Hi!
So I'm in the all-AR game, players are fielding BBs, Ultras, Jihads, tech-14 shields, robo-super-miners etc. But the MT doesn't want to show. According to sources the latest year MT should show would be 2465, but this did not happen in our game.

Could that be a problem with uni resizing? We're in the medium normal uni that was resized to circular shape and sparse density. So does anyone remember if you too had problems with MT arriving, when you've been in a reshaped/resized uni?

BR, Iztok

In another resized universe (ATSR series), the MT made an appearance around 2450.
I just think that your AR universe has scared the MT away with all those mineral fountains ready to jump at him, like hungry bears on noisy humans dipped in honey.

ps - I'm sure there are some w24 Armageddons nubians being built, as we read this..

Umm, please remember, it's sparse uni. That's the initial expansion speed about halved. In my small sparse testbeds my race would hit 100 ARm BBs around '80. Nubians are in this game likely stuff of the fin-de-si├Ęcle. Rolling Eyes

In DD6 it never showed up either, not until the game finished. That one was reshaped as well.

Hi!
Thank you for your answer! Do you happen to remember, at what year your game ended?

[EDIT] NVM, I've looked at AH games and found the DD6 being over at turn 92. Lots of turns for MT to not show up. Confused

BR, Iztok

What sources are you referring to, iztok?

I just did a few tests; I got first-MT results between 2441 and 2467, and as the MT was never guaranteed on a regen I presume there's no actual upper limit.
