I have been playing now for about a couple weeks and I am really dissapointed by the methods of communication in this game. Messages are decent, even though they are purged regularly.. however the lack of a live messaging system or even something like a simple tagboard bothers me. The place where this kind of feature should be present the most, I find is present the least: Alliances.

It is not exactly easy to communicate to your Alliance as a whole. Scenario: You get attacked. Hard. Your fleet is decimated, but you trashed the other guy's pretty well. You need to get in touch with as many people in your Alliance as possible to send a counterattack. Damn! What do I do? I have to individually write down every member of my Alliance's screen name and copy and paste a new message to every single Alliance member to get the word out. What a hassle!

I propose, for Alliance, instill some sort of tag board system, where all members can view and post in regularly (with a purge time of something like a week... I would actually like to know if I leave town for a couple days and an enemy alliance destroys my homies and they post about it.). I feel this would facilitate better communication and make this game feel more social than the current, fairly claustrophobic single player experience.

Your adoring player,


P.S. Maybe a chatroom as well? IRC or something, Java would probably be easy. There's a lot of online players, couldn't hurt to get them chatting and get live input on the game while they chatter.

There is an option called "mass message" it's avaible for the leadder and the generals. It's not bad idea , but the game have an official IRC channel (#bulfleet @ UniBG Netowkr), that you can communicate with the other players free.
I'd rather feel PAIN ...

I take your point, Arcko, an alliance chat would be a great addition to the game. About the board system-well, it depends on your alliance leader. Some Bulfleet alliances have their own websites and most of them also have forums there, which could be used for better comunication. Another thing- some players have MSN or Skype accounts. You may ask them about it so you can keep it touch.

an IRC channel after description is a good place to put it in the alliance just the members to communicate and an message archive to keep the messages 4-5 hours.

I can make one... unfortunately it would not be in a conventional programming language TGF... you probably havent even heard of it, lol, its supposed to be a game-making program, but it would work until we get something better. Oh and Id need someone to run a server.
Here is a website that I designed for [url=]bad credit cash loans[/url] company.

I must agrea everyone pickes there race on their income bonus and other bonuses. The ships are more of a extra.... well the are unless your the Confederation. I am sorry that tanker is a joke. Why would anyone build a tanker when it cost 4 times as much as a Mega cargo ship and only adds an extra 15k. I would bring more balance for everyone to get their own Combat ship and Battleship. Maybe even toss out the tanker. I do hope to see the races getting a new ship to go on top of their old ship.
