DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

Freeciv "gold" (Galactic Milieu)

Most civilised planets within the Galactic Milieu are represented and, at the strategic scale, run using Freeciv.

It is important to note though that in the context of the Galactic Milieu the wealth measure refered to in the Freeciv software as “gold” is taken to be somewhat abstract rather than as representing actual physical stockpiles of actual gold.

In the Galactic Milieu, the so called “gold” tracked by the Freeciv system is taken as a generic abstraction of wealth, influence and favours pertaining to a specific world and not transferable from world to world. One does not ship this so called “gold” from world to world; rather one builds freight or caravans or cargo or some such unit in order to transport wealth from world to world. This so called “gold” is thus rather reminiscent of the “local currency” the Digitalis D'ydii Cluster software attributed to each populated world.

Interfacing this so called “gold” of the Freeciv system with other scales of play and with other goods services and currencies presents some problems in terms of game design, such as those mentioned in the Private sector (Galactic Milieu) article. However as the Freeciv system provides mechanisms for transferring it between players it is technically, and thus naturally, possible for players to engage in trading it for other goods services and currencies. This implies that in principle the ”Freeciv gold” of any planet of the Galactioc Milieu that is represented using Freeciv could be featured in various markets; it is just another of the many in game items available for people to speculate upon, invest in, trade with and for.
