Ahh, my first go was a glorious success! My second ended in an oppressive Medieval theocracy, with everyone cowering behind stone walls to keep the beasts out. Everyone died on my 3rd go.

Planet Arcadia
Atmosphere: Breathable
Gravity: Moderate
Temperature: Cold
Water: Oceans
Resources: Rich

Features:
Edible plants
Useful animals
Monumental ruins
High-tech ruins

Arcadia's alien forests stretch away beneath a blue sky. The colonists live in high-tech cities with buildings sealed against the planet's harsh environment, beside rivers that flow into the planet's oceans. They spend their time pursuing art, leisure, and spiritual fulfilment, while automatic machines take care of their material needs. In the first city stand monuments to the 49 colonists who did not survive the journey, the 43 more who died building the first settlement, and the seedship AI that guided humanity to its new home.

Score
Planet atmosphere: 500
Planet gravity: 500
Planet temperature: 250
Planet water: 500
Planet resources: 500
Survivors after landing: 951
Survivors after settlement construction: 908
Final technology level (Post-Singularity): 3000
Final culture (Post-Scarcity Utopia): 2500
Surviving scientific database × 10: 1200
Surviving cultural database × 10: 1000
Total: 11809

Planet Garden

Temperature: Very hot

Resources: None

Features:
Plant life
Animal life

Garden's impossibly slender alien plants reach kilometres into a pale blue sky. The colonists live in towering stone-walled cities under airtight domes, gathered around water production plants. The cities are dominated by temples to the state religion which controls every aspect of people's lives. In the first city stand monuments to the 30 colonists who did not survive the journey, the 411 more who died building the first settlement, and the seedship AI that guided humanity to its new home.

In keeping with the accurate usage of the "What are you playing?" thread, here's something to do that is neither a game, nor is today Thursday. But it takes about an hour to complete, so thought it sensible to post a day early.

National Numeracy Challenge

We've been asked to complete it at work, to assist with the research. I'm most of the way through now, and it's requiring a surprising amount of brain power (though I was always dreadful at maths).

No doubt the results from this forum would significantly skew the results.

I got 99, I got 1 question wrong. One about percentages, not sure why my brain farted on that, when the previous question was pretty much the same thing with just different numbers.

So Cras, you must have got 2 questions wrong. on the desktop version you can see the question you got wrong, and learn why you got it wrong.
