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'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.

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

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.

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

witches.live and playvicious.social 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 bofa.lol empire

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)

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!

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.

Show thread

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!

Show thread

threads that have been compressed down to those dimensions are also acceptable

@starwall can i get my tiny little friends instance in there 🥺

@starwall carcinopithecus already sounds like a constellation, fwiw

@starwall idk what that means but yes. triz please

@starwall im not at my computer rn but i could paste a bunch of burger barts in a 1080 image

gun 

@oat @starwall not 1920x1080 but i can make it so if you'd like

@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 @Manurweibling Also you can use single quotes instead 'string with "quotations"' or use [[whatever this quote is called I forget but you can use " in it]]

@CyclopsCaveman Not at all! ideally I'd like at least 100 submissions before even starting on adding these star system names

@starwall also i feel this mod would benefit from the "Milfs in my area" toot

@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)
