I'm not entirely sold on how useful happiness is. Started a warlike campaign recently with no happiness modifiers, and though I haven't really started to do any SERIOUS conquering, the stuff I have is just fine.

Suppose it'll be tested once I sink my teeth into someone else.

I saw eropS' post and set up an Irenic Democracy and now I'm well into endgame in a federation, gradually expanding into a number of synth-only colonies. Synths are awesome. Happiness is definitely pretty useful. Almost all of my pops have a +20% productivity increase.

I got the swarm disaster again, but it's a ring galaxy and they arrived in a very narrow section between two fallen empires. Pretty hilarious, they've been stuck there for decades. Since only one disaster can happen per game, I can have sentient AI with no worries.

Planning on getting all the tech, finding a nice stable resource base, and then leaving my federation and just running train on the whole galaxy.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Happiness over 90% is pretty freaking crazy useful if you can achieve it empire wide with habitability research and such.

I also got the 15% happiness for all pops event. So with spiritualist, too, I get a raw +40% happiness. It's pretty dumb.

I think my game bugged cause I don't think I have fallen empires.

Rise I'd say you need to conquer more to see if unhappiness has a real negative. IDK yet tbh.

Synths are for quitters, biological foreva
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I've been playing hyperdrive FTL only galaxy setting. I think this is one of the better ways to play the game. It gives the map much more importance, as chokepoint systems and other things come into play. You also don't have to worry about different FTL out of your allies, or bugs that might come from Wormhole.

idk, it's better imo, i'd highly recommend trying it if you feel the map needs to be more important.

That's the advanced setting, right? I'm playing a game right now on that mode and it is a lot better.

It's fantastic, but was released with a ton of glitches.

Also, enemies-of-enemies automatically give military access. So if the USSR and Germany are both at war with China, expect SS units to vacation in Siberia as the German AI attacks through it.
