About this mod

Adds additional ascension perk slots, and a repeatable version of the ascension theory tech.
(Current version set to the Stellaris version I have tested it with.)
A 25-perk version is also available. (Less than 25 perks are available in the game at this time.)

Permissions and credits
A 25-perk point version is also available.
(Less than 25 available perks are currently available in the game at this time. 24 is the current maximum available, if I am not mistaken.)

While Stellaris does have full Steam Workshop support and integration, it also has full support for non-workshop mods.
While playing, I became disheartened when I noticed that a lot of the ascension perks were barely more useful than some of the one-shot techs.
(I'm not trying to offend the developers; coming up with ideas is difficult, I know. But, it is also the truth that a lot of the ascension perks aren't exactly "perks" so much as permanent empire-wide modifiers.)
I looked around, and while mods that increase the ascension perk slots exist, they were all on the Steam Workshop.
So, I popped open the Stellaris folder, and made my own.

This mod adds additional ascension perk slots, as well as a repeatable version of the ascension theory technology.
This mod adds 12 additional ascension perk slots, for a total of 20 ascension perk slots. (25 with the optional version.)
The repeatable version of the ascension theory technology that is added is extremely rare, and costs a lot of research.
The tech will appear in the society research options, when it does.
The tech will likely only show up late game, and may never show up for those playing in small through medium galaxies until long after the end of a game, unless tech/tradition cost is reduced greatly.


Place the ascension20.mod file and the ascension20 folder into the following folder:
%userprofile%\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Stellaris\mod
(The correct folder may be in a different location with older, unsupported, operating systems.)

(File and folder are named ascension25.mod and ascension25 for the 25-perk version.)
