Is the game makeup 14 players with 5 computer players?

Just out of curiousity, is anyone willing to divulge what place they are in the scoreboard? I am currently 5th/6th. I'm wondering if the computer is kicking my butt already or not Smile

I think you are right on number of total players.

All I am going to say is that I am higher than you in ranking. Smile

If you are talking about the tithe you must pay my empire, then yes.

Nooooooo silly, when my score gets that low, I fire up the showers
and treat ALLLL my denizens to a refreshing cleansing, if you catch
my drift.

If your rank gets that low, I think your technology will have fallen below "showers". You'll be banging rocks together and gazing up in wonder at the fire gods from space as they take all the dirt and plants and shiny metals up into their sky chariots.

Well I am 4th. For a turn or two I was number 1, but I have not met any other players yet.

Any idea how many star systems there are?

You must be way out in the boondocks of the quadrant. Over on our side I've heard rumors that there are already a couple of scrappy little wars going on.

Just so everybody knows, the turn processing indicates there is some combat cgoing on somewhere. A couple turns ago, quite alot. I can only tell because a red progress bar pops up during the processing.

Has anyone noticed that the combat replays are not working? They just say that "combat replay could not be opened"

Did you get a tsmdgame_current_replay_combat.cmb in your turn download? There is one being generated, but maybe PBW2 is not disseminating it to players in the individual archives.

No, evidently I am not getting the combat replay file. It's been academic at this point since I'm not involved in any of the combat, but my probe droids have happened to accidentally blunder through a couple of firefights between other empires and it would have been interesting to have watched the fireworks (and gotten scans of the foreign ships... oops did I say that out loud?)

I've begun to meet others, but not a lot of them. 2 AI races I think... As for score, yeah, I'm higher than 5/6 too but I'm not going to say what Smile

I'm thinking that we must all still be pretty close in scores because I found myself 1st for a couple of turns too, but not anymore.

Anyone else not seeing combat replays? At least those who have been in combat obviously.

So far I've only met Bearclaw and 3 AI, and one of those is only because it already knew Bearclaw. I stopped expanding awhile ago.

So, I'm working on trying to figure a way to get everyone acces to the cmb file. In the meantime, if anyone wants it for the current turn, let me know and I'll email it to you. Additionally, to see ship components of enemy craft you have been invovled with in combat or close range scanning, go into the combat simulator and view the ship there. Once you have been "exposed" to a ship, it will be available there for your use as a test subject.

I forget, are we allowed to share technology, or do you have to trade ships and stuff? I was about to propose to the AI to share technology.

Why would you trade with a race you're about to enslave?

To make it easier to defeat them with their own technology. Then they're defeated before they have time to use the technology they might get from me.

Not being American I had no idea what ShamWow was until I watched the Daily Show this morning. I had to look it up. Now everyone's talking about it here.
