    Agree stockpile exploit. Don't like crawler upgrades but if everybody wants it I'm ok. What is interceptors on auto or hyper-forming?

    Can I join if Kody doesn't show up? Prefer to pick Hive in that case.

    Interceptors on auto is when they are automated, they'll attack targets that the human player could not SEE.

    Hyperforming is the exploit which allows a former to move and terraform in the same turn.

    And I'd prefer Geo to Kody, as he's less likely to PWN us all

    But Kody WILL show up. He has to!

    Anybody heard of a seven person PBEM? I mean the only one AI left is certainly going to be PWND reeeaaal soon anyway.

    You guys give me too much credit, this is only the third PBEM I'm trying to participate :humble:

    Edit:

    Already the preferences just in case...

    Map size - Standard
    Ocean - 30-50% with standard, 50-70% with large map
    Erosion - lots
    Life - average
    Clouds - average
    Difficulty - Transcend
    Transcend - Yes
    Diplomatic - Yes
    Economic - Yes
    Cooperative - No
    Do or Die - Yes
    Flexible start - Yes
    Tech stag - No
    Spoils of war - No
    Blind research - No
    Intense riv - No
    No survey - Yes
    No scatter - Yes
    No rnd events - No
    Time Warp - No
    Iron man - No
    Rand person - no
    Rand social - no

    [email protected]xx (without xx's)

    Btw, I noticed that nobody says anything about victory by conquest, and it is not in the preferences post. Is it automatically disallowed in this PBEM?

    Btw, in that case, and if Kody happens to show up after all, and a seventh player is allowed, I just might try the Spartans then...

    GeoModder if the others agree I won't mind 7 players. Or if you want I'll be willing to go for a two person team with you.

    No cooperative victory hey? Is it because I'm in this game?

    And I'd prefer Geo to Kody, as he's less likely to PWN us all.
    And you guys really haven't gotten me figured out yet. When playing freeciv with a friend, after I had massacred the AIs I gave donated all but one bases rather than fight him. I don't really go for solo victories against human players.

    No I just thought that it may add to the dynamic when you pact with somebody and not knowing when he will turn his back on you (and perhaps backstab you even).

    Thanks for the offer Kody, I'll await the votes of the other participants before deciding, but if no seventh player is wanted, I like to give it a try (mini DG? )

    Sounds to me nobody opposes it. You and Kody still need to decide who is Spartan and who is Hive I think?

    Kody has first choice IMO, but if he leaves it to me, I'll prefer the Hive (I'm starting as Spartans in another PBEM, that's why).

    Btw,
    stockpile bug: ok to use.
    Edited.

    I'll sent a password to Barinthus.

    Very cool

    IC :

    CEO Jamski of the Jamskites put 100ecs in his pocket and carefully guided his escape pod onto the surface of Planet. His followers laid back on luxurious upholsted couches, and prepared to build an economically free society on the surface of this new world - even at the cost of that world's natural resorces and beauty. Better clean, than green

    Such beautiful planet ... Lady Hong watched as the escape pod approaches fast to the surface. Her heart aches when she thinks about what the planet will suffer from its various intruders, especially a certain greedy and cold-hearted one ...

    *Deacon Frankychan bows*

    OOC: Brothers and sisters, You will have to forgive me in my ignorance as this will be the VERY FIRST time your shepherd has participated in a PBEM (functioning PBEM anyway). I hope my children are not TOO upset if I make an error.

    IC: Deacon Frankychan stares through the viewport at the fast approaching planet. Lord, protect us in this endeavor. Thumbing his pewter cross, he addresses the assembled....

    "Brothers and sisters, we begin a new life under God on this alien world. God has given us this second opportunity to right past wrongs....to forgive us for the secularization that plagued Earth. We turned from God and He punished us. Let us not squander this blessing. Praise be to God!"

    Praise be to Him..........and no one better stand in my way.

    Commissioner Hercules looked out with wonder and anticipation as the pod moved closer to the planet's surface. Can all that hope, that idealism, that initiated this whole expedition, nurture new life and democracy on this second chance for humanity in this new beginning. He hoped so and would do his best to ensure that outcome.

    Meanwhile the citizens in Commissioner Hercule's Pod look out on the rapidly approaching planet surface. Yes with fear and intrepidation but also promise of a better life.

    Okay I guess I'll take Spartans.

    __________________________________________________ __

    Survival, the oldest of human instincts and what drove the human race away from our dying planet to seek a new life on an alien world.

    The battle on the ship had been successful the Spartans had secured their place on the new planet, but at the loss of many loyal men and women. However, the chaos on the ship was just the beginning a simple precursor for the battle that will occur on the planet. The struggle on the planet surface would be against the alien world itself and the worst enemy would be ourselves.

    Six other escape pods also spiralled downwards towards the planet carrying the seeds of factions that would ultimately strive for dominance. Each of these had their own ideology, but stripped away of pretences and their need for justification of their actions they would be just the same as us. Wanting to survive.

    As the planet approached the men and women on the escape pod were grim, they knew and understood what was expected of them. There was something else, a repressed glimmer as they watched the viewscreen. Was it hope?

    As I looked around I noticed Santiago watching me from a corner. She stared at me meeting my gaze head on and smiled. I shuddered, suddenly ill at ease with my surroundings and concentrated on the viewscreen for the remainder of the planetfall.
