A Pop job.png Job is where Pop.png Pops work to produce resources on planets. Jobs are divided into different strata, with one higher than the other. Most Jobs are created by Districts and Buildings and thus limited in number.

Pops will automatically fill empty Jobs that they are capable of holding, and will choose the job that will get the most out of their traits based on a weighting system; however, priority can be set towards and away from specific Jobs to ensure they are filled before others. New Pops that are more suitable for a Job than the current Pop holding the Job may take the job from it.

It is possible to force a re-evaluation of jobs by blocking and then re-enabling the jobs.

Job categories[edit | edit source]

Most jobs belong to a job category that is mentioned on certain tooltips and groups it together with other similar jobs. This allows modifiers to apply to multiple job types. Additive modifiers do not apply to sub-categories but multiplicative ones do. For example, Mineral Purification Plants add Minerals from miners +1 Mineral output to Miners. This doesn't apply to just the specific Job miner.png Miner job, but to all jobs in the Miner jobs category, including but not limited to Job miner.png Scrap Miners and Job miner.png Cave Cleaners. Job livestock.png Livestock, Job organic battery.png Grid Amalgamated, and Purge.png purge jobs will benefit from the corresponding building (such as Mineral Purification Plants for lithoid livestock, lithoid processing, or lithoid forced labor), but are not otherwise considered to be e.g. miners for the purpose of modifiers.

Regular empires[edit | edit source]

Regular empires have three strata. If a pop takes a job above its stratum, it will be promoted to the higher stratum. If there are no available jobs of equal or higher stratum, the pop will become unemployed, slowly demoting in stratum and causing Mod pop happiness.png happiness penalties at most levels of living standards.

Ruler jobs[edit | edit source]

For Pop cat ruler.png Ruler jobs, new pops will only take the job from a current pop if the new pop's weight is ×5 higher.

Gestalt Consciousness[edit | edit source]

Gestalt consciousness.png Gestalt Consciousness empires have only two main strata, Pop cat simple drone.png Menial Drones and Pop cat complex drone.png Complex Drones. Unlike individualist empires, drones demote immediately.

Menial Drone jobs[edit | edit source]

Pop cat simple drone.png Menial Drone jobs are generally equivalent to Worker stratum jobs from regular empires.

Special jobs[edit | edit source]

Unemployed[edit | edit source]

Pops that do not have a job, either because none is available or because their stratum is higher than that of available jobs, are Job default.png unemployed. Unemployed pops produce the following and cannot have their output improved by job modifiers:

Purging[edit | edit source]

Pops that have the Job purge.png Undesirables stratum due to being purged produce resources as they decline based on the purge type. All purge types also produce Unity.png +2 unity with the Civic fanatic purifiers.png Fanatic Purifiers civic and Society research +2 society with the Civic devouring swarm.png Devouring Swarm civic; Civic machine terminator.png Determined Exterminator empires receive Unity.png 5~100 unity for each organic pop purged.

Purge Mod pop happiness.png Happiness Output

Extermination −1000%
Forced Labor −1000%
  • Food.png +3 Food

Chemical Processing −1000% Energy.png +6 Energy

Forced Labor, Processing, and Chemical Processing purge types are affected by buildings which increase the base output of those resource types (e.g. Food Processing Centers increase the food output by +2).

Subversive Jobs[edit | edit source]

High crime, deviancy, or unemployment can create planet modifiers that add subversive jobs. Pops will abandon subversive jobs if Pop cat ruler.png Ruler, Pop cat specialist.png Specialist, or Job soldier.png Soldier jobs become available. All subversive jobs have negative output.

Job Output Requirements Description
