Welcome to our newest warriors, Khanbalyk, Treiglad, Admiral Prescott, and CraigHB!
Not sure if we broke a record but it's been a rainy Summer in Belgium as well, at least some regions were flooded though nothing exceptional
There's been record rainfall here in VT for the last month and half or so. I like the rain, so I've been enjoying it. Keeps the heat down too.
As advertised, my latest game was only 214k, but it was fairly fun doing it. The tedium was kept to a minimum because of the low planet count. I might as well go for my racial medal as well, so I might try some smaller map strategies based on heavy tech. Game time might be at a premium, but it's not totally unavailable.
I couldnt get the racial medal to show up, even though I seem to have completed games with all the requisite races. Not sure what is up with it. I'm enjoying my current lower planet count map too.
I've been trying out my latest Swindle tweaks in my current game, just a huge - common habitable planet map, but results are very encouraging:
YR2 - 200900
YR3 - 290850
YR4 - 348600
I'll probably take it to 6 years and get about 410k. This is with only 264 habitable planets. I have it down to the point where I can eliminate all the AIs by the end of year 1.
Special thanks to Motti for some hints a while back that I fiddled around with.

Who rembers the 2006 NH Floods?
It wasnt nearly so bad here in VT. Sentient species taste better...
