Mod «Destructive Bombardment: Death from the Heavens» for Stellaris (v3.4.*)

Destructive Bombardment: Death from the Heavens

Have you ever felt like orbital bombardment was bland and flavorless? Do you set your fleets on Indiscriminate and never think about bombardment again? Do you want to destroy worlds civilizations from space without being a genocidal empire? If the answer to any of those questions was yes, then Destructive Bombardment is for you!

With this mod, current bombardment stances have been buffed, new stances have been added, and a policy added to customize your destruction like never before! Here are all the changes and additions:

Current Stance Changes
  • Reduced the chance of Selective bombardment killing pops, because if you can travel FTL then surely you aim properly at military targets
  • Increased the damage of Indiscriminate and Armageddon stances, and reduced the minimum pops killed for Indiscriminate from 11 to 9
  • Armageddon bombardment can be unlocked for Militarists and Xenophobes by researching a tier 4 technology
New Stances
  • Destructive Bombardment: A new stance in between Indiscriminate and Armageddon, capable of killing off the last pop on a planet. Available to Militarists and Xenophobes of any kind, as long as they have the policy activated.
  • Biological Bombardment: A new stance that focuses exclusively on killing pops and armies, but does no planet damage. To use this effectively, use another bombardment stance to get 100% planet damage and then switch to this one. Available to those who have taken the Evolutionary Mastery ascension perk.
  • Psiwave Bombardment: A new stance similar to Biological, but with slightly different stats and the ability to harm machines (through the use of telekinesis). Available to those who have taken the Transcendence ascension perk.
  • Electromagnetic Bombardment: A new stance that focuses exclusively on killing machine pops. Does actual planet damage, but not as much as Indiscriminate or higher. Does not affect organic pops, but is even more effect against machines than Armageddon. Available to those who have taken the Synthetic Evolution ascension perk.
  • Bio-Trophy Theft: A new stance available to Rogue Servitors that functions as a superior Raiding stance, allowing Servitors to take their bio-trophies forcefully without direct conquest.

Each of the ascension-path stances has unique graphical effects, and the destructive stance has a unique icon that fits perfectly with the other stance icons!
