December 8, 2022 - Season 7, Episode 1: A New Dawn
Update 6 - Mod Version 7.1.6


  • Removed all restrictions from all combat computers so there shouldn't be any more design/save issues.

  • Restored the AI Combat Computer to the mod (it was removed accidentally in the 3.6 update).

  • Added the AI Compat Computer as an option for the Exploration Cruiser.

  • Fixed numerous issues with NSC2 components, starbase buildings, and starbase modules being 100x too powerful due to the modifier code changes in 3.6. We missed this, but it has been fixed now.

  • Transports have been reset back to vanilla settings (no weapons) and are no longer designable due to the AI using them as combat fleets. We'll try this again in the future when we figure out how to make it work properly.

  • Fixed missing localisation for the Frigate class in the 3D preview screen.




November 29, 2022 - Season 7, Episode 1: A New Dawn
Update 4 - Mod Version 7.1.4
New Save Game is Absolutely Required


  • Mod code updated for Stellaris 3.6 Orion.

  • Due to the 3.6 combat changes, G torpedo slots are now limited to Cruisers, Battlecruisers, Carriers, Dreadnoughts, and the Flagship. The Spitfire Battleship upgrade can also equip a small number of G torpedo slots. Ships that used to have G slots but don't anymore have either had those sections removed or adjusted with different weapons. Ship weapon loadouts may be adjusted more in the future as the community plays with 3.6 and we get a feel for the new changes.

  • Since the new Assault Transports are not able to bombard planets, we have reduced the firepower of them to a more reasonable level. They'll be able to defend themselves against minor threats, but not a major enemy force. They are still designable in the ship designer.

  • Defense Stations and Defense Fortresses have now returned. Both of these stations will use the Platform model, scaled up in size for the higher tiers. Because the platform models weren't designed to hold so many weapon sections, you may see minir graphical glitches as sections overlap each other. There is no way to solve this without removing the stations entirely - everyone will have to make their peace with it.

  • NSC2 Cruise Missiles now have the same effect that vanilla torpedoes have, which is a 100% multiplier for ship size, with their base damage was reduced for balance.

  • Polarized Electron Weapon now has a firing arc of 10 degrees and a minimum range of 50.

  • Electro-Magnetic Flux Cannon/Atomic Photon Flux Cannon now has a range of 40 and will prioritize targets in this order: Corvette, Destroyer, Cruiser, Strike Cruiser.

  • Ambassador of Justice now has a minimum range of 50 and a firing arc of 25 degrees.

  • All Afterburner components have been reset to original vanilla stats.

  • PD strike craft will only engage missiles attacking their mothership. They will not engage other strike craft.

  • Strike Cruiser auras rebalanced. Tier 1 has Emergency FTL Days +10, Disengage Reduction 20%, Evasion penalty removed. Tier 2 has Emergency FTL Days +15, Disengage Reduction 30%, Evasion penalty removed.

  • Fixed some gaps in the Exploration Cruiser and Battlecruiser ship section models for the Reptilians, Arthropoids, Fungoids, and Molluscoids.

  • Made it required for the HQ Station to use the jump drive to leave any solar system. Reduced its windup time.

  • Damage Control component had its Hull Regen reduced to 0.05 and Armor Regen to 0.1 due to combat regen being turned back on by Paradox.

  • Starbase base hitpoints reduced due to combat regen being turned back on by Paradox.

  • All special Corvette sections removed as they are now redundant due to the Frigate class.

  • All NSC2 ship classes now have appropriate roles assigned to them. This should also help the AI design better ships.

  • The Dreadnought, Carrier, Titan, and Flagship now have a built in static -100% Evasion. Using components that reduce evasion on these classes will actually have the opposite effect, so make sure you don't do that.

  • Exploration Cruiers now have a built in Disengagement opportunity +1

  • Replaced the Armament Doctrine to use the new weapon types Paradox added - Kinetic now gives a +10% to Brawler weapons and Gunship Focus gives +10% to Gunship weapons. All of these focuses have had their penalties removed.

  • Fixed the misssing/broken tooltips for the Fleet Doctrines. They each should show what they do now.

  • Black/Blue Sky Doctrine - Starbase Bonus or Penalty increased to 20%

  • Privateer Operations Doctrine - Replaced the Trade bonus with +25% Damage vs Pirates

  • Excellent Crew Doctrine - +250 Starting Ship Experience and +5% Ship Cost

  • Militia Crew Doctrine - +1 Disengage Opportunity

  • AI Crew Doctrine - Ship Energy Upkeep +10% Energy, +10% Naval Capacity

  • Quality Protocol Doctrine - Ship Starting Experience +250, Ship Build Cost +5%, Fleet Projection Influence 0.25

  • Adaptive Protocol Doctrine - Shield/Armor/Hull Regen 0.01
