  1. Going good Rednas!! thanks for asking!! I’m still working making deliveries of things that are critically needed. Just last night we delivered a load of medical supplies and ppe to Queens NY.
  2. ...... somewhere in Northern Africa in a Libyan war bunker....... dammit!!!! I want those Irish 🐑 DEAD!!! Yelled Air Marshall As-Sasuni. Send a telegram to our Egyptian friends and ask them to redouble their efforts and I don’t want to hear excuses about losses inflicted by the allies of the Irish 🐑 on their bases. Air Marshal As-Sasuni’s aide immediately went to work leaving his office leaving the Air Marshal staring at his war map in disbelief shaking his head and muttering under his breath. “ who knew fuzzy 🐑 could fight so hard. 🤣
  3. You too Bud!! We are doing our part and running down this virus under the wheels of my big truck 😁
  4. Looks like this covid19 thing is gonna get worse before it gets better. Many of us here have been playing RTG games for over 30 years which makes most of us 50+ or more. Please make sure you guys are extra careful. We just happen to be at an age that makes us more vulnerable to this thing. I for one would like to see all of playing for another 30 years. 😊.
  5. Tink tink tink !! sir!!! Egyptian planes are dropping bombs on us. All units reporting in as combat effective Sir!! Keep those guns pointed at those Libyans cowering in the mountains. They will soon work up the courage to make an assault. Now bring me a cigar!! I got some smoking to do!! And while your at it pour me a pint!! I guess you did get your Egyptian friends to join the fight!!! Come one come all!! now come your strikes and your attack which will be tossed aside like yesterday’s garbage. you can have this city when you pry it from our cold dead hooves. 😁
  6. Even pop groups of an another position? Hmmm somehow I don’t think that’s the way it’s supposed to work?
  7. I believe PFD only ‘cloaks’ the pop group it’s built into. I could be wrong but it’s been a looooong time. Cloaks on ships never worked properly and were phased out on ships and migrated to planetary installations.
  8. That’s an intriguing idea but will add a level of complexity to a code that is already over 20 years old. I know how much Pete likes the idea of opening up the hood and tinkering let alone adding a whole new supercharger system to an engine that already has millions of miles on it 🤣
  9. Better bring bigger guns MarklenX!! those pop guns you brought to this fight aren’t gonna cut it. 😈 the 🐑 are ready for the long siege and have donned their Alabama 🦌 tick costumes in preparation for the expected Libyan attacks. You might even have to enlist your Egyptian friends. Your gonna need em. 🤣 Long live the 🐑 Baaaaaaahahahaha!
  10. Libyan ...Egyptian it’s all the same. it’s hard to keep track when so many planes attack. And I don’t think so that it’s one turn of air production unless your talking HT planes. Yeah go ahead and build those. those things can only drop troops and not bombs or torpedoes. By my count you lost 89 total groups which will take us normal🐑 heathens 9 turns to replace. I’m pretty sure that the almighty Libyans will take just as long BUT by that time the game will be over. Of course you may have other planes but your not gonna use that site again I assure you. At least not right away. baaaaahahahha😈. oh and next time don’t gamble with the 🐑. We are a vicious warlike bloodthirsty bunch dontchaknow. 🤣.
  11. News from the front!! The Libyan and Egyptian war machines made their presence known in the Irish held port city of xBilbao. Thousands of Libyan and Egyptian warplanes conducted maritime strikes on Irish shipping docked there targeting auxiliary ships. The destruction was nearly complete as nearly all Irish transports minesweepers and tenders were sent to the bottom. Irish Corsairs operating off carriers tried to stop the slaughter and acquitted themselves well but there were just too many attackers. After the assault Irish carriers were ordered to get underway and immediately ran into a minefield and Libyan submarines laying in ambush. After a vicious fight the fleeing carriers destroyed many of the attacking submarines and escaped. The attacks weren’t over however as the Egyptians followed the oil slicks from the damaged Irish carriers and attacked again. More Irish carriers met their doom but many finally made good their escape. A couple short weeks later the Irish extracted a small measure of vengeance by conducting their own strikes on the ports of xValencia and xMarsellies and succeeded in sinking 39 of 49 Libyan transports and 7 Queen Mary’s plus 2 more Queen Mary’s heavily damaged belonging to Egypt. The vengeance wasn’t over however as British 🐑 paratroopers working on intel given to them by his Irish allies attacked and captured a MAJOR Libyan airbase in the Iberian peninsula. Nearly 4 months of max aircraft production was lost by Libya in one nightmarish attack by vicious warlike bloodthirsty 🐑 The battle rages on!!!! 😈 baaaaahahaha!
  12. Too late!! They not only ate the choice grass but every single aircraft lined up on the huge runway at an airbase of one of the 5. Long live the 🐑!!! Bahahahaha🤣
  13. Ominous storm clouds are gathering over the horizon.... wait those aren’t clouds!! ..... they are the fuzzy coats of thousands of battle hardened savage warlike bloodthirsty 🐑 marauders. Quick hide the choice grass!!! 🤣
  14. That was a good read Hobknob. there was one item I’d like to see eventually as well. It’s listed on everyone’s starting RTD but in all my years of playing have never seen one much like that energy sapper creature. Has anyone ever seen a ‘Special Religious’. Apparently it’s a type of ground unit which would fit right in with The Fremen Hordes. 😈
  15. Your a good egg MarklenX 😁
  16. Like you said it’s the propaganda ministry😁 perhaps you’re nation hasn’t ( I’m assuming Libya) but can the same be said about the rest of your alliance? Plus how I feel about an aspect of the game doesn’t change anything about it. It is what it is. Very early drops change things drastically. France and Switzerland gave up the ghost rather early in this game. This allowed Italy to dominate for a good portion of the mid game. I hear there was some kind of truce between your group and theirs which allowed quite a buildup with little to no challenges. Libyan advances were written in stone as no nation can fight a 2 or 3 front war and expect to prevail. That’s exactly what Portugal and Spain had to deal with and as you can see the result was predictable. in game 102 we have conquered 10 IMDL10 cities and the resources to support them. That doesn’t include the 9 in our home country. With no real opposition we will just continue to build and build and do exactly what your doing in 101. Unfortunately we were able to do this because a few nations decided that the loss of one nations army and airforce was enough to cause all of them to drop 😡 Btw. We 🐑 give you this one chance to surrender and avoid the humiliation of hordes of us eating up all your choice grass. 😈
  17. it wasnt exactly by ourselves was it? Your buddy Egypt got into it too. all good though. The initial encounters didnt go well for either side but that was to be expected. Although the loss of at least 7 Queen Mary's and the heavy damage on a few more had to sting just a little. It would take nearly till the end of the game to replace those. Our losses can be replaced much much sooner( even the CV losses). Still I now know why you guys wanted to extend the game. It's a forgone conclusion as to who would emerge victorious as we wouldnt be able to fight a war of attrition. You guys have just been rolling over computer positions for far too long without incurring losses unlike our side. Its one of the unbalancing aspects of the game that cant be remedied any time soon I'm afraid.
  18. Welcome aboard Steerpike!!! yes Thursday after the Tuesday due date is usually the day we get results back but sometimes it’s Friday and on one very rare occasion we got on Saturday. Sometimes RTG has to deal with RL issues. Sometimes warmongers like myself slow things down by getting involved in big space or land battles 😁. But I can attest that in the 30+ years that I have been playing RTG games not once have they failed to post results for any game they offer. Good luck!! And Godspeed
  19. It sure does. Until an option becomes available( unlikely) that will allow fleets to transfer items carried aboard the ONLY way to do this with any degree of accuracy is to OC items onto a pop ID you control and then LC. In other words You will need a 'forward operating base'. This isnt as tough as it sounds though as this base doesnt need any pop to function. You just need to drop a colony beacon and your golden. This issue is really a pain though if there are no orbits to drop a beacon on. if your in a nexus forgetaboutit.
  20. No info on those 2 Hobo. Send an in game message and see if you get a response. also park your ships next to theirs and see if they move. If nothing for a few turns then it’s a high probability that the lights are on but no one is home 😈
  21. I believe the fleet you split off will fill up their bays with whatever ordnance is available. It won’t be based on a percentage
  22. Hmmmmmm is right. That won’t be the only aggression that won’t stand we assure you. We aren’t just your typical run of the mill 🐑 mind you. We are now a battle hardened savage warlike vicious bloodthirsty group of grazers 😈 bring it. we bleat at your supposed might...and laugh a bit too Baaaahaha😁
  23. MarklenX. the western alliance is in.
  24. Waiting to hear from one member of the alliance. So for its 4 yay. 😁
  25. Hey Mark! Im a yes vote on the condition we get to research ‘fat man’ so we can load it on our B-29’s and blow stuff up. 😂 ok still a yes if we can’t 😁 Joe Sanchez(Ireland)
