Get the Planet is finished.
Yet another behemoth of a game with 16 players that lasted 1,5 years.
For those who doesn't know, the universe was a circle where the objective was to take, hold and build a starbase on the center planet (FoxTrot) and let that starbase/dock survive 3 years. everyone started at the edges, except ccmaster, who controlled 2 center races. Nobody could set each other to friends, except the center races.
The game went through 2 phases.
In the first phase, ccmaster with his 2 races expanded so quick and extensive that in the end it was decided that even though we were 14 other races, there was no good way to actually win against him (no friend settings and tech trading was allowed between the rim players)
In the second phase, ccmaster mostly abandoned his races, and there was then a race for the other races to explore, expand, exploit and exterminate and hopefully hold the center.
The game was stopped in 2576, with still noone holding FoxTrot. (A very difficult task due to continuous packet bombardment) The unofficial winner would be the newbies, after winning a battle with more than 8k nubians involved. (The battle has it's own thread in the bar, as a possible new battle engine bug was discovered).
The game could have been dragged out for decades yet, but I think he would have won in the end.
My own race, the Andorians, was the #1 race for a long time, but dropped to #2 in 2557. I can write more about my own race in a reply, let us first explore the game in all it's glory with this animated gif, as I have now received the game files from the host. Here you can see the initial glorious ccmaster expansion, and everything up to the end:

(Sorry Perky, that it seems you have been assigned the same color as ccmaster, I will see if I can fix it later)
Please share your game stories for this game.

There is no need to spend 3 game years on the construction - transfer - back transfer of super-hidden minelayers. This can be done by editing hst and m files.
I wrote a small utility without a GUI that edits hst and m1 files: replaces the first design of the first player with the Scanning minelayer (copyrights - ccmaster) and makes 50 ships in the first fleet of the first player. The amount of fuel I did not change, so 50 Nubians in the orbit of the planet have 50 mg of fuel. Smile
