Game G resets 11/16

Classic near stock game.

10k sectors
1250 turns

Beefie Ferrengal!

Comet and his corp are the first to capture Ferrengal on my server. And it was just about as tough as I could have made a Gold planet. AND they did it with only 1k turns per day, near stock settings and Mega Rob turned off.
It took them less than 140 days. 

Good Job Guys!


Corp – What Corp ?
WHOMP aka Comet
no game aka Farnsworth

EIS Invitational

There's talk of maybe this season's first tournament on the EIS forum.

We may have enough regular players now on this server.  Is anyone willing to come together to play representing this server?

Let me know, and I'll "sponsor" a team, and if you have room, I may even play with you.  :)

Private Practice Games

If you'd like a private game to play/practice on, just let me know.  I'll bang the edit of your choosing and close it so you and your corp(s) won't be disturbed.

This is a good way to get up to speed and practice using today's scripts in a safe environment with your friends before you attempt more competitive games against other corps.

Contact me: and I'll get you set-up.

No Dupes Allowed

If you're unclear of what a Dupe is, this is one person playing two or more characters in one game.  You are certainty allowed to play more than one game at a time on this server, but you may only have one account in each game.

When I see dupes, they are deleted, no questions asked.

Please, come and have fun make new friends, form new corporations.  Let's just keep the games fair for all.

If you've had your account deleted and would like a second chance, please contact me.

Sever Thunderstorm heading this way.  I'm taking all equipment off-line and unplugging until the storm passes.  I'm expecting to be back up by 10pm EST Monday, June 18th.


The storm has passed, the server is back online.  We had some pea sized hail and a couple of power interruptions.  All is clear, enjoy the game!

Saturday, June 16, 2012

The games are just as they were on May 9th.

I'm still working on getting the server configured and running. Installing windowns updates as I type. (Keeping fingers crossed)

The reason the server went down was because of windows updates, my hardware guy tells me my HD's are undamaged, but the boot sector was blown the last time I installed updates.

All game data is secure. We installed a third HD to reload WinServer2003, with one of the original raid drives as backup. I just love canabalizing old hardware to re-pupose it. :)

Last night I installed TWGS and copied over all of the games, DynDNS is reporting good, but I'm still not able to telnet to the machine yet. Hoping after updates this all hums along smoothly again.

Wednesday, May 9, 2012

Windows update for Server2003 just corruped my windows/system file.

I've got to hit the sack,  I'll let you all know when it's up again.
Sorry for those in the tournament.  When I get it back up, I'll set a re-open date/time.

Spring Fever - Cinco de Mayo in Tournament Mode

Opening May, 5 at 7pm EST.

Cabin Fever was won by Orion aka "me".  Due in a large part because he logged in at game start and got a head start on everyone else and very effectively shut everyone else out.

To play a tournament mode game, be prepared to play as hard as your opponents.  This means getting in at game start.  Hours or even minutes can make or break a win for you.

You have two weeks to practice strategies, good-luck!

Upgrading Hardware - Completed

Later this evening (4/2/12) I'll be taking the sever down for some upgrades.

We should not be off-line for too long, sorry about any inconveniences.

Up and running on a new Gigabit Router.  :)

Enjoy!  Let me know if you notice a difference at all.

Corrected Alien behavior

In game D.

The Aliens should not be huddling around Star Dock now.  It's just a simple setting in the alien editor that needed to be switched on.

If you see anything that looks out of the ordinary, please just send me an e-mail.

Monday, March 5, 2012

Upgraded to 2.20 on 3/5/12

It's also come to my attention that I need to replace the battery on my MB.

Sorry about the late start for game B.  I had the equipment unplugged during the storm Friday night, and didn't realize the clock on the server didn't keep time until much later in the afternoon.

I was warm and dry, well stocked and didn't loose electric.  Many around me did.

If you're a FB friend, check out the pictures I uploaded.  It's quite the winter wonderland out there, but tomorrow we should be in the mid 40's and this all will be gone soon, time for spring!

Back online! - Snowed in? Game B opens at 12 noon!

Stock settings, gold bubbles, stock Ferrengi "beefed-up"

Friday, March 2, 2012

Power may go out....

Bad Snow, Ice and wind storms here tonight.  Power is fluxuating.  Taking everything off-line for the night.  I'll plug it all in again when the storm passes.

Sorry... better safe than sorry.  :)

Down for upgrades

Taking the server off-line for just a few today for some upgrades.  I'll have it back up soon.

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

Upgraded to 2.18B - 01/31/2012

Wow!  Fast turn around on bug report, fix and update! 

Now that's how a piece of software needs to be debugged, fixed and released.  Good job JP!

Monday, January 30, 2012

Upgraded to 2.17 - 01/30/2012

Just in time for the winter death tournament games! The death limit games now also include getting podded, not just #SD#!  Once you are podded in your last "pod", that's it... game over for you.  This is the new setting I've chosen for the Cabin Fever tournament game.  ;)

We still  have the capability to set the death limit with the old "buggie" behavior that said it didn't matter how many times you were podded, you're not out until you are #SD#.

Get those attack skills warmed up, you only have 5 more days until Cabin Fever!

Recent Resets

Lobby game reset today - test here, citadels go L5 in one day.

Game C is now closed and reset - scheduled reopen Friday, Jan. 27,at 7pm EST.

Get ready for "Cabin Fever!"  Opening Feb. 4th.
Most of the more aggressive script players will be busy in either the Fire or Ice tournaments also starting about the same time.  So, this is a great time to see what it's like to play in a tournament style game if you've never had the chance yet.

Cabin Fever - Opens Feb. 4th!

For those of you who've never played a Tournament edit, but wondered what it would be like, this game is for you! 

The settings are as near to the original 1998 Battle of the Elite game as I could get them.  Check out the game description page for details.

5k universe, 1001 turns, game aged 100 days, 6 member corps, 5 second photons

Plus!!  Using some of the new TWGS delay settings to keep this a player At The Key's friendly game.
