Update Schedule: 1 Update / 12 hours (at 8am/8pm EST)
Game Opens: Friday, March 19th, 2004
First Update: 8pm, Sunday March 21st, 2004.
Uniform Start Islands, each with plains "as protective beaches" surrounding the majority of the coastline and 6 coastal wilderness sectors for harbors. Start Islands have approx 35 wilderness sectors with uniform resources.
Gold only in a few mountains, so banks will not be primary sources of runaway cash.
Market is enabled, but the time to sell is equal to one-update period to reduce "Market Abuses". Trade, however, has about a one-half-update period to allow for Tech Toys to be traded.
Several expansion islands, some very close to each country's start islands, some equi-distant to neighbors.
Slow Tech, log base 10, all bleed (50%), slower than usual tech decay. Start tech is Tech 80 with standard 4.2.13 units/planes/ships.
Game Duration: 25 updates (see win conditions).
At the end of 25 updates, there will be one winner defined by being at the top of the power chart at the endpoint of the game and having a minimum of 5% power "score" lead over the next player, if not, then the game goes into sudden death overtime (for another update.)
Once the Win Condition is met, the following additional credits are to be given out at engame:
1) Highest Tech
2) Highest "Ships Score" (defined as each ship * ship eff * ship build cost $)
3) Highest "Planes Score" (defined as each plane * plane eff * plane build cost $)
4) Highest "Units Score" (defined as each land unit * unit eff * unit build cost $)
5) Most Bars in "home bank", so in order to get this prize, one needs to consolidate all bars in one's bank on one's start continent.
Additional In Game Bonuses:
Prior to, and throughout the game, there will be 3 small prizes to be won based on your abilities to create great lyrics to some lame midi tracks. Judging will be done by Bungy. The links to the tracks are below:
Prizes are as follows:
Best Lyrics: 10 bars
Runner up(s): 5 bars
