Its an ok mod. When upgrading to the next stage it suggest that you increase its production by 500 Mineral and 600 Energy Credits but it reducese the production from 2k of each to just that much. And for a 6 Defense platforms, which if you destroy cant come back.

its Extremely op, i think it has to need more tech/perks to be effective for it to get balanced.

Just my two cents: I love the idea here, but it's WAY too powerful. IMO, it would be closer to correct if the "construction site" (the thing you build first) didn't give any bonuses. It should also require Mega Engineering to build the base, I think, or else the torus tech should depend on it or some other late-game tech.

As it stands, it's just a rush to build the first torus and then wipe up the rest of the galaxy as you push further and further ahead of them.

To be fair though, I only know that because I've used this mod for the past few months and love it, other than that one issue! Thanks for the mod!

would be great if the language xml could show in every version the english description. Atm I have a missin _desc error

The idea is great, but the balance is way too OP. the costs are very low and the yields ridiculous. It's no fun to be the the only strong empire and all the others are 'pathetic' in power relation. Hoping the author will balance this properly.

@MasterOfGrey: the one you're talking about is the Orbital Factory, the one that gives 2K+ energy and minerals, I think it was design like that becuase the torus has no armament when that was picked, (All torus modul focuses on production, mimicing a fully orperational orbital factory) if you build the stage 3, production is capped at 25% of the orbital factory and the 75% is of the torus is set for planetary defence. the amount will be reduced to 500+ energy and minerals. So yeah, in short, it was purposely designed like that.

So, since Stage 2 requires the Technology "Titan", I need to have the DLC (Apocalypse?), right?

Are you aware that the mining ring upgrade produces more than the final product? I suspect there's a digit that's not meant to be in the file. Also it's a bit of a let down when the final upgrade produces less resources.

nice mod, but ca. 100 energy and min per month for free is a liitle bit op

@Evilcouchpotato the Ai production... isn't fully tied to their planetary production
