I can understand if I'm doing something wrong and the game punishes me for it and I can understand that things happen in battle and you have to roll with the punches and press on. But this is a whole new level of bull crap that the game is punishing me for when I did nothing wrong and it isn't challenging, IT'S BULL CRAP. I'm enjoying the story so far but this is starting to really get on my nerves now that the fun stops.

Alright my dudes, I'm a guy who makes mods sometimes and I like Star Ruler 2 a lot. However, I've seen that people here and in other places don't like it nearly as much as I do. I'm already working on a sort of mod for it that lets you pick techs to have at game start and gives the AI races some pre-defined ships etc (to get the game going faster and make race differences more meaningful), but in the process I realized that nearly everything about the game can be modded, practically all the game logic is external.

So basically, if you don't like Star Ruler 2, what would make it a better game for you? If I get some good ideas I might try to make a mod around them.

Fighters seemed useful to me only for missiles and EMP. They get a decent power up later through research. They are pretty useful on escort missions (HINT HINT), but I typically mass frigates until the capital ships become available.

Any ships you can capture (or are gifted to you) that are not Somtaaw are generally inferior to the ships you can build since they do not benefit from your research upgrades.

If I recall correctly there is a pause option, so if you see your ships getting hit with an infection beam pause the game and tell them to self destruct. Only Aids carriers, motherships, and heavy cruisers can fire the infection beam.

I know what mission you are on. As a rule of thumb when playing Cataclysm, do not do whatever the game tells you to do to progress unless its timed.

Send your collectors out, check if there's anything new to research or build, then plan your moves accordingly. I'm pretty sure I was able to use mimics to scout out and trigger cutscenes without alerting the enemy.

Don't forget about the Infection missile which can also infect your ships by colliding with them.

Oddly enough I never had that much problems with them. I suppose its because I massed the Ion frigates and set them all on evasive.

Recently played through Rogue Squadron 2 on the Gamecube (loved TIE Fighter back in the day, although my all time favourite PC space shooter is Freespace 2).

Anyway, the game felt bland and way too cutscene heavy. After about 2 hours through and I had completed the game.

I can't be alone in thinking this is overrated as hell surely?

Found another alien race in a nebula. I thought they were pre-transnewtonian, so I sent a ground invasion first. Luckily missiles don't work in a nebula and they were not annihilated. They do need reinforcements though for the enemy outnumbers them more and more with every casualty. I'm testing out my new fleet against these guys. Thankfully I kept some beam weaponry instead of going full missiles for this exact scenario.

That was my plan from the beginning, and it only gave me the option to research the drone cruiser after the enemy fleet had already almost killed my flagship

Thanks for the tip anon I'll use it if the GAME CAN STOP BEING SUCH A GAYLORD, I didn't even change any settings or do anything on this PC yesterday other than listen to some relaxing tetris soundtracks on youtube and browse a few threads and I did all that when I was playing the game this and last week.This game doesn't want me to play it so I'm gonna play something else.

I never did get what all the fuzz was about with dune.

Its a sci fi setting with almost no sci fi. They fight with knives and by shouting at eachother.

Tech is ignored for the dumbest of reasons, space battles never happen and a handful of unwashed savages who can barely read are somehow the greatest super soldiers ever, because living on the edge of starvation and dying from dehydration your entire life some how makes you better at shooting stuff?

The tech is insane, like afformentioned knife fighting.

>But muh forcefields

Whats wrong with hand grenades? Slow enough to get through a forcefield and will kill anyone inside it. What about crossbows? Hand guns? Why not just slap one of those shields on a tank and simply use it to run over the enemy? Why not use a powerarmor under that shield so you can fight more effectively in close combat? What about poison gas?

Even with a shield like that, fighting unarmored armed just with knives under those shields is still idiotic.

But what I hate most about it, as has no doubt been said many times before by others, its that its about desert dwelling savages who under their religious leader rise up and size the world's fuel supply in order to enslave, oppress and push their religion on everyone else.

And they're supposed to be the good guys.

And then there's those bitches running around openly using their mind control powers to manipulate all the big political powerstructures of the world, and noone ever seems to oppose them? What kind of insane logic has ever emperor ever been running on, since they haven't banned this? What kind of leader can accept that a rival group goes around and mindrapes half the empires noble houses for their own agenda?

As I understand it, its basically the source of a lot of fantasy that has a slathering of sci-fi as an icing, but does a bit better at integrating the sci-fi than most my favorite of those types is still Outlaw Star.

They also go over some of those things. Knife fights were because anything too fast would bounce off the shield, this is down to people with a knife could cause that reaction. I think they made some crossbow bolts that could slip through, and obviously handguns proper would be too fast. Poison gas gets slowed down enough that it is one of the reasons Baron Harkonnen escapes a death trap.

The thing that is exceptionally stupid about it is that the reason the fremen were good at fighting on Dune was because they had worms, knew how to deal with them, and were good at knife fighting without the shield. They then go off planet where there are shields and no worms and somehow win? Unless they spammed lasers which is a notably stupid thing to do because a smart tactician can exploit that stupidity to make you nuke yourself, something done in the book, it doesn't really make sense.

Anons I need help finding a space game or hell any game to play, I tried so many games for years but none of them were fun for long or at all, I tried out 4x games like sword of the stars and galciv2 but I couldn't get into them because I couldn't understand what I was doing. I used to love 4x games when I was younger and and ironically less patient but now I don't find them fun or understand them anymore also it seems like it's mostly space 4x games like those I get lost in.

Should I try alpha centauri or something else that's easy to get into?, In my youth I used to be an excellent Commander in 4x games and lady luck wasn't as spiteful towards me but now I am certainly an idiot when it comes to space 4x games. But at least I'm still good at strategy and rts games

There are not many games with crew management like FTL. For single player I would recommend Freelancer, X and Rebel Galaxy. For a little older, still in the freelance side, Protostar: War on the Frontier, Hardwar, Terminus (often overlooked). 4X style, I really like Star Ruler, Distant Worlds and Galactic Civilization 3 and if you got the 'tism, Aurora 4X. My personal favorite is Distant World. RTS would be Sins of Solar Empire, though with no campaign it can become rather dull in single player, Star Trek Armada is always a safe bet and, of course, Homeworld.

Also if you have a DS, I recommend Infinite Space.

Damn shame about ED. It looks gorgeous and it sounds beautiful but then they tack on tedious shit after tedious shit.

Honestly it was best in the beta where there were only a few systems so travelling wasn't so awful and people were clustered together, and there weren't that many ships and no engineers so you didn't need to grind to take part in PvP, a cannon Viper was all you needed. It was great.

The full game just buries the fun behind grinding and it's not really worth it.

Sandro Sammarco couldn't came up with good game design to save his life. The RNGneers are the ultimate testament to that. A mechanic that wouldn't be out of place in a mobile phone game. If this is the best idea they could come up with for a tuning and crafting system, you might as well abandon all hope for the rest of the game.

In the same patch they revamp the mission and rep system but don't implement it for the engineers, the way to rank up stays crafting and trashing mods. Ridiculous.

I would have thought the new guys would have won. They seemed to have gigantic hull mounted lasers by the firepower I was able to see and the scored a few dozen direct hits on my 'allies.' My allies use mesons to go through armor and shields however so the new guys were likely gutted.

The micromanagement isn't too bad for me unless I'm doing everything at once. A few in game years ago I was fighting against an alien fleet, exploring new systems with scouts, geologically surveying every planet, gravity surveying every survey point, building jump gates on every jump point, terraforming entire systems, all the while designing and building new colony ships and freighters to build up new colonies along the Tusla route.

For the fleet engagement I had to set the path my fleet took, get past the ECM bullshit the enemy had by getting closer to the enemy to use my missiles. I had to set a target for every ship in the fleet every 5 seconds, which takes forever. I sent my scouts in to unexplored gates to search the new system. Once the system was deemed empty and without hostiles, I ordered my construction ships to jump the gate and build one on the other end so my scouts can travel back to New Earth for refuel and possible overhaul. My gravity survey fleets would then break into individual ships to survey the points finding new jump points in the system. Process would repeat. The geosurvey fleet would also break up into individuals and search the planets for minerals. I'm currently in a mineral shortage, so I'm planning big things for the Tusla route. I had to terraform entire systems by selecting certain gasses and the amount of gasses to use. It takes forever if you don't watch them carefully and you end up spending more time fixing your mistakes. I got Tusla to have 10 earth like planets. It will be my first commericla hub outside of New Earth. Had to design better and faster colony ships and freighters to send colonists and mines to the new planets. I fucked up on the path of one freighter fleet and they ended up dead in the water a few dozen billion miles from the nearest colony. I forgot a Lagrange point when setting up his route. Right now I'm just letting things go until there are enough people and mines on the current planets before moving on to the others. Now if I had a commercial hub outside of my homeworld, imagine doing all this for that one as well.

Interrogations happen randomly when picking up pow's. I didn't get any interrogation notifications this time, but I have been given maps of enemy systems and designs for enemy weapons before. I can kill one of the prisoners to find out what climate tolerances they have. This would give me an indication of what planets to look out for when entering a new system.

How are Distant Worlds and Aurora in the alien/culture design and politics creation? Havent played either them and Stellaris, but in Stellaris, I can see a decent empire/race creator, and there are mods to expand it. I want to have many and varied options about politics, race traits, culture and stuff. Any game that have these that I should know?

The way I see it:

Distant Worlds is a lot about flat simulation, with no actual customization for aliens, outside of file editing, which is at the very most tedious, and still offers nothing as far as culture is concerned. It contains all the small bits and pieces with which to set up large interstellar populations, and then manage them in slight ways, but nothing beyond this. most of the meat that I've seen in Distant Worlds comes out of the ship design, colonization to a lesser extent even with everything that goes with it. Still it has even a meager amount of that something that makes my brain concoct an interstellar political structure that in the game doesn't actually exist outside of the small number of diplomatic interactions with AI. It's shallow, but wide as somebody once put it, and that's exactly what it feels like, with a few potholes here and there representative of the ship design.

Aurora is autism, and I've only played just enough to actually understand that I don't have the required autism to lock into it, or that it's deceptive in its autism, I do not know. For the alien customization, it is little, as its focus does not lie on that at all, but literally every fucking thing else. I enjoy many of the mechanics though, the slight overcomplication giving some feeling of actually doing something, but really if you're looking for culture, again it's all in your head.

Stellaris is a mess. As neat as some of the presentation in Stellaris can be, and the amount of customization for species, which given the number of mods enhancing and expanding it, the base clearly isn't enough (for example I would really enjoy if species had options for tangible physical traits).For the actual quality of the gameplay mechanics behind the traits and other things that go into the customization of a species in Stellaris, it is again, woefully lacking, as effects are near meaningless in the great span of things, and it serves more again to stimulate your brain into convincing itself that something actually has merit, when in fact it does not. It's pretty, it has, again, a nice presentation, but there is nothing there in the end, leaving it feeling empty (even aside from the actual total emptiness of much of the game itself). Oh, and as for cultures, again it's all in your head, but at least you have a stat to look at so you don't forget.

The metaphor is pretty blatant and heavy handed, and that the story tries to pass these guys off as the good guys is insane. Just like trying to justify them as being superior soldiers because they are almost starving constantly and have to drink their own piss to survive.

Stellaris IS good, for what it is anyway,

and like the other anon said, it scratches right up my 4X itch

you guys no notion of what a major undertaking it must have been for Paradox, since its completely new genre of game apart from their usual historical strategy

and its a good thing they will keep jewing out dlc, because it means they keep polishing and improving it, and no, they can't divine how to make the best game, the feedback is useful

and lastly, they seem to have fucking learned their lesson not to jew out dlc too much like they used to do with CK2

Fuck. I play BOTF: All the Ages - with modified ships for movie feel/balance. Ships are far more expensive to maintain, but more powerful. The battles also look better as ships don't have 20 phasers, rather from 1-3.

Alas, to my dismay I found out hat the AI cheats like hell (seems to ignore upkeep and somehow has 100 ship when I struggle to build and upkeep 20, and I have a better economy!) and doesn't know any other tactic other than "death ball" - which combined with the first problem means singleplayer isn't satisfying at all, since you can't fight the deathball, so you play cat-and-mouse abnd try to do more damage without actually fighting his fleet.

For anyone who even cares slightly about E:D here's an update.

The beta for the long awaited 2.4 update, which should finish (fucking finally) season 2 and herald the return of the Thargoids, starts on the 17th of August, it will began as a closed beta to those who have previously paid for access and eventually will become an open beta before release. Fdev has already said the beta will contain no Thargoids and that all of that ayylamo will start (and be released in stages) after release.

This is probably to prevent canonn and other groups from figuring out the entire plot and mystery within an hour.

In more current news which may be hinting at shit coming in 2.4. the Thargoid bases have been confirmed to be growing out of the ground (possibly into capitol ships) for anyone wondering their secret was worked out a while ago and they point to a currently permit locked system. Besides that the capitol ships themselves have been seen to be moving, as Fdev have in no way attempted to fix this it's probably a broken implementation of movement for them. Which will probably lead to cap ships fighting each other like they do in the trailer and possible the alien cap ship as well.

And another nail in the coffin, a running rumor is there will be 10 new engineers in 2.4 so here's hoping the new weapons we need to fight the Thargoids are not locked behind them. protip they probably will

Finally a reminder that the Quince system is still generating scanning missions on mass worth millions each that all ask you to scan a single location on the planet right next to the station. Only a single srv scan is required then you can suicide back to the station in your sidewinder. It's also still generating shittons of passenger missions worth millions to a single location in system as well as massacre missions worth millions if a war is going on.

Highly recommend a visit before it's probably fixed/nerfed in 2.4

I mean from the perspective of the story/audience. It might really be rare in the lore, but if there are a lot of them in the story, it doesn't feel rare. Plus there is the fact that nobodies immediately recognize jedi and their weapons in the prologues while in the original trilogy an imperial officer, who should have known about Jedi tricks seeing as how blatant they were in the clone wars, shit talks Darth Vader to his face.

There was a systematic effort by the Empire to wipe out the Jedi, and presumably suppress knowledge of them. It makes sense that imperial officers may not know much about the Jedi given that nearly 20 years has passed since the Empire began and people probably didn't see much of the Jedi anyway.

Probably not till post 2.4. Fdev have realized locking themselves into season 2 instead of improving the grindy shit to be less grindy was a mistake and have confirmed a set of updates next in line will "go back and fix core features".

If you haven't played recently they've made engineers a little less "tedious" at least for most basic engineering. All materials drop in sets of 3 and where you can find them is more explicit. The actual physical commodities that used to be necessary have been dropped as well until Fdev find a way to let you store them rather then being forced to carry them in your ship everywhere.

It's pretty mediocre in my opinion.

The combat can be set on "turn based" (it has a timer and stops the game every few seconds to make it look like a turn) or it can be played in real time.

Combat space is two dimensional with a bit of fake 3D thrown there with the ships being able to fly above or below other ships if they get too close to each other.

You can control your ships pretty well and pause the game to give orders to them, you can set engagement ranges and behavior as well as formations and you can also dodge some of the weapons by ordering ships to move out of the way of a slow ass projectile coming your way.

Ground combat is non-existant, you can bombard the planet and send troops if you have troop carriers and each time you use troops a troop carrier is used up, so you need to be making those constantly if you want to invade places.

Movement in strategy map happens between hyper lanes and sometimes there is a wormhole on a system that is linked to a hyperlane and you can then use that to go to the other side of the galaxy.

This does make your colonizing a bit more strategic as you might want to close several bottlenecks and then colonize the area you have available for yourself.

Research is your regular research tree, there are sometimes techs you gotta choose over other techs once you have researched a certain new tech, but you can trade technology with other races so that is all fine and good.

Trade agreements are basically a flat money production increase that happens both to you and your trade partner, also in order to start trading both you and your partner need some money, so if your trade partner lacks money, you can gift some and then make a trade accord with them.

Planets work in a way that the more buildings you have there the more pollution they produce and more workers you have working on hammers, the more pollution they create.

There are atmosphere scrubbers and other buildings that can take pollution down, but id recommend specializing your planets.

Make bigger planets your shipyards, build as much construction related stuff on those as well as atmosphere scrubbers.

Also build always money producing buildings and few happiness producing buildings on all planets because just like in Civ V, happiness is a factor in this game also.

Also, space stations in planetary orbit give you more fleet power (you can have more ships) and there is something defending your colony.

Also orbital structures don't produce pollution, but they are mostly defensive facilities like a missile satellite and a laser satellite.

You can and should build battle stations at lane entrances to make unwanted ships unable to enter your system and enemy fleets have something to fight with before getting to your planets.

So, like i said before, the star systems are connected via space lanes and each star system has a star and varying amounts of planets.

There can also be asteroid belts and gas giants but with enough tech you can turn even those into planets and then terraform them.

The more terraformed a planet is the more room there is for colonists, same with the size but with size also comes gravity which can be normalized with a specific building that you research over time.

Depending on your starter species, your folks might like high or low gravity and specific biome, but as time goes by you can terraform stuff to more your liking, while your colonists are already on the planet.

tl;dr: It's pretty mediocre, doesn't do anything too innovative or new but plays competently enough.

Fug, i forgot to talk about the ship making in this.

Your ship has two different "looks" to it that you can choose from and that's about it for visual differences.

As for weapons and other such, well the engines are a thing that are there automatically and can be upgraded as your tech level increases, weapons can be picked and chosen from in a list at ship designer.

All you gotta worry about are weight of the weapons and how much your ship allows for additional weight.

You can pick how many guns of specific type there are as well as after research pick some additional traits for the guns, like AOE damage, shield piercing, rapid fire, high yield and guided.

Deserts of Kharak is a game every lore nerd is going to hate.

It completely rewrites the story on how the guide stone was recovered and the tale about the political situation on the planet at the time as well as raising the Kiith Gaalsien from a somali pirate threat level to highly advanced tech wielding orc horde of zealots.

Also land carriers.

Gameplaywise its basically a 2D homeworld, the fighters you can get are a squad you summon on the field to perform an air strike and that's about that.

It's pretty evident that the game was supposed to not be a homeworld game prior to gearbox joining hands with the devs and letting them use their old IP to make a new homeworld game, even though this game probably would had been infinitely better as a non-homeworld game.

Returning to the lore for a bit, remember how in the old lore world was in semi-uproar over the discovery of the Khar-Toba? Well here we have a fucking world war between the northern coalition and the Gaalsien and we end up nuking them pretty hard during the campaign via a combination of our own weaponry and a Taiidan orbital Ion cannon satellite.

Hell, we even discover a wreckage of a Taiidan carrier in the desert from which we grab the controller unit to the ion cannon and then use it.

>>13218500

Those things are the only interesting thing on the game.

Lore wise, the really painful stuff isn't just the Gaalsien super tech.

Its the planet covered in half buried Taidanii ships that everyone has somehow forgotten by the time Homeworld rolls around. Noone's bothered looked at the tech of the guns, the designs, the engines all that shit. No no, you have to research that shit in homeworld.

Also, despite the wrecks being obvious to anyone who comes across them, sticking hundreds of meters out of dunes and shit, somehow NOONE HAS EVER NOTICED THAT THEY ARE THERE?

And why are they all hellbend on leaving Kharak behind in Sands of Kharak? Why not use all this abundant power and supertech to try to make the planet habbitable or build habbitats in orbit for people and growing food? Building a supership to try and evacuate people from the system just seems like a retardedly costly and stupid thing to do.

The original homeworld has none of the urgency of evacutating the planet. It was an experiment to make a ship to colonize the stars with the tech they found in the original crashed mothership.

I'd still like to see a Homeworld based MMO where you control a small fleet of ships instead of the Elite or STO style where you only fly one ship you directly control.

They're still fiddling around with what should be core game mechanics (colonisation/planet types), the economy is the game is terribly simplistic (minerals rule, energy is only relevant for fleet upkeep all things considered) which isn't suprising given that the only PDX game with a complex economical model was Victoria and the guy who did it left the company some time ago IIRC.

Diplomacy is breddy bad, espionage doesn't exist and there will most likely never be another set of ship graphics because too many people bitched about the price of the Plantoids pack due to the effort of modeling so many combinations (lel, ever looked at what SotS brings to the table?).

Stellaris can be a nice little distraction but is ultimately lots and lots of wasted potential.
