Do you people want to play a space nation building game? This will involve a simple layout, with economics and a good battle system (not just power comparison). Then research technologies for super weapons, or super civil power.

Sounds like it could be cool, but I'd need more information. Is this going to play like NeoAz?(however that is going to play out, I'm still a little in the dark)

I'll have to work out the details on the economics.

Basically, i will make a map, in which u will explore to find new systems and build colonies.

Colonies will have population. At each benchmark of population you get to have more cities. Each city is allowed one improvement. Improvements increase production, research, money and other stuff.

You'll build fleets. Fleets guard or attack.

In battles, you decide what units sit in the front, main, rear and support. Then you fire your weapons. If the weapon has longer range you get to decide to skip firing at the enemy's front units and perhaps target their main.
Both sides decides on targets, with attacker deciding first to give defender a slight advantage. Then damage is calculated simlutaneously. I will make a C++ calculator on my own to make this run smoothly.

Since i have a scanner you might be able to look at my awful hand drawn pictures. (hey, im not in arts) I might make these for major events.

You can trade resources (there will be quite a few to do different things) and you can trade technology.

Technology is for making special units, super weapons and civil bonuses. Not for improving your base units. I know that's kinda wierd, but that's how i'm going to do it.

Super weapons could be like an "Overshock Beam" that you attach to a spherical ship. Then you slip that ship in using your special cloaking technology and blast the beam at a planet. And then before it overloads and implodes on itself, maybe it could cut a swath of land from Florida to Ontario killing over 20 million people.

I'll be working on my calculator in the mean time. I'll wait til enough people want to play, i'd say like 3-4 minimum players.

I'll give it a shot. But I've never done anything like this before, so if I don't like it I may just get out of it in the middle.

You should give me your aim name if you want to do turns more efficiently. As well as set up a daily appointment time.

Otherwise, just be very clear in your PMs to me. Unless you don't mind having all your secret projects declared in the forum .

What you'll have to decide each turn are about 4 things.

Building -> If you'll build more ships and buildings at your colonies

Colonize -> Whether you'll move citizens around or land colonists on unoccupied worlds, or terraform unoccupied worlds

Diplomacy -> Trading resources (or technology), or changing your treaty status with someone (peace, alliance, war, surrender, demand)

War -> Moving units around your colonists, and sending units into other colonies
at the end of each turn, all things move simultaneously, if two forces are not allied/at peace then battle ensues, you can opt to retreat right off the bat or not to fight as some sign of good faith

--------------

Battle is the most complicated part so here how it goes.

Support - Rear - Main - Front - - - Front - Main - Rear - Support

So the first half is one force, the other half is the other force. These are the possible positions your ships can be in.

WHen you fire your weapons, some only go as far as the enemy's front, so you have no choice in what you hit. Other weapons let you decide what area. The factor that determines this is called "range".

YOur ships have "health". Suffering damage exceeding their health will destroy them. When an area is hit with enough damage to destroy ships, ships will take damage according to ratio of the differnt types of ships. So if you have 70% fighters and 30% cruisers, 70% of the damage goes to the fighters.

Some ships will inherently take less damage than usual. For example, the fighter will take less damage despite the fact you hot 1000 points worth of damage. This is because they can "evade" shots. It'll reduce damage by a certain percentage.

Each turn you decide what to shoot and where. Attacker decides first, giving defender an advantage. This is done openly in the forum. In an attempt to speed this process so that battles take one (real life) day, I'll either need to have a volunteer to help while i'm not around or i'll try to make a user-friendly C++ calculator and distribute it to you so that you guys can calculate what should happen each turn in a couple seconds. Of course, if i'm around i'll calculate the battle out asap.

So...
"Positions" - Where your ship is, determines what it might get hit by
"Range" - Where your weapon can shoot
"Evade" - Some ships can reduce damage with an "evade" rating
"Health" - How much damage a ship can take

Note:
You'll lose lots of units in battles. So don't send everything at once, like you would in a game like Utopia. Cuz if you lose, then you have nothing left.
Planetary populations are expected to rise to the billions. It can also be expected to be reduced from that significantly using your super tech weapons (if you're evil enough to do so).

Okay, while i'm forming up the game, how bout you just post some basic stuff.

Nation name (perhaps other names of stuff)
Your race...
As for this, im letting you make up your own stuff. Description and all that stuff. Or you can just ask me to make one up for you.

Mind you can't say, "uh, and we have +50000 gold mining" or something. But you can name a bonus off for me and i'll try to work it in.

As for game development, im open to your suggestions in types of resources(and purpose for it), and technology. Also if you want to make ideas for gameplay stuff, thats cool too.

I dont know, Zak and Mason became so inactive...

Oh well, it was a turn away from ending anyway. I'll just keep it a secret what happens, unless you want me to write something up to end it off the way i wanted.

Oh and i was wondering, would you like to play a nation building game as proposed, or an RPG game where you control a single ship travelling through space. You are out there to colonize another planet, leaving the turmoil of Earth as it was on the brink of nuclear war. You'd have to manage a ship, and decide how to do things.

Ok, I'll sign in, and this tiem I've got a reliable computer, so i wont have any excuse to drop off like in CT.

and I'd like more a nation building game than a rpg one.

Nation : dunno yet
Race : human.
Particularity : the nation as much less member than a normal one, but they live in very close harmony with their Machines (think of the matrix, but the humans are not unwillignly enslaved), so it kind of make up for the small demography and insignificant reproduction rate.

I think mixed (more nation building, but otherwise mostly even) would be good. Maybe you play the polotician in charge of this for the roleplay part, and yet your still building the nation as you do this?(except we only die if we tell you we want out punk... you could somehow work in a capturing or blowing up of a flagship, right?)

Nation:Canzar
Race:Human, mainly Canadians
Bonus:Faster ships/less firepower to compensate. Better *slightly* terra-forming tech, weakened *equally* weapons tech.
Details:Mission is to get a new earth-like planet terra-formed far from the other nations that escaped. They have prepped their ship for many many years of flight through deep-space.

I don't have AIM, but i do have MSN:
alphawolf_999@hotmail.com


If the bonuses are unfair to you Ultra, you can tweak them however you like, but i think that faster ships with less fire power and better terra-forming with less weapons is fair, wouldn't it be?
