If I was REALLY talented, I could make Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit into respective endgame crisis
Reddit would be the scourge, for obvious reasons. and Twitter would be the robot uprising, because algorithm. Facebook or Google would be the interdimensional invasion.
it would be too easy to make a jamelist (jorts namelist)
no sleep. only posting.
it's been like 12 hours and I'm still going, but I need MORE. send me your emojis, send me your ideas and your huddled masses.
it may not look like it, but this is 12 hours of labor. phew.
some more eyecandy for y'all
Jlanet (Jort Planet)
alright. It's testing time.
I've got 22 instances represented so far. In total I'd like to have like, at least 50 by the end of this. But, it's time to get some gameplay done, look for some bugs.
so far witches.live is the only fanatical purifier in the galaxy
ah yes, the eternal art art of hours upon hours of bughunting and troubleshooting. This circus is the closest I'll ever get to actual hacking, so I better try to enjoy it.
I think I've found the bug
what is Stellaris but a series of text documents interwoven by code spaghetti
what if I literally replaced all of the AI personalities with various fedifolk tropes, and all of their dialogue with actual assorted mastodon posts
witches.live and playvicious.social have spawned next to each other 3 times in a row. this isn't hardcoded I swear
It breathes! It LIVES!
can we just take a moment to appreciate how epic playvicious's banner is?
it occurs to me that I really need to add some bitcoin nonsense and tech instances for it to really feel like the fediverse.
oh, it is beautiful.
alright I'm gonna take a small break from adding instances and their associated symbols to begin work on personalities and namelists
note to self: rename Influence to Clout
I'm pleased to announce that all food has been replaced with teeth, effective immediately
c l o u t
I'm probably going to make the influence/food conversion into its own mod, and the emblems into its own mod and put them in a fediverse collection. That way people can choose to just play with a specific emblem from the fedi without necessarily also having to eat teeth
It's up!!! (Just the emblems for now, other stuff later) Go download it!
Update!! Version 1.1 of the Fediverse Emblems mod is now. It is updated for use with Stellaris 2.7, and has had several instance emblems added. Additionally, the emblems are now split up into two groups, for ease of selection.
the very INSTANT the necroids pack comes out I am making a resurrected bofa.lol empire
normal bug fixes for a normal mod
speaking the words out loud: "mastodon-stellaris ethics wheel" feels like casting an eldritch spell, it curls the air in an unholy way
should I change the existing ethics or just add new ones
if I add new ones, it would likely compete with less mods, however it will be far more work to figure out and do. If I'm just replacing existing ones, it'll probably be far easier.
oh yes, yes yes, this is cursed.
this mod sucks, so bad
oh, wretched, awful. why am I still doing this.
if I continue down the path of replacing the ethics wheel, only pain will await me in the days to come
see but these symbols were the easy ones
how in the world will I represent earnestposting vs shitposting
Tankie <---> Anarchism (authoritarian/egalitarian)
Horny <---> Chaste (xenophile/xenophobe)
Irony <---> Uwu (militarism/pacifism)
Theory <---> Techy (spiritualist/materialist)
Themed (gestalt consciousness)
currently accepting feedback and ideas
maybe I should replace energy credits and minerals with favs and boosts
but which one would be which...
should it be Ironic/Uwu, or Shitposter/Uwu, or Toxic/Uwu?
wow this poll is close
holy shit I've never even seen this
toxic would be easy to represent, with a biohazard, radioactive, or corrosive hazard symbol.
shitposting would be a poop emoji, naturally.
irony would be represented by one or more stylized iron bars, or perhaps by a periodic table [Fe]
@starwall I hate this but I also hate that it's not wrong
@starwall tag urself im horny/irony
@starwall hoirony, if you will
@starwall faves = ec, boosts = minerals
@starseeker on radtown the colors roughly match as well
@starwall i think favs = energy and boosts = minerals
@esvrld then it is decided
@starwall Influence should be called Clout
@stolas already done :3
@starwall Nevermind then lol
@starwall Horny emblem needs to be 🍆
@stolas this is extremely helpful thank you
@starwall thanks I'm glad I could help
@starwall ...what are you going to do with snouts.online now?
@stolas gave them the Doomsday origin lol
@starwall energy is favs, boosts is minerals. uhhh replies are alloy? 🤔
@garbados Alloys are when you do all three.
@starwall i mean this in the absolute most kindest way possible but i think this is proof that games cant be art
@scarybutch tough pill to swallow, but understandable.
@starwall Citizens are now users.
@starwall trained workers are Mods and ruler caste is Admins
@starwall I mean, you can be an uwu shitposter
@CornishRepublicanArmy it's true, they're not necessarily a dichotomy.
@starwall my argument for shitposting.
Uwu can still be very toxic.
And you can uwu ironically.
But uwu posters HATE shitposters.
@starwall uwu posters tend to be hard on sincerity is the thing, meaning they're really not irony posters right. and there are uwu shitposters, it's hardly an opposing view. the sheer volume of smol uwu bean rcist meltdowns proves the last one is abolutely not a dichotomy
@starwall maybe uwu/edgelord?
@starwall or perhaps the 😏 face?
@starseeker oh god that's good too
@starwall 4chan logo to make it edgy
@CornishRepublicanArmy this is meant to be fedi themed, though. not general internet themed.
@starwall yeah na I get you, I'm just playing on the whole 'shiposting and irony is fascist and from 4chan, actually" thing
@starwall where's the 1 percent...
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
