I'd like to drop in... bit more of an advanced beginner, though. I'd like to take HE, although it's a race I've not really used before.

Density[ 13 votes ]
1. Sparse 0 / 0%
2. Normal 2 / 15%
3. Dense 6 / 46%
4. Packed 5 / 38%

I thought that's settled?

Size: medium
Density: normal

I think to remember that this is the setting you were proposing?
But my memory could be faulty Shocked

As it's been asked for, here's that poll too... Smile

Not exactly.
I suggested normal for 5-6 players
Dense for 7-9 and packed for >10 Smile

Looks like there was a question outstanding about PBEM /vs/ SAH from the start? Should we do a poll on that as well?

Well, as I explained previously, game will start as PbeM, with the option of switching to AH later on...

Another week passed and looks like no new races submitted and no new votes.

I'm currently waiting for the last races to be submitted, then the game will start...
For the setup, I'd say it will be dense, and public player score will be on, but at a later date. I'll have to think off something that will honor most votes...

So, for all those that haven't yet submitted their racefile, do contact myself, so that I know that your still in...

I had voted for no public scores, but I'd like to change my vote to scores at 2500. It's late enough in the game that it won't matter, and it would just satiate people's curiosity. And there's also a fair chance that the game won't last longer than 2500 anyway...

My Corrupted Race file has been re-sent. (Hopefully not the corrupt version this time) Too bad I didn't read the thread in the first place about the patch level. Confused

What time (and time zone) do you generally expect that you'll be generating turns?

Well, last game it turned out to be generated between 20h00 and 22h00 GMT +1h. But this was largely influenced by turn submissions... Often there were two submissions per day, one in the morning about 10h00 and then the normal at 20h00, once there were four on one day...

As nearly everyone is ready by now, the game will start LATEST this wednesday.
For those who haven't posted their racefiles by then, please hurry if you still want to be in.
Those who want to apply changes to their racefiles, if they are in before start, checked and not corrupted, they will be considered, but if there is any problem with changed racefiles, that can't be solved before the missing players are in, game will start with the validated, older files.

About turn generation:
In general it's 24h generation, not playing weekends.
In the case that all turns are in, I'll generate an additional turn, but with the number of players and timezone differences, I don't think this will happen...


Looking forward for a great game Wink

It's a pity, but I haven't been able to reach Shadow_Whist for one week now, still haven't got a racefile from him Crying or Very Sad
Well he's still got till tomorrow to submit.

All the other racefiles are in and validated. By tomorror evening GMT+1, you'll all get the game files and first turn. Please do confirm that everything is fine upon receiption of these.

Thanks
