Space Combat Expanded - SCX Core

Space Combat Expanded is a modular collection of mods designed to enhance and add flavour to ships and warfare. It does not seek to change Stellaris into a different game but rather builds upon the vanilla experience to add extra depth, fill underutilised niches and provide new gameplay options.

The SCX Core is the central framework that contains all the necessary resources for other modules and provides interconnectivity between them.
All modules are optional and can be mixed and matched according to your preferences. However, please note that certain modules may be incompatible or synergise poorly. In those cases, conflicts and recommendations will be listed in their respective mod descriptions.

Official modules:
  • Carrier Class: Introduces the Carrier, a support class optimised for strike craft deployment. Capable of fielding more and stronger fighters than any other ship.
  • Dreadnought Class: Introduces the Dreadnought, a capital class in between Battleships and Titans. Equipped with a combination of artillery and missiles, it is the natural predator of anything big and heavily armoured.
  • Mass Effect Classes: Adds a bit of Mass Effect flavour to Stellaris by adapting existing ships to the fleet doctrine of Citadel nations. It also simulates the Treaty of Farixen and in the future may include additional gameplay changes.
  • Ship Spacing: Increases the spacing between ships, horizontal as well as vertical, resulting in more three-dimensional space battles.
Third party modules:

Investigating, developing, testing, maintaining and providing support for third party mods takes away from the development time of our own mods. As such, we do NOT accept compatibility requests. We ONLY develop compatibility patches for third party mods that we personally use or otherwise have our own reasons to support.

However, anyone else is welcome to create compatibility patches on our behalf. If you do, please let us know so we can add it to the list.
  • SCX Core modifies the country_types.txt file and as such is incompatible with any mods that do that same. This includes all other mods that add new ship classes to the game.
  • This means that it is NOT campatible with: NSC, RS and ISBS, among others. Even if it was possible, using multiple ship classes mods would be a recipe for imbalance and redundancy, there is no good reason to do that.
  • Additionally, individual modules may have their own conflicts. Please refer to their respective mod descriptions for details.

@Princess Stabbity: In a DD it was said the dev team is taking the month of July off, so it won't be until sometime in August that the patch goes live.

@Torbaz: Yes, the mod is currently only compatible with the live version. Once the beta branch goes live (hopefully soon! It's been in beta for a little while now), we'll update SCX but at the moment we can only support one or the other. I'm sorry for the inconvenience <3

@Geo Late response, but wow thanks! I did notice Glavius is probably the one causing it as I don't think any other mod goes into it. I'll give that one a shot and see if it fixes it. Again, great work! c:

@Axonum: Not that I know of, it annoys me too but I've been unable to figure it out so far.

@estevana1: No. SCX and NSC are incompatible.
estevana1 Jun 16 @ 8:42pm

@The Numi I made a tiny compatibilty patch with Glavius AI. With it, the AI should build the carriers and dreadnoughts under the Glavius AI mod. SCX Classes + Glavius AI comp patch
