In real life, Franciscus is a healer. His life is dedicated to saving and prolonging lives. How noble! :love: Furthermore, I have been able to glimpse the strength, wisdom, and compassion of the man behind the avatar.

Nice catch. Perhaps we should open a subsection in the PoN wiki to have minor suggestions for future patches. Minor stuff that the developers or users can see and edit and then perhaps get them accepted for an official patch. Great idea, Kensai! :) [...] The other thing I wondered about is the situ...

Thanks to AGEod

I wanted to take a moment to publicly express my thanks to AGEod, and particularly to Pocus, Lodilefty, and Markshot for the kindness and compassion extended to me recently. As everyone knows, Pocus is the lead developer for AGEod. Because of this, he is extremely busy, all of the time. Even so, you...

I'm a bit embarrassed to post this ... :o ... but I can't find the answer in either the Wiki or the Manual. Does anyone have a list of the phases of a turn?

Pregenerated data cache

I wonder if Ilitarist's idea could be used, in a fashion, by creating a cache of pregenerated data files for the next turn. These files would be those things which require a fair amount of processing time, but be independant of player decisions. For example, generating the weather.

A method to speed up your PBEM games

Hobbes and I have developed a way to double the speed of non-hosted PBEM games. I'll call it "bilateral hosting". It's very simple. A player begins the game and sends his turn to his opponent. His opponent makes his response, ends the turn, and then makes his move for the next turn. Next, he saves t...
