Zebunisher: i agree on revenge
Featherweight_: Bubbles is fun
Radyin: IIRC, Bubbles is en route to the alien armada all alone.
mtvcdm: Sometimes it's not as fun if it's too easy. Sometimes it's fun to fight through a comeback.
Featherweight_: Don't when soon get to make more bubbles?

capt_canada924: Have either of you gotten into the other paradox grand strategy games? Eu4, ck2 and hoi4?
mercano82: What is going on in the Yuhltann system? That is a lot of resources to mine.
viinnaa2point0: @ectoBiologist64 babe das gay
incredulouspasserby: @ectoBiologist64 nice username
withr: you can pay them to attack others though
mrMorphius: Do you have a flyswatter, preferably one encrusted with many fly guts to slap them with?
ectoBiologist64: haha yeah @incredulouspasserby , it's what happens when you read homestuck at the same age you're making all your account names
TacitusVigil: I saw that episode of Voyager. It was a season finale. Kappa
Hingadora: Was the giant skeleton next to a pot of petunias?
incredulouspasserby: I'm lucky I waited a few years but also my compliments were sincere
control_rig: That planetary siege will make for an excellent historic movie. Then the Sloth gaming industry will overuse the setting.
Featherweight_: hows research coming along?
ectoBiologist64: aw, thanks
ArkhamArchivist: Healing, probably
withr: i like that they upgraded the precursor systems to be useful if they weren't the cybrex ringworld
I_Am_Clockwork: More to gain enough power to never let anyone walk over us again
I_Am_Clockwork: time to turtle up
TacitusVigil: So now we're going to become Revanchist Sloths?

mtvcdm: LRRbot, what's your best military advice?
mtvcdm: !quote
LRRbot: Quote #1048: "Life is irrelevant. Cards are good." —Alex [2015-11-06]
Amentur: There is debris to learn from
MilkInBag: good evening C&C
coelopteryx: as an aside, turtle-sloths sounds like a great atla universe creature
Laserbeaks_Fury: So are these folks designed to be an offshoot of your race, or is it just an amazing coincidence?
Rourke9: I've been playing stellaris a lot because of this talking sim. Thanks for making a week of being sick easier!
ectoBiologist64: i love it when a plan comes together
SpyCactus: Are you cutting down rainforests again?
SpyCactus: Stop deforesting the planets!
SpyCactus: You are sloths, you should like forests
DeafMints: @LoadingReadyRun Dont forget the ancient race planet
control_rig: "Sub-sloths"
control_rig: I love you guys
DeafMints: You need to get the 15 of everything system right?
Featherweight_: a fleet of bubbles would be very good
DeafMints: But the resources are always worth it
ectoBiologist64: chonky
mrMorphius: I mentally parsed that as "Sub slots" and I'm so glad to learn the correct phrasing control_rig
DeafMints: in the ancient system systems
Rourke9: I had another empire take the progenitor from me once
Rourke9: it spawned within their borders
viinnaa2point0: @ectoBiologist64 *chomky
withr: AI can't being begin a precursor chain
Rourke9: but it can take the system once its discovered
SpyCactus: Prooooobably want a space fortress next to that wormhole
SpyCactus: Just in case
LordShadner: but can they spawn 10 combat units as soon as war is declared? Kappa
ContingentCat: declared war? how rude
WeedenProject: So I finally decided to give the star trek mod for stellaris a go, and I am sad to see that Borg Cubes are way too slow to be that useful lrrAWW
I_Am_Clockwork: what I want is a game like this for the Battletech universe
TacitusVigil: @WeedenProject Star Trek mod you say...
SpyCactus: @WeedenProject Can you use them as siege weapons?
DeafMints: You can get them to fight each other by giving one of them a system right next to each other
SpyCactus: Target places they HAVE to defend?
DeafMints: and have the caesis baeli for them
SmashTCG: @LoadingReadyRun you stay over there, we stay over here, and We good
SwordintheSpud: love to see as many folks as possible playing grand strategy. Have you seen anything about the new update, its changing EVERYTHING.
mercano82: Xenophobes: Untied in hatred of other species.
mercano82: Heh, untied. That's great
Reecer6: Xenophobes like other xenophobes because they don't understand *not* being xenophobic and it's comforting to their worldview to see you confirm them.
incredulouspasserby: So I picked up Stellaris again last week during the stream. Things I have finally come to acknowledge: I am bad at and do not enjoy 4X games
WeedenProject: @TacitusVigil yeah, if you check the top rated mods on steam, you should see it

incredulouspasserby: I loved exploring early game and then.....others showed up.
withr: gengis khan was born
Reecer6: They're like "Oh, but they're the good ones, they contribute to scciety."
TacitusVigil: @WeedenProject Cameron and Cori have really sold me on Steallaris. Really want to get it next time it's on sale. That kind of seals it. :D
Radyin: I'm looking forward to the console version of Stellaris.
HoloTheWiseWolf_: i think they time out themselfs as well
ectoBiologist64: crisitunities
SpyCactus: Having a Great Space Wall sounds like the thing you need to defend against marauding khans
ArcOfTheConclave: it causes interesting times
HoloTheWiseWolf_: so you dont have to interact with them
ectoBiologist64: im going to use that
withr: i had a game once when the marudars spawned between 2 fallen empires and nothing else. they died quickly
Zu_o: @TacitusVigil it's really very good
TacitusVigil: Ah, so you Napoleon them.
drkarmicknight: Golden Horde style.
chickenace11: what the heck I had the tab open but no sound was playing so i missed the start
theneatestburrito: Same here, ace.

SachielOne: That chunk is a stellar sery so radioactive that nothing can live there.nu
SpyCactus: Because that sounds geed
OriginalGarwulf: Well, you can TRY to go through the super-massive black hole at the centre of the galaxy, but it doesn't tend to be a good idea.
drkarmicknight: Black Hole Observatory is great fun.
HoloTheWiseWolf_: and then the titan platforms that are real good
franklinrhodes: which ship mod is that?
Zu_o: I believe that's base game reptilian?
SpyCactus: @LoadingReadyRun would you say that you are content to "Hang out"?
CptMuddles: Notably, a big enough Khan-empire can end up spawning like 6 Khanates.
drkarmicknight: Subspace Jumps!
CptMuddles: Or he can just die to a prostitute, I think it was?
kitsunestudios: Twitch compression is doing some wierd things to the bg music right now.
kitsunestudios: At least for me
RubreDucky: Have any rumors when the next update will be out?
incredulouspasserby: Same on the music front. I quite like it, actually.
drkarmicknight: Oh, so the Great Khan has to deal with Clan Demands for territory?
LordShadner: isn't that a sign of a leviathan?
MaddogM: was that "our fleets will be mighty" or "muddy"? :P
Reecer6: ooh, the saramore system. i love sisery susiness
ArkhamArchivist: So how would we uplift the Proto-Sloths?
LordShadner: not the rocks, the open system
FerociousPeach: @RubreDucky no word yet, but there's some kind of announcement event on the 24th
SpyCactus: Have you checked to make sure they're not tribbles?
withr: so are your alien pokemon cute or used for blood sports?
SpyCactus: The fuzzy pets, that is
FerociousPeach: @withr why not both? :)
drkarmicknight: The choke points are looking pretty good from where I'm looking, 3 or 4 points of entry?
JonnyGlitch: Hi Cameron! Hi Cori! Hi Chat!
ArcOfTheConclave: The cutest bloodsport
Mithgar: Do you have someone going to explore that Carinore (sp?) star in the back of your empire?
kitsunestudios: You could build another 20 ships to keep your military competitive
Radyin: How many of your space neighbors are just a variety of K sounds?
SpyCactus: @LoadingReadyRun Is it possible to build defense platforms and then mothball them, or put them into storage, or something until you need them?
Dandinstorm12: 50<100
SpyCactus: Oh, well that's sad
CptMuddles: I wish trading for food worked. Excess food doesn't boost your pop growth at all. :(
JonnyGlitch: yeah platforms are either there or not
acuilador: Mothball, no. Downgrade, yes, but you lose all that you invested iun it. No refunds
withr: defense paltforms are basically ships without intersteller drives
RubreDucky: I made two variants of frigates and destroyers. One frigate is a gunship and the other is a torpedo boat. Then one destroyer as a gunship and another as a flak.
Reecer6: @CptMuddles the bourgeoisie must be happy though.
drkarmicknight: Mothballing is a feature for when Stellaris gets to reach 90% Victoria 2.
Kamotetop: you could raise your reserves @CptMuddles
Jondare: CptMuddles yeah it does, just not very much
CptMuddles: It doesn't show in the UI is all.
CptMuddles: Though it does mean you can sell off your excess food to Xuracorp et al. at no cost?
acuilador: @RubreDucky What level do you make your Point Defense ships? Destroyers or Cruisers?
JonnyGlitch: I love it when empires schism into smaller ones it's cool
CptMuddles: Spawning new empires is really cool and should really happen more often.
acuilador: Cause I make Righter cruisers as full Point Defense ships, but I'm not sure if I shoulkd do that or just make a bunch of PD destroyers
JonnyGlitch: wait was that a shattered world? I don't think I've seen one of those before
Phailhammer: JonnyGlitch: Paradox games tend to be good for that.
acuilador: *Fighter
incredulouspasserby: hey uh. I just had a thought. How does one win this game?
Featherweight_: farming
incredulouspasserby: Survive?
viinnaa2point0: help, cat nom my hand
drkarmicknight: @CptMuddles The problem is that if empires are TOO unstable the player is left with just a bunch weaker empires since the player is inherently better at management than ai.
Phailhammer: I don't think you "win" Paradox games so much as you "finish" them.
SpyCactus: Do you still need recycling? I thought that was a war measure
Phailhammer: Then move on to the next campaign.
CptMuddles: @drkarmicknight Yeah, that's a problem. Though I've had some minor success with mods (for rebellions and junk) that don't seem too awful.
kitsunestudios: @incredulouspasserby: You can form a federation, conquer your neighbours or purge the galaxy
JonnyGlitch: spend some of dem tasty tasty minerals
Featherweight_: build some zoos?
CyberAsp: I'd say you win by surviving the endgame crisis. There are a couple half-baked "win conditions" but they're supposedly getting replaced at some point.
drkarmicknight: @CptMuddles it really is just a design decision, like how in EU IV Ming went from exploding to very powerful from patch-to-patch. Splinter states are really cool, though.
CptMuddles: I can't wait for them to implement some real wincons.
ectoBiologist64: *insert zoo line from Meet the Soldier*
Nigouki: is 15K minerals a hard cap or can you build more storage?
CptMuddles: I believe the intent is to allow for stuff like "we've ascended to a higher state of being" without forcing everyone else to lose the game (in the case of multiplayer)?
JonnyGlitch: I've never encountered that event before is that new?
drkarmicknight: each level of minerals increases storage by 5k, I think.
kitsunestudios: I've won _once_ with my pacifist xenophile foxes, joined enough of a federation to own half the galaxy
SpyCactus: I mean, if you don't find them, they might find you
ArcOfTheConclave: Maybe just the religion came from space.
JonnyGlitch: better to find than be found?
SachielOne: 451
OriginalGarwulf: Am I the only one who immediately thought of an original series BSG Basestar upon hearing "Star Fortress"?
ectoBiologist64: cam no!
JonnyGlitch: very good that both wormholes are in your territory
CptMuddles: One fewer wormhole to build a bastion-station around!
franklinrhodes: does anyone know why i cant see whats in the system next to my fleet (its a neighbouring empires system that im at war with)
CyberAsp: I once got a victory screen because I built too many space habitats, and therefore owned more than 40% of the habitable planets.
ArkhamArchivist: Our empire is a torus?
JonnyGlitch: @OriginalGarwulf not just the original I've only seen the remake and I thought the same
kitsunestudios: Handy!
ectoBiologist64: did....did we just find cthulhu?
SpyCactus: I think we may have found Rhylleh
Serifina: Ooooh, the Shrines of the Old Ones events. Fun stuff. :D
drkarmicknight: Sounds like a lovely episode of Space Sloths.
JonnyGlitch: rikity rikity rekt
OriginalGarwulf: For those who haven't seen BSG, this is what I'm taking about: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cylon_Basestar
MostCallMe__Tim: I started a stellaris game recently thanks to you guys. I went for a robot race called the DAAR (Diverse Agricultural Acquisition Rovers), farmbots who acheived sentience. How do you feel about robot races?
Featherweight_: what if our numbers were big?
OriginalGarwulf: Stellaris is on my wish list right now.
drkarmicknight: I am so sad that I am too excited for the death of tiles (by the coward, Martin Anward), to really get into a current game.

JonnyGlitch: are you building platforms in the defense tab of the starports?
SpyCactus: Guns are good, but so are fleets
Zyme86: How close are you to gate building?
SpyCactus: Maybe don't have fleet repair base RIGHT on the front line though
JonnyGlitch: cos those platforms really benefit from being modified in the ship builder
SpyCactus: Kekaku means plan?
Zyme86: And what does keikaku mean?
Zyme86: Kappa
ectoBiologist64: "our scientists are finding evidence of deities? crazy! lemme just put this guy in his new job at the zoo"
viinnaa2point0: Translator's note: Keikaku means plan
ArcOfTheConclave: TL. note. "Keikaku means plan" is a meme.
viinnaa2point0: @ectoBiologist64 lmao
JonnyGlitch: that's dece amount of unity
Zyme86: you might get pushed further to step 2 spiritualist?
ArkhamArchivist: but are we Fanatical Spiritualists?
withr: you would become fanatic spirit but lose inward perfectionist
TacitusVigil: We could be *more* fanatical? Hallowed are the Ori? Kappa
steven1913: Dear Cameron, since your last stream i may or may not have put almost 50 hours into stellaris on my own time so... thanks i guess?
Dhaunayne: I prefer lower-case kappa
SpyCactus: Forward, but slowly. We're sloths after all
CyberAsp: The fourth choice lets you have some kind of revolution, doesn't it?
drkarmicknight: JUMP
JonnyGlitch: I did not know that Star Control: Origins was not allowed to use any of the original races or story points, it stayed very true to what I remember from SC2
SpyCactus: Plasma seems fun
JonnyGlitch: new ships are always my first pick
SpyCactus: Cruisers seem like a good thing to put plasma guns on
drkarmicknight: And slightly larger fleets are never wrong.
ArkhamArchivist: Ooh, what are the Cruiser class ships going to be called?
SpyCactus: Trinary system? Cool
ectoBiologist64: @LoadingReadyRun sorry to come in misinformed, but, what's the long-game win condition here? i assume conquest isn't the only way to win?
Featherweight_: the durnien class will be unstoppable
Koshindan: That's early.
SpyCactus: Psychic sloths!
JonnyGlitch: yeah become psychics!
someusername5: yes psionic theory please
Amentur: HELL YES lrrDARK
drkarmicknight: What IS a win condition?
ArkhamArchivist: Psloths
withr: precursor for psi ascension
JonnyGlitch: have you taken that ascension perk?
abaoa_qu: Newtypes!
Boros_Burger_Battalion: ^^
SpyCactus: Miiiiiiiiiiind buuuuuuuuullets
drkarmicknight: Get Psionics, Dip Face into the Shroud, bring ruin tot the galaxy. (with my favorite crisis)
Boros_Burger_Battalion: Our Sloth souls are no longer sucked down by gravity
TacitusVigil: Stellaris: Scanners edition
JonnyGlitch: Do you wish to become Concrete Endless or Virtual Endless?
Laserbeaks_Fury: When you're a slow as a sloth, you have to thinkwaaaay ahead about things
mercano82: Psyonic Sloths sounds like a band. Punk maybe?
Zebunisher: and so we started our journey to become a class 30 singularity
FlannelShirtEnthusist: more shoegaze
Featherweight_: how are snail friends?

jubale1: Tortoise Speeddemon
SpyCactus: Chashew
ArcOfTheConclave: Durian is nice
NW9k: Heck, Cashew is good @SpyCactus
Zu_o: Great foes indeed
JonnyGlitch: Brazil nuts are the worst to get into
chickenace11: Cashews
Koshindan: Hex Nut Cruisers.
Featherweight_: overly fibrous stalk class cruiser
NathanJay_GA: Wingnut!
CyberAsp: The titans are just "rock". They probably have some kind of food inside, but they're harder to crack than any other nut.
zerg539: Brazil nut if there are carriers
Zu_o: I like @Featherweight_ 's idea
Laserbeaks_Fury: Nutty McHardfruit
control_rig: Cruiser mcCruiserface?
NW9k: @Featherweight_ what is overly fibrous thorlarW

Zoloreaper: lrrWOW lrrWOW
ArcOfTheConclave: Cactus Class?
ContingentCat: how rude
SpyCactus: Cactus class? I feel personally attacked
viinnaa2point0: *gasp* rood
Mithgar: Perhaps we shift to a rock-type? Cruiser - Dolomite (rather hard granite-like)
red_shoes_jeff: Give 'em what-for, Cammander!
NW9k: @Mithgar why not up the ante to bedrock class?
SpyCactus: Time to start mobilizing, it will take a while for us to get ready
SpyCactus: Since we're sloths
ArcOfTheConclave: fear campaign?!
Mithgar: I feel the Bedrocks are the Base Defenses
JonnyGlitch: use them in the war
Koshindan: That sound be said in the Dave's Spokeman character.
Featherweight_: send them after mushroom jerks
Amentur: If we want to become more xenophobic, ArcOfTheConclave
BrindleBoar: but would they eat a bunch more of you if given the opportunity? still yes.
chickenace11: but the mushrooms look like saprolings and i like them
withr: ok so ts a long time before we become psychic then
Nigouki: yeah, send them after the mushrooms :D
red_shoes_jeff: "Yeah, we DID eat a bunch of you! That's how you KNOW we know our shit!"
mercano82: What kind of keyboard is it?
red_shoes_jeff: The clicky kind!
SpyCactus: Mechanical keyboard by the sound of it
Rockario: Sort by opinion?
TacitusVigil: Saute those mushrooms!
ArmadilloAL: Is there really any of kind of keyboard?
withr: will ou make mushroom stew?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Bust an ass in their caps
TacitusVigil: Oooh, a nice mushroom bisque....of revenge!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Smol snale <3
ArmadilloAL: (Yes, but only because I can't use the mechanical kind while my wife is in the room.)
ectoBiologist64: yeehaw
viinnaa2point0: good bois!!!!!1
ContingentCat: i'm getting thesis work flashbacks, more research, just always more research
SpyCactus: Is your goal to be the most inoffensive species in the galaxy?
Reecer6: oh man it's like its chewing on wheat
ectoBiologist64: take me to snurch (snail church)
Rockario: What I really appreciate is that if you sort by power-level, you can tell who is Equivalent-but-better and who is Equivalent-but-worse
ArcOfTheConclave: Space snails? Nice!
kakmize: Whelp I just bought Stellaris because of you guys.
Amentur: I do find it sad that there is only an Insult button but no Compliment button
chickenace11: why don't you name the new cruiser class after a mushroom seeing how those are the people that you will be crushing
e_bloc: who needs friends when you don't have enemies?
SpyCactus: Amanita class cruiser?
red_shoes_jeff: They like us more than the dudes shooting at us.
ectoBiologist64: @chickenace11 alternatively, what kills mushrooms?
ArkhamArchivist: Flee before our Truffle Class Warships?
mercano82: They don''t like you, but they like not being invaded.
withr: no wars of agression
SpyCactus: Ants?
SpyCactus: Formic class cruisers?
Rockario: We're pacifists, right? Wars of expansion are a little counter to that whole idea
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Well first you get your chancellor to fabricate a claim...
SpyCactus: Moderately less slow responders?
chickenace11: @ectoBiologist64 roundup or vinegar
drkarmicknight: You chose to justfy a war and hope you don't get badboy. Or you have enough jingoism.
Rockario: They want to try our sloth-y snacks
SpyCactus: Money in the bank, or fries in the fridge?
Mithgar: You know you can increase the amount of food you can stockpile, correct
Mithgar: ?
SpyCactus: Which is greater?
jubale1: fries in the fridge seems like negative value
kaladinar: Can I get a shake with the fries
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Is this game... easier or harder than CKII? Because CKII wrinkles my brain
mtvcdm: Fries are only good heated once.
viinnaa2point0: holy fuck
mtvcdm: Leftover fries are the worst.
SpyCactus: Space jellyfish??? :(
CyberAsp: Easier to understand I'd say
CptMuddles: Easier, probably.
ectoBiologist64: it's a narcomoeba!!!
mtvcdm: Submit to the tentacles.
CyberAsp: It's a fairly straightforward 4x sort of game
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Big Stupid Jellyfish
SpyCactus: Protip, heat them in the oven, not the microwave
ectoBiologist64: someone's playing Dredge
TheManaLeek: so uh it's an eldrazi?
SpyCactus: Makes them much tastier
withr: you screwed now
TacitusVigil: Prism class Cruiser. It breaks light. Kappa
drkarmicknight: Oh shit, Wormhole just got a Skull level monster.
mtvcdm: !advice
LRRbot: Throw your face at enemies.
JonnyGlitch: bravely run away!
coelopteryx: yeah the tech for leftover fries is the oven or toaster oven
kaladinar: @ectoBiologist64 Narcomeba was my promo for GRN prerelease. . . #feelsbad
coelopteryx: still not as good as fresh, but they're thoroughly decent
Rockario: The Wraith approaches our stronghold at it's peril
withr: ask curators how you will fare
ectoBiologist64: @kaladinar that's the spirit of Andrew Garfield, telling you to buy a playset of Golgari Grave-Troll
RedGriffin42: big scary jellyfish of light
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Are those enclaves or just uncolonized space?
kaladinar: @ectoBiologist64 Good thing I have three mana with two blue sources to cast Disallow.
SpyCactus: Throwing plasma willy nilly sounds fun
kaladinar: I am a dirty control player
Sati90: Ummm are we even close to dealing with the light fish?
Rockario: Actually yeah, if it's heading straight for that red dwarf we just needd to converge our fleets.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Aw, those sloths are so cute <3
SpyCactus: What's in the dubious abyss?
Rockario: Should we maybe ask the curators how they think we'll fair against it
Rockario: ?
skiplives: Railgun?
CyberAsp: Yeah, the curators will tell you if it's going to eat you or not
chickenace11: blanchwood
SpyCactus: Pebble class
Mr_Dirty: new plan. kill the enemy?
ectoBiologist64: @LoadingReadyRun name the Cruisers after the Wraith; it's the biggest thing you've seen so far.
chickenace11: what about naming the new class Doran
DonHewgodooko: so looking forward to the next big update!
WeedenProject: Have you got access to space torpedoes yet?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Corundum
Zu_o: It's a very gneiss ship
I_Am_Clockwork: Geode?
SileeOneNow: Quartz
NathanJay_GA: Stone class, then?
Mr_Dirty: pyrite
Rourke9: Outcrop
ContingentCat: rocks are good
jamesk902: If you're going for rock, menhir?
SpyCactus: Sparkly stone
ectoBiologist64: Tungsten!
SileeOneNow: Menhir
I_Am_Clockwork: Boulder Class
snowb0und: What about a 'Geode'?
kaladinar: Sulfer
NW9k: Archeolith Class
SpyCactus: Jackfruit
Amentur: Obsidian? Or would that be more a Battleship
ectoBiologist64: Lead is pretty inedible
kaladinar: Space baby
someusername5: 'inedible rock' class cruiser
TheBearBee: Have you considered, and I'm just throwing this out there, deploying the spiders?

Leafwind104: so whatcha gonna call the Titan?
SpyCactus: Hahahahahahaha @Gamshyd
chickenace11: you could have gone for Canada class destroyer
I_Am_Clockwork: I find the fleet organization, size restrictions, etc. to be hard to grasp
Amentur: It's not heading our planned way lrrFRUMP
ectoBiologist64: xenophilic = alien-fuckers
StalePieceofWhiteBread: "I wanna suck alien dick"
CyberAsp: They're adding crossbreeding in for xenophiles in the next version
StalePieceofWhiteBread: @ectoBiologist64 PURGE THE XENO
CyberAsp: It's a terrifying thing
chesul: how dare they hate us for hating everyone else!
Rockario: Uhhh, something came out of the wormhole
sithenin: You should name a ship sepulcher
StalePieceofWhiteBread: @chesul lol
DonHewgodooko: you'll be able to breed new interbred species in the new update with combined traits

StalePieceofWhiteBread: "Happy fun tube"
JonnyGlitch: Toob of learning!
snowb0und: It's Rama!
withr: star trek tos movie
TacitusVigil: It's Cylindrical Traveler?
RedGriffin42: The tube of truth!
snowb0und: That's literally just Rama!
drkarmicknight: The Thinking Sloth's Cylinder.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Praise the leader
SpyCactus: Naval capacity
SpyCactus: More space boats
I_Am_Clockwork: fleet command is also quite good iirc?
drkarmicknight: Fleet Command Limit and Naval Capacity are both really good.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: >naval capacity Get big belly button
I_Am_Clockwork: idk fleet limits always mess me up
cuzigotprime: what if it's just a giant hamster wheel
red_shoes_jeff: Does it assist their research by devouring the planet and assimilating all its knowledge?
cuzigotprime: space hamster wheel
WeedenProject: Do you have a spare ascension perk slot now that you have psionics?
kitsunestudios: Maybe send a ship to harass it and retreat?
Amentur: Do we still try our mettle against the wraith outside of a red Dwarf?
WeedenProject: Cause that would let you do some cool stuff :)
SpyCactus: In the face of danger, we shall use relentless and unjustified optimism!
Featherweight_: can you kite it?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: That binch of a jelly
drkarmicknight: The Wraith is much like a natural disaster.
Rockario: There *are* a couple red dwarfs after the next star
JonnyGlitch: just guns arn't enough for ports, defense platforms are critical
BloodnBullets: I dont suppose theres a way to steer the red narcomoeba?
ectoBiologist64: wait a minute
ectoBiologist64: the wraith has the same weakness as superman!
FerociousPeach: why is there a fleet in your territory?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Big Shooting Brick
Rockario: FTL inhibitors are more important than they seem, at first glance. I once had an entire war take place with the enemy fleets just flying past my fortresses
StalePieceofWhiteBread: That's what they called me in college
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Which was weird because I've never played basketball
FerociousPeach: time to send that idle construction ship into the devastated space to rebuild
TheTrueWowo: evening peeps
kitsunestudios: Ok, catch you on the VOD, i need to head home and get food!
Rockario: Maybe after it destroys our Ulassian fortress it'll go eat the mushrooms.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:13:55.
TacitusVigil: Cameron is totally a cop, aren't they?
BloodnBullets: sweet, the fuzz is gone. time to not take a break
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Hosts are gone, tell everyone how much you love everyone
Serifina: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet.
TacitusVigil: Coming in Fall 2018, Cori is..."Banana Cop"!
Serifina: What do you mean "the fuzz is gone"? We're ALWAYS watching.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: I love you guys and I wish I could watch more often
argentaria: lrrSPOOP Serifina
Amentur: FTL Inhibitors (especially planet based) are great ways of stopping and catching up to enemy fleets
Serifina: @argentaria Muahahahahahahahaha

Serifina: Ah hah.
Mystaira: prenDund
chickenace11: truth cam
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Cameron did a lie
jamesk902: That does seem like a good use of a break.
BrindleBoar: what kind of monster leaves chocolate unfinished
TacitusVigil: It takes two to lie: One to lie, and one to listen.
Amentur: Eating an enire muffin? It's what I did lrrAWESOME
ArkhamArchivist: So uh, what's with that gap with no system in it within our space?
Serifina: I will feel sad for me instead, because I do not have a chocolate bar.
mercano82: Dark or milk chocolate?
libraryrulesrule: more stellaris!
argentaria sends seri an e-choco bar
JonnyGlitch: but the only thing better than your own chocolate bar is someone else's chocolate bar!
Mithgar: Hope that Wraith goes to the Mushroom Land
Rourke9: @ArkhamArchivist a matter-destroying beast is wandering through our space
Rockario: But our fortress lrrAWW
drkarmicknight: got to send Sloth disaster relief.
SpyCactus: Red scare, but this time without commies
mercano82: @ArkhamArchivist That's the swath of destruction left by the space amoeba.
TacitusVigil: @SpyCactus The first two red scares didn't have too many communists either. Just a lot of paranoia.
JasoMan1st007: @SpyCactus we don't know that for sure
ArkhamArchivist: Oh, I know that, west of Lessia
CptMuddles: That fortress put up quite a fight!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Did it eat your sloffs?
ArkhamArchivist: east*
libraryrulesrule just subscribed with Twitch Prime. libraryrulesrule subscribed for 3 months in a row!
libraryrulesrule: This game is so addicting! I spent 8 hours playing it last friday.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, libraryrulesrule! (Today's storm count: 96)
Rockario: That was actually pretty good, our fleet might be able to take it?
Amentur: Considering how well the station did, our fleet should do fine?
mercano82: Inthor is a red star system. You could get lucky.
TacitusVigil: Oh, sloth space has a face. I just realized that.
SpyCactus: @TacitusVigil @JasoMan1st007 You had very different reactions and I find it humerous
Mithgar: Silly Construction Dude
red_shoes_jeff: Remember Cam, "The closer we are to danger, the farther we are from harm."
skiplives: Railguns are good - I mean mass drivers are good ... for mining and stuff.
mysticsage1: Is it me or does that section of space look like that scream painting with the holes that alien mad for eyes?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: They have fingers
StalePieceofWhiteBread: So... like, yes?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: I guess
libraryrulesrule: claws
Mithgar: They have opposable ... digits
JonnyGlitch: How do you know our normal sloths arn't aliens?
red_shoes_jeff: They have those long-ass claws.
Papperslappen: The two-toed sloth has at least two toes
kethean: curse you for making me google sloth hands
SpyCactus: Define "hand"
TacitusVigil: Fingers and a thumb. A palm helps?
libraryrulesrule: grippage
red_shoes_jeff: BONES! SKINS!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Talking Simulator "What is a hand"
TacitusVigil: Do *not* remove your fingers.
someusername5: today on talking simulator: hard problems on computer vision
JonnyGlitch: it would technically be a "nummbin"
libraryrulesrule: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:25:11.

SpyCactus: They have claws and a palm and can grab things
Rockario: I didn't realise you could get psionics while being materialists, neat
JonnyGlitch: nubbin*
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Teacher Tube!
NotCainNorAbel: That was very deep for Tuesday
JasoMan1st007: @SpyCactus I mean it attacks anything and thinks anything it meets is theres.
Amentur: Something that can pull a lever with ease?
drkarmicknight: Jointed digits versus non-jointed digits, I would think.
TacitusVigil: All Hail the Tube
SpyCactus: Fun tube!
CptMuddles: @Rockario Nope! It just weights the techs appropriately.
libraryrulesrule: Should I continue watching or study my linear algebra and matrices homework?
Robot_Bones: Would a hand by any other name smell as sweet?
Rourke9: but paws have jointed digits too..
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Did that jelly eat the tube friend?
TacitusVigil: Did it at least give us some whale songs before it left?
JasoMan1st007: @SpyCactus sounds like a neutral evil communist to me!
skiplives: It's like a barrel of monkeys, but without the monkeys.
Mithgar: north of your area
SpyCactus: @JasoMan1st007 fair enough
Mithgar: on the right
ArkhamArchivist: Sounds like Someone Else's Problem now
Talin06: Did anyone else get Star Trek 4 vibe
A_Catastrophic_Success: Rendezvous with the tube. We just have to think of a good name for it.
Mithgar: Oh. My bad
Rockario: Hand v Paw seems like definitions that come from different views. Hands are defined by usage, paws are defined by shape/texture
BloodnBullets: ok just got back, did we kill the red narcomoeba?
Mithgar: Gene Modification Points are always fun ^_^
SpyCactus: First you got rid of the rainforests, not you're scrapping the Tall Trees?
kethean: is that beer or iced coffee ?
Rockario: OR genetic modification
StalePieceofWhiteBread: This reminds me of the difference between the french "Bouche" and "Guelle"
TallBlondePillager: So I keep seeing my friends play Stellaris whenever they're online, and I haven't yet been able to figure out just what makes it so that several of them have 400+ hours on it, anyone able to provide insight?
BloodnBullets: how rude.
libraryrulesrule: @TallBlondePillager That's just paradox games in general. They suck you in and you lose track of time.
Mithgar: Hate it more than Treadmills and Timed Tests
JonnyGlitch: goatse?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: AAAAA
StalePieceofWhiteBread: WHY
JonnyGlitch: @StalePieceofWhiteBread can never be unseen
drkarmicknight: @TallBlondePillager The game's sedate pace and customizability allow for long play times. Like most Paradox games.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME
incredulouspasserby: wait this means you have psionics! what does that mean!
JonnyGlitch: @StalePieceofWhiteBread to be fair Cam did it to us ages ago\
TallBlondePillager: @libraryrulesrule @drkarmicknight This...actually makes a lot of sense. I never really 'clicked' with Paradox games, but I think I see a bit more now, thanks!
Radyin: Cam, do you have a personal ranking of 4X games? If you do, where does Stellaris place on it?
Rockario: There is also a massive amount of content to discover, which keeps getting expanded and changed
Mithgar: Stellaris is also just about the most "Chill" 4x ever
ArkhamArchivist: So what does the 4X refer to/mean?
JonnyGlitch: it will probably place higher for me after the planetary update, as planets were the weakest and annoying late game
Amentur: TallBlondePillager, I'd guess mainly the same reason to play any other 4X game: Make a rough plan for a race/culture and see how it fairs against the computer factions. Stellaris adding a nice Sci-Fi spin on it
Rourke9: well, this was quite the interesting setback just now
amythist: ArkhamArchivist Explore, Expand, Exploit, Exterminate if I remember right
TallBlondePillager: Ooh, it doesn't kill your momentum when you get a setback, that probably helps a lot with player retention
Mithgar: @ArkhamArchivist Explore, Exploit, Expand, Externimate
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Exterminate, exterminate, exterminate and exterminate
Zu_o: @StalePieceofWhiteBread your trashcan is looking lovely today
SpyCactus: Free research
JonnyGlitch: eXtErMiNaTe
SpyCactus: Nice
TallBlondePillager: @Amentur That makes a lot of sense, I guess my ambivalence towards sci-fi and 4X is why I've yet to fall into this metaphorical hole
libraryrulesrule: I'm a expand, expand, expand, expand player. I won't stop until my blob is the biggest blob
StalePieceofWhiteBread: @libraryrulesrule I mean, honestly, same
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Well, I like building tall and researching science
drkarmicknight: I mean, the Red Wraith seems like a good example of a disaster that was manageable, but still would count as a setback in gameplay. There was a plan in place and it never seemed like an impossible task, just a problematic one.
I_Am_Clockwork: Put Robots in smash, you cowards lrrBEEJ
skiplives: My first 4x game offered multiplayer options like local, play-by-email, and play-by-mail - you had to mail a floppy disk to the other person. Mind you Empire was so old it predated the PC
ArcOfTheConclave: experiment on our sloths
StalePieceofWhiteBread: I like going to space in like the 1200s
TacitusVigil: Is the alien substance we discovered edible, and if so, how delicious is it? If it is not edible, how delicious is it?
CyberAsp: Several of the mid- and late-game threats trying to conquer everything have "surrender and plan to rebel later" as a valid strategy
CyberAsp: Which is really neat
ectoBiologist64: LARGE fry
JonnyGlitch: no such thing as toom uch food
Leafwind104: Is it better to just build fleets of one ship type or to vary it within fleets?
e_bloc: supersize me Cam
Koshindan: Overproduction of food increases growth rate.
kinkerbelle: Too much food gives you more growth, but I'd diversify.
Koshindan: But you need to hit stockpile cap first.
CyberAsp: The different ship types have different roles, so you want some of each.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: So Cam, did you name the Sloth Religion Atheism?
JonnyGlitch: bigger numbers win
Radyin: Cruiser is our third military ship type? How many are there in total?
drkarmicknight: Bigger fleet numbers mean More Battleships per square inch.
ectoBiologist64: ah yes, the ancient and time-honored game of "are my numbers bigger than theirs?"
CyberAsp: Above cruisers there are battleships and titans
Reecer6: yeah but they're also really circular
Reecer6: and i love circular countries
drkarmicknight: I can't believe Bloodborn won the war.
someusername5: hire some mercenaries to go hit the bad people?
mercano82: They just took another bite while you were talking.
kinkerbelle: @Radyin 4/5 depending on how much DLC
StalePieceofWhiteBread: I mean obviously they're bad, they're xenos
JonnyGlitch: at least there is a meal between you and most of them
libraryrulesrule: Are there any late game threats like the Khan in CK2, outside of awakened empires?
SpyCactus: Time to build the Space Great Wall?
I_Am_Clockwork: Never bet against Bloodbourne lrrBEEJ
Mithgar: Cam - Can you give your opinion on manual control vs Sector Control in this game?
CyberAsp: And also colossi, which are more doomsday device than ship
ectoBiologist64: man, those guys must be, like, the Dark Souls of space empires
rendelnep: How fairs the algaeinated glory of Mighty Slothdom?
Talin06: And we tastes good
NotCainNorAbel: make peace with the merks?
JonnyGlitch: @Mithgar sectors were a bit of a stopgap to mitigate the terrible late-game planet management, IMO, but you wern't asking for mine
drkarmicknight: what DLC are on for this playthrough?
Talin06: All dlc
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Then they start shooting soft sedimentary rocks: shale guns
Mithgar: @JonnyGlitch Happy to have any and all opinions. I'm curious how things will change with the next update where they change planets completely
drkarmicknight: oh good, apocalypse devices.
JonnyGlitch: @Mithgar me too!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: NOTICE ME TUBE SENPAI
Mithgar: Y'all are like the dumb girl with the sign in the end of the first act of Independence Day
JonnyGlitch: Notice me Toobepai
Zu_o: Mighty tube, we have fuzzy pets we would like a place to run, may we use your circular form!
e_bloc: tube deems you unworthy
StalePieceofWhiteBread: How can we research bigger brains without tube?
e_bloc: cheer200 tube has spoken
JonnyGlitch: tube love kitty
SpyCactus: Could it be that the tube found the sloths a little... slow?
Rockario: They say science isn't religion, but one shiny space-tube comes along and you're all immediately "We must impress the cosmic tube" lrrBEEJ
JonnyGlitch: @SpyCactus out
SpyCactus: Never
BloodnBullets: can we trap the tube on some kind of pipe?
TacitusVigil: (The Tube discovered we had EDM and immediately left)
StalePieceofWhiteBread: "Shits upgraded"
EnvoyOfGoats: Shits upgraded
Talin06: How will we watch space twitch without the tube?!
tubby125: lol
Amentur: Doesn't the tube have a chance of talking to us asking if we want to become sentient?
JonnyGlitch: sounds like she needs a cigarette
Leafwind104: God that's some real English the announcer puts on that
jamesk902: Should a pacifist advisor be that happy about ships being upgraded?
ectoBiologist64: why does "ships upgraded" feel like a euphemism...?
Gobukiller: Yeah, she has to be saying "shitps"
Sati90: You can practically hear the bottom lip bite
JonnyGlitch: red dude's next to you have invasion army's in space
JonnyGlitch: big red flag
JonnyGlitch: armies*
red_shoes_jeff: TUBE-SEMPAIIIIII! <3
ectoBiologist64: first i park my tube
JonnyGlitch: tube knows you're trying too hard
Amentur: doogDance TOOB doogDance
ectoBiologist64: then i fuck my tube
Mithgar: Sir, your tube-dance is entirely sub-par. Please leave the tube-dancing to the experts
TacitusVigil: "We have a created a mighty dish in honor of you, O Tube, that involves stuffing a turkey with a duck with a chicken"
e_bloc: cheer53 if only you hadn't killed all the humpback whales
SpyCactus: I can only assume that the tube dance uses those inflatable dancing advertisement things that flop around
Robot_Bones: Can't walk without rhythm if you don't attract the tube
Chatty_Protagonist: Show the tube what you got!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: lrrSLOTH Enlighten me Tube
JonnyGlitch: you need Beej to do his Dance of the Seven Veils
drkarmicknight: Assist research is really very good.
drkarmicknight: it might be enough to impress the Tube.
e_bloc: hear me out: what you can do is time travel to 1970's san francisco . . .
NotCainNorAbel: @JonnyGlitch but they only have three veils
Gobukiller: 1422 wallaby way, sydney
e_bloc: besides they only have 3 veils
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Gonna be a short dance
viinnaa2point0: HONK HONK HONK HONK
ectoBiologist64: tube be like "hOnK hOnK"
Banrael: They had to tear that building down
TacitusVigil: That was only four veils though!
Robot_Bones: Stupid TOS
ContingentCat: have we found minecraft villagers?

rendelnep: beej only went 3 veils..NEVER go seven veils
SachielOne: For that, you need to donate above $100 per month to the Patreon.

302_Dave: Ok, I'll bite. Caveman looking at the sunset?
Banrael: Being immortal is for chumps
SpyCactus: Far side cartoon
Kaorti: Catch 22 has that guy trying to stay so bored that it feels like he's living forever right?
JonnyGlitch: I'd totally want to live forever
TacitusVigil: So what you're saying Cori is that we get busy living...or we get busy dying? Kappa
I_Am_Clockwork: I feel like our reaction to the tube leaving is exactly why the tube is leaving XD
NW9k: Smells like PJSalt @LoadingReadyRun thorlarWW

TacitusVigil: I assume "uplifting" is doing the exact opposite of the Prime Directive?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: salty
notBrunoAgain: salty, presumably
SpyCactus: It smells like the ocean
kinkerbelle: Salt smells like salt?
Aztren: in my experience, blood?
NW9k: That's deep, Cam. Also like water.
mercano82: It smells like the ocean.
JonnyGlitch: or does water smell like salt?
red_shoes_jeff: It smells like sneezing.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Cameron here with the fucking deep ass
Robot_Bones: You think someone would really do that? go on the internet and spread heresy?
Talin06: I am a meat toroid thank you.
TacitusVigil: Oh Sweet Summer Cameron, thinking the Cold War ended. Kappa
coelopteryx: i love aquatic & marine smells, so i love sea salt smell accords in soaps or whatnot
SpyCactus: Are you suggesting we should get our products from hot wars instead? @LoadingReadyRun
NW9k: I bet the tube knows what salt smells like.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Add more folds
Kaorti: These days we get our products from forever wars.
TacitusVigil: I mean, the Shadows tell us that conflict leads to strength. They wouldn't lie to us, right?
kinkerbelle: What if hot wars was a line of kids toys? like hot wheels, but for wars?
asthanius: @kinkerbelle GI Joe?
BlindProphet32: Bothans!
JonnyGlitch: the internet wasn't a military project, it was a university one wasn't it?
coelopteryx: oh dang it's beta ray bill

SileeOneNow: gold pressed latinum?
Banrael: We need things. Things to make us go.

StalePieceofWhiteBread: We look for things
asthanius: Put the "y" in "hyperdrive"
Nefarious_Ned: Is Cori feeling the need.....?
Banrael: Pakleds are best pakleds.
TacitusVigil: Nausicans are more the mercenaries in TNG Trek. Although so are some Klingons. And the Breen.

coelopteryx: the need for tweed

StalePieceofWhiteBread: wrt the Breen, I love how just... weird the Breen are
Nigouki: do the mercenaries have privacy clauses for their employers? can you secretly send them after the mushrooms for claiming your systems?
Amentur: Not too long until the great Khan should surface and the "fun" begins
Kaorti: @coelopteryx I like that turn of phrase
GrandLlamaQ: "Of course. You can quite at any time, unless War were declared." *ALARM* "What's that mean?" "War were declared."
JonnyGlitch: Klingons actually manage to cower behind their concept of honor, somehow
StalePieceofWhiteBread: They're one of the only races that have a lot of utter mystery
asthanius: Well, I think the Krogans lost a lot of culture
TacitusVigil: Klingons love stories! They have opera!
Banrael: The costs of uplifting, yep
NathanJay_GA: Google has not given me a proper answer - what do the different colours mean for the ship icons?
ArkhamArchivist: Yeah, but have you ever seen Hamlet in the original Elcor?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Too busy being hardcore spacefrogs
JonnyGlitch: Klingon concept of ethics are completely self serving
Nefarious_Ned: There was that small tease of the underground ruins in me3....
Labjer: THe were at least good enough to nuke each other, I recall
SpyCactus: Space magic is what we saw in mas effect
someusername5: ship icons: green = under control, blue = ally / associate / vassal / federation / etc, yellow = neutral, red = hostile
TacitusVigil: The Krogan were discovered right after they nuked themselves once, right?'
JonnyGlitch: what could go wrong right?
NathanJay_GA: @someusername5 Thanks :)
CptMuddles: Wait, we have neighbour sloth-frands?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: So they don't count as Xenos, do they?
ectoBiologist64: @LoadingReadyRun my favorite fact about the krogan is from their history entry: before the invention of gunpowder, the top cause of death for Krogan was "eaten by predators." after the invention of gunpowder, this changed to "gunshot wounds."
Kaorti: Spice must flow!
someusername5: yes zro
jamesk902: The spice must flow!
JonnyGlitch: do you have Zro?
someusername5: get the spice
CuRua: SPICE
SpyCactus: PsiSloths
Roland_Malius: spice must flow!
SileeOneNow: The Zro must flow
asthanius: spice must zro
StalePieceofWhiteBread: The spice must zro
Banrael: Wow
kinkerbelle: I don't think you can see it until you get the tech.
TacitusVigil: Are we sure the predators in 'eaten by predators' was not 'other Krogan'?
ectoBiologist64: T H E S P I C E M U S T Z R O
SileeOneNow: The Zro must spice??
control_rig: Your advisor really doesn't pull any punches, huh
Amentur: There may not even be any Zro in the galaxy. I've gotten tech for it without being able to mine it
ectoBiologist64: uh
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Live slow, die whenever
Sati90: Psyker sloths in space
NotCainNorAbel: kraxroz jsut moved into us
JonnyGlitch: you'll totally be able to ascend to a higher level of consciousness before the crisis, while these idiots fight
JonnyGlitch: you can bribe them I think?
ectoBiologist64: are the kraxroz stockpiling warshps near the border?
control_rig: Also you're totally making me want to play Stellaris again before the next huge update!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: you want some rocks?
control_rig: Haha
SpyCactus: Obi Wan: You and those other aliens form a symbiotic circle, what happens to one of you will affect the other, you must understand this.
Papperslappen: maybe you should build a stronghold in the Lurus system since it is an internal chokepoint
JonnyGlitch: some batteries maaabie?
mercano82: #CanadaJokes... I think
asthanius: Jump in the space hole!
control_rig: Right i nthe space hole
JonnyGlitch: trampampoline! Trampmapoline!!!!
SpyCactus: Time to investigate some holes!
Laserbeaks_Fury: So how do wormholes work in this game?
TacitusVigil: Can we just open a wormhole and throw a missile through? Or many missiles?
JonnyGlitch: @Laserbeaks_Fury point A to point B, after you have the tech
control_rig: That seemed kinda perfunctory
Talin06: Get ready to rip a whole in the universe
TheOgreMagi: your zoomed out to far when looking around the galaxy
SpyCactus: Rip
CuRua: Stop expiring, you cowards!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Youngling, you must study this spacehole
neatht: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 1:55:03.
JonnyGlitch: you are low on monthly energy credits
Laserbeaks_Fury: Casual Iron Maiden in the background?
ectoBiologist64: maybe the late, great, Leonard Nimoy?
jamesk902: Oh, you still have young Elizabeth on your money?
control_rig: Look! It has a Moose. A MOOSE!
SpyCactus: I know you are referring to money, Cam, but it still sounds wrong when you say it like that @LoadingReadyRun
Nigouki: oh boy, 8-10K fleets
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Maybe this golden bear in a silver ring will change your mind!
TacitusVigil: There's no galactic power that isn't named (something) of (something) or (name)(adjective), huh?
JonnyGlitch: could be that wormhole the jelly went thgrough
ectoBiologist64: @SpyCactus yeah i thought maybe we were entering into some really specific territory
CuRua: What happened to the red jelly?
ectoBiologist64: SPOTTED
JonnyGlitch: @CuRua don't worry about it
SpyCactus: I think you should totally spook them, it is halloween season after all
Amentur: The red Jelly decided to go through a wormhole and bother someone else, CuRua
NathanJay_GA: So, to whom will you offer some Mackenzie Kings - or, dare I say - some Bordens?
Robot_Bones: shits upgraded
ectoBiologist64: zits upgraded
OuchOuchYoureOnMyHair: cheer1000 cheer100 cheer100 cheer100 cheer100 cheer100
SpyCactus: That's a lotta bits
ectoBiologist64: hey someone needs to give exactly 3000 bits
JonnyGlitch: ohh yes those plants are awesome, got any?
TheOgreMagi: 3rd armada needs a admiral
SpyCactus: They need an admirable admiral
JonnyGlitch: can you see their fleet power?
randomino5: total, among the whole species
JonnyGlitch: ooh they have a powerplant point!
CuRua: Guess what, you're child soldiers now
Amentur: Are we sending them away b/c they are not us? What are their rights?
Koshindan: You monsters. You introduced them to the concept of a job.
CuRua: Stand in the way of this invading fleet, will you?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Welcome to the Dominion, we are your gods, you may call us the Founders
mtvcdm: Why don't you e=recently-uplifted species get a job.
rendelnep: you might need to make them a citizen species
ArkhamArchivist: Also, their social standing appears to be "Undesireables"
ectoBiologist64: you monsters. you gave them depression.
Paranundrox: how do you feel about introducing capitalism to their society?
CptMuddles: Are they being purged?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Their whole economy was tied up in cave dwelling markets, and now everything is "buildings"
Papperslappen: I think your default setting is to purge them?
randomino5: it's been like a week, geez
Serifina: Now the fun part of uplifting. :D
EnvoyOfGoats: yeah, you deporting them
JonnyGlitch: if not, we can totally wipe them out easily enough
EnvoyOfGoats: probs dont want that
Koshindan: Wait, you guys were xenophobes, right? Uplifting species feels kind of xenophile.
JonnyGlitch: egalitarian? ew
SpyCactus: Let them sort it out
CyberAsp: They look exactly like us!
BloodnBullets: @Koshindan you ever had a pet?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Is this like, dictionary definition of egalitarian or internet douchebag egalitarian
TacitusVigil: "We uplifted you and interfered in your society so you can solve the problems of your society on your own"
SpyCactus: !card treespring lorian
LRRbot: Treespring Lorian [5G] | Creature — Beast [5/4] | Morph {5}{G}
Koshindan: @BloodnBullets They didn't need to make them intelligent though.
AbyssalSnowstorm just subscribed with a Tier 1 sub. AbyssalSnowstorm subscribed for 9 months in a row!
AbyssalSnowstorm: Sub baby!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, AbyssalSnowstorm! (Today's storm count: 98)
Serifina: Is it go time?
JonnyGlitch: pew pew!
SpyCactus: Closest thing I can think of that is sloth
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Green Beans of pain
JonnyGlitch: "The Gods are fighting again"
SpyCactus: Green beans or beams?
chesul: autocannons are super good.
JonnyGlitch: fire the lasers of understanding!
ectoBiologist64: FLANKING MANEUVERS
mtvcdm: Purple lasers? The nerve.
TacitusVigil: The Battle of Mardi Gras
Laserbeaks_Fury: Sun at your backs
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Are they flying IN the star?
Scotblackbird: Dear lords that's amazing.
Serifina: Beat them up!
Phailhammer: @StalePieceofWhiteBread lrrFINE
Paranundrox: "free" laser show!
SpyCactus: Be careful not to squish your new friends with falling space debris
Roland_Malius: IFF is your friend in these situations
BloodnBullets: "get some!"
JonnyGlitch: quick send a science ship in their direction!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Sloth green best green
JonnyGlitch: so much salvage!
Serifina: Sloth Superiority
CuRua: The dankest, one might say.
ectoBiologist64: oh my god, is that why they're so chill?
SpyCactus: As long as there someone with green lasers, they'll be fine
ArcOfTheConclave: we are pacifists so you don't have to.
chesul: I love that stellaris leads to things like "they're only a month away, they're super close" being a true phrase.
TacitusVigil: Will they withdraw or fight to the last?
SpyCactus: Man, your fleets tend to evaporate
SpyCactus: Like fast
CyberAsp: Some of that isn't evaporation, the ships do withdraw from the fight safely when they're too damaged.
Serifina: A victory for all slothkind!
Amentur: Such is the fate of corvettes and destroyers in the mid/late-game, SpyCactus
SpyCactus: Ah
jamesk902: Talk to the marauders, now that you've beaten their fleet.
JonnyGlitch: gee gee
CyberAsp: We only lost a handful of ships
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Praise the leaves!
DinoLaser: counter attack! Let none of their kind live!
CuRua: cheer500 Werhani, slowly and forever.
mercano82: Nice of them to deliver some purple laser research to you.
rendelnep: Anyway we think you might be expelling the upplifts
FerociousPeach: still need to check the species settings for your new sloth sons
CptMuddles: And make sure to check that your sloth-frands aren't being purged.
NathanJay_GA: What would the marauders say now?
chesul: also that the rate of fire for weapons is in rounds/day.
lifecharacter: And if anyone messes up you have to start over from the beginning.
Amentur: I believe we are still deporting our uplifted cousins, @LoadingReadyRun
TacitusVigil: I mean 24 hours b/c we only use the first verse now.
ContingentCat: Live slow, die eventually
gascitygaming: cheer100 to go where no sloth has gone before....eventually
JonnyGlitch: well at least all those naval losses have eased up the economy
chesul: other nations.
Fruan: Undesirables? We don't want any of those!
EnvoyOfGoats: You just changed the default policy
Papperslappen: now you changed the default setting but not the setting for them
TheMandrew: The farm upstate
mtvcdm: Don't even worry about it
EnvoyOfGoats: not their policy
Scrubbodiestobears: you were sending them to "away"
DinoLaser: Are you legit running an aparthide state?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Thank goodness you saved your frands
mtvcdm: They're happier there
Rockario: At least we turned off eradication purging
StalePieceofWhiteBread: @DinoLaser apparently, by accident
Labjer: That was a bit of a bureaucratic snafu there
jamesk902: You're xenophobes, so by default you'll enslave or displace all aliens.
BloodnBullets: you ARE xenophobic
I_Am_Clockwork: "Due to a hillarious Clerical error, you're now deported to the Bloodborn empire"
someusername5: change the other rights while you are there too
JonnyGlitch: you could up the living standards too
Rockario: Might also want to let them live on more than basic subsistance
CptMuddles: They're irradiated? :/
JonnyGlitch: bureaucratic oversight, sorry
Scrubbodiestobears: yeah i had a moment in my most recent game where my empire became psionic and all the psionic pops defaulted to the worst living standards my empire could give them
ectoBiologist64: when you're so xenophobic you accidentally deport your own people
lifecharacter: We're all sloths here.
Scrubbodiestobears: I know that there's no way for the menu to read my mind but i really wish it would just do what i wanted without me telling it lol
Papperslappen: the default just displace them-gene kicked in
JonnyGlitch: ungly mushrooms are dinner
DinoLaser: @StalePieceofWhiteBread There must have been a solar governor who needs to be removed
Zu_o: you should let some lions emigrate @LoadingReadyRun
StalePieceofWhiteBread: All sloths are sloths, and not sloths are not
I_Am_Clockwork: a facecation?
mercano82: bye, faces.
Zu_o: so you can be like "I'm a sloth, you're a sloth, they're a pride"
I_Am_Clockwork: vafacetion?
Koshindan: I regret making the decision not to touch stellaris until Le Guin comes out. :x
argentaria: sofieLurk
red_shoes_jeff: Yes, I too am a sloth. Solomon Oth, professional sloth. How do you do, fellow sloths?
ArcOfTheConclave: What's the sound of one sloth hand clapping? I don't know because my brain is empty!
Zu_o: That kid over there is part of a murder (points to a crow.)
skiplives: When does LeGuin come out? Have they said?
jamesk902: @skiplives No announcement yet.
Koshindan: I don't think so.
Amentur: Tweeted in August "We are not yet ready to reveal anything about when the Le Guin update will be released. All I can say at this point is that it's far away, with many more dev diaries to come."
Koshindan: I had heard speculation about November based on previous major updates, but this is probably the biggest update the game has had...
jamesk902: @skiplives Paradox are announcing something tomorrow though. Probably the expansion that will go with LeGuin.

skiplives: @jamesk902 I hope there is a nice Steam sale on it soon, otherwise I'll just buy the game soon and picj up the DLC when it all goes on sale next.
Radyin: Are the Otani tastier than we are?
Laserbeaks_Fury: They turk our jurgs
Koshindan: Try building some happiness structures, if you have them.
FerociousPeach: it'll stop when the month rolls over
jamesk902: @skiplives they often discount the game when an expansion comes out.
EnvoyOfGoats: Do you have the policy that only main species can live in core sector?
EnvoyOfGoats: that used to be a thing
CptMuddles: The mushroom people that hate us ... stole our sloth-frands.
jamesk902: Displaced pops become refugees - they usually end up in soem xenophile's empire, sinc ethey tend to accept refugees.
red_shoes_jeff: Shit's upgraded, yo.
skiplives: @jamesk902 yeah, I checked, and Stellaris goes on sale every other month or so for a week.
zeraxilim: check the individual pops, there might be a "stop purging" button
DinoLaser: If you bring in refugees, they might want to eat leaves
EnvoyOfGoats: well, we did allow them to move freely
Koshindan: Fast ships for slow sloths.
EnvoyOfGoats: so i ts kinda a jerk move to get mad at them for moving
Scrubbodiestobears: huh. Ususally pops don't migrate unless the planet is full
Rockario: It should say where they're migrating too, shouldn't it?
someusername5: send the science ship to the mercenary debris?
HesGotNoPants: do
gsyhiap: bldfMOIST
BloodnBullets: i cant help but imagine playing galaxy trucker through this galaxy.
Larkonus: Bloodyfaster
Scotblackbird: please never say that again, Cori.
gsyhiap: LUL
NathanJay_GA: M O I S T
Papperslappen: In general, don't express your moistness in public
HesGotNoPants: thanks cori now I'm stuck with "moist" in my head thinking about the mushroom kingdom
Zu_o: you should let some lions emigrate @LoadingReadyRun so you can be like "I'm a sloth, you're a sloth, they're a pride". That kid over there is part of a murder (points to a crow.)
Paranundrox: Solaris looks interesting and also completely baffling from the outside
Paranundrox: *Stellaris
JonnyGlitch: I've never managed to unlock the experimental subspace navigation
Zu_o: Snails are slothly?
red_shoes_jeff: Then MAKE some!
ArcOfTheConclave: Any goddamm bats?
HesGotNoPants: space duck with laser vision
gsyhiap: Maybe the pets in your alien zoo are lions?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Nothing faster than leaf except sloth
Scrubbodiestobears: No harpy eagles on Sloth Prime?
Koshindan: Every animal on our planet is a slothbased organism.
DinoLaser: It's a high gravity planet, sloths are the predator
someusername5: yes it is
StalePieceofWhiteBread: praise the Maker
ContingentCat: obligatory "the spice must flow"
Zu_o: are you zoomed enough?
Radyin: So, the Khan can come anytime now?
CyberAsp: You have the displays for that stuff turned off
Papperslappen: You can probably buy it from a merchant faction otherwise
jamesk902: There may be some in uneplored systems.
CyberAsp: The checkbox on the bottom right
red_shoes_jeff: Is this a good time o mention my blue eyes and love of cinnamon?
someusername5: is the research done?
someusername5: might not show up before then
red_shoes_jeff: *to
Scrubbodiestobears: there's a checkmark you can hit at the lower right that'll show the worked stations
JonnyGlitch: @Papperslappen I think the merchant factions only have a prelist of their own
JonnyGlitch: pile of blue
Scrubbodiestobears: a pile of blue dust

Mithgar: Mission Accepted!!
Mystaira: katesLol
Rockario: Are we forgetting about Pacifism again?
Rockario: :P
someusername5: wars are fine if they start it
HesGotNoPants: throw poo at them
Papperslappen: Hello, you suck and also you have a mineral we need
BloodnBullets: do you have any gloves to slap them with?
gsyhiap: The strategic diplomatic insult approach...
Scrubbodiestobears: unfortunately you won't be able to get to their space without taking that one system between you and them, i think?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Does it work like CKII where you can't just take shit if you didn't make it a war goal?
jamesk902: But if they do pick a fight, you can't claim so you won't be able to conquer their systems.
JonnyGlitch: trouble is with the blue guys between you have no way of getting there
I_Am_Clockwork: "I'm not space touching you. I'm not space touching yooooouuuu!"
Scrubbodiestobears: Elssam's owners appear to have their borders closed to you
Scrubbodiestobears: (you could also give them presents but)
HesGotNoPants: we must weaponize poop
Rockario: And whether insulting them first counts as us starting shit can be a matter for the historians to decide 1000 years from now
Amentur: We are running somewhat low on minerals. Maybe set an edict for it?
DinoLaser: Can you sell them weapons?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: PROBE THAT HOLE
gascitygaming: PROBE THAT HOLE
Scrubbodiestobears: my favorite trick for getting wars is to save a ton of minerals, build a couple 6x shipyard stations, disassemble all my corvettes, and start slinging insults
TacitusVigil: Does that mean Cameron will get visions of nonlinear beings appearing as people he knows?
gsyhiap: The can of worms has been opened...
CuRua: Worms eat leafs, right? Gotta investigate.
HesGotNoPants: @stalepieceofwhitebread for the bonus round no lube
StalePieceofWhiteBread: No, lube
Scrubbodiestobears: because 12 shipyards can usually pump out a fleet of corvettes before they can get to my space
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Always lube
Papperslappen: Now the game truly begins
BloodnBullets: pursue the red narcomoeba?
I_Am_Clockwork: are wormholes always two-way?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: But that's basically the Bajoran wormhole right there
HesGotNoPants: @stalepieceofwhitebread that what makes it the bonus round
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Shit, maybe we will meet the Dominion
I_Am_Clockwork: and was not filled with sPAce GHoaasts!
Mithgar: Good News, though. This one looks uninhabited on the other side. ... ... we think
Rockario: Can we declare an ideological war and split that one planet off as a banana republic for supplying us Zro?
coelopteryx: imagine if a wormhole were just a loop with one entrance/exit but you think you ended up somewhere else because you traveled through time so hard that everything's in a different place
Scrubbodiestobears: we can't declare offensive wars as pacifists, but the system with Zro is owned by a fanatical purifier so we can just take it in a Total War
I_Am_Clockwork: what happens if you port through a wormhole for the first time and it dumps in in hostile alien territory?
Kirkygirl: Hi all!
I_Am_Clockwork: i.e. another empire?
Scrubbodiestobears: just gotta figure out a way past Elssamn
ectoBiologist64: wait wait wait
ectoBiologist64: did we just find Deep Thought?
Rockario: @I_Am_Clockwork If you haven't met them yet it is like meeting normally.
Rockario: i.e. as soon as you make contact, emergency warp away
kaladinar: Whatever happened to the narcomeba?
I_Am_Clockwork: it went to somehwere else
Rockario: Oh yeah, where does the wormhole the Wraith went through leadd?
someusername5: influence is on maximum
CyberAsp: A new era of expansion begins!
I_Am_Clockwork: well, time for me to head home. Later all!
I_Am_Clockwork waves
Amentur: Fallen Empire possibly?
gascitygaming: thats how Murica happned basically
sir_jack_DB: lates o/
Amentur: I_Am_Clockwork doogBye doogPaw
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Possession is 10/10ths of the law
BloodnBullets: moar starbases!
Kirkygirl: With those beings you just met, I'm reminded of Monty Python for some reason.
ectoBiologist64: is there an actual difference between kelp and seaweed?
ContingentCat: I think kelp is in freshwater, something like that
CuRua: Get immortal, or die trying.
8 raiders from JeremyNoell have joined !
Bradway1: How dare time be a linear line of cause and effect
Kirkygirl: Nope, kelp is a saltwater plant.
Shadwhawk: Kelp is a kind of seaweed.
BloodnBullets: raiders! lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART

Kirkygirl: Okay, I have to get back to studying now. :(
Kirkygirl: Bye all!
Paranundrox: Welcome to the party! lrrHEART

theneatestburrito: lrrHEART lrrHEART lrrHEART
gsyhiap: passive aggressivists, more like
SileeOneNow: !advice
LRRbot: Stop getting hit by everything.
BloodnBullets: but we can piss off other races till they start a fight
IncredibleFrown: ah yes, fascifists
jamesk902: @LoadingReadyRun You can declare war. What you can't do is conquer enemy systems.
CyberAsp: You can actually declare war on the fanatic purifiers, I'm pretty sure
TacitusVigil: L space...or *Hell* Space?! (dun dun duuuuun)
CyberAsp: You just need to border them
CranstonSnord: The L you say?
VelvetFalcon: Would you say this game is... Stellar?
CyberAsp: And we don't currently border them at all
mercano82: L-Space? Ook!
CuRua: Nothing bad!
CuRua: I'm sure of it.
BloodnBullets: im sure its fine
Blade_Tiger: I'm sure there are no Cthulhus there
EnvoyOfGoats: Its clearly to keep treasures away from us
ectoBiologist64: @LoadingReadyRun it's the Geth. It's always the Geth.
Shadwhawk: Clearly it's full of riches
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Probably it's full of good stuff and they're greedy
EnvoyOfGoats: we have to go there now
JonnyGlitch: The L-cluster does have some cool resources in it though
coelopteryx: something something crave that mineral
lifecharacter: Someone probably hid something really awesome there and didn't want you to find it.
coelopteryx: climb 90 degree inclines
JonnyGlitch: the curators can tell you more :)
Amentur: Surely not a Grey Menace that awaits on the other side of that locked gate
JonnyGlitch: depends on the result you roll
CyberAsp: The L cluster has SO many planets to colonize in it, if you have terraforming.
JonnyGlitch: I just got dome space-dragons
Papperslappen: I got the good L-space event where my people got turned into super robots
JonnyGlitch: some*
CptMuddles: There's a chance of a space-dragon. Or nothing.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: So they're sort of like Iron Wind?
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Are we talking Iron Wind or Gray Goo?
CyberAsp: The L cluster has one of several random things in it
JonnyGlitch: Gray Goo
Scrubbodiestobears: one time i got an empire in L-Space that was reacted to me deactivating the maintenance cycle by being like "oh my GOD thank you we were stuck for millions of years"
Amentur: The Space-dragon of the L-Cluster was very underwhelming. It just went to a spacestation and started sleeping next to it like some stray kitten
StalePieceofWhiteBread: @JonnyGlitch well at least that just kills you
mercano82: Can you trade the other way with them? Spend energy to get minerals?
coelopteryx: space dragons?? nice
JonnyGlitch: @Amentur you can make them your friend too! it's acutally all upside
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Re-Nude
Sati90: I mean she's obviously about to have that upgraded ship
ectoBiologist64: CAW CAW CAW
ArkhamArchivist: Skeksis?
coelopteryx: that's a space tengu
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Murder murder murder! CAW CAW CAW!
JonnyGlitch: Trial by sword! Trial by Sword!!!
Amentur: Is that you Tokoyami? You changed lrrSPOOP
MasterOfArtifice: I love stellaris so much
ArkhamArchivist: How Horrifying
Reecer6: they really don't like tomb raider.
sir_jack_DB: btw, skeksis test referenced https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LlLhpWL3YDY
Rockario: It's a graveyard, you monsters!
Scrubbodiestobears: if you have the tech, you can terraform the tomb world and then colonize it and they're fine with it
ContingentCat: thank god that doesn't happen to us.
JonnyGlitch: they are not contributing to influence
ThatWhichNeverWas: Wooo Space Sloths
ThatWhichNeverWas: One day I will see talking sim from the very start. today is not that day.
ArkhamArchivist: Our Uplifted Friends can survive Tomb Worlds is probably why
Shadwhawk: There's no screeching skeksis in that video
CyberAsp: A sudden lurch towards materialism
StalePieceofWhiteBread: If we just desecrate this grave we can learn how to smelt iron or whatever
JonnyGlitch: the buffs from 2 planets far outstrip anything they could offer
StalePieceofWhiteBread: I mean was it a sloth? If not, who cares?
e_bloc: it never gets old
StalePieceofWhiteBread: HAHA YEAH THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN OH GOD I'M SCARED
ThatWhichNeverWas: Wait, Are the Traditionalists actually giving you anything anyway? I can't tell, because Not-Alex's chair was in the way.
TacitusVigil: If they really were sentient, would they have wipes themselves out? Checkmate dead people.
JonnyGlitch: the simple fact they destroyed themselves proves they were not sentient
ThatWhichNeverWas: *Cough*
IncredibleFrown: what about Very Small
StalePieceofWhiteBread: smoller than smol?
ThatWhichNeverWas: "Teensy-Weensy"
DrGrindstine: lost locality
MasterOfArtifice: Is anyone else seeing the quality drops?
JonnyGlitch: I want to have chips and salsa, but I can't open the jar
JonnyGlitch: lrrAWW lrrAWW lrrAWW
ThatWhichNeverWas: Not acording to CH it isn'T! Graham Checked!
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Who's to say that Alex isn't "Not-Cori"
IncredibleFrown: what about "small!!"
NihilismRacoon: Plank small
ThatWhichNeverWas: I fail at reference. Sorry Cori.
JonnyGlitch: I identify as non-binary from my inability to open things

StalePieceofWhiteBread: God one of my favorite things about 4x games is just watching them grow over time. I'd always watch the quick replay after a game of Civ V
MasterOfArtifice: Do you actually identify as enby? (Because if so cool! me too!) Or is that a shitty joke? @JonnyGlitch

JonnyGlitch: @MasterOfArtifice no joke, I'm find with how I present (male), but am non-binary gender role
zeraxilim: Civilization cares a lot more about having gameplay at all times; Stellaris is kind of a like an old Sim game
StalePieceofWhiteBread: @JonnyGlitch hell yeah pal
JonnyGlitch: don't really relate to either masculine or feminie
xantos69: Ok, but I actually LOVE playing spreadsheets!
MasterOfArtifice: @JonnyGlitch :) I like finding other non binary people
ThatWhichNeverWas: The presence of Narative creates an emotional investment.
DinoLaser: You can hear the venom when he says 'spreadsheets'
JonnyGlitch: @MasterOfArtifice well hello then!
someusername5: the presence of narrative *and* the customization. it is not just any random people, these are the spiritual sloths we created
NihilismRacoon: Wait Cam doesn’t like spreadsheets! lrrFRUMP
MasterOfArtifice: NonBinaryPride
ThatWhichNeverWas: Often in 4x games, the lack of individualism makes the player search for the most optimal solutions, rather than those appropriate for the race
ArkhamArchivist: Or your Caretakers of Pillow Sons
corpseponcho: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:52:11.
IncredibleFrown: it takes just enough of the creative load off to free up one's brain to fill in all the blanks, while leaving enough blanks to fill
StalePieceofWhiteBread: This game seems much more roleplay potential in this than CKII
ectoBiologist64: TransgenderPride
PunkRockZoologist: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 2:52:26.
StalePieceofWhiteBread: CKII is like, entirely spreadsheets fighting
PunkRockZoologist: Damn, I missed most of the stream watching an old Talking Sim on Stellaris :/
JonnyGlitch: I do really like the 2 word description on the groups, like "slaving despots"
corpseponcho: i missed most of the stream watching CSI
Laserbeaks_Fury: How does the heavy storytelling hold up to multiple playthrough?
JonnyGlitch: it's a game I can sit down and play for 18hrs...
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Cultist Simulator would be fun on this stream
ArkhamArchivist: ^
CyberAsp: I had more fun with cultist simulator when I hacked it to turn off some of the maintenance actions you have to keep repeatedly clicking on
JonnyGlitch: Stellaris does a great job of communicating information
StalePieceofWhiteBread: I... like? it? But it has a lot of issues and would merit talking about it
Koshindan: Fanatical Purifiers.
BigHeadZach: We're thinking that the 2.2 LeGuin mega-update release date will be announced tomorrow
JonnyGlitch: muderbots is very fun
someusername5: devouring swarm
e_bloc: "also I think murder-bots might be a fun thing to do"
jamesk902: Driven assimilator is quite fun.
ThatWhichNeverWas: "A target rich environment"
CyberAsp: My favorite thing about murder-bots is that they can be friends with other robots
Amentur: Murderbots can be very efficient cohhM
JonnyGlitch: people-batteries!
Phailhammer: That has been my experience with Paradox games since Hearts of Iron 2; leave it for ages, come back and try something else.
CyberAsp: They don't hate everyone! Just organics!
chesul: I'm playing that right now and it's great.
DarkNacht: Yay! more Cam streaming Stellaris
StalePieceofWhiteBread: "How dare they use their bodies for things besides me"
Scrubbodiestobears: yeah like, my favorite empires in Stellaris are the ones that i would view with abject horror if they existed IRL
StalePieceofWhiteBread: Tactics, Strategy, Logistics
JonnyGlitch: I wish you could make psyhic robots though
Bradway1: Or perhaps those aren't our "Win conditions"
Advisorcloud: I'm playing fanatical purifiers right now and it is a very interesting playthrough because your gameplay objective is very straightforward, but with the massive downside of having to fight everyone you meet. It changes the way you have to view the game.
someusername5: @JonnyGlitch you can make psychic cyborgs, but it is difficult
Amentur: I've never gotten the Conquest goal first. I tend to get enough planets from killing factions before
Rockario: I also like that it's habitable planets. So if you add habitable planets, you can push the victory a little more
TacitusVigil: The Sheliak
jamesk902: Inward perfection doesn't really work with the existing victory conditions, the dev team wants to re-think them at some point.
JonnyGlitch: @someusername5 can you take the ascention perk?
corpseponcho: i like that exlression. Aikido-diplomacy
someusername5: not sure. the paths I know involve getting pops from another empire with the missing traits.
Koshindan: The Sheliak weren't exactly pacifist.
Scrubbodiestobears: my personal win condition for non-conquering empires is "survive and recover from the end-game crisis"
Rockario: That's what I really like about this game: You can play an empire that has no chance of hitting a "victory condition," but that still appeals to most of the drives to play the game
JonnyGlitch: @someusername5 dang, so very dependent on luck
Advisorcloud: Most people I know who play see the game's victory conditions as a mostly unnecessary formality, and they play just to see how their empire and the situation will play out until after the crisis
CyberAsp: Yeah, even the game director thinks the win conditions are superfluous
Tiber727: I'm reminded of that one race in SG-! that was super advanced and pacifist and wise, except they refused to intervene against a race that possesses and enslaves entire species.
FarleyF: You know Cori and Cameron have you considered doing a Multipals style stream and play Stellaris as a Multiplayer game
CyberAsp: I've only ever "won" by accident
Scrubbodiestobears: the only game i "won" was smallest map possible, and for some reason i didn't get the cheevo for it
ThatWhichNeverWas: I have. It's fantastically anticlimactic.
Makimachine: @Tiber727 The Nox
Bradway1: I have played hundreds of hours of this. Only ever won once, in a multiplayer game with likeminded friends
Scrubbodiestobears: i only ever play on 1,000 stars now though
TacitusVigil: Ah, the Nox is a good example.
Rockario: End-game crisis can also shake up space in a big way. If everyone gets wiped out you can then just expand into that space
Tiber727: @Makimachine That's the one.
zeraxilim: I swear the easiest way to win a game is to trigger a War in Heaven and have enough people join the Free Empire Alliance
xantos69: I won my first game just this evening.
xantos69: It was....underwhelming.
JonnyGlitch: several different flavors of die
NathanJay_GA: Alright, Im out. Nice stream, and nice chat :)
ArcOfTheConclave: the reaconing?
Advisorcloud: The end of the cycle technically counts but it can only be triggered by entering a shroud pact
CptMuddles: Robot uprising is unfortunately highly weighted towards.
SachielOne: The fourth one involves a pact with the devil.
Scrubbodiestobears: War in Heaven, though idk if it actually counts as a crisis
someusername5: looking forward to you guys playing through the psionic ascension
Scrubbodiestobears: (i think regular crises can still fire during or after the war in heaven)
DarkNacht: Yeah its a Paradox grand strategy game you make your own win condition
Bradway1: Paradox games always seem to have a "soft victory" whether it be through time progression or something else
Amentur: We can't. We are inward Perfectionist
PunkRockZoologist: I got the extra-galactic Scourge for my endgame . Thankfully the fallen empire had just awoken and they allied with me against the Scourge.
Rockario: Inward Perfection, you literally can't join a federation
JonnyGlitch: the victory screen is totally not worth it, it just says "you win through [insert condition here]
Advisorcloud: One game I had an unlucky set of timers and got a great khan, war in heaven, and crisis at the same time
CyberAsp: You can eventually drop inward perfection
Rockario: Civic
Advisorcloud: i got steamrolled
Banrael: cheer100 I appreciate the in-depth breakdown of the game there. Thanks Cam and Cori.
Rockario: Inward Perfection really feels like a civilization that wants to just ascend to a higher plane of existence
Koshindan: You can change the perk. One of the "speedrun" strats was to use that perk to get a huge economy and then switch out to conquer.
CptMuddles: It is possible to change your ethics and thus lose the inward perfection civic
CptMuddles: which is super cool!
JonnyGlitch: thanks for the stream Cam and Cori!
Bradway1: One day a sloth will look out into space and thing "oh! That's cute"
Paranundrox: OOOOOH
Radyin: So, you have two more TS sessions before Desert Bus?
Advisorcloud: thank you for these streams
Paranundrox: I AM SO EXCITED FOR THAT
Reecer6: daaang i love me some casual games!!
Featherweight_: D&d?
SajuukSjet: Paper Clip!
Fruan: Universal Paperclipper?
Amentur: Thank you for streaming this and making me lose many hours of night, @LoadingReadyRun lrrHEART
Rockario: Once you've achieved perfection, you can then go and do something else
someusername5: universal paperclips!
ContingentCat: oooo! like Universal paperclips?
randomino5: Candybox!
JonnyGlitch: I'm looking forward to something different, as much as I love Stellaris
DarkNacht: Crush Crush
Driosenth: clicker quest!
PunkRockZoologist: Like Cookie Clicker?
SajuukSjet: SPACEPLAN
CyberAsp: Something something Shark Game
Gekyouryuu: a friend of mine plays that, I think
IncredibleFrown: did you say yume nikki or love nikki?
Lord_Hosk: Isnt there a LoadingReadyRun Clicker game website?
red_shoes_jeff: How about a Talking Sim on Progress Quest?
ContingentCat: @IncredibleFrown love nikki
Mystaira: lrrHEART
xantos69: cheer50 Bits for this session of simulated talking.
TacitusVigil: Wait, 15 isn't-
ContingentCat: yup
PunkRockZoologist: I’d love to see Adam do a guest spot on Talking Sim to play some E-Sports games like LOL
Scrubbodiestobears: i keep being like "i think i'll play a bit of stellaris before bed" and then it's 7 am
