Hi just thought I'd post my Let's Play here it's still ongoing, though I'm a decent amount in.  I started it with the release version and updated it with patch/hot fix later on.

 

 

I think it's pretty good hope you do too!  There's no sticky for Lets Plays on the forums (hint Administrators ;) ) So if you enjoy it or think others might please give this thread a bump or better yet leave me a response.

Out of curiosity, do you make a lot of noob mistakes?  I want to find a good LP to watch, but it is hard to watch certain LPs because of the absolute absurd befuddlement some people show (Taking like, 2 videos and 20 turns to figure out how a civil transport works...Not understanding the reason for a planet with 0 production not building stuff...Etc...)

 

I try to give people the benefit of the doubt, but half the LPs I see on YouTube are people who appear to have never played a 4X in their life...

Hi CptSkyHawk, my channel focuses on 4X I've done Let's Plays for MoO CtS previously, Stellaris, Galactic Civilization 3, Civ 5 BNW, Civ BERT, Endless Space and others almost all exclusively the hardest difficulty or one off. I've done some guides for some games as well.

I'm probably as opposite to a noob when it comes to 4X as you can get, certainly for a YouTuber :)

BTW, watching this LP from the start and I noticed you don't double-click to add buildings in your queue.  Is it just a preference?

Maybe it's just my playstyle, but I double-click buildings to the queue and press esc.

Unfortunately Sulla hasn't played in months. OTOH I find Mal doing a nice job also. Extreme multiplayer too.

I'd forgotten/not realized that feature exists early in the LP.  I start using it later on.

Mal doesn't double-click either, I believe he told a viewer that EA was bugged and if you double-clicked too fast it froze up?  I haven't had any issues myself, though.

 

I did enjoy Mal's co-op game, although it is over and they already lost.  Also, I didn't actually learn anything from it, which was a little disappointing.  I would recommend watching his LP for anyone interested though.  I haven't watched any of his other ones, since they were all EA games and I don't want to "learn something" that ended up being changed already.

Well, I will be watching your LP tonight at work, wish me luck!

 

GetDaved is another LP guy I have been watching, but even though he is a veteran of the MOO series he fumbles around with a lot of stuff, plus he is only playing normal I believe.  I still recommend his LPs though, I have watched him for a couple years now.

​You should post this to the steam forum as well.  I think it has a  little more traffic.

I will tell you categorically that Macsen is a very calculating and deep player and I have been impressed with a lot of his breakthroughs in the 4x genre. This play through here is no exception and he plays with a lot of understanding and good detailed explanations of his thought process..highly recommended.
