Permissions and credits
  • Mandarin
This updates starmap and leveled hostile human NPC lists to regionally belong to the main Starfield factions.

NOTE: This is an ever-evolving mod additional factions and regions will be added over time.

Venworks Discord Community

I've created a new discord community (Venworks Discord Community) for all my mods, modding research, mod support. I'll continue to post my mods here but notifications and usage of the bugs and comments has become harder or flat do not work with recent Nexus updates. So for discussion and reporting of bugs please use the Venworks Discord.

Current Factions
  • Crimson Fleet
  • Ecliptic
  • Freestar Collective (Militia and Rangers - Coming Soon BGS didn't implement them)
  • Grind Terra Industries (If installed and you install the optional patch)
  • Starborn
  • The First
  • United Colonies (Coming Soon)
  • Robots (Coming Soon)
  • Clones (Coming Soon)

  • All current combat factions are used and given home planets and regions of the universe

Planned Features
  • Faction icons and representation on the starmap
  • Additional factions (Robots, Clones, and Freestar)
  • Actual outposts/settlements for the factions that don't already have them (Needs CK2)
  • Being able to join a faction and open additional faction quests

Linked below are the notes and descriptions of the changes for factions.

This mod will be incompatible with any mod that modifies PCM, Faction, and Leveled Human Hostile leveled lists. The mods will need patch files in order to make them compatible with each other and using them together will break both sets of mods to varying degrees and is strongly recommended against. Please see the option files section for any available patches.

Known Incompatible
As I can't get them to load without a CTD, I can't make patches for them. Also using them without patches will break various part fo my mods and theirs and is highly discouraged.

  • POI Faction Diversity
  • POI Faction Diversity - New Factions
