    Picked up most of the DLCs in the Christmas sale so it's sparked my love for the game again.

    I also play MP with a good friend of mine who's always bought the DLCs which meant I never needed to. But did mean I was losing out on all that extra stuff during a SP game.

    I believe federations DLC is due to be released soon, so that'll add a whole host of new stuff to the game.

    Tried 5 months ago. Slightly better but late game is still broke af.

    I did another game a few weeks ago with all the DLC. Again, performance is better but I'm not convinced it can handle late game.

    FYI, there is a performance mod that from what I've read does actually have a positive impact.

    I have been wondering whether to get this game for a while. Would you recommend it or is there something better?

    ty. started playing again and I do enjoy this game, but i wish the devs would slow down on the dlc's and fix things, but I suppose their greed is more important.

    Are there any must have DLCs for this game, I'm about to start for the very first time so wondered if I need to buy anything before I get stuck in?

    I think it might be best to play a few small games without the dlc's until you feel comfortable playing; imo the game is so much easier to understand without all the dlc's when first starting out.

    It doesn't have some mechanics changing DLCs, like CK2 and EU4 have.
    Not saying that they aren't interesting, storylines, races etc are pretty cool :D

    Anyone wants to organize a multiplayer Stellaris game? Do you want to discuss and find common days and schedule most people want to participate?

    I picked up utopia for less than a fiver from instant-gaming a few days ago. First time I've used them but transaction was fine.

    Yeah, at that price I'd go cdkeys as well as I've used them loads and therefore trust, but when I bought, cdkeys had nothing and instantgaming had pretty much all the dlcs. Thought it was worth a punt and I had no problems.

    the actual game is much cheaper at CDkeys than at steam at the moment (like £5 vs £30)

    It was 34.99 on steam.

    Anything on this yet?

    I have yet to play any mp games, so what's the ideal number of players?
