No, I just want a PHost game to play without taking two weeks of haggling on setting to get it going.

So, when ][avok gets a chance he can set up a PHost game with default settings, One Ally and Starbase+ add-ons and Thost shiplist.
The line below is true.
The line above is false.

Well you are only 1 of 11 players in the game. Others might want haggle about the default settings.

Phost games are far and few inbetween on this game site, we may want to open this for debate.

So without having to dig through the entire thread again, how about just answering the question.

BANE and Enemy#1 I would like to look at the advantages and disadvantages of changing the some of the other settings to possibly offset the increased number of minefields.

The reason's are simple if I remember correctly.
1ST to end the endless debates on things, just keep it default.
2nd keep it simple for the new guys to phost.

I really don't want to spend a week or so haggling over settings and since PHost isn't played here much, it is easier to teach the noobs.

I deleted my other somewhat redundant thread and will ask here. Put me on the list or tell me where to pick up the paper # and stand in line :)

We should open another thread for that then.
Just an ongoing pconfig discussion, merits etc.
