Dynamic Political Events (2.1)

Stellaris lacks life. There are only fleeting moments when one gets a sense of actually leading a stellar empire with real citizens whose opinions matter. Imagine if we (us Humans) suddenly weren’t the only species on our planet – how we get on with the others would soon be one of the big topics. Or if machines produced half our output suddenly, one could imagine it might be difficult to adjust. In Stellaris, this is simply expressed by numbers, if at all. And eventually, Stellaris simply becomes an exercise in blobbing, with your populace becoming more or less irrelevant. This mod seeks to change this by adding a large and growing number of event chains that will bring the politics of your empire to life. Some are positive, many are negative (I find Stellaris to be in need of more challenge), others are more ambiguous. They will make you make decisions, not all of which will be obvious. Storylines include:

• Various events to do with integrating alien species, including tensions between species and your attitude towards interspecies marriages.
• Events focusing on pops’ and factions’ specific demands (e.g. emancipation movements).
• Colonisation Stories – your new colonists on a planet might choose their own leader or how they wish to organise themselves.
• Establish a ruler cult to your emperor.
• Factional Revolts (an extensive chain spanning 15 years).
• Various scandals and Conspiracies.
• Events affecting interstate relations.
• And more (more than 55,000 words of text in total). See the full list of events (spoilers alert) for details.

An aim of this mod is to make your empire’s ethics more important to the game. So, naturally, some events are more likely to happen if you have a certain ethic (or can only come then). Your choices are also determined by them – for instance, many events have a “Kill. Them. All.” option that is only available to certain empires like fanatic purifiers and fanatic authoritarians. I didn’t want to be too restrictive, though – most of the time, any ethic but egalitarian can choose to oppress pops that protest about stuff.

As part of the mod, ethic pulls have been rebalanced a bit. The gist is that now if your empire does well, it is better at keeping control of ethics, but if it doesn’t or its pops are displeased, it does worse (more so than in Vanilla). Also, if groups of pops of the same ethic are present on a planet, it will be harder to get rid of them, so opposition will clump – something which is important for factional revolts (and realistic).

This mod is made to work together with Potent Rebellions 2.0 (same creator :D ). It is highly recommended that you use that mod with this one, as it makes a lot of the events in this mod more likely to come up – and more dangerous (as the name suggests, rebellions are more potent in it!). That said, you can certainly play this mod without it.

You will notice some new event pictures and planet modifiers as part of this mod. We could do with a talented artist on our team, though!

Please report anything that seems weird or is a bug.

-This mod will not conflict or even overlap with any of the other event mods that we know of, including the More Events Mod
-We overwrite 00_ethics. This could create some issues with ethics attraction is you run Petruxa's Cultural Overhaul. Let us know if there are any major problems.
-Factional revolts will not happen with non-Vanilla factions.
-Many of our events elicit reactions from factions. Obviously, this won’t happen for non-Vanilla factions.
-We have no idea what will happen if you run this with STNH.

-Russian - CBeTou, Dalarin
-Portuguese (99%) - Berenoi
-French (70%) - Aven, Mikado
-German (55%) - Caligula Caesar, Morindil, SpaceDundee, Ryan/Cooper
-Chinese - shishic
-Japanese - Mikaduki

All not-yet translated stuff will display in English so as not to break localisations. If anyone wants to help with translations, let us know!


-I have had no events yet.
Assuming you are not playing as a gestalt, bear in mind that the events in this mod are randomly triggered depending on various conditions. It is possible to have many occur or none.

-Savegame compatibility?
Yes, so far as we know.

-Is x event part of this mod?
See the catalogue.

-Are there events for Gestalt Consciousnesses in this mod?
Almost none, they simply have no politics.

-Achievement Compatibility?
No (few mods are).

-Does this AI get these events?
Yes. AI weights have been added so it knows how to navigate them.

The Future:
We have many more event chains in the works. Quality events take time, though, so it will be a gradual effort. If you have any ideas, please propose them!

Also, if you want to help us out in any way (writing events, coding, graphics, translations), or even if you just want to discuss the mod, drop us a message on caligulas_dpe_cabal, here:

Not easily I'm afraid.

Can i trigger these Events myself? Like if i wish to spionage another Empire? Or do i have to wait for the event to pop up?
Caligula Caesar  [author] Nov 6 @ 10:32am 
I don't see why not. But note: You will get none of our events if you manage to become an ascended empire (I played till 2600 without managing that, granted it was a year and a half ago, but I think you will be safe there).
H11DN-D4NG3R Nov 6 @ 5:49am 
@PR3D4TOR it should be compatible. (While i cant really remember if some events trigger after ascension,) it should not break anything
(Ps remove 1 of the comments)

@caligula caesar
Is this compatible with Zenith of the Fallen Empires 2.0?
Thank you!
Caligula Caesar  [author] Nov 3 @ 10:17am 
That's excessive. If you are going to piss off primitives when you have just arisen from being one, you get what you deserve. So just one half before 2230 :)
Peter34 Nov 2 @ 12:06pm 
Halve the Event's fleet size if before 2224, halve it again if before 2218, halve it once more (to 1/8 of base) if before 2212, and halve it once again if before 2206, to 1/16? Would that work?
Caligula Caesar  [author] Nov 2 @ 8:59am 
Fair point there
Muggins Nov 2 @ 3:14am 
Year 2214 - barely out the gate! I can't really complain, what with my empire being barely older than theirs.
Caligula Caesar  [author] Nov 2 @ 2:00am 
I should probably scale it by year. I was going on the basis that if yiu are a decent period into the game then their fleet will be really terrible and will never manage very much (it will be much smaller than yours and have no techs). What year are you at?
