Restarting NC in 2012/13/14/15 clearly doesn't work. I've always found the best part of NC to be whenever we get going and colonisation and the like occurs. Hence, I've decided to create a new game on the spacebattles forum. Game will start in 2115, you'll be able to choose your own worlds/species. Once we have enough interest (say about 8 or 9 people) we'll launch. Hopefully within a day.
Game will be hosted in this forum. http://forums.spacebattles.com/forums/story-debates-play-by-post-games.10/
Game will be launching at 13:00 GMT 24th May 2015
