    Topic name says it all. Anyone here play Stellaris?

    Got any screenshots of an effective government system? Got a favorite setup? Feel free to share.

    I really love the expanded Ethics & Government system. (Through mods)

    Stellaris is one of my favourite games from Paradox besides Crusader Kings II <3

    I love how much the game can be modded. There are so many mods, from fuckin' Star Wars to Halo, to expanded Ethics to new ships.

    I love Stellaris! Me and one of my friends play a lot of it, especially after the Utopia expansion came out.

    Once, he went down the Psionic Ascendancy path and I went down the Robotic Ascendancy path...


    Basically, he didn't realise that the Psychic Avatar was an army, not a ship. It took him about 20 in game years to notice it sitting on his homeworld.

    Currently playing Stellaris with my cousin, and using a couple of mods.

    Mods used:
    New Ship Classes & More v5.0
    25 More Reactors + New Techs
    Enhanced AI
    Ethics&Government Rebuild
    Extended Traits
    Fox Portraits Dimorphism
    Planet Cap Raised
    Plentiful Traditions
    Spaceport Modules Extended
    UI Overhaul 1080p

    I found the Reactor and Ship Classes ones extremely useful. Feels more natural, due to how you gradually develop new and better reactors as you go, same goes for ships.

    I would like to get this game but not sure if I can get into it.

    It's pretty easy to get into, at least compared to Paradox's other grand strategies.

    Oh yeah, definitely.

    Stellaris is a very straight forward 4X RTS.

    When you start out in your first 10-15 years, this should be your primary focus:
    Minerals>Energy Credits>Military Ships>Traditions>Research>Colonization

    Without Minerals you can't do anything. Personally I go for early Tradition, to get that -33% to orbital mining station construction costs. You save a stupid amount of Minerals in the beginning. 30 Minerals less per mining station is probably THE best starting Tradition to adopt, and do whatever else after that.
