In 13th year of the colony, I have (according to ADU, save file reported as corrupted) 2,345 colonists total, including 1,237 students (minors) and 854 workers. No one retired, no one homeless. What bothers me is that the health bar of the colony is at 10 % and no matter how many Large Medical Clinic is in the colony (currently 10) it does not move up. LMC's are next to residential buildings and are fully staffed as far as I know. So medical coverage is at ca. 25,6 %. Also, no residential building shows any problem with medical coverage. I wonder whether babies are counted with med's calculation and if so can they properly use medical facilities?

Coloniae gives us now an information about how we play My Colony. Just look at those yummy cookies, I mean charts, isn't they simply gorgeous?: Game Stats.

For example it can be seen now under "Civilizations" link that United Earth still holds firmly as the most popular faction with over 76 % of all colonies. League of Independent States occupy the second place with little more than 10 %. And mighty Zolarg Empire stands in the proud third place with well over 9 % of all inhabited space.

And the sum of the population of all online colonies stays at 1.147.599.333 colonists. Compare it to estimated real population of our old good Earth: 7.794.798.739 and counting! (data: Worldometer)

ACC 7-7: Changes

What a sitting was yesterday in Colonial Assembly! Chair tried to calm down right honourable members of the Assembly, rather in vain, and one could even hear shouts like “treason”, “off with him”, and so on in the debating chamber.

And why all this?

During the yesterday morning session a motion has been proposed to sever ties with Restoria’s metropolis, Commonwealth of homey and changing it to the Commonwealth of Bait. As was stated in the motion paper, there was a risk of lack of effective communication with Commonwealth of homey. Restoria’s Administration was afraid that this state of affairs was dangerous for such a young, small colony like ours.

However not all honourable members of Colonial Assembly shared that view. Those not in an Administration majority accused the rest of – to say it simple – treason. Opposition leader The Hon. Eustace Cary MCA argued that a big part in putting such motion on the table was that there where other High Powers willing to accept colonies under their leadership in exchange for some gifts.

Majority leader The Rt Hon. Elias Coffyn MCA stated that indeed there were gifts involved but not for ruling officers, as was implied by the Opposition, but for the good of the whole Colony. It was – stated Mr Coffyn – a matter of utmost importance to seize such opportunity in the interest of Restoria.

The Opposition, however, seemed to remain extremely critical. Administration asked Chair for a short adjournment. As The Chronicle understands, during this pause, majority leader and Administration’s whip made concerted efforts to ensure unanimity, albeit to no avail.

Finally there was a division in the afternoon which Administration won by 9 votes to 3. No one abstained. Without further a-do the Restoria Allegiance Bill was sent to the Lander for assent and almost at once Chair of the Colonial Assembly received a formal note from the Lander stating that assent was given. Bill became Restoria Allegiance Act.

The events developed onward astonishingly quickly. Formal diplomatic note was sent to the Commonwealth of Bait right after the Lander note was received and it was immediately responded to with acceptance by the Commonwealth of Bait's government. So Restoria became a colony of Commonwealth of Bait. And all that in a matter of fewer than 24 hours!

The Chronicle can disclose now that right after establishing fully-fledged Transmission Hub, a message has been sent to the Commonwealth of homey but there was no answer. This information has been told us by a source close to the Administration on the condition of anonymity.

Dear Colonists,

Although at first sight game looks very simple, it gives us quite a few data which are very stimulating to do some role-playing; or it is just me with some unwanted free time ;)

Initial idea is that this topic will be written from fictional, inside perspective. Please think about some kind of newpaper or something like that. The game offers its internal measure of time – years and months as of now, if I remember correctly – and this way of computing passing time will be used in these writings. It will be noted by acronym ACC (lat. ab colonia condita), as in AUC (lat. ab urbe condita).

Also please acknowledge fact that I am not an English native speaker. So please do not hesitate to correct me if I am wrong. This topic is also meant to be my incentive to start to write in English, therefore correcting me you will in fact help me to improve my ability to effectively use this new lingua franca.

I would like to say thank you to @bastecklein for creating this surprisingly wonderful game and to @IzDaBait for assurance that this forum is the place to go with planned content. And for all Colonists who helped me right in the beginning of my first game. You are simply wonderful community!

Uff. That was long. If you still are here I congratulate ;)

So, off we go!

GeneralWadaling thank you for your work. It is evidently plan devised with a lot of work. I saute to you!

Saying all that I, complete newbie, would rather ask for not developing United Earth as an evil empire. It may have been in the past - and forcing League of Independent States to secede if I understand lore correctly - but I like to think that those times are over, as they are a closed period in U.E. history. You see, Restoria, L.I.S. in its nucleus, just agreed to pledge allegiance to the Commonwealth of Bait, of rather U.E. ancestry ;)
