Re: Ninth game on the multiplayer slow game server

I'm in! Hello everyone - I made it to Colonia!

I do hope we start a bit further apart this time - it'd be nice to have a few turns to, you know, colonise a planet or two, before bumping into anyone.

Re: New version changes

First one sounds wrong. Oh, not a new feature then? Seems pretty consistent - when I order an invasion, the first three ships land, and the rest the following turn. (Haven't tried invasions with >6 ships yet.) Does seem a bit buggy, because on the 2nd turn the remaining ships are marked as landing,...

New version changes

Hi all, I just fired up 47bd1a0 and noticed a few things: 1. I seem to be able to land only three troop ships at a time - is this an intentional change? So big planetary conquests take many turns 2. Comsats now have three internal slots - yay for troops drops! 3. My ships can see stealthy races befo...

Re: Seventh game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

Sorry folks, I'm just not feeling it. Sorry to hear about another bad start. :( Hopefully you'll join another game in the future. tbh it wasn't a bad start, particularly, I just got turned off by seeing two neighbour supply lines on turn 7! And fwiw last time wasn't a terrible start either, in term...

Re: Seventh game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

Thank you. I started during xmas hols and just passed halfway. For me the agony is less about the jumping and more the compulsion to map any unmapped bodies in systems I visit - hours and hours of flying half a million ls across binary systems!

Re: Seventh game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

Sorry folks, I'm just not feeling it. Last time I was gated behind three monsters, this time only two but the one route into the rest of the galaxy led me immediately into two neighbouring empires. I really really dislike the frequency of monsters in the galaxy settings - the Low setting is way way ...

Re: Seventh game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

Sorry not to be around much - I'm not travelling for a while, but work is getting hard, and it's about to go crazy on 1st Feb! I will do my turns over breakfast until they get complicated, and then I will only do them in the evenings (GMT/CET). If I survive long enough, I might be asking for the tim...

Re: Seventh game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

also it is better to decide what to do with https://www.freeorion.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=98768#p98768 before new game. Thank you, but as Vezzra said I think any of my suggestions are quite fundamental balance changes to population so probably need debating and modelling somewhere. Maybe game 8 ....

Should something be done with it before release or next game?
Not for 0.4.9. That is a major adjustment/change far too big this close to the release.
FWIW I agree with that, I was just thinking aloud about longer-term balancing.

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

There's a fine line isn't there between starts that are too diverse (like this game, comparing mine and L29Ah, or last game comparing mine and Alleryn's - in both cases the good start was so much better than the bad that there was no real chance of the loser being able to win) and starts that are to...

Hang on, TSO is not playing the next game?? What'd I miss?
I'll take a break from playing to finish some development projects.
Well after two games as an ally and one as an enemy I have to say it's been a blast. Good luck with the projects!

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

So the Umpteen-and-oneth Battle of Capella has finally resulted in the long-delayed victory for the evil purple Chato. With the evil pink Chato similarly spreading like a cancer across the eastern half of the galaxy, I think it's time to declare a Chato victory. I'm not quite sure how this works bec...

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

In my world it's National Security Secretariat but never mind.

So what I want to know is, how are you three going to abide by the rule that the game can only be won by an alliance of two people, or a single person. TSO01eg vs L29Ah?

Re: Sixth game on the multiplayer slow game server (0.4.9)

TSO was a formidable ally, so I am not surprised he is a formidable adversary. This has been a fun game - having been knocked out first, it's been a privilege to have another go. I think SAO is on the point of conceding to TSO1Ah but would not wish that to be taken as bad grace. I'm very happy to pl...
