Vote if you think the game should start everyone at social science 6 or not.

Basicaly no.

Players who enter later in a round have a bonus to counterbalance the time they lost from the start but no reason to have a bonus in Bio, or in any science when you start at H+0.
Unless you think we'll to quickly lack of space, in fact i can't say since the map is really different from the old game

If you start at social 1 would you be able to have 1 pop and 1 extra for every level after? If so, I say keep all sciences at 0 to start. Social and bio are only important sciences at start. If as game ages new players start with more pp, then they should be able to develop quickly.

For me either, no need to start bio 6.
It's part of the game to grow and only then see what's going on around you.

Damn I read too fast.
Are we talking bio or social?
Bio, no bonus needed.
The social it is however good I think to keep the "bonus" of letting the population go up to 3 or 5 even if the level of social is below.
But not to start with the social at 5.

On the other hand, from memory, it seems to me that for the latecomers all of the sciences were already increased (I don't know at what level).
With a certain number of PP at the start as well.

After researching the old game:

Social level / population Limit
0 / 5
2 / 6
4 / 7
6 / 8
8 / 9
10 / 10
11 / 11
....

I think it's a good compromise.

Actualy we can go to pop5 with social 0
Then 6 for 6, etc

I's more difficult than in the old game but still playable

I like the original way. Having to push all the way to 6 at the start is way too hard. In this alpha round, all I was able to push for the first several days was social.

0 \ 5
2 \ 6
4 \ 7
6 \ 8
8 \ 9
10 \ 10
11 \ 11
12 \ 12
Etc

This way you only need to push 2 levels to get a social. Then at 11, things are back in step. The game is all about balance and strategy. If it's 0\5, 6\6, all anyone can do for the first several days is push social, there is no strategy, and trying to farm is pretty much impossible.

Vote for the Storeye version.

It may be more difficult if you have a bonus in growth but in the first 5 to 7 days I have been able to work on Bio + Speed in addition of Socials.

An interesting point with the current version is that we could more quickly switch the main planet, but i am not yet sure that it works with the "home planet" concept.
