Hi!
anyone interested in a speed galaxy one of these days? Perhaps something without HS, if I recall correctly it tends to get op in those settings?

Welcome Back. It has been a while. We now have the War Only type galaxies, Some think they are more fair because you can not have allies.

I have not made up my mind as of yet.

Enjoy your game and Welcome back.

If you would like to play a speed galaxy ... post your name here. When the list reaches 6 players Multiglow or tingling can set it up for you. Please let them know what settings you would like.

Speed galaxies are actually viable with only 2 players.

Ok ... PM Multiglow as to what settings you want and he will post it for you. I've never set up or played a speed galaxy or I would do it.

I think speed galaxies only take 2 days to complete. Maybe as our population picks up here at CS we should run a speed galaxy every Saturday and Sunday ? Also I think they should be run as war-only galaxies so players aren't sharing resources and galaxy maps ?

Yeah WO setting actually makes sense in speed galaxies. There isn't much time to conduct diplo anyway.

Not sure about weekly schedule, the speed galaxy in spite of it's name is a 2x5 hour undertaking and quite demanding.

I think it's always two days, the speed galaxy setting. Double production etc.

I'm up for it anytime, can you set it up?

My only constraint is that it's 17h+ CET during weekdays..

Argh.. I forgot to even create the galaxy first.. Rusty indeed I am..

We were talking about 3 hrs x 3 days.. = 9 hrs = 540 mins..

Should we do 2 mins for the first 120 turns, then 3 mins for the next 100 turns? So altogether 220 turns?

So
Day 1 = 90 turns x 2 mins = 180 mins
Day 2 = 30 turns x 2 mins +
40 turns x 3 mins = 180 mins
Day 3 = 60 turns x 3 mins = 180 mins
TOTAL = 220 turns in 540 mins

We were thinking of:

Day 1 = 1830 - 2130 CET 11 Dec
Day 2 = 1830 - 2130 CET 12 Dec
Day 3 = 1830 - 2130 CET 13 Dec

That's equivalent to

1.30-4.30am for me at GMT+8 - but heck.. once in a while I guess I can do that.. I have to work during the day anyway..
12.30-3.30pm for New York time.. I guess not for anyone who has to work during the day

Maybe throw in more colony ships for a faster start?

I remembered now, there is a speed galaxy turn schedule file. It's possible to set everything.

Sure.. Erm.. 10 colony ships?

Should be about 384 planets in the galaxy.. So should be plenty of uncolonised planets to go about with too..

I totally can't remember how to write that speed galaxy file lol.. Let me try find it too

EDIT: Found one from an old post

0 60 // turn 0..59: 1 min (0:00)
60 120 // turn 60..104: 2 min (1:00)
105 1800 // 30 min break at turn 105 (2:30)
106 120 // turn 106..135: 2 min (3:00)
135 900 // 15 min break at turn 135 (4:00) *something wrong with this line I think
136 120 // turn 136..156: 2 min (4:15)
157 68400 // end of day 1 (5:00)
158 120 // turn 158..232: 2 min (0:00)
233 1800 // 30 min break at turn 233 (2:30)
234 120 // turn 234..254: 2 min (3:00)
255 900 // 15 min break at turn 255 (4:00)
256 120 // turn 256..278: 2 min (4:15)
278 1000000 // end of game at turn 278 (5:00)

Let's see how to modify this now..

I'm making a google spreadsheet tool to help with this file:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1...BjBU/edit#gid=0

Given that we can modify timetable, we're not limited to starts at the same time. So we can do more turns today, so US/EA/AUS won't have it running in ungodly or working hours.
