Fluid ideology is selectable at the very beginning of the game. It is worth mentioning that it can not be enabled on an already existing game save file. You will have to create a new colony and start from scratch. Players who opt for this ideology can choose only one meme, however, it is possible to adding more of them by carrying out reformation.


Reformation enables you to develop your ideology during gameplay through memes. This will make your colony more flexible. This will enable you to adapt to the different circumstances present in the game. To carry out a reformation players must earn development points.

Development points

Development points are earned by performing activities when developing your ideology. For example, these will be: conversion of a colonist, successful performance of a ritual etc. Usually players will receive 1-2 development points for completing a task. To carry out the first reformation it is enough to have 10 points. However, each subsequent reformation costs 2 development points more.
