So far I'm enjoying it quite a bit, but I have no idea how well the AI holds up yet since I'm still in my first game that was started on a fairly low difficulty level.

I'm actually very glad I didn't buy the expansions yet, because Stellaris is a really complex game and can be a little overwhelming. Adding a bunch of extra content right away would probably make that worse.

It's impressive how often my dev cheats fail in our games. I want monsters to not bother me, so I use cheat_noTarget. While looking at code, the town gets sieged, a fireball strikes nearby and starts a fire, and my character dies in the fire. I was never targeted though.

Here's a decent video about the various Stellaris expansions.

I agree with you the addition would worsen the situation because Stellaris is really complex

No Din's Legacy patch today. I'm taking a much needed mini-vacation to recharge. I will be back working next week.

I got most of my tax stuff for the next few weeks out of the way today. Now I can focus on Din's Legacy!

I'm adding a bunch of new traps to Din's Legacy today. Some quite dangerous and some not so much.

It looks like some kind of buyout offer for GameStop fell through. Does anyone still buy games there? It really seems to me like they are trying to go the route of Blockbuster.

Game code bases can be strange, new functions in ours: checkCorrectGod, godPleased, altarDestroyed, and tryGodRetaliation.
