Vote to end game

Now that the Robot player stopped sending in turns I'm pretty convinced it's over ;).

Re: Welcome to No Frills 131

Wow, what a lot of hostile talk! As far as I know, it's a game. And part of the game is diplomacy and finding a good ally [at least, EVERY guide out there seems to tell me that]. As long as nobody cheats or breaks some rules, all is fair I guess. I was fighting bots and empire, Lizards was fighting ...

Re: Lets end this Game

I still want to see a cpl of turns. Plus I guess the robot also doesnt want to quit, he's been trying to take a planet from me for 50 turns now, and his golem fleet is finally inching to within 100 LY!

[Well, and he also is finally amassing enough golems to be able to do some serious sweeping]

Christmas break

Would it be possible to stall the game for one turn?
I will be busy with family during christmas, so would appreciate if the next turn would run on tuesday 30th, skipping friday.

Holiday break

Hi, can we have a holiday break after the turn runs tonight? During christmas I won't have time to play.
Have the game skip the cycle on friday, and run host again on december 30th?

and happy holidays of course!

Re: How does rounding work with minesweep range?

Did some testing on a testgame, turns out the ships distance to the minefield is indeed rounded. So if you are within 0.5 LY of the minefield outer edge, HOST will report your distance to the minefield is 0 LY and that you are INSIDE the minefield ;). *edit* and yes, that means you can sweep webmine...

How does rounding work with minesweep range?

My webmines got swept by a ship 0.4 LY outside the webminefield, and another by a ship 0.2 LY outside the minefield. I checked the host settings: webmine sweeprange = 0 I knew my minefield size, I just scanned my own mines. There were no cloakers involved [not possible given the math of #beams and s...

Re: Building SDSF with tech1 engines OK or not?

I did not miss that casebolt ;). I understand your reasoning, but from a rules point of view, it's rather hard to referee. I can ALWAYS claim that I 'intend' to recycle them at some point in the future for PBP. So as long as there is no limit to the 'when', effectively you have an OK to have spaceju...

Re: Building SDSF with tech1 engines OK or not?

Exactly, that was the thing I remembered. So the question becomes: What is "queue stuffing"? Is building junk to recycle later for PBP queue stuffing? Or is this only queue stuffing for certain instances of 'later'? - If you recycle them the NEXT turn it is OK? - If you recycle them before the ship ...

Building SDSF with tech1 engines OK or not?

Just wondering, I seem to remember to read that it was considered bad gamemanship (and even a violation of circus-maximus rules) to build loads of SDSF with tech1 engines, just to keep others from building anything usefull later on (and to get PBP from recycling when needed). Is this true? If so, I ...

Re: HOST will downgrade techlevels if you play 1 turn unregi

As you both say, it is a lesson I will never again forget :oops: .
Just though I should mention it on the board, so others may be warned before making the same mistake.

Imagining making this mistake when having far more starbases with high tech levels... :shock:
