Glitter Tech

Glitter tech adds a number of advanced buildings, items and resources to extend gameplay and difficulty beyond what the game already offers. It is recomended that you start a new world to play the full Glitter Tech experience.

Using existing saves may be unstable and will be lacking the new factions and generated resources across the map.

This mod builds upon the existing information in the game that mentions "glitter worlds". These worlds are presumably very high tech human societies with advanced production, communication and defense technologies. This mod adds a number of factions from those worlds as well as the ability to produce and purchase more advanced items in almost every category, such as:

  • High tech energy weapons and armor
  • Advanced bionic limbs and organs
  • Advanced power generation and storage
  • Advanced research
  • Advanced recipes and resources
  • The ability to manufacture medicine and glitter world medicine
  • Advanced furniture and medical beds
  • Powerful turrets and automatic mortars
  • Wall lights, windows and blast doors
  • Much more planned

These expensive, advanced and sometimes illegal technologies often attract the attention of corporations or Commados from REDACTED. These new factions are extremely difficult and only appear in late game, you will required advanced defenses and strategies to defend your colony against them.

It is recomended that you have some experience playing the vanilla game before using this mod. This mod is intended to be a hardcore experience that will ruin your colonies with a higher frequency then the vanilla game. This is not unbalanced or poor design, it is by design. Do not fight the factions in this mod directly until you have their level of technology.


This mod and my other mods are currently being redesigned into a modular Glittertech pack with many more features and better balance. There is no current ETA for the release because real life but most balancing issues and minor bugs in this version will not be addressed until the redesign is complete. This version will continue to be updated as the game is.

Hey so recently i encountered an issue while trying to make a heat killbox, through a long grind I've gotten enough beta poly to build the walls needed for it but whenever I trap them their they decide they'll take what they can and leave which results in them picking up my beta poly walls and running away with them.
