One way to corrupt it is make a race and then change the race name. I forgot which way, a longer or shorter name, I would avoid either...

Thanks! Got it. I changed the name from "Test" to the real name I am using... but I have since rebuilt the file (as I did not expect it to be repairable...) and will send soon.

Yes, June 27th is acceptable for race files. We've got several people who just joined in, and I know we would rather a quality game than a quick start. (although both are nice Wink

As for a test, I'd suggest the 6+ player map. It looks like we have seven people interested so far.

So I'll be looking for race files from all interested players via PM or at eyityotg at gmail by Monday, July 27th and we'll start this monkey up right!

So how many players do we have?

I'm on the road to GenCon today, and will build test universes over the next several days. Since I wont be creating the universes until tonight, you've got time.

It sounds to me like you have until the end of the day to get a race file submitted, as he will not start generating until tonight.

There is an update to the main rules farther down, the first post is NOT the current rules.

I would think you have the weekend?

Vmanuel is at GenCon for the weekend, so I don't think he's going to be able to remap the universe in his free time.

Having to deal with children in real life means late nights at GenCon aren't too hard to survive Wink

Mac, I'd like to have your file in ASAP so I can hopefully start the game generation.

To be fair, I'll give everyone one more chance to update their race file as long as it's in by midnight Friday CST. You have 23 hours.

Also, the players so far are:

david
neil
raindancer
ed
rolf

vmanuel is hosting (not playing).
If you pw your race file you will need to give him the password, and let him know if you change it later.
I strongly recommend reading through the entirety of this thread, as the rules have changed through iteration and a number of potentially beneficial resources have been referenced. Smirk

I've found rules in 6th post on 1st page. Any other major changes ?

If 5 players or less:
Single player victory. At any given time no player may have more than 1 other player set to friend, and all other players must be set to enemy. Also, (A)Setting another player to friend requires an email notification to the host (no action required by host, this is only for record keeping for point B), and (B) setting another player to friend initiates a 10 year cool-down period before another player may be set to friend. Point B does not impose any restriction on changing player relation from friend to enemy, only the adding of friend status to a new partner.

If 6 players or more:
Single player victory, or team victory comprising no more than two players. At any given time no player may have more than 1 other player set to friend, and no more than 1 player set to neutral. Also, (A)Setting another player to friend requires an email notification to the host (no action required by host, this is only for record keeping for point B), and (B) setting another player to friend initiates a 10 year cool-down period before another player may be set to friend. Point B does not impose any restriction on changing player relation from friend to enemy (or neutral, so long as no more than 1 player is set to neutral at any time).

In order to clear up any confusion on what a HE -f is, what say we set it to no factory settings worse than 10/10/10, okay?


vmanuel wrote on Thu, 23 July 2015 12:36
Proposed Schedule: Every 0600 Daily through 2450, then 3 or 5 days a week (Player vote)

Alternate Schedule: 0600 MTWThF through 2430, then 3 or 4 days a week (Player vote)

Aaaaaaand Vote!


vmanuel wrote on Sat, 25 July 2015 18:33

it looks like 4 votes for the Alt schedule, and 2 for the Proposed.


It is an iterative process [hence the Topic Description:(tentative parameters for new game )] reflecting and intending some level of inclusivity and engagement, but also to serve as a filter. I wish the latter where more comprehensive and critical, but ... beggars and choosers and horse meat and all ... Sherlock

I am late, perhaps too late with my race file, sorry about that.

Just in case the game isn't genned already, I sent my race file to vmanuel yesterday.

Needed a bit more time than I thought because I ran into the usual problems with Stars and a 64bit-OS. Finally I set up both: DosBox for fast and casual access, Win XP mode for playing.

We'll see.
Nowadays some of those newbies are quite dangerous and good at kicking oldies' ass.

Altruist, you're fortunate that I checked before I started generating. And that the drive from GenCon was so mind-numbing that I didn't start until this morning.

Looks like a game of 8, ladies and germs! Initial universi are genned, and in the process of inspection for mineral concentration. I'll shout once I'm out of the Universe Cave.
