The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Stellaris must be in a bad place when you can suggest bringing back the old tile system and not have heaps of negativity thrown at you.I will never understand how management or marketing would ever allow a post like this to happen. There hasn't been a patch in 4 months, almost no communication we finally get is "don't expect anything to be fixed."
I have a fairly high end PC but play on small maps in 4x games for quicker, 1 day games.
I loaded up on large one time and my brain meltee because I was always someone with no performance issues... ouch.
I'll almost certain buy this pack on day 1, but the people that play on bigger SUPPORTED BY PARADOX maps have a legit gripe.
I honestly would love 3.0 to basically go back to a tile system and cap planets at 50 pops. Wiz's New Economy flatlined the game.
it's actually the most common suggestion to fix the ai and the micro hell and the lag, believe it or not it would almost certainly workStellaris must be in a bad place when you can suggest bringing back the old tile system and not have heaps of negativity thrown at you.
i actually enjoy the new economy but its problems outweigh any benefit it has, i'd rather have the simple boring old system over our current micro dumpsterfireI preferred the tiled versions to be fair. It was minimalistic but it didn't break everything else in the process.
i try to stay positive, although that has been difficult as of late. i know the devs are at least trying to fix the game, there has to be some reasonable explanation why they have not been able to repair the game after two years. at least that's what i tell myselfThe Devs don't play their own game. Otherwise, they would have noticed every issue we are complaining about for almost 2 years. Nothing will change in the future.
Well, at the beginning of Sep, a Dev Diary had this nugget:i try to stay positive, although that has been difficult as of late. i know the devs are at least trying to fix the game, there has to be some reasonable explanation why they have not been able to repair the game after two years. or at least that's what i tell myself
I'd say it's "just about playable and enjoyable" rather than "very much playable and enjoyable", and I don't have much performance issues.Unpopular opinion: The developers are human, too, and harping on them for not releasing a free update to a game that is still very much playable and enjoyable is selfish and rude.
For the record, next time please include this in the dev diary itself. I can understand not wanting to promise or give away too much, but I think your core customers deserve something more reassuring than silence and "look shinies!". No matter how pretty and well done those ships are, there's no way I'm buying the pack simply because I can't play the game. I can run the game, I want to play, but everything is so borked and mid/lategame so slow, what's even the point?Soon™.
We have a number of different topics we're looking into, but we won't be talking about them in more detail right now. We don't want to deploy something too risky along with the species pack, but when we make progress in something it's likely to find its way to a public beta branch sometime after that.
Guess what, AI issues are deep-set in the code. Fixing a single issue means reading through what is probably hundreds of lines of code, isolating the problem, and then fixing it, and likely re-writing hundreds of lines of code to actually be able to run now that the issue has been fixed.I'd say it's "just about playable and enjoyable" rather than "very much playable and enjoyable", and I don't have much performance issues.
Did you miss the part where he pointed out that other people literally already have? Nevermind that they're the developers, fixing the game is their job. Your argument of "Well you fix it then!" is tantamount to "This movie sucks." "Well I don't see you making a better one so shut it!"Then, like I said... Fix it.
