I have decided to post this thread after noone responded my post in "the Beginning: Rebirth".

So here is my proposition of new game:

It's named Nebula as it will be played in Tiny Universe. It is because I want it to be finished quickly.

I think it should be Packed and with Clumping and Public Players Scores. If You (players Smile ), wish it can also be accelerated.

I think the optimal number of players or 4.

The winning criteria also can be discused, and my proposition is:

The winner must meet one of the following:
1. Exceeds nearest players score by 50%.
2. Attains Tech 14 in 3 fields.
3. Has the highest score after 70 years.

So it will be about competition rather then fight and conquest...

And one last thing: I'm noob - ok, but this game is not necessarily for noobs.

If you think you can beat me with one hand - ok: try it Smile

Floater:

Welcome to autohost. It is great that you want to jump in and host a game.

However, if you read the sticky notice at the top of this forum. This forum is for games whose rules are developed, and about to start. While your post could be construed as that, perhaps you will get a better reception in "The Bar". There, you can discuss the idea with a wider audience (not everyone looks in this thread if they are already playing (an)other game(s). Once you have discussed the pros and cons of different game settings, and decided (mostly) on how you want it set up, then come back and post it here.

I think it could be left here, as many games do get their rules altered after they are offered. Just saying you might get a better reception in "the Bar."

Entitle you thread in the Bar something like "Idea for a new game - Nebula."

OK.
As it was suggested, the topic for discussion about the rules is founded here:

http://starsautohost.org/sahforum/index.php?t=msg&th=447 9&rid=1393&S=2fc731a3864f7b3773bee4f12788d341&pl _view=&start=0#msg_45358


The posts below should be the game access declarations.

Count me in. Are you wanting us to use the standard races or customized ones?

You can use the race of your choice - standard or customized. There are no limits.

As I put in the in the beginning topic - I'm in. I've noticed you haven't put a full game introduction for this so here's one (basing it on the fact this idea came from ITB:Rebirth)

Correct me if I've got anything wrong:

This is a vanilla game, basically starting a few newbies in a tiny universe. There has been much discussion over PPS but it has been decided that PPS should remain off, as this will reward good recon and intelligence-gathering. Turn generation should be moderate (I'd recommend every day to begin, perhaps slowing to every other day once mid-game gets underway) but negotiable.

No teams allowed, however communication and temporary co-operation between players is allowed, so if someone is running away with the game, combined intelligence and force can knock them down a peg or two.

The aim of the game is to just get to grips with the mechanics of the game, so handicaps and such are unnecessary.

Rules as follows:

-Tiny universe
-Positions moderate
-Packed
-(Clumping?) (Unnecessary in my opinion, as a tiny dense universe will be claustrophobic enough anyway, and all this does is put groups of planets together, which will result in a rather more advanced type of game - keep it simple I say)
-AccBBS


-All races allowed, design a custom race though, don't use built in ones. We will find an advanced player to look them over before beginning to point out any major faults. (This is part of the learning process though, and at the end of the day if your race doesn't work out, then you know for next time. I think it would be good if once this game finished a new one with similar rules was started to test what you've learnt from the last one)

-Usual cheats disclaimer: chaff, split fleet and gating repair allowed, all else banned (check the bar if you are unsure of these)

-four/five players (any more and we'll be a little cramped)

-Victory conditions: (I reckon last man standing, or 66% universe owned, but open to suggestion)

Hello,
I would like to join this game and learn. I have experience only playing by myself, not with humans.
