Fallen Empires Expanded v1.5


Version 1.5 for Stellaris 1.6 "Adams"
Fallen Empires are ancient, stagnating but extremely powerful empires, fully developed at the start of the game. They serve as late-game adversaries and can be allies or opponents of the end-game crisis, War in Heavens.

- Fallen Empires, Stellaris Wiki[]

Fallen Empires Expanded improves upon the current state of fallen empires in Stellaris 1.6 "Adams".

By adding new personalities types and attributes, this mod works to breath more diversity and character into fallen empires. More varieties of fallen empires will spawn along with their unique homewords and ethos-related colonies.

Due to the vast size of galaxies in Stellaris, it may take you a lengthy time to experience what this mod has to offer.

A new save game will be required to experience the best of Fallen Empire Expanded.

◢ Increase max # of Fallen Empires
    Unmodded Stellaris can only support up to four fallen empires, even on largest galaxy presets.
    Fallen Empires Expanded fixes this issue, overriding the artificial fallen empire limit. You can have up to 8 different fallen empires in one galaxy.
    Enough to satisfy the staunchest of masochists.

◢ No Clustered Start
    Fallen Empires Expanded is fully integrated with No Clustered Start with new galaxy options to utilize this feature. You can now play with 8+ fallen empires without the worry of being subjected to a galactic ぶっかけ from fallen empires spawned beside you!
    No Clustered Start, created by Taw, works by spreading out the placement of empires uniformly throughout the galaxy. This is done through changes the default spawning parameters in Stellaris.
    Note: No compatibility issues will arise if both FEE and No Clustered Starts are subscribed.

◢ New Ethos for Fallen Empire
Additional ethics variants for fallen empires, each with its unique traits.
  • Fanatic Militarists
  • Hive Minds

◢ New Unique Fallen Empires
Prescripted fallen empires with predetermined ethos, species, and/or personalities.
  • Terran Coalition - Earth-based Xenophile Human FE
  • Sol Imperium - Mars-based Alien Xenophobic FE
  • Azalthyn Hive - Hivemind FE

◢ New Subject types of Fallen Empires
The more slaves the merrier.
  • Puppet States - Proxy expansionist empire for fanatic militarist FEs
  • Levy States - Food slave for Hive Minded FEs

◢ New Fallen Empire Homeworlds
Handcrafted homewords for fallen empires, each with its own narrative.
  • Celestial Dynamo - Materialists
  • Eternal Citadel - Xenophobes
  • Ethereal Bastion - Xenophiles
  • Empyral Sanctuary - Spiritualists
  • Earth - Xenophiles
  • Terran Wasteland - Xenophobes
  • Undying Fortress - Militarists
  • Calescent Nest - Hivemind
    Note: All FE Homeworlds can now be chosen as player starting systems.

◢ New Ethos Unique Systems
Special ethos-specific systems with specialties and rewards for those who captures them.
  • Necropolis of the Xenos
  • Antiquarian Tomb
  • Ancient Manufactory
  • Elysian Shrine

◢ New Star Systems for Fallen Empires
Unique celestial formations unlike anything seen in Stellaris
  • Binary Stars - Two stars orbiting one another, each having their own family of planets
  • Brown Dwarfs - A supermassive gas giant with a plethora of orbiting planets
  • Trinary Stars - Three stars; two sharing a barycenter while orbiting the third, larger star

◢ New Conditional Spawn system
    Are you concerned of a Commonwealth of Man, United Nations of Earth, and now the addition of a fallen human empire breaking your immersion?
    Fallen Empire Expanded pre-emptively checks the existence of Earth-based human empires (CoM or UNE) before spawning in a human fallen empire.
    There will only be one Sol in your galaxy.

Fallen Empire Expanded will be continuously updated and supported.

Compatibility with other mods

Fallen Empires Expanded adds new entries on new files rather than overwriting or replacing existing files; that being said, this mod is far more likely to break from conflicts with other mods rather than cause mod conflicts.

This is the unfortunate consequence of some mods that replaces entire files and folders, with complete disregard of overwriting, to make minor edits and changes.

Fallen Empires Expanded will not cause conflicts with other mods; however, other mods may cause problems for this mod.

I can't directly modify this page because Steam so I made a new one! Grab the latest version of Fallen Empires Expanded HERE!

@kerrigan1603 I've not forgotten, it won't be in the version we release that works with 2.1, but the goal was just to get it updated and working first. Once that is up, ill be doing some experimentation with egal/auth FEs :)

@Scarecrow thank you for continuing work on the mod, it's appreciated, this mod combined with Zenith added so much fun to this aspect of the game. @Camdalf it's awesome you started work on it yourself, and that you'll to work with him on this! You guys rock :D
kerrigan1603 Oct 14, 2018 @ 9:24am 
@Scarecrow Glad to hear and i'm sorry to hear your ill, i really do hope you get better. I hope you haven't forgot about my suggestions about an Authoritarian & Egalitarian Fallen Empires.
Scholar of the First Meme Oct 11, 2018 @ 1:54pm 
When this mod does eventually get updated, will the Zenith of Fallen Empires patch get updated as well?
TwoBitSprite Oct 9, 2018 @ 12:36am 
id be happy to, I've actually started on it just in case I had to write my own, only thing I've done so far is get the Militarist FE working and updated to use the new star system, might be easier to help you update this one rather than continue porting it over to my own. Ill get you added!

I haven't had any luck contacting SurfaceRunner either, but it's good news! I'm going to continue to develop this mod for the time being. Sometimes you need a new perspective; my health may not have improved but keeping myself busy does indeed help. But it is also unfair that FEE suffers from a lack of support whilst I am indisposed with illness, so Camdalf? Send me a friend request on Steam - if you are serious about helping I'm happy to bring you on board!

That’s sort of what I figured after commenting. I tried adding him(surfacerunner) just in case, but it says he's not been on in 6 weeks. I also found him on the Stellaris modding discord server, but he hasn’t been on there in about a month as well, sent him a DM there just in case. If I don’t hear anything back, ill likely just write my own mod based on this one to at least bring back the fanatic militarist FE back. I also had a few ideas for how fanatic egal/auth FE could work

I believe he meant he was gonna talk to SurfaceRunner.
TwoBitSprite Oct 7, 2018 @ 6:59am 
wasn’t sure if he was saying he'd talk to SurfaceRunner. or telling us to, regardless, I sent SurfaceRunner a friend request as well just in case
