Civilian Trade For Stellaris
Civilian Trade For Stellaris
Civilian Trade for the Banks update 1.5.1
The mod has basically been completely rewritten and takes advantage of some of the new things added in the Banks update.
The biggest change is civilian trade is entirely based of the presence of pops who are the members of the Prosperity faction.
These citizens must be free and functioning member of your empire to participate in trade.
This is no longer the case and trade is not tied to factions. People correctly pointed out that it was too restrictive as it was, so until I find a better solution it will be like it was before. All you need to get it going is to have more than one planet. There is no event popup as well.
> Trade planets (planets with pop members of the prosperity faction) produce an ‘aura’ that send bonuses to planets within range (based on population size)
> Foreign planets will receive “Foreign trade” which includes a small does of xenophili attraction.
> Various trade auras depending on planetary edicts
> Trade ships spawned from trade planets that run stops to nearby planets
> Trade ships number of stops determined by the size of starting planet
> Trade ships deposit resources directly to the empire upon arrival, along with a reduction in commodity goods for a shot time
> Some planetary edicts can influence theses deposits
> If destroyed by enemies they provide a small amount of resources to the empire who killed them.
I think this version will also be a bit better on frame rate since the number of ships will be slightly lower overall in the galaxy, since each empire will vary more and the ships disappear after they are done with their stops.
There is still a limit on total per empire to keep it from absolutely blowing up.
The trade ships are also regular civilian ships that are part of your empire and appear in the civilian ship outliner. You can direct them a tiny bit but they will instantly go back on course.
With the way it is set up currently you don’t have to do anything, it all runs in the background basically. Decisions you make will affect them but there is no real direct control you put on them.
This also means that it works perfectly with the AI.
Hopes and plans for the future:
> A separate civilian trader faction.
> there are some specific things I’d like a trader faction to want that don’t fit perfectly with the prosperity faction.
> Having the happiness of the faction effect trade ships/bonuses
> Some connection to the unity system
> War Demands
All of these are just English for the moment. Since so much changed basically all the text has changed and I couldn’t keep any of the great translations you guys gave me.
There isn’t a lot of text this time around so translating shouldn’t be too hard. If you want to help I’ll post the localization file in a discussion and you can just post it there.
Important for removing the mod!
Pause the game.
Open the console ” ` ”
type in ” event civtrade.66 ”
Hit enter and all the trade ships should disappear. Then just save a reload.
