If we have at least 3 or so to randomly use, then it would be nice. I remember that RCWorld had something similar (maps) in their tournament (Civil Wars or something like that?) many years ago (2004/2005)
BM,
Are you asking me to whip up a few maps for this?
If yes, then when final map parameters are made,
then I would be happy to whip up some.

Is there anyway we can commence this prior to the whole thing kicking off? Be great to be able to get started on that when one has the odd free hour.
For now you can play around with the current selection page. It should be very similar.

Do we have 16 players that are interested in this tournament?

Keep selling it guys, you've almost got me interested :)

I'm just not sure about the whole PHost thing...what starts off as a quick tourny game could end up draining more brain then a full normal game. And Lord knows I can't afford to have any more of my brain drained...

To be honest, phost games are really not that different from THost from the players point of view. Yeah, you have some strange ships and some strange abilities, but I never found it that hard to adjust.

One seriously nice thing about phost is:
www.phost.de
Everything about phost is there.

There are some mechanical differences between host & phost,
but from my limited perspective, they are logical.

Technically that is a shiplist and is available in THost and PHost.

But you are correct. You can play a Phost game pritty much just like a Thost game. (You don't need to use the extra/new stuff, just like you don't need to use an addon's features).

2 basic things to remember when switching:
1. The battles/Sims are slightly different, but the again you always to plan for the worst scenario. don't you?
2. The fuel usage is not always what your client predicts. This makes it little more difficult with strategies where you need to move to a planet and arrive fuel less, but it's still doable.

Other that these 2 basic issues, you can play Phost games and THost games the same.

I'll have to agree. The documentation is great.

I like the idea of a tournament, random draw as to who plays who at each juncture, we can set fighter based games as opposed to torp based games and throw the Priv's and Crystals out of the entire tournament. Keep the map small and the resources high. No kill race or Q, if you drop out whoever gets to your territory first gets the goods, spoils of war. I've seen it happen too many times a guy beats up on his opponent just to have the guy quit and loose everything to the computer.
