\GameTypes\ Just unzip the mod file in that dir and run the game. When it asks you to start a new game, choose the mod you installed. Should be pretty simple, though since I don't use the default steam dir location, I'm not sure the default path I gave is correct.

Thanks!, I found it: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\SpaceEmpiresV\SE5\GameTypes

works like a charm...

Oops, spoke too soon. Kwok's Balance Mod worked like a charm. But DevNullMod is giving me a floating point error as soon as I try to create a game. i.e. before I even see the sector generation options. Being on Steam, I am obviously up to date (1.79) and I chose your 1.79.0 version. Any thoughts?

Thanks again, Bill

ah, Devnull, it's good to see you active in SE again :) I remember playing your devnullicus mod for SE4 years upon years ago... circa 1999 or 2000. Fond memories there. Glad to see you're developing SE5 also :D

Now, if I could only fix these turn times......... ugh
