You don't need an updated mod to play. And it is probably a better idea to run the .3 patch anyways, as there are some issues with the latest one.

Would it break your game if the colonization module is at the old size? It has been that way until now...


Battlebots are completely broken without the new patch.


And AI ship design without large shipyards are broken with it.

Dear Haree,

Would you mind if I use some elements from your mod for my own humble work? It is briefly described here. Basically, it's a race collection with two goals:
1) Make the game more space opera-ish. generally speaking, more humanoid aliens (though certainly not only such).
2) Introduce Master of Orion races, because somehow it hasn't been done yet (crazy, I know).

What I would like to use:

* Tarapin
* X-Human
* Phaerax
* Ortain
* Keskudon

No changes are planned for these races, though I can't say it's completely impossible.

Why do I want these races in? Because the nicely fit in the biases matrix, as well as other elements (governments for example). Secondly, they are widely known, so it may be more convenient fun for the community. Plus of course they are already made, so I would have more time to focus on other stuff.

If you for any reason disagree, I will respect that and make some other races that fit these niches. But I hope this won't happen. :)

If you do agree, I would also like to steal your Components and Research files, or at least parts of them which are related to your races.

Needless to say, you will be properly credited, with links to DWE and whatever else you wish.

Please respond. :)

It is worth trying though, i can vouch that the issues aren't community wide as i haven't had any of them.

Hey, Haree/Das (and other parties involved), I just wanted to post thanking you for these excellent mods and the hard work that went into them. Making an excellent game even better.

Okay, so what bad things would happen if I apply the mod to the current version of the game on Steam (if any)?

I'm not trying to be picky, but the game is a fair investment of time, and I don't really want to get 5 hours in and discover that something just broke because the mod is not synched. Will the mod work through the entire game in the current version? Will something be materially screwed up because of it? I can live with small nits - I just don't want to discover 5 hours in that I suddenly can't use the diplomacy options or something.

P.S. If it helps, the most recent version on Steam is 1.9.5.4.

Hmmm... If the answer was "I don't watch Japanese cartoons" or something to that effect, I wouldn't say anything.

However, this was a suspiciously specific denial... :D

I have uploaded a patch file to update to the latest version of the game. It is linked in the main thread, and for convenience a link here:

<Removed link for now while fixing bug>


Full package versions will come soon.

No bad things happen, just some of the changes wouldn't have been in effect. This is solved if you download the latest patch file and apply it to your customization directory though.

For info for everyone else, I see no reason why this will cause any issues to old saves. Changes may not affect previous saves though, or may take a while to filter in.

Your continued quick support is very appreciated, especially as I have a couple of days down time. Great mod.

No problem, here is the new version of the patch, checked most things in game without playing a long one and it should be great.

Distant Worlds Extended Universe Patch from any previous version to 1.0.3

What changed with the 1.02/3 update? Is it just Das' UI?

I'm currently uploading the Das UI mod compilation.

The 1.0.3 update changes the starting colonisation module size, updates the Shakturi, and also changes the research amounts gained from labs as per the latest beta update.

Hmm, can't get this to work. I deleted the old Extended folder and replaced it with the new.

DW wouldn't start, the cursor would go busy for a couple seconds then back to normal, with no error.

I removed the new Extended folder and the game started fine. I then quit, restored the folder, and the game still started fine but trying to switch to the Extended theme caused a crash. After that, trying to start DW again refused to work until I removed the Extended folder.

One thing I've noticed.

Generating a new game, my planet always has chromium, polymer, carbon fibre & racial resource (e.g. necros stone).

Is that a bug or rebalance?

Can I ask what is the difference between the old and the latest design templates? I haven't noticed any, but I haven't checked them all.

You're right. Still happens without the mod if I select Humans.

Before I reinstall. Am I missing something here?

Is it just very likely you start with those resources (polymer+chromium+carbon fibre) or do certain races always get them or something?


-- Seems like 9/10 new games my start planet has 4 or 5 resources including polymer/carbon/chromium & race bonus. I've only had the game for a month (restarted to play with 1.03 of this awesome mod)... but I don't remember it being this generous. Am I just seeing a weird result from the RNG?
