Hi all,

I will create here a small forum for all players out there who likes to test races and bring them to their maximum.

If you want to see or show what is possible with a race in a fixed test game, this is the right place.

  • What is the max Resources you can get by year 2420 ?
  • What is the most minerals you get with a AR in year 2430 ?
  • What are the most BB you could build in year 2450 ?

If this is something you are interested in seeing or perhaps participating in, then enjoy.

The rules and scores for the best 3 players will be shown in the Challenges - Score forum.
So check it out soon for more information .

Sounds fun.
I'm in.

Looking forward to the first challenge.

Will we be using the same seed? I would think that would be required for a fair comparison.

Hi ,


first we will wait if their are players interested in such a challenge. Then I will come with the rules.
But the same seed is only fair if you play the same race.
So the universe setting will given to all.
Also prescan will be allowed as you could not check it.
And of course there have to be backups from turn 2400 until the end to be checked if you are one of the first 3 persons.( so you are in the rules)

I used to be an avid play of Sid Meier's Civ games, and over at the civfanatics forums they had a 'game of the month' feature somewhat similar to these challenges.

One nice feature there is that they had separate 'spoiler' forums based on certain milestones. I.e. in CH2 we could have opened a "pre-game" forum (for discussion general tactics without knowing specifics of the game other than the setup) and a "jihad era" forum open to those who have reached the jihad tech. That way, it is possible to discuss specifics without the chance of 'spoiling' anything to players who are still struggling with that part.

(a suggestion for a future challenge similar to this one - set the victory condition earlier, e.g. arm BB's plus owning 6 homeworlds, or something like that. After that point I don't think there will be much challenge, and so much of the final date will be determined by who has the spirit to grind the AI efficiently. An earlier VC will mean that the final date is determined more by early game skill. )
