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.
And the AI doesn't do smart things right now around building upgrades.

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

Re: Stellaris

I missed the original conversation about Stellaris but now with many DLC packs and many free improvements, I've been playing this game a lot. It scratches enough of my 4x game itch and while I love running Starfire campaigns, Stellaris lets me play. There is a lot of buzz about the next update which...

The Last Angel - Spacebattles.com

I've been reading The Last Angel (up to chapter 23 as of today) and I recommend it.

Not really very Starfire oriented but a good space fight story.

Re: Marvin asked me to run a survey...

Marvin asked me to ask all of you a few questions. 1. When you think of Solar Starfire, Ultra Starfire, or whatever version of the strategy rules you have played: what parts of the rules do you consider essential to the strategy rules. What parts of the rules do you feel cannot be left out? Why? I ...
