112 7/1/2020 5:14:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message We're all pretty new so it'll be interesting to see how this works out.
111 7/1/2020 4:49:00 PM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message New log with the declaration but may need some guidance on the steps to take to get to that sequence. I believe the Terrans have to decide if they will remain neutral first.
110 7/1/2020 4:31:00 PM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message "Are we really going to continue bickering amongst ourselves while our enemies claim our domain! Put your differences aside and come together now to protect what is ours. Already whole star systems are being taken from under our noses. I say enough, now who is with me?!"
109 7/1/2020 2:32:00 PM Turn 4 Terran Message No Terran reassignment
108 6/29/2020 6:17:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message Glad you were able to get the update to work. Pereen completed their reassignments. Over to Terran.
107 6/28/2020 3:19:00 PM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message Got it working after a restart.
106 6/28/2020 2:59:00 PM Turn 4 Terran Message I downloaded ver 1.1
105 6/28/2020 2:43:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message Hi Dave ... older version should be okay. Karoly, when you did your log which version of the module did you use?
104 6/28/2020 2:25:00 PM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message Having some issues with the new module. I can't open the latest log in it, though I can open it in the 1.0 version. Should I keep going with that one?
103 6/28/2020 4:14:00 AM Turn 4 Terran Message Loaded Terran 2. Over to Gwynhyffar.
102 6/26/2020 8:59:00 AM Turn 4 Pereen Message I created and shared a Google sheet that will allow us to better monitor maintenance costs. Please check it out and make updates as needed. Thanks!
101 6/26/2020 8:18:00 AM Turn 4 Pereen Message Hi Dave, when you do your next log please resolve the Reserve Increase event. You should also have 1 drop coprs in reserve from set up (or if it was deployed, then record -1 VP). You may have picked that up by accident during construction rather than from the available pool of units. Units in reserve incur no maintenance burden so can't be removed to reduce maint. However, when you implement the event, you should also reduce your maintenance accordingly.
100 6/25/2020 1:10:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message Pereen launches 2 more probes. Now Terrans can execute their construction.
99 6/25/2020 12:53:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message During the lull, I had made some updates to the module. Please download it from dropbox, and then use the Refresh Counters option the next time you finish loading your saved game file.

Changes includes: two buttons for tracking the Sequence of Play (one normal turn, one battle turn), a battle board, and unit shortcuts to send units to the battle board.
98 6/24/2020 11:37:00 AM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message Email seems to be working but i will also try to be more mindful here.
97 6/24/2020 11:14:00 AM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message Econ and settlements.
96 6/23/2020 1:52:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message The wonders of email. Thanks for letting us know. Is your spam filter situation resolved?
95 6/23/2020 7:36:00 AM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message Wow. I apologize for the neglect here. I was receiving email notifications but apparently they started going to my spam folder. This is the only game I have going here so I just didn't see this until now.
94 6/20/2020 9:53:00 AM Turn 4 Pereen Message Last call before this game is abandoned.
93 6/15/2020 3:59:00 AM Turn 4 Terran Message Gwynhyfarr's 1st segment is next.


92 6/14/2020 7:27:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message NBS - just checking for status.
91 6/6/2020 12:50:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message Reminder - Gwynhyfarr log 1 is due (after the weekend).
90 6/1/2020 11:30:00 AM Turn 4 Pereen Message The chit is an event I played on Gwynhyfarr during my first log for the turn.
89 5/31/2020 9:27:00 PM Turn 4 Gwynhyfarr Message Sorry what's the reserves increase chit at the top of the map for?
88 5/25/2020 9:44:00 AM Turn 4 Terran Message Forgot to grow existing settlements so added a file 22
87 5/25/2020 9:26:00 AM Turn 4 Terran Message Terran 1 phase done.
WS T4 - 021 Ter - Gwy added
86 5/23/2020 12:09:00 PM Turn 4 Pereen Message Pereen T4 log 1 posted to dropbox. Two additional probes land with uncontested colonies.
85 5/23/2020 12:08:00 PM Turn 3 Pereen End Turn
84 5/23/2020 11:47:00 AM Turn 3 Gwynhyfarr Message Not one to declare war... yet
83 5/21/2020 3:56:00 PM Turn 3 Pereen Message Last call for mobilizations / declarations of war. Otherwise on Saturday I will advance the turn and start my Pereen 1 log.
82 5/17/2020 11:21:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message We both won the "initiative" 5 times

80 5/16/2020 11:45:00 AM Turn 3 Pereen Message Pereen have no redeployments.
DoW declarations in order: Pereen probe (none), Gwynyhfarr, Pereen, Terran
79 5/14/2020 11:48:00 AM Turn 3 Gwynhyfarr Message I have no redeployments.
78 5/14/2020 11:41:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message No file in dropbox ?
77 5/12/2020 4:39:00 PM Turn 3 Pereen Message Gwynhyfarr 2
Execute Construction (indicated that there would be none in earlier message.
Unit Reassignment

So it's up to Gwynhyfarr to perform any redeployments. I will update Terran log suffix to indicate Gwyn are next.
76 5/10/2020 2:46:00 PM Turn 3 Terran Message File 19 loaded. I think I increased my economy buy 1 EP to much due to economlic development (based on previous income + settlements of the turn , rather than just the income at the begining of the turn. I will correct from 31 to 30
75 5/9/2020 7:35:00 AM Turn 3 Pereen Message Yes, though no particular hurry.
74 5/8/2020 1:37:00 PM Turn 3 Terran Message Is it my turn to act ? :-o
73 4/29/2020 3:30:00 PM Turn 3 Pereen Message I can access ACTS fine now.
72 4/29/2020 9:11:00 AM Turn 3 Gwynhyfarr Message Sorry no construction from me this round.
71 4/29/2020 6:12:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message No redirect here
70 4/22/2020 5:15:00 PM Turn 3 Pereen Message Hi David. It looks like you forgot to post a delayed note indicating your construction plans.
69 4/20/2020 7:19:00 AM Turn 3 Gwynhyfarr Message Apologies. Been a hell of a week. First part of Gwynhyfarr's turn is now in.
68 4/19/2020 8:00:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message Everything allright, Sondod ?
67 4/15/2020 5:06:00 PM Turn 3 Pereen Message Karoly, your updated log looks good, and the delayed note issue noted. Up to Gwynhyfarr.
66 4/5/2020 9:45:00 AM Turn 3 Pereen Message I took a look at the Mobilization rules (for DoWs) and it does have a specific order: Pereen probe arrival, Gwynhyfarr, Pereen, Terran. It seems that it is declared against the faction and not a specific settlement.

Important - see 3.8 and 6.28.
65 4/5/2020 9:29:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message Corrected. I entered a new construction Delayed Note as I can't delete the previous one.
64 4/5/2020 9:23:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message Ok. I'm going to make the necessary adjustements.
63 4/5/2020 9:21:00 AM Turn 3 Pereen Message See 3.2 for Line of Communications, needed for settlement, and is based upon bases and jump range. The only Terran base right now is Sol.
62 4/5/2020 9:14:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message "and closer settlements haven't finished yet..."

Mmm, I was not aware of such a condition. The condition listed in 6.22 is a line of communication to an owned system. 3.8 does not seem to require the system to be *fully* settled in order to be "owned". If it is settled , it is owned. I may be wrong though.
61 4/5/2020 8:55:00 AM Turn 3 Gwynhyfarr Message I'm not sure Terra could settle 82 Eridani as it is out of the range of Sol and closer settlements haven't finished yet.

Also I'm not clear on the ability to declare war on settlements that haven't finished. Asking for a friend :)
60 4/5/2020 5:48:00 AM Turn 3 Terran Message Terran 1 loaded
Gwynhyfarr 1 next
59 4/4/2020 12:59:00 PM Turn 3 Pereen Message Pereen turn 3 log 1 posted. One probe lands at Chi Draconis.
58 4/4/2020 12:36:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen End Turn
57 4/4/2020 12:36:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message So it looks like we go on to turn 3.
56 4/2/2020 3:38:00 AM Turn 2 Terran Message no DOW here
55 4/1/2020 5:32:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message DOWs anybody? I'll assume no notifications by end of Friday means nobody's doing so, and I'll post Pereen log 1 for turn 3.
54 4/1/2020 2:00:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message No Terran reassignments
53 3/31/2020 5:55:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message Pereen are fine with current position so no log for relocations. Back to Terrans.
52 3/31/2020 7:45:00 AM Turn 2 Gwynhyfarr Message Sorry for the delay. I've done my construction and chose to do no reassignments.
51 3/28/2020 1:50:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message I submitted the module to Vassal for posting, with a credit to Karoly whose graphics make all this possible.
50 3/26/2020 4:26:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message File 12 loaded. I added the segment identifier to the file name. Gwynhyfarr 2 next.
49 3/25/2020 5:54:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message No. That was Pereen 2 for Turn 2.
48 3/25/2020 12:56:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message Shouldn't your WS T2 - 011 Per - Ter file have been a WS T3 - 011 Per - Ter ?
47 3/25/2020 12:53:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message I only saw my second log come in. If you both have already implemented construction and maint, and there are no DOW, then go and confirm and I'll do my first Pereen turn 3 log.
46 3/25/2020 12:42:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message I think we should move this on to T3. Agree ?
45 3/23/2020 6:59:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message ANNOUNCEMENT: Two additional probes launched to (*#%@_) and (11111). Expect new protein options including Snark. Snark hunt are rumored to be a right of passage, and expect many to leap mindlessly into Your open feed bags.

44 3/21/2020 11:35:00 AM Turn 2 Gwynhyfarr Message "Let us be motivated by the facts and not the emotional rants of zealots."

"Objection!!"

"Which is well within the rights of the Rho clan leader, just as it is within the rights of all present here to hear me out. Should we be wary of the actions of the Pereen? Absolutely. They have exhibited technological advances which would prove quite the challenge for strongest defenses should things ever escalate to that point. What we have never seen however is a technology which presents itself as alien to not just us but to the Pereen themselves, which they could have placed in a to this point untouched star system completely unbeknownst to us.

"Unless we believe in tales magic like those found in the bedtime stories of Rho children, there is a far more logical explanation, which is that a new species has emerged in the sector. Before we rush into making new enemies, we should take careful consideration. It is reasonable to assume that the Pereen are just as surprised by this as we are, in which case the first among us to make diplomatic contact may obtain the advantage."
43 3/21/2020 11:21:00 AM Turn 2 Gwynhyfarr Message Posted Gwynhyfarr turn 2. One thing I realized is that I had been constructing previously from my reserves which those should exclusively be for wartime efforts correct? I'm not sure what the initial value of that is but will try to correct when I do my actual construction next pass.
42 3/20/2020 2:01:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message Posted WS T2 - 009 Ter - Gwy
Entered a delayed note for construction, hope it's ok. Next time I will try to describe what I'm doing as well ;-)
41 3/20/2020 1:23:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message I agree on this. Your schedule is fine as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for the effort. I believe it was important that these things be clearly defined so we know what to do or what to expect from others players at any time. Good job.
40 3/18/2020 5:23:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message It may help to suggest changes by making adjustments to the current schedule of mailings:

Pereen 1
Draw event chit
Economic Development
Pereen Probe Arrival
Settlement
Notate Construction

Terran 1

Economic Development
Settlement
Notate Construction

Gwynhyfarr 1

39 3/18/2020 4:46:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message Dave, thanks for correcting my log suffix.
Karoly, I'm certainly open to discussing how we break things up. My mailing went from A to D, and I documented my construction and maintenance for E. I don't think any Terran or Gwynhyfarrian action in A through D would impact my construction and maintenance decisions.

Thoughts?
38 3/18/2020 2:37:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message Ok, I wasn't looking in the right folder ;-). But I still have a problem with our current handling of the turn sequence. All phases are supposed to be performed by all players before going to the next phase. We don’t seem to follow the rules in this regard. Rather it seems that we are going individually through several phases, I don’t recall it being discussed beforehand. I understand that some flexibility is needed to speed up pbem play but what phases are we supposed to go through before handing the token to the next player ? Up to “H” ?

Consider this : if we go through phase A-G the Terran player never gets to see the new Gwynhyfarr settlements before doing his new constructions, yet it’s not hard to imagine that his decision might be impacted by it. Our departure from the sequence of play may have unintended consequences. Opinion ?

37 3/18/2020 2:12:00 PM Turn 2 Terran Message The last file I see in dropbox is still WS T1 - 007 Per - Ter.

But turn 1 is over. Shouldn't we go to the turn 2 event chit phase according to the sequence of play ?
36 3/18/2020 8:35:00 AM Turn 2 Gwynhyfarr Message Been quite the adjustment over here as well. Hopefully you all are keeping safe.

Last file was named for Gwy but as it is now Terran move I changed to Ter.
35 3/17/2020 6:41:00 PM Turn 2 Pereen Message Yesterday was a bad day as I had to prepare for working at home arrangements. Pereen Log 1 posted for turn 2.
34 3/14/2020 2:12:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen End Turn
33 3/14/2020 2:12:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message Looks like there are no reassignments or declarations of war, so I'll advance the game turn record. Top of the order will be for the Pereen. I have company for the weekend so I'll do my turn either late Sunday or after work Monday.
32 3/14/2020 11:58:00 AM Turn 1 Terran Message none, indeed.
31 3/14/2020 11:31:00 AM Turn 1 Gwynhyfarr Message Is Terra doing any reassignment this turn? If not I think we can move on to turn two.
30 3/11/2020 8:24:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message I posted Pereen reassignments, along with a correction for my production.

Regarding the definition of "owned" see 3.8. It says a settled system is owned. The second bullet says you own any system you settle. There's no condition for it to be fully settled. So you can reassign units to a system with a Settlement 1 marker on it (just added during the current turn).
29 3/11/2020 7:18:00 PM Turn 1 Gwynhyfarr Message Oh and I didn't take an event chit as i thought we were skipping those for round one.
28 3/11/2020 7:18:00 PM Turn 1 Gwynhyfarr Message I actually did my reassignment during my last turn. After construction on LFT1747 reassignment landed units on Beta Hydri and Delta Pavonis. Also just for clarity the rules say you can only do reassignment to owned systems. Unclear how that applies to systems in the process of being settled.

Regardless my moves are in for this turn.
27 3/11/2020 6:51:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message The module design has a global option enabled to always center on opponent's move. I recall seeing Dave's moves do so when I played them.

To summarize what has happened so far:

Log 2 - concluded setup
Log 3 - Pereen 1 Mailing in entirety: Draw event chit, Economic Development, Pereen Probe Arrival, Settlement, Notate Construction
Log 4 - Terran 1 Mailing: Draw event chit, Economic Development, Maintenance (out of sequence), Terran Tech Dev (out of sequence), Settlement. With only 3 EP remaining, likely no construction was notated/executed. Ready to perform Unit Reassignment
Log 5 - Gwynhyfarr 1 Mailing: Probably a chit draw (didn't see a note and module doesn't report this action; may need to see if I can fix that), Economic Development, Settlements, Construction and maintenance appear to have been posted directly rather than notate, ready perform unit reassignment.
Log 6 - Pereen 2 Mailing in entirety: reveal/execute construction and probe notation, ready for unit reassignment.

So it looks like it's up to Gwynhyfarr Unit Reassignment, then Pereen and Terran. Sequence is printed on map in upper left corner. I'll update log files to list him as next.

Dave, if you have no reassignments, just post a message indicating so.
26 3/11/2020 4:33:00 PM Turn 1 Terran Message I recall there used to be some "auto center" function in Vassal to focus on the moving pieces while playing a log file but it doesn't happen here. I'm wondering how to get this effect.
25 3/11/2020 4:27:00 PM Turn 1 Terran Message What is the next phase ?
24 3/11/2020 4:48:00 AM Turn 1 Pereen Message I forgot to do my removal as per my construction orders, so just play my "a" log after my normal log.
23 3/10/2020 8:43:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message I posted my log.
22 3/10/2020 8:42:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message Deep Dive 2525038.75, Pereseedy 20- : Release note to the warren, providing additional wire and web to a new outpost for your feasting needs. Scent of other protein sources is becoming stronger. Web opens at 2525039.

Fun fact for soviet Burniebroughs ... They say the others are reliant upon primitive time effects due to sun patterns called "Daylight Savings Time". Why would Other think time can be saved, let alone saving daylight?
21 3/10/2020 2:09:00 PM Turn 1 Terran Message The Condominium Space Gazeteer

Colonist Mission vessels Tx-14 arrived at Alpha Centauri and settled on the planetoid we called “Hope”. The 6000 settlers disembarked and started building shelters and deploying terraforming devices. Communications webs were set up. Food supplies are being stockpiled. Exploration teams set up.

Strange signals were picked from Quadrant 1dr5. Origin unknown.

20 3/10/2020 1:19:00 AM Turn 1 Gwynhyfarr Message "The signals are coming from Sol!! What more evidence could high command want that these Pereen vermin are moving with ill intent into the demilitarized zone? A line must be drawn which pushes them back where they belong lest they wish to be understood as an aggressor, in which case our future actions and triumphs have clearly been written in the stars."
19 3/10/2020 1:13:00 AM Turn 1 Gwynhyfarr Message Added the log for my construction, settlement and reassignments.
18 3/9/2020 8:43:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message It looks like it's actually over to Gwnyhyfarr. I'll update the last log file filename to indicate so.
17 3/9/2020 8:29:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message It's up to me, and I'm about to do my log file. Note that the log file suffix indicate who goes next.
16 3/9/2020 8:29:00 PM Turn 1 Pereen Message It's up to me, and I'm about to do my log file. Note that the log file suffix indicate who goes next.
15 3/9/2020 9:08:00 AM Turn 1 Gwynhyfarr Message Is it on me now? It looks like You both have done settlements. So I should be doing construction, settlements and revealing. If that's correct I will get that logged tonight.
14 3/8/2020 4:19:00 PM Turn 1 Terran Message Ok. Entered the first Terran move - did the settlement and tech development as well. All bit out of sequence ;-) I'm still struggling with the Vassal interface . Forgot to remove my last 3 pt's for the settlement.
13 3/7/2020 11:05:00 AM Turn 1 Pereen Message First T1 Pereen log posted. Propaganda to follow later in the weekend.
