En1gma - whatever you think is best during your term, councilor I like the idea of this game in that, you don't want to be in charge when the game goes down the tubes! Its like a 4X version of hot potato!
En1gma - happy to try to help ... here are the steps Cory posted -- which one are you getting stuck on?
How To Setup a Game for Shared
1. Create a New Game in Star Traders 4X named "Shared Game 1", select Normal + The Garden. 2. Once the game loads far enough that you can see the map, close Star Traders 4X. 3. Open your saved game folder: %LOCALAPPDATA%\FactionWars\ and sort by Date modified. This folder is most likely in C:\Users\<YOU>\AppData\Local\FactionWars\ 3. The newest game_X.db is one you just created. We will overwrite this with the game we download. 4. Download the latest game_X.zip file from Google Drive and extract it to a temporary folder. 5. Rename the extracted files to match the game you identified above. Example, you extract game_101.db and renamed it to game_3.db as well as game_101_region_22.fog to game_3_region_22.fog
Since you don't do much with Windows, that's very likely it: If someone hasn't changed this option on your computer, the Windows default is to not show hidden files, in which case they won't show up in a search.
I can probably walk you through how to change this option (depending on version).
