No Frills With Normal Resources

Post#1 » Fri Jan 06, 2006 4:33 pm

How about an occasional no frills VGAP game with normal minerals and money and a few no frills games with rare minerals and money? Most universes are so rich that after a relatively short time you can build Golems, Biocides, and Gorbies almost as easily as you can build Diplomacies, Resolutes, or D7’s.

Also for these games, no add-ons please. I look forward to playing some games with the add-ons when my skill level improves and when I am finished with some of my current games. However, for now the game is complex enough without the add-ons. Custom starmaps are good but please let us know in the game description if the universe has an unusual map such as say a spiral galaxy.

Thanks for running this host. The various types of games you offer keeps things interesting and fun.

How about the map wrap add-on?

Any add-on changes the balance of the game in somebody’s favor. However, a wrap around map can make it so you can spread out the races on the map and not have anyone stuck in the middle with everybody gunning for them. With a wrapped map everybody is surrounded.

This is not a request for a specific game for me to play in right now. I can’t start another game at this time. It just seems that there are very few games with normal resources and no add-ons.

I can make a next to nothing, bare bones, no natives on any planets game for ya... But you might be playing by yourself :)

And I usually don't put any add-on's with No Frills. That defeats the purpose.

I'll build up No Frills #9 tonight after work.
Best Regards,

Joe

No natives might be a little too lean. Don’t start any games for me just yet. I need to finish one of the games I am in first.

Exactly. I want to join almost every new game I hear about but alas one only has so much time and all too little of it can be spent in the Echo Cluster.

THat is why I limit myself to five games, six max (I'm currently maxxed out). I'm in two No Frill games, two PHost games, an Alien game and a THost game.

Why should a No Frills, Plain Jane or Vanilla game have any add-ons?
