Posted By: Aftermath at 19:56pm

Here some the regular rounds that people seem to be asking for. Another 5 minute ticker will be starting tomorrow (Tuesday 14th) with ticks starting on Wednesday.

There could be some future plans in the pipeline. We've been having some discussions about possibilities going forward.

Here are the Sol details:

Tick speed: 5 minutes
Signup starts: Tuesday 14th April @ 19:00 SF time
Ticks start: Wednesday 15th April @ 19:00 SF time
Alliance member limit: 5

Enjoy!

New Sol and Protheus Rounds - 6th April
Posted By: Aftermath at 21:49pm

I'm announcing some new rounds because I know that Haldir has been busy. It was also his Birthday over the weekend so go say 'Happy Birthday' to him! I've been fixing a few bugs and exploits in the raid system. Lots of repair/attack bugs have been fixed. I also fixed a bug with speed repairs.

As a side note, it was April Fools' Day last week, so I thought I'd point you in the direction of the classic SF Ads prank. It's hard to believe that it was done in 2011. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2045

Round details are as follows:

Sol -
Signup starts: Monday 6th April @ 19:00 SF time.
Signup mode: 24 hours

Protheus -
Signup starts: Tuesday 7th April @ 19:00 SF time.
Signup mode: 48 hours

Tick speeds are 5 minutes and 1 hour as per usual. I've been thinking about doing a more regular setup for rounds. An example would be that a new Sol round would start every Monday, and a new Protheus round would start every second or third Monday - so that rounds were just running more regularly. Let me know if you think this is a good idea.

Enjoy!

New Sol Round!
Posted By: Lefty2k59 at 13:12pm

Hello again SFers. It's Haldir once again. I have returned from the fires of Hell and middle management to return with a new Sol round for you all! Thanks once again to my man Aftermath for taking the reins for a bit. I'll be keeping the changes he made going forward, so this Sol round will be the same as the last. The details are:

Sol:

Signup starts: Monday 9th March 19:00 (GMT)
Ticks start: Tuesday 10th March 19:00 (GMT)
Tick Speed: 5 minutes

If you have any comments, concerns or ideas let me know. Have a great round everyone!

New Rounds of Sol and Protheus
Posted By: Aftermath at 12:00pm

Here we are for some more rounds of SF! I've fixed the Sovereign issue for the Versuden race. I've added Defence Plats as research items again - and included the split between Defence Plats and SFs. Let's bring back some of those classic tactics.

A few people have been requesting some changes to Sol. One of those changes being some kind of accelerated starting mode - so that players begin the round with more land/roids and resources than usual to speed up the process further.

What I'm thinking about doing is running a normal Sol round from Monday to Friday and then have an accelerated speed round of Sol running from Friday night to Sunday night. It might take some of the fun out of knowing roughly when the round will end - but I thought that it might add a bit of a strategy.

Anyway, here are the round details:

Sol -
Signup starts: Saturday 21st @ 19:00 SF time
Signup mode: 24 hours

Protheus starts: Sunday 22nd @ 19:00 SF time
Signup mode: 48 hours

Tick speeds are still the same - 5 minutes and 1 hour.

Got any ideas or suggestions then let me know.

Enjoy!

New Sol Round - 10th February
Posted By: Aftermath at 13:17pm

Here comes another round of Sol. The tick speed will be 5 minutes again. Any suggestions for some different tick speeds for Sol? Maybe worth trying to 10 or 15 minute tickers again?

Here is the info for the Sol round:

Signup starts: 19:00 (SF time) Tuesday 10th February
Signup mode: 24 hours
Alliances and ships are the same as the previous round.

Enjoy!

New Sol and Protheus Rounds - 29th January
Posted By: Aftermath at 20:16pm

Here we are again with some more rounds. As standard at the moment, Protheus is 1 hour ticks and Sol is 5 minute ticks. There will be a few small changes to available ships in the round. I want to have a bit of an adjustment in order to properly balance things out and figure out what needs tweaking.

I am looking at other ways to improve the game without massive redevelopment. But at the same time I'm looking some possible big projects to hopefully flesh the game out a little.

New Round details:

Protheus Signup: 29th January - 19:00 SF Time
Signup mode: 48 hours

Sol Signup: 29th January - 19:00 SF Time
Signup mode: 24 hours

Got any suggestions for me? Come and let me know on IRC. - Afty

New Sol Round - Wednesday 21st January
Posted By: Aftermath at 18:08pm

Here we go for another Sol round. I'm doing my best to keep these regular and fresh. Another 5 minute ticker will be starting tomorrow at 19:00 SF time.

I've been posting on Facebook over the last week or so and it was good to see a few different faces showing up on IRC. It seems strange to realise that some people have been gone for well over a year or more already.

Anyway, Sol details:

Signup mode starts: Wednesday 21st - 19:00 SF time.
48 hour signup.
Empire alliances.

Hopefully we'll see you there!
