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.

You are damn right. Definitely mod conflict and many mods (I have 150+), GPM with any galaxy size mod and without other mods works fine and loads just few seconds.
davidb11 Aug 16 @ 12:04pm 
Yeah. That's a mod conflict for certain. Mind you, I don't run multiple thousands of stars galaxies that often any more, but I haven't seen that issue.
H11DN-D4NG3R Aug 16 @ 11:00am 
I think its caused by another mod. or its just you. i have started Alot of 1000 stars(cause lower amounts arent fun.) and i have alot of other mods up.
^kxa Aug 16 @ 11:00am 
1 minute for 1k stars?
Your game either has way to many mods (I have about 100 and it takes at max 3-4 seconds) or your computer is way to slow for these large galaxies.
Mstyaka Aug 16 @ 10:48am 
At 1000 stars mod loads near 1 minute, 1000+ for ages and stuck. Before update 2.1.1 I guess it worked fine, just waited few minutes even at 5000 stars and now doesn't work.
H11DN-D4NG3R Aug 15 @ 9:49am 
day 2+3 might be slow. given it spawns the modifiers.(or attempts to) on Everything that it would logically apply to.
davidb11 Aug 15 @ 9:41am 
That's really weird, this mod should have no conflicts at all, at least nothing major like literallly locking the game up.
I would imagine running it on above 1000 might take awhile to generate the map, and all.
I bet someone could get it to run on a 5000+ star map. But, it would take a while.
Mstyaka Aug 15 @ 8:05am 
Unfortunately, doesn't work with more than 1000 systems for me. After 1000 game stuck at the beginning.

@Valicia did you figure out how to add the visual effect? I would like to know as well

Hey, first I wanted to say I really enjoy your mod, really great work. Recently I came around a bug I think. I got the event where a planet likes to try a different approach to mining which will lead to the planet gainig the "very dense mineral veins" modifier. However, the event pop up says that they wait for my decision, but I couldn't decide as there was only one option to click.
