Legion_prime is interested in a game.

 

He has never played a MP game before, but he has plenty of time.

 

Who is interested?

 

Welcome, Legion_prime!

I can take on another PBEM. Let him choose faction and conditions.

Okay, I'll start up a multiplayer game and email you once I'm up and running with the file :)

 

Thanks!

Legion_prime, could you register for the SMAC ladder. It is a one click process.

Legion_prime, I do not mind starting with your faction choice (Caretakers) versus me playing University and whatever game setup options you choose, but I would prefer if a CMN sets up the game rather than playing from the save you sent me.

 

Vyeh, can we get a CMN for this game, please ?

I posted a notice in the CMN forum. I'm sure one will be along.

Legion_prime, please post here your preferences for game setup options (map size, cloud cover, native life etc.) so the CMN can setup the game with those conditions. You can see the kind of information listed in the first post of this thread for example:

For the purposes of the CMN, we would also want to know:

 

(1) AI factions: is it alright if the CMN chose 5 factions at random (since one of you is Caretaker, the Usurper to balance things out would be a natural choice)?

 

(2) Do you want the standard complement of units or do you want some additional units to accelerate the beginning of the game (usually an additional scout, an additional colony pod and an non reversible engineered former droid)?

 

(3) We usually post some rules to exclude some common exploits and to cover some situations players want (for example, some players like to prohibit 'copters from attacking bases because they don't want the game to become a 'copter only fest with some drop units to occupy bases). If neither of you care, we would give you a standard rules set.

5 random factions would be fine, and I'm not fussed which :)

Additional units to accelerate the start of the game would also be nice

As for extra rules, No Planet Busters, No Atrocities, and no Copters. If that's alright?

Thanks :D

I've seen those rules before. It will be up to zsozso whether he likes those rules or not. (You are aware that using nerve gas against the Caretakers is not an atrocity, right?)

 

Since he is playing against a progenitor faction, he may feel that he needs the nuclear option.:)

 

Give a day for me to find a CMN for this game. Setup is straightforward; however, the CMN might want to take a little time to give zsozso and you a fun game (by choosing interesting AI's and giving both of you good starting positions).

The rules are fine with me. I never liked Planet Busters, never really needed them. No atrocities should keep the planet free of massive eco-damage which I like too. I'll miss the copters, though :( But it is fine, I understand the general aversion against them.

vyeh seems to have left the board, is there anybody willing to CMN this game, please ?

Share this post

Yeah, count me in!

Should be interesting!

 

Playing against Caretakers and University? Uh! I think I shall take the Pirates; it should allow me some flexibility (pun intended) to deal with the variety of this game.

Nothing to say about the rules or the setting.

Hi there,

 

I would like to join the game. Would it be possible?

i think you all are subscribed to this thread so i will use this one for the setup of the game till someone will merge it with this one.

 

Looking at this thread and this thread, I see that we have the following players interested in a game:

zsozso

Legion_prime

eclipse4449

Vishniac

Asky

Eldramatico

 

..

 

bdanv has already agreed to CMN the game. While I am delighted that bdanv is getting a lot of practice, I do hope he will consider possibly splitting the players (Asky has been complaining about the slow pace of his game)..

 

vyeh is suggesting a split because he thinks you'll have an awful turn rate in a game with 6 human players. i tend to agree with him, but also, i'm in a similar game and we have had a decent speed for the first 50 turns or so.

so, you can go ahead with human 6 players or you can have 2 games with 3 players. my proposal (based on the experience level) will be:

 

zsozso vs Eldramatico vs eclipse4449

Legion_prime vs Asky vs Vishniac

 

let me know what you think of it.

Legion_prime, I need your time zone (GMT) so i can establish the turn order.

@eclipse4449, Asky, Eldramatico: please choose your factions.

Yes, turn-rate could be pretty slow for 6 players, so that is something to consider, so I lean toward the split. OTOH, I do not mind playing 6-player either if others prefer that.

Splitting is OK for me as long as there are not just 3 humans but also 4 AIs to play a 7-faction game. (OCC being something different).

Being on the split with Legion Prime, I'll take his parameters for the game.

you don't have to stick with my split or to the '2 games of 3 players' scheme, but please keep in mind that Asky is looking for a fast turning game (the one that he's playing is stalled for the moment).

we can even setup 2 games of 4 players if someone is willing to take on 2 games

 

***EDIT***

 

also, please note that eclipse4449 is starting another game here
