Thanks man!

I might as well write up games and opinions before using said map.

Might help you in adding a few surprises.

Agree, plus that's about the LAST thing *I* want to see from this kind of game - author spending valuable development time on useless graphics.

Very nice! Each corner have a system. Rolling 1 dv8 sides for world amount, then do Chart from Stars without number for what is actually there.

Will post the four games. Your Own Culture, Children is the Stars and Star Brand. Another time.

Children of the Stars: You pick your race ( no humans, humanoid is a valuable.) then pick your theme, and go to town.

Your Own Culture: Thre stats, minimal is 1. Trees are Technology, Magic, and Evolution. Ten levels each with scale of what is strong.

Star Brand: Nine tiers of players, 1 is strongest, 9 is weakest. But the weaker tiers have way more numbers and other things in play to keep it fair.

Probability based calculations for simulating gun fighting:

I'm interested in what you're doing here. It looks like the basis for maybe a text-based game simulation. What's the scale of the gun fight you imagine this simulating?

Children of the Stars: Will do list later, race types, world types, and themes.


Your Own Culture: Still doing charts and trying for a reasonable cap.

Star Brand: Just need unit list. Also on purpose not going to make a tech list. As in Star Brand you can fandom pre existing factions. Will do tiers though. Tiers are threat scale not always tech.

1: The Culture
2: The Eldar from 40k.
3: Humanity at Dark Age Of Tech/Golden era. Also late game Beyond Earth or Stellaris.
4: Current 40k Imperium And Chaos. Also Star Wars.
5: Orks, Tyranids, Old Republic Tech.
6: Star Trek, Babylon 5, or Star Control.
7: Reapers from Mass Effect, and Halo Aliens.
8: Humans in Halo and Mass Effect Ciradsl faction stuff.
9: Battlestar Galactia Reboot, Fire Fly, low stuff.

So in Star Brand can pick pre existing factions, alter them around, or make your own up. Must give clear tech to match up faction by tier rank. Note that all tiers can and must research, and each tier has weaknesses.

Edit: In Star Brand willing to give a example. Rolled, faction in third tier.

Making a map for something. Need wisdom on how to better balance the global biome generalizations I've made here:

---> Africa (dune deserts ft. sun)
---> Asia (bareface mountains ft. sun or snow)
---> The Caribbean (thick jungles ft. sun or rain)
---> Central America (open plains ft. sun or rain)
---> Europe (tundras ft. sun or wind)
---> North America (forested mountains ft. rain or snow)
---> Oceania (thick grasslands ft. sun or wind)
---> South America (rainforests with rivers ft. sun or rain)

I like the ratio of weather conditions and the extremes of climate, but I could swap where these are represented to be more authentic.

A few years ago some game hosts got together and coocreated a cross forum game competition, and I am looking to do it again.
Forum Runner involves two players, jumping into other forum games(as players, or npcs, or bosses, ect.) where they compete. Last time was best of 3. I want to up it to 5. If interested or you'd like to know more.
PM here or on discord, thanks!
