Fallen Empires Expanded v1.4 Mod
A new update is in development:
UPDATE 1.5 development log, please read for more information.
Version 1.4 for Stellaris 1.6 “Adams”
Fallen Empires are ancient, stagnating but extremely powerful empires, fully developed at the start of the game. They serve as late-game adversaries and can be allies or opponents of the end-game crisis, War in Heavens.
– Fallen Empires, Stellaris Wiki
Fallen Empires Expanded improves upon the current state of fallen empires in Stellaris 1.6 “Adams”.
By adding new personalities types and attributes, this mod works to breath more diversity and character into fallen empires. More varieties of fallen empires will spawn along with their unique homewords and ethos-related colonies.
Due to the vast size of galaxies in Stellaris, it may take you a lengthy time to experience what this mod has to offer.
A new save game will be required to experience the best of Fallen Empire Expanded.
◢ Increase max # of Fallen Empires
Unmodded Stellaris can only support up to four fallen empires, even on largest galaxy presets.
Fallen Empires Expanded fixes this issue, overriding the artificial fallen empire limit. You can have up to 10 different fallen empires in one galaxy.
Enough to satisfy the staunchest of masochists.
◢ No Clustered Start
Fallen Empires Expanded is fully integrated with No Clustered Start with new galaxy options to utilize this feature. You can now play with 8+ fallen empires without the worry of being subjected to a galactic ぶっかけ from fallen empires spawned beside you!
No Clustered Start, created by Taw, works by spreading out the placement of empires uniformly throughout the galaxy. This is done through changes the default spawning parameters in Stellaris.
Note: No compatibility issues will arise if both FEE and No Clustered Starts are subscribed.

Are you concerned of a Commonwealth of Man, United Nations of Earth, and now the addition of a fallen human empire breaking your immersion?

There will only be one Sol in your galaxy.

Does not replace vanilla Stellaris files in any way
Does not modify entries or values in vanilla Stellaris files

What is added? – New files added by this mod
What is overridden? – Event IDs overriden by this mod to activate mod-added events
Compatibility with other mods
Fallen Empires Expanded adds new entries on new files rather than overwriting or replacing existing files; that being said, this mod is far more likely to break from conflicts with other mods rather than cause mod conflicts.
This is the unfortunate consequence of some mods that replaces entire files and folders, with complete disregard of overwriting, to make minor edits and changes.
Fallen Empires Expanded will not cause conflicts with other mods; however, other mods may cause problems for this mod.
