Hi all

That;s great about the huge ore find! If those 12 bodies infected with zombie virus - surprised they are still lying there after awhile now ... but still best to be cautious and we may want to search around. Do zombies turn up as life forms? Maybe if we can detect movement?

As to things we are building - Kench as agreed to build a biowell and a bazaar .... and Leon building nuke and hangar. You might need to tell Brainbot to go ahead and follow through on Kench and Leon orders.

Can we build farms now that Kench unavailable? We just need to allocate workers....

CB - you were going to work on Science Lab... unless you feel something better to work on?

Brainbot: I am issuing work orders based on the requests on Cllrs Kench and Cllr Leon1122.

Additionally it should be noted that I do not have a clear scan into the crater. I cannot detect any presence of alien or dead lifeforms in that area. Also, we have not recorded any recent ship crashes onto the planet. If there is a ship in the crater it predates our arrival to Ynbar, unless it was a cloaked vessel that crashed.
Nah, I'll work on science lab.

PHASE XI - The YnBar Crater-

**Food Crisis** -2 Pop, -2 Health, -2 Morale.
We only made enough food to feed 800 people. 200 People have died from starvation, fighting for food. There are long lines at the cafeterias and many were turned away.

**We have built a Nuke! -(1) Steel, -(1) Uranium.
**We have Launched a Nuke**

**We have built Harvesters ** -300 Steel

**We have built a hangar** -1200 Steel

**DS5 has arrived**
**Croatia has Discovered Teleporters**
**Croatia has entered the Transcendent Era**

**We have searched the Crater**

Crisis Card - YnBar Crater

- Natural Wonder -
You have discovered the Crater on YnBar was made when a Comet hit the planet 1.8 billion years ago. This likely cooled the planet and dispersed massive amounts of Hydrogren into the atmosphere which created the ocean. The Crater imparts major scientific benefits to the planet and will generate new research. At the bottom of the crater we found a crashed ship from several decades ago. The skeletal remains are not undead.

Benefits: +1 Science, +1 Credits, +4 Serbium per phase.

-The Battle of CHXR-

The SpaceX battleships settle into orbital formation over CHXR. From above the planet is now beautiful. Crisp new oceans, dense forests, snow capped peaks, and vast tunnels.

Message from Admiral Ghug: Now people of Ynbar, you can observe what will be coming for you next. The Prawn are a pest. It is time to bid them farewell.

Message from Odunlade: I surrender. If you must kill me, know that I abhor violence and wanted a peaceful resolution. Had I not come on this mission SpaceX planned to assassinate you. I bought you time. I would like to go home and tell my people we have declared war on SpaceX.

(Decision, let him leave, attack them, capture their ship and apprehend)

Order of business

H+H Allocations:
##Healt..... ousing budg.....location:
- give 200 steel to defe......partment
- build Extra Harve....... 300 steel
- build a Baz.......h 30 workers, 300 steel and 500 cred.......sing 1 petrified wood as lux....
- ...ild a Biowell with 400 stee...

Given th.....are no longer crea.....g any steel, I wi.......eep my 800 for now. If an.......lse needs to 1500 credits, just ask!

Result: Harvesters built
**System could not interpret Allocation**

(Clarification: Crater Magnetic interference scrambled this message. The only part the system affirmatively understood was harvesters as it was also requested by a specialist. The bazaar was mentioned by only blades as the system understood it. Baz was not enough to know if H+H was affirmatively confirming this. H+H emerged from crater but never reaffirmed definitively what they had allocated in a clear understandable manner. Brainbot system can anticipate orders but your new system of government and the removal of proposals to complete tasks has rendered your current brainbot woefully inefficient at reading minds.)
Proposal 10.1 Build Nuke


Proposal 10.3 Nuke Flagship, launch Battleship and 1 fighter to join the battle.


Defense Allocation

If the health and housing department (Kench) is able to transfer 200 steel, I will build the hanger as General Jadran suggested. Otherwise, I hold the remaining 1000 steel until next phase.

Approved Nuke built, Launched. Hangar Built, Jadran builds a fighter.

President attempts to build
Science Lab: 3000 Steel, 1400 Credits, (3) Ore, 300 Workers. Takes three phases to build. Improves Scientist abilities to rush technologies. Allows research agreements. Allows Tech level 4 technologies to be researched. Scientist can spend a phase and upgrade themself in focus on a study: Botany, Marine Biology, Ecology, Astronomy, Physics, Chemistry, Alien Sciences, Cyborg Science.

Insufficient Workforce
Insufficient Steel
Cannot Begin Project

Population (8) -2.
200 citizens of Ynbar have starved to death.

Food (-2) +4 Harvesters, +2 Fishing, +1 Recyclers, +1 Farming, = 8 FOOD to feed 10 pop.

Morale (12) +6 Destroying SpaceX flagship
-2 starvation.

Health (7) -2 Starvation

Uranium (3) -1 Nuke
Ynbarium (11) +4
Opium (1)
Petrified wood (2)

Fuel (3) +3 Turbines -2 Launching Nuke to CHXR. -2 Sending Battleship Belgrade -2 Sending Ftr. (Prawn are refueling us for helping)

Steel- 1500 (-1 Nuke, -1.2 from Hangar)
(We arent producing Steel)

Credits- 8500
(+3 From Turbines)(+1 Crater)

Scientific Research : (+1)

Space Ships: (3 fighters, 1 battleship)
Vehicles: (6 harvesters, 3 jeeps)

Weapons: (+1 plasma weapons, emp weapons, ARC, Terraformer)

Approval : 68% Citizens have starved to death and are losing faith in the council.

Literacy: 69% Many of our newer colonists are lacking in basic reading.

Presidential Approval: 39% Many voters feel they should have voted for Jadran who had a clear plan for food management.

Labor available: 689/800
(Many personnell were on holiday last phase. )

-1 year progress overview-

Military Grade: A-, we are stronger than most neighbors and our enemies fear us.

Science Grade: C- We are falling behind our friends and neighbors.

Luxury Grade: D, we are not trading with anyone. The people are bored.

Economy Grade: C, we are not making much money.

Strategic Resources: A-, we have the ability to make Nukes, Teleporters, Battleships but we lack a steel source.

Work Development: B-, We have made many advanced building projects, we have developed Ynbar but we lost some buildings, and we have not developed our planet.

System Upgrade
Brainbot can be upgraded by Croatian Science if we want it. They offer for free as a show of good faith among allies.

Brainbot will become Rańćunar a highly advanced supercomputer with universal translator.

My system will simplify build options into suggestions based on need. This looks pretty slick. Like going from a Buick to a Maclaren. My diagnostics will be available at any time for perusal based on what any policy/propsal will produce by issuing the command ##Diagnostic. I am capable of translating all messages. I also will be able to list friendly factions luxuries and science advancements upon request by simply asking (##Croatia Information) for example.

(Accept upgrade offer or Decline)

(3) Unread Messages

1) Rattatat Skaregg King: We offer you peace and advanced tech in exchange for housing 3 pop somewhere anywhere.

2) Macedonia: We offer you (5) Steel for (5) Food. Were overpopulated a bit.

3) Bulgaria: We would like Greater Terraform in exchange we will give you (2) Pop, and (4) Food. We have no room for people and your colony is liked by our people.

Friends, thanks you. We are friends now. What you want me do with surrendered ship? Ship make good scrap and tech!

Skareeg good pilots, good spies! We have tech you like, we get more too. You help Skareeg, Skareeg help you!
Prop 11.1 accept upgrade offer
Prop 11.2 Devote ALL resources toward food production. (Allocate work and build instructions in this area as a sub prop)
-Defense Department please focus on maintaining order and ensure security personnel and their immediate families are fed first.
-Health and Housing Department you have my support to build whatever you deem nessecary to the growth in food supplies.

##Brainbot- Can we fish again? Can we improve fishing? I need ALL information on fishing related tech and what restrictions on fishing we have.
Prop 11.3 Capture Odunlade's ship. Imprison him in a humane and respectful manner. Prop 11.3.1 Notify UNECP we have taken Odunlade prisoner and offe to hand him over at their request.
Prop 11.4 Allow Skareeg to settle on CHRX with prawn to assist the prawn in their advancing colony. (express that we simply do not have enough food to support 3 pop)
(sorry i wasnt as involved last phase my phone broke so could only be on between shifts at work, I am back now however and we have a phase with manageable problems for once.)
**people of Ynbar**

We have deflected yet another belligerent faction. It came at a great price however as our nation was ill equipped to sustain our population. I want the people to know that this administration will not settle for anything less than what you deserve and are working hard to find a means to feed our families. I ask that we work together, and stay gainfully employed to see our nation grow and prosper. With allies all around us and the enemies that once threatened us now destroyed we stand ready for the forward movement of a population ready for triumph. What we can ALL do to help is simple albeit a commitment:
Recycle , do not throw away scraps, bring them to our farms as a way to increase yields.
Eat all that you can, do not leave even the smallest edible scrap on your plate. If you can not finish your food give it to a friend or family member. Waste is unacceptable.
Follow the lead of Councilor Kench and the health and housing department as they work hard this phase to find food for our people.
Never give up, there is always hope and withe the team we have here on Ynbar i am confident we can get through this.
##Brainnbot please advice the affects of my speech

##Brainbot i want to spend this phase among the people, going room to room and hearing about their lives here on Ynbar and what they did back home.
-I will be accompanied at all times by 5 of my loyal secret service
-I want to have a document of the most interesting people in our colony put together, these people may be up for promotion at the councils suggestion.

This administration will be one of the people.

##Brainbot- Can we fish again? Can we improve fishing? I need ALL information on fishing related tech and what restrictions on fishing we have.

Technically yes.

We have two options, we can send additional fishermen out to fish whales. 30 workers will add +4 food per phase if we begin whaling. There are 117 whales alive on our planet. Each whale caught adds +4 food.

Our other option is to research offshore colony and devote our faction to living on the sea with our colony. Itll add a ton of food doing this since theres tons more food and marine life than in the desert. As long as were not too far offshore we keep our land benefits or we can build a monorail back to land.

We should prioritize food. Lets get food. Farms are cheap. We can build 2 with 60 ppl and get +2. We should stop using steel until we get a way to fix our steel production shortfall. So id say we either trade, build mines, or get nuclear reactor and shoot for conversion of uranium to steel.

An interesting angle we could take to get to tech level 4 is to steal it. This involves blade agreeing to go on the space station and to essentially have the skaregg try to hack them and blade installs a spyware program on there.

Our terraformer indicates that we could terraform our moon for purely steel production and build tons of mines on it.
