Yup, specs say the charger is capable of 30W max... would love to kill-a-watt it and see what it actually uses. Guessing 15-20W. Tempted to pay dedicated host, but I am using this to learn a few things too. Want to compile to 0 bit depth... still reading about it.
As far as coordination, I am still in hardware test mode. There is no serious game on there now.
If I do long term host, do have a lot of details to work out. Set up players ahead of time, set start and end date with set goals for victory. Want to see if the scenario engine can be used to enforce rules as well... looks like it can. (We can forbid adding cities... thats a great start on it's own!)
What I mean by goals. Max income in final year, profit in final year, etc... would like to see profit added to the player switcher.. better indicator of player health than bank account.
BTW.. I strongly recommend the MOTD file... it makes logging in much prettier!
