Blah. So, I figure I owe a few explanations at this point. To simplify greatly, Aurora has been downgraded from my obsession to my hobby, and I no longer have half the free time I did. This is still going, but it's now on a 'when I get to it' basis. I make no promises on the frequency of my turns, though I hope for at least once a week on average.   :(

As mentioned, Ektoras is looking for a position. If any of you want a backup/someone to share plans with, here's your chance.

Comments can go here. If they get overwhelming, I'll petition to split them off the topic.

Anyone needs a second hand to help managing your planet and space fleet?

Sorry about the double post, but my self and icecoldblood will both have exams in the next couple of weeks to month, is there anybody willing to come aboard as a third member to take over while we are doing that?

Yes I did, still causing problems though.  In a worse case scenario I can ask my second to get important stuff from the that screen.

Did you do the second step, which tells to copy the pictures in the planets subfolder?

Are you playing with a pack of extra images for planets?  Because whenever I try to open the system view it results in a crash.

There was an optional(?) image pack included with the install for 6.2 that you may have chosen to not add. Was a separate download.

I don't think so? I think it has the planets Steve's added since 5.56, but you should have those too.

Copy with SM password removed for testing. Minerals inaccurate. JPs between sol and oclonies should have JPs.

To clarify the dropbox email bit: You'll need a dropbox account to play this game. It's how we'll be sharing the database.
