so I had some time to actually play stellaris this weekend and I think the new planet and economy system is a great improvment for the game.

 

Building your empire is a lot more fun now as you have to plan ahead what functions your planet will provide for the empire.

which inturn also means that loosing a single planet can now cripple your entire empire.

 

 

Sounds like Anno, where shortage of goods can send city (and your budget) into

 chaos. Especially when you're building mega city (by Anno standards) and ship(s) hauling spices from Orient gets emotional event involving guns. And boy, them citizens have no issues to snort entire ship hold of spices in like 5 minutes

However, you are very much invited to chat with us about things and thingies on your mind. Take a beer, take some crisps, feel at home :great:

@Fish: Ah yes, the joys of living in Cymru. :teethhappy:

 

As mentioned, I went to a christmas market earlier today, and saw some burds:

Spoiler

 

Played quite a lot of tanks today as well, some 14 battles, but managing only 6 wins.

I'd blame the marathon×weekend combo for this.

 

I also decided to start up Crusader Kings II again after a bit longer break than planned due to the reformation rework.

Genghis Khan Nishi Takeichi, uniter of the Steppes, called forth every shaman of the Tengri faith to congregate in Yangikent¹ to debate the faith.

In a great convlave to rival that of Nikaia, they poured over The Legends of the faith, to unify them in a single holy scripture, so that they may better withstand the oncroach of the cross and the moon.

"This is our homeland and our faith: it has been passed down by our ancestors from ages immemorial, and so shall it be passed down onto our children's children until the end of days. Woe be to he who tries to seperate one from the other."

Spoke the Genghis Khan, and none dared to raise arguement, for deep down, all know this to be divine truth.

"And like the Sky-Father rules all above. And the Earth-Mother provides for all who thread upon her. So too shall both man and woman be distinct but equal, for one without the other is unfathomable."

Some of the shamans disagreed and argued that it man was superiour to woman, just as Tengri is the highest of the Gods and all others are under him. But Eje protects all of her children, and is as such of equal importance to Tengri.

"But how is our faith to be led? Who is worthy enough to do so?" Asked Nishi Takeichi, and the shamans debated.

"The Legends mention nothing, but who other than the one to unite all under the sky and the one who protects his fellow clansmen? You, Genghis Khan, have proven to be such, and so you will lead our faith."

And so the faith was reformed in the year 808 AD.

Shortly there-after, Nishi Takeichi finished building a legend, and went onto a legendary journey with some fellow lodge members:

¹Yangikent, or Jankent was a city near the Aralic Sea many centuries ago.

kinda, I am to tired to explain it in right now, but you just have think of things interacting in far greater detail than before.

 

for example trade is now a real thing, where planets and systems generate trade potential, which can depend on things like population or buildings on the planet itself, that can be used by starbases to be shiped along trade routs to make you filthy rich.

But at the same time trade routes now attract piracy and each system your caravans are passing through slowly has a ever growing piracy problem.

So to keep your income rolling and avoid major pirate fleets poping up all over the place, you have to actually send out small fleets patroling the trade routes.

PS: got an offer for a nearly brand-new Nokia 950 XL :)  not sure whether to buy it for 100€ as it is a dead end but the camera is awesome

Well then, I managed to play a couple of hours of Anthem (that new game from BioWare) this weekend (closed alpha test) and I was honestly quite surprised by the game. I had low expectations going in and all I can say is that this game looks pretty great so far, it certainly has a lot of potential.

why?

 

I don't think that the minimal performance boost I get with DDR4-3000

justifies the price.

 

it will be a huge step forward from my i7-2600 with DDR3-1333, especially in terms of performance per watts

And done...

Sold and moved crew to 45TP.

No rammer on 45TP yet since I hope that equipment will be on sale soon.

Did play one battle, toptier 5/10 on empire's border.

Lost that. Despite doing 2.8k dmg and 3 kills. :facepalm:

Because a fullhealth SU-100 on my team was too retarded to cap when told to do so. :angry:

So instead, the last remaining enemy, a 1-shot panther, got to our base instead.

Our remaining arta missed his shot and got rekt, panther than capped.

Because da, SU is 43% player for reason.

Difference between ram speeds on Ryzen is quite substantial, it can easily give you a 10 fps increase going from 2666 to 3000. But it all depends on the price I guess, over here you can already get a 3000Mhz kit of 16GB for 120 euros which is like 5 euros more than a 2666 kit which makes it an easy choice.

But if the difference is like 50 euros then I can understand obviously.
