I have a new surprise for everyone in the form of a new template for the game. This one is very, very different from anything you have seen in the game before.

Ok... Ok...

Everything in the new template is exactly the same as the other templates except for the main screen. That is where the big change is and we want some feed back on it.

No, I am not going to tell you what it is and spoil the surprise.

Now we need everyone to vote on this...

Should we reset the main game before the Christmas Vacation starts? For me this will be on thursday or should we wait til after New Years to restart the game? After New Years we plan on releasing the 0.30 code so everyone can use it.

If you decide not to reset before Christmas then we will install the new template on wednesday and everyone can go to town playing with it.

If you do decide to reset then we will completely erase all of the current game code and upload all new code from my development server and this will also include the new template.

So vote and let us know what you want.

Is this the official start to Main? Is this an Alpha or Beta version.

I say before Xmas, then I can play over the break:)

Really appreciate the effort put into this, PJ:)

Some new ships would be cool, but that would be icing on the cake:P If new ships were to be made, would you need to reset the game?

Yeah, there isn't a ship editor in the admin code. Though we should probably think about doing something like that in the future so new chips can be added and existing ones changed while a game is running.

That's what a reset means. Everything get reset and the game starts with zero players. Everyone has to create a new player and start all over with a different galaxy to play in.

Since there has been numerous changes while the game was playing, it would be actually nice to have a reset and see how these changes work from the beginning.

For example: I have HUGE planets left from when the planet lvls provided the def protection and I have smaller money planets with HUGE def lvls toward the end of the game. It would be nice to play a startup where the planet might be smaller but have enough energy production to actually support decent sd/def lvls.

Is there a mandatory control on planet building with this new code?
