Stellaris: Plantoids Species Pack (2016)

About This Game

Plantoids is the first DLC package for Stellaris, Paradox Development Studio’s science fiction grand strategy game. It is the first Species Pack, introducing a new phenotype for players with original art and animations. As the title implies, Plantoids gives Stellaris fans access to a plant-like species that has gained sentience and begun to spread its tendrils across the galaxy, planting the roots of new civilizations on new planets.

At galaxy generation species are divided into parent and sub-species.

A parent species is the first spawned species of its kind (a kind is defined by its portrait). All further species with the same portrait, but with differing name/traits is considered a sub-species of it within the game. A new sub-species created by an existing sub-species will simply appear as another sub-species alongside it within the parent species.

Species within the same phenotype group will be friendlier towards each other with the effect increasing if they are sub-species within the same species family. This, in turn, can affect other relation modifiers.

Plantoids includes:

  • Fifteen new species portraits
  • New templates for plantoid civilian and military ships
  • New cityscape art.
