Stellaris: Nuke My Pops Fam


#21

Having a good and fun game as a Dread Assimilator (off-brand Borg.) Main species (robots) are good at energy and science; integrated organics mostly getting tweaked to mine better. I managed to choose something even worse to micromanage than the original slave system. At least I don’t need to worry about food and happiness?


#22

I find myself actually excited for this game and it’s new expansion. Listening to some of the music at work. That part of the game, at least, has always been great.


#23

Attachments have been cut from the game

Thank Christ


#24

I haven’t had any game breaking bugs, but my ship designer is acting a bit jank.


#25

Does yours also have sound problems?


#26

titans are in game

no reason to play eve ever again


#27

is this game fun or what


#28

It’s a great way to distract your hands while you do more important things like listen to autechre’s discography


#29

that is a good thing to do

usually I just program tho


#30

It’s a great game plagued by an engine that slows down to glacial fps in the late game due to handling of potentially thousands of UI objects but there’s ways around this/mods that help.


#31

I haven’t played in a long while. It was mediocre but with lots of potential last I played. Looks like they’ve expanded a lot on it since then, though in true Swedish style you’ve got to pay $4,000 to get the full game.


#32

I don’t have any of the expansion content. Some of it looks nifty but the really game-changing stuff gets rolled into free updates anyway.


#33

Nu Stellaris is a lot of fun


#34

To be fair the only one I think you “need” to get is utopia as it adds the ascension perks for end game stuff. Other than that it’s mostly all stuff that’s fairly situation.


#35

The Dominion sov system works much better in Stellaris than it did in that other game.


#36

Yeah it’s slowly driving me up the wall.


#37

I just don’t spend a lot of time in the fitting window. It’s definitely a new bug that should get fixed soon™


#38

maybe i will pirate it

So a while ago I made the Galatic Federation from Rick and Morty along with a bunch of the other alien races and I have to say I genuinely enjoyed playing as the Gromflomite race I designed because they are militant xenophile egalitarians, and you basically get access to all the fun stuff.

Got through to the mid game, a great khan appeared but only for the dudes on the other side of the galaxy and they didn’t do shit so I lol’d at that.

Then things got super cool because war in heaven fired, and basically everyone in the galaxy joined the unaligned powers federation, so you essentially have the two awakened empires, a fallen empire + a big federation of literally everything else. So big in fact we just won the game.

Carried on playing, won our war in heaven against both awakened empires. I had a 200+ naval cap and I had only two fleets of 25K and 10K fleet power but with insane resources (like 200+ energy and minerals).

Then robots went crazy in one of my allies empires but they were ages away and I was like “Nah they got dis”

That’s when the Contingency triggered, and I saw that their 138K standard fleets were fucking ridiculous. I’ve smashed all my minerals into building as many anchorages as possible to boost my fleet cap and I now have a fleet of about 90K strength. If I hired all the mercenary khan dudes near me I could bump that to 100K. Not even enough to match one of those fleets.

I’m going to play it for a bit longer but my general feeling is that i’m fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucked.

My first Apocalypse game is Life Seeded. Only the one planet and likely to stay that way for a while, but since starbases are what give you FL, I can do alright. Trying to get to habitat tech so I can remain utterly aloof. Blobbing like mad in the meantime. Need those platforms since I don’t have planets for extra resources.
