Are you super sure? Because I'm fairly sure the mechanical robot portraits are just there, you can pick the LOOK for anything....?

I could definitely be crazy but I swear I checked on the new update and I certainly don't have any mods.
I just tested it. If you pick a robot portrait you must take the gestalt robot authority

You can't actually remove the civic after the start of the game, but if it becomes invalid (via ethic switching) then it stops doing anything. So you could do that (as long as you don't mind being down a civic slot) as fanatic purifiers, but not as devouring swarm or determined exterminators.

And then it flip back on after everybody still hates you for purging.
I remember when my friends were still stellaris newbs. I ethics shifted out to disable fanatical purifier to be able to conduct diplomacy with them, until such time as I felt it was appropriate to reawaken the Pure Dungroller Colony

Sigh, had a good run. Gaia World Fanatic Xenophobe Spiritualist Ork Boyz. Enslaved my neighbours and imported them, figured out how the hell you work the new systems, how Habitats work now, got Psychic Powers, terraformed surrounding planets into Gaia Worlds, got a full Thrall World, Penal Colony and Resort World, even got a Dyson Sphere going and a Matter Decompressor started.

Then the Scourge dropped. On top of my homeworld. And my total fleet power is 100k. And I`m on 1.5x Crisis power.

Fuuuuuu....

I'm terrified of what's going to happen when I get to the crisis, since I cranked the crisis difficulty all the way up to 2.5x on my first game in 2.2.  So far my fleet power is like 20K at 2350 and I'm probably going to get stomped.  Kind of hoping for the Prethoryn scourge, since I've never seen it, but at least if it's the Contingency I'll know how to counter it and maximize my fleet's effectiveness.  Only ever seen the Unbidden once, which I did defeat, but I'm less sure about it.

I'm glad the Khan didn't trigger in this game and that nobody opened the L-gate.  A midgame crisis would have steamrolled the galaxy.

Also, I'm not in love with habitats right now.  I can see how they might have niche applications, but I think I may actually skip the Voidborne ascension perk next time for the first time since I got Utopia.  They cost a ton of alloys and don't have a big enough population to really support enough buildings to make it feel worth using them, even with Master Builders.

What happens if you terraform a ecumenopolis?

The Worm destroys Ecumenopolis, turning it into an ordinary planet, so I assume the terraforming equipment will do the same. Next patch will stop such events triggering on special planets.

I am extremely excited for Ecumenopolisis. Ecumenopoli. Ecumenapottamus.

City planets.

Ecumenopoli, I think. Though that's more a Latin form of conjugation and polis is a Greek word....ah well whatever.

Alternatively, we can mix universes and call them Hobbitses Ecumenopolises.

Merriam-Webster agrees with the latter, actually, or rarely ecumenopoleis.

That was the proper Greek plural! Couldn't recall it when I typed up the post. Poleis.

Is it me or are Mineral-rich planets really rare? I find plenty of Energy-rich and Food-rich worlds, but not Mineral-rich ones. Usually even ones that have a good 3 rows of Minerals have a good 3-and-a-bit of another one.

That's been my experience too, and I've been feeling a mineral squeeze midgame.  I think it's roughly based on planet type, with arid worlds having the most energy and wet worlds having the most food.  I'm actually not sure if any planet type gets a bonus to mineral districts.

That's kind of exacerbated by the fact that you can put down hydroponic farms if necessary for food, or trade complexes for energy, but there's no equivalent for minerals.  Which does make sense, although having some equivalent of the old matter replicator would be nice.

So I just found a 9 mining district Tomb World with barely anything else not longer after posting. So I know it is possible to find highish mineral worlds.

I've definitely found mineral-rich worlds before as well.

Has anyone done extensive terraforming? I'm turning my inhabited planets into Gaias, and it looks like they're losing resource districts in the process (i.e. relevant planetary features are disappearing). I'm sure I've lost a lot of mining districts (like, from 8 to 0 in one case), and at least some generators. I'm pretty certain I haven't seen any new features appear in place of the lost ones, so it's not a feature re-roll.

Is this a feature, or a bug? And does it happen with terraforming to other types?
