    Sorry, I was too busy plotting the demise of you upstarts. :viking:

    Some basic mods (like music, faction colors, heraldry, etc.) are a simple matter of changing the version number from 1.9 to 2.0. It really depends. Anything not up to date we won't use. And like I said, all the mods we do use are quality of life mods that improve, but preserve the vanilla experience.

    Only problem with that is the game tells who controls what. I do like the idea of some friendly competition, though. Unfortunately, we won't really know how things will go until we start because player spawn locations are random.

    I do have one idea that will help keep things from escalating too quickly; I suggest we hold off on making any alliances until either the first AI faction makes one or the first Crisis happens. That should keep things from turning immediately into a galactic war. And of course, the fight for supremacy is strictly optional and people can tap out of the war whenever. Whoever wins gets to name the galactic alliance that everyone else joins for the final victory condition.

    Anyone with the fastest/most stable internet should host. Mine is 100mb down, 10mb up, and very reliable. In terms of game times, I was thinking Fridays and/or Saturdays unless majority suggest otherwise. Those days are best for me at this point.

    I wasn't planning on doing it day of the new patch. I figure it was best to give people maybe 5-7 days after the patch to learn what has changed and make sure any bugs have been ironed out.

    Sounds good. Like I said in the first post, game times will be posted in advance and players are welcome to come and go as they please. The AI tends to do strange things to player's economy when it is in control, but its relatively competent in managing your faction if you miss a session. Rules will be in place to avoid exploiting a player if they are offline.

    The really important thing is that we are posting regular play sessions. That will help ensure we actually finish this and will give people time to plan their week in advance.

    Your player name, yes.

    Have to see when most people are available before we can settle on a time. For everyone else, if you haven't already please post your availability. We are leaning for Saturday so far.

    While I would like to participate, I'm not sure I can due to the time difference and I don't feel like committing if I know I'm gonna miss most of it.

    We're easily pacified with tribute of Tim Horton's coffee, Rye and Donuts. We're bribe-able?

    Every option is on the table to keep the hickey sticks from breaking out.

    I'm going to assume that was intended as hockey sticks. However, we have a kind of potato chips called hickory sticks...so I'm choosing to apply hickory sticks to that statement as it's funnier for me.

    I was thinking he meant applicable fake hickeys stickers.

    That typo is so perfect, I'm not even going to correct it.

    What day do we want to start? Saturdays and Fridays are good for me. Should we start in March to give people time to try the new features?

    No, everyone should start off completely unprepared for the new features. It will be hilarious, and it will be egalitarian because none of us know what we're doing.

    Looking at you, metagamers.
