Hi

so playerlist is the same exept Altruist joined in ?


ccmaster


PS :

Little bit late for rules but what think all the players about a deadline of 20 years where you are not allowed to set anyone to friend and have all to enemies ?

I have in mind with this rule that not 2 player ally in the first year even they have not seen each other. ( early ally gives a great boost to both players )

Well in this game it would be a detriment to ally with someone without seeing them, they might be on the other side of the universe and then you would have to wait before setting someone else to friend. Well I suppose IT races are the exception to this.

Even so, I don't mind this rule, though 20 turns seems like a lot. Since everyone will be given plenty of scanner/scrapper ships, we should be able to find each other soon enough. If we are going to add this rule (I don't care either way), maybe it should be 10 turns.

Well, due to the scrappers the usual alliance-research boost won't happen early on.

That's rather bad style, sure enough, but to be honest so far I have never seen it happen.

I think the restriction we already have about forming an alliance are sufficient.

I am glad that Altruist is playing, and that we are going with the slower schedule that I voted against. Real life has asserted itself.

Since we already have a rule to notify host of change in player relation (and should start with everyone set as enemy) we could have an addendum that states players must meet before changing to neutral or friend; this the host could verify because he has a lot of free time. Very Happy

So as I mentioned I will be on vacation (without internet) for the last week in thus month (specifically the 22nd to 29th).

However, it turns out that I will be going to work a few times during that time, so I may be able to get a few turns done, since it will still be pretty early in the game.

I seem to remember that there is a way to set that a turn will generate if everyone is in, but not by a time deadline. Would it be possibly to do that during my vacation? That might allow us to get at least a few turns done...

I also think that the current ally rules are sufficient to not need additional constraints for the first 20 years. Yes, you could start early on tech trading, but with only one ally allowed, you better know for sure that you want to stay with him/her for a while. Otherwise you're just helping your future enemy. I think very early tech trading allies won't easily happen in this game setup.

We should accommodate you.

There are three components here
1. Years to generate per turn (0 = game on hold).
2. Maximum hours until forced turn generation (0 = use schedule below).
3. Schedule.
I tried (in SBTC) to set 1/0/0 (one year per gen, no max hours, and no schedule), but SAH wouldn't take it. The alternative might be to set some high number of hours e.g. 120 or 168. Meh. Our host will figure something. I wish the real world were so easy to arrange.

The solution is
# to set a schedule for example 7 days later or whenever the holiday is finished
# and to check the box "gen when all orders are in" (or however the box is called)

Result:
Whenever all turns are in, the next turn will be generated. If not all turns are in, we all patiently wait until the set schedule (your holiday end) has been reached and the next turn will be generated even when not all orders are in.

The universe is in Ron's Inbox now.

My absolute apologies for the delay. After finding out they're transferring our department to a director that wants to outsource our jobs, the 10 year old hardware that houses the student website for the University went down hard. It's been a fun week.

Regardless, I have set up the game and verified that all player files are working correctly. I've set the email address eyityotg at gmail.com on my phone, and will be checking it at least an hour before turns generate for any hold requests. I will email the turns to each player and once SAH has the game page up, you may upload your turns and we'll begin!

Ever Onward,

Victor Manuel.

Welcome to the nonagon! It is a balmy 140 degrees on the outside and a more temperate 40 degrees in the middle. Alien smile

Sorry for a bit of delay from my end. I am camping in the boonies. I expected to have internet at both locations, but none available in the near area at the first site. I'm good this week and just sent in my race file Smile

Cheers, Rolf.

Indeed, the game files are in Ron's Inbox. Best of luck to everyone - on a side note, please notice that your Default Battle Orders are set to 'Enemies Only'. This was so that the scrappers could transfer without dying.

Ever Onward,

Victor.

The game is up since 3 days.
But Crushers, Culture and ZooZoo seem to have problems uploading their first orders.

Any problems we can perhaps help with? Wrong email-addresses or autohost-emails accidently getting caught in the spam filter?
