This mod now includes eight, four-tiered policies designed to provide maximum flexibility to players in the form of various grouped bonuses. These policies are available only to the player and can be turned on and off at will.

Despite recently adding three new policies and expanding an existing policy, my hope is to continue to develope this mod into the future. I will continue to try to streamline the policies while providing players the maximum amount of choice when it comes to customizing difficulty and game expirience. If you have any suggestions or feedback, please leave a comment!

  • These Policies were designed for game expirience customization, not as a "God Mode"
  • Due to the language used in the mod, some tooltips (Job resource production, etc) may not reflect actual increases in production. Always check total empire output.
  • Due to language in the mod, Research Output will not visibly change, but research speed will still increase as intended. As a result, any changes made will only be recognizable in the remaining time of current technologies being researched (I’m working on finding a more user-friendly modifier)
  • I appologize in advance for the first option under Societal Prosperity. I couldn’t help myself…
  • I have bundled these modifiers together in a way that makes sense to me. If you have suggestions on how I could make it better, or you have ideas for new policies, please let me know!

No known incompatibilities. Works fine with my other policy mods (See below).




  • Changing the function of "Research" policy from +research speed to +research production (So players can visualize the impact of the policy on production)
  • All other aforementioned Policies have been added! If you have suggestions for streamlining the policies, improving the bundles, or needs not met here, please let me know!
