Step-by-step tutorial to creating (this) mod: http://tehk.de/gaming/mods/stellaris-a-step-by-step-guide-to-creating-your-first-mod/

###################### PREFACE ######################

This mod is heavily under development and is also thought as an entry point or
template for other new modders to learn from.

I'm no artist at all - so I'm really not good with graphics.

If you have any suggestions or remark, please be friendly, but don't hold back!
The name list is indeed still quite sparse and I'm desperately looking for names :)

#####################################################


This simple mod adds a new pre-defined empire: The Ironborn Dominion, which consists
of human species called the Space Vikings, who set out from their home of Nordheim
to raid the Galaxy!


Basically I wanted to have a "Name List" in the game that contains names from norse
mythology and/or viking history. For this I used stuff like Wikipedia articles as
well as Snorri's Edda and a lot of semi-historic pop culture too (e.g. the series "Vikings").
That said, I tried to use original norse spellings but removed the special characters -
not necessarily because Stellaris can't handle it, but because they're a pain in the♥♥♥♥♥
if you're trying to search your files!

And since I started with this, my first mod ever, I thought, I might also add a new
flag icon (the raven symbol that may be familiar from CK2) and a background story for the
start screen. I also gave them their own government, but at the moment it's just a simple
copy of the military dictatorship with different ruler names.

For me it's just a fun little project, but I thought... hell, let's put it in the workshop
and who knows? I might even get some feedback :D

I am here from your guide. It really helped even though my mod http://steamcommunity.com/id/cat101gaming/myworkshopfiles/?appid=281990 is a totally different style. Thanks!

With the new 1.2 patch, with this mod enabled I get a crash to Desktop just as the game loads to the main menu. Since I haven't seen a comment about this, I was curious if anyone was getting the same issue.

Took a look at your guide, nice work.

I looked into the space pirate event and it seemed fine for me. Also I can't find any mention about the player's government in the localisaiton texts.

Could you be a bit more specific, please? Which text exactly was wrong? Which title? What did the text say? Was it the "Birth of space piracy" event or something else?
Zeromegas May 14, 2016 @ 2:09pm 
I encouter a bug with the introudution of the space pirates, normaly it use what goverment you have, but a mod goverment the window event is stuck.

Haha, no, it's fine, mate. :D
I certainly don't want to keep anyone from creating their mod. Seriously, go ahead and create an awesome mod! You said you had "some really big additions", so you seem to have something in mind that goes beyond this little thing here. I'd appreciate it if you could name this mod as inspiration, though ;)

That said, any suggestion for new names is more than welcome and if I may, I'd very much like to take a look at that name list of yours. There's no need to hurry though - in the end, I can also have a look when your mod's up and ready-

Tehed, I understand, if it's not cool with you, I won't even if you can't make me not do it.

How about I just give you the list I've got so you can merge them? Or merge them and then send you that file?

@BlakeIrons:

Oh yeah, I know... I found planets really hard to come up with (especially since there are also outposts etc. to name). Obviously there are the 9 realms, but after that?

Concerning your re-upload... well, on the one hand, I'd rather not, because this is a fun project and I want to continue developing it on my own and a re-upload feels like I'm giving my baby away. But on the other hand, I can't really stop you, can I? :D

As I wrote in the description, the names are no creation of mine, but come from already existing mythology or historical records. So, sure, no worries. Go ahead and have fun!


@Herr Catsfood:

Thanks a lot. I already have some stuff, I still want to do, e.g. new diplomatic texts and maybe even a really new government. Will be fun

Herr Catsfood May 11, 2016 @ 12:20am 
awesome, keep it going!

Tehed, would you mind if I made some really big additions to this and re-upped it, crediting you?

I've got my own name list, and was going to take some of the norse flag elements from CK2 and re-make them in the more embossed metal style of Stellaris.

You've got a few really great ship names on there, but your planet name list is really lacking.
