    Post Momentum-Hybrid-Builder Challenge Game#1

    This is game #1 of the Momentum-Hybrid-Builder Challenge. This game is a SMAC game on Thinker level. It is full of people with a little multiplayer experience or no multiplayer experience with a lot of Smac experience. The teams should be a good balance of experience and the factions look to be even. The players are:

    1. Gaians --Basil -- Hybrid #1 [email protected]

    2. Hive -- Garth Vadar -- Momentum #1
    [email protected]

    3. University -- Aardvark -- Builder #1
    [email protected]

    4. Morgan -- Enigma -- Hybrid #2
    hendrikv@ho[email protected]

    5. Spartans -- Qualicide -- Momentum #2
    [email protected]

    6. Peacekeepers -- Joer -- Builder #2
    [email protected]

    Please remember to contact ONLY your partner. You do not have any one elses comm frequency. You must set your OWN passwords and make the pacts yourself. Have fun everyone, I hope this is a good map, I didn't see it... Tig

    "Lady Basil"?? Is there any way we can change that? (Either "Lady" or "Basil"?)

    MY 2201 sent to Garth Vadar.

    Here's my correct email:
    [email protected]
    I have no idea where .la is

    I presume we can talk to our partner as if we'd popped a pod with their comm link in it?

    Turn to UoP

    There is a Customize faction option in the Network menu.

    I corrected the spelling and am now to be referred to as Executor Vader.

    We would like to announce the joyous founding of The Hive. I would also like to announce the execution of our pilot that landed us in such lousy terrain.

    Ummm.. ask Garth how to change things.. I just used your board ID as your name to keep things less confusing. I didn't bother changing genders even though quite a few of them were wrong in both games, including my own

    Okay guys, Aardvark doens't seem to be playing. He sent that email out to all of us a couple days ago, but he never replied to my email inquiry or passed on the turn (unless you all are just being bad about posting the turn notices).

    So... Garth, would YOU send ME the turn, I'll play it and pass it on so y'all can get this game moving again. I will try to find a substitute player by the time it gets back to that spot in the game order.

    Sorry guys...Tig

    if the emails are correct Aardvark has passed the turn onto Enigma. Could someone verify this? if so, it looks like this game is finally moving with the original players.

    Aardvark, if you're reeading this could you please post a note in this topic every time you send off a turn?

    So where are we here?
    Is this game still alive?

    Aardvark sent his first turn off, right?
    Where is it stuck now?

    Wow, are we slow. Any chance we could speed this up?

    My turn is finally done, yes. Had a little trouble there in the beginning, moving into my new house and all, but I am now online and ready to play. Turn was sent.

    Internist Isiac, "Professor, we will crash land safely, where shall we attempt to aim our landing pod?"
    "Incredible, this planet can support a body of water so large...Oh, pardon me isiac. There by that river will be fine..." responded the Professor.

    According to what I've heard and received in email, I believe that Enigma played the turn and passed it on to the wrong person.. we need you to shoot it over to Qualicide now instead of who you sent it to... please do so ASAP, Enigma... thx..Tig

    I recieved the turn from Johnnyboy a while ago but it was the turn meant for the UoP, I did not play it or send any turns.

    I notified Tig and Johnny that the wrong turn was sent... I have not yet recieved any turns intended for Morgan.

    I have not recieved any turns from Aardvark...

    Just a quick note:
    Johnny boy (email name) == Aardvark (bboard name).
    Does that clear up or create more confusion?

    Sorry about the confusion guys. I could swear I saw Johnny boy in the second slot for turns at one point or another... I sent turn 1 to Qualiciide.

    I am sure I saw Johnny boy on the turn listings.. before the UoP.

    It was probably the right turn that was sent to me the first time, I never actually opened it. However I did ask him about the turn and the responses only added to the confusion.

    Well glad to see we are off anyway.

    I got a zipped .txt file from Qual. I tried loading both the .txt file and the same file renamed as .sav, but neither were accepted by the game.

    Qual, please resend.
    -joer.

    (Curiously enough, the diplomatic talk does show up, even muddled, in the .txt file when loaded in an editor. Good thing I decided to write seperate emails beforehand anyways. )

    Resending didn't help. Grrrr!

    It might be something with the fact that it's a MAC. All other save files I have received had the .sav ending, this one had .txt. Renaming it didn't help, Alpha Centauri simply didn't understand it.

    Never mind my complaining. It did work, after all.

    However, it did not help against my awful starting position. We aren't playing on an arid planet, are we?

    Turn sent to Basil.

    MY 2102 to Garth. (some hours ago actually).

    I have tentatively named my leader "Lady Morgaine" (wanted the name to fit the picture reasonably well).

    2 -> Qualiciide

    The fact that this map is rather unbalanced since each person has a drastically different start location gives more strength to the true nature of the debate. If every hybrid needed a perfect start to do well then that mean that strategy is not as practical.

    However if Qualiciide AND Garth start in the jungle..

    im going to reiterate this again, when you send the turn to the next player, please send the e-mail adresses with it, it makes it much easyer to send it out

    how would that make it unfair enigma?

    To Basil.

    Wow, how did you find that out, Enigma? Or does that 'if' indicate you really don't know?

    Unfair is a hard word. However, totally unbalanced and favoring a particular group describes the situation well.
    I always thought the jungle has, the way it's defined, a very unbalancing effect.

    But, hey, can't blame somebody for having luck on their side. So, enough with the whining...;-)

    Qual: I just make an shortcut entry for the next person I need to send it to in my address book. I don't think the whole address list is needed (though I can forward it, if Basil thinks it's neccessary).
