Overview Edit

Custom Factions allow the player to design a Faction with its own Traits, Affinity, and Backstory.

Affinity Edit

Amoeba:

Home World: Ocean

Affinity:

  • Starts the game with the entire map revealed;
  • Wormholes, Warps, Home Planets and Systems are revealed.

Technologies: Amoeba Faction Technologies


Automatons:

Home World: Jungle

Affinity:

  • +1 Over Production to Stack Factor on System.
  • +5% Interest for Stacked 16px-industry on System.

Unused 16px-industry is stored, or "stacked" (e.g. when production queue is empty). Stacked 16px-industry earns 5% interest per turn. Up to 5 turns worth of 16px-industry can be stacked (overage is lost).

Technologies: Automaton Faction Technologies


Cravers:

Home World: Arid

Affinity:

  • +1 Locust Point (LP) per turn on each colonized Planet.
  • +25% FIDS 1025fidsSmall for the 1st 40 LP, -25% after 60.

With the Virtual Awakening free add-on, the "turn" values are modified by the game speed factor : Fast game will lower them, slow game will increase them.

Technologies: Craver Faction Technologies

Harmony:

Home World: Tundra

Affinity:

  • Doesn't use Dust - The player cannot hire Heroes, buyout Improvements, retrofit ships, trade Dust, or receive Dust from Trade Routes, Random Events, or Exploration Events.
  • Is not affected by Approval modifiers - The player's Approval is locked at 50.
  • (Dust)% on Systems provokes loss on (Industry) and (Food)
  • Disharmony: Decreases FIS on Empire for each "impure" System
  • +2 FIS for each ship orbiting a Harmony world, up to 2x max CP - This flat bonus was added in patch 1.1.42.

It appears the "up to 2x max CP" is for the FIS bonus, not the number of ships orbiting your system. e.g. having 8 max CP allows you to have a maximum of +16 FIS on a system.

Technologies: Harmony Faction Technologies

Affinity:

  • +5% Weapon Damage on all fleets for each space battle won. Lasts for 45 turns.
