Wait... how are... this...

This is bizarre. Stellaris is a fantastic game, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how they plan to solve the “4x controller problem.” I tried to get Stellaris to work with my Steam Link and while it streamed fine, I could never get a control scheme that was satisfactory. There was always some critical function I was missing that couldn’t be easily or accessibly mapped to the controller without a slew of modifier keys and wonky workarounds.

In the end it was easier just to use a keyboard.
