Gentlemen, I'd like you to finalize orders by 27.11.20 so we can run the first turn.

The first turn is completed! The macro worked smoothly, no error messages (I am surprised). Check your reports. The map is unchanged, since all the ships are "landed" yet, so not much to look at yet, but now you can refuel and take-off.

Note about the report files:
1) The "Units" sheet contains only the ships which either belong to you, or which you see on the map. In other words, landed ships of another player are not shown there.
2) The "Balance" sheet contains notes like "Order #3", and the order number "#3" in this context is not the sequential number from your googlesheet, but the number of the row of the order from the sheet "Orders" in the report file (your orders from the googlesheet are copied there). It is so for easier check.

Now, I am ready (and eager) to run the macro again, and some players have already programmed their turns forward. Write/check your orders for the second turn. As soon as you are ready, send me PM that you have done the orders. The deadline will be now 02.12.20, however if all the players are ready sooner, the turn will be completed sooner.

Re: Announcements
The second turn is completed! There were some bugs now, but I found them quickly. Also I discovered some strange behavior of Excel on the Goggle Drive. Nevertheless, we are proceeding. Please check if everything is OK.

Remember, there can be multiple ships in one hex and in order to see them all one has to move the icons manually.

The deadline will be now 08.12.20, however if all the players are ready sooner, the turn will be completed sooner.

Re: Announcements
I noticed I didn't set deadline for the orders for the Turn 4.
Would everyone get ready by 23 Dec 18:00 UTC?

Re: Announcements
Turn 5 had been processed.

'Weyland-Yutani Corporation' leaves the game.
A new corporation 'Pineapple' (abbreviation 'P42') joins the game.

We probably might delay the next turn for some time because one of the players was hospitalized; however as usually you are encouraged to send your orders in advance. The preliminary due date is 11.01.21.

Re: Announcements
Turn 6 had been processed; please check the data.

I found few bugs, fixed them.
One important note about landing (added in the FAQ): "In order to start landing procedure, a ship must start its turn in the orbit hex".

Please update your orders for the turn 7 by 23.01.21 EOD.
