    I played this loads at release and keep wanting to give it another shot. But every time I look there's some Great Patch with Shinies(TM) just around the corner...

    QFT. Story of my life. Wait for the shinies, then wait for the mods to be updated to make the shinies shinier.

    And finally get overwhelmed by new mechanics and not play at all.

    Granted i'm only up to 2300 but it's pretty spriteful even with 30 mods.

    same reason as livestock, you'd never use it if you for aiming for optimal outcomes.
    The use is that it allows slaves to fill specialist roles, no other slavery type allows that. Could be helpful if you have a very slow growing primary species.

    Live stock can be incredibly powerful if you do it right, especially if you have the gene tailoring techs and ascensions.

    To be fair optimal play these days is to play as a robot empire, slavery+gene tailoring tech is viable in the same way that anything is viable because the AI is retarded and can't compete with a competent human in almost any scenario.

    Started a new game playing as a machine race (01) with max hyperlanes, limited planets, and 30 empires. Fellow empires include:

    The Borg Collective (Driven Assimilators)
    The Zerg Swarm (already axed by the Borg by 2270)
    The Imperium of Man (Authoritarian Militant Xenophobes)
    Tau'ri Federation (based on Stargate)
    Cute 'n' Cuddly (fuzzy mammal Federation Builders)
    Disciples of Muad'Dib (Spiritualist Militants)

    I had to be smart about my expansion so as not to get hit hard by empire sprawl, but also aggressive as empires started hemming me in around 2221. I also ran into a rough patch when I got tier 2 reactors fairly early, but then got nothing for reactors/shields/command limit for another 50 years. It got a bit concerning. Then, suddenly, I got the options for tier 3-5 reactors within a 15-year span, along with most of the prerequisites for Mega-Engineering.

    It's now 2280, and with the recent colonization of the First League homeworld, I am swimming in pops and tech. wondering if I should burn the galaxy down.

    I may have gone slightly overboard with megastructures (gigastructural engineering mod) with my latest run:

    It's a birch world, you encase the galactic core singularity at a distance such that the surface rests at the 1g range. It's a tremendous shell world hundreds of au in diameter. It has jobs and unique districts that actually generate jobs and district slots as a factor of population numbers, it's capable of housing supplying and employing a functionally infinite population.

    Reminds me of The City from BLAME! manga. IIRC it was an AI constructed dyson sphere that spun out of control and encased the whole Sol.

    I'll post pictures of the whole thing when I get home, my goal is to try to get enough pops to break the save.

    There's a mod that changes the pop growth curves to not be linear but logarithmic in relation to size and carrying capacity.

    It works with the Birch World gigastructure but still caps you at 1 pop a month.

    Hels probably means "carrying capacity" mod. Excellent idea and simple implementation.

    Last game ended horribly when I sent my ill-equipped 20k fleet against the Automated Dreadnought, lost everything, and was immediately wardecced by a western neighbor. GGWP.

    In that game, I noticed my Gestalt Consciousness eastern neighbor was roughly on par with my research. I took a look at his planets and found he had 9 research labs. Which was a huge shock, as I only had two (the second was built in the mid game). It made me realize that I was never using the full potential of a materialist ethic. So, I decided to change things up.

    I started a new game as a Fanatic Materialist (as is tradition), but this time, I opted to have everyone live under Utopian Abundance living standards, not Academic Privilege. This has the effect of greatly increasing upkeep for pops, but raising happiness even further. The last time I tried this, the consumer goods upkeep did me in. These failures led me to adopt the Slow Breeder trait, but I dropped that during this run in favor of Nonadaptable. I lucked out with finding a volatile motes resource and the Vultaum homeworld within my borders, which secured me plenty of research and exotic gases. Now, I have two factories producing consumer goods, which cover the upkeep of pops and research labs. I also built a synthetic crystal factory, to support the upgrades to the factories, which will in turn support the upgraded research labs and pops.

    It is now 2240, and I am sitting at about 345 research. By 2250, I should be over 420. I have twice as much research done as anyone else (except the fallen empires), and my pops have been genetically modified to be more adaptable. They are currently undergoing the process of becoming cyborgs. I am still limited to one planet and am highly-leveraged (my empire's most crucial resources depend on a single system). But I am about to go wide. Very wide.
