Improved Space Battles (ISB) attempts to improve both the visuals and gameplay of Stellaris’s space battles. This is the standalone balance portion of ISB and contains gameplay changes designed to balance and encourage massive space battles. It is meant to to be used with Improved Space Battles [Graphics] which focuses on graphical changes. This mod is designed for long games in huge (1000+) star galaxies.
Summary of what the mod tries to do : Speed up the early game. Encourage strategic wars in mid game by allowing players to build defenses that limit an enemy fleet’s ability to just FTL past their entire border. Set up the end game for massive battles with other empires and galactic invaders. It also modifies fleet AI to make large battles less of a melee brawl.
