Ok Klatu will be hosting the game.
"The 24 hour quickhost we are doing now works good also. "
"for game settings...norfleet recommended when we started our current game to play karan...you guys want to give it a try?"
Fine - I have now done a few karan games (well started them) & it is nice.
"if we play karan there were 3 files...do we dl them all?"
? Dunno. I will try to check
"also for events they happen like every turn on common but on rare they still happen a lot but it isnt bad...so I recommend the 2nd game for events to be on rare"
Means that the balance is different The trade off between luck/misfortune seems OK on common events therefore would be pro misfortune on uncommon ones.(expect me to take luck -3).
I do not think this is a good idea but can live with it.
"also for magic sites...how about at least 50 this time?"
50 gives A LOT more sites than 40 and even more than the 35 we have (I have not found any in that game). This effects balance too of course but probably not as much. I vote for 50 cos I like rainbow site hunters! (but not higher - try it SP & see)
"indep strength I guess 6 or 9 i dunno, 7 indep
like we have now just seemed odd"
I think at least 6 is a good rule so do not have an opinion. It once again might effect choice of nation. R'lyeh frex is less fun on 9 than 6 as it cannot cherry pick who to attack as easily as land powers.
"world richness...either normal or rich...no clue on that one"
Normal - I am rather conservative rich gives far more money and pickles the broken record says this messes up balance. Still I only fiddled with it one time & have no idea how it messes up balance so could live with it.
"put hof on 15 and renaming allowed"
"for my nation I would like to try out abysia"
I will hold off until I see the set up - there are many I am happy to try.
Hm I do not seem to sound like a newby (like Boron
). I have still not got much proper (post turn 20 MP experience) but still if this is a problem I will drop out.
