The Plantoinds and Humanoids species packs were left behind as purely cosmetics packs, in favor of Aquatics. Now, Paradox are adding new content to Plantoids, and Humanoids are to come as well.

To start off, Paradox announce that those players who already own Plantoids, will get all this new Stellaris content for free!

The first additions are to the Traits. These new traits require either Plantoid or Fungoid portraits, Paradox explain, and will only be available to those who own the Plantoids Species Pack:

  • Phototrophic Trait - This Trait is mutually exclusive with Radiotrophic, costs one trait point, and substitutes 50% of a pop’s food upkeep with energy.
  • RadiotrophicTrait - This Trait is mutually exclusive with Phototrophic and costs two trait points. Radiotrophic also substitutes half of a pop’s food upkeep with energy. Pops with the Radiotrophic trait that live on Tomb Worlds will have no energy upkeep, get +10% Habitability on Tomb worlds, and +10% Pop growth on Tomb Worlds.
  • Budding Trait - This Trait is mutually exclusive with Rapid Breeders, and costs 2 trait points. Budding allows your pops to reproduce via budding, in addition to their organic pop growth. Each pop will generate 0.02 Organic Pop Assembly per month.

Paradox Games Stellaris - New Plantoid Civic Stellaris - New Plantoid Civic

There are two new Civics added to the game as well.  Both of these new Civics are available for regular and Hive empires, devs say, and are included in the Plantoids Species Pack. Only Idyllic Bloom requires a Plantoid or Fungoid portrait:

  • Catalytic Processing Civic - Replaces your Metallurgists with Catalytic Technicians. Catalytic Technicians convert 9 food into 3 alloys. Machine Empires will convert 12 food into 4 alloys. 
  • Idyllic Bloom - Lets you transform planets into Gaia worlds by building Gaia Seeders on your planets and then upgrading them. The Gaia Seeders have 4 phases, with the 4th and final phase triggering the terraformation of the planet to a Gaia World. Available to regular empires as well as Hive Minds.

These additions will be followed by new content for the Humanoids Species Pack as well. Both will available in the game with the next patch!
