Time for a Vanilla game - simple(ish) rules for a basic game of Stars! Host (me) will NOT be playing.

Number of planets per player as close to 40 as possible, universe set into a giant ball of planets. The horoscopes in this universe are WEIRD. Seriously, think about the astrological charts these guys have to make!

Acc BBS is on. No Pubic Player Scores.
Random Events are On.

At least 6 players.

No pregame alliances. Any skill level welcome.
Communication allowed, only 1 player set to Friend at any time.

No CAs, or JOATs with NAS.

Victory settings: High score at 2550 or player consensus. No more than 2 in an alliance.

Schedule
0800 GMT every day through 2430. After 2430 the game will switch to M-W-F. After 2475 the game will switch to M-Th. Changes outside of that will require majority vote of players.

Everyone starts with two delay requests, and those surviving through 2475 get a third. Requests may be used to delay no longer than two regularly scheduled gens, and may be split at hosts discretion.

Standard Rules: The normal cheat disclaimer applies.

Player Exploitable Bugs / "Features"
Repair after gating, chaff, ISB trumps IT gate scanning, split fleet dodge are allowed.
Mine damage dodge and mine damage allocation are allowed.
Do not cause target list overload: do not cause more than 100 of your fleets to be at any one location.
Do not cause battleboard overflow: do not send more than 75 of your tokens into a battle (merge happens after battle).
Do not put alpha or beta torps on ships with more than two engines.
No explicit ban on minimum damage, but the last two should be adequate to nerf it.

AR exception: Alternate Reality PRT may build up to 6 cheap colonizers (Colonize without Colonizer), anytime up to 2415.

Anything else on the Known Bugs (JRC3) - Player Exploitable Bugs / "Features" list is disallowed. See the list in the Must Know section of the forum.
