That’s because you are wrong, Gordon. Wrong in your brain. Unable to detect the miasma, you float along, your tissues corrupting as your oblivious mind gently strokes each seed of horror.
“Trade routes aren’t so bad,” your consciousness rambles. “I love resetting them every few turns.”
“Purple is fantastic. Beats everything but green. Oh look, green!”
“I love choosing ideologies,” you say, bemused. “This one is orange. That’s a little +1 defense right over here on my units I’ll eventually build. Hope those suckers over there don’t expect that, and get that terrible +1 to offense!”
I kid, but really BE is a poison that will turn your brain against itself until you're drooling in the corner, buying loot boxes for a mobile game you didn't even want to play in the first place.
RIP Firaxis, is what I’m trying to say here. I hope I’m not being too dramatic.
I fully expect you’ll be bored by the time you wait a stupid amount of time to complete a ridiculous victory condition. Meanwhile the natural flora will be annoying and contribute nothing to the gameplay, possibly already gone extinct by midgame, and the incessant bothersome turn interruptions by the AI wanting to trade diplo currency will destroy whatever shreds of sanity you have remaining.
Yeah, I do often times think about playing this game too, and just have to remind myself there are better games out there.
I already have the base game, and decided to get the DLC directly from Slitherine, since I had a loyalty coupon. I expected to get a Steam key, but got a link to a download instead.
After downloading I found the installer wouldn’t let me manually set the destination, and it couldn’t find the Steam install, so failed. I tried manually pasting the binaries, documents, and data folder, but now I just get a runtime error on launch.
Any idea how to make the version directly from Slitherine play nice with the Steam version of the game?
If I recall, the Pandora dlc included a wholly revamped AI created by a community member that made the ai challenging and drastically improved the game as a result. Or maybe it needs to be downloaded elsewhere. I really can not remember right now.
