I can't believe the game's made it this far already. We're approaching the turn the original Continent reached before it was stopped - hopefully I don't die when uni starts in a couple of weeks XD
Anyway, here is a comprehensive list of the current players in Neo Continent.
Maps will be uploaded later on today (it's 3.42pm here now) and PMs will be out shortly after that.
It is now Turn 25.
Original went until turn 25, since the turn in progress was 26. So we're a turn away from being as long as the original.
Oh, I just assumed you mean turns rather than days.
The answer is 76 days. Since we technically started Nov.29th
Yea there was like, an 11 day period between the last turn you posted and when you ended the game.
I think i'm doing pretty well but since I can't check eveybody else I might be in last place! (o.O)
No enemys and no allies yet, how long does it take for you guys to expand your city or build another one?
So about 3 turns to fully establish a city?
Well you could post how you're doing (such as your current size) and see if anyone says they're doing better or words.
But odds are you aren't doing better than any of the original players (Ugilick, Cool, Chris and myself), or Puff. So at the very best you're currently in 6th place out of nine.
better or worse*
It's always been this way, but I completely forgot about it - carts (for horse-and-carts) are built in workshops. I know some people with 2 workshops have built 50+ carts in a turn, so like I said I completely forgot about the rule.
So since this rule hasn't really been paid any attention up until now, you can now build 2 carts per artisan. Still a max of 5 artisans working per workshop, but carts are now cheaper to build (this is partly to make it fairer for those who haven't built carts yet but mostly because 1 at per cart is a bit expensive).
No one now, last turn was sent in about an hour ago. Turn 25 is over. Turn 26 will probably be up tomorrow (it's 4.50pm here now) but possibly tonight.
It'd be the same either way really lol.
Tomorrow for me.
So today at the time of this post.
That's today for me Cool.
My apologies, we're still waiting on Ugi (didn't realise). This turn will end tomorrow at 3pm my time (that's 11pm Thursday CYS time) or when Ugi hands in his turn, whichever comes first.
And Fireplay (also didn't realise!).
Lol I guess Fireplay and Ugilick aren't the important players :P
Haha, nah everyone's an important player. Sometimes when I get turn directions I'll put them into your control panels straight away, but sometimes when I'm in a rush or I just want to do it later I read the PM to answer any questions there might be and then copy the directions across later. So basically what happened was I thought Fire and Ugi had PMed me their turns, but when I went to check their PMs to copy their directions across I realised that they weren't turn directions.
was a time*
Yeah luckily it's a lot more organised now, I had some people sending me turns in advance (like Turn 17 would be under the Re: NC15 title) or naming their PM the wrong turn (like Turn 15 Directions in response to the NC14 PM) and it was very confusing. Now most of the PMs are all replies to the NCxx PMs, so it's way easier to keep a track of things.
That's not an excuse by the way, just laziness on my part (like not reading the last 50 or so PMs in my inbox to find out which ones were for which turn etc.).
Ugi sent in his turn about an hour ago, so Fire's got 47 hours to send her turn in.
Pretty sure fire's a guy.
My bad. Pink avatar threw me off.
Yeah. The turn ends just under a day from now.
Dump the body in a large body of water, it eliminates most of the evidence and hopefully it won't wash up on shore.
xD :D xD
Why do you think i'm female?
I was lurking in the Survivor thread a while back and saw Cool referring to you as a girl.
I thought I turned mine i already.
Alrighty, Fireplay's sent in her turn. Next turn will start sometime tomorrow (possibly tonight, but it's unlikely as I'm going to see a band play).
Actually, could be later on tonight - it's 12.48pm now, I've decided to go and see that band again (they're playing a daytime show today) and then I'm going back to my place, driving up to my parents' house because of family coming over and doing that while for a while. Chances are I'll be working on it in around ten hours when family leave.
If you're thinking La Dispute then yes. Seeing them on Monday too :D
Poor Fireplay. No one wants to acknowledge him as a man.
I could've swore Fireplay was a girl.
Why did you think he was a girl?
The rule is everyone on the internet is a guy, until they say otherwise.
Did you even read what I wrote?
I thought Fireplay referred to herself as a female at one time. I'm not sure though.
Not to sound biased, but I'm guessing male. Just based on him mentioning starcraft.
I did, during the werewolf mafia. I'm officaly male offline but i have played as a female in several forum/computer games.
It is now Turn 26.
Maps and PMs will be out soon.
Anyone have anything new happen to them?
I met a Barbarian tribe. They don't seem to be hostile though.
Then you should destroy them! Do it for everyone else who was bullied by barbarians!
OR he could try and make an alliance with them so he can destroy all the OTHER barbarian groups in the world.
Why did they run you out of town?
You're not even doing that bad anymore.
I could've swore you said that was the Epping...
Haha no problem.
I still vote you destroy them.
I didn't get a chance for revenge against mine....I fell regret every day.
Well, they seem friendly enough and aren't at war with any other tribes. If I come into contact with you we might be able to work something out...
Also, if you see the Chegam... don't trust em. That's all I can say without getting into a character I don't have anymore haah.
Okay, Turn 26 is now over. AtomicWaste and Zikara now both have a 1 day grace period for turns (for those not familiar with how turns work here: pretty much you have two days from when the turn is announced; once somebody else hands in their turn, the new deadline is two days from when that person sent in their turn (or in your cases, 1 day).
That might be irrelevant soon, though. Uni starts next week, so I'm probably going to slow things down a bit. Turn 27 will be up in the next couple of days at some point, but after that I'm probably going to go with Monday to Thursday my time for turns to be submitted (that's roughly Sunday to Wednesday in America) and then from Thursday to Sunday my time (Wednesday to Saturday yours) I'll implement all the turn directions and get the next turn prepared.
So once Turn 27 is up, you guys will have until 12.00am on Thursday (CYS time) the following week to send in what you want your nation to do.
Actually, make that 2.00am on Thursday (CYS time), I'm pretty certain I've either got a lab or a lecture that goes during the original time.
It is now Turn 27.
As mentioned above, uni starts in the next couple of days so there's now a set deadline for turns. Turn 27 directions need to be sent in by 2.00am Thursday CYS time.
Good I think.
If you're going to tell everyone what I'm doing you could at least spell my city's name right lol.
Probably not for a while man, it's taking me a while to do the turns as it is. Sorry.
So how much longer do you think this game will last? What number of Neo-C # do you think we will reach before it collapes? :)
Would not have a clue. It mostly depends on how much of the world is explored, the smaller your maps, the longer the game will be.
Currently there are a few people exploring but many are content to be isolated. It's a double-edged sword really, like the people who are isolated have the advantage of being able to expand peacefully, whereas those who end up sharing maps with other players will be able to conquer barbarian tribes and other cities, and have a better picture of the other players in the game and will be able to prepare against threats accordingly (whereas isolated players could effectively get eliminated out of nowhere as they would never see it coming).
Once players start interacting the game I'll get a better idea of what turn the game will end. Right now it's anyone's guess haha
I feel so alone in this game :(
Apart from Cool seeing my expansion, I haven't had interaction with anyone.
Probably my fault since I haven't explored since like turn 15. But given the low reward and high risk that comes with exploring, I never felt comfortable doing it. Guess I'll start again.
Also everyone is too quiet.
J8, with about a third of it unexplored.
Why, how big is yours?
Good to hear.
This week has been hectic. I don't know how JJJ manages to still find time for CYS while overloading in an honours degree. Maybe I've just been incredibly lazy for far too long? Either way, I'm finding it tricky to keep up at the moment (especially with French! So many stupid pronunciations!). In regards to NC, the map file is out of date due to it crashing last turn, so that'll take a while to fix, as well as actually doing this turn. I hate to say this but I'm going to temporarily put the game into hiatus. And don't worry - it will start up again! Hopefully soon. But just for these first few weeks I'm going to have to discipline myself into decent study habits.
But yeah, this will definitely continue at some point (the latest possible continuation date would be June 22, though it'll likely be in a couple of weeks depending on how soon I can get this course under control).
Pretty different situations.
Though I am curious if JJJ plans to make another Continent once this one ends. Though to be honest, this game doesn't really have ending conditions. I guess it's just once you and your allies are the last ones left you win?
That would be right! I'm going to say now a maximum of three nations in an end-game alliance though (just in case we end up with everyone going "hey, we're pretty cool just hanging and not attacking each other", as unlikely as that is).
Non-player nations included?
Say me and two others all ally with each other + a computer faction.
Yeah, non-player nations included.
Then they'd just be another one of your cities.
Fair enuf running the game is a big time commitment
Uni's slowed down a lot since I've switched degrees/changed subjects, but NC is still really time-consuming (it doesn't seem like it would be and I don't know how it takes so long but it's about 4-6 hours to get turns done if you factor in answering questions and updating sheets and cropping maps and so on). I'll give it some thought and get back to you. Semester ends near the end of May, the latest NC would possibly be coming back is mid-June, which is when my exams finish.
But yeah, I might start it up again a little early if people are interested. Less importantly, Puff was doing pretty well so I want to give him time to reappear on the forums before continuing NC.
Puff has been gone for 22 days, I don't think we'll be seeing him again.
Oh yeah, I noticed that. Badger is back too apparently. JPlague also came back recently and Trzcina was gone for a while and then came back. Hell, I was one of those lurkers who were gone for a year and then suddenly come back with the confidence to join the forums.
Actually, now that I'm on the topic, I want to thank everyone on the forums. I think I've increased a lot in my maturity and intelligence since I came to this site.
Did he come back to play or something?
Or the second Magus. Although I'm not getting my hopes up yet.
It's end of May.
Though I'm curious how this will work if JJJ decides to start Arc up again anytime soon.
Neo Continent will be starting up again on June 20, two days after my final exam for the semester. It'll run for at least a month, then I'll see how I go with regards to studying next semester.
Just a heads up, I remember one of the big things that contributed to me putting the game on halt was that the most recent version of the world map hadn't been saved and it got thrown a couple of turns behind. I couldn't remember which farms went where so I'll have to do my best to piece together where things should go from each of your individual maps. I'll also have to figure out what the NPCs were planning on doing as I've forgotten some of that too.
After playing Arc, some of you might find ways to exploit the simplistic rules of Neo Continent. I'm expecting that and hoping for it. Ingenuity will be rewarded.
You want us to exploit your game? That's new lol.
Good to hear you got a date decided on.
Obviously if it's ridiculous exploitation it'll be fixed, but being smart enough to bend the rules to your advantage is part of the game. Thinking outside the box won't guarantee a win but it'll definitely make it more likely.
Turn 27 will restart soon. I've forgotten almost all of what we were in the middle of and due to what was happening with uni at the time I stopped halfway through the turn, so apologies if you've lost anything or made an action for nothing. Turn 27 will restart either today or tomorrow. My sleeping pattern is screwed up (went to sleep at 8pm and woke up at 2.30am) so since it's 4.37am now it'll likely be later today. I'll try to recreate the map as best as I can (as you probably remember, Photoshop crashed and I hadn't saved the map for a turn or two. Some of you may have lost a levee or something. I'll try and put farms in place based on how many farm squares it says you have in your CP but no guarantees they'll be in the places you requested (if you requested a place for them).
Anyway. I'll post to start Turn 27 tomorrow. Also, if somebody wishes to take the place of anybody who isn't active anymore, reply to this post. You'll likely be able to take Atomic's spot.
Do you want us to resend our last turn to refresh your memory (and keep the relevant PMs close to the top of your inbox)?
Feel free to, though I'd wait until after Turn 27 restarts just in case there are any changes to your CP. At the moment I'm going through the control panels to try and put everyone back to the start of Turn 27, as some people were halfway through.
I'm still in.
This is probably the main reason I'd be against letting you back in. If Ugi is fine with it I don't mind, as Puff is absent too (meaning two spots to fill). It's up to him.
Fool! You have no right to comment a picture other than your own!
Now I remember how annyoing that guy was.
Fool! Excalibur is an amazing character and you obviously have no taste!
Well all I got to say is, "IT's puzzle time."
Fool! Your anime reference is too obscure and in no way indicates what you are!
It is not obscure to true anime fans.
Fool! I only follow 3 different animes!
What's that one of?
phi brain: kimi no puzzle
Let me guess the three
(Would've said bleach but that anime is over)
Is it sad that I figured out the reference without ever seeing the show?
1. Yeah, I got into Shippuden recently at th esuggestion of a friend. Turns out that in the Japanese series Naruto says "Believe it" once in both seasons.
2. Nope, I've seen a few episodes but I never got into it.
3. Yeah, but isn't that one over too? At least, there was 51 episodes on Hulu and they haven't added any new ones since I started watching it.
3. Yeah it is
So what is the last one. I am guessing you only watch english dub episodes and not subbed.
Deathnote, and I actually watch Japanese with English subbed, the comment was because I watched Naruto on Disney back in the day.
Do you know where I can get new episodes of Soul Eater?
that one is also over with.
Oh, I misinterpereted your last post.
The manga of Soul Eater is still going, though the anime had an original ending, so if you start reading it you'll have to find out where to start from. Then again some people just can't get into manga.
Also One Piece is pretty slow to start, but unlike other long-running shows, it gets better and better as it goes on. It's easily my favourite anime.
I would have to agree with Killa on this one. One piece is slow but around the 50 episode it gets really good quickly. Curently at 173.
Are you aware that you've spent over three days worth of time watching One Piece?
Three days is nothing compared to the grand total of time I've wasted on anime lol.
Three days? ha thats nothing. I probably spent at least 4 months possibly a year on anime in general. I am also not caught up yet. Also I was wrong I am at 198. So 197*20 (no commercials I watch on line) is 3940 hours/24 is 164.167 days/7 is 23.5 weeks so on one piece alone I have spent a third of a year on one piece. So maybe 4 years to anime in general.
Your math is wrong, Ugilick is more right.
197 episodes * 20 minutes per episode = 3940 MINUTES
3940 / 60minutes in an hour = 65.666666 hours
65.666666 / 24 hours in a day = 2.73 days
There is no way you have spent 4 years on anime.
Herp a Derp I actually change it because of my original guess was 4 months to a year but the numbers said almost a year so I change it thanks for that.
If the plan Ugi told you isn't a long term plan, then it's unlikely that it'll affect the game (as Airaffea and Jarumia are pretty far apart on the world map).
This is just from what I remember though (my short term memory for stuff I haven't studied is terrible, as you saw when I thought my religion was the tribe that burned down Celine :P) so for all I know he could have told me a long-term plan and I just forgot it for now. I didn't even remember the plan I remember untill he reminded me :/. If you want, I could PM you what I remember to clear it up, you'd have to know about it if it is what I think it is.
On a side note, if I do get in I'll be glad I forgot to ask to see his CP :P
Agreement would be the better phrasing. Which we would tell October.
PM sent, want me to send it to October too?
Nah, we are clear. You don't remember the important part. All I ask is that you don't share it if you remember.
Well after all that I've decided not to let Bo back into the game.
... kidding haha. You'll take the place of Jason Hicks, leader of Airaffea with the capital city Kunta Kenta. Feel free to change any of those names.
Oh believe me I need to. I'll send it in reply to the CP link when I get it.
I'm still in too! I finally noticed that people posted in this thread xD
Okay - out of Zikara, Fireplay and Playa - do any of you want Puff's old city? He hasn't been active since the 28th of March. I offer it to you guys because your cities are still relatively new.
I'm leaning towards Fireplay having it as so far he has made a few poor decisions regarding his own city so it won't be too much of a disadvantage to everyone else to give him an already built city. It's either this or getting rid of Puff's city altogether. What do you guys think?
I REALLY want it but I couldn't take it in good conscience since I'd consider it an unfair advantage.
From what I've seen your skill level at the game seems roughly on par with Puff's, give or take (it's hard to tell exactly after only a few turns). Out of you, Zikara and Fire you'd be the most suited to take over the city, actually.
Or you could have a horrible disastor happen and have travelers from that city poping up every where.
Why would it? If Obama dies, I doubt they're just gonna say "Oh, looks like it's time to give up my entire livelihood and risk my life traveling to a city that's far away rather than see what this new guy can do" :P
Given that their previous leader made every decision for them, down to what they would do with their life, it's not a huge leap.
We can also just assume the previous leader had no children, and no one was suitable to step up and take over.
We can assume that, but it's a pretty big assumption (especially since one of the three is about to take over, they can just be his child or a suitable villager). Yeah, it would be a large transition, and it might cause a minor migration, nothing major by a long shot.
Well after Alexander the Great died his empire was torn apart by civil war and most people don't enjoy civil war.
He ahd one of the largest empires in the world, so there was way more of a chance of a civil war. A civil war is not going to erupt in one city, Playa -_-
Although, I do take back the statement about a competent person arising seeing as the city will go to another nation so it's irrelevant.
It was more of an example and I don't doubt that two factions would fight each other for a single city. That one city was the base for the entire empire (I assume) and whoever is in control of the city is more or less in control of the empire as well.
it was a completely irrelevant example. There aren't even enough people to fight a civil war (at least, assuming that he had the same size as most in that situation) unless he has a handful of people fighting int he streets.
Funnily enough, i studied this guy (Kai A. Konrad if you want to look him, pretty interesting) who reduced power vacuums down to a science (or an equation to be specific) for a recent debate tournament. Didn't think it would ever apply to CYS
Gangs fight over city blocks. It might not count as a war, but it would be a fight none the less. Likely the city would shift to a military dictatorship anyways.
Gangs only arise when there are enough people to start needlessly killing each other, and there's an actual monetary unit to fight over (I didn't develop currency when I lost so I'm assuming he nobody else has :P). The only scenario in which a gang develops here is when the army goes freelance, which will be avoided unless it goes NPC.
That's why I was thinking "put Fireplay there". He's still learning the reins and won't benefit from the better city until he does. Playa's current city will likely end up as good as Puff's, so moving him across to Puff's city (consequently, he loses the constant population boosts he would usually get since he started late) would put him in the same place as he'd end up anyway.
Let's just say if Fireplay or Playa ended up winning the game, it wouldn't be because of inheriting Puff's city. On the other hand, I could easily just wipe the city (I don't mind either way)?
Fireplay can have it if he wants. I like my city and the NPC all seem to be frinedly.
I like free cities...
Guys, you want a free city. Puff wasn't exactly a bad player, and he was in it almost as long as the rest of us (at least before the mass joining), so he's had some time to develop.
So how is the turn coming along?
It was done yesterday (for me, so about 15 hours ago), I'm just giving Fire a chance to ditch his city and take Puff's. I'll give him another hour or two.
Howabout starting a new thread?
New thread going up for Turn 30.
Alrighty, I'm removing Puff's city from the map now. I'll be sending out PMs soon (no new maps).
Is it possible for me to delete my own post as to not look stupid for not reading the rest of the thread?
It's not possible for you to delete your own post but it's possible for me. Consider it done :)
It is now Turn 27.
As it stands, these are the players (and how long after the last person they have to send their turn in):
Killa_Robot (2 days)
ugilick (2 days)
cool74 (1 day)
chriscane (2 days)
Zikara (2 days)
playa988 (2 days)
Fireplay (2 days)
ThisIsBo (2 days)
WHAT I only have a day?
After the last person to send their turn in. I've made multiple posts about it in the old threads but as it's been a few months I'll refresh everyone's memory:
Starting from when the new turn is announced, everyone will have as long as the person with the most days to send in their turns. Whenever a turn is submitted, this resets and everybody has until the next person with the most days to send in their turn. So put simply, how many days you have is representative of how long you have to send your turn in after everyone else has sent their turns in.
For example, let's say one day after a turn is announced, Killa, Zikara, Bo and Playa have sent their turns in. Because somebody remaining has 2 days to send in their turn, everybody has two days to send in their turn. One day later, Fireplay and Chris send in their turns. Remaining are Cool and Ugi.
Because Ugi has 2 days to send his turn in, Cool also has 2 days to send his turn in. If neither send their turn in during this time, Turn 28 will start after 2 days (4 days since Turn 27 was announced).
If Cool sends his turn in one day after Chris and Fireplay, Ugi will have 2 days to send his turn in from this day, and Turn 28 will start when Ugi sends in his turn or in 2 days (5 days since Turn 27 was announced).
If Ugi sends in his turn one day after Chris and Fireplay, Cool will have 1 day to send his turn in from this day, and Turn 28 will start when Cool sends in his turn or in 1 day (4 days since Turn 27 was announced).
Does that make sense?
Oh Yeah I thought we got a do over because of the month intervale.
7 of 8 turns have been sent in. This turn will end at 4pm Saturday (2am Saturday CYS time) at the latest.
I am waiting for a reply to my message.
Turn 27 is over, all turns have been sent in. It might take a couple of days (or more) for Turn 28 to begin, depending on how long it takes for the back-and-forth between myself and players asking questions takes.
Also - question: I haven't deleted Puff's CP and map yet. Would you guys rather I let the city degenerate slowly as if Puff's just not doing his turns (ie. all population increase goes to farmers, artisans and philosophers do nothing, population becomes big enough for disease to kick in, this lowers morale, people leave city gradually until it eventually dies) or to wipe it immediately?
It'll basically mean anyone who happens to be close to Puff has a chance at moving in and taking over his city. Puff could be near any of you.
Trust me, that region has enough NPCs in that tiny area, just wipe it :P
It wouldn't be run as an NPC, rather as if it has no leader at all. But yeah, duly noted. If a couple of other people agree with you I'll wipe it.
Go ahead and just remove it.
It think it would be fun to have a few NPC citys that are not barbarians.
I'd rather you just wipe it. Also I'm going camping this weekend and won't have internet access until Monday so I thought I should give you a heads up.
My original coment was to assume Nathaniel Stormstryker had died. Letting the city degenerate would effectively make sense. I like that idea.
Yeah, this was my reasoning. Unfortunately, everyone else wants it deleted so that's the way it'll go.
I'll just say this: of the people who were against letting the city degenerate realistically, one was really closeby and would have been able to stage a take-over quite easily.
Puff's city will be deleted next time I update the map (just waiting on a couple of people to finalise their turns).
One of the reasons I was against it is because it's an easy city. A self-sufficient city (let alone a STARTING city) can drastically boost your output, which is way too much of a boost. That's why even if it was for me, I wouldn't want to get that advantage.
Although, techincally it's 3-3 now amongst the players, so it's up to the GM for a tie breaker. If no one else posts their opinion before the next turn, go ahead and do whatever you feel is right. Admittedly, the decay option would be a lot more realistic.
I just want it it to be deleted to make less work for October.
If it's really no difference to him, i'll switch my vote to degenerating the city.
I thought about this too, and that was one of my major concerns. With that said, some people chose a place that was near angry barbarians, some chose an isolated place and some have barbarian allies. Some people are near NPC nations and other players. Some are inland, some are near water. I don't think anyone knew Puff was going to drop out, and if somebody does take the city easily that doesn't mean others can't band together and defeat them.
It's luck of the draw. Taking Puff's city will be an advantage, yes, but only if the captor knows what he or she is doing. Keep in mind the city's army will still fight back, it's just they'll be less effective. If it makes things more fair, I'm going to reduce the medical points of the city from 1000 to 750 - that should onset disease a little quicker.
I agree with uglick.
Okay, Puff's city stays. It has slightly reduced capabilities to deal with disease, meaning it will begin degenerating a little sooner than it would have otherwise. If Puff somehow miraculously returns in the next 10 turns he can have his city back providing nobody else has conquered it in that time.
Just waiting on Fireplay for additional directions. He's got until Saturday 4pm (Saturday 2pm CYS time).
so its the next turn
Not yet. Fireplay missed the deadline so I'm doing the auto-turn thing for him now, then I'll work on Turn 28. Can't remember how long it takes me to do a new turn but I'm guessing it'll be up in the next two hours if I don't get distracted by something else.
I know that in OC, 3J would do all of our turns as we turned them in (it was actually pretty cool to watch him work and IM chat during the work if we forgot anything) rather than waiting until the end. This way, if we were late, then it wouldn't make as much of an impact, and you wouldn't have to do too much in one sitting and just have to do NPCs and disasters and whatnot.
Usually I would do that, but everyone sent their turns within a few hours of each other this time around (on a day when I was busy with something else) so I figured I'd get them out of the way in one big session instead of picking a few.
I've done Killa, Ugi and Cool so far, and I'm working on Chris' turn now. Everyone's turns get smaller from here on in (newer players) so I should be done within the next hour and a half.
It is now Turn 28.
New maps have been uploaded (Bo, your map has been put into the Bo folder, not the Atomic folder) and I'm sending PMs out soon.
Well now I can see a second NPC player.
Meaning I have met 3 NPCs
Not much new to report for me. City is up and running.
Same here, some immigrants came to me but that's about it.
I feel so lonely in my city. I have no barbs nearby or immigrants comming to me.
How far have you explored?
While I wouldn't recommend exploring, as it has had more of a negative effect than a positive for me, seeing how large some of the other civilizations are can be a real eye-opener.
Ohh You will get a visitor real soon.
It's all different for everyone I guess, my NPC's were friendly and all they asked was I didn't build farms on their territory. Nothing wrong with that I suppose.
My next four turns will be filled with nothing but artisan work :P Atomic didn't do anything so I'll be researching nothing but irrigation.
Turn 28 is now over. The next turn should be up tomorrow if not tonight.
did everyone get there turns in?
Nope, Ugi and Zikara didn't send in any directions. As per usual, all new families are assigned to farming, idle artisans remain idle and philosophers remain researching what they were already researching (idle philosophers remain idle).
close to ready yet?
It is now Turn 29.
Maps and PMs will be out soon.
Well scratch that contact with 3 tribes.
Same one you met earlier?
Apperently it wasn't The Epping before it was the Knogled. They killed my cartographers.
I don't recall you ever mentioning the Knogled. Though I take it they aren't exactly friendly.
Yeah they convinced me they were the Epping at the start scared me off and then when I sent my artisans to map the area they were attacked.
Just finished writing and am building my first fort on the edge of my map. How are you guys going?
I just finished executing a plan that will hopefully jump start my population boast in my new city, will find out if it works next turn.
Also writing is a pretty expensive research, any reason you decided to take it over more functional ones?
Tech boost and i was being stupid? It made my culture and moral go up though.
Fair enough. Nice to know it gives a boast to both morale and culture.
yeah, you were. When you're a new nation you don't research a 50 point tech, you research smaller ones first.
More of the same for me.
How do you know i'm not already more advanced than you?
Just got a crap load of new people by my standards at least.
Technically this turn will end tonight at 7.45pm my time (5.45am Saturday CYS time), though theres a few updates I want to implement in between this thread and the next one so I'm happy to take late turns until I say otherwise or the new turn is posted.
How are the updates going?
Pretty good. Got one update figured out so far.
Next turn will be in a day or two then?
Might be a bit longer, but a day or two is possible. The updates themselves won't take a long time; I'm just spending a lot of time either learning math (to get up to speed with where I have to be for a math unit I'm taking next semester) and working. Once I've got a good 4 hours or so I'll sit down, figure out the updates and prepare the next turn.
how goes it
Pretty good. Been spending a lot of time studying math over the past few days (to catch up for a unit I'm doing next semester), hence the lack of an update.
New thread is up.
