This article will be a smaller one probably, this article covers everything in the Colony screen excluding the structures section.

Things that MUST be included:

-Explanation of the "My Colony" view of all your buildings.
-Detailed explanation of the management screen and how the values are calculated there
-Explanation of the function and purpose of the Bonus Resources window.
-Breakdown of what each boost does and at which point in the round / life of a colony each Boost is the most valuable.


Recommended things to include:

-Include a low-res screenshot of the "My Colony" view
-Make sure the management screen section is thorough and easy to comprehend
-Listing the current supporter packages available and the cost per token of each package.

I will accept submissions for this article up to and including Monday as well.

-Andrew

By including images, I'm assuming you mean to attack them in the email? And how would we reference them in the article?

Basically write the guide article as if you were posting it on the forums yourself, that means you need to host the images on a service like imageshack.us or some other image hosting service.

I see that structures show time to build in "time" not ticks. So on a normal speed server 1 hour = 1 tick. But what about a double-speed servers? Will the time to build still be 1 hour making it 1 hour = 2 ticks. Or will it be half of a normal speed server so that it would be only 30 minutes to build.

Did I make sense up there?

The buildtimes for structures are not linked in ANY WAY to the ticks on the server, they are calculated separately.
