Ok i get the idea that you can set alliances at different levels, but somewhere i missed the bit that told me where i type.

Is it in messages ?

Forming an Alliance
You form an alliance by sending an allies add command, like this:

allies add 5

This will offer the Privateers (player 5) an alliance. To confirm the alliance, the Privateers must have to send the same command, with your race number. If you are Birds (player 3), he has to write

allies add 3

To revoke an alliance, or take back an offer, you send an allies drop command:

allies drop 5

Offering Privileges
To offer or revoke privileges, you use the allies config command, like this:

allies config 5 +m ~c -s

The number is again the ally's player number. The following parameters specify the levels to offer:

Parameter Action
+priv Offer privilege unconditionally
~priv Offer privilege conditionally
-priv Withdraw privilege
+/-ships Offer/withdraw ship level
+/-planets Offer/withdraw planet level
+/-mines Offer/withdraw mine level
+/-combat Offer/withdraw combat level
+/-vision Offer/withdraw vision level

Yeah, you simply send a message to yourself with the appropriate commands, e.g.

you want to add the priv as your ally:

allies add 5

then you may send (e.g. in the same message)

allies config 5 +m ~c -s

which defines that you want to offer mine level (unconditionally) and combat level (conditionally) but not ship level.

Also, if you are going to share RST files with your ally, you still need to send the commands to AT.
The line below is true.
The line above is false.

If you use echoview, under tools, Alliance Status. You can set up PHOST alliance options that way.
