I played Starsector for a while, but there isn't a lot of meat to the late-game colony sim stuff. I made a completely planned and AI assisted colony by farming alpha cores and I slowly gained the ability to terraform planets via a mod, resulting in me making as many planets in the solar system possible to be inhabited by humanity with little to no need for environmental gear, basically making a densely populated reach of space completely overpowering all the other factions by miles.

Tried it. Amazing start as a communist. Sure, your relationship with all factions is destroyed, but just over a few months I stacked up a ton of credits without even leaving Askonia. Turns out making supply runs for space North Korea is extremely profitable. And hey, since everyone hates me, I don't even get the choice to use the "legal" 30% tariff market. I'm already level 15 from profitable trades.

So talking about the lore of the game, did Ludd cause the collapse? I found a listening post with a log of an old Domain prisoner list, one of whom was a cult leader with a strong "anti-tech, anti-science and anti-Domain" sentiment. Wouldn't be surprised if he was somehow involved with blowing up the gates. Or maybe he just used the collapse as an opportunity to start his cult on a civilizational level and I just read too deep into it.

What kind of ships are you using? I am still new to the game (started after this thread), but from my experiance you want to have a shit ton of carriers.

Also are you colonising? It's basically impossible to field a proper fleet without it in my experiance.

The only good thing about stellaris is that it conforms to the leftist worldview (ironically, porky Collectivism equals Authoritarianism versus Individualism equals Freedom equals Entrepreneurship was overtime changed to Freedom equals Egalitarianism and Communism, Private business equals oligarchy)

The game, however, was broken by later patches. It's overcomplicated and requires tedious routine, but also doesn't have any variance at all. It's perfectly balanced, but due to being overcomplicated and drawnout doesn't work out for multiplayer.

To add:
The Khan sounds cool, but…
He croaks way too soon to his assassin sex slave gf, so he only ends up a threat for like a quarter of the Galaxy
The War in Heaven is cool, but…
The rest of the game past midgame bores me so much that I literally never seen it.
Galactic market sounds cool, but…
Its fucking sterile and carries zero weight for the actual gameplay, as its just a seperate tab where you can buy or sell limitless amounts of goods. Traderoutes? Piracy? Smuggling? Nah, fuck that shit, no need.
The L sector or whatever its called is a cool idea, but…
Its just three prescripted outcomes of what is inside.
Curators are a cool idea, but…
They are just a guaranteed thing that will be a part of all your games and there is no real poin to them outside of "dump credits to gain x modifier".

I'm adventure level 28 going on 29 now.
Progression slows a lot; I'd been binging the game pretty hard since I'm NEET right now, but I had to slow because I can't go faster without paying at this point.
I will not pay a dime; I will not buy the pass, so I can't attest to it being worthwhile; it's ultimately your choice, but I wouldn't advise it because it doesn't seem wholly necessary unless you really wanna power through the game.
Anyhow, I take issue with the whole resin thing, but ultimately the fact that the amount of stuff I can do on any given day is limited has promoted a healthier lifestyle for me.
I can't just keep binging the game straight through to the cruel and bitter end because it prevents me from doing so,
so I just hop on and do my commissions and the domains if they got what I need and leave it at that; it's fun enough that way.

The Liyue part just made me a little bit sad. Outside of the rich city, there are abandoned mines, villages with only elders and children. It strikes too hard, is this really espacism or just social commentary under the guise of isekai?

I've actually been having serious issues with Nvidia on my Linux due to driver madness. Between the lack of hw stock and this fuckery I am leaning extremely heavily towards AMD gpu for my new build (running a 10yo box rn). I just hope their drivers are up to snuff and that they actually have stock.

I'm also stuck with nvidia on Linux (I'd still dual linux boot with amd anyway because I'm too lazy to sandbox everything properly) and afaik amd drivers are as good if not better than on winblows.

I started P3 with this mindset but through the middle part I just kept booting the emulator on my free time only to dungeon crawl on Tartarus. The RPG part is weirdly compelling to me despite being pretty barebones.

I played Nocturne after P3 and was blown away, now THAT'S a fun RPG. I still like P3's plot a lot

>>5712
Is it? I beat Nocturne and went for the TDE on my first playthrough, it was kinda challenging but not really hard imo.
On 4 I got filtered almost immediately by Naraku.

Its an Alexis Kennedy game so the bafflingly frustrating gameplay is intentional and you can find blogposts about how he deliberately made the gameplay irritating on purpose for narrative reasons which I feel missed the mark in this one (although I maintain the very slow pace of Sunless Sea was a major asset to the game that Skies lost). I get that he wanted to make it feel like you're a cultist in Lovecraftian fiction trying to piece together forbidden lore to figure out how to commune with your chosen god but for the most part it makes you start playing large chunks of the game on autopilot and losing the atmosphere while driving many people to just looking up how to achieve things.
I have enjoyed the large amount of time I have spent with it but the signature AK frustration doesn't help this one.

>I guess one shame is that there are quite a few wasted things. For instance certain principles, as I just couldn't find a use for them, I don't think I have ever used Edge or Winter ever

All of the principles are really useful, edge, winter and knock are probably the 3 most useful because they are all key components in late game summons including the incredibly useful Maid In the Mirror which can solo most of the expeditions in the game and is required for one of the apostle ascensions.

Anyone here tried 'Lawless Lands'? It's a recently released Dark Fantasy RPG made by an Indie developer. Really fits mobile well if they could do it.

Takes place in a pandemic ridden setting, full version released late last month.

"Plunge into the Lawless Lands of Crossia, a once great kingdom where chaos slowly consumes more and more of the country. The cities have plummeted into poverty and crime, and the surrounding countryside is littered with famine and death. The army is close to collapse from an ever-lasting war and cannot stop the spread of the disorder. Hope is almost nonexistent, restoring order is believed to be futile, and panic lingers everywhere. Take on the role of a champion who rises from the ashes to end the suffering."

Comrades, does any of you play this masterpiece? It's great, you can get it for a few dollars, It's quite old so it runs even on potato computers it has basically got all of the fun realistic stuff like arma but without the drawbacks. When you are in a tank your view is actually inside the tank and the game (the mod) is managed and updated by fans whom the developers gave "control". And, best of all YOU CAN BLOW NAZIS TO PIECES

How do you configure your mouse settings. Sometimes the screen gliches and I look straight into the air and when I try aiming it takes alot of effort if the target is really far away. Like if I move a fraction of a millimeter with my mouse it moves the rifle like an entire degree, that's like 60 MOA. I can't hit anything like that.

I just realized once you try joining a squad and doing what the SL tells you or doing what the game wants you to do i.e. bum rush the cap points and hold it. you tend to die without getting any kills.
I seem to get the most kills (and not die most importantly) just doing my own thing. Surveying the land and moving to naturally superior terrain.
Managed to take at least four out before dying as a sniper that way. Problem being they already capped like three locations. My mouse is bad so I consider it pretty good.

> My team has lost on Dom Pavlova (Pavlov's House) several frustrating times because too many people set up in the buildings and never pushed forward, and worse, were innefective. Objectives could be taken but not held, because too many people wanted to be another Vassily Zaitsev.

This is what I hate, the game forces you to get killed. Like, it's just a house, if defending it would be more strategically useful to just hold your current position. If attacking it would be better to scout around and get behind to the logistics and avoid the fight altogether. Holding dirt because it holds magical properties doesn't really make sense to me. Holding a bridge so 30th corps could pass to arnhem to relieve troops make sense. Securing Carentan so Utah and Omaha can link up make sense, but rushing a bell tower or a hill on higher ground in 15 minutes or less because *reasons* just boggles my mind. Omaha I understand, the beach is a death trap and it's the only way on the mainland and you have several divisions behind you who will be doing the same thing you are trying to do if you fail securing the beachhead. (but that's 3-6 hours, not hyper 30 minutes.)

That's one of your hacker abilities, you can send a fake APB to go arrest whoever you want, and then there's an upgraded version so you can send in a heavily armed SWAT unit instead. If you use it on civilians they'll probably just get arrested but gang members will often enough fight back and then their buddies will join in which creates a giant horrific street battle (especially if either side calls in reinforcements).
