Title: MP Addicts profiles!
Post by: t_ras on November 11, 2012, 11:45:51 AM
Here, you addicts should publish your profiles, so you can contact each other for games, and also to check in on someone if there are problems.

I promise not to pass your names to the cops... :salute:

User: Earthmichael
MPing since: Forever (Really 1980 or so with Peter Langson's Empire on UNIX)
Plying level: Expert
Owns: SMAC\SMAX
Expectable turn rate: 1-2 per day, except when traveling
Prefered faction: Depends upon map, but in general, University
Mail: michael # @ # montgo # . # us
PBEM: Yes, lots
IP: No
Notes: I particularly like 2 faction verses 2 faction  one-on-one games.  To me, they seem much richer than playing a single faction, they do not add that much to the playing time, and I am MUCH more likely to get a game to conclusion with just a single other player than if there are 3 other players playing the same 4 factions.

IP: No.
Notes: Interested in having fun and having some roleplay, I more or less just want to play as a faction would, not competitively trying to outright kill my opponents.

Notes: I've been playing SMAC probably since before I could read, though I've never made a serious study of it. And, while I am not old, I'm not precisely young either! SMAX is new and, in some ways, uncomfortable for me. What is the point of all these technologies that seem to have randomly inserted themselves in my tech tree!
Also, I seem to have the gift of gab. Sorry about that!

Prefered faction: Aki Zeta Bong
Mail: martin. # wagner. # webmail # /at/ # gmail # . # com
PBEM: Yes
IP: Yes
Notes:
Bought SMAC when it was new, however had no time back then, but now our recent business went broke and I had plenty of time since to rediscover some of the old games. I did not install any patch yet, however, if a game is found where I can join in, I'll do whatever required. Win10 here.

As a builder, I prefer Aki, however as I understood it some of you will choose Chang and try to overrun me right form the start :) so ideal choice may depend from map size, I'd prefer huge.

Pbem is ok for me, and I'm ready for IP sessions with rapid pace (however, with occasional breaks to fetch coke from the fridge without time penalties running up^^. I sit in Austria, Europe, sandwitched between Germany and Italy, Central European Time Zone (Eastern Coast Time +6 hours, Pacific Coast Time +9 hours), however, I worked for a Sillicon Valley stuff for several years, thus being used to work U.S. time or any time around the world and the clock with no problem. I'd just follow your wishes concerning playing times.

I also got MOO2 and Conquest of the New World running on an old XP machine, the latter of which I years ago Pbem'ed as well - was great fun, if you like to, we can also play CNW :)

Hmm... I found that people have trouble with finding partners for their games as of late. I am glad a thread such as this exists. As for me, I don't browse these forums too often, but will receive an e-mail if PMed, so that's the best way to contact me.

I don't mind people inviting me to their games, that's how I got in the last three or so.
