Unread post V Screen figs Question
I cannot beleive how much I've forgotten, so it's fun relearning the basics.

What figs are being counted in the V Screen? I had thought it was total sector and planet figs, just not the figs on the ships. But in the game I'm currently in a corp says they have more total figs on their planets than shows on the V screen.

Fig count is a funny thing. It doesn't count figs on unmanned ships. It also only updates periodically so when the fig count on planets gets into large numbers the total count can vary quite a bit.

It updates hourly, but only once per hour. It's easy to recognize, when you hit V it
should take a pause mid-V to calculate all of that. So new figs won't show up.

I understand that part, what I don't know is what figs are being counted. Are all figs being counted except the unmanned ships?

My opponent must not be able to count his figs, he says he has more on his planet than what's shown on the V-Screen.

Yes. Sector figs, manned ship figs, figs on planets.

Good probability that he's lying and doesn't think you'll catch it.

No one would try and deceive another player in a game of war would they?

Well, that's what I thought natually. There's been a lot of question about who had the figs, and one corp claims to have more than the V-Screen. I just wanted to confirm that I remembered correctly is all.

V-Screen all figs except unmanned ships - check! :wink:
