If I was REALLY talented, I could make Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit into respective endgame crisis

Show thread

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.

Show thread

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.

Show thread

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.

Show thread

so far is the only fanatical purifier in the galaxy

Show thread

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.

Show thread

what is Stellaris but a series of text documents interwoven by code spaghetti

Show thread

what if I literally replaced all of the AI personalities with various fedifolk tropes, and all of their dialogue with actual assorted mastodon posts

Show thread and have spawned next to each other 3 times in a row. this isn't hardcoded I swear

Show thread

it occurs to me that I really need to add some bitcoin nonsense and tech instances for it to really feel like the fediverse.

Show thread

alright I'm gonna take a small break from adding instances and their associated symbols to begin work on personalities and namelists

Show thread

I'm pleased to announce that all food has been replaced with teeth, effective immediately

Show thread

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

Show thread

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 empire

Show thread

speaking the words out loud: "mastodon-stellaris ethics wheel" feels like casting an eldritch spell, it curls the air in an unholy way

Show thread

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.

Show thread

if I continue down the path of replacing the ethics wheel, only pain will await me in the days to come

Show thread

how in the world will I represent earnestposting vs shitposting

Show thread

Tankie <---> Anarchism (authoritarian/egalitarian)

Horny <---> Chaste (xenophile/xenophobe)

Irony <---> Uwu (militarism/pacifism)

Theory <---> Techy (spiritualist/materialist)

Themed (gestalt consciousness)

maybe I should replace energy credits and minerals with favs and boosts

Show thread

should it be Ironic/Uwu, or Shitposter/Uwu, or Toxic/Uwu? :BoostOK:

Show thread

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]

Show thread

@starseeker @starwall for a brief moment i thought "faves" were a resource in the canon game and the proposal was to replace them with eye contact

@starwall ...what are you going to do with now?

@starwall energy is favs, boosts is minerals. uhhh replies are alloy? 🤔

@starwall i mean this in the absolute most kindest way possible but i think this is proof that games cant be art

@starwall trained workers are Mods and ruler caste is Admins

@starwall @esvrld fediverse drama events where your rulers get cancelled and you can like, do something to fix the damage, kill them or like, ignore it.

@starwall @esvrld precursor / archeological events that are old instances

@goat @esvrld I've already replaced many of the precursor event chain references to many dead instances, but no spoilers though! :blobcatbreadpeek:

@starwall my argument for shitposting.

Uwu can still be very toxic.

And you can uwu ironically.

But uwu posters HATE shitposters.

@magicalmilly @starwall This clears up nothing and now I'm having an existential crisis on whether I'm canceled or not.

@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

@calculsoberic @starwall

I vote shit poster because irony is a sure path to nihilism and toxic is well toxic.

@KinoKlaus @starwall actually wait, I'm a shitposter because I'm on that instance

@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
