SMAX game. 7 players with standard faction from SMAC
« on: December 10, 2016, 01:13:05 PM »
RULE:
no cloudbase,
no empath guild.
copter limit to max 4 attack

Yitzi patch 3.5d
-----------------------------------------------

Hi,
I'm newbie in this forum. I just PBEM at SMAX with my brother at transcendent level. We do not use any patch, but for this game I'm open to install some.

I would like to play with standard SMAC factions and 7 players. Would be nice at least 1 turn for day (but no problem if you can't play on weekend, it's just a game  ;) ).

Other rules, blind research, the biggest map and the other standard rules that I read on this forum for online games.

We may select random factions, or if you prefer and all agree, choose your favourite faction.
If we can't reach 7 players, my brother would be happy to join us (he just follow the facebook page, not the forum).

With my brother we use a dropbox shared folder for sharing the PBEM save, how do you do here?

I'm newbie, so I'm open to suggest.  :)

Usual practice these days is to post the save in the Turn Tracking Thread and/or email it directly to the next player.

You'll have much better luck -both starting a game and actually playing it to conclusion- with less players...

I would be glad to participate
However, I suggest using Yitzi's patch as it is commonly used by players here

Hi there,

I understand you want a full house, but I'm afraid you will never get to finish a 7-player game. In fact, you will never reach the mid game. Trust me on that one, people will have delays and/or drop out. Each new player adds to that exponentially. The standard game is 4-player.

You can count me in for something like that.

We can play with the "accellerate start" (the option that give us some cities, technologies and one random secret project at beginning). Maybe we can reduce the map size too.

Ok for the yitzi patch.

Well, I forgot to mention that SMAC players are not maybe the most dynamic online community these days, so you can have problems gathering just 4. Is your brother in?

Good ol' Mart.

Now we can wait until you don't find 7 players, czar, or you realize that it's just too many, and we're good to go.

I understand you want a full house and I had the same exact idea when I began my MP gaming, but it's all for the better to start with 4 players.

Yeah, when you hit BU with a nuke, he'd just keep deleting your turn posts until you come to your senses and reload.
