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
@ me your mastodon ethics dichotomy ideas
Your Instance has  Ethic Points remaining.
god this is so fucking cursed I love it
thinking about replacing AI personality voice lines with famous mastodon posts
Boost and (or reply to this post with a suggestion) and I'll add your username or display name of your choice to the Systems list! If you have multiple suggestions that's ok too!
ah shit that typo there is gonna haunt me. too late now.
Now accepting loading screen images! The images must be exactly 1920x1080 and fediverse themed. There are 15 images available for replacement, and it's first come first serve.
These images will be displayed while the game loads in. They can be memes, selfies, banners, so long as its mastodon themed and fits in those dimensions, fire away!
threads that have been compressed down to those dimensions are also acceptable
@starwall can fridge chips be a science advancement
@bees I've added it to my notes
@starwall hell yeah
@starwall egalitarian: "hell no i aint registered to vote"
@starwall philosopher: sans undertale 1/27
@starwall zorotl pls
@starwall HANDS OCTOPUS
@starwall Lily Vers seems appropriate~
@starwall Mungus 2 through 5

@starwall Maddie Voss of the Fennecs
@starwall carcinopithecus already sounds like a constellation, fwiw
@starwall idk what that means but yes. triz please
@starwall Can you do nebulae? Jort cloud nebula
@jordyd I can do that too yes
@starwall how do you feel about this
@Morgan excellent. it's going in
@starwall im not at my computer rn but i could paste a bunch of burger barts in a 1080 image
@FirstProgenitor all of these are golden and they're going in
@starwall i have more if oyu dont have enough submissions
@starwall Here's a couple for ya. The 2nd one is mostly to piss off the "free speech" side of the Fediverse, and one or both may need to be scaled to fit, but they should be the right ratio.
@starwall please add byttyrs and Mads "Legend" Viande, or even Mads "*" Viande for your choice of wildcard
@Manurweibling I probably can't get the quotes to work since the syntax wouldn't work with it, but I think I can cheat by using double apostrophes
@starwall please please this foxxo needs to be in space tbh
@starwall vampire twink would be funny
@FirstProgenitor yes. yes it would.
@starwall Princess Grace?
@BestGirlGrace it can be done, probably
@starwall beautiful. nature is amazing.
@starwall too late to get in on this?
@CyclopsCaveman Not at all! ideally I'd like at least 100 submissions before even starting on adding these star system names
@starwall I don’t know what this is. Let me be in it.
@starwall just Blakely please
@starwall also i feel this mod would benefit from the "Milfs in my area" toot
@starwall petition to add the thanos system
@starwall horsefucker nebula
@starwall astral lizard nebula
@starwall can you add Cats Who Code?
@starwall hmmm, either one or all of 'Lucy' 'Lenin Simp' and 'Cornish Republican Army'. if you wanna go REALLY far, Cornish Republic as a primitive civilisation on one of those nuked planets
@starwall more stupid suggestions: poggie woggies, thanos dick, pig poop balls, wound cube, phone weasel, knzk (rip)
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
