I'm sure there is an optimum number of planets per player that along with settings make the game most playable. Right now in galaxy creation we have a suggested number of players that is drawn from the number of systems and galaxy density. The problem is that if more or less then the suggested number of players join, then the number of planets per person is way off.
I suggest that every time a player joins the galaxy that X number of planets and systems are spawned. The galaxy size would grow each time a player joins. But it would probably be easier to allow players to sign up and have an empty galaxy until a certain sign-up cut-off point after which the galaxy is spawned according to how many players have joined and what number of planets per player you've chosen. To make it easier for the program, we should allow the program to choose how many systems it wants to spawn in order to reach the chosen number of planets per player and still have a random number of planets in the systems. This number of planets/systems would reflect the suggested average planets per player you've chosen in the galaxy creation window. This way if only 2 players join or if 20 players join, the game is still very playable.
Another thing that would be good and allow the HQ systems to have the same number of planets while all other systems can have a random number of planets would be to have a separate line in the galaxy creation window to select how many planets you want in the home system which would be created separately.

funny Story Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

My father used to tell a story about his old mule. He lived on a 40 acre farm down in the bootheel of Missouri during the 30s. His stepfather had bought a piece of property on the other side of the road. So every morning he would hook up Popcorn, the mule, and go across the road to plow. He would stop the mule at the end of the drive and would look both ways. Then would drive the mule across the road with the plow, and would go to work.

That fall when the corn was ready to pick, he would go out and hook the mule to the wagon, and then would start doing other things. Will one day while he was doing those other things, the mule walked out to the end of the driveway and looked both ways before he crossed the road and entered the cornfield.

My father stepdad walked up to my dad, and in his southern slang said, "that there is one smart Ass."

I just felt like we needed a little bit of comedy here, to relieve the tension.

I'm going to ask Erwin or Tingling to remove the forum category "CS Community awards" and change it to Galaxy sign-up. Presently we have no way to predict how many players will join each galaxy so there is no reference to use for adjusting how many planets/systems per player are spawned. If players sign up ahead of the galaxy post then we won't end up with a galaxy that has so many planets that the biggest % of the game is all about colonizing rather then conquest.

Erwin said that if not enough players or too many players join a galaxy that he can reshuffle to resize the galaxy to match the number of players. So when you join a galaxy don't assume it's going to be the same size when the game starts.
