This is an update of Psionics Re-Expanded for 2.5.1. I will be trying to keep as much of that original mod intact as possible.
This mod expands the psionics of Stellaris, allowing you to run your entire civilization around their psionic potentials. This also expands the ascension path of psionics, allowing your civilization to transcend entirely beyond their meager physical forms. Now with compatibility for Planetary Diversity!
Massive thanks to surface level spook for great contributions towards fixing bugs and adding compatibility!
New Authority Type: Psiocracy
This new government works similarly to Machine Intelligence. Taking it will increase your administrative capacity by +20 and increase your empire’s unity output by +10%, however you will suffer a +100% penalty for going over your administrative capacity. Your species will start with the Psionic trait, and a ruler will be elected every 40 years.
New Origin: Shrouded Origins
This origin requires the Psiocracy government type. Your empire will start with a shrouded world as its capital, with the ability to inhabit other shrouded worlds. These worlds are extremely difficult to invade and nothing but specially attuned psionic pops can survive on them. The downside is that you will receive a -20% penalty to all research (bear in mind that being psionic increases it by 10%, so really it’s more like -10%). This start will also immediately unlock the initial psionic technology.

New Ascension Perks
- Psionic Veil: Allows you to terraform planets into Shrouded Paradises, powerful planets that are exceptionally difficult to invade, since invaders cannot survive the harsh psionic forces.

If you find any errors with this mod please let me know, I’ll be trying to condense the content into features that do the same things to reduce files and increase compatibility. I want to prevent overwriting unnecessary things, but the mod is basically just direct ports since pre-2.0 instead of rewrites so a lot of stuff is a bit weird. I’m going through it slowly and I plan on adding plenty of content, and I am more than open to any balance changes or adjustments.
