Re: Game Over

Yeah, you really lucked out on this round. Gravitonics are a mayor advantage on an exploration map, with races dropping out so soon (most of them your neighbours?), and what looks like the best planet clusters. Shame, from the look of things, things were ramping up for a war on multiple fronts. Crys...

Re: Turn 8 again?

Yeah, I got the message just fine. My brain decided to group it with the 24h-remaining warnings on MTWTF turns making me overlook it entirely >_< The offending neurons have been pruned and send back for retuning.

Turn 8 again?

Any reason why we received turn 8 again instead of turn 9?

Image link top of forum page

I noticed that the big image link on the top of the page (the orange planet one) points to the board index.. not circus-maximus.com it displays. Wouldn't it make more sense to point it to the website rather then the forum? Especially considering there's a perfectly good link to the board index a mer...

Re: First turn oddities

Been reading some more about the intricacies of Planets files, and I wondered: Would it be possible to temporarily hotseat the two players so the game is no longer stalled? Have them send their VPWORK folders (zipped) to C-M, merge them into single VPWORK folder, run MAKETURN and submit the new .TRN...

Re: First turn oddities

I think that would be http://www.stcplay.de/, according to http://www.vgaplanets.com/store.htm
Couldn't access that webpage myself though.

Re: First turn oddities

I think I also understand why their score wasn't affected: the scoring doesn't use stats that are hit by the PHP Abyss thingy. You can build mines, factories, defense, etc which gives points, but ship movement and production (which are hit by the abyss) do not. Or at least, not this turn. I'll start...

First turn oddities

The Feds and Lizards got hit with a PHP Abyss warning (same player/reg plays both races but messed up .trn building?), yet it didn't seem to have affected their score on the game list. Just a bogus message or does the PHP Abyss hit them on the next turn?

Re: Salutations!

Two questions: 1. Could you add some info to the Beginner's FAQ (or a readme.txt in the first zip file send when joining a game) about what to do with additional files that are send along with .rst files? For long time returning players or brand new players, it's not immediately clear you need to un...

Re: Salutations!

I'll see if I can track it down. (Managed to find the actual name, "Return to the Natives" or RTTN.) But other then being mentioned on http://www.donovansvgap.com/people/armin.htm, it's a dead end on the web. It might have survived somewhere on a CD or old HD I got stored, but that's gonna be a big ...

Re: Salutations!

I've been reading the docs, yes.
So it's probably best if I join Brass Tacks 9 then? Looks like it's pretty much NoFrills but with another host program.

Salutations!

Just joined your little circus, so I thought it would be nice to introduce myself. I'm not exactly a new player, but last time I played must have been over a decade ago, when Spaceport Hamburg still existed, so I'm gonna be a bit rusty for a while ;D When I was still active, I wrote a little addon c...
