Seeing as there is a little bit of interest in starting again, we need to first decide on some things.
Next, we decide on the timeframe, Map is going to be the Earth.

Good to know the things still rolls :)

I wouldn't participate though, most likely.

Oh no, more things to eat up my time...

If more people reply, I'm in. Although I wouldn't mind a few changes to the map. Maybe stretch some of the continents and make a land bridge or two so expansion makes more sense.

I am interested but I think Nations Game works best on real life world map. Everyone knows all the places immediately and small locations (islands, straits, mountain ranges etc. ), natural resources and climates can be easily googled. Distances and sense of scale also work great on world map compared to maps made by users.

Usually the same concepts can be applied to any map, such as large initial expansion around rivers, lakes, and deltas. Though a return to a normal map wouldn't be too bad. Maybe we could flip it upside down to shake things up.

Honestly I'd love an excuse to mess around in MS Paint again. With summer on the horizon, hopefully we can get a big group going. Oi, VoyagerOne, Pilot, LNM, join the cult again. You know you want to.

It's 3:33AM in my timezone. Ech.

There are 6 votes already and only 4 people have answered here and showed their interest. Hope those who vote also answer so we know if people are only randomly voting or are actually interested in playing.

here's the thing, it tallies total votes. I've let people vote for both at once if they want them both

I voted for Earth and other, specifically upside down Earth.

I would be willing to go for something else in the same style as the old map, with rivers and everything. Trouble is, does anyone know where the original map came from? That format specifically is really nice for fleshing out borders and expansion.

You could always just re-download the original un-edited version, I'm sure there is one somewhere.

As for my participation, I'm not ruling it out, however, real life is certainly a limiting factor for myself at the moment so wouldn't be the most active person like previous iterations (as you can see from the fact today is my first series of posts in 3 weeks!)

My preference would just be a normal earth, when we tried an unrealistic on in the past, participation was certainly worse. After all, we all know the real world!

Should we wait for more people to weigh in on the poll or just go for it? Also, since this is a discussion thread, should we start a new topic when it starts?

Yes we should. I don't know if I should moderate though

just go for earth
It has over 3/4 of the voters already.
Also, can we get the rules posted again, please?

We keep discussing moderators but there's never been any use for one because if anyone does something dumb we just boot them out and ignore their map revisions.

Whoever makes the topic (probably me) can dig up the rules from the previous thread. We should probably discuss some other things such as how quickly time advances with respect to real time before we start though. Also start date. I'm honestly down for anything but we should reach a consensus.

Pilot, hope to see you out there if you can. Other veterans would be nice, we've already got APDAF too. Do I count? I think I count :mrgreen:

new poll, decide on the starting time period. Again, vote for any and all time periods you'd like

Most games in this were post 1800 it seemed to be the most reasonable.
