You automatically build an outpost. I think you need to upgrade to starbase from within the build tab. Not sure whether it’s available at the start or requires tech though.


#3877

This is the case, yes. It’s part of the expansion, rather than the free update.


#3878

Yup, I saw that and edited my post just as you typed yours. Thanks. :)


#3879

I see what you’re doing here, and it made me LOL.


#3880

I was unaware there were mods! And Star Trek none the less! Oh man… my free time…


#3881

You are so screwed now! Tons and tons of mods out there. Time to retire early, @lordkosc.


#3882

If you want to save a few dollars on the Apocalypse expansion several sites (WinGameStore, MacGameStore, Game Billet, Fanatical, DLGamer) are all selling it for less than $17.


#3883

Did they not update the tutorial in the game?

LOL!


#3884

Fanatical in particular gets an extra discount with code LUNAR8 ($15.63)


#3885

By now it’s a Paradox tradition! ;)


#3886

Poor tutorials. The cannon fodder of progress.


#3887

Actually Stellaris has a pretty good tutorial/guide. Don’t know if it was updated though.


#3888

Yes, it does look like the Tutorial was updated.


#3889

2.0 is good fun so far, although I feel the changes will become much more evident mid and late game, early game didn’t ever have many problems. I think I like the change of system borders, it definitely makes the early game feel slower yet more strategic.


#3890

I was looking at the achievements, and it is amazing that 74% of game owners haven’t even colonized a planet. I guess most people haven’t even played the game?


#3891

I’ve owned it for almost an entire year, and just played my first game this week. :)

Also achievements are only given out in Ironman mode, perhaps people just want more than 1 save.

Also there are probably a ton of Humble Monthly owners.


#3892

Or they use mods. I have a custom name list that invalidates achievements by itself for whatever reason.


#3893

I’ve played a couple hundred hours, but don’t play in Ironman, so thus no achievements… but i can assure you that i’ve colonized a few planets :)


#3894

No, it’s just that you only get achievements if you play Ironman.

Edit: I see it was already answered, oops!


#3895

Yeah, I forgot about that. Okay, makes more sense now. :)
