[08:00] zippo: i suck at games unless someone is holding my hand and teaching me
[08:00] rchif0: what do you mean
[08:00] rchif0: you start off in sector zero
[08:01] rchif0: then you have to move to sector 1
[08:01] rchif0: which has an energy point (energy is a tradeable item, along with ore, goods, and organics)
[08:01] rchif0: er, energy trading post
[08:01] rchif0: so you buy all the energy you can
[08:01] rchif0: then in the bottom right, you can see the warp menu where you can warp to other sectors
[08:02] rchif0: if you do the full scan, you can see what those other sectors have to trade
[08:02] rchif0: then go to one that isn't one of what you already have
[08:02] rchif0: if you have energy, go to ore, for example
[08:02] rchif0: sell all your energy, buy all the ore
[08:02] rchif0: then go to a goods trading post
[08:02] rchif0: sell all your ore, buy goods
[08:02] rchif0: etc.
[08:02] zippo: there is a walkthru
[08:02] rchif0: ore and goods are the biggest money makers
[08:02] rchif0: yeah.
[08:02] rchif0: but i'm holding your hand.
[08:02] rchif0: i'm a serial-killer :)
[08:02] zippo: haha thanks
[08:02] rchif0: to upgrade your ship, you have to go to a "special" port
[08:02] rchif0: if you know where one is yourself, good
[08:02] rchif0: otherwise, there's always the one in sector 0, where you started
[08:03] rchif0: to warp all the way back there without having to go step by step, you can click on map on the left side
[08:03] rchif0: and click the top left icon
[08:03] rchif0: and it'll warp you there


There's a little convo I had with Zippo about the basic starting..

In the game, there's also a FAQ which lists different kinds of strategies. I know you can also kill people and colonize planets (which I'm trying to do), but I'm not entirely for sure how that all works, as I haven't done it yet. We'll see if it's interesting.

Basically, I'm trying to find some sort of massively-multiplayer PHP-script-based game to run at INTL for INTL members to play against and with each other. This can be anything from a fantasy MMORPG to this space trading game to a poker lobby. We'll see what can be found.

I don't think turns are updating automatically right now, as you're supposed to get a new one every 2 mins I believe. We'll try to devise a cronjob for the server to do that though.

Don't be afraid to tinker around at the moment because the game is going to most likely be reset again anyways, so it's a good time to learn.

Quoted from vislet:
WTF is a cronjob?


Quoted from Wikipedia:
cron is a time-based scheduling service in Unix-like computer operating systems. The name is derived from Greek chronos (χρόνοςLOL IM SUCH A FAG!!, meaning time.

I think Sunny gave up on the cronjob so this game might be kaput. Oh well, it got a fairly good reception for this first bit so we can surely try some other games. INTL'ers always like killing each other.

So bored with no game. MAGUSMAGUSMAGUSMAGUS

Yes. You have weapons, armor, and can attack people and steal their planets.

Working on it. I've suggested a few to Sunny. Dimi suggested a Risk-like game. Sunny suggested a stock-trading game.

And to figure out a game, you have to look at it for more than 2 seconds instead of just closing it and pulling a valley-girl-esque OMG.

I have more tutorializing chatlogs for you. FYI, I didn't know how to play this game either, but I just tinkered until I figured it out.
Quote:
[11:36] sunniesrevenge: All I keep doing is only making at most 2000 credits through transactions of buying one thing and selling it back
[11:36] sunniesrevenge: But most things cost like 100000 credits
[11:37] sunniesrevenge: so it takes me so fucking long to get 60000 credits
[11:37] rchif0: wtf
[11:37] sunniesrevenge: I'm still 40000 off
[11:37] sunniesrevenge: and my planets MAKE NOTHING
[11:37] rchif0: okay first
[11:37] rchif0: you have to increase your hull
[11:37] rchif0: the first hull upgrade takes like 3000 credits
[11:37] rchif0: gives you more space to buy more stuff.
[11:37] rchif0: second, creating an automated trade route is a lot quicker than just clicking back and forth
[11:38] rchif0: third, you have to put colonists that you buy from a special port on your planet
[11:38] sunniesrevenge: well yeah
[11:38] sunniesrevenge: automated trade routes?
[11:39] rchif0: on the bottom left, trade routes
[11:39] rchif0: for example, find a port that trades in goods and a port that trades in ore
[11:39] rchif0: close to each other
[11:39] rchif0: 98 and 99 are good
[11:40] rchif0: then on the trade route, you put in 98 and 99, and change it to warp
[11:40] rchif0: go to 98, click it when it shows up (you have to be in the first sector the trade route starts in) and you can have it automatically do it 10, 50, or 100 times
[11:40] sunniesrevenge: ok...
[11:40] rchif0: and 98 is only 2 spaces away from section 0, a special port, where you can just continually upgrade
[11:40] sunniesrevenge: I know the best place
[11:40] rchif0: yeah, wherver you find that works

[09:59] rchif0: did you transport any colonists to your planets?
[09:59] drahniersAIM: yes
[09:59] drahniersAIM: but they're not breeding
[09:59] rchif0: how many?
[09:59] drahniersAIM: 30
[10:00] rchif0: they reproduce very slowly, it's hard to tell unless you over like 50000
[10:00] drahniersAIM: oh
[10:00] drahniersAIM: lol
[10:00] drahniersAIM: thats too bad, because i cant find my planets again
[10:00] rchif0: "Colonists reproduce at the rate of 1.0005 * your current population each turn. So, it takes 2000 colonists to have one baby each turn. Man, these guys need some more mood music I guess. "
[10:00] rchif0: click planets on the left side
[10:00] rchif0: then you can click the zone number
[10:07] drahniersAIM: how did your score get so high
[10:07] rchif0: i earned like $500,000,000 i guess
[10:07] drahniersAIM: ...how
[10:08] rchif0: found a goods port right next to an ore port
[10:08] rchif0: created a trade route between the two
[10:08] rchif0: did it until i could upgrade my hull
[10:08] rchif0: upgraded my hull
[10:08] rchif0: went back and repeated
[10:08] rchif0: sectors 98/99 right outside of section 1 you can do that on
[10:08] drahniersAIM: oh you can create trade routes even when you cant do the real time thing
[10:08] rchif0: and then it's right next to section 0, so you can keep upgraded
[10:08] drahniersAIM: real space
[10:08] rchif0: yeah you can click warp on the trade routes
[10:08] rchif0: so it only takes a few turns

Quote:
[10:20] drahniersAIM: repeat 100 times
[10:20] rchif0: well
[10:20] rchif0: don't do 100
[10:20] rchif0: i mean you'll get some money
[10:20] rchif0: but it's more efficient to just keep doing it in 10x bursts until you can upgrade
[10:20] drahniersAIM: fu
[10:20] rchif0: fine whatev
[10:22] drahniersAIM: why doesnt it let me carry more colonists
[10:22] drahniersAIM: than 8 now
[10:22] rchif0: you probably have your cargo full of ore or goods still
[10:22] rchif0: you have to mnually go to one and sell it all

Quote:
[10:38] drahniersAIM: maybe you should just camp space number one
[10:38] rchif0: the thing is, it's federation space
[10:38] drahniersAIM: oh
[10:38] rchif0: if you have an average tech level of 8 or above, it'll automatically warp you out of federation space to somewhere random when the 360 count reaches 0
[10:38] drahniersAIM: i see
[10:38] drahniersAIM: thats good
[10:39] rchif0: so it keeps the big boys out of the little guy places
[10:41] drahniersAIM: wuts a space beacon
[10:41] rchif0: i don't really know
[10:41] rchif0: as far as i can tell, it lets you leave a message in space
[10:41] drahniersAIM: oh
[10:42] drahniersAIM: lol
[10:43] drahniersAIM: oh yeah
[10:43] drahniersAIM: it shows up under the turns used
[10:43] rchif0: yessir

[11:53] sunniesrevenge: NO
[11:53] sunniesrevenge: I was just clicking away
[11:53] sunniesrevenge: and then I clicked on a wrong sector
[11:53] sunniesrevenge: and it just destroyed my ship
