Hi guys. I've been busy working on a professional certification and renewing another, so my responses may be slow for awhile.
The Gwyn move is fine but there isn't a target or need for naval combat as I have no SDBs in the system. So basically we're staring at one another. Let me know if you need to revise your move or if I should move next.
|251||1/10/2021 10:30:00 AM||Turn 5||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
Ok so the action turns to BD 2. I've paused at the combat phase to verify. I think i have strength 6 to your strength 0 (maybe 1) for naval combat. Once you confirm we can roll those dice here.
|250||1/4/2021 6:02:00 PM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
I posted a log for war turn 1, as I didn't hear any change of mind from Gwyn regarding turn 1 movement order. Just some shuffling around.
|249||12/20/2020 5:56:00 PM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
Think about it and then confirm who you want to go first (no assumptions).
|248||12/16/2020 8:40:00 AM||Turn 5||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
I think I will let the Pereen go first, but it's under the assumption that there's no way for me to attack a syste before your movement phase to take out a web nexi. Or perhaps if war was declared with my forces already in a system I would have the opportunity to do so. Like the Terrans could do now in Cygni. :)
|247||12/12/2020 7:11:00 AM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
Gwynhyfarr to determine who goes first for war turn 1 (12.04).
|246||12/12/2020 7:07:00 AM||Turn 5||Terran||Message||
Terrans will remain neutral here.
|245||12/12/2020 7:03:00 AM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
Just to clarify, Pereen passes on its option to declare war for its probe landing this turn. Terrans will need to decide if they want to ally with either Gwynhyfarr or Pereen, or remain neutral.

It looks like things are caught up. I played that event chit this turn, so was leaving it for removal at the end of the full turn just as a reminder. I think using the SoP will help keep things on track, though I do still get confused a bit. For now though I just did reassignment. Passing it on to the Pereen.

There is an event chit drifting between Fomalhaut & CD-27. Shouldn't this go back to the pool ?

What do you recommend? Dave, any insights?
|236||11/20/2020 1:22:00 PM||Turn 5||Terran||Message||
I'm starting to get hopelessly lost here. I'm supposed to do Terran phase 2, but I didn't even do Terran phase 1. We keep skipping things somehow.

I will be on vacation all of next week.

Gwynhyfarr turn taken.
|233||11/15/2020 7:58:00 AM||Turn 5||Terran||Message||
Looks ok. Thanks for the research and clarifications !
I still hate you ;-)
|232||11/15/2020 7:50:00 AM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
I just took a look at Terran build (1 light fleet at 61 Cygni). Thanks for the pause for validation. I couldn't view it as being suspect given that everything Pereen does has already been committed to in advance. Time travel would help. It's also a different type of game that I think we're all used to playing.
Rule 7.22 limits Terran builds to the location of Sol, Terran Bases (not settlements), and Terran web nexi. So your legal construction locations are Sol and Tau Ceti. So technically the light fleet should be moved to one of those two locations.
Practically speaking, unit reassignment will be coming up shortly. Ownership of 61 Cygni allows it to be a valid destination for reassignments. So I don't see a need to make a correction at this point as it could be assumed you want to move it to 61 Cygni during reassignments. You can make any adjustment during your next log.
Terrans building web nexi could help with allowing for builds where there are not bases. You could even stop building bases and just spread out using nexi and can still build fleets there, though bases would provide air-space defense.
So unless there's anything else to be resolved, Gwynhyfarr are next.
|231||11/10/2020 6:33:00 PM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
Been busy. I'll check the Terran log tomorrow unless I get blitzed at work.

Posted WS T4 - 032 Ter.
Let's all agree (or not) that this is legit.
|229||11/4/2020 6:56:00 PM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
I renumbered my log file (031 I think). Go ahead and do your construction; shouldn't impact my play as so much of what I do is pre-plotted.
|228||11/2/2020 2:40:00 PM||Turn 5||Terran||Message||
Mmm, how does file T5 029 follow file T4 030 ?
I didn't play out Terran 2 (construction - Tech advance) from Turn 4.
|227||10/31/2020 10:02:00 AM||Turn 5||Pereen||Message||
Pereen log for turn 5 posted. Probe arrives at 61 Cygni. Guess with these probes you never know who you'll run into.

Yes. Let's move on.

Same here. If Terrans can confirm, we can go on. Note I will be on vacation and out of town Wednesday (late morning). So if you can confirm, I may be able to do my turn before leaving. Otherwise I'll respond on MOnday.
|223||10/20/2020 6:55:00 PM||Turn 4||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
Turn taken. Map is starting to get crowded, but no dow for me this turn so unless someone else is we can move to turn 5.

Ok turn taken. Pereen up next.
|218||10/17/2020 10:45:00 AM||Turn 4||Pereen||Message||
Regarding base construction, rule 7.24 states that "A player can construct a base at any system he owns (see 3.8) to which he can trace a line of communications (see 3.2). The second bullet of 3.8 states you own a base that you settle unless it's conquered. So that can be a Settlement 1 marker or greater, or a control marker. Line of communication is either by web nexi or commerce distance.
|217||10/13/2020 1:07:00 PM||Turn 4||Terran||Message||
I'm not sure why the control marker is in Tau Ceti. We can remove it. I drew and played a settlement marker at the begining of turn 3 and increased 3 settlements population by one.
I re-read the construction rules. Because bases can never move, it seems to imply that Terran bases cannot be build in owned/settled systems (ownership doesn't seem to require full settlement) but only at systems containing Web Nexi. Is this correct ?
|216||10/12/2020 4:16:00 PM||Turn 4||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
A couple of things I'm not sure about:
* We're only on turn 4 so I don't think Alpha Centauri should be at Settle 5 though maybe there was a chit for that?
* Similarly Tau Ceti has a Control and a Settle 4 marker when it needs to get to 6.
* There's also a base on Tau Ceti which I'm not sure you can place without first having control.

No DoW yet from Gwyn. If none for Terran we should just be moving to the next turn yes?

No Pereen reassignments. Next steps are Terran reassignments then DOWS from Gwynhyfarr, Pereen (none as no probes landed) and Terran.

Yeah something went wrong. End of turn 1 has the Terran EP total at 22 so that what the Terran player has available for turn 2. I built 2 settlements for 6 EPs and 10 EPs for maintenance. Current remaining EPs : 6

|189||9/14/2020 6:10:00 PM||Turn 2||Pereen||Message||
Karoly, please check your move. I think you short changed yourself when resetting EP remaining, and then you'll have to pay for the settlement costs. Thanks!

I haven't tested using any of the newer versions of Vassal, as they have been in flux (many updates within several months). Figured I'd wait until the beginning of 2021 to dive into it.
I suspect that there is backwards compatibility. However, if somebody modified the module using a newer version, there will be some point where you will need the new version of Vassal to use it. So the threat is more based upon the developer's usage rather than the gamer's usage.
|186||9/14/2020 9:39:00 AM||Turn 2||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
Has the mod been tested with the latest vassal version? I know a few mods have broken because of some of the changes. Don't want to upgrade if it's going to affect our game.
|185||9/14/2020 8:55:00 AM||Turn 2||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
Added a fix log (11a) to adjust the settlement placement. Otherwise it's the Terran move.
|184||9/11/2020 11:48:00 AM||Turn 2||Pereen||Message||
Go ahead and make the update at your earliest convenience.
|183||9/7/2020 1:49:00 PM||Turn 2||Pereen||Message||
Hi ... Delta Pavonis is a Gwynhyfarr settlement but does not have a Base counter within that system.
Epsilon Indi would be within range, and helps you climb the eliptical.
Gwyn has 6 bases to build and Terrans 4 to build out the range of their possible settlements. Terrans and Pereen can do so by being within web link line of communications. So that's probably why Terrans don't get as many bases.
|182||9/7/2020 1:27:00 PM||Turn 2||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
I also no realize the from a base part. Does that mean Delta Pavonis is not settled? Because I thought we owned the systems we start with, no need to settle. If I can't however settle from the owned spaces, and there needs to be a base that means I can't get to Sigma Draconis either. In which case I think Epsilon Indi will be where the settle 1 should move.
|181||9/7/2020 1:23:00 PM||Turn 2||Gwynhyfarr||Message||
Sorry just catching up on this. So I can't settle Chi Draconis from Delta Pavonis? If not I will settle Sigma Draconis instead. Sorry for the confusion.
|180||9/6/2020 5:06:00 PM||Turn 2||Pereen||Message||
Looking at this a little closer. I think this is actually a repeat of the last game's mistake. Rule 6.22 indicates that the Gwynhyfarr settlement is based upon range from a base. Current Gwyn bases are LFT 1747 (at -14) and Gamma Pavonis (also at -14).
Recommend adjusting the Chi Draconis settlement 1 to Delta Pavonis (at -9), as there's a Heavy Fleet there.
The distance from 61 Cygni to Chi Draconis is correct. However, the button that opens the settlement range lines for Cygni is pretty crammed in and may have been used for LFT 1747. I tried to place those buttons in line with the systems name.
|179||9/6/2020 11:46:00 AM||Turn 2||Pereen||Message||
Settlement was played as part of log 5.
The map graphic showed that the range was only 9.
Either later today or sometime tomorrow, I'll update the graphic for ranges coming from 61 Cygni, and then Gwynhyfarr can make an adjustment.
Please keep an eye out for similar range errors on the settlement range pop-ups. It was tedious work to do those, so there are likely some concentration errors.
|178||9/6/2020 11:41:00 AM||Turn 2||Terran||Message||
Yes, no harm here.
|177||9/6/2020 11:40:00 AM||Turn 2||Pereen||Message||
Agreed. Let's fix this before continuing, as we haven't gone too far.
|176||9/6/2020 11:30:00 AM||Turn 2||Terran||Message||
Still don't understand how it is possible for Gwynhyfarr to settle Chi Draconis at +13. All their systems are far below the ecliptic. Maybe there is a confusion with the set up at Delta Pavonis versus Sigma Draconis. Maybe I miss something here.
