Stellaris grand strategy space game by Paradox discussy thingy thready thingy


#4291

I’ve been playing with a combination of the Glavius AI Mod and the Enhanced AI mod on Commodore lately. This is proving to be something of a challenge.


#4292

That’s great to hear. I’ll be sure to snag those mods.


#4293

Thanks for the info. Hopefully later this week I’ll get a chance to play.


#4294

Oh my bad, I could’ve linked to them much earlier. smacks forehead


#4295

For my part, I wouldn’t have trouble finding them (though it’s nice to post links). I just appreciated the hands-on feedback.


#4296

So if I:

  • declare war on another empire
  • make claim on all his systems
  • easily destroy all his fleet and conquer his planets
  • and then watch both our war scores sloooowly creep up (over 13+ years) but he does not surrender and I can’t get him to accept

Does that mean I made too many claims? IE should I break out my claims over 2+ wars?


#4297

Is the target empire part of a federation? Or maybe in an alliance? There are supposed to surrender if they are completely occupied and have no allies in the war.


#4298

Not necessarily, depending on which recent patch you are on, there is something wonky (again) with warscore calculations. From what I have read, it isn’t factoring in planet occupation.

Once the other guy hits 100, you can usually force it to end in a “white peace” where you keep everything you have claimed and have occupied at that point.


#4299

Hopefully they start having some automated tests at some point.


#4300

Really, where’s the fun in that? ;)


#4301

And I thought QT3 was full of grognards!
White peace means there are no gains for anyone… which I think would still be useful in the game instead of having to trade systems to end the war.


#4302

I thought it was everything you’ve occupied? Claims are irrelevant for the status quo peace.


#4303

If you occupy something you haven’t claimed, it reverts at the status quo. That I know.


#4304

I think I’ve tried this on 2.02 and 2.04beta and I couldn’t get these jerks to capitulate. Maybe I’ll just hold off until a new patch is released.


#4305

For anyone else interested here’s a 20+part lets play of the current version of the game with someone’s idea of the worst race on the hardest difficulty.


#4306

So when I re-examined my old save, I realized I had missed invading one of his inhabited worlds. So this was a Scott error, not a game error.

After I won the war I decided to exterminate all their population and the entire galaxy hates me. Oooops!


#4307

Distant Stars, with 50% more anomalies to detect.

#4308

Never quite 100%


#4309

That’s funny but it misses the fact that with every new release it moves backwards a bit until they’ve patched it to move it forward


#4310

Got round to this, quite enjoying it. Does anyone know how to conquer enemy systems, rather than planets? I made a claim on it as my war goal, and have cleared it of opposition… how do I get anyone to notice :/
