Probably not a Goat, either.

Could you not dirty up my threads with reference to the worst films of trilogies? Thanks.

AWESOME!

A 4x space sim that is newer than Alpha Centauri and better than Galactic Civilizations. :3

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Yeah. So among the various features will be properly simulated internal politics in your space Empire, with various factions vying for control. They're hoping it will make the mid/late game more interesting because that's where most 4X fall down. You get to the tipping point where you know you're going to win, but you still have to go through the motions and jump through the hoops to get there.

If they can do splintering factions into their own space dominions that'd be killer.

That's confirmed Erops. They've basically been doing something similar with rebels in their historical strategy games for a while now.

Yeah but I mean, if you have religious zealots revolt in france you aren't suddenly going to have a catholic state form in the outskirts of your country. Most are based somewhat after a realistic nation (scotland wanting out of UK) and not as procedural (Irish celtics wanting out of catholic Ireland, creating two separate irish states rather than a gimped catholic ireland)

I'm hoping for my collectivist space fungoid to have to deal with the individualistic idiots on the outerrealm who are too selfish to see the greater good and bail on my dominion to form their own that I can handle as I wish (be it ignore the fools and let them grow/die, perhaps another dominion takes them under their wing or they join my enemy and suddenly I have a problem)

Ireland doesn't start pagan in EU4. It starts Catholic.
