Rail guns will be a weapon in this role play and i will add info to all weapon descriptions to show what they are good against and what can be used to defend against them.......still have alot to add to the tech database.....i mean alot, you should see all the notes i have scattered throughout my bedroom ^^"

In the planetary information in the universe section, there will be a description of the monetary system that the race and planet in question use. Many will work on a trade system but some will actually have a credit system, others such as the asgard have no monetary system at all. They trade freely with their allies and only their allies.

I will add how long it takes to make things in general, mostly it will be common sense though and at the will of the story teller and the mods. Make it realistic and be fair, but most of all have fun with things.

Since this is a role play and its between people telling stories and playing in said stories, if you wage a war with a player character you must talk it out with them and the mods on how things will turn out prior to posting. If its a non player character then talk it out with the mods, as there will be no suddenly coming in and taking over empires and such without consulting the one who owns said empire. Remember, this is an ongoing story, not a real time strategy game.

An addition to this question.

While you cant go around randomly writing that you are attacking player characters and important non player characters without the owners permission, you can come up with your own non player characters and write them into your role play stories, that you are having a conflict with them. This is also a good way to get other player characters to join in your conflict and enhance the story progress.

I do realize that it is all role play stories, but I was just curious on how we were going to handle things. I don't think you would want us to write, I started to build a space station, if there are not the resources/underlings available. Just trying to get a grasp on it all.

Im basing what people are able to construct off the technology tier system in the database, what tier you fall in based on race and such will decide what you are able to have. If you fall in the tier that allows for space station construction then one must assume that you would have the needed resources to make them. Obviously it will also depend on world development level, if its a new recently populated planet with people fresh off the colony ships, you wont really have any of the facilities to get the resources needed to make the station.

Yes, but a planet with a population of 1 mil, for example, won't be able to build it as fast as a planet with a population of 6 billion, even if they had the resources.

But the little details as such are all part of how we get the story going.

All depends on story and development i guess, if your empire has alot of automated facilities and robot work force, you could get it done easy with so few population Wink

So are there going to be headers in each planet/asteroid section stating what is there in the first post, ie, Trade spaceport, orbital shipyard, orbital defenses?

Also, can we scale down the pics to not cover the entire page? I like them, but it just seems a little much with as big as they are. Honestly I think they could be about a quarter the size of less.

Have you thought about creating a background for each players empire that also states the current tech lvls, ships in service, population, etc....? Basically a tally sheet for what they have.

Header ?
I think i know what you are talking about, there will be an announcement topic in each location (planets and such) giving you the info about the world and the things on the surface and in orbit (i.e. shipyards, defenses and such).

I will consider making the pictures smaller.............*grumbles*

I have not yet finished inputing all the race data and background info, there is alot i must put in and it takes some time. Not every player character will have their own empire though, some will choose to join another player character's empire or join one of the none player ones as an active member of said group. All depends on what the player wants their story to be.

We call it the out of character section Razz
If you would like others to join your story you put something in said RP posts saying you send out a long range communication or something, then you make an out of character post in said section to recruit people into your story ^_^

Dyson Sphere

A Dyson sphere (or shell as it appeared in the original paper) is a hypothetical megastructure originally described by Freeman Dyson. Such a "sphere" would be a system of orbiting solar power satellites meant to completely encompass a star and capture most or all of its energy output. Dyson speculated that such structures would be the logical consequence of the long-term survival and escalating energy needs of a technological civilization, and proposed that searching for evidence of the existence of such structures might lead to the detection of advanced intelligent extraterrestrial life.

Since then, other variant designs involving building an artificial structure — or a series of structures — to encompass a star have been proposed in exploratory engineering or described in science fiction under the name "Dyson sphere". These later proposals have not been limited to solar power stations — many involve habitation or industrial elements. Most fictional depictions describe a solid shell of matter enclosing a star (see diagram at right), which is considered the least plausible variant of the idea (see below).

Is that even possible to build? How much resources would that take to construct, and can it be practical to defend?

Smaller versions could be built theoretically, and it would take lots of resources and a long time to build so only highly advanced races could construct such a structure.

Essentially its a massive armored planet powered by a sun, and it could hold the population of several worlds inside it on the interior surface..............would be interesting to try to assault that Twisted Evil

Maybe after that a SHORT guide to the forums. what is found under each heading, ie.

The Universe:
---All role playing takes place on location here.
---Post your story on the corresponding planet/location
The Characters:
---All characters are here
