3.1 (Last Update on : June 14th 2014)

I am very sorry to announce this but i am not longer working on this Mod.
The Mod's last Version is designed to work with comming updates as long as the Devs aren't changing the core mechanics.
I am aware that the Mod is not working for everyone, however i couldn't figure out why.
You have the right to alter (change, patch, etc.) and distribute it again.
It would be nice to see some credit to the original though.

Go to "My Documents\Endless Space\" and search for a Modding Folder
and extract the Sandbox Folder there
if it does not exist, create it - however the Endless Space Folder HAS to be there!

Go to "User Library\Application Support\Endless Space\"
and search for a Modding Folder
and extract the Sandbox Folder there
if it does not exist, create it - however the Endless Space Folder HAS to be there!
Help on how to get there can be found HERE

With the Disharmony DLC you need to put Sandbox into \Endless Space\Disharmony\Modding

Once installed, you can find the Mod in the "Mods" Section in the Endless Space Main Menu.
You can either activate it from there or lauch it automaticly via Steam:

Steam Launch Options


Once you are In-Game, look out for "with Mod: Sandbox 2.1.0" in the lower-left corner.
Then select New Game and go to the Faction Selection Screen.
Now click on "Add", go to "Anomalies" and select the Parts of Sandbox you want to use.

Thank you for the great, promising mod but I have a big problem in using it. I can get the mod to show up on my Mac Endless Space game just fine and I can add and modify the traits I want to use for my custom faction. Once I launch the new game however using the Sandbox traits, the AI players don't do anything....they just sit there and do nothing for the entire game, only having a maximum of the 2 starting planets!! I have tried using different traits. What should I do? Please help!

Edit: If it helps, I am using Sandbox 2.1.0 with Endless Space Version Master 1.0.65 according to the main game start screen.

I am sorry to hear that, but i can't help you with the Mac Version as i don't have one myself.

What i can say you is that the Trait is not affecting the AI.

I can't say if the Mod is responsible for that behavior or not.

Sorry for the absence, i didn't have much time to work on this. I have a new PC now and am currentlently downloading ES + this Mod - so maybe i am able to replicate your issues now.

I will fix this as soon as i can.

Mod refuses to work. I installed it manually in the "Endless Space/Modding" folder in My Documents, but none of the options show up in the game. WHY?!

This is the problem that some appear to be having:


I think some of them think that you just install the mod and it works, but you have to manually add the custom traits to your faction for it to work. They're under anomalies on the faction trait screen.

The mod isn't even working right. I put it in the folder "Endless Space/Modding", and the traits (nor the version number of the mod) shows up in-game.
