May 14, 2020 - Season 5, Episode 1: Watch The Skies
Update 2 - Mod Version 5.1.3 - New Save Game is Not Required
  • Updated all mod coding to be compatible with Stellaris 2.7. (We don't know if the mod will still continue to work on 2.6, you'll just have to try and see.)
  • Rewrote Drop Pod localisation with new flavor text and added info about them automatically activating when planetary devastation reaches 30%.
  • Added a restriction so that stations won't automatically equip Bombardment components anymore (oops, my bad LOL)
  • Created new mod loading screens.

  • MOD LOAD ORDER: The new Paradox launcher now requires users to manually set the order in which their mods load. The best way to make sure your mods continue to work is to order them in REVERSE alphabetical order. This means that NSC2 should be at the bottom of your mod list, with the only mods under it being those that must overwrite base NSC2 (such as compatibility patches and addons.)

  • If the mod has just been updated, double check your mod load order - the launcher sometimes puts newly updated mods at the TOP of your mod list, messing up the load order and breaking your game.

  • HOW TO RESET NSC2: If your copy of the mod is not working properly, delete this entire folder from your PC: Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\281990\683230077 and then unsubscribe and resubscribe to the mod. Verify that Steam is downloading the mod, and then try to run again. You may have to repeat this step a few times to get it working. This is a common problem with Steam and we cannot fix it from our end.

  • If you're having a problem with the mod that is NOT a bug, the quickest way to get an answer is to join the NSC2 Help channel on the NSC2 Discord here:

The best way to report a bug is to head to our Official Bug Tracker board and post it here:

Once you post a bug report, the NSC2 devs will review it and will post a comment on your report if we need any further information.

Make sure you bookmark this page, as you will be able to keep track of the bug, see its status, and respond to any comments from the dev team.

NOTE: If the dev team requests a response from someone who posted a bug report and they do not get a response, typically the bug will be closed with no action taken.

twobitcoder - Please see the first item under the yellow banner above. There is nothing wrong with our coding. The mod is developed on PCs using 1920x1080 resolution, but we also use the correct mod loading order as well :-)

This mod is really cool and I've played almost an entire game but your UI code is buggy and I'm stuck working around the UI at the Heavy Carrier stage. I'm running 1920x1200. Tried 1920x1080, windowed, borderless window, fullscreen, no difference. In the ship designer, the Utility Icons are not in the right place, stuck under the details at the bottom. Are you developing the mod in 1440p or 4K? I have NSC2 Season 5 (5/14) and UI Overhaul Dynamic (5/21). NSC2 is first mod in list. UIOD is 2nd item. No other mods. I tried playing without the UIOD mod and got pretty far but now the advanced ships are causing design problems.

Hi team, just a query from somebody who isn't great with conflicts and file management etc. I transferred my installed files on steam to an SSD and it seems that the contents for this mod have disappeared in an existing save. My additional mods are all working fine, but it seems that all content associated with this (tech, new ship classes etc) have been removed. Would you know a fix around if possible?

How does this mod interact with custom name lists? Is it just, for example, strike cruisers will pull from the default cruiser list, etc?

Hektor Varvaras {GR} - All mods are achievement incompatible except graphical mods only, like flags or colors. Anything that changes game files will turn off Ironman and achievements.

Kelix Katz - The thousands of characters under the heading "NSC2 Main Mod Features" at the top of the page isn't enough? Sorry, that's the best I can do.
