With the first tick just happening, it's about time for another announcement!
Firstly, to repeat:
Round 16 is FREE, and starts Friday 27th at 21:00 GMT (now!) for 8 weeks, with 1 hour ticks.
Exiles have been changed:
Planets in protection can now be exiled
there's a 24 tick delay on exiling planets that land in your galaxy (as opposed to 48 ticks)
self exile is slightly more expensive:-
(value/ 10)*(times self exiled+2)^2
Buddy packed players cannot be exiled by the galaxy commander or self exiled.
Also as a reminder, at 20:00 GMT on Wednesday 1st Feburary, in #Planetarion on irc.netgamers.org
The forums have also been busy:
Fancy meeting other Planetarion players in Amsterdam? On Saturday the 4th February, Kloopy is visiting and meeting any (ex) Planetarion player that turns up (here for more information).
Also Kloopy and Appocomaster will be around in York on the 18th/ 19th of February - a few people might be around (more information here) .
Think old friends might be interested in playing? Tell them we're having a free round! We have a related thread here.
Related to this, for returning players, the Alliance Recruitment forum is located
here and a list of major changes over the rounds is located on this thread.
We have a constantly-updated list of generally helpful game-related links here.
Want to make a banner for Planetarion or willing to host one? See this thread for more information
Also, Assassin has clarified some of the rules regarding what constitutes cheating and abuse, and the Multihunters view on it here
Good luck with the round, and we'll see you all at Creators Hour next week :)
Minor edit: any planets not upgraded by tick start that were activated more than a day or two ago have gone, as we assumed that free planets would upgrade! If you're having problems logging in, this might be why.
