Me too! :D

But did we not plan to have players in only 40% of the squares?

Signup to open tomorrow Saturday or earlier - game to start around Monday evening (CET).

Planned code changes:
* Symbiosis now gives +10% to fertility as bonus (up from +7%)
* Plants limited to 4000 per square (this will support ~150 specimens per BS)
* New plant growths: 30%-27%-24%-21%-19%-18%-17% (white to black), no more growth boni for mountains and forests
* saturation bonus for eating "fat" specimens - this bonus will apply to omnivores and carnivores and be in relation to the saturation ratio of the species you attack. Chris is the math guy to explain it :P
* "stomach" saturation limit set at (specimens x BS x 30) and checked every turn
* new, easier incompatible food rules: "Yellow cant attack yellow", no more new incompatibilities added when BS increases
* more feedback and fixes of text glitches

See you in MOJAVE ! 8)

Did you read the entire text of the link?
The game is not setup yet, so the link does not work. Its coming today though. ;)

MOJAVE is now setup and the signup link should work.

Game is 6x6 and will handle up to 18 players - first come first served.

10 minute turns, start on Monday evening (CET) - thats the plan at least. :P

I just signed in and got #26, but there is nobody else signed in (empty highscore list). This means a bug or simply I'm the 1st one?

If the last is true - then I claim the victory for MOJAVE round (as Korexus stated that anyone can claim the victory) :D
