Sure, I love 4X and I agree with a lot of what you said about games being dumbed-down.  I have no problem with Nondisclosure agreements either.  So yeah of you need more play testers I would be happy to sign up.

PM sent.  :)

(Insert maniacal Vincent Price laughter here...)

I am interested in how you use an msflexgrid and have what looks like an integrated drop down in it. I have a free download called Lynx that does it, but it looks sloppy compared to what you use.

Because VB6 is getting long in the tooth, I am looking at alternatives like jabaco which uses the VB6 language, but I think compiles to bytecode. Unfortunately, Lynx is also not supported in this, so its double indemnity.


It's looking good Haegan. Don't worry too much about how long it takes. While I blitz through interfaces whenever I write a program, it's the coding that really takes time. As always, if you need any assets/help with anything, feel free to give me a shout.

(I'm a bit burnt out right now, went on a 4 day trip with my band to Moscow, Idaho for the Jazz Festival.)

I come from the depths of time to ask...

Any updates on this?
I know who I am, what I am, when I am, where I am, and how I am. Why I am is either up to God or will give me Godlike powers.

We have been working hard on getting a playtest game for The Game of Nations!, The BTS! engine set in the Victorian Era, going. Hopefully the test will begin by the end of June. We decided to test the new rules in a non-space setting so we could test them with less items to keep track of.  :)

I see! Was wondering.  The concept looks interesting, similar to a concept I was trying (and horribly failed) to develop a decade ago.  I was young and foolish :P

I'll try to keep an eye on things!

The game engine, hopefully, is designed to go from the stone age to the distant future using the same set rules. This test is to work out the bugs on the new changes and additional rules added, and detailed here on the forum.

I will be posting updates on the test as it proceeds.  :)

This seems really interesting, but I cant tell if this is pen and paper or download.   If it is downloadable, will someone send me a link?

BTS is a moderated pbem. Thor (not going to try to get his special characters in) created it and runs the games. I'm sure he'll be responding to this at some point and can give you more details.

Erik is correct, it is a PBEM game and we use excel sheets to track the data, which makes it easier on the player.

Nothing new to report since the playtest game I tried to get going fell apart when Backstab had to go to the 'Stan, and MrAnderson disappeared.

The rules have, FINALLY, been finished, Just needs lots of testing.  ;D

Are you willing to sign an NDA?

You're kidding right? A legal document for a PBEM?

Don't worry, your just guaranteeing that you wont give out any details on the game before the agreement runs out or (correct me if I'm wrong here Thor) until Thor says you can break it.
