Jay has finally caved and made a game with my ridiculous settings.

Standard settings apart from.

Dark Galaxy disabled.

Stars per player 1

No ships or infrastructure to begin with.

$3000 starting cash.

Not a game you need a of time to make your moves in :smile:

#2

Ha! That’s a great concept map - I’m in, under my usual alias, Panda Bear.


#3

If there was ever a game appropriately named, this is it! :wink:

P.S. Guess I don’t need to spend much on carriers at the start.


#4

I was thinking it should have been named “The Ultimate Mexican standoff”


#5

LOL - that name does even better describe this game.

The game settings don’t appear to be visible … but am I correct that we can trade with anyone?
It would really be dastardly if you could only trade with players in Scan range.


#6

I like how some people took their favourite color/shapes despite them being in ridiculous positions :smiley:


#7

Sekoms took Pink Hex from me. I want him dead. :wink:


#8

I dont know what to spend my money on. I’m freaking out.

Does anybody know if you can buy 6 science with $3000

update: you can buy 8 science or 17 industry or 25 economy.


#9

This ought to be interesting.


#10

Qwerty: As you can imagine, the Hulk does prefer green - glad to see the Wizard in the game.

Sekoms: Did MattS take your color/shape?

Jay: Send me your $3,000 and I’ll let you know how far it goes! :wink:

Krusnik (and others): Yea, this game is going to be crazy - good job Ross coming up with something different … really different. It will probably be real quiet for the first week, and then I’ll wake up one morning and BAMM, I’m gone!

In terms of strategy, I wonder who is going to launch first … because whoever goes ALL-IN against an opponent will have all their neighbors launch against them - D’OH! :wink:

And even if players go AFK, that isn’t beneficial since with one star/player, they are going to be camped out there … and if there are several AFK’ers, they will share tech and get powerful as a group - maybe the AI-Bot will win.

If anyone is playing with ALT accounts, that will be greatly beneficial here.


#11

I’d hope they wouldn’t be so scurrilous.

Been discussing techs. With only one world, construction costs spiral, so terra, exp and banking seem more valuable.


#12

I’m interested to see how hard this makes the AI as well.


#13

Lol, I spent 20 mins with a calculator working all that out too! Is there a formula for working out how much more progressively expensive a star’s ecom/ind/sci gets based on it’s resources?


#14

There is. Qwerty posted it I believe?


#15

Here’s the “Terraforming Calculator” forum link


#16

Thanks


#17

No Hulk, I have no fav shape or color on here


#18

Well someone has already taken purple circle so I’M NOT PLAYING!


#19

One more player needed!


#20

And MADNESS has started!

For reasons unclear, I’m not able to see the game parameters … but it’s 24 hour production and you can only trade with players in Scan range … this is going to be … Madness! :wink: :wink:

P.S. Updated post with map below - probably won’t change for a while …
