Beyond Earth Mod of the Week: JGRN1 Orbital Telescope

Welcome to Mod of the Week, where we highlight Civilization: Beyond Earth mods created by the community. This week: the JGRN1 Orbital Telescope.

Even though Beyond Earth takes place many hundreds of years in the future, today’s technologies still hold relevance. Take this mod, for example: the JGRN1 Orbital Telescope.

It was created for the livestream embedded above and is based on the real-life Hubble Space Telescope. The JGRN1 provides +1 Science and +1 Culture to tiles you own, making it a powerhouse of the orbital layer. As it says in the official mod description: “With a large range of effect, the JGRN1 is the future of OP orbital telescopes!”

To install the JGRN1 Orbital Telescope mod, head on over to Steam Workshop here.
