Rockario: Cant decide whether to crack into Total Warhammer II during the stream tonight, or play more of the updated Stellaris
jamesk902: @Rockario if ti helps, I'm playing Stellaris right now.
Rockario: But does that mean we have Stellaris covered? Or does it mean that we could all be playing the same thing together?

sopranocat: Hey everybody! Looking forward to Cameron stream
GhostOfACoffeeCup: hey hey!
sopranocat: Hopefully he's had enough time to consider whether the LeGuin expansion is worth it or if we should all stay on the previous build
margieargie: Yeah, that's the trick, the new stuff is great and all but it's... a bit of a mess right now.
Rockario: Total War is too loud to really enjoy a stream, so Stellaris it is. Gonna see if I can play Agrarian Snails without building any city districts
TheAinMAP: lrrSIGNAL katesAir lrrSIGNAL

vegetalss4: I personally really like LeGuin after playing with it for a bit, much less mindless-micro but more interesting decisions to make instead.

GhostOfACoffeeCup: basically building stuff that isn't being worked has a much higher penalty because it costs a lot of upkeep and people may abandon jobs to work better jobs and that ends with workers suddenly no longer producing essential materials

Aenir798: if you haven't used it already there is an updated tutorial
margieargie: @sopranocat You'll probably end up moving to this anyway, so may as well learn the system as it is now. Starting with the old system a month before it changed and then switching as soon as I learned it has probably caused a lot of my problems now :p

vegetalss4: @Laserbeaks_Fury the space lanes or "hyper lanes" as they are called in game, is our faster than light method, they determine which stars can travel towards each other.

EscherichiaCole: I could barely play this game before the patch and have not played it since so I am confident in saying Cameron is doing great
MostCallMe__Tim: Oh, this is the megacorp expansion

noSmokeFire: the big problem with pushing buildings too fast is you can end up pulling pops away from the lower-priority jobs that make the resources they need -- e.g. in addition to the mineral cost of whatever they do, you need to factor in the opportunity cost of your miners.
Contiguouskittycat: Are we magnificent psychic humans, spreading our gloriously peaceful ways to the others of the universe?
Serifina: Remember folks, you can offer advice if you like, but let Cam play and let him make his choices.
rendelnep: which works out to be a lot more minerals
Master_Gunner: !badadvice
LRRbot: Get beaten by a mole.
Pax0: Colony ships still cost minerals in an indirect sense, since you turn minerals into CGs and alloys.
noSmokeFire: (not saying that Cam's rushing buildings, to be clear. just in general it's fine not to use every slot)
rarermonsters: Playing optimal choices isn't the "correct" way to play stellaris. Sometimes you just want to see an empire grow organically and see how far it gets
GlennSeto: @loadingreadyrun Cam, I just got Stellaris from a friend and was wondering if you find any of the DLC essential to the experience, rather than just an alternative way to play.

SpoonfullOfSugar: you have a total max district, and that is the only restriction on cities
Key_Ringleader: like if you specialize your planets it'll make say, an agri-world with bonus foods,
Serifina: However, you don't want to do that for your main world.
vegetalss4: Yes, if you focus on one thing you get planetary bonuses, but this only works for non-capital planets.
Pax0: Yes! Non-capital planets get bonuses based on which buildings you have there.
Despoiler98: Cam did you see they rereleased the classic Noise Marine playing the Bolter/Guitar in plastic now?
Key_Ringleader: or a generator world
Rockario: City districts are restrictedd by the "Size" of the planet, the others are limited by planet features
noSmokeFire: You can build as many city districts as you want, up to the planet's size, but each other district type is limited by the planet's features
Serifina: Not at first, at least.
Key_Ringleader: but ye your main world is always a specific type
SpoonfullOfSugar: the other districts are restricted based on the "tiles" of the planet
Pax0: *and districts.
Key_Ringleader: so you don't need to worry about that yet
Izandai: That seems like a good situation.
isiah_jenner: the foundries are key to early expansion now
Key_Ringleader: 'Empire Capital
Despoiler98: Cam did you see they rereleased the classic Noise Marine playing the Bolter/Guitar in plastic now?
DoctorOfBeard: spend all your minerals on hydro
Aenir798: Early on you don't need to worry about specializating planets, just build stuff as you need them
rendelnep: As planets go, Post-Earth is pretty balanced
Saulens181: There's a max districts on entire planet, and max specific type of district. The farming, generator and mining districts have their own limits, the city districts do not.
cuttlebranch: Yeah. Definitely a Chad.
SyrusRayne: "Spend all our minerals on hydro" what are you, the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador?
excalgold: Hail hydra ?
excalgold: oh hydro....
Izandai: katesLol
ArcOfTheConclave: what things does this patch change?
Vyous: "Simple like Magic The Gathering"
o0sk_ren0o: Is that a SimCity reference?
solahwin_tampramain: didnt you play a lot of this though?
Aenir798: @ArcOfTheConclave It completely replaced the entire planetary systems
isiah_jenner: really, with this update they formalized some new resources (alloys, consumer goods) with new, less visible resources, like amenities
Jarcarp: hi what is going on just hopped on
InquisitorGio: I had that same exact thought after the update, so I fired up arena
rendelnep: @solahwin_tampramain but that was last patch amd this isn't even a ball game
DoctorOfBeard: and this is one of the more simple paradox games
Aenir798: @ArcOfTheConclave The entire tile system is gone, planets don't have pop limits anymore
SyrusRayne: Imagine playing hundreds of hours of a game, and every couple months they completely change a system. That's Stellaris.
GingerLivsMatter: What is this game?
isiah_jenner: thats paradox games
Despoiler98: we found the Necrons?
Izandai: benginDab
Dryhad: Cam, are you interested in Imperator: Rome when it comes out?
DoctorOfBeard: spend the next 10 years researching it
skiplives: That's a nice find
Dryhad: It sounds like they're taking lessons from Stellaris
SyrusRayne: That's the Paradox Rome game, right?
Pax0: Yup
Dryhad: That's right
DoctorOfBeard: yep
Dryhad: Coming Soon(tm)
Saulens181: it's in development
SyrusRayne: The problem with Paradox's earthbound titles is that it's hard to play a country that isn't monstrous. Because, y'know, Earth.
Izandai: I mean, it was doing okay until you went and stuck your hands in it.
Phailhammer: Yes, and they've never made a Rome game before. *kicks EU:Rome under the table*
Serifina: I thought you were looking a little fluffier than usual, Cam. :D
sopranocat: but it's so wavy and floofy!
DoctorOfBeard: Cam hair ASMR there
KeiRaccoon: Puff levels are indee quite high.
Weagle: I know that feel still
isiah_jenner: they tried a roman one with Europa Universalis: Rome it didn't go well
TacitusVigil: Hello Cameron, hello all. Happy new year.
Jarcarp: what is cam playing government wise
Keab42: Bernard's Star think they're so fancy with their brand new bypass.
Rockario: Same grad class?
Dryhad: @isiah_jenner Imperator is in some ways supposed to be EU: Rome done right
rarermonsters: ASMR: Cam plays Stellaris and is confused by the City UI For 4 Hours [You have the plague]
Serifina: @TacitusVigil Hey, welcome. Happy new year
Serifina: I am enjoying this patch immensely. :D
aedriel91: Cam your hair wants you to play MTG instead
Weagle: Sounds about right
Weagle: For whenever you pick up a strategy game again after ages
rarermonsters: Hey intensely evil looking ship, hope you're not intensely evil
Godofmuffins: Its some new fascinating alien, blow it out of the sky.
ZealousCrow: That's gravity's rainbow for me.
SyrusRayne: Ah, that means another empire pretty close to you.
jeff_sg: Howdy folks
SyrusRayne: Could be friends?
margieargie: I like what they're doing it... just needs to be tweaked quite a bit so it lives up to its potential. So, basically, a Paradox game just after a major gameplay overhaul.
ZealousCrow: I've tried to finish Gravity's Rainbow so many times, but I just cannot follow it.
rendelnep: by their shup I suspect they are squidies
ChaosPainter: we need more energy
Saulens181: aaah, a Tomb World, just like home!
notBrunoAgain: Hey Cam
Pax0: Wait was that a gateway or an l-gate?
aerohydra: hey cam, loved you resolution tweet last night, what are you readin atm?
Saulens181: Gateway.
timiam: Stellaris is on sale I think, is it worth picking up without the DLCs?
SenseAmidstMadness: Ahh yes, stellaris
SyrusRayne: God
SyrusRayne: Self-described minions
Serifina: @timiam In my opinion, generally yes. And if you can get some DLC later on, it's worth it.
Aenir798: @timiam None of the DLC is essential, it's good on its own
notBrunoAgain: Let's declare war on them and liberate them!
timiam: Good to know :)
timiam: thanks!
DoctorOfBeard: <message deleted>that's really closse
SenseAmidstMadness: We met a friend. Now let's grab all the system near them so they can't steal any of our systems
SenseAmidstMadness: RIP

Dryhad: A technocratic dictatorship sounds AWFUL
SenseAmidstMadness: This means war I suppose
DoctorOfBeard: <message deleted>click return and it will come back
margieargie: Hopefully they'll claim those two systems eventually and it can come back?
Valdinzar24: ooo stellaris
notBrunoAgain: Anyway the first Pentametron retweet of the year, at least that I saw on my TL, was someone's extremely thirsty RT of a thirst trap
SyrusRayne: Yeah a technocratic dictatorship sounds like the worst parts of Reddit running a country.
notBrunoAgain: So 2019 has been blessed
Pax0: Irassians? sadface.jpeg
skiplives: sounds about right
RealGamerCow: @Dryhad how do you feel about Silicon Valley? Because yeah, that's them
silenceaux: So, hard curve into military capability or
TacitusVigil: That's an...interesting computer voice.
Duwani1: The last game of stellaris I played had a ruined matter decompressor, a broken ring world, and a broken science nexus in a strait line within 3 systems.
Izandai: Oh, I didn't realize how much I missed these streams. This is a nice place. I like it here.
Dryhad: @RealGamerCow Pretty much, but with even more power
rarermonsters: "We're not enslaving you, we're futurists and imposing a gig economy"
ChiefEngineerMichael: @LoadingReadyRun Will we be doing hat collections?
ExhaustedElox: Cam! Glad to see you back at the helm. I haven't gotten to ask since Megacorp came out, but what do you think of the new planetary management?
sopranocat: It'd be great if you could rename the other empires (or nickname them) on the big map.
ArcOfTheConclave: which stars are connected seem rather arbitrary.
Valdinzar24: has cam ever run into the worm in waiting quest line in stellaris
notBrunoAgain: Yeah they really need to fix how starting leaders in democracies just disappear once they get de-elected
Despoiler98: <message deleted>we encountered space Reddit? *smashes the downvote button*

Serifina: @cotillion1850 There is a PPR on the 11th for Ravnica Alliegance. Gavin, MArshal... and others I forget are coming as guests. :)
margieargie: @Mme_NME Now you're making me wish I had some bourbon around...

Serifina: Spoilers start tomorrow morning and go through probably either next Wednesday or next week Friday. Not sure which.
ExhaustedElox: Gah, you too, Margieargie?
Key_Ringleader: I mean you'll get some more empire sprawl but like whatever
Mme_NME: The screen clearly says theyr'e sponsored by Bonus. Er, wait...
Key_Ringleader: empire sprawl is inevitable
sivakrytos: pop growth on your homeworld will slow down
Izandai: What is a tomb world and why is Earth one?
Nigouki: try going left
Mme_NME: I don't know what to do next either. But the answer is probably negative six.
strigonLeader: The new expando makes empire sprawl mandatory unless you want to have 3 planets and build really tall
margieargie: @Izandai Don't worry about it.
Izandai: I'm gonna worry about it.
margieargie: Everything is fine.
Rockario: Tomb world is what happens after total global catastrophe (not sure if nuclear or climate related)
margieargie: Nothing went wrong.
Izandai: oh
Izandai: okay
Nigouki: go left is good advice for any video game
jamesk902: @Izandai It's what happens when you accidentally global thermonuclear war.

margieargie: @Izandai lrrHAM ?
Key_Ringleader: There are technologies
Izandai: Yeah, that's the one.
Rockario: Admin capacity is society research, yeah.
Aenir798: @LoadingReadyRun There are various things that increase it, but it's a softcap, it's safe to go over it by a lot
Key_Ringleader: there's expansion stuff
Serifina: There are some techs, a tradition, and an ascension perk.
EscherichiaCole: Now for a anatomy joke: If you think about it the mouth is just a Ham Foramen
FerociousPeach: society research and some traditions
Key_Ringleader: But also something to keep in mind
Rockario: Basically replaced the previous options for "More core worlds"
strigonLeader: There's a few society techs and also an ascencion perk but that's about it
DorkyVora: lrrAWESOME lrrAWESOME
Key_Ringleader: Getting past your admin capacity is NOT a big deal.
Saulens181: Admin Capacity is more of a softcap anyway
vegetalss4: There's a civic, a rare tech, the expansion tradition tree have a thingy and an ascension perk.
strigonLeader: Increases Tech cost and tradition cost
lifecharacter: People say a lot of things.
notBrunoAgain: There's no benefit to staying far under admin capacity
NathanJay_GA: You may have missed a sub before the 5 gifted ones >.>
FerociousPeach: it increases costs of techs, traditions and leaders
Key_Ringleader: Running it close to teh wire is how tall empires function
jamesk902: But also don't feel like you need to stay below your cap. It jsut makes your tech and unity a little more expensive.
ExhaustedElox: Gotta build something in those Buildings; that will help with unemployment
DoctorOfBeard: that will be very hard
notBrunoAgain: Going over just gives you penalties to research, unity, etc.
margieargie: It's like being a large empire before the patch.
Serifina: Exceeding Admin Cap increases Research and TRadition costs, primarily, as well as leaders.
Aenir798: It's just the replacement for the old tech cost increases based on star systems and pops, it's just you have a buffer now
sivakrytos: if you don't go over it your space will be very small
notBrunoAgain: It's the same thing as the large empire penalties before the patch.
Serifina: It's basically a new version of the old "this is the cost for expanding" from previous patches

Serifina: It's 1% to Traditions/Techs, and 0.1% to Leader costs, I believe
notBrunoAgain: Going over isn't a huge deal because of course more districts = more unity, research, money, etc
Serifina: Per point over cap
Crashzxs: society research, civics, a tradition, and a acention perk

NathanJay_GA: Yeah, it's gone
Key_Ringleader: That's actually how megacorps are built to operate, they have a bonus to administrative capacity and a penalty to expanding over it cause they're built to play close to the wire
notBrunoAgain: Basically the change is that the extra costs due to empire size now only kick in after a certain size
mrMorphius: Oh Serifina, that SergeCraft pack you worked on looks neat. Thanks for making modded MC seem a little less overwhelming. I am thinking of giving it a shot!
margieargie: None of my games under the new system have been able to avoid going over anyway, even with a small empire, so it's probably not worth worrying about?
Serifina: @mrMorphius You're welcome. Let me know how it goes! :)
ChiefEngineerMichael: @LoadingReadyRun So what you're saying is "What if we were Gandhi?"
Aenir798: Your empire will be absolutely puny and inconsequential, because your capital planet can go over it juts by itself.
Crashzxs: going over increases tech cost, tradition cost, campaign cost, leadership cost and upkeep. it hits 150% at about double the cap
DoctorOfBeard: er...
ExhaustedElox: Would this game be better if it were turn-based? Is the real time aspect integral in making it work?
notBrunoAgain: I think I'm going to make a fanatic xenophile megacorp, an entire society dedicated to going out into hte stars and finding new life, new civlization, and making out with it
mrMorphius: @serifina Will do! I'm going to try to conscript a long time modded player to play with me.
Saulens181: The last couple of games I went with Inward Perfection, which ended up being a good choice because I kept being surrounded by fanatic xenophobes and purifiers.
Aenir798: @ExhaustedElox I don't see what being turn-based would add to it?
vegetalss4: I think that is possible, through it's a bit difficult. Seems to be more of a tactic for megacorps, since they get other means of empowering themselves and greater penalties for going over.
Serifina: @mrMorphius Great! Sounds like fun. :D
Serifina: @Saulens181 The game seems to love doing that.
cryptogamby: a nice hot tea and chill times with Cam what a way to start the year
Rockario: I think the real-time aspect is integral. Not enough happens all at once to justify placing an arbitrary turn marker.
Crashzxs: its possible to build your empire tall, but its something you get more value out of if you tech your race to do that from the get-go
ExhaustedElox: With pausing it when you want, doesn't that make it turn-based by proxy, Aenir798? I'm not sure either way; it's something I've thought about when I would play.
Rockario: Real-time-with-pause also gives it that effect of feeling like an idle game

ExhaustedElox: That's sort of what I mean, Rockario; there's a lot of times where I'm jsut waiting on things to finish which is what I do during a turn-based game.
Reecer6: don't most real time strategy games have a pause feature in single-player?
rarermonsters: Oh god which one of those is its mouth
Reecer6: it's just that paradox games have a greater focus on single-player.
notBrunoAgain: I always read the militant isolationists voice as breaking into hacking smoker's cough every other sentence
TacitusVigil: Apologies, I missed the beginning...Earth is a tomb world here?
Rockario: @ExhaustedElox That makes sense, but I associate turn-based games with needing player input and density of decisions every turn. If you're just clicking "Next Turn" I think your game is not working
Saulens181: post-apocalyptic start
TacitusVigil: Ah, we blew ourselves up!
Nigouki: TacitusVigil it's the most positive way to start a new year
Archonic_Energy: you blew it up?!
ExhaustedElox: What about the Popular Vote Party, Cam? :D
Serifina: Post apocalyptic start - what happens when you get too overzealous for new year's fireworks.
Saulens181: "they don't wanna talk to us, it doesnt count"
TacitusVigil: @Archonic_Energy (falls on knees in front of Statue of Liberty)

cryptogamby: his efficiency is over 9000
TacitusVigil: @Archonic_Energy When we actually do it, then it will be "too soon" :P
margieargie: Now I want to play a species in this game that's apes starting on a Tomb World Earth... I don't think there's an ape species option, though.
ExhaustedElox: Waiting for the game to spawn the "They took our jerbs!" party when I develop Robots one of these times.
Izandai: I misread "engineering" as "Bengineering" and had a moment of confusion.
Archonic_Energy: i'm sorry, now i kinda want to take a selfie in front of the wrecked statue...
aesir_blade: Is this the species that the Irascible Lump is from?
Rockario: Good news, you can rename political factions
noSmokeFire: Going over Admin Capacity is fine -- it's the same as <=2.1 where you went over the core systems
vegetalss4: Well if we aren't expanding, maybe we want to use our influence on something else? like Edicts or trying to make friends with our neighbors by guaranteeing them, or something.
surfderf: a wild Cameron!
Serifina: @Loadingreadyrun Just so you know, the easiest way to bump admin cap up is a tradition inside the Expansion tree, and an Ascension Perk (can't be the first one to take)
Key_Ringleader: Its worth a try cam! Keeping the capacity in mind is important to building tall

rarermonsters: Ferret Pumps is my Zootopia fan comic
EscherichiaCole: They have just built a very large ferretday cage
TacitusVigil: @Darth_Wooper ....yes.
Rockario: Tube-animals, naturally attracted to tubes
noSmokeFire: a cross between a rat king and an oroborous, an endless sea of ferrets
silverstar216: Never played this game before, but from a design perspective, the ever-increasing expansion of space would serve as a fairly explainable source of increased difficulty in the game
Darth_Wooper: @TacitusVigil ha! Sweet! :D

margieargie: !birb
LRRbot: Peck your beak!
Serifina: This particular music track makes me think of Mass Effect.
emonotony: rarermonsters This is not actually true, fortunately.
Nigouki: ah, so it was a weasel, not a ferret
Izandai: goddammit cam...
excalgold: i should setup my 360 and play Masseffect again
discodigi786: #look I am just here for interstellar conflict, make with the frickin lasers!
SenseAmidstMadness: Can the LHC accelerate ferrets?
NathanJay_GA: do we have a bubbles this time around?
Dryhad: Cue Snorsh Lady advertising the advances made by the Large Weagle Collider?
emonotony: SenseAmidstMadness To a certain degree, depending on how small you're willing to cut it.
cryptogamby: boo the laws of sound . money
Dryhad: Primary discovery: Colliding large weagles causes them to become angry and attack scientists
excalgold: the weagle collider is just a pair of Catapults that fire weagles at eachother
cryptogamby: you just need a crytocurrency that injects oxtocin straight into your brain
Nigouki: i've seen videos of ferret playing in 4" air hoses, and the LHC works much the same way so should be doable
margieargie: I'm not sure I'd want to meet a Higgs Weagle.
rendelnep: Nor is influence...I mean you should be able to buy influence right?

excalgold: i dont want to meet any kind of Weagle
surfderf: I gotta go to sleep now, but just wanna say thanks far all that y'all do at LRR
Izandai: @excalgold Naw, it's just a couple of homeless people being paid to effectively throw weagles at each other.
emonotony: margieargie Fundamental weagle particles
NoxStryx: wait...we are colliding large weagles and not putting weagles in a large collidor?
noSmokeFire: Hangar bays are important for protecting trade routes, but they aren't otherwise buffed in 2.2's military
emonotony: margieargie Which makes it sound more like a "shark dimension" sort of deal?
Dryhad: Yes, colliding large weagles
Aenir798: any of them are fine
margieargie: @emonotony Isn't that what Snorsh is in the end?
SenseAmidstMadness: Hangar bays are good for protecting trade but garbage for defense
DoctorOfBeard: hanger bays are good for trade stations
Serifina: Hangar Bays protect trade in a longer distance.
Serifina: And do more protection.
NoxStryx: the higgs weagle is the fundemental particle that give all weagles anger
Saulens181: The 3 different ones do the same thing concerning trade, it's just what weapons the base will have
vegetalss4: I don't think they really matters when you aren't expanding, because Hangar Bays protect trade on longer distances, but you don't have long distances.
rendelnep: @NoxStryx that would require spending $50 billion and building the large Weagle collider

noSmokeFire: Oh hai there curators
Archonic_Energy: it's 3am... I couldn't sleep, so I've decided to get up and do something productive.
margieargie: @Serifina Ooooh, okay, I was wondering how to extend trade protection from starbases like that now... I hadn't noticed that yet.
Serifina: @margieargie Yep, get you some hangar bays! A patrolling fleet of corvettes is also good.
emonotony: The cap is high? This ship is going somewhere... bad.
PharaohBender27: For a second there, I thought Cam was actually going "Ahhhh maaan I forgot to thank the sub!" Also, hi chat and happy new year. I lurked for sections of Paul's Obra Dinn stream, but didn't say anything.

noSmokeFire: they need more head for more brains
Aenir798: The "Trade Protection" value is the amount of trade value they protect, each gun/missile/hanger battery extends the range the station protects trade by 1
DoctorOfBeard: that's not a head...
NathanJay_GA: It looks like a tentacled cockroach consumed the head and latched on to the neck
SteelCityExile: Heh, I picked this up during the Steam sale, and I'm trying it for the first time now. <GIF OF THAT SCENE FROM SCANNERS WITH THE EXPLODING HEAD>
silverstar216: Wait, if light is affected by gravity, does that mean that you could have light orbit something?
noSmokeFire: curatorder?
PharaohBender27: Depends - what exactly are they curating?
silenceaux: In the sense that gravity warps space-time, maybe?
Izandai: @silverstar216 Theoretically that happens just outside the event horizon of a black hole.
rarermonsters: I'd need some form of assurance they aren't just Braniac from Superman
Rockario: "Help Cure a Torder today"
excalgold: the Kureig order ?
Izandai: @silverstar216 I would imagine such an "orbit" would be immensely unstable, though.
discodigi786: I would join if they curated fine charcuterie
silverstar216: @Izandai fun! That makes me remarkably happy
Serifina: @SteelCityExile Take things slow. Use the tutorial, it does help. Don't build districts and buildings unless you are out of jobs/housing or are running out of a specific resource.
margieargie: @silverstar216 Around a black hole, kinda, but it's not very stable from what I'm given to understand.
rendelnep: @silverstar216 yeah there's black holes and neutron stars for that. it gets weird
silenceaux: Hey, you're the one who wanted more & faster research
emonotony: Welpo the Finnish Toys-R-Us went bankrupt.
cryptogamby: theoretically but how much light can actually sustain an orbit like that that blows my mind
vegetalss4: While we are paused why not spend some influence for extra research speed since we are capped on it?
Serifina: @SteelCityExile And feel free to come by the #stellaris channel on the Discord, we're friendly and helpful.
noSmokeFire: building any of the resource-generating districts will also make some housing
emonotony: (The Finnish Toys-R-Us is completely separate from the original... but their owner went bankrupt due to, uh, not having a website for christmas?)
ExhaustedElox: How do we go about turning our home planet into a beam cannon to blow up other planets?
rendelnep: also you can never have enough mods
JOZeldenrust: Does a library of Babel (or a museam clausam or similar idea) have a strategic role?
Izandai: @emonotony Whoops.
Archonic_Energy: i have yet to go full Trantor on a planet but i kinda want to.
SAiconjr: did Praxis just fall?
emonotony: Izandai They deployed a new, cheaper? website. It was unable to load the products for the past 3mo.
rendelnep: sell food on a monthly basis then??
vegetalss4: I'd guess we finished a building and the workers promoted themselves and therefore stopped doing their old energy/mineral jobs.
Mapadabe: Check your additional resources?
Saulens181: Did people leave the mines and generators to work in better jobs?
Izandai: @emonotony I reiterate: Whoops.
BlindProphet32: are you over admin cap?
SenseAmidstMadness: Oh yeah, that happens in this build. The AI just says "fuck you" and fucks up all your production
TacitusVigil: Whelp, time to make peace with the Federation I guess.
Crashzxs: I have found that pops like to shift around every once in a while, they like to prioritize amenities over all else
SAiconjr: people must have discovered health care
PharaohBender27: @emonotony . . . Geez.
emonotony: Izandai It worked fine for the first page in each category until it started loading duplicates and also the categorization had manufacturers like "Nintendo", "Pokemon", "3DS", "Super Mario"... with no overlap.
excalgold: do you want federation conspiracies ? because praxis exploding is how you get Federation Conspiracies....and also apprently starfleet Colonels ?
Izandai: @emonotony Yikes.
Antiagone: Frustrating - that describes my experience thus far in Stellaris post patch ;)
e_bloc: yeah you just have to worry about hymns to tourach
margieargie: It's usually not too much to worry about once you have a decent stockpile built up at least, once population builds back up people'll be working in the districts again.
Jarcarp: is cam going to do anything with his influence.
SachielOne: if the fallen empire is the Centauri, it isn't their hands you have to worry about getting on things...
hoktauri: I finally beat an end game crisis, extra-solar aliens landed right on my border and were allergic to titan beams
margieargie: Yes, we need to find out more about Grants!
e_bloc: is it possible that there is just too much to do with this game
noSmokeFire: If you have a surplus of food, there's a Planetary Decision to increase pop growth for 1000 food, and a policy to increase food usage in exchange for happiness and pop growth
Archonic_Energy: @SachielOne so you feel they are cas...ting you in a bad light
TacitusVigil: Is it possible this post-apocalyptic Earth is the same one from Risk Legacy? :P
Key_Ringleader: That's totally fair!!!!
noSmokeFire: Stellaris: a singularity of stimulation
Key_Ringleader: there's a lot to process
silenceaux: Fastest to Faster?
SAiconjr: this looks like this would be the kind of game where you clear out a week of time and lock yourself away from the world to play this
PharaohBender27: @e_bloc Based on what I've been seeing so far in this stream (haven't seen previous episodes), that seems very likely.
Crashzxs: I find the game overwhelming on fastest too, I usually play on normal or fast these days
SFSMaus: It's been known that the Centauri can pick up things like cards and things with other appendages
vegetalss4: That's fair, maybe slowing down a bit would help?
Key_Ringleader: i failed like five playthroughs to get a grasp on it again
TacitusVigil: An automated shipyard? I saw this episode of Enterprise.
hoktauri: do whatever

Hingadora: Crokinole?
Icelight: It's a bonus stream, do whatever you think is fun
Rockario: If you forsee burning out during the stream, changing games is a good idea
rarermonsters: This patch is a hard game to play in public sight unseen
cuttlebranch: Go for it!
Antiagone: No problem! I did the same thing..
vegetalss4: I mean, I'd be disappointed, but I really want you to do things you want to do, and to take care of yourself more.
Hingadora: (Go for it!)
Darth_Wooper: Information overload is only fun sometimes.
Bladinus: np, Cam.

mugulord: jumping in chat to say happy streamers stream better
Mysticman89: 4x games are largely beyond me, Im mostly here for the cam-entary.
Narcogen: Nah man do what you gotta
TacitusVigil: Time for space chores?
ZuNy77: i love the game but ive been the same way since the patch dropped its just all of the relearning everything again
Yusephka: I am here to watch you
solahwin_tampramain: yeah, if you need to, take a break and come back with something else
margieargie: (I probably ought to go to bed at this point anyway, it's 10:30 here...)
noSmokeFire: your space mom is gonna be upset with you
delta__vee: ^
e_bloc: for a second I thought you meant Diablo 2 and I was like well thats an interesting choice
emonotony: More clicking less thinking?
TacitusVigil: Nah, Space Mom is the cool one. Space Dad is the disappointed one.
Serifina: Amusingly, Stellaris is one of my "chill" games.
Despoiler98: Cam have you ever tried Mechwarrior Online? All RockemSockem robits!
Foxmar320: I heard something something Destiny and was summoned
Darth_Wooper: Fewer game-changing decisions to be made. And the decisions bear fruit WAY faster..
noSmokeFire: I like that Destiny lets you do both space chores *and* wizard chores
Despoiler98: ah the summoning call of Foxmar
TacitusVigil: Hey @Foxmar320
Nigouki: chill is good, no need to overdo it on Jan 1st
RockPusher: Space Wizards doing Space Wizard Things foxmarLOVE foxmarLOVE foxmarLOVE

Serifina: @Foxmar320 Hi. Welcome. :D
TacitusVigil: foxmarLOVE
Foxmar320: Ive been here the entire time doing my space chores.
ExhaustedElox: Battletech is out! :D
RealGamerCow: It's the mental equivalent of fast twitch muscles instead of slow twitch muscles
Despoiler98: Not until September
Serifina: @Foxmar320 You monster. :p
hoktauri: One day I'll see the long awaited return to Battletech
ExhaustedElox: You can play that and it's like the tabletop game.
SAiconjr: the one that I've used as my go-to de-stress game is Elite Dangerous
Rockario: All-PPC seems like something I'd do
Rhynerd: Mechwarrior 5 is indeed coming soon.
Foxmar320: Serifina yep
Despoiler98: yeah battletech is sweet too its like Xcom with Battletech
white_wampa: MechWarrior Online makes me sad. Too many microtransactions. Now Mechwarrior Living Legends on the other hand, that's some good shit!
Eklinaar: Mechwarrior Online seemed totally rad to me until I actually played it, and then I lost interest very quickly.
Hingadora: Wait, Mechwarrior 5? o.o
Rhynerd: Or well, soon as in this year probably.

aleixa_p: Hi LRR friends

Wilcroft: Rahool is drunk because he only received bunt cookies for Christmas

noSmokeFire: if he ever raises his left arm he's going to bop himself in the ear with his pauldron
Wilcroft: *burnt
randomino5: or turn around
excalgold: if only i had the skills required to do that!
Rockario: Is he telling you how to store the stuff he gives you? Back-to-front?
notBrunoAgain: There's a whole, like, moving cantilever system in there to keep that pauldron out of the way
TacitusVigil: Cool hair, but how do they put on their helmet? Does their ghost just shave their head each time and rez their hair when they take it off?
Opie74: Mary Poppins?
aleixa_p: (I don't need to explain 'back to the front' right? that was a joke?)
Banrael: The wonderful thing about Tigger?

Lysander_Gustav: Are we talking about ancient weaponry? Nice
Lucifer9783: I think FAL, but i'm a gun nerd so *shrug*
TacitusVigil: @Oatway_ See, France has a bad history with bows. Kappa

randomino5: maybe thousands of years in the future they think of French like we think of Egyptians
r10pez10: you can have my axe
Lysander_Gustav: Hahahahaha

Rhynerd: Is there still a bit of teeth trouble talk going on?
emonotony: hoktauri Teeth bullshit are the worst.
emonotony: Rhynerd We can stop, we've arrived at a "teeth are the worst" bit?
excalgold: 'aww darn it i got a thing from the Gnomish pantheon' when Orc was an option.....
RvLeshrac: hoktauri: Dentures are an *extraordinarily* bad idea the younger you are.
Lysander_Gustav: Is there a black armory bow as well?
Rhynerd: @emonotony actually I figured I could extend it out to jaws and/or lips.
Angnor33: Yes
TacitusVigil: I guess I should try and work on the BA pulse this week then.
thundershot879: @lysander_gustav an exotic one
Lysander_Gustav: Is a "Perfect Draw" some sort of timing thing?
RvLeshrac: hoktauri: The problem with dentures/partials/bridges is that they lead to bone loss, which can destabilise any remaining teeth
Lysander_Gustav: Okay I can sort of see the logic behind that
chadtastic112: I call Perfect Draw "Legolassing"
hoktauri: @RvLeshrac 35, looking at 10k in dental work that needs to be done
Luminaire_p: I got my Monarch on PS4 and I'm so happy with its feel
hoktauri: that I can't afford at all
RvLeshrac: hoktauri: Do it a piece each year.
TacitusVigil: Is Monarch the new PR @Luminaire_p ?
Lysander_Gustav: Legolas-ing is a delightful name for it
Oatway_: wait are skreebs pokemon
Oatway_: do they say skreeb
Lysander_Gustav: :D
Luminaire_p: Le Monarque is the new exotic bow
RvLeshrac: hoktauri: Bone loss can lead to substantially higher costs later, AND QoL issues
TacitusVigil: Ahhh
chadtastic112: @Lysander_Gustav Glad you think so :P
chadtastic112: @Lysander_Gustav Also, there's a character in the book I'm writing named Lysander, so that's fun.
Rhynerd: Please tell Rhynerd about skreeb(s)
Rockario: You politely ask the ghost to leave the room, they repond "But what if you die?"
Alicemouse: You become an exibititionist and learn to love being instantly revived.
Lysander_Gustav: Cool! I hope the writing is going well, Chadtastic112.
blip2004: next week
SachielOne: Do Ghosts have a vibrate setting?
chadtastic112: @Lysander_Gustav Well enough. I'm about 10k words from finishing and sending it off to my editor. Going a bit more slowly than I'd like.
Rhynerd: I can imagine this going two ways:
Rhynerd: 1. You either be direct and/or just start and they get the message that way.
emonotony: The ghosts couldn't care less is also an option.
Lysander_Gustav: What is it like the Deep Stone Crypt?
Doc_Rider: The fact that you are using a bow well in this game...
Lucifer9783: does anyone else find it dificult to hear bruno and foxmar?
Doc_Rider: It surprises me.
excalgold: sustenance cubes
ArcOfTheConclave: feed tubes?
TacitusVigil: Exos don't need to eat, but I think they have the sensation/desire to as one of the mechanisms they built in to keep exos "sane"
o0sk_ren0o: Eats soup with a probiscus
Applesauz: Are sustenance cubes just the radiant seeds?
TacitusVigil: I think?
PharaohBender27: @Lucifer9783 Yeah, they seem quiet to me.
Alicemouse: auxiliary induction port
excalgold: did it suddenly turn into PUBG ?
excalgold: or fortnite with the storm closing in apparently.
Applesauz: It drops from all activities I believe? Just a higher chance from Shattered Throne
Rhynerd: Queen’s coming back?
TacitusVigil: Everything is on fire and she's sitting drinking Awoken coffee.
TacitusVigil: "This is fine"
Applesauz: TacitusVigil, that is an emote in the game, and it's on sale this week
TacitusVigil: @Applesauz It dropped for me a couple weeks ago. It's lovely :D
SachielOne: my bet is on us getting vaporized when the buisiness end of The Almighty pops out of the Oracle Engine.
Lysander_Gustav: I need to finish Warmind and Forsaken so I can do Escalation Protocol and Blind Well
Applesauz: I'm waiting until the end of this week to see if I get it before buying it
TheMoatman: I just had someone cast Vicious Rumors against me... in constructed
Lysander_Gustav: Is the new void warp fun?
1MrGhost: Why would she share her plans with us? Are we not just one out of a million guardians?
Lysander_Gustav: Well, the ghost keeps talking over us
Kaorti: #content
ArcOfTheConclave: you melted him!
silenceaux: Contentment
Applesauz: I keep forgetting Blind Well counts as a public event
TacitusVigil: In my head canon, we, the Hero of the City, are colloquially known as "The idiot that calls their ghost 'Ghost' " Kappa
o0sk_ren0o: When did Ghost lecture the Queen? I thought last Throne visit was the spoiler cutscene
TacitusVigil: Yeah, in terms of [spoiler], does our Guardian know that, or was that just an aside for the player?
blip2004: last week the oracle call was just ghost going "hey, wtf is going on here we could use some answers"
Lysander_Gustav: I got an exotic from a strike, but when I picked it up, it turned out to be a sparrow I already own.
Scrubbodiestobears: hey that strat's a classic!
Rhynerd: The two options of life: work with a cryptic bastard or work with a murder hobo.
TheMoatman: Wow, I think I might lose to *the worst deck* I've ever seen
Carsonogenics_: The awoken queen being cryptic? How out of character rooDerp
TacitusVigil: Is this why the Nine aren't selling us new stuff?
Lysander_Gustav: I miss Eris Morn
TheMoatman: "bit"
Laserbeaks_Fury: Bringe me....the eyes....
Lysander_Gustav: I like the three eyes though.
Carsonogenics_: Would you go so far as to say Toland's mind is shattered?
Applesauz: Toland went the weight reduction route
Kaorti: Toland's warranty has been voided
excalgold: so has Eris' @Kaorti
Rhynerd: Toland needs a new hard drive
TacitusVigil: "Hello I'm Toland, and do you have a moment to hear about the good news of Sword Logic?"
Lysander_Gustav: hahahaha
Lysander_Gustav: Oh god I feel so numb now about toland
Laserbeaks_Fury: Toland believes in his Rapier Wit
evilspoons983: hum, bonus stream surprise vs going to read a book
aesir_blade: Is the murder pyramid scheme the sword logic or a different part of hive philosophy, i forget
excalgold: Read a book and listen to the stream ?
Lysander_Gustav: Yeah
excalgold: Amway with laser guns?
TacitusVigil: Wait, is Toland just a metaphor for Bernie Madoff?
Laserbeaks_Fury: "Imagine crafting a burn so scything you can fashion it into a literal blade..."
excalgold: what did people expect to get when they did business with a guy whose name sounds like MADE OFF
Rhynerd: "Toland if you come back here talking about Sword Logic I'm calling the police."
TacitusVigil: I feel bad for the civilian City police having to deal with Guearians.
TacitusVigil: *Guardians
Carsonogenics_: I think the city police are more just "thank christ we don't have to deal with this ourselves"
evilspoons983: hum, that is a Large Dude
Rhynerd: I imagine that's Vanguard duty to wrangle the Guardians
Toxxick: I see that Bungie took my central complaint of not enough Ogres in Vanilla D2 and ran with it
TacitusVigil: City residents use periscopes to watch Guardians fling themselves off the Tower.
Rhynerd: Unless the city guards double as good babysitters
TacitusVigil: *telescopes
noSmokeFire: remember: a guardian is a serious responsibility. always guardian-proof your tower.
Laserbeaks_Fury: The poor people who used to live next to a perfectly reasonable wall and are now in the splash zone of The Tower
Lysander_Gustav: I hate it when that happens. I'm trying to get better with the energy ball during that Techun strike
Carsonogenics_: I imagine the first thing you get as a city guard isn't a gun. it's a broom, Maybe a tractor to push the guardian bits into a pit
TacitusVigil: Guardian corpse disposal is the #3 business in the Last City!
Scrubbodiestobears: you get those road signs with the "watch for falling mountain goats" only it's a guardian
hoktauri: It's like a Gallager show
Rhynerd: Imagine the real estate issue of being near the splash zone
ArcOfTheConclave: the danger of falling rocks sign.
Lysander_Gustav: more squegies and brooms
Carsonogenics_: I imagine some idiot with the missile codex could probably clear 1k off the tower
I_Am_Clockwork: I have returned with (due to some absentmindedness on my part) two cups of tea
Rhynerd: If you manage to sell somebody a house in the splash zone, there's a problem.
BrindleBoar: shart error: the most feared of all basilisk hacks
white_wampa: Feels like Destiny 1 all over again. monkaS
Lysander_Gustav: Do you think they'll put the Uldren stuff sometime later this year, or in Destiny 3?
PharaohBender27: Did a bunch of chard get smooshed into the game servers?
Olomag: That background looks great.
PharaohBender27: Don't worry, I didn't see
Laserbeaks_Fury: I heard Blizzard is shelving HOTS
Carsonogenics_: The servers charded themselves
LetsConsider: See what?
BrindleBoar: humans confirmed a worst
hoktauri: My cabbages!
blackwlf: Could have been worse. Like. . . Flat Earth newsletters.
evilspoons983: anyone remember Time Cube?
Toxxick: So what youre telling me is Guardians are Frat bros with a righteous cause? Terrifying
Lysander_Gustav: I love this show
Rhynerd: Or some US PAC.
Carsonogenics_: I wonder if it's like the scene from spider-man homecoming but with scrappers gathering exo bits
PharaohBender27: @evilspoons983 Oh man - is that webpage even still up?

Lysander_Gustav: Embracing the void
evilspoons983: @PharaohBender27 I think it's been relegated to the Internet Archive now
Shamthewow: There's probably a "Watch for falling Gaurdians" sign at the base of the tower
Rhynerd: I wonder how many engrams the folks on the bottom of the city have just to get errants guardians back into the tower.
rendelnep: now would be a nice day to suddenly be a reptile...
Lysander_Gustav: Guardians are roombas with guns strapped to them

Laserbeaks_Fury: Wile E Coyote is nailed by a falling ball, pries his accordioned body out from under it, only to be crushed by the Guardian yelling, "I GOT IT!"
evilspoons983: oh wait no there's either a time cube mirror or the guy just lost the domain
frankiepoo23: Just Jund 'em out
Lysander_Gustav: I wish there were more emote buttons
Scrubbodiestobears: wow, ghost
Rhynerd: "welcome to the police, here's your gun, your badge, and a green engram. Don't decrypt it."
PharaohBender27: @evilspoons983 Apparently the guy died, and a mirror site is being maintained
Lysander_Gustav: Ghost is a bit of a bitch
blip2004: quiet petra. she doesn't even like you that much
Hvarn : wait this isn't stellaris
excalgold: 'have some loot !'
Carsonogenics_: I feel that lysander. I have a whole keyboard, let me do all the things
justwhatever_idk: it's enhanced because it comes pre packaged with a grenade
Lysander_Gustav: or even like an emote wheel would be nice
Rhynerd: Thinking about it, if you found a Guardian in your house, how likely would it be than 10 more guardians would just start messing around in your house?
UncannyJimjams: oh lordy, Ghost needs to settle down
blip2004: considering half the time we get somewhere new we start jamming patrol beacons everywhere. pretty good
Lysander_Gustav: I was thinking they're more like silverfish. You see one, but there's probably like ten more in the walls.

Carsonogenics_: I'm just imagining a bunch of striker titans seeing how far they can yeet themselves into the city with the new subclass
Lysander_Gustav: That is a pretty sword
Rhynerd: If there were 10 guardians in my walls I'd probably have to mark the place for demolition.
hoktauri: Cam has studied the blade
blip2004: no need. at least one will rocket themselves
white_wampa: An outsider at the door!
blackwlf: If there were 10 guardians in your walls, you wouldn't need to mark anything. They would take care of the demolition themselves.
Lysander_Gustav: maybe it's because they fiddled with the Prime Engram drop rates?
Carsonogenics_: exotic protection is definitely a fib. I had three trinity ghouls drop in a row last week
MistehMoses: what is cams personal stream?
blackwlf: unarmedoracle
MistehMoses: @blackwlf Thank you!
LordChrusher: cheer100 Happy New Years!
Lysander_Gustav: I have found a Colony, and I'm kind of tickled about the concept of a grenade launcher that fires explosive robots that seek out your enemies.
LordChrusher: Good
LordChrusher: I'm missing the Space Wizzard Chores
Lysander_Gustav: It's like the perfect sci-fi weapon
LordChrusher: (I'm back in Canada for Christmas and my laptop can't run it)
excalgold: Nanomachines son ?
ArkhamArchivist: A weapon to surpass Meta Gear?
LordChrusher: I've not raided in D2 but I would like to
excalgold: that line was as i recall delivered by a dude the looked like Teddy Roosevelt
AzureShok: Its Cam, holding down the Moonbase. Or is it still called a moonbase?
excalgold: walk softly and carry a Nanomachine hive....
Rhynerd: The first.
Rhynerd: had to have been the first.
excalgold: that sounds like the mad scientist in the first
silenceaux: That does sound more like macrotechnology...
cfpreston: that was the bad one
Mysticman89: 4 thousand feet tall and nano sounds consistent.
Rhynerd: the villain was all about nanomachines in the first.
MWGNZ: that sounds like the opposite of 'nano'
Rhynerd: Space Asshole was Red Faction Guerilla
SplittingImage77: Spass-hole
Lysander_Gustav: That was Gurella
excalgold: no Gureilla was an easily killed dude in a tank
Kaorti: Red faction: Geurilla?
randomino5: RFG end boss was just a tank
excalgold: like i killed him before i even realized he was the boss
Rhynerd: Red Faction Armageddon was Space Asshole Jr
cfpreston: they all were fighting space asshole
randomino5: RFG was also space asshole
randomino5: RFG is really the only game that matters
Rhynerd: Red Faction 1 was disgruntled miner
Lysander_Gustav: yay
Rhynerd: Red Faction 2 was a guy calling out his space asshole buddies.
AzureShok: Riker move
Lysander_Gustav: I need to level my warlock
DigitalSeahorse: oh hai, whom else is playing?
Lysander_Gustav: nice!
DigitalSeahorse: yay
Lysander_Gustav: That's a pretty sparrow

LordChrusher: what's the perk on the sparrow?
Alicemouse: 4 months in 2018 is about 19 years
Rhynerd: It starts with a Space Asshole despot and then your buddies become space assholes.
excalgold: RF2 was you as a Nano-machined super soldier....only it was before they could give you super powers so you were just the demolitions guy
Rhynerd: and despots, now that I think of it.
excalgold: RF2 Also had Jason Statham....
Rhynerd: So, I guess Red Faction 2 was killing the Space Asshole Despots.
SketchyDetails: rngesus
white_wampa: RNGesus!
SachielOne: Yup. Time to take True RNG Guy out behind the Farm.
PharaohBender27: @Rhynerd Right, I think I now remember some blond lunk being an ally and then you have to kill him
white_wampa: BlessRNG
evilspoons983: my neighbours had an '88 Tercel hatchback, it was bronze
excalgold: Twitch and Quill were on 'your' side
excalgold: while the rest of the squad turned on you
evilspoons983: eventually they replaced it with a Nissan Maxima
Gekyouryuu: why are we making so many of the same vehicle?
Rhynerd: To get the best vehicle perk while we talk about Red Faction 2
Lysander_Gustav: Why would I want a vehicle that reloads my weapons
white_wampa: I am about to go slep
DigitalSeahorse: who am I hearing?
Kaorti: I'm enjoying tomb kings in total warhammer.
Rhynerd: I forget did we have a comrade or two that weren't part of the squad?
Lysander_Gustav: There's Foxmar and Bruno playing with Cam tonight
Rhynerd: Or was most of Red Faction 2 just a squad fighting itself over control of a planet?
DigitalSeahorse: Lysander_Gustav, thanks :)
excalgold: you had the red faction it self
excalgold: but they were mostly just expendable redshirts
excalgold: Quill was a stealth specialist, Twitch was the driver (voiced by Statham)
Lysander_Gustav: I found a Bronco Sparrow a couple days ago. It's kind of goofy looking
excalgold: Alias (the PC) was the demolitionist
Mcslaughter41: You had already gotten that roll and deleted it lol
PharaohBender27: I keep meaning to watch Adam's stream of RF:G (or at this point, the YouTube thereof)
SplittingImage77: On a random note, I thought pod racing was pretty cool
Mysticman89: I know my quest for rare RNG things usually ends with "nice gopt it. *tucks aaway into collection and never uses again*
Lysander_Gustav: Will they bring back official sparrow racing?
Lysander_Gustav: It's very Rivendell
jmzww: @lysander_gustav Probably not but I hope so
evilspoons983: my dad played Red Faction like crazy but I think he mostly liked blowing holes in buildings
Rhynerd: oh hey, a grenade launcher
excalgold: RF:G was one of my favorite games
Carsonogenics_: worst case scenario cam dies and we laugh
Lysander_Gustav: yay spinny rocks
UncannyJimjams: I think I still need like 1 more egg in this challenge then I'll be done with that
excalgold: mostly because i could ambush EDF patrols and play like a Guerilla - hit and fade
UncannyJimjams: next comes the ahamkara bone hunt
PharaohBender27: @evilspoons983 Yeah, I remember just "tunneling down" using C4 for the hell of it
SachielOne: Chromatic Fire uses them too
Rhynerd: ah, a voidphone.
Aziraphalesshop: He looks like he's finishing a text and telling you to wait

MostCallMe__Tim: ok, after updating my list of dnd character ideas, i now have a character for each 5e class (not all the sub classes of course)....
Lysander_Gustav: We don't have technoviking?
DigitalSeahorse: did Kate just remove all her emotes....dangit probably to un-holidayify them
Carsonogenics_: It's weird going into pvp or gambit with no exotics equipped
amythist: have to wait and see how that Lawsuit over the dances goes for Fortnite,
Thane1607: What stuff are you doing today Cam?
Lysander_Gustav: I would love dressing my exo in iron banner gear and then technoviking dance
SachielOne: itcan run out while inside
jmzww: @carsonogenics_ No queen breaker yet? But I feel you
Lysander_Gustav: Is it just the point and the beverage drink?
Lysander_Gustav: Though the guy that did the original Technoviking dance did do a Cease and Desist for most videos
Lysander_Gustav: So I'm surprised it shows up in Fortnite at all
MWGNZ: i feel like the original people should still make _some_ of the money
Rockario: It's not about who has it, it's about who notices it's being usedd
evilspoons983: it annoys me to no end how they're suing the hell out of fortnite for the floss and the carlton and they're in like 30 other games and they didn't do anything
delta__vee: mood
MWGNZ: as much as i hate the general idea of copyright
DigitalSeahorse: wouldn't that be like you can't copyright a single movement but you can a specific performance ....as with orchestra recordings
LordChrusher: also as they said on chillpoint yesterday it is more clearcut as they are directly selling the dances as microtransactions
jmzww: So for music or sound copyright you need 7 notes in a specific pattern to copyright it
Bobtheninjagoldfish: how doest that work with Silver in Destiny 2?
DigitalSeahorse: hmm
Alicemouse: directly sold?
evilspoons983: they are microtransactions in like, uncharted
Alicemouse: or is it being sold for FunBucks?
Bobtheninjagoldfish: or are those emotes not in silver transactions?
ManaIishi: Silver only gets you lootboxes
ManaIishi: no direct buys
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's hard to say "Offering this dance made you $XXX" if it's tied up in a random loot box system
amythist: well most likely the Floss one will lose it's suit being as the way copyright goes with dance is you can't copyright an individual move, however a full performance as with like the Carlton dance or the Scrubs one have a stronger chance
Alicemouse: FunBucks are a lovely bull loophole.
Xafty: well its been fun, but ima go watch some anime before i head to bed. goodnight Cam/everyone
SachielOne: Wait, what time trial?
DigitalSeahorse: buy FunBucks for real money Kappa
Rockario: Selling animations is a space that will need to be explored (legally, morally, etc.) as digital spaces become more and more ubiquitous. Buying animations for your 3D avatars and all that.
evilspoons983: personally I think the current state of copyright law is trash and stupid, but I would at least like the rightsholders to enforce consistently instead of just suing the biggest fish

DigitalSeahorse: F
Laserbeaks_Fury: Odds are there won't be any penalties as the law hasn't caught up, but you need to files cases to set precedents
Carsonogenics_: is this the gauntlet challenge?
evilspoons983: @Rockario Uncharted 4 isn't exactly "under the radar" though
amythist: I'm betting more likely than not Epic will just try and settle out of court than risk having one of these suits go through and lose
niccus: maybe toland invented flossing
jmzww: Lol
I_Am_Clockwork: Oh hows that thing going where that one npc just became a gaurdian?
I_Am_Clockwork: that was big news a few weeks ago
Rockario: @evilspoons983 I had no idea Uncharted had any sort of animated emotes or dances
Rhynerd: one of the NPCs became a guardian?
Rhynerd: how'd they die?
evilspoons983: @Rockario yeah, there's an entire system in the multiplayer
Laserbeaks_Fury: What bums me out is "Sword Logic" was actually part of a greater philosophy that it felt like they were setting up as the grand fight, but now everything is just degenerating into Sword Logic
Carsonogenics_: @Rhynerd we shot them
jmzww: You can’t get that cutscene anymore, so I don’t think it is spoiling. I appreciate your cautiousness tho
Rhynerd: Man, that's gonna be hard to not bring up...
jmzww: The interesting thing is he might be the next hunter vanguard
Carsonogenics_: Well, by all rights he gets to wear cayde's cloak
jmzww: And I’m not sure how I feel about that
evilspoons983: I can see why you turned off Blink, @LoadingReadyRun

Rockario: But, yeah, everyone wants emotes in their game. Lots of games want to be 3D social spaces. Precedent is how this stuff works going forward.
ManaIishi: "You kill it, you buy it"
max2li: ur garbo
SachielOne: Zavala and Ikora would take turns throwing him off the Tower.
Izandai: Transferrable skills.
Badchop: "How do I know how to do this?"
Laserbeaks_Fury: It will be an interesting story about exactly how much of the original person persists
ArcOfTheConclave: Gardian Uldran?
amythist: not sure he'll be hunter vanguard, unless they change one of the other vanguards as well, since with the lose of Cayde you lose that Human/Awoken/Exo trinity they had
Izandai: Of course he lacks vision. It's real fucking dark in there.
evilspoons983: it would've been a completely safe and reasonable way to move around here
Badchop: How on earth
Badchop: :D
jmzww: If you didn’t see the queens court cutscene from last week, uldren got reezurected by a ghost
Rhynerd: There's also interesting implication about a Guardian that everyone knows the pre-guardian past of.
excalgold: Space magic
Laserbeaks_Fury: Because if Guardian Uldren becomes an paragon of Virtue, what were other Guardians like Zavalla and Ikora in their former life
I_Am_Clockwork: is that a The Rock refference?
jmzww: There are plenty of videos on it
jmzww: It’s not
jmzww: It’s gone because queens court
Rhynerd: I mean, it's easy to ignore the old you if they died some hundreds of years ago, for the most part...
thundershot879: i really hope they go for the redemption arc and not make him an evil guardian
Rockario: Game world changing while I wasn't playing, always feel a little bad
Izandai: Why do the lamps get to ignore gravity?
evilspoons983: @Izandai the same reason the rocks do?
Carsonogenics_: the iron lords or the man with the golden gun
excalgold: is this Babylon 5 now ?
Izandai: Wow, yeah, I totally didn't make note of the rocks ignoring gravity.
excalgold: 'the Shadows' ?
lyov_usa: arm_wanted is streaming lol
Izandai: Oh my god is that a "this is fine" emote? That's amazing.
Riandisa: I love doing the emote combo with my friend. I have the table, he's got a chair, so it looks like we're sitting together
jmzww: A bunch of that lore stuff is super sweet
Cinominn: Ive been out of the loop for lore all i know is uld was a dick
Carsonogenics_: But dredgen was born out of the crucible? That's when he rose to power
excalgold: dark gloomy doom and darkness
ArcOfTheConclave: the Sinister 6?
Carsonogenics_: The warlords were the dark ages, the shadows are much more modern in terms of the lore
Erudite_Cynic: Foxmar is all like, "I should buy a boat"
DigitalSeahorse: doing a dank 420
Kaorti: I think Yor's heel moment was killing a Ghost in the crucible.
Carsonogenics_: ^
jmzww: Shadows of yore are city age I think?
Laserbeaks_Fury: If we don't have rules I can't be disappointed
Bobtheninjagoldfish: all I know is that as a player that is new to Destiny 2.. Cayde was like the only member of the vanguard I cared about on any level.. so I'm kinda disconnected at the moment
Erudite_Cynic: its just not done
Izandai: Sword flying is one of the best glitches in any game ever.
jmzww: Not a glitch
jmzww: Just abusing a mechanic
Izandai: We're talking about Halo 2, right?
Laserbeaks_Fury: That's why I want someday to watch Cameron run all the old Destiny raids, show him how they're supposed to run, and then all the stupid absurd ways we broke them
theunbroken123: Does someone wants a lunas grind? I‘ll do it for like 90dollars

Rockario: I started up Stellaris with the stream, and the Agrarian Merchant Snail Union is doing well. We've made a friend who likes to tell people how to live their lives Democratically. They have guns, but we think they won't point them at us.

LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: LRRMtG on Magic Channel (Broadcast on twitch.tv/magic, join Graham and James for some slightly above average MTG! Game: Magic: The Gathering) at Wed 10:00 AM PST (12:55 from now).
TehAmelie: test their commitment to democracy by finding some great natural resources and see if they suddenly want to "free the lrrEFF out of you"
Rockario: It's very tempting to try and cut them off at this one system, denying them a sector with living metal and TONS of trade value and resources
Rockario: They've got two wormholes, and an entire galactic arm to themselves, I'm sure they won't mind
TehAmelie: living metal is teh shit
TehAmelie: probably worth the risk
Rockario: Oh, I'm sure we'll find more :P
TehAmelie: then you can trade it to them. or just go "neener neener"
Rockario: I feel like I always self-limit my expansion earlier than I should. I'm like, "This cluster looks good. I'll be happy with that," andd then it turns out I have no meighbours and there's a lot of open space.
TehAmelie: i always expand until it gets unfeasible to send a fleet from one end to the other. . .
Rockario: THAT'S when you build another shipyard and just maintain 2 fleets lrrBEEJ
