If there’s one place that procedural generation could really shine, it’s a game where the backdrop is a Ringworld or a Banks Orbital. That’s all the more “open” that an open world game would ever need to be. You could have a ton of different types of games in that environment. Imagine an RTS, or a city (civilization) builder, or even a mystery game (gotta find out what happened to the PrecursorForerunnerEarlybirds). Hell, you could do a grand-scale ARMA-style military campaign game on one.


ae2b3c  No.15616191

>>15616040

I disagree. A ringworld is the ideal shape for a linear exploration game; The size limit allows for hand-crafted geography, and the single general direction allows for a progression of events/difficulty as the player progresses, while still being open.

Creeper World 3

Some good shit though I wish there were more things that could break ties. As it stands, once you get a beach head set up, there's nothing the creeper can do to break it. I've been watching the dev vlog for creeper world 4 and he's put in a bunch of wave physics and fluid dynamics that should help with this problem. That and the crimson creeper and how it interacts with the fluid simulation. I remember him saying he didn't intend for it to flow towards where you were fighting but because what you're shooting at always causes a downhill slope, it just naturally does it.

It's autism like that which makes for great game dev.

It's pretty great honestly. It feels like a modern version of Frontier: Elite II, Starflight and that one game that I can't remember the name of right now, all merged into one and with multiplayer. If you stick with it you can find some pretty awesome planets that you just haven't seen in other games. I'd say it's the best space game out there at the moment.


ae2b3c  No.15628503

>>15627969

It's slightly above Elite Dangerous. The space combat is still simplistic shit, and cave generation got nerfed hard in the last update (a shame). But you can build up to your own fleet of ships which all generate cash from missions and expeditions now. The grinding on the surface gets meh for a while, but once you get aforementioned money, you can just buy resources. Alien interaction is decent as well. I've been totally avoiding the plot, so I can't speak to it.

Nah, I actually pre-hated NMS before release, pie in the sky MMO space games just aren't for me. But when it got out that it was only SP with asynchronous uploading of explored stuff on launch my inner contrarian got the better of me and I decided to check it out because everyone everywhere was picking on it.

Turns out it's basically the game I've been waiting for since I was a kid and played space games on an old machine running DOS. It was everything I wanted and then they just kept improving it, making it a legit great game. It scratches every itch you got, that old science fiction aesthetic, the fantasy of exploring strange new worlds, a living and active universe that you still can become isolated in if you travel to a desolate place. There's mysteries to investigate, secrets to uncover. You can feed a cute alien critter and befriend it, hide from acid rain in a cavern and then take off and seamlessly journey to another planet in the system, only to get eaten by some horrific creature you encounter on the surface.

So, what is the opinion on how the next Stellaris DLC is shaping up?

They finally let the cat out of the bag: The paid feature is playable megacorporations.

>Implying I pay for Stellaris or it's DLC

According to the dev diary, Megacorps have a much smaller size limit on their empire and suffer harsher penalties for expanding over it. Elections are held every 20 years and Megacorporations can pick any ethics.

However, they can open up branches on the planets of other empires after concluding a treaty of commerce and construct mutually beneficial buildings. Throwing out a Megacorp means breaking the traty and winning a war against them to nationalise their assets, however if you lose you undergo forced vassalisation as a Subsidiary.

This new class of vassal pay 25% enery income to their overlord and can colonise and fight with other vassals (mirroring the Feudal Society civic and Thrall states of Awakend Empires).

Modified gameplay comes from the Criminal Heritage and Gopsel of the Masses civis.

The first turns your empire into the space mafia, meaning you build branches without being invited and can build special crime generating buildings. The second turns you space televangelists meaning you can build churches that cause Spiritualist attraction and generate income and special jobs. These are combineable.

Hi, friends!

Sean Murray here, I just thought I'd let you know that all that stuff you've been dreaming about in your deep sea threads is now in NMS. I know we didn't beat Subnautica but I do think we did a better job and we didn't fire anyone for their political beliefs in the process and you get guns. So if you haven't already checked the game out now is a great time to do so, since you now can properly explore the watery depths on alien worlds with your friends.

That's probably in the pipeline. The space part isn't the main focus of the game though, it's more of a means to an end of getting to places than an focus in of itself. The biggest strength of the game is the procedural places, creatures, situations and so on and they are almost all on planet surfaces or on space stations.

Space is just a whole bunch of nothing. But they are likely to be working on new scenarios, encounters, space fights and such in space but there's not really that much you can do with it, not in the context of this game anyhow. Is there anything in particular you want to see?

I can't break out of the early game/first era of star traders frontiers on brutal difficulty. I love the game but it can be frustratingly punishing. Like, it's all well and good if I'm scraping through by the skin of my teeth and I make a short sighted or suboptimal decision that fucks me over later, I can live with that. What hurts my bumhole is when I'm doing everything right and not taking stupid risks and then the game just decides to throw an unbeatable & inescapable encounter at me like a xeno ship or a 2.6k mass battlecruiser bounty hunter when I'm only level 12. git gud I guess

Actually Sony pushed it out the door before it was ready, it's always the moneymen making the real calls. What should be clear at this stage is that Hello Games always intended to deliver on their promises, as they have done so for free after release. Any other dev would have made it paid DLC, and in a world where a certain someone sells pipedreams and jpegs for millions you have to give them credit for that.

There was a very small chance of a comeback due to the captured systems I kept, but in all honesty everybody else was just itching to shoot obliterator rounds at me so I just started a new one hoping it doesn't go as bad as this. Also, NEVER trust the lumerians, I reluctantly entered an alliance with them only as a deterrence tactic only for them to make choices for me, fuck my chances for expansion even further, and finishing wars that I was CERTAIN to win with some dumbass treaty that only benefitted them and I never agreed to.

>Servo Skull to the Magi is called Reditus

This is gonna turn out well.

The mechanics speak through a distortion of speaks, it's pretty good. Story is set in 8th edition, exploring a recently discovered Necron Tombworld on the eastern fringes.

One called Khepra speaks in a female tone of voice, leader of Skitarii troops. And by female voice I mean it warbles in a higher tone than the others, kind of hard to tell when the people in this are all but machines.

There's an overmap where you move units and respond to events, this is just the tutorial so I think you there's more to this later. First battle has against 2 Necron warriors. Camera angle is fixed above when placing units and when moving, so it's a bit annoying. You collect Cognition points around the battlefield which I assume are used for attacks and the like. Servo Skulls can be used to get CP and reveal an enemy statistics. Two armor types, physical and energy along with weapons that attack both. So this flammer this Magus has needs 2 CP in order to be used. You can extend movement using CP as well. The Necron Skull represents a turn of replenishment and the Mechanicus Skull allows you to deploy more units if you have the CP. In this case I can send some servitors out to soak up gun fire. There's also LOS for units, as this Adept here can't fire on the Necron because the servitor is in the way. HP also carries over in the mission, kind of like Cards of Fate in that you journey around the map, have events happen then fight in a tactical space. The more a weapon is used, the more the Machine Spirit becomes active in it.

Last shot. This is the equip menu, different weapons and such require augment slots to use. Canticles are prayers you can use once per mission I think to help you during battles. And that's about it, once the bar reaches 100% you lose the game but I wanna collect Xeno-tech so I might stall it somehow. But yeah, might look cheap but it's got enough depth to keep me interested so far. Alot better than Space Hulk: Tactics.

I'm paused for now. Mission 5 has a bug where the map doesn't load but the devs should release a patch for that soon.

It's a pretty good game, different branches of techpriests and you can focus on a more melee character or equipsome blasters, or both. Blast both at range first than close in for kill. Got some decent melee Skitarii as well so I'm no longer relying on Servitors.

Learning it the hard way, eh?

In general, mining, tech-mining and farming seem to be pretty profitable for a first venture. When you get Patrol HQs/space stations on all your bases and mining -> refining chain, you can try going heavy industry and building up your military.

Yeah no kidding. I figured Alex was being cryptic and ominous as a joke during one of the blogposts when he said some military official was irritated at the upstart taking market share.

You can also find them by checking the comm index when you dock at stations and planets, they'll be hanging around looking for someone to hire them.

Also the only ship that has a salvage gantry is the salvage rig, so if you want that mod you have to get a rig.

already got two of those ships with me, i though there was a bigger hull with that mod, because of the way the description of it.

How many heavy machinery do you have on at all times? im at 500 of those, but i think its too much.

>mfw found lobster loot


d2f530  No.15746106

>>15746098

I've found 250+ is a reliable amount to carry since it prepares you for basically every planet you come across, and you usually find enough heavy machinery to offset any you might break while salvaging stuff. A few hundred crew and heavy machinery is enough to tackle the whole Sector, the only real bottleneck is supplies.


114ed8  No.15746139

>>15746106

>the only real bottleneck is supplies.

if its not supplies, its fucking fuel, right now i have a HSS diana, 2 freya saves supplies/HS and 2 salvage rigs,

all the skill points on my character are for saving fuel/supplies, getting better salvage and colony shit, he cant fucking shoot a gun to save his life, but can move all the way to the corner of the map, if i have enough shekels to buy fuel and supplies.


d2f530  No.15746230

>>15746139

For me supplies is a much bigger headache than fuel. Get a Phaeton and max it out and you're good until you need to refill, but supplies being the omniresource makes it such a pain to manage until I get to the system I need to be in.

If I'm not losing it to repairs from hyperspace storms, I'm losing it to repairs from when I get caught off guard by an enemy fleet and they don't let me disengage (which is every single time, I swear the AI is out for blood), and then once you finally get to a system you have to blow 60+ or more supplies on surveying systems. Heck, I can find fuel out in space easy, I just need a derelict tanker, but finding supplies in space is about as easy as taking on the Hegemony system defense fleet with a Lasher.


e3db98  No.15746257

>>15746139

I typically carry 500-800 supplies, 1000 crew and 1500 fuel, but fuel is rarely the bottleneck. If I scavenge, it's the cargo space, and when I survey, it's the supplies.

>>15746230

If you use destroyer size freighters, you can think about equipping them with talons. Even with a malus they're useful in fending frigates off. Also, get yourself a tempest with double phase lance and either play support or hunt frigates. 2500 flux in a second is pretty nasty, but 3750 is even better, and flux locks even destroyers easily.

They help against shortages, useful if there's a size disparity between your mining and manufacturing colonies. Aside from that, gamma cores decrease demand, and therefore decrease overall market size. You will net more money by removing gamma cores, albeit at greater risk of shortages.

The most likely reason the game ended up the way it did was because Sony wanted it out before it was actually even close to done, this is becoming a bit easier to think possible with recent events.

Best current space game just keeps getting better. Someone awaken me from this awesome fever dream where a dev is actually continuously supporting their huge anti-hype PR trainwreck with a stream of great improvements and content, this just can't be the real world. Because in the real world developers make hundreds of millions promising a pie in the sky while delivering nothing and either never release anything or abandon their game just after it's released.

All scripted sequences and controlled situations to make the game look good, but you can still see a glaring lack of polish in things like the animations.

I suppose that depends on what you compare it to, it's just not right to compare it to a cinematic fully scripted AAA ordeal that's more cutscene than game. It's the best looking game in the genre easily I'd say, not that there's much competition. I also like the aesthetics and art direction in general, it's just a pleasure to look at.

I mean when you say you don't think it's pretty you really should quantify that by mentioning a game in the same niche that you do find pretty, and it has to have been released. Not only to have a point of reference but if you know some open world space games with planets you can land on that looks better then I'd like to give it a go.

You're wrong, the game looks pretty much exactly like that. Some planets have lush forests and some don't. There's also been planets with huge amounts of grass since release.

As for shadows they're probably toned down but it's nothing you notice at all while actually playing the game.

What the pictures don't tell you is that there's a fourth module type. Which is empty except for a fortress shield.

Same. The UI is notably different from X3 or any of its contemporaries, so it took me a good 2 hours to understand what all of the menu tabs did, and get a good HOTAS binding- but I had a good enough time being lost in space that I just figured it out.

>Feeling more secure, I start exploring

>Scanning down and blind jumping through wormholes, finding some new sectors

>"Ok. Fuck."

>Fly in the direction of civilization, avoiding enemies on the way

>Manage to find the gate on the other side of the sector without trouble. Only one more sector between me and safety. Things might be OK!

>Jump through the gate into a sector that seems a bit…. spicy… There are clouds of electricity billowing around. My ship says something about hazardous environment.

>See it start to chip away at my shield. The sense of urgency takes a few seconds to kick in.

>Start booking it to the opposite side of the sector, still not entirely worried since the damage seems slow.

>Ok, my shield is gone and I'm just past the halfway point. My hulls being corroded.

>I've pinged the opposite gate but I've still got at least 30 seconds to go and my hull is half gone. Now I'm worried.

>The gate is in sight and my hull is barely hanging on. I vector myself dead-center on the gate, and see a Xenon gatecamp. At least 6 of the fuckers.

>Almost there. 2100m/s has never seemed slower. 5 seconds from the gate my ship chimes in

>HULL CRITICAL

>The Xenon open fire, their shots trailing

>VWOOSH

>and I'm back in Hatikvah territory. Safe, with two pixels of hull on the meter.

in X:4 is there a reason my mission to assign a captain to my starting ship "Rickenbacker" is still there even after I did find an NPC and supposedly assigned him to it. Because every other NPC I talk to now from Wharfs just says I can't assign any more. So can I fire people?

And even still, after I bought myself a new ship to pilot which also has a captain in it? My autism wants it out of the way.

Nevermind on that part, just sold the fucking ship and that solved it, I guess.

Tip for any new faggots: in the map left click the ship you want to sell, then select the station (probably has to be in the same system I dunno) and then right click it, the option to sell should be there.

Right, so for starters the improvements you get out of the strategic resources have been reworked, they no longer give you a passive boost to weapons or shields but instead you gotta make a political decision of using them for that purpose, after which you sacrifice an X amount of that resource and it stays up for about 17 years or so after which it must be reinstated.

trade policies decide what your trade value gets turned into, energy, energy and consumer goods or energy and unity. So far i have not run into any research that would increase the options on that thing, to get more trade value you gotta either build buildings that produce it or attatch to space stations those solar collectors that used to give you energy but which now collect trade value from nearby star systems instead, oh yeah and trade value on planets is something oyu gotta collect by either building a space station in system or few systems over and add few of those collectors on it (they got an actual name but im too lazy to check it out right now).

So, the big question, the arcology. It requires 20K minerals and 200 influence to build and you must also replace every district on your planet with city disctricts prior to this, afterwards the city planet wont produce any energy, minerals or food (unless you built some hydrophonics on that planet) and so everything has to be hauled in there.

Oh yeah, also the archology has its own separate ascension perk, so even if you know how to mega structure you still cant build them without this thing.

Gonna go in more detail on some other stuff like ground combat and branch offices in the next post with pics, but before that im gonna let you guys know how they rewamped ship and station building.

Ships and stations now need alloys which are either found as exploitable deposits on random planets or you have to build a building that changes minerals into alloys, also ship and station upkeep is now in alloys.

Minerals also get changed into consumer goods which can be traded for energy credits in the great market, but they are mostly used by pops.

If there are no consumer goods present the pops get upset, they also get upset without amenities, which are a thing that cannot be transported between planets and must be produced locally.

Amenities are just a general term for luxuries and entertainment.

So the ground battles look like pics related now, which is imo an improvement from the battle of two lines that we got previously, you still cannot affect it beyond retreat command and the defense armies seem to have been buffed, so gameplaywise there is no difference betwean old and new, it just looks a bit cleaner to me.

That whole mixing xenos thing is its own ascension perk as well, its on the bottom of the list of things i will ever use in this game.

So, the branch offices are a thing megacorps cna build, regular corps have to ask for a permission through diplomacy screen from other races, but i decided to let my inner Hutt loose and played as a criminal syndicate, in which case i could build them where ever i pleased.

The thing is that it costs something like a 1000 energy and 50 influence normally and the further away you get, the more it costs.

So what can these offices do? They give you slots per each 25 pops the planet has, up until 100 in which you can build stuff like (in my cartels case) secret drug labs, night clubs, underground mining operations, hidden yards where you can dismantle ships some pirates keep on capturing, smugglers dens etc etc.

These things increase local crime, which can be rather detrimental for the owner of the planet, due to this, when you build a branch office on the soil of someone who doesnt like you, they get a casus belli to shut down your operations on their worlds and for each shut down op they get a thousand energy.

They can also shut down ops without declaring a war, but based on the frequency at which they do it, it must cost them an arm and a leg.

After your operations have been shut down on a planet, you cant set them up again there for some amount of time, id say about 10 years, though i haven't checked it.

Also you cant set up ops during a war or during an armistice period with the empire you are fighting against.

That's all i can remember for now (also why did i post smae picture twice up there?).

Gonna post more as i remember it and as i play further in, gonna let you guys know how those new mega structure work once i get there.

Oh yeah the caravans, they pop up around at random, offer you some stuff or cause an random occurrence and then buzz off to another part of the galaxy, meanwhile you can call back at their branch office, buy tokens from them and use them to either buy and open luckboxes or play with some one armed bandit.

Just don't, it's all a waste of energy, although there can™ have something nice inside them.

So i tried today some of those new mega structures along with researching further stuff.

I ended up discovering that you can set up planets specializations and some times the specialization is decided by the stuff built on the planet.

So i tried the strategic coordination center and that one black hole mining one.

Former gives more fleet cap and the latter just works like a dyson sphere but with minerals instead of energy.

It's a brilliant idea because clunky obtuse annoying mechanics is exactly what the (literal) boomer audience wants from ED. It also pads out play time and extends the grind and that is exactly what Braben wants.

Why not just launch it on multiple platforms at the same time and allow the buyer to get it from their store of choice? Why funnel to Epic? Oh, that's right, greed and profits.

So I recently pirated Stellaris 2.2. I didn't get the megacorp DLC with the download, but I still had some fun with it anyway. I started playing a Citizen's Republic that wound up allowing enslavement of xenos. I'm looking forward to having more time to play them after my uni finals are done.

I started with the Commonwealth of Man, took back Earth from the decadent UN and my leader transcended to become immortal and turned the Commonwealth into an Empire. To be fair I was enslaving xenos and funding heavily into military so I'm not surprised I went that way.
