Hi!

I was thinking about modding a few new Government types into the game, and for that I'd need your help.

So far I can't even find the file where the original Governments are defined.

My goal is to create one government that gives you some mining bonus and some happines penalty, and one thats very good but needs a certain technology to be initialized.

Any tips for a modding apprentice in this game?

beste grüße!

Pretty sure it's not currently possible to alter governments

I think it is odd that you can create an entire new race but not a government. Is there some technical reason new governments can' be modded in?

That's not the only weird decision regarding mods. You can create a race, but you cannot edit help files? I never understood this...

It is just a tad bit annoying that you cannot modify governments, such as Republic and Democracy. It's automatically assumed that these are both capitalist government styles but what about their social counterparts? I would like to be able to run a Socialist Republic.

You can modify governments in the next Expansion.

Actually, Corporate Nationalism is supposed to be space commies, so they are already in.

Modding-wise, it pretty much allows a complete overhaul of the game universe. You can make your own tech trees, resources, components, government types, create your own galaxy map including special locations, write your own storyline including creating triggered events similar to what we have in the official storylines. -Erik Rutins (Matrix Games’ Director of Product Development)
