Is the New DLC worth having, also whats up with portaits?
So I load up an old save from a month or so ago, and I notice theres a new DLC. I figure I'll look into it later, but then I notice my President looks different.
I go look through the human portraits and... theres no white people. Male or Female... like... what?

Okay so as I'm writing this I found that apparently they brought the old one in as a second option. But... is there an option to turn the new one off? Tbh they look kinda weird. And while I'm sure theres gonna be some claims about isms or whatever it def makes me uncomfortable to know that paradox legit added a HUMAN portait set with intent to replace the old and had every race but chose to leave white people out. That sounds like more than an oversight and I want -ism out of my game. is it possible to get rid of the new ones but still keep the current version of the game or should I just build a death star whenever i see them in game?

As for the DLC, its at 50%. Just how bad ARE the rebellions? I keep hearing that that and bugs are the main issues. Bugs will probably get fixed pretty quickly, but are rebellions game breaking or are they something thats just gonna be a looming threat? Personally I like the idea of rebellions. It means you have to pay attention to your planets more carefully and pay more attention to the needs of your aliens/humans. so if its not as bad as it sounds im down for it, but if one rebellion just leads to another and my empire gets yeeted from a simple mistake I dont think Im down to play.

They said that they will bring back old portraits with next patch.

They removed them because of "woke" agenda but got so much backlash in forums and here on steam that theyre basically forced to bring them back.

And as i said they allready announced they willl reintroduce ALL of the old portraits with next patch.

They brought them back because of "impotent forum whiner" agenda, yes.

And don't try to deny it, it's defnitely an agenda secretly propagated by shady billionaires. I read it on the internet site I go to in order to confirm my biases rather than all that mainstream conservative stuff, so it must be true.

I can barely tell what your position is, due to your poor writing

My position is that mortals are fools and the universe won't miss us when we inevitably wipe ourselves out through a gray goo nanoswarm in 2357.
I was really excited for the dlc but the vassal system seems abit underwhelming. If you are starved for content, go for it. I don't give a ♥♥♥♥ about the portraits.

This is true, but unfortunately is only the case if you choose said portraits for your own empire. Random generated humans use the new ones
All dlc and updates are rainbow sunshine shower and sunflower flower.

O look someone who thinks you can easily put a system into a box, duh why didn't I know you could do that.

Pretty sure the devs wanted more options themselves after trying their own product and added back in. But go on saying it was forum response like a conspiracy theorist.

Oh suuuuure, that's what you want us to think, isn't it!

Well, I, as an independent thinker, I'll have none of your propaganda!
yea yea, politics, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, blah blah blh. Can I get rid of them somehow and how bad are the rebellions in the new DLC?

It's not a DLC thing, the free update messed those up.

It got better, they aren't as inevitable now.

But I still think the unintended rebellion mechanics should have stayed, to mix it up.
And this thread has run it's course.
