Any interest in an "Old School" type game?

Want a VGA Planets game with custom settings? Have an idea for a tournament? Post it here.

Your sites great Havok, and nice mix to select from.

The one thing i miss when playing the Empire with a hyper moscow, is that in Armins games it was a torper..... :shock: and a hell of a lot of fun for me, and a pain in the a$$ for my enemies :lol:

If the game fills up, I send you a six pack
You can deliver it and we'll drink them together.

I still gotta setup the pool hall party one of these days this fall.

Who's interested?
If you listed a street address instead of a PO box
you would have that beer
They do not deliver beer to PO boxes
Does this look infected to you?

Havok, I'll take the last race available
Does not matter to me
I'm experienced with every race except the Borg
almost 20 years, & never played the Borg

Always wondered why no one every suggested a 3 on 3 team game
3 borg players vs the Fed, Romulan & Klingons
Call it "Resistance is Futile?"

Gilgamesh, did we not play each other in the 1st Civil War over on RC World? I used to play as 2Beers over there.

Alas Havok, after many pc formats and rebuilds i have nothing left from Armins treasure trove :cry:

Vertigo, you must try the Borg at least twice. Assimilation and taxing them on the way out, leaves the Feds 150% tax rate and the Lizards hiss mission for dead. Hyping out to new territories and finding that not long after you have the equivalent of a second homeworld is awesome.

Cubes rule, and the ability to chunnel minerals around, chunnel your fleet to the battle front, and chunnel out of webs is divine.

The down side.... if like me you become addicted to them, you find in games where you play another race that the frustration of no assimilation becomes overwhelming :lol:

If I didn't have 4 Klingon games on the go already I'd be happy to oblige. But it always bothers me to see my favourite race not getting the respect they deserve... :(

well..looks like someone grabbed them..

and i enjoy playing the faschist too...cloakers, poppers, and pillaging make them a fun race :twisted:

my only problem with them is the small cargo space for the torpers...
especially if your fighting the lizards :x

That's why I'd like to try a Tlist game. There are some drawbacks with the Klingon fleet - small gas tanks, small cargo, lighter hulls that don't stay in a fight for long. Tlist does most of the thinks I always thought should be tweaked with the Klingon shiplist. Definitely on my "must try this" list.

Meantime though, I'm quite happy to play them "as is" 8)

I've emailed the Privateers and AT has also sent him a message for being the last player out.

If I don't see a turn from Snid by this evening, I'm going to start the game anyway... It doesn't take 5 days to do the first turn.

I could handle a game without the Privateer threat.

If he's going to take this long t play his 1st *.TRN, it looks like he doesn't have much interest in playing anyway, so maybe we should turn the race over to Hennef, or just lay with no pirates in the game.... :?:
