Looking at the almost dead beginner galaxies, I'm thinking there aren't any newcomers anyway, so might as well try something radically different.

I thought I could throw the resourcers some challenge.. And I've set it to have 22 planets for a 10 player game. The way we're running this, I don't expect more player than that anymore anyway.

Go with the set up you posted on 03 06 2015 but with 80/80/80 on the 2 planets in each system and a sector size of 250.

Hmm.. I feel like going with that - despite the fact that most of the time we'd be struggling with resources - but I guess that's the point? I understand Confused and raf thinks that'll essentially make the game a no-go really, but I'd still like to give it a shot. Even though I think Confused and raf's suggestion is more sound.

I adjusted the commodities on the HQ lower so that players can't actually build ships that fast.

I think we can go 250 size too, but I'll get rid of the tall galaxy and make it flatter because the space would be just too far, and it's really hard to get to any resources or planets.

But right now, it seems we have a 2-2 vote for this. Would appreciate if anyone can step in with some suggestions and feedback. I am sick of this.

My thoughts on making it harder on the resource player is that it will be a fun challenge to actually have to factor in purchasing some minerals at some stage.

Besides if there are only 4 players per team and one of us on each team who know how to effectively handle minerals and cash, it will make for some interesting strategic decisions.

I think it is worth the time to set it up provided that all players actually play as one drop-out will kill it for that team.

well im just saying its hard on the resourcers, but first off, its me and Multi so you got the best of the best, and i wouldnt really categorize this as a training galaxy, bldrnr is the least experienced on the sign up list and he's got some games under his belt, including one TG, and has quite some experience in other games in the same genre, so i think we'll be ok Smile

In case you guys would like to consider something less extreme, but still very different from the usual setup, I have created the ATGalaxy as a reference:
» a big and deep galaxy, with a great lot of space;
» two rows for the river;
» very fast tech pace (low tech cost, super science HQ);
» 2 planets per system (very good planets, with a great amount of space);

Still a very steep challenge for the miners, coming from the distances needed to be covered to find the right planets, and the very high overall productive ability.

Check it all up in the upcoming gals...

..

My advice would still be for something more simple, but these ATG settings would at least preserve some level of coherence, specially for new players like Cyrus and rnr (2nd TG), and others that may come to join when the galaxy opens for sign up.

Now we are getting somewhere. and having tingling reach his 4th rank is a good thing too. I will still need a few more galaxies to reach 3rd rank myself so this will help me too. Smile

Setting the home world pop at only 5 actually helps the resourcer's as it gives us more time to get organized before needing to start supplying anything.
