Engineers and Miners violating no attack priveledge

Something I have noticed is Engineers and Miners attacking other ships then claiming you cant attack them back because they are covered from a Do Not Attack clause...

Welp, its simple, if an engineer or Miner attack another ship, they have nullified their ceasefire priveledge. Thus are now subject to normal ship combat until destroyed by any other ship.

The Staff has been instructed that if either are attacked without provocation, then handle the issue as necessary. If they are attacked in retribution, to bad, they broke the cease fire and can be fired upon until killed.


Bombing in Beta

I am not ready to test it yet... Players are going to play with it, thats fine, non-flag worlds can be bombed once they are built up.

If an engineer is building a non-flag planet and is actively in orbit of that planet and asks a bomber to not bomb, then the bomber is to leave the planet alone until it is finished and the engineer is no longer in orbit.


Building in Beta

Build flag planets first.
Optionally you may build rare resource planets as long as they do not have defense structures that attack mining ships until all flag planets are fully built. Rare Resources are considered: Hyper Matter, Dark Matter, Uridium

Once all Flag planets initially reach 30 structures, building defense structures on rare resource planets is permitted.


Flag Planets

In beta each faction should be permitted to have atleast 1 flag, if possible allow each faction to have as close to an equal share of flags as possible.


Capturing Planets

Normal invasion and capping of non-flag planets (including non-flag rare resource planets) is permitted. In the case of rare-resources, building of defense structure rule is still in effect.

Point Defense shooting down of Troop Pods and Bombs are permitted at all times and do not violate a engineer or miners non-aggression protection clause.


Special Case Rules

Only an admin can excuse or augment these rules, If an admin needs to test something, they can give a moretorium for the period of time they are testing. At the end of their testing, normal rules and restrictions are placed back into effect.


If people continue to abuse or violate these rules and those included in the Beta Testing Guide and RoC, then those accounts will have their beta pres reset to 0 and will no longer be given free prestige.

Should we continue to have issues, the I will simply switch back off the free trial flag that allows everyone to play on beta and noone will have over a scout unless an admin gives individual permission. Switching of flags will be at admins discretion and when "they feel like it", so could take days.

I think bumps, unfortunately, assume that people read forums, and I would hazard a guess that the people you wish to reach with the bumps are exactly the people who will not be reading this.

Sad, but probably true.

Still, don't let me discourage you.

Post count? Who really cares, there aren't ranks as far as I can tell...bumping so that people hitting lobby->darkspace beta will see this at the top, and maybe even read it...
Midshipmen still need Engineering or Supply Ships
