((( NSC3 - Season 1 )))


May 11, 2024 - Season 1 - Update 9 (Mod Version 1.0.9)
New Save Game is Not Required
  • Fixed a bug where the Nanite swarmer sections were missing.

  • Fixed a bug that was causing the transport ship models for the new shipsets to not show up.

May 8, 2024 - Season 1 - Update 8 (Mod Version 1.0.8)
New Save Game is Not Required
  • Updated the mod for Stellaris 3.12 (A new game is not required if you started your current game AFTER the 3.12 Stellaris update. Games started on 3.11 or earlier will not work with this update.)

  • Added NSC classes to the two new shipsets from the Machine DLC.

  • Added NSC combat tactics slot and NSC special slots to the Offspring ships.

  • Added new icons for ship behaviors, some starbase modules, and some weapons, thanks to our new icon artist Aonova!

  • Updated the descriptions of some Fleet Doctrines to make it clearer what they are modifying.

  • Fixed a vanilla bug where the basic Torpedo Combat Computer did not upgrade to the Advanced computer properly.

  • Added the starbase civilian modules to the NSC Mod Menu so they can be turned on or off.

  • Fixed a text bug where the Harpoon Torpedo was still being referred to as the Harpoon Advanced Cruise Missile.

March 3, 2024 - Season 1 - Update 7 (Mod Version 1.0.7)
New Save Game is Not Required
  • Updated the mod files to Stellaris 3.11.

  • Greatly increased the AI weight for all NSC reactor technologies. The AI should put a priority on researching them now.

  • Significantly increased the number of utility slots on Offspring ships to give them more longevity in combat (per community request).

  • Fixed a bug where two turrets were missing on the Battleship Broadside Core.

  • Changed all "Exploration Cruiser" text to "Explorer" in the localisation files.

  • Fixed a bug where one of the Titan core sections was not displaying its name in the ship designer.

  • Fixed a localisation error that referred to Support Cruisers instead of Support Destroyers.

grand forges?

Smug Saber - If you’re able to read very simple coding/scripting, then you’d probably be able to see how it works. The files are in the common/section_templates folder, organized by ship class. If you browse the battleship file, you’ll see how it’s organized, and you can open other classes to see how the weapons and utilities are coded.

Are you able to direct me to what needs to be changed in the files at all?
I know it's a pain but would be a big help

Smug Saber - It can be done with some file editing, but we don't have any plans to re-introduce X slots on Battleships in the mod itself.
Smug Saber Jun 11 @ 1:10am 
Hey again quick question;
Is it possible to restore X slot bow for battleships? I play with dreadnought off due to the texture bug with machine shipset (dlc machine ships clip the radiator bits in a glitchy way too) and want to be able to use X slots on the BBs (and the section looks cool visually)

you're right it was due to real space ship scaling mod i accidentally left on, thanks for your help

easte - No, that's not NSC.

HerrWilles - We never did a Nomad origin. We did have the Freebooters Origin that was part of the ModJam contest a few years ago, but the people who created it are no longer on the NSC Dev Team. However, if this is the origin you were talking about, someone else took it over and recreated it here:

Forget it turn out i build Mega then it shuld be Grand :D
Sovjetski Jun 10 @ 4:22pm 
quick question I've researched the Flagship and I've built a grand ship and upgraded it to the last stage, I have all the materials but still I'm not allowed to build? it is grayed out
HerrWilles Jun 10 @ 10:19am 
Just a quick question. I haven't played the game for some time and I remember this mod had a nomad origin. Is that correct, if so why did you remove it? It was my favorite origin, so I'm just asking to comfort my bleeding heart.

Does this mod make the abandoned stations?
