Something along the lines of standard game, sphere and close HWs?

This way none of you can run and hide no matter what race I have. :)

Back in the bronze age of VGAP, when the 2400 Baud modem ruled the phone lines, when a USR 9600 (proprietary) was drooled over... In my neighbourhood only the wealthy owned a 2400. :( I started with a 300 baud, saved like crazy and eventually upgraded to the 1200! :D My computor was an 8086 and I u...

If you worry about your score, or winning you will never discover new tactics. In every game I try something new to the complete exclusion of normal strategy/tactics that are posted on the web. I will try and adapt a proven tactic from one race and modify/apply it to the race I am playing. I will us...

Well it was called Trade Wars.

The best version was TW2002 v3.0d, because it had the fewest bugs. It later blossomed with a gizzalion addons, etc until it mutated into something else.

I was introduced to VGAP3 at the same time the internet started to grow. Being fairly basic, it wa...

Shardy .... if I had been using SL, we would have had your sorry ass. You were just lucky I felt sorry for you. :)

Mount Jim .... I am finding SL is more useful for races that do not cloak and do not have HYP ships. It does some wacko things sometimes, so you have to keep a close eye.

Unlike a lot of games that I have and used to play, VGAP 3 doesn't age. Sometimes it may get boring .... so I leave for a while and then later I select another race and the magic is back. I find it so .......... intoxicating .... crushing empires, shattering player's egos ..... watching vcr's of ene...
