Battle Reports / Re: Islamic Jihad spreads Terror
« on: April 30, 2015, 06:35:44 AM »
Just work these days. Running a turn around facility which eats about 85 hrs per week.

As far as shameful goes, i would disagree.  I without a single mine or warp drive was able to eat against some pretty big players and win. Through deception and strategy we had some massive fleets hunting us and we were able to profit. Say what you will, but the psychology involved had people very angry and that translated to mistakes that we would capitalize on. Whole I'm sure you have a great fleet but we were pioneers in the game back then. But the game was very different at that time.

I was once the second most prolific poster in this forum... Then my work blocked the site, and I actually had to start earning my living.

Time to dust off the old cob webs...

Let's see who can write the best fan fiction!

Feature Suggestions / Flush the Format

Now I love a good math problem, and this game has given me some great opportunities to test my skills, but perhaps its time to introduce a new concept in the SFC universes.  Perhaps a precursor to the game we have now.  I really like the Kixeye format that is on fb these days, and think that this style game would do amazingly well for BFG.  Instead of the honey comb though, go with a 3 dimensional space giving 6 slots to attack a person's fleet with. (up, down, forward, back, left, and right).  You could even use this to link multiple players together, although I'm guessing that would take a few years as it would drag people's ram into whatever circle of hell suicides and adulterers are destined for.  Anyhow, upgrades to techs can affect ship's survivalbility rates, weapons' power, and range.  Each ship could have a certain fleet value giving people an opportunity to do swarm attacks, or specialty attacks with balanced fleets. 

This also gives a chance to deal with some conceptual weaknesses in the game particularly the loss of players as they loose their fleets.  Instead, destroyed fleets cost resources to repair, but by putting a cap on fleet value (dependant on a tech or Shipyard value) you minimize the risk of loosing a person's entire fleet to attacks.  as well you change the primary metric from Ore, crystal, and hydro, to time, although the previous are still secondary metrics and will be seen by most as the true primaries.  This would give BFG a real time strategy game where the player dictates the commands to his fleet regarding primary targets and logistical placement on the battlefield. 

To minimize the server space, the play has one main planet, but can capture 8 additional colonies with a predetermined mine level.  Once that colony is under their control, resources build up and are banked there.  The defenses will be predetermined by a RNG and mine level will determine the defense coefficient which is used to calculate defense level.  This can be further supplemented by the player's willingness to post fleets in that colonies orbit.  I'm tired so I'll stop here.  I've got to catch a flight in the morning.

I've found that no matter how good you are, there is always a 14 year old girl with her grandmother's piano that can do better.  This playlist is to that end.

My favorite right now is Peponi.  It's a Swahilli version of Coldplay's Paradise.  Give it a shot.  You won't regret it.

I'm sorry for that "words with friends" thread I posted last night.  I think it was more about my exwife than with words with friends.

Sorry Matt.

I drive my dream car!

2003 Chevy Suburban Z71 with leather seats (so the blood washes off), Sunroof (to shoot out of) and a CB radio to talk to truckers.  I converted it to run on whale oil because someone has to offset all of you damned hippies with your hybrids and crappy ethonol added gas.  Seriously, you are throwing good ethonol into a fire!

it's spelled "delusional", not "inflamitory"

I go by many names in many circles.

Just email me your questions.  I'm getting my six sigma black belt right now, so I'm going through the training again, but this time, even more in depth.

I'm gone for one week, and people go bat sh!t crazy and forget that we have rules here?  We always have!  Laggy even gave me a warning when I had helped him out with Statistics homework that same week.  When did everyone start thinking this place is a democracy?  This is syria.  Step out of line, and you get shot in the face!

As the most inflamitory person in this game, I think it speaks volumes when I say take a walk around the block, and Chill out a bit.  Go d mode a week, and have a few drinks at the bar.  Get wasted, and take some random home with you.  Wake up the next day, avoid eye contact, and then cycle back out.  The rage you feel mean:
