Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20greetings sir ants rats and welcome forthe very first time to stellaris with meAlaric's and of course welcome to theapocalypse DLC so stellaris is a game Ihave loved for a very long time but notreally had all that much chance to playand finally I've decided why not justWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40make it a series on the channel thereare some games I tend to play just bymyself because I don't really want torecord it I want to just enjoy theexperience but I think this will be afantastic game to show everyone butplease note I am an absolute scrub inthis game so expect a lot of very oddchoices and so we begin a new game now IWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00did run a poll very briefly over onTwitter asking what type of civilizationI should play and as of right now abouttwo hours in we're going to createsomething fairly evil we're going down aslaver route we are going to enslave atthe universe to our perfect will throughWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20our leadership the universe shallprosper and so create new so I have afew ideas and one of them is to go downthe plant route because I like the loreof this idea my fiancee basically toldme this idea and I loved it so that'swhat we're going with the idea is we'reWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40not really evil we're just completelyamoral we have no morals be it bad orgood we don't do anything for a moralpurpose because we are plants we have nosense of pain we have no need toreproduce it just sort of happens innature with the plans we don'tunderstand why these fleshy things orWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00even care about being sliced open or notallowed to have children or enslaved forwork because we do that to our ownpopulation and we don't seem to care sowhy would they we're just aboveunderstanding that type of thing now ofcourse that makes less and less sense aswe communicate with others but I justlike the idea anyway and I want and IWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20also like the idea of a plant being verygreedy for resources so that's sort ofwhat we're going to go with so what ideaI had was how about the cash minercoughing fit then I strike again thecactus because it looks like a cactusand all that and has the spikes and Ilike the idea of that so all aboutWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40resources all about gaining as muchenergy and minerals as possible and wewill do good things in the universe itwill also do absolutely atrocities wejust don't care and don't reallyunderstand why we should care cachecacti kacct oh that's how that wouldwork and then sure cache captain yesWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00sounds up I like it okay ship prefix youknow I'm actually tempted just to stickwith the regular humanoid one justbecause it's so easy the ISS blah blahblah it is a lot easier to keep track Idon't think I'll be naming every singleship but I will be taking suggestionsWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20don't worry that also goes for planetshmm what shall we do just go with thestandard I mean it is a lot easier thisis a really silly one most people don'tlike it but CC cash collector we poppedWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40into my head I like the word cash at themoment okay okay let's just it could beresource click to RC but then all I canthink of is remote control like thelittle cars and stuff yeah okay go tothink of CC for now so obviously we wantto be industrious and we want to beWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00thrifty we are all about energy andmaterials we have learned this membersof this species are known for theirdiligent and hard-working nature alwaysgoing above and beyond especially sincethey don't get tired and they don't feelpain thrifty members of this species areinstinctively economical and are alwayslooking to make a good profit whateverWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20corners need cutting both of these soundperfect if you ask me now slow breedersto me would make sense their plants nowcourse some plants in the world areincredibly fast but also somewhat someare incredibly slow so we could make theargument for that slow learners plantsagain traditional I would like extraWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40unity just for that reason notparticularly for the law I would likestrongbecause it would be extra minerals butthen we would need two negatives tooffset that commune would be nicemaking them more just happy all the timeCara's masculine would be interestingWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00would definitely allow us to be bothgood and badsince we're probably well if we're goingto be slavers then I think we have to atleast be authoritarian which normallyisn't picked up too well and honestlybeing authoritarian xenophobe wouldallow us to slave a lot easier we don'ttrust other species naturally soalthough we don't hate them whichWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20xenophobe would hints we're not trustingthey're not us we're natural to keep abit of a distance but if a charismaticwe can get over that because I don'twant to be just pure aggression thiswhole time so okay so we're industriousthrifty and we're charismatic I mean whoWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40wouldn't choose who and choose whowouldn't yeah who wouldn't choose thatmug for a start but who wouldn't trustit either so we need - threenon-adaptivewe're cacti after all water is bad wellwe can be easily drowned and then maybedecadent no because that would hint aWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00bit more of a conscience but over at thesame time maybe they would get annoyedbecause they couldn't devote their fullattention to whatever else they're doingfor instance getting energy becausethey're not catered to hand and foot Imean that would kind of work I guessdeviants because they would don't careenough to follow our rule that makeWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20senseah but they're plants they don't likemoving around all that much yeah thatwould make a lot more sense so so theyare industrious thrifty and members ofthe species have a special charisma andare generally considered pleasant to bearound they are not adaptive that thisspecies does not adapt well to foreignenvironments and they don't like movingWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40around this species has a set of saidand tarry past there we go words arehard especially for stammer that's oneof the few words which always triggersme I can never say it properly and itsmembers are reluctant to migrate awayfrom where they grew up if you pay closeattention to how I speak and if I'mreading something and thenreplace the same word that word is it aWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00bit of a trigger word for my stammer andthis I will always avoid it at all costsname and class Oh home world um yeahdesert world definitely home world themoney marble question mark I all checkWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20it out a second star name hmm what thestar name B energy we just cats all wecare about with it's just pure energywhy else would we care going to comeback to the star name because right nowI can't think of one where is the PlantCity there's the plant city governmentWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40and ethics okay here it goesso one thing I didn't even think of isI've not really played apocalypse muchmy fiance has on my account I thinkshe's logged like an extra 60 how was itinterstellar is now because she's beenplaying well since the DLC but xenophobeWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00and authoritarian will both give us theability to spread very quickly becausexenophobe means star bikes influencecast is less and and authoritarian meanswe get more influence so how about thatso we are fanatic authoritarian and thenxenophobia I do kind of want to beWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20spiritualist though instead I do lovethe temples and everything else and thepsionic stuff lighter along with mereally wanting to try out the hallowedworlds there's actually a lot of thingsthat are three rather than xenophobe butthe thing is xenophobe can enslavealiens tada so a full slave speciesWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40rather than only putting them in thecaste system but I guess that doesn'tmake as much sense based on the purelyamoral idea because some of them may beincredibly smart why make them slaveswhy don't let them research for us but Istill feel like this fits the theme moreWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00and would let us spread incrediblyquickly okay next I think I don't thinkimperial makes senseI think the dictatorship would make alot more sense though we elect whoeverwe thinkthe time will lead us to the greatestfuture and then we stick with them againnot for any evil power-hungry motivejust that's the way we see things MiningWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20guilds several large mining guilds havereached a dominant position in thissociety the government relies heavily ontheir supportyes slaver guilds much of the truepolitical power in this society restswith a number of powerful and ruthlessslaver guilds they know how to get theWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40most out of a Slifer just you knowI do disagree fully with the morals ofthis particular species well they lackof them Oh syncretic evolution that'sinteresting though we could have asubspecies no because these are alreadyso perfect at mining and such are butWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00these were even better because if we dothis so this is the next species let'sjust pop in weather there then for asecond so they are already servile plustemp set minerals plus temps and foodthen if we make them industrious andthen make them where are you very strongWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20oh we can't do that so we need two minustwo is and I don't think there are twominus twos are there no I don't thinkthere is there's none adaptive whichI'll give them anyway something the sameas us ain't quarrelsome because I reallycare about them making you it's a yearok just regular stronger suppose thisWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40would mean we're getting plus 15 plus 5plus 10 that would be a ridiculous wayto get a lot of minerals and thisspecies would distrust the cactus thecactus are emotionally not there but atthe same time they seem to be heading inWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00the right direction then fleecingbecause they're never going to beleaders and wasteful because they'realways going to be slaves they're gonnabe remarkably cheap but then if we havethese we don't need to be particularlyWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20industrious ourselves that's what ourlittle friends here are forand they could be fully slaved I believeyeah that makes a lot more senseactually then what we can do is make usinstead of being industrious we can beWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40intelligent we don't have time foremotion but we have time for researchyeah actually I really I really likethis idea but it does mean that we'regoing to lose out on slaver guilds whichis really really powerful plus 10%minerals so you kinda get that baked inWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00to the other one but yeah I think thisis worth it I think this is worth it ifthey're going to breed long side us andbe with us the whole time that sounds soweird so what should these be there Iwonder cabbages no I wonder which looksstrong what looks strong is the questionWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20oh I know the Beatles and they're quiteswarm like you can imagine them having aminor hive mind to follow us you're okaynamed hmm mineral Harvester Beatleswatch they call you then we're the cashcacti you are the harvester beetles I'mWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40kind of tempted just to call themharvester beetles because I couldimagine the cacti calling them thatthat's the thing mavey Oh choices arehard I just did the randomize name andthus crack I like that it sounds soWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00brutish and could have got low-endscratch it also sounds like I'm swearinga little bit so I like that yeah okayscratch it is the scratchy sorry thescratchy okay I'm okay with thatokay thus correct are going to be ourroom servants then apparently yep ourthird pub that's fine okay traits we'veWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20just done so they are industrious andstrong making them great for the army aswell that's the thing they are howeverfleeting and wasteful they don'tunderstand how to you know recyclebecause they're not all that smart butthey're not going to be unhappy they arejust naturally subservient again I don'twant to be crude I don't want to be evilit sounds everywe're doing seems evil but the wholeidea is we are amoral it's veryWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40different because we have no sense ofevil though say now suppose evil iscompletely subjective anyway so doesn'tmatter too much the flag I kind of likethat because we are two species I'd likethat a of a split flag and actually IWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00may put that with the Empire name likethe twin Legion or something like thatbecause we are two and we again thatlooks so nice but I don't want a reallyevil looking one at the same time Idon't want a particularly fluffy nicelooking what I want something neutralnot the paradox symbol kind of like thatWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20whole like unity thing going on the sametime a bit more basic as well so I seehis thing okay we are completely amoralhow much does that affect our characterthough how much desire do we have forWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40things our ability to converseapparently we are charismatic so we'renot exactly Unversed in these things Iguess it's just the primary focus issurvival and resource acquisition thatgoes above all else the cycle of lifeWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00it's a Pac Man we are devouring thatthing oh there we go the energy symbolis that simple I don't care if it is orisn't I like it anyway all that worksthat in the center of everything yeahWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20that's how we had to do that how ourgreen because we are after all a cactusthat may simply tends to me okay theEmpire then home system name is requiredfor the randomization option okay I dowant the randomization option but firstof all starting ruler ruler title hmm Ialready called the ruler title grandWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40trade Prince I don't really know ofcourse because we're plants we don'thave the gender options so we don't havethe male and female options there sowhat are we going to have for the nameof our ruler I'm thinking the grand saidI want grand to be in there the grandWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00collector grand collector thorn ice likethis down the green honestly okay whichone of these looks the most well after apious looking one isn't it which onelooks the most money oh well I saw noWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19other plants growing off in thebackground I can imagine that there ishey just this is a lump of gold we likegold so we've put it on a plaque thereare way more rooms than I expectedthat's really bicycle parts and stuff ofstuff money above all else but I wouldWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40like a bit of decoration I think I'mgoing to walk back a little bit with howmuch I have tried to push the fact welike resources yeah I like that oneI really like that one it's a bit lavishyou know we like the lavish stuff we gotsome money there just on a plaque grandcollector thorne you know cuz it's acactus I couldn't help it I had in myhead and there just happened okay soWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00finally what are we going to call theSun what is our Sun cold sunny Sun SunIt's Always Sunny in cactus field no umI think I don't know I want thawed cashin there again the great cash star thegreat profit maker the bringer of profitWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20the bringer of profit is our Sun nothat's too you see I just want one wordI'm tempted to just to call it Sun justto call it the basic okay a bit of anidea here the sterling star now sterlinghas a lot of meanings and it is people'sname but sterling also refers to poundWatch at: 17:20 / 17:40sterling which is the currency in the UKI live in the UK whenever I hearsterling I think of money and it'salliteration money marble sterling staryou get the idea it's the sterling starso the Empire name great cash cactusCommonwealthWatch at: 17:40 / 18:00straight lights like so I heard youliked C's yes the great cash cactusCommonwealth conglomerate oh I'm gonnakeep on pressing this until I see when Ikind of like and then I might change itthe cash cactus Union I like that asWatch at: 18:00 / 18:20well though it's simple it's nice it'sexactly what it is though I did mentionabout the twin Legion that's what wecould call everything because again wedon't want to be mean to these lovelyinsects they have been with us it's thestart and I'm sure through their hardwork we have prospered the resourceshave been gathered the fields have beentilled and so both of us are ascendingWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40to space it also happens they're notparticularly smart when we are theyoptically strong we're not it's thecircle of life yeah we're not the goodguys here maintaining state cohesion aswe venture into space presents a uniquechallenge we shall face the challengeWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00head-on and we shall be stronger for itokay authoritarian voice you are stayingbecause your voice is awesomeum I kind of want the twin Legion now[Music]the cacti sketch Legion know I thinktwin legions good oops apparentlyWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20already magic lick it and they went backvery very far okay shall we the twinLegion now how is that going to be anadjective that's the thing so whilst Iwas pressing randomize I saw this thecache cactuscombine and it's just too perfect for meWatch at: 19:20 / 19:40that's what they're going to be we arethe cache cactus combine and between usand our lovely friends here our lovelybeetles thus crack we are going to ruleall of the universe and probably in slyof a good chunk of it because at the endof the day we are slavers so let's savethat done and reset to default I sayWatch at: 19:40 / 20:00here's thing I don't like advanced AIstarts I really don't like it thiscontrols how many of the regular AIempires will start with in a with aninitial advantage in resource technologyand population they do not gain anyadditional bonuses besides a strongerWatch at: 20:00 / 20:20starting position this settling does notaffect fallen empires so the settingyeah see I don't like that at all sowe're not going to have that because Idon't personally enjoy it that's theonly reason really I'm going to givetheir Marauder empires that's finefallen empires that's fine primitivesimilar civilizations firing a fine fineWatch at: 20:20 / 20:40fine fine pipeline yeah everything elseis as it is so I guess with that we canstart and that lovely new art ofdestroying a world in the eons since thefirst primitive cache cactus communitiesWatch at: 20:40 / 21:00took shape okay I read that took shapeamid the great June seas of money marvelour civilization has spread andprospered the early chaotic periods ofour history saw many nation-states vyingwith each other for power until we wereWatch at: 21:00 / 21:20at last united under the strongest ofthese only when guided by a singlevision could we reach our full potentialand an era of stability and scientificprogress followed now after thediscovery of the Hyppolite Network thefinest minds of the cache cactus combinehave finished development of the firstWatch at: 21:20 / 21:40hyperdrives the Stars themselves arefinally within our grasp begin so whereare wewe're quite close to the center andthere's the sterling star look it outpretty and shiny it is ok so once againI am not exactly good at this game soWatch at: 21:40 / 22:00please expect a lot of dirtiness so tobegin with just grab both of thosemining stations would you let's set upour research so yep research speedstraight away that'll be lovely ooh Iwould like both of these extra unitythat early would be gorgeous but alsogoing down the route of the bio stuffthat earlier would be helpful as wellWatch at: 22:00 / 22:20though I do also on the edicts we aregoing to get a lot of influence andthat's a good way of spending it so Ithink I will go with that[Music]might be better to go down the route ofcoil guns here's the thing as well I'maware that now you have the auto bestfeature I don't think I'm going to beWatch at: 22:20 / 22:40using that all that much because I wantto name the main classes of ship andhonestly I don't want my hand to be heldthat much I would like to actually beresponsible for creating these thingsalthough I do know how I do now have toget used to the new system so we havethe reactors over here now rather thanWatch at: 22:40 / 23:00in the slots but if we only go Auto bestwe can't react to enemy ships normallyyou can look at the enemy ship and go ohthey're using a load of mass driver soreally we should focus more on armorless on shields oh look the enemy areusing loads of lasers we should focusWatch at: 23:00 / 23:20far more on shields and so on if we onlydo auto best I've also heard thatapparently it favors point defense whytoo much so you end up with your wholefleet just a point about a point defensea spamming or point of events spammingas you do okay can you just go and do abit of surveying as well thank you veryWatch at: 23:20 / 23:40much sorry I had to okay there we gowe're doing a bit of pac-man now overrunmoney marble so let's see you full-onslaves yes you are full of slaves okayso you're not the cast system that'sWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00fine so do I even need to put these inthe cast system is there anything whichwe could give them which is happier ohthey okay so they don't start off inthat oh I did not realize that I haven'tactually used the the trike before toWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20give us two starting species so I didn'tknow how that automatically workedso if I put you on social welfare Idon't think right now that plus temps athappiness would be enough to reallywarrants how much consumer goods we'llend up using so I leave them as they areWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40the way would really like is a monumentas soon as possible to rush out someunity whilst we have almost no systemsand no planets so they have alwayshorrible horrible modifiers so for thisI think I'm just going to go with thisit's not I think that quillgin might beWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00better but until we get some betterenergy I just like the extra wholepoints this is a nice basic upgradeconsidering at Korvettes currently onlyhave 300 giving them a full extra thirdhealth that's gonna be a good thingand so with that everything startshowever I'm afraid I'm going to call ithere because I might even call thisWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20episode zero maybe I will maybe I'llclick episode 1 but this was justgetting used to it all so I want to seehow popular this series is it soundshorrible to say but if I do continuethis series it's going to be very timeconsuming so I want to know peopleactually enjoy it before I startdedicating to it either way though ifyou have enjoyed then of course likesWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40favourite shares comments all that goodstuff helps out me helps out the channeland most importantly shows thatstellaris is a series you wish to seecontinued in the future also of notebefore we go is that you can no longeruse your military to go into sectorsthat your science ships haven't exploredWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00and you can just make them explorerather than survive that only to fullysurvey an area but for now we'll leaveit at that maybe we'll grab anotherscience vessel soon I don't know eitherway thank you for watching I really dohope you've enjoyed and goodbyeWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20[Music]you

  1. Right now consider this a bit of a tester video! No promises for the continuation of this series, but really really want to see some feedback if you all would like to see more! 🙂 Enjoy!! Also yeah, I realise I spelled the Plural name wrong – Whoops!

  2. I absolutely love this game but im absolutely terrible at it. Wonderful at the whole democratic part but terrible at technological advancement and millitary strength.

  3. I don't know about you but I LOVE to see the battle lasers everywhere hahahahaha

    By the way, awesome gameplay Lathland! You seems to love strategy games too, so… I've heard about a game called Under Domain, on Instagram they say "it's turn-based strategy PC game, where the player plans and executes a large alien invasion to dominate the Earth" and you can get a beta key on the site underdomain dot com. Why don't you try?? If you get it, it would be awesome to watch your gameplay about it!
