In terms of people, yes I agree its been quite. Now as for activity ... since turn five, I've pretty much figured out who my neighbors. Also, odds of meteor is set to 2% and every turn so far we have had at least one. It's been at least 10 years since I played last, but I don't remember such frequent impacts. I'm very excited to be playing again :D

Well,

hconfig says (later):

"Number of LARGE meteors impacting 1"

So there is at least 1 meteor aiming at my homeworld every turn, and a 2% chance a second armageddon comes nearby ... :/

I know some of my neighbours, do they know me ?

If they played on the BBS "Dazed in Confused" in Charleston, South Carolina then yes : ) I just recently figured out the math ... it's been closer to 18 years. I'm sure there are still people here that have played even that long ago <G>. I played on RC World for 1 game, but I seen my name wasn't even listed anymore.

After 550 days RC world removes you an inactive account. What's 550 days in the history of 18 years :P

I returned to rcworld and found myself deleted, too. :(


But I am sure ppl here have been playing with or against me at rcworld, in the glorious past!

I can still see myself in the player list even though my last game there ended in 2007.

Perhaps you just angered someone enough to be taken off the list :)

I dont think so, I left before 2007 ... but I never logged on after that, be it on the forums or a game. Maybe thats it.

I left RC World because it made me feel like I had to wear a suit and tie to play there :?

I now see where the HConfig setting wmerkel was referring to is. It's in the initial forum post for this game. I neglected to check those as I thought they where identical to the in-game messages.
