I think I need to turn up the difficulty of the AI as every time I play by midgame I can comfortably roll over all the dumb xenophobes who don't want to make alliances, and the others are generally not avaricious enough to have matched my massive expansion and resource accquisition.

I'm curious to see if I can make a "tall" empire work (occupy minimal territory but make use of the orbital habitat ascension perk and megastructures/ringworlds) and take advantage of the fact that the fewer colonies your empire has the easier it is to unlock traditions and ascend. 
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Well **** you two just made me buy this.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Would you guys call this DLC or an expansion pack? Same with the EU4 releases.

Is Paradox giving you a bit more bang for your DLC buck or do we just not even consider it DLC?

tbh i think the term "expansion pack" sounds a bit antiquated these days? like i never really used the term for anything other than the sims games anyway, really

i'd just call it all DLC

Yeah I agree. But I wish expansion packs would make a comeback.

It kinda feels like a civ expansion, adding some new ways to play the game, adding some new systems, fixing stuff.
My current game I'm going full robo lovers, started with the robo tech unlocked from the start, and pushed torwards tech and the robo ascension perks.

It seems kinda hard to diplomacy with people unless they lik you from the start, not sure what I can do to make them less hostile other than just giving them free ****.
Even then, the only people I could get anything out of so far liked me from the start, and all the people who are grumpy kind of keep falling off.

As a result, I'm just kind of sitting in a corner in midgame, just minding my own business while everyone else is going to war.
Still having a bit of fun with it, but midgame isnt entirely fixed by any means.

Really want to try a hivemind race, or a xeno purging race. Those both sound really fun.

So for multiplayer stellaris games, is it possible to save and then resume at another time? Because I would be totally ok with having some semi-regular GS stellaris sessions.

It depends on whether Corvette spam is still a viable strategy because people like me certain people tend to abuse them and ruin the game for everyone else.

That's been fixed for a while.

Corvettes are no longer the only ship size worth building. Destroyers do a good job of messing up corvettes now and generally speaking the four ship sizes all have much better defined roles. Different weapon types now also fill somewhat different roles, particularly torpedos.
