This article may contain outdated information that is inaccurate for the current version of the game. It was last updated for 1.9.

This article is for the PC version of Stellaris only.
Traditions tab.

Traditions are abilities or bonuses unlocked with the Unity.png unity resource. Traditions help define an empire by allowing the adoption of traditions trees that suit their particular play-style. Completing a tree allows the empire to pick an ascension perk to further enhance themselves, with certain ascension perks even paving the way into one of three available ascension paths.

Properties

Each empire has access to 7 tradition trees. Each tradition tree consists of the following:

  • Adoption effect: This bonus is acquired by adopting the tradition tree.
  • Tradition set: A total of 5 traditions from the tree unlocking new abilities or bonuses.
  • Completion effect: This bonus is acquired upon adopting all of the traditions within a single tree. In addition, an Ap slot available.png ascension perk slot becomes available.

Tradition swap

Some empires have little use of Diplomacy, Domination or Harmony. For such empires these three tradition trees are swapped with special trees that better fit their playstyle. While the authorities and civics that cause tradition swapping are permanent from the start of the game, an exception is Civic inwards perfection.png Inwards Perfection. If an empire reforms its government to add or remove this civic then the tradition trees will be swapped and traditions that replace an already unlocked tradition will start unlocked.

Traditions swaps range from narrative-only changes to the tradition name and flavor text to a full replacement of the bonus effect as well.

Cost

The cost of unlocking a tradition depends on the size of your empire, as well as how internally stable it is. Unhappy factions, minority species and slaves all increase the cost of adoption traditions further, though these effects can be offset or even cancelled out entirely by adopting the right traditions for the empire. Overall, small harmonious empires will unlock traditions more quickly than large, expansionist ones.

Tradition cost is formulated as follows:

where population factor[1] is further broken down as the amount of each pop type (with applied multiplier):

Example

An empire has 10 pops with break-down of: 4 main species, 2 main species slaves, 2 xeno slaves and 2 robots - of which one is sapient. Additionally, the empire has colonized one planet and unlocked a tree and one tradition.

Notes:

  • Adopting and completing a tree increases the unlocked traditions factor (each by an additional 1).
  • The empire's capital is not counted towards the total owned colonies.
  • Synthetic empires regard sapient robots as regular pops.

Ascension

Finishing a tradition tree unlocks an ascension perk slot. Ascension perks often favor either a tall or wide gameplay, with some that allow access to gameplay mechanics not available through Traditions alone. This includes 3 "Ascension paths", the ability to build Megastructures in space and similarly powerful effects.

The three ascension paths are mutually exclusive, which implies that empires cannot eventually acquire psionic mutant cyborgs. On the other hand, each ascension path can still acquire the ability to build megastructures - this can only be achieved in the end-game due to the sheer amount of unity required to complete at least 5 tradition trees, or 4 plus Tech ascension theory.png Ascension Theory. The rare tech requirement may also be difficult to find if players do not utilise additional research alternatives. For example, with careful planning of research and traditions players can potentially unlock Voidborne -> Ascension Path 1 -> Master Builders -> Ascension Path 2 -> Circle of life to efficiently create Ring-worlds without delaying their transcendence significantly.

Due to the difficulty of unlocking an ascension perk slot, it is prudent to delay making a choice, especially if the perk you want to choose cannot be selected as you are lacking the appropriate research technology.

Ascension paths

See also: Traits#Ascendancy traits

There are three ascension paths: the biological path, the psionic path and the synthetic path. Each path consists of an 'entrance' perk and a 'completion' perk. The paths are mutually exclusive as each 'entrance' perk requires that the other two were not taken. Auth hive mind.png Hive mind empires can only follow the biological ascension path.


Biological

The biological ascension path focuses on mastery of DNA and evolution and Genetics. The first step, Ap engineered evolution.png Engineered Evolution requires the Tech gene tailoring.png Gene Tailoring technology and grants a major reduction to the cost and time required to genetically modify species. It also gives you +2 Trait Points and unlocks the ability to research the Tech gene seed purification.png Gene Seed Purification technology which is otherwise unavailable (it can still be researched as normal for those who do not have the Utopia expansion).

The next step Ap evolutionary mastery.png Evolutionary Mastery requires the Tech gene expressions.png Targeted Gene Expressions technology. It grants an additional +3 Trait Points, a further reduction in time required and cost of genetic modifications, and unlocks the ability to research the Tech genetic resequencing.png Genetic Resequencing technology. The Technology allows freely removing of positive traits and adding negative traits during template creation. That allows freely reworking the species, possibly multiple times in sucession.


Psionic

See also: Shroud events

The psionic ascension path focuses on the unlocking of the psionic potential of a species. It also allows access to the Shroud and special interaction with certain Crisis. Accessing this path requires the Tech psionic theory.png Psionic Theory. It also grants considerable Spiritualist Ethics attraction within the empire.

Mind over Matter

All pops of the primary species are given the Trait psionic species.png Latent Psionics species trait. This trait grants +5% Reasearch and Energy income to pops. While other empires are informed, this change does not propagate into them. It also break species identity, resulting in a new main species that is the source of all further Pop templates.

Psionic Ascension has a relevant impact on Leaders: New Leaders have a 20% Chance to gain the leader class appropirate Psionic Trait. On a MTTH of 220 months a existing leader might be revealed as Psionic. The traits are identical to the one gained from full ascension.

It furthermore unlocks the Building hab laboratory module.png Psi Corps Building and allows the research of Tech telepathy.png Telepathy technology, which allows Army psionic.png Psionic Army and also is required for the transcendence perk.


Transcendence

This is where the real power of this path lies. It has several effects:

  1. It gives all Primary Species pops with Trait psionic species.png Latent Psionics the Psionics.png Psionics trait instead. This gives +5% happiness, +10% Physics/Engineering/Society output, +10% energy output. Again this will break Species Identity.
  2. All Pool and recruited leaders of the species that lack it, gain the appropirate
    1. Rulers get +10% Government Ethics Attraction, +0.5 Influence
    2. Governors get -15% unrest and +10% unity output
    3. Scientists get +10% research speed and +25% survey speed
    4. Admirals get +10% weapon damage and +15% evasion
    5. Generals get +15% morale and +15% morale on attack
    6. A special version is the "Chosen One" Trait. It grants a bonus that stacks with the normal Psionic trait and makes the leader immune to death by aging.
  3. Other species in the empire can awaken Psionically too. This process goes over latent to full psionic and affects only one species at a time. At each step the containing empire is asked if they want to allow this. This change does propagate into other empires.
  4. Finally it gives access to The Shroud, a unique endgame content.

Synthetic

The third ascension path focuses upon the union between biological and synthetic lifeforms. The Synthetics ascension pathway involves a two-step conversion of pops in the empire, first from baseline to cyborgs, and then from cyborgs to full synthetics. It causes very strong Materialist Ethics Attraction

Baseline to Cyborg:

Upon the acquisition of the Ascension Perk "The Flesh is Weak", a special Project costing Engineering Research Engineering Research is created. The cost is 1000 + 100 per pop. The population count might include Robot pops, despite not affecting them. Upon completion all current pops are turned into Cyborg versions of themselves. This modification breaks species identity. All armies created from them will have their Species updated and receive the strength bonus from Cybernetics.

All current and pool leaders have the Cybernetic Trait added, with the sole exception of Curator Scientists and Synthetic Leaders.

Should pops without the trait appear in the Empire (either by conquest, migration or uplifting), the Cybernetic Trait can be added by choosing the Assimilation Citizenship option in the species rights menu.

Cyborg to Synthetics:

Upon acquiring the Ascension Perk "Synthetic Evolution", a special project costing Engineering Research Engineering Research is created. The cost is 1000 + 200 per pop. The population count includes non-viable pops (see below).

Upon completion, a new Species will be created that is distinct from - but shares all the Traits of - buildable Synthetics. This new species is set as new Primary species. The new Robotic species is created with no traits, but is succeptible to robomodding. The player is prompted for a name and appearance for that new species. All Pops that are Trait cybernetic.png Cybernetic are turned into that new Robot Species. If the pops worked a Farm, that Farm is turned into an equal level Power Plant. Every army whose species has the Trait cybernetic.png Cybernetic trait is turned into an Android assault army (even if the original army was defensive). Every alreyd recruited and every pool leader of those species will have their Portrait and species changed to the new species. Finally, some Diplomatic notifications will be sent to all players and a Spiritualist AI Empire will contact and briefly chastise the ascended player for the "suicide" of their species. As this species is the primary species, it is except from the AI and Robot Rights.

If a new species is accepted into the empire, either through migration or uplifting, the possess for converting them into Synthetics is the same converting a pop into a Cyborg with the same limitations. A pop does not have to be converted from its base to a Cyborg before it can be turned into a Synthetic, and choosing this perk will actually disable your ability to convert any species to Cyborgs. All new pops converted into Synthetics will be of the primary species, and will henceforth be counted as that species for the purposes of any Xenophobe/Xenophile effects, unity gain, etc.

Technological Ascension and Species/Ethics:

All Empires except Materialist and Spiritualist Empires will gain a permanent -20 "Abandoned Organic Origins" relationship penalty if the player changes their species to full Synthetics. All Spiritualist Empires will gain a permanent -20 "Wicked Cyborg" relationship penalty if the Ruler has the Cyborg Trait, replaced with a permanent -40 "Soulless Machines" if the player ascends to full Synthetics. Only Materialist Empires receive no relationship penalty.

With normally-built Synthetic pops and other uploaded species there are some oddities that can occur:

  • The AI Right and Robot worker Policies are removed, making them stuck on whatever setting they were before
  • Each Technological Ascension will create a separate "Uploaded Synth" species. However the overrides for Robot pops should prevent Xenophobia from having any effect between those species.

Cyborg & Psionic

To a large degree, Psionic and Synthethic Ascension are mutually exclusive. Mechanical and Cybernetic Pops can not awaken as Psionic for being in a Transcended empire. Turning into fully Synthethic pops will naturally remove the Psionic trait. However Psionic pops can turned into Cyborgs.


Taking the Ap the flesh is weak.png The Flesh is Weak ascension perk will prevent Machine Uprisings even if your species are only cyborgs and your robots enslaved.
