3.1.x | Xenonion News Enclave

**I have tested this with 3.1.x and have not seen any issues; please do file bug reports if you get a crash with any DLC.**

"Xenonion is an award winning pan-galactic news organization, and Stellaris' most trusted news source - according to four of the five arthropods it nerve stapled.

Founded in 2200 following a questionable merger between several media conglomerates, Xenonion has emerged as the galaxy's largest news provider.

Headquartered aboard the ISS Xenonion deep space black site, the organization broadcasts continuously via a network of mind control satellites, and is currently syndicated in every major space-nation.

The network is known for its high-quality news and space-weather coverage. With bureaus on every major planet, alongside a roving fleet of news Titan-class starships, its journalists are never far from the action."

This mod adds an enclave for the Galaxy's most trusted news source, Xenonion. Currently, the Enclave offers 3 options for agreements you can make with them - this may be expanded or altered in time:

  • Xenonion Premium Subscription - Gives everyone in your empire access to Xenonion's 'Premium' offerings, distracting them from anything else you might be doing.
    - +250 max influence
    - +10% pop happiness
    - -25% diplomatic agreement upkeep
    - +10 base intel on other empires.
    Costs 10% of monthly energy income while active.

  • Xenonion Mind-Control Satellite Rental - As the primer news organization on the Galactic Stage, Xenonion News possesses vast armadas of stealthy orbital mind-control satellites. For the right price, you can rent them.
    - +1 influence a month
    - +150% government ethics attraction
    - -15% branch office cost
    - +250 max influence
    Costs 10% of monthly energy income while active.

  • Xenonion Sponsorship - After you have gained enough favor with them, Xenonion will accept a sponsorship from you, although they will not disclose sponsorships in their work. As a result, the perception of you, your empire, and your actions across the galaxy will greatly be improved.
    - +50 opinion from non-gestalt empires due to influence by Xenonion's arrays of orbital mind control satellites
    - +25 opinion from gestalt empires due to Xenonion's broadcasts
    - +10% diplomatic weight
    - +12.5% trade value
    - +12.5% trust growth
    Costs 20% of monthly energy income while active.

The only trustworthy news source in these dangerous times.

@MaulMachine With this mod, as long as both SpeedDial and it are present anywhere in your load order, there shouldn't be any impact - no files from either mod are overwritten by each other; they interact via events, which can only occur in-game, at which point in time you will already have both mods loaded fully anyways.

What is the optimal load order with SpeedDial?
GreenKeldeo  [author] Jun 18 @ 1:48pm 
Now with support built-in for @MacAwesome's SpeedDial mod ; as long as both mods are present, a button will show allowing you to easily contact the Xenonion News enclave on the fly.

@ValtusIII No, however, it is possible to manually spawn them around a selected planet with the following command in console:
