No Clustered Starts

This mod spreads empires uniformly throughout the galaxy.

On the Game Details screen, make sure "Empire Placement" is set to "Clusters." This mod functions by changing the cluster mechanic, so it will only work with clustered empire placement enabled. The mod will have no effect if this setting is set to "Random."

This mod also makes the following 2 slight changes:

Allows you to select 0 empires on the Game Details screen à la Singleplayer Mod by oriramikad. You can ignore this if you wish, it only affects the clamping of the slider.

Allows you to select more than the standard number of fallen empires. You can ignore this if you wish, it only affects the clamping of the slider.

The screenshots featured above are almost but not perfectly accurate. In the current version of the mod, empires do not spawn along the outer edge of the galaxy (specifically the outer 20% of the galaxy radius).

This mod is included in supercid87s Stellaris Combo Modpack.

This mod is incuded in Fallen Empires Expanded by Surfacerunner.

I'm having a similar experience to Masterfrog. 1,000 eliptical galaxy, default number of empires, with the mod on I'm having another empire start three or four stars away. Is that normal?

This mod doesn't work for me. Started two games, largest map, 17 and 14 AI empires respectively and I had AI empires just a few systems away. They should be nowhere near me!

Good stuff here! Ty for the mod

Yeah it is Fallen Empires (or some other mod). Instead of Clustered I get Normal. Can't confirm yet if it makes an actual difference( i.e. breaking this mod).

@Labargoth: Potentially. If it helps, this is the menu as it looks to me:

I switched through them and couldn't find it. Might it be that another mods like Fallen Empires, which also changes the game setup screen, breaks it?

@Labargoth: It does work for multiplayer. There is a "Clusters" option for empire placement there, in addition to "Clustered Players."

I assume this does not work in multiplayer right? Because multiplayer has no "Clusters" empire placement option. The closest thing to it would be "Clustered players".
