Re: EVERSPACE

What's this? a good-looking game that seems feature-rich, open-world-ish and filled with loot, that doesn't try to tack on multiplayer, and that listened to players and removed the roguelike punishments of the original? I am really not a fan at all of Kickstarter any more, and I don't want to give t...

Re: The End

We're at the 1 year anniversary of this thread, and I just wanted to drop by and thank everyone on the forum for giving me hours of interesting and varied reading along with Josh for starting the community and making the gorgeous update videos I looked forward to watching every month(-ish). Well sa...

Re: Pine

Aaaaaaand we have a release date for Pine: October 10, 2019. Unfortunately, dynamic weather couldn't be included in the initial release. But there's still a lot of simulationist goodness, plus all the exploratory gameplay. They're doing a beta now to scrape off the last buglets, but it's looking goo...

Re: Books!

[I hope I can be forgiven for the double post, but I really didn't want to combine these two.] Since we're talking about books again, it occurs to me that I've got some notes I put down recently on a literary subject near and dear to my heart, and I thought maybe somebody else might get some pleasur...

Re: Books!

I just finished a book by Harry Turtledove, best known for his alternate history novels, called Noninterference . It's a stand alone work from 1985 so I assume it's one of his earliest works. I found it a truly fascinating read and highly recommend it. https://www.amazon.com/Noninterference-Harry-T...

Re: Rocket Lunches

I've been enjoying listening to "Apollo 11 in Real Time": the actual audio from all the NASA Mission Control stations, sequenced as it happened -- 11,000 hours of it. https://apolloinrealtime.org/11/ I was watching when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface of the Moon. I remember calling my mom t...

Re: Stellaris

The best patch notes from today's v2.3.3 release: Non-genocidal gestalt empires may now also seize the galatron from those who would withhold access to its glory Fixed so that the AI uses their idle science ships to assist research rather than just drawing salaries and doing nothing like typical fre...

Re: Limit Theory Forumite Residential Archive Map

In one of those odd coincidences, Inaccessible Island <wave to Cody> came up in a book excerpt I was reading today.

It was the site in 1821 of one of the more (though not entirely) successful cases of shipwrecks -- "successful" in the sense that most of the castaways survived and were rescued.

Re: Stellaris

The two Fallen Empires have about 26000 victory points, and I'm creeping up behind them at 21000... but I assume some silly Crisis will be imposed before I can edge past them before 2500 arrives. In the meantime, I'm trying to get one of these jerk empires to fight me so I can see what war's like. B...

Re: Limit Theory Forumite Residential Archive Map

While I'm not a fan of Google, I'm glad the old map is replaced. And thank you, Detritus, for the adds. Please throw me down a marker roundabouts 32.74, -97.42. (Also not a fan of xkcd, but I couldn't help but work out that those coordinates -- 28.52345 N, 80.68309 W -- point to a specific rocket me...

Re: The End

Thanks, Tal! It sounds like you did your usual excellent job communicating the interests of the fans (of both Josh and LT) here to him... and I'm very happy to hear these forums are sticking around a while longer. Also, yay for a steady job. :D Looking forward to Release Day! (And of course it would...
