Seen through ally vision. It is still (yellow) swaq with a yellow supply circle, even though it is owned by thinksome (blue). The stealthed since, is obviously when it changed hands.

As an addition to this, I think if allied vision is going to continue working the way it does, "you see what your ally sees", then you really need to be able to see your allies combat reports in the sit rep. It gets really confusing when allies fight an enemy and you're unsure whether the enemy ships moved out of sight or were destroyed.

In this game I also got a prediction of +2 population growth on a 1.00 planet... (it was really +0.14 as it should be)

90' to miss next turn. Maybe delegate on one of your allies?

There, we lost 3 ships and are bound to lose 3 more because of miscommunication of intent and orders. Had the game shown planned ally moves, this would have been prevented.

Seems miscommunication evens out in average :)
You only jumped with half the fleet? Too bad i am not there to see it - i delegate from this turn to swaq so i am able to address other stuff. So wish you an interesting game for the time being, I hope I will be back soon.

the second batch of orders (when I realised that you had warships parked above) was to pile everything at dry heat. But it was not applied and the empty carriers jumped anyway.

We don't strangle our damned, we don't breath. We prefer dissolution.

For next game, I propose no teams, forbidden diplomacy, disabled chats, temporal bans from the forum, bot networks for DDoS attacks on the email servers of anyone playing the game. That way I think we could make ThinkSome turn twice as fast than currently :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Three times as fast when I'm not playing!

On the other hand, you might get Hyperant and Magnate ;)

Now, seriously, for 14th game I'd like a substantially bigger galaxy.
o01eg, how big a galaxy can be for it to run in your server without causing trouble? 500 systems? Whatever it is, I'd like a game with systems per empire = that number divided by number of players.
