This override patch intends to improves both the Fallen Empire, certain leviathans that are based on precursos and especially, crisis factions to be more challenging when using ACOT.

The Override also functions as the compatibility hub for all mods that are generally associated with the fallen empires (Zenith of the Fallen Empires, Twinks Playable Fallen Empires and others).

"We thought we were alone in this galaxy. We thought that the precursors were our final obstacle. We were wrong. Somewhere in the abyss, the new challenger awaits. But we are the Ascended, we will not fall, not to the precursors, the lesser empires and not these new invaders."

"The Contingency Has Arrived"


  • Crisis Improvements, all crisies will now have their own unique ship components. All balanced around ACOT final component tiers. Their ships are also improved, especially their civilian ships.
  • Scourge Invasion Armies have been buffed significantly. Contingency will now uses Omnidroids over standard androids.
  • Crisis now have their own titans (Scourge Queen has been upgraded to Titan-level for this purpose)
  • Captured Queen will also now be a titan-sized, and will produce up to 60 ships, with more balance between small and large ships.
  • Scourge will automatically infest planets if they manage to bombard the planets to zero pops before any armies arrived.
  • Extradimensional Invaders will now count Dimensional Anchors when they are built. <<<< This is no longer needed as PDX has recently fixed it, but I beat them to it first, so I win yay 😛
  • Cybrex will now be more useful, as they will now create new fleets after their first attacks.
  • Fallen Empire Ships will now use ACOT FE-Tier Components.
  • Automated Dreadnought and Enigmatic Fortresses will also now use FE-Tier Components

  • Vanilla Components will be automatically upgraded to new tiers, thanks to the override.

Known Issues and Limitations

  • This mod overrides certain crisis events, a conflict will not hopefully break the game, but may make crisies not spawn Titan-sized ships.


Their components are balanced around ACOT components, some stuffs are notably stronger/weaker. Contingency in particular, have almost exact same stats, just that they shoot red stuffs instead. BECAUSE RED GOES FASTERRR.

Not Responsible If you set the crisis difficulty too high and end up with crisis fleet in million firepowers.

Save and Mod Compatibility

Requires: Ancient Cache of Technologies

This mod is designed to be compatible with Twink’s PFE and ZOFE.

  • Works on existing saves, but any existing FE/Leviathans/Crisis ships will not be upgraded. Only new ones will.
  • Overwrites various base game components, this function will not be compatible with other component mods that also overwrite them. (This probably won’t break the game, and you can probably still use this mod for Crisis)
  • A small portion of Crisis Events are altered, unless another mod make extreme changes to Crisis Events, everything should be fine.
