Following a vote on Earth 5, the following changes will be made to the custom ruleset for E5:
- Relics will no longer be static. Relics will be mobile, as with other eras. Relics must remain within 12 travel ticks of a major landmass/continent (North America, South America, Greenland, Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia or Antarctica) Relics will move somewhat faster than on other worlds.
- Every mine/well will have 1 crystal placed on it at the start of the era.
- Mini events during the era will take place, with small prizes (capture the outpost, most conquers, most kills, etc).
- Isolated areas (Hawaii, NZ, etc) will no longer be blocked off. Players will be able to place their colonies in these locations.
In addition, two ideas failed to gain majority support, but were tie for yes/no votes. These ideas were “Increase the tick speed to 3 per hour” and “Close the world to new colony placement at tick 500” - Votes on these rules will be revisited no later than two eras from now (no later than Era 85)
