Spud Dastardly presents the biggest Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars mod in the galaxy! This mod is massive overhaul of the gameplay experience. The list of changes it makes is far too long to list here. It's like a whole new game! It includes a total rebalance of every aspect of gameplay, new technologies, improved AI, and much more.

The Unofficial Code Patch by WhatIsSol is highly recommended for use with or without this mod! You can get it hereIf you are going to use UCP with 5X, it is necessary to use the 5X UCP Compatibility mod.

Any feedback is welcome, and I'm happy to answer questions about specific changes. The French localization for 3.0 is not available since my translator quit playing MoO. If you enjoy this update, consider donating (link near the top). I put many hours of work into it!

Also check out these related mods:
  • Split Tech Tree is an addon for 5X that re-arranges the entire tech tree into 8 separate branches to make it more like a MoO2 style tech tree. This completely changes the tech tree strategy, so if you want to shake things up with a totally rearranged tech tree, give it a shot!
  • 5X Lite is a lighter version of the 5X mod that includes most of the balance adjustments of 5X but none of the added technologies, tech tree changes, added uber biomes, etc. It's for players who want a more balanced game but one that's closer to the original in terms of its scope. 
  • ALL AI + Extreme circle galaxy + 5X galaxies allows you to play with every race at the same time on 5X galaxies and allows you to use 5X galaxy ages/density settings with potentially every race on an extreme circle galaxy. This mod can be used standalone or with 5X.
  • 5X UCP Compatibility Mod is for players using 5X with WhatIsSol's Unofficial Code Patch. It re-enables the bugged technologies disabled in 3.4 because those bugs are fixed in UCP, and it takes advantage of some modding features added by UCP. I highly recommend using both UCP and this addon!
