The purpose of these roundups is to cast a spotlight on some mods that have caught my attention over the past month or so. The mods weren’t necessarily released or updated in that month, and I haven’t necessarily perfectly play-tested the mod, but they may otherwise look interesting, high quality, or are pushing the capabilities of the base game.

Stellaris has a huge number of mods from which to select so it can be difficult to spot what’s good and what’s not. I don’t claim that the choices I make are definitive, but I have enough experience with using mods that I can generally spot a diamond in the rough. I’m of course open to being corrected!

You can find all of the mods featured in these roundups in my Steam Workshop Collection “Odin Gaming Mod Roundup”.

While it’s relevant, I’ll continue to publish one of these every month. Follow Odin Gaming for email updates or follow me on Twitter to be notified of any posts as soon as they’re made.
