LT40 test game has been started

Only players who have signed up and confirmed participation are included. The map is visible in the test game but not in actual LT40. For the actual game we will use a script to make sure that the players are on a single continent and there are only small islands.

Port is 5040.

Joining the game is possible until tomorrow.

Please test stuff. Especially that it's not possible to get techs by conquering. Getting techs by stealing should be allowed.

The actual LT40 should start tomorrow. There is a slight possibility that the admins are not available to start the game but in that case you will be notified about it on the forum.

Penalty when changing tech only 10%? Was this by choice?

Also, just checking, there is no specific "tech steal" probability? "Transfer success" only deals with treaty tech transfers, correct?

Re: LT40 test game has been started

Yeah, the nations will be checked once the actual game begins. They are not updated automatically and now they should be with the first value seen on the sign up list.

It's a hard limit but maybe better to have it this way for this game. Almost the only way to make sure someone doesn't eat everyone. This is the biggest difference between LT39 and LT40. Taking half of the cities in the game is still possible but should be really hard.

The spies are too powerful for the early game. Stealing/trading techs is not just that comfortable but it's there as an option. It's a step away from the concept of having no tech trading at all. Let's see how this works.

Re: LT40 test game has been started

Someone could try attacking my cities and steal tech. My cities are around 188,73 and most have no defenses. Try establishing embassy first to see if I have any techs you don't. A horse should be enough to take empty cities.

Cant test this locally since the server now has a "special patch" to allow stealing techs with spies/diplos while stealing by conquering is (or should not be) possible.
