((( NSC3 - Season 1 )))


May 11, 2024 - Season 1 - Update 9 (Mod Version 1.0.9)
New Save Game is Not Required
  • Fixed a bug where the Nanite swarmer sections were missing.

  • Fixed a bug that was causing the transport ship models for the new shipsets to not show up.

May 8, 2024 - Season 1 - Update 8 (Mod Version 1.0.8)
New Save Game is Not Required
  • Updated the mod for Stellaris 3.12 (A new game is not required if you started your current game AFTER the 3.12 Stellaris update. Games started on 3.11 or earlier will not work with this update.)

  • Added NSC classes to the two new shipsets from the Machine DLC.

  • Added NSC combat tactics slot and NSC special slots to the Offspring ships.

  • Added new icons for ship behaviors, some starbase modules, and some weapons, thanks to our new icon artist Aonova!

  • Updated the descriptions of some Fleet Doctrines to make it clearer what they are modifying.

  • Fixed a vanilla bug where the basic Torpedo Combat Computer did not upgrade to the Advanced computer properly.

  • Added the starbase civilian modules to the NSC Mod Menu so they can be turned on or off.

  • Fixed a text bug where the Harpoon Torpedo was still being referred to as the Harpoon Advanced Cruise Missile.

March 3, 2024 - Season 1 - Update 7 (Mod Version 1.0.7)
New Save Game is Not Required
  • Updated the mod files to Stellaris 3.11.

  • Greatly increased the AI weight for all NSC reactor technologies. The AI should put a priority on researching them now.

  • Significantly increased the number of utility slots on Offspring ships to give them more longevity in combat (per community request).

  • Fixed a bug where two turrets were missing on the Battleship Broadside Core.

  • Changed all "Exploration Cruiser" text to "Explorer" in the localisation files.

  • Fixed a bug where one of the Titan core sections was not displaying its name in the ship designer.

  • Fixed a localisation error that referred to Support Cruisers instead of Support Destroyers.

Zeonlight -You were in the correct spot in country limits. Look for the ship of size limits folder and the nsc file for that, it should be in there if I remember right.

Hello, Is there a way to increase the explorer ship build limit from 10? I checked the ship size file but found no indication and i did not want to touch the country limit files yet in case it breaks something.

Shalltear_Bloodfallen - What do you mean they don't have modules? Do you mean you can't equip them in the ship designer because there are no sections available?

There are some mods that are incompatible with NSC, but I'd need to see your mod list to know if you've got any issues. You're welcome to join the NSC Discord if you want to do some troubleshooting with the community to find the problem.

Hello. I have a problem with the mod. I've been playing Stellaris exclusively with NSC for a long time, but I haven't logged into the game for the last 2-3 months. A few days ago, I decided to play a new game, but I discovered that for some reason, most of the ships added by NSC do not have modules. Is this some kind of problem between the mod and the latest version of the game, or does NSC simply conflict with some other mod?

Any chance this can get a compatibility patch with ACG?

Quote - We don't do anything with Fallen Empires since there are other mods out there that specialize in them.

How do Fallen Empires fare with this mod, especially if you're playing with the "NSC3 Ships Only" preset?

Do they get their own equivalent to Flagships or something?

austin_scott - It would depend on what mods are in that modpack, one or more may not be compatible with NSC.

So I'm trying to use this with Order Prerogative's Ancient Cache of Technologies Modpack Collection. I'm loading at the bottom of the load order and am seeing some NSC stuff, but not others. Anything I can do to fix it?

@william eggemeyer As a ship type, they are removed. Strike Cruiser became Cruiser's ship section. And light carrier now became Destroyer's section.
