Stellaris Dev Diary #87: A Glimpse of the Future

Stellaris Dev Diary #87: A Glimpse of the Future

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

Hello everyone and welcome to another Stellaris development diary! This is going to be a short one, as it's really just about letting you guys know that we'll be taking a break from feature development diaries for the next few weeks, so everyone gets a chance to focus on and enjoy Synthetic Dawn and the 1.8 update that just came out.

There will still be 'filler' dev diaries about whatever we feel like talking about that week, but they will *not* be about new features or development priorities. The team, of course, will not be idle, and indeed have already started working on the next big thing... but more on that another time. Feature dev diaries will resume as normal on October 26th.

However, as I don't want to leave you *completely* hanging, I'm going to share this screenshot taken from our internal development build, with absolutely no context or explanation. Enjoy!

Looks interesting...

Thank you for getting 1.8.1 out so quickly. Is the 'next big thing', barring the unexpected, scheduled (not expected) for the end of the year?

After bug killing, hopefully the team can get some well deserved rest.

I can't comment on timelines, but we're looking to update 1.8.1 with fixes to some additional reported issues, such as the problem with Synth Ascension and species rights.

Looks like finally a way to rotate stations. And something big in the center, probably nothing to worry about. . .

I am curious where are new ships. We have only few types. Should be at least 20 types.

The surrounding defence-stations aren't that interesting, but this big thing looks like a spaceport, which is connected with 6 other ones - time will tell^^
