    PBEM DD06A: Going Home Parameters

    Storyline: Your home world is dying due to an uncontrolled plague. You are 1 of 4 leaders of a planetary colonization expedition with the balance of your colonists in stasis. While the team is reviewing the planetary survey, your ship is mortally damaged by a Cosmic String (think Titanic versus Iceberg). You and your shipmates quickly begin the procedures to separate the ship into the 4 (6) landing pods and to begin your descent to your new home world. Just as you are completing the separation check-list the mother ships’ computer informs you that a chemical has been discovered on the planet that will cure the plague back home. You now have the chance to be the savior to the billons left behind on your home world. All you need to do is tame this new world and construct a space ship to return home.

    Game started - Save sent to Cyc

    Take a look around on turn 1 and make sure everything looks ok. It's better to fix it on turn 1 than on turn 50

    Great start. Great map. Everything looks good and it should be a great game (both of them). Both games have the same 4 teams - all from the breadbasket of the world.

    Barbs will be an issue, tho. :ninja::lol:

    remake20 just noticed that the fog of war is still there.

    Was it there for you Cyc?

    If not, do you want to go ahead or have me remove it and resend turn 1?

    Ok, starting over with full map revealed

    Yes, there are a lot of goody huts and if you use them wisely you'll be out of the AA before 1000 BC

    I forgot to mention, my explorer came across the Einstein clan in a goody hut. They promptly gave him maps of the area. :rolleyes:

    Ignore that file - I sent you the DD06 save - DD06A is will be played soon and sent - Sorry for the confusion

    Just help out the old guys (like me), it would help if files were labeled GAME-PLAYER-YEAR - like DD06-DenyD-3800BC.sav

    Thanks

    I just received the save. It is for year 3850bc. The last save I sent to remake20 was the year 3950bc. What happened to year 3900bc? I realize we just took ten days off from this game, but we shouldn't have lost a turn. I will go back now and find out if the save was just labeled wrong. If the game DOES say 3850bc, I might be gone longer....

    EDIT:Ok, this save is for Persia. It was probably labeled wrong and goes to the DD06 game. Right?

    No problem. I label mine (usually) Cyc - Game, turn, year. That way they are easy to trace and eliminate confusion on the fly.

    I'll eject this save from my inbox.

    This upcoming year I'm not going to be able to play the saves as much, so I'm going to have to drop out, cause I'm afraid that I'll slow this game down to the point that it never finishes. If you still want me I stay in.

    I'm sorry to lose you.

    Why don't you post in the replacement players thread and stay with the game until you get a substitute players. That will keep the game moving and still let you escape once a replacement is found.
