Because i came across a shielded world guarded by a fleet called the Armistice Initiative and i opened up the world via an archaeology event and it didnt give me the achievement. Im near certain i tried this same world a year or two ago and it didnt give me it then either.

Does it have to be the shielded worlds inside the borders of a Militant Isolationist empire?


I believe so, yes.

Balls, im not getting this achievement this run then.

I don't know if it has to be one of those shielded worlds, but I'd guess it has to be one you open via a normal research project and not an archaeology project, since that cheevo came before archaeology and they might not have updated the requirements.

Honestly? I have no idea how they got there. Probably some inheritance fuckery or whatever?

Well, I am going to ruin set plans. As soon as I fabricate a claim on my vassal I'm going to claim it from them. Helps that Italy is weaker than I am, if I recall.

Also wouldn't be funny if I invaded England at some point?

In the Stellaris 3.0.3 beta, buildings are being modified to cope with the reduced amount of pops in the galaxy. I believe the expression is "more BANG for your fuck"? More "fang for your BUCK"? I dunno, I'm not familiar with silly human phrases.

The Pirate republic is doing good.

Mostly just stuck in an endless series of border wars and raids with the Yeon and their overlords, some fallen empire who's been weaker than me for the last century. I haven't paid a whole lot of attention the the other side of the galaxy but I probably should deal with the Tebrid at some point seeing their driven assimilators and getting pretty close to a few of my vassals.

How do you make your own flag for Stellaris?

First have a paint program on your computer that can open .dds files. Paint.NET is free if you don't already have it or something similar. https://www.getpaint.net/

From Steam right click on Stellaris and go to browse local files to get to the folder. Click on Flags. Open any of the folders on this page. Use these flags so you can know what size is accepted. Create your custom flag and make sure to save it as a .dds file and place one for each size in their respective folder. You'll need a normal sized, small sized, and map sized version.
