Blue Sky Chapter 120

Playing Stellaris with friends again has been a blast.
I’ve only done it twice before so doing it again is great.

I’m glad that pausing is still available in multiplayer because otherwise it would be hell.
And the free weekend meant that I could lure a friend of mine into the game too.

All in all it’s been a good time to get back into Stellaris.
Not to mention I’m now mildly competent at the game!
I don’t get demolished immediately anymore!

However currently things are tight as two of the mid-game crisis events have triggered at the same time, it’s like pandemonium in the galaxy right now.
The end-game crisis event shouldn’t be far off either. Might be a total disaster.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 461

Again, messed up with the scheduling for this one and had to last minute fix things, I accidentally rescheduled the previous two chapters.
Would have been a mess.

Anyway, been playing Stellaris a lot recently, and today it hit me.
I’ve only ever actually dealt with the end game crises in this game about two or three times.
I also stop in the late mid-game and never reach the end game.

I think it’s because I’m not very warlike and once the borders stagnate it becomes hard for me to do anything interesting.
There’s only so many times I can press a repeatable tech button and not get bored!

Blue Sky Chapter 119

In this chapter we learn about how the MC plans to counter her terrible economic sense, and about how the author plans to handwave their terrible understanding of economics.
It’s going to be a suspenseful chapter full of lots of poli….

Oh….

Oh it’s a comedy chapter. My bad.

Blue Sky Chapter 118

The Marvels What If series was really good and interesting.
I like a lot of what they did, and it gave some interesting character interactions.

And of course they included the classic Zombies timeline.

But what impressed me most was the Dr Strange one.
I’m wondering if next season they’ll do the 1602 timeline with all the characters existing 400 years early.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 459

My friend took pity on me today, and managed to find a piece of music I used to listen to that was deleted from youtube.
Well I say took pity, it only took them a couple of seconds to search.
Although they had to send it to me by proxy since for some reason I just couldn’t download it.

I think my computer is being weird.
Well that’s to be expected from windows.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 458

So I’m scheduling this while watching the artist work on the piece I commissioned.
It’s very exciting stuff.

So the theme for this piece was really basic just “my character in a position of having been defeated”.
And the direction they’ve taken it is one of the three I predicted they might choose.
The one they chose was a kneeling position after having lost the energy to fight.

The other two I predicted were her laying collapsed on the ground, or leaning on her sword for support.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 456

You know what sucks, not having ad revenue during the one period of the year you want to spend money the most.
So many cool new gacha characters.
So many art commissions I want to make.
So many games I need to catch up on.

Right now I am spending all my money on commissions because I might have an addiction.
I’m thinking of saving up for a month or two as well, so I can commission a relatively famous artist from Japan.
I want to see how they interpret and style my character.

Blue Sky Chapter 117

I won a competition today.
I don’t really remember entering it, but apparently I won.

I got sent a Blu-Ray copy of Lord El Melloi II’s Case Files.
I can see why I presumably entered this competition.
I am a Fate and Nasuverse fan after all.

Now I just need to find the controller for my bluray player…

Blue Sky Chapter 116

The past couple of days I’ve been obsessively working on an update for a Stellaris mod.
Honestly it’s become almost crippling!
I completely forgot that I wanted to stream today because I spent a full five hours writing out different branch points.

The actual contents of what I’m working on is a pair of event chains for an origin mod.
I can’t actually mod, and have no experience with Stellaris beyond writing some flavour text in the past.
So what I did was throw together some material as an outline with all the dialogue and text boxes.
Then someone smarter than me will turn that into actual gameplay.

Honestly for how long they take to concept and write, they’re probably not gonna be a big deal to players though.
I hope at least someone enjoys them.
The only problem is that they might mess with a couple of bits of the base game, since it needs a determined system nearby to trigger.

Demon Sword Maiden Chapter 455

The UN is at it again with poor management, terrible employees and general incompetence.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the UN and I think the UN is the first step towards what should be a far better future for the world.
But ideals just don’t hold up in reality.

The UN isn’t up to the task it’s taken on, and when an organisation is that big and under that much red tape, exploitation is rife.
It’s a shame, but it’s true.

I wish I could just magically take over and fix the UN honestly, as a futurist.
