    Is this new SA going to have the stupid economy like the other?

    Just because they're anonymous movements doesn't mean they're invisible...

    Anonymous movements wouldn't be a possibility, secret means secret. If you know x troops are invading from y, it's pretty damn obvious the owner of y is attacking.

    Eh...I agree with nico here.

    Its just needless confusion.

    Imagine in SA now, " 50 battleships move from CBU to Wanmei Space"

    I WUNDER WHO DID DAT?

    Doesn't take a genius to see who is behind it and also it strains mods to recive a PM then repost it.

    Well only certain moves would be secret, like for example, a ship or two probing border regions... I can understand what you mean though.

    I was going to write a rebuttal to some of the things said, but....

    Nah, screw it. I'm done with Alliances Games right now.

    Your way or the highway?

    Anyhoo, in that case I will take your work and add it to my own.

    Feel free to drop by and be a player, its relaxing.

    Nope, I just realized that while I want to make a game, I don't want to run it.

    Having one without the other is crap. For me, for the players, for everyone.

    Then let someone else run it. Seems simple enough to solve.

    He was just being dramatic.

    He is still helping me create the rules behind the scenes and will probably play. He just can't/won't run the game, I will do that part with pauld's help.

    Speaking of which I will post map today and new colonization is gonna be epic. You will start out with one system and have to adapt your faction to it. I found a sweet system randomizer website with random events

    Economy is getting done as fast as possible. Military looks pretty good, but IMO Silo and others such are better at designing military than me. To me military is just a tool to achieve economic ends.

    Will post as soon as I can, 4 day weekend helps my conscience. Thank god for california budget cuts/George Washington birthday cluster!

    We're trying to think of rules as we speak. It's not exactly an intensive effort, mostly just waiting for inspiration, so if you have any suggestions, feel free to give them.

    Before I can offer any constructive help: what direction exactly is this going in? Just a "realistic" post apocalyptic world? Or zombies, mutants and similar stuff too?

    No, it's not meant to be realistic. It'll become increasingly less so as you explore the wastes and discover schnazzy new weapons and technology.

    If you wanna talk about it, you best be gettin' on MSN.

    He's locked in my basement, but we share a love of Rp games run by people called Bert.
