    Today or tomorrow. Start thinking (if you haven't already, which I somehow find unlikely) in general terms about what kind of society you want. I'm still hammering at the rules, trying to get them finely tuned, everything else is done.

      Let the plotting commence! Yay!

      It's probably way too late to be making suggestions, but a planet with a really elliptical orbit, like a cometary orbit, might be cool.

        I need your help!
        Everything's done, but alot of the stuff is done in a spreadsheet. I always figured I'd put it in a chart like the one Micha had for those AHENES units he ended up not using---but I foolishly never looked at the code until just now, and it's insane. There's got to be some way to auto generate it. Anyone?

          You could do it in a graphics format, with multiple layers / vectors it would be easy to update. Although I guess that's not easier if you aren't familiar with using a graphics program.

            I'm not familiar with graphics programs, but that does give me an idea that might work. Sorry folks, this might take longer if what I'm about to try doesn't work.

                  If you´re using Excel or OpenOffice, there´s an option "export to html". The resulting code could be easily copy-pasted into poly. (Or even better, upload the html and link to it)

                    I wish I could offer help, but I'm way out of my league here. Good luck!

                      If the updates are rather simple I might be willing to do it in a graphics program for you.

                        Actually, just go to "save as" and chose "html document" instead of whatever is default. Of course you still need the table for yourself, since html won´t calculate anything. It´s just needed so that everyone too lazy to get openoffice ( http://www.openoffice.org/ FREEWARE ) will be able to view it.

                          If you guys need ideas...always check CFC, theres a whole bunch of good ideas that have failed either from a lazy mod or not enough players.

                          I want to join something, since I cant mod anything.

                            you should check out the Solar System NES thread, now is the prime time to get yourself a custom made empire-in-the-making.

                              You know, I'd tried CFC but every NES I joined died within three turns. Poly has fewer choices, since there are fewer people, but at least the NESes last more than a week. Plus it's cool to NES with the same people, you get to know them all a bit.

                              I pulled the Gnome NES from CFC, it seemed like a fun idea. You could jump in there, too.
