  Event - Space-Well  

Space-Well event :)
*Summary



2010-03-05

A growing number of reports has just came in. It seems some parties who were previously using toxic materials in food production has now switch over to plastic and heavy metals (ex: melamine and led paint) instead due to the rise in consumption of toxic waste price (thanks to the aliens eating up all the junk). A super-health panic has started that has so far reduce the economy of numerous empires. Consumers now has drastically reduce their purchase of food tablets (yeah they use pills for Lunch & Dinner in the future, talk about instant food eh?). Strangely toxic residues found in the food is typically reversed by the advancements of food suppliments (vitamins) however that doesnt get rid of the heavy metal & plastic.

Various government agencies are working towards resolving this issue, unfortunately it is anyone`s guess when this could be concluded.

Temporary server effect: -20% income/productivity


Final Notes

Alrighty this has officially concluded the Space-Well event. A new event will start shortly, therefore please refer to the thread: Space-Food


2010-03-03

There has been reports that income and productivity has dropped by 20% for a great number of empires thoughout the galaxy. Scientists are still working to figure out why.

2010-03-03

Headlines in GNN (Galactic News Network): A number of scientists concluded that agriculture does not produce nuclear waste therefore the increase of productivity for the agricultural sector is probably caused by faulty findings. However a great number of empires thoughout the galaxy is abandoning their `green` side and taking steps to further increase their industry output... together with a great increase in waste product. So far the aliens are happily eating up our waste... but for how long ?

Temporary server effect: +100% racial industry attributes


Note (Spoiler Warning): A number of people pointed out that agriculture does not produce toxic/nuke waste, although I would argue that in the future the farming industry will be so commercialized that it would pretty much be the same as a factory. Anyhow heres the minor change

2010-03-02

With the worry of waste being taken out of the picture factory and agriculture production for many empires has greatly increased. This is thanks to the aliens importing massive amount of waste both toxic and radiative to feed their population. A growing number of scientist are cautioning numerous governments around the galaxy to take a safer stand with the possibility of giant sized fat aliens going hostile on us sometime in the near future. Unfortunately with the capitalist nature of most empires (and the fact that they place a greater importance on $$$) seems to be ignoring the scientist`s plight. This is understandable

In fact, by not playing now, you`re clearly expecting the event will go away before your turns fill up, so it will be like there was no event.
I hope the effect gets worse before you gotta start spending them >:-D

Fuzzy thats not always true, most of the top players play for the imbalance of the game, but ya the imbalance of the game and the game limits is the downfall of the game, plus the rude GC community at large. However this past 6 months the fourms havent been half bad, hm did rarehunter die off finally lol

Stephen, I think a bit of advertising would be great for GC, if you can make the investment. As I stated in another forum thread, new empires per day has dropped to below 50, from over 400 in mid-2004.

The idea of donation-for-something may significantly imbalance this game. Balance is a very important element that makes this game great...it is a big reason why I and many others play this game.
Should you require funds to advertise this game, I would encourage you to consider how your donation system would impact the balance of the game. It`s one thing for one to succeed in this game because of hard work, it`s another for one to succeed because they happen to be better-off financially.
If you are considering some sort of system, I highly recommend you involve the "experts" of the GC community - the (G)s, (A)s, etc. If you`re trying to advertise for the game, I think that last thing you`d want to do is create a mass exodus of current players but changing the balance in the game.

this effect takes away 20% of your income plus 20% production of anything like food and cgs, so its a pretty negative effect, i hope the next effect makes up for it cause being guard our income is already bad as it is.

Is it 20% from total income regardless of fleet? Or is it 20% of positive income (like a -bonus)?

hmm... advertising for gc ? atm there isnt much of a budget for that, other than putting stuff up for blogs and stuff like that. i guess i could put some donate-for-something up... that might give us room for some marketing budget for gc
