Round 24 Signups opened!

Round 24 - "Shattered Stars" signups are now open at http://game.planetarion.com/signup.pl.

Ticks commence at 20:00 GMT on Friday, 2nd November, with the "shuffle" occurring at 7:00 GMT on Sunday, 4th November. Ticks end at 20:00 GMT on Friday, 21st December.

There are a few main changes this round:
The XP formula changed:
XP gained = roids*10*bravery_factory
bravery_factor = (min(2, target_planet_value / your_value) - 0.1)*(min(2, target_planet_score / your_score) - 0.2)

Ships have up to 3 targets, 100%,60% and 30% damage to their first, second and third targets respectively. It is not necessary for the first target to be present for the second or third ships to be hit.

Democracy has been tweaked down, with the mining bonus dropping from 6% to 4% and the construction bonus dropping from 20% to 10%.

Salvage is changed, with all defensive salvage going to the fleet that lost the ships, rather than being shared out according to value. Attacking ship losses are still shared out according to value.

Salvage is also increased by 50%*(1 - your_score / (average_top_20_planet_score)) - it cannot be negative.

Please remember that Beta signups open tomorrow at 12:00 GMT, with ticks starting at 18:00 GMT, and that there's a speedgame ongoing at http://speedgame.planetarion.com, with Round 23 code but with private galaxies of 5 (and random galaxies) instead of alliances.

Also, we have a Creators Hour in #Planetarion at 20:00 GMT on Monday, 29th October. It will be on the NetGamers IRC chat network. If you wish to ask a question before or during the hour, please /msg CH_Bot <your question>!
