Why do I never see Startopia on /v/?

Is it because it's a good game?

I wish the combat aspect weren't so lame. That's what made me quit the campaign. Super fun game otherwise.
>>
>>255479819
I don't play it for the combat anymore. I just boot up sandbox, change it up so I can built my wicked space-station however I want it and just watch all dudes run along and do their jobs.
>>
>>255480270
Yeah I mostly played in sandbox. The point at which I quit the campaign was a particular mission that was focused on combat and I didn't feel like dealing with it. I'm particularly impressed with how much care they put into making landscaping the biosphere floor fun.
>>
>>255479528
I recently beat the second stage I think.

The one where I run a medical space station.

So far I found it okay but not amazing. Should I keep going?

I dislike the lack of vegetation.

>>255481396
Also how do I clean the second floor? I am not sure I understand yet how to run a perfectly balanced startopia.

I don't even know how to use certain boxes. They don't appear to let me "install" them anywhere on the map.


Do I unlock farms later on? That's quite the motivation to keep playing, thanksbor.

>I don't even know how to use certain boxes. They don't appear to let me "install" them anywhere on the map.

Some of them are props than need to be placed in certain rooms, like medical equipment in sick bay.

Hire some of the purple hippie guys and they plant stuff on the biodeck.

The third floor is the biodeck. It's got terraforming and farming and it's a lot of fun.
>>
>>255479528
Ha, just played that game over the weekend for the first time. Quite fun.

Anyone tried Maia, should I get hyped for it?
>>
>>255484806
I think Maia still need some time and work to turn it into a proper game rather than a simulation tech demo.
>>
>>255484806
>Anyone tried Maia, should I get hyped for it?
It's not coming along very quickly.
>>
>>255485205
Oh, I'm not picking it up till it's finished, just wondering if it's looking good so far or not.
>>
Great game.
comfy/10

I should play this shit again.
>>
>>255484806
Still looks really unfinished and we all know how much faith we should put in early access.

Shame, I was looking for a Evil-genius type base building game, but there don't seem to be any at the moment.
>>
>2 people in the same thread tried Startopia the past few days
How is this possible? The game isn't even well known.
>>
>>255486614
I personally just bought it. downloading now.
>>
Are there any mods?

>>255486614
This can only be a good thing. I think we often underestimate the amount of people who find good games rather than bad ones.

I found the widescreen fix.

but it doesn't some with a readme, so I'm going in blind.

Wait isn't this that Terraforming game?

I remember playing this

Loved the biodeck aspects and the fact that all the aliens have their of own personalized background.

Still my favorite of these types of games ( management?) and one of my favorite games overall is Black & White. Just all the tiny mechanics from all the variables that go into your creatures A.I. to the simplest mechanic of trees seeding the ground you plant them and their growth.

Would have loved B&W2 quite a bit more if I wasn't locked into playing the Romans the whole game...
>>
>>255488531
I only played B&W2, is the first one better? I didn't even finish the second one.

The last stage was bullshit.
>>
>>255489505
B&W2 is shit.

It's completely different apart from the fact that you move around and interact with the world with your hand.

There are no armies or weapons for that matter since you live in eden with relatively peaceful tribes.

Your creature isn't just a super unit that you upgrade with "Tribute" and send to kill your enemy, its ridiculously complex A.I., closest I've ever seen to emulate a human child psychology. You have to nurture and teach it how you want it to behave and care for it long enough for it to learn how to care for itself. Or you could baby him his whole life and he'll die without your help.

It's just a really really neat game, very flawed, some find the Creature A.I. infuriating but thats basically what bringing kids up is.

Oh my fucking this is awesome.

BW2 was always about rushing armies and stuff.

From what I understand is a comfy game then, right? Gonna give it a go.

Its my childhood comfy game I always re-instal every once in a while. Just building your village and teaching your creature not to use the fireball spell on it.

Good times always.

Does it actually look this good? Isn't it an early 2000s game?

I would pay so much money for an HD remake of Black and White, complete with mod support.

So much fucking money.

Arona here, how's it going now? I've got some stuff i just know you'll fall in love it. And at these prices, i'm cutting both my throats.

Way ahead of its time. With the layered decks, the biodeck having dynamic'ish water, terraforming and all that.

So many years later and From Dust only managed to recreate 10% of this game. Fuck this industry.

Supervisor, why nto help your Scuzzer droids by beaming up rubbish and sending it to the recycler? Or are you reading this in my voice?

Unfortunately games like startopia aren't economically viable anymore since the budgets shot straight up and anybody who makes games like this, do shallow imitations. Yep, the industry sucks ass

Shit was so awesome when they gathered enough of those penant guys and they'd all ascend.

>>255479528
I keep getting dunked on in fights when I open the other segments.

What do?

How do I git gud?
>>
>>255479528

I had forgotten what the name of this game was.

Thanks guy.
>>
>>255496994
Go back to CoD, mister plebeian.

Not every game needs war to be fun.
>>
>>255497671
you either close the segment and stop dealing with them assholes, or you steal their segment by sending a HEAVILY DEFENDED security robot to their bulkhead and steal the whole place for yourself.
>>
>>255497517
Haha fuck you.
>>
>>255497810
Oh.

So basically I just do what I've been trying to do already with a much bigger zerg.
>>
>>255497928
Hell yeah zergs
>>
>>255497928
Yeah. To ensure combat you must have several dozen scores of soldiers. Although The groulien, greys, targ and Gor are all fighters, you want to have more Kasvagorians than anything else.
Also protect your own Bulkheads with turrets

I love Startopia, the ONLY downside I had with it, is there just wasn't enough things to keep me busy building. Once I got pretty much everything it just kinda got boring. I wish they added more buildings and units to it, or would of been nice if some modders did.
>>
This game was the first and only thing I ever bought off of ebay. Got a obviously copied cd with no box and photocopied instructions.

Needless to say I played the shit out of it.

fuck me in the dick

>>255496990
It does as far as I know.

This is Lionheads best game next to Fable 1
