Aaaaand we're off :)
Have fun everyone.

Good to see only the BR5 is anti-cloak immune.
Now I will allow the privateer to steal 1 of my ships.
But no more than that you hear!

This has been done.
You will see the allied status set next turn and your allies rst file will be included in the mail from AutoTroll

Hello,

this is my first Phost game. We use Phost 4.1f ?

Addendum: At the moment I can not reach my teampartner, albatross. As soon as I reach him I submit my turn.

If it's your first PHost game, you will be in for a lot of new things!

You can read up over here:
http://phost.de/docs.html

For instance about the differences:
http://phost.de/phost4doc/diffs.html

Be sure to look into all the extended missions available.
They give you a lot of extra opportunities.

What client are you using?

Good luck :)

PHost has extra things you can use, but if you want you can play just like you would with normal THost. The only difference in that case that you have to worry about from the client side is the way alliances are setup\offered.
If you are critical about formulas, then there might be some rounding differences, but for most part this game is setup to be very close to THost.

Oh, we use PHost4.1f yes.

This is my first PHost game as well. After looking over the documentation ... I may never play a THost game again. I'm in love with the fact I can drop exact amounts of MCs onto unowned planets without waiting a turn. That's just with the extended missions ... there are even Command Messages <head explodes>

You will soon find out why those missions actually do not benefit the privateer so much ^^

BitMask, asking for the extended mine lay mission, what is my race number here?

1: T1 Fed
2: T2 Lizard
3: T3 Birds
4: T1 Klingon
5: Privateer
6: Borg
7: Crystalline
8: T2 Fascist
9: T3 Starfleet

At least that's what VPA tells me when I bring up the message interface.
So it must be in one of the files :)

Just to add for future games.

Aren't you getting a playerX.rst file?
If so, then the X is your number.
