Legendary Worlds 2.3

Legendary Worlds

This mods adds special planets (legendary worlds) by giving them a planet modifier. Most of them will have a huge buff on certain areas. Planets on vanilla are mostly the same and this feels boring. So this mod adds a planet variety and diversity in a special way, not completely overhauling everything. It can change a lot of balance, but it still does not feel game-breaking. If you find two extra good vanilla worlds of your type in early that can be quite unbalanced too. The chances are very small, but if you are lucky and find a legendary world next to your homeworld it makes you a lucky one. Since 2.2 update, all major bonus legendary modifiers are balanced in a way you will enjoy them if you find them early or near your homeworld, but it will take a lot of efforts to fully unlock their capabilities. This is the mostly big Change within the 2.2. update.

Also there are three "different" world classes:

Common and Uncommon Legendaries

There is a set of three rather common legendary planets and a lot more that occur more often (about 1 of 20 planets). One for each climate: Ocean, Continental and Tropical worlds can get a food bonus, cold weather planets can get a mineral bonus and hot climate planets can get a energy bonus. So every empire will get a unique bonus once colonized enough worlds of their type. These are rather minor buffs, compared to other legendaries.

Rare Legendaries

There are lot of very powerful modifiers, that most planets can get on random. They are really rare, and in a small galaxy you might have only 1 or 2 of this kind in the whole game. So if you play several games, you will find a new legendary from time to time. Here legendary buffs are quite decent and very unique, but most of it will only shine from the mid-game on. So if you find one these in the early game, you will find it very hard to use them unless you got more advanced technology or generally more income to make a expense for getting a colony up here.

True Legendaries

True legendary Worlds are the rarest of all Worlds. It could happen that there will be not even a single planet within the whole Galaxy. This can happen even on 1000 stars Maps, but its more unlikely. Their bonuses are mighty ones, for which Empires will fight to death. Find them and ensure them for your empire!

Ancients and Buildings

This mod adds a fallen precursor race, called ancients (very creative, i know). You can find buildings from them randomly on any world (doesn't have to a legendary world). If you are more lucky you can even find a whole ancient colony with more special ancients buildings. Rumors say that there can also spawn an ancient homeworld from time to time.
All other new buildings added within this mod belong to a special legendary, so they can only be built on those worlds. That's because i dont want to add more "everywhere buildable" buildings to the game, as they are more than plenty on the workshop.

  • 30 new legendary modifier
  • 19 new special Buildings
  • 8 new specialst jobs
  • 5 new survey events
  • 3 new technologies
  • 3 new mini Events
  • a lot of unique planet tiles


Compatible with all DLC.
DLCs not required.
Language files for every language included. (all texts english only)

No vanilla files were harmed during the modding process. Should be fully compatible with almost any mod.
However there can only be ONE file in the game for borders of planet modifiers. Any mod which alters this file, will consult in small graphic bug (you wont see the legendary borders around a planetary modifier).

  • Full compatibility with Planetary Diversity

    Have Fun finding all legendaries :)

    I have tested every legendary ingame, they all did their job working. But i am no modding expert, so please feel free to report any bugs/strange behaviors as they occur, and i will see what i can do.

    Spawn frequency has really a lot of random modifiers and are also dependend on spawned planet classes. Different games may have different spawn rates of legendaries.

    • V2.4:
      Minor balancing changes regarding Timeshifted Planets.
      Increased Bonus for Basic Legendary Mining Planets.

    • V2.3:
      Added some new Modifiers as well a huge balance update.
      (Detailed description lost to the imba-gay-new-♥♥♥♥-game launcher)

    Be aware that legendary modifiers will only spawn at game start (some days afterwards). You can safley add this mod to a savegame, but you can get only legedaries from terraforming or megastructures. Not going to change that!

@BalanceTheGame Hello. I updated your mod and added further compatibility with recent PD releases, and have been using it merged with my own mod featuring megastructures and events and QoL things. Any chance i get your permission to use the updated code/assets if i publish my mod? Thanks for your work
