Re: Planet Production 50% Balance

Thank you for the replies! I can only imagine that it's an extremely difficult challenge to try to manage exponential growth in a way which is effectively fair with all of the other in-game mechanics but also doesn't overly punish late joiners and creates a game which is "fun", and that these intere...

Planet Production 50% Balance

The current game has planet production rate at 50%, and I was curious about what the reasoning is behind that from a game balance perspective. Based on my calcs a colonist has a maximum value of approximately 9 credits based on credit creation rate: 1 colonist * (0.9 production rate) * (1/400 credit...

For example, it feels like activities like populating...

Next Game Reset?

Hey All!

Just decided to check out the site again after long absence. On front page still says game reset scheduled for Sept 1 2019, assume if it's 3 month rounds that means last reset was actually Dec 1, and next game reset is March 1? Just wanted to confirm, will be there!

Cheers,

Re: Site currently staying put for now...

Hi!

Glad the forum is back up, and good to hear that you've had improvement managing your health condition. Best to continue focusing on the important RL stuff, but will continue waiting patiently for the game's (hopefully) eventual return!

Best wishes,
