If someone wants to play, but doesn't want to be the Empire or the Rebel, I will gladly give up the Privateer spot and take the Empire, just to get one more person in the game. Of course I know where you are, because I've already played the first turn, but as the Empire I would be staying away from the Pirate anyway.
Noob question... Could someone please confirm which shiplist we're using in this game? I don't see anything in the game setup info and want to make sure my evil plotting, er... I mean technical calculations, factor in the correct ship info.
Trying to clear the cobwebs since I haven't played in over a year and I have to figure out Orbiter at the same time.
Glad I asked... I must have the SFB4 or AQ8 shiplist loaded in those game slots because my STFs have 5600 KT of cargo capacity. Probably would have been ID'd as a cheater and had my ships scattered all over the Echo Quadrant.
I understand that Logain is catching up but for the rest of us, we all started with 6 freighters stuffed with colonists and we have the clans add on but only 3 of us have 6 planets and another 3 only have one? Some interesting opening strategies going on I guess.
