Introducing the G2G Balance Mod!

Hey everyone!

We'd like to try a new way of testing out balance changes before making them live: releasing them as part of a mod! Mods are easy to activate and deactivate, and they're quick for us to tinker with on our end. Since a balance change is easier to implement than a new feature or a bug fix, and is unlikely to cause issues with the game, we can post these changes out without having to create a new build, which might have issues depending on where we stand in a dev cycle. 

These changes are based on community suggestions. You can give feedback on how they affect gameplay and your experience playing with them, which we can in turn implement into the next iteration of the mod, etc! Considering the XML is easy enough to read, you can also directly make changes to it and submit your suggestion so we can try it out, too, and if it works, see how we can factor it in.

Our Lead Designer Meedoc explains in more detail what this first iteration of the G2G Balance Mod is all about, over in this thread.

Note that there are other avenues to give feedback, such as the dedicated thread on our Games2Gether platform which already has a few answers!

If you're impatient, you can directly head over to the mod's page on the Workshop and check it out:

Just click it

That's it!

About This Game

Endless Space 2 will put you in the fascinating role of a leader guiding a civilization in making its first steps into the cold depths of interstellar space.

You will explore mysterious star systems, discover the secrets of ancient races, develop advanced technologies of unthinkable power, and, of course, encounter new life forms to understand, to court or to conquer.

Your story unfolds in a galaxy that was first colonized by a people known as the Endless, who rose and fell eons ago. All that remains of them are mystical ruins, powerful artifacts, and a mysterious, near-magical substance known as Dust.

EXPLORE the Endless universe

The new Galaxy Generator has been completely overhauled to provide unique star systems and curiosities to explore, different planet types to colonize, luxuries and strategic resources to exploit, the mysteries of the Dust and new lifeforms to master, and a host of strange cosmic anomalies to deal with.

EXPAND beyond the unknown

Claim new systems by establishing outposts, and develop your planets into feared stellar fortresses or fabulous utopias full of wonders. Train your heroes to become fleet admirals, system governors or influential senators to guide your populations and make your galactic civilization thrive.

EXPLOIT every opportunity

Collect Dust, luxuries and strategic resources that are tradable on the marketplace, discover amazing new technologies, and keep one step ahead of the competition through trade corporations and subtle diplomacy.

EXTERMINATE all resistance

Design your ships, build your fleets and carefully choose your battle plans to overcome up to seven opponents in online confrontations. Watch epic real-time space battles unfold, and improve your strategy for your next confrontations.

EXPERIENCE a galactic saga

Discover each civilization’s story, from the Sophon’s AI gone berserk to the traditional Lumeris families facing an ambitious young upstart. Learn more about the origins of the lethal Endless creation called the Cravers. Find out more about the Heretic, a mysterious and powerful character hunted by the Vodyani… The galaxy will belong to the civilization that controls Dust and uncovers its secrets… but were the Endless alone in the galaxy? What is the true origin of Dust? Are the rumors around a mysterious organization called the Academy real?
