March 31, 2007: New Mega GameWe're starting another mega game. This one tests a new join feature and a new map style. It's called N-Space, and is an open beta game for 250 players - we based the size on the number of people who signed up on the request list.
Features of this game:
- The economy will be in effect.
- The game will run for 35 turns, ticking daily at 10pm CDT.
- It will use the "classic" victory conditions . . . number of worlds controlled.
- The map for N-Space is less randomized than most of the past megas. You can expect to have 4-6 enemy homeworlds surrounding your world, and most of them will be within 300 units. (Some will be in the 300-350 range.) Gaps in the starfield are smaller and less common.
On Tuesday, if there are any slots still open, we'll open up joins to everyone who has completed a solo.
The first tick will take place on Wednesday, April 4 at 10pm CDT (UTC-5).
