Wondrous Planets Update (new with 1.8)
How it works:
At the start of the game, up to one planet of each planet type will be chosen as a wondrous planet. This planet will have a unique tile blocker on it that provides very large adjacency bonuses as well as a happiness bonus! Once you have surveyed and discovered a planet like this (or the AI has), the planet name will change to a different colour and it will have a unique icon.

Discovery! Events
How it works:
When your science ships survey a planet and discover a special modifier on that planet an event will pop up telling you about it. This only happens the first time you discover this modifier.

Colony Events
How it works:
Over 40 mini colony events have been added that can trigger after you have colonised a world with this mod’s modifiers. Several capital event chains to do with your ethic choices have also been added.

Valuable World Modifier
How it works:
Some dead worlds (barren, frozen, etc) that have specific modifiers will also have a 'valuable world' modifier. This modifier allows terraforming of this world with the right technologies.

Terraforming Interaction
How it works:
When you terraform a planet the following will happen:
  • Most bad negative modifiers will be removed (where it makes sense)
  • Precursor modifiers will NOT be removed
  • Planet wonders will be removed.
  • The newly terraformed planet has a chance to roll new flavour or positive modifiers. Flavour modifiers have a grey border and are just there for story/lore or roleplay.
  • Turning a planet into a Machine World will remove most modifiers and roll unique machine world modifiers. Events to replace these will come at a later date.

Crisis Interaction
How it works:
Crisis that purge or change planets will have improved interactions with planet modifiers. They will remove and/or roll new modifiers as well.

Hi Guilliman, you were right on, found that the mod had been disabled, so just had to reactivate it. simplest fixes are the best. THanks so much for making this awesome mod as it really is one of my favorite flavor mods to keep playing stellaris over and over.

This update is fantastic! Great work Guilli :D.

Make them all red, so it tells all the other AI: You are going to die if you poke this
Guilliman  [author] Nov 15 @ 3:51am 
check the localisation wiki, it's at the bottom almost :)

can be buggy when trying from ingame though
Sarus Nov 15 @ 3:45am 
Hm, so when i gained Yuthaan Majoris Precursor, and pressed backspace a second time after the Y of yuthaan, then pressed g and spacebar once or twice and entered other keys, the naming text was now Grey :D i wonder what other possible colors i could find (it still kept that lil precursor building icon in the name :)
Guilliman  [author] Nov 14 @ 11:57pm 
Hello IamSoGangsta, I checked by loading an old save of mine from before the update, the modifiers are still there.

Can you check if the stellaris launcher didnt disable the mod when you start the game? I changed the title of the mod by adding 2.1 behind it. It's possible the launcher did not enable the mod as it thinks it's a new one.

i had a great game going but with the update today all the precursor planet bonuses disapeared. is there a way to make the mod work with existing saves? thanks!
Guilliman  [author] Nov 14 @ 11:53am 
Yes, if you disable the planet rings and their rich resource spot it will -not- remove extra resources from the galaxy. The galaxy resources will be normal then. :)
Joker Nov 14 @ 10:55am 
Great update! In the options I see you have the ability to turn off rich resource ring spawns. I read previously that you had lowered other resource spawning in the galaxy to compensate for rich resource rings, so I was wondering if you turn off rich resource ring spawn does the resource spawn for the rest ofthe galaxy go back to normal? Or do you end up playing in a galaxy with overall less resources?

Mod has been updated! Please let me know if you experience any issues. Quite a few systems were changed. See the changelog :)
