    Personally I prefer endless space 2, but stellar is is enjoyable. It's very good at the start but in classic fashion it ends up playing itself by the mid game.

      instant turn off, ain't combing through all that shit to find what's needed and what isn't
      why can't they just be normal and release 1 or 2 expansions and then do the sequel

        2 cosmestics, soundtrack and ebook. Everything else is some kind of "content pack" so you can't even ignore half of the dlc list like with other paradox games. Just pirate that shit.

        The problem is good luck actually making more and more games based on the same shit (history) which, having already been done, doesn’t really change, so it’d be practically making the same game over and over again (there’s a reason Total War went into Warhammer). Or you get Victoria 3 dogshit if you do make sequels so it’s usually better to release dlc. Paradox did try going a more fantasy route with Age of Wonders but that series of games didn’t make much of a profit (if any). Stellaris is actually one of their newest ips other than Imperator Rome (and look how that went). The only way I could see them making a bunch of offshoots is if they started making games based in alt-hist scenarios (kinda like making kaiserriech mod as its own game), but I doubt Paradox has the creative vision for that.

          superstates specificlly is cool because it gives you a ton more options in the galcom instead of just being "da empire"

            do the Imperium alternatives have any effect on the member nations, like forcing civics or something like that?

    As someone who has played over 1000 hours with a million mod’s installed, it’s not worth it. Every playthrough is essentially the same shit over and over.

      I'm of a similar mindset. The only times I find it somewhat invigorating to play is when my friends and I autistically RP our nations leaders in multiplayer.

    I love that game to death but man do they love to frick it in the ass. There’s so much junk and shit in the game now that it slowly becomes a slog (hyperlanes, gateways, habitats, orbital structures, megastructures). Unfortunately, the game doesn’t give you the option to turn this shit off, so while the start of a new game is super fun, mid game is where it starts to get shitty. Of course, the Paradox homosexuals also made sure to make the leader of mankind a democratic black woman, but I made sure to fix that little mistake through a little modding myself.

    Anyway OP, sorry for the rant. Tldr it isn’t worth it until they actually fix a bunch of stuff with the game involving pops and structures (and give you the option to turn off a bunch of the junk).

        True. Unfortunately, I prefer to play with achievements in Ironman mode. Also, the mods sometimes break after each update.

        Can't you just uninstall the various dlcs? Or does that break the game in other ways?

        While it’s true that some of the bullshit was introduced by dlc, not all of it. Also, dlc like Utopia are pretty core to the game in many important ways, but you could definitely get away a with not using any of them (just expect very little variation between games on both a story and role play level).

        historically, paradox games are best optimized for having all DLCs. the chance to encounter game breaking shit, because no one tested your combination of DLCs, is high. or at least that used to be the case

    If you're over 25 Stellaris is one of the few things that can make you stay up for 24 hours, this is really good if you've fricked up your sleep schedule and need to readjust it.

      the fun comes from solving problems (and terror bombing the homeworlds of your rivals into tomb worlds). it's also fun to deal with conquered worlds and population and having to decide if you allow them to be real citizens and allowing them to spread to your core worlds, or having to deal with their abysmal productivity. turns out aliens that are prohibitet from reproducing, migrating and voting aren't happy. thankfully genocide is only a few one clicks away

    It's definitely worth the price for the base game. Maybe even some dlc purchases too but pirating them is always the recommended option for paradox games.
    You will eventually realize that you're just repeating the same things every match but at least stellaris has a random-generated map to shake it up for every playthrough, unlike the other paradox games. On the other hand the fact that it's not a game of historical autism means there won't be any impactful events like with the other paradox games.
    It's the same real-time-with-pause as their other games but stellaris leans heavily towards the "wait for something to happen" type of 'gameplay'. If you don't have a lot of free time on your hands you should play something else.
    And I recommend going in blind without using guides or wikis - the game and the choices it offers are best enjoyed when you don't know what will happen. Once you've learned what everything does it becomes more of a spreadsheet simulator.

    Like every israelitedox game: a mile wide, but an inch deep. The DLCs make RPing somewhat enjoyable, but the endgame always ends up a boring slog. I can’t remember the last time I had played until 2500 before quitting.

        No. Anon is referring to when they removed wormhole generator and the "normal" FTL drive which ignores memelanes.
        You used to be able to choose from these 3 options for your starting FTL tech, now memelanes remain as the only option.

    I find early game fun as frick, when you explore and take systems, get anomalies everywhere, early wars and shit. After that game becomes boring. And holy shit I hate managing planets and pops.
