Currently I think the plan is to start a game on the 21st.
The game will be from 1PM est - 5PM est
If people think this should be shorter, longer, or slightly bumped up or down you can mention that here.
Your signup should look like this:
color: (row), (column)
Here's my signup as an example:
Color: 2, 3
here is a reference for the colors, with 2, 3 being highlighted
Edit: I'll include some settings/rules info as well
There will be no fallen empires, no advanced AI, AI will be at normal difficulty. FTL is restricted to hyperlanes only, and using jump drives on your ships is disallowed (The AI still can, but there probably won't be much AI by the time jump drives are a thing).
Size of galaxy depends on how many players sign up but at minimum it would be 600, with 800 being probable.
CURRENT SIGN UPS:
Guren275: 2, 3
NoOnes: 3, 4
Markoni: 3, 2
Holoween: 5, 5
Otto: 3, 1
nico: 1, 1
