Paradox have put up the changes coming to Stellaris for MegaCorp and the big 2.2 'Le Guin' patch
5 December 2018 at 8:14 pm UTC

PatolaCan't stand playing Stellaris anymore. The game changes too much and too quickly and all the paid extra content makes me feel the base game is utterly incomplete. That's one game I once liked but now dislike not because of quality, but policy.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ this is their first take at a space-age grand strategy game, they're still experimenting. Personally I like that the updates feel substantial and change gameplay. Plus you can always revert to a previous version you liked with the instructions here

Except they this the same with EU4 and CK2.

I kind of test this on Linux. It runs well (although water graphics is a bit broken). Dev listens to feedback and it is changing a LOT in area where it matters (controls). It used to require a lot of micro since you had to manually assign each action, so making advanced materials was annoying since you had to click every board or clay brick. But now, villagers without job automatically gather crops during season, they find incomplete tasks, such as building, and finish them and refining materials is easy since all you need to do is to assign person to workbench.

Basically, everything that I didn't like was reworked and now is much smoother.

Game is a bit empty right now, currently all you can do is build small village (as in video), but there is much more planned. Defensive buildings (palisades and stone-walls for big cities), warfare (some weapons and combat is already implemented, but it is lacking on enemy AI), trade and many other things you would expect in neolithic age.

It wasn't originally planned on Linux, but I have been pestering dev long enough that he tried to click on export button in Unity and it worked another proof that when you are smart enough and build with multiplatform code in the first place, it is not hard.

Same goes for the recently showed Fertile Crescent, I annoyed dev a bit and he send me linux build

So thanks Alex for this and LincRead for FC!

btw. I love the graphics in Neolithic, it remind me paintings in these history books (and textbooks).

Its funny how fast it went from "Paradox is the example how to DO DLCs" to "Paradox is the example how to NOT DO DLCs."

What I am playing? Well, I will be a bit boring.

Dominions 5 and Skyrim.

Less boring, I tried the Orwell thing and it is kind of fun. Last month I was also playing Surviving Mars and Airships: Conquer the Skies.

QuoteColombo didn't really say anything at all. So who knows what they really mean? There's not much to analyse in that sentence other than Colombo disagrees with me (without providing a reason why).

So Colombo didn't say anything? And no one knows what it means? But Colombo must have said something, and something meaningful, when you interpreted the meaning as disagreement with you.

Given that there wasn't much to analyse, you made quite interesting analysis of my sentence.

Sadly without getting the simple meaning right in the first sense.

Dude, you should stop babbling.

drmothThere goes that entitlement again.

I would suggest to stop repeating words if you don't know what do they mean.

Originally backed the game..., refunded after Linux was delayed.

And now, after so much time, I don't really care about this game anyway. I bet you that devs would complain that there isn't enough linux users.

The Teaser is horrible. I have no idea what this game is about.

1. Intro is a bit weird. It is a personal story of family... tragic event... then cut to evolution of civilization.

2. Connecting basic game features to progress in game is stupid. "Hey, you can quit the game from main menu. But you need to build building X to get to main menu!" It is OK for some minor things, like skins, unlocking music or so, but basic functions should not require any progress. Especially save or pause function, which are so much important for people who need to stop game at exact time or stop it momentarily to do something different.

I am very much looking towards this game.
