  • 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.

And yet they won’t give a single system to you in a trade.
Because trading systems is a nightmare the AI developers can not possibly deal with right now. And realy wish to never have to deal with, at all.

So, this doesn't look all that funny at first glance, but here's the story. I just got the Vechtar Zavonia anomaly, and when I researched it I was directed here, to the Weou system, oh-so-conveniently nestled in between Gomelsa (which you can see is part of the territory of a marauder clan) and Uswkoria (home to the Stellar Devourer). But wait, there's more! You see, Weou wasn't just any random system even before this happened. Weou is also the system containing the Rubricator archaeology site. At least by the time I can actually explore the place I should be well-prepared to deal with Shard.

That reminded me of when the Rubricator popped up in my ally’s territory which was really annoying.

"WE'VE COME TO DEVOUR..."
*GASP*
"YOUR SAVINGS!"
*Sigh of relief*
In a Stellaris galaxy where the sentient butterflies or Geiko Geckos tend to be purifiers, that is a all too common reaction...

Corporate Motto: "Stay Hungry!"
"Stay Hungry for Sucess!" - correction of the PR department

I had to push the poor, innocent, AI a little further while getting some screenshots for my AI Trade Valuation bug report. I suspect, after a certain point, energy credits are just completely worthless, and you are only limited by how many monthly energy credits you can support throwing to the AI, to devalue them. So for your viewing pleasure (if broken Stellaris is your thing):

Or better yet, if you are trying to buy alloys in an extreme energy surplus + alloy deficit, scenario.

"Stay Hungry for Success!" - correction of Grammar Purifiers )
Then the Grammere Purifiers better pureify themself. Because I am pretty sure it is a "correction from the Grammar Purifiers":

I'd like to know the logistics of restoring that one later on! :D
You know the issue with saving that "Gas Giant Ship"?
Now picture the gas giant undergoing fusion! Things get wierd from there.

Not as wierd as Hawkins Astronaut, but still wierd.
