"Remember Me?" PBEM - Turn Tracking Thread (TTT)

SMAC v5.0, difficulty level: Transcend

 

Game setup thread is here

Commlink:No code has to be inserted here.

 

Game preferences:

No code has to be inserted here.

 

Rules: :cmn:

  1. A player may not restart a turn without good reason. The player should specify the reason in the game thread if he was not able to avoid reloading the turn. (Obviously, if a player has suffered some sort of crash during a turn, such a reload is unavoidable)
  2. Stockpiling in Build Queues is allowed. Also, please note, that if you leave the queue empty after the facility or secret project you get additional energy. You can leave queue empty and use this additional energy.
  3. A player is not permitted to establish contact with another faction prior to having met them in-game.
  4. It is not allowed to mind control with standard probe teams units or bases of any faction that runs a +3 or higher SE Probe rating.
  5. If a player performs a probe team action other than to infiltrate against another player with whom (s)he is in a truce, treaty or pact, they must inform the probed player what it was they did and what they stole/sabotaged. They must also choose the 'declare vendetta/cancel pact' option when they perform the action.
  6. A player is not permitted to make more than one social engineering change per line, per turn. For instance, one is not permitted to start the turn in wealth, switch to power mid-turn for the extra disbanded minerals, and then switch back to wealth that same turn, getting the refund.
  7. A player is not permitted to use the 'demand withdrawal' feature against another player, leaving the AI the decision of whether to withdraw or not.
  8. A player may not accept a bribe from another player's AI during council sessions.
  9. A player may not use the F4 screen when infiltrated to change an opponent's workers to specialists.
  10. Council notification - immediate broadcast to all players(Post in the thread and e-mail to all immediately by player who has called elections, citing candidates and votes. After each player's turn, post in the thread the running totals).
  11. If a player declares vendetta upon another player, either directly or indirectly, they must not accept a pending diplomatic agreement between the two factions in the same turn.
  12. A player may not make air drops using the right click "air drop to" function, when it is not possible to do so with the "i" button, ie. after already having moved or made a drop.
  13. A player may not use build queue manipulation or other loopholes to hurry production at a cost that would be lower than directly hurrying the item that one intends to build.
  14. A player may not use build queue manipulation or other loopholes to build something you could not directly add to the build queue.
  15. A player may not upgrade a particular type of unit using the design workshop, and then attack with that unit in the same turn.

 

Notes:

  1. Darsnan will have copies of your passwords (for safety).
  2. only the humans have flexible starting location.
  3. the 'Alternate Gender Leaderheads' (by Buster Uncle) in the picture above are just a tease. in this game the graphics are SMAC flavour.

Advices:

  1. if this is your first PBEM, then please take a look again at this post. take care when typing your password. you have only three chances to type it right and you don't want that nasty reload message to be sent to all the players in the game..
  2. there is a high chance to get slowed down in the first turns because some turns may end up in someone spam folder, so please
    save the addresses in the commlink section of the post above in your contacts agenda. hmm.. maybe not all of them ;)
  3. please keep a copy of all the turns you receive and send (you never know when you'll need them). there's a high chance that
    the option 'save a copy of the sent messages...' is already activated on your email account, so, there is no need to keep them
    in the game folder of your computer. just make sure you don't delete them. this could be very important!

 

Please feel free to post questions/comments in this thread. You can contact me by email (see commlink section above) or by IM (see my profile)

I will need a volunteer to send me 'in copy' the turns. I want to check out the evolution of the AIs and also, to make sure from time to time that every thing works fine.

 

the game is launched. good luck everybody! :D

CMN is the "moderator" of the game. The guy/gal who set up the scenario and holds all the passwords in case somebody has to drop out of the game or something.

2101 -> Styx

 

PS - I think I am about to lose a colony in the first turn wrapup phase.

on the custom images: just making some advertising for Buster Uncle's work. :)

CMN question: Arcainite's answer is correct.

in PBEM this is a feature/bug and cannot be changed in the scenario.

you have agreed not to use them till you meet in-game. see rule #3! :cmn:

once you meet, you will be able to trade the comlinks and call for elections (you can't do that now) .

My brother plays WoW. What server are you on?

 

I went ahead and put down my second base. I see no harm in telling anybody. It's too bad I can't begin tech research until 2110 though. 2104 -> PeaceKeepers (Styx)

Second base down. Also, I think you can start your research by ctrl+R or something can't you? Or do Believers just not start getting research points until then?
