Yep, still here, just even busier than expected. Full update should come today, if it doesn't, as long as you're doing diceless upgrades/building/developing you'll be fine to post new actions for Thursday.


Edit: Knock knock, anyone home? Actions are due tomorrow and only axis has posted :\

But you were dead a thousand times. Hopeless encounters successfully won. A man long dead, grafted to machines your builders did not understand. You follow the path, fitting into an infinite pattern. Yours to manipulate, to create and rebuild.

@Thadius Once again, please try to keep questions to the Meta Thread.

No, people aren't getting two turns, Me2005 went away for a week and allowed us to post multiple actions as he'd miss the monday turn. My personal schedule caused me to miss this Thursday's turn so I stated that the turn was "Delayed."

The hop between tuesday information posting and thursday deadline was a little much despite the amount of time between them, I'd give it a bit for people to get their actions in or possibly PM the offending parties after another day or two.

And another messed up week due to the Memorial Day weekend. Sorry about that; I'll continue to be lenient with deadlines. Actions due Thursday or 2x by Monday. I'll try to update both days regardless.

Waiting for results of last round and map update.

Why is all information pertaining to Strait Raider beyond his current reasearch unknown?

I don't think he really joined the game. He did not provide any information on his system or a location

I put that up there half as a joke. If he wants in, he didn't give any information about how he's in other than researching 'hufflepuff,' which I've determined to be a very high-level item. A fantastical space-faring race would be welcomed though (one that used wizzard-power to ply the stars).

Well, and here the first thing that came up on my google search was the wizardry school. I'd need to figure out the cost for a pokemon version and get clarification from Strait.

Hufflepuff is actually a house in hogwarts. But yeah that would take a long time.

The only hufflepuff I know about is the Hogwarts Hufflepuff.

So, I've redrawn my spreadsheet, and I'm wondering if I'd meet resistance to switching to it over the current one. It's easier for me to use (and for me to use to report back to you), the rules for getting AP make more sense and are less likely to make you loose AP when other players develop (should curb kingmaker situations, which are allowed in the current set). The trick? It adds upkeep for large fleets.

Under the new setup, this is the AP everyone would get:

Hufer                          3.7 <- Has a huge fleet
Axis48                        3.4
Komrade                    5.8
Holy Thunder             5.7
Tadius Faran              5.4
The Error                   5.7
Commander Jackson  7.0

To go into some more detail; it allows for trade improvements and limits the effect of non-AP-producing tech on your AP value (right now I think something totally random actually gives you more AP, just like industrial upgrades). It also makes systems way easier to figure out - 1 AP/level and there's no level limit. I'll reimburse or use all the AP you've spent upgrading systems if you accept the upgrade.

On my end, it makes everything a simple value (Each upgrade is just +1 to that tech, which corresponds to your level in that tech) rather than the decimal value per level based on research trees that it is now; and it combines all of your AP bonuses (which none of you have used) into one place. It is also nice that you shouldn't significantly drop AP unless you build a huge fleet or loose all your planets or something - systems have less effect than they did. Wondering what to do with the decimals? I'll probably round to nearest (everyone has 6 but Hufer and Axis who have 4 each).

If it'd make you feel better, I'll drop the overhead costs, but that doesn't do much except for Hufer (UK 1.63) and Commander Jackson (UK .88), the two highest upkeep holders. Frankly, I like the upkeep - it deters you guys from building up huge FS stores until you've got a better system base.
