invasionFleetSizeMult: 1 to 0.3
pointsRequiredForInvasionFleet: 24000 to 75000

specialForcesSizeMult: 1 to 0.3

And the following in diplomacyConfig.json (A few folders in);

eventFrequency: 20 to 45.

This makes faction relationships change gradually, and invasions take longer to set up. When invasions do happen the invaders and defenders are generally evenly matched unless one side can bring its special forces to bear, so territorial changes happen much more slowly (As in more of a vanilla pace, without the boring static feel). In my current playthrough the Hegemony managed to place an ambush for the Persean League's special task force when it was invading Eventide, thus completely destroying it giving them the opening to counter-invade and take over Mairaath. Soon afterwards before the Hegemony could consolidate Mairaath started rebelling. While the Hegemony was busy sending suppression fleets I was busy selling boatloads of marines and heavy weaponry on the black market (presumably going to the rebels) so the rebels eventually won and Mairaath went right back to the Persean League. Unfortunately because of this and a few other things the Hegemony really doesn't like me right now and I'm expecting expeditions on my colony doorstep any day now.

Have you tried this config with "Derelict Empire" start?

That game mode is generally very slow to start. (but incredibly fun late game) And i feel this might just make it even slower to set up.

The only start I've played so far is Spacer (the one where you only start with a kite) in the default core setting.

I have, and it is rather interesting.  Every faction reduced to one or two planets at most and everyone constantly trying to invade "Remnants" - it becomes a complete roll of the dice to see who ends up in the lead by the time all those Remnant worlds finally get claimed, and I enjoy that a lot. 

It certainly beats the entirely predictable path of vanilla, that's for sure (i.e. Tri-Tachyon gets ganged up by everyone and dies in the first five years, then the Hegemony slowly conquers everything and the Luddics are the only survivors because they start spamming colonies across the entire map on day one).

That's why I play with invasions turned off for a more vanilla-style static sector.

Yeah for similar reasons i started doing Derelict Empire also, it is the most interesting of the starting options for me because it is more unpredictable on both what the factions will do and how the core worlds will be assembled.

So will factions ever make pushes into non-core worlds? Are Dusahk and Penelope fair game? What about all those systems in the deep periphery where all the high-threat Remnant killer fleets hang out?

This is my first time seeing the rebellion mechanics despite it being advertised like several patches ago, so i'd like to ask something that i could not find an answer for:

Is there a way to trigger a rebellion? of better yet, a is there a way to trigger a rebellion sponsored by your faction? I figured if i sold a couple of marines, supplies and armaments at the black market it would trigger off after some time, but i think i misinterpreted and those are just for when a rebellion is taking place.

Every time I've seen a rebellion it's right after a foreign faction invades and conquers the planet. So that probably has to happen first I think.

But when a rebellion starts, it is already aligned with a determined faction, isn't it?

Is it possible to disable invasions or, even better, restrict them to planets smaller than size 5?

Basically, is there a way to set up Nexerelin that removes the win conditions and makes it so that the the core systems cant be wiped out? A "Nexerelin Lite", if you will?
exerelin_config.json -> set enableInvasions to false
Note that rebellions, decivilizations and such will still occur.

Yeah, there's no method for the player to deliberately incite a rebellion yet. I'll probably (re-)implement the 'incite rebellion' action for agents at some point, though not necessarily in the release version of 0.9.6.

-- Edit: I managed to find a section of code in Nexerelin\jars\src.zip\sources\ExerelinCore\exerelin\campaign\ColonyManager.java that might affect what I wish to change. Would there be any negative effects to changing line 91 in this file to have more bonus levels on a smoother curve?


You can edit the file, but you'd then have to recompile the mod code, which I don't recommend because it's kind of a pain.
Though I can put the values in the config... there. Put this file in Nexerelin/jars, and add this line to Nexerelin/data/config/settings.json (will crash without it):
Code: json
	"nex_bonusAdminLevels":[0, 10, 25, 50, 80, 120, 200, 300],
(you can change the values or insert new ones as you please)

Seems there's a bug where the "is Nex dev" debug check wasn't working properly (that intel should only display for normal players in devmode). Thanks, fixed.

(And yeah, the fleet name isn't generated till the player gets close to its current location)

Awesome. ;D Is there a new link for the fixed version?
Yep, use the link above

Does the production of goods like Ship Hulls and Marines effect how often and how strong expedition fleets are? The Rimworld Corporation is sending 5 very strong fleets that threaten my main system will all fully-upgraded star forts and 2 high commands despite only having three *** worlds.
