AlphaMod: The Utopian Dream For Stellaris
AlphaMod: The Utopian Dream For Stellaris
Tweaking and expanding Utopia for AlphaMod.
Requires AlphaMod 1.7 and Stellaris: Utopia DLC.
World-shapers can construct this around uninhabitable barren, molten and frozen worlds. There are three stages to complete and then the planet is turned into a living, breathing planet, capable of sustaining whatever life-forms you see fit to deposit on it. The planet is guarenteed to have three tasty planet modifiers on it and will not explode violently when a klingon falls off a ledge.
Credit for original design goes to: NHunter. Modified with permission.
Unlocked by having both Voidborne and Master Builders. Built around a molten planet or a world with a large orbital deposit of minerals, this megastructure consists of two habitable rings. The smaller one, the Processing Ring, focuses on mining and processing of minerals to provide the resources for the larger ring, the Engineering Ring. Massive machinery quickly manufactures starships. Both rings can have a spaceport.
Credit for asset work goes to: Nikkle’s RingWorld Cluster
Credit is also due to Terran538 for his work on Planetary Ringworlds.
Auxiliary components and specialised station sections for turning Fortresses into far more powerful Mega-Fortresses. A tier 4 tech only available for research after researching mega-engineering, or immediately researched by having both Master Builders and Galactic Force Projection. See the slideshow for more details. Tech is given at the end of a year in a current save-game if you have both perks already.
Whilst Voidborne will make all the variants available, they can all be alternatively unlocked by a combination of technologies. Except the Advanced Habitat, which is only unlocked with Voidborne.
