Hazelnut Galaxy [Batched Ticks] Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page



A new batch of Nuts is arriving to CS, and this time it's Hazelnuts!

Our second Batched Ticks Galaxy is set to start on September 19, and we are using this thread to prepare it. For those who are new to this format, here is a brief overview:
» Everyday, 10 fast turns are processed, and players cannot login while they are getting done;
» Then, the galaxy opens for login until the next batch;
» This means that we can play this galaxy with one login per day, and also that the good use of Governors and Admirals is highly advised.

The galaxy is configured as follows:

[Batches and Duration]
» 10 turns are processed every day, between 17:02 and 17:20 (2 minutes for each tick)
» Full duration of the game is set for 500 turns (50 days)

[Settings]
» Moderate number of planets per player (a ratio of 3 systems per seat)
» Normal multipliers (research, corruption, etc.)
» Stars are relatively distant from each other (Sector size = 325), and have 4 or 5 planets
» Planets are average in size and quality
» Non-configurable average HQ, and two juicies
» 7 colony ships
» 12 civ trait points

Who will master the settings and the batches, and win the Nut?



I have already PM'd Erwin, asking him to set a password and seal the batches from login, and we can begin the sign up process here and now! Smile

Hi aragon ! Smile

Those times are quoted in CET..

But note that at those times, you cannot log in to the game (i.e. you cannot see those ticks unfold).. so you don't need to be online at 17:02pm CET.. And it shouldn't be any great disadvantage if you cannot be online at that time.

Of course, there are slight exceptions - like being able to declare war at the last minute, changing your ship directions at the last minute, or setting your research at the last minute.. but those shouldn't lead to major disadvantages.

The Hazelnut Galaxy is now open for sign up!

I have PM'd Xeelee and xmer with the password (tingling already knows it).

Am looking forward to see more people joining this second ever opportunity to enjoy a CS game in full, with one login per day (the playfield is fully leveled in terms of activity). To join, add your name to the sign up list.

I for one am getting ready to crack some nuts. Wink

Yes, the game will be launching its first batch by tomorrow at 17h CET, and meanwhile I will be present to PM the password to anyone still signing up.

So arnoldrimmer, please add your name to the list and check your PM Inbox for the password.

I think that my governors will manage to do something really stupid that will result, once again, in me getting my nuts cracked.

Oh well it will be a fun game anyway.

GL everyone.
