Pre-FTL Players mods

Start Stellaris in the early days of space travel, when FTL is merely theoretical and a practical drive system has yet to be concieved, never mind researched and retrofitted. All empires except fallen start with no FTL, only one of three theories and a slower than light drive for colony and science ships. Practical FTL drives must be researched and retrofitted before other ships can leave their starting systems. Theory techs and first drive techs are quite rare.

Exploiting your home system is much more important than in the vanilla game. I recommend the Colonizeable Home System mod so that you can colonize all the worlds in your home system. My co-dev @ined77 prefers The Belt for asteroid colonization a la The Expanse. Colonize Unlimted, Colonization & Terraforming Overhaul or AlphaMod will also expand colonizability, among many other things. One of them is probably necessary to fully enjoy pre-FTL gameplay. Colonize Unlimited is included as part of More Technologies, but be aware that extra techs will delay your access to FTL noticeably.

The All FTL variant makes all drives researchable, with a strong AI preference for its initial choice. The original baseline mod has become an addon that keeps vanilla's FTL approach, where your initial choice of FTL governs your whole game. If you want to play with hyperlanes only, you'll need to run this variant.

Colonize Everything 2.2
Vytvořil Pode

I meant in relation to the suggestion I gave you last November, and I see you fixed the AI not researching FTL, that's great!
Pode  [autor] 28. čvn. 2018 v 8.35 
Not longer than Primitive Players, not yet.
Orthopaktis 27. čvn. 2018 v 22.23 
@Pode did you ever get a chance to look into the possibility of a long-game version of the mod?
Pode  [autor] 24. čvn. 2018 v 19.47 
These, no. My other mod, Primitive Players, tries harder to be a true primitive start. Still needs work, I'm on a BattleTech break and missed the last update.
Entropy 24. čvn. 2018 v 19.15 
Do any of these mods allow the player to experience their own medieval eras and civil war nuclear wars?
Orthopaktis 28. pro. 2017 v 5.19
Scratch what I said earlier, probably won't be back for another week until after New Years. Didn't think this week would be so hectic, hope you're having good holidays though!
Pode  [autor] 25. pro. 2017 v 5.48 
Link? You might be the first stream I watch.
Orthopaktis 25. pro. 2017 v 5.04 
Coolio, just checking in whether or not I should start a new stream game yet or wait if the release is just around the corner. Keep up the good work, I think I'm the only streamer who actually streams the Pre-FTL mod, it's sad more people don't appreciate this.
Pode  [autor] 24. pro. 2017 v 1.10 
Won't be til after the new year, but not forgotten
Orthopaktis 23. pro. 2017 v 22.11 
Any update on that possible long-game Pre-FTL mod?
