Stellaris Machine Age Tall Virtual Challenge

Stellaris Machine Age DLC Dynasty

Hello awesome folks! Today a new DLC debuted, the heavily anticipated Machine Age to revolutionize Machine Empires from adding a new crisis to two new species packs (Cybernetic and Synthetic) to three Ascencion options for machine dorks. I have never played as a machine empire (Gestalt Consciousness) or Ascended to Cyborg or machine, I prefer the Spiritualist path of Psychic since they can build Temples early game unity growth, and at times I have done Genetic Ascension as well. Also, Ascension has changed and you choose a Perk and then choose it as a Tradition Tree, and then we have Councils now to hire people.

There are two new megastructures as well. Arc Furnace and Dyson Swarm.

The three new Ascensions for Machines are Modularity, Virtuality and Nanotech to go wide. Cybernetic and Synthetic Ascension have new ways to track them. If we Ascend to those two old things, we’ll unlock new government types. Cybernetic has been earlier but less good, than Synthetic. We have 3 new backgrounds and 6 new Civs.

Let’s try it out and see what I think!

Let’s grab a Cybernetic species. Cybernetic Ships, Continental World,

Star Name - “Rydex”,

Homeworld
- “Rydex Prime”,

random solar system,

ruler title
“Emperor”, name “Mavinda”,

Species name
- “Autarch,”

Traits:

Intelligent
- +10% Research

Docile - -10% Empire Size from pops

Traditional
- +10% Unity

Decadent – -10% Happiness for Slaves and Pops

Slow Breeders
- -10% Pop Growth Speed

Government and Ethics:


Materialist, Xenophile, Pacifist

Civics:

Technocracy
- +1 research option, politicians jobs replaced by Research directors.

Diplomatic Corps - +2 envoys, +15% Weight, +40 trust cap, +75% improve relations

Origin:

Materialist
- +8 robots, trait adaptive frames, homeworld has Robot Assembly Plant, I start with the techs of Powered Exoskeletons and Artificial Workforce, we have guaranteed to grab Machine Template System, Machie Pop Assembly Speed +15%, +1 species pick,

Government Type – Oligarchic

Empire Name – “The Autarchy of Peace”

Ruler Traits:

Mining Rush - +2.5% Mining

Screeny!




You can see all of my decisions there, and my Species choice!

Ready?

Game Selections:

Medium Size, Elliptical shape, 8 AI Empires, 1-2 Fallen Empires, normal everything, 3x FTL Civs, I am forcing the new Crisis called “The Synthetic Queen”, Captain Difficulty, which is a little harder than standard Ensign, Scaling AI Diff is off, so they start hard, Clusters Empire Placement,

Ready?

Here we go!

Here’s my Homeworld, Rydex Prime zoomed in:



I also have my Robot Assembly Plant for free zoomed in so you can see what it looks like.

Rydex Prime – Continental, size 18, has one open spot, Labs, Commericial Zones, Admin Offices and Capital. 3 blockers, you can see the built districts. Population 28, 4 available jobs, I won’t build anything until those are filled.

Jan 1, 2200 -

I order these techs:

Physics – Admin AI - +5% Research for 95 months

Society –
Genome Mapping, +10% pop growth for 81 months

Engineering – Geothermal Fracking - +20% Mining from Miners for 95 months

Council:

Head of Science
– Cogitius – 2 unity upkeep, +2% Research speed

I also have open Minister of State and Defense.

I want to hire a Counciler for State that reduces Colony Ship Cost by 25% but she costs 100 unity and upkeeps it too.

I spend 100 minerals to build a 3 energy mining base in my home system

I send a Science Ship to explore. I order a Science Ship it should be done in two months

Mar 2 - Our new Science ship is built! I don’t have the flu to hire a new Scientist, so I hold off

May 12 – Mining Station built in home system. Next is a 2 Mineral Mining station

Sept 1 – I have 112 unity to hire a Scientist for the ship. I spend 100 to hire, and drop upkeep by 2,and then order it north.

Sept 19 – Mining Station finished, I order this Con Ship to the unclaimed system next door with a Continental World called Howoz

i was hoping to Ascension once, and then again, but it looks like you can only ascend once, not twice, so i am thinking about restarting as a Machine.

Restart as Machine:

Again, I was hoping to ascend into Machine and then again into the three new, but that’s not an option. You can choose a machine now with this DLC to have native stuff individualized and not be forced into the Gestalt civic type and government.

The worst of the three is Nanotech, which definitely likes you going wide, but Modularity even size is like the genesplicing of making the best pops, and Virtuality wants to go tall not wide, and your best stuff makes more stuff the fewer worlds you have, and reduces by 25% each colony you have from 175%. It has the best stats. Do I want to go tall, and not spread everywhere and grab the best one, which is not my usual and try something or do my normal spread and grab the worst Nanotech? Challenge or play into my normal style?

Let’s challenge myself and go for Virtuality where you are uploaded and have Virtual pops. We’ll only have a few planets, the best. I never have done a smaller nation.

In the new DLC, Machines do Age and die, unlike before, but they won’t die randomly anymore to random aging and replacement starting year one.

Here’s my new nation – assume I kept everything the same, save for the changes below:

I like the name of my Empire and Species,

Should I start on an Ocean World and take the Aquatic background? I know the DLC allowed you to take Subterranean and Machine, could I be Aquatic? I move to Ocean World, and it’s called Waterproof.

Trait:

Machine - We start with Machine, 0 points, that prevents us from grabbing four. Leader lifespan +20 years, +100% Machine World, +50% Species Habitability, replaces Food upkeep with Energy

Nannybot - +5% Amenities

Superconductive -
+15% Energy from jobs

Decadent – Same as above

Actually, should I grab Researcher instead? Nope, I need to make Energy for Cit upkeep, and then it’s really needed for Virtual pops. We’ll let’s try Researcher and see what happens (Logic Engines).

Propaganda Machines - +15% Unity, -10% Unity Upkeep for stuff

I could grab Deviants (-15 Governing Ethics) or Repurposed Hardware (-10% Leader Experience gain)

I grab Deviants.

Origin:


I cannot choose Machinist as a Machine Empire, I can grab one of the new ones.

I could take Subaquatic Machines and turn my homeworld into a level 30 planet Ocean World, but other guaranteed worlds are frozen. It would also give it Ocean Paradise and Crystal Reef and

Although if I take Subaquatic Machines I’d probably want to swap Research +10% for Waterproof.

Let’s try it, since I am going tall. I cannot take the one starting with a Machine World since I am not Gestate Consciousness.

Civics, Ethics, Government:


I keep

I swap to Machine Fleet from Cyber.

I cannot take Subaquatic Machines without Waterproof. Here’s what it does: Ocean Habitability +20%, Housing usage - -10%; Food, Energy, Mineral output +10%, Housing Usage on non-wet worlds - +30%, and habitability there too. It’s 2 points. I could swap it for Logic Engines, but it’s not great in non-wet worlds. What to do? I could swap to another Origin, but getting a 30 size one is good when building up not out.

Do I keep it? I could upgrade my two -1s to -2s.

What other -2s could I do? Luxurious -20% upkeep for Roboticists and -10% Empire Size from pops High Bandwidth. Let’s try swapping them in, and trying it out!

Ruler Trait:


Do I keep the small Miner Rush? I could grab Charisma with -7.5% Edict Upkeep and +15 Fund, and then Eye for Talent to give +5% Exp Gain for Leaders. I keep Miner Rush.

Here’s my new stuff:





Ready?

Let’s start!

Here’s my new HW:





I am also zooming on the Machine Assembly Plant.

Size 30, 3 open jobs, has the same buildings as before and then the Assembly Plant this time.

I o
rder researched:

Physics – Admin A
I – 88 months, same as before

Society – Planetary Unification
– Boosted Unity and allows Additional Edicts, 84 months

Engineering – Powered Exoskeletons
– 78 months, +5% Army Damage, Worker Resource Output

I order a new Science Ship and mine to explore up. 58 days it’ll take

I order 3 Mining Station built in my HW.

Council:


Minister of Defense
– Logos, Ship Upkeep, Army and Starbase -2%

Minister of Research
– Multiplex, +2% Research Speed, trait New Worlds - +10% Research for Society from Jobs

May 1 - We find a Precursor Artifact on Manthall CI. We start that quest to find 6

June 13 – An enemy fleet arrives in our homesystem, our Con Ship flees, we get an event for “The Red Prophets” They are radical priests. They have stuck. They have a fleet strength of 183 to our 163, so they are 20 better. They have hijacked a fleet and are us. I could build another Ship or see if they hit my Starbase.

I engage to see what happens.

Nov 13 – We win! We get a special project to Board the Cultist Ship – this needs a Science Ship

Dec 5 – We can pass a new Agenda from my Council. I choose Infinite Opportunities which will last ten years and +4% Happiness. Next will be Evolving Society to improve Unity gain.

Dec 12 – We find a Pre Sapient Species on Pleeturi II.

Jan 16, 2218 – Corvette built, I combine and my navy is at 447. I send it to Klendath

Feb 2 – We discover Toxic Terraforming in Illithium, it’s fully surveyed with Volatile Motes and Dig Site

June 9 – Building finished in Rovannic, I order my Ship to bring in Illithium

July 6 – Next Tradition! I choose the final one in Discovery called “Faith in Science” which gives me -20% Scientist Upkeep. Finishing it gives me +10% Research speed and access to Research Federation Type and +1 Ascension Perks

I can choose my first Ascension:


Here’s what I like

Interstellar Dominion
- -20% Starbase Influence Cost and Claims

Technological Ascendancy - +10% Research, +1 Research Option, +50% chance of rare techs

One Vision
- +10% Unity, -10% Pop Usage of Amenities, +50% Governing Ethics Attraction

I like all three. Getting another +10% Research here plus increased rare tech stuff is great, speeding up Unity usage is great and spreading my System growing is great too. If I were expanding wide, add here Imperial Prerogative for -20% Empire Size from planets and +2 Capacity. All of those are great, but I grab Technical Ascendancy!

Aug 12 – We begin battle in Klendath

Oct 18 – We win! We have a battle debris to investigate here, and I order my fleet back home

Dec 12 – We have 15k Minerals and are maxed, I sell 5k for 2891 Energy, which buys 500 Con Goods for 1451

Dec 28 – We finish building Illithium and have no mines to build, so I head to Dirban next to Larbo next getting surveyed

Apr 25, 2219 – The final system near the BLC is grabbed, so I send my Science Ship to Klendath to research the battle remains

Oct 20 – Survey done in Dirban, which has 2 Energy, 6 Minerals – I don’t have enough flu to bring it in.

Zoomed out:



Here you can see us zoomed out with our current moves, and then the BLC and new stuff are there too.

Now, zoomed in:



As you can see we’ve expanded west to Hantaron and then north to Rint Beekun. You can see my stuff here and there all up and down.

That Web is the Chittering Concordat I just opened up with. That’s another former one of my states. I send them an envoy. I send an offer to establish an embassy
