    Sounds interesting for a non-GOTM "Comparison Game", which is what we ran over at "Poly" to develop the Early Landing concepts. Just start a thread, post the starting rules and a map, including what points players should stop and post for comparison. Shouldn't be too hard to get a half dozen players...

    I think 1 AD launches are done with "zoom-to-home-city"-chaining, so that you complete all the parts and launch on that turn.

    A comparison game is a good idea. I won't have time, as at the moment I don't even have time to play the rest of my GOTM68 (Saturday night, I can, I hope). However, I just went to Poly, and tried to log in (I can log in, but its been too long & they won't let me do most member activity, even downloads, until they reply to an e-mail I had to send them :mad: ). I see what they (e.g., Solo & his amazing guide) were doing in 2003-04. Quite impressive. Are you called "Elephant" on that site?

    Wow, learn something new every day. Never heard of it, but as soon as I started to read it, I have an idea what it is, and am surprised I've not learned of it before!! Thank you. The fast post-1AD landing I did in a GOTM (the GOTM was not at Diety, though) was a 0020 launch, with an intentionally long flight (something like landing in the 0080's). I seem to recall that GOTM was what I was playing on the Sept 11 :cry: attacks, and the game was ruined after that, fun-wise.
