From OP:

Game settings are as follows:

- Distant players position
- AccBBS
- random events on


Thanks, how about size?

Small normal, unless we have a great influx of players. ManicLurch is going for 30 planets/player. With 4 players, that's approximately small/normal, distant starts, 2.6 JRC4, from a computer, somewhere on earth probably, and with a smile, I bet.

Yes, please get me a racefile as soon as you can and you can be our 4th player


Ok, I have something playable. How do you want me to send you it?

If you click onto the login-/nick-name of the player, you can usually send an email or pm (personal message). Both ways allow a race file to get attached.

I think the race file must also be in the form of ".r", rather than the ".r1" that it might have saved itself as when you made it. If this is the case for your race, just resave it, changing it to .r at the end. Might even be able to just rename it in the folder. I never tried.

I had to send it as a zip, it wouldn't let me attach it without zipping it first

so... is there an intended starting date for the game?

@Manic, if you haven't started creating the game yet, can I send a new race with some minor tweaks?

Sorry about the late reply.

No, I haven't make the game yet.

So you can make tweaks.

Racefiles can be sent by PM, or email me: david at salempfg dotcom

Oboi Oboi!

Edit: Is it is beginner's only game? I.e. do the alliance rules still hold?

We have 3 beginners and one experienced player who is taking a handicap.

The alliance rules are:

You can have only one ally at a time.
Only one player 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.

Stupid newb question: is it normal that I didn't get any email yet about the game?

(As announced earlier, I'm flying out to the US tomorrow for 10 days or so, but I guess I should be able submit turns anyway as the first 10 turns shouldn't take that much time...)

Depends. Sometimes the host sends out the generation files, more often the first turn will be sent AFTER Ron has set up the game at autohost. In this case the game hasn't been set up yet, so don't worry (set up games you can see here: minefield of current games).

It might take a few more days but then you'll receive an email with link and password to the game-interface at autohost (possibly together with your first m-file). At the game interface you can also download your turn (m-file), the universe-file (xy-file) and up-/download your orders (x-file).

I haven't received them either, mrvan. RL is-- SHAKE ZULA, THA MIKE RULA --stop it! Bad subconscious. RL is consuming.

Game is up:

http://starsautohost.org/games/newbeg.htm

You should have gotten an email from autohost with your upload password.

Go to the game page, download the Universe definition file.xy and your .m file.

Once all turns are in, I will take game off hold.
