Features

Important

  • Added Defensive Pact diplomatic action that allows you to form a defensive alliance with another empire.
  • Non-Aggression Pact, Migration Treaty, Support Independence and Guarantee Independence are now diplomatic actions instead of trade deals.

  • Federations now vote on wars and new members.
  • Federation members now give 20% of their Navy Capacity to the Federation, which makes up the Federation Navy Capacity.
  • Federation fleets no longer cost maintenance, but cannot exceed the Federation Navy Capacity in size.

  • Abandon Planet: If your policies allow Purging you can force an enemy to abandon a planet, killing all pops on that planet in the process
