Maybe I am getting old, but I always felt it was too hard to actually see the components.

Dyson Sphere program is Factorio on crack (and factorio itself was crack... so dyson sphere would be speed balls?) . Like an expanded 3d version of it requiring planetary involvement as opposed to railways. LOVE the liquid extraction (it puts them in packaged bars in conveyor, back to liquid when it hits a tank) it was a cute way of doing it, hope it isn't replaced by pipes in the future.
Though with a TON of similarities (resources, mining, storage, recipes, terrain manipulation, research, research items [even the colors are the same to start for research items] automation / transport... basically the whole game is a copy of Factorio that's been expanded) it'll be interesting to sere if it spawns any legal issues.
The joke is, if DSP adds more features they will EASILY overtake Factorio in terms of gameplay thanks to the insanely low feature density in Factorio. It's really mind-blowing that a game that was nearly a decade in development has not actually changed much in those years.... even removing gameplay features instead of adding new ones near the end (campaign.. and enemy science drops making enemies completely pointless to ever fight) instead revising visuals.. as if ANYONE played Factorio for the visuals. Could have been pixel art and it'd probably even have ended up a better game.. oh well I got my money out of Factorio and then some.. and same for DSP.. which is criminally underpriced in this Early Access.. way too cheap for what it already does.

New Zealand seems to be the go-to for billionaires looking to leave the sinking ship that is the United States.
You go up to the local government and you say that you’ll give them $1 million a year , you’ll buy a house , you’ll pay property taxes , you’ll pay income taxes , you’ll hire x number of locals for your staff , you’ll donate to local charities and you’ll tip well when you eat out and you won’t be a crazy McAfee person.
Well, true, but which countries would billionaires want to go to? New Zealand is literally the end of the Earth from which you can escape the zombie hoards.

"Just don't really see the need for any of the 30xx cards for most of us. A 3080 is just major overkill for almost any sort of gaming right now"
Words like that are people that still need to understand we are a free people who all think different.
Even if it were that (it isn't), headroom is a thing to and if offered in time devs will eat it up someway, that's what they do.

So I'm trying this free on gamepass.
Really enjoyed the first attempt. HOWEVER it took so long! Is there any way to speed this up? Speed up animations or use keyboard shortcuts or anything?
That's something I love about monster train, can do a run in a reasonable time.

I bet Trump is asking his advisors just how fast he can nominate a supreme court justice.
If that worthless piece of excrement approves a nominee before the election there will be hell to pay.

Enjoying CKIII so far, doing better than I did with CKII, not sure why. I was able to unite Ireland with the tutorial for the first time which gave me some much needed confidence. I also found this YouTube-r helpful for how a person that's good at the game (not me!) plays it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlGqM9HCWJk
Another good CK3 YouTube'r that is helpful (shows how to conquer Ireland): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCc43BtQeYU

Never played this series but heard pretty good things about it. Is it kind of like Civilization?

Into the Breach is worthy of being a repeat given it’s a lock in top 10 game of all time easily that has all but ruined TBS for me outside of boardgames. I bet they wish they had made some DLC for it to flog, though it’s greatest strength is the lack of bloat and tight editing/pacing that makes every second spent with the thing meaningful and interesting.
Well I gotta remember to check Epic's store next thursday. FTL was awesome, though I've heard Into the Breach is not on the same level of greatness its quite good.
Into the Breach is amazing. I constantly got beaten down by it, but I always enjoyed playing it. It’s right up there with FTL in my eyes, but obviously very different.
It's the writing that lets down Into the Breach, it comes across as sterile without personality or humor. I think they were trying to capture Starship Troopers humour, but failed. That said, the gameplay is great!

This needs to exceed Children of the Nile which set the bar for Ancient Egyptian building games. Tried the Builders of Egypt prologue and it felt clunky. Unfortunately, the developer's only two games on Steam have a "mixed" review. Likewise unfortunately, Tilted Mill seems to have quietly cratered in to nonexistence. Shame, really, as they were the reformation of Impressions which created Pharoah, Cleopatra, Caesar and the other classic city building games.
