#1 Re: LT41 » LT41 to start February 7th. Teamless, islands and more traditional » 28.01.2018 08:16:23

There are currently 15 players who signed up and only 3 has confirmed. I guess most players are busy with LT39 and LT40. I suggest we do not start until at least 20 players confirm.

I think it is a good idea but 80 shields is perhaps too low. How about 100?

#3 Re: LT39 » LT39 has started » 23.11.2017 13:19:53

Forgot to check forum for several days and missed the deadline to confirm sad cya next game then...

#4 Re: LT39 » Less defense? » 11.11.2017 09:56:20

Yes defense is very high in cities on hills with defensive buildings. But it gives weak nations a chance to survive longer and perhaps help their team win. If taking cities is easier, stronger nations would kill weaker nations faster and the outcome of the game will be more obvious and games will last shorter. Nevertheless I would not object if the defense bonus of the defensive buildings are reduced a bit. For example, city wall could give %75 bonus instead of %100 and so on.

#6 Re: LT39 » LT39 has been postponed few weeks » 20.10.2017 19:29:45

Lets wait until at least 30 players sign in

#7 Re: LT39 » City growth too fast? » 20.10.2017 19:28:14

I think city growth is normal. I suggest we keep it as is.

#8 Re: LT39 » The speed of the science? » 03.10.2017 20:28:38

I agree with Lord_P. Could be more fun with slow science. I suggest %150.

#9 Re: LT39 » Restrictinfra ON or OFF ? » 19.08.2017 09:01:25

I prefer restrictinfa OFF and tired attack ON just because those are more realistic. Restrictinf OFF makes conquests faster which some might like and some might not.

About the final score tab, the population numbers do not match the numbers displayed in my client for my nation.
For instance I have had a population of 176 890 000 at the end of the game and not 2 141 000 (I don't really understand what that number refers to).

hmm it likely shows total number of city workers or city sizes x 1000. the in game demographics population shows something else. did you likely have a total of 2141 workers?

I go out of town. I delegate to Wieder for 2-3 turns. I ll be back on Sunday.

#13 Re: LT38 » Nukes and battleships » 06.05.2017 07:46:01

Battleships have 18 attack/defense, 30 hp and 2 fp. Against a 20 hp defender with 1 fp (e.g. rifle, alpine, marine, partisan, fanatic) they essentially have 18x2x1.5=54 attack vs 4-5 defense. They only cost x3 of those defenders (150 vs 50 shields). A v-rifle in city on hill with coastal and size 9 or above has 4x1.5x1.5x1.5x1.5x2=40.5 defense vs a v-battleships 18x1.5x1.5x2=81 attack.  Even a nuke with 99 attack with 10 hp vs a non-veteran battleship with 18x2x3=108 defense can fail!

They are just too strong. Instead of inccreasing the cost, I suggest decreasing its fp from 2 to 1.

Edit: Oh just found out from help that  "If a ship is attacking a land unit on land the firepower of both is set to 1." Still battleships are too strong against other sea units...I still suggest lowering their fp to 1 for all units.

#14 Re: LT38 » More possible changes for LT38 » 01.04.2017 18:05:41

I support all these changes except I think hill cities should keep the 2 food.

#15 Re: LT37 » Quick connect to the server » 31.01.2017 20:35:44

Welcome to LT. I hope you enjoy it.

Yes you can set server, port and username in the game / local options / server options. And then you have to "game / save options". But password cant be saved.

My PC is off now so I cant check the exact names of the options.

#16 Re: LT37 » LT37 has started » 20.01.2017 10:23:08

Had been a looong break. Thanks wieder!

#17 Re: LT37 » New Player with Same IP » 20.01.2017 10:01:34

I see no problem with it since it was announced early enough.

#18 Re: LT37 » LT37 test game with proposed "final map" was started » 19.01.2017 10:58:17

I like the challenge. Citymindist is 4? Maybe it can be reduced further to 3? It should definitely not be 5.

#19 Re: LT37 » Another test game has been started » 09.01.2017 18:09:01

Maho welcome back! Glad you are back.

Click confirm on LT37 page and Wieder will add you to the next test game. Maybe he can add you to the current one?

#20 Re: LT37 » When LT37 will start? » 03.01.2017 15:04:32

Shall we start the confirmation period? Wieder are you there?

#21 Re: LT37 » The test game has been restarted 19th Dec » 24.12.2016 00:41:02

I think the island size was actually small but acceptable, not really big at all. The total map was large due to 50+ players. I think the mapsize is set by tiles per player so if there are less players the map will be smaller.

I also support a time limit per turn. I am sure there is a setting for that. I remember we had used it in an earlier LT game.

#22 Re: LT37 » Boosting Fundamentalism and making it relevant in the early game » 10.12.2016 14:50:41

It has been very long since players joined. I suggest you start confirmations so that active players are known.

#23 Re: LT37 » The server settings for LT37 (may require tweaking) » 02.12.2016 19:00:58

I am ok with these settings.

The number of tiles per player will be same with previous game?

I prefer settlers costing 2 pop.

I am ok with either islands or continents game.

#24 Re: LT37 » Winning conditions for LT37, suggestions? » 02.12.2016 18:56:32

I'd prefer alliance based victory. I think having at least 5 alliances makes the game more dynamic so I suggest the max number of players to win as round(N/5) where N is the number of players.

#25 Re: LT37 » When LT37 will start? » 02.12.2016 18:52:54

Wieder glad you're back! (once again) Obviously nothing happens here without you smile
