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. If you enjoy this update, consider donating. 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. 5X Lite shouldn't be used at the same time as the full 5X.
  • ALL AI + 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!

Split tech tree and 5X UCP Compatibility mod are also available as optional files on this mod page, as is the Custom 5X/DSMP Assets package, which includes custom icons for various added features of 5X as well as the custom assets found in the Diverse Specials and Massive Planets mod. Be sure to follow the extra install instructions if you use the Custom 5X Assets package.

Notes on mod load order: If you're using any or all of the mods mentioned above, certain mods need to be loaded after other ones in game in order to work properly. The mod order can be changed in the Mods menu by clicking on the arrows to the left of the mod that appear when you mouse over a mod. I recommend using the following mod order, omitting ones you aren't using as necessary:
  1. 5X - The Ultimate Balance Mod
  2. Unofficial Code Patch
  3. Diverse Specials and Massive Planets*
  4. 5X UCP Compatibility Mod
  5. Split Tech Tree*
  6. All AI + 5X Galaxies
  7. Custom 5X Assets
  8. All other mods

*Note: DSMP and STT are not compatible with each other. Do not attempt to use both at the same time.
