Please make it the same format as the previous E4 era. Slow down the ticks to 10 minute ticks so the servers don’t die, and then add 1k ticks to era duration. The last era was a blast, and several people want to do it again. It doesn’t have to be the same time irl.
Also, pause structure building during pauses so plants and multis can’t instantly spawn and produce massive armies/ions in 0 ticks.
