Strange Homeworlds (Standalone) - Discontinued :(

What is Strange Homeworlds

Strange Homeworlds is a standalone mod. It takes a few things from my other mod Colonize Unlimited©.


  • Colonize all planet types (including Asteroids)
  • Start out with more planet types (in addition to the 9 usual ones)
    • Harsh Group:
      • Molten
      • Toxic
      • Tomb World
    • Bleak Group:
      • Barren
      • Barren Cold
      • Frozen
    • Artificial Group:
      • AI World
      • Space Habitats
      • Shielded World
    • Others:
      • Gas Giant
      • Asteroid
  • New terraforming links and habitability types (See Terraforming/Planet Groups)
  • Space Habitats can now have their own space ports

Terraforming/Planet Groups
(Needs an update with Artificial planets and Asteroids)

To do list
  • Custom starting text for other planet types
  • Custom events
  • Change some of the wording related to 'uninhabitable planets'

Anything that changes the following:
  • common/planet_classes/00_planet_classes.txt
  • common/solar_system_initializers/empire_initializers.txt
  • common/solar_system_initializers/prescripted_species_systems.txt
  • common/terraform/01_advanced_terraform_links.txt
  • common/terraform/02_special_terraform_links.txt
  • common/terraform/basic_terraform_links.txt
  • common/tile_blockers/00_tile_blockers.txt
  • common/tile_blockers/00_tile_blockers.txt
  • gfx/interface/frontend/
  • interface/customize_species_editors.gui

I might pick it up again if I get some time, but I've not had much time to dedicate to this :(

I just would like to point out this is the only mod out there that manages to change your homeworld TYPE, not the home system itself. This has several uses, not the least of which is creating achievement-compatible machine world starts for machines. If it gets picked back up again, it would be fascinating to see this expanded to hive worlds and ecumenopoli.

In 1.8?

Hey l just discovered your mod is causing a massive problem with the vanilla galaxy generation. The Class M Red Giant will not spawn. A system with nothing but molten planets will spawn like there is a star, but the Class M Red Giant itself is missing, just empty space where the star should be.

@Electronic Warfare: it's all open source:

If l learn how to mod the game better, l'll do what l can to maintain this mod. I really love it and it helps with roleplaying as certain races like a hive mind of vicious bugs that live on a planet considered hellish by most.

Anyone made a update patch yet?

Can only colonize home system worlds. Beyond the home system, barren and similar worlds are missing the colonize button.

Is there anyway to remove the planet habitability icon from the galaxy screen? When every planet is habitable it really slows the game right down.
