The rules are:
Compressed JPEG images or low quality images are considered invalid and ignored, Save as .PNG!
Use a reliable image host that doesn't compress the image, doesn't change the format, doesn't re size it, and can be seen by everyone. (I recommend yourimg.in
)DO NOT USE IMGUR OR TINYIMG
. If you use imageshack, make sure to disable picture resizing.
If an image is 3 second crap It can be voted to be ignored. So take time on it. (Rating Agree for keep it/Disagree for discard it.)
Big leaps in technology and Overpowering Weapons/Vehicles are not allowed, you can't start having two giant ships that can erase the universe by pressing a button.
You are always allowed to make a planet, Unless absolutely necessary, nothing above 128x128 pixels If you really need to, increase the canvas size after adding the planet.
THE MAXIMUM SIZE IS 128x128, BUT TRY TO AVOID MAKING IT THAT BIG
Maximum Planet Size 128x
Declare. Declare is "Getting in line" to post an update on the "universe". If you see a post that says "Declare" but doesn't have an update on the universe image yet, do not post until you see the image in that post or posted later by the same user. Then Post "Declare" and everyone should
wait for you to finish before posting another update.
7.Do NOT Declare Stack past 2. Ever.
Planets can have moons, but only make moons if you are actually going to use them for something.
Shit like Warp Gates, Black Holes, Worm Holes, or Teleporter Orpheuses, are allowed, but you can't just start with them/make them in your second turn. You first need to research and discover that technology, then you have to build what you want, and you need a good reason for it.
Do not post a planet, then leave. This is NOT
Create a Planet. This is Create a Planet and Invade Others
. That means you have to stay and defend your planet. Or it will be destroyed.
Name Your Planet.
Do NOT cry and argue if your planet is destroyed. If it is destroyed, simply make another one, It Can even Be the Same Planet with a different name!
It is recommended
you color code/number/differentiate between your similar looking ships to help combat confusion.
Always post a brief explanation of what happened in your update at the bottom or top of the image.
You are allowed to omit details in your explanation to maintain a stealth technique, but be kind and perhaps leave a clue.
Any P2P Message sent from planet to planet on this thread IS hackable. If you want an unhackable message, use the Private Message System Facepunch provides.
Don't make giant moves in a single turn. That is considered godmoding and if you do it your post will be ignored.
If, for any reason, you disagree with any of these rules, let me know your point and I'll consider changing it.
19.Planets shall have a space of 2 planets between each other
, to prevent a clusterfuck.
A max limit of 5 small ships, 2 medium and 1 big with the option to trade a medium for two small or a big for two medium. Alternately if you have one type of ship you can have eight of those. (Other than things that cannot damage enemy ships. Like Construction Drones.) You may add 1 big, 2 medium, or
4 small after conquering and occupying another planet. A big ship can destroy a small ship in one turn but, depending on weapons systems and defenses, may not be able to destroy a medium ship in one, a big ship against a big ship should come down to a smaller group boarding it.
(Space Stations count, but they must be about as big as a normal planet, and should be built very slowly.)
If you use a terraformer/Planet creator ship to create planets, an 8 turn Occupation time must be set to allow for others to have the chance of contesting your occupation of the new planet.
