Re: Wealth, what is it. A TOaST Thread.

Since this is the in the Starfire section, I'm going to keep looking at wealth as the abstraction from the game and resist defining it by in concrete examples. Weath is the ability to change the state of the actor using it. No matter what the actual physical form, game wealth is how the player decid...

Re: What space combat games do you play?

I like the strategic game so I play Stellaris a lot. We have a group that plays every Sunday night. I know my kids play some tactical game, but I will have to find out what it is. Nice!

Re: Stellaris

Anyone have any comments on the latest update?

I think they made the game better but increased the micro management of jobs instead of tile constructions.

If anyone wants to play multiplayer my steam handle is practicalm.

Re: Empire Ratings

Some comments,

1. You might want to give all 3. Mean, the Mode (to the nearest 1000, and Median
2. Make sure you include NPRs as they frequently can be more powerful or much less powerful (single system)
HEL races only. You could also separate out single system versus multi system empires
