Universe is created. Sorry it took a day longer, I had to gen it many times to get fair HW spacing. In the small universe with 6 players it tended to put a few players in an advantageous position compared to others. I think I got a setup with pretty good spacing.

I appreciate that effort for fair placement Smile Stars doesn't always do a good job there.

I've received the game files, but the host forgot to include the player data so I can setup the game. I've emailed him back.

A challenge?
Makes it easier for the -f, usually they have quite a hard time.

I've typically had pretty good luck as -f generally. This round is a bit unusual for me, as I have factory settings. I have run test beds with 30 germ, they were easily my worst Crying or Very Sad

When I used to run factory based races I would always throw a few RW points at mineral concentrations to try to avoid this situation. Wasn't an option here.

Definitely a challenge Twisted Evil

Sorry about the germ concentration, I genned so many universes trying to get good spacing that the germ had to take a back seat.

It is also a good experience for the nubs:-)

Could you, please, list the players finally taking part and which of them are experienced (or rather their nicks as they will be listed on the game page therefore we know with whom not to ally)?



Before this topic gets locked can we have this, please?

This is my understanding.

Experienced from game page:
Victor [Roach]
Altruist [Bizarres]
Brandon [zoid]

Beginner from game page:
Josh [Arelu]
Mijgo [Humanoids]
Ian [Snth6]

Goodluck.

That's what I have puzzled together as well.

The only player I can't sort to a name here in the forum is Ian [Snth6], though.

I've suddenly become curious: how old are you, guys? Smile
And, where do you study/work?
Don't answer if you don't want to.
Just some sociological research.

For example, I'm 29, biophysicist by education, work as programmer.

Could we also get a complete list of rules on the game page? As I understand it, not including rules that no longer matter, they are:

One alliance of two players shall win, no more and no less, through annihilation or galactic consensus.
Only one ally shall be set to friend, all others set to enemy.
Battle orders shall be set to "attack who = enemy."
Technology may be exchanged only with an ally.
Experienced players shall not ally with each other until at least 24(30?)
Chaff, split fleet dodge, merge fleets after gating, mine damage dodge are allowed.
Autogens are to be MTWTF till '30 or request of a slowdown.
Autogens are to be MWF thereafter.
Player scores at '30.

Have we decided that experienced players won't attack for x number of years? What became of Altruist's suggestion of having the host offer coordination to the newbies as to experienced players' locations? You said there were special placements?

Thanks for all the hard work, David.

@BackBlast and Altruist:

Sounds great. Expected something like that.

> How unusual!

Is it? I'd never thought so. This game is kinda about communication, why not communicate a little more?

I am all for handicaps in the race design but once settled in the universe it is full power and my deadly xrays kill them all.


Says the guy who's ship designers have never even seen an xray. Laughing

Kill them all is fairly accurate though.

I'm 0-2 on battles that had losses with Altruist, and I think Arelu are at least 0-1. I'm not sure yet about the Humanoids, Snth, or Moon Roaches.
