This mod replaces econ bases with a new type of starbase, artificial planets! Unfortunately they function like starbases, not planets, but that can't be helped. In addition, starbases and the constructor module planets now have to be researched. In the TA version artificial planets appear much later, at the same time as Terror Stars.
This mod is for DL, DA and TA and can be found in the I-Mod Downloads section.
As of the update the DA and TA versions of the mod are compatible with the Mod Metaverse.
