i found factorio to be well

too simplistically complex, if that makes any sense. more so that the only real objective in the game is "how needlessly complex can you make your thirty five kilometer wide super factory that produces every item in the game at a trillion units a second".

i derive a lot of satisfaction from games that have a story arc that is seen through by sandbox/4k esqe means. like in rimworld, for example. your end game is to construct a ship and leave the planet, and how you do that is up to you. and normally in the process of doing it, you create a vastly interesting story with hundreds of different factors that went into making it.

in contrast to that, games that say "here's all the parts, you don't get a end game" and "here's the end game, and i'll put the parts together for you" aren't really desirable. games that have different end games and let you choose which parts you want to use (the walking dead for example) are also some what desirable.

i also tried playing aurora and found it more akin to my experience with dwarf fortress. either i don't have a high enough IQ to play the game or i don't have a strong enough attention span. i eventually got bored of aurora after discovering that it's basically rinse and repeat until you own the galaxy. most diplomacy and internal regulation isn't all that vastly complicated and short of pulling up some spreadsheets to minmax it into oblivion. i'm sure there's more depth to be explored and discovered but i simply don't have the tenacity for it.

possibly modded minecraft - it doesnt have much of a story but does have an endgame but is still pretty open about how you approach it, especially if you use a pack with tweaked recipes to that extent

Oh, shit someone else played cortex command?

Hit me up with your favorite mods.

Mine are the ones with the reflective sphere/reflective man and the plane. (Huge Pack O Mods.)

The one with the giant robot, (Colossus Punisher.)

The Mulaak Race. (Mobs that can reform after death via digging as drones.)

And lastly Wittys wonderful pack of mods. (The Crab-Gun is top tier.)

I used to have this mod where you could infect enemies with plant spores. Causing quite literally a xenomorph type birth where your plant combatant would appear. It was amazing. Now it's lost in time, and I've looked for it dearly.

Rimworld: You either like a good challenge with some RP mixed in, or play on low difficulties to enjoy your sci-fi dollhouse.
Dwarf Fortress: You probably like /tg/, and are likely a patient person to boot.
Terraria: You enjoy creative pursuits, but enjoy an element of chaos to go along with it.

Games I’ve been playing:


For Honor
Subnautica (I’ve had it in my steam library for ages and haven’t played it)
Battlefield 1
Aurora 4x



Mainly For Honor I’ve been playing 2-3 hours a day, pretty fun game when you aren’t getting titled cause of broken mechanics or other stupidity.

Since Aurora was brought up- how far have you all actually gotten in the game? I usually hit a point roughly 4-6 hours after playing where the game becomes excruciatingly slow, and by that point I've hardly established new colonies in my adjacent sectors/dealt with whatever might be there. Afaik this problem is seemingly exponential, as others usually hit this ceiling, too, regardless of PC specs.

This tends to happen to me too when I can’t move enough automated mines to other planets in my starting solar system to start construction, so I like to use spacemaster just to dump 200-300 automated mines and some mass drivers on a mineral rich planet just so I don’t sit for hours waiting for my shitty freighter I designed to move 5 mines at a time every 2 weeks. Colonies are slow to set up yeah, and terraforming takes even longer but it grows exponentially in size the more people you have. Your colonies will never be as big as your home planet, but given time they’ll still get pretty big.



The thing I can’t wrap my head around with Aurora is the combat, especially missiles and AMM’s. I just tried to send a small strike fleet to deal with a collection of Precursor ships composed of a few laser skiffs and missile cruisers and got owned despite having the superior weapons and EP.

I haven't played in a long time but Rise to Ruins is pretty cool if you like colony building type of games

Oxygen Not Included is also pretty great, sort of akin to Rimworld but instead of getting wiped out by raiders it's all about getting your colony to be sustainable and not collapse on itself, which is harder than it sounds
I play as Swanni, the brain-damaged moth.

Be nice to each other.

It's been a while since I've played Aurora, but I do remember it taking ~3 hours to figure out how missiles work. You have to sync each launcher with a weapons firing system or something, I'd have to look back at it. Though a design I'd always go with for precursor ships, was long-range high-impact missiles of a hefty size, then make a "Missile Boat" with a one-use launcher, so that you keep the craft as small as possible. Saves on resources/production time when the only thing you have to worry about is manufacturing the missile. Plus, if you need more, you just make 3-5 Missile Boats, and 1 Mothership where they can dock and reload. Missiles > Energy weapons up until you get fine enough mechanisms to make anti-missile laser defense turrets. The range on them is insane, usually I'll just pop out of the jumpgate and shoot.

I'll look for the guide I used to figure out missiles and append my post with it.

http://aurorawiki.pentarch.org/index.ph ... nd_Sensors
This is what I learned from, but what I linked to is a really important step for making missiles to kill precursor ships.

On a different note, I started playing Kenshi. Looked up a decent starting place and heard of the northern coast, so I hauled everything there, set up, and within five minutes "A GROUP OF CANNIBALS ARE ON THEIR WAY TO YOUR BASE"

i just picked up stellaris yesterday night, and every time i heard "CONSTRUCTION COMPLETED" or "ANOMALY DISCOVERED" i took a shot

i proceeded to play the game for 18 hours straight and passed out on the floor drunk as the last of my fleets took over the last remaining fallen empire, pretty fucken good game

i tried pirating kenshi and as karma would have it, it wouldn't mirror properly. i also played subnautica and for honor in the past, both bretty great games

and in regards to cortex command, i found the best way to play it was to download -all- of the mods, because the resulting chaos that occurs from the space marines with energy swords that explode on death and become barney is pretty fun

caves of qud was a good play for a long while, eventually hit a burn out,

added a few more games to the list

if you are into tracking down old-ass games (you have dorf fort on your list so it's a possibility) then you might like the Creatures series, there is no endgame but there is decently robust genetics and shit. idk if they still exist because the first game is over 20 years old at this point but there were a fuckton of mods in existence too

EDIT: also it has reptiles
