Well thanks Bingeling. My thoughts on suggestions where about the same. I just had to get them of my chest.
And alone knowing for a fact that they work on DW2 is very good news indeed.

Also on my chest .. Stellaris really sucks .. Big Time .. its Beautiful and has some good ideas on empire creation .. but the way they portrait the universe .. WTF ?!?

So as final suggestion to the Great and Mighty that brought us Distant Worlds.
Collaborate with Aaron Hall :D

I'm interested too to Stellaris: can you be more precise with your complaints on how they portrait the universe ?

Sure, I hate to miss a chance to complain.



Well.
If I still had it on my machine, I would add some screenshots .. alas I have not here is a longy description.


The systems look like in most 4x games today. Sun in the middle, planets on rings, due to the size of both and a rather small system size it looks stuffed. I am not sure right now but I think you could not even zoom out enough to see the system as a whole.

The part that really disturbs me is how the systems are connected. One pitch of Stellaris was that there are different kinds of FTL-Travel at once. That is easy done in that they are more or less treated the same.
Systems are connected by Distance. So in Sol System there are 5 arrows which point to the nearest Systems ( Alpha Centauri .. etc. )
When you click that button you can view that System. There is a menu which lets you view your colonies in said Systems, but what I have not found is a overview Map for the Galaxy/Universe.
So lets say you have Discovered, Explored 10 to 15 Systems and are now looking for something you have to switch around between those System..
without having an ingame overview.

Which just now remembered me of the "good" old times .. of course you could draw a map yourself :)

Now that I think about it, this may have to do something with the FTL Method I used. I have to commit I did not check them all out ..
but non the less .. I think it's waiting for patch time for me.

And it was really slow and laggy on my machine .. which is about 10 years old .. so no fault for the game ..
But my machine can run Skyrim,Max Payne 3 and Dwarf Fortress without lag .. so maybe its still the game :)
I mean come on, I know Strategy Games do a lot of work under the hood that no one really notices, but still a lagging empire construction screen .. enough said ..

I heard about Distant Worlds shortly after release (it was a few patches). I had to play due to real time and the private sector. Recently I played a lot in Stellaris and I am disappointed, because initially I think that Stellaris will be Distant Worlds on steroids.

In Stellaris you have some nasty things like micromanagement. Why? Because without manually placing buildings on each planet, without manually managing scout and constructor ships, you will be play on max speed, and only grind for minerals and cash. This is dull.

In what place Stellaris is shining? In narrative events with multichoice, in triggered moddifers and mods. But in DW you have also anomalies like space debris and unique modifers on planets.

In some of recent dev diaries is described, they want to add a flavor animations with small ships flying here and there (like trade ships in Rome Total War). In DW this is a rock solid feature for working economy, not only flavor.

And combat in DW is very rapid and dynamic. I love how the ships accelerates in the middle of the system to appear in other part. I'm really liking to manually set up fleets. I have always five frigates or destroyers in the defense fleets, in every colonized system. In Stellaris I always must to collect all ships, from all over the empire to attack. Size matters.

DW is still the king.

This is what is missing in DW:

Thanks, no problem.

Paradox is very good in designing interfaces. And in community management. After many complaints about bugs, balancing, and espesicaly performance (I can play only on galaxy with 150 stars, in DW I always chose 1400 stars), they did this - https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/official-pdx-permission-slips-to-get-out-of-work-school-on-monday.930484/ - and this - https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/stellaris-dev-diary-33-the-maiden-voyage.932668/. In our case we don't know anything about DW2 (no dev diaries)...

I'm a fan of Europa Universalis games, since I read a review of the first game from the series in computer magazine. However, some time ago, I became quite critical - DLC madness (if you think that Matrix Games are expensive, try EUIV with all DLCs). Besides, I always wanted to have pops from VIC2 in the EU. I do not like their fanbase.

You need to know that they sell you a bare version, and only DLCs and mods will make after some time you'll be eager to play. Stellaris will be cool for two years.

New leader portraits. Tons of them. Perhaps also a random portrait folder, mebbe divided by gender. But seriously, having all leaders looks the same is easily the lamest thing in this game. I downloaded the portrait mod for humans, but they all looked, well, bad.

The option to entirely turn off diplomacy/event music and just let the bgm run constantly would be nice.
I've found that more often than not the diplo music interrupting the background music is more annoying than anything else, especially given that other empires (pirates in particular) call you repeatedly and with great frequency for various largely ignorable reasons.

After several years of playing DW, I STILL want to terraform worlds and make them better places for my dudes to live.
That such a thing is not possible is a source of immense frustration.

I would really like to see better migration controls.
One thing above all else I would like is the ability to remove a planet from the migration "destination list" so I can grow a non-native population without it being overrun by the empire race.
Even setting "do not accept" still allows the empire race to migrate there.

Probably the single most important thing I'd like to see in whatever future iteration of DW is the ability to "quarantine" a star system and declare it off limits to any automated ships.
It is both frustrating and tedious to see the AI repeatedly send ships into hostile systems.

[e]

Better controls over your starting location would also be nice.
For instance, if for whatever reason I want to start right against the edge of the map or tucked into a corner I have no way of achieving this without multiple restarts, as the current 'edge' start setting will happily drop you almost in the middle of the map. It covers too wide an area.

I have a wishlist item that's pretty minor:

In screens that display a lot of numbers (like the main empire financial overview), the font is such that columns don't line up well, so it takes extra effort to see the values correctly. Please use a font where the numbers all line up in the columns correctly :)

My wish is: When pressing ESC, close the opened menues one by one.
right now it opens only the optins menu. this could also open, but only when all others have been closed.

i think you get the idea.
in this way it is easier to get back to the main screen, or to get to another screen that is under the topmost.

I would like a way to force civilian ships to upgrade (through gui; ie click on the civilian ship and click an upgrade icon, as you can with state ships).

When a planet has built enough troop facilities you can no longer choose "pirate missions" for that planet (because the place where you clicked has be subsumed by military unit recruitment icons).

The editor... an alternative to the need to double click on something so that you can edit it. Right now, if something is covering what you want to edit, you cannot edit it. Shift and R-click, ctrl and r-click or something?

Well if you prefer playing games that needs at least 2-years more in the making before its even remotely entertaining, sure go ahead.

One thing i really want added is longer ship building times. Building a Capital Ship or a dreadnought should be a huge task taking a lot of time and money. Ships as large as frigates could be built in normal space ports, but larger ships like carriers and capital ships requiring huge shipyards which should be built separately requiring its own research techs and components.

Another thing which could be added are huge Nebula's, gases and similar stuff which has the ability to effect ships, some disabling shields, other frying armor hence requiring shielded ships, others disabling hyper drive or something else. Instead these gases are not added only in the corners of the galaxy were ships rarely venture but this will expand vast areas the of map covering asteroid fields,planets etc.

No clue, found it during a google search

This could be a pretty neat idea for a UI redesign as well.

Imagine clicking on one star system and seeing the miniature version of the solar system on the top right corner with all the location of ships, space stations, and mining bases(just like a minimap).

Just below that would be the list of planets within the star system where you can see all the resources if you just hover ur mouse pointer over the planet.

The empire boundaries and the map can be similarly coloured when you fully zoom out. With major trade routes posted as a line connecting two or several planets and fleets can be marked by the Empire symbol...

How familiar! The map I referred from for the galaxy map scenario for our Star Trek The Picard Era mod!

-A plague slider that controls the frequency and strength of plagues

-Custom biological weapons that isnt Xaraktor (I dont like the idea of just one biological weapon in which once you develop a cure, it becomes irrelevant forever.)

-More diplomatic events that improve/worsen relationships, cause internal strife and civil wars, etc.

-Repeatable tech so that the end of the tech tree isn't actually "the end"

-A reason besides roleplay to make the players want to do anything besides assimilate alien pops. Maybe a organic government ethics system like in Stellaris (An xenophile civilization gradually turning xenophobic over the course of 50 years and now most your population dont want aliens in their empire anymore or vise versa)

All in all Id love if DW2 was a game I could have a campaign last up to 2600 or even the year 3000 and still have the galaxy be interesting, dynamic, and ever changing. Basically like real life
