1. An orbitter game with low perterbation. Note that sphere doesn't work well with orbitter, so please avoid that add-on.

2. My second suggestion is a game that should challenge many players of my humble quyality. In this game, the race, add-ons, and primary ally would be unknown to the player until turn 1. Players sign up to a game with something like the following description.
- a race is picked for the player at random.
- the player's primary, rst sharing ally, is also picked at random.
- players will be expected to honor their primary alliance.
- the site host reveals the add-ons and rules for winning after the game starts.
This, of coarse, is only for those who are willing to take a leap of faith.

][avok, please consider me signed up. :salute:
1. - I have been considering an orbiter game, and would like more input from people before I do so. Last time I set one up 1 person joined and I left it up for 3-4 weeks before I took it down.

2. - That's a leap of faith I don't see happening. However if you or someone else can stir up enough interest, I'm happy to throw it together.

Here's 3 ideas for new games -

1. The Killing Moon II

2. Sandstorm. A truely "blind" game - using the Explore add-on, detection of other worlds and ships is limited to 10LY. It would be just like having a battle inside a sandstorm.

3. Tournament event with teams from each country competing to find out who is the reigning VGAP country. Knockout competition starting with 8 countries in the quarter-finals, 4 in the semi-finals and then 2 in the finals.
KM2 may be a good idea. I think last time I used the Tantalas machine, but no one found it. (and I did make it hard to find). That setup may work good with the Machines of Yore addon.

I think the sandstorm concept may not be a bad idea either... but 10LY is to restricting IMOP. I wouldn't do less than 100LY from a ship.

Tourney..... Unless it can be done on a weekend.... ][ell No!!! :hatepc:
Hawkeye,

It's setup, where is everyone?

Starbase+ is the Starbase add-on. It's by Dan & Dave.

Are you referring to the Transporter add-on?

The docs are posted on the Strategy page under Host Add-on Docs.

Same goes for the Jupiter question I saw posted somewhere else earlier.
