We've been going for three years now, but things have been pretty slow in the orders department lately.

Still alive and kicking! It'll take more than a few hundred Phong ships to get rid of me.

I'm alive (or maybe I'm a computer programme, and do not fulfil the conventional criteria for being 'alive'?).

When exactly will the 3 year mark be, and... can I get a free gift of some rads to celebrate it? I seem to have an unending financial black hole, and it's called my budget. Very Happy

For me, it will take more than my entire merc fleet (~80% of my total combat ships) being unusable to get rid of me. Razz

Would we get more people to join, and would it be smaller in map size, initial empire size, or just by cramming more AIs in the same space?

Hmmm, a major decision.

I would personally be up for it, but I could definately see folks comming back after an absence and being all hrumphy that we changed the game.

If we do change, shotgun a system lordship.

Also, next time lets go the 'only one Cue Cappa' route Razz

Well, we'd have a smaller empire, rather than 1/3rd the map.
Either team mode, or low bonus AIs so we have to work hard to hold the line instead of just expanding rapidly Smile

I'd also want to work out a system in which we don't have to distinguish between system lords and military.

Just to check, it would be SEIV again, right?

sounds fine, But I'd still want the right to control planets and accrue an income besides from contracts.

=====================

I was thinking about it actually, and a PBC is by its very nature an economy Sim. as such one can very easily implement economic models in how you organises a PBC. This one has been using a late-feudal, lord and gentleman (eg. system lord and corporation/mercenary) system most similar to England circa. 1600-1700.

With this analogy it is easy to come up with new economic models for a new PBC by nicking them from history. this evening I will whack up a model based on France ~1200 In which every player is a system-lord in some form. Unfortunately trying to implement the modern capitalist system would be wildly complex. It would basically be based on communal ownership of planets but private ownership of facilities Shocked ...

I don't mind starting over. Another reorg of the current game would be okay with me, too.

Definitely SE4. I did a lot of work on the automation, and SE5 would be painful to process.

I've been quite busy with university studies, but I'm still here. The work load has eased up a bit, so I can participate meaningfully again. I'm surprised my assets haven't been divvied up amongst the other SLs, honestly.

I would also prefer having separate military and civilian players. I like the Dune-ish system we have in PBC IV. I think there should be a few more restrictions on System Lords, like limited numbers of cargo or civilian ships, but overall it was fun to play.

I would prefer going military this time around.

one turn a week? I think even my schedule could handle that. Count me in on PBC5. Also, I'll see what I can do about reactivating my PBC4 corp...
