May 14, 2020 - Season 5, Episode 1: Watch The Skies
Update 2 - Mod Version 5.1.3 - New Save Game is Not Required
  • Updated all mod coding to be compatible with Stellaris 2.7. (We don't know if the mod will still continue to work on 2.6, you'll just have to try and see.)
  • Rewrote Drop Pod localisation with new flavor text and added info about them automatically activating when planetary devastation reaches 30%.
  • Added a restriction so that stations won't automatically equip Bombardment components anymore (oops, my bad LOL)
  • Created new mod loading screens.

  • MOD LOAD ORDER: The new Paradox launcher now requires users to manually set the order in which their mods load. The best way to make sure your mods continue to work is to order them in REVERSE alphabetical order. This means that NSC2 should be at the bottom of your mod list, with the only mods under it being those that must overwrite base NSC2 (such as compatibility patches and addons.)

  • If the mod has just been updated, double check your mod load order - the launcher sometimes puts newly updated mods at the TOP of your mod list, messing up the load order and breaking your game.

  • HOW TO RESET NSC2: If your copy of the mod is not working properly, delete this entire folder from your PC: Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\281990\683230077 and then unsubscribe and resubscribe to the mod. Verify that Steam is downloading the mod, and then try to run again. You may have to repeat this step a few times to get it working. This is a common problem with Steam and we cannot fix it from our end.

  • If you're having a problem with the mod that is NOT a bug, the best way to get an answer is to join the NSC2 Help channel on the NSC2 Discord here:

To report a bug with the mod, join the Official NSC2 Discord bug channel here:

Once you post a bug report in this channel, a NSC2 developer or fellow community member will respond when they can. Please be patient and do not post bug reports across multiple channels - someone will respond when they are able to do so.

PINNED: Known Compatibility Patches

It doesn't seem like we can upgrade the headquarters despite the arrow indicating we can. It just bugs out and attempts to dock to upgrade over and over. I've tried it with a station in the system and with the Jugg. It won't upgrade with either. Also, it lists the military power as "1" despite having a huge arsenal.

Quick question:
How do you get more slots for flagship? Or is it only 1?

Might be a Bug with the: Exploration Cruiser Hull -
I looks like the Quantum Thrusters may not be increasing speed +30%.

I have a Exploration cruiser with "Impluse Thrusters IV" that moves at a speed of 216.
When i add the quantum thrusters the speed reduced to 215.
Adding 4 made no difference still sits at 215.

There should be compatibility mods for this and AI mods on the workshop
God-princess Celestia Jul 6 @ 2:54pm 
So, I tried google first, and this might be a stupid question.
How is compatability with glaviusAI or starnetAI?
