We will never have a direct sequel but there is an upcoming Star Wars strategy game. Let's wait to see if its gameplay is similar so it can be considered a spiritual successor.

Who's looking forward to the big reveal in February? Any runs you want to try out when the game releases? Speculations on unrevealed mechanics?

Aesthetic + 2 racial traits. At least all the premade or randomized AI players you encounter will have the same two racial traits every time. Biological races would be utterly meaningless & purely cosmetic when playing multiplayer though unless you house rule/gentlemen's agreement it or use some mod. I would at demand the "physical trait" to remain unchanged and only allow the "mental trait" to be changed in multi. Thankfully this seems pretty easy to fix with mods.

>>1319892
Based on what I've seen from the "first look" video, the unit ability from that trait allows your units to gain health from eating your own fallen units too.
>>
>>1320104
That's a pretty common rule in 4x multiplayer. Creating your own faction is usually a big no no. Although that's sort of the whole deal with AOW these days, so maybe it won't be.

You are invited to come marvel at my incredibly autistic cultivation array. Or ask questions about and discuss the game, that's fine too.

Thanks, I guess I shouldn't have ignored fishing just because it's annoying in most games.

Fishing is now less annoying. Only less so.
>>
>>1320081
Ah, yeah. Haven't really played around with the illumination thing yet other than feeding the illuminated building that came around early in the game some elemental garbage. Would a different one (possibly) show up if I destroyed that one, by the way, it's been over 300 days I think.
>>
>>1320092
Soul Chant any useless buildings that show up for free Primordial Soul Gems, that you then use to illuminate useful shit instead.

>>1320094
Guess I should become more ruthless in general, anguished soul gems are running low, too.

I had one of my best mp games ever last night and it was exactly this. 3rd armored, m1a1 abrams and bradley spam. i was able to just pick him apart with TOWs and the m1a1s tanking.
I also got a few very lucky gun runs with the A-10 and it shredded like 5 t-80's. when i watched the replay i couldn't believe it. it was killing units i didn't even realize lol

>>1318738
I think the main thing games can't simulate very well that's very important IRL is morale and friction, all the games both vidya and tabletop that tries to implement it have been unimpressive, frustrating (although I guess that's the point) and/or janky.
Something basically no game does is asking the question if your barely trained reservist human shield or sea of T-34s actually wants to die gloriously, and maybe that's a good thing
>>
>>1318938

3rd Armored is so fucking good after this patch, probably the best NATO Division. It's funny how really it was just a mild buff to the Fire Teams and helis that made this whole division really come together.

>6-man but 2-support weapon + AT-4 fire teams in Bradleys locking down towns and blasting enemy tanks with TOW's and IFV's with the Basedmaster
>M1A1 beast-mode accuracy wrecking T-80's
>Apache rockets decimating entire infantry pushes
>A-10 Rapehog absolutely brapping helicopters, tanks, infantry, everything
>F-15 merking enemy air from across the map
>Chappy + PIVADS Mommy and Daddy AA net everywhere brapping and blasting down everything in the air
>ACAV + Scouts and sending ACAV into forests for cheeky snipes plus loads of visibility from the Scouts

So much fun, by far my favorite division right now. Before this patch I was a 5th Blindee Francefag but now I feel way more at home with good American metal. PACTfags just can't compete

How's your republic doing?
I've done a weird capital-intensive realistic mode game, starting with oil into bitumen, fuel and power. It's a fun and unique way of getting started.

> How do you know 5 millions are enough for the resources of all that shit?
It isn't.
The number crunchers of the central committee have estimated with simulations (loans and autobuild) it will cost about 40 million rubbles to complete the project. The republic is actually quite poor and runs on a clothing industry, that has been expanded to triple its original size, plus exporting boatloads of coal. With the addition of a steel mill, already under construction, the republic might actually make some decent money for once. To show our capitalist neighbours the folly of their ways of course comrade. Glory to the revolution!

it's actually alright, but i did upgrade pc this time last year and shift everything to an ssd.

pc is liquid cooled, but the fans at the top of the case which cool the radiator blow like a jet engine when i oad up a save. it's an excellent ersatz space heater.

For me it's Oxygen Not Included, no game feels deeper and more fun than this one.

the graphics are literally 2D

Some games are like that, despite being 2D they still require a decent GPU. I had the same issue with Stars in Shadow, meanwhile Farlanders came out recently and it works just fine here.

It is legitimately interesting but not anywhere near as good as it could've been.
People seething about it haven't played Alpha Centauri in years and are the same type of people to tell you XCOM is horrible just because its not X-com.
Is it as good as Alpha Centauri? Of course fucking not. Is it better than most of the turn based shit civ-alikes that come out 200 a month now? Yes.

this is one of these games where the soulless meme really is true, it's just civ 5 remade without any soul

Absolutely not. It's a Civ 5 mod, and I say that in the worst way possible. There are numerous orphaned mechanics and half assed ideas, the game was dumbed down in development as well. Just play SMAC.

No. Stop asking every 5 days.
