I'm so sorry about that, it sucks when you delete your link by accident or lose the world, not sure if you guys remember but it happened to me too.
I guess yeah, it would suck for the game to stall, but maybe there could be a better solution. Well, I should've told you guys I'd be at school. Next time I'll do that. :-)

I don't think anyone would mind making exceptions. For example, we know beboy is 13 hours ahead. So if their two hour window happened at 2am their time then that wouldn't be fair. 

In your case, we would propose that if your two hour window falls within school hours the clock would be moved to start when school ends. It would help if you shared your time zone or just provide your "start" time in Central time  

i dont believe the 10 hour window should change.

Haha. I wrote "we" like theres more to me than just me. 

I also wanted to say that I don't need any exceptions because I am usually glued to my phone....which isn't always a good thing!

Isn't 10 hours is long enough to pick up your link?
Seems like it's getting missy in here so I guess I should spend my time and effort for better thing than this?

Let me clear my self: the problem wasn't the gameplay, Its all about humans attitude and I always think that every simple thing can be explained in a more humble way.

So that's it, and goodbye.

@hardgamer (all)
We try to stress that it's important to be able to look in here at least a couple times each day and this is why. I recommend to all, that if you look in and the link is waiting for a player before you, drop a quick note if you will be offline for awhile just in case it comes around to you.
Right now we only have 4 (likely) players plus the government turn so at most it takes 5 days to be your turn again, not quite a week. And that's if everyone takes their turn.

We had considered other rules for pickup but it could easily make the file sit idle for a full day or two. Either that or it could cause confusion. If you (or any) have other ideas, we'd like to hear them.

@Beboy
There's no need to quit over a simple issue like this. It's always going to be tricky at times when different people around the world are trying to take turns with a file. It simply requires patience and understanding. Some people have less patience than others and we are open to other suggestions to solve this issue.

@beboy

I assume you are referring to my posts?  If so then I assure you that my intent is never to be nasty or insulting. I'm confused as to why you think I lacked humility, especially when I forfeited my turn and gave it to hardgamer once he posted. 

Id like to see you stay. This world is meant to be a positive place and I would rather work through any misunderstanding than see you leave. 

I would also like to know more about which posts caused you offense. Feel free to PM me to continue the conversation.

I already read the rules, now I'm just looking which community build to stay, because I will only stay in one.
Which one should I join? I can't really make a choice for me.

@jose

Welcome to the forum!  I'd say you should join the Phoenix Federation if you enjoy Cruel game mode.

if you would rather play harmless then Mayfield is an active community.

Thanks. I prefer cruel as it's a more exciting challenge for me. So I guess I found what I wanted.
Do you guys schedule times for people or is it like a turn based system?

Jose, we use a turn based system. Turns are 24 hours. Did you read the rules on the Trello board link in the first post? It can be very important to be able to look in here at least twice daily, when it isn't your turn. If the player or players before you miss their turn, yours could come up quickly.

Howdy

Can I sign up or are there too many players already?

Also, if you do not join the council are you bound by the protections which they give? Say, I don't want to be part of the Federation, I want to be part of the Barbarian Rebels, am I bound to obey by the no trespassing/theft etc laws the Federation grants for Federation members?

Hey, Invictus! We do have openings and would welcome another player.

By declining joining the federation, you would not be under their protection. It doesn't mean that you would be free to steal etc but more that you would not be protected against theives. The federation sets standard punishment for stealing etc. The Council will investigate a possible theft when requested by a member state. If an unicorporated land is caught stealing then it would be up to the victim to determine the course of punishment. They could choose to enact their revenge without abiding by the limits set forth by law, or simply to enforce the set punishment.
Likewise, a member state could steal from you and the Council *may* decide to not investigate. But if they were proven guilty, then the punishment may *or may not* be limited by the laws. (We really haven't thought it out, yet.)

As you should know, rules for this type of gameplay aren't already laid out and we're still experimenting to see what works. Personally (and neo agrees) that's half the enjoyment of it. Clearly there's always going to be an element of "Gentleman's honor", but we are certainly open to having "Rules for Lawlessness" as well! Why else would there be the possibility of wars?

We definitely distinguish between in-game lawlessness and outright cheating, either in-game or out-of-game. Examples of outright cheating would be using an infinite stone generator or hacking the project file. If you go through the earlier posts here, you might realize that the 'Council' has the power and will to completely obliterate a player's efforts, up to and beyond respawning an entire city. This would only be done for the most aggregious outright cheating.

Don't worry you're fine.
Maybe the problem was on me?
I think I'm just not capable of handling this cruel world. So I better give focus on Mayfield.

I like being the outsider, adds flavor to life both in real life and virtual world 😂.

Could cause some havoc but seeing as how "gentlemans honor" is really what it's more about I couldn't bring myself to destroying or stealing someone else's work (unless it's war 😈).
just let me know when I can take a turn 👍

@beboy: good to know.  Have fun!

@ others:  I'm glad I gave my turn to hardgamer....I now have a much better "idea" for my storeroom.  By idea I mean I found a design on youtube that I liked and will interpret for my own use. 

@ new players: Stanimus replied with the first steps...to read the rules linked to on the first page of the forum thread.  After you have a chance to review them please let us know and we will then put you into the turn order.  

At the moment the turn order is:

Rules are for fools 😂.

Read them, didn't see where it said to post here saying I did, so that's my bad.

i didn't see any restrictions on building materials, I may have missed that too.
