Galaxy Sizes - Ultimate (2.3)

Since other mods generate galaxies where the stars are denser at the core than at the edges, but the empires are placed evenly distributed by the game, I decided to create a mod where the distribution of the stars is even.

This has the effect that you can now start a game in the center of the galaxy without 50 passing until you meet the first AI opponent.

Furthermore, many similar mods use outdated files, even though most of them are technically compatible with the current version of the game.

This mod offers the following features:

Elliptical galaxies are generated with stars in their core.
Available sizes are:
250 stars - 4,000 stars (in intervals of 250 stars each)

Spiral galaxies with 2 arms are generated with stars in their core.
Available sizes are:
500 stars - 3,000 stars (in intervals of 250 stars each)

Spiral galaxies with 4 arms are generated with stars in their core.
Available sizes are:
750 stars - 3,000 stars (in intervals of 250 stars each)

Ring-shaped galaxies are generated like elliptical galaxies, but without stars in their core.
Available sizes are:
250 stars - 1,500 stars (in intervals of 250 stars each)

The core of the galaxy is now less bright in order to make central systems and hyperlanes visible.

The maximum number of stars is 4,000, since a higher number of stars cannot be handled by normal PCs in the endgame at the latest.

Namelist-Mods are strongly recommended as this mod does not add more names for the stars! A few examples are:

Cybrxkhan's Assortment of Namelists
Realistic Star Names
Just Star Names
Elite: Dangerous Star Names

Other Mods used in the screenshots:

Quadrant Fixed

Feel free to check out Vibrant Galaxy with the corresponding patch: Vibrant Galaxy - Galaxy Sizes Patch

This mod is Iron-Man compatible, but not achievement-compatible.

Feel free to comment if you have any questions regarding this mod.

@Retrogazer Nice! Thank you :)

@Tinyhare_Hydrogeniv No, they are not.

@𝕰𝖓𝖒𝖊𝖗𝖐𝖆𝖗 More Galaxy Sizes Mod is based on a recent version of the game, thus minor issues may happen (eg much too long hyperlanes between stars) Moreover, the stars are distributed more uniformly in this mod.

@haliyavshick just tested it out - the issue does not appear to come from this mod. Either your PC is not capable handling this mod (a quite strong CPU and enough RAM is required) or your issue is caused by another mod.

Can't use the mod. If it's not vanilla 1000 stars then it's simply crashes.

So I managed to get in year 2420 with a 3000 star galaxy but oh boi it takes 12 minutes to load the save game :resmile:
Most of the times a day takes like 2-5 seconds to process on fastest speed.
This was a horrible idea to start with such a huge galaxy site but damn i got a pretty decent empire:cozypoechris:

Huh, hello. I've made a compatibility patch for those who use !Vibrant Galaxy , it's here:

I wonder how long a NASA supercomputer could run a fully modded Stellaris, with a mega-sized galaxy in this mod

Melt your computer
How does this compare to the More Galaxy Sizes mod?
