    Stellaris Dev Diary #214: Announcing “The Custodians” initiative and the free Lem Update
    Saluti!

    Oggi sono qui per annunciarvi delle buone notizie! Stellaris non sta rallentando, anzi sta aumentando il ritmo! Noi di PDS Green siamo felici di annunciare la nostra nuova iniziativa "Guardiani" oltre alla prossimo patch gratuita, che arriverà dopo l'estate.

    Il Team dei Guardiani
    Stellaris è un gioco che è cambiato molto nel corso degli anni. Voglio spiegarvi perché abbiamo deciso di intraprendere questa iniziativa.

    Con il rilascio di ogni espansione, il tempo tra i rilasci si è allungato sempre di più, dato che abbiamo dovuto dedicare sempre più tempo alla qualità, per assicurarci che ogni rilascio sia il più stabile possibile. La Paradox Development Studio è anche cambiata abbastanza rispetto a qualche anno fa. I processi sono più lunghi, ce ne sono molti di più e ci sono molte più persone coinvolte. Siccome ogni rilascio richiede sempre più tempo, questo ci rende difficile la risoluzione di problemi nel periodo tra un DLC e il successivo.

    Con l'aggiunta di nuovo contenuto è diventato più difficile mantenerlo in buono stato, dato che il contenuto aggiunto nel corso degli anni è molto vasto. Vogliamo continuare a creare nuove belle esperienze per Stellaris, ma vogliamo anche mantenere un'alta qualità per il gioco base e per il vecchio contenuto.

    Quello che abbiamo fatto ora che abbiamo più personale [N.d.AC: immagino persone provenienti da Imperator: Rome] è stato dividere il team in due team separati focalizzati su differenti aspetti del gioco. Un team è chiamato dei "Guardiani" e si focalizzerà su patch gratuite che vorremmo rilasciare ogni 3 mesi, mentre il team "espansione" si focalizzerà sul creare nuovo contenuto per il gioco.

    Esempi di quello su cui potrebbero lavorare i "Guardiani":
    • Affinare il bilanciamento
    • Aggiungere nuovo contenuti a vecchi DLC
    • Migliorare contenuto esistente
    • Risoluzione Bug
    • Miglioramenti alle prestazioni
    • Miglioramenti all'IA
    • Stabilità Multiplayer
    • Miglioramenti a UI e qualità-della-vita

    Questo non significa che il gioco all'improvviso sarà "risolto" o "completato". Insieme a voi, la comunità, abbiamo la migliore opportunità di sempre per migliorare il gioco. Infatti, penso che lavorare con la comunità sarà cruciale per svolgere questo lavoro. Dovremo migliorare il mondo con cui comunichiamo, per poterci capire meglio a vicenda

    Cosa NON sono i "Guardiani"
    Non è un proiettile magico o un modo veloce per fare le cose. Ci vorrà tempo, spero rimarrete con noi.

    Quello che possiamo aspettarci sono piccoli miglioramenti incrementali con aggiornamenti più regolari.

    Onorare Stanislaw Lem
    La prima patch gratuita, la patch Lem, sarà così chiamata in onore dello scrittore polacco di fantascienza Stanislaw Lem, il cui 100esimo anniversario sarà celebrato quest'anno. Stanislaw Lem è famoso per lavori come Solaris, che ha ispirato Stellaris come lo vedete oggi. La patch Lem dovrebbe essere rilasciata dopo l'estate.

    Per essere chiari sulle aspettative, la patch Lem sarà un po' più ampia e ambiziosa rispetto alle successive patch dei "Guardiani". Questo perché abbiamo già iniziato a lavorare da tempo su quanto pianificato. É anche importante notare che al momento la patch Lem dovrebbe essere una patch gratuita standalone, non associata a un DLC a pagamento.

    La patch Lem dovrebbe avere le seguenti caratteristiche:
    • Migliorare il passato: stiamo riguardando vecchi DLC per rivitalizzarli con nuovo contenuto. Gli Humanoids Species Pack e Plantoids Species Packs dovrebbero ricevere nuove caratteristiche di gioco. A proposito, qualcuno ha parlato di Menti Alveari Necrofaghe?
    • Alberi delle Tradizioni Selezionabili: non sarete più limitati agli stessi 7 alberi delle tradizioni, ma invece avrete 7 slot che possono essere riempiti con gli alberi che sceglierete. Il numero di alberi delle tradizioni sarà aumentato e i precedenti alberi scambiati per determinate combinazioni saranno separati (Adattabilità non sarà più solo il sostituto di Diplomazia). Alcuni nuovi Alberi delle Tradizioni saranno aggiunti a DLC esistenti.
    • Bilanciamento: controlleremo il bilanciamento di meccaniche di gioco esistenti.
    • e altro ancora..!: miglioramenti Qualità-della-vita, risoluzione bug, miglioramenti IA...

    Scenderemo nel dettaglio in DD futuri, per ora non aggiungo altro. Torneremo settimana prossima per parlare del bilanciamento del gioco.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #215 - Gameplay themes & Balancing considerations

    Ciao a tutti!

    Prima di tutto desidero ringraziarvi per l'ampio sostegno che ci avete fornito all'annuncio dell'iniziativa dei Guardiani. É stato bello e motivante leggere così tante risposte positive e per questo vi siamo grati. Allo stesso tempo, devo ammettere di essere un po' spaventato perché non vorrei che ora ci fosse l'aspettativa di risolvere in breve tempo ogni problema del gioco o che saremo in grado di effettuare cambiamenti significativi con ogni aggiornamento. Apprezziamo l'opportunità e cercheremo di trarne il massimo. [​IMG]

    Temi del Gameplay degli Species Pack
    Settimana scorsa abbiamo parlato di quale sarà il focus della patch Lem (in onore dell'autore Stanislaw Lem), ma ora vorrei aggiungere alcuni dettagli e precisazioni.

    Abbiamo detto di voler aggiungere gameplay allo Humanoids Species Pack e al Plantoids Species Pack, e sebbene non voglia fornire i dettagli esatti, vogliamo parlarvi dell'approccio e dei temi scelti.

    Per i Plantoidi è stato più facile, dato che ci sono ovvie narrative collegate. Abbiamo sviluppato i temi della crescita e delle piante e aggiunti nuovi Tratti, Civic e Origini. Abbiamo anche deciso di permettere questi nuove caratteristiche del gameplay non solo ai ritratti dei Plantoidi ma anche a quelli Fungoidi.

    Gli Umanoidi sono stati più difficili, dato che non ci sono narrative direttamente applicabili, quindi ci siamo invece concentrati sulle fantasie che si allineano con nani, elfi, orchi o umani. Il Civic mostrato alla fine dello scorso DD è un esempio di qualcosa che è stato ispirati dalle tipiche narrative fantasy dei nani.

    Fateci sapere se avete idee o pensieri a proposito di questo.

    Approfondiremo i dettagli in futuro, forse ad Agosto.

    Bilanciamento del Gioco
    Vogliamo risolvere i principali problemi di bilanciamento attuali.

    Un esempio è la Ricerca, i power players possono essenzialmente surclassare gli altri imperi focalizzandosi su di essa. Questo di solito è dovuto al fatto che i Distretti che forniscono lavori per Ricercatori sono facili da ottenere nel breve o attraverso Origini come Shattered Ring o Void Dwellers (quest'ultimo meno potente).

    Per Shattered Ring vorremo cambiare l'inizio da un vero Ring World di "fine partita" con una vera sorta di “Shattered Ring” che va riparato prima di avere accesso ai potenti Distretti del Ring World. Aggiungere la narrativa aggiuntiva di ripristinare l'antica megastruttura alla sua gloria passata può essere una divertente aggiunta a questa Origine. Anche se non abbiamo ancora preso una decisione, cambiare l'Origine per iniziare con uno Shattered Ring da ripristinare tramite la Mega-Ingegneria è l'opzione più probabile al momento.

    Unity & Empire Sprawl
    Dopo Lem vorremmo dare un'occhiata a Empire Sprawl e Unity. Il design della Admin Capacity non mi è mai piaciuta molto e non abbiamo mai completato il disegna per cui era intesa. Continuare a usare l'Admin Capacity come meccanica sembra un vicolo cieco per vari motivi (dal design a motivi tecnici) quindi stiamo pensando a un'altra soluzione.

    Sto pensando di usare l'Unity come risorsa per la gestione interna, rimuovendo totalmente l'Admin Capacity e per rendere l'Empire Sprawl qualcosa che non si potrà più mitigare. Imperi più vasti soffriranno sempre più penalità per l'Empire Sprawl mentre l'Unity potrà essere usata per mitigare queste penalità. Ad esempio tramite Editti con un costo di mantenimento in Unity e che ad esempio riducono la Penalità al costo della Ricerca dovuta all'Empire Sprawl. POP scontenti potrebbero avere anche un loro un costo di mantenimento in Unity, pe rappresentare il loro impatto sulla società.

    Notate che queste idee al momento sono solo proposte prone a cambiamenti. Torneremo a parlarne probabilmente dopo il rilascio della patch Lem, ma ho voluto condividere con voi questi pensieri per ottenere del feedback iniziale.

    ------

    Questo è tutto per questa settimana! Stiamo per rivedere la programmazione dei nostri DD, quindi al momento speriamo di poter scrivere altri 2 DD prima della pausa estiva. Vi faremo sapere in caso di cambiamenti.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #216 - Changes to Necroids Content in the Lem Update
    Ciao a tutti!

    Come @grekulf ha anticipato, uno dei nostri obiettivi per la patch Lem è migliorare il valore dei DLC esistenti aggiungendovi nuovo contenuto. Come parte di questo sforzo, alcuni dei nostri Species Pack hanno ricevuto attenzione. Questa settimana inizierò a parlarvi delle prossime modifiche allo Species Pack Necroids.

    Sebbene siamo in generale soddisfatti del contenuto di Necroids (anzi, non sarà facile eguagliare tale livello in futuri Species Pack), alcuni di noi - sia nel team che nella comunità - rimpiangono alcune opportunità mancate. La patch Lem sarà l'opportunità per porvi rimedio.

    Menti Alveari Necrofaghe

    Ci sono state un po' di richieste di permettere alle Menti Alveari di essere Necrofaghe e con la patch Lem questo sarà possibile!
    [​IMG]


    Funzioneranno in maniera simili ai normali Necrofagi, ma con alcune differenze;
    • I testi che fanno riferimento a intelligenza individuale sono stati riscritti per adattarli al tema dell'alveare
    • Le Menti Alveary in generali non accettano individui non-alveari nel proprio impero se non come Bestiame e le Menti Alveary Necrofaghe non fanno eccezione. Però, a differenze delle altre, i Necro-Alveari permetteranno al Bestiamo di procreare. Il Bestiame può poi essere introdotto nell'Alveare tramite Centri di Elevazione.
      • A differenza dei normali Necrofagi, i Necrophytes di Necro-Alveari non usano Consumer Goods. Al loro posto, la loro richiesta di Cibo (o di Minerali, se sono Litoidi) è stata raddoppiata
    [​IMG]

    • Come i Necrofagi normali, i Necro-Alveari possono usare la Necrophage Purge per velocizzare le cose. Per questo le Menti Alveary (di tutti i tipi) ora possono purgare Pop Gestlat che non siano della loro specie
    • Dare un senso ai Mondi Alveari per i Necrofagi è complicato, dato che in precedenza non era permesso a Pop non-Alveari di viverci - il pianeta li avrebbe divorati. La soluzione a cui stiamo lavorando è permettere solo a Necro-Alveary di portarci i propri Necrophytes.
    • Così come potete combinare Fanatici Purificatori con Necrofagi, potere anche creare uno Sciame Divoratore (o Terrivoro) Necrofago

    Cambiamenti Generali ai Necrofagi

    Non abbiamo potuto non notare che i Necrofagi sono abbastanza forti. Alcune delle cose che li rendono divertenti da giocare li rendono anche molto potenti, quindi è un equilibrio difficile da trovare. Tuttavia, abbiamo pensato a una serie di cambiamenti che dovrebbero renderli più in linea con altri tipi, pur mantenendo lo spirito della loro Origine:
    • Necrofagi che non purgano non iniziano più con 2 POP extra in più delle altre Origini normale (quelli che purgano li mantengono perché probabilmente li consumano in fretta).
    • I mondi primitivi garantiti non possono più avere primitivi avanzati oltre l'Età del Ferri (il limite precedente era l'Età del Vapore) e avranno più armate difensive del solito. Questo per non renderli un inizio migliore di tutti gli altri.
    • I Centri di Elevazione non forniscono più un bonus alla stabilità e la Unity prodotta è stata ridotto di un quarto
    • La probabilità di fuga di un POP durante una purga Necrofaga è stata aumentata dal 10% al 25%. Questo è ora presente nei tooltip.
    [​IMG]

    Culti della Morte

    In contrasto con i Necrofagi, con l'avvento della 3.0 e i cambiamenti alla crescita dei POP, ci sembra che i Culti della Morte - sebbene con meccaniche e caratteristiche interessanti - abbiamo perso qualcosa in termini di bonus. In altre parole, servono maggiori ricompense per il sacrificio dei propri POP.

    Uno dei problemi avuti quando l'abbiamo implementato sono le possibilità limitare di usare vere formule matematiche negli script di Stellaris. Tuttavia, come accennato nel mio precedente DD, questo particolare collo di bottiglia è stato alleviato (anzi, anche qualcosa in più - Lem avrà un sacco di belle sorprese per i modder!).

    In precedenza, quando decidevate di sacrificare la vostra popolazione, ottenevate un parte di bonus come modificatore fisso e un'altra che scalava con il numero di POP sacrificati. Ora c'è una differenza: la parte variabile scala con la % del numero totale di POP sacrificati.

    Stiamo ancora lavorando sui numeri, ma in generale otterrete bonus migliori per ogni POP sacrificato, soprattutto a inizio partita.


    Eserciti Rianimati

    Abbiamo fatto cambiamenti anche agli Eserciti Rianimati. Sebbene la narrativa sia abbastanza interessante, in pratica sbloccare un nuovo tipo di esercito - da ricercare tramite una tecnologia separata - è stato un po' deludente. Per questo, abbiamo pensato a qualche modifica:
    • Ora potere costruire Dread Encampments fin da subito. Nazioni che iniziano con questa Civic ne avranno uno costruito sul pianeta iniziale.
    • Dread Encampments ora sono più utili: forniscono 2 (prima 1) lavori da Necromante e i Necromanti ora producono 6 sia di ricerca Società che ricerca Fisica (prima 4), anche se il numero di Armate Difensive è stato ridotto da 4 a 3.
    • Costruire un Dread Encampment rimpiazza i vostri Eserciti Difensivi in Eserciti Non-Morti Difensivi, che sono più forti.
    [​IMG]

    • Quando sconfiggete un esercito nemico organico in battaglia, ora avrete il 33% di possibilità di resuscitarli come Eserciti Non-Morti Offensivi
    • Per finire, se un Esercito Non-Morto sconfigge i Voidspawn o la Matriarca Tiyanki, ora c'è la possibilità di resuscitarli!
    [​IMG]


    Questo è tutto per oggi, ma tornate in futuro per leggere in nostri piani per la patch Lem!

    Stellaris Dev Diary #217 - Custodians Feedback and Q&A Transcript
    Ciao, comunità di Stellaris!

    Dall'annuncio dell'Iniziativa Guardiani, abbiamo visto molti buoni messaggi su cosa vorreste che i Guardiani si occupassero e noi abbiamo grandi idee su come lavorare per migliorare il gioco. Il Team della Comunità sta lavorando a un piano per collezionare feedback e capire dove la Comunità vorrebbe che i Guardiani lavorassero, oltre al feedback sul lavoro svolto. Ne abbiamo discusso a lungo, ma non vorremmo aggiungere altre piattaforme e complicare troppo le cose.
    Alla fine abbiamo deciso di separare il feedback in due categorie separate: Feedback Sollecitati e Feedback della Comunità.

    Feedback Sollecitato

    Mentre raccoglievano le idee, abbiamo creato delle discussioni di prova per il feedback sul forum. Hanno funzionato così bene che abbiamo deciso di mantenerle, anche se forse le sposteremo in un subforum di Feedback separato dove solo i dipendenti Paradox possono creare discussioni, ma dopo tutti gli utenti possono rispondere. Queste discussioni di feedback diretto seguiranno il formato generale di quelle create finora.

    Esploreremo opzioni con gli amministratori del forum, come l'uso di reazioni, per capire quali risposte sono le più popolare e aggiungere questa metrica alla nostra raccolta di feedback.
    É importante capire i tempi necessari: lo sviluppo di videogiochi è un processo lungo, non è semplicementeSviluppatore cambia qualcosa -> la QA verifica sia a posto -> il contenuto viene rilasciato ufficialmente. In molte circostanze, lo sviluppo di una specifica meccanica è un processo che richiede mesi dove l'intelaiatura di una meccanoca viene spiegata in documento prima che il codice sia scritto.

    La fase iniziale di disegno è il momento migliore per raccogliere feedback dalla Comunità, dato che non si è ancora iniziato a scrivere codice. Anche se questo è buono per lo sviluppo, è importante mitigare le aspettative della comunità riguardo le tempistiche: in generale raccoglieremo feedback per 1 o 2 patch del futuro.

    Usando la patch Lem (chiamata così per Stanislaw Lem) come esempio, il disegno della patch è completato a questo punto e quello della patch successiva è ampiamente in corso (spoiler alert: sarà più piccola rispetto a Lem - Lem ha avuto molto più tempo ed è molto più ampia delle prossime patch dei Guardiani).

    Tuttavia, nei prossimi mesi creeremo discussioni di feedback su vari argomento probabilmente relativi a patch successive a quella invernale. É importante anche capire che quando chiediamo feedback su un particolare argomento, questo non vuol dire necessariamente le modifiche proposte verranno eseguite.

    Suggerimenti della Comunità

    Questo è qualcosa che avremmo voluto leggere sul forum e non siamo rimasti delusi! Abbiamo visto nascere molte discussioni su cambiamenti proposti al team dei Guardiani, ma collezionare il feedback da dozzine di discussioni diverse, senza metriche su quello che la Comunità vuole/non vuole richiede molto tempo e assorbirebbe molte delle ore delle persone preposte a gestirlo.

    Anche in questo caso non abbiamo voluto reinventare la ruota, usando piattaforme diverse dal forum.

    Anche se vogliamo raccogliere il feedback dalla Comunità, non vogliamo metterci nella posizione in cui la Comunità si aspetta che una meccanica venga implementata perché ha ricevuto X voti. Ci sono molti fattori che determinano se un suggerimento possa essere implementato.

    Il nostro piano è usare l'esistenteForum dei Suggerimenti per questo tipo di Feedback della Comunità. Alla fine di ogni patch, ci sarebbe un rapporto per il team dei Guardiani su quali suggerimenti sono stati i più votati e dopodiché i voti verrebbero riportati a zero per tutti.

    Non c'è garanzia che qualcosa di votato appaia poi nel gioco ed è importante mitigare le aspettative, sia riguardo le tempistiche, sia riguardo l'ampiezza delle future patch. Ricordo che la fase di disegno precede di molto la scrittura del codice e i suggerimenti potrebbero essere aggiunti come "extra".

    Quando aggiungerete suggerimenti nel relativo forum, è importante tenere conto dell'ampiezza delle modifiche richieste e del tempo necessario per effettuarle. Grandi cambiamenti che richiedono l'intervento di artisti, programmatori e content designer saranno meno considerate rispetto a piccoli cambiamenti come "aggiungi bottone x alle IU". Tuttavia, come già detto, non vogliamo dare alcuna garanzia su quali suggerimenti verranno poi implementati nel gioco, ma vi assicuro che li leggeremo con attenzione e che li apprezziamo enormemente!

    Q&A Transcript

    Abbiamo tenuto il nostro primo Q&A Dev sul Discord di Stellaris lo scorso mercoledì. Grazie a tutti coloro che hanno partecipato e fatto domande. Abbiamo ricevuto 185 domande e abbiamo risposto a circa il 40% dei esse, rifiutandone solo 12 come inappropriate (un numero che ritengo molto basso). Vorrei ringraziare la Comunità anche per aver rispettato i Dev e il loro tempo.

    I Dev si sono divertiti molto a rispondere e spero di poter ripetere l'esperimento in futuro. Come promesso, ecco la trascrizione completa della Q&A:

    Question by ResCXsention:
    Any chance for more unique events to be added?
    Answer
    Of course! We are always looking to add more events. For instance, there will be a few more that a player can randomly encounter as any empire coming up in the Lem update.

    Question by Val:
    With the announcement of Custodians can we expect the balance and diversity of player builds to receive more attention, especially since Stellaris have a noticeable multiplayer scene?
    Answer
    Yes
    Answered by
    Caligula
    Question by Naysmith:
    With Become the Crisis, we got a new wincondition beyond last empire / score, and a new crisis. Are there plans for more winconditions and crises?
    Answer
    No current plans, but we think the idea of victory conditions like we added in Nemesis was fun. Doing it allowed us to explore the ideas further, so it makes it easier to explore in the future.
    Answered by
    Daniel Moregård
    Question by Serwerty:
    The CORE Stellaris problem is a "technology rush" gameplay. All are tied to technology, but technology isn't tied to anything. My question is simple when technology will depend on the economy (technology require certain materials), buildings (specialised research labs -> only social or physic or engineering), or other way's to get science - like conquered worlds will give bonus science or steal technologies)?
    Answer
    We don't currently have any plans to add more specific resource requirements to technologies, especially ones that are very much rng-driven. But we are considering several different options for making a tech rush not quite as oppressive as it can be right now. No promises for now though.

    Question by Solo:
    While it be possible for people playing multiplayer to co-op play empires in the possible future?
    Answer
    No current plans, and I'm not sure how difficult it would be to make that work. Some of our other games do support it, so I imagine its not too far out of the realms of what's possible. We love the idea of being able to play co-op on the same empire tho.

    Question by MathyM:
    Are there improvements to UI coming? Specifically to add more keyboard shortcuts, so I can use a mouse and scroll wheel less. It’s really hurting my hand at times [​IMG]
    Answer
    Time and again UI comes up as something people want improved. I myself use tiny UI at home How we're going to go about improving is up in the air but expect more on it.

    Question by caboosecorsair:
    What plans are there to add more ship sets or section types to the game?
    Answer
    By ship sets, if you mean the ones we add in new species packs, then yes. We'll keep making more ship sets while we have good ideas for them. It's very unlikely we'll add more ship sections, however, since that would need to be added for each already existing ship set. It's just not worth the cost.

    Question by ThatGuy:
    [Could we see larger maps for next gen consoles and further mp and sp optimization]
    Answer
    unfortunately we are the PC Stellaris team and don't have any insight into that :c.

    Question by Helicopter200:
    Will Hivemind and Machine primitives will be added in the game?
    Answer
    Not planned right now, but added to my idea notepad. Like the idea of regressed robots.

    JoJo (QA Lead)
    Question by Naysmith:
    I heard something about possibly getting to pick Traditions beyond the default replacements. Any more information on that?
    Answer
    We'll talk more about the new tradition trees in detail after summer, but I can hint that Mercantile is one of them.
    Answered by
    Daniel Moregård
    Question by Liggi:
    Are there any plans to revisit piracy mechanics? Or potentially add some QoL like splitting fleets + patrols in the Outliner?
    Answer
    Nothing specific to talk about yet, but something we are discussing.
    Answered by
    JoJo (QA Lead)
    Question by Solo:
    What are the current plans for future additions to old species packs if there are any?
    Answer
    With Lithoids and Necroids, the extra content such as traits and origins we added alongside the species portraits has been received very well, so with the Custodians initiative, one of our aims is to get Plantoids and Humanoids closer to the level of these two. There will be more dev diaries soon outlining some of the additions!
    Answered by
    Caligula
    Question by Cloudread:
    Will major expansions, such as utopia and apocalypse, receive updates by the custodian team? Or will it just be species packs?
    Answer
    It mostly depends on what the Custodian team thinks can bring value to the players. If the Custodians have good ideas, or are passionate about improving something, it can be from any DLC. It should be worth to keep in mind, however, the actual value you are providing. A popular DLC like Utopia might be less appropriate for improvements vs. a DLC that is less popular.

    Question by smokey03:
    will there be more vanilla mega structures planned
    Answer
    Nothing yet. But not a bad idea.
    Answered by
    JoJo (QA Lead)
    Question by ThatGuy:
    [ Is it possible we may see new types of ships such as a frigate? ]
    Answer
    It's very unlikely we'll add new ship types due the reason that they would need to be added for all pre-existing ship sets, which would make it very costly and time-consuming.
    Answered by
    Daniel Moregård
    Question by Confederacy Of Osprania:
    will we ever get an ability to become a fallen empire if we progress through the game enough?
    Answer
    Being a Fallen Empire doesn't really fit in the current gameplay loop, at best it would represent your empire after "losing".
    Answered by
    pdx_fkirsek
    Question by Reedstilt:
    Will any of the new material from the board game make its way into the main game? For example, the board game is adding a new "Time Master" Crisis - could we see something like that appearing as mid-game or end-game Crisis eventually?
    Answer
    No current plans, but we're certainly not opposed to it. The specific example of a Crisis may be more unlikely, depending on how complex it is.
    Answered by
    Daniel Moregård
    Question by Turelus:
    now that older packs are getting some additional love, will Synthetic Dawn get any new machine portraits as it's currently the most lacking in options with all being tied/linked to base species types?
    Answer
    Synthetic Dawn is kind of a mini expansion on its own right now. If we revisit it, I think the priority will be on things like machine uprising and the like. But definitely not against the idea of more portraits.
    Answered by
    JoJo (QA Lead)
    Question by Guilliman:
    Any chance some time gets allocated for more traits in general? I am enamored by the new artificer trait. I LOVE the roleplaying aspect of a trait changing a job name as well as provide the bonus! More traits that change job names and functions to cool things would vastly expand the roleplaying aspect.
    Answer
    Obviously I won't spoil our future plans, but in general, we agree, its a very cool way of adding flavor and a little bit of uniqueness to certain empires and possibly even add a new playstyle. So, its definitely something I could see us adding more in the future.

    GruntsPlayground
    Question by Ben the Fox:
    As a big fan of Hiveminds, it appears that there is sadly not a lot of content for them in the base game and it's rather disappointing. Are there any plans to add more content for them in the future? (Such as new civics, orgins, ascension perks, etc).
    Answer
    Since Hive Minds are a part of Utopia, and not the base game, it makes it difficult to add new content for them in future DLCs. We don't want cross-dependencies and requirements between DLC if we can avoid it. That said, it doesn't mean we can't or won't add new content for Hive Minds. It's an example of something the Custodians could improve.

    What are your plans with the game now?

    Our plans is to keep making Stellaris bigger and better!

    Question by Asiak:
    Is there any chance you would reconsider the proposed Admin Cap removal and Unity buy down idea?
    Answer
    Nothing is written in stone, if we implement it and it's rubbish in our internal testing then it'll be dropped. But we reserve the right to make unpopular decisions
    Answered by
    JoJo (QA Lead)
    Question by Darkwing:
    Question from a modder's perpective: Why is it that species rights and diplomatic actions can not be added by script? I reckon there must be some reason behind it that's not immediately obvious.
    Answer
    When something cannot be added by script, it's often because the content works in specific or heterogeneous ways that cannot be done in script in a practical way. Some diplomatic actions have their own UI for example, which can only really be done in code. We could perhaps make it possible in the future to let modders add diplomatic actions and species rights that are more generic and don't require code support, but the system is not designed around that and it's not something that we are currently working on.

    Answer
    Ensign. No bonuses to the player or AI. settings wise just the default settings as you boot up the game.

    Question by Asbeltrion:
    Have you considered to allow players to chose how many crisis they want in their game?
    Answer
    Although we love the idea of multiple crises, it's not something we can promise. Crises are very complex content systems that are very time-consuming to work with. Allowing multiple Crises would sort of mean we support it, which may be a can-of-worms in terms of how much support it may need to not break due to many edge-cases.

    Espionage has a great base, but feels a little empty currently. Are there plans to expand the number of Operations available for Espionage? And/or beef up the current ones?
    Answer
    Espionage is a new system that we added that is expandable through adding new operations. When deciding on what to work on next, we consider the different types of content that we have, and Espionage is one of the types of content that we could consider in future updates.

    Question by Solo:
    Are there any ideas for new mid game and/or end crises planned or spoken of as of currently?
    Answer
    Without entirely ruling it out, something we have found with the variety of existing midgame and endgame crises is that maintaining them has been quite challenging. So, what with the complexity of the task of also adding a new crisis, at the moment our time is probably better spent making the existing crises work better.

    Just curious, how high on the priority list is adding a new crisis?

    Probably very low, due to how complex and expensive it can be to create that type of content. It may not be worth it, compared to other things (like adding content to Hive Minds, or new events etc.).

    Question by ASpec:
    Stellaris seems to be entering a new era with the team knowing exactly what the game is. Has this always been the case? Was there a period where there was a struggle on where to take the game itself? And in extension of that has this changed from game director (Henrik, Martin, Daniel) to game director?
    Answer
    Working on Stellaris has definitely been an exploratory progress for a long time. Even though I think we have a much better idea of what Stellaris is now, than what we had 5 years ago, we are still learning and still trying out new ideas. Stellaris still has lots of room to grow and to change. In terms of how its changed between game directors, it's a bit harder to say. Each director has things they personally like, which will influence how the game is developed. In terms of Stellaris, its very hard to say how the game would look if Henrik Fåhraeus would have still been game director, for example. From my perspective, having been on Stellaris since a long time ago, I think Stellaris has had some form of "natural" progression in terms of how its evolved.

    Question by Darkwing:
    Who are the custodians and how is their team structured?
    Answer
    The Custodians are just members of the Stellaris team who are assigned to it, not anything outsourced, external etc. The QA team is a subteam that still reports to me for example. Structure right now resembles mostly the same as the Expansion team, however we are very much aware that framework will need adjusting for the more regular release cadence.
    People on the Custodians Team are also not locked into working on the next patch either, it's a fluid environment and people can move around.

    Answer
    While I disagree that its only Battleships that are worthwhile right now, the fleet meta has become quite stale and especially Destroyers and Cruisers are underutilized compared to what we would like to see. We are considering our options in that regard, brainstorming, reading through feedback, experimenting. Don't expect a quick solution in the near future. It's a delicate issue and we want to actually fix it and not just turn the Meta-Wheel to the next stage.

    Question by Tamwin5:
    You mentioned Utopia might be a bad DLC to add stuff because it's already so popular, but hive minds are severely lacking civics, and many of the ones they do have are bland. Are hives getting left by the wayside, or do you have a solution planned?
    Answer
    It is true that Gestalts can often fall by the wayside. As a content designer, I know first hand that enabling a piece of content for hive minds or machines adds about 75% more effort each for content designers. So we always have to be a bit selective in what we enable for Gestalts, as it's always a question of where our time is best spent. That said, it is certainly the case that Hives could see some love in terms of civics and origins, and for instance with the Lem update we will be added Hiveminded Necrophages. We don't have any plans for wider changes at the moment, but it is something that certainly could fall within the remit of the Custodians again in future.

    Question by Awang Budiman:
    *The optimal fleet composition seems to be battleships, battleships, battleships, and the occasional corvette. All the other ship class became irrelevant because the battleship can do it better. This makes the 'ship game' rather dull.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #218 - Plantoids Gameplay
    Ciao a tutti!

    Spero abbiate passato un'ottima estate! Il team sta tornando al lavoro per completare la patch Lem in tempo per il rilascio di Settembre.

    Come detto nel dev diary 214, vogliamo aggiungere funzionalità a DLC esistenti. Oggi parleremo di cosa la patch Lem porterà al Plantoids Species Pack.

    [​IMG]

    Aggiungeremo 2 nuove Civics e 3 nuovi Tratti di Specie al Plantoids Species Pack. Partiamo dai nuovi Tratti.

    Nuovi Tratti
    Abbiamo aggiunti 3 nuovi tratti disponibili se la Specie è Plantoide o Fungoide.

    [​IMG]

    Nuovi tratti e loro costo.
    Phototrophic: mutualmente esclusivo con Radiotrophic, trasforma parte del costo di mantenimento in cibo in costo in Energia. Solo per Plantoidi o Fungoidi.

    [​IMG]

    Radiotrophic: mutualmente esclusivo con Phototrophic,trasforma parte del costo di mantenimento in cibo in costo in Energia. Inoltre rende utile abitare Mondi Tomba, dove il costo in Energia viene rimosso. Solo per Plantoidi o Fungoidi.

    [​IMG]


    Budding: questo tratto permette di assemblare POP, anche di un'altra specie. Ad esempio due specie con Syncretic Evolution Origin possono assemblare insieme una delle due. Questo tratto è probabilmente ottimo per Menti Alveari.

    [​IMG]

    Nuove Civics
    Queste due nuove Civic sono disponibili per imperi normali e per Menti Alveari. Solo Idyllic Bloom èdisponibile solo se la Specie è Plantoide o Fungoide.

    Catalytic Processing: questa Civic permette di produrre Leghe dal Cibo invece che da Minerali. I Distretti iniziali di chi inizia con questa Civic sono diversi per essere bilanciati. Imperi normali e Menti Alveari convertono 9 Cibo in 3 Leghe. Imperi Machine trasformano 12 Cibo in 4 Leghe.

    [​IMG]

    Catalytic Processing is available to many types of empires, but not all of them.
    Idyllic Bloom: questa Civic permette di trasformare pianti in Mondi Gaia costruendo dei Gaia Seeders e aggiornandoli. I Gaia Seeders hanno 4 fasi e con la quarta e ultima parte la terraformazione del pianeta in un mondo Gaia. Disponibile per Imperi Regolari e Menti Alveari.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #219 - Selectable Traditions
    Saluti, fan dello spazio!
    Oggi parliamo di miglioramenti al sistema delle Tradizioni, come annunciato nel dev diary 214.

    Selezionare le vostre Tradizioni
    Non vogliamo semplicemente aggiungere nuovi Alberi delle Tradizioni, perciò abbiamo rivisto il sistema per renderlo più aperto ai cambiamenti.

    Vediamo i cambiamenti, ma tenete conto che nulla è finalizzato e manca la parte grafica. Accettiamo feedback.
    [​IMG]

    Ora non sarete più limitati ai soliti 7 alberi di Tradizioni (con alcune sostituzioni), ma potrete scegliere quali Alberi vanno nei 7 slot disponibili.

    [​IMG]


    Alcuni degli Alberi delle Tradizioni che era in precedenza sostituti di altri (come Adattabilità al posto di Diplomazia) sono ora scelte disponibili. Quindi ad esempio Adattabilità è ora disponibile anche per imperi non-machine. Sincronicità continua a essere esclusiva con Armonia (la prima solo per imperi gestalt, la seconda per gli altri). Versatilità è disponibile per tutti imperi machine.

    Cambiamenti a Tradizioni esistenti

    Domination
    • Judgment Corps: non previene più il crimine, ma con questo gli Enforcer producono 1 Unity.
    • Privy Council: aumenti limite Editti di +1.
    • Finisher: non più +1 Influenza mensile, ma +20% admin cap. Per tutti gli imperi.

    Diplomacy
    • Open Markets sostituito da Diplomatic Networking: ambasciate ora producono 3 Unity
    • Secure Shipping sostituito da Eminent Diplomats: accettazione diplomatica +5 ed Emissari che stanno Migliorando Relazioni hanno 1% probabilità al mese di ottenere un Favore dall'impero obiettivo.
    • Insider Trading sostituito da Trust or Bust: Trust Cap +50, Trust Growth +33%
    • Finisher: non aumenta più Trust Cap o Trust Growth, ma aumenta Peso Diplomatico di 10% e Emissari +1

    Harmony
    • Mind and Body: ora aumenta anche Leader Skill Cap di +1
    • Kinship: effetto su tempo demozione aumentato da -50% a -75%
    • Bulwark of Harmony spostato in Unyielding, sostituito da Harmonious Directives: +1 Edict Cap

    Supremacy
    • Adoption: non più Starbase Cap +2, ma ora Naval Cap +20
    • The Great Game: vecchi effetti rimossi, ora aumenta danni a Starbases di +20%

    Prosperity
    • Finisher: non più Lavori da Mercanti, ma aumenta Stabilità +5 e Pop Resource Output +5%. Per tutti i tipi di impero.

    Nuovi Alberi di Tradizioni
    Aggiungiamo 3 nuovi Alberi di Tradizioni: Mercantile, Unyielding and Subterfuge. Subterfuge è sbloccato dal DLC Nemesis, Unyielding è sbloccato dal DLC Apocalypse, e Mercantile (originariamenti sbloccato dal DLC Megacorp) è disponibile per tutti. La ragione è che ora le Politiche Commerciali sono sbloccate da questo Albero. Non potrete più convertire Trade Value in Energia + Beni Commerciali ameno che non abbiate la tradizione (3) Adaptive Economic Policies.

    [​IMG]

    Mercantile (per tutti)
    • Adopt: Starbase Collection Range +1, Trade Protection +5
    • (1) Trickle Up Economics: Clerks forniscono +1 Trade Value
    • (2) Commercial Enterprises: edificio Commercial Zones ora fornisce 1 Merchant Job. Lo stesso vale per Distretti Commerciali di Mondi Anello e Habitat.
    • (3) Adaptive Economic Policies: può convertire parte del Trade Value in Unity o Beni Commerciali
    • (3) (swap) Federal Trade Fleets: sostituto per membri di una Federazione Lega Commerciale. Aumenta contributo alla flotta di +50%, come per Entente Coordination.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #220 - Additions to Humanoids Species Pack

    Oggi parliamo di aggiunte allo Humanoids Species Pack.

    Partiamo dai Civic aggiunti.

    Masterful Crafters

    [​IMG]


    Il Civic Masterful Crafters, accennato nel Dev Diary 214, sostituisce Artisans con Artificiers. Questi producono Beni Commerciali come gli Artisans, ma aggiungono anche Trade Value e Engineering Research. Non disponibile per Imperi gestalt.

    [​IMG]


    Inoltre questa aggiunge slot di edifici a Distretti Industriali.

    Esiste una versione analoga anche per Megacorporazioni.

    Pleasure Seekers

    [​IMG]


    La seconda Civic, Pleasure Seekers, fornisce accesso allo Standard di Vita detto Stile di Vita Decadennte, che aumenta Felicità e costo in Beni Commerciali per tutti i POP coinvolti.

    [​IMG]


    Inoltre, il lavoro di Intrattenitore ora fornisce +1% Pop Growth e i Servitori ora forniscono +5 Amenities.

    [​IMG]


    Esiste una versione analoga anche per Megacorporazioni.


    Vediamo ora la nuova Origine:
    Clone Army

    [​IMG]


    Cosa fare quando sopravvivi ai tuoi creatori? A questa domanda cerca una risposta la Clone Army origin.

    Come Clone Soldiers, il vostro impero sarà pronto alla guerra, anche se all'inizio non avrete nemici. Le vostre vite e la vostra continua esistenza dipendono dagli edifici Ancient Clone Vat buildings, che sostengono la vostra popolazione.

    [​IMG]

    C'è un limite al numero di Ancient Clone Vats che potete avere nel vostro impero, ovvero 5.

    [​IMG]


    Ora, potete comportarvi da bravi soldati-cloni e fare la guerra come siete stati creati per fare, oppure potete esplorare i segreti della vostra storia. La scelta sarà vostra.

    Oh, potete combinare Clone Army sia con Masterful Crafters che con Pleasure Seekers.

    Queste 3 aggiunti non dipendono dal ritratto. Alcune però hanno restrizioni legate a etiche o altre civic.

    ----

    Ci vediamo al prossimo Dev Diary.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #221 - Balance and Quality of Life Improvements
    Ciao gente, io sono @Alfray Stryke, un membro del Team di QA per Stellaris. Come parte del lavoro dei Guardiani per la patch 3.1 “Lem”, come detto nel Dev Diary #215, il team sta controllando il bilanciamento e la qualità-della-vita per varie meccaniche del gioco e vorremmo presenterare i cambiamenti maggiori. Questa non è una lista completa e può contenere dei numeri non finalizzati. Anche i cambiamenti al Necroids Species Pack di cui parla il Dev Diary #216 saranno inclusi nella patch Lem.

    Void Dwellers


    Sappiamo che l'implementazione dei Void Dwellers con due tratti separati, uno positivo e uno negativo, ha portato a un comportamento che non ci piace - in particolare a rimuovere geneticamente il tratto negativo. Per risolvere questa situazione abbiamo fatto dei cambiamenti:

    • Ora c'è un singolo tratto Void Dweller, quindi non si può sfruttare la modifica genetica della specie
    • Il modificatori sono cambiati, prima erano:
      • +15% Risorse da Lavoratori e Specialisti & -10% velocità di crescita (per il tratto positivo)
      • -60% velocità di crescita (per il tratto negativo)
    • La nuova versione unificata è:
      • +15% Pop Resource Output su Habita.
      • -15% Pop Resource Output su Mondi Non-Artificiali
      • -10% Velocità di Crescita
      • -30% Felicità su Mondi Non-Artificiali

    [​IMG]

    Il nuovo tratto Void Dweller coi suoi modificatori

    Questo significativo che i vostri POP Void Dwellers sono produttivi e felice sugli Habitat, hanno il bonus di produttività rimosso sui Mondi Anello e hanno penalità a produzione e felicità sui pianeti (meglio lasciarli a immigrati o robot!)

    Shattered Ring

    Prima di prendere le vostre forche al plasma (sì le forche al plasma sono canon ora), ri-bilanciare l'Origine Shattered Ring è in discussione da tempo. Abbiamo cercato di ridurre il potere iniziale dell'Origine pur mantenendo la fantasia originale e alla fine abbiamo creato una progressione per Shattered Ring simile a quella dell'Origine Remnants.

    [​IMG]

    La Tecnocrazia Voor, che mostra un Segmento Infranto di Mondo Anello come pianeta di origine.

    L'anello infranto accetta i seguenti tipi di distretto:
    • Città, Alveare & Nexus - abitazioni in base al tipo di impero
    • Industriale - dove creare beni di consumo e leghe
    • Commercio - dove impiegati e artigiani portano denaro
    • Generatore (non presente nell'immagine) - dove menti alveari e intelligenze machine potenziano l'infrastruttura. Notate che distretti Generatori e Commercio sono alternativi in base a chi possiede l'anello, come un Mondo Anello normale
    • Agricoltura - dove si crea il cibo
    • Miniere - ne parliamo a breve

    Dopo aver rimosso tutte le macerie, ci sarà spazio per 25 distretti.

    Vi chiederete "A cosa servono i distretti miniera? cosa estraggono?"
    La risposta è l'anello stesso!

    [​IMG]

    Distretti miniera, ovvero tunnel pieni di minerali e leghe

    Essendo una civiltà che ha conosciuto solo la vita sull'anello prima di ottenere il viaggio spaziale, le uniche risorse disponibili sono quelle di cui è composto l'anello stesso. Fortunatamente mondi anello rovinati sono enormi e possono sopravvivere senza alcuni materiali senza cadere verso il sole locale.

    Pertanto i distretti minerari su anelli infranti rimpiazzano i normali lavori da minatori con lavori da minatori di rottami con un output di base di 2 minerali e 1 lega al mese.

    Come detto vogliamo che la progressione per l'anello infranto assomigli a quella del mondo reliquia dell'origine Remnants. Quindi dopo aver rimosso tutti i detriti dell'anello infranto e aver ricercato la tecnologia appropriata potete riparare l'anello per ripristinare un Mondo Anello completamente funzionante.

    [​IMG]

    Ovviamente a volte bisogna fare delle riparazione a casa propria.

    Dopo aver completato questo compito monumentale, i distretti del mondo infranto sono aggiornati al corrispondente distretto di mondo anello a un rapporto di 5:1 - quindi 5 distretti di agricoltura diventano 1 segmento di agricoltura. Dato che riparare l'anello vuole dire non poterne più recuperare i materiali, i distretti minerari sono rimossi e viene aggiunta la possibilità di creare segmenti di ricerca.

    Cambiamenti qualità-della-vita e Ecumenopoli

    Abbiamo ricevuto un sacco di feedback sull'assegnazione dei distretti industriali quando un pianeta diventa un Ecumenopoli.

    Prima della3.1, si assumeva che tutti i distretti industriali fossero devoti alla produzione di leghe e quindi convertiti in archeologie fonderie. Non più, nella 3.1 i distretti industriali sono convertiti in base alla designazione del pianeta:

    • Con la designazione “Mondo Fonderia”, i distretti industriali sono convertiti in archeologie fonderie con un rapporto di 2:1
    • Con la designazione “Mondo Fabbrica”, idistretti industriali sono convertiti in archeologie fabbriche con un rapporto di 2:1
    • Con ogni altra designazione, compresa “Mondo Industriale”, i distretti industriali sono convertiti sia in archeologie fonderie che fabbriche, con un rapporto di 4:1:1

    [​IMG]

    Terra, un reliquia di un tempo lontano, pronta a essere restaurata.

    [​IMG]

    Earth, restaurata! Notate che l'algoritmo governativo locale non ha presunto che tutte le capacità industriali debbano sostenere la Flotta Guardiana.

    Un'altra modifica implementata è che l'Ascension Perk Progetto Archeologia e la decisione di restaurare mondi reliquia in Ecumenopoli sono ora accessibili ai Rogue Servitors. In aggiunta, le Archeologie per il tempo libero sono state modificate per contenere bio-trofei in torri lussureggianti.

    [​IMG]

    Le coccole saranno fornite al Piano 314, Stanza 15 alle 9:26.


    Varie modifiche qualità-della-vita

    Come detto sopra, la designazione planetaria per i beni di consumo è ora diventata "Mondo Fabbrica", perché abbiamo aggiunto una designazione "Mondo Industriale".

    [​IMG]

    Tante designazioni planetarie per varie necessità

    La nuova designazione "Mondo Industriale" è ideale per pianeti dove non volete focalizzare i distretti industriali in un singolo tipo di di Lavoro, fornendo invece un piccolo sconto al mantenimento sia di Artigiani che Metallurgisti.

    [​IMG]

    Designazione "Mondo Industriale"

    Sia i Mondi Alveari che i Mondi Machine hanno ottenuti bonus aggiuntivi per renderli più vicini ai Mondi Gaia. I Mondi Alveari ora hanno un +1 innato Lavoro Spawning Drone mentre i Mondi Machine ora hanno un +1 innato Lavoro Replicator. Il Mondo Machine fornito dall'Origine Resource Consolidation inizia con uno slot bloccato che una volta rimosso fornisce il posto di Lavoro Replicator.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Culti Sovversivi (MegaCorporazioni con sia Vangelo delle Masse che Sindacato Criminale) non hanno più accesso al Tempio della Prosperità. Invece ora possono creare un Altare Sovversivo nelle loro Filiali - aumentando sia l'attrazione per l'etica Spiritualista che il Crimine su quel pianeta.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sovvertire le aspettative con offerte così buone che sono quasi criminali!

    Con questo passo il testimone a @Gruntsatwork per discutere i cambiamenti ai Civic!

    ----

    Ciao a tutti. Sono uno dei Game Designers che al momento sta lavorando su Stellaris nel team dei Guardiani. Anche se siamo stati occupati con scelte radicali qui e là, nuovi Civic e Origini, abbiamo anche voluto bilanciare le Civic esistenti, soprattutto per quelle anomale e sotto o sovra utilizzate.

    La seguente lista contiene Civic che sono state rafforzate:
    Imperi Normali
    • Beacon of Liberty: forniva +15% Unity prodotta -> ora fornisce ANCHE -15% Empire Sprawl from Pops
    • Imperial Cult: forniva +1 Edict cap -> ora fornisce +2 Edict cap
    • Idealistic Foundation: forniva +5% Happiness -> ora fornisce +10% Happiness
    • Environmentalist: forniva -10% Consumer Goods Upkeep -> ora fornisce -20% Consumer Goods Upkeep
    • Parliamentary System: forniva +25% Faction Influence -> ora fornisce +40% Faction Influence
    • Efficient Bureaucracy: forniva +10% Admin Cap -> ora fornisce +20% Admin Cap
    • Nationalistic Zeal: forniva -10% War Exhaustion Gain e -10% Claim Cost -> ora fornisce -20% War Exhaustion Gain e -15% Claim Cost
    • Functional Architecture: forniva -10% Building and District Cost, -10% Building and District Upkeep e +1 Building Slot -> ora fornisce -15% Building and District Cost, +2 Building Slots, riduzione Upkeep rimossa
    Menti Alveari
    • Subspace Ephase: forniva +15% Naval Capacity -> ora fornisce +20% Ship Speed e ANCHE +15% Naval Capacity
    • Divided Attention: forniva +10% Admin Cap -> ora fornisce +20% Admin Cap
    Intelligenze Machine
    • Constructobot: forniva -10% Building and District Cost, -10% Building and District Upkeep e+1 Building Slot -> ora fornisce -15% Building and District Cost, +2 Building Slots, riduzione Upkeep rimossa
    Speriamo che questi cambiamenti aumentino l'appeal di questi Civic, pur avendo modificato solo numeri.

    Ora, questo non risolve tutti i problemi, quindi abbiamo anche deponteziato i 2(3) Civic considerati "obbligatori":
    • Slaver Guilds : ridotta popolazione schiavizzata da 40% a 35%
    • Indentured Assets: ridotta popolazione schiavizzata da 40% a 35% (Megacorp)
    • Technocracy: aggiunto costo di mantenimento di 1 Bene di Consumo per Lavoro di Scienziati che creano Unity grazie alla Tecnocrazia

    Come potete vedere, le prime due sono modifiche minore rispetto alle terza. Lo scopo è rendere queste Civic leggermente meno attraenti, ma non vogliamo certe renderle inutile. L'idea è farle passare dalla categoria "da scegliere ogni volta" a quella "potenziali scelte, in base alle circostanze".

    Ascolteremo il vostro feedback qui e sulle altre piattaforme oltre alla nostra telemetria e continueremo a lavorare sul bilanciamento.

    Come nota finale, ci sono altre Civic che potrebbero essere rafforzate e ci lavoreremo, ma non per la patch Lem.

    Questo è tutto per questa settimana. Settimana prossima torneremo a parlare di cambiamenti della patch Lem.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #222 - Moddability Updates in LEM
    Benvenuti a un altro DD sul Modding di Stellaris! Oggi vi parlerò delle nuove caratteristiche del linguaggio di scripting in arrivo con la prossima patch 3.1.

    Abbiamo già detto che le Tradizioni saranno moddabili, con meno problemi legati a interfaccia e localizzazione. Posso confermare che ora è anche possibile sbloccare nuovi Alberi di Tradizioni in base a decisioni prese nel gioco. Ma oggi parleremo soprattutto di variabili

    Variabili

    Già nella scorsa patch abbiamo aggiunti vari modi per salvare informazioni nel gioco, ma ne mancavano alcuni utili come trigger, ad esempio il numero di POP di un pianeta. Eravamo anche limitati nel modo di usare le variabili, soprattutto se guardavamo a giochi più recenti come CK3. Per finire, la sintassi per usarle non era ideale in molte situazioni.


    Con la 3.1, abbiamo aumentato il potere delle variabili. Prima di tutto il formato: prima per ottenere il valore dovevamo riferirci alle variabili stesse, ora possiamo fare più cose:
    Codice:
        value = my_var                                 #gets the value of my_var variable set on the current scope
        value = from.capital_scope.my_var              #gets the value of the my_var variable set on from’s capital
        value = trigger:num_pops                       #gets the number of pops in the current scope
        value = from.capital_scope.trigger:num_pops    #gets the number of pops in from’s capital
    
    Ora potere fare "dot scoping" e potere fare riferimento ai trigger contrigger:<trigger>. Disponibile solo per trigger che controllano un numero, senza { }.

    (rimosso il brutto formato per copiare variabili tra "scope": "value = { scope = x variable = y }")

    La patch 3.0 aveva già un effetto,export_trigger_to_variable, ma solo per il potere della flotta. Era un prototipo, abbiamo espanso la funzionalità per tutti i trigger simili. Si possono anche valutare trigger complessi, con {}, pur comparando un singolo numero:
    Codice:
        export_trigger_value_to_variable = {
            trigger = num_assigned_jobs
            parameters = {
                job = miner
            }
            variable = num_miner_jobs
        }
    
    3.0 aveve anche aggiunto modi per ottenere valori dal gioco e metterli in variabili e aveva aggiunto posti dove usarli, ad esempio come moltiplicatori diadd_resource eadd_modifier. Con la 3.1, abbiamo aggiunto tanto nuovi modi per usare variabili:
    • valori in trigger che controllano singoli numeri, e.g. "num_pops > my_variable", "intel = { who = from value < trigger:num_pops }"
    • valori in effetti che usano singoli numeri, e.g. "add_experience = my_variable".
    • come moltiplicatore in "triggered resource tables" (e.g. in un edificio):
    Codice:
         resources = {
            category = planet_buildings
            cost = {
                trigger = { <triggers> }
                minerals = 100
            }
            multiplier = my_var/owner.trigger:num_pops
        }
    
    • In MTTH/AI Chance modifiers:
    Codice:
         ai_chance = {
             factor = 1
             modifier = {
                add/factor = my_var/trigger:num_pops
                is_variable_set = my_var
             }
         }
    
    • add_modifier ora ha anche time_multiplier che si può usare
    • In ordered_script_lists: lascio spiegare la documentazione:
    Codice:
    ordered_owned_fleet - Iterate through each fleet owned by the country - executes the enclosed effects on one of them for which the limit triggers return true. Picks the specific object according to the order specified (position 0, order_by = trigger:num_pops would run the effects on the X with the most pops)
    ordered_owned_fleet = {
        limit = { <triggers> }
        position = <integer, starting with 0>
        order_by = <variable>/trigger:<trigger>
        inverse = yes/no (default: no - if yes, then 0 is lowest rather than highest)
        <effects>
    }
    Supported Scopes: country
    [LIST]
    [*]Se il numero non è intero lo si può arrotondare con round_variable_to_nearest
    [/LIST]
    
    Un riassunto di queste funzionalità è stato aggiunto nel folder events (e allegato a questo DD - N.d.AC: vedi post originale su forum Paradox). In futuro potremmo fare ulteriori espansioni. Noi ne abbiamo già approfittato, e.g.:
    • Migliorate ricompense per Death Cult: rimosse circa 1000 linee di script pur considerando più fattori
    • Corretta ricompensa in contanti per Golden Rule: prima c'era solo una tenue connessione con l'investimento, ora non più
    • Migliorata la Sfida di Scienza per il Controllo di una Federazione: aggiunti il numero di tech ricercate e di tech ripetibili ricercate come fattori
    • e altro
    Cambiamenti a Sprite Sheet

    Vecchi elementi del gioco usano sprite sheet per icone - un sistema dove una lista di icone sta su una sola linea e specifichiamo quale usare. Abbiamo avuto problemi anche noi in passato e i modder non possono sovrascrivere facilmente, solo un mod può usarla.
    Abbiamo cambiato il riferimento all'indice perché usino il sistema normale. Abbiamo già fatto l'aggiornamento per tipi di esercito, tipi di automazione colonia, tipi di bombardamento e (con grande difficoltà) dimensioni nave.

    Esempio:
    Codice:
        spriteType = {
            name = "GFX_ship_size_military_1"
            sprite_sheet_sprite_type = "GFX_ship_sizes"
            default_frame = 2
        }
    
    Questo richiederà un aggiornamento per i mod che modificavano tali oggetto, ma in futuro questo causerà meno problemi per tutti!

    Randomicità

    Alcuni hanno notato che in alcuni casi non sempre random_list era randomizzata davvero. Abbiamo risolto questo e altri problemi, ad esempio in loop while o every_x che ogni volta sceglievano lo stesso effetto. Abbiamo quindi risolto:
    - il problema con on_actions like on_game_start e se dovessimo rifare lo stesso errore in futuro, il gioco ci avvertirà
    - Loop while e every_x loops ora maggiormente randomici
    - abbiamo aggiunto per sicurezza un effetto reroll_random

    Altra roba figa


    Ora possiamo anche aggiungere "triggered pop modifiers" ai traits, come un bonus a una classe di pianeti e malus a un'altra classe. Questo ci ha permesso di unire i due tratti dei Void Dwellers in uno che si applica diversamente in base al pianeta su cui si trova.

    Anche la nuova Origine Clone Army fa cose nuove. E quanto fatto per essa può essere riutilizzato, ad esempio per:
    • avere specie bloccate su un singolo genere
    • avere un limite per impero per un certo edificio (e cambiarlo durante la partita)
    • è stata aggiunta una regola, “should_force_decline_species”, che fa diminuire una specie su un pianeta in base a certe condizioni e impedisce migrazione verso un pianeta dove diminuirebbe.

    Per finire abbiamo aggiunto un sacco di nuovi effetti, trigger e modificatori. Ecco i più importanti:
    Codice:
    [LIST]
    [*]set_visited = <system> - reveals a system to you, without you having surveyed it
    [*]set_saved_date - lets you save a specific date (can be in the future) so that you can use it in locs, similar to variables: [This.my_saved_date].
    [*]Technically, the last effect is actually adding a <scope>_flag, so the standard flag effects and triggers have been ported over to all scopes
    [*]You can now use [loc] commands in button effects, which apparently will be very useful for dynamic modded UIs
    [*]You can define descriptions for districts, buildings, jobs and special projects through desc = { text = X trigger = { Y } } now. They also now take loc commands.
    [*]We deleted has_non_swapped_tradition and has_tradition_swap, and consolidated them into has_active_tradition. Modders: do a search-replace!
    [*]Every scope that lacked script flags (e.g. country_flag) now has them. Also, variables work in all scopes now too.
    [*]Note for updating mods: count_diplo_ties is now count_relation, count_armies is count_owned_army or count_planet_army (depending on the case). any/every/random_mining_station/research_station have also been removed, because they were nonsense. Use simply mining_station/research_station/orbital_station scope change instead. Also, observation_outpost no longer takes a "limit", but you can say "exists = observation_outpost" as compensation.
    [/LIST]
    
    Aggiungere tutte queste funzionalità è stata una manna per noi del Team dei Guardiani e le stiamo lentamente applicando a vecchie parti del gioco che potrebbero beneficiarne. Spero che continueremo a farlo in futuro e allo stesso sono eccitato e spaventato da quello che potranno farne i modder!

    Un'ultima cosa: il vecchio trigger_docs.log è ora deprecato e invece abbiamo un nuovo e più completo folderscript_documentation i cui contenuti sono allegati a questo posto (N.d.AC: vedi post originale su forum Paradox).

    Come forse alcuni sanno, abbiamo già dato un'anteprima della patch Nemesis ai Modder e questo ci ha fatto avere ~10 mod aggiornati il giorno del rilascio, per un totale di circa 1.6 milioni di iscritti, e siamo molto felici per il risultato e per la reazione della comunità. Potremmo espandere questo esperimento in futuro. Per Lem stiamo pensando di aggiungere un'altra decina di Modders all'esperimento early-access. Se siete interessati potete compilare il Modder Early Access Request form.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #223 - Release Date and Patch Notes for the 3.1 Lem Update

    [​IMG]



    Ciao a tutti!

    Prima di tutto, siamo lieti di annunciare che la patch 3.1 “Lem”, così chiamata in onore dello scrittore di fantascienza Stanisław Lem, sarà rilasciata il 14 Settembre! Abbiamo chiamato questa patch “Lem” per onorare il 100esimo anniversario della nascita di Stanisław Lem.

    Questo è il primo rilascio per il Team dei Guardiani e siamo sicuri che sarà un'esperienza interessante mentre continuiamo a lavorare, iterare e definire come dovrebbe essere un rilascio dei Guardiani. Vorrei dire due parole per chiarire le aspettative per il futuro:

    Su questa patch abbiamo lavorato per molto tempo, come potrete vedere dall'ampio changelog, ma i futuri aggiornamenti del team dei Guardiani saranno probabilmente meno ampi. Vogliamo puntare a piccoli rilasci più frequenti, come detto all'annuncio dell'iniziativa dei Custodi. Ora che abbiamo fatto il primo rilascio, puntiamo a farne un altro tra 3 mesi. Dato che il tempo a disposizione inferiore, questo porterà a una patch meno corposa.

    Tuttavia, io lo vedo come qualcosa da celebrare! Dato che non dobbiamo più aspettare 6 mesi per un rilascio, possiamo fare le cose più velocemente e rispondere al feedback della comunità più facilmente!



    Il team ci ha messo l'anima in questa patch vi assicuro che faremo lo stesso anche in futuro. Ecco a voi quindi le patch notes per la 3.1:

    # Balance

    ###################

    * Sectors released as vassals from megacorps are now released as Oligarchies with the Merchant Guilds civic and one or two random civics (depending on their technology).

    * Removed stability modifier from Memorialist building and added it to Memorialist job instead.
    * Death Cult sacrifice bonuses now depend to a far greater degree on the % of your population you have just put to death (rather than on the sheer number of sacrifices). They will generally be far more impactful in the early game.
    * Death Cult: number of Mortal Initiate jobs from upgraded buildings reduced to 2 and 3 from 3 and 5, as your demographics can usually not sustain massacring 5 pops per planet every decade.

    * Indentured Assets: Reduced enslaved population from 40% to 35% (Megacorp civic)
    * Technocracy: Added 1 Consumer Goods upkeep to Scientist Jobs that create unity because of Technocracy
    * Non-homicidal Necrophages no longer start with two extra pops. (The purifier and swarm variants keep it, since they lose a few pops during the purge).
    * Necrophages can now only have Stone, Bronze or Iron Age primitives as their guaranteed planets. These planets are also guarded by a few more defence armies than they usually would be.
    * The Necrophage Elevation Chamber no longer provides a planet stability bonus.

    * Rebalanced Pop costs for Caravaneer events to better reflect pop growth changes.
    * Rebalanced pop rewards and costs of multiple events to better reflect pop growth changes.
    * Reduced the pop requirement for Executive Retreat and Xeno-outreach Agency to better reflect the current pop system.
    * Prosperity traditions finisher no longer provides merchant jobs or gestalt jobs, but rather increases planet stability by+5 and pop resource output by +5%.
    * Reworked and rebalanced how some rare events are fired: e.g. repeatedly entering and exiting systems will no longer eventually guarantee certain events.
    * Tweaked carrying capacity formula to make housing usage modifiers more useful again (instead of taking total housing, it now takes total pops plus free housing).
    * Reduced the benefit orbital stations and starbase constructions receive from technologies when gathering resources.
    * Planetary designations that provided build cost modifiers now instead provide upkeep modifiers.
    * Urban World designation now reduces the upkeep of buildings and districts instead of affecting industrial district cost.
    * Refinery designation now increases production rather than reducing upkeep.
    * Added an Industrial World planetary designation that provide reduced benefits to both alloy and consumer good production, and do not shift jobs. The existing "Industrial World" is renamed "Factory World".
    * Automatic planetary designation selection will no longer be quite so sure that Refinery Worlds are what you really need more than anything else right now.
    * The Shattered Ring starting segment is now a size 25 habitable world with normal districts. Housing, Generator, Trade, Industrial and Farming districts present will convert to Ringworld Districts at a 5:1 ratio when the Ringworld is restored.
    * Buildings and districts that add bio-trophy jobs no longer add to carrying capacity, since having bio-trophies that use no housing will now increase carrying capacity already.
    * Reduced exorbitant fees for using Golden Rule federation elections (i.e. the money you get from distributing or appropriating the pot now more closely corresponds to the pot).
    * Industrial districts now convert into Foundry Arcologies and Factory Arcologies depending on the planetary designation.
    * The final level of capital building now unlocks all 4 corporate building slots (up from 3).
    * Judgment Corps domination tradition no longer increases crime prevention, but rather makes Enforcers produce 1 Unity.

    * Colonial Viceroys domination tradition now also increases monthly influence by +0.5.
    * Sacrificial Temples are now limited to 5 per planet.
    * Halved the minerals from mining The Interloper.

    * Made it so that empires can't get worthless buildings from Reverse-Engineering Arcane Technologies.

    ###################
    # Performance and Stability
    ###################

    * Added a sanity check to prevent a possible crash when closing the game during gameplay.
    * Extend the timeout for client to respond to the startgame message so they wouldn't be kicked out the session by the host.
    * Fixed an Out of Sync error on hotjoin.
    * Significantly reduced the freeze caused by spawning the L-Gate.

    ###################
    # UI
    ###################

    * Changed humming ambient sound in main menu to "Ambient" category and volume.
    * Added indications in the UI (purge tooltip in species rights and planet view) as to how likely pops are to escape your current purge type, so long as the chance is not 0% or 100%.
    * There is no longer a "Close" button on diplomatic events, so you can no longer accidentally close important decisions by hitting "Esc" to e.g. save.
    * In the pop selection within the planet interface, you can now see how much of their output comes from buildings such as Mineral Processing Centers (which increase mineral output by lump sums), as well as how much of their upkeep is from edicts.
    * Various job modifiers have been improved to indicate Gestalt alternatives and similar variations.
    * The left-hand navigation bar will remain in a collapsed state when the mouse is left hovering, after making a menu choice.
    * Fixed so it's possible to click the lock icon when leftbar/navbar is in expanded state.
    * Switched the presentation order of Alloys and Consumer Goods in various UI contexts to match the order in the top bar.
    * Added clearer information on when you will next be able to use certain espionage operations in tooltips.
    * Added information on when the next Necrophage Elevation Ceremony will be on their elevation buildings' tooltips.
    * Corrected several errors in the tooltips for setting or unsetting a forced assembly species (specifically in the amount of assembly progress you will lose).
    * Fixed UI for Operation Sabotage Starbase.
    * The game will now tell you that the game is ready to start in the hotjoining interface (where previously there would be no message after "synchronizing game").
    * Food from deposits should now be possible to see on the map.
    * Added Hyperlane Opacity slider, defaulting to 0.3.
    * Clone Vats building is now sorted under Pop Assembly in the Construct Building list.
    * Tweaked colors of Restricted systems names to be slightly more readable.

    ###################
    # AI
    ###################

    * The AI will now cancel espionage operations for which it lacks the available spy power / infiltration level.
    * AI can now build 4-6 construction & science ships depending on how well it is doing financially, meaning some empires will expand and have their mining stations quicker than others.
    * The AI should now upgrade its fleets during peacetime.
    * AI now waits 15 years to fully take over the player.
    * Improve AI human takeover behavior:
    * * No naval bonus from difficulty in takeover.
    * * AI does not colonize after takeover
    * * AI does not destroy buildings after takeover.
    * * AI stops building armies after takeover
    * * AI stops building starbases & starbase modules after takeover
    * * AI stops buying & selling pops after takeover
    * * Code:
    * * * AIs taking over for a human player now take that into account when deciding on buildings to construct.
    * * * AI now considers building caps when deciding on what buildings to construct.
    * * * Removed the Upkeep check for approximation because of locking itself out of building certain stuff in deficit
    * * Script:
    * * * Reduced amount of jobs allowed to build new stuff
    * * * Increased scores for deficit, focus & amenities building weights
    * * * Reduced weight for pop buildings
    * * * Economic plans now favor less research and more stability and economic balance
    * * * Added a job weight for low income for artisan jobs
    * * * Increased job weight for technicians for low income situations
    * * * Reduced low income threshold for miner jobs
    * Economic plan fixed for hive & gestalt.
    * AI now cares more about energy & alloys. Added a building limit define.
    * The AI can now propose targeted Galactic Community resolutions even if they do not have Terrible or Excellent opinion of the target.
    * Changed the way that AI weight of Galactic Community resolutions is affected by opinion towards target and proposer, so that it is a multiplicative value instead of additive.
    * Increase the amount of saved credits.
    * Allow 10% over admin cap.
    * Don't build starbases on income below 100.
    * Consolidate economic plans & better subplans. Instead of economic plans based on time passed the AI now checks its own economic situation in order to adapt its strategy. As in, if I’m low on consumer goods I will not build research facilities.

    ###################
    # Modding
    ###################

    # Variables

    * In places where you use the value of a variable, you can now generally use "trigger:<any simple value trigger>" or "scope.another_scope.my_variable" (or a combination of the two: "capital_scope.trigger:num_pops" would work).
    * Made variables work in the last few scopes they didn't previously work in.
    * Overhauled how triggers using a single numerical value work. You can now do the following with them:
    * * Check against another scope for which the trigger would be valid, e.g. num_pops = from.owner.
    * * Check against a variable in the current scope, e.g. num_pops = my_saved_variable.
    * * Save the value the trigger would return true at (i.e. with = operator) as a variable, e.g. export_trigger_value_to_variable = { trigger = num_pops variable = my_var } => sets my_var to 61 if the current empire has 61 pops. For triggers using { }, you can specify parameters in “parameters = { }”
    * Enabled the use of variables for values in effects using a single numerical value work. E.g. add_experience = my_var
    * Changed format of check_variable_arithmetic considerably to let you specify multiple parameters (including e.g. multiple add parameters).
    * Added round_variable_to_nearest effect, in case you don't want to set something to 47.152
    * Added a time_multiplier parameter to add_modifier, so that you can multiply your number of days/months/years by a variable.
    * Added ordered_script_lists. So you can order, say, all playable countries, by their number of pops and run an effect on the one with the most, least, or e.g. 3rd most pops.
    * Enabled use of variables in all "modifier = { factor = X }" calculations.
    * Triggered resource tables can now take a "multiplier = variable" parameter, e.g. "produces = { multiplier = my_var energy = 100 }".
    * You can now use variables for the count parameter in "count_country" and the like.
    * Fixed multipliers for add_modifier in country scope (it worked elsewhere fine, just not in country scope...).
    * Simplified check/set/add/multiply/etc_variable to use the new format for "value". I.e. you don't need to specify = { } for complicated things anymore (in fact that won't work) but should instead use dot scoping.

    # Other

    * Consolidated has_non_swapped_tradition and has_swapped_tradition triggers into a single has_active_tradition trigger.
    * Added define for maximum allowed number of tradition category selections.
    * Added potential trigger to tradition categories.
    * Added num_researched_techs and fixed a bug where num_repeatable_techs wouldn't count you researching multiple levels of the same tech.
    * Special projects can now take triggered descriptions.
    * Fixed the AI being able to pick is_dialog_only event options and therefore escape the consequences of an event.
    * Defensive armies now have a pop-scope spawn_chance, so that you can control a bit better which ones are spawned.
    * Added save_detail_ai_build_plan console command.
    * Added reroll_random effect, which can be used in cases where random_lists would return the same result multiple times, but don't use in places where the random is used in tooltips as the result in the tooltip is likely to be wrong.
    * Adoption and Finisher tooltips of Tradition trees are now automatically generated.
    * Added ability to specify a numerical empire_limit for buildings (and have it show nicely in tooltips, like the planet cap).
    * Corrected spelling of "is_for_colonizable" and "colonizable_planet".
    * Added triggered pop modifiers for species traits.
    * Added defense_platform_modifier to Starbases.
    * save_ai_build_plan_details now also saves the decisions to ai.log.
    * Added fire_and_forget parameter to Resolutions.
    * Added num_sapient_pops trigger for planet and country scopes.
    * The clone_leader effect now copy the event leader and immortality flags.
    * Added parameter in starbase levels to exclude them from trade collection, so that trade collection range modifiers in country scope can be useful.
    * Added country_hostile_claim_influence_cost_mult modifier.
    * Added starbase_defense_platform_capacity_mult modifier.
    * Colony type icons now take keys instead of numbers.
    * Added num_tradition_categories trigger.
    * Created a triggered planet modifier that only works for pop_growth_speed.
    * Added on_actions for on_tradition_picked and on_ascension_perk_picked.
    * Added set_visited effect to make you able to see a solar system you have never visited before, also fixed the "no" case of set_surveyed.
    * Added triggered desc = { } for districts (to overwrite the base district, not to added an extra line to the tooltip as in the current triggered_desc).
    * Added set_saved_date effect.
    * Added script flags (with effects and triggers as usual) to all scopes missing them.
    * You can now use scripted loc in the names of button effects.
    * Added hostile_<type>_difficulty_add and hostile_<type>_difficulty_mult modifiers.
    * Added hostile_<category>_difficulty_add and hostile_<category>_difficulty_mult modifiers.
    * Added espionage_hostile_operation_difficulty_add and espionage_hostile_operation_difficulty_mult modifiers.
    * Added espionage_hostile_operation_cost_add and espionage_hostile_operation_cost_mult modifiers.
    * Added use_armynames_from to army types (works like use_shipnames_from in ship sizes).
    * Added a modifier diplo_action_acceptance_add that increases AI acceptance of all diplomatic actions.
    * Added on_building_downgraded on_action.
    * set_name now works on sectors and wars.
    * Added add_blocker effect (which unlike add_deposit will let you have control over which deposit the blocker will block).
    * Rephrased pop_can_live_on_planet trigger to can_live_on_planet (working in either pop or species scope, and taking a planet event target rather than a boolean).
    * added triggers "is_starbase_building_module" and "is_starbase_building_building" checking if the scoped starbase is building a specific item.
    * added trigger "starbase_buildable_is_in_queue_before" to check if a buildable is in queue before another. Scope is starbase.
    * Split has_system_trade_value trigger into that (and fixed a case where it would return the wrong number), has_collected_system_trade_value and has_uncollected_system_trade_value.
    * Fixed various issues with setting species archetype restrictions for government elements (civics, authorities) so that it is now checked in every case and can be used safely.
    * The effect "change_species_characteristics" can supports "add_trait", "remove_trait" and "add_traits_at_start_of_list"-flag.
    * Added effects to set a country's ruler title or heir title to a specified value, and to restore them to default.
    * Added should_remove_response_message_when_not_possible property for diplomatic actions, to remove response messages of the diplo action type if the possible check fails.
    * trigger_docs has been split between its components, which are now in their own subdirectory. Modifiers are now also in their own log file.
    * Fixed a bug where using a solar system as a location on various effects (e.g. enable_special_project) would not work but also not give an error log message. It now sets the location at the primary star in that system.
    * Added documentation for certain advanced scripting functionalities in scripted_effects/99_advanced_documentation.txt.
    * Added GetFossil and GetFossilPlural loc keys for species.
    * Added Civics and Origins "species_class" condition. Old "species" requirement is now called "species_archetype" instead.
    * Added galcom_member and council_member script lists.
    * Replaced AI define RESOLUTION_WEIGHT_OPINION_FACTOR with multiple other defines.
    * Replaced use of icon_frame in army types with sprites.
    * Changed observation_outpost into a scope change rather than a trigger/effect. This means it can be used on the right hand side of effects and triggers, e.g. exists = observation_outpost. On the other hand, "limit" no longer works on it, and it will no longer refer to every observation outpost in the country from country scope.
    * Removed any/every/random_mining_station/research_station as you should use just mining_station/research_station instead (more efficient).
    * Added on_action on_country_released_in_war.
    * LOGISTIC_POP_GROWTH_CEILING, REQUIRED_POP_GROWTH_SCALE, and REQUIRED_POP_ASSEMBLY_SCALE defines have been removed as they have been replaced by sliders in galaxy generation.
    * Traits can now be restricted to a Species class (e.g. fungoid).
    * Removed need for bombardment_stances to use icon_frame. The game will now look for a sprite called GFX_planet_modifier_ground_support + <key>.
    * Planet classes also now use "icon = <sprite>" instead of icon_frame.
    * Removed hardcoding of species archetype behaviour. Relevant happiness and growth modifiers are now automatically generated. (Note: a few of them have changed name slightly, and "robotic = yes" has been shifted from species classes to species archetypes).
    * Added on_star_system_destroyed on_action (called at the start of destroy_star_system).
    * Added orbital_station script list for country and system scopes.
    * The detail view shown when clicking ambient objects will no longer cut off text longer than a couple of lines.
    * Removed count_diplo_ties, as it is the same as count_relation but used older code.
    * Removed count_armies as it is the same as count_owned_army and count_planet_army but with older code.
    * Removed use of icon_frame in non-starbase ship sizes. It now only does something on starbases. Other ship sizes use "icon = key", which will look up several individual sprites; modders can therefore add new ships without overwriting the sprite sheet dds file.
    * Allowed you to define triggered descriptions for jobs and buildings.
    * Ambient Object descriptions can now take [loc.GetProperty] commands.
    * Added game_rule should_force_decline_species, which if true will set a species to decline on a planet regardless of purge status or overcrowding.
    * Fixed on_army_killed_in_combat so it can't be called multiple times per army.* In certain cases where one would use "mult" in weight scripting, you now should use "factor" (the game will warn you on startup in error.log).
    * Added has_climate trigger for planets.
    * Added abort_trigger for event chains (the ones in common/event_chains).
    * Fixed issues with scopes when using finish_site and finish_current_stage archaeology effects.
    * Added GetRemnantName/GetSpeciesRemnantName for cases where you really want your dead robot not to leave a skeleton.
    * Improved the randomness of random functions within while loops and every_x loops.
    * The "after" effect in events will no longer fire when an "is_dialog_only" option is picked (making it fire multiple times for the same event).

    * Reduced the pop requirement for Executive Retreat and Xeno-outreach Agency to better reflect the current pop system.
    * Prosperity traditions finisher no longer provides merchant jobs or gestalt jobs, but rather increases planet stability by+5 and pop resource output by +5%.
    * Reworked and rebalanced how some rare events are fired: e.g. repeatedly entering and exiting systems will no longer eventually guarantee certain events.

    * Planetary designations that provided build cost modifiers now instead provide upkeep modifiers.
    * Urban World designation now reduces the upkeep of buildings and districts instead of affecting industrial district cost.

    * Added an Industrial World planetary designation that provide reduced benefits to both alloy and consumer good production, and do not shift jobs. The existing "Industrial World" is renamed "Factory World".
    * Automatic planetary designation selection will no longer be quite so sure that Refinery Worlds are what you really need more than anything else right now.
    * The Shattered Ring starting segment is now a size 25 habitable world with normal districts. Housing, Generator, Trade, Industrial and Farming districts present will convert to Ringworld Districts at a 5:1 ratio when the Ringworld is restored.

    ###################
    # Performance and Stability
    ###################

    ###################

    * Changed humming ambient sound in main menu to "Ambient" category and volume.

    * There is no longer a "Close" button on diplomatic events, so you can no longer accidentally close important decisions by hitting "Esc" to e.g. save.
    * In the pop selection within the planet interface, you can now see how much of their output comes from buildings such as Mineral Processing Centers (which increase mineral output by lump sums), as well as how much of their upkeep is from edicts.
    * Various job modifiers have been improved to indicate Gestalt alternatives and similar variations.
    * The left-hand navigation bar will remain in a collapsed state when the mouse is left hovering, after making a menu choice.
    * Fixed so it's possible to click the lock icon when leftbar/navbar is in expanded state.
    * Switched the presentation order of Alloys and Consumer Goods in various UI contexts to match the order in the top bar.

    * Added information on when the next Necrophage Elevation Ceremony will be on their elevation buildings' tooltips.
    * Corrected several errors in the tooltips for setting or unsetting a forced assembly species (specifically in the amount of assembly progress you will lose).
    * Fixed UI for Operation Sabotage Starbase.
    * The game will now tell you that the game is ready to start in the hotjoining interface (where previously there would be no message after "synchronizing game").

    * Clone Vats building is now sorted under Pop Assembly in the Construct Building list.

    ###################
    # AI
    ###################

    * The AI will now cancel espionage operations for which it lacks the available spy power / infiltration level.
    * AI can now build 4-6 construction & science ships depending on how well it is doing financially, meaning some empires will expand and have their mining stations quicker than others.
    * The AI should now upgrade its fleets during peacetime.
    * AI now waits 15 years to fully take over the player.
    * Improve AI human takeover behavior:
    * * No naval bonus from difficulty in takeover.
    * * AI does not colonize after takeover
    * * AI does not destroy buildings after takeover.
    * * AI stops building armies after takeover
    * * AI stops building starbases & starbase modules after takeover
    * * AI stops buying & selling pops after takeover
    * * Code:
    * * * AIs taking over for a human player now take that into account when deciding on buildings to construct.
    * * * AI now considers building caps when deciding on what buildings to construct.
    * * * Removed the Upkeep check for approximation because of locking itself out of building certain stuff in deficit
    * * Script:
    * * * Reduced amount of jobs allowed to build new stuff
    * * * Increased scores for deficit, focus & amenities building weights
    * * * Reduced weight for pop buildings

    * * * Added a job weight for low income for artisan jobs
    * * * Increased job weight for technicians for low income situations
    * * * Reduced low income threshold for miner jobs
    * Economic plan fixed for hive & gestalt.

    * The AI can now propose targeted Galactic Community resolutions even if they do not have Terrible or Excellent opinion of the target.
    * Changed the way that AI weight of Galactic Community resolutions is affected by opinion towards target and proposer, so that it is a multiplicative value instead of additive.
    * Increase the amount of saved credits.
    * Allow 10% over admin cap.
    * Don't build starbases on income below 100.
    * Consolidate economic plans & better subplans. Instead of economic plans based on time passed the AI now checks its own economic situation in order to adapt its strategy. As in, if I’m low on consumer goods I will not build research facilities.

    ###################
    # Modding
    ###################

    # Variables

    * In places where you use the value of a variable, you can now generally use "trigger:<any simple value trigger>" or "scope.another_scope.my_variable" (or a combination of the two: "capital_scope.trigger:num_pops" would work).
    * Made variables work in the last few scopes they didn't previously work in.
    * Overhauled how triggers using a single numerical value work. You can now do the following with them:
    * * Check against another scope for which the trigger would be valid, e.g. num_pops = from.owner.
    * * Check against a variable in the current scope, e.g. num_pops = my_saved_variable.
    * * Save the value the trigger would return true at (i.e. with = operator) as a variable, e.g. export_trigger_value_to_variable = { trigger = num_pops variable = my_var } => sets my_var to 61 if the current empire has 61 pops. For triggers using { }, you can specify parameters in “parameters = { }”
    * Enabled the use of variables for values in effects using a single numerical value work. E.g. add_experience = my_var
    * Changed format of check_variable_arithmetic considerably to let you specify multiple parameters (including e.g. multiple add parameters).
    * Added round_variable_to_nearest effect, in case you don't want to set something to 47.152
    * Added a time_multiplier parameter to add_modifier, so that you can multiply your number of days/months/years by a variable.
    * Added ordered_script_lists. So you can order, say, all playable countries, by their number of pops and run an effect on the one with the most, least, or e.g. 3rd most pops.
    * Enabled use of variables in all "modifier = { factor = X }" calculations.
    * Triggered resource tables can now take a "multiplier = variable" parameter, e.g. "produces = { multiplier = my_var energy = 100 }".
    * You can now use variables for the count parameter in "count_country" and the like.
    * Fixed multipliers for add_modifier in country scope (it worked elsewhere fine, just not in country scope...).
    * Simplified check/set/add/multiply/etc_variable to use the new format for "value". I.e. you don't need to specify = { } for complicated things anymore (in fact that won't work) but should instead use dot scoping.

    * Consolidated has_non_swapped_tradition and has_swapped_tradition triggers into a single has_active_tradition trigger.
    * Added define for maximum allowed number of tradition category selections.
    * Added potential trigger to tradition categories.

    * Special projects can now take triggered descriptions.
    * Fixed the AI being able to pick is_dialog_only event options and therefore escape the consequences of an event.
    * Defensive armies now have a pop-scope spawn_chance, so that you can control a bit better which ones are spawned.
    * Added save_detail_ai_build_plan console command.
    * Added reroll_random effect, which can be used in cases where random_lists would return the same result multiple times, but don't use in places where the random is used in tooltips as the result in the tooltip is likely to be wrong.
    * Adoption and Finisher tooltips of Tradition trees are now automatically generated.
    * Added ability to specify a numerical empire_limit for buildings (and have it show nicely in tooltips, like the planet cap).
    * Corrected spelling of "is_for_colonizable" and "colonizable_planet".
    * Added triggered pop modifiers for species traits.
    * Added defense_platform_modifier to Starbases.
    * save_ai_build_plan_details now also saves the decisions to ai.log.

    * Added num_sapient_pops trigger for planet and country scopes.

    * Added starbase_defense_platform_capacity_mult modifier.
    * Colony type icons now take keys instead of numbers.
    * Added num_tradition_categories trigger.
    * Created a triggered planet modifier that only works for pop_growth_speed.
    * Added on_actions for on_tradition_picked and on_ascension_perk_picked.
    * Added set_visited effect to make you able to see a solar system you have never visited before, also fixed the "no" case of set_surveyed.
    * Added triggered desc = { } for districts (to overwrite the base district, not to added an extra line to the tooltip as in the current triggered_desc).
    * Added set_saved_date effect.
    * Added script flags (with effects and triggers as usual) to all scopes missing them.
    * You can now use scripted loc in the names of button effects.
    * Added hostile_<type>_difficulty_add and hostile_<type>_difficulty_mult modifiers.
    * Added hostile_<category>_difficulty_add and hostile_<category>_difficulty_mult modifiers.
    * Added espionage_hostile_operation_difficulty_add and espionage_hostile_operation_difficulty_mult modifiers.
    * Added espionage_hostile_operation_cost_add and espionage_hostile_operation_cost_mult modifiers.
    * Added use_armynames_from to army types (works like use_shipnames_from in ship sizes).
    * Added a modifier diplo_action_acceptance_add that increases AI acceptance of all diplomatic actions.
    * Added on_building_downgraded on_action.
    * set_name now works on sectors and wars.
    * Added add_blocker effect (which unlike add_deposit will let you have control over which deposit the blocker will block).
    * Rephrased pop_can_live_on_planet trigger to can_live_on_planet (working in either pop or species scope, and taking a planet event target rather than a boolean).
    * added triggers "is_starbase_building_module" and "is_starbase_building_building" checking if the scoped starbase is building a specific item.
    * added trigger "starbase_buildable_is_in_queue_before" to check if a buildable is in queue before another. Scope is starbase.
    * Split has_system_trade_value trigger into that (and fixed a case where it would return the wrong number), has_collected_system_trade_value and has_uncollected_system_trade_value.
    * Fixed various issues with setting species archetype restrictions for government elements (civics, authorities) so that it is now checked in every case and can be used safely.
    * The effect "change_species_characteristics" can supports "add_trait", "remove_trait" and "add_traits_at_start_of_list"-flag.
    * Added effects to set a country's ruler title or heir title to a specified value, and to restore them to default.
    * Added should_remove_response_message_when_not_possible property for diplomatic actions, to remove response messages of the diplo action type if the possible check fails.
    * trigger_docs has been split between its components, which are now in their own subdirectory. Modifiers are now also in their own log file.
    * Fixed a bug where using a solar system as a location on various effects (e.g. enable_special_project) would not work but also not give an error log message. It now sets the location at the primary star in that system.
    * Added documentation for certain advanced scripting functionalities in scripted_effects/99_advanced_documentation.txt.
    * Added GetFossil and GetFossilPlural loc keys for species.

    * Replaced AI define RESOLUTION_WEIGHT_OPINION_FACTOR with multiple other defines.
    * Replaced use of icon_frame in army types with sprites.
    * Changed observation_outpost into a scope change rather than a trigger/effect. This means it can be used on the right hand side of effects and triggers, e.g. exists = observation_outpost. On the other hand, "limit" no longer works on it, and it will no longer refer to every observation outpost in the country from country scope.
    * Removed any/every/random_mining_station/research_station as you should use just mining_station/research_station instead (more efficient).
    * Added on_action on_country_released_in_war.
    * LOGISTIC_POP_GROWTH_CEILING, REQUIRED_POP_GROWTH_SCALE, and REQUIRED_POP_ASSEMBLY_SCALE defines have been removed as they have been replaced by sliders in galaxy generation.
    * Traits can now be restricted to a Species class (e.g. fungoid).
    * Removed need for bombardment_stances to use icon_frame. The game will now look for a sprite called GFX_planet_modifier_ground_support + <key>.
    * Planet classes also now use "icon = <sprite>" instead of icon_frame.
    * Removed hardcoding of species archetype behaviour. Relevant happiness and growth modifiers are now automatically generated. (Note: a few of them have changed name slightly, and "robotic = yes" has been shifted from species classes to species archetypes).
    * Added on_star_system_destroyed on_action (called at the start of destroy_star_system).
    * Added orbital_station script list for country and system scopes.
    * The detail view shown when clicking ambient objects will no longer cut off text longer than a couple of lines.
    * Removed count_diplo_ties, as it is the same as count_relation but used older code.
    * Removed count_armies as it is the same as count_owned_army and count_planet_army but with older code.
    * Removed use of icon_frame in non-starbase ship sizes. It now only does something on starbases. Other ship sizes use "icon = key", which will look up several individual sprites; modders can therefore add new ships without overwriting the sprite sheet dds file.
    * Allowed you to define triggered descriptions for jobs and buildings.
    * Ambient Object descriptions can now take [loc.GetProperty] commands.
    * Added game_rule should_force_decline_species, which if true will set a species to decline on a planet regardless of purge status or overcrowding.
    * Fixed on_army_killed_in_combat so it can't be called multiple times per army.* In certain cases where one would use "mult" in weight scripting, you now should use "factor" (the game will warn you on startup in error.log).
    * Added has_climate trigger for planets.
    * Added abort_trigger for event chains (the ones in common/event_chains).
    * Fixed issues with scopes when using finish_site and finish_current_stage archaeology effects.
    * Added GetRemnantName/GetSpeciesRemnantName for cases where you really want your dead robot not to leave a skeleton.
    * Improved the randomness of random functions within while loops and every_x loops.
    * The "after" effect in events will no longer fire when an "is_dialog_only" option is picked (making it fire multiple times for the same event).

    Per coloro che non hanno Stellaris ma sono curiosi di provarlo, fino alla fine di questo weekend (lunedì 20 settembre escluso immagino) è possibile giocare gratis al gioco base Stellaris su Steam.

    La stessa cosa vale per HOI4, se qualcuno fosse interessato.

    Stellaris Dev Diary #224 - Lem is out, what now?
    Ciao a tutti!

    La prima patch del team dei Guardiani è stata appena rilasciata e speriamo che vi stia piacendo sperimentare le modifiche introdotte. Stiamo entusiasti del fatto che molti di voi sembrino felici per l'Iniziativa dei Custodi e per la patch Lem. Come sempre, il vostro feedback è molto importante per noi, quindi fateci sapere cosa ne pensate. Grazie anche a quelli di voi che hanno lasciato recensioni su Steam di recente, è bello sapere che così tanti di voi siano contenti del gioco.

    Per quanto riguarda la 3.1, siamo al corrente di alcuni exploit che sono stati trovati e continueremo a monitorare quello che comunità riuscirà a trovare nel weekend. Settimana prossima esamineremo quello che è venuto fuori e dopodiché decideremo se fare un hotfix ed eventualmente con quali contenuti.

    Siamo ancora focalizzati sul rilascio e stiamo imparando da quello che abbiamo fatto. Nelle prossime settimane inizieremo a parlare dei piani per il futuro, in termini di meccaniche e cambiamenti al gioco, quindi rimanete sintonizzati!

    Per voi ecco una serie di bellissimi sfondi associati a questo rilascio!

    La settimana scorsa hanno tenuto un'altra sessione Q&A sul nostro server Discord. Potete leggere la trascrizione qua:
    Question by jugyeong!
    Since now Commercial Zones give 1 merchant jobs if you go through mercantile tradition, does Commerce Megaplexes give 2 merchant jobs and 6 clerk jobs?
    Answer
    Yes, it's +1 to the number of Merchant jobs the building provides for both tiers.
    Answered by
    Alfray Stryke (QA)

    Question by Captain Cape!
    For the clone army origin, will there be any way to increase the limit of 5 ancient cloning vats?
    Answer
    At present, no, but it is set up in such a way as that would be easy to implement, should we (or modders) want to in future.
    Answered by
    Caligula

    Question by UMAR!
    Are there any plans to change the way ship-experience works? In the current system ships get 100 starting xp if the fleet academy starbase-building is built on the shipyard and then 1 xp per day in battle. I myself cannot say to ever have seen a ship that made it to the Veteran rank at 1000xp (900 days in actual combat! (and that's just the second rank out of 3, the last one is 10.000!)).

    Question by Antmanton!
    Any chance of a defense platform rework? They're too expensive early-game, and too fragile late-game. Also, can we get a tab in the Fleet Manager for mass-management, ie showing Starbases as "fleets" where we can queue, build/reinforce, and upgrade platforms across the empire from one screen?
    Answer
    There's certainly a chance of it at some point! I (and I think most people on the design team) would agree with your analysis there, so it's on the radar for the Custodians in general, but so are a lot of things, so no promises at all on when.

    Question by MathyM!
    Are there plans for more keyboard shortcuts, or improved support for modding controls? There is too much mouse movement and scrolling right now, it would be great to use our keyboards for microing.
    Answer
    There are technical issues limiting how we can work with hotkeys, but hotkeys and overall interaction design is one of the things the Custodian team will work on, so some improvements can be expected. These will however most likely be in the form of improving the hotkeys we already have to make them more useful. Improving them on a technical level or adding something like rebindable keys is unfortunately for the most part outside the scope of Stellaris.

    Question by Froozigiusz!
    Will we see in the future a community made content pack dlc like in the "City: Skylines"?
    Answer
    There are no current plans for sold UGC (user-generated content), mostly due to the fact that our games tend to change quite a lot compared to games like Cities: Skylines. Selling community-content through some sort of partnership program is a good business idea, but there are too many unknowns with possible negative implications to make this a priority for Stellaris. If a piece of UGC stopped working, who would be responsible for fixing it if the creater stopped being active with Stellaris?

    For RP purposes I sometimes start a game with 0 AI empires, and with either 0 primitives, or with considerable number of primitives. Will there any special events for such games, where you, the player, get such big of headstart? It'll be great for RP'ing.

    Question by Xander!
    Do you have any plans to add new Operations or otherwise adjust espionage? Right now, the active part of the system seems extremely underwhelming and not really worth the brain cycles to use, while the passive intel gathering is useful. Maybe allowing the user to be more particular in the effects of Operations? Say, like stealing specific techs or spawning pirates on particular systems? This wouldn't be very frustrating for the player to play against, but would be satisfying to do.
    Answer
    Custodians are always looking at previous systems and trying to figure out how to improve them. Personally, I'd love to see more espionage operations and more options for it (and proposing them) as well. The downsides are, as you mentioned, posibility of frustrating the player, bad UI / UX experience (imagine scrolling through all the technologies an empire has!), having the AI use the system properly etc.

    Question by Gorantev!
    *Better AI please? I'd love to have at least half-decent opponents. Same goes for factions, that actually do something outside of just giving influence, actually useful Heirs, more dangerous and less predictable rebellions, more engaging, dynamic and complex internal politics and affairs (especially for late game, especially for huge Empires where regions are getting massive)? And I'd welcome any changes for the better.*
    Answer
    The economic AI has been improved in Lem and and AI performance is something we're well aware of (I'm the QA assigned to keep an eye on the AI). We're currently looking at further improvements to the economic AI and we'll see how these turn out.

    Question by Ketrai, filthy clerk unionist.!
    Any plans to tweak post apocalyptic? The new radiotropic trait seems like a match made in heaven. But there is no way to guarantee more tomb worlds. Maybe a terraforming option? It's dissapointing exterminators with armageddon bombarding and primitives with their own nuke folly are actually able to create more. But an origin built around tomb worlds isn't.
    Answer
    Yes and no. There's a few narrative hurdles to overcome, considering that the post-apocalyptic origin is written to regret the apocalypse. But there are people within the team (cough cough Alfray Stryke (QA) ) who are championing the post-apocalyptic wreckers, who want their worlds to all be radioactive. I'd say there's a reasonable chance for it to be possible in the future, but I can't give an indication on when and in what form.

    Question by Nelosi!
    Was the balance to technocracy accounting for the discount provided by discovery's -20% to researcher upkeep? If so, I see the balance, and calculated (taking CG cost away for given society tech) a culture worker generates 1 unity for .533 CG, an entertainer does so for .5 CG, and with Discovery Technocracy, a researcher generates 1 unity per .8 CG. Was changing the unity alteration to technocracy explored? Or were the developers set on keeping it as similar as possible, while implementing an integer (1, 2 etc) change to keep the descriptions simple?
    Answer
    Yes, it was considered. The point was not to nerf them in relation to culture workers or entertainers but to themselves and yes, keeping them similar in description and effect was very important as well. So, if you take anything from that, its that we are observing technocracy change carefully, but we are comparing it to its past performance more than to other civics combos. We are also open to future changes, if required.

    Any plans about adding religion system and internal policy affairs (for new DLC)? It seems that they can spicy-up depth for both playstyle and long-term gamplay, as well as silly AI behaviors so they can at least try to play as their roles.

    This is a difficult thing to work on as we don't want to force your story to be whatever we set up. Even if we were to create a religion system we could never account for every way you would want to set up your religion in your backstory.

    Question by PAO | CrimsonBlade2!
    Can you make spiritualists more balanced against materialists by at least giving them +1 edict cap per level, so normal ones have +1 and fanatics +2 ?
    Can you fix factions and made it so that at least authoritarians or xenophobes can purge pops with the ethics you suppress, or at least gene-mod them with nervestapling if they are bioascended?
    Since relics are important, if you eliminate an empire by taking it last inhabited planet/habitat/ringworld can you instantly get all its relics so they don't get lost in the ether forever?
    Answer
    The balance between materialists and spiritualists is a commonly reoccurring topic. We've never managed to quite nail what spiritualist gameplay should be, but Unity and maintaining a cohesive civilization are concepts that would make sense for spiritualists.
