You might want to take a look at some YouTube vids. MOO games are turn based and Stellaris is RTS. So find out first what you're getting into. If turn based is a requirement for you, there are Endless Space 2 and Master of Orion: Conquer the Stars from 2016.
You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights errant, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it.

 I'm fine with either honestly, been reading up on reviews and for 38$ it looks like a fun way to kill time when my buddy's aren't on to play Apex.
 I'm a console player so my options for these kind of games is sorely limited unfortunately.

I know some here have mentioned sites like GOG for getting ahold of older games.
But has anyone had experience with the site old-games.com?  they seem to have a # of older games for download, similar to how GOG does it (it seems)....

I made a search for the site and got a link to GOG forum. Speculation goes it's pirate site and mods will warn (or ban) you for typing (most of) the address.

Just so y'all know, it doesn't take a link either. Just soliciting pirated stuff will get you into trouble. There's a line and it's roughly at "Hey, can someone find me some Warez?" to borrow a nineties term. Sometimes it's unclear whether someone wants to *buy* the product, but usually that susses out in the followup exchange.

You bought the box set and are ready to expand your bt experience. Now what? | Modern Sourcebook Index | FASA Sourcebook Index | Equipment Reference Cards | DIY Pilot Cards | IWM Model Difficulty Database (WIP) | PaperTech Mech Counters

I'm increasingly out of synch with successive iterations of BattleTech authors, but it doesn't stop me from still being utterly convinced I understand the setting better than they do.

 Did you make a mage only to end up a stealthy archer?

I found an excellent way to grind archery in Skyrim.

Go west of Whitehall until you find a small bridge.  There should be a couple of mammoths that spawn in the region.  If you shoot a mammoth, you can run under the bridge and they can't reach you, allowing you to pepper them with arrows (or spells) until they both die, netting a bunch of skill and some good loot at low level for basically no risk.

Not a video game, but analog RPG, and I don't wanna open a new topic for it. GURPS with setting taking after Skyrim video game. In player adventuring party are a man and a woman, both with following features: handsome/beautiful, sex appeal, and lecherousness. First night, some dice rolls, and at end of it human man got infection from vampire woman. Player characters (all 3 of them, including the vampire) started to look up ingredients for the cure.
Player of 3rd character: We have enough
Me: For how many nights? ;D

Stellaris has been a blast. Im on my third empire as a fanatical spiritualist/pacifist! I've uplifted one primitive species but during the process I lost a scientist,uh oh!? He later turned up having engrained himself into the population with the intent of leading them and revealed himself all, it was me dio!!! Style. After making them my vassal I incorporated them into my empire at the same time he claimed he would lead them to glory, feel bad for his failed plans. I started a war of liberation to try out the war mechanics and had a blast fighting a 2 on 1 war against a couple of guys that lasted about 3 decades with lots of pew pew pews untill I finally won and liberated one of the filthy xenos homeworlds for the kek,this new fledgling empire was then turned vassal by another empire ive had semi decent relationship with. But the orthorri empires in a federation with another guy who i dont get along with and they ended up going to war with me shortly after,my 2 friends were worthless in this fight so after about 40 years of fighting we ceded for peace and basically chunked one of my allies in the concessions. While observing another primitive species I once again lost another scientist and had a good idea of what would happen...i was wrong. The Surat exposed himself and claimed to be their new God king and flipped me the bird, I promptly landed a couple squads of psi warriors and killed their new God along with a number of his fanatical warriors and probably tainted their development, Spock would be pissed. Then war 2 electric boogaloo begun when the 2 biggest empires decided to have another go with me,throwing out 80k fleets at me that through guile,perseverance and sometime luck I have managed to fend off. 30 years into the war they are trying to make peace, but I've occupied a few of their world's and plan on sending small fleets of corvettes in to smash their resources as they have done to mine, turn about is fair play,quiaff?

I would but they're a federation. Wars been going on 50 years and now it's a galactic war with everyone they have ever picked on hitting them. Currently occupying 6 of their planets which is nothing with how huge they are,if they offered me a federation invite it would be a federation victory. My favorite battleship is what I named the gausszilla.
